Ghadīr Khumm (Arabic : غدیر خم) is the name of a pond located in Khumm on the road from Mecca to Medina. In this place, on Dhu l-Hijja 18,10 (March 19, 632), the Prophet (s) announced Imam 'Ali (a) as his successor. This event is known as the event of Ghadir.
Ghadir Khumm is located 4 km away from Juhfa. Juhfa is approximately 64 km to the north of Mecca and is one of the five Miqats for pilgrims performing Hajj. Due to the water supply and the shade of a few trees, Ghadir Khumm was a stopping place for caravans.
