5. Perform prayer of 2 rakaat of Eid Al-Ghadeer before a half an hour of mid-day. In each Rakaat after Sura Al-Hamd, recite 10 times Sura Ahad (Qul ho Allah ho Ahad), 10 times Sura Al-Qadr (Inna anzalna ho fi lailat-il-Qadr) and 10 times Ayat al-Kursi. This prayer is highly rewarding and whatever dua is asked for from Allah(swt), inshallah, will be granted. It is recommended to recite this prayer closer to but before mid-day since that was the time when Prophet Mohammad(pbuh&hf) announced the successorship and nomination of Imam Ali (pbuh) as master of the faithfuls.
After the prayers go into prostration and recite:
100 times "Shukran Lillah" Thank to Allah and 100 times " Alhamd-o-lillah".
Imam Jaffer Sadiq(a.s.) says that whoever does so will be like a person who accepted the Imamate and Caliphate of Imam Ali(a.s.) and pledged allegiance at the Ghadeer-e-Khum in front of Prophet Mohammad(pbuh&hf). The person who performs this act will also like those who will be with the Imam Zaman(pbuh) under his flag.
6. It is customary among the followers of AhlulBayt (pbut) to greet each other on this day and shake their hands and say to each other the following : "Akhaituka fil lah-e wa safetoka fil lah-e wa safahtoka fil lah-e wa aahad tullah-a wa malaekatahu wa kutubahu wa rusulahu wa ambiya-uhu wa aaimmatul ma'soomeena alaihumus salam ala anni in kuntu min ahlil jannati wash shafa'ate wa oozina lee be an adkhulal jannah la adkhulaha illa wa anta ma ee aa". As well as:
اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ الّذى جَعَلَنا مِنَ الْمُتَمَسِّكينَ بِوِلايَةِ اَميرِ الْمُؤْمِنينَ وَالاْئِمَّةِ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلامُ

[Praise be to Allah, who blessed us to be among -those who cling and hold to the "Wilaya" (Divine Leadership) of Ameer Al-Mo'mineen and all the Imams, peace be on them all.]
The other believer should also greet him/her saying: "Asqat tu anka jame'ah haqooq-il ukhuwate ma khalad dua-e waz ziarat-e wash shafa-ah" As well as :
اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ الَّذى اَكْرَمَنا بِهذَا الْيَوْمِ وَجَعَلَنا مِنَ الْمُوفينَ بِعَهْدِهِ اِلَيْنا وَميثاقِهِ الَّذى واثَقَنا بِهِ مِنْ وِلايَةِ وُلاةِ اَمْرِهِوَالْقُوّامِ بِقِسْطِهِ وَلَمْ يَجْعَلْنا مِنَ الْجاحِدينَ وَالْمُكَذِّبينَ بِيَوْمِ الدّينِ

[Praise be to Allah who honoured us with this day, and included us among those who have been given all that which was promised to them in his covenant and pledge, and have been tied together with the bonds of his Wilaya his guardians of the religious laws who established justice; and did not disgrace us to be among those who deny the truth and treat the Day of Judgement as a false fable.]
7. Recite 100 times :
اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ الّذى جَعَلَ كَمالَ دينِهِ وَتَمامَ نِعْمَتِهِ بِوِلايَةِ اَميرِ الْمُؤ مِنينَ عَلىِّ بْنِ اَبى طالِبٍ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ
