Celebrating the festival of Neyrouz


Khomeini celebrates the day of Neyrouz. He recommends bathing and prescribes fasting:


ومنها أي الأغسال المندوبة  غسل يومي العيدين، ومنها يوم النيروز

And amongst the recommended bathing days are the days of the two ‘Id and the day of Neyrouz.[1]


He has thus equated Neyrouz with the two days ‘Id of the Muslims. He also equates it to the day of Ghadir which they say is a part of Islam:


منها يوم الغدير وهو الثامن عشر من ذي الحجة . يعني مندوبات الصوم . ومنها يوم النيروز

Amongst the recommended fasting days is the Day of Ghadir on the 18th of Dhu al Hijjah and the day of Neyrouz.[2]
