Moula Ali Urs at Moula Ali dargah in Hyderabad is set to start tomorrow. The Urs would continue for five days starting tomorrow and about 10 Lakh devotees are expected to visit the dargah during these celebrations.
The Moula Ali Urs commemorates the birthday of Moula Ali, the son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad. For the Shia community, Hazrath Ali is the first Imam and successor to Prophet Muhammad, while the Sunni community sees him as the fourth Khalifa. Moula Ali's birthday falls every year on the 13th day of Rajab, the seventh month of Islamic calendar and it is a tradition in Hyderabad for more than 400 years now to celebrate this occasion near the dargah on top of Moula Ali hill.
