The people on the day of account will be of different classes and stations.

Hawzah News Agency – The religious service of hawzah news agency dedicates a hadith from the commander of the faithful, Imam Ali, peace be upon him, on the occasion of Eid al-Ghadīr:

والنّاسُ يَومَئذٍ على‏ طَبَقاتٍ ومَنازِلَ، فمِنهُم مَن يُحاسَبُ حِساباً يَسيراً ويَنْقَلِبُ إلى‏ أهْلِهِ مَسْروراً، ومِنهُمُ الّذينَ يَدخُلونَ الجَنّةَ بغَيرِ حِسابٍ؛ لأ نَّهُم لَم يَتَلَبّسوا مِن أمْرِ الدُّنيا بشَي‏ءٍ، وإنّما الحِسابُ هُناكَ على‏ مَن تَلَبّسَ بها هاهُنا، ومِنهُم مَن يُحاسَبُ على‏ النَّقِيرِ والقِطْميرِ ويَصيرُ إلى‏ عَذابِ السَّعيرِ.

'The people on that day will be of different classes and stations. Some of them will be given an easy account and return to their people happy. Some of them will enter Paradise without giving an account, for they had nothing to do with matters of the worldly life, for indeed the account there is for those who entangle themselves with them [i.e. worldly affairs] here. And some of them will be asked to account for every speck and spot and will be made to suffer the punishment of the Blaze.'

Eid al-Ghadīr:

ʿEid al-Ghadīr (Arabic: عید الغَدیر) is among important feasts and happy holidays of Shi'a held on Dhu l-Hijja 18; when according to reports, the noble Prophet (s) appointed Ali b. Abi Talib (a) as his caliph and the Imam after himself following an order from God. That event happened in the Prophet's (s) Hajjat al-Wida' (the Farewell Hajj), in 10/632 in a place called Ghadir Khumm.

In Shi'a hadiths, the anniversary has been called "Eid Allah al-Akbar" (the greatest eid of God), Eid of Ahl al-Bayt (a) and "Ashraf al-A'yad" (Most Honorable Eid). Shi'a celebrate this day around the world with various customs.

Eid al-Ghadīr mubarak.
