May God hasten the reappearance of Imam Mahdi
On the last Friday, the Islamic community fell into the deep sorrow for the martyrdom of the major General Qassem Soleimani, Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis and their companions who had played a major role against the terrorism group of ISIS but they were assassinated by the true terrorist of the world, the U.S government, the government who had created the ISIS group by himself.
The U.S government and his friends should know that they have killed themselves not the General Soleimani and they must wait for the harsh revenge by the Muslim community of the world as Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah said: “the General Soleimani’s shoe is more valuable than the Trump’s head”
General Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandes
Every one of us are now the avengers of the blood of our commanders.
The people of the world should know that the world are going to enter to the new era, the era that the first power of the world is replaced by the the power of the Islamic world.
General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), was frequently pictured on the frontlines during anti-terrorism operations.

Tonight is the night of Arbaeen 2019 and tomorrow will be the day of Arbaeen, the 40th day following the day of Ashura so millions of people from different countries have flock to the holy shrine of Imam Hussain (PBUH) for the pilgrimage.
Many thanks to Allah who allowed us once more to walk from Najaf to Karbala for Arbaeen 2019 and also many thanks to Imam Hussain (PBUH) who permitted us to come to his holy shrine again. I hope Imam Hussain (PBUH) accept all of us for Arbaeen of the next year In-Sha-Allah
There were many flags of different countries on the way toward the holy shrine of Imam Hussain from Najaf to Karbala but I could take a few photos of them :
Arbaeen is the magnificent epic; the biggest international gathering which is held every year more enthusiastically than before.
Arbaeen in the year 2019, will fall on Saturday, October 19.

Every year, millions of people from different countries flock to the city of Karbala for the pilgrimage of the holy shrine of Imam Hussain (PBUH), the prophet Muhammad’s grandson on the day of Arbaeen. Even non-Muslim people take part in this massive march.
Lots of these people prefer to walk more than 80 kilometers from Najaf toward Karbala for the pilgrimage. This happens not only because of their true love toward Imam Hussain, but also because this is a best way to introduce Imam Hussain to the world; a way to show their preparation for the arrival of Imam Mahdi, the last savior of man from descendant of Imam Hussain.
If you decide to take part in this journey of love, you should know that you do not need to worry about drink, food or even accommodation during this journey. One backpack is enough to start as the hospitality of Iraqian people toward the pilgrims of Imam Hussain (PBUH) on the way toward Karbala is amazing and makes you to experience a new different social life style on Arbaeen.
The text in the above image is taken from a quote by Imam Sadigh (PBUH) :
قال الصادق ع: مَنْ أَتَى قَبْرَ الْحُسَیْنِ ع مَاشِیاً کَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ بِکُلِّ خُطْوَةٍ أَلْفَ حَسَنَةٍ وَ مَحَا عَنْهُ أَلْفَ سَیِّئَةٍ وَ رَفَعَ لَهُ أَلْفَ دَرَجَةٍ
Whoever walks for the pilgrimage of Imam Hussain (PBUH), God will record 1000 awards for his/her every step and will wipe out his/her 1000 sins and will give him/her higher ranking number [in the heaven] by 1000
امام صادق(ع): کسى که پیاده به زیارت امام حسین(ع) برود خداوند به هر قدمى که بر مى دارد هزار حسنه برایش ثبت و هزار گناه از وى محو مىفرماید و هزار درجه، مرتبهاش را بالا مىبرد

” Nowadays, we need to introduce #Hussain ibn Ali to the #world. The world of tyranny and corruption needs to know the liberty of Hussain…. If Hussain (PBUH) is introduced to the world, Islam will be introduced, the #Quran will be introduced…”. The supreme leader Ayatullah #Khamenei said it yesterday on the 18th sep. 2019.
Yesterday, the leader Ayatullah khamenei had a meeting with #Iraqian people who host and serve the pilgrims of Imam Hussain’s holy shrine during Arbaeen in Iraq (PBUH)
The leader thanked Iraqian people for their hospitality and he also said that: ” The message of Imam Hussain (PBUH) is the message of saving the world. The magnificent Arbaeen movement is spreading this message in the world, and this movement should be fortified day after day…”

Why did imam Hussain move to Karbala? Why did Imam Hussain rise up? Did Imam Hussain sacrifice his life?
Imam Hussian (PBUH) was the prophet Muhammad’s grandson, who left the Hajj pilgrimage and moved to Iraq with all of his family and friends, then he was surrounded by Yazid’s army of 30,000 people on his way, in the land called Karbala, so there were no way out for Imam Hussain and all his 72 friends except defending themselves. They fight with no water for three days and all of them were killed and beheaded on the day of Ashura and all their women and children were captured and moved to Syria along with the heads.
Did Imam Hussain knew his fate in Karbala?
Not only Imam Hussain knew that he will be killed on the day of Ashura in Karbala but also all the Prophets of God knew about the detail of this catastrophe and all cried for Imam Hussain (PBUH).
But why did Imam Hussain move to Karbala?
There were three causes for Imam Hussain’s movement or in a better word, Imam Hussain revolution which we have already explained it in a post before. The causes were gained from a book written by a great Iranian philosopher and cleric, professor Mortaza Motahari.
The summary of these three causes were as follows:
- Imam Hussain moved because he did not not want to pay allegiance to the tyranny of the time,
- About 100,000 people of Kufa had sent 18,000 letters to Imam Hussain and invited him to Iraq to re-establish an Islamic government,
- Imam Hussain wanted to reform the Muslim community of his grandfather and promote virtue and prevent vice
Which one was the main reason of Imam Hussain’s revolution? Read More…
Today is the anniversary of the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain, the one who revived Islam by his blood. He scarified himself to save the humanity , to save us.
Peace be upon Imam Hussain and his descendant, Imam Mahdi (May Allah hasten his reappearance)
A quote about Imam Hussain by Imam Khomeini (The founder of the Islamic republic of Iran)
The story of Imam Hussain (PBUH) on the day of Ashura in Karbala has a heat that still burn our hearts over centuries. Day of Ashura was a day in which even the heavenly angles wept for Hussain (PBUH), the prophet Muhammad’s grandson.
Imam Mahdi, the 12th Shia Imam and the grandson of Imam Hussain (PBUH) has said in “Ziarat Nahiya” that not only the heavenly angles but the skies, the mountains, the oceans and even the fishes wept for Imam Hussain:
“…Mourning commemorations were held for you [O’ Hussain!] in the utmost exalted place Heaven,
and the dark-eyed Maidens [of Paradise] hit their own heads and faces in grief,
The skies and their inhabitants wept,
as did Paradise and its keepers,
The mountains and their surroundings,
The oceans and their fishes,
The heavens and their servants
The Ka’ba, and the Station (of Abraham),
The sacred Monument,
and Mecca and its sanctuary …” (Read the full Ziarat Nahiya at here).
I do not know how these can be happen but I know that there is a verse in the holy Quran saying all the creatures exalt God but you can not understand:
“The seven heavens and the earth and whatever is in them exalt Him. And there is not a thing except that it exalts [ Allah ] by His praise, but you do not understand their [way of] exalting. Indeed, He is ever Forbearing and Forgiving.” [The holy Quran, 17:44]
“The month of Muharram is the month of Imam Hussain,…The month of attendance to the preservation of the religion, God’s religion, and resistance against those powers which confront the religion…”
Today is the first day of Muharram in the year 2019 and I’m writing this post from the holy city of Mashhad, from a place near to Imam Reza’s holy shrine; So Let’s offer our deepest condolence to Imam Reza (PBUH) and to Imam of our time for the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain (PBUH), the prophet Muhammad’s grandson.
It is my first trip to Mashhad in Muharram. The holy shrine is covered in black and the people are also dressed in black for the mortyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain (PBUH).There are also some traditional camps held in the streets by people who love Imam Hussain to offer free tea, drink or food to the mourners and other people in the streets.
Yesterday I found that Imam Khamenei, the grand leader, also travelled to Mashhad to clean the holy grave of Imam Reza (PBUH) to prepare it for the beginig of Muharram.
The following statment is one of the grand leader’s speech about Muharram given in about two years ago :
“The month of Muharram is the month of Imam Hussain; It is the month of Hussaini, The month of all values embodied inside the Master of Martyrs (PBUH); the month of Martyrdom , the month of Jihad, the month of sincerity, the month of loyalty and the month of forgiveness; the month of attendance to the preservation of the religion, God’s religion, and resistance against those powers which confront the religion. The auspicious existence of the Master of Martyrs and the events of Ashura, Muharram and other such events are the embodiment of these values.
The belief that the uprising of the Master of Martyrs has been preserved Islam is really a correct belief as this event has been become livelier, day by day, in the course of time and after many centuries.
Today, this ceremony is being held in a warmer and more enthusiastic and comprehensive manner than a hundred years ago when there were no appearant opponents for the religious believes of people like today’s opponents. All these matters has a meaning. All these matters reveal certain truths and a movement which is moving forward in the world with the leadership of Hussain ibn Ali (PBUH). In-Sha-Allah this movement will go forward and will resolve the problems of nations.”
Today was amazing!
I feel I was going on a walk toward Karbala on Arbaeen but surprisingly I was in Qom , a holy city in Iran, near the capital city of Tehran. I’ve seen so many different flags in today’s rally against Zionism and USA. There were more flags than what I’ve seen on Arbaeen. I did not even know the name of countries I’ve seen their flags. At first I thought some Iranian people might pick up some flags for the Quds day but their faces were not seem to be Iranian people. I also asked some of them to be sure about it and I found that’s true. The Quds day of this year was a picture of the unity of nations to support Muslim people of Palestine against the occupying regime of Zionism.
I only took the photos of some flags in the rally and I have taken them while I was exactly at the end of the path of the rally not in the middle of it. that’s why you can not see the crowd in some photos.
I also asked her for the name of her country but Read More…
Arbaeen is the world’s annually greatest gathering, the magnificent movement of followers and lovers of the holy prophet Muhammad’s family toward the holy shrine of Imam Hussain. Arbaeen is the 40th day following the day of Ashura and this year in 2018, Arbaeen will fall on the Tuesday in 30th Oct.
People around the world have already started their journey of Arbaeen to the city of Karbala for the pilgrimage of Imam Hussain, the prophet Muhammad’s grandson.
Some people walk 80 kilometers and even more from Najaf to Karbala to show their true love toward Imam Hussain (PBUH) and to the world. It was also narrated that each step toward Karbala wipes out one sin and leads to one award.
This year , I’m going to be one of the 25 millions of people toward Karbala In-Sha-Allah and if Allah helps us, you can follow @husayn.ashura on Instagram to see the photos or short videos during my journey.
Day of Ashura is not a day of celebration nor a day of self-mutilation. Day of Ashura for Shia Muslim people and other Imam Hussain’s lovers is the day of grief and deep sorrow. people around the world dressed in black commemorate the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain, the prophet Muhammad’s grandson on the day of Ashura.
On the day of Ashura, mourning processions and ceremonies for Imam Hussain are held all over the world as well as all the cities of Iran. One of the greatest mourning procession is the mourning procession of The Imam Sadiq University which is held annually in north of Tehran, the capital city in Iran.
