On the way to Karbala

Karbala holds the holy shrine of the prophet Muhammad’s grandson and his companions, so millions of Muslims around the world make their way to the city of Karbala to commemorate the day of Arbaeen in every year.

The day of Arbaeen is 40 days following Ashura and in this year(2014) Arbaeen will fall on 13th December.

According to news, many pilgrims have begun a journey of 55 miles or so to Karbala by their own foot for the love of Imam Hussain (PBUH). Here are some photos of the previous years I’ve selected for you.
