Pilgrimage of Imam Hussain on Arbaeen was stated as a sign of a believer (read  more) and walking toward Karbala for Imam Hussain’s pilgrimage is highly recommended in the Islamic school, However, non-Muslim people from different religions also mark the day of Arbaeen.

Imam Hussain’s lovers walk at least 80 kilometers from Najaf to Karbala to show their love toward Imam Hussain and introduce him to the world in peace,  helping the reappearance of Imam Mahdi as Imam Mahdi is a man from descendant of Imam Hussain and he will also introduce himself to the world by Imam Hussain (PBUH).

People who love to experience Arbaeen walk, can join all the other pilgrims in Iraq individually or under a group.

I found the NGO Arbaeen Europe deploying over one thousand pilgrims to Iraq annually in order to participate on Arbaeen. As it is stated in its site, the pilgrims from different age come from all over the Europe, and even the world. and you can register for Arbaeen walk at anytime of the year via online registration system at ngo-arbaeen.com
