Happy birthday of Imam Hussain (PBUH), the prophet Muhammad’s grandson and the third Shia Imam; The one who God placed the cure in his grave’s soil; the one who prophet Muhammad said about him: “I am from Hussain and Hussain is from me and God loves who loves Hussain”.
Imam Hussain is the one who is always in our hearts. We never forget how the enemies of Islam killed him in the battle of Karbala and we always see how the descendants of those enemies are still trying to kill Imam Hussain’s name and distort his true way but we are also awaiting for the revenge in companion with Imam Mahdi, the man from the descendant of Imam Hussain, the man who will introduce himself by Imam Hussain when he returns and that is also the time which the prophet Jesus will also come back to help him.

Imam Reza (PBUH): If you like to visit God with no sin, make the pilgrimage to Imam Hussain
Ref. Al-Amali Shaykh saduq, v.1, p.192
قال الرضا علیه السلام: إن سرک أن تلقى الله عز وجل ولا ذنب علیک، فزر الحسین
امام رضا علیه السلام می فرمایند: اگر دوست داری بدون گناه به ملاقات خدا بروی، به زیارت امام حسین علیه السلام برو

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 :
Imam Hussain was the prophet Muhammad’s grandson who refused to pay allegiance to the tyrant of his time thus he along with his few followers were all brutally killed on the day of Ashura at the battlefield of Karbala about 14 centuries ago but every year, Muslim people around the world participate in the mourning ceremonies and processions to commemorate the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussain.
Why they have been weeping for Imam Hussain for centuries?! Why the holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and other Shia Imams were crying for Imam Hussain and why they have also recommend us to cry for him (PBUH)?
Imam Khomeini , the founder of Islamic republic of Iran has stated the reason of weeping for Imam Hussain (PBUH) in his speech. The following image includes a part of Imam Khomeini’s speech in the year 1969 (several years before the victory of Islamic revolution).
Imam Khomeini stated in his speech:
“…Now, a group has appeared demanding that: “Do not commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (PBUH) and other Infallible Shia Imams.” They do not know the outcome and consequences of this mourning and lamentation. They do not realize that it is the uprising of Imam Hussain (PBUH) against tyranny that has been conserved up to this time and has set off this movement [Islamic revolution]. This movement is a ray, a reflection of Imam Hussain’s uprising. They do not know that weeping for Imam Hussain (PBUH) means perpetuation of his uprising and maintaining the fact that even a small number could stand up against a great empire. This is the Imam Hussain’s instruction. This is an instruction for all people that: “Every day is an Ashura and each territory is Karbala!” This instruction implies that Imam Hussain’s movement must be kept alive and active everywhere and at all times.
Imam Hussain (PBUH) with his few men scarified himself for Islam. He stood up and said: “No!” to a great empire ; and his “No” must be conserved daily and at everywhere; and these mourning sessions are also held for the perpetuation of the same “No”.
Our children and youth should not consider this matter as a matter of “weeping nation”. The “weeping nation” has been induced by others to you. They (the enemies of Islam) afraid of such weeping because it is a cry in support of the oppressed. It is an outcry in opposition to the tyrants. These organized processions and rituals are against the cruelty and injustice, They have rose up. You must keep these rituals alive. These are the religious signs which must be kept alive, These are the political signs which must be conserved…”

Tonight is the first night of Muharram in 2018.
People around the world have been prepared for the mourning ceremonies since several days ago and now all over the cities are covered in black. The smell of Muharram has been propagated through the air and our hearts are started to be burned again for Imam Hussain’s martyrdom.
Tonight is the first night of mourning for the martyrdom of the prophet Muhammad’s grandson , Imam Hussain, in Shia believes as Imam Reza (PBUH) has stated:
“No one could have seen my father’s smile when the month of Muharram came. Sadness was increasing in his face day by day till the tenth of Muharram [day of Ashura] and when the tenth day of Muharram would dawn, it would be a day of grief and weeping for him.” – Imam Reza (PBUH)
Reference: Al-Amali, Al-Shaykh Al-Saduq, P.191
قال الرضا علیه السلام: كان أبي (صلوات الله عليه) إذا دخل شهر المحرم لا يرى ضاحكا، وكانت الكآبة تغلب عليه حتى يمضي منه عشرة أيام، فإذا كان يوم العاشر كان ذلك اليوم يوم مصيبته وحزنه وبكائه، ويقول: هو اليوم الذي قتل فيه الحسين (صلوات الله عليه
امام رضا علیه السلام فرمود: هر گاه ماه محرم فرا می رسید، پدرم (موسی بن جعفر علیه السلام) دیگر خندان دیده نمی شد و غم و افسردگی بر او غلبه می یافت تا آن که ده روز از محرم می گذشت، روز دهم محرم که می شد، آن روز، روز مصیبت و اندوه و گریه پدرم بود
