Ziyarat Arbaeen

The day of Arbaeen 2020 is coming in less than a week and so sadly we are here at home, far from you O’ Aba Abdillah! [1] You know that all the way toward Karbala have been closed to stop Coronavirus spreading and we have no way toward the holy shrine of you!

We’ve got to obey the decisions made by national center of anti-corona in Iran, because the grand leader of the Islamic community, Imam Khamenei, has asked us not to do anything against their rules. He has also recommended that we express our love toward you at our homes and read Ziyarat Arbaeen in an attentive manner and complain of this situation to you! [2]

O’ Aba Abdillah! you know we wished to come, but it was not possible as you see this situation. Please help us in such a way you know it and accept us again. [3]

“علامات المؤمنین خمس : صلاةُ الاحدی و الخمسین و زیارةُ الاربعین والتـَختم فی الیَمین و تـَعفیرُ الجـَبین و الجَهر ببسم الله الرحمن الرحیم”
