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!  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! 
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.

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

Arbaeen 2017 is coming and millions of Imam Hussain’s lovers are going to Karbala for Arbaeen to mark the martyrdom of Imam Hussain, the holy prophet Muhammad’s grandson.
Millions of Muslim people walk at least 80 kilometers toward the holy shrine of Imam Hussain for Arbaeen. There is no concern about food, drink and accommodation on this journey as Imam Hussain’s lovers kindly provide what the pilgrims need in this way.

Arbaeen is the day in which the world’s biggest peaceful gathering is held annually around the holy shrine of Imam Hussain, the heart of the city of Karbala and millions of Imam Hussain lovers across the world flock into Karbala for the pilgrimage of Imam Hussain on Arbaeen.
A huge numbers of pilgrims arrive in Karbala on foot. They walk for at least 80 kilometers from Najaf to the holy shrine of Imam Hussain in Karbala. Walking on Arbaeen is the best way to introduce Imam Hussain to the world and to help the reappearance of Imam Mahdi, the 12th Imam. Arbaeen is also a way to memorize how much difficulties lady Zeainab and Hussain’s children tolerate as they were captive toward Karbala although there is no concern at all about food, drink and accommodation on the way to Karbala as some Imam Hussain’s lovers especially the Iraqian Shia Muslim people kindly provide what pilgrims might need on this way. They prepare everything for the pilgrims for free, for the love of Imam Hussain.

It’s really hard to me to explain what I have seen on this way. Giving up the usual life exactly at the time being very busy is not very simple but when you gave it all up, you can experience a completely different life style on the way toward Karbala. You can feel a fresh love inside your heart toward Imam Hussain despite the difficulties of walking you might have in this way. You can see millions of people with different nationalities and languages surrendering you in this way with the same love toward Hussain inside their hearts as the holy prophet Muhammad stated that “Surely , there exists in the hearts of the believers, with respect to the martyrdom of Hussain, a heat that never subsides.”
The pilgrimage of Imam Hussain on Arbaeen was said to be one of the signs of a believers according to the quote received from Imam Hassan al-Asgari.

Arbaeen is a day on which the largest gathering in the world is held by Shia Muslim people in peace. Each year, the holy shrine of Imam Husayn in the city of Karbala receives an increasing number of pilgrims across all over the world. It was reported officially that on Arbaeen 2016, more than 20 millions pilgrims have gathered at Karbala. Despite the all modern technologies, millions of pilgrims prefer to walk 80 Km from Najaf to Karbala to show their love toward Imam Husayn and to his living son, the 12th Shia Imam (Imam Mahdi). In addition, It is quoted that the pilgrimage of Imam Husayn on Arbaeen is a sign of a believer and every single step toward the holy shrine of Imam Husayn, can wipe out one sin and have one reward.
Thanks God, this year I was among the millions of pilgrims who walk to Karbala. To be honest, the journey was not such easy but undauntedly, it was an excellent journey that one should experienced it by him/herself. A different life style in which only one backpack is enough to start the journey as everything is prepared for free by Shia muslim people on the way to Karbala.
Many thanks to Iraqi people who compete each others to be at our service for God’s sake and for the love of Imam Husayn. They offer everything they have to pilgrims as they wish to be like Imam Husayn who gave everything he had to revive Islam.
I do apologize at first that my photos can not show the all aspects of Arbaeen as I am not a photographer and I took photos with my mobile phone.
