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.

Every year, millions of people from different countries flock to the city of Karbala for the pilgrimage of the holy shrine of Imam Hussain (PBUH), the prophet Muhammad’s grandson on the day of Arbaeen. Even non-Muslim people take part in this massive march.
Lots of these people prefer to walk more than 80 kilometers from Najaf toward Karbala for the pilgrimage. This happens not only because of their true love toward Imam Hussain, but also because this is a best way to introduce Imam Hussain to the world; a way to show their preparation for the arrival of Imam Mahdi, the last savior of man from descendant of Imam Hussain.
If you decide to take part in this journey of love, you should know that you do not need to worry about drink, food or even accommodation during this journey. One backpack is enough to start as the hospitality of Iraqian people toward the pilgrims of Imam Hussain (PBUH) on the way toward Karbala is amazing and makes you to experience a new different social life style on Arbaeen.
The text in the above image is taken from a quote by Imam Sadigh (PBUH) :
قال الصادق ع: مَنْ أَتَى قَبْرَ الْحُسَیْنِ ع مَاشِیاً کَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَهُ بِکُلِّ خُطْوَةٍ أَلْفَ حَسَنَةٍ وَ مَحَا عَنْهُ أَلْفَ سَیِّئَةٍ وَ رَفَعَ لَهُ أَلْفَ دَرَجَةٍ
Whoever walks for the pilgrimage of Imam Hussain (PBUH), God will record 1000 awards for his/her every step and will wipe out his/her 1000 sins and will give him/her higher ranking number [in the heaven] by 1000
امام صادق(ع): کسى که پیاده به زیارت امام حسین(ع) برود خداوند به هر قدمى که بر مى دارد هزار حسنه برایش ثبت و هزار گناه از وى محو مىفرماید و هزار درجه، مرتبهاش را بالا مىبرد

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.
