There is a prayer which has been recommended to read every night during the month of Ramadan. This prayer is called Dua Iftitah which we ask God in a part of it, to sand blessings on the twelfth imam, the last savior of the humanity, the man who is awaiting for us to return, filling the world with justice and equity:

اللّٰهُمَّ وَصَلِّ عَلَىٰ وَلیِّ أَمْرِکَ الْقائِمِ الْمُؤَمَّلِ، وَالْعَدْلِ الْمُنْتَظَرِ
خدایا، درود فرست بر ولی امرت! بر آن قائم آرزو شده و آن عدل مورد انتظار
O’ Allah! Send blessings on the guardian of your command,the Qaem [Imam Mahdi], the hope and the awaited justice!

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

Today was amazing!
I feel I was going on a walk toward Karbala on Arbaeen but surprisingly I was in Qom , a holy city in Iran, near the capital city of Tehran. I’ve seen so many different flags in today’s rally against Zionism and USA. There were more flags than what I’ve seen on Arbaeen. I did not even know the name of countries I’ve seen their flags. At first I thought some Iranian people might pick up some flags for the Quds day but their faces were not seem to be Iranian people. I also asked some of them to be sure about it and I found that’s true. The Quds day of this year was a picture of the unity of nations to support Muslim people of Palestine against the occupying regime of Zionism.
I only took the photos of some flags in the rally and I have taken them while I was exactly at the end of the path of the rally not in the middle of it. that’s why you can not see the crowd in some photos.
I also asked her for the name of her country but Read More…
Recently , I searched again for the quotes about Imam Hussain, the prophet Muhammad’s grandson, in Sunni collections of quotes and I found some other traditions about him by the holy prophet Muhammad (PBUH) at here.
The following image is a quote I found it about the holy prophet Muhammad’s view toward those who fight with Imam Ali, Lady Fatima, Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain (PBUH).
I continued my search through the references mentioned below the quote for confirmation and I found it correct.
The Prophet said to Ali, Fatemah, Hasan and Hussain (PBUT):
“I am in war with those who will fight you, and in peace with those who are peaceful to you.”
