When is Arbaeen 2016?
Arbaeen is the 40 days following the day of Ashura and this year, Arbaeen 2016 will fall on the November 21 in Iraq.
Every year Muslim people leave their usual lives in their countries to walk 80 Km toward the holy shrine of Imam Husayn who was martyred at Karbala.
Arbaeen is the world’s largest annual peaceful gathering held by Muslim people around the world. It is an amazing spiritual journey in which you do not have to concern about food, water or accommodations. Everything is prepared for the pilgrims of Imam Husayn by non-government Muslim people for free on the way to Karbala. You can experience a true love in the real life by all the Muslim people around you especially by the Iraqi Shia people. They do it as they are the followers of Imam Husayn who gave all he had for the God’s sake.
This year, I am going to walk from Najaf to Karbala by my whole family In-Sha-Allah and If God helped me I will publish some photos of this fantastic journey on my Instagram page: @husayn.ashura
