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 | On the way to Karbala

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.

I Recorded this video on my way from Najaf to Karbala about 10 days before the day of Arbaeen, on Nov. 1, 2017.

Many thanks to our Iraqian Muslim brothers and sisters for their hospitality 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.

On the way to Karbala

Karbala holds the holy shrine of the prophet Muhammad’s grandson and his companions, so millions of Muslims around the world make their way to the city of Karbala to commemorate the day of Arbaeen in every year.

The day of Arbaeen is 40 days following Ashura and in this year(2014) Arbaeen will fall on 13th December.

According to news, many pilgrims have begun a journey of 55 miles or so to Karbala by their own foot for the love of Imam Hussain (PBUH). Here are some photos of the previous years I’ve selected for you.
