Hundreds of thousands descending in Najaf to mourn Prophet (s)

By: Ismail Zabeeh

HOLY NAJAF, Iraq: It was Safar 28 when the chief of prophets, Prophet Muhammad b. Abdullal Al-Mostafa (peace be on him and his holy progeny) was martyred.

It has been a practice every year that mourners gather in the holy city of Najaf to commemorate the martyrdom anniversary of the Prophet (peace be on him and his holy progeny) at the holy shrine of his first infallible descendant, son-in-law and cousin Amir-ol Mominin Al-Imam Ali b. Abi Talib (peace be on him).

This year also, hundreds of thousands have been descending in Najaf to present their condolence marking the sad occasion to Al-Imam Ali (peace be on him). Throughout the ways leading to Najaf, security has been beefed up and arrangements have been made to ease the pilgrims.

  "Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE ..
