By: Mohamed Ali

MALMO, Sweden: Marking Arbaeeniyato Al-Imam Al-Hussein (fortieth day after the martyrdom of Imam Hussein), a mourning procession was taken out in Malmo, Sweden on Saturday January 22, Safar 17.

Despite minus temperatures, large number of devotees of Ahlil Beit (AS), both Muslims and non-Muslims, belonging to Sweden, Norway, Finland, Holland, Denmark, Iran and Afghanistan participated in the procession to pay homage to Al-Imam Al-Hussein bin Ali (AS), the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (S) and his 72 faithful companions who rendered supreme sacrifice some 14, 00 years ago in the burning desert of Karbala for defense of religion and shariah and safety of high human values.

Holding standards of Abu Al-Fadhl Al-Abbas bin Ali (AS), the mourners were chanting elegies and beating their chests and head to signify their grief.
