Husseini processions flock to Karbala shrines

By: Ismail Zabeeh

HOLY CITY OF KARBALA, Iraq: Arbaeeniyatol Imam al-Hussein commemoration that began on 17 Safar, the second lunar month, will reach on its peak on Safar 20 Thursday in the holy city of Karbala.

Since dawn on Safar 17 Monday, thousands of husseini mawakeb have been marching towards the holy shrines of Al-Imam Abi Abdellah Al-Hussein (AS) and his brother and chief of his army Abo’l Fadhl Al-Abbas (AS).

They enter the husseini shrine from Baab Al-Qiblah and after touching through its compound they step out to go into Abbasi shrine from Baab Al-Imam Al-Hasan (AS) while beating their chests to signify their grief on the brutal slaughter of Al-Imam Al-Hussein (AS) in the scorching desert of Karbala some 1400 years ago at the hands of Yazidi forces.
