Holy Karbala shrouds black, Husseini traditions back

By: Ismail Zabeeh

HOLY CITY OF KARBALA, Iraq: Everything belonging to observation of days of Holy Prophet (p)ís Ahlil Bayt (p) - traditions, customs and culture - that were in 70s of the last century and Saddam regime had banned them, have returned in the Iraqi society.

The entire holy city of Karbala, its shopping malls, markets and official and non-official buildings have been shrouded in black from the very first day of Moharram rather prior to it when the leaders of Husseini organizations and processions began preparations to commemorate the TRAGEDY OF KARBALA.

Thousands of big takaya and camps have been set up throughout the route to Holy Karbala and Holy Najaf to facilitate Husseini guests with food, hot and cold drinks, and fruits besides providing them place to rest.

Tabarrok of Imam Hussein (p) is being cooked in very giant pots.  

  "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 ..
