Iraqi Source of Emulation Attends Arbaeen March
Grand Ayatollah Bashir Najafi, one of Iraq’s sources of emulation, took part in the great march of pilgrims toward Karbala to mark Arbaeen.
According to Noon news website, the grand source of emulation is among many religious, cultural, and political figures attending the event.
Arbaeen marks the 40th day after the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (AS), the third Ahlul Bait Imam.
A few days before Arbaeen, millions of pilgrims start marching toward the holy city of Karbala, which hosts Imam Hussein’s (AS) holy shrine.
They converge on Karbala during the day of Arbaeen, which this year falls on Wednesday, December 2.
