Here I want to introduce the pure beliefs of Shia Muslims, the second largest branch of Islam which we believe it is the correct interpretation of Islam. Shia take its religion from the Prophet Muhammad and his Ahle-Beyt which are 12 Imams: Ali, Hassan, Hussein and 9 descendants of Imam Hussain.
The last Imam, Mahdi(AS) is still alive, but hidden. We expect him to be appeared in the near future Insha-Allah

Arbaeen 2016 Comming

About 12 days left until Arbaeen 2016; but pilgrims just started their spiritual journey towards Imam Hussein (AS)... Lots of people from Iran, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Pakistan, India, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Bahrain and Western countries began their walking from around 10 days before. They want to experience the best travel of the world. A travel on foot towards the heart of the earth, Karbala; where the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (AS) is.
Last year more than 26 million pilgrims walked towards Karbala to take part in the mourning rituals of Arba’een in Iraq (4 December 2015). (Ref: Arbaeen 2015 Gathering)

This year, hopefully I am one of the millions of Pilgrims of Imam Hussein (AS) InshaAllah.

What is Arbaeen

Arbaeen is the 40th day after Ashura in which Imam Hussein (as) and his companions martyred. In Arbaein, due to some historical documents, Imam Sajjad (AS), Seyeda Zeinab (the sister of Imam Hussein), and some other relatives of the Imam, came back to Karbala and mourned for Imam and other martyrs of the battle of Ashura.
After Saddam, walking to Karbala was released. Since then, every year, millions of Shia Muslims from all over the world travel to Karbala, the holy city of Iraq, to commemorate the religious ceremony of Arbaeen.
The walk from Najaf to Karbala is one of the most enlightening acts of worship a pilgrim can perform. The suffering and hardship imposed on the family of Imam Hussain (as) and the grandchildren of Prophet Muhammad (s) is felt in every step, and thus the love and respect for this holy family increases in the heart of the believer with every step that is taken towards the holy land of Karbala.

The largest gathering in the world

The biggest annual gathering

Longest continuous dining table

Largest number of people fed for free

Largest group of volunteers serving a single event

These are some records that must be registered in the Guinness Book for Arbaeen (+). All of these are under the imminent threat of suicide bombing and ISIS in Iraq.
About 20 million Muslims from about 10 days before, started a march towards the holy city of #Karbala to be over there for Arbaeen_2014. Last year about 18 million pilgrims visited the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (AS) in Arbaeen. Karbala is the city in where Imam Hussein (AS), the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) , and his companions were martyred in 61 AH. Unfortunately western news channels close their eyes on such important annual event, just because it may spread the culture of Islam and specially Shia... But as Holy Quran says, they can't do so:

یُرِ‌یدُونَ لِیُطْفِئُوا نُورَ‌ اللَّـهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَاللَّـهُ مُتِمُّ نُورِ‌هِ وَلَوْ کَرِ‌هَ الْکَافِرُ‌ونَ They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it.

I ask you dear Muslim brothers, please propagate this procession in social networks in such a way that satellite and TV channels were forced to show photos and videos of this ritual. You know that lots of people, even non Shia Muslims, are unaware of such a great gathering. Labbayk Ya Hussein Enjoy these photos from current wave towards Hussein (AS) in Arbaeen 2014 :

Arbaeen 2014

بزرگترین اجتماع صلح آمیز دنیا در حال اتفاق است و شبکه های بزرگ خبری دنیا چشمان خود را به روی آن بسته اند. دوستان فعال در فضای مجازی، آستین بالا بزنند. در گروههای مسلمان و غیر مسلمان در شبکه های اجتماعی لااقل خبر این اجتماع را منتشر کنید. مثل پستی که بنده در گروه 306 هزار نفری I Love Islam در گوگل پلاس گذاشتم: اربعین، بزرگترین اجتماع مسلمین در حرکت است. البته به دلیل حضور ناچیز شیعیان در این گروه بزرگ، کسی +1 نکرد!
