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 In Arbaein, due to some historical documents, Imam Sajjad (AS), Seyeda Zeinab (the sister of Imam Hussein), and some other relatives of the Imam, came back to Karbala and mourned for Imam and other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.
