Arbaeen Commemorated Across the World With Fervour
Nearly 17.5 million pilgrims have so far poured in the sacred land of Karbala for annual fortieth day commemorations of martyrdom anniversary of Maulaa Hussain [AS] and his noble companions.
In December 2013 earlier last year ,nearly 20 million flocked to pay homage to the supreme sacrifice of Maulaa Hussain [AS] and his noble companions on the occassion of Arba'een-e-Hussaini[AS] , an event which is marked by intense love ,devotion ,passion and complete annihiliation in the way and rememberance of Maulaa Hussain [AS] and the household of [Holy Prophet PBUH] as tens of thousands of devotees complete several hundreds of kilometers of the journey on foot to see a glimpse of Shrine of martyrs of Karbala and paying salutations to them.
Several devotees living in najaf and other cities traverse the distance ,dedicating their Ziyarat to Maulaa Hussain [AS] on behalf of his lovers else where in the world ,who could not make it to Karbala on Arba'een.
The surrounding areas resonate with Hussaini message and true Hussaini traditions of hospitality are everywhere to be seen as children , elderlies ,ladies and men of all ages are the guests of Hussain [AS] from all over the world and nearby tribesmen and their families accord extremely humble and warm welcome to the guests of Hussain[AS] serving them and looking after them fully well ,with their heart and soul.
Terrorist attacks and continued threats of takfiri terrorist organization [IS] known with arabs as DAESH
could not do even an iota of reduction in the high spirits of Azadaaran and Zayereen as the takfiri mindset suffers yet another defeat at the hands of Hussain [AS] .
Stringent security measures have been taken this year due to heightened threat level this year ,although momineen are firmly planted as the Shia and Sunni muslims have been achieving comprehensive victories against takfiri terrorists operating in Iraq ever since the highest jurisprudent leadership of Ayatullah ul Uzma Sayyid Ali Sistani issued a call for Jihad-e-Kifayee against Daesh and was ably backed up by the highest Sunni leadership in the country with nearly 15 million volunteering in a few hours for the Jihad-e-Kifayee ,crushing the head of the takfiri terrorist organisation.
Else where in other parts of the world Arbaeen commemorations are underway across all the continents and specially countries like Saudi Arabia, Bahrain ,Lebanon ,Iran,Yemen ,Kashmir,India,Afganistan and Pakistan where Azadari is an old and strong tradition .
Chalo HUSSAIN [AS] ki taqleed kar ke bhi dekhain !
ke sirf soag mananay se kuch nahi hoga !
Utho ke hum bhi jhukaa dein kisi yazid ka sar!
Lahu ke ashk bahanay se kuch nahi hoga !
