• Holy shrine of Imam Hussein (PBUH) in Karbala packed with pilgrims

Shia Muslims from around the world visit the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (PBUH), the third infallible successor of Prophet Mohammad (Blessings of God upon him and his progeny) to commemorate Arba’een.

Arba’een occurs 40 days after Ashura, the tenth day of the lunar calendar month of Moharram, when Imam Hussein (PBUH), the grandson of Prophet Mohammad (Blessings of God upon him and his progeny) was martyred at the hands of the tyrant of the time, Yazid I, back in the seventh century.
