All Day


Arbaeen is a significant cultural holiday observed by Shia Muslims on Safar 20 or 21, the 40th day after Ashura, the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad. Arbaeen is the largest annual pilgrimage in the world, in which millions of people go to the city of Karbala in Iraq. It is a time of mourning and remembrance, where pilgrims walk long distances to visit the Imam Hussein Shrine and pay their respects. The holiday is also a symbol of unity and solidarity, as people from different backgrounds and cultures come together to honor the memory of Imam Hussein. Arbaeen is a testament to the enduring cultural traditions of Shia Muslims and their commitment to preserving their heritage.
