Photos of My First Visit of Karbala in Arbaeen 2014 on Foot by: Shia Muslim

In Arbaeen 2014, I had the opportunity of traveling to Iraq for the first time and participating in the largest peaceful walking in the world. Definitely this travel was my best journey during my life. A spiritual trip with many hardships but full of love for Imam Hussein (AS). About 20 millions pilgrims, 15 millions from within Iraq and 5 millions from outside, marked this Shia religious ritual. Almost all pilgrims fed up for free by thousands of volunteers in places called Mookeb... Unfortunately, news agencies were absent in this great procession, but in fact every pilgrim was a medium and InshaAllah very soon the whole world will hear the sound of Labbaik Ya Hussein!

The following photos are taken during my 6 days visit of Iraq and walking in the road of Ya Hussein between Najaf and Karbala: (Click on images for larger images. If you want better resolutions, contact me through comments. For more images see Photos of Arbaeen 2014)

شکر خدا، برای اولین بار زیارت کربلا نصیبم شد، آن هم در شرایطی که به خواب هم نمی دیدم. زیارت اربعین با پای پیاده در کنار میلیونها زائر دیگر. فضای ایام اربعین و طول مسیر پیاده روی چیزی نیست که بتوان به زبان آورد، باید رفت و دید. شاید تصاویر زیر کمی از حال و هوای بزرگترین اجتماع بشری را منتقل کند. اجتماعی که در سکوت ناجوانمردانه‌ی رسانه های خارجی برگزار شد، طوری که در کل مسیر تنها دو سه مورد خبرگزاریهای ایرانی و احتمالا لبنانی بودند که به انعکاس این رویداد بزرگ می پرداختند.

The largest peaceful gathering is underway - Arbaeen 2014 by: Shia Muslim

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 Arbaeen 2014 Arbaeen 2014

Arbaeen 2014بزرگترین 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!

Arbaeen - Million March Towards Hussein by: Shia Muslim
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), Hazrat 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 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 40th day after the martyrdom of the third Shia Imam.
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.

On Arbaeen 2013 about 18 Millions pilgrims walked from Najaf to Karbala. Nowadays Iraqi People are preparing for Arbaeen 2014 on December 13.
