Arba'een (Arabic: الأربعین‎, "forty"), Chehelom (Persian: چهلم‎‎, the fortieth [day]") is a Shia Muslim religious observance that occurs forty days after the Day of Ashura. It commemorates the martyrdom of Hussain ibn Ali, the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUT), which falls on the 20th day of the month of Safar. Imam Hussain ibn Ali and 72 companions were martyred by tyrant Yazid I's army in the Battle of Karbala in 61 AH (680 CE). Arbaeen is one of the largest pilgrimage gatherings on Earth, in which up to 30 million people go to the city of Karbala in Iraq.

Arbaeen is the world's largest annual gathering, with the number of pilgrims far exceeding the two million visitors who descend on Mecca for the Hajj. The Kumbh Mela, a mass Hindu pilgrimage, attracts more pilgrims but is held only every three years.

There are millions people.

Proud to say I am a part of this enormous crowd.

He's not the one .

He's not only the Imam.

He is the way and the life.

living for the truth.That's what I like.

I myself try to follow him.

It means that I try to find the truth and justice. And it's the best.

It's make me happy.

you can find out  many new things about yourself and Imam Husayn when you are walking.

It's difficult but if you are alone and you don't speak with others , you can speak with yourself,walk and clear your mind.

It' spiritual journey .Demonstrating the love.

When there is love ,it doesn't matter how hard problem is.

Pretty soon many people who love Husayn will get together in the holy city of Karbala on Arbaeen.

 ashuraaa.wordpress.com writes :
In the last year, I was only a virtual visitor of Arbaeen epic, sitting behind my laptop and insert some photos of Imam Hussain’s pilgrims into my blog and so on, but this year I’m going to be among  millions of pilgrims on the way to Karbala despite what I heard about the ISIL terrorist group.


Actually when I searched about ISIL and found that these fake Muslims cut men’s heads and sale their women as sex slaves, I decided not to travel to Karbala for Arbaeen as a girl but I thought: if you wish you would be on the day of Ashura in karbala helping the prophet Muhammad’s grandson, this time is the exact time to help. Arbaeen is the time we can introduce Hussain to the world by gathering more and more in Karbala and thus we can help the reappearance of Imam Mahdi by that as Imam Mahdi will introduce himself to the world by Imam Hussain (PBUH).

Moreover, when you really loved someone, it does not matter you were in dangers. Walking on Arbaeen toward the holy shrine of Imam Hussain is a way to show our love to Imam Hussain and his descendant, Imam Mahdi. Arbaeen is also a way to memorize how much difficulties Zainab and Hussain’s children tolerate as they were captive toward Karbala, So I tried to overcome my fear and “rely on God, he suffices as trustee” [33:3]

Imam Hasan Al-Askari (PBUH) who is from the descendant of Imam Hussain and the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has said:

“The signs of a believer are five:

1.Performing 51 units of prayer [1] [of which 17 units are the obligatory prayers and 34 units are the recommended prayers per day]
2. Pilgrimage of Imam Hussain (PBUH) on Arbaeen [the 40th day following Ashura],
3. Wearing a ring on the right hand,
4. Placing the forehead on the earth [during Sajdah in the prayer];
5. Saying “Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim” [which means “In the name of God, the compassionate, the merciful”] aloud during the prayer “[2]

__________

[1]  Each prayer or Salat in Islam consists of  individual units called Rakat. Each Rakat is very similar to each other except some minor details.
