Arbaeen is a historical movement and phenomenon for the realization of the Reappearance of Imam Mahdi (a.s.). Living and adapting to Arbaeen culture requires thinking, living and dying with Ashura culture.

Hawzah News Agency- On Saturday, September 17, 2022, during the Arbaeen pilgrimage ceremony held at Mirza Kuchak Khan Hosseiniya of Nur Al-Zahra (a.s.) Mowkab of Gilan province in Karbala, while pointing to the fervent attendance of people in the Arbaeen Walk, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani stated, “If anything is done with divine intention, it will last.”

Stating that research should be done on Arbaeen culture, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly stated, “This year, due to the fervent participation of people, we saw a high density of people on Arbaeen day. If it is planned that this walk will start after the day of Ashura and end by the day of Arbaeen, and the pilgrims will not stay too long in Karbala, most of the problems will be solved.”

“Iranian and Iraqi officials should provide travel and accommodation facilities for pilgrims during forty days after Ashura,” he added, “It is necessary for everyone to strive for holding the gathering of Arbaeen as a great spiritual, political, social and cultural ritual.”

“There is no equivalent in the world for Arbaeen of Imam Hussain (a.s.). However, we are witnessing a news boycott on the Arbaeen by the Zionist media outlets. If 15 people gather in Germany, England, or other western countries, the news of such a gathering will be broadcast all over the world. But there is no news or report about this 20 million walk in the international media,” Ayatollah Ramazani pointed out.

“Arbaeen spiritual gathering has been unprecedented in the human history. The largest gathering of Muslims was the presence of two to three million pilgrims in Hajj. But the participation of tens of millions in Arbaeen is a great event,” expressed the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“The presence of pilgrims from several different nationalities in Arbaeen has a great message and story for the world,” he stated.

“Arbaeen pilgrimage of Imam Hussain (a.s.) should be properly narrated,” Ayatollah Ramazani stated, “By narrating Ashura event in Yazid’s Palace in a detailed, deep and comprehensive manner, Lady Zainab (a.s.) and Imam Sajjad (a.s.) caused a great revolution in a short period of time.”

“Great historical events should be properly narrated, and their distortion should be prevented. Holy Defense (8-year imposed war of Iraq against Iran) was a great event that the enemies imposed on us. But the important thing is that we can narrate it correctly,” stressed the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“During Arbaeen of Imam Hussain (a.s.), a huge mass of devotees, especially from the young generation, express their devotion to that Imam. Sometimes, in the excitement of Arbaeen, guidance is not performed correctly. In this regard, those in charge of guidance affairs must fulfill their duty,” he stated.

Emphasizing the importance of understanding the place of the Arbaeen ceremony, Ayatollah Ramazani noted, “It should not be said that everyone can mourn in any way they want. Superstitions must be confronted. Some false devices or poems should not be institutionalized in the mourning gatherings of Imam Hussain (a.s.).”

“The commander of the Resistance, Haj Qassem Soleimani, was the founder of the great Arbaeen movement of Imam Hussein (a.s.) in the present era. While adhering the principles, we must work on the Arbaeen content and lead it,” he clarified.

Further, appreciating the hospitality of the Iraqi nation and the assistance of the officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Iraq, Ayatollah Ramazani stated, “The preparations for the Arbaeen Walk should be made in such a way that the pilgrims are received properly.”

“Arbaeen is a historical movement and phenomenon for the realization of the Reappearance of Imam Mahdi (a.s.). Living and adapting to Arbaeen culture requires thinking, living and dying with Ashura culture,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“The system of Imam Hussain (a.s.) is based on promoting the divine system,” he stated, “We must fully accept and abide Imam Hussain’s (a.s.) guardianship.”

“Ziyarat Ashura is an analysis of Ashura Event, and we need to pay attention to the depth of its concepts and ranks,” he mentioned, “In order to reach the ranks mentioned in the Ziyarat Ashura, we should reconsider our behavior and beliefs, and even in our daily life and at home, we should try to get closer to Imam Hussain (a.s.).”

“By meditating in the field of ethics and action, we can be considered among those who await (for Imam Mahdi(a.s.)). The concepts of Ashura and Arbaeen have extensive and close relationship with the concept of Reappearance,” Ayatollah Ramazani said.

“If someone wants to know whether he is one of those Await for Imam Mahdi (a.s.), he should measure the level of love, knowledge and obedience to Imam Hussain (a.s.),” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.

“Knowledge, love, obedience, similarity and companionship are necessary to reach the Velayat. Those who are patient and resist in the face of adversities and hardships, get the culture of Arbaeen. Getting the culture of Arbaeen means experiencing life with tolerance,” he said in the end.
