2nd national Arbaeen conference will be held in Imam Sadiq (AS) University on 17thOctober 2016. Many distinguished guests including Professor Morco from Germany and Pakistani Scholar Syed Zaheer Uddin Naqvi will participate in this conference.
It is worth mentioning that on the occasion of Arbaeen Iraqi Shia Muslims have made great examples of sacrifice which we cannot find in this world.
All Iraqi Shia Muslims are ready to serve the pilgrims of shrine of Imam Hussain (AS) on Arbaeen.
According to the intellectuals great sacrifice of Iraqi Shia Muslims on Arbaeen is the great example of Islamic civilization.
To highlight such examples of Islamic civilization, such kind of conferences are arranged in Iran during which different angels are discussed.
Arba'een is consistently among the largest peaceful gatherings in history. The city of Karbala in Iraq is the center of the proceedings which many pilgrims travel miles on foot to reach. The distance between Basra and Karbala is a long journey even by car, but it is traveled annually on foot by Iraqi pilgrims, which takes them two weeks, or approximately one month to come from other countries like Iran. The crowds become so massive that they cause a blockade for hundreds of miles. In 2008, approximately nine million religious observers converged on Karbala to commemorate Arba’een. However, in 2009, the number of people visiting Karbala on Arba'een significantly increased. In 2013, Arbaeen reached 20 million people from 40 countries.
