The Women's Library Division, affiliated to the Intellectual and Cultural Affairs Department at the al-Abbas's (P) holy shrine, concluded an electronic festival (and through it I was guided), which was included in educational activities of the Ziyarat Arba'een, and it lasted for three days.
Professor Asmaa Al-Abadi explained to Al-Kafeel Network, saying: “At the end of the festival, a discussion session was organized under the title (Outcomes of the Blessed Ziyarat Arba'een), in the presence of the two honorable guests: Dr. Rajaa Bitar from Lebanon, and Dr. Fatima Azadi from the Islamic Republic of Iran. Discussions took place about the Ziyarat Arba'een, which presented a distinctive model for rooting and consolidating the Hussaini cause, due to its size, breadth and implications."
She added, "The festival was attended by a wide audience and interacted over the course of the three days, and it achieved wide repercussions, and this is what we have seen from the number of participants from all over the world, which indicates positively the influence and response of followers and their interaction through electronic platforms."
She explained: "This festival and other activities organized by the women's library achieve many goals and contribute to raising the level of thinking among followers, especially with regard to the intellectual and cultural aspect."
For her part, Dr. Rajaa Bitar explained: “Our seminar was about the outcomes of the Ziyarat Arba'een, and focused on reaping the fruits of this great Ziyarat, its historical and humanitarian roots, and its comprehensive impact on the human community in general and on the Muslim in particular. Through it we tried to shed light on what this blessed Ziyarat has produced for us, embodied in the person of the Master of the Martyrs, his brother Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas, his sister al-Hawra Zaynab (peace be upon them), his companions and his family (may God be pleased with them), who are the symbols of the blessed humane march of Arba'een.
Dr. Fatima Azadi added, saying: “The blessed Ziyarat Arba'een is an occasion that carries with it many concepts, contents and energies, deserves contemplation, focus and search for it, to inspire what guarantees the happiness of the Husseini visitor in this world and the hereafter, and in this year in which we live in difficult days under harsh pressures and conditions, of the Corona epidemic that prevented us from carrying out the greatest ritual and the largest gathering of lovers of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), which is the rite of walking on foot to visit him, but the call of love was answered this time by our pens, our thoughts and our souls, and the response was my participation this year in this festival.
