The Information Technology and Networks Division of the Media Department of the al-Abbas's Holy Shrine announced that the Ziyarat by proxy page on the al-Kafeel global network has received and performed the Ziyarat Arba'een on behalf of more than one hundred thousand visitors from various countries of the world, through its (Arabic - English - Persian - Turkish - Urdu - French - Swahili - German) websites.
Mr Haider Talib Abdul Amir, the head of the aforementioned division, said, "As a result of the exceptional circumstances that the world is experiencing in general and Iraq in particular, and as a result of the repercussions of the Corona epidemic and the inability of a large number of visitors to visit the shrines of Imam al-Hussayn and his brother Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon them both), this page witnessed an increase in the number of registrants from different countries of the world, and accordingly we have put in place a special plan to perform this Ziyarat rituals on their behalf."
He explained: "The brothers Sayed servants at the al-Abbas's holy shrine were honored to perform this Ziyarat, which was performed at the two holy shrines of Imam al-Hussayn and his brother Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon them both)."
Abdul Amir added, "There was a wide time to announce this Ziyarat, so that it could receive the largest possible number of registered visitors, most of whom were from the following countries: (Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Pakistan, Russia, USA, UK, India, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Canada, Kuwait, Malaysia, Australia, Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Germany, Iceland, Austria, Greece, Netherlands, Tunisia, Denmark, Norway, Qatar, Belgium, Morocco, Afghanistan, Oman, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, Switzerland, Nigeria, Ghana, Yemen, Indonesia, Italy, Spain, France, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Cyprus, Finland, China, Ireland, Hong Kong, Japan, the Emirates, and Sudan).
He concluded: “Preparations are currently underway to launch an expanded campaign to perform the Ziyarat by proxy of the Holy Prophet Mohammad (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household) on the 28th of Safar, through the same page on the Al-Kafeel Network. This year, it will take place in a different way for the exception of the current circumstance and the inability of large numbers of visitors to come to perform this Ziyarat."
