For the third day in a row, mourning processions from inside and outside the Karbala governorate are still flocking to the two holy shrines of Imam al-Hussayn and his brother Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon them both), to commemorate and extend condolences on the martyrdom of Lady az-Zahra (peace be upon her) according to the third narration, and according to a plan and schedule established by the Department of Hussayni Rituals and Processions in the Imam al-Hussayn and al-Abbas Holy Shrines.
The head of the aforementioned department, Haj Riyad Ni'mah Al-Salman, stated to Al-Kafeel Network: “The mourning processions that were dispatched to mark this occasion were of two types, the first are from within the governorate and affiliated to a number of parties and Karbala'i bodies that have been commemorating this sad occasion since the date corresponding to second narration. And the second are the mourning processions from outside the governorate, which participation starts one day before her martyrdom anniversary (peace be upon her) and ends on the martyrdom anniversary day. "
He indicated: “The participation of these processions and their performance of this activity is a mourning custom, as the Fatimi season of sorrows is the small season of Muharram, so you see them preparing the mourning parade before the martyrdom anniversary. The starting point of these processions is from the streets leading to the shrine of Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him), to enter his holy shrine, then continue the march to the shrine of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), passing through the square between the Two Holy Shrines, in the midst of organizational procedures by the staff of the department, which developed a plan that is compatible with the current situation, and works to organize these processions in a manner that does not intersect with the movement of the visitors. "
It is worth mentioning that there is no specific date for her martyrdom anniversary (peace be upon her), so the faithful commemorate it every year in various dates (taking into account the various narrations about it), and these days are called "The Fatimi sorrows season".
