Arafa Day is one of the days Almighty Allah granted a great rank. Many narrations told about the greatness of Arafat Day, and recommended us to offer certain rituals, considering it as a positive start point for each faithful. One of the best deeds preferred to offer is offer pilgrimage to Imam Hussein (PBUH).
The Imam Hussein and the El-Abbas Holy Shrines have received so many pilgrims, where thousands of other pilgrims still arriving.
As the Sacred House witnesses reiterations about pilgrimage, the Imam Hussein and the El-Abbas Holy Shrines witness the same rituals offered by those who had no chance to go for pilgrimage.
Both of the Holy Shrines spared no efforts in order to host and serve as many pilgrims as possible. The head of the Nejaf airport Murtada El-Musawi, mentioned that there were many pilgrims arriving at the airport preparing to attend the Holy Shrines of Imam Hussein and his brother El-Abbas (Peace be upon them).
He added that forty five thousands of foreign pilgrims had arrived the five days before.
Also, it is narrated that offering pilgrimage to Imam Hussein and El-Abbas (Peace be upon them) on Arafat Day equals a thousand of performing pilgrimage with the Awaited Imam El-Mehdi (May Allah hasten his reappearance). Moreover, there are certain rituals to offer such as Imam Hussein’s supplication known as Imam Hussein’s supplication of Arafat Day.
