A women condolence march to commemorate the martyrdom of saint Ruqayyah, the orphan of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him).

The Hussayni Women Speech Division at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine organized a condolence march to commemorate the martyrdom anniversary of the beloved daughter of Imam al-Hussayn; Saint Ruqayyah (peace be upon both of them). This march is held annually to recall the tragedy of the captivity of the holy household of the Holy Prophet (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household) on such days in the year (61 AH) in the dungeon of the Levant.

The mourning procession was attended by groups of children and their families, in addition to a number of female visitors and staffs of the female divisions at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine. Starting from the shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), and after extending the condolences to him, the march continued towards the shrine of her father Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), passing through the square between the two holy shrines, chanting expressions of sadness and sorrow.

After extending the condolences in the courtyard of the shrine of the Master Aba Abdillah al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), a condolence Majlis was held in the basement of al-Hujjah (may God hasten his holy reappearance) inside the Holy Courtyard, which began with the recitation of verses from the Holy Qur’an, and then a lecture delivered by one of the Division’s orators, in which she spoke about the greatness of this calamity that ended the life of Saint Ruqayyah, upon seeing her father’s holy head when she was a three-year-old girl, after she saw with her own eyes the great calamity and the great tragedy of Ashura, and what happened to her father, Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) and his family and his companions, and she was taken (peace be upon her) captive among the captives of the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) along with the heads of the martyrs to Kufa, then from there to the Levant.

This was followed by a representative scene in which the events of her death were narrated to bring to mind what happened to this oppressed little girl amidst the tears and sadness of the mourners. The Majlis was concluded by reciting the supplication for the hastening of the relief of our Imam; the Master of the Time and Order (may God hasten his holy reappearance).
