Great sadness will be added to the sadness of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine during the past few days, as the believers are commemorating the martyrdom anniversary of the Holy Prophet (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household), so the sadness is renewed at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine and the black banners are hung to express the sadness on the lost of the Master of humans and messengers (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household).
As is customary on this sad occasion, the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine prepared a special condolences program that included:
- 1- Receiving condolences procession that will launch from the Old City and the rest of the neighborhoods of Karbala, to extend condolences to the awaited Imam al-Mahdi (may Allah hasten his holy reappearance), on the occasion of the martyrdom anniversary of his great grandfather (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household).
- 2- Establishing a number of religious lectures.
- 3- Other mourning activities.
It is worth mentioning that the martyrdom of the Seal of Prophets and Messengers; Mohammad son of Abdullah (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household) was on the 28th of Safar in the year 11 of the Hijra, he was then 63 years old. The lovers and followers are heading on this occasion to the shrine of the Dragonfly of Religion, the victorious lion of God; Ali Ibn Abi Taleb (peace be upon him and his father) to extend their condolences to him for the martyrdom of his beloved brother and cousin; the Messenger of Mercy Mohammad (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household), and this is one of the specific Ziyarat of the Commander of the Faithful (peace be upon him).
