The Hussayni Women Speech Division at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine organized its annual condolence council to commemorate the martyrdom of Lady az-Zahra (peace be upon her), in the presence of a group of visitors of the shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), and the council lasted for two days.
The division’s official, Ms. Taghreed al-Tamimi, told Al-Kafeel Network, “The council is held annually in the basement of Imam al-Kadhem (peace be upon him), and included several mourning activities that began with reciting verses from the Holy Quran, followed by a lecture delivered by one of our division’s employees, and on the first day focused on the status of women in society, as God Almighty placed her in a high and supreme rank, and the issue of complementarity between men and women and that there is no difference between them in rights and duties, such as enjoining good and forbidding evil and spreading Islamic teachings, and even standing in the face of injustice and speaking and defending the word of truth, and the highest example to follow is the immaculate lady Fatima az-Zahra (peace be upon her)."
She added, "The second day's lecture, in which the preacher spoke about the necessity for Muslims in all their dealings and worship to follow the Greatest Messenger (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household), as evidenced by the noble verses, hadiths and narrations. Explaining the position of lady az-Zahra (peace be upon her) and the sanctity of her holy house. And both lectures will be concluded by mentioning the calamity of her martyrdom (may God’s peace be upon her).”
Al-Tamimi explained, "Among the mourning activities held within the council was the presentation of representative scenes embodying the oppression of lady az-Zahra (peace be upon her), and these scenes provoked the interaction of the attendees, and this is what made us persevere in presenting them every year."
