Husayni condolences processions continue to flock to the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine on the morning of the second day of the holy month of Muharram.
The Zinjeel mourning processions were launched on the morning of the second day of the holy month of Muharram, to commemorate the martyrdom anniversary of Imam al-Hussayn and his brother Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon them), and to recall those decisive moments witnessed in the city of Karbala at that time.
The holy shrines of Imam al-Hussayn and al-Abbas (peace be upon them) witnessed large crowds of believers who flocked from various regions and countries to participate in the commemoration of that sad occasion, and the voices of mourners rose with Hussayni elegies, which embody the meanings of consolation and loyalty to the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) and their lofty teachings.
The mourning processions in the first ten days of the month of Muharram concern the people of Karbala, which is a mourning custom they have been keen to establish since ancient times and begins with the descent of the Zinjeel mourning processions, in memory of the cause of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), and the renewal of the Covenant and loyalty to him (peace be upon him).
The movement of the Processions is carried out according to an organized plan, developed by the Department of Hussayni Rituals, Processions and Bodies at the holy shrine of Imam al-Hussayn and al-Abbas's (peace be upon them), as its march is through specific streets leading to the Qibla gate of the shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (Peace be upon him) passing through its Holy Courtyard, and then out from the gate of Imam al-Hassan (peace be upon him) to conclude at the shrine of the Lord of martyrs; Imam Aba Abdillah al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), through the square between the Two Holy Shrines.
The department allocates teams to accompany the March of each procession from the moment it starts to its conclusion, to avoid overcrowding, following special routes to ensure that there is no intersection between one procession and another or with visitors.
