The Karbala mourning processions on the seventh of the month of Muharram recalled the positions of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him) and his great sacrifices on Ashura.
The roads leading to the shrines of Imam al-Hussayn and his brother Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon them) and the entrances of the Old City witnessed the flock of many Zinjeel condolence processions of the people of Karbala, coming to the holy shrines to commemorate the tragedy of at-Taf, in an annual tradition of the Hussayni mourning processions.
The hussayni mourning processions recalled in their elegies and poems the positions of the Master Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), his sacrifices and his support of his brother the master of martyrs Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) in Ashura and his martyrdom.
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.
