The holy city of Karbala witnessed, on Tuesday, the thirteenth of Muharram, the start of the mourning processions of Iraqi tribes, to commemorate the burial of the holy bodies of the Master of martyrs and his family and companions (peace be upon them).
The people of Karbala used to remember this occasion and revive it as an inherited ritual custom, with the departure of the tribes of the province and its clans, in addition to tribal delegations representing some tribes that come from other provinces, led by the Bani Asad tribe, which was honored in (61 AH) to help of Imam as-Sajjad (peace be upon him), in burying the bodies of the martyrs of the at-Taf tragedy.
The processions of the clans were organized in the form of groups and processions, and they set off as usual from near the shrine of Sayed Jawda in Karbala, heading to the Qibla street of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) to go to his holy shrine, and from there through the square between the Two Holy Shrines to the shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), to conclude the mourning procession in his Holy Courtyard.
The mourning also witnessed the participation of a large number of women who came out in huge processions to extend their condolences to Lady Zaynab (peace be upon her) on this sad tragedy.
The Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine has harnessed all its efforts to provide the best services for mourning processions.
