The holy city of Najaf is packed with the large crowds who came to the holy city to perform the special Zyarat of the martyrdom's anniversary of the Holy Prophet (prayers and Allah's peace be upon him and his holy Household), they entered to the holy city of Najaf across the land ports and the airport, from the different Iraqi provinces as well as the countless numbers of foreign visitors who did not leave Iraq since the entered it for the Zyarat of Arba'een last week.
The believing crowds have invoked while presenting their condolences to his brother the Commander of the Faithful (peace be upon him) his remarkable positions in the face of infidelity and atheism with his heavenly mission for the whole humanity. The holy city of Najaf experienced intensive preparations for the reception of the visitors of Imam Ali (peace be upon him), as the governmental and civil departments and institutions have mobilised all their potential in order to provide all services to the visitors, and the Najaf headquarters of police launched the implementation of their security plan of this Zyarat.
The condolences Hussayni processions were erected all the way long to the holy city of Najaf, to serve the visitors of the Commander of the Faithful (peace be upon him), noting that most of them were offering their services to the visitors since the Zyarat Arba'een of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) in the holy city of Karbala.
The rituals of the Zyarat this year differed in terms of attendance from the past years for several reasons, the most important is the establishment of the security due to the efficiency of the Iraqi security forces in the protection of the citizens and because of their control imposed on the roads and external and internal tracts, as well as the facilities provided by the government to let the visitors coming from abroad to enter the country without a need of visa, in order to let them perform the rituals of the Zyarat in the best of circumstances.
It is to mention that Anas Ibnu Malik has said: "When we have finished the burial of the Holy Prophet (prayers and Allah's peace be upon him and his holy Household), Fatima (peace be upon her) came to me and said: "How could you put the soil on the face of the Messenger of Allah. Then she began crying, and she spoke heart - rendering words that burn our inner soul just like burning embers: “Father dear, after you, I feel lonely. I have remained perplexed and deprived, my mouth is inclined to silence, and my back is broken, and the wholesome water of life has become bitter to my taste.”
And, She put a bit of the soil of her father's grave on her eyes and said: “The person who smells the pure soil of the grave of Prophet (S), it is only fair that until the end of his life he should smell no other perfume. After you, O’ father, so much suffering has fallen upon me that, if they were to fall upon bright Jays, they would turn into dark, gloomy nights.”
Um Salamah one of the Prophet's wives (peace be upon her) said: “When I went to see the Lady of Islam Fatima (peace be upon her) after the death of the prophet, and asked her how she was, in reply these meaningful sentences were spoken by her:"Why are you asking me how I am Um Salamah, when I am caught in the middle of much sadness and suffering? On the one hand I have lost my father, the Prophet (S) and on the other hand (I see with my own eyes that) there has been injustice done to his successor, (Ali ibnu Abi Talib). I swear to God that they have torn the curtain of his inviolability (reverence). But I know that these are the grudges of Badr and the revenges of Uhud, that were hidden in the hearts of the hypocrites (non-believers).”
