As part of the plan prepared for the commemoration of the sacred month of Mohammadian sorrows "Muharram", the Department of service affairs at the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine has prepared condolences banners in black and has deployed it in the entrances of the roads leading to the holy city of Karbala, some squares and bridges, in order to disseminate the grief and anguish to recall the calamity of the Master of Martyrs Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him).
More than 1000 m2 of black cloth were prepared for the first stage, and after taking the measurements according to the proposed places where to hang this cloth, it was cut into (12 x 3 m) and (22 x 3 m) and other measurements. The department has commissioned the calligrapher Abd Al-Majeed Al-Karbalai to write the chosen phrases on the cloth in line with its appropriate place, especially on the main roads of the city and the close streets to the two holy shrines of Imam Al-Hussayn and his brother Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them).
The calligrapher used the line of "Thuluth", and has took a long time, as it is the first time that these condolences banners are suspended in the city of Karbala in this way and this quantity. These banners will be hanged until the Ziyarat of Arba'een on the twentieth day of the month of Safar. And the works will continue for another stage, hoping to deploy these banners in most of the streets of the city of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him).
