For the second year in row, the Hussayni processions in the province of Dhi Qar established a banquet with 80 kilometer length to provide food to the visitors of Arba'een Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) who are walking towards Karbala. More than 1000 Hussayni processions from the areas of 'akeyka, karmat bani Sa'eed, sooq Shuyookh, Al-Fadliyah and the center of Dhi Qar province have participated in the preparation of this banquet that was stretched from Karmat Bani Sa'eed south of Nasiriyah to the junction of Batha southwest of nasiriyah. This Hussayni banquet had the name of "Sufrat Sibtayn" and it is the longest banquet in the world and thus the service Hussayni procession have recorded today a new world record in the generosity.
Mr. Walid Muhammad al-Madhloum, the head of the Unit of hussayni rituals in the district of Sooq Al-Shuyoukh stated: "Al-Sibtayn Banquet was launched last year with a length of 15 kms and thanks to God and with the blessings of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), this year 65 kms were added to feed the visitors heading towards Karbala to commemorate the Arba'een of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him). Noting that the poor, orphans and the displaced persons were invited to this blessed banquet in addition to the children of the martyrs of security forces and the volunteers of the popular crowd, who have offered their pure blood for the perpetuation of these processions and the Arba'een. This banquet was filled with various types of foods, fruits, vegetables and meat for all the visitors.
The observers believe that this banquet had thus shattered all records registered in the global encyclopedias in term of its length and the quantity of food, after exceeding all spiritual and ideological figures in term of the generosity and the giving for humanitarian and religious issues and they have demanded the relevant authorities to register it worldwide.
