Abu Basir relates, “I heard from Imam Mohammad Al-Baqer (peace be upon him), ‘One who wishes to reside in Paradise, must never forsake the Ziyarat of the oppressed one.’ I enquired, ‘Who is the oppressed one?’
Imam (peace be upon him) replied: Imam Al-Hussayn Ibn Ali (peace be upon both of them), the oppressed and martyr of Karbala. One who visits his shrine with eagerness and out of affection for the Holy Prophet (Allah's prayers be upon him and his holy Household), The Commander of the Faithful (peace be upon him) and Fatima (peace be upon her), will be seated by Allah on the tablecloth of Paradise, he will dine with them (Ahl Al-Bayt (peace be upon them)), while the others will be absorbed in the accounting of deeds.’
The city of Karbala received tens of thousands of visitors coming from inside and outside Iraq despite the low temperatures and others conditions that may hinder their blessed journey towards this pure land.
And before the 'Isha prayers, palms were raised, eyes were filled with tears and broken sighs were taken in the chest of the believers and visitors who were praying for Iraq and its security forces and the volunteers of the popular mobilization, as they are facing bravely the Kharijites of this era of the terrorists and criminals of ISIL and those who support them. Asking the Almighty God by the intercession of Imam Al-Hussayn and his brother Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them) to bless the volunteers of the popular mobilization and the heroes of the security forces with victory over their enemies.
