The holy shrines of Imam Al-Hussayn and Al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them) have mobilized all their service and security efforts for receiving the visitors coming for the Ziyarat of Imam Al-Hussayn and his brother Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them) on 'Arafah day, and who began arriving since two days, and their numbers have reached the peak on the afternoon of Sunday the 9th of Dhu Al-Hijjah ('Arafah day). The provided services were not confined to the visitors inside the two holy shrines but have also included wider ranges according to the plan put in place previously.
It is to note that the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine has announced previously the completion of its preparations to receive the visitors of Imam Al-Hussayn and his brother Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them) on 'Arafah and Eid days. As the security and service preparations have started early in order to enable the visitors to perform their Ziyarat and their worship acts easily and conveniently.
And it is to mention that on the 'Arafat Day, the Almighty Allah looks at the visitors of Imam Al-Hussayn’s tomb with mercy before He looks at those gathering on 'Arafat Mountain. And according to another validly reported tradition, Rafa'ah reported that Imam As-Sadeq (peace be upon him) once asked him, “Did you go on Hajj this year?” Rafa'ah answered, “May Allah accept me as ransom for you! I did not have enough resources to go to Hajj. Rather, I could present myself at the tomb of Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him).” The Imam (peace be upon him) commented, “Rafa'ah, you have thus not failed to gain what those who presented themselves at Mina have gained! Were it not for that I do not want people to desert going on Hajj, I would pass on to you a discourse that if you hear it, you will never leave visiting the tomb of Al-Hussayn, Allah’s blessings be upon you.” The Imam (peace be upon him) then paused for a while and then continued, “My father has told me that whoever travels to the tomb of Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) recognizing his actual right and showing no pride, will be accompanied by one thousand angels on his right side and one thousand angels on his left. The reward is of one thousand times of Hajj and one thousand times of `umrah with a prophet or a prophet’s successor will also be recorded for him.”
