The first visitors of the Ziyarat Arba'een of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) started to arrive to the holy city of Karbala to perform the rituals of the Ziyarat. The marching visitors who are currently in their peak in the southern provinces, have come on foot amid a high level of security and service procedures taken by the local governments in those provinces, as well as the services provided by the processions deployed along the roads leading to Karbala.
A part of the visitors who arrived to perform the Ziyarat early, come every year at this time because they are associated to service and condolences processions in their provinces, so they come to the Ziyarat and then they go back. And it is interesting to note the large numbers of the visitors this year who came from the neighbouring countries to participate with the Iraqis in their march to perform the blessed Ziyarat, and their starting points were either from the south of Iraq or from the province of Najaf depending the road they have taken.
On the other hand, the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine is fully ready to receive the guests of Aba Abdillah Al-Hussayn and his brother Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them), after having prepared a security and service plans to receive them, starting by the external complexes down to the holy shrine, commensurate with the millions of visitors expected to arrive in the few coming days.
