Sayed Hadi al-Balushi is one of the most prominent Karbala figures who have Hussayni service history. His father and him were sponsors of one of the historical procession; condolence procession of Balush, which was founded in 1316 AH/ 1898 AD in south of the holy city of Karbala and it was named " `agd al-Balush".
Before the establishment of this procession, its officials used to perform rituals in the houses and alleys, and after a while, the procession was taking part with other historical procession in the holy city of Karbala to commemorate the first ten days of the holy month of Muharram.
The condolence procession of al-Balush establishes the play of burning of the tents to recall the burning of tents of al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), by erecting some small and big tents, one of which is burnt to remind of the end of the battle.
Therefore, Sayed Hashem was born and raised in this environment, which revolves around the Hussayni love. Their procession is not limited to the revival of the rituals in the months of Muharram and Safar, but Sayed Hashem also celebrate the birth anniversary of Lady Fatima az-Zahra (peace be upon her) by holding a large celebration on the twentieth of Jumada II. This celebration is held every year since more than 85 years, and Sayed Hashem started supervising it since 1970, and also the commemoration of the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Zayn al-'Abideen (peace be upon him) since 1960, in addition to other activities and honorable positions that did not stop even during the time of oppressing Baath regime.

And he has expressed his thanks and gratitude for the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine and its officials for this nice initiative.
At the end of the visit, the delegation presented to Sayed Hadi al-Balushi some blessing gifts from the shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him) as an expression of their appreciation for this personality who served the Hussayni matter, wishing him a good health and wellness.
