The Council [Majlis] is held with the wide attendance of the servants of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him) in addition to the visitors."
He continued: "The agreement with the religious affairs department at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine, was reached to prepare preachers to give religious lectures in the form of a jurisprudential and doctrinal series highlighting the revolution of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) and its contribution to the Islamic nation and to the whole world, and how he (peace be upon him) became a beacon lighting the path of the free ones as he is the peace to all mankind."
