The visitors from the south, who are walking to perform the Ziyarat Arba'een of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), find many services provided to them from food, drinks, accommodation, health service and others, in addition to other services that nourish the visitor spiritually and contribute to strengthening his relationship with the Almighty God, such as the Quranic stations that is a project established annually by the Supreme Quranic Council at the holy shrines and sanctuaries in cooperation with the Union of Quranic Associations and Gatherings in Iraq.
The goal of these stations is to:
1- Teaching the correct recitation of the Quranic verses, especially those we use often in the obligatory prayers.
2- Answering Quranic questions and inquiries.
3- Establishing Quranic Khatma according to each region where the station is located.
4- Distributing educational brochures about the Ziyarat and Quranic matters.
The al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine through the Institute of the Holy Quran has an active participation in this project through its contribution to the preparation of these stations and deploying readers, men and women.
The project executive director, mohamad Khalil al-Mansouri, said: "Taking advantage of the millions of visitors walking towards Karbala to perform the Ziyarat Arba'een of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), the Quranic cadres have started the Quranic project from the area of Ras al-Bisha in al-Fao district south-east al-Basra province, along the road to the holy city of Karbala, on all the roads frequented by the visitors."
It is to note that the Quranic stations Project in the Ziyarat Arba'een is held by the Supreme Quranic Council for the third year in a row under the supervision of the holy shrines and sanctuaries, and in cooperation with the Union of Quranic Associations in Iraq, and that the Quranic stations provide its service to both men and women. Noting that the number of these stations to teach the Holy Quran has reached 300 stations last year.
