There are some Iranian media publications that have circulated recently on some of the pages of social networking, stating that the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine has collected donations to feed the visitors of Arba'een, and to provide the services to them during the Ziyarat Arba'een, specifically in the procession of the two holy shrine on the road of Najaf!
In a statement issued by the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine, it has denied these false claims, which have nothing to do with reality, and are away from the approach of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine.
Explaining that all that is provided to visitors, either in the procession of the two holy shrines or in its service complex is free of charge, and that it has nothing to do with any body that collect donations for its services, and any talk about collecting donations is not true.
The al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine has warned the dear citizens and visitors not to believe any body that uses its name in such matters.
It has also called the citizens and the visitors to not deal with these bodies, and the need to inform the holy shrine for any case in this regard. It has also called for the media to be careful in the circulation of such topics, and to take them only from their sources and from the official channels of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine.
