In order to show respect to the rituals of Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) and in commemoration of the martyrdom anniversary of the Prophet's daughter; the immaculate venerable lady Fatima az-Zahra (peace be upon her), the Department of Hussayni rituals and processions has launched the season of the Fatimi sorrows under the patronage of the two general secretariats of the two holy shrines of Imam al-Hussayn and of al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them).
The head of the department of the Hussayni rituals and processions of the two holy shrines; Mr. Riyadh Ni'mah al-Salman, spoke in an interview singled out by the al-Kafeel Network, saying: "For the tenth year in a row, the Department of Hussayni rituals and processions of the two General Secretariats of the two holy shrines of Imam al-Hussayn and of al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them) holds the season of the Fatimi sorrows in the area between the two holy shrines on the occasion of the martyrdom anniversary of Lady Fatima az-Zahra (Peace be upon her), which will last for ten days. "
Adding: "Since ten years, the two general secretariats are used to hold during ten days the Fatimi sorrows season or the small Muharram, including a multi-event festival, with activities including a panorama (image and sound) to tell the story of the oppression of our Lady az-Zahra (prayers of Allah be upon her), consisting of six passages representing her holy life;
The first is about her infallibility and the Hadith of Kisa' Yamani.
The second about the hadith al-Mubahala of the Holy Prophet (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household) with the Christians of Najran.
The third is about the house of az-Zahra (peace be upon her), the house of revelation and the message.
The fourth is devoted to the sermon of az-Zahra (peace be upon her) in the Mosque of the Messenger of Allah (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household).
The fifth is about the incident of attacking the house of Fatima and breaking her rib (peace be upon her).
And the last section represents the martyrdom of Lady Az-Zahra (peace be upon her) and the pain and grief that has taken place.
We made all these facts in the audio and image in the area between the two holy shrines. The festival included the free painting studio for children under the age of ten, as each child draws his imagination about the burning of the house and the calamities she faced, and there are encouragement prizes and gifts to the participants."
Indicating: "There are Hussayniyat and bodies to participate in this festival and also libraries in Karbala to provide books on this occasion. And there is a Council of poets and Hussayni Radoods. And on the night of death, there is the Fatimi procession that will launch from the shrine of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him) towards the shrine of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him)."
It is worth noting that in the past, and before the ban of the rituals by the former regime, the Fatimi days lasted for three days; the first day: The rituals were held in Kadhemiyah on the 13th of Jumada Ula. The next day; 14th of Jumada, the rituals were held in Karbala. The third day; the 15th of Jumada Ula, the rituals were held in Najaf at the holy shrine of the Commander of the Faithful (peace be upon him). And after the fall of the former regime, the Fatimi sorrows' season is held for ten days and it develops for the better.
