More than 6000 marriage contract were held at the al-Abbas's (p Holy Shrine during the year 2018.

The Department of Religious Affairs at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine announced that the number of marriage contracts carried out at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, through its Contracts and Marriage Division, reached (6541) contracts inside and outside the holy province of Karbala during 2018 and for only ten months, as no marriage is contracted during the months of Muharram and Safar.

Many families are accustomed to this tradition to contract the marriages of their youth in the holy shrine of the Master Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), seeking his blessings.

The Contracts and Marriage Division of the Department of Religious Affairs at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine said: "The mechanism of marriage contracts that take place in the Holy Shrine of Aba al-Fadl (peace be upon him) is conducted through the introduction of both spouses' data and the statements of their parents at first, followed by reading in Arabic the marriage contract aloud by the one of the Sayeds or Sheikhs of the Department , then the couple is given a copy of the marriage contract while another copy is kept at the division, as the marriage contract held at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine is accepted in Iraqi courts according to the Iraqi Personal Status Law.

The number of marriages in 2018 have increased to be the double of those contracted in 2017, because the Iraqis have received the good tidings of the liberation, which was achieved by the heroes of the sacred fatwa, in addition to their feeling of calm and stability of the security situation in Iraq.”
