Karbala started receiving the first crowds of millions of visitors walking towards the Qibla of the divine love; the holy shrine of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him), in indication of the magnitude and intensity of the visitors of Ziyarat Arba'een in the city of martyrdom and redemption.
Its entrances, especially the Najaf and Hilla axes, have witnessed an influx of visitors that began more than a week ago, but its features were more intense yesterday, as the visitors started flocking in form of groups, after being individual visitors since the first day of Safar. All of them have the same aspiration; being honored and blessed by performing the Ziyarat of Imam al-Hussayn and of his brother Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them).
The processions and marquees of the Hussayni service are spread inside and outside of the holy city on all its roads, both from the people of the city or from the rest of the Iraqi provinces, starting their preparations early to get the honor to serve the visitors of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him).
On the other hand, the holy shrines of Karbala harnessed all their means to provide the best comfort to the visitors, in addition to the service and security departments of the province, such as the police, army, health, water, municipalities, civil defence and others.
