Mehr News Agency - Arbaeen pilgrims mourn in Imam Hussein (AS) shrine

TEHRAN, Sep. 05 (MNA) – As the day of Arbaeen approaches, massive crowds of people have reached the shrine of Imam Hussein (AS) in Iraq's Karbala to commemorate the memory of Imam and his companions.

Arbaeen is a Shia religious observance that occurs forty days after the Day of Ashura. It commemorates the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (AS), the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), who was martyred on the 10th day of the month of Muharram.
