Arbaeen march has introduced Imam Hossein to world: Ayatollah Khamenei
IRAN  - Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said Wednesday that Arbaeen trek has introduced Imam Hossein (PBUH) and the teachings of Ashura to the world.

The Leader made the remarks in a meeting with a number of benevolent Iraqi people who host pilgrims every year.

He expressed gratitude to the Iraqi hosts for providing millions of pilgrims with services and accommodation in their Mokebs (Arabic term for tent), saying the Iraqi nation and government, along with their great religious scholars, have provided the grounds for their brothers and sisters to attend this religious event.

Arbaeen, which is one of the largest religious gatherings in the world, comes 40 days after Ashura, the martyrdom anniversary of the third Shia Imam, Imam Hussein (PBUH). This year, Arbaeen falls on Saturday, October 19.

Each year, millions of Shias visit Karbala (many of who go on foot) to perform mourning rites.

During the pilgrimage and along the procession paths, thousands of Iraqi people serve the visiting pilgrims and provide them with accommodation, food and beverage and medical services.
