An extended congregational prayer, a message of peace and faith:
Al Arbaeen march, a march which merged in it a lot of components, which painted a wonderful unique picture, from the generosity and humility of servants, to the patients and determination of the visitors, and from the financial self sufficient to the ascension to the perfection by truthfulness steps and motivated by loyalty:
One of the remarkable appearances of this march that those marching dissolve in the love of one man, joining them from different nationalities, affiliations, ages and their social class.
And one of the most important subjects of the Hawzawy Guidance in their march is to perform the daily congregational prayer is the places where the honourable informers exist, to stand in one row to face the Almighty God.
Until the 17th day of Goodness Safar, they came together in harmony in an extended congregational prayer which is the greatest one from the number and quality and all along the way of the pilgrimage, and for 5 years in progression, the congregational prayer is performed at the same time where tens of thousands of worshippers arrowed behind the congregational Imams who increased to more than 750 Imams for this year, and through a distance extended approximately 40 km on the path of (Ya Hussain) between Najaf and Karbala’, to embody the situation of Imam Al Hussain (peace be upon him) on the day of Ashora’, the day on which he didn’t care about the swords and spears to face the entity to the Almighty God.
This unified prayer this year started from pillar 96 where the procession of the sacred Alawy shrine is situated and continued for a long distance to pillar 950.
In addition to a congregational prayer for women that was performed at pillar 208 in the two sacred shrines procession so that his eminence Al Sayed Ahmed Al Ashkoori (general supervisor for Hawazawy guidance) can lead the congregational prayers for men and women that continued to pillar 228.
And many media sites covered this global event to report a clear and transparent image to the world so that everyone can see that we are monotheistic and we don’t bow to anyone but God.
And the path of Al Hussain (peace be upon him) is the path of pure monotheism.
And the Shia don’t deviate from the path of truth not even by a hair.
And even if the visitors were exhausted and however they rush to reach their purpose in Karbala’ but that doesn’t prevent them from doing what the Almighty God obliged upon them and on the highest level of obedience and submission.
And this prayer represents a message for the whole world that the followers of the prophet’s family (peace be upon them) were and are carrying the message of peace for everyone and they put before their eyes the saying of their Imam: “Either a brother for you in religion or parallel in creation”
