SHAFAQNA- Alkafeel: In order to declare the state of mourning on this sad occasion; the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Ali al-Hadi (peace be upon him), the walls of the al-Abbas’s (p) holy shrine were all covered in black. Also, black condolences’ banners were hung inside the holy sanctuary to extend the condolences to the Holy Prophet and Ahl al-Bayt (Allah’s prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household).
As usual, the al-Abbas’s (p) holy shrine has prepared a condolence program including many activities, religious lectures and the establishment of councils to commemorate this sad anniversary.
It is noteworthy that the condolences’ processions started to flock towards the shrines of Imam al-Hussayn and his brother Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them) since this morning to extend their condolences to the Master of the Order and the Time (may Allah hasten his holy reappearance).
The condolences’ procession started from inside the holy sanctuary of Aba al-Fadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him) marching by the area between the two holy shrines to arrive to the shrine of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) where a lamentation council was held, as well as reading some poems and words of condolences to House of the Prophecy (Allah’s prayers be upon them), expressing the love of the servants of the two holy shrines, as well as their adherence to the path drawn by Imam Ali al-Hadi (peace be upon him) and of Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them).
On the other hand, the holy city of Karbala was in a state of mourning and grief as sign of revival of the matter of Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) and to commemorate this sad anniversary.
It is noteworthy that the holy shrines in Karbala organize processions on the occasions of birth or martyrdom of Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) throughout the year.
