SHAFAQNA- A campaign has been launched by the Karbobala website to thank those hosting Arbaeen pilgrims in Iraq.
Many Iraqi people warmly welcomed and served millions of pilgrims marching from the holy city of Najaf to Karbala on the occasion of Arbaeen.
Those interested can join the campaign on Instagram and other mobile and social media networks and post their photos and messages using “#ThanksArbaeenHosts”.
Arbaeen marks the 40th day after the martyrdom anniversary of the third Shia Imam, Imam Hussein (AS) and his faithful companions in the 680AD battle of Karbala.
Millions of Shia pilgrims from over 60 countries converged on Karbala last week to take part in Arbaeen mourning rituals.
