Quranic Booths to Be Set Up on Path of Arbaeen Pilgrims

The Dar-ul-Quran al-Kareem of the Astan (custodianship) of Imam Ali (AS) holy shrine in Najaf said it will set up Quranic booths on the path of pilgrims during the annual Arabeen march.

According to the website of the Astan, Ala Muhsin Kadhim, the deputy of the Dar-ul-Quran, said it has held talks with Iraq’s Union of Quranic Associations on locations of Quranic booths.

He said the booths will offer Quranic activities like teaching small Surah of the Quran to the pilgrims and correcting their Quran reading.

There will be separate Quranic booths for men and women, he noted.

Last year 300 Quranic booths were set up on the path of the pilgrims.

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 (AS).

Each year, a huge crowd of Shias flock to Karbala, where the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (AS) is located, to perform mourning rites. Many of them also visit Imam Ali’s (AS) holy shrine in Najaf.

In the past few years, around 20 million pilgrims from all over the world, including Iran, took part in the mourning ceremonies in the Iraqi holy cities marking Arbaeen.

This year, Arbaeen falls on Thursday, November 9.
