The Al-Wala’ wa al-Fida’ wa al-Fateh Procession announced the start of preparations for the annual trip to Samarra to support the two holy Imams on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.

Under the slogan "Here We Are O Askariyain” and following the directives of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Sadiq al-Husseini al-Shirazi, who has been naming the last Friday of the great month of Ramadan “The Askariyain Victory Day” for 50 years, Al-Wala’ wa al-Fida’ wa al-Fateh Procession began the preparations for the annual free trip to Samarra. 

Last year, over thirty thousand pilgrims participated in the procession to the holy city of Samarra. 

It is worth noting that this pilgrimage caravan is one of the biggest of its kind in the history of Samarra. It is organized by Sayyid Aref Nasrullah, the head of the Public Relations Office of Grand Ayatollah Shirazi in holy Karbala.
