The holy city of Karbala will witness the massive mourning procession of Bani Asad tribe, which commemorates the burial anniversary of al-Taff martyrs’ bodies on the 13th of Muharram after the noon and afternoon prayers.
This mourning procession dates back to the year of 61 AH, three days after the tragedy of Karbala; when the Bani Asad tribe’s men came to bury the martyrs’ bodies and then Imam Zain al-Abideen miraculously joined them and buried the pure bodies.
Imam Mahdi, may Allah hasten his honorable reappearance, addressed Imam Hussein, peace be upon him, saying: “Peace be upon Him who has been buried by the people of the villages”.
Every year, Shia mourners from all over the world come to holy Karbala to attend this mourning procession.
When Bani Asad tribe’s women complete their mourning ceremonies, the tribe’s men enter with the Bedouins into Imam Hussein’s, peace be upon him, holy shrine to perform a ceremonial funeral and to mourn and lament the Imam and his honorable companions.
It is worth noting that Imam Hussein Media Group will cover this massive procession as did in previous years.
