It should be noted that Grand Ayatollah Shirazi emphasized in his speech on the night of Ashura that God Almighty advises Muslims in the Holy Qur’an to copy some positive qualities of non-Muslims. He noted that some non-Muslim groups provide extraordinary facilities such as free visa, passport, cheap hotel and free transport on Some religious occasions, which the Shia Muslims can imitate for Arbaeen pilgrimage.

He advised the government of Iraq and other Muslim countries to make all efforts in order to provide free services to the pilgrims of Arbaeen.

“Now that the Iraqi people are providing a large portion of the required food for the pilgrims for free, the Iraqi government and big businessmen should also make an effort and solve other needs.” Grand Ayatullah Shirazi added.

Grand Ayatollah Shirazi recommended that all-out efforts should be made to provide free transportation and everything related to Arbaeen pilgrimage, including providing accommodation for the pilgrims.

Efforts should also be made to get all Islamic and non-Islamic governments to cooperate for the realization of these goals, he further stressed.
