Iranian FM: Arba'een procession to Karbala enrages, frightens adversaries

The annual Arba'een march, which attracts millions of participants and commemorates the 40th day following Imam Hussein's (AS) martyrdom anniversary, is described by Iran's foreign minister as a symbol of the fight against repression and the quest for freedom.

Iran (IMNA) - "As one of the largest gatherings of people in the world, the Arba'een march represents a colossal, noble and deep-seated motion, which annually brings together millions of Muslims from all over the world with different nationalities, races, and languages to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussein (AS), " Amir-Abdollahian wrote in a message printed in Iraq's Arabic-language al-Zora and al-Sabaah newspapers.

The senior Iranian diplomat stated that the pillars of the Arba'een procession include faith in religion, faith in God, ethics, justice, protection of the oppressed, proximity of Muslim countries, confronting the arrogant, and development of a unified Muslim Ummah.

Arba'een, according to Amir-Abdollahian, is the path of illumination that incenses Islam's foes.

It is very evident that Islam's adversaries, particularly the Zionist dictatorship, are terrified of such unity and greatness and work tirelessly to sow dissension among Muslims by agitating for strife and spreading extremist ideologies in Islamic countries. To combat this pernicious mentality, he continued, the people of the region must be extremely vigilant throughout these wars.

The minister spoke about how the media connected to the hegemonic powers chose to ignore this significant global event, or were content to show only brief scenes of the mourning event, or even presented a false narrative about one sect attempting to establish geopolitical hegemony over other sects.

All of this demonstrates their displeasure with Imam Hussein's (AS) Arba'een's fulfillment in defining the body of Islamic society.

He said that the Arba'een pilgrimage was a wonderful example of Iran and Iraq being good neighbors.

He emphasized that regardless of their nationality, Iraqis have long provided services to Arba'een pilgrims of all ethnicities, including Iranians.

Another noteworthy aspect of the march, according to him, is the popular and voluntary service of Arba'een pilgrims.

The Iranian foreign minister said, "The love for Imam Hussein (AS) has united the peoples of Iran and Iraq, and Arba'een is a wonderful symbol of friendship, sacrifice, hospitality, and unity between the two countries.

Millions of pilgrims get together during Arba'een to trek the 80 kilometers (49.7 miles) between the holy Iraqi cities of Najaf and Karbala.
