What is Araba'een
Arba'een, also known as Chehellom marks 40 days after Ashura that commemorates the martyrdom of Hussain, ibn Ali , grandson of the Prophet. Imam Hussain is known for his brave stand and his selfless act of sacrificing himself and his dear family for the sake of Islam.
The Arba'een Walk
The Arbaʽeen Pilgrimage, or the Arbaʽeen Walk, is one of the world's largest annual public gatherings.
The pilgrimage is marked by long walks from Najaf or Basra to Karbala. The long walks are done in the name of Hussain ibn Ali, who is known to stand up against tyranny and oppression. He symbolises universal freedom, social justice, and compassion.
What we are doing for the Arba'een walk
