Arbaeen (Chehlum - 40th day after Ashura ) 20th Safar



Arbaeen witnesses the LARGEST peaceful gathering EVER on the earth. Millions visit Kerbala- Iraq, to commemorate the Martyrdom of Imam Hussain (as) the grandson of the Prophet of Islam, in yr 680 AD! According to Imam Hasan bin Ali Al Askari (as), The signs of a true believer are five:- 1) Recite 51 Rak—a’t Salaat during the 24 hours of the day (17 Rakats obligatory, + 34 Rakats in Naafilah Salaats). 2) Be in Karbala for the Ziyarat of Imam Husayn (as)/other martyrs, or at least recite the Ziyarat of the Holy Imam as given below 3) To wear a ring in the right hand. 4) To put the forehead on the earth (preferably on the earth of Karbala) in prostration. 5) To pronounce “Bismillahir-Rah’maanir-Rah’eem” in clear and loud voice while praying the salats. The Purpose of Imams mission is very well summarised in this ziarat as "...made every effort and put his heart, mind, soul and life at the disposal of Thy mission to liberate the people from the yoke of ignorance" Reported by Shaykh al-Tusi, in Tahdhib al-Ahkam and Misbah al-Mutahajjid, from Safwan al-Jammal who said: My master al-Sadiq, Allah’s blessings be upon him, instructed me to visit Imam al-Husayn (`a) on the Arba`in Day, in the early forenoon, and to say the following words اَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَىٰ وَلِيِّ ٱللَّهِ وَحَبِيبِهِ alssalamu `ala waliyyi allahi wa habibihi Peace be upon the
