Namaz at the Arbaeen procession

Aza Ka Farsh Bichchao
Magar Namaz Kay Baad

Arba'een procession with specific entry points with tight security

The security is strict - as was the case with the Ashura procession. Specific entry points are designated where scouts are searching every person entering the juluus.

Al-Musta'id! (Be Prepared!)

Lovely to see scouts formation at the Main Arba'een Procession 1431 hijri at Karachi. A true depiction of the scouts slogan "Al-Musta'id" - because they know they are the front boundary to any disturbing intervention to the procession.

Start of Arba'een Procession with Hadi, Qafila bani Asad and the Symbolic Flag of Abul Fazl-il-Abbas!

Arba'een (arabic: 'Forty', urdu: 'Chaleeswan') marks the forty days of Imam Husain's (a.s.) martyrdom alongwith family and friends at Karbala.

Hadi is a dear friend and a very active member of Anjuman-e-Sajjadia (Ehlian-e-Riyasat Mehmoodabad - Awadh), and they join the main Arba'een procession as a group of Qafila Bani Asad.

Recitation of Ziyarat-e-Arba'een is very important for today.
