Zyarah Ash-Sha`baniyah commence in Karbala

By: Ismail Zabeeh

HOLY CITY OF KARBALA, Iraq: Narrations from A’immah Ahlul Bayt (pbut) say that fifteenth night of Sha’ban is the best after the night of Qadr. The birth of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh&hp)’s last descendant Savior of Humanity Al-Imam Al-Hojjah bin Al-Hassan Al-Mehdi Al-Montazar (pbuh) in Sorra Mann Ra’a (Samarra), Iraq in 255 AH increased the honor and excellence of this night.

According to the sayings of holy Prophet (pbuh&hp), Imam Mehdi (pbuh) will return to deliver humanity from darkness and strife, and he will fill the earth with justice and equity as it would have been filled with oppression and injustice.

Zyarah Ash-Sha`baniyah, or the mid Sha`ban visit to Al-Imam Al-Hussein (pbuh), is one of the most important zyaraat, according to narrations.

As festivals and a’maal to mark fifteenth Sha’ban (night between 14-15 Sha’ban, Tuesday-Wednesday, June 2-3) began at the holy Shrine of Al-Imam Abi Abdellah Al-Hussein (pbuh) on Tuesday, June 2, atmosphere in the holy city of Karbala is filled with further spirituality, bliss and happiness.

From the advent of the month of Sha’ban, devotees from across the country and other parts of the world – young and old, men and women, mostly on foot, some individually, some in caravans -, carrying white, green and red banners were heading to the holy city to achieve the honor of visiting Imam Al-Hussein (pbuh) marking 15 Sha’ban.
