HOLY CITY OF KARBALA, Iraq: Opening ceremony of new zarih (Gold & Silver net on grave) of Habib ibne Mazahir al-Assadi, the renowned companion of Imam al-Hussain (PBUH), was held in the Holy Hussaini Shrine in the holy city of Karbala on Thursday. Mutawalli (caretaker) of Hussaini shrine Sheikh Abdel Mahdi al-Karbalai, Secretary General Sayyed Jafer al-Mousawi and large number of social and religious dignitaries attended.

The old zarih was 70 years old, according to Afdhal ash-Shaami, official spokesman of shrine.

Quranic verses and narrations about Aaimmah ahlul-bayt have been inscribed on the new zarih made of gold, silver, copper, steel and wood. It took three years to complete the new structure.

Habib Ibne Mazahir was of the Banu Asad clan. He was the childhood friend of Imam al-Hussain (as) and was a prominent citizen of Kufa.

He was one of the people of Kufa who sent letters to Grandson of Holy Prophet Imam al-Hussain ibne Ali (as) and invited him to Kufa. He embraced martyrdom along with grandson of Holy Prophet (PBUH) at the age of 75 in battle of Karbala.
