Over 2.6 Million Iranians Travel to Iraq for Arbaeen

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The number of the Iranian pilgrims who have traveled to Iraq for this year’s Arbaeen season has surpassed 2.6 million, an official said.

The chairman of the Arbaeen central headquarters of Iran said on Sunday that over 2.6 million Iranian pilgrims have so far crossed the border into Iraq.

Majid Mirahmadi also noted that 600,000 Iranian pilgrims have returned to the country after making the pilgrimage.

On Friday morning, Iran closed all land border crossings used by the pilgrims for traveling to Iraq following a massive influx of travelers and growing concerns about their health.

Iranian Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi said a huge number of pilgrims have flocked to the land borders since Thursday, while Iraq lacks the necessary capacities to allow them entry.

The minister also called on the Iranian pilgrims who have plans to travel to Iraq to postpone their departure and refrain from heading for the border until further notice.

High temperatures, a shortage of means of transportation in Iraq, and difficulty in access to drinking water have exposed many pilgrims to sunstroke in the border areas.

Iranian officials have predicted that a total of five million pilgrims will travel to Iraq during this year’s Arbaeen season.

  1. Rafiq. I love you and to remind you!

    They do not know and reliaze that they truely commite idols ( a man or big black stone ) according to God’s word:

    “You must not make idols for yourselves, and you do not build idols or statues ( Kabah Stone ) for yourselves; Do not place carved stones in your land to worship them, for I am the LORD your God.” Imamat 26:1.

    “Whoever bows down and worships idols, Allah will curse their 3,4 offspring! Exodus 20:5.

    Whoever associates partners with Allah, then indeed he has committed a great sin. Q.4:48. The unpardonable sin, the sin of Shirk.

    MUSLIM ISMAILI do not commite Idol like Black stone in Meccah.

    Because of that I do not follow Ahmadiyah belief. I let you know Rafiq. I love you.

    GBY 🙏❤️
