Iranians mark Arba’een of Imam Hussein’s martyrdom

Iranians from all walks of life mark the 40th day after the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (PBUH), the third infallible successor of Prophet Mohammad (Blessings of God upon him and his progeny), while millions of others have travelled to Iraq to honor the event at the third Shia Imam’s shrine in the holy city of Karbala.

According to Press TV, the occasion called Arba’een occurs 40 days after Ashura, the tenth day of the lunar calendar month of Moharram, when the grandson of Prophet Mohammad (Blessings of God upon him and his progeny) was martyred at the hands of the tyrant of the time, Yazid I, back in the seventh century.
