The first day of the month of Rabi`-ul-awwal has been confirmed to be Monday, November 20, 2017

Why are millions flocking to Karbala? Why are people drawn to the tragedy of Karbala and Imam Hussain (as)? These very questions are on the lips of every person today. Ahlulbayt TV brings you exclusive footage and commentary by brother Ali Fadhil as he explains the significance of the day of Arbaeen.

Reflections on the pilgrimage of LOVE
Physically exhausting, yet spiritually uplifting, are the words to describe the anniversary of 40 days after the martyrdom of Imam Husayn(a). It is dubbed 'the world's largest peaceful gathering'. But peaceful isn't the only word I'd use to describe the experience. In fact, for the most part, it is far from peaceful! Can you imagine the combined chaos of 26 million devotees, driven by their passion, only to be united by one incentive. . .

The Women of Karbala: Keeping Imam Hussain's Message Alive
The women present at the Battle of Ashura in Karbala, Iraq, in 61 AH were entrusted with a special mission: to keep Imam Hussain's (peace be upon him) message alive. Under the guidance of Imam Zainul Abideen and the leadership of Lady Zainab (peace be upon them), the women were to spread the message of Imam Hussain's sacrifice even while they went through huge ordeals and sorrows. Their grief at the murder of the Imam was a vehicle of change, and cannot be separated from their accomplishment of the mission. . .

Significance of Arba'een and the Performance of the Ziyarat of Arba'een]
Why forty days? Because the number 40 holds tremendous spiritual significance in the realm of transformation. Jesus wandered in the desert for forty days in order to experience purification and come to a greater understanding of himself and his mission. Moses and his people traveled through the desert for forty years before arriving at their home in the holy land. . .
