Ahlulbayt TV interviews pilgrims on the days Arbaeen, December 2013, as they enter the city of Karbala from the city of Najaf.

Injustice against the Courageous Daughters of Islam
Like her mother, Lady Zainab was born into a household blooming with the choicest blessings of the Almighty. They both had the greatest of upbringings - one by the Prophet and Lady Khadija, the other by Imam Ali and Lady Fatima (peace be upon them all). The tragedies that Lady Zainab faced were many: the Ummah committed atrocities against her blessed family, they were treated as prisoners in the cities that they used to live in, they were prevented from mourning their losses, and what was rightfully theirs was snatched away. . .

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. . .

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. . .

Muharram The Month of Mourning
Imam Ridha (a.s.) said: With the advent of the month of Muharram, my father Imam Kadhim (a.s.) would never be seen laughing; gloom and sadness would overcome him for (the first) ten days of the month; and when the tenth day of the month would dawn, it would be a day of tragedy, grief and weeping for him.   Amaali Saduq, pg. 111
