The Arbaeen Ziyarah is one of the greatest manifestations of love towards Prophet Muhammad and his holy family. Starting next week, millions from across the globe, will embark on a march on ‘the highway to heaven.’  They will be headed to Karbala, Iraq to pay their respects to Master of Martyrs, Aba-Abdallah al-Husayn.

There are numerous benefits the zair (traveller) can attain from undertaking this act of devotion and worship. Some of these include: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, economical or political. However, to ensure maximal benefit, each traveller must prepare spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physical etc.
