Resources for journeying on "The Highway to Heaven"

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 (traveler) 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 traveler must prepare spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physical etc.
