TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Imam Ali (AS) Islamic Center in Berlin, Germany, has planned a pilgrimage tour to the holy cities in Iraq on the occasion of Arbaeen.


The center will charter a flight to the holy city of Najaf on October 11 for pilgrims from Germany to participate in Arbaeen march towards the holy city of Karbala. They will return to Berlin on October 25.

According to the center, the flight and visa for the pilgrimage cost 650 euros.

Arbaeen, which is one of the largest religious gatherings in the world, comes 40 days after Ashura, the martyrdom anniversary of the third Shia Imam, Imam Hussein (AS).

Each year, a huge crowd of Shias flock to Karbala, where the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (AS) is located, to perform mourning rites.

Arbaeen falls on October 19 this year.
