TEHRAN (IQNA) – Names of Iranian Qaris and members of Tawasheeh groups selected to hold programs for pilgrims during Arbaeen this year were announced.


The Qaris and Tawasheeh groups form a Quranic convoy named Noor (light).

They will perform programs such as Quran recitation sessions and Tawasheeh (religious singing) for the pilgrims on their way to the holy city of Karbala, Iraq.

Hassan Mohammadi, Seyed Karim Mousavi, Seyed Mostafa Hosseini, Vahid Khazaei, Ali Shekofteh and Mehdi Tajvar are among the Quran reciters of the convoy.

There are also three Tawasheeh groups in the convoy, namely al-Warethin from Alborz province, Meshkat from Khuzestan province and Thaqalayn from Yazd province.

Arbaeen 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.

In the past few years, around 20 million pilgrims from all over the world took part in the mourning ceremonies in the Iraqi holy city marking Arbaeen.

Arbaeen falls on Tuesday, October 30, this year.
