TEHRAN (IQNA) – A convoy of Bosnian Muslims will travel to Iraq to take part in the annual Arbaeen marches in the Arab country.


According to IQNA’s Sarajevo branch, the convoy’s visit will come at the invitation of the Astan (custodianship) of Hazrat Abbas (AS) holy shrine in Karbala.

It will include university scholars, media persons, and families of Bosnian martyrs.

They are also planned to meet with a number of Iraqi religious scholars and political figures during the visit to Iraq.

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 the Iraqi city of Karbala, where the holy shrine of Imam Hussein (AS) is located, to perform mourning rites.

Arbaeen falls on October 19 this year.

Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country on the Balkan Peninsula in southeastern Europe.

Islam is the most widespread religion in the country.
