Members Trek a Symbolic Journey to Zaria to Attend Arbaeen

Members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria trek a symbolic journey  to Zaria on foot to attend 40 day commemoration of Imam Husain(AS) popularly known as Arabeen.

 The members which comprises of brothers and sisters carried the foot journey to Zaria from  Kaduna, Kano, Jos and other towns. They arrived in Zaria on Saturday (20/safar/1433) for Arbaeen commemoration.

During his lecture on Saturday the 20th of Safar 1433, the Leader of the Islamic Movement Sayyid Ibraheem Zakzaky described such effort as a way of showing love for Imam Husain(AS); it also describes the popular saying among the Followers of Ahulbayt which reads: Ya laytana kunna ma’akum fana fooza fauzan adheema. (“How we wish we were with you so we would earn a great achievement).  It also shows their utmost intention to be with Imam Husain(AS) had it been they lived during Karbala tragedy because of love for Imam they have in their hearts. A love which cannot be obtained by wealth.

Sayyid Zakzaky prayed that the journey should be a source of atonement of their sin and of elevating of their status.
