A two-day photographic and film exhibition on the annual pilgrimage of Arbaeen began in the Italian capital on Saturday, Press TV reported.


Arbaeen marks the 40th day after the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein – the third Imam of Shia Muslims and a grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). It is commemorated annually through a march being the biggest in the world and known as Arbaeen pilgrimage, from many countries around the world to the Iraqi city of Karbala.


The initiative - organized by the Imam Mehdi Islamic Association and the NGO Arbaeen Travelogue, showcases a selection of photos from the world’s largest gathering in late September this year. The main focus of the exhibition is global justice.


Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of Shia Muslim pilgrims converged on Karbala in late September to commemorate the end of the 40-day mourning period for the death of Imam Hussein.


People at the photo exhibition say Arbaeen should be seen as a model for our societies. One in which each and every one of us has a role irrespective of our nationality, financial status, and ethnic or religious background.
