The Department of Husseini Rites and Processions of the holy shrines of Imam al-Hussein and al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them) organized a women mourning procession in honor of Umm al-Baneen (peace be upon her) and to extend their condolences to her son Aba al-Fadhl al-Abbas (peace be upon him) on her death anniversary.
The Department is used to organize this mourning procession annually, and a large number of mourning women from inside and outside Karbala participated in it, as well as a group of female visitors who participated in the procession of condolences. This procession is part of the mourning program prepared for the commemoration of this sad occasion. This program is not limited only to men, but there is a women mourning imprint, to confirm the continuation of her path and as part of the loyalty towards her sacrifices, and to extend the condolences to the imams of the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) on this memory.
This procession starts from the courtyard of the shrine of Aba Abdullah al-Hussein (peace be upon him) to offer condolences. Then towards the shrine of her beloved son; Aba al-Fadhl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), to offer condolences to him, passing through the square between the Two Holy Shrines. The procession is led by a symbolic coffin, in addition to a group of children wearing black and holding candles as a sign of grief and sorrow.
One of the mourners in this procession, Hajja Umm Mohamad, told Al-Kafeel Network, “The commemoration of this anniversary on the occasion of the death of Umm al-Baneen (peace be upon him), should be a real revival in line with the teachings, recommendations, and instructions of the imams of Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them), and consistent with their role in life as Imams, leaders, proofs, and role models for all people, each according to his ability and capabilities and according to his understanding and awareness, so every aspect of revival is loved and desired, as long as it is in harmony with the constants of Islamic Sharia."
She added, "Lady Umm al-Baneen (peace be upon her) deserves more than that from us. But the participation in this procession is nothing but evidence to recall her positions that were written in letters of light.”
