In (1294 Hijri – 1877 AD), the Ottoman government stationed in Baghdad had imposed a tax on the transfer and burial of bodies in the holy cities of Najaf and Karbala, in order to support the Ottoman treasury with sufficient financial revenues.

Those fees were constantly rising due to the need of the Ottoman Empire for these funds, especially after the continuous deterioration of its economy as a result of the crises and wars fought by this empire such as the Ottoman - Russian war in (1877-1878 AD) and the Balkan War (1912-1913).
