Posted on Tue, 2015-01-06 13:49

‘The Spiritual Walk’ is a documentary by The World Federation that follows the 3-day walk from Najaf to Kerbala in the shoes of three British Muslims: Abbas Ramji, Farhana Manekia and Sohail Kanji. This epic journey is carried out by millions every year and the documentary allows those who have not yet made the journey to get a taste of the experience.

Following the zawwar through every day and night starting with their departure from the shrine of Imam Ali (a) and ending with their entry into the holy shrine of Imam Husayn (a), the video captures the atmosphere, the physical challenges and the emotional and spiritual environment of this amazing journey.
