This year, over two million people around the world will InshAllah flock to Iraq to commemorate Arbaeen. We share below reflections from one of the zawaars who will be going to Iraq this year and inshAllah undertake the walk from the Holy City of Najaf to the land of Karbala:
“In a day’s time, I’ll be leaving with a group of my family and friends, leaving behind everything familiar, to make this amazing trip to the land of my Imams (AS).
I cast my mind back remembering another time, another family who left their hometown, and everything they loved, to venture out into an unknown future. Except their fate was different. For Husayn and his family (AS), only the women and children were to return back. And this drives me on..

It was indeed an honour to be a part of such an incredible organising team - recollects a mentor from Mumbai
I was highly delighted when I was given the opportunity to mentor the youth of our community for 4 days, which eventually turned out to be the most productive days of my life!
It was indeed an honour to be a part of such an incredible organizing team, where the efforts put in by each mentor and admin was outstanding.
The fact that I learnt more from the participants and the mentors than what the kids would’ve learnt from me itself proves how amazing the course was in terms of ‘learning’. The mentees were some of the humblest kids I’ve ever met. They were all so kind, polite, and most importantly, respected the elders. These qualities signify that the parenting of the kids of our community is commendable.
I wish the very best for these youths!
