Salam. If the person lives in another country and has the wish to be buried in Iraq, there are governmental regulations about shipping a person's remains. The country where that person lives has laws that need to be followed. For example, the person who died would need a medical statement that the body is not contagious. The casket would need to be inside a lead box that would not leak, then placed inside a wooden crate which is nailed shut and has special seals that show if there was tampering or opening. The funeral home would need government permission to transport the body by airline and not all airlines provide that service. The licensed funeral home worker would need to drive the prepared package with the person's remains to the licensed airline and make sure that the remains were placed on the airplane.

At the arrival in the airport in Iraq, the person's remains would be in the customs area and the customs workers would wait for the person who would need to personally claim the body and sign documents that the body was picked up. Because the whole thing is very heavy and would not fit inside an ambulance or hearse, the wooden crate would need to be opened which means workers or relatives of the deceased would need to use crowbars to remove it. After lifting the lead box into the vehicle, the deceased would need to be transported to the cemetery location where the bodies are washed. The cemetery would take care of everything but of course the price will depend on the location of the cemetery.

The most expensive part of the international burial is the western country (funeral home, trip to airport, airline shipping) and could reach $15,000. The price of the cemetery plot, washing the body, wrapping the body in kaffan, is a separate price. The temporary grave marker with the name written in chalk on it is probably free, but the grave stone with the name carved on it would be a separate price.

This does not answer your question of whether someone can be buried in Iraq, but I just want you to know that the person needs to save his money if he has such a wish. May Allah SWT grant all halal wishes.

One of the reasons to the importance of this cemetery is its proximity to Imam 'Ali's (a) holy shrine.

In addition, it has been indicated and admired frequently in Shi'areferences. It appears the earliest hadith about it is one narrated by al-Kulayni (255/869 - 329/940-1), said to be from Imam 'Ali (a). Subsequent references have narrated this hadith numerously. In this hadith, Imam 'Ali (a), accompanied with one of his companions, goes to Wadi l-Salam and uttered: "No pious man passes away on any part of the earth unless his spirit is ordered to come to Wadi l-Salam. Here, is a part of Heaven."[8]

 Al-Kulayni, al-Kafi, Vol.3, P.243

 

Is the martyr considered a Karbala pilgrim if he died on the path or in Karbala?
translated by Google translate
question
Who is a martyr to go to Karbala with a view to pilgrimage?
Concise answer
In connection with the rewards of the pilgrimage of Imam Hussein (AS) from Imam Baqir (AS) is quoted as follows: 
If people knew that revenge was on the pilgrimage of Hossein ibn Ali's grave, they would surely have eased their enthusiasm, and their voices would be cut off because of their sorrow. 
I say: "What is a reward for your pilgrimage?" 
The Imam Baqir(as) said: "He who writes on his pilgrimage to God through the joy and gladness of Allah, the Almighty, has received thousands of Hajj and a thousand Umrahs, the reward of thousands of martyrs from Badr, the one thousand fasting, the reciprocal of thousands of charity accepted, the reward The release of a thousand servants who have been released in the cause of God is reserved for him and continuously during the year from every pest, the lowest of which is Satan, and Allah Almighty has commanded the archangel to take him forward and behind And right and left and up and down the steps, keep it. If, in the course of the year, if he died, the angels of divine mercy came to her and gave her a bath, a shroud, a forgiveness for her, and seeking forgiveness, until her grave was given to her, and as much as the length of the radius of the eye in her grave, she enlarged and opened, and from the grave's pressure They put it in guard and fear the two angels who are angry and fearful, and give him a door to the paradise and give his book to his right hand, and on the Day of Resurrection a light will be given to him between the Maghreb(West) and the East It illuminates from the beam and calls it a sign: 
This is one who has piloted Imam Hussein (AS) by the enthusiasm and taste, and after this Neda(call), Ahadi (No one)will not remain on the Day of Resurrection unless he wishes and desires that he would have been from one of  pilgrims of the grave of the Prophet's son Abdullah Al-Hussein (AS) . [1]

Home »What is the reward of martyrdom of Imam Hussein? Is it a martyr's sentence?
 
1391/01/11 18:05 Content ID: 65167

Hello..which are they who go to the pilgrimage of Imam Hussein and they are killed or assassinated in the shrine or are martyred in the shrine? 
Is there martyrdom in the shrine of Imam Hussein or on the way of pilgrimage to testify on the front ????? 
What is the martyrs of Imam Hussein's shrine? 
Are Imam Hussein's martyrs who have the same token of honor and can intercede ???? 
Are they cleared with their first drop of blood in their sins? 
And I think this is the position of the martyrs on the way to the pilgrimage of Imam Hussein, like martyrs on the front and the army, and they ask God for help. ????????

Note a few points: 
1. In terms of jurisprudence, the difference between the martyrs of the Jihad Square and those who are martyred on missions is this: martyrs of the Ghazni fighters are not given and buried with their bloody clothes, but martyrs in non-combat zones like humans Others are given a bath and are buried and buried. (1) 
2. For the pilgrimage of Imam Hussein, rewards and blessings and many works in the traditions referred to outside of this article. Of course, awarding rewards depends on the amount of purity of intention and other factors that can affect its excessive and defective, 
The following is quoted from Imam Sadiq (AS) as to the killing of those who visit Imam Hussein's pilgrimage: 
"If the cause of Hussein (peace be upon him), on the way of his pilgrimage, is killed with the first drop of blood, all his sins are forgiven. His royal nature, like the nature of the prophets, is washed in a way that is pure from the nature of the animal of the unbelievers and the transgressors. It is pure and purified; so does his heart be washed away, and every single gross is removed from the believer, and while he visits God, which is pure of all impurities, and the intercession of the family and thousands His brothers have been depreciated, and angels with Gabriel and the angel of death pray for him, and his shoes and hanet are given in paradise, and his tomb He will be wide and naked. 
A door opens from the gates of Paradise, and the angels will give him paradise, and after eighteen days he will fill the kingdom, and will remain there until the threshold of resurrection with the friends of God. 
After the beginning of the resurrection, he will also take up the soil and once again blurs with the Prophet and Ali and the Imams of Light (peace be upon him), they will bring good tidings of salvation and bring him along with him to get out of the Kowsar dock. He drinks and drinks everyone who loves. "(2) 
3. Although in his high narration, he says: "If the cause of Hussein (as) is killed on the way to his pilgrimage, with the first drop of blood, all his sins will be forgiven." However, this forgiveness does not include the right of Alnas and the Bait Elmal. Therefore, Alnaas even The martyr's neck will not be lost. So, where rights are trampled over to another person, repentance alone and without satisfaction is not sufficient, but it must have the consent of the rightful owner. Because the owner of the right is another one. Of course, in cases where the right of a substitute is inadvertently made, it must be compensated only and repentance is not necessary because no sin has been committed. 
4. Granting a reward to a martyr depends on the amount of purity of intention and other factors that can affect its excessive and defective. Therefore, all martyrs are not ranked and have equal status and rewards. 
The study of the book "The Virtues and Sire of Imam Hussein (as) - in the Word of the Elders" is authored by Abbas Azizi in this field. 
Regarding what happened, the answer to your other questions will also be clear. For more information, as well as the issue of intercession and how to award a reward, and ... contact colleagues in the Voice Department of the telephone department at (09640).

The reward for pilgrimage to the grave of Hussein (AS) and to die in this way (holy tale)
Hisham bin Salem says: A man came to Imam Sadiq (AS) and said: "O son of the Messenger of Allah! Is it possible to visit the grave of the grandfather and grandfather of Imam'Abba'd Allah al-Hussein? Imam Sadiq (as) said: yes.
He said: "What is the reward of one who visits the grave of Imam Hussein (AS)?"
He said: If he believes in his imamate and follows his prophetic tradition, heaven is his reward.
He said: "What is the reward and the reward of someone traveling to Karbala and visiting the grave of Imam Hussein (AS)?"
The Prophet said: Among the rewards given to him is that the angels of mercy come to his funeral, bring his dress and garment from heaven, pray on his body, cover him with a cover of paradise, send him a carpet of flowers and basil for him His tomb draws from the four sides of his feet and above his head, to the left and to the right, and flows from the inside of his grave into the paradise, and the smell of heavenly paradise adds to the space of his grave; he is in these clerical conditions It is spiritual until the Day of Resurrection comes.

W. Salam Hameedeh! 

Thank you for your reply. Though I am still not sure if it is really possible for a non native of Iraq to get a burial there. I think I should contact the Iraqi embassy here. Anyhow Thank you once again.
