  5. I have been to South Africa too and I think it was one of the most beautiful countries I have ever seen. We just were in Cape Town and south of there, but I have heard that there are many other beautiful spots in the country.
  6. I've been to a number of European and post-Soviet countries. One of the most interesting was Azerbaijan. Since there are probably many Iranians on this website, have any been to Azerbaijan?

    Trip to Iraq on Arbaeen- Do's and Dont's

    If you are walking, carry candy and chocolates to give to children along the way.
  9. Not sure who took the picture. We were discussing the pic and someone asked my brother what he thought of it. He said, "Sirat al mustaqeen".
  10. Well done to take a good plundge but donot worry about specific comments. And all Moakubs have women ams men seperate rest areas.
  11. Absolutely, sis! I'll add that InshaAllah and may you and your loved ones get innumerable blessings InshaAllah! And thank you for praying for me in your thread! ❤❤❤ I'll write a general letter for all momineen and muslimeen as well, but if anyone wants something in particular write it here and I'll InshaAllah write that for you too.
  12. awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww wallah you are such a sweet person. Plz Plz include in it that Allah restores my mother's health, giver her long life and that she be happy and do fun activities and vacations with her kids (me and my brother) <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 Mwah Mwah Mwah. JAzkAllah Khair sweet angel <3
  13. World! I divorce you thrice! Ever since I stepped foot in the holy lands of Iraq I quit everything else. Even when I plan trips to other destinations I just end up in Iraq anyway. There's nothing like the ziyara of Ahlul Bayt a.s.! You recharge your batteries and survive a little longer in Fasadland in the West.
  14. @Miss Wonderful Salam aleikom sis! I hope you are in good health. I asked my aunt to take me to that river where people through in letters with their wishes in Karbala (where Imam Mehdi a.A.f. appeared or disappeared). I have brought a bunch of letters from family and friends that I will throw there on their behalf. I know that you were very interested in this, so if you want I can throw a letter in on your behalf. It could say something like "May Allah swt not let you, Miss wonderful, leave this world unless he's happy with you and grant you all the other wishes you have in your heart or mind". Would you be interested in that? My aunt and I got incredible things after doing this, so it might be worth a try? Of course I'll throw one in for all momineen and muslimeen as well.
  15. Guess who's in Karbala right now? Thank you all for your helpful advice! I'm attending my first ever Arbaeen (but InshaAllah not last)!!! A dream come true!!! Can't believe it's happening. Pretty cool to see the pilgrims. I can't join any shiachatters though coz me and my cousins from England planned our trip and bought our tickets a couple of months ago. We will InshaAllah be walking from Najaf. Our main concern is the toilets. May Allah SWT have mercy on our souls and let us find those western toilets! Otherwise trauma is to be expected. I am a bit angry though. The driver, a family friend, who picked me up together with my aunt from the airport told me that I should not participate in the mashaya because nonmahrams can see me and that women should be staying in their homes. What exactly will they be seeing when you're wearing double abayas? When I bought the tickets and travelled all the way from Europe to attend Arbaeen I didn't sign up for imprisonment. "Welcome to Karbala - the city where nonmahrams will be trying to control and restrict your freedom." Imagine being married to a man like that - basically a life sentence of imprisonment. Anyway we will have a blast InshaAllah. Meanwhile he can go and lock up his own wife.

    Thank you, but I need translation to this please.
  19. Make sure the footwear and the socks are worn in and not brand new. Worn in does not mean over worn too. And this year there is a whole list of western toilet facilities. The list is floating around.
  20. My mom and sister are on walk there and two years before I walked as well.
  21. Yes there are western toilets but few so do a good home work before landing.

    Trip to Iraq on Arbaeen- Do's and Dont's

    http://fa.abna24.com/news/اعمال-و-مناسك-مذهبي/مجموعه-هشدارهای-اربعینی-چهل-تصویر-برای-زیارتی-بهتر-و-امن-ت_742116.html (advises in picture & farsi text translation is available below for entering ,staying & leaving) The second part notes the location of the stop at the border God willing, pilgrims take the Iraqi visa and the choice of their fellow citizens at the land and air borders, taking the necessary measures, taking the necessary measures, by registering the departure of Iran and entering Iraq. The steps to be followed at this stage are as follows: 14. The length of time that we wait on the ground borders to register the seal of Iran and the stamp of Iraq, we endure patience with patience and tolerance. 16. Given the demographic density at the terminals and borders, it is very important to have "fortunes" and "passing", and it also increases the rewards of pilgrimage. Respect for other elders, especially elders, observance of the elderly and women, cooperation with Iranian and Iraqi officials, pressure and not pushing for crowds and avoiding doing any opposing of these cases, are important pilgrims on this trip. 17. In airports, due to the creation of fantastic flights, happeدs can be flown with delays. In this situation, patience and tolerance will be the path to the pilgrims. * Part III Notices after arrival in Iraq 18. Comply with the safety, health and safety recommendations. For example, the use of a "mask" can greatly prevent the spread of viral diseases. 19. Pilgrims do not leave the designated routes for hiking and pedestrians. For example, on the Najaf route to Karbala, do not enter the paths of the car. Unfortunately, in the past year, due to the entry of a pedestrian into the car, several crashes occurred. 20. The group members do not meet every fifty or one hundred perpendiculars in order not to lose each other on the hiking trail. In such a way that all members of the group, for example, meet each other on a periphery 133, then continue on their path. Then again, on the perpendicular 233, they see each other ... For vertical selection, use non-redundant numbers, because usually the applications with busy Rand numbers are used. 21. The pilgrims who walk are required to stay in the curbs before the Azan of the Maghreb for night rafting and do not postpone the night after the first night because they may not find a place to rest and forced to rest in the open air They do. In this case, the likelihood of a disease will increase. 22. Put the passport into a compartment in the form of a neck, and always on the path or at rest. Putting it inside a bag, sack and ... the risk of missing it and the subsequent troubles. 23. Avoid photographing critical points and domains (ie checkpoints). Also, do not refrain from traveling to uncertain places and pay special attention to the officials' notes. 24. Avoid receiving gifts and Trusts from anonymous persons, including books, Mafatih, gifts, pens, bags, etc. Avoid getting food from anonymous and especially mobile wearers. 25. Avoiding actions that undermine the sanctity and valor of archean pilgrimage will be avoided like begging. In contrast, patterns of pure Islamic behaviors, such as respect for the elders and religious observance, are shown. 26. It is very important to observe the hijab from the Iranian pilgrim's ladies. The veil in Iraq is tiled and black in color. Therefore, covering a colored tent, mantle, scarf and the like is not acceptable and causes the pilgrim and pessimism to Iranian society. 27. During this walk, we will take advantage of this opportunity by thinking more about the revolutuin of Hosseini, the suffering of the convoy and the words of Zaynab (peace be upon him). Participating in the cultural events, lectures and mourning of mosques, which take place along the trails and in the city of Karbala, helps to this. 28. Do not pay attention to rumors and prevent them from spreading in mosques and among other pilgrims. 29. After arriving at the place of settlement in Najaf, Karbala, Kazimain and Samarra, we must remember the address of the mosque or your place of residence. Given the many similarities between the caretakers, note the name of the caretaker and its exact address and, if any, we will receive and accompany the carcass card. 30. It is necessary for the honorable pilgrims to become familiar with the customs and traditions of the Iraqi people. For example, those who accept Iraqi invitations to home know that the custom in home-catering is at most 3 days no more! Therefore, avoid staying in of their homes more than common. 31. Due to the difference in weather, the variety of foods, and the differences in the taste of cooking, it is imperative that the moderation of eating and the cooking of different foods be avoided. Last year, gastrointestinal diseases were on the way back. 32. Care should be taken to ensure the safety of tent mats and tents to prevent such things as robbery and fire. 33. We note that we are not a creditor to the Iraqi people! They are very hostile hosts, which are what they are doing in sincerity and purposely serving the pilgrims. 34. It is necessary to know that many Iraqi people, especially the people of Karbala and Najaf, are familiar with Persian or its vocabulary. So, be more careful about interactions and conflicts, and do not hurt them with the notion that they understand our words. 35. One of the moral duties, participation of the people of prayer, Imam Khomeini, martyrs veterans who opened the road to Karbala, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution and all the lovers and followers of Hosseini who did not have the opportunity to do this trip. The rewards of this pilgrimage. Therefore, we will partner with all of these loved ones in the rewards of this pilgrimage and travel on their behalf. 36. According to the opinions of the scholars announcement, including Ayatullah Sistani and many scholars of Iran to accepting the pilgrimage of Arba'in instead of the Arba'in Day, if we arrive earlier in Karbala, leave the city after pilgrimage to the problems Do not encounter after the ceremony. 37. Iraqi Mawkebs are collected from afternoon of Arbaeen Day. Therefore, with regard to the end of the service, exit faster from Karbala. 38. Exit from Iraq before visa expiry, because unauthorized residence will have a heavy fine; the first day, $ 30 and an additional $ 10 each day. Moreover, in addition to direct fines, wandering in various departments for exclusion, it causes other inconveniences and costs. 39. After the end of the ceremony, we know that all the pilgrims, the officials, the Servants of Atabat, etc. are all tired and we are not just that we are tired.Naturally, the expulsion of millions of people and pilgrims who have arrived within a minimum of two weeks and will exit within a maximum of a few days will have many problems in terms of lack of means of transportation, congestion at terminals, long walks, and more.Therefore, maintaining the respect of the elders and observing the rights of each other and patience and tolerance of the circumstances of this time. 40. Those who become ill will Quarantine themselves after returning to their country, reducing the risk of infection for family members, colleagues and other citizens.
  25. Is there any benefit to walking rather than, say, taking a bus?
