It is Karbala. It is the shrine of Imam Hussain (as) who the grandson of the Prophet (pbuh) and our third Imam.

People are trying to touch it as it's surrounded by blessings.

There are numerous narrations about the merits of visiting this place:

Does the shrine of Imam Husain (as) contains his 'body' there?

From what I have heard his actual body is in the ground far below the zarih. His body is not encased inside that.

Is that money well spent?? Would the Imam [a] be pleased?

I can understand a need to spend on repairs but does it need to be so lavish? None of the Imams (as) lived a lavish lifestyle when they were alive so why is their tomb so lavish?

Good luck asking that to an Irani by the way. He'll go to town on you.

yes Imam Hussain's holy body is buried in his shrine located in Karbala, Iraq

The holy shrine of Ahlul-Bayt are the most sacred sites in the world, thus, they should be well taken care of. However much we spend on renovating their holy shrines, it is not enough. They are worth much more.

Taking care of and renovating their graves does not mean plastering gold and silver all over them. The money spent on buying the luxuries and extravagance for their shrines could have been spent well elsewhere.

From Kaamil az Ziyaaraat,

Reported from 'Imaam Abu `Abdallaah (as) that he said: “Allaah made the grave of Hussein (as) a responsibility of 70,000 angels who are ragged and dust is all over them. They cry him till the day of resurrection, they pray in his shrine. A prayer of one of them is equivalent to a thousand prayers of a human. The reward of their prayers are for the visitors of his grave."

The angels are covered in dust mourning for 'Imaam Hussain (as) at his shrine yet their is gold upon gold surrounding them?

A better way to honour the Imam [a] would be to spend that $11 million on promoting his name around the world. $11 million on a cage is too much.

Salaamu Alaikum

There are many thousands of people who donated money towards the building of the shrine and the task was administered in the Islamic Republic.

I think its very important that due reverence is given to these holy sites by means of beautifying the structures and area in which the holy Imams are buried.

Its not just a cage though is it? It is the resting place of Imam Hussain (as) who we owe our lives to.

Brother, the money donated was specified ONLY for renovating the holy tharih. So, if you have any objections, please contact the donators.

I think after all many years of injustice and dhulm under Saddam, Imam Hossein's Shrined needed renovation. As far as money spent, as long as the money was spent with local Shia businesses and people, I am Ok with it. It provided jobs and opportunity for them.

In my opinion, it would be much better if they gave the money to the poor people around the globe (to hungry people, to orphans, to those who are deeply in debt and now are in jail, to sick people who cannot afford to buy medicines, to those who cannot get married due to financial problems, ...) and then grant this thawab (reward) to Imam's soul. Definitely, it would please him more. The shrine must be beautiful but for being so, it doesnt need to be made of gold.

Is it not possible for them to beautify it to a similar degree without spending 11 million dollars? Could they not have used other materials and techniques to produce the same effects?

Why not out of gold? What else is gold good for, if not decoration(and sometimes in technology). We can't eat gold, can we?

We can use much cheaper materials. We should prioritize our needs specially when our sources are limited. The first priority should be helping the poor, the homeless, the sick, ... . Then when there is no poor, homeless, ... man, we can decorate the shrines with gold. I think if Imam (a) were alive, it would be his first option (or at least one of his first options).

Why was money being collected from donators to fund extravagance? Even if someone wanted to donate money to specifically add in more gold to the grave of Imaam Hussain (as), why would we, rather, those in charge of the shrine of Imaam Hussain (as), allow this instead of teaching the donators to fund projects which solidify tashayyu by printing more of our early books and schools for teaching our children religion and building more masaajid and translating works to different languages? This gold isn't benefiting the Aa'imma (as).

What do you have to say about the ahaadeeth which instruct us to perform the ziyaara of Imaam al Hussain (as) while in a state of distress, eating simple food while keeping away from more complex foods and cry upon the grave of Hussain (as)? How do you expect people to enter the shrine of the Imaam (as) in distress when the first things they see are these elaborate gold structures? Does it not make sense to use other material?
