Ayatollah Al-Qazwini leads the prayers in the shrine of Imam Hussein


     For many years, and until now, the shrine of Imam Hussein has witnessed thousands of visitors, and in May, Ayatollah Qazwini led thousands of the faithful visitors in the daily prayers in the shrine of Imam Hussein. Ayatollah Al-Qazwini first prays the daily noon prayer despite the scorching heat, and then delivers a powerful speech about teachings of Islam, the holy prophet and his family. Then he holds the Maghrib and Ishaa' prayers at night also followed by a speech. Visitors from all around the world go to Karbala for visiting Imam Hussein and they all participate in the daily prayers with Ayatollah Al-Qazwini. After the collapse of the Ba'ath regime, visitors of Imam Hussein have increased and are still increasing and we ask Allah to help the Shi'a of Iraq and protect the shrine of Imam Hussein.
