Photos From The 40 Day 1: in Iraq

 This is a family before Arbaeen, still making the long pilgrimage

Arbaeen  (40 - meaning 40 days after the battle of Karbala, in the exact same linguistic usage as Pentecost - 50 - meaning 50 days after Easter, was used in Greek and we still use it today) is two weeks past, and here are some photos.

The men below are from Bhayandar, India, just outside Mumbai. The area's populace is about 1/3 Muslim, and they made the trek this year.
