Kadhim Reza said the daily amount of $35,000 spent in maukeb is raised by people in India also some in Tanzania, Maldives and also by pilgrims passing by.
Answering a question on the best message of Arba’een, he said,” The best message of the multi-million convention is to prepare for assisting Imam Mahdi (AS) as Arba’een is the best opportunity.
Kadhim Reza stressed,” Imam Hussein (AS) causes miracles as all pilgrims, having returned from Karbala, find the blessings of their pilgrimage to the holy shrine of the third Shia Imam in their lives.”
Indian Shia pilgrim made the comments in an interview as he was serving Arba’een pilgrims. The occasion marks the 40th day after martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein (AS), who together with his 72 companions was martyred in the Battle of Karbala back in 680 AD.
