  • No combination of 26 letters from the english language can describe the beauty of this place This place is one of the most peaceful and calm place in the world amongst the shias pf the world the beauty , the structure the minarets the tomb everything is so well built that it may leave u in wonders of the amount of love the followers of hazrat abbas (a.s) carry in their hearts lots of zayars (pilgrims) visit this place and also visit the holy shrine of imam hussain which is across the bainul harmain which is the passage between the two shrines
  • This place holly shine of one of the best muslims leaders
  • No words can explain his personality, He is Abbas a.s. the son of Ali a.s. the brother of Hussain a.s. It is said that the every year a list is prepared that who will be included in the visitors of holy shrine of Hussain a.s. That list is approved by Moula Abbas a.s.. It is he who allows you, permits you, safe guards you and takes care of the family back home, I wonder on those who tie imam zamin to zawars of Hussain a.s. and Abbas a.s. Where as all the responsibility of zawar lies in the hand of Abbas a.s. I do not remember any of my wish i had presented to my master and he has not granted. He loves the visitors of Hussain a.s. so much that he a.s. welcomes you when you reach the Land of Karbala..
  • A great place called Janabe Abbas A.S. tomb must visit,  a shrine is opposite to Imam Hussain A.S. at a walking distance. A brother of Imam Hussain A.S. was killed on 10th of Moharram (Ashuraa) at the bank of river Phurrat after cutting his both hands while trying to fetch water for Sakina A.S; a niece.
  • The Al-‘Abbās Mosque or Masjid al-‘Abbās is the mausoleum of ‘Abbās ibn ‘Alī and historical building, located across from the Imām Husayn Mosque in Karbalā, Iraq. ‘Abbās was son of Ali ibn Abi Talib and the half-brother of Hasan and Husayn, and was the flag-bearer for Husayn in the Battle of Karbalā. Also, he was the chief of the caravans of Husayn ibn Ali. The distance between the shrines of ‘Abbās and Husayn is the same as the distance between the hills of Al-Safa and Al-Marwah. The shrine is especially revered by the Shia who visit it every year, in the month of Muharram rather than various other times of the year. Environmental effects over the years have caused the Euphrates river to change direction. Nearly 1400 years after the Battle of Karbalā, the river flows across the grave of ‘Abbās and encircles it. It is said that the Euphrates has come to ‘Abbās now. In recent years the shrine has undergone a series of enhancements and additions, such as the re-gilding of the dome, and more recently covering the former courtyard with a roof to accommodate pilgrims better. Each year the shrine is visited by millions of pilgrims coming from all over the world.
