As usual in every year, on the thirteenth of Muharram, the Karbala tribes headed by the tribe of Bani Asad, commemorate the rituals of the burial of the holy martyrs' bodies that quenched the land of Karbala by their pure blood in the great tragedy of the battle of At-Taf, from Imam Al-Hussayn and his brother Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon them) to the rest of the martyrs.
After the noon prayer, thousands of mourners joined the great condolences' procession; the procession of Bani Asad headed towards the road of Qibla of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) up to the holy shrine then to the area between the two holy shrines, and the procession is concluded at the Flag Bearer Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him).
This condolences ritual is commemoration of what their ancestors did of rituals to bury the holy bodies, after remaining in the desert for three days under the burning sun. The heads were decapitated and the captives were taken to the Levant [Sham], and the holy bodies were left unburied. So, this is one of the important days in the hearts of the people of Karbala, because it represents the burial anniversary of Imam Al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) and all the martyrs in At-Taf.
