"It's a fantastic, traditional and peaceful procession....."
“It’s a fantastic, traditional and peaceful procession, where you meet Muslims and Non-Muslims alike in London.
Imam Husain stands for everyone’s freedom and justice, not just for Muslims but people, wherever they are, all over the world.”
Melissa Arnold, Buckinghamshire.
"This open, moving Husainyah is a blessing..."
“God bless you all with the caravan of Karbala on the road. This Open Moving Husainyah is a blessing to only those who can move with the message of Karbala on the streets of a non-Muslim country where they are safer and allowed to air the message of Imam Husain (عليه السلام).
May the merciful Lord bless you all who arranged and also this county where this Procession is taking place. This Procession has proved its Hussaini discipline for many years. You all are blessed for arranging this Procession, but you will never know who has also joined it from Karbala / Madina or Shaam.
Blessed will be those who will be with them on the road.”
Gulamali Dhalla, Sweden

"I want to thank you to give me a chance to be with you in Arbaeen..."

“There are great speeches, delivered in English and Urdu from esteemed speakers before the Procession.

It is a memorable experience and make sure I attend the UKs largest procession… ”
