Bismillah Rahman Rahim
Waqf is the bond of love and faith
A spring is always boiling
It is undoubtedly the best practice
It is both love watching and fortune telling
Those who know are lovers of God
They are separated from losses and are in profit
Those who have the love of Hussain (AS) in their hearts and in the air of Karbala, during many years, in the most difficult conditions and with the least facilities, even on foot, they put their hearts on the road to Nineveh, and their slow but steady steps have never stopped moving until today. . The eagerness to serve and host the pilgrims of Karbala is a good tradition that has been established since ancient times by the honorable people of Iraq and by the Shiites of other countries, and every year the scope of this enthusiastic welcome has increased.
After years of sojourn and the difficulty of visiting the sacred shrines, in recent years and with the overthrow of the Baathist regime, the ground for the presence of millions of Hosseini pilgrims in different days of the year, especially Arbaeen days, has been provided, which makes it difficult to organize and accommodate Hosseini guests.
History of Hosseiniyeh and ZairsaraiKhorasanis
In 1333 AH (1374 AH), good people from the Greater Khorasan region had understood that in order to host Hosseini pilgrims, one should think and provide a space and a place worthy of the dignity of these Hosseini lovers, so that with a lasting service, the home make this world and the hereafter prosperous. Therefore, in the year 1333 AH (1374 AH), 39 people from Khorasani benefactors bought a plot of land with an area of ​​4018 square meters for the amount of 928420 Rials, in the city of Karbala and near the tent of Aba Abdallah Al-Hussein (AS), and dedicated it to the construction of Hosseiniyeh and the Shrine.
With the political developments in Iraq, as well as the overthrow of the Baathist regime and the change of government, the construction and completion of this holy building accelerated. Therefore, in the first step, 16 of the prominent and trusted personalities of the people were entrusted with the follow-up of building construction, and all these people have received the approval of Grand Ayatollah Sistani (Dam Zaleh Al-Sharif). After that, the secretariat and staff were formed to attract people's help and plan and follow up the construction work as well as providing services to the pilgrims.
The new custodians who have been approved by Grand Ayatollah Sistani (Dam Zaleh Al-Sharif) and assigned to carry out this lasting and huge project are as follows:
- Dr. Mohammad Ali Ansari
- Haj Sheikh Mahmoud Waez Shahidi
- Haj Syed Mohammad Baqer Misbah Mousavi

Setting up a procession and providing services to pilgrims
This land has been dedicated for the purpose of building a Hussainiyah and a pilgrim's house to host the pilgrims of Aba Abdallah al-Hussein, and until the completion and operation of the project, the land and existing spaces will be used to set up a procession and serve the pilgrims.
The first step of providing services to pilgrims was taken in Arbaeen of 2013 and a large procession was held in Hosseinieh ground in which 150 Hosseini servants participated voluntarily. Within 6 days, 24,000 people were accommodated and more than 250,000 people were fed, which was unprecedented in its kind. In 1994, 1995, 1996 and 1997, even though the construction project continued, the procession and reception of pilgrims continued, and with the closure of a part of the project, the service work continued.
