IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE MOST GRACEFUL, THE MOST COMPASSINATE

What is your opinion about the participation of woman (walking on foot) in the pilgrimage of Imam Hussain's (PBUH) fortieth anniversary?

29 Muharram/ 1434

In the name of Allah: it is of the legally likeable matters, provided that woman must stay committed to her dress code and other things.

Among the advantages when woman goes to visit holy shrines specially walking is that she helps her husband raise the children according to Hussain (PBUH) tradition, when they go with the good Shia women. The participation of the woman in commemorating Hussain (PBUH) rituals plays the same role as those women did, who supported their sons and presented their lives in front of Imam Hussain (PBUH). Allah knows best.
