TOMB OF IMAM HUSAIN (A.S.)
- DEFINITION OF THE CITY: Kar'bala is a famous Islamic city before Islam with a long period. The city is also distinguished with its holiness, full history, great things and incidents, whereas the land witnessed one of the most noble martyrdom features and sacrifice, that is immortal incident of Taf ( battle of Kar'bala).
2 ـ THE LOCATION OF THE CITY: Kar'bala locates 105 kilometers far from the southwest of the capital city of Baghdad, on the desert shore of the western part of Furat and at right side of Husainiya creek.
The city also locates on the longitude of 44 degree and 40 minutes as well as on the latitude of 33 degree and 31 minutes, it has a border with Al-Anbar province at the northern part. As it also has a border at south part with Najaf province, and at the east with Hilla province and part of Baghdad province, while it also has border with Syrian desert and lands of kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
3 ـ FOUNDING OF THE CITY : The History of this sacred city returns to Babylonian time, when the area was a Christian graveyard before the Islamic conquer. It is reported by the researchers that, the word Karbala means ( nearness of God), and the word is an old Babylonian origin. The opinion of some researchers is that, in order to know the right meaning of the word Karbala, it needs to know the drawing of the word first, as well as its linguistic analysis. It was said that the word was derived or drawed from ( Kur Babul), which means in Arabic a group of an old Babylonian villages. Of those villages are Ninawi, which is near to a place called Saddatul Hindiyah, Al-Ghadhiriyah, and it is known today as ( Araadhil Husainiyah) means Husainiya lands. Then Karbala or Aqr Babul, An-Nawaawis, Al-Hirah, which is known today as Al-Haa'ir. In fact, this place was named as Haa'ir due to the fact that water was confused around the holy shrine of Imam Husain (peace be upon him), when the Abbasid Mutawakil gave command that Imam Husain's shrine must be destroyed and watered as well. Others also reported that, the history of Karbala returns to history of cities of Tusuh An-Nahrain, which situates at shore of the Balakubos river (the old Furat), a land which contains an old temple for prayers. The word Karbala is formed from two Assyrian words which are (Karb) means sacred place, and the word (Ail) also means (God). Therefore both two words means (sacred precinct of Allah). Some also said the word is a Persian origin formed from two words which are, (Kaar) means work and (Bolo) means the higher, thus the meaning of the both words is ( the higher work). One of the names of the city is (Taf). Verily, it can be assumed that the word Karbala is derived from the word (Al-Kirbah) means softness, considering the softness of land. Therefore it was named as Karbala due the softness of land. Or it may be derived from the word purity, because it is used to said in Arabic (Kar'baltul Hintah), means I purify the wheat or made it clean it. So based on that we can say Karbala is named as Karbala because the land has been purified from pebbles and jungle. The word Karbala is also a name of plant of wood sorrel, so may be the city is named as Karbala considering that there is a lot of this plants in the city.
4 - THE EXPANSION AND CONSTRUCTION OF KARBALA: Construction of this city has began on 12th Muharram year 61 A.H. after the battle of Taf (Karbala) with two days, whereas (Banu Asad) Asadids buried the holy corpse of Imam Husain (peace be upon him), his brother Abbas (peace be upon him) and his holy companions (peace be upon them).
ـ The Abbasid Al-Muntasir rebuilt the tomb sanctuaries of Karbala along with new houses around it, this was after his father Al-Mutawakil was killed, who trifled the city and destroyed all things in it. Then the first Alawids settled in the city with his sons, that man is Sayyid Ibrahim Al-Mujab Al-Dhareer Al-Kufi bun Mohammed Al-Abid bun Imam Musa Al-Kazim peace be upon him.
ـ The first fence of Hair was built in year 372 A.H, and its distance is estimated as 2400 meters square.
The Vizier ( Al-Hasan bun Al-Fadhl bun Sahlan Al-Ramhur'murzi) built the second fence of the city in year 412 A.H. and fixed four iron doors at its sides.
ـ Shah Ismail Al-Safawi visited Karbala in year 941 A.H. and dug a deep river, renovated and constructed Imam Husain's holy shrine as well.
ـ Sulaiman Al-Qanuni repaired both tombs and changed the places which are covered by sands to gardens.
ـ One of the Indian kings visited Karbala in the beginning of nineteenth century A.D. (after incident of Wahhabism which occurred in year 1216 A.H.) and built beautiful markets and houses, and settled some of the disasters in those houses and built an impregnable fence for the city.
ـ Sayyid Ali Atabatabai (author of Ar-Riyadh) took upon himself to build the third fence of the city after raid of the Wahabism, and made six doors for the fence each door has a particular name.
ـ Karbala is connected with telegraph lines in year 1860 A.D. which enable it to have communication with world.
Government offices were built in year 1285 A.H. which is equal to 1868 A.D. during the time of reformer (Mid'hat Basha), then he expanded and added new markets and buildings and destroyed part of the fence of the city which is situated at the side of the Najaf door, and added another part to the city which was named as (Abbasiya) area.
Modern buildings were erected as the streets were expanded and the lands were also dried by a faucet for pulling water which surrounded the city. This was done in year 1914 after the first world war.
5 ـ THE FEATURES: Karbala is almost 52856 kilometers square and its land is soft and purified (purified from pebbles and jungle).

Therefore, if a traveller takes any one of these ways it will lead him to the holy tomb of Imam Husain (peace be upon him), as well as graveyard of martyrs of holy battle of Taf (Karbala). So in both cases a traveller needs to pass through greenish encircled by fruits, gardens and thick palm farms.
