Raisi stressed the necessity of planning all the necessary preparations to hold the Arba'een procession as grandly as possible, and added: "It is necessary for all institutions to be jihadist, both in terms of diplomatic consultations with Iraq and in providing the necessary infrastructure, in the field of facilitating the Arba'een pilgrimage".

The President also instructed the governorates to take advantage of the great capacity of these groups in holding the Arba'een procession by supporting the popular and jihadist groups in the provinces.
