Cradle of Love- part 4

 

Fifth Sequence: Development

The shrines of the Imams in Iraq have always been faced with the problem of lack of enough space. But in recent years, due to some important events such as the fall of Saddam and the unprecedented gathering of people on Arba'een, this problem has become much more serious.

After the reconstruction, now the organization needs to enter the development phase, which is much more difficult and more sensitive than reconstruction.

The holy Shrine of Imam Ali (as) is the first place where the problem of lack of space is obvious. This shrine is only about 12,000 square meters, which is not enough for the massive number of pilgrims.

But the development of the shrine in Najaf is very difficult due to the old and densely populated buildings around the shrine.

There was a land on the west side of the shrine, with a number of hotels and a parking space, so that the Ba'athists could control the Shias in terms of security.

Later, the land was bought in cooperation with the Iraqi government. In the next stage, the hotels were demolished and the largest development project of the Shrine of Imam Ali (as) in the history began.

The new project, with the suggestion of the organization, and approval of the Ayatullah Al-Sistani, was named after Imam Ali’s wife, Hazrat Zahra (as).

One of the important features of this land is that it was precisely the route and the landing area of the caravan of the infallible Imams. When they wanted to visit the shrine of their forefather, and now a courtyard and a roofed area is going to be built here, in the name of their dear mother.

The new land is about 60.000 meters, 5 times the total area of the shrine.

But there is still a major concern. Keeping the visibility of Imam Ali's dome from a distance is very important and tall buildings should not be built around the shrine.

This is while, using this land, about 220.000 meters will be added to the holy shrine which is 18 times the total area of the current shrine, so we should think about construction underground.

More than 10 meters of digging, along with hard and extensive operation of piling. and the construction of a concrete structure have been the main stages of the work in this place. The designing was done in Shahid Beheshti University based on genuine Islamic architecture and it won the first place in the Iranian Concrete Festival.

In this project, about 110,000 meters is going to be added to the pilgrimage space and 110,000 meters to the public spaces of the shrine.

So far, two parts of the pilgrimage space have been opened, and the rest of the work will be completed soon.

 

it will be continued...
