1- Kadhimiya Holy Shrine / Baghdad
Kadhimiya Holy Shrine was and is still a place surrounded by the holy angels, and a good neighbor; loved by scholars and pious people. It is the glorious venue where kings and sultans stand before in reverence; where the sublime honor yields in submission; where wishes are fulfilled by Allah. It is a spot where the Divine Mercy and Blessings descend, by which all hearts are enchanted. Hence, it is worthy of being the heart of Kadhimiya and crown of Baghdad. It welcomes the visitors, from far and near, who are longing for it, hailing them with its domes that are brighter than the sun and its golden minarets extending high in the sky. It is as if they are calling visitors to the place where wishes are fulfilled and prayers are answered with the will of Allah. It is verily the place where the distressed get relief and where the oppressed resort and then go back to their people in joy… It is the paradise of Musa Al-Kadhim [AS] and Mohammed Al-Jawad [AS].
Holy Shrine of imam abu Hanifa / Baghdad
In one of its old quarters, with typical Baghdadi architectural style, where we feel the air of a thousand and one nights, near the eternal Tigris river, in the Al- A’adhamia district, lies the tomb of the Master of Theologians, Imam Abu Hanifa, who was buried there in the year 150 of the Hegira (770 AD).
Al-A’adhamia, also known as the “Pearl of Rosafa”, is located on the Tigris, 12 km from Baghdad. According to historical data, it was part of the Rosafa region. It was built after the riots of Errawandiya, during the time of Caliph Abu Jaafar Al-Mansour, and became popular with wealthy merchants and notables who built their palaces there. Its souks soon developed, including the most famous souk Yahia, cited by historians such as Ibn Al Jouzi, Al Yaacoubi and Al Khatib Al Baghdadi. The region of Al-Aadhamia housed the Cemetery of Al Khaizarane, but when Abu Hanifa was buried there, the area came to be known as Abu Hanifa’s Quarter or Al-A’adhamia, in reference to his name alImam Aadham (the Grand Imam).
