What do you know about Al-Kadhmiya?
Thousands of visitors from Iraqi cities and neighborhoods are walking to the holy district of Al- Kadhmiya, Baghdad, to perform the religious cermonies of visiting the Shrine of Imam Moussa Al-Kadhem.
Imam Mussa Al-Kadhim is the seventh successor of the Prophet Mohammed, who is deeply revered by Moslims. He was killed by the cruel Caliph, Haroun Ar-Rashid in the jail of Baghdad in 183 AH.
Al-Kadhmiya is one of the few areas in the Iraqi capital where daily life goes on much as before as visitors from all over the world are visiting the holy shrine, keeping the local economy ticking over, as evidenced by busy streets, hotels and restaurants.
