VR Karbala

is an innovative project that is aiming to bring the tragic incident of Karbala to life. Through virtual reality, VR Karbala is aiming to allow its user to walk among the companions of Imam (as), praying behind the Imam (as), listen to the heartbreaking cry of the children, ride along with Abbas (as), see the frustration of Zaynab (sa), feel the grief of Imam Hussain (as) and the vulnerability of Imam Zaynul Abadeen (as).

    What is VR?

    Virtual Reality

    Virtual Reality (VR) enables the possibility to create realistic images, sounds and other sensations that replicate a specific environment. Through VR the user’s physical presence is simulated into the virtual environment.

    360° View

    The VR technology enables the user to move with 360-degree in the replicated 3D environment, and with each movement, the software allows the environment to follows the user’s sight.

    Our history

    The project of VR Karbala was initiated with the purpose of combining technology with historical teachings. The world around us is developing rapidly but unfortunately, there has not been much development in communicating our religious or historical teachings to the world. Hence, VR Karbala was started to teach, show and enable users to re-live historical incidents, mainly from the tragedy of Karbala by using Virtual Reality. Thus, in 2015, Mr. Nazer Hussain Mehrali decided to combine this idea in a bachelor thesis, where the hypothesis was to revive the tragedy of Karbala through VR, and combined with the subjects Entrepreneurship and Innovation. This thesis laid the conceptual foundation of VR Karbala. Since May 2016, the project of VR Karbala was officially initiated, and we are humble to present you the first scenes of our work.

      Help us produce more scenes

      We need your help to continue producing more scenes of the tragedy of Karbala. Millions wish that they had been present on the day of Ashura to help Imam Hussain (as). With VR Karbala people will have a virtual and yet realistic and unique experience of the tragedy of Karbala, where they will find themselves among the companions of Imam Hussain (as)

      However, we need your support in order to produce more scenes of Karbala.

      Surely, the paradise and salvation are saved for those, who brings forward the tears of others for Imam Hussain (as), even if it is as small as a wing of a mosquito.

      When I watched the trailer of VR-Karbala the feeling of reliving Karbala hit me hard and I was wondering how sincere I am when I say ‘I wish I had been with them so I could have attained a great attainment.

      I fully support and fully endorse VR Karbala. Please help them as much as you can by showing your support

      I want to give my support to the fantastic project of VR Karbala. We have all seen the moving promo which brought all of us to tears and we hope that we can experience the VR Karbala project soon.

      It is an honour for me to serve as a scriptwriter in the VR Karbala project. I am humbled being part of a team who tries to serve Imam Husayn (a) by revitalising his memory in the hearts and minds of his followers.

      It´s a matter of great honour and importance to support VR Karbala.
