Q: Is Karbala better than Mecca and what is the proof?

A: Our relation with Mecca, Karbala and Najaf is associated with our relation with our broad history. It is not good to give preference to a place over the other, knowing that what was said about Mecca makes it the best place in the earth and Allah knows best. The pious people should occupy themselves with doctrinal and life issues. What was mentioned in the question does not have anything to do with Islam or Shiism.
