As you went further, the pilgrims looked like drops. Once they coalesced, they gradually made rivers and then further turned into a sea.
Near Karbala, all the seas joined together to make an ocean

Time had stood still in the past few days as the great congregation on 20th Safar was just around the corner. it was Araba'en.
the number of drops would become 20 million, still there were many others who could have been there but missed it, someone like you.
