In the name of Allah
With immense sorrow and grief did we receive the news of the martyrdom of the great General of Islam, the esteemed warrior, Major-General Haj Qasim Sulaymani.
He was a martyr who dedicated his entire life for the sake of Islam and service of the people and for safeguarding the Islamic values. This honorable martyr was among the devotees and lovers of the Infallible Leaders (peace be upon them), especially the Master of Martyrs, His Holiness Imam Hussain (peace be upon him). Following the footsteps of the Holy Household of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and their illuminating school of thought, he stood in the front row to fight against the enemies of Islam, the treacherous terrorists and the misled religious fanatics. The quality of Godly men is that they utilize this perishing and quick-ending life for eternal and everlasting purpose and sacrifice their lives for the divine threshold of Allah (s.w.t.).
طُوبي لَهُمْ وَ حُسْنُ مَآبٍ
“Happy are they and good is their (ultimate) destination”
I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences on the martyrdom of this great warrior and all his companions, especially Martyr Abu Mahdi Al-Mohandis, to all the freemen of the world and the noble nation of Iran and their honorable households. I beseech Allah (s.w.t.) for the support of Islam, and the dignity and glory of this dear nation in the shadow of the blessings of Imam Mahdi (may Allah hasten his reappearance).
