“And do not think that those who were killed in the path of God are dead, but live on”

 

“In the Name of the Lord of Utterance, the Mighty.”

“O Son of Justice!

Whither can a lover go but to the land of his beloved? And what seeker findeth rest away from his heart’s desire? To the true lover reunion is life, and separation is death. His breast is void of patience and his heart hath no peace. A myriad lives he would forsake to hasten to the abode of his beloved.”

We would like to thank the family and friends who through their participation at the funeral and memorial service or by sending telegrams [of condolence] have been a source of consolation and comfort to the family of Martyr Soldier Gholamreza A’laie.
