Imam Khamenei met with the family members of the Martyr Major General Soleimani

Hajj Qasem Soleimani had no fear of anyone or anything in performing his duty for the cause of God

Imam Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, visited the home of the esteemed and eminent General of Islam, Major General Hajj Qasem Soleimani, this evening (Friday). Showing sympathy with the family of the martyr, his Eminence expressed congratulations and condolences for the martyrdom of the sincere and distinguished fighter in the way of God.

Referring to Martyr Soleimani’s sincerity and self-sacrifice, Imam Khamenei stated, “Hajj Qasem had been exposed to martyrdom repeatedly, but in performing his duty and fighting for the cause of God, he had no fear of anyone or anything.”

The Leader of the Revolution regarded the fact that General Soleimani was martyred by the most villainous individuals, the American officials, and their pride in this crime to be a distinguishing feature of this brave fighter in the way of God and reminded, “His struggle was a great struggle, and God made his martyrdom a great martyrdom. This was a significant blessing for Hajj Qasem, who was deserving (of such a glorious martyrdom). Hajj Qasem had to be martyred in such a manner.”

While asking Allah to bestow patience and divine calm on the hearts of the martyr’s family members and the hearts of all of the Iranian people, His Eminence added, “Today, you saw how the people in different cities of the country came to the streets in great numbers and with exceptional devotion. You will also see his funeral (with great numbers). These blessings are before our eyes, so we understand the value of martyrdom. What a blessing for Hajj Qasem who achieved his dream. He cherished martyrdom, shed tears for it, and mourned for his martyred friends.”

Stressing that outward Jihad relies on ‘the biggest Jihad’, which is internal Jihad, Imam Khamenei addressed the daughter of the martyr saying, “All of the people are bereaved and grateful to your father. And this gratitude is due to the outstanding sincerity, which existed in him because the hearts are in the hands of God. Without sincerity, the people’s hearts wouldn’t have recognized him in this way. May God bestow His blessings on all of us and all the Iranian nation.”
