Imam Khamenei

The memory of the martyrs always gives us hope and courage

Imam Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, issued a message on the occasion of Sacred Defense Week and the Day of Honoring Martyrs and Veterans. The following is the full text of his message.

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

The passage of time has not been able and will never be able to erase the honorable memory of the dear martyrs from the memory of the Iranian nation. This shining honor will always be decorated with the title of martyrdom and the memory of the martyrs. This historical reserve will always give our future generations hope, ambition and courage to take strong, firm steps toward lofty goals and not be afraid of the enmity of the slinking devils of the world. The alliance of justice and truth will gain major victories with this divine power and array, God willing.
