Message of the President of the Sadra Islamic Philosophy Research Institute on the Martyrdom of Major General Haj Qasem Soleimani



In the early hours of Friday, January 3, 2020, the gallant Sirdar of Islam and Iran, Major General Haj Qasem Soleimani was martyred by the American terrorist government and left the Iranian nation and other justice-seeking nations of the world in mourning. The martyrdom of this great figure, who was a military genius and a hero of diplomacy and, similar to Imam Ali (a), had a kind heart, broke that hearts of millions of people. His love of country and his profound belief in Islam blazed from his existence; he was a true servant of God who lovingly hurried to His presence.

In the realm of jihad against world terrorism, particularly in Iraq and Syria, Major General Soleimani chose to spread the peace message of the Islamic revolution and the spirit of the Constitution and demonstrate the historical Iranian and Islamic love of wisdom, bravery, and dignity of the soul to the world. That is why the whole world clearly knew about him and his jihadi sacrifices along with his supreme ethics and pure intentions. He introduced the true identity of Islamic Iran to all nations and purified this Shi’ite shrine and center of pilgrims from all the slanders of the ill-natured American and Zionist conspirators. Today, his martyrdom confirms the truth of everything that he claimed and offered in practice and opens the door of blissful paradise to his soul.

I offer my heartfelt condolences on the occasion of the martyrdom of this honorable representative of the historical glory of Iran and pure Iranian nature and the true son of our motherland to Imam al-Zaman(a), Hujjat Allah Ibn al-Hassan al-Mahdi; the supreme Leader and the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Iran, the esteemed Iranian nation, and the family of Martyr Soleimani. May God punish and destroy the ignorant and savage enemies of Iran and Iranians.
