Will of Martyr Hossein Hamedani
Thank God that many blessings were bestowed on us and many thanks that He gave us life in the era of Khomeini, all our fathers and mothers longed for this era and did not see it, but we saw it.
The era of revival of dear Islam and the dignity of Muslim nations, the resistance of the Mujahideen of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the era of transformation and glory in the Islamic world, the era of the awakening of nations, the era of the decline of Taghut, the era of the collapse of arrogant powers and the era of self-return.
Thousands of thanks to God for his blessings, the blessing of living in the eight years of holy defense, living with the Mujahideen who were loved by God and have become guests of God.
Living alongside a nation that shone and did not succumb to all the conspiracies and heavy pressures of the enemies and was modeled, exemplified among the nations whose foremost is the fathers, mothers, wives and children of our precious martyrs.
What a greater honor than that our freedmen and our veterans and their resilient families were ashamed of patience and wrote a golden page on the history of this nation for 10 years in the camps of the Ba’ath party. Our veterans endured the argument that we must continue the resistance by enduring a lot of pain.
Thank God for the blessing of having the guardianship of the Commander of the Faithful Ali ibn Abi Talib (AS).
Can we not come from the great blessing that the merciful God has given us? Nemat Velayat-e-Faqih, our great Imam, that old Jamarani; The blessing of the successor behind it, Ali Zamanman, who continues the same path and caravan of the revolution, how cleverly and beautifully passes through all the necks and ambushes, but no, we should be more thankful, not in language, but in words like our martyrs.
My humble servant, Hossein Hamedani, the lazy student of the Holy Defense, I confess that I did not do my job well, and sometimes this rebellious breath came to me and deceived me, I was tempted, I moaned. I knocked, there was protest inside me, but God helped me, I realized, I regretted, I repented and I asked God for forgiveness and He accepted me, and lately I was very upset.
May God be pleased when he dies. God is merciful and I hope for his mercy, not for my own actions.
I ask all my friends and acquaintances for forgiveness, from the Imam and Mollaim of Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei (may God bless him and grant him peace) that I could not be a good soldier.
I was always ashamed of the families of martyrs, veterans and freedmen that I could not be a good servant; Make me lawful.
I thank my dear wife, who was a good companion, may God save you in the Hereafter, but I recommend that you be indebted to the revolution and the system as in the past, not a creditor. Be satisfied with patience in the face of shortcomings or low dowries, and be careful that the creators of space do not thank you, love for Velayat-e-Faqih and complete obedience to them is the happiness of this world and the hereafter.
I recommend my children and emphasize on preserving the values of dear Islam and the holy system of the Islamic Republic, which by preserving its values can be influential and a model. The superior hijab is obligatory on you. Your old father is satisfied with preserving the values. I ask God the Merciful for your happiness and good fortune.
I wish happiness to my sisters and brothers and their dear children, I had many good friends, each of whom and living with them will always remain in my mind and memories, and I am proud of this friendship.
I ask all acquaintances and friends to pray and fast for me one day if possible; If, God willing, I am still with you dear ones in that other world, I will compensate!
I have no debt and I do not owe anyone, but if someone owes me, pay the debt, I may have forgotten, in the hope of God’s mercy, say goodbye to you and seek forgiveness.
Sinful servant of Hossein Hamedani
