RNA – Grand Ayatollah Hoseyn Nouri-Hamadani met with the director general and members of the Martyrs Foundation of Qom province and said, “Today, it must be known that keeping the memory of the martyrs alive is very important.”
Noting that keeping the memory of the martyrs alive will lead to the revival of the spirit of sacrifice and martyrdom, the revered source of emulation stated, “All of Iran’s dignity and authority is due to the sacrifices of its great veterans and martyrs.”

Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani emphasized that according to the narrations, jihad was always emphasized by the Prophet Muhammad and the Infallibles and added, “God has given the ummah dignity as a result of jihad. Every good thing has degrees and levels but one must know that above all good is being martyred on the path of God.”
Referring to the spirit of sacrifice and jihad among the people nation of Iran, His Eminence stated, “Wherever in the world where there is a war is taking place, people with worldly motives go to the frontlines but the martyrs of Islamic Iran went to jihad with love, enthusiasm and devotion for Wilayat al-Faqih [Guardianship of the Jurisprudent].”
He emphasized the necessity of explaining the wills of the martyrs for the people and stated, “Today, the enemies are trying to amplify a sense of regret and disappointment among the people towards the martyrs in order to disturb the country. Therefore, we must try through cultural works to stand against the enemies and preserve the dignity of Islam.”
Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani stressed that jihad is the criterion for determining the true believer from one who isn’t a true believer, “Today, despite the fact that there is no other hard battlefront, those who desire to be presence on the frontlines are real Muslims and those who don’t desire to be present on the frontlines, they are hypocrites.”
