RNA – The tenth annual memorial to the 128 martyrs of the region of Darvazeh Rey-Qom with the title of “Gate of Communion” was held on the evening of June 12th at the Holy Shrine of Imamzadeh Shah Sayyed Ali in Qom.
Ayatollah Isa Qasim, a Bahraini Shi’ah leader who was a special guest at the ceremony, said that the martyrs are lights who enlighten the darkness and added, “Martyrs are for all times and places and aren’t just for a special corner of the world.”
He added that the reason for claiming that martyrs aren’t limited to a certain angle is that the martyr grants his blood for the religion of Islam. When the existence of this earth and time is valuable from the material and spiritual dimension, the religion of Islam is in fact dominating and the martyr was martyred for the religion of Islam and his blood was poured.
The Bahraini Shi’ah leader stated that the whole world is indebted to the martyrs and said, “The world is indebted to the martyrs of Iran, just as they are indebted to any martyr who falls to the ground anywhere in the world. Therefore, it’s obligatory to eliminate all the borders that are in front of the martyrs and to continue the path of the martyrs and the martyrs will join this school and this way.
His Eminence regarded Qom as a city which nurtures martyrs and considered this as a source of pride and said, “Being a martyr is a great honour because every drop of blood of a martyr plays a significant role in the revival of religion and our endurance and the entire path we are pursuing is indebted to the first drop of blood and the last drop of blood of the martyrs.”
In conclusion, Ayatollah Qasim pointed out, “I congratulate you dear people, not one, two or three times, but forever, that you and your country is the origin and source of the martyrs, and thank you for inviting me.”
