In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
“Among the Believers are men who have been true to their Covenant with Allah: of them some have completed their vow to (martyrdom) and some (still) wait: but they have never changed (their determination) in the least.” (Quran, 33, 23)
God the Almighty has spoken the truth.
Our beloved brother, the glorious commander Hajj Qasem Soleimani, achieved his highest goal and dearest hope by joining the noble procession of martyrs, becoming rightfully the Master of the Axis of Resistance’s martyrs.
We send our sincere congratulations and condolences to our Master and Imam (al-Mahdi), the Master of Time, may Almighty God accelerate his appearance, to His Eminence the Supreme Leader, Grand Ayatollah Sayed Khamenei, may God preserve him, to our honorable religious authorities and to our dear brothers and officials of the Islamic Republic of Iran, in particular the Chiefs of Staff of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and the great & resistant Iranian people, and in particular to each member of the noble and resistant family of Hajj Qasem, on the occasion of this martyrdom and the loss of this courageous and ingenious commander, an unequaled model, compassionate father of all the Resistants and mujahideen (fighters) of our region.
This glorious martyrdom is such an honour! I congratulate him and I am very happy for him for the high rank he achieved with this beautiful death, in the straight line of the school of (Imam) Hussein and (his sister) Zeinab, peace be upon them.
This is the way we see things and this is our position.
As for us who stayed after him, we will continue on his way and work day and night to achieve his goals. We will carry his standard in all arenas, on all battlefields and on all fronts. The Axis of Resistance’s victories will increase with the blessing of his pure blood, just as these victories have grown with his constant presence, persistence and tireless struggle. It will be the responsibility, the duty and the action of all the Resistance fighters and the mujahideen all over the world to take due revenge on his criminal murderers who are the worst men in this world.
With the grace of God, the American murderers will not be able to achieve any of their objectives with this enormous crime. On the contrary, all the objectives of Hajj Qasem will be achieved due to the greatness of his soul and his blood and by the action of his brothers, his children and his disciples within the Resistance, and the fighters of all peoples of our Community who reject humiliation and submission to the imperialists and tyrants.
Glory, honor and eminence to the great martyred commander, Hajj Qasem Soleimani, and to all the dear mujahideen who found martyrdom with him, in particular the great martyred leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, may Allah be pleased with them.
Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah Secretary General.
