In the international webinar “Martyr Qasem Soleimani, role model for Islamic world in fight against arrogance, extremism”, the Mufti of Aleppo from Syria addressed the spirit of martyr Soleimani and stated, “Martyr Soleimani! You are with God because God says,‘وَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ الَّذِينَ قُتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ أَمْوَاتًا ۚ بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ يُرْزَقُونَ’ (Do not suppose those who were slain in the way of Allah to be dead; no, they are living and provided for near their Lord,) (Quran, 3: 169).”
“I do not address you as a dead person. Rather, I address you as someone who is alive, pure, and resilient. You were martyred while you were righteous, from the righteousness land and defended from it and religion and faith. O martyr, May God reward you the reward of the Mujahideen,” Sheikh Mahmoud Akam added.
“O martyr, I thank you on behalf of all the Muslims of Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. You did the jihad correctly and you won. Victory is for those who fight in the way of God. You did not invade a country and you did not start war and aggression. May God grant you the best rewards. All Muslims pray for you in their prayers. May God reward this resilient man. Because he fully understood the truth and protected and defended the land of the Muslims and the oppressed,” he also said.
“Martyr Soleimani was a thinker and a victor in the field. He is like a rain cloud whose raindrops are falling and useful. Haj Qasem became a value, and everyone learned patience from him,” added the Mufti of Aleppo, stating that Haj Qasem was a successful model of resistance, jihad and faith.
“Those who martyred General Soleimani are aggressors and oppressors. Qasem was martyred by the wicked and evil people. The character of the martyr can be recognized from his killer,” he emphasized.
“General Soleimani was a pious, religious, and devoted man. He followed the path of Imam Hussain (a.s.) and was martyred. He chose the path of honor and martyrdom and resisted. Haj Qasem’s goal was to defend Islam, and it can be said that he defended genuine Islam and true faith against those who distorted Islam. Haj Qasem was one of the original helpers of Islam and the resistance,” Mahmoud Akam said on the characteristics of Haj Qasem Soleimani.
“Haj Qasem was martyred for Quds and Palestine. He is alive in our minds, and by following in the footsteps of General Soleimani, we are determined to defend our values more than ever,” he concluded.
The international webinar “Martyr Qasem Soleimani, role model for Islamic world in fight against arrogance, extremism” was held on Sunday, January 2, 2022, from 6 to 8 pm, by the Secretariat of the World Conference “Countering Extremism and Takfiriism”, in cooperation with the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly with the presence of thinkers and scholars of the Islamic world.
