Memory of Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi about the Exceptional Sincerity of Gen. Soleimani

This morning, at the beginning of the first session of his Kharij al-fiqh class in A’zam mosque of Qom, Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi expressed his gratitude to God for the opportunity of holding the class again and said, “I am thankful to God for the opportunity He gave us to be at your service and follow the fiqh of the Ahl al-Bayt (a).”

He then continued and praised the outstanding personality of Lieutenant General Martyr Haj Qasem Soleimani and said, “People usually speak about his bravery. Today, I want to give a short account of his sincerity.”

He mentioned a memory of martyr Haj Qasem Soleimani, “General Soleimani came to visit us two or three years ago. At the end of our conversation, he told people to go out of the room. When his companions went out of the room, he took out his shroud and asked me to sign it.”

His excellency added, “this shows that martyr Soleimani was thinking about going since that time and secondly, he did not want people to know that he had brought that shroud. Such a sincerity is really notable and praiseworthy.”

At the end, Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi praised the endeavors of Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky, the leader of Nigerian Shia and said, “through effective preaching, he has been able to make a considerable population familiar with the school of the Ahl al-Bayt (a) and reviving teachings of Islam.”
