Imam Khomeini hailed sacrifices of Abu'l-Fadhl al-Abbas

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic issued special messages on the birthday anniversary of Abu'l-Fadhl Al-Abbas, the great martyr of Karbala.

Abu'l-Fadhl al-Abbas was called Abu'l-Fadhl (father -or owner- of virtue).. As a matter of fact, this name represents his personality completely, because he was the owner, leader, and source of virtue.

 In his life, he was so openhanded-he used to distribute his virtue and charity on everyone who directed to him. After martyrdom, he is the shelter and refuge of everyone who seeks his help.

The day is marked to take special care of “disabled of the holy defense”. The Iranian nation stood against eight-year long aggression by the then Iraq dictator Saddam and his colonial backers.

We bring phrases from Imam Khomeini’s historic messages in this regard as following:

I also congratulate the great Islam for having such combatants in the cause of truth who sacrifice everything in the cause of Islam and their Islamic country. They are an honor to not only Iran but also the future generations in the world.
