In the Name of Allah the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Surely we belong to Allah, and to Him we will return

Your eminence, dear Ayatollah Sayyed Ali al-Khamenei (may your life be prolonged)

Peace be upon you and Allah’s mercy and blessings

The news of the martyrdom of the great General Hajj Qasim Soleimani – may Allah have mercy upon him – has deeply aggrieved us.

Indeed the unparalleled role of (Soleimani) during the (several past) years of war against Daesh in Iraq cannot be forgotten.

I send my consolations over the loss of this dear martyr to your eminence, to his respected children and family, and to the honourable Iranian nation, and especially
the dear people of Kerman, and I ask Allah the Gracious to raise the (spiritual) status of (martyr Soleimani), and that He gift his family with outstanding patience and great (heavenly) rewards.

There is no power except that of Allah’s (power), the Most High, the Most Great

Sayyed Ali al-Husseini al-Sistani
