For the second consecutive Friday during the Friday sermon, the representative of the supreme religious authority; Sayed Ahmed Al-Safi cites a real story of one of the heroes of the volunteers of the popular mobilizations, the photograph Amjad Abd Salem, whose both feet were amputated during the liberation battles of Khalidiyah eastern Ramadi. And called to document those sacrifices and positions made by those heroes in the arena of confrontation against the terrorist and Takfiri gangs. The story as told by Sayed. Ahmed Al-Safi, was as follows:
Dear brethren, before I conclude, I would like to tell you a story: There a man named Amjad Abd Salem from Nasiriyah, he has asked the hand of a women; Zahra Safae Abd Latif from Diwaniyah, during five years he kept going to her family to ask for her hand, but as she was the only child of the family, she was dear to them and they were postponing the marriage by putting conditions to make him tired, but he never lost hope. After all these years, her family have accepted, but meanwhile he went to the battlefronts, and on the 31st of July, he was hit, in Khalidiyah, and he was then severely injured and lost both his feet, and he is now in the hospital. When he woke up he asked his family to apologize to this women. Once the news reached the family of the fiancée, instead of accepting their daughter to leave this man, they persisted on their marriage, and they even asked so the marriage takes place in the hospital, which they have done two days ago. These are humanitarian situations showing the bravery and sacrifice of each member of the two families. And we pray for this man and his family who has said that his two feet are a redemption for Iraq.
We can only pray for him and for this family so God bless them with wellness and recovery, making them a righteous family that will give an offspring that will defend the country and all its sanctities. And, the latest of our prayers is; praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, and Prayers and Allah's Peace be upon Mohammad and his pure and virtuous lineage.
