Leader sends message to funeral ceremony on unidentified martyrs in Iran
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei

Tehran, IRNA –Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has extended a message on the occasion of the burial ceremony of 250 unidentified wartime martyrs, which is being held nationwide today.

In his message, Leader sent regards to the martyrs and their families, asking God to bestow blessing on all of them.

As the ceremony is held coincidently with the martyrdom anniversary of Hazrat-e Fatemeh (AS) - daughter of Great Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) – betokens eternity of martyrs' names and memories, Ayatollah Khamenei said in his message, according to a report of Leader's office.

Worldwide, Shia Muslims hold annual mourning ceremonies on Hazrat Fatemeh’s tragic demise. The ceremonies aim to remember her whose characteristics are praised and followed as a role model for Muslim women.

In the meantime, the Funeral ceremony of 250 unidentified Iranian wartime martyrs, aka anonymous martyrs, was held across the country this morning.

The full text of the message is as follows:

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Peace be upon the unknown martyrs, unknown among the earth’s inhabitants but well-known in the heavens. They are self-sacrificing people who even after the passing of many long years since the moment of their martyrdom fill the country with the fragrance of spirituality and struggle on the path of God. They raise the flag of honor more than ever with their blood that was spilt on the path of Islam and the Qur’an.
The burial ceremony of these travelers who are returning home coinciding with the anniversary of the martyrdom of Lady Fatima Zahra (pbuh) brings the good news that their memory will last forever. It also betokens the coming of great blessings for the country of the Imam of our Time (may my soul be sacrificed for him), God willing.

I send my greetings to the pure spirits of these martyrs and also to the waiting eyes and hearts of their fathers, mothers and spouses. I pray for God's overflowing bounty and mercy for all of them.
