Narges’s beautiful story starts as she prepares to attend elementary school in her village of Zangi-Kola, Mazandaran Province, as a first-year student while accompanied by her mother’s tender eyes and the affectionate smiles of her grandfather and grandmother.
Despite being greatly delighted to participate in the first day of school celebrations and having made several friends, however, she could no longer wait. She and her mother rushed to the Martyrs’ Cemetery to pay their homage to Narges’ martyred father.
She enjoyed cuddling her beloved father’s tombstone. She could not find solace until she laid down on his grave and embraced it.
She attempted to imagine her father alive, hugging her after her first day of school in her school uniform.
According to Narges’ mother, “We requested through the army and the officials who came to our house to meet the Supreme Leader, the Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and General Soleimani. This was the only request we had.”
Finally, on February 21, 2019, Narges travelled to Babol to meet with Sardar Soleimani. “I have a request,” Narges said to General Soleimani. “Tell me,” Haj Qasem said. “I asked everyone to take me to visit Imam Khamenei,” Narges said. “How long have you been desiring to meet with Imam Khamenei?” Haj Qasem asked. “After my father’s martyrdom,” Narges added. Haj Qasem said, “Why do you want to meet with Imam Khamenei?” I feel that meeting him would soothe me,” she remarked. General Soleimani said, “I will definitely manage this meeting.”
Afterwards, Narges addressed her mother, saying “Mom, meeting Haj Qasem gave me the impression as if Papa had returned. I was overjoyed.
“Narges sat around the table when Haj Qasem joined her family. It was evident that she had a deep bond with Haj Qasem. Narges expressed hope that she would meet Haj Qasem again before her birthday.
At last, General Soleimani fulfilled his pledge, and Narges and her family ultimately met with Imam Khamenei. They anticipated meeting Haj Qasem, but he was unable to attend and instead sent Narges, saying, “I am sorry my dear daughter, I couldn’t make it to the meeting.”
Narges had already written a letter to Imam Khamenei, and they had urged Narges to read the letter herself. “Are you the one who slept with your father’s gravestone?” Imam Khamenei inquired. “Yes,” Narges answered. ” I had waited many years to hug and kiss Your Eminence, and I was adamant about visiting You before I reached the age of religious duty.”
Imam Khamenei responded with a pleasant smile: “You are now considered religiously obligated. Hence, I am unable to hold you in my arms. ”
Sadness overwhelmed Narges.
“I’m sorry I couldn’t see you till today,” Imam Khamenei stated. His Eminence presented Nargis with his ring, and mantle, and remarked, “Now that I can’t embrace you, these presents are from me to you.”
The following is an excerpt from Narges’ letter to Imam Khamenei:
“I am grateful to our valiant and beloved General Soleimani. I just learned that yesterday was your birthday, General Soleimani. Have a wonderful birthday. ”
Following the martyrdom of General Soleimani, Narges composed an eulogy in his honour, which read as follows:
There is no anguish in my heart heavier than Your martyrdom
Your martyrdom deepened the wrinkle on our foreheads
Having lost you, we have lost our Malek Ashtar
Upon your departure, Sayyid Ali is more sorrowful than us
O Lord, how much we adore You Qasem
This death was sweeter than anything for you
Your martyrdom drew me closer to the Lord
While Your blood will further disgrace our adversaries
Your assassin is a dirty vermin who will meet a horrible end
Your sacrifice shall make our nation braver than eagles
You were the ons of dawn battles and swords
You were awake in dunes till dawn beneath the moonlight
With the breath of God’s, the Holy Spirit made you into another Christ.
