Imam Khamenei’s Message on the Anniversary of the Birth of Hazrat Abbas (pbuh) and Disabled Veterans’ Day:
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
I would like to congratulate the dear disabled war veterans of the country on the anniversary of the birth of Hazrat Abulfadl al-Abbas (peace be upon him), who is forever honored due to his bearing the flag of Karbala. The coinciding of this day with the anniversary of his birth is a source of honor for disabled war veterans. You disabled war veterans are self-sacrificing fighters and living martyrs. Your eyes and hearts will be illumined with divine rewards, God willing. I ask Allah, the Exalted, to bestow health, dignity, steadfastness and well-being on you and your patient family members whose services are some of the best of good deeds.
Sayyid Ali Khamenei
