Schoolbook: Rush to a Martyr's death
Our Beautiful Language for 6th grade - Jan. 1, 2010

 
PA schoolbook:
The Shahid (The Martyr)
“I shall carry my soul in my palm and toss it into the abyss of destruction...
And then, either life, gladdening friends, or death, enraging the enemies.
By your life! I see my death, but I hasten my steps towards it...
By your life! This is the death of men.
And who asks for a noble death - here it is…”
