Schoolbook: Rush to a Martyr's death

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 a life that will gladden friends, or a death that will enrage 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…”
