"Martyrdom is sweet," and "Martyr" is "groom" on way to "wedding" in song at Palestinian cultural festival
“He sacrificed his life for the land.
They wrapped him in white cloth with a flower.
He shouted and said: "How sweet is Martyrdom."
Meeting his Lord was his choice.
He adorned his land with the purest blood.
Tears for him are [tears of] joy. [His] mother makes sounds of joy.
[The Martyr] a groom and his wedding - Martyrdom and heroism.
Oh hero, rest in peace, do not worry.”
Note: According to Islamic belief, the Martyr (Shahid) marries 72 Dark-Eyed Virgins in Paradise.
