Posted text: “Mother of Martyr (Shahid) #Mahmoud_Aliyan says, with restraint mixed with tears, that Mahmoud sought Shahada (i.e., Martyrdom for Allah) and has achieved it. He told her once: ‘Because I love you so much, mother, I will let you become a Martyr’s mother.’ [She said:] I waited 30 years until he came into the world, after artificial insemination. The separation from him is hard, but Shahada is his choice.”
