تَقُولُوا لِمَنْ يُقْتَلُ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ
أَمْوَاتٌ بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ وَلَكِنْ لا تَشْعُرُونَ
And say not of those who are slain in the way of
Allah: "They are dead." Nay, they are living,
though you perceive (it)
not. [Al-Qur'an 2.154]
May Allah accept his shahadat and grant him the
choicest place in Jannatul Firdaus.
