The Martyrs

Since the founding of this blessed country, the Saudis have been proud to commemorate the martyrs, in recognition of the sacrifices they have made for the homeland. They are the ones who have responded to the call to pay the ultimate sacrifice in defense of the homeland, their sanctities and national gains. In this regard and in recognition of their sacrifice, we aim to establish intergenerational ties and to remind the nation of the sacrifices of the martyrs of duty in order to learn the lessons and follow them in their blessed way. This file and other national initiatives do not meet the gratitude of a drop of the blood of our martyrs, but by doing so we take the sons of the nation and their awareness to our glorious history, to read the meanings of nationalism, Islam and true jihad; not the jihad claimed by the misguided groups. Such doing shall promote love of the homeland through our recall of the convoys of martyrs, for whom we pray Allah to be martyrs in the path charted by Allah and those who have been mentioned in the word of Allah: (Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah. Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration). The martyrs of the various military forces of our brave soldiers are renewable contributors and an inexhaustible wellspring, for whom we present this file. We pledge to Allah and then to our leadership, the families of our martyrs and all compatriots of our nation that we will not allow the fall of our unification flag (There is no God but Allah; Mohammed is the Messenger of Allah) for which our soldiers have sacrificed their blood in order to keep it high and flapping. We pray that Allah Almighty will allow them to dwell in the spacious heaven and embrace them with generous mercy.
