Nature, in the path of perfection and renewal, reached spring and immersed humans in hope and joy. Thinkers who close their eyes to the material world and open their eyes to The Beloved; look at the truth of existence and empties the soul of thinking about the body to be worthy of divine gift, and see the world as an opportunity for being an approach to The Creator.

Saadi:

I am merry with the one with whom the world is merry

I am in love with the whole universe 'cause the whole universe is from Him

These are the ones who see the renewal, not in appearances but the freshness of thoughts and ideas, and seek the mystery of life in such modernity.

Mawlawī (Rumi):

By one thought that comes into the mind,

A hundred worlds are overturned in a single moment

Accordingly, being caught in the repetition and stillness of thoughts is not compatible with the truth of creation and evolution. Undoubtedly, the thought and the look that do not lead humans to move and change, will not lead to the goal.

Mawlawī (Rumi):

The right thought is that which opens a way,

The right way is that on which a spiritual king advance

Now, the coincidence of Sha'ban and Ramadan months with the beginning of the New Year has gathered the spring of body and soul, matter and meaning; so, we should take full advantage of this opportunity.

Hafiz:

 

Month of Sha'aban put not down the jug of wine

Till the end of Ramadan you'll miss this Holy Grail

How fortunate are those who teach themselves to think and determine their destiny on these days of the year with benevolence

Hope we are all among them.

Two Memories from the Book: This Man has No End

We had a brother named Zandi, he was a mechanical engineer, and he was in charge of our equipment. In the middle of the Dawn 8 operation, I heard that his son had an accident the day before and was killed. They kept this child until the father came, to assign responsibility to the driver who hit him, and to bury the child. I thought how to convince our brother to come back without him noticing.

The Importance of Building Road in the War

Destiny of the operations were determined by the roads that Jahad [Sazandegi] (Jihad of Construction) would build in the up and downs of the region’s mountains; roads in which delivering troops, ammunition, supplies, and on the way back, delivering the wounded and martyrs in a 30 km distance determined consolidation of heights that were seized by Basij forces. Iraq had concentrated most of its power in the region on the Galan heights.

Bow tie

When I was studying in Farhanaz Pahlavi middle School at the end of Hajbashi Street, I spent bitter days. At school, I was dressed differently because of my coat and long scarf. That is why I was always alone and had no friends. On the other hand, the teachers did not care about me and treated me badly. They put me at the end of the class and they did not call my name for class questions;
