It was quite a surprise for me!

I had just reached the barracks and wanted to see Haj Ahmed. As I was entering, I was taken aback by what I saw. In that hot weather, with the sun at its peak, whilst all the troops were either sleeping or indoors, I saw Haj Ahmed next to the water tank and, with great enthusiasm, was washing everyone’s dishes.

I first thought that perhaps it was someone else, but as I got closer, I saw it was in fact Haj Ahmed. It was quite a surprise for me to see the commander of the 27 RasoolAllah brigade, the head of the strategy division, washing the dishes of his troops.

I quickly pulled out my camera and took a picture of him before he realises that I was watching him.

This was a story from the life of Shahid Ahmad Motawassiliyan. A humble and hardworking commander who dedicated his life in Allah’s service, and was martyred on His path.
