In a solemn address, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah thanked supporters for their condolences on his mother’s passing and condemned the recent massacre in Gaza, urging action against the brutality of the Israeli forces.

During a speech at the Sayyed Al-Shuhada Complex in Al-Ruwais on Tuesday at the three-day commemoration of his mother, Sayyed Nasrallah expressed his gratitude to all those who offered condolences on the passing of his mother, Nahdia Hashem Safieddine.

Addressing those mourning his mother’s passing at the mourning places set by Hezbollah since her demise, “I welcome your presence, thank you for your condolences, and ask Allah to reward you with goodness in this world and the hereafter.” He apologized for not being able to be present in person due to security reasons.

“I apologize for the circumstances that everyone is aware of, and I thank all those who attended at the mourning ceremonies.

You all understand my situation, and I wish I could be in the first row to share your condolences.”

“I apologize for not being able to be with you in person and for not answering phone calls.

Your support and actions mean a great deal to us,” he added.

Sayyed Nasrallah thanked all the mourners and consolers from various countries, including Lebanon, Iraq, Palestine, Iran, Syria, Pakistan, Turkey, Yemen, Bahrain, Kuwait, Egypt, Tunisia, Mauritania, many African countries, Jordan, Djibouti, and the Lebanese communities abroad.

He also thanked the leadership of Hezbollah and the Amal Movement for their support and the honorable families of the martyrs who sent condolence messages.

“I express my heartfelt gratitude to my brothers in the leadership of Hezbollah and the Amal Movement for their early presence to offer condolences alongside my father and for standing for hours to accept condolences,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

Who Is Sayyed Nasrallah's Mom? Describing his mother, Sayyed Nasrallah said she was a woman of faith and integrity, prioritizing her family's well-being.

Despite living in modest conditions, she was content and selfless, always helping her husband and showing patience and respect towards her parents.

“The late Nahdia Hashem Safi Al-Din, born to two Hashemite parents, was a devout, pure, and gentle woman.

She remained uninvolved in the affairs of others, never offended anyone, and harbored no hatred,” he said, adding: “Her family was her top priority, ensuring their upbringing and protection.

She was a contented woman who never complained about clothing, housing, or food, and she spent most of her life in a single room.” “She actively supported my father in shouldering responsibilities, demonstrating patience and a commitment to righteousness, particularly in her dealings with her parents,” his eminence pointed out.

“Martyr Hadi was her first grandson whom she loved dearly, and he reciprocated that love, his martyrdom profoundly impacted her.” Throughout her life, Sayyed Nasrallah recalled, “my mother praised Allah in times of both health and sickness.

When asked about her well-being, she would respond with gratitude, saying that she was doing well, thanks to Allah.” Humble-Rich Neighborhood Sayyed Nasrallah reminisced about their humble neighborhood, the Sharshbouk neighborhood, which was diverse and harmonious, despite the lack of religious institutions.

“We were born in a humble neighborhood known as the Sharshbouk neighborhood, a part of the Karantina area.

Despite the absence of a mosque, scholar, or religious activities in our vicinity, the blessings of faith and religiosity from our parents guided us,” the Secretary General indicated.

He emphasized their allegiance to the teachings of Imam Sayyed Musa al-Sadr.

“From the outset, we aligned ourselves with the teachings of Imam Sayyed Mousa al-Sadr and his movement, a commitment that persists whether we are affiliated with Hezbollah or the Amal movement, myself and my brothers included.” “While not large, our neighborhood was diverse, home to Lebanese, Palestinians, Kurds, Armenians, and Maslakh Arabs, all of whom shared a common experience of poverty.

Despite our circumstances, there existed a sense of love, peace, and solidarity among us all,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

“We aspire to witness today the same unity and harmony that characterized life in the Sharshbouk neighborhood; the core issue in Lebanon, in our view, lies in the actions of certain political leaders who, instead of fostering unity, incite division and conflict,” he added.

Rafah Massacre Stripped You Away! Regarding the recent massacre in Rafah, Sayyed Nasrallah condemned the brutality of the Israeli forces, stating that such actions reveal the true nature of the occupation.

“The massacre in Rafah stands as a stark confirmation of the enemy’s brutality, treachery, and betrayal.

In our perspective, their actions mirror those of historical killers of prophets, as they mercilessly bomb tents and mutilate the bodies of children.” “The blood that was shed in Rafah should stir the conscience of all those who have remained silent until now,” Sayyed Nasrallah stated.

He urged the international community to act against these atrocities and not to remain silent.

“The massacre stripped away all the false pretenses of legality and adherence to international laws that the occupation had cloaked itself in,” he said, adding: “To those who seek normalization, we ask: with whom do you seek to normalize? With these treacherous monsters whose crimes know no bounds?”

'A few days ago,' Sayyed Nasrallah pointed, 'the International Court of Justice called for an end to the aggression, yet the response was met with violent raids.' “We must condemn these horrific massacres and strive to be a catalyst for ending the war and aggression against the people of Gaza,” his eminence urged.

“These massacres must serve as a stark example for us and for those who rely on the international community and international laws to protect Lebanon,” Hezbollah’s leader indicated.

“To all the ignorant: The body parts of Gaza’s children scream in your ears, their blood staining your faces, and their severed heads address you.

Strength, unity, resistance, martyrs and sacrifices will protect you; submission and surrender at the door of the helpless international community will not do so.” Sayyed Nasrallah concluded by reaffirming his commitment to the resistance and the liberation of the land, stating that the sacrifices made will ultimately lead to the defeat of the oppressors.

“We are in the month of liberation, May, when we reclaimed our land through sacrifices and blood, the resistance has offered thousands of martyrs in this endeavor,” he said, concluding: “The blood that was shed in Rafah will hasten the defeat and demise of this Nazi-like and brutal entity, for which we see no future in our region.”
