Memories Notebook:
Martyr Mehdi Shah Abadi in the last days of life: If martyrdom can change our monotheistic system, if martyrdom can ruin the enemy, if martyrdom can announce our Islamic thought and vision, then we are ready for this martyrdom…

1) Despite of busy life that he had both before and after the revolution, he never left the mosque and believed that direct communication and face to face relation with people must be retained under any circumstances. He would listen to the words of the people in the Mosque and if he would feel that he can solve a problem of the people, he would try his best to do that. Even if the talks would be long and he would not have time to stay, he would give his house address to the people and he would ask them to come to his house for continuation of the discussion and finding a solution for the problems. He would attempt so much to solve problems and worries of the people. I remember one day he came and he said: “the roof of an old woman has a problem, but unfortunately right now I can not solve this problem. You should buy a gift for her so that she will know that I have not forgotten her.”?

2)) it might be perhaps surprising, but he would sleep only for two hours during day and night. The telephone needed to be connected all the times for him, so that he would be informed if someone needs his help. For example we wanted to eat foods together, but the telephone did not allow him. The telephones would ring continuously. Once I did pranks that he stay comfortable, but soon he realized the issue. I put one of the pillows on the telephone socket and I ask the others to sit near Mr. in a way that he does not notice that we are going to disconnect the telephone by unplugging its line, so that he can eat his food. But as soon as the children did this work, they wondered that why the telephone is not ringing. At first he thought that the telephone has been ruined, but soon he noticed what has happened!

2) We would pick the children and would go to the villages to look for Mr. Due to the anti-clergy advertising of the Shah’s regime, he would choose the places that were more difficult and needs more attentions and living condition in that village be difficult. Sometimes when we would enter the villages, we would see the lack of attention of the villager. Sometimes due to the result of propaganda of the regime against clergies, the villagers would oppose us even they did not wish to sell bread to us, so he would take bread and cheese with himself. Martyr Mehdi Shah Abadi in the villages with the same enthusiasm and interest and a frequency methods such as the prophet would try to guide the people. He would pay attention to the youths and teenagers of the villages so much. He would try to absorb the rural adolescents and youths with the curriculum, recreational, sporting and educational programs. These issues played an important role in familiarizing them with the Islamic issues. His special interest in this field was in a way that he was able to make the people aware about the realities. When he wanted to leave the village, the people would urge and insist much not to let him go. The behavior of the villagers in the last days of Shah Abadi’s presence in the village was too much different from the first days that he would go to the village. They would urge and beg in front of his car that he comes to their village once again. But he would give this village to a new clergy and he would go to a new village and guide the people.

3) for the last time he gave speech among the fighters of the Army 25 of Karbala. After giving speech and praying, the fighters went to him to greet him and express their ideas; to avoid congestion and pressure, those who were there asked them not do to this; but since he was a lover of clergies, he would not give up. Among the gathering of the authorities of the military headquarters, he said: That is not because they are interested to kiss a clergy; but also we are all interested to kiss them (kiss the clergies). If the fighters want our valueless head, I will give my own head to them and my head has no value when I see these great men!

4) When we were a schoolchild , in early morning before the sunrise , we would move toward Shir Pela, in a way that we would do your morning prayer in Shir Pela and then we would come back home and take our breakfasts and then we would go to school. In all of these trips, he was faster and quicker than us. Martyr Shah Abadi during the little time that he had he would try to familiarize the children with sports….and he would try so much not to waste the time. He would always express this sentence of Imam Sadegh that he had said: “health is a hidden blessing so when you are healthy, you forget it, but when you get sick, you remember it.”?

Martyr Shah Abadi based on the acknowledge of all of his relatives, he was a very active person who was tireless and prolific, so that even in many cases, the young people could not tolerate the hard work that he would do. Surely such a strong and active human would never waste his time and he would use the best of his lifetime moments. Indeed he had a strong body which had been achieved with exercise and sports.

\\\"Quoting by Hojatoleslam Saeed Shah Abadi\\\"

6) We would study together and I learnt some new lessons from him including \\\"mathematics\\\", \\\"Physics\\\" and \\\"English\\\". I accomplished my high school terms with him. He was so intelligent and wise. Sometimes when his classmates would say that the lessons are difficult, he would say that these lessons in the vision of a clergy are the same as the lessons of the first year of primary school. If we would get tired, he would encourage us for the persistence and perseverance.

\\\"Quoting by the late Ayatollah Sayed Mohammed Baqir Mousavi Hamedani\\\"

6) Martyr Shah Abadi would consider going to mosque and public prayer so important, in a way that during the country’s important meetings that would be held by the great characteristics of revolution, he would leave the meeting before Calling for Prayer and he would go to the mosque to attend the public prayer.
He would say: \\\"I appreciate the importance of the mosque and prayer that I would get off the side of the city and come here and to attend in the public prayer. He would say that the public prayer is a rifle pit and the clergy must preserve this rifle pit in spite of his fighting. No matter how much executive responsibilities have been given to him, he must attend the mosque and worship the God on time.
In fact a clergy must not forget his main responsibility which is guiding and directing people to be only an operational machine.

7) Martyr Ayatollah Shah Abadi at the beginning of his early entry to the Fasham village, when he asked the villagers to show the public mosque to him, he observes a ruined place, but he attempts so much to open this ruined mosque after two days. This mosque was not built so well, but he and his child would go to the mosque for a month. He would not give up going to the mosque, though the other villagers would not accompany him and would not go to the mosque. One night he refers to the strong champion of the village and he becomes his friend. Then he asks his wife to make some foods for them and after that he goes mountain climbing along with the youths of the village. Gradually the youths of the village become interested to the clergy and go to the mosque with him.

8) One of the things that about martyr Shah Abadi became eternal for me was that he never liked to waste anything. He would always buy the worst fruit from the fruit seller and he would say that no one likes to use this blessing of God. Now I cut this ruined part of the fruit and then eat the good section of the fruit, so what is wrong with it? He would peel off the fruits so nicely in a way that anyone who was watching him would enjoy it. I never forget the last visit with martyr Shah Abadi. He would help his wife in the house work too. He would never say that the work of the house is only for the wife, he would try to help his wife in all the activities. One day before he goes to the battlefields, I met him and it was my last visit with him. On that day the washing machine of his wife had been ruined and martyr Shah Abadi wanted to repair it. I felt that he is so tired and since he was busy repairing the washing machine, he could not drink or eat anything, so I provided some orange juice for him in a glass and I asked him to drink. At this time he looked at me so kindly that I could feel his kindness so greatly, still I’m looking for the same looking and kindness. Indeed he thanked me by his eyes. After that we prayed God together. I never forget the prayers that we did together. My son was the first grandchild of martyr Shah Abadi. He liked my son so much. He would miss martyr Shah Abadi so soon. He would play with Mohammad Ali. He would say that women must be educated. He would say that during Shah’s regime women have been under oppression. He believed that the women must develop so that the culture of the society will be changed basically. That is why he changed his house to a center for clergies, so we learnt Tahril Al-Vasfiyeh from him in this center.

9) Mr. Mohseni adds: In addition to cycling, the late Martyr Shah Abadi liked swimming so much too, so we would go to Amjadiyeh for swimming together (Shahid Shiroodi Stadium). Later when he became a clergy teacher, he did not want to go for swimming in front of people due to Islamic affairs; that is why we would go to Manzariyeh near the mountains on the Fridays. We had a good privacy in there and no one could see us. We would enter Manzariyeh and he would take off his spiritual uniform and he would hide them under the bushes and then we would go for swimming. He knew swimming so well. He would jump from the diving stage, or he would do 300 meter swimming. We would go to the north of Iran so much. We had a shop in the market. Many of the customers from different cities of north would refer to our shop and they would buy goods from our shop. Since we were known to them, we would go to their houses, and then we would go to the sea, the beaches that had a good privacy. I and Mr. Shah Abadi would jump in the water. He could swim so well. The local people were surprised to see that a clergy can swim so well.

10) In the last speech before his martyrdom which took place in headquarters of the Karbala Army 25 Division, he pointed to something that showed his passion for martyrdom and he said: If martyrdom can change our monotheistic system, if martyrdom can ruin the enemy, if martyrdom can announce our Islamic thought and vision, we are ready for this martyrdom…





Finally during the last time that Ayatollah visited the southern war zones, he was martyred in Majnoon Islands when he was giving speech among the fighters.

His martyrdom date was: April 26, 1984 which coincides with the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Musa Alkazm.
