Memories of War from Everywhere:
Navideshahed: “Ok mom, it is clear; I was the one who wore the shoes of Ali”?, Hussein said immediately.

“I myself dreamed that suddenly the ground opened its hug and told me let me to hug you,”? he said after that.

I was the guest of martyrs’ house of the alley ‘Khaneh Angha Martyrs’. It was the neighborhood of Imam Zadeh Masoom, Ghazvin St after the Tapan Intersection, Khaneh Angha Martyrs Alley. A son of the family had been martyred during the Islamic Revolution. The other son has been martyred during the military operation ‘Kheibar’. The elder son of the family was martyred when he took part in a commission done by the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps. In fact he was a member of the corps.

His father who had the job of battery industry, he passed away and the mother was left alone. On the day that we made an appointment with this family, she had a little surgery in her left hand and it seemed that she had come from the hospital just a few hours ago. Since we were worried for her resting program after surgery, we said that we can cancel the interview if she is not relaxed with it, but she did not accept and she cheerfully accepted our interview.

Mah Nazar Ayuz Mohammadi, the mother of martyrs Hussein, Mohammad Reza and Ali Khaneh Agha is a lady with white hair and strong heart and we listened to her words for a few hours. Her age, problems of life, long period of time that has been passed from the martyrdom of her sons…has made remembering the memories so difficult for her. Many of the events should be reminded to her in order to express them. One of her sons had come there in order to help her and his name was Hassan Khaneh Angha, the brother of the abovementioned martyrs. Of course now two sons from the 5 sons have been left! So the following interview is a golden page from the memories of this respectful mother of martyrs:

Reporter: Please say about the martyrdom of your first son ‘Hussein’?

The mother of martyrs: On that day we had some guests. In the morning when Hussein got ready to go to his workplace, the guests teased him and they asked him to give his mother to ride. He said: “Since it is the mother of treasure house, he can not let others to ride it! Still he had not drunk the tea and he moved. It was almost 7:00 or 8:00 o’clock in the morning that they knocked on the door. I observed that a tall man who had worn boots had stood behind the door. He said: if it is possible for you, come to the police station, Hussein has made an accident. I had a very bad health condition at that time. I did not know where I should go! We moved with my son Mehdi. In the police station, they informed us that he has been injured a little and they asked me to sign the permission letter. I said that I must initially see Hussein and then I will sign it. They told me that Hussein has been hospitalized in Loghmal Al-Dowleh hospital. I don’t really remember how much we walked. I told Mehdi to go to his father’s shop and to inform him that Hussein has made an accident. His father’s job was Vehicle Oil Change at the time.

We looked for him in the hospital so much, but Hussein was not there. Ali arrived there, he said: “Mother, Hussein is in the downside floor. I observed that all the Hussein’s friends had come there along with their mothers, but I did not see Hussein. I shouted: “Where is Hussein?”? After a few minutes, I observed that they brought a dead body…Ali’s shoes had not been taken off yet… it was exactly as I had seen him in my dream…After that I did not notice what happened.

The brother of martyrs continued: “In 1981, some of the guards would wear the Korean overcoats and they usually had Honda Motorcycles. The anti-revolutionary militants had announced that they would assassinate all the persons who had worn Korean overcoats and those who had Honda Motorcycles. Hussein was martyred with the same appearance when he was going to his workplace.

Reporter: You said that your dream came true! What was your dream?

The mother of martyrs: Even when we go to the fruit shop, we separate the better fruits, I should say that God separates better children of the family. Two nights before the martyrdom of Hussein, I dreamed that they brought a dead body into my house and then they took it. The dead body that was inside the coffin had worn the shoes of Ali. In the morning when I expressed my dream to my children, I said that I did not who was that person. After that Hussein said immediately: “Oh mom, it is clear; I was the one who wore the shoes of Ali.”?

After that he said: “I myself dreamed that suddenly the ground opened it hug and told me let me to hug you!”?

Reporter: How did you get confident that the story of accident was a faked story?

The brother of martyrs: When Mr. Hussein left the house in the morning, in the river of previous street ‘martyr Sobhani’ a car moved towards him with a high speed and hit Hussein to the cement blocks which had been put near the house at the time! At first we thought that he has died as a result of an accident, but after the terror of one of the reliable persons of our neighborhood whose name was martyr Shahriyari who was a carpet seller and the arrest of his attacker, he confessed that he had confessed that he had assassinated Hussein Khaneh Angha as well! It was 1982. Now the grave of Hussein is near the grave of martyr Plark.

Reporter: When Mohammad Reza was martyred?

The brother of martyr: Mohammad Reza was 23 years old when he took part in the military operation ‘Kheibar’ in 1983. During this operation the bodies of many of the martyrs were not returned back and Mohammad Reza was one of these martyrs. Mohammad Reza in his testament had mentioned that if his body did not return, it should be buried near the grave of Hussein and of course in his testament he had said: “If my body does not return, my spirit will be happier and I ask God such destiny to occur for me.”? When the enemy occupied the war zone, it poured and put the bodies of martyrs in Hoor. Now have made a gravestone for him in the piece 26 of the cemetery and we hope that his body to return too.

Reporter: Which one of your sons was more playful?

The mother of martyrs: All three martyrs were playful, but they had very good behaviors; my youngest son ‘Mehdi’ when he was a little kid and move with his hands and feet, he would bother the other children and he would not let them to write their homework. Once Mohammad Reza came to me and he said: “Mom please come here.”? I observed that he had dangled Mehdi to the clothes hanger. I said: “Mohammad Reza, why have you done it? He said: Mom, if I hit him, he will cry and then you will be sad, he does not allow us to study, so we have to dangle him!”?

Reporter: Do you think that Mohammad Reza will return?

The mother of martyrs: Once one of my friends said that there is prayer that If I read it, he will return. We read the prayer together and we slept. I dreamed that Mohammad had returned! I said: “My dear son, where were you?”? he said: “I was here, I had not gone anywhere.”? After that he said: “Mom, when you pray for me, please pray for my friends as well. We are three persons!”?

The brother of martyrs: When Mohammad was in the military service; usually his return to him was not specified and determined; Most of the times he would return home during midnights; so at that time the sound of bell and door had a special meaning for the mother. This procedure was continued after the martyrdom of Mohammad and if someone would come home late night, the mother would go to the door so quickly and in some cases without any veil.

Once one of the relatives who had come to Tehran from Abhar in order to go to the military service, he rang the bell of our house at 2:00 o’clock midnight. We were sleep, the mother from the behind of the window said: “Who is that?”? he said: “I’m Mohammad! Mother ran towards the door and before arriving to the door, she fell down on the ground for twenty times.”?

Reporter: Have you dreamed something interesting about martyrs?

The mother of martyrs: Once I dreamed that Mohammad has returned with the uniform of Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps. He had a gift and some eggs in his hand. He gave them to me and he said: “Happy Mother’s Day”?.

Before, on Thursday night, two buses would go to the public cemetery from the street close to our alley. Now that most of the martyr’s mothers have passed away, only one bus goes there every two weeks, of course now I don’t have the power of going except when my children come with me. Once I was left from the bus in the public cemetery! The cars would not go towards hour house and no one picked me in his car. The night was coming and it air was being dark and I did not know what to do. I returned and went near the grave of Hussein and I picked a candle from the side graves and I put it on Hussein’s grave in order to shine the place. I said: Hussein, I sit here, if you got a car for me, I will go, and otherwise I will stay here the whole night! After a few minutes a young couple who had recently got married came there and they took me to my house.

Reporter: Have you ever seen a sign or something that shows the presence of martyrs in your life?

The mother of martyrs: Martyr Mohammad Reza had an agate ring and he had worn it for many years. The ring had been broken in the military practices. When Mohammad Reza was being dispatched to the battlefields in 1983, he gave the ring to me and he recommended that I preserve it so well so that he will repair it when he returns. Mohammad Reza’s body was lost during the military operation ‘Kheibar’ and after that this ring was my friend and companion, eventually at a night in March 2000, my spouse dreamed about him. He had come to the dream of my husband along with two of his friends.

He told me: Mohammad Reza had brought his friends to our house for entertainment and after entertainment and talking with his friends, when they were getting out of the house, the friends of martyr pointed to me and said: “Now that we have come here, at least awaken your father so that he can see you.”? Mohammad Reza said: “No, since he has so much interest to me among the brothers, if I awaken him, he won’t allow me to return. So we should go as soon as he is not awakened, I have put a relic of myself for him.”?

When we were awakened, we did not talk about someone about this issue. But I really looked for the relic that the martyr had put for me. After a week, it was the 7th day of Muharram. When my husband had looked for the ring, he noticed that the broken ring had been fixed! He immediately called me and we saw that the ring had been repaired and it was absolutely fine.”?


I would put the ring in the prayer clothe. After several years when I returned from Karbala trip, I noticed that the ring is fit for my ring and that it is not broken anymore! I told the father of the children, you can see that the ring of Mohammad Reza has been repaired. He said: A few nights before, I dreamed about the ring, Mohammad Reza and his friends had come to our house. That ring was a sign of his presence.


The brother of martyrs: We showed the ring and Tasbih to the Foundation of Martyrs and Veterans Affairs. The clerics saw it as well and they confirmed that this ring has not been soldered at all and if it has been done, it has not been done on this Tasbih.

Reporter: Where is the ring now?

The brother of martyrs: The ring is preserved in the martyrs Museum. The father would go to the martyrs Museum every Thursday nights in order to see the ring.

Mr. Hassan, the brother of martyrs says: “We all the children of the family have left this neighborhood, but we are worried about the mother. She does not satisfy her old house. She says, if I go somewhere else, the martyred children won’t have my address, they won’t be able to find me! If I stay here, if I don’t see them during the days, at least they come to my dreams during nights and they meet me so much! Therefore we have to choose our houses so close to the house of our mother.”?

The End
