Martyr Ahmad Shah Massoud's Notes

19/3/1363

June/8/1984

Afterward, 4:30 am


Oh, Lord! I would be happy to die hundred times over if only it meant sparing my people from the horrors and atrocities the Russians have inflicted upon them. Oh Lord, creator of all, please have mercy on me. I have no desire other than to obligingly serve you and you know this for you have seen my heart’s intentions.


Oh, Lord! Who is both omniscient and the creator of all! Please help me answer, what are these people to do under this dismal situation. The burden, grief, and pressure are all becoming overwhelming. Please oh Lord either help me make these people realize the right path or bring this testimony you have used to examine me and my people to an end. My people can only endure so much pain and suffering.
