"You have been invited to the court and to the feast of God, and He sees you worthy of going to Him and has determined for you obligations of which you are worthy. You girls must find a beautiful future for yourselves, and must begin planning your lives from now on in order to raise [the next generation] to be like the martyr Soleimani. [If] you want to be like Soleimani, raise [the next generation to be] like Soleimani."
