On March 17, 2023, Palestine TV aired a Friday sermon delivered by Dr. Nasser Al-Qaram, the Head of the Shari'a Court of Appeals in Nablus, at the Fatima Al-Zahraa Mosque in Ramallah. Dr. Al-Qaram described the rewards that martyrs receive according to Islamic tradition. He said that all the martyr's sins are forgiven the moment the first drop of his blood falls on the ground, that martyrs are spared the torments of the grave, that they are saved from the great horror of Judgement Day, that they receive black-eyed virgins in Paradise, that they can plead on behalf of their family members, that they are adorned with "the garment of faith", that they receive a crown of honor, and that they roam Paradise as green birds that nestle in chandeliers hanging from Allah's throne. He elaborated that Allah personally attends to the martyrs' desires and personally informs their family of the honor bestowed upon them in the afterlife. In addition, Dr. Al-Qaram said that the martyrs' only wish in Paradise is to come back to life so that they can be killed for Allah's sake once again.

In Paradise, The Martyr Is Married To Black-Eyed Virgins, Pleads On Behalf Of His Relatives, "Is Adorned In The Garment Of Faith, And The Crown Of Honor Is Placed Upon His Head"
Nasser Al-Qaram: "Listen to the rewards bestowed upon our righteous martyrs. The martyr's first reward is that his sins are forgiven with the very first drop of his blood. The moment that the first drop of his blood falls on the ground, all his sins are forgiven.
SUPPORT OUR WORK
"Blessed be the martyrs in this world and in the Hereafter. Another reward is that the martyr is spared the torments of the grave. He is also safe from the great horror on Judgement Day, as Allah said [in the Quran]: 'They will be safe from the terror of that day.' Furthermore, he is married to black-eyed virgins and he pleads on behalf of his family and relatives. He is adorned with the garment of faith, and the crown of honor is placed on his head. All this is given to the martyrs when they meet Allah.
"The souls of martyrs – and this is unique to them – are in the bodies of green birds. They roam in Paradise, eat its fruits, drink from its rivers, and in the evening, they nestle in chandeliers hanging from Allah's throne.
Martyrs Beg Allah In Paradise: "Return Our Souls To Our Bodies... [So We Can] Be Killed For Your Sake Again"
"This is what happens with martyrs in the Hereafter. Our Lord checks on them and inquires about their condition and whether they wish or need anything. He checks that everything is alright with the souls of the martyrs when they come to nestle in His chandeliers that are hanging from His throne.
"The martyrs say: 'Our Lord, with all this honor and well-being, we do not want anything more.' But when Allah insists and asks them again about what they wish or need for, they say: 'Oh Lord, we ask that You return our souls to our bodies, so we can return to the world and be killed for Your sake again.' But Allah decreed that they would never return to this world. When the martyrs ask Allah: 'Who will inform our families and our beloved ones about the honor that is bestowed upon us and our well-being?' Allah says: 'I will do that.'"
