Youth: Prayers upon our Prophet Muhammad. The children of freedom desire martyrdom for the sake of Allah.

Assalam Alykum, brother.

Child: Alykum Assalam.

Youth: I see that you are digging something. What are you digging there?

Child: I'm digging my own grave. Allah willing, I will become a martyr.
