Below is the lyrics of the song titled ‘Turned into Sky’s Moon’:
Turned into sky’s moon, Qassem Soleimani
Glow of his face illuminated the sky
Conqueror of battlefield in war against the enemy
Man of hard days & stormy abysses
Enemy of the oppressor & friend of the oppressed
All of his actions based on Quranic verses
Part of Iran’s body, part of Islam’s body
Iranian hero, role model of being Muslim
He was an honor of the nation, standing tall like cypress
Mountain of resistance, a brave-heart from Kerman
Alas his smiling face, alas his compassionate heart
His manly eyebrows, raining eyes
Remembering his hair, I feel deeply distressed
You’re the hope for the future, eternally alive
A shining sun in a dark world
Like Malik al-Ashtar, a soldier of Imam Ali (AS)
Loyal companion of the master from Khorasan (Imam Reza (AS))
Although your wretched enemy wounded you
He will not win anything but regret
You’re a flowing reality, like awakening stream
You’ll eternally stay in hearts forever
Waves in seas, winds in deserts
Spread your name explicitly & implicitly
They sing in harmony, in rainy weather
General Soleimani, who was the commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), was assassinated along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), as well as eight others during a US drone strike at Baghdad’s international airport on January 3, 2020.
