Self Sacrifice Martyr: Ali Munif Ashamr

Who is he?

He was born in Kuwait on the 14th of July 1976, his father named him Ali after the first of the 12 Imams, Imam Ali, the prince of believers (pbuh). Ali grew up in Kuwait, where he finished his intermediate studies and then joined the Great Prophet Hawza (religious school). He was an orphan; his mother had died in his early years.

Martyr Ali worked with his father for two years; he had several hobbies such as drawing, swimming, Karateh of which he obtained the black belt. He also had several attempt in writing and literature. His father had a very strong impact on him; he took him wherever he went, especially to the mosque.

In Battlefield:

Martyr Ali would always pray that he would attain martyrdom just like Imam Hussein (in the battle of Karbala) did. He was a true student of Karbala. He took part in many operations, the last of which was the Rub al-Tlateen in Odeisseh.

Ali prepared himself to carry out a self-sacrifice operation against Zionist occupations soldiers.

An "Israeli" patrol passed by, but Ali did not blow himself up, and when his group members asked him about the reason over the radio set, he answered: "I was performing my last payer, and that patrol will come back.

This was what actually happened. The patrol came back. Ali said his last words: "I am coming", and blew up a bomb loaded with shrapnel. The Zionist convoy was made up of several trucks and cars in which "Israeli" officials were present. Numerous injuries and deaths were recorded among the "Israelis".

On the 21st of March, 1996, one day after the operation, Ali's body parts were collected, enshrouded and buried near the operation spot.


In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful
Peace be upon you, my master Imam Hussein (as) and upon your household and friends.

My master [Hussein]: I gave you my pledge to move forward, carrying my blood for the sake of Allah and merging it with the soil of Mount Amel [South Lebanon] just like your blood merged with the soil of Holy Karbala.

{And We desired to show favor unto those who were oppressed in the earth, and to make them examples and to make them the inheritors.} (al-Qasas: 5)
Praise be to Allah, who made us part of the oppressed and not part of the arrogant, ungrateful, and harmful creatures.

Those who have been cursed by every prophet, and are losers in this world and in the Hereafter, as Allah said: {And certainly We sent before you messengers to their people, so they came to them with clear arguments, then We gave the punishment to those who were guilty; and helping the believers is ever incumbent on Us.} (ar-Room: 47)

Praise be to Allah for ordering us to be firm with them, so that their company doesn't corrupt us, as He said: {Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah's Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost.} (Mohammad: 4)

Also, praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds who made us compassionate with each other and firm with the unbelievers, as He said: {Muhammad is the messenger of Allah; and those who are with him are strong against Unbelievers, (but) compassionate amongst each other. Thou wilt see them bow and prostrate themselves (in prayer), seeking Grace from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure. On their faces are their marks, (being) the traces of their prostration.

This is their similitude in the Taurat; and their similitude in the Gospel is: like a seed which sends forth its blade, then makes it strong; it then becomes thick, and it stands on its own stem, (filling) the sowers with wonder and delight. As a result, it fills the Unbelievers with rage at them. Allah has promised those among them who believe and do righteous deeds forgiveness, and a great Reward.} (Al-Fath-29)

Know, O loved and sacred ones, that I am honored to write these words to you. This is the last call, which people got used to name a will. Since I am not in a position to write a will to men like you who I consider my teachers, I chose not to dub it a will but rather a reminder.

Know that our path of Jihad -especially at these critical times, when everyone has yielded to the enemy- is long, tough, and full with difficulties and tribulations; this is why it requires good and righteous spirituality, as well as patience.

We are sorry that many have withdrew and relied on others, and that is because of their materialistic endeavors.

The martyrs who have departed, have deposited their blood with us, and now they are lying in peace, and relying on the remaining multitude. Therefore, we must not let them down or waste their blood. We should rather continue the path that they had started, until liberating that last piece of our dear land, or until the last drop of our blood. To continue this divine duty, we must have patience and pray. It is indeed hard, except for the believers.
The patience, which we need to be stronger and continue on this path is that which the Prince of believers (as) detailed and clarified, as he said: ""Patience is of two kinds: patience over what hurts you, and patience against what you covet"" So, have patience and obey Allah by complying with the orders of the blessed leadership.

Finally: I entrust you to continue this path with devotion and seriousness until attaining one of the two virtues: either victory or martyrdom. Never stop, because if you do, this candle will extinguish and it would be hard to light it up again.

Allah has asked us to sell him ourselves and our wealth: {Allah hath bought from the believers their lives and their wealth because heaven will be theirs: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall slay and be slain...} (at-Tawba: 111). This would be a necessity if we are seeking heaven, for there is jihad with money and the jihad of the soul. We should move on these two paths. However, you should be aware that you will be exposed to a lot of trouble and tribulations, as these are God's examinations: {And We shall try you until We test those among you who strive their utmost and persevere in patience; and We shall try your record.} (al-Hijr: 45-48)

Remember that heaven is the destination after the long and bitter suffering, and that is the place where the patient ones will be rewarded for their patience, and so will the devout ones and the mujahedeen: {The righteous (will be) amid gardens and fountains (of clear-flowing water)* Enter ye here in peace and security* And We shall remove from their hearts any lurking sense of injury: (they will be) brothers (joyfully) facing each other on thrones (of dignity)* There, no sense of fatigue shall touch them, nor shall they (ever) be asked to leave.} (al-Hijr: 45-48)

Our last prayer is that praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, and I ask you not to forget me in your prayers.
Your servant Ali Ashmar


"Think not of those who are slain in God's way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord"

All work as one in their labor to meet God the Exalted
