Original Persian book information
Author: Qasem Soleimani
Title: Az chizi nemitarsidam: zendegi-nameh-ye khodnevesht-e qāsem soleimāni, 1335 ta 1357
Editor: Mohammad Mehdi Bagheri
Publisher: Tehran: Qasem Soleimani Library, 2021

译者序

You are holding in your hands an English translation of the first-ever book published by the Haj Qasem Library. It is an autobiography of Qasem Soleimani, former commander of the Qods Force; an elite branch of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Of course, if you are reading this, then you are likely already familiar with this man and his life’s work.

This autobiography is an incomplete one, to be sure. The author began writing the book late in his life, and was assassinated before it could be completed. Thus, the book only covers his early life: his childhood in rural Kerman, his migration to the city as a teenager in search of work, and his involvement in the protest movement against the Pahlavi monarchy.

Soleimani is viewed primarily as a military leader; by his lovers and haters alike. However, this work is not a story of the life of General Qasem Soleimani – the commander, the strategist, and America’s public enemy no. 1 – so much as it is an account of the exceedingly simple and modest lifestyle of rural (and more specifically, tribal) Iran prior to the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

What we see through the lens of Soleimani’s early life is, in some ways, not too far removed from what the novelist Jalal Al-e Ahmad said of rural Iran: that ‘half of its fifty thousand villages still do not know what a match is.’ Indeed, rural Iran was – by and large – a realm that had been untouched by time; regally indolent to the rapid changes that had been taking place in the world (and, indeed, within Iran itself).

Thus, this autobiography can be described as an origin story: a first-hand look into the humble beginnings of a man who would end up shaking the world to its core.

It may be beneficial to mention a few technical points about this translation. Transliteration of Persian words has been done according to the guidelines defined by the Association for Iranian Studies. Exceptions are made for the names of people and places, where instead the most prevalent English spellings are used (e.g. Kerman rather than Kermān).

The Persian language is not bereft of honorifics, and the author uses them on more than a few occasions in this book. English equivalents are used where possible; however, where it became necessary to use the original Persian honorifics, please refer to the footnotes for additional information.

The author writes in a stream of consciousness style. This style has been preserved as best as it could; however, some of the non-sequiturs (namely, those which do not translate well into English) have been ironed out in the interest of preserving the narrative flow.

As for the original manuscript, there were some challenges the Haj Qasem Library faced in transcribing and publishing it. The author’s handwriting was unique, and thus the publisher enlisted the author’s relatives to help identify certain letters and words. In spite of their best efforts, 25 words in the text were not identified with absolute certainty, and thus the publisher used their best estimation as to what these words were.

The parenthetical phrases you see throughout the book are all written by the author himself, with the only exception being those that contain translations of Persian words. The footnotes, however, are all by the translator, and mostly serve to offer contextual information that can hopefully serve to improve the reader’s understanding.

In the interest of thoroughness, the original introduction to the book has also been translated. This introduction was written by none other than the author’s daughter, Zeinab Soleimani, who – for all intents and purposes – has inherited her father’s will.

    soleimani, xi, putin, men of humble beginnings have a sense of humility, that allows the development of their genius. this is exactly why our senator son, elites in the ruling class, stand no chance against them.

  2. A123 说: • 您的网站

    Failure to fear God is an unrecoverable sin.

    No doubt he will receive 72 raisins on his way to suffer eternal torment for his mass murders.

    和平😇

    Soleimani is waiting for Trump and his neocons for reciprocity

    OK, Shlomo.

    You kikes are such graceless parasitic cunts; little wonder every society you infest gets fed up and kicks your primitive tribal asses to the kerb eventually.

    so, another “The Motorcycle Diaries” by some other monster who made everyone’s life worse.

    So you’re mocking the absurd Muslim belief about being rewarded with 72 virgins in heaven. Fair enough. But hopefully your religion doesn’t have absurd ideas either. What religion would that be?

    What reward would a just God give to the tens of millions of Americans who cheered for the mass murder of people who were far from their country and doing nothing to harm them? Not just presidents, generals, military profiteers, and the direct murderers themselves (“our” “armed forces”), but the sheep in the “voting public” who refused to think, refused to educate themselves, and refused to treat human beings as human beings because they looked different or had the “wrong” irrational and foolish religion?

    I think it’s strange and misguided for Westerners to lionize this Soleimani, but the nasty sarcasm about the killing of Soleimani and the smug (hypocritical?) mockery of his religion also seems unnecessary and wrong.

    So what “rational” and “sensible” religion do YOU adhere to that doesn’t have similar absurdities?

  7. @Zimriel

    Whose life did Soleimani make worse here in the USA? How about in Canada, Australia, Europe? And how?

    Soleimani might have harmed my family or my people or restricted our freedom if he could, I don’t know. But I know for sure what the rulers of the US have been doing to us for my entire lifetime, with increasing viciousness and increasing degrees of control, intimidation, taxation, and surveillance.

  8. Trump deserves a scud missile up his arse for murdering this great man to appease the Zionists… who f***ed his arse just the same.

    He was a Shia Muslim, so he likely feared God, just not yours. Honestly, Moloch is not a very likeable god.

    Making the lives of Jews worse is no sin.

    Whats interesting and obvious is the UK Foreign Office aka the BBC World Service helping the colour revolution along in Iran in the late 70s.

    Somebody in the west had decided it was ‘time for a change’ in Iran.

    It was a cliche later (Whoops Apocalypse and Spitting Image) to blame the soviets for provoking and promulgating the Iran revolution, but the BBC World Service was London, London organized and funded.

    Oil prices and all that. the usual excuse.

    Trump was not in charge. No president can go against the CIA, security and military complex. Unless he wants to die.

  13. @Friend.

    在苏莱曼尼先生被卑鄙谋杀几天后,记录了特朗普先生向一群捐助者发表演讲。 这种装腔作势和克林顿夫人对卡扎菲先生的自发高兴一样令人作呕。

    Were you unaware of this?

  14. @Friend.

    True, he was often not in charge, but he certainly gave the go-ahead to Soleimani’s murder.

    He knew and went along to appease the Jews.

  15. For a general, Soleimani sure has a skinny neck. No U.S. general I have ever seen looks like that.

    A skinny neck is no cause to have assassinated the man, mind you, but still….

    Does Iran’s military academy not require cadets repeatedly to press 25-lb. sandbags up over their heads while drill sergeants alternately insult the cadets and order the cadets to run high-kneed in place?

  16. CBB 说:

    re: skinny necks

    No, U.S. generals are generally obese, obsessed with white privilege, and soon, if not already, trans. And, of course, they answer not to their countrymen but only to the Globalist World Order.
