Last words of Omar Mukhtar


( – Omar Mukhtar, Emir of the Mujahideen of Libya, headed jihad against Italian invaders in the 1920-1930s. He was 70 years old, when he received a severe wound, and was taken prisoner by the invaders.

A dialogue in an infidels’ court in 1931, between the “judge” and Omar Mukhtar:


– Did you fight against the Italian state?

Omar: Yes

– Did you encourage people to fight against Italy?

Omar: Yes

– Are you aware of penalty for what you did?

Omar: Yes

– For how many years did you fight against Italy?

Omar: For 20 years already

– Do you regret of what you have done?

Omar: No

– Do you realize that you will be executed?

Omar: Yes

The “judge” remarked:

– It’s a dismal end for a man like you.

Hearing these words, Omar Mukhtar replied:

– On the contrary, it is the best way to end my life!

The “judge” then wanted to acquit him and deport him from the country if he appeals to Mujahideen in a statement to stop the Jihad. Then Omar Mukhtar said his famous words:

– My forefinger that admits in every prayer that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah cannot write a word of falsehood, we do not surrender, we win or die!
