He was invited to give a speech at the University of Shiraz.He had two speeches to give before noon.After noon he had another two speeches to give before sunset.The question and answer session with the students had just finished and the Ustad (Martyr Mutahhari) was walking towards the car when a man approached him and invited him to give a lecture at his local mosque. It was not an easy thing to give speeches with different types of youth from morning till evening, however the Ustad accepted with pleasure. After the lecture in the Mosque, he went towards his place of residence. The driver of the Ustad was waiting for him to come and rest for a bit, however it was the time in which the Ustad would recite Quran.Even at the peak of fatigue – according to his nightly programme – he performed ablution and started reciting Quran. He was a man who never accepted fatigue and all aspects of his life were in the right place.
(as narrated by the Martyr's wife) I made an oath that if my child becomes better, I will give permission for my husband to go to Syria. My son Mohammad Javad had just been born when he became extremely ill, whatever we tried to do didn’t cure him, one day my heart broke, I said to Lady Zaynab (sa) that if my son gets better I will give my consent for my husband to once again defend your shrine. Perhaps less than 3 days had passed when my son got better. After that I became upset until I was able to carry out my oath. I asked my husband's commander to give permission to Mahdi in any way so that he could return to Syria.
Mahmood was a pious person, he would never misuse his status. I remember the time when children used to get ill, Mahmood would never take them to the hospital using the army's car which was given to him. Infact he would stay with the kids for whole night, hugging them tightly and then he would take them to the hospital next day by renting public transport. Everytime when I asked him, what do you do in the army? He would always reply, "Nothing. I sweep." One day I came to know about his status through one of his friends. But he would never give any explanation for the work he did and would say, "But does it make any difference that what work I do?" Whatever regulations was assigned to others in the army, he would also follow them. He had so much purity in his life that finally Allah accepted Mahmood near Him.
