Kuwaiti Imam: Teach Your Child to Pray Every Night for Martyrdom

The above clip was documented and translated by The Middle East Media Research Institute.

In May 2004, Kuwaiti Imam Sheik Ahmad Al-Qattan said that mothers and fathers should teach their children every night, before they go to bed, "to go on raids to liberate Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa" and to recite the prayer for martyrdom together with them. Al-Qattan's statements were made on the Saudi Al-Iqra TV channel.
