(Persian: قاسم سلیمانی‎,[1] born 11 March 1957) is the commander of the Qods Force, a division of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), which conducts special operations outside Iran. He is listed by the United States government as a "terrorist",[2][3] and has been described as "both hated and admired" by his adversaries

Soleimani has been very influential in building up the military capacity of Hezbollah, shaping the post-war political landscape in Iraq, and turning around the Syrian civil war—driving opposition forces from strategic points.

Career and activities
[Soleimani joined the Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) in 1979 following the fall of the Shah of Iran to the Ayatollah Khomeini. Reportedly, his training was minimal, but he advanced rapidly. Early in his career as a guardsman, he was stationed in northwestern Iran and helped crush a Kurdish uprising.[4]
On 22 September 1980, when Saddam Hussein invaded Iran, Soleimani was a lieutenant in the ranks of the IRGC. During the war, from 1980 to 1988, he was stationed at the south front, commanding the Forty-First Tharallah Division[6] while still in his 20s. He is considered a hero of the war by some war veterans
After the war, during the 1990s, he was an IRGC commander in Kerman.[6] In this border region of Afghanistan where opium trade travels to Turkey and onto Europe, Soleimani's military experience helped him earn a reputation as a successful fighter against drug trafficking

Commands of the Quds Force
On 24 January 2011, Soleimani was promoted to major general by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.[6][9] Khamenei is described as having a close relationship with him, helping him financially and has called Soleimani a "living martyr".[4]
Soleimani has been described as "the single most powerful operative in the Middle East today" and the principal military strategist and tactician in Iran's effort to combat Western-Israeli influence and promote the expansion of Shiite influence throughout the Middle East.[4] Geneive Abdo has called him a "brilliant tactician".[10] In Iraq, as the commander of the Quds force, he is believed to have engineered the Iraqi coalition government in its current form, supporting the election of Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki.[4][11]
According to some sources, Soleimani is the principal leader and architect of the military wing of the Lebanese Shia party Hezbollah since his appointment as Quds commander in 1998.[4]

In the later half of 2012, Soleimani assumed personal control of the Iranian intervention in the Syrian civil war, when Iranians became deeply concerned about the Assad regime's lack of ability to fight the opposition, and the fallout to the Islamic Republic if the Syrian regime fell. In Damascus he is reported to be coordinating the war from a base in Damascus at which a Lebanese Hezbollah commander and an Iraqi Shiite militia coordinator have been mobilized, in addition to Syrian and Iranian officers. Brigadier General Hossein Hamadani, the Basij’s former deputy commander helps to run irregular militias that the Soleimani hope to continue the fight if Assad falls.[4] Under Soleimani the command has "coördinated attacks, trained militias, and set up an elaborate system to monitor rebel communications". According to a Middle Eastern security official Dexter Filkins talked to, thousands of Quds Force and Iraqi Shiite militiamen in Syria are "spread out across the entire country.”[4] The retaking of Qusayr from Syrian rebels was, according to John Maguire, a former C.I.A. officer in Iraq, "orchestrated" by Soleimani and "a great victory for him.”[

جب سلفیوں نے اعلان کیا کہ ہم بہت جلد کربلا پر حملہ کریں گے
اس کے جواب میں سپاہ قدس کے کمانڈر جناب قاسم سلیمانی کہتے ہیں:

اگر تمھارے پائوں فقط حرمِ سید الشہداء تک پہنچ گئےتو ہم اپنے رہبر ولی فقیھ آیت اللہ سید علی خامنہ ای کی اجازت سے ایک نئی کربلا رقم کریں گے، جو تاریخ میں درج ہو جائے گی۔
اور پھر اپنے رہبر کی سپاہ کے ساتھ نمازِ ظہر با جماعت جنت البقیع میں پڑھیں گے
