Note: The book " Allahvakil's Position" is narrated by Haj Ramdan Allahvakil, commander of the logistics of the 44th Brigade of Qama-e-Bani Hashem (PBUH) and the 91st Brigade of Baqiyatallah Hashem (PBUH), written by Fazlollah Sabri and Reza Azamian Jezi, and published by Marz-o-Bom Publishing House in collaboration with Isfahan Art District. The book begins with an introduction and the contents are divided into ten chapters.

The narrator was born in 1962 in the city of Ghazbarkhar and starts his narration from one day after the revolution. After giving a few explanations about the actions he took between the victory of the revolution and the beginning of the war, he goes to the fronts and works in the war. The book begins in the first chapter like this:

- Ahmad! Ahmad! Hamid. Ahmad! Ahmad! Hamid

- Dear Hamid! I hear your voice; what is your position?

- Hamid! Code 15 was sent to the position of Allahvakil.

This situation and its formalization in the wireless conversations of the units under the cover of the 44th Brigade of Qamar-e-Bani Hashem (PBUH) of the IRGC has special story with full of ups and downs.

After that, the text of the book is narrated in the first person. It takes about seventy pages for the audience to understand what is meant by " Allahvakil's Position". In the third chapter entitled "Bait al-Maqdis, Ramadan and Muharram" we read:

To place the new place, I considered a groove in the heights, which seemed to be a very suitable place to store items and equipment. Apparently, this place was the logistics position of the Iraqi forces before it was captured by our forces... Apart from the command position, the passage route to the defense lines passed by our position. There, this position was registered under the name of "AllahVakil". In order to find the way, the units ordered: Do you know the position of Allahvakil? Come from the road next to it... At the same time, one day, Mr. Shahmoradi came to the supply bunker while laughing... He said: Wow, you have created a conspiracy!... I was surprised: What is the matter? He said: Now we were listening to the Iraqis wirelessly. They say that we don't know what happened to the Iranians who regularly swear to each other and say to each other: Allah is the guardian! God the Allahvakil's Position!

The titles of the chapters of the book are: "Allahvakil's Position!" (Although in the header of this chapter, the title "Ahmed! Ahmed!, Hamid" is included), "New Operations", "Beit-ol-Moqaddas, Ramadan and Muharram", "Brigade Supplies in Dawn Operations", "Ground and Water Operations Support and Supplies", "Support and supply of the brigade to the bank of the Tigris", "Supply and support of the brigade next to Faw", "Support of two very difficult and difficult operations", "Separation from the 44th Brigade of Qamar-e-Bani Hashem (PBUH)". "On the slope of the end of the war". The final part of the book includes the documents, the picture album, the confirmation of the narrator of the book and the profile. Profiles include names of people, places, and operations, listed in one place and without categories.

The cover of this work, like some other books of Marz –o-Bom publications, has three layers with different types. In the first layer, the narrator's image is printed on kraft paper using black pen technique. Above it is the title of the book. Since the cover design is limited to the type of the title and the artistic and technical matters of working with fonts are not paid attention to, the title of the book has been entered with a bad taste from the point of view of editing. If it was possible to correct it with a simple graphic work.

The book "Allahvakil’s Position" was published in 1401 with the number of 1000 copies. This book has 385 pages and costs 114,000 Tomans) Iranian currency). Audio version of this book was produced by Abdullah Alaei and voiced by Amin Bakhtiari that is published in IranSada's Wbsite.

“Internal Reaction” published

Apart from the student activities and massive demonstrations in the years 1352 to 1354 (1973-1975), another part of my activities was the books I was writing myself. Of course, before they turned into books, I used to lend them in the form of nameless pamphlets in university libraries. Many harmful writings or books were taken to the mountains or transferred to other universities, sometimes even abroad.

Loss of Memory in Pahlavi Prisons

In total, [I was in prison] about 6 years in two arrests. For the first time after several years, a soldier arranged my escape. I do not know why! Maybe he was one of the influential elements of Islamic groups. They took me to the hospital for the treatment of my hand, which was broken due to the callousness of an officer.
