Sheikh Ahmad Ja’farian, Ahmad Reza Attar, Mehdi Tamimian, Hamzeh Behmanesh, and Masoud Ghobadi were among the martyrs who had been dispatched to the frontlines of the war from this Mosque. At the present time, a number of the families of the martyrs are residents of this district. 

In order to honor the high status of the martyrs and appreciate their dignified families, who were described by Imam Khomeini as the lights and lanterns of this nation, an annual meeting is held to commemorate the martyrs of Belal Mosque.
