Martyr Rasouli was born in 1959 in a religious family in Roodbar near Amol. Nader finished his preliminary studies but due to the loneliness of his father and his family’s poor financial conditions, he had to leave school and start working as a farmer. After a few years, he bought a pickup truck and started his job as a driver. As the Islamic Revolution of Iranian nation started, he made great efforts in order to establish the Islamic Republic and after the victory of the Revolution, martyr Rasouli joined his neighborhood’s Islamic Society and Basij. He was always present to defend his comrades when they were attacked by anti-revolutionary forces and thus had many enemies.

He usually used to go to city to help guard the neighborhoods. On January 25, 1982, he was busy working in farm when a conflict had started in city and Nader Rasouli was unaware of it. When he went back home to get some rest, he heard of the conflict and went to the city.

He reached the city hospital and started building a trench and then he saw one of his brother comrades was shot and martyred. He then rushed to the next trench where another one was martyred to pick up a weapon and use it against enemies and it was then when he was shot by a bullet from anti-revolution mercenaries. Nader Rasouli was martyred in that conflict and his restless soul joined his martyr comrades.
