Humanity Must Follow Footsteps of Imam Ali (PBUH)

Humanity Must Follow Footsteps of Imam Ali (PBUH)

The founder of the Islamic Republic invited all government officials and masses to follow footsteps of the truthful successor of the holy prophet in all perspectives of life.

Imam Khomeini also sent regular messages on birthday anniversary of Imam Ali (PBUH) each year and commemorated it as a great divine day.

Imam Ali’s (PBUH) auspicious birth happened in the holy month of Rajab, which is of great importance from Islamic viewpoint. Rajab is one of the sacred months dignified by Allah. Moreover, it's the month that has the honor of venerable occasions. 

The founder of the Islamic Republic  used to maintain in his messages  that  that Imam Ali (PBUH), is the appearance of the absolute justice, the marvel of the world , who has no equal by kindness in the world-from the beginning until the eternity- unless the more respectable Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him). 

Imam Khomeini frequently said  that if the human societies preserve Imam Ali’s legacy, they could be prevented from social and moral decline and a viable and  fair social justice could be established across the world. 

Imam Khomeini was profoundly attached to the dynamic personality of Imam Ali (PBUH), at whose shrine he spent over 13 years of his years in exile. 

The Father of the Islamic Revolution used to refer to the exceptional merits of Imam Ali (PBUH), who used to risk his life in many a crucial occasion for the defense of Islam and the Prophet. 

At the same time, the tender heart of the brave Imam Ali (PBUH) would weep at the sight of orphans, the needy and the oppressed, and he would spend whatever he had to alleviate their situation. 

According to Imam Khomeini, involvement in government affairs, however, never for a moment distracted his attention from his duties towards his family and kinsmen, nor from the worship of God Almighty in which he was deeply engrossed.   The prayer and supplications bequeathed to humanity by Imam Ali (PBUH) are testimony in this regard. 

These and other qualities made a lasting impression on the mind of the young Ruhollah from his childhood and lasted till the end of his fruitful life, during which he considered the path blazed out by Imam Ali (PBUH) all humanity as a guiding light. The honesty, sincerity, truthfulness, sagacity, and the acumen to differentiate right from wrong, were indeed ethereal values for the faithful to emulate. 

Imam Khomeini was a high ranking jurisprudence and mystic, qualities that he had acquired by deeply contemplating on the peerless personality of Imam Ali (PBUH).
