Imam Emphasized on Following the Holy Prophet's Teachings.

The founder of the Islamic Republic invited the Islamic community and all nations of the world to follow conduct of the holy prophet of Islam and his infallible successor. 

27th of lunar month of Rajab reminds us the holy prophet being assigned by God the Almighty to carry out the holy prophetic mission to guide the people 

Imam Khomeini, the spiritual and religious leader of the Muslim world, invited the whole Islamic community to follow footsteps of the honorable prophet of Islam Hadrat Mohammad (peace be upon him) in all areas of life.

The founder of the Islamic Republic used to issue special congratulatory messages on this occasion.

Imam Khomeini used to extend his congratulations to the millions strong Muslim Ummah and all the lovers of the holy Ahlul Bayt (the people of the household of prophet) on this event.

The holy prophet was a man from among themselves who was to lift the humanity from their slough of ignorance and depravity into the light of faith and devotion to one God. 

 When Hadrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) was 38 years of age, he spent most of his time in meditation and solitude. The cave of the mount Hira was his favorite place. It is there that he used to retire with food and water and spend days and weeks in remembrance of Allah. Nobody was allowed to go there except Khadijah and 'Ali (peace be upon them). He used to spend the whole month of Ramadhan therein. 

 The period of waiting had come to a close. His forty years of life had varied experiences, and from the world's point of view, he had developed a maturity of mind and judgment, although in reality he was the embodiment of perfection from the very beginning.

 He has said: "I was a prophet when Adam was between water and clay." His heart was overflowing with profound compassion for mankind and a pressing urge to eradicate wrong beliefs, social evils, cruelty and injustice. The moment had arrived when he was to be allowed to declare his prophethood. One day, when he was in the cave of Hira, Jibril (Gabriel) came to him and conveyed to him the following message of Allah: 

 Read in the name of thy Lord Who created, created man from a clot (of congealed blood): Read and thy Lord is most Bountiful, no taught with the pen, taught man that which he knew not. (Qur'an, 96:1-5)  These were the first ayats to be revealed, and the date was the 27th of Rajab, 40th year of elephant (610 C.E.). 

 The flow of the Divine message which continued for the next twenty-three years had begun, and the Prophet had arisen to proclaim the Unity of God and the Unity of Mankind, to demolish the edifice of superstition, ignorance, and disbelief, to set up a noble conception of life, and to lead mankind to the light of faith and celestial bliss. 

 The Shia scholars are almost unanimous that Holy Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him) was appointed to the prophetic mission on the 27th of Rajab and his prophethood commenced from the same day. However, the Sunni scholars usually claim that he was appointed to this mission during the holy month of Ramadan. 

Several of Imam Khomeini works emphasized on following the holy prophet as a role model for the whole humanity. 

It is noteworthy that Imam Khomeini established a comprehensive system based on divine and human values in contemporary history. Imam Khomeini frequently said that Islam was fully capable of establishing progressive democratic system.
