Muzaffar al-Rabe’ei:  The Islamic Revolution under the leadership of Imam strengthened the Muslim cause and proved to be a gald-tiding for the oppressed nations. The Islamic movement also countered the Zionists’ influence in the Mideast region. 

The historic revolution also revived the genuine teachings of Islam and is dreams of all prophets came true by the emergence of the revolution under Imam’s wise and comprehensive leadership.

Question:  How do you analyze the influence of the Iran’s historic revolution on the Islamic awakening? 

The movement led by the great Imam and martyr Baqir al-Sadr confronted atheistic  views and revived and promoted true Islam and the school of thought of the household of the holy prophet of Islam.
