Philosophy of divine savior according to Imam Khomeini

Followers of all divine religions have firm belief and faith in emergence of a divine savior who could relieve the world from clutches of cruelty, injustice and inequality.

The genuine and original teachings of Islam, Christianity, Judaism and several other religions have been seemed talking about a certain era when the divine-oriented governance would prevail over all types of injustices.  

According to Imam Khomeini, the belief and concept of divine savior and reformer who would spread justice is considered to be a basic pillar of all divine religions. The founder of the Islamic Republic maintains that emergence of the current infallible Imam, who is one of the truthful successor of the holy prophet of Islam, forms essence of particularly Shia Muslims' belief which reminds us of faith, hope, and victory of good powers over evil ones,  and ultimate fortune.

Imam Khomeini used to underscore importance of the 15th Sha'ban, the birthday anniversary of twelfth infallible Imam Muhammad al-Mahdi (PBUH), one of the descendants of the holy prophet, Known as savior-and described the event as the most significant Eid for all devotees, faithful people and believers.

Imam Khomeini frequently through his messages and speeches cited from noble Quran as the belief is confirmed and well- established by the holy verses as well. "And We wished to do a favor to those who were weak (and oppressed) in the land, and to make them rulers and to make them the inheritors." (al-Qasas, verse 5)

The glad tiding of the emergence of the divine savior who would reduce sufferings of oppressed people, revive their rights and restore their rights, have also been manifested in several of Hadiths by the holy prophet of Islam.

“The world will not come to an end until a man from my family (Ahlul Bayt) and of my name shall be master of the world,” the holy prophet once said in a well-known Hadith, adding, “The Mahdi will be descended from me. He will fill the earth with equity and with justice, just as it has been filled with tyranny and oppression.”

Imam Khomeini’s explanations, academic works about the divine savior has deep roots in basic Islamic sources such as Quran and Sunnah. He stresses that the divine savior is well decorated with divine wisdom, knowledge, mercies, virtues and characteristics.

The savior is a divine-oriented perfect man which bears spiritual characteristics and carries out tasks for God’s sake and will.

"I am hopeful that the certain day will approach when the promise of God will come true and the oppressed will become inheritors of the earth,” Imam Khomeini once said in a historic message regarding the emergence of divine savior:

These are promises and good tidings of God the Almighty which will never fall short and will fully be fulfilled.

According to Imam Khomeini, the victory of goodness shows that the universe never stays impartial regarding the good and bad and that creator of this world doesn't remain neutral about the occurrences and happenings of this universe.

Imam Khomeini had strong belief that universe is being managed by the creator of humankind and all other creatures with a very deep perception and wisdom.

We bring some of phrases form Imam Khomeini’s speeches and messages as under:

“Real justice should be spread in the world in its true sense. This is a great thing. There is none among mankind except Mahdi for this task- God has preserved him in reserve to carry out this mission when God deems fit his birth stands a great feast for the Muslims and mankind. When Imam Mahdi appear he will set right every perversion.” Imam once said, adding, “Imam Mahdi is assigned to set right all these perversions and deviations. He will remove the torturous and sinuous things. The earth will be replete with justice in its true sense.”

Imam Khomeini described the 15th of month of Sh’aban as a divine feast for all faithful people. “Therefore, from this point of view, this is a feast for all Muslims. Since Mahdi will guide all the human beings, it is a feast of humanity. He will wipe out truculence and tyranny from the face of earth.”

The founder of the Islamic Republic frequently highlighted that everybody who takes solid steps to implement real justice, will be considered closely associated to the infallible savior.

For that reason, the founder of the Islamic Republic closely linked, allied and associated the Islamic Revolution and its objectives with divine cause of Hadrat Hujjah.
