Imam Khomeini, most popular legendary leader in contemporary era

Imam Khomeini,the leader of Islamic revolution in Iran, has been the most popular legendary leader and visionary of the 20th century.

Researchers and scholar maintain that Imam Khomeini, the leader of contemporary Muslim world, was inspired by the philosophy of Karbala.

Imam used to maintain that the following footsteps of Imam Hossein (PBUH), the grandson of the holy prophet of Islam, would also help to inspire his nation to bring about Islamic revolution and prepare the people to confront the enemy.

The Islamic Revolution in Iran under the wise leadership of Imam Khomeini differs from other revolutions in the sense that it was not merely a spiritual, cultural, economic and political revolution.

But indeed it was an all-out revolution with deep affiliation with Islam itself.
The then Shah regime and his backers had no way but to cede the control of the country to the revolutionary forces, led by Imam Khomeini.

What makes the Islamic revolution distinguish from other contemporary movements is that Imam Khomeini believed that unlike other revolutions, the Islamic revolution should not spread through sedition, military expedition or terrorism.

According to Imam Khomeini’s thinking, the Iranian people should strive toward turning their revolution into a model for other Muslim nations.

The Islamic Revolution should reach such a level of evolution as to encourage other nations to follow the same course. It should promote Islamic teachings through defending the oppressed nations in the Islamic world, who have long been targeted by the global arrogance and colonial powers.

Islamic Revolution under wise leadership of Imam Khomeini emerged victorious in an era when many people in the world believed that Islamic teachings were no longer viable, the late Imam proved that Islam was a living and practicable code of life.
