Imam Khomeini introduced holy lady Hadrat Fatima (PBUH) as divine role model for women

According to Imam Khomeini, the divine lady Fatima (PBUH) was not an ordinary woman; she was a spiritual woman, a heavenly woman, a perfect human being in the true sense of the word. She was a unique spiritual woman who embodied all the virtues of the prophets.

Imam Khomeini through his theological works and historic messages invited the women and the entire mankind to follow the practical divine conduct of the daughter of the holy prophet of Islam. 

In Imam Khomeini's viewpoint,  all divine dimensions and sublime virtues that one can imagine for a woman and a human being were personified in divine personality of Hadrat Fatima Zahra (peace be upon her). 

The holy prophet of Islam himself on several occasions praised the spiritual grades and position of her daughter, which has been recommended as a divine model for the whole humanity through all the history.

Quranic chapter of Kawthar was reveled on the occasion of the birthday of the divine lady Fatima. She was blessed with great amount of divine wisdom, spirituality and divine virtues. 

Imam Khomeini through his historic speeches and messages stressed that the holy prophet of Islam and infallible members of his families were a role model for the entire Muslim society and the world.

Imam Khomeini once said as following: 

The exemplar is Hazrat Fatima Zahra, upon whom be peace. The exemplar is the Prophet of Islam. We can say that our country is Islamic, that we have an Islamic Republic when all these ideals that are contained in Islam are realised.

In the following speech, Imam Khomeini describes the holy lady of Islam as a complete spiritual role-model for Muslims and entire humanity. The text of the speech comes as following: 

I also would like to offer my condolences to the entire Iranian nation, and you, gentlemen, the brave youth, on the death anniversary of the world's greatest lady. We must make a paragon of this Household. Not only should our women take example from their) Household's (women, and our men follow examples set by their men, but also everyone must emulate all of them. They dedicated their lives to supporting the oppressed and reviving the Divine tradition. We must follow suit and dedicate our lives to them. Those who know the history of Islam, know that each member of this household was like a perfect human being and even higher; That is, a divine and spiritual human being. They rose for the cause of nations and the oppressed against those who were after destroying them.
