Hamid Algar, an expert on Islam and professor at California University  

A great deal of patience and calm was seen in Imam Personality during the Revolution victory and the following years. Imam protected this state of calm even during very bitter events over the course of years. Some misinterpreted this state as cold and unemotional. This is while the people from his close circle knew very well that Imam was suffering a great deal of grief due to people’s problems and troubles.  

The calm that was exercised by Imam that he had made himself deeply engaged himself in spiritual thought and worship. But at the same time he took unprecedented long-range and deep political decision. The whole life of Imam was manifestation of action and sacrifice. He  deeply engaged himself busy with the divine esteem.    

Dr. Kaleem Siddiqui, head of the Islamic center in London

Imam Khomeini revived Islam through his guidance and victory of the Islamic Revolution. He changed direction of history in the 20th century. Although Imam Khomeini was not a divine prophet or the infallible, yet the services he rendered for the supremacy of Islam were identical to those done by those divine personalities.

We were really looking for such a personality and he was really the leader of the all Muslim world.

Imam Khomeini as the leader of an Islamic society upraised for the sake of spiritual values. He also gained the freedom through spiritual values for his nation and prevented them from falling into ditches. Imam led a change and revolution in Iran in its real sense which echoed a return a return of a nation to its cultural and spiritual principals, and it was a real awakening.
