Women are the educators of the human beings, Imam Khomeini defined

Regarding the status and greatness of women in Islam, Imam Khomeini has stated: “The prosperity and wretchedness of mankind depends on women since they are the educators of the human beings; women shape real human beings through their proper training, and all the happiness and good deeds originate from women.”

 He also adds: “If brave women are taken away from nations, the nations will succumb to defeat and decadence.”  According to Imam Khomeini, Women are great trainer of society. Men are brought up by women. Happiness and misery of a country depends on women.

In general, the value of mankind in the viewpoint of Imam Khomeini is defined through “humanity” which is emphasized by the Qur’an, too. The status and individuality of human beings as well as their rights of freedom have a structure which has been provided by the Islamic teachings and the brilliant commandments of Qur’an.

Outside these holy borders, the human status of mankind is manipulated by the carnal desires of dishonest people, and it will not have a genuine definition and content anymore. Ayah 43 of surah Ale Imran reads: “O Maryam! Keep to obedience to your Lord and humble yourself, and bow down with those who bow.”

According to the great leader of the revolution, Fatimah and Zainab (peace be upon them) are two appropriate role models whom Muslim women should follow in every arena, since they are the two women in whom the human identity is manifested.

They are the honor of the family of revelation and shine over the summit of Islam. Fatimah is a woman whose virtues are at the same level as the infinite virtues of the Prophet Muhammad and his descendants.

The woman whom many –with various viewpoints – have talked about but their words fell short on praising her. The lady of the World of Islam is a holy and spiritual woman and a true human being.

She is the true face of humanity and the women. She is a divine and heavenly being who has appeared as a woman; a woman who has gathered all the characteristics of prophets within herself.

She is the one who has commenced her spiritual journey from nature, and through the power of God and the training of the Prophet Muhammad, she has reached such a stance that no one can compete with her.

This woman has been the purpose of the creation and the interpretation of “hayya ala khair al-amal” is referring to “doing good to her and her children”.
