Imam Khomeini promoted lofty human values in today's world

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic considered the spreading of lofty human values in our society and the reversion of the people in unaltered Islam

Imam Khomeini not only invalidated the theory that social actions cannot come into being based on purely spiritual motives alone, rather with the Islamic Revolution; he proved that such an idea can be confirmed.

Thus he considered the spreading of lofty human values in our society and the reversion of the people in unaltered Islam as well as their faith and conviction in religious and Islamic values had become so widespread that the people of Iran deemed self-sacrifice and risking their lives in its path to be their human and divine obligation and emerged victories from the fields of struggle and sacred defence.

The radiant face of thousands of martyrs and virtuous men of religion is a clear testimony of the ingenuity and perpetuation of the wave of the Imam’s social reform and revival of religious thought. This too can be considered as yet another of the services rendered by the Imam to human society and the field of knowledge especially to the Shiite world.

 As a religious authority, pioneer and political ideologue in the era of obsolescence and elimination of religion in culture and civilization of the period, by implementing the methods used by the Honourable Prophet of Islam  and the Fourteen Infallibles of the household of the Prophet , was able to bring back to the scene of social living a nation whose cheer and independence had been taken away by colonialism and to offer to the world a regime based on wishes and will of the people in the form of the constitution of the Islamic Republic which heralds justice, freedom and independence.

The new model of a regime of religious democracy laid the foundations of renewal and reform while systematizing its framework in such a manner in the constitution that the process of construction, renovation and reform in Iran was accelerated leaving behind the most significant practical yardstick of administration in the era of Disappearance of the Savior Imam as his legacy and that of the Revolution.

Yet another noteworthy point in revival of religious thought by the late Imam was the issue of culture-making.

This spiritual culture-making had arisen and was the consequence of a permanence and continuity that the Imam gave with utmost resolve to the religious wishes and sentiments of the people. 

At the same time as being flexible and magnanimous, he never showed leniency when it concerned implementing the decrees of religion and attaining religious objectives. He was convinced that toleration of all political and social problems was not only worth the realization of a religious commandment and order; rather, it was superior to it. This firm and unflinching thought of the Imam was clear and known to one and all.

Even the enemies who had arisen in opposition and conflict with the Imam’s Revolution despite all the problems and incidents that they created for this divine and spiritual agitation, uniformly agreed with the view that the Imam cannot be made to change his mind about this idea. Gradually the spirit of orthodoxy and spiritualism that had taken their primary asset and capital from the Imam and his condition, took the form of a common and all-encompassing culture in our society and among the followers and adherents of the Imam to the extent that those who in this path did not possess the necessary capital and experience attempted to move behind this cultural current and to ornate themselves with religious apparels and religious ornamentations.

The condition of the government offices, organizations, ministries, universities etc…changed dramatically.

Thousands of government bodies, institutions, organizations, libraries, cultural centres and centres of theological research and development were created.
