Imam Khomeini’s Arrival Reminds us of Matchless Epic

Imam Khomeini’s historic arrival from Paris to Tehran reminds us of the victory of the Islamic Revolution which has had a unique precedent in our contemporary history.

On Bahman 12, corresponding to February 1, 1979, the Iranian masses displayed the greatest historical welcome to the great religious and spiritual leader who spent more than 14 years in exile.

Large crowds of receivers and devotees from Mehrabad international airport to Behesht-e-Zahra cemetery had lined up and formed human chains to welcome their leader. The Iranian capital witnessed the greatest welcome in history as the enthusiastic masses were awaiting the arrival of the great religious and spiritual leader with bouquets of flowers in their hands. This all indicated the public’s matchless love for the great Islamic leader who bestowed dignity, honor and esteem to the humanity.

The triumphant arrival of Imam Khomeini in the Islamic land and matchless welcome by Iranian people clearly showed the Imam's spiritual influence on the hearts’ of the ordinary people and elites.

Imam Khomeini had played very decisive and determining role throughout all stages and phases of the Islamic movement. The great Imam took the first steps for founding the Islamic revolution while teaching in the seminaries and delivering speeches on the role of Islam in managing the society.

The great scholar’s attractive viewpoints which were released in the form of tapes or written statements in the mosques created a deep link between the leader and people.

Such activities yielded fruit several years later; so the Iranian people started nation-wide demonstrations against the dictatorial and corrupt Pahlavi regime by holding Imam Khomeini's pictures and placards containing words and statements of the Imam.

Leadership always plays the main role in organizing and planning the course of any move to achieve the desired goals and ideals. The sensitive role of the leader of the Islamic revolution of Iran in overthrowing the corrupt Pahlavi regime and replacing it with a new social-democratic system based on religious popular rule through revitalizing Islamic teachings is admitted by many experts and analysts of the events of Iran during the past decades. As a result, analyzing the personality of Imam Khomeini as the leader of the Islamic Revolution one can say that the Imam was a wise and brave leader. He was fully aware of his time and the international issues.

Imam Khomeini guided the greatest revolution in the contemporary era by using modern and innovative methods. He changed the course of history to the benefit of the oppressed people across the globe.

Now that the Iranian and all liberated nations around the globe celebrate the 35th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution, we realize that the Islamic revolution was a historical and inevitable necessity which was manifested as the symbol of truth-seeking in the modern era. At the time when humanity had plunged in materialism, a God-seeking nation under the leadership of a great for-sighted man rose to help the religion of God to enlighten the world with truth.

The Islamic revolution of Iran proved the efficiency of religion and offered modern man a practical experience of administrating human life on the basis of justice, human values and spirituality. We commemorate the Ten Days of Dawn of the Islamic revolution and the 35 years independence, dignity, honor, and freedom.

We see it necessary to appreciate the self-sacrifice of the men and women who paved the ground for freedom, dignity and independence.
