Al-Quds Day: Imam Khomeini’s Three-Decade-Old Heritage

Over three decades ago, Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran Ayotallah Imam Ruhollah Khomeini announced Al-Quds day on the last Friday of the Holy month of Ramadan.

(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - This step was taken by the Imam, after the victory of the Islamic revolution in Iran and the ouster of the tyrant, Shah Reza Pahlavi, who was a major ally of the United States and the Zionist entity in the Middle East.

As soon as the Iranian people’s revolution triumphed, Imam Khomeini closed the Israeli embassy in Iran ending all kinds of relations with the entity, and inaugurated a Palestinian embassy.

Imam Khomeini was the first in the world to take such a step in support of the Palestinian cause, and Iran was the first country to celebrate this day.

Later, the Arab and Islamic world adopted this call by organizing yearly marches to express their adherence to the Palestinian cause, and their honor to Al-Quds as a major Islamic sanctity.

This year was a pivotal stage to the Palestinian cause as well as the Israeli entity.

People in the Middle East started revealing awareness and taking action for supporting righteous causes, such as the Arab revolutions as well as the marches against Israel on Al-Nakba and Al-Naksa day. 

Friday the 26th of August is the last Friday of the Month of Ramadan this year, and various rallies have been organized to take place on this day to reassure that the Palestinian cause will always exist in the conscience of every free person in the world.
