In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
The Islamic Revolution in Imam Khomeini's Words
Occasion: The Anniversary Victory of the Islamic Revolution, 11 February
We congratulate Imam Al-Mahdi (May God hasten his appearance) and the Supreme Leader Imam Khamenei (God keep him) and all the believers especially the strugglers in the anniversary victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran which Imam Khomeini is the leader of it.
The Islamic revolution achieved a revival of the Original Mohammadian Islam, in the era of monopoly power and the restriction of dominance to arrogant, at a time of dominance of materialistic thoughts, and its power in the earth; Imam Al-Khomeini (may his secret be sacred) made the Islamic revolution in Iran, to activate God's governorship on earth and to correct the orientation of humanitarian and the rehabilitation of religion and spirituality. From these points, we behold that Al-Imam has seen the truth of revolution as follows:
• The Divine Revolution
Imam Khomeini (May his secret be sacred) says: "The transformation that has happened to our people from fear to competence and from feebleness to force was a divine shift". Because of this, Imam Khomeini focused on revolution's moral before it becomes a political and social feature, and about that he says: Our great Islamic revolution is a moral and spiritual revolution before it has been political and social". Besides, Imam used to consider that the reason of the success of the revolution is the relation with God the Al-Mighty, and being directed to Him before gathering a lot of people and ammunition, and Imam says with respect to this: "The secret of victory is believing in God and being directed to him" and he adds saying: "The reason of our triumph is the faith's power… and not the number of armies and ammunition".
Moreover, Imam Khomeini considers that the blessed Islamic Revolution is considered in the divine Sunnah path which is a must for the right to triumph over the oppression, and about this Imam says: "We are on the righteous way, and right is triumphed over the oppression, and he adds saying: "You are on the righteous path, and you faced the oppression, and for sure, right will triumph".
Conservation of the Revolution
Imam Khomeini (May his secret be sacred) points that conserving the revolution needs two principle elements:
First: To be under the control of believers ones and Imam says: "Iran had submitted to the believers the duty of conserving the revolution, and the revolution is progressing with the help of those believers".
Sacrifice: He (May his secret be sacred) says, "We must self-sacrifice; submit victims and sacrifices for the sake of revolution"...
Finally, Imam (May his secret be sacred) considers that the real victory is achieved by applying the Islam, and is completed when the true religion is completed in all the world, and he says with respect to this: "The final victory is achieved when Islam is applied in Iran with all its perspectives and goals and rules, and the greater victory will be achieved when Islam governs all the world".
All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
