The Messenger of God has said: “Verily I am leaving with you the two most valuable and weighty objects: The Book of God and my household (the Thaqalain).

Imam Khomeini (RA) and Islamic Awakening

Imam Khomeini (RA) and Islamic Awakening

Islamic awakening is one of the phenomena of recent decades that has occurred in Islamic countries and has caused many changes in Muslim societies. This great change has been influenced by strong and influential ideas. One of these influential factors resulting in many changes in the Islamic world was the late Imam Khomeini’s discourse. With the leadership of an Islamic revolution and with the change of the oppressive government to the Islamic Republic, as well as the ten years of leadership of this fledgling republic, he was able to have many effects on the Islamic awakening in other parts of the world and among Muslims and even oppressed non-Muslims. Imam Khomeini’s discourse manifests how Imam criticized modernity and modern civilization, and throws light on the Iranian Islamic civilization, emphasizing such concepts as independence, freedom and pure Muhammadan Islam.

Imam Khomeini Championed Women’s Rights

One of the gifts of being born into a family is that we inherit relatives, people who have experienced life before us. From these people, we inherit many shared values and family stories that shape our lives. Just as we have family heritage, we also have a faith heritage. As Muslims, we remember the great Muslim people who lived their lives in exceptional ways. Most often, their lives inspire us to follow their footsteps. Remembering those who have influenced us in the past and reflecting upon their lives can be a grounding experience and remind us where we have come from. It can be encouraging and empowering to reconnect with our roots and recall the lessons learned through the lives of those important to us.

Minds conscious of the Higher Being rededicate themselves to the cause of justice every time the name of Imam Khomeini comes to mind.

This is because he and justice were inseparable; he established contact beyond the grave and ensured that even when he is no more, the masses will find his ideas sufficient to sustain resistance against evil and promote uprightness.

Introduction: Imam Khomeini is one of the most prominent Muslim thinkers in the contemporary period whose thoughts and ideas can be studied and analyzed from various angles, including from the perspective of civilization. From this perspective, the position of Imam Khomeini is important because it has several outstanding features. First, Imam Khomeini is a thinker whose field of influence is beyond the Shiite world, but also beyond the Islamic world, and this feature has put his thought in the civilization style. The second is that; unlike many Muslim thinkers who have not and do not have a serious encounter with social issues, Imam Khomeini was directly confronted with these issues and had an objective understanding of them and is very effective. His third unique feature, which is the objective manifestation of the second feature, is that Imam Khomeini is the only religious scholar who has established a religious government in the contemporary period and has led it himself. These two features are important in the sense that, unlike others who have expressed their views more as a thinker and in the position of opinion, Imam Khomeini has combined his thought with action and his practical experience of implementing the teachings and the rulings of religion in society can reflect a more realistic conception of thought. Imam Khomeini believed both in the view of the comprehensiveness of the religion of Islam and its maximum ability to manage human affairs and meet his material and spiritual needs and move him towards progress and development in various dimensions, and by forming a government Showed the realization of part of his ideas in society.
