The faithful Iranian people showed adherence to Late Imam Khomeini and His Successor Imam Khamenei

The faithful Iranian people showed adherence Saturday to the sublime aspirations of the late founder of Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, and renewed their allegiance with his successor, The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei in a ceremony to commemorate the 22nd anniversary of the demise of the late leader.

The Supreme Leader in the ceremony outlined the characters of the current Islamic awakening in the region and said Imam Khomeini’s prediction came true during the regional uprisings. The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the school of the late Imam was founded on the three elements of spirituality, rationality and justice.

The Islamic Revolution Leader said the 22nd anniversary was coincided with the epic Islamic awakening of the regional nations so that the forecast of the divine man came true.

The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei called the school of the Imam as a great legacy for the Iranian nation, adding that the Iranian nation by the legacy could pass through hard terrains of the past 32 years and will pass in the future.

The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei pointed to waves of pure affections poured by the nation in memory of the late Imam, adding however that the profound faith of the Iranian nation in the late Imam went beyond the heart felt affection to convene their adherence in the clear school of Imam.

The Supreme Leader said the three elements of spirituality, rationality and justice which formed the school of Imam should be considered altogether so as to avoid any deviations from the path. The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei noted that the late Imam was a man of ultimate spirituality but at the same time he considered rationality and prudence at any conditions and pursued justice besides the two other elements through the very discourse of Islam and the Holy Koran.

The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the late Imam was also rational in his political awareness about the enemies and his solid perseverance against their conspiracies, adding that unlike those who considered it rational to relinquish the field in the face of enemy, Imam considered any withdrawal against the enemy as a grant of opportunity to the enemy for further advance. “For the same reason, he continued to stand against the enemies like a mountain to the end of his life,” the Supreme Leader said.

The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the late Imam also proved to be rational in that he imbued the nation with self-confidence, adding that against a background of relentless efforts of the arrogance and its internal stooges to make the people to feel humiliated and unable, Imam Khomeini put the motto of “we can” in the hearts of the people.

The Supreme Leader said the exceptional advances of the young Iranian scientists in different industrial and technological spheres were the palpable result of the Imam’s rational efforts to revive the moral in the Iranian nation.

The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei also described the trend of the formulation of the Constitution as another manifestation of the clear and rational thought of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, saying that the Imam through his precise calculations ceded it to people to choose the board in charge of the formulation of the draft Constitution and to vote to the Constitution afterwards in a nationwide referendum.

The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei said in view of Imam, the people are the owners of the country. “Imam, based on his insightful rationality taught people that they are the owners of the country rather than the dictators of the past regimes,” the IR Supreme Leader said.

The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the late Imam based on his rationality founded so strong a legal, social and political platform on the basis of which a great Islamic civilization can be established.

As for the element of spirituality, The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei said Imam strictly observed Islamic ethics in all his conducts and avoided any sins of backbiting, accusations, grudges, vanity and so on. “From the outset, Imam called the authorities to work for the sake of Allah and avoid looking down on people. He always urged them to welcome criticisms and admit their mistakes,” the IR Supreme Leader said.

As for the elements of justice, The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei said Imam paid a special attention to underprivileged strata of the society and called on the authorities to avoid luxury and instead help the poor people. “The great lessons must never be forgotten,” the IR Supreme Leader urged. In the same regard, The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei called it a huge plague if the authorities focus on personal welfare and strive to collect wealth.

The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei in another regard said the late Imam was insisting that the authorities should be chosen from among the people and considered it a big danger if individuals rely on sources of wealth or power in the society in a quest for government posts as it was common during the past dictatorial, royal regimes in Iran.

The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei said national and international dignity would be achieved through the school of Imam Khomeini, adding that ignorance of the spiritual side of the Imam’s line under the cover of justice seeking or making part of the society insecure in the name of revolutionary intentions are all deviations from the true path of Imam Khomeini.

“If an individual is not seeking subversive goals or enemy directions but also opposes our political inclinations, we must not trample on his or her security as the Holy Koran too advises us not to treat objections with injustice,” the IR Supreme Leader urged.

The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei then turned to the regional developments and said the great Islamic awakening in the Middle East was a significant and fateful incident.

The Leader Of Islamic Ummah And Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the developments in Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen and Bahrain, each must be given its own special analysis, however, it was a common knowledge in all those developments that whenever a nation becomes awakened and feels powerful, nothing could stop it from victory. “The world hegemony, the Bigger Satan and the bloodthirsty Zionists seek to block the eventual victory of the nations; However, if the nations get awakened and adhere to the Koranic call of patience and perseverance and have faith in the Divine promises, they will be victorious indeed,” the IR Supreme Leader said.
