, , , , , ,

SHAFAQNA- Undoubtedly one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century, Imam Ruhollah Mousavi Khomeini, not only was the spiritual force behind the Islamic Revolution in Iran, but also influenced other world leaders in various parts of the world.

This video is a short subtitled excerpt from the documentary series ‘Ruhollah’, a series which takes a thorough and revealing look at the life of Imam Ruhollah Musawi Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Given the paucity of good leaders in the Muslim world, Imam Khomeini offers an example of great leadership.

Imam Khomeini was a towering personality who changed the course of history in profound ways. Imam’s legacy on the global stage remains firmly established. It can be said with confidence that he was perhaps the most successful revolutionary of the 20th century, unmatched and unrivaled by anyone.

He was a multi-dimensional personality: jurist, mystic, philosopher, statesman, revolutionary, as well as a poet. Many of his works remain unknown to most people.

To the outside world as well as many Muslims, Imam Khomeini is best known, and rightly so, as the leader who brought about the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1978–1979. This is truly a remarkable achievement in contemporary Muslim history .

But several divine dimensions of his personality still needs to be explored as he revived divine values at a juncture of history when the world had been plunged into social and moral decline.
