It has been recalled through a series of memoirs that Imam Khomeini used to deal with great patience and moral with members of his medical teams during last year years of his life.


It has been narrated that Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic used to behave with great moral excellence and ethical norms with members of his medical team, including doctors and nurses. 

A team of doctors had been appointed to observe Imam’s health care after 1980s when his health conditions were not ideals.

 The doctors say that sometimes they suddenly used to reach Imam and enter by just knocking his door while he was busy in reciting Quran or doing another important tak. 

“Imam just used to raise his head in order listen us carefully just after finishing the last Quranic verse as he was busy in recitation,” they said. 

In those years, sometimes we had to check Imam’s blood pressure with a remote medical device during nighttime.  He never uttered an unpleasant expression if his nap was disturbed or he felt inconvenience during the process, they noted. 

Doctors also stated that Imam did read or engage in doing in other thing while listening us or carrying out medical instructions. 

Imam had great moral excellence and paid a special affection for each individual who was in the team. 

Thus Imam delivered us moral lessons through his well-balanced conduct and behavior and his divine personality remains a role-model for us, they stressed. 

Imam led a very simple life before and after becoming leader of the Islamic Republic as he used to opt to live in a very simply-built house following the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

Addressing the Physicians, Nurses and Staff of the Heart Hospital and some common people, Imam Khomeini once said as following:

“In the name of God, the beneficent, the merciful

Thanks to the physicians, nurses and employees of the hospital. I, during the time that I was in the hospital and was a source of trouble to you all and now I am departing from you gentleman, I thank you all and I pray for you all. I hope that we all during this time, and during these sensitive moments that our nation is passing through and conspiracies that are hatched against our nation and country, whole nation, all class of people should put hand in hand together and make the conspiracies ineffective.

I am very thankful all of you, the employees and the workers of the hospital and respected physicians who during this time showed their high love and care for me and like a son who nurses for his old father, nursed me. I am thankful. May God protect you all and protect all of nation.”
