The Islamic Revolution under the leadership of Imam Khomeini left deep impact cultural and spiritual across various parts of the world.

On the verge of the 42nd anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, a number of Iranian and Afghan political, cultural and religious figures have attended a webinar to highlight the influence of the late Imam Khomeini’s movement on neighboring countries and beyond.

The main purpose of the "Imam Khomeini, Islamic Revolution and the matter of Afghanistan" webinar was to cast light on the spread of Iran’s Islamic Revolution across the world and the policies of Imam Khomeini toward neighboring countries.

As attendees of this webinar said, the fact that the 1979 Islamic Revolution Movement of Afghanistan coincided with the Islamic Revolution of Iran is proof that Imam Khomeini’s movement was not limited to Iran’s territory.

Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution has changed the country for the better in many aspects. 

Before the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, Iranian people had no say in the way their country - a hereditary monarchy back then– was being ruled. Things, however, have changed.

ran’s Islamic revolution survived its 40th to celebrate a 42nd anniversary.

Iran commemorates its Islamic Revolution of 1979 each year during the 10-day dawn beginning 31st January in 2021.

It begins with the return date of the first leader of the revolution the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini all those decades ago, and it ends with the revolution; the day called Islamic Revolution's Victory Day or 22 of Bahman.

This year is not Iran’s first year of celebration of its Islamic revolution. However, what matters is how the revolution has survived over four decades riddled with hostility.

Is the secret in its natural resilience or survival skills; perhaps a little of both? Resilience is almost an undeniable attribute of the revolution, looking at its 40th. That was in 2019 when the country faced renewed hostility by America’s Trump Administration, and their attempt at regime change in Iran, to put it in American terms.
