Rasa – The international cultural activist stated that Imam Khomeyni gave a new life to the ‎Islamic ummah and considered the revival of the Islamic jurisprudence system, the power of ‎the Ummah of Islam and religious rationality as among the blessings of the 1979 Islamic ‎Revolution.‎

RNA – Speaking at the sixth session of the series of political and insightful meetings that was ‎held to mark the fortieth anniversary of Iran’s Islamic Revolution at Qom’s Chahar Mardan ‎Mosque, Hujjat al-Islam Dr. Soheil Asaad, an Argentinian cultural and religious activist in the ‎international arena, offered his congratulations on the anniversary of the victory of the ‎Islamic Revolution and said, “The divine hand manages the Islamic Revolution and the ‎Iranian nation.”‎

The convert to Islam added, “The phenomenon of the Islamic Revolution is not a normal ‎phenomenon. Today, more than 50,000 from all over the world are studying in Qom and ‎familiar with the effects of the Revolution. Today, those who previously had no knowledge ‎of Islam are interested in Islam and even some become Shi’ah clerics and promote religion ‎in foreign countries.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam Asaad referred to the situation of the Islamic world before and after the ‎Islamic Revolution and said, “At that time, the situation of Islam and Muslims in foreign ‎countries was very unsuitable and there was no access to proper information on Islamic ‎knowledge. Also, Muslims didn’t have any rights or status in foreign countries.”‎

He continued, “The late Imam [Khomeyni] gave the Islamic ummah a new life with the ‎Islamic Revolution. The purpose of the mission of the prophets was to revive the divine ‎traditions that lead to the life of the society. The late Imam was able to give life in various ‎dimensions to the people of Iran and the Islamic ummah.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam Asaad added that the revival of religious rationality was one of the great ‎achievements of the Islamic Revolution and noted, “The West portrays faith as blind ‎adherence, whereas the Revolution and pure Islam are the cause of religious rationality such ‎that if mankind doesn’t use reason, he cannot be a true believer.”‎
