RNA – An analytical conference entitled “The Study of the School of the Thought of Imam Khomeyni in India and Pakistan” was held via video conference at the headquarters of Rasa News Agency in Qom in the Urdu language.
Hujjat al-Islam Dr. Sayyed Maisam Hamidi, a political analyst and seminary and university professor in Pakistan, and Hujjat al-Islam RuheZafar Rizvi, the Friday prayer leader of Mumbai in India, attended the video conference.
Hujjat al-Islam Dr. Hamidi said, “When we study the lives of the leaders of the revolutions of the world, we see that they are a series of the rules and methods of their lives, according to which they determine the way and method of their goals. The simple life of Imam Khomeyni is the most important corner of the Islamic Revolution.”
He stated that Imam Khomeyni’s simple lifestyle isn’t a slogan, a political goal or appearance, adding, “The Imam’s simple lifestyle was derived from his mystical life. Imam Khomeyni wasn’t happy with a materialistic and seemingly pleasant life, he paid a lot of attention to the spiritual aspects and considered it more valuable and higher than a materialistic life.”
Analyzing Pakistan’s political issues, the analyst stressed that the purpose of a simple life isn’t to live in poverty and said, “Simple living means that human beings, despite having financial abilities, live like the lower and deprives people of society.”
Hujjat al-Islam Dr. Hamidi emphasized out that Imam Khomeyni’s simple lifestyle and avoidance of an aristocratic lifestyle had a message for the leaders who live in opulent palaces and added, “Islamic leaders who are luxury-oriented cannot feel the pain of the weak classes of society. The Prophet of Islam and the Imams also didn’t like aristocracy.”
The Pakistani cleric stated that during the victory of the Islamic Revolution, the enemies were unable to understand the nature of the revolution and thought that after a while the revolution would join the dustbin of history or will be replaced again with an imperial government and added, “They didn’t think that the Islamic Revolution would become a revolutionary movement against the global arrogance, but over time, when they realized the true nature of the Islamic Revolution, they began to create obstacles to the growth of the Islamic Revolution so that it doesn’t spread to their lands.”
Hujjat al-Islam Dr. Hamidi considered the theory of Wilayat al-Faqih (Guardianship of the Jurisprudent) as one of the most important pillars of Imam Khomeyni’s political thought concerning the leadership of the Islamic society during the occultation of Imam al-Mahdi and emphasized, “Imam Khomeyni is the only jurist who established an Islamic government on the based of this theory and had the first experience of the rule of an Islamic jurist over society.”
