Key Words:

Islamic awareness – Islamic uprising – Islamic revolution – Islam world

 

Introduction:

Islamic awareness is an issue that started at the time of the multilateral invasion of the west in Islam world and colonialism era and traversed the various stages from the beginning up to the era of Imam Khomeini (RA). This movement which had started with the ideas of some people such as Seyyed Jamal- Al-Din Asad Abādi, obviously became apparent among the limited and definite chains constantly and could never act as a dominant discourse. When this movement spread more by some persons like Hasan Albana and Seyyed Qotb in Egypt, it could not enter the life of all Muslims and create a new plan again.

Imam Khomeini (RA) could change the discourse of Islamic awareness into the "Political Action" for the first time and entered it not only in the arena of the action of the whole Muslim masses but also in the collective memory of all poor people. Combining the collective memory with the discourse of Islamic awareness that resulted from the Christ precise and aware conscience, Imam Khomeini could obtain great accomplishments for the Islamic and human society during a very short time. The first and the foremost accomplishment was this matter that the discourse of Islamic awareness changed into dominant discourse from the small discourse.

However, this movement never occurred easily and the obtrusive and rival discourses always intended to make the situation hard and difficult. The awareness discourse that was designed by Imam Khomeini was not an ephemeral movement but a historical movement which will be continued during the history and will be immortal. So, this discourse requires to be re-read and recovered permanently. The present essay intends to re-read this historical search and remind the pivotal role of Imam Khomeini in it and also the opponent and rival movements. We hope that no one forget accompanying this great movement.

 

Role of Islamic Revolution in the advent of Islamic Awareness:

The Islamic Republic of Iran has always been effective in the international changes as a free and independent country due to its geopolitics and geostrategic condition. Iran have had this capability to play a great role in various domains including effective thought fields, issue of resistance idea and fighting against colonialism, imperialism, absolutism and dictatorship.

The constitution movement, nationalization of the oil industry and the movement of Khordad15th in 1342 are the clear and historical cases of leading role of Iran. The separation from government and rulers’ policies was managed by the scholars of the religion and educated religious people in these crucial and effective periods. Because, the government followed the outside and received the model from them (for example, the model of Ataturk in Turkey) especially in Pahlavi era. So, the effectiveness was limited to the region and especially to Islamic countries in this historical period.

The Islamic awareness has occurred in the form of a social and organizational movement as a phenomenon which was affected by the intellectual movement of Islamic Republic at this time. This movement has proved its existence and influence in the arena of political and functional power which plays a great role in a world-wide scale.

Islamic Revolution is the main agent of Islamic awareness and has played a specific role in the trend of the Muslim nation's awareness undoubtedly. The phenomenon of Islamic Revolution caused the Islam and Islamic societies to come out of the isolation and inertia operationally and objectively after some centuries. Also, the energy which was released from it, made the Muslim people of the region aware of their rights and abilities, and falsified the talisman of invincibility of autocracy's monster and colonialism and imperialism's octopus as a motor which was a propelling and incentive for all movements and uprisings of the Islamic flows. This matter returned the "courage and self-confidence" to the Muslim nations. So, Tehran became as the headquarters of the Muslims in such situation according to the interpretation of Eqbal Lahoori, and the Islamic Republic changed into a unique factor in the revival, stability and development of the Islamic awareness and the center of the reconstitution of modern Islamic civilization in the current condition in the process of its advent, development and stabilization.

The Islamic movements and active flows which were affected by the people of Islamic societies, accepted the revolutionary rites and slogans of Iran such as crusade, martyrdom and self-sacrifice as their basic fighting principles. The mottoes of “No East, No West” “God is Powerful” “Down with the USA and Israel” and other religious slogans are as the exported slogans of Islamic Revolution that the movements and flows trust on them in their movements and demonstrations permanently.

These subjects which have a content as much as the greatness of a political and resistance model and pattern in the encounter with the events and factors, have infiltrated especially among the Muslim young generation and proved their positive and efficient influence.

It is almost more than three decades that the big and small, coherent and organized groups have appeared as the Islamic movements on the basis of and by belief in Islam in local, national, regional and international level. These movements which are benefited by the support of their societies are noticed by the other countries severely.

The Islamic awareness has changed into a political behavior and has been organized in the form of a political idea as a collective awareness with reliance on general willpower and affected by the pure Islam under the management of Islamic Republic of Iran in the present condition. The theorization of this intellectual movement has spent a formulated stage and occurred as a political model. The situation of the regional equations is sealing in the direction of Islam's interests and prudence and also Islamic movements in its progressive movement that these equations are opposing completely with the plans and purposes of the west.

This matter causes the balance of power to be changed into the favor of Shia movements with the cultural support of Islamic Revolution. A new intellectual front has been formed between the genuine Islamic movements and America and its dependent movements, and the Islam world is put in the crucial stage which requires a thoughtful insight and management.

West has started the nosedive period in the pinnacle of its growth graph and is in the reactive situation. However, the movement of the awareness of Islamic Republic experiences the revolutionary uprising rapidly, the movement which gets more close to its ideal outlook whenever it moves forward. Also, it is devastating the political and legal foundation of the west in the region with full self-confidence.

 

Islamic Vigilance Wave

The waves of Islamic Vigilance are spreading throughout the world rapidly nowadays, and Islamic values are reviving. The wave of Islamic vigilance has caused the colonial politics to be defeated, and the enemies try to confront this great wave which has been become widespread throughout the world via every way and acting upon various weapons.

In fact, the Islamic vigilance means the Islamic revival which becomes awake by the independence, justice and the whole divine exalted divine instructions and values.

By the failure of materialistic schools and common material values, the Islam world observes a widespread movement, and the enemies intend to create conflict and discord in this condition in order to confront this vigilance and movement.

 Regarding the increasing advancement of Islam, the  and expansion and popularization of the wave of Islamic vigilance in the world, the enemies of the Muslims such as America are trying to prevent these advancements by increasing the political, military and economical pressures disintegration of Islamic countries, imposition of the war and annihilation of public governments.

Today, America has understood the danger of the Islamic vigilance's development more than any other time and confronts the movement of Islamic awareness with serious challenges via the creation of big obstacles in this way. So, it intends to transmute the young people of the Islamic countries and separate the Islam world, so that it can ingest it easily with the presentation of the proposal of Great Middle East that Zionist theoreticians are its designers.

The formation of European Union (EU) is based on the common interests and common distresses and anxieties of these countries. The governments and nations of Islam world should become united on the basis of common belief and common enemy.

 

Vigilance: the necessary condition for success

Vigilance is the first condition of the success, but it is not the only and final condition. If we do not have the day instruction, we may go to sleep again whenever we become vigilant. So, two things are necessary:

The first is that what is the day instruction? Which work has the priority which we should do it at first? Is it the issue of Palestine or the change of the paradigm of the parties in Islamic countries? The second is that we should use our power and authority and cherish the power. Of course, the possession of the power is not only sufficient so that if we don't work to plan and direct our power, and don't know, how to use this power, we will fall asleep again.

If we know the globalization which means the process of making global the West world and making western the world as an actual danger, what have we done and what will we do for the globalization of the ideals in Islam? What is the kind of our universality? What is our Islamic paradigm? How much difference is there between our political organization and the west?

So, the Muslims should become awake from the ignorance and provide the arenas of the achievement of the Islamic ideals and purposes in a world-wide scale via removing the shaky powers and bringing to naught their colonial plans in order to attend in the global arena actively and play a determinant role in the determination of the global policy with reliance on the present abilities.

 

Current Century: Century of the Vigilance of Islam World

The victory of Islamic Revolution of Iran under the leadership of Imam Khomeini (RA) has been the beginning of new changes in Islam world, and this matter is the harbinger of this important subject that the current century is the century of the vigilance of Islam world. Imam Khomeini's  uprising and victory of Islamic Revolution were the blessing that caused Muslims to obtain this belief in the remotest areas of the world that the period of submission and self-loosing of Islam world against the west have been ended and the horizon which is in front of the Islam world is very bright and hopeful.

Although the Islamic awareness has spent some period, a new cycle of this movement can be seen throughout the world.

The changes of Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon and the recent incidents of the occupied Palestine all indicate the vigilance of Islam world. The Islamic countries should become alert more than before in order to reinforce the unity and correlation among themselves and maintain the independence of Islam world against the West.

With the expansion of the spirit of Islamic vigilance in the remotest areas of the world, some faithful young people in deprived Lebanon subdued Israel and forced them to escape without having any concession. Also, in Afghanistan which is famous as the graveyard of Empire subdued the governments of England and Russia and it intends to defeat the America Empire.

 The voice of Islam is the only proclamation which is heard in Turkey, Algeria and the other Islamic countries. Furthermore, in occupied Palestine, Intifada doesn't leave Zionist and imperialism safe, and if America thinks about the occupation of Iraq now, it is due to the matter that it wants to strike the vigilance and awareness of the Muslims actually.

The Muslims have become vigilant and started their work on the basis of three important principles: One of them is "Return to Pure Islam" which could overcome the great powers of that time in early Islamic period. The second is the "Unity of Islam World" which imperialism and colonialism used to try to create more distance between Islamic different groups via the reliance on the policy of "divide and rule", and the third principle of this vigilance is to struggle the arrogance and confront the disbelief, atheism, devil and paganisms of the time.

 

Islam World needs a new wave of vigilance:

After Islam defeated the great powers of Rome and Sassanid and extended rapidly by relying on the spiritual power and having influence on hearts and military power in the early Islamic period, it obtained a great part of the civilization world of that time for a while. Furthermore, the world of Islamic thought and intellection expanded along with the military and economical power in Islam world and it was the time that the civilized Europe of that era was spending its decline period. When the Islamic civilization was in the climax of fame and notoriety, the West civilization fell asleep so that the westerns remember it as the period of "Dark Era" nowadays, because they didn't have anything in order to present to the humanity world compared to Islam. In fact, the crusades were a counterattack that the west inflicted on Islam world and although, they could not obtain whatever they had from the viewpoint of military matters, they could become familiar with the thought culture, literature and advancements of the Islam world gradually, and this matter was an arena for the vigilance of the west. In fact, the renaissance period was the passage of the dark era and the beginning of a new period, famous as the "brilliance era".

Accordingly, being influenced by the Islam world, the westerns could make wonderful advancements, and the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries were the florescence period of the West world. And in this period, the Islam world fell asleep due to two factors; one of them was the colonialism and exploitation that the west accomplished in this important geographical and thoughtful region and the other one was the autocracy and deviation that the Muslim rulers had in this period and passed the way of deviation from the pure Islamic thoughts and intellections.

 

Capacity of civilization-building of Islamic Revolution

The repeated uprising of the culture and Islamic civilization resulted from the Revolution's spirit in the world-wide level, are the matters which causes the west to be stimulated against Iran. Especially this issue that the Islamic uprising has gone beyond the various areas of the Islam world and the spirit of Islamic vigilance has covered Asia, Africa and Latin America.

The Islamic Revolution revealed a new paradigm of the management in the arena of the power, politics and ruler ship, established a new shape of effectiveness which was different from the aforesaid historical efficiency and organized and guided a new kind of revitalization and thoughtful vigilance as a phenomenon which was formed on the basis of religion's values in accordance with the modern ways and methods of the democracy, and presented a new paradigm from the resistance and fighting against colonialism and  autocracy.

The Islamic Republic coined the expression of "Islamic nation" as a revolutionary concept in the political literature of the world. Also, it set the intellection of leaning towards a specific zone in the agenda as a new form in this framework and followed the process of changing into hegemony power that after three decades of effort and progress, it still can define its position as the model of the region. A model which could continue reinforcing the condition and developing its influence despite the existence of extrovert and interloper obtrusive hegemonies, also it could promote its regional arena into the global arena of Islam.

Iran harbingers a new regularity in the present condition and has confronted the foundations of the current political and security equations with the severe and unprecedented challenges in the soft and hard forms.

 

 Aim of Islamic Revolution: Identification and vigilance of Islam world.

The history indicates that the movement of Iranians has always been along with thinking and deliberation during the history and they have had an aware attendance in the global scene. Some parts of Iran history clearly show that the Iranians were superior and have indicated new ways for human in various periods and in different arenas.

The world was held by two Empires of Rome and Sassanid before Islam and these two powerful centers used to determine the duty of the world.

Iranians who were monotheists and familiar with the techniques of the country's governing and also benefited by the rich civilization, accepted the Islamic thought willingly when they encountered it and this matter indicated the maturity of their nature in the period after Islam. The Iranians found the Islamic thought according to their nature and this matter caused the Islamic intellection to be accepted, and it created a civilization harmonized with Islamic intellection beside the injustices and social problems. The Islamic civilization found an expansive fertility in the various arenas in this country in the period of social life of Iranians and at the time of the Islamic intellection and culture's excellence, while we saw a kind of silence in the western science and intellection from sixth to tenth century.

The Europe world was influenced by the Islamic thinkers like Avicenna and Ibn-Arabi, and various sects affected by these great figures were created and the Islamic civilization expanded its brightness in the West arena. Also, they obtained scientific growth under the patronage of Islamic scholars’ intellections gradually, but due to various internal and external reasons, the growing movement went towards falling and could not continue its way in the Islamic towns.

The Islamic civilization benefited the firmness in such a way that some people like Moguls who were savage and attacked our territory, were changed by the education of religious erudite such as Khaje Nasir-al-din-e-Toosi and they drank from the intellection. Saffavi era is one of the other splendid periods in the Islamic civilization of Iran that of course, we can't consider this period as an era without any shortcoming. The creation of national unity in the direction of gaining the great Iran, collection of Islamic resources and dissemination of the Prophet's family's culture were the important acts which were accomplished in Safavid era and they caused that period to be changed into an excellent era in our history and the same way is traversed at this time.

Due to the internal and external reasons and also the formation of colonial thought in the international scene, the Islamic civilization was involved in doldrums again after Saffavi era, but the constitutional movement was a good sign that triggered thought vigilance. Religious scholars were the pioneers of this great thought that changed the situation, but the constitutional movement faded under the shadow of change and deviated because of some external efforts and activities of internal Westernized activities that this matter caused the whole efforts of social reformers and religious grandees to become infirmed in this arena and our country to be involved in black dictatorship. The victory of Islamic Revolution is the other splendid time frame in Iran History which gave a new form to many defective aspects of previous periods in an evolutional movement, and Imam Khomeini (RA) adjoined the territories and hearts instead of the creation of the Empire according to the past generation's way.

Nowadays, we see the inspirational benefits of Islamic Revolution in the whole areas of the world, but some peevish countries that even the Islamic countries are among them, claim with the ignorance towards the nature of the Islamic Revolution that Islamic Revolution is after empire, while the Islamic revolution is after finding the identity and making awake the Islam world and has never thought about the expansion of the territory and Empire. The most important matter of Islamic Revolution was return to its identity, and the independence was formed in the political, cultural and economical arenas and a wave of new thoughts was created under this view.

From the beginning of the Islamic Revolution, Paying attention to self-esteem and resistance in front of our abilities under the intelligent leadership of Imam Khomeini (RA) and Ayatollah Khamenaei were spread to the inside of our society, and if Iran has got the knowledge and technology especially modern technologies such the technology of Air and Space and nanotechnology all of them are due to the spirit of Islamic and Revolutionary vigilance in Iran nation.

 

Imam Khomeini and discourse of Islamic vigilance:

What influence has Imam Khomeini had on the destiny of Islamic vigilance's movement in the world? How and by the help of which factors did he change the Islamic vigilance into a dominant discourse? What was the output of Islamic vigilance and what were the rival discourses?

If we want to understand and comprehend the position of Imam Khomeini (RA) in the Islamic awareness better, we should use the common ways in humanities. Nowadays, the matter of the method in the studies and investigations of humanities acts as the toolbox of recognition and it is important as much as it.

"Discourse analysis is one of the methods which has become as a household word verily and has been used by the Muslim researchers in order to understand the political phenomenon especially the Islamic Revolution and great intellections of Imam Khomeini for several times so far.

For example, the firm position of Imam against the left and deviated groups and the expressions such as American Islam, grandiose Satan, painless affluent classes, fanatic, poor and barefooted people and…. also the establishment of Revolutionary institutions and support of armed uprisings throughout the Islam world are analyzed by him in a process that is the discourse of Islamic vigilance.

Regarding the Islamic vigilance discourse, the concept of opposition and making-foreign is very clear and transparent. The hegemony world is recognized as the most important enemy of Islamic awareness and cause of all problems of Islam and Muslims. After that, there are small and great movements which resulted from the external and Imperialism willpower that Imam never ever relented in front of them and always emphasized on the danger of them.

Regarding this issue on the Islamic vigilance discourse under the leadership of Imam means that he clearly understood his matter that the Islamic vigilance is not possible without the political act, and political act is impossible with the establishment of a 100% Islamic government.

So, Imam acted to establish an Islamic government with a specific meaning for the first time and became successful. If he did not act to do this work, we couldn't have seen the domination of the discourse of Islamic awareness against the other discourses.

 

Finding the harms of Islam's vigilance movement:

This self-awareness and feeling which we call it “religious vigilance” in the new concept, transmits a unique message to the history that is, “we returned again and even and now it is our turn”. Perhaps, this willpower of vigilance had been created in small groups of the elites of Islam world about one century ago, but this matter has developed in the level of Islam nation at this time.

The main essence of this awareness is that the Islam nations gradually understand that they have kept distance from Islam, and if the Islamic societies have been involved in the moral degradation, humiliated under the economical and scientific backwardness in the world, involved in discord and disintegration, assaulted by the occupiers easily colonial and their resources are ravaged, the Muslims themselves are the abettor and culprit in all these degradations.

Considering the shortcomings and paying attention to our responsibilities are the beginning point of the Islamic awareness because the temper of aggression has always existed against the Muslims. The elites of Islam world have concluded that we have kept distance and got away from the Islamic wisdom, Islamic-moral values and also the divine regulations with juridical and diligent understanding gradually in recent centuries.

This feeling and self-awareness are the combination of two manners of "shame" and "regression will", the shame in front of the esteem which God have promised to the believers and nowadays, Muslims are devoid of it compared to the record of the past glory and esteem of the people in the early Islamic period, and the second is the combination of this shame with "vigilance desire" and "the willpower of regression to Islam" that it was generalized during 100 years ago gradually in the elites circles and then in the recent two decades with the blessing of Islamic Revolution in an eruptive and great way throughout the Islam world, and spread to the context of Islamic world.

 It is a kind of "Social repentance". The concepts such as "the lack of separation of religion from politics", "necessity of Islamic Jihad", "martyrdom", "testimonial operations", "the unity of Islam nation, Shia, Sunni and all Islamic sects", "establishment of Islamic Unions" throughout the world in the cultural, economical, political and military arenas, the concept of "the possibility of the rescuing of the poor people of the world", "establishment of Islamic government" or "regression to the Islamic civilization" in the level of public thought of Islam's world have not been propounded 30 years ago surely. These concepts existed in the level of the elites, religious intellectual people and some parts of specific circles that was along with the lack of compromising concerning the very concepts, but these concepts have been changed into the flags and hoisted in most of the Islamic countries even the countries which the Muslims are in the minority, and have become prominent concepts nowadays. If we are to sum this new self-awareness and Islamic vigilance in one clause, we can say that it means we return towards Islam with all its comprehensiveness and dimensions. Also, when we use the word of "return", it does not mean the historical reversed movement. The word of "regression" should not be meant as the regression into the past and retrogression, but of course the meaning is "regression into Islam" and historical repentance and a social compensation. It means that the Islam nation should notice the great distance which have detached from the Islamic concepts and values in the idea, ethics and social act and try to compensate the negligence of some recent centuries, the purpose of this regression is to construct a new Islamic civilization in accordance with the Islamic culture, and by the use of the whole lawful humane experiences so that in order to be used in the service of the purposes and commandments of Islam; and this matter is not possible without the logical deduction on a legal question and an Islamic powerful digestion in order to understand, analyze, refuse and accept the concepts which are fluent in the world and the civilization which is prevailing and dominant in the world.

The purpose of Islamic vigilance movement that our Revolution is its harbinger is the establishment of a global Mohammadian civilization that the wisdom should be along with spirituality, the power with ethics, the knowledge with value and the science with action. Creativity should be fundamentalism, and the fundamentalism shouldn't be mistaken with bigotry. Also, modern thinking should not be mistaken with heresy.

One of the most important vulnerable points is that the comprehensiveness of Islam be analyzed and an optional confrontation be occurred concerning Islam. It is the very danger which Quran has predicted and cautioned that such confrontation is not occurred concerning the religion. The interpretation of Quran is «ايمان به بعض و کفر به بعض».

It means that you should interpret Islam as an alive being and understand the whole dimension of it altogether. In fact, you shouldn't analyze and mutilate Islam as an alive being. Also, every party, group and nationality shouldn't make prominent a part of Islam due to a reason and ignore or weaken other dimensions of it.

The holy Quran has pointed to this calamity from other dimension with another interpretation, and has made the interpretation of «تحريف اکلم عن مواضعه» concerning the other religions that it means if the position of religious concepts is not seen, the geometry of religion's teachings is broken and the whole dimensions of it are not observed, we will be damaged.

One of the most important proposed issues that need deliberation is the damages and calamities which are in front of it concerning the Islamic awareness that has created many challenges for the pure movement of Islamic awareness.

The founder of Islamic Republic has pointed to some key damages concerning the investigation of damages and calamities of Islamic awareness.

1. The distortion and inversion of religious and Islamic concepts on behalf of leaders.

2. The political leaning of the governors of Islamic countries.

3. The bigotry and thoughtful stiffness.

4. The national and religious pseudo-intellectual.

5. The tribal and racial conflicts.

One of our problems is that some people, who used to be known as the agents of the Islamic vigilance in the world in the past history, became cavalier and weak concerning some Islamic values and mottoes; also, they rejected and doubted in those concepts or deviated in action.

The Holy Quran points to Balám Baoora in a verse that he had reached to high spiritual positions, but he dealt all those values with worldly short-term interests easily. It means that if we gain the highest spiritual position, we are still in danger. We should not interpret this verse in this negative way that if we reach to high spiritual position it is of no use and the destiny of all people is decadence and decline again! However, we should conclude that all of us should be watchful, take care of ourselves and maintain the condition in a serious alertness constantly.

The other point is that one of the following damages and dangers which has been designed and planned in the front of enemy is the aggravation of religious and tribal wars inside Islam religion which is followed specifically by the accusation to the religions.

For example, in some places, some books are distributed concerning the Shia which does not belong to the beliefs of Shia. Also, some odd characteristics are attributed to Shia that none of the narration sources of Shia has talked about them; and the Shia theologians and jurists don't believe in these matters. Furthermore, the same thing happens to some groups of Sunnism, and these issues are disseminated so that the concept of "the unity of Islamic sects" is weakened. Also, they make the uncommon points more prominent and the common points which are important and main, are faded, whereas we are united in the religion’s main issue, but they want to change the differences to the main issue, and common points are put aside, while if these differences of opinion are investigated scientifically, such juristic and theological differences which Shia has with Sunnism, exist among the groups of Sunnism themselves. The true way of confrontation with these differences is very important so that those contrasts do not become prominent. We experienced England in the past century and at this time we experience Zionists and America that they accomplish two works in Islam world: First, they make various sects under the name of Islam. Second, they start factious wars among the Muslims.

The next danger is the reinforcement of racial, national and tribal wars. One example would be the internal wars which started among the Muslims under the name of race, ethnicity and nationality in the past century especially in the past half-century that Islam world was disintegrated.

 The following damage is that there are two movements in the Islam world which are as the obstacle of the awareness and Islam's growth. One group is the people who confront the religion context rigidly, prevent the Ejtehad (logical deduction) on a legal question and defines Islam in such a way which is accomplished in a specific time and place and belongs to history now.

Also, there are some people who want to define Islam under the non-Islamic schools. It means that they adapt Islam with Liberalism or Marxism or … and then distort it; and they also change Islam in some cases so that it is harmonized with Liberalism or the other Western school and after all, they reconstruct an indeterminate, mistrustful, relative and individual Islam that crusade and politics do not exist in it. Furthermore, they encounter the religion's text selectively. So, we should be watchful against these two movements, for these two wings are in contrast with each other apparently, but in fact, they move forward Islam's world to Secularism, i.e. these two movements which are against each other apparently, want to do one work against Islam's nations at the end.

 

Islamic vigilance: The cause of America's defeat

In fact, the democratic movements are active in the various countries in serious levels and dimensions at this time, and play more expansive role than the national governments in the international arena from time to time. Also, they have remarkable influence on the process of global changes. A small group can frighten and subdue the great powers with a few numbers of human forces and reliance on the ideological ability and the power of faith.

The Islamic Republic should play a leader role in order to direct the vigilance and revival of Islamic thought. Furthermore, it should try to fight the deviated movements in the direction of Islamic unity and defense of pure Islamic movements.

So, we can play a great role in order to thwart the plan of Great Middle East with a true and extensive planning under the protection of Islamic vigilance.

The Islamic vigilance has played a specific role in the movement of Muslim nations. The Islamic Revolution which is the effect of Islamic vigilance's movement transformed the whole political, social and thoughtful substructure of colonizing countries in a movement relying on public willpower, and presented a powerful and intellectual paradigm in the historical generation.

Whatever that has caused the unilateral politics of America to be defeated in Middle East, Africa and even in the countries of Latin America's arena, is the wave of Islamic vigilance which makes more impression among the various groups whether the young people or scholastic ones day by day.

 

America and Confrontation with Islamic Vigilance:

The Islamic Republic of Iran was posed as the pivot of the Islamic uprising and vigilance in the global arena after the victory of Islamic Revolution. Meanwhile, the Middle East which has been as the arena of competition of Western colonizing power during the four centuries ago has been rose by the inspiration from the Islamic Revolution and arena to confront the West especially America.

Supporting liberal movements on behalf of the Islamic Republic throughout the world caused the interests of Western and Eastern arrogant, especially America, to be damaged in the various places of the world more seriously.

The American strategists started to fight Islamic Revolution of Iran in the period after the victory of Islamic Revolution so that they make a barrier against the Islam development and frustrate the project of issue and institutionalization of Revolution.

The clear example of this matter is the thirty-three-day war among the courageous people of Hezb-Allah with the occupier regime of Jerusalem. The issue of Lebanon and driving out Israel from the occupied lands was a tocsin for America and its conspirators so that the wave of leaning toward Islam does not threat their interests throughout the world and provide the causes of their frustration among the nations of the world.

Hezb-Allah gained a remarkable position and growth among the Lebanese with a thought affected by the Islamic Revolution, and worldly and spiritual supports of Islamic Republic of Iran. Also, it could take steps in the way of the accomplishment of the Islamic aims as it ought to.

Furthermore, we should point to this matter that America increases the level of its struggle with this Islamic uprising and wave day to day via the proposal of some matter like Great Middle East and use of propaganda levers such as fighting against terrorism, and it also intends to apply these politics more powerfully in order to suppress the Islamic movements, fight the political Islam and dissemination the cultural system of Secular.

 

Conclusion:

The Islamic Revolution of Iran has been one of the important and effective factors in the advancement of the trend of vigilance and awareness of the Muslims and increase of the Islamic effective activities in the Muslim societies.

The Islamic Revolution has caused the political equations and balance of power to be changed and transformed in a world-wide level and this matter has had some benefits for the Islamic nations, and after the passage of three decades from its bountiful life span, the strategy of Islamic thought is considered as a savior paradigm for all Islamic nations and humanity at this time.

Undoubtedly, there are a lot of common cases between the Islamic Revolution of Iran and aims of Islam world that the most important of which are: a unique idea, common aim, common enemy, monotheism, populism and …

The Islamic Revolution could give back the self-confidence to the Muslim masses under the leadership of Imam Khomeini (RA) with counting the common points of the Muslims of the world and the revival of the Islamic vigilance and uprising's spirit, and it takes out the Muslims from yoke of Colonialism and arrogance by being alert and avert.

The Muslim nations of the world have separated their destiny from the world governors depended on aggressive America and take steps under the flag of Islamic Revolution in the way of independence and freedom with following high aims of Islamic Revolution and reliance on Quran and Islamic rituals.

Imam Khomeini (RA) always emphasized on this fundamental case constantly that the meaning of our Revolution's issue is that whole nations and governments should become vigilant and save themselves from these problems which they have.

We hope that with the blessing of Islamic Revolution and expansion of vigilance's spirit and Islamic uprising throughout the world and even in the liberal nations, the glimmers of fighting against arrogance and colonialism become visible more than before, and the ringleaders of the dominant system become abject as they submit and obey the righteous demands of the poor and Muslims of the world and the call of Allah Akbar (God is great) be echoed throughout the world.
