"Our religion is a religion of balance. We do not propagate locking ourselves indoors while tyranny and oppression spread, nor are we taught to become tyrannical in our pursuit of justice. God forbid, oppression and tyranny takes place through our actions in the pretends of the pursuit of justice. Unfortunately, today we have seen civilisations go from oppressed to oppressor. This is not just and we must resist such belief." - Imam Khomeini

Today mark the Demise Anniversary of the leader of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini (qs). He passed away on 3rd June, 1989, which I still consider as the saddest day of my life.

Imam Khomeini was an Islamic Revolutionary, scholar, thinker and a Great Leader who #led Iran away from the Axis of Evil. Before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, Iran was an American colony but today Iran is a free and independent nation.

Every year the Islamic Movement in Nigeria under the leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky mark the Demise Anniversary of Imam Khomeini as the "Imam Week". The programs include Blood donation, visiting the sick in the hospital and lectures to raise awareness on the life and times of the Great Khomeini.

When we were students at the Zaria University we organized the first #ImamWeek in 1990. I vividly remembered that day. It took place at the Faculty of Science Lecture Theater. The Guest Speaker was Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky. I started crying from the beginning of the lecture till the end. It was very emotional as a world without Khomeini is empty. Sheikh Zakzaky assured us that his Successor will follow in his footstep.

The Movement of the Great Khomeini has influenced millions of people outside Iran. A great honor that I am a product of this Movement. Today as I write, a #Khomeinist exist in all nations of the world. This is one of the greatness of Imam Khomeini (qs). Imam Khomeini inspired us to love the Oppressed and hate wicked Oppressors.

Before the glorious victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, Iran could not manufacture the wheels of a Helicopter, today Iran is manufacturing Helicopters. Before the Revolution, Iran import more than 90% of it needs but today Iran manufacture 90% of it needs. Before the Revolution the entire wealth of Iran was in the pocket of the US and UK regimes, today the wealth of Iran is in the hands of the people of Iran. This is the main reason why the Genocidal imperialist barbarians of the West are always angry with Revolutionary Iran.

Before the 1979 Revolution, Iran was another American colony like Saudi Arabia but today Iran is a rising power feared by Western hegemonic powers. The Western hegemonic barbarians are milking Saudi Arabia of it wealth but they can not milk Iran. The Revolution brought dignity and honor to Iran and Iranians.

It is important that we remember that the glory of Imam Khomeini is embedded with the great sacrifice of the Great Martyrs that Iran has produced who gave their lives willingly so that Iran will be free, independent and strong.

Our heartfelt condolences to Imam Mahdi (ajf) on the Demise Anniversary of his son, God congregate him with His Righteous Servants! #AlFatiha
