The Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, in a recent speech hailed the phenomena of Islamic Awakening that is sweeping across the region. In an audience he granted in Tehran to hundreds of university professors and prominent thinkers of the Islamic World, he presented a comprehensive analysis of the harms and dangers threatening the Islamic Awakening.


The Islamic Awakening, which has so far succeeded in overthrowing three of North Africa’s Arab dictatorial regimes, that is, Tunisia, Egypt and Libya; and is all set to topple more such dictatorial regimes in West Asia, like Bahrain and Jordan; in addition to changing the regime in Yemen, is in the danger of being infiltrated by Global Arrogance, especially the US. In view of this, the Leader said the enemies who are terrified of the power of Islam are trying to derail the Islamic movements in these countries.

He added: They do not fear the kind of Islam which is based on money, corruption, and oligarchy and the kind of Islam which is not supported by the majority of people. But they tremble with fear when they see the kind of Islam which is supported by the majority of people and which is based on selfless endeavours, trust in God and hope in Divine Promises. He was hopeful that vigilance among the people will strengthen the Islamic Awakening safe and make it difficult for the people to derail it.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the reason this grassroots movement is called Islamic Awakening is because of the pivotal part the teachings of Islam play in the regional revolutions and the role of the Muslim believers in organizing public demonstrations and in succeeding in overthrowing the corrupt regimes.

According to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, among the goals of the Islamic Awakening is to get rid of glob hegemony in view of the fact that wherever Islam prevails, the US spares no effort to undermine that country by putting on a false friendly smile to deceive the masses. This warrants the regional revolutions to distance themselves from Global Arrogance, otherwise, he added, they will be infiltrated and veered off the track through deception. He said that although Global Arrogance is using money, weapons and technology to tighten its tentacles on world people, the biggest problem of western regimes is their moral, political and intellectual bankruptcy, which means they do not have any new idea or attraction for the rest of humanity.

In contrast, said Ayatollah Khamenei, Islam always has fresh ideas and the necessary roadmap to help humanity on the path of progress towards the building of the great universal civilization. On the dynamism Ijtehad of its qualified religious scholars Islam is capable of breaking new grounds in industry, science, technology and humanities in harmony with ideological principles. The Leader pointed out that Islam caters to all the needs of human beings, and as the universal religion, it for all eras and geographical areas.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution noted that the world has witnessed many revolutions which after initial success, gradually lost sight of their objectives and deviated from their courses. One of the reasons in this regard, he said, was absence of a viable governing stem, which means that among the goals of the Islamic Awakening is to lay the groundwork for building the appropriate governing system. This lack of a governing system, said Ayatollah Khamenei, led to the failure of the revolutions that occurred in North Africa after World War 2, in Tunisia, Egypt and Sudan, where the people who took power, failed to build the necessary governing system.

As a result, he added, not the revolutions were destroyed from within, but it also led to change of tracks by the so-called revolutionary leaders, such as Mo’ammar Qadhafi of Libya and Ja’far Numeiri of Sudan, who suffered the consequences. According to Ayatollah Khamenei, another important point for safeguarding the achievements of the new revolutions is maintenance of people’s support, since it is the people who have the real power and wherever the people are solidly behind their leaders, the US and other big powers cannot do anything to harm them.

Thus, it is necessary to win the confidence of the people, cater to their needs and raise their awareness concerning all issues, including enemy plots, in order to keep them on the scene of the struggle. It is the duty of officials, intellectuals, authors, poets and especially religious scholars garner people’s support.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution pointed to the proper education of youths, as another important objective of the Islamic Awakening and the factor behind its progress. It is the progress of science and technology that will make Islamic states powerful and thus the youths should be encouraged to increase their knowledge and awareness.

Towards the end of his speech, Ayatollah Khamenei highlighted the need for unity among Muslim countries, saying: The western regimes, especially the US, are trying to create discord among Muslims by stoking such superficial differences as ethnicity and nationality as well as the difference of opinion among the Sunnis and Shi’ite Muslims. Therefore, all of us should be vigilant in order to thwart the American plot.
