Thirty-third anniversary of Iran’s Islamic revolution

Editor

Rabi' al-Awwal 09, 14332012-02-01

This month marks the 33rd anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. The US- and Zionist-backed puppet Mohammad Reza Pahlavi (Shah of Iran) was driven from power by a tidal wave of mass uprising led by the charismatic and muttaqi leader, Imam Khomeini (may Allah (swt) comfort him) in February 1979.

Thirty-three years of valiant resistance and perseverance of the Islamic Republic

Abu Dharr

Rabi' al-Awwal 09, 14332012-02-01

Thirty-three years ago this month the world was witness to the fall of a Shah and the rise of an Imam. The Shah was Persian by culture, American by loyalty. The Imam was Persian by culture, Islamic by persuasion. The Muslims of the world along with the imperialist victims of the world rejoiced at this turn of events. Ever since that time Uncle Sam and his nephew Cohen have been playing their cards against the Imam and the Revolution.

What is Israel up to in the Caucasus?

Maksud Djavadov

Rabi' al-Thani 16, 14312010-04-01

Since Russia considers the Caucasus as its soft underbelly from where it might begin to unravel, any Zionist influence on events in the Caucasus will increase Israel’s bargaining power whenever it wants Russia to implement pro-Zionist policies. As cooperation between Iran and Russia increases, it seems Israel will also attempt to increase its influence even beyond Georgia in order to have greater leverage against Russia.​..

Unity And Integration -- Sources of Islamic Resurgence

Perwez Shafi

Rabi' al-Awwal 13, 14312010-02-27

(Paper presented at the Islami Wahdat Conference, Tehran) The unity is one of the most important value not only of Islam but of all other religions as well as of man-made secular ideologies. It is considered as a fundamental building block in human and social relations without which no higher purpose or lofty goal can be achieved. This is recognized and acknowledged by all of humankind.

Contemplating the possible end of Iran’s Islamic experiment

Iqbal Siddiqui

Rajab 08, 14302009-07-01

There are many possible explanations for the unrest that has broken out in Iran since the presidential elections last month. One thing that has become quite clear is that there was a pre-existing plan by enemies of the Islamic State to exploit the political uncertainty of the election period for their own purposes, regardless of the results; now perhaps we can see where the resources that the Bush administration had committed to destabilising Iran have been used.

The continuing relevance of the thought of Ali Shariati

Iqbal Siddiqui

Sha'ban 19, 14282007-09-01

Dr Ali Shariati, who died in London in June 1977, was among the most important figures of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, which unfortunately he did not live to see; and yet, 30 years after his death, his contribution and legacy are largely forgotten. During the 1970s, his lectures and writings played a crucial role in preparing young Iranians, brought up during the secularising and “Westoxicated” policies of the Shah’s regime, for the possibility of Islamic rule. In this paper, IQBAL SIDDIQUI analyses major elements of his thought, particularly his belief that Muslims need what Dr Kalim Siddiqui would later call “an intellectual revolution” in their under-standing of Islam.

Imam Khomeini: more than just an ‘alim, an intellectual or a revolutionary

Iqbal Siddiqui

Jumada' al-Ula' 15, 14282007-06-01

This month, as in every June since 1989, Muslims around the world will hold prayer meetings, lectures and other events to mark the anniversary of the death of Imam Khomeini, who died in Tehran on June 4, 1989, a decade after the Islamic Revolution in Iran with which he will always be associated. The usual speakers -- such as this writer -- will give the usual speeches, focusing on the usual aspects of his life and character.

... and why Islamic Iran still matters to the Islamic movement and all Muslims

Crescent International

Muharram 13, 14282007-02-01

A few short weeks ago, some in the Muslim world were bold enough to suggest that America’s problems in Iraq represented the beginning of the end for its hegemonic power. That may yet prove to be true; but George W. Bush’s belligerent warmongering against Iran suggests that celebrations may be premature.

Islamic movements and the need for total change

Zafar Bangash

Jumada' al-Ula' 24, 14262005-07-01

There are two distinct but diametrically opposite views competing for dominance in the Muslim world today. The ruling elites, totally subservient to the West, while paying lip service to Islam for fear of their people, promote secularism and the Westernization of society; the Islamic movement insists on the establishment of Islamic values and principles.

One of the virtues of the Islamic Revolution of a quarter of a century ago, and of its forthright and plain-spoken leadership, was its ability to go beyond generalizations and vague language. The Muslims of the world have been in a linguistic limbo for ages. Such words as “kafir,” “mushrik,” “munafiq,” “mustakbireen,” “mustad’afeen,” etc...
