    An article by His Excellency Hojjatul‐Islam wal Muslemeen Late Seyed Ahmad Khomeini about his noble father Imam Khomeini (ra) In the name of the most high Four years have already passed since the ascension of the great leader of the Islamic revolution and founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran and, today, the comprehension of the soundness of the thoughts and, the rectitude of the path of this beloved Imam can be verified better than ever before. The views of his holiness Imam Khomeini regarding the victory and perpetuation of the Islamic revolution, his emphasis on the revival and preservation of divine values, his recommendation that people be consistently present in political and social scenes, his approach to the problems of the world of Islam, his evaluations of the areas of International diplomacy, etc., are all proved and established principle which not only direct the path of our nation to happiness but have been developed into unquestionable principles of Islamic movements everywhere on earth.   One of the important undertakings of his holiness the Imam (ra) during his blissful life was to entrust the grave task and responsibility of guarding his written and spoken words to his noble son Hojjatul Islam val muslemin his excellency Seyyed Ahmad Khomeini. To be sure such a worthy selection was based on the divine foresight, careful evaluation and destiny‐making provident care of this honorable personality.   Often the beloved Imam has referred to this worthy son of his as one ʺcloser to him than anyone elseʺ and ʺwith whom he is well pleasedʺ. In one of his writings, the Imam has spoken of his son in these words: ʺI call on Almighty God to bear witness when I say that my son Ahmad, from the day he assumed the management of my affairs until today, has not spoken nor written a word against my word and pen and has, with painstaking almost obsessive care, made every effort to avoid the slightest alteration, even of one word in my spoken or written material, without first obtaining my permission.   International affairs division of the Institute for compilation and publication of the works of Imam Khomeini (ra) has, in the fourth year of the ascension of his holiness the Imam, translated and presented same to his cordial friends, the text of an article that his noble son had written on occasion of the secondary anniversary of his fatherʹs ascension. Although the works of the Imam, every line of them, testifies to the matchless personality of this great leader, yet, a look at the Imamʹs thoughts and ideas as considered by his  ʺloving sonʺ, a  ʺstudent in the absoluteʺ, and ʺconfidanteʺ will open the eyes to new vistas of the divine personality of this Blessed being!    We hope, this undertaking of the International affairs division of the Institute shall be a move to make the shining face of the great leader of the Islamic revolution better recognized.
