The late founder of the Islamic Republic also highlighted the decisive role of divine savior in uprooting tyranny.


Citing many verses, Imam used to maintain that the firm belief about emergence of the savior is well- established and confirmed by the holy verses of noble Quran and other basic Islamic sources such as Hadiths narrated by the holy prophet of Islam and his infallible successors.  


The holy Quran says, "And We wished to do a favor to those who were weak (and oppressed) in the land, and to make them rulers and to make them the inheritors." (al-Qasas, verse 5)  


Imam Khomeini frequently through his messages and speeches cited from noble Quran as the belief is confirmed and well- established by the holy verses as well.


According to Islamic traditions, Hadrat Mahdi will fill the earth with justice after it is replete with tyranny. 


The glad tiding of the emergence of the divine savior who would reduce sufferings of oppressed people, revive their rights and restore their rights, have also been manifested in several of Hadiths by the holy prophet of Islam. 


“The world will not come to an end until a man from my family (Ahlul Bayt) and of my name shall be master of the world,” the holy prophet once said in a well-known Hadith, adding, “The Mahdi will be descended from me. He will fill the earth with equity and with justice, just as it has been filled with tyranny and oppression.”


From Imam Khomeini’s viewpoint, HadratHujjah, who is from the progeny and descendant of Fatima Zahra, the daughter of the holy prophet of Islam (peace be upon them), will be flag-bearer of justice and confront all exploiting and arrogant elements and powers.  


Imam Khomeini, the leader of contemporary Muslim world defined the event of 15th Sha'ban, the birthday anniversary of Hadrat Hujjat ibn Hasan al-Askari(PBUH), well-known as Imam Mahdi, as the most significant Eid for all humanity especially for the truth-seekers and believers.  


 The belief for emergence of the contemporary infallible Imam is considered to be a firm pillar of Shia Muslims' beliefs which reminds us of hope, faith, ultimate fortune and victory of good powers.


The great leader of the Muslim world said elsewhere: "I am hopeful that the certain day will approach when the promise of God will come true and the oppressed will become inheritors of the earth.” 


Highlighting the significance of mid-Sh’aban which marks birth anniversary of Imam Mahdi (PBUH), divine savior, the late founder of the Islamic Republic through a series of historic messages said as following:


Imām Mahdī (PBUH) is assigned to set right all these perversions and deviations. He will bring man from the abyss of depravation. It is said: “He fills the earth with justice after having been replete with tyranny.” (  Sahifeh-ye-Imam, Vol.12, page 409)


How auspicious is the birthday of the one who is to establish universal justice, for which purpose all the divine prophets (peace be upon them) have been sent!  (Sahifeh-ye-Imam, Vol.14, page 402)


How auspicious is the birthday of the champion who shall purify this world from the evils of the tyrants and scoundrels and will fill the earth with fairness and justice after it has been filled with cruelty and oppression! ( Sahifeh-ye-Imam, Vol.14, page 402)
