18 years has passed since the demise of Hajj Sayyid Ahmad Khomeini, Imam’s beloved son and companion

“As the overpowering, omnipresent and avenging God is my witness, since the day Ahmad has been administering my affairs in the exterior wing of my house till this very moment that I am writing these lines, he has taken no step and used no pen against my words or my written texts. He has also been painstakingly thorough in ensuring that not one word or even one letter of my sayings or writings is distorted. In addition even if he was sure that a letter needed to be fixed, he did not do so without my permission.”  Imam Khomeini

Imam Khomeini used different sources to lead the revolution. Hajj Sayyid Ahmad as one of his consultants played a unique role in this field.
Sayyid Ahmad’s activities aren’t just limited to the pre revolution era, but he was at the service of Imam and the revolution until his last days.
His role as a consultant beside Imam especially after the revolution like during the riots and movements of some groups, Imam’s commandership at the war, organizing and managing the country, attending the sessions of the three wing powers and … is a role that a few could have done it. For delivering the news to Imam a close person to him was needed, and the only person suitable was Sayyid Ahmad. Though the authorities were directly in contact with Imam but it was only through him that they could have received a recommendation or deliver a report to Imam, at times an official would have called at midnight and because Imam was resting, Sayyid Ahmad would have delivered the issues to Imam. He had consulted Imam in different issues. And at times that he had a different view from Imam on something he fully accepted Imam’s sayings and used to say: “Imam understands better than us and for sure we are mistaking.”
