Khomeini used his charisma and ability to draw on the history of Shiism to further his own ideology and tear down a government that he believed to be detrimental to Islam and start over as the government of Irans new leader. He was able to present himself as both the follower of Husain and the Hidden Imam without claiming to be either. By doing, this, Khomeini convinced thousands of people to follow is his footsteps as a leader to create a new Islamic republic of Iran. In a speech made on the day that the Islamic Republic of Iran was being officially declared, Khomeini said, I offer my sincere congratulations to the great people of Iran who were despised and oppressed by arrogant kinds throughout the history of the monarchy. God Almighty has granted us His favor and destroyed the regime of arrogance by His powerful hand, which has shown itself as the power of the oppressed (Khomeini Islam and Revolution 265).I think that while Khomeini used the ideas important to Shiism to further his cause, he truly believed that God was using him to promote not only Shiism, but also to strengthen Iran as a nation.Works Cited Amjad, Mohammad.Shiism and Revolution in Iran.PDF.Keddie, Nikki R.Iran and the Muslim World Resistance and Revolution.
