In an exclusive interview with Iran Press, Mu'allima Zeenah Ibrahim, wife of the leader of the Islamic Movement who attended the event, said that having Imam Khomeini in the world in this century is the greatest favor by Allah.

"After a very long period of hopelessness, to the extent that a lot of Muslims believed that the honor of Islam could not come back again, Imam Khomeini came at a very crucial time in the history of mankind and changed their minds. Every positive thing we are witnessing now, like the emergence of Axis of Resistance is a result of Imam Khomeini's work," she said.

Mu'allima Zeenah emphasized that Imam Khomeini renewed the hope in the hearts of believers and the oppressed people, made Muslims believe that Islam could be put into real practice at this present time:

"Before Imam Khomeini, this was considered impossible because of the domination of the world arrogant powers."
