Bahman 22nd

On the 22nd of Bahman each year, Iranian nation strikes its enemies a blow like an avalanche


Each year the presence of millions of people in Bahman 22 demonstrations shows that the Revolution and the Islamic Republic rely on the religious faith of the people. This is the main reason why the enemies are unable to undermine the Islamic Republic.  The opponents of the Islamic Republic are terrified when they see the massive participation of the people in various demonstrations held in the country. In order to mask this solidarity, with the help of their agents, the enemies pretend in their propaganda that the people are suffering from discord. 22 Bahman is a national wealth and it belongs to the Iranian nation, Imam Khomeini (r.a.), and the martyrs. The enemy is trying to undermine this great national wealth. Therefore, we must be present on the scene with all our power and move ahead thoughtfully. Jan 19, 2010

Bahman 22 is the real eid of our nation
Imam Khomeini showed us the way to live free, to become perfect, to live life in a way that satisfies God and is required in Islam, to truly construct life and to avoid compliance with anti-Islamic powers. To us, these are the lessons of Bahman 22.
Bahman 22 is the real eid of our nation. Bahman 22 is like Eid Al-Fitr for our nation in which the nation put an end to a difficult fasting period when our nation was deprived of spiritual and material nourishment. Bahman 22 is like Eid al-Adha; because it was on that day that our nation sacrificed their Ismails [sons].
Bahman 22 is like Eid al-Ghadir; because it was on that day that the blessings of the Wilayat and completion of the divine blessings became a reality and an external realization for the Iranian nation.
The authorities in charge of the Fajr celebrations should, as far as they can, make people aware of the truth of this ten-day celebration by organizing good, varied, rich and meaningful programs. January 24, 1990



Concealing the public participation in the Bahman 22 march
The enemy sees this movement, but he denies it in his propaganda. In his propaganda, he says that only “thousands” of the people came to the streets. They do not say that millions of people – overall, tens of millions of individuals – poured onto the streets. They do not mention this, but they understand it well enough. The enemy understands this and the whole world knows that a country whose people are in the middle of the arena in such a united way will come to no harm from the enemy’s plots and tricks. Everyone knows this. Your presence at the political and revolutionary scene of the country and the commemoration of the 22nd of Bahman of the year 1357 throughout the country was an important political and security move which was made by the Iranian nation. One should thank God because our hearts are in His hands: “Legs have moved on Your path and heads have turned towards You.” Our hands are stretched towards God and hearts are in His hands. It was God Who brought the people to the arena and therefore, we should be thankful to Him. We thank our dear people from the bottom of our hearts as well. The people chanted the same slogans: the slogan of “Death to America.” As I said the other day, this does not mean the American nation. On the 19th of Bahman, I said who this slogan refers to. Now, I would like to say that “Death to America” means death to imperialism, to aggression and to transgression against the rights of nations. This is what it means. Feb 18, 2019

The presence of the people has made the sapling of the Islamic Revolution grow bigger
The holy ten-day Fajr celebrations have already started. During these celebrations, two things are necessary for us and people like us. First, we need to be thankful to God. We bow to God with complete humility for bestowing this blessing on the Iranian nation. This great movement, this great achievement, this historic movement was carried out by the  Iranian nation under the leadership of our magnanimous Imam. The Islamic  Republic was established. The Iranian nation started its movement towards God,  towards divine goals, towards divine values. No other blessing is superior to this blessing and it is necessary to thank God for this great blessing at all times, particularly during the ten-day Fajr celebrations. Second, we need to be grateful to the Iranian people. They remained loyal. They showed magnanimity.  They made sacrifices. They showed courage. They exhibited insight. They were always present over the past 33 years so that this sapling grew stronger and produced more fruits on a daily basis in spite of all the dangers and all the problems.  Today the immaculate tree “ whose roots are firm and whose branches are in heaven [The Holy Quran, 14: 24] has put down roots in human life and produces fruits constantly.  Feb 3, 2012
