Nader Ebrahimi, Story Writer: All media of the world write and tell and show that the biggest community that has ever gathered since the genesis of this world pray on this great man,"I bear witness that there is no God except Allah..."(اشهد ان لا اله الا الله ... )
IBNA: The first prayer in the west, Europe, France, Paris, Nofel Loshato. Now here a man simply, without any distress stands towards his God and talks with him.
Back of him, his pilgrims, his friends and fellows who are all less than twenty persons, imitate him for the prayer.
Haj Agha Ruh Allah Khomeini has opened his prayer rug under the apple tree. Ahmad (Imam's son) looks at the crowds and remembers Qom, 1342 (1963)- the day in which his father was the Imam of more than 30 thousand people. Suddenly a torrent of memoirs came to Ahmad’s thought- what a travel!- and answered all of them once and said: “ There is no God except Allah, there is singel God without associate.”
(لا اله الا الله وحده لا شریک له...).
Agha has forgotten every desire, this is his way. He pushes back all near and far reminiscences from his mind and – without even any legal or logical will- is changed to pure crystal of belief and God’s spirit in body of a man; to a white flower which only the breeze of God’s remembrance makes him bend and straight:
“Allah listens to him who praises Him” (سمعالله لمن حمده).
Agha with a calmness that contains a smile told: “let pray now”.
Here is the frontier of Iraq and Kuwait. A naked desert. The man starts strange praying in the margin of Kuwait’s strange desert, aims to gain favour…
Ahmad is with him, of course. Three other people also are with them. Haj Doaeei is there too. He may have gone to get permission of entering Kuwait. Maybe he has returned to Baghdad, Najaf, Karbala.
“God is the greatest, God is the greatest…” (الله اکبر، الله اکبر ...)
What a terrifying isolation, reaching from a foreign to closeness, then Agha says in full sweetness and ease of spirit: “for being close to God, is necessary...”
Agha looks at the salty lake which is passing hastily. From Qom to Tehran. He is captured. They drive panic-stricken to reach the Capital of tyranny. Haj Agha Ruh Allah Khomeini says without distress: “time of pray is passing, I should pray.”
One of them ,Savak's (The Security And Information Organization of Shah) persons, responds: “we don’t have permission to stop the car and let you leave the car”.
Mr. Khomeini says sneeringly: “sirs! Why do you fear so much? Everything is in your lord’s hand. The gun is in your hand. Power is in your hand. America, England and Israel are in your side. Why do you fear and tremble like this?
- "No problem. Don’t be sad! I pray as the car is moving.”
He stands on the yellow flower valley to pray; Lonely, anonymous: “Give us goodness in this world, and in the afterlife".(ربنا آتنا فیالدنیا حسنة و فیالاخرة حسنة ... )
He says: “remember that we don’t have more than one goodness. Goodness of the world and the afterlife are same; both of them are purity and enthusiasm to join to God…one is not attaching to mundane life- in the form of wealth- and the other is not attaching to the afterlife …there are other interpretations of course; but I know so...
50 foreign reporters are watching him that stands in the sky of Paris-Tehran. He whispered: I should pray.
One or two people around him stand. A reporter asks: “what is he doing?”
- He wants to pray.
- He should pray toward Mecca, shouldn’t he?
- He knows the principles and regulations of pray better than us.
-...“Prase is for Allah, that is created all of the world"...(... الحمدلله رب العالمین ... )
"I prase you and I ask your help.."
“I worship you and only ask your aid”
“Principles of pray”, “secrets of pray”, “a short explanation about sunrise blessing and pray”
When Agha was coming down every step, a memoir came to mind and run away. Every step was a memoir.
Tehran, Jamaran. Before this, he has never traveled like this to his collection of beautiful prays. Now that noble crowd- some of them were coming from every corner of Islam world and waiting him- were looking at him.
Iraqis had attacked Iran, maniacal, with the allure of occupying Iran, violently, foolishly; and now they were desperate. Saddam had sent an envoy to the leaders of Islamic countries - surreptitiously- to help him. That he has sank and can’t come up… I had come to revenge on non-arabs, but I can’t handle it…find a way…
Leaders of nine Islamic countries came to the land of Haj Agha Khomeini; and now they are ready to pray behind him.
Again the same smile comes to his lips, a smile that only his lovers can understand it a little, and suddenly the lovers’ heart became sunny.
It is an strange smile, full of meanings, without bragging, without pride, without presence, without being and became and was; an smile which contains the believes that have been flourished and his wife knows it. Martyred Mostafa (Imam's first son) also knew it. After them, Ahmad knows and then his daughters and some most intimates…
Agha looks at their faces, he has seen most of them in newspapers and TV news. “all of them are president, aren’t they?”
He looks and sees Mr.Hashemi Rafsanjani, Mr.Khamenei, Mr.Hojjati Kermani, Mr.Eshraghi and some of old friends…
- God is refined and praise belongs to Him and there is no God except Allah, God is the greatest...
Sky is crying, bitterly…
All media of the world write and tell and show that the biggest community that has ever gathered since the genesis of this world pray on this great man,"I bear witness that there is no God except Allah..."(اشهد ان لا اله الا الله ... )
Here is like an endless sea; a sea that its only ship is moving on the hands of human waves, it is He…*
