It was 9:30 in the morning of February 1, 1979 at Mehr Abad Airport. The lovers of Imam had gathered there from early hours and days and they were waiting there by holding some bunches of flowers. They had gathered in the airport in order to welcome their leader who was 15 years away from their country and who had stayed in exile and he was returning to Iran.
The French pilot of the Air France Flight who had flew from Charl Degol Airport a night before that had announced that right now they are in the space of Iran’s sky and that they will land after an hour. All the passengers of the airplane had been so excited and worried about the issue except one person and he was no one except Imam Khomeini who was returning to Iran after a long term of exile and movement. Eventually the revolution was winning after many years.
But he was worshipping God and praying at a place which had been considered for him. He was talking with his God in his own privacy.
