Abstract


Investigating the regional policies of the western world in the past three decades makes it clear that the victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran has made fundamental changes in these policies. Now, the question raised here is whether the Islamic revolution of Iran is a divine tradition that could change the equations of the western world in the region? (Question). The hypothesis of the present article is that the revolution of the Iranian nation and its victory over the Pahlavi dynasty, which cannot be explained in terms of the theories of materialist thinkers, was a divine tradition (Hypothesis). To substantiate this claim, we first deal with the nature and causes of divine traditions. After that, by linking the features of the Islamic Revolution of Iran to the concept of the divine tradition of assistance, we prove that the victory of the revolution of the Iranian nation has been a divine tradition. Then, the changes made in the equations of the West after the victory of the Islamic Revolution are enumerated (Methodology). The present article seeks to prove that, by using religious guidelines, we can have a correct analysis of the social events like the Islamic Revolution of Iran (Objective). By proving this issue, we can come to the conclusion that divine traditions are always present and fixed in the destiny of human societies, and sometimes contrary to the humans' will, the changes in human societies occur in accordance with divine traditions (Findings).
