Revolution is one of the greatest social changes which effects are very effective in changing societies. Since leaders have three roles in the process of revolution, including: ideologue, mobilizer and founder, they appear prominently in the role of mobilizer during the struggles. Imam Khomeini, as the leader of the Islamic Revolution, was able to play a role in all three dimensions of leadership, and especially in the mobilization of various intellectual groups, he appeared so successful. The main purpose of this study is to identify the role of Imam's leadership in mobilizing groups, and in this research, the method of document-analysis and note-taking from books, articles, and official documents have been used. Also in this article, we have used the Eric Hoffer's theories as an intermediate theorist on the role of mobilization leadership. Thus, the findings show that the Imams, with his position as a religious authority and using a divine power, appeared in the role of leadership of the revolution, and based on this, he mobilized various intellectual groups around the school of Islam and Islamic vision and specific non-violent political criteria. He exposed the face of a widespread public mobilization.
