The triumph or fiasco of the revolutionary movements largely depends upon the extent of mobilization of the masses in the process of revolutionary struggle. In the victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran, the masses have played an important role. However, it is not possible to understand the role of the people in the process of revolution without knowing the role and quality of the leadership and how to mobilize the people. This article is a qualitative and documentary analysis that seeks to answer the key question: "How did Imam Khomeini, as the leader of the Islamic Revolution, mobilize the people in the process of revolution?"
