Death of Imam Khomeini -
Tuesday June 4, 2019

Secular holiday : Seyyed Ruhollah Khomeini (May 17, 1900? - June 3, 1989) was a Shi'a Muslim cleric, and the political and spiritual leader of the 1979 Iranian Revolution which saw the overthrow of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last Shah of Iran. Following the Revolution, Khomeini held the office of Supreme Leader, the paramount figure in the political system of the new Islamic Republic, and retained this position until his death. Khomeini was considered a spiritual leader to many Shi'a Muslims, and in Iran is officially addressed as Imam rather than Ayatollah. Khomeini was also a highly influential and innovative Islamic political theorist, most noted for his development of the theory of the guardianship of the jurisconsult . Wikipedia


Anniversary of Uprising Against the Shah -
Wednesday June 5, 2019

Secular holiday : On the afternoon of June 3, 1963, Khomeini delivered a speech in which he warned the Shah that if he did not change his ways the day would come when the people would offer up thanks for his departure from the country. The immediate effect of the Imam's speech was his arrest two days later at 3 a.m. by a group of commandos, who hastily transferred him to the Qasr Prison in Tehran. As dawn broke on June 4, the news of his arrest spread first through Qom and then to other cities. Masses of angry demonstrators were confronted by tanks and ruthlessly slaughtered. It was not until six days later that order was fully restored. This uprising of Khordad 15, 1342 (the day in the Iranian calendar on which it began) marked a turning point in Iranian history. The events of the 15th of Khordadcan indeed be characterized as the prelude to the Islamic Revolution of 1978-79.

Martyrdom of Imam Sadeq -
Saturday June 29, 2019

Secular holiday : Jafar Sadeq (April 20, 702 - December 4, 765), is considered the sixth Shi'a imam by Twelver Shi'a Muslims. He was a theologian and jurist. His rulings are the basis of the Jafari school of Shi'a jurisprudence; but he is well respected by Sunnis for his contributions to the Sunni scholarship as well. The dispute over who was to succeed him led to the split of the Ismailis from the mainstream Twelver Shi'a and the establishment of the Aga Khans' family line. He died on December 4, 765. Some say that he was poisoned, thus becoming a martyr, like the Shi'a imams before him. He is buried in Medina, in the famous Jannat al-Baqi cemetery. Wikipedia
