Published by the Islamic Revolution Publications, “The Pains that Changed into Gains” contains his memories of imprisonment and exile during the Pahlavi period and his struggles against the regime.
The book is a Persian translation of “Inna Ma as-Sabri Nasra” the Leader had written in Arabic. The memories were then compiled by the Iranian Arabic language scholar Mohammad-Ali Azarshab.
The Arabic version was unveiled by Lebanon’s Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah during a ceremony held in Beirut in early February to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
The book also contains unpublished photos of the Leader, his father and his children, in addition to a photo collection of the paintings related to the topics in the book.
