Memoirs of Marzieh Hadidchi (Part 13)

"We are commanded to be your guest for a few days!" the agents said, when their ransacking failed. "Well, apparently I can not do anything! But I beg you to go upstairs. I have seven daughters and your presence bothered them." I said. They went to the upstairs, where I showed them. And incidentally it was not bad for them, because they could watch everywhere. At noon, they came downstairs and asked for lunch.

I should continue my studying. After Ayatollah Saeedi martyrdom, I looked for a scholar to begin my studying. The debate meetings were held at scholars house. After a few sessions, I felt that he taught me reluctantly. One day, I went to his house according to the usual schedule at 10 am. "He said no much longer he can teach you." when I knocked, his wife opened the door and told me. I protested, why? He should tell me why he can not.

During this period, my husband changed his job and was busy workshop accounting in a construction and civil engineering company. Hence, he often traveled to distant cities and towns, such as Dezful and Abadan, and came home less. A few days in month he came home and then returned. In his travels, he met Mr. Ahmadi, one of Air Force non-commissioned officers in Dezful. Then, the officer invited me to deliver a lecture for women at the Dezful tactical base.

Later, I realized that the two houses in Qom from where we received leaflets by order of Ayatollah Saeedi, belonged to Ayatollah Montazeri and Ayatollah Rabbani Shirazi. The distribution of leaflets was in certain ways. Three nights a week, we went to Shemiranat and the north of city, and three nights to the south of city. We left the leaflets either under the windshield wiper or somehow dropped them into houses.

On a Tuesday, I entered Qom. After visiting the Masoumehs shrine, I headed an address where I should receive the leaflets. In the afternoon I went to Jamkaran and Sahib Al-Zaman Mosque. Reaching there, I observed the mustahabb actions after praying, and then, cleverly, I put some of leaflets between pages of Quran, Mafatih al-Jinan, and prayers books. I also walked around the mosque and with patient put leaflets between the pages of most of books.

After recovering, I realized what had happened and I had come back from a world to another world. After four years of that spiritual meeting, I tried to convince my husband to go to Qom from time to time; and through Imams friends and companions heard about him who lived in exile now, so that we could inform of his thoughts and plans. Among those whom we visited, I can mention the late Rabbani Shirazi, Shahid Mohammad Montazeri, and Mousavi Ardebili.

On the morning of that bloody day, I went out of the house to buy some bread. The Khorasan square was crowded. I went toward Shahbaz Street (17Shahrivar). I saw the policemen of police station 4 have stood in front of people and have defensive and battle array. The situation was completely unusual, but there was no overcrowding. I entered Sangak bakery, a few people were ahead of me in the queue.

In April 1961, grand ayatollah Boroujerdi passed away. The discussion of determining grand ayatollah was the matter of day. The unknown name of Ayatollah Khomeini was heard from some preachers who sat on the pulpits and preached. It was most familiar to the seminary students and scholars of Qom. Grand Ayatollahs pioneered to hold the memorial service of the Shiite Muslim religious authority, Ayatollah Boroujerdi. In fact, it implied introducing them as a grand Ayatollah, but the name of Ayatollah Khomeini was raised more than others due to the characteristics which were attributed to him.

I was looking for studies, while had three daughters. It was necessary to be adequately and sufficiently careful about their upbringing. Childrens upbringing, housekeeping, shopping, cooking, and entertaining guests who came sometimes from Hamedan, created a difficult situation for me. But I was pleased to deal with them, because my soul was satisfied; and continued my studies with great love, until we moved to our new house on Ghiasi Street (Aref intersection).

Memoirs of Marzieh Hadidchi (Part 4)

According to the circumstances and conditions of the time, doing somethings by women was not custom and even sometimes denounced. I was interested in making sense and in being informed of all issues due to my special mentalities, and sometimes did things that seemed odd to others. In the first ten days of Muharram, for example, I gathered all my friends and family members and formed a group.
