The historical memoirs of influential people in society are of particular importance for both studying and taking a lesson for the posterity; especially the memories that have emerged in order to fight against the oppression of tyrannical rulers such as the Pahlavis and in order to promote and achieve divine values and ideals. With such an attitude, the Center for Islamic Revolution Documents has published the memoirs of one of the current figures in the Iranian political scene in the years before and after the victory of the Islamic Revolution.

Hojjat al-Eslam va al-moslemin Seyed Hossein Hosseini is one of the companions of Imam Khomeini movement. At a young age, while learning Islamic sciences, he was involved in politics and struggles, and became one of the promoters of Imam Khomeini's movement. The peak of these political efforts was in the autumn and winter of 1978, accompanied by the revolutionary clergies of Aliabad Katoul.

Hojjat al-Eslam va al-moslemin Seyed Hossein Hosseini after the victory of the Islamic Revolution until 1981 served in various organizations, especially the Interim Committee of the Islamic Revolution and the Seven-Member Delegation of Land Transfer and then for nearly four decades has served as the Friday Prayer leader in the towns of Shirvan, Garmsar and Minoodasht; He also manages several theological and cultural centers.

He was present in the Iraqi imposed war against Iran and has written in his memories that in 1986 he has received an aba or cloak as a gift from Imam Khomeini and since then he has used this aba in all Friday prayers.

The book "Memoirs of Hojjat al-Eslam va al-moslemin Seyed Hossein Hosseini" is dedicated to recording the notes and memoirs of this religious scholar from the events before and after the revolution.

The third chapter, entitled "The Arena of Politics and Struggle", includes political memoirs and struggles against the Pahlavi regime until the victory of the Islamic Revolution.

The fifth chapter, entitled "Friday Prayer Leader in the Town of Shirvan", is a chapter that has brought detailed memoirs of the narrator during the years 1981 to 1997.
