Abstract. One of the recent achievements of the sacred system of the Islamic Republic of Iran is naming the years, which is officially performed by the country's first figure (the supreme leader) since 1999 and informs the society through IRIB. The supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, names every year due to his intelligence, wisdom, foresight and forecast. By examining this issue in this year, if there is a question in our minds that whether the name are stereotype and symbolic, we will certainly find the faith that there is a smart forecast behind this, and following the supreme leader’s guidelines and messages, many problems will be prevented and we can be prepared to deal with threats. Looking at past history of the Islamic Revolution, particularly the ideas of Great leader of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini (ra), we can refer to his message sent to the former Soviet leader, where it was predicted that communism will be found in museums. This research is a descriptive-analytical research on a series of speeches by the Supreme Leader. After content analysis of the speeches, firstly we understand the philosophy and purpose of naming the years, and secondly we can perform and follow the guidelines drawn by the Supreme Leader to obtain significant success, while preventing the occurrence of some problems.
