Asrar-i Hazarsala  by Ali Akbar Hakimzadehwho had abandoned clerical studies at Qom seminary and in the mids published a modernist journal titled Humayun that advocated reformation in Islam.
Kashf al-Asrar is the first book that expresses Khomeini’s political views. Ruhollah Khomeini wrote Kashf al-Asrar to answer questions about the credibility of Islamic and Shia beliefs that originated in a pamphlet called The Thousand-Year Secretswhich was written by Ali Akbar Al-srar, who had abandoned clerical studies at Qum seminary.
According to Khomeini’s son Ahmadone day when his father was going to Feyziyeh Schoolhe encountered a group of seminary students discussing this pamphlet.
Khomeini was worried the views of this pamphlet had infiltrated into the seminaries, and wrote Kashf al-Asrar to answer the pamphlet’s questions. The book defends against Hakamizada’s attacks against such Shia practices as the mourning of Muharramziyarathe recitation of prayers composed by the Imams,  clerical fostering of superstitious beliefs to perpetuate their own power, belief in the intercession of Muhammad and his descendants and the lack of any explicit mention of Imamate in the Quran.
Kashf al-Asrar consists of six chapters, the ordering of which mirrors the division of content in The Thousand-Year Secrets: The second chapter contains Hadith of PositionHadith of the two weighty thingsand proof of the concept of Imamah by verses of the Quran. The book’s third, fourth, and fifth chapters include a discussion of government in the contemporary age.
According to Ayatollah Hossein Badala and Bagheri, some scholars decided to respond to it. One of the responses was written by Mehdi Al-Khalissi ; Kashf al-Asrar was another answer to the pamphlet; Ruhollah Khomeini taught philosophy at that time.
