Amir needs redemption in his life. He has spent his whole life with crushing guilt over his treatment of Hassan. When Rahim Khan tells Amir the truth about Hassan and Baba, Amir is even more plagued by guilt. Rahim offers Amir to begin to make aments or at least a chance "to be good again". Amir can rescue Sohrab and at least help his brother, Hassan, in this way.
