The Armed Forces

Rules and Relations

(Wise Sayings of Imam Khomeini)


o Our disciplinary-military forces and the Sepah-e Pasdaran [Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps] are armed with the divine power. Their weapon is the "Allahu akbar" and there is no weapon like it in the world.

o   The Army, the Sepah, the Bastj (voluntary mobilization forces) and other

armed military and disciplinary forces as well as the people's militia are followers of masters who have sacrificed everything they have for faith and the objective, and earned honors for Islam and its great followers.

o   You””Army. Pasdaran, Bastj, gendarmerie, police and all armed people's

militia and all people who sacrifice your lives for Islam and Iran””be alert and set Islam as the standard for your actions.

o   More noble conduct is. perhaps, necessary in all the armed forces than in

anywhere else.

o   The soldier and Pasdar [guard] who says his night prayers in the trench or

rifle-pit fights as a lion.

o   Non-observance of the Army and Pasdar disciplines weakens the armed


o   Obedience to an Islamic commander is necessary by the command of

Islam; violation of this rule is interdicted.

o   An army without discipline is no army!

o   All the armed and disciplinary forces including the Army, the Pasdaran,

the Basj, the gendarmerie, etc. must not enter any political party or group,

and must avoid all political games and squabbles.

o   Anyone entering a party or group must leave the armed forces.

o   Insure that politics do not make inroads into the Sepah for if it does, it will

lose its military dimensions.

o I order the military heads not to discuss any political issue in the Army! o Enteing politics is tantamount to the loss of military prestige.

o The Army must guard the independence and security of the country.
