Islamic Solidarity in Infra-National Thoughts of Imam Khomeini

Ummah-Focused Approach to the Problems of the Muslim World


Islamic government provides ground for unity of the Islamic Ummah In order to attain the unity and freedom of the Muslim peoples, we must overthrow the oppressive governments installed by the imperialists and bring into existence an Islamic government of justice that will be in the service of the people.

 The formation of such a government will serve to preserve the disciplined unity of the Muslims; just as Fatimah az-Zahra (A.S) said in her address: “The Im?mate exists for the sake of preserving order among the Muslims and replacing their disunity with unity”.

Islamic Government (Guardianship of Jurist) p. 27


Unity of the Islamic countries against Zionism

We are always ready to defend Islam, the Muslim countries and their independence. Our programs are the programs of Islam: unity of expression of the Muslims; unity of all Muslim countries; brotherhood with all Muslim schools of thought all around the world; alliance with all; all Muslim governments around the world, against Zionism, against Israel, against the imperialist governments. June 5, 1964 [Khord?d 15, 1343 AHS / Muh?arram 24, 1384 AH] Sahife-ye Imam, vol. 1, p. 336




Relying on Qur’an

All we are saying is that you should be united; all Muslims should be united; we do not have relations with that one,1 with you,2 nor with anybody else, and yet we have relations with everybody. We see you all as being the same. All Muslims, in our view, if they act upon Islamic laws, are dear to us. We hold dear the nation of Islam, whether it be Turkish, Arab, Iranian, or from any other country, Africa, America, or wherever. We are saying join hands together; do not make a triple front3 and join Israel against another alliance, and the other Muslim countries too should not make an alliance against you. You should all form one alliance, you are all Muslims, and you should rely on the Qur’an.

September 9, 1964 [Shahrivar 18, 1343 AHS / Jamadi al-Awwal 2, 1384 AH] Sahife-ye Imam, vol. 1, p. 381


Unity and solidarity of the Muslims

There is no doubt that the duty of the Muslims who reside in the remotest places in the world is (equal) to the duty that the Muslim nation of Palestine has. Muslims are like a single body and they all are equal in terms of the general responsibilities.1 Discord and racism have no place here and there is no distinction between the Muslim nations but piety and abstinence. “Lo! The noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware.”2 “Allah is sufficient for us! Most Excellent is He in Whom we trust!
