Islamic Solidarity in Infra-National Thoughts of Imam Khomeini

Brotherhood and goodwill among the Islamic governments


I hope that brotherhood, an Islamic brotherhood as ordained by the Qur’an arises among the Muslim governments. If such Islamic brotherhood came into existence among the Muslim countries, it would be a magnificent power that none of the world powers would be able to match.

June 11, 1979 [Khordad 21, 1358 AHS / Rajab 16, 1399 AH] Sahife-ye Imam, vol.8, p. 88




The philosophy of ‘Quds Day’

I call on the Muslims of the world as well as on all Muslim governments to join forces to cut down this usurper and its supporters. I invite Muslims all over the globe to consecrate the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan— which is a ‘day of fate’ and which could also become the day on which the fate of the Palestinian people might be determined—as ‘Quds Day’ and to proclaim the international solidarity of Muslims in support of the legitimate rights of the Muslim people (of Palestine). I pray to the Almighty for the victory of the Muslims over the infidels. May God’s peace, mercy and blessings be upon you.”

Political philosophy of Haajj

Such gatherings in general and H?ajj in particular have political dimensions of which one could be discussing the Muslims’ basic and political problems through sessions whose participants are clerics, intellectuals and those who are committed to Islam and resolving those problems on their way back to their countries. One of the responsibilities in this gathering is to call Muslims and Islamic nation to unity and to bridge their differences. This duty lies mostly with orators, speakers and writers. They must try to create a front so that Muslims might get free from demonic colonial powers through unison and the slogan of “there is no God but God” and conquer their problems through Islamic brotherhood… Today, Muslims’ first Kiblah1 has fallen into the hands of Israel, the malignant Middle East cancerous tumor, killing our Palestinian and Lebanese brothers with full force. Israel makes <p>use of all demonic means to cause disunion. Every Muslim must get equipped against Israel. Today, African Muslim countries are under the yoke of America and its agents and other strangers. Today, Africa should raise its innocent voice. They are, now, crying out submissively. Philosophy of Hajj should today respond to this innocent outcry. Moving around Ka‘bah signifies that you should not rely on anything other than God. Throwing stone at Aghabat2 means repelling human and genie Satan. Through stoning, you promise God to ward satanic superpowers off the Islamic countries. The Islamic world has been captured by America. I want you to take the divine message urging Muslims around the world not to serve anybody other than God. Oh! World Muslims and followers of the monotheistic ideology! Difference and disharmony is the cause of all problems with which Islamic countries wrestle. The secret of victory lays in unity of expression and harmony. God the Exalted says, “Cling to God’s rope and not get dispersed.” “Cling to God’s rope” is a call for harmony among all Muslims. Every Muslim should avoid dispersion and grouping for the sake of Islam. Dispersion is the root of all misery and backwardness. I implore God to grant dignity to Islam and Muslims and unity of expression to Muslims of the world.

September 29, 1979 [Mehr 7, 1358 AH / Dhu’l-Qa’dah 7, 1399 AH] Sahife-ye Imam, vol. 10, p.159




Formation of the Islamic Ummah by unity and divine uprising of the Muslims and the oppressed ones of the world

Oh, Muslims of the world! What happened to you who in early Islam, along with a few people split apart the big powers <p>and forged a great human Islamic Ummah; now with roughly one billion population and having huge reserves that is the biggest weapon against the enemy, such strongly enfeebled? Do you know all your misery is a result of disunity among your country leaders and you? Stand up and hold the Holy Qur’an and deliver yourselves to God, the Blessed and the Exalted, to rehabilitate your own glory and grandiosity of endeared Islam. Let’s give an ear to God’s sermon, when he says, “Say that I advise you to rise up two by two or one by one for God.” 1 All rise up for God; rise up individually against devilish army within your inward and generally in the face of satanic powers. If uprising and movement is raised for God, it will be victorious. Oh, Muslims of the world and the oppressed of the universe! Join forces to turn to God, seek asylum in Islam and attack those arrogant people who assault the nation’s rights. O’ Pilgrims of Ka‘bah! Join hands in divine places of standing and ask God Almighty for triumph of Islam, Muslims and the oppressed of the world.




Borders are not barrier to the Muslim unity

We are brothers of all Muslim nations. We shall share their joys and sorrows. Today our nation is facing a huge satanic superpower. These foreigners have illegitimately dominated the nations, Muslim nations and the eastern nations in general for the last three centuries… The Muslims of the world should unite. They should work together. They should not divide. They should not consider the borders as the separation of hearts. The borders are separate, but the hearts should be united.

November 30, 1979 [Azar 1, 1358 AHS / Muharram 2, 1400 AH] Sahife-ye Imam, vol.11, p.104
