Islam’s Objectives



Based on what we have said in in previous sections it can be said that piety and truth seeking dominate Islam’s religious politics. Providing material welfare, dignity and freedom based on piety and within the framework of truth and justice seeking are among the medium-term objectives of the Islamic government. Guiding people and attaining ultimate happiness are its ultimate purposes.

Due to ontological and epistemological basics of Islam, piety and eschatology are not opposed to material development, and the development of the terrestrial world does not prevent otherworldly happiness; proper administration of worldly affairs can be conductive to otherworldly objectives.

As the supreme institution that pursues public benefit, the Islamic government can never be indifferent towards abnormalities and plunder of noble human capitals, such as faith and ethical principles. Refusing to carry out the duty of educating and guiding people is same as betraying them, just as negligence in the face of violating individual and social rights and the rights of social classes is an unforgivable sin.
