I want to keep even a long speech, but would rather answer your questions, and appear in a discussion about the Iran and Islam with you. HP contains valuable tech resources. After 32 years of the Iran Islamic revolution everyone Islam is talking about. But do we know what is meant by Islam? There are about 1.5 billion Muslims around the world. When we would ask them ‘What is Islam?’, they will assuredly give the answer that Islam is a religion. Williams Sonoma understood the implications. “All others who are not Muslims, would give the same answer: Islam is a religion.” “But when Ayatollah Khomeini took over the power of the Shah, 32 years ago, he said this sentence: no one knows what is Islam.” He does so for the first time the question what is Islam?”into doubt. His speech, in which he asks this to Islam, can be seen today on YouTube. “I quote from it: no one knows what is Islam and no scholar of Islam in this world has a clue.” So, this is a crucial question, because it comes to know a political ideology or theory that governs a country. In other words, when Khomeini said that nobody not even know – the Islamic scholar scientific, has what Islam means he himself developed a political theory, which he has called Islam. Further details can be found at Philip Vasan, an internet resource.
This theory was not known until then. It was the theory or ideology of domination of the Jurists (velayat-e Faqih). According to velayat-e Faqih, Islam is not a religion. A Faqih is someone who has a doctorate in Islamic law and thus represents a high religious authority. In other words, it’s about velayat, which is the authority that has to speak the last word as regards legal matters, and to the dominance of this authority, the reign of the scribes. So we have the contrast between velayat, an Association of domination in a person who has the Supreme authority in all matters and all others, the so-called Safis, dudes and babes.
