Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Politik - Internationale Politik - Region: Naher Osten, Vorderer Orient, Note: 2.0, Freie Universitat Berlin, 19 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: ca. 7000 Worter, Abstract: 1. Einleitung Um auch heute noch die aussenpolitische Stellung des Iran im Gefuge der muslimischen Welt verstehen zu konnen, kommt man nicht umhin, sich mit einer seiner wichtigsten theoretischen Grundlagen zu beschaftigen: der Einheitsidee Khomeinis und dem Revolutionsexport. In dieser Arbeit sollen dementsprechend Erklarungsmuster gesucht werden, um die Isolation Irans gegenuber seinen muslimischen Nachbarlandern des Nahen und Mittleren Ostens verstehen zu konnen. Dabei spielen die Differenzen zwischen Sunniten und Schiiten eine zentrale Rolle, da in der historischen und religiosen Entwicklung der muslimischen Welt die immanenten Grunde fur die Spaltung und bisherige Nichtuberwindung dieses latenten" Konfliktes liegen. Wohl kam es nie zu einem Konflikt, der dem christlichen Aquivalent des 30-jahrigen Krieges nahe kame, dennoch handelt es sich um ein disparates Verhaltnis, welches sich heute in den Lebenswirklichkeiten von Muslimen meist in Nichtbeachten und Ignorieren ausdruckt, in jungerer Vergangenheit aber auch in Unterdruckung, z.B. in Irak und Saudi-Arabien. Dieses Verhaltnis ist von daher interessant, als dass man nicht von einem offenen Konflikt zwischen Sunniten und Schiiten ausgehen kann, der z.B. in eine Form des Burgerkrieges gefuhrt hatte, sondern von einem Nebenher der beiden Religionsgruppen, welches sich zwischen den Polen der gegenseitigen Nichtbeachtung und gewalttatigen Auseinandersetzungen und zwischen okumenischen Tendenzen und theologischer Verscharfung der Graben bewegt. Es wird hier die These vertreten, dass ein tieferes Verstandnis der Spaltung zwischen den beiden Gruppen notwendig ist, um die Bedeutung der Einheitsidee bei Khomeini genauso wie die Folgen fur die aussenpolitischen Bezieh

The Little Green Book is a collection of fatawah handed down by the most prominent and arguably one of the most influential Muslim clerics in modern history; the Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Ruhollah Mosavi Khomeini, commonly known as the Ayatollah Khomeini. Fatawah (the plural of fatwah) are Islamic religious decrees sent down by Muslim religious leaders. Since Islam demands that Muslims abide by Sharia - Islamic law as individuals and as a society, these fatawah are not simply religious insights or advice. They are legal pronouncements, and define the law of the land in an Islamic country. In his unrivaled role as Iran's Supreme Leader and the highest-ranking cleric for Shi'a Muslims, the Ayatollah Khomeini's fatawah guided the lives of more Shi'a Muslims than did any other Islamic leader throughout history

Die einzigen Überlebenden dieses Terroranschlags sind Gibril Farishta und Saladin Chamcha, zwei indische Schauspieler, die buchstäblich vom Himmel fallen und wie durch ein Wunder unversehrt bleiben. Doch nach dem Absturz gehen seltsame Dinge mit ihnen vor: Der Muslim Gibril zeigt immer mehr Ähnlichkeit mit dem Erzengel Gabriel, während sich Saladin, der stets seine Herkunft verleugnete, zu einem Abbild des Teufels entwickelt.

Chapters: Political thought and legacy of Khomeini, Islamic Government: Governance of the Jurist, British-Ruhollah Khomeini conspiracy theory, Islamic Movement of Iran, Council of Islamic Revolution, Khadijeh Saqafi, Islam and Revolution. Excerpt: Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Mostafavi Moosavi Khomeini (Persian: , Persian pronunciation: , 24 September 1902 - 3 June 1989) was an Iranian religious leader and politician, and leader of the 1979 Iranian Revolution which saw the overthrow of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran. Following the revolution and a national referendum, Khomeini became the country's Supreme Leader-a position created in the constitution as the highest ranking political and religious authority of the nation-until his death. Khomeini was a marja ("source of emulation," also known as a Grand Ayatollah) in Twelver Shi'a Islam, but is most famous for his political role. In his writings and preachings he expanded the Shi'a Usuli theory of velayat-e faqih, the "guardianship of the jurisconsult (clerical authority)" to include theocratic political rule by the Islamic jurists. In the Muslim world abroad he was described as the "virtual face in Western popular culture of Islam," known for his support of the hostage takers during the Iranian hostage crisis and his fatwa calling for the death of British citizen Salman Rushdie. Khomeini has been referred to as a "charismatic leader of immense popularity," considered a "champion of Islamic revival" by Shia scholars. Khomeini is officially known as Imam Khomeini inside Iran and amongst his followers internationally, and Ayatollah Khomeini amongst others.

Reinventing Khomeini

The Struggle for Reform in Iran

Reinventing Khomeini offers a new interpretation of the political battles that paved the way for reform in Iran. Brumberg argues that these conflicts did not result from a sudden ideological shift; nor did the election of President Mohammad Khatami in 1997 really defy the core principles of the Islamic Revolution. To the contrary, the struggle for a more democratic Iran can be traced to the revolution itself, and to the contradictory agendas of the revolution's founding father, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. A complex figure, Khomeini was a fervent champion of Islam, but while he sought a Shi'ite vision of clerical rule under one Supreme Leader, he also strove to mesh that vision with an implicitly Western view of mass participatory politics. The intense magnetism and charisma of the ayatollah obscured this paradox. But reformers in Iran today, while rejecting his autocratic vision, are reviving the constitutional notions of government that he considered, and even casting themselves as the bearers of his legacy. In Reinventing Khomeini, Brumberg proves that the ayatollah is as much the author of modern Iran as he is the symbol of its fundamentalist past.

This book explains why Khomeini was able to lead the Iranian people in their revolution against the Shah. Combining the sociological study of charisma by Max Weber and the critical psychology of Erich Fromm, Byrd develops a theory of "prophetic charisma" to explain Khomeini's unique qualifications for leading the revolution.

Ayatollah ʿAli Hosseini Khamenei, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, is one of the most controversial and influential Muslim leaders in the world today. As Iran’s main decision-maker, his theocratic ideology and decisions carry global consequences. The Political Ideology of Ayatollah Khamenei is the first book to identify and analyze the development and evolution of the theocratic ideology of the Supreme Leader from 1962 to 2014, using his own writings, speeches, and biographies, as well as literature published in the Islamic Republic of Iran. This work provides new insights into Khamenei’s political thought and behavior and their impact on Iran’s domestic, regional, and international policies. Correlating the development of Khamenei’s personality, character, and political behavior with Iran’s internal and external challenges, this study explores key issues of the Middle East region, in particular Iran’s political posture toward Israel, the United States, and the Muslim world, and the diplomatic crises unfolding over Iran’s nuclear development program. This work provides a comprehensive chronological and thematic survey of Khamenei’s life. This book will be of interest to students, scholars, researchers, diplomats, and policymakers focusing on Middle Eastern politics, Iranian affairs, Islamic studies, and international relations; and could serve as an essential resource for those striving to understand Iran’s policies toward Israel, the United States, and the Muslim world, as shaped by its supreme autocrat.
