The views and thoughts of Imam Khomeini indicated that his political thought is undoubtedly inspired by Shia faith and Fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence), i.e., the school of the Qur'an and Etrat. However, we should not ignore the impact of socio-political conditions and developments in society on their formation because using the teachings of the Qur'an and Etrat as well as Ijtihad, Shia jurisprudence can be flexible following various events and conditions of the community. The present study aimed to explain the reasons for the change and evolution of Imam Khomeini's views over time by comparing his views on the political system and the role of fuqahā (Islamic jurists) in the system building. To this aim, two important works of Imam have been studied, namely "Kashf al-Asrar," written in the early 1320s SH and "Velayat-e Faqih" introduced in the late 1340s SH. Based on the theoretical framework of Spragens’ crisis, the hypothesis of the study says that although Imam Khomeini has faced a similar crisis in each period, in his view, the severity of the crisis and, most importantly, the causes of the crisis are completely different and have led to different solutions. Consequently, Imam Khomeini considers the inefficiency of the rulers as the cause of the situation in Kashf al-Asrar, and the key is the supervision of fuqahā. But in Velayat-e-Faqih, the cause of the problem is recognized as the political system's inefficiency. The answer is to overthrow the existing system and establish an Islamic government based on Velayat-e Faqih

The Islamic Republic of Iran and the Republic of Georgia underwent a revolutionary transformation in 1979 and 2003; However, there are fundamental differences between the two revolutions, including in ideology, the extent and scope of revolutionary developments, the nature of social forces and movements, the nature of the former and post-political regimes, and the direction of their new foreign policy. The country has been very influential in both domestic and foreign arenas. With this in mind, this article seeks to examine why the Iranian revolution became social in 1979 while the Georgian revolution in 2003 was limited to the political sphere. It seems that the Islamic Revolution of Iran in 1979, in response to the quasi-modernism of the Pahlavi period and inspired by cultural and identity components, led to the formation of a discourse called self-return, which realized such a possibility without changing political, social, economic and Culture was not possible. But the color revolution in Georgia, under the influence of components of historical memory resulting from the suppression of nationalist and independence-seeking tendencies, saw a change in the ruling political structure as sufficient to achieve this goal. Data and information of this research have been collected through documentary (library) method and have been analyzed using comparative analysis method. In order to examine the above question and hypothesis, this comparative study first takes a brief look at the background of the formation of the two revolutions and then examines their possible differences and similarities.

To this aim, the present study has explored the characteristics of the specific righteous state builders based on the opinion of the wise Leader of the Revolution by examining the basis of Imam Khomeini's transcendent education.

The concept of monotheistic (tawḥīdi) society is in fact a reflection of the economic and political dimensions derived from the cultural-epistemological dimensions derived from the social and objective interpretation of monotheism. This concept was a response to the lack of research on the social characteristics of Islamic monotheism, which was analyzed by contemporary Muslim thinkers in the context of the domination and military and intellectual invasion of foreign colonialism and the deviation of Islamic societies. Ayatollah Khamenei (1939) was one of these thinkers who had focused on this concept before the Islamic Revolution until now, and the purpose of this article is to address this concept in his mind. Therefore, the body of research is divided into three parts and with a library, documentary and analytical method, in the first part epistemological and theoretical indicators, in the second part to economic dimensions and in the third part to the political characteristics of the monotheistic society are discussed. In this regard, in the first part, concepts such as the high importance of monotheism in Islamic thought, monotheistic worldview and ontology are introduced. The second part deals with issues such as a monotheistic society without class differences, economic justice and the elimination of poverty. In the third part, Ayatollah Khamenei discusses issues such as the role of monotheism in human freedom, the role of monotheism in denying ungodly governments and proving Islamic rule and foreign policy in a monotheistic society.
