Imam Khomeini believes in a purely political nature for pure Muhammadan Islam, not American Islam, and believes that Muslims must conquer the key strongholds of the world. This conquest is possible with the formation of a new Islamic civilization (importance). Since power plays a key role in the establishment and protection of civilization, the issue of the article is to examine the role of power in the establishment of a new Islamic civilization in Imam Khomeini's system of thought (issue). From Imam Khomeini's point of view, civilization has not only material and difficult dimensions, but according to his ontological and anthropological system, civilization, in addition to the material dimension, has layers of beliefs, tendencies, behaviors and structures. These three layers are completely intertwined and interconnected to form structures that fit together (theoretical framework). In Imam Khomeini's thought, civilization has eight types and has four layers. Cultural power refers to the layer of fortifications and tendencies, political and economic power refers to the layer of beliefs and behaviors. Cultural power is more important than other pillars of civilization and is the foundation of other pillars, and with the strengthening of cultural power, economic and political power increases, and with the weakening of culture and cultural power, other pillars are weakened. At the same time, if economic power or political power is weakened, the formation of civilization will be challenged (findings). From Imam Khomeini's point of view, the source of culture is Islam, and Islam is not one of the elements of civilization, but the civilization itself. The present article examines this approach in Imam Khomeini's political thought using the analytical-exploratory method and using the method of corresponding and obligatory signification obtained from the knowledge of logic and principles of jurisprudence (method).
