This paper studies in a descriptive way Imam Khomeini’s ten-year views on economic policies as compared with related policies in the tenure of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Imam Ali (pbuh). This study intends to find an answer to the question of “What similarities are there between Imam Khomeini’s ten-year leadership and the tenure of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Imam Ali (pbuh) in terms of economic policies?”, claiming that the three governments resorted to settlement method.
Findings of this paper indicate that Imam Khomeini, as the Founder and Leader of the Islamic Revolution, has set the model of Islamic Republic based on early Islamic government. In introducing the model of Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini points to the successful early Islamic government and underscores his entire objective behind establishment of the government as social justice. Therefore, based upon the studies, both governments have sought establishing social justice in the society, although the two governments are different in terms of time and pace, social fabric, structure and type of the government, ways for financing the government and their economic methods. However, the two governments have contextually followed one similar path. Resorting to its findings, the paper proves its hypothesis.
