The concept of revolutionary rationality in the words of Ayatollah Khamenei

   The concept of rationality is one of the important concepts that has been used a lot. Ayatollah Khamenei_ The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution_ pointed out the role of rationality in the ontological and epistemological foundations of Islam in several statements And the Islamic revolution of Iran was also called the "rational revolution" based on it, in such a way that the word rationality was one of the most used basic words in the His speeches.

Revolutionary rationality can be called a rationality that was formed in the context of the culture of the Islamic Revolution. For example, Imam Khomeini with regard to the factor of "religious rationality", considers the main indicator of the struggle against the Pahlavi Taghut regime to be the irrationality of that regime based on the logic of Islam.

 (Sahifah Imam, Vol. 29/5). Therefore, the Supreme Leader says: "The two main dimensions in the school of our honorable Imam are the dimension of spirituality and the dimension of rationality." (Statements on the 22nd anniversary of Imam Khomeini (RA), 03/14/90). By examining the issue of rationality in the statements of the supreme leader, the concept of rationality can be summarized under "revolutionary rationality". There are many examples and elements of revolutionary rationality in the statements of Ayatollah Khamenei, some of which are mentioned in the table below:

Therefore, they try to introduce material productions and consumer goods as criteria of rationality. The Islamic Revolution System is trying to introduce rationality in a comprehensive way. Therefore, fighting arrogance, defending the oppressed, standing up against enemies, defending religious and moral foundations, etc. are examples of rationality. These examples may not be rational in some systems.
