What are sources of legitimacy for Islamic Governance?

From Imam Khomeini’s viewpoint, neither force nor heredity can constitute a source for the legitimacy of an Islamic administration.

 Imam Khomeini, the leader of contemporary Muslim world, time and again emphasized two factors for legitimacy of an Islamic government: Divine legitimacy and public allegiance.

Imam states that an Islamic governance or government should follow footsteps of divine prophets and pursue their mission. Its main objective should be to lead people towards God and it must try to accomplish prosperity for people in this world and salvation hereafter.
