Imam Khomeini defined justice as essence of all virtues

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic, sought to implement justice on all levels including individual and social spheres in the society.

There is no doubt that justice-seeking has been a natural disposition and is desire of all human beings regardless of their race and faith.

However, the human societies, in accordance with their growth and capacities, have paved a variety of ways to accomplish this value throughout the history.  

 Imam Khomeini states that justice is of divine orientation and seeks its application and implementation on individual and social levels.  

The leader of contemporary Muslim world also stressed that divine messengers and leaders had attached great significance to justice. According to Imam, prophets are real and perfect role-model of justice as they had spared no effort for its implementation.  

In his famous book titled “hosts of intellect and ignorance”, Imam Khomeini defines justice a moderate way which frees man from any imbalances in behavior and conduct.

From Imam's viewpoint, justice is considered as essence and mother of all virtues. 

Imam said time and again that a monotheistic society would never accept any type of injustice. 

Imam maintained that the justice prompted by messengers had divine origin and therefore, following footsteps of the holy prophet of Islam would be a kind of submission to God, the Almighty. 

Imam Khomeini, the spiritual leader of the contemporary world, emphasized that the holy prophet and his infallible successor Imam Ali (peace be upon them) had tried to implement justice in all perspectives during early days of Islam.

Imam Khomeini used to maintain that Imam Ali (PBUH), the truthful infallible successor of the holy prophet of Islam, is the appearance of the absolute justice, the marvel of the world.

According to Imam Khomeini, in the early days of Islam, the ideal Islamic government ruled twice: first at the time of the Holy Prophet Muhammad and secondly when Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (peace be upon them) governed the Muslim societies and set unprecedented divine patterns.
