Imam Khomeini stressed need for purification along education

Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic through his historic messages and theological works stressed that the education will be useful when it is accompanied with purification and the training of the mind and ethics in universities and other centers of learning.

Imam also stressed the need of purification along education in places where the religious ulama’ are present, or in places where non-religious teachers are present.

According to Imam, In Islam, ethical teachings are also political ones.

This same commandment in the Quran saying that the believers are brothers to one another is an ethical, social and political order.

Imam once said in this regard through a historic message released on August 18, 1980 as following:

 If the believers, various ethnic groups who are in Islam and believe in God and the Prophet of Islam, act in a fraternal manner with one another, this will create affection among all classes and groups in the same way that a brother feels affection towards his own brother.

This in addition to being a great Islamic ethical rule with great ethical consequences; it is also a great social commandment with important consequences.

Imam also explained that knowledge-bearer who is not as yet purged and purified, will pose more danger than the ignorant person. If an ignorant person is corrupt, he will only harm himself but a corrupt know­ ledge-bearer will corrupt and contaminate the whole world.

Purifications is prior to teaching and learning. The Prophet (of Islam) is assigned to purge, to educate and to prepare the 'selves' and then teach them the Book and Wisdom.

If the Book and Wisdom are not accompanied by education and purification, a creature will come out such as those in the Senate and National Assembly during the pre-Revolution era, i.e. the deputies of the houses of the Parliament during the time of the deceased Shah.
