Religion and Politics in Mottahari’s Thought
Mehdi Agh Brari
According to Mottahari, Islam has high capacity to participate in politics. The religion plays a significant role in the life. To establish a government is part of the Prophet’s plan. The link between religion and politics is necessary. So it is essential to analyze the non- religious movements scientifically. In order to understand Mottahari’s thought, we should pay attention to the disorder, the diagnosis of pain, order and activities of Muslims. Mottahari describes Islamic government as a popular government, which could be compatible with present conditions and human progress. He believes that mechanisms like elections, parties’ competition are compatible with Islam.
