The Literary Works and Compilations of Imam Khomeini


Dozens of valuable books and literary works by Imam Khomeini on such subjects as ethics, gnosticism, jurisprudence, principles of religion, philosophy, as well as political and social matters remain, a number of which have not yet been published. Unfortunately, some of his valuable treatises and compilations were lost during removal from one rented accommodation to another and as a result of the attack of the Shah’s SAVAK agents on his house and library. Following is a list of his works and compilations in the order in which they were written. Each one of them really requires a detailed explanation, however, this is beyond the scope of this biography.

Up until the present time, 1126 speeches, 470 directives and ordinances, 367 letters to political and religious personalities outside the country, 420 letters to Iranian political and religious figures, and 350 messages exist in the archives of the Institute for the Compilation and Publication of the Works of Imam Khomeini, which will gradually be published in the anthology entitled ?Kowthar?.

The 22 volumes of the Sahifah-ye Noor series, together with the one-volume edition of Miftah Sahifah which is the reference book and index for the 22-volume series Sahifah-ye Noor constitute the most comprehensive collection of Imam’s speeches, messages, letters and directives to have been published so far.

That which is presented after this introduction is Imam Khomeini’s last will and testament which is of a religion-political nature and which according to the Islamic tradition and in keeping with the ways of the prophets and pious people, he wrote a few years before his demise, so that his passing, like his life, may inspire awakening, awareness and movement.

May peace be upon you and the mercy and blessings of God.
