The Symbolic Reflection of the Islamic Revolution in Islamic Countries

Document Type: Original Article


The Islamic Revolution of Iran has included symbolic aspects. The fundamental question of the article is that, what are the symbolic aspects of the Islamic Revolution of Iran and why the Islamic Republic of Iran has used these features to influence Islamic countries? Since the bearers of the word and the symbolic goods have the most legitimacy in social and political fields, this revolution has influenced Islamic countries through language and spiritual messages. Therefore, the hypothesis of the article was that the Islamic Republic of Iran, having relied on the symbolic aspects of the Islamic Revolution movement, soon passed the geographical boundaries and placed the Muslim world under the influence of the power of Islamic-Shiite symbols. As a result, Iran based on the intellectual and cultural capital of great minds and clerics, and the creation of a symbolic struggle, provided grounds for reflecting the Islamic Revolution in Islamic countries.
