Islamic Awakening in the Middle East and North Africa has revived the importance of founding an Islamic government in recent years and has provided an opportunity to review the ideas of Islamic scholars on the foundation of an Islamic government. Although the Iranian Islamic Republic model was considered in the first years after the revolution among Islamic scholars but as a result of internal conditions, regional, extra-regional and international problems, and new western models slightly lost some of its popularity. Many scholars believe that Imam Khomeyni, as the theorist and leader of the successful experience of Islamic Revolution, and Seyed Qotb, as the inspirer of many Islamic movements in the Arab world, played an important role in conceptualization of the Islamic Government in modern world.
