Imam Khomeini as the first political figure in contemporary Iranian history has had various mystical studies. The extent of these studies has been such as to influence his words and demeanor. In the present study, we seek to investigate the influence of mysticism on Imam Khomeini's speech. In the present study, we examine the mystical thoughts of Imam Khomeini using mythical evidence and let's look at how these ideas have affected their speech. (Mysticism) in the sense of (mystical and secret cognitive), is the epitome of lofty thoughts and affective practices for finding and joining the truth through (intuition), (inner experience) and (present). In the meantime, the ultimate goal is the pursuit of Islamic mysticism (فنای فی الله و لقاء حق). Imam Khomeini's practical life and remarks are an example of his influence on mystical teachings. The source and root of Imam's mysticism is Islam and the teaching of Shiite Imams. The impact of these cases on his speech is very strong. In order to understand the meaning of some of Imam Khomeini's recommendations, one must examine his mystical thoughts and teachings that we can understand the meaning of some of his words. His works are the most important source in this regard.
