Abstract:-Anti-arrogance and denial of foreign domination are among the principles of Islamic foreign policy that Islamic states should put this principle at the forefront of their foreign policy. Anti-arrogance policy, with the victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran due to its importance and necessity in Islamic thought, was emphasized as one of the important principles of foreign policy in the Iranian constitution and the basis of the Iranian governments behavior with other governments in foreign relations. The manifestation of the principle of anti-arrogance in the Iranian constitution and foreign policy is rooted in the religious views of Imam Khomeini. According to Imam Khomeini, in the discourse of pure Muhammadan Islam (PBUH), anti-arrogance has a Qur’anic basis. Imam Khomeini considers the struggles of Prophet Moses (PBUH) with Pharaoh, Prophet Ibrahim (PBUH) with Nimrod and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) with the powerful of Hejaz as a type of struggle against arrogance and aristocracy. According to Imam Khomeini, the domination of the arrogant over the oppressed is rooted in the arrogance of the arrogant, the self-destruction of the dependent oppressed and the authoritarian rulers. Hence, the confrontation of the arrogant current with the oppressed is a permanent confrontation, and Islamic governments must put a protectionist strategy on the oppressed of the world in order to free them from the domination of the arrogant.Key words: Imam Khomeini, Pure Muhammadan Islam (PBUH), Foreign Policy, Anti-Arrogance.
