This paper analyzes the position and importance of Imamate from Imam Khomeini's point of view. To show the importance of this point, some subjects are referred to as: Imamate as a part of religion and divine deposit, introducing the death of the unfamiliar to Imam as the death of ignorance era, nonacceptibilty of prayers without acceptance of Imamate, imamate as the face and compliment of religion. The position of Imams in the world considering the formative vilayat and legislative one are the point of discussion in the second part of this paper. As being mentioned, Imam Khomeini with his mystical approach illustrates Imams as the caliph of Allah and the formative means of divine blessings in this world. He, considering the legislative vilayat, introduces Imams just like holy prophet as possessing the divine knowledge which gives them the right of legislative vilayat.
