A Clarification of Questions
By Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Mousavi Khomeini, Translated by J.
Westview Press, 1984, 432 pp.

Ayatollah Khomeini's authoritative answers to some three thousand questions governing the conduct of believers in the Shi'ite faith of Iran. They cover everything from purity and prayer to commercial practices. These rules may be of greater interest to theology students than to those of international relations, but they do have relevance for the latter in such matters as relations between Muslims and non-Muslims and in the fact that religion and politics in present-day Iran are inseparable.
