It is evident that the rights of all persons, regardless of their minority status, also persons belonging to minorities included as individuals in a society. Minority rights is one of the most important issues of the international community and human rights issues of concern to our world. Today, in United Nations and its specialized agencies, much effort is done to provide a precise definition and recognition of rights for minorities, but the results have not been impressive. In Islam, the rights of minorities, especially religious minorities is considered. They profit by various rights including political, social, civil and etc. rights that the sum of these rights causes their human dignity be considered and their minority identity being forever. What is certain is that the Holy Prophet was implemented the respect for minority rights in his practice and behavior as far as he concluded pact with some of these minorities under the title “conscience pact”. It should be noted that national sovereignty, territorial integrity, political independence as well as national unity and national security are fundamental and inalienable rights of every government and in fact, are survival of the government and has direct and close relationships with its life, therefore, in command of Hazrat Ali (AS) says the Malek: people that you govern them, make acquainted them with pure facts of Islamic and put them on your end perfection of traverse, because every rightful persons can abuse of their rights and according to the position that Islam give them, violate the rights of others, causing disruption of public order and provide social moral corruption. According to the words of Imam Ali, we should be used carefully consideration in legislation for the rights of minorities that do not undermine the faith of the community and Islamic state.
