Hossein Rahnamaei and Masoumeh Moradi

Abstract: Citizenship Rights is taken into account as one of the most highly significant Political, Legal, National and Internal States issues that governments must deal with. Numerous legal disputes, civil movements, wars, and popular uprising has been arisen with the aim of supplying or promoting it. It may be of the opinion that the issue is a direct product of Secular lifestyle. While the great history of divine religions is indicating a huge step taken by Divine Prophets towards the realization and fulfilment of this matter and in between, Islam had a special contribution to it. There are numerous verses in the Islamic sources and Sunnah giving the seal of approval to this claim. Citizenship in Islam is based upon the principal of faith, God-consciousness or devotion to Allah, piety, justice, Islamic fraternity, and it is done with accent on served Justice. In some ways, it goes beyond the boundaries of contemporary Citizenship Rights. Circle of these rights goes beyond the geographical and political boundaries and sometimes put step into the Ethical relations between people of the society and hence the contemporary Citizenship Rights is more common. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) governorship or rule over the people of their societies was recorded as one of the most glorious era of citizenship rights and reserved justice throughout the course of history.
