Sheykh Fazlullah Nuri was one of the most magnificent clergy. He tried to oppose to the influence of western opinions, and to protect linkage between Iran Muslimsby his gyratory and politic viewpoints specially the legitimate-seeking opinion. His movement against constitutionalist has some effects on his opinion about government in the absence era and cruel governor. So, Mr. Nuri preferred to select autocratic majesty of the Muslim king rather than condition government related to western opinion and he accepted the king as a legitimate king because the king was protecting the basis of Islam. This paper studies Sheikh’s opinion about this subject_ how much these two items ( Force and domination) could effect to legitimize the government_ by historical and analytical approach.
