Due to an appropriate location in a geographically favorable position, the Islamic Republic of Iran has positively and efficiently entered the international political scene. In one hand, geopolitical concessions and the elements of national power, on the other, could be effective in turning the potential geopolitical elements of national power into the actual elements of national power for achieving effective national defense. In this way, the ideals of the Islamic Revolution, which have been arisen from the menu of the Great Architect of the Shiite Islamic Revolution Leader, will be achieved; and the Islamic Iran as an Islamic country will become a template country among other countries as a world power and this could pave the way for global governance of Hazrat Mahdi. In this paper, researchers, posing the question of how the geopolitics of Islamic Republic of Iran would have an impact upon the national power, carried out their research using a descriptive-analytic method. First, by studying the books and articles and taking notes and reviewing documents (monographs) and research papers available in the library and official documents held by organizations and institutions related to the field of study, the required data were collected. The data were completed in two phases using field study and development and distribution of questionnaires among scholars and experts of the research population. And then, the data were analyzed. The results indicate how elements, concepts, opportunities and geopolitical threats of the Islamic Republic of Iran in two dimensions of location and space around the geographic boundaries of the country affect the national power. And also how the other geopolitical factor, i.e., power, affects the Islamic world and other religions worldwide and has an impact upon the elements of national power. In this way, getting the optimum advantage of the use of existing opportunities, the threats could be turned into an opportunity and eventually become the goals of the sacred system of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
