Today, one of the most controversial issues in political society is national identity. The question that arises in the minds of researchers is whether Shiite scholars, as one of the main actors in the Iranian society of the Safavid period, have played a role in shaping the components of the national identity of this land? By examining the performance, positions and behavior of Shiite scholars in this period, their influence on the formation of components of Iranian national identity such as: land, centralized government, official religion, defense of territorial integrity, Persian language and literature, etc. will be evident; and the reliability and dynamism of some components of Iranian national identity is due to the performance of Shiite scholars; this study with an analytic-descriptive method on the basis of historical and data and evidences has explained the role played by Shiite scholars in this field. 
Keywords: National Identity, Shiite Scholars, Iran, Safavid.
