Abstract: 
In most of political texts and writing there is difference between meaning of two words OMMAT (community) and MELLAT (nation). According to common view the main criterion in defining OMMAT word includes its religion and belief aspects and other elements and geographical properties such as territory, population, governance are not taken account for this word and extra territory meaning of this words is used. Meanwhile the concept of nation word means localism view (spatialist approach) and this word is taken account as people groups regardless to common belief who reside in defined territory whit common governance, history and customs. In this paper despite common imagination it has been emphasized that OMMAT (community) word has tow sided meaning which includes localism particularies and extra localism properties hence in interpreting local view both words (community and nation) can be considered synonym and same.
