The Subject of "justice" has long been one of the most important issues and the special concern of man and thinkers in various fields of study. Justice ensures the life and survival of social systems and maintains the continuity of organizations and the consistency of the different organizational elements, while injustice leads to their disintegration and decline. On the other hand, one of the main Functions of management is to motivate employees, i.e. to create and strengthen inner force in the staff, which contributes to the exhibition and continuation of certain behaviors. Justice is the most important factor which motivates the working staff. All three types of justice (i.e. distributive, procedural, and interactional) have a direct impact on the motivation of human resources. Using a descriptive-analytical method, this paper seeks to show what, according to Nahjul Balaghah, the effect of "distributive justice" on the motivation of human resources is. The research findings show that "distributive justice", in the sense of "fairness in the division of labor, the selection of human resource, the payment and distribution of rewards and punishment" directly affects the motivation of human resources of an organization.

­Key words: justice, distributive justice, motivation, human resources, Nahj ul-Balaghah.

Therefore, a thorough analysis and examination of these dimensions can play an important role in creating an organizational structure and the effective management of an organization. The purpose of this paper is to investigate and analyze the dimensions of the structure of the cultural art center of the Islamic Propagation Office of Qom Seminary, a center which is intended to contribute, through art work, to effective and inclusive propagation.

The center's responsibility is stimulating educational activities, holding formal conferences, holding meetings with art critics, making use of art in propagation and presenting strategies for using art in religious propagation. A standard questionnaire was used to identify the structural dimensions, including concentration, formalization and complexity as the structural dimensions and mechanical or organic dimension of the cultural art center. The research results indicate that the cultural- art center shows a tendency towards becoming an organic structure. Moreover, the analysis of the structure of the center shows that the center is an institution with moderate centralization, upper intermediate formalization and a lower intermediate complexity.

Key words: organizational structure, complexity, formalization, centralization, cultural art center of propagation office.

Planning, which is one of the most important tasks of management, is given special attention by Islamic sources and teachings. Organizational goals in planning can be achieved in many ways. From the material non-divine perspective, the only important thing is to achieve the goals, and it is not very important how or according to what principles and rules the goals would be achieved, just like what Machiavellians believe, that is, using any possible means for achieving one’s goals can be justified! But according to Islamic view, particularly the holy Qur'an, achieving a goal requires observing several principles and rules and observing these principles and rules is regarded even more important that achieving the very goals. Therefore, using a "descriptive-analytical" method and making a careful study of the holy Quran, the present study seeks to provide an explanation of the Qur'anic view point of the principles and rules governing the way of achieving the goals in planning. It elaborates on such principles as the legitimacy of the means, hard efforts, avoidance of hasty decisions, divine support, trust in God, supplication, hope, patience and endurance and considers them as the principles governing the way of achieving the goals in planning.

 Key words: planning, principles, way to achieve goals, the holy Quran.

Today, emphasis on knowledge and information is among the most fundamental features of smart organizations. Undoubtedly, an all-encompassing attention to organizational sciences that translates into the development of human resources within organizations will be the driving force behind the accomplishment of lofty goals that societies have determined for their excellence and growth. One of these organizational sciences is knowledge management. Knowledge management is the systematic process of identifying, storing, retrieving and distributing individuals’ knowledge within the organization for public use in order to improve the quality and efficiency of decision making. Meanwhile, the memory and historical background of communities are of great importance in following such approaches, in the sense that the great value and importance that societies inherently place on knowledge and science will lead to greater appeal of these sciences. This paper attempts to investigate the religious roots of knowledge based on the illuminated verses of the Qur'an and the traditions of the infallible Imams as well as the logical process referred to today as "knowledge management”.


Key words: the Quranic verses, knowledge, traditions of infallible Imams, knowledge management.
