Seyyed Mahdi Alvani*, Mohammad Mahdi Naderi**


The policy of "redistribution" is among the issues discussed in the field of general economic policies. In this regard, the question which is particularly discussed is: is the aim of implementing such policies is for justice and does it help its establishment and expansion? Or conversely, adopting and implementing such policies as policy of redistribution is essentially against justice. Anti-justice nature of such policies as policy of redistribution is particularly explained in terms of their contradiction with and violation of man's freedom in ownership right. Relying on Quranic verses, traditions and Islamic sciences and using the method common in seminaries which is terminologically called deductive method and can be considered a kind documentary analysis, the present paper seeks prove two points: 1- Islam supports the policy of redistribution and use it to establish and expand social-economic justice; 2- this policy is not considered as a violation of man' freedom in enforcing his ownership right.

Key words: policy, redistribution, justice, real (personal) ownership, conventional ownership.

The Position of God-centrism in General Policy-Making

Seyyed Mohammad Hussein Hashemian*, 'Azizullah Khalili**


Attention to the principles and values of general policies exerts many positive and negative effects on general public's life. One of these principles is God-centrism in Islamic societies with monotheistic look, which has different influences on general policy-making. The present paper investigates the effect of God-centrism on general policies in its three theoretical, procedural and content dimensions. The role of God-centrism in general policy-making means that only the Most High God can make policy and that if someone makes policy he must have His permission. God-centrism in the process of policy-making is the opposite of anthropocentrism. God-centrism also plays role in the process of content analysis of general policies. God-centrism as a key parameter will be useful in the process of analyzing, assessing and evaluating general policies and their application.

Key words: general policy making, divinity, God-centrism, the process of policy making, content analysis of policies.
