Management scholars have proposed a considerable variety of modus operands for the efficiency of Public administration, which are, due to their dependence on empirical perception, are incomplete and sometimes contradictory. These modus operands are incompatible with the Public administration in the organizations of Islamic society, due to the flaws and contradiction they have and because of the different intellectual and cultural views adopted by their scholars. Therefore, addressing the question relating to the characteristics of the modus operands for the efficiency of government administration by adopting the Islamic approach, the present paper studies Quranic verses deductively and refers to the invaluable Al—Mizan Commentary to interpret them and elaborate on their contents. The study shows that there are two types of modus operands: behavioral and structural which can help achieve the efficiency of government administration.

Key words: administration, government, efficiency, modus operands, Allamah.

Today, the routine Management and practical measures taken by the organizations and institutions, particularly the cultural ones, in our country have not been efficient beside the striking domestic and foreign developments in the cultural, social, political and economic fields; a kind of Management which cannot solve the country’s problems. The continuous inattention to the change of this kind of Management will result in material and spiritual loss. Lack of strategic administration is a serious threat to all the organizations and institutions of the country, including seminaries (centres of Islamic Education). Strategic administration helps, through strategic reflection and planning, to implement and evaluate strategies. Using an analytical approach and relying on an investigation into the documents, the present paper seeks to expound and evaluate the development in seminaries, in the light of the strategic administration of the fifth term of the High Council for Hawzah (2008 to 2013), on which the Supreme Leader repeatedly emphasized.

Key words: development of seminaries, strategic Management, strategic thinking, strategic planning, the fifth term of the High Council of Seminary.

Gender-based jobs are those jobs in which gender, in addition to other qualifications, is regarded as a condition for employment. Today, there are two views about gender-based jobs, which are at opposite extremes from each other. In the first view, the role of gender in the environment takes the place of the role of gender in job, and considers all jobs in Islam as gender-based. As a result, women are deprived of many resources and facilities within the society. Conversely, the extremist feministic view emphasize on the equality between the sexes. This view leads to family breakup, sexual harassment, humiliation of women and ignoring the economic and managerial role which man has in modern world.

Using a descriptive-analytical method and referring to the logical relations established by Islamic law, the present paper distinguishes between common jobs and gender-based jobs and between the role of gender in the environment and the role of gender in job. Twelve gender-based principles in addition to the prime principle of jobs are identified. They frame the policy of job for men and women.

Key words: gender, sex, Islam, relationship, job
