In this paper, we study Imam Ali’s way of management in order to derive some principles common to education and administration. Our hypothesis is that philanthropy constitutes the pillar of His thought, words, and behaviors. We shall give reference to His sayings in Nahj al Balaghah to establish our point. We shall concentrate only on a number of Imam Ali’s sayings concerning economic administration of society. We take it for granted that Nahj al Balaghah contains His words.
