*Hassan Salmabadi, Raza Salmabadi, Bagher Riyahimehr, Raza Niroomand


The economic policies of any government is a manifestation of its thoughts and behaviors in solving the, social and economic problems of the society. In the Islamic history, the government of Imam Ali is known to be an outstanding government in this regard.

At the time when Imam Ali took the government in his hands the Islamic society was in an ideal economic situation thanks to the wealth and riches that were gained as the results of the past Islamic conquests but at the same time many people of the society were facing harsh economic and financial problems. Therefore Imam Ali as soon as becoming the Caliphs of Islamic society halted the ongoing trend of Islamic conquests and started the fair and equal distribution of the income gained in these conquests and the property that was confiscated and the wealth that was gained through illegal means. He made these actions, a first priority in his economic reform plan. These efforts of Imam Ali in his very short tenure of government reformed the economic structure developed by the previous governments and presented a role model for economic policies based on the Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (p b u h) that was also accompanied by great successes.

In this article ,by presenting the economic reform plan of IMAM Ali (as) and the executive solutions regarding its implementation, an effort has been made to introduce (as much as possible) the priorities for the implementation of Imam Ali economic system and to present it as role model for the  economy  of resistance .
