The Proof of Islam (Hujjat al-Islam), Imãm Abü Hamid bin Muhammad bin Mubammad al-Ghazãhi al-Tüsi is popularly known for his various works written on theology, philosophy logic, jurisprudence Sufism and in almost other disciplines of Islamic science. Nonetheless, only few are aware that this great scholar and theologian has written on administration, advising a ruler of his time as to how the Kingdom should be ruled in the wisest manner possible and with Justice. Not only that, in fact, al AlGhazali is regarded as one of the major contributors to the administration and management in the history of mankind which can be dated to as early as during the Sumerians period since 500 CE.1 This thesis has attempted as far as possible, to systematically expound the ethical administrate qualities as found in alGhazãli”s Nasihat al-Mulük. Obviously, this is not exhaustive and there are many other qualities not listed in this thesis, for one may refer to other works of the Imam for these.
