Every organization needs activities that are carried out by its members for each other, the organization, and customers/clients. Based on its value principles, every organization seeks to attain a model of organizational behavior that best enhances its effectiveness and efficiency. A behavioral model that is relevant to Islamic organizations is one that is based on Islamic brotherhood. Due to their fundamental differences with non-Islamic organizations, Islamic organizations should be managed using specific methods. The purpose of this study was to clarify the inclinational components of such a model, and its main question was “What are the inclinational components of the organizational behavior model based on Islamic brotherhood?” To this end, the researchers examined the Islamic books using grounded theory approach and obtained the inclinational components of the Islamic brotherhood model. These included the inclination to achieve God’s pleasure, eschatologism, leader-orientedness, the inclination to attract the divine grace in activities, unity, sympathy, kindness, optimism, benevolence, the sincere inclination to offer services, trustworthiness, and the control of desires and tendencies to create and maintain Islamic brotherhood.
