The notion of commanding right and forbidding wrong is one
of the notable values in Islam. This has been emphasized in
verse 104 of surah Ali ‘Imran : “Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining right and forbidding wrong”. This article is about the imâm as an agent of forbidding wrong and as an agent of wrongdoing. It aims to make an important contribution to the study of administrative ethics in Islamic imamship. It explains how the imâm plays its role in the society as of commanding good and forbidding wrong. It also examines the wrongdoing of imams and the ethics of commanding and forbidding the imâm.
