What is the administrations of Islamic states? It is the historical phenomenon origin s from history, religion, culture, tradition, politic, geopolitical insinuation of Islamic nation . The history of organizations is the main part of the social and political history and the most important sign of social and political life and progress of human beings. The advent of Islam, besides establishing a new religion in the world, caused substantial and fundamental changes in the administrative systems and governmental institutes and organizations throughout the world. Bureaucracy and government in Islamic countries have domestic originality and Islamic foundation. Recommendations for governmental organization of the affairs and the importance of central government arose from the formation of the first nation-state in Arabian Peninsula, so that subsequently until nine century AC, about 1500 cities were created with the attributes and model of such nation-state which was the core of Islamic government. The classic form of Islamic bureaucracy has been experienced for about more than thousand years in several points of Islamic world. Such successful experience, which had basis in the Caliphate, Imamate and sultanate and in one case in republic state, originates in the bureaucracy experiences of the world in middle age and caused surprise among the European researchers, such as Francis Bacon.
