Political systems, based on their existential philosophy and through governmental structures, seek to achieve the objectives that form their basis and substance. Since each government has its own goals and the systems, and structures also fulfill the objectives, political systems should look for arrangements to achieve these ultimate goals.
This article seeks to investigate the relationship between structure and substance in Islamic governance. The author examines the interactive effects of these two which involve studying the effect of governmental structures on the system basis and the objectives as well as the impact of substance and objectives on political and governmental structures. Firstly, the types of structures in Islamic systems are analyzed using the descriptive-analytic research method and then, the probable relationship of each one, as well as the impacts and susceptibility of them, are examined.
In the governments that originated from the divine will, especially Islam, it is conceivable that there are two types of structure: Institutive and Approved. The Approved Structure itself can be divided into two types: Imported structure, assuming no structural effect and Amended structure assuming the minimal and procedural effects of the structure. Conversely, the Institutive Structure emphasizes on maximum and substantive impact of the structure.
