Justice as one of the most important issues in educational and sociological sciences, has always attracted attention of thinkers. The meaning of justice is different from one viewpoint and is the same from anther viewpoint in two realms of sociological and educational sciences (philosophy, theosophy, and gnosticism). In both realms, justice is the quality of action and behavior, but in educational sciences it is the quality of the Almighty and the perfect Man, and also the quality of the universe, while in sociological science it implies the nature of behaviors, relationships and laws of man. Shahid Mohammad Bagher Sadr, with his command of educational sciences and practical Islamic sciences, seriously tried to explain the relationship between these two categories from viewpoints of what “is” and what “should be”. In this paper, using interpretive method, Shahid Sadr’s perspectives about justice were investigated. Justice as an expressed reality across the universe and as the final aim of religion in two individual and social dimensions, beside Shahid Sadr’s viewpoints and guidelines to accomplish justice were explained.
