The purpose of this study was to investigate the basis and dimensions of moral intelligence based on the culture of Nahjulbalagheh and its comparative study was done using Borba's basis and moral intelligence theory. This study is conducted based on quality framework approach, Data included Nahjolbalaghe which were selected through meaningful sampling of parts of sermons, letters, and wisdoms to examine the components of moral intelligence. Contexts of Nahjulbalagheh were evaluated using three processes including implementing, open coding, and selective coding. Findings showed that dimensions of moral intelligence based on the culture of Nahjulbalagheh included the cognitive dimension (reflection, science / reason), spiritual dimension (gratitude, self-improvement, self- control, and conscience), the social dimension (interpersonal relationships, general good, fairness / justice), and affection dimension (kindness, respect, empathy, tolerance / patience, responsibility and openness), and the basis for moral intelligence is God-centered, and in the next step, it is human-centered. While the basis of moral intelligence from the Borba’s point of view is human- centered. Therefore, we can say that based on Nahjulbalagheh's culture, the balance between dimensions of moral intelligence with a God-centered and human-centered basis for moral behavior is necessary.
