Behavioral scientists now claim that the emergence and application of spiritual leadership, is indeed an attempt to shape positive behavior such as work engagement, along with creation and development of social capital for organizations. Yet, in Islamic countries, including Iran, an essential part of culture and the beliefs and attitudes of the people is affected by Islam. Relying on the Islamic culture and beliefs, this research is intended to explain the possible relationship between spiritual leadership and social capital in the form of Islamic components. The employees’ belonging was considered as a mediator variable. Three questionnaires with reliability coefficient alpha of more than 0.9 were employed to collect data. Research population included the employees of the University of Tehran with a sample of 360. The results indicated a significant relationship between spiritual leadership and social capital equal to %48, with work engagement as a mediator variable equal to %42. The results also showed that the more the spiritual leadership develops by Islamic tendencies, the more it is expected to develop Islamic social capital in the target society.
