Abstract: 

Conflict is an undeniable reality in human life. Therefore it must be managed in an appropriate way. There are various attitudes to conflict that are to be studied and compared with the Islamic view in this article.

The theories of management are divided into three groups depending on positive or negative attitudes towards conflict. The first group of theories emphasizes the negative aspects of conflict and believes that conflict must be limited and we can avoid it. The second group of theories believes there is no way to avoid conflicts and management must have a challenge with it. Furthermore they believe that some conflicts can be positive in specific conditions. The third group of theories insists on positive aspects of conflicts and believes that we cannot avoid conflicts but they can put the organization in a new way of development. The Islamic ideology has a balanced attitude towards conflicts. It introduces levels of conflicts that are negative because they have destructive effects and emphasize the prevention and dissolution of them. On the other hand it agrees with creating levels of positive conflicts such as challenging thoughts, sound competitions, constructive criticism and best contention.
