The form of religious government as one of the most challenging issues in the field of Islamic political thought has always been disputed. Scholars who accept the interference of religion in politics and even believe that religion has made some recommendations about the foundations and principles of the government, they do not hold similar ideas on the form of government. On the one hand, some believe that the form of the government is the same as other elements of politics and identified by God Almighty as fixed and not variable. On the other hand, others hold the belief that God has not commented on the form of government and has remained silent on this matter. Both groups have relied on some evidence to prove their claims more particularly the evidence provided by the holy Quran on the Prophet’ government, which indicates that whether God has presented the pyramidal structure of power for religious government or that God has not done so and does not consider any specific form for the government. This article, using ijtihadi interpretive method as well as historical narrations and quotations, have tried to judge between these two views and reached the conclusion that there is no evidence of the stability of the form of government and its fixed pyramid structure in the story of the prophets in the holy Quran, and it is not possible to prove this claim.
