The issues related to leadership are long been cited in management literature. However, little attention has been paid on the principles, theories and traits of Islamic leadership in both Western and Non-western literature. Moreover, till to date no studies has been tried to shed light on the influence of transformational and servant leadership on organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) from the Islamic perspective. The present study is such an effort to fill this gap. The objective of this paper is to highlight the relationships between transformational and servant leadership, taqwa, and OCB on the basis of Islamic principles. Especially ‘taqwa’ as the moderator has been proposed to improve the relationship between servant leadership and OCB. Few propositions have been developed to uncover the links that are not served in the previous research. This study contributes largely to the OCB and Islamic leadership literature as well as in the managerial practices by providing the useful knowledge and directions regarding the effects of Islamic leadership style on OCB.
