Based on the contemporary leadership styles Spiritual, Ethical and Servant leadership theories are very popular among the scholars during the last decade. Although the virtues of leaders have been studied by scholars, it was seen in the literature that these virtues of leaders by Islamic values haven’t been tested in enough number. Thus, this research studies the impact of four main virtues by Al-Ghazali on the organizational commitment and performance of the employees at private schools in Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The results show that religiosity is an initiator factor that imparts wisdom and justice. Furthermore, wisdom is another important factor that impacts justice, temperance, courage, performance, and organizational commitment. This study includes theoretical and practical contributions to the literature.

Keywords: Leadership, Four virtues of Al-Ghazali, Organizational Commitment, Performance.
