ABSTRACT: Over the years, many researches have been done to find the best criteria to predict coordination of individuals with their surrounding environment, based on specific characteristics of each person. Hence, the concept of IQ was introduced. Many years after introduction of this intelligence and its applications all over the world, researchers found its limitations and introduced another type of intelligence, called Emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability of inhibition and adjusting emotions and logic in a way that leads us to happiness. During late 20th century, some evidences revealed there is another type of intelligence which can complete the image of human intelligence. Danah Zohar (1997) introduced spiritual intelligence for the first time and proved its existence using some scientific reasons. Using this intelligence, people can view their lives with extended view and act efficiently in their lives. Today, spiritual intelligent is discussed not only in individual area but in organizational area, and has entered not only psychological domain, but other human science areas- such as management. Most of scientists believe that spiritual intelligence is the most important type of intelligence which has the power to change our life, society, and history.

Since in the view of Islam, women and men have the same human nature, the only distinction lies in the creation form or physical one. This distinction like other realties has influences in life with all its necessities. This duality or distinction is based on unit resource or human truth that is the same spirit. Spirit is the source of men and women deeds in their common life. Those societies would be successful that are able to keep all their human forces, whether men or women, develop correctly and enforce knowledge, cognition and necessary technical expertise along with self-assurance. Women mostly are vanished as a resource in under developed societies and weaker classes are under discrimination. The importance of education in for housewives must not be forgotten regarding the protection of environment, the role of women in women associations in achieving the aims of resistant development, role of women in optimizing energy consumption, historical role of women in protecting the environment, establishing environmental culture and role of villager women in resistant development.
