Culture as a treasure trove of human material and spiritual achievements, has created the beliefs, convictions, values, attitudes and principles accepted by a society from the beginning of history and determines the type of behavior and performance of that community.

It is clear that without this basic category, change in different sections of society will be difficult since every change requires preparation and appropriate context, meaning acceptance and cultural attitude in society. In addition, every change and prosperity is the result of a certain attitude, without which success and progress are not possible, and this attitude indicates the existence of a suitable culture for development.Different economic activities show the close relationship between culture and economic development. Therefore, in this study, the role of culture components on economic development from the perspective of conventional economics and Imam Ali (AS) with a system dynamics approach in the form of causal loops has been investigated. The research results show that: Cultural factors on economic development from the perspective of conventional economics include the components of labor and production, consumerism and participation. According to Imam Ali (AS), the cultural factors of economic development include the components of work and effort, moderation and non-consumerism, earning halal income and the negation of extravagance and waste. Income, savings, employment and investment) affect economic development. The index of moderation and non-consumerism affects economic development through channels (savings, capital formation, investment, poverty reduction, economic justice, income distribution, cooperation, social capital and total production). The index of halal income through channels (blessing, capital concentration, poverty reduction, reduction of usury and hoarding activities, economic justice and public welfare) affect economic development and the index of negation of waste and waste through channels (Savings, capital formation, investment, purchasing power and total production) affect economic development.
