In his letter to governor of Egypt, Imam Ali (AS) wrote: “The best works from the viewpoint of a ruler should be the one which is the middle in terms of “right,” the most inclusive in terms of “justice,” and the most overarching in terms of “people’s satisfaction.” It seems that Imam Ali\'s (AS) remark is too complicated and needs some clarifications. Here, the relation among “right, justice, and public satisfaction” should be demonstrated. The author has not been able to find new material in some interpretations of Nahj-ul-Balagha and other related works. Then, he tried to come up with a new interpretation of Imam Ali\'s (AS) words in order to formulate an inclusive political rule in the area of justice. Regardless of whether the new interpretation is correct or not, it is of such importance as to both make the present paper worthy of analysis, and reminds us of the need to write new material and interpretations on this viewpoint of Imam Ali (AS).
