"The reasons for the decline of the Islamic Civilization" is a topic which has attracted many intellectuals and a lot of theorists have asserted various views to elaborate the subject. Morteza Motahari, one of the Iranian thinkers, had been preoccupied with the issue for years and had depicted a thorough roadmap to study the subject. He believed that reforming an attitude is prior to reforming an action, hence to improve the function of people in society, it is essential to transform their attitudes. Furthermore, the beginning of this reformation depends on people, because any reformation originates from the public and then moves towards the ruling class and the elites. Accordingly, Motahari wrote Dastan Rastan to address the youth to the reformation of their views. The present study, through the method of qualitative-content analysis is seeking to extract the concepts that the philosopher was conveying to his young audience. Moreover, this study is trying to scrutinize the amount of conformity between the mentioned concepts of the work and the idea of the roadmap which Motahari illustrated for the revival of the Islamic Civilization. The findings of this study prove the issues achieved by the content analysis of the book are intensely in agreement with the philosopher's theory about the reasons of the decline of the Islamic Civilization.
