The New political Systems seek mobilization and Maximizing political participation of their citizens. This process can strengthening the relationship between the political system and the people in order to facilitate the continuation of the political system, through obtaining political legitimacy of government. It is clear that in the Islamic political system the doctrine of "Enjoining Good and Forbidding Evil " Plays a major role in political development, The Holy Quran, and Hadith Texts, and

Three spheres of People-people (Parallel)) People-rulers (Opposite Ascending) and Rulers – people (Opposite Descending) in these teachings are what distinguishes the religious democracy from liberal democracies. This paper tries to develop this hypothesis that the realm of people – rulers is forgotten in enforcing teachings or Enjoining Good and Forbidding Evil. Therefore, this paper relying on interpretive method and with taking advantage of the use of theory of religious democracy concludes that the revival of the third realm needs to log in the political culture of the Muslim community among people, intellectuals, and Political elites.
