In this paper (through the approach of the Spraygens method), in addition to analyzing the political situation and the intellectual conditions of the time of Ibn Rushd, we look at the political thought of Ibn Rushd based on the book of the description of the Republic of Plato. According to some scholars, Ibn Rushd is a philosopher who does not have a book on the political philosophy, and this view contributes to the hypothesis that the philosophers of the Islamic world after al-Farabi and Ibn Sina only addressed the existence and metaphysics. With the discovery of the book of the description of the Republic of Plato in Latin and its translation into English and then Arabic, new horizons have been opened up to the thinkers and political scholars. Ibn Rushd does not just describe the republic, but he interprets the republic in the light of Islam, and despite his belief in the independence of religion and political philosophy, he believes in the harmony of the two. In the book of Descriptions of the Republic, he not only rebuilds the role of wisdom in political philosophy and builds religion on the basis of argument, but also he provides a critical look at the state of the Islamic society. If we accept that philosophy exists in Ibn Rushd’s Medina, whose foundations are based on religion, in fact, we accept that philosophy has a religious understanding because in Ibn Rushd's thought there is not any conflict between the rights.
