Usually in field of technology there is a conflict between the interests of institutions and the ethical responsibilities to beneficiaries. Hence, many parties have made efforts to put some ethical standards and rules of conduct for the purpose of raising the human values within the institutions of Information Technology. In Islam morality is based primarily on the Holy Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Islam calls every person for self-reckoning, sincerity in work, honesty and sacrifice, in addition to many ethics that lead to prosperity in behaviour in various fields, including industrial and technical. The Islamic moral rules introduce full compatibility between what should the behaviour of industrial enterprises be and the personal opinions of individuals in those institutions because of the clarity of Islamic core values and principles. This research aims to develop standards and initial rules for workers in the field of information technology derived from the Islamic public rules. These standards can be divided into several topics: Islamic principles in Information technology, Islamic principles in software design, Islamic occupational principles for workers in information technology field, responsibilities towards beneficiaries and the employer, and responsibilities towards one’s self.
