Cultural policy-making is a set of systematic actions to advance and develop the cultural activities. The societies, which are based on their own intellectual thoughts and principles, have a framework for their policy-making especially cultural policy-making. In fact, thoughts have a great impact on cultural policy-making. The issue dealt with in this study is the discovery and explanation of the cultural policy-making framework based on the thought of Mahdism. In Mahdism's thought, cultural policy-making has its own cultural goals and components of policy-making. Therefore, in order to explain it two questions can be raised, which are: What are the cultural goals in the thought of Mahdism? In addition, what are the components of the cultural policy framework in Mahdism? This study aims to provide a framework for cultural policy-making in Muslim societies based on the thoughts of Mahdism. In this regard, the teachings of Mahdism were examined by the method of analyzing the themes. In addition to analysis of the themes of Mahdism teachings, the themes of "expansion and spread of justice", "development of global security", "evolution of intellect and thought" and "globalization of Islamic culture" as "cultural goals in Mahdism thought" and "networking", "implementation and enforcement", "internalization of values", "participation in affairs" and "dignity" were identified and explained as the components of cultural policy-making in the thought of Mahdism.
