Abstract: Abstract Drawing on social exchange theory, we investigated the influence of justice perceptions on organizational citizenship behavior and work engagement. In addition, we examined the moderating role of Islamic work ethic (IWE) in strengthening the relationship between justice perceptions and citizenship behavior and work engagement. Using a two-wave time-lagged design and data collected from 354 nurses, we used moderated hierarchical regression to test hypotheses. As hypothesized, justice perceptions predicted organizational citizenship behavior and work engagement. IWE strengthened the relationship between justice perceptions and citizenship behavior, and moderated the relationship between interactional justice and work engagement. We discuss implications for theory, research, and practice.
