The national power of countries is mainly the product of the actions and reactions of its constituent components, and has various military, political, economic, social, cultural, etc. dimensions. In this study, the role of AJA in the cultural, social, political, economic and military components of national power has been investigated. The statistical population included 500 commanders, officials and professors at the highest levels of AJA. A total of 20 experts were selected by judgmental sampling, and to complete the questionnaires, 80 were selected by stratified random sampling. The results showed that AJA is one of the largest organizations in the country and in various military, political, economic, social, cultural dimensions, provides the ground for the promotion of national power. The role of the army in politics is not a direct one and should not be expanded further, and this is the best strategy to protect the army and keep it away from unstable political turmoil. AJA has the capacity for economic impact, but for some reason this capacity has not been used properly. The ultimate measure of national power is military capability. In fact, playing a military role is an intrinsic and main duty of AJA, and other roles are ancillary. The role of AJA in the soft component of national power is significant and important, but it seems to be far from the desired effect.
