Natural obligations are the concept between the moral obligations and civil obligatins. There is still no precise and comprehensive definition of natural obligation in any legal text. However it could be considered as a concept which is between moral and civil obligations. Furthermore Jurisprudence and legal doctrine still haven't reached to an agreement on the nature and scope of natural obligations. There are a lot of discussions and dialogues on the nature and basis of the natural obligation and all of them endeavour to specify it as a payment of obligation. Investigating the concept of natural obligation from this view could be helpful and worthwile. In this essay, while trying to answer critical questions about natural obligation, we analized the concept of moral obligation more precisely and investigated different aspects of it and its similarities to and differences with natural obligations. The main concern of this article is to answer some fundamental questions about the concept of natural obligation including: can we assume natural obligation as a classic example of moral obligations? Is there any legal boundery between them? Does every natural obligation ensure a moral obligation with it and vice varsa?
