This book is a brief compilation of hadith related to ruling. It is a small selection but it is hoped that it serves to illustrate how central to Islam was its ruling system, and the manner of the just ruler as opposed to the characteristics of the evil one, and the nature of the application of the rule, the role of the Ummah in accounting those in authority, and the painful consequences if this is neglected.

 


Hadith Role of the Ummah Rules


This book about the Islamic state is not meant to narrate its history but to explain how the messenger of Allah established the Islamic state, and to show how the disbelieving colonialists destroyed it. It demonstrates how Muslims should re-establish their state so that the light that guided the world in the darkest of ages returns to enlighten humanity once again.

 



The System of Islam (Nidham al-Islam) by Taqiuddin an Nabhani
Hizb ut-Tahrir

Excerpt: “Man revives (yanhaDu) according to what he carries of thought (fikr) about man, life and the universe, and about their relationship, as a whole, with what preceded this life and what comes after it. Hence, in order for man to revive (yanhaD), it is necessary to radically and comprehensively change his current thought (fikr) and generate another thought (fikr) for him. This is because it is the thought (fikr) that generates the concepts about things and consolidates them”.

 

 



Constructing the Khilafah’s Foreign Policy by Adnan Khan

 



Since its inception in 1947, Pakistan has fluctuated from one crisis to another. Indeed, its very existence
has been a painful one, punctuated by periods of superficial progress and on the surface the emergence as a
meaningful player on the international scene. Nothing exemplifies this more than the Pakistan’s economic
legacy. Created over 50 years ago Pakistan has failed to develop its economy on a similar trajectory to that
of its contemporary peers. The result of this failure has been that tens of millions of Pakistanis today
languish in unprecedented levels of poverty, poor health and illiteracy. The country is plagued by
corruption and saddled with debt to both internal and external creditors at overwhelming rates of interest.
Far from improving, the situation is steadily deteriorating, weakening Pakistan further and leaving it
exposed to manipulative foreign entities such as the IMF and other international institutions and nations.
The very real effects of this today include load shedding of electricity in major cities for over 14 hours at a
time, a near default on financial obligations and harrowing cases of human tragedy ranging from suicide to
selling offspring due to crushing poverty and sheer desperation.

 



From Darkness into Light by Salim Fredericks & Ahmer Feroze

An Account of the Messenger’s  struggle to make Islam dominant

 



Since the 13th century Hijri (19th century AD), several movements were established to revive the Ummah but were all unsuccessful in their attempts. However, these movements had a strong influence over those who came after them to repeat the attempts. Upon scrutinizing these movements and their attempts for revival, one can conclude that the causes for their failure (from a structural point of view) are due to the following four factors:

1. The movements were established upon a general undefined idea (fikrah), which was vague, or unclear. In addition, the idea lacked focus, purity, and clarity.

2. The movements did not define a method (Tareeqah) to implement their idea; rather, they proceeded through improvised and twisted means. Furthermore, their means were undefined and ambiguous.

3. The movements relied upon individuals who lacked full awareness, and a well-focused determination. Individuals were driven solely by their desire or zeal to work.

4. The individuals carrying the responsibility of these movements did not have a correct bond amongst themselves. They were merely bound by being members in a structure that manifested itself in certain actions and titles.

Consequently, it was only natural for such movements to surge forward until their efforts and enthusiasm were exhausted, causing their activities to die down and they eventually became extinct. Other movements emerged thereafter, who followed the same pattern until they, too, became extinct. The failure of all these movements was only natural, because they were not based on a correct, clear and a defined idea. In addition, they did not have a correct method, they depended upon individuals who lacked awareness, and were not bound by a correct bond.

The Vanguard of the Islamic Revolution -The Jama’at-i Islami of Pakistan bySeyyed Vali Reza Nasr.

In this groundbreaking study, Seyyed Vali Reza Nasr examines the origins, historical development, and political strategies of one of the oldest and most influential Islamic revival movements, the Jama’at-i Islami of Pakistan. He focuses on the inherent tension between the movement’s idealized vision of the nation as a holy community based in Islamic law and its political agenda of socioeconomic change for Pakistani society.

Nasr’s work goes beyond the exploration of a single party to examine the diverse sociopolitical roots of contemporary Islamic revivalism, challenging many of the standard interpretations about political expressions of Islam.
