This informative guide on the basics of Islamic political theory first covers the political situation in Arabia before and after the formation of the Islamic state in the seventh century. It then expounds on the objectives of a government in Islam, leading into a discussion of the principles of al-Shura, justice, freedom, and equality. This book serves as an ideal source of information about the political system under Islamic Shari’ah, for both academic and non-academic circles.
