Q&A: The Condition of Al-‘Adl (Being Just) in the Appointment of the Khaleefah

Question: Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh One of the conditions of the Khalifah is that he must be ‘adl (just). We use Qiyas to derive this Hukm; but can the following verse of Qur’an be used as a daleel (evidence) for this condition also وَإِذا حَكَمتُم بَينَ النّاسِ أَن تَحكُموا بِالعَدلِ “when you judge […]

Lessons from the Weaknesses in Ruling during the Previous Era of the Khilafah

It is undoubted that the Islamic Khilafah State was a magnificent, stable and effective system of ruling. Although the initial Muslims had emerged victorious over the two major powers, Rome and Persia, they never turned to these great empires for guidance regarding their own civilization, method of ruling and state institutions. Nor did they need […]

How Does Islam Ensure Good Governance?

مَثَلُ الَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ أَوْلِيَاءَ كَمَثَلِ الْعَنْكَبُوتِ اتَّخَذَتْ بَيْتًا وَإِنَّ أَوْهَنَ الْبُيُوتِ لَبَيْتُ الْعَنْكَبُوتِ لَوْ كَانُوا يَعْلَمُونَ “The likeness of those who take (false deities as) Auliyâ’ (protectors, helpers) other than Allah is the likeness of a spider who builds (for itself) a house; but verily, the frailest (weakest) of houses is the […]

Muslims Have Not Declined nor Lost Their Glory Except After the Destruction of their State: The Islamic Khilafah State

On this very day, the third of March 1924 CE, corresponding to the twenty-eighth of Rajab 1342 AH Mustafa Kamal perpetrated a heinous crime by officially announcing the abolition of the Khilafah system and Turkey was declared a secular republic, and he forsook the rest of the Muslim countries that were part of the Khilafah. Truly it was the greatest calamity affecting the Ummah of Islam; the life of Muslims became darker as a result, and the sun of their pride and dignity became absent on the day they lost their Khaleefah, the one who looks after their affairs, and defender of their rights, whom the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم described as:

91 Years since the Destruction of the Khilafah

As much of the western world commemorates World War I (1914-1918) and looks at the role Europe played in ultimately defeating an aggressive Germany. Despite losing WWI, it was the Ottomans and other European empires that were rubbed of the global map – Germany was largely left intact. The political mess we have in the Middle East today goes back to what Britain and France created 100 years ago, when they dismantled the Khilafah. Understanding this 91 years on is the key to placing everything in its correct context.

The Caliphate can Prevent Dictatorship and Corruption under Islamic Rule

We live in a world where democracy is promoted as the panacea for all socio-political ills. Western states proselytise democracy around the world, and particularly in the Muslim world. Lord Acton had once said, “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” [1] Democracy is promoted as the antidote against dictatorship and corruption.

In the history of the Muslims, the caliphate was at times a tyrannical system where the caliphs had too much power. Hasan Turabi argues, “The caliphate began as an elected consultative institution. Later it degenerated into a hereditary, or usurpatory, authoritarian government. This pseudo-caliphate was universally condemned by jurists, though many excused its acts on the grounds of necessity or tolerated them in the interest of stability.” [2]

O Muslims: The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم has Approved the Type of the Flag and the Banner in Islam; Follow Him and you will Succeed

The Islamic State has a flag (Alam); whether it is a Liwaa’ or Rayah, as deduced from the flags (Alwiyah) and banners (Rayat) of the first Islamic State, which the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم in al-Medina al-Munawwarah. The flag (Liwaa) is white, on which it is written “La Ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah” with black script. It is tied to the leader (Amir) of the army and is used as a sign (‘alam) to him. 

How Can a future Khilafah Address Traffic Problems?


According to the people of Kenya, as the festive season set in last December, “thousands of Nairobians packed off to their rural homes to celebrate the season with extended family and friends. Others who could afford it headed to the Coastal City of Mombasa to cool off after what, in many ways, was a dramatic year. Getting out of the city around Christmas is a tradition many follow strictly. It is one of those habits which make us ‘Kenyan’. Christmas is a tradition many follow strictly. It is one of those habits which make us ‘Kenyan’.” Thankfully, this is the only time in the year when the city is freed of its depressing traffic jams and the hustle and bustle dies down. It is also the only time when I am reminded that Ongata Rongai, better known in some circles as ‘Diaspora’, is actually 30 minutes to Nairobi and not the debilitating two hours we are used to.
