This book, written by Abdul Kareem Jamil, addresses the topic of accountability in the Khilafah State and how Islam establishes clear checks and balances to ensure the office of the Khalifah is not abused.
Accountability in the Khilafah
Accountability (muhasabah) is not the first word that springs to mind when discussing the Muslim world. Dictatorship, rigged elections, tyranny and torture pretty much sum up most Muslim countries today. The level of cruelty inflicted upon the people easily rivals if not surpasses some of the worst oppression in history. Unfortunately for those living there accountability and the rule of law seem a distant dream.
