The Institutions of State in the Khilafah (In Ruling and Administration)
This book is issued and adopted by Hizb ut-Tahrir. For authentic meanings please refer to Arabic text.
In this book we wish to present a clear understanding of the practical implementation of the ruling and administrative organisations of the Khilafah state. More importantly, through this clarity we hope to uplift the hearts of the Muslims, so that they can visualise what the Khilafah state will be and strive towards it.
Our motivation in writing this book is the fact that the present ruling systems in the world are not consistent with the ruling system of Islam in terms of their structures and their bases. It is clear to all Muslims that these ruling systems are not derived from the book of Allah, the Sunnah of His Messenger and the other sources of Islamic law that are referred to by them. There is no disagreement amongst Muslims that these systems contradict the system of Islam.
What causes confusion is whether the shape of the ruling system in Islam, in terms of its institutions, is similar to the ruling systems currently being implemented. Therefore they accept the existence of ministers and ministerial institutions that operate in a similar manner to those existent in foreign manmade ruling systems. This book concentrates on the structure and institutions of the Khilafah state, so as to make the shape of the ruling system clear in the minds of Muslims before its return, Insha’Allah.
