Abstract:
The social and political systems are vital for any idological belief. During the course of human events, no ideology existed without these two essential components. This dissertation endeavors to establish a modern model of the political system for the Islamic Nation as one political unit adhering to Islam. The study considers solely the primary source of Islam, that is, the Islamic Holy Constitution - the Holy Qur'an and Sunnah. In order to achieve such an aim, the study starts with analysis of the content of the Islamic Holy Constitution. It appears that Islam is a complete permanent system for all people of all persuasions. Such universality and continuity of the system dictates two sorts of instructions: infrastructural and superstructural laws. The first is comprehensively decided for all cases that are not subject to change. The second is merely an outline guidance for Muslims to establish laws that are compatible with their circumstances. To provide a complete understanding for the Islamic System, the study sets up the necessary background. It outlines the ruling system that are repeatedly mentioned in the Islamic Holy Constitution. Also a brief analysis for the alleged contrast between human and Divine law is provided together with the concept of ethics in Islam. In addition, the study discusses, maybe for the first time in the Islamic historical jurisprudence, the basic foundations of the Islamic System, such as sovereignty and nationality in Islam. The Islamic State, its functions and organizations, is the central part of this study. The Islamic political system is modeled according to the need of the contemporary Islamic Nation without ignoring the practice of the Prophet of Islam {Peace be upon Him} and his right-guided successors. The concepts of peace, war, and economy are considered in relation to the political system of Islam. The study discusses the major rules concerning these aspects. The study concludes that Islam is a complete system of life, concerned before its religious instructions with a unique social and political order under which Muslims have to practice their lives and perform their religious activities.
