The Islamic State of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ established the first Islamic State in Medina with a distinct structure (ajhizaat) that continued with its main pillars until 1924. Although the styles (usloob) and means (waseelah) related to each of the institutions evolved over time, the hukm (rule) remained fixed. In the beginning the Prophet ﷺ took charge of most of these ajhizaat himself. As the state expanded, he ﷺ assigned different sahaba to specific roles.

The main elements (jihaz) of this structure must be implemented because they form a fixed method (tareeqa) and not simply optional subsidiary rules or styles (usloob) which change according to the circumstances.

As with all Islamic rules the general rules are specified in the Holy Qur’an and elaborated in the sunnah through the actions, sayings and silence of the Messenger ﷺ. Allah (Most High) says,

لَّقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ لِّمَن كَانَ يَرْجُو اللَّهَ وَالْيَوْمَ الْآخِرَ وَذَكَرَ اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا

You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah, for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much.[1]

No value should be given to the words of Ali Abd ar-Raziq who was ex-communicated from Al-Azhar for his claim in 1925 that, “God has left the field of civil government and worldly interests for the exercise of human reason.”[2] Nor should value be given to modern day academics who make claims outside the well-established methodology of ijtihad and usul ul-fiqh, which clearly contradict the sunnah such as Abdelwahab El-Affendi who says, “the political authority which the Prophet established was a voluntary association,”[3] and “sharia can never be imposed.”[4]

What follows is the structure of the first Islamic State established in Medina Munawara and headed by the best of creation, the last prophet and messenger – Muhammad ﷺ

Term of office start Hijri 8 Rabi’ al-awaal, 1
Term of office end Hijri 12 Rabi’ al-awwal, 11
Term of office start Gregorian 20 September 622
Term of office end Gregorian 8 June 632
Term of office 10 years
Capital Medina formerly Yathrib
Allowance The Khums (the fifth) of the war booty.

This fifth used to be, in the lifetime of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, divided into five shares: one share to Allah ﷺ and the Messenger ﷺ, another for the family of the Messenger ﷺ, and the other three to the orphans, the needy and the wayfarers.

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ used to spend his own share of the Khums on the Muslims and on Jihad in the way of Allah ﷺ, where he would buy camels and horses and weapons, and he would also equip the fighters. It has been reported that when he ﷺ returned from Hunayn, he lifted a camel’s hair and held it aloft in his fingers saying: “I have nothing from that which Allah bestowed upon you even this hair except a fifth of your booty and the fifth I will return to you.”[5]

 3- Bay’ah Contract

The bay’ah is a ruling contract which governs the relationship between Muslims and the Islamic state. The messenger ﷺ established this method by taking a bay’ah from the Ansar at the second bay’ah of Al-Aqaba. This bay’ah was taken from Muslims who were already obliged to obey the Messenger ﷺ by their belief. This shows that the bay’ah was not on belief but on ruling and the condition of obeying the messenger in the bay’ah was in his capacity as a ruler not a prophet.

Location Al-Aqaba mountain pass, 5km from Makkah
The Bay’ah Second pledge of Al-Aqaba. 73 men and 2 women from the Ansar gave the bay’ah directly to the Prophet ﷺ. Read the article below for further details.

There was no formal Majlis in terms of location and formation but the hukm of shura existed as an institution and the sahaba below were those frequently consulted by the Prophet ﷺ.

4.2 – Treasury (Bait ul-Mal)

The State Treasury (Bait ul-Mal) had no fixed location during the time of the Prophet ﷺ. Funds were spread in the mosque or stored in his ﷺ wives’ houses. As time moved on and the state funds poured in, the location of the Bait ul-Mal changed to a fixed location. In the time of Abu Bakr, he assigned a house in Al-Sanh with a lock and guard. During the time of the Umayyads the funds were stored in the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus on a raised platform only accessible by ladder. This is similar to all institutions (ajhizat) where the hukm remains fixed and the technological advancements (styles and means) evolve over time.


Although the individuals below are listed as tax collectors notably of zakat and jizya or both, it can be argued that in reality many were actually in charge of all treasury functions for the area they were sent to. This would make them regional treasury heads (waali ul-Kharaj).

4.4 – Education

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was the main teacher of the sahaba. The sahaba then implemented this knowledge practically in their lives and passed on their knowledge to others. This is based on the verse of the Holy Qur’an:

وَمَا كَانَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ لِيَنفِرُوا كَافَّةً ۚ فَلَوْلَا نَفَرَ مِن كُلِّ فِرْقَةٍ مِّنْهُمْ طَائِفَةٌ لِّيَتَفَقَّهُوا فِي الدِّينِ وَلِيُنذِرُوا قَوْمَهُمْ إِذَا رَجَعُوا إِلَيْهِمْ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَحْذَرُونَ

“Yet it is not right for all the believers to go out [to battle] together: out of each community, a group should go out to gain understanding of the religion, so that they can teach their people when they return and so that they can guard themselves against evil.”[51]

7.2 – Key Observations

The army is one of the jihaz or organisations of the state. The Messenger ﷺ was the commander-in-chief so he organised the army and appointed all its commanders. He ﷺ led many of the battles directly which are known as a ghazwa while also appointing commanders of other units known as a sariya.



Key Observations

Military expeditions (ghazwa) led directly by the Prophet ﷺ 28
Military units (sariya) led by commanders appointed by the Prophet ﷺ 65
Total number of military expeditions 93
Total number of military commanders (excluding the Prophet ﷺ) 43
  1. Year 6 Hijri saw a huge increase in the number of military expeditions and conquests. This was due to the signing of the Treaty of Hudaibiyah which Allah (Most High) refers to as a clear victory,

إِنَّا فَتَحْنَا لَكَ فَتْحًا مُّبِينًا

“Truly We have granted you a clear victory.” (Al-Fath, 48:1)


  1. The number of expeditions led directly by the Prophet ﷺ decreased over time as the sahaba took a more leading role after their training at the hands of the Messenger ﷺ.


  1. The Prophet ﷺ appointed a total of 43 different sahaba as commanders so they all gained experience in this role. After his ﷺ death these commanders played a vital role in the Islamic conquests such as Khalid ibn Al-Walid, Amr ibn al-Aas and Abu Ubaidah ibn al-Jarrah.


  1. Three of the Khulufa Rashida were appointed as military commanders namely, Abu Bakr, Umar and Ali. This experience was important for their future roles as Commanders-in-chief of their respective armies.


  1. The population of the Islamic State was continually expanding through new conquests and people accepting Islam. This meant greater manpower for the later military units that were sent out. Compare the 313 soldiers at the Battle of Badr to the 30,000 at the Battle of Tabook.


  1. Ramadan and the month following it, Shawwal, saw the most expeditions and conquests. This continued throughout Islamic history where the zeal for increasing good deeds during the holy months translated into conquests.
