Download History of the Islamic State’s Institutions – Volume 1 Introduction 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 …

BY DR. REZA PANKHURST This highly recommended title can be purchased from Amazon. Book synopsis: While in the West ‘the Caliphate” evokes overwhelmingly negative images, throughout Islamic history it has been regarded as the ideal Islamic polity. In the wake of the “Arab Spring” and the removal of long-standing dictators in the Middle East, in which the dominant discourse appears to be one of the compatibility of Islam and democracy, reviving the Caliphate has continued to exercise the minds of its opponents and advocates. Reza Pankhurst’s book contributes to our understanding of Islam in politics, the path of Islamic revival across the last century and how the popularity of the Caliphate in Muslim discourse waned and later re-emerged.

Hopes of accountability (muhasabah), rule of law and justice seem a distant dream. In some countries, the level of cruelty inflicted upon the people easily rivals if not surpasses some of the worst oppression in history. Uzbekistan in Central Asia, while at the extreme end of the spectrum, is a sombre example of political life for many Muslims. In the 2000 elections the President of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov gained 91.9% of the vote. The sole opposition candidate Abdulhasiz Jalalov admitted he only entered the race to make it seem democratic and that even he voted for Karimov!1 Members of the Islamic political opposition have literally been boiled alive and thousands of Islamic activists continue to be imprisoned suffering unspeakable tortures.
This timeline outlines the names of all the Caliphs. Later editions will also include important historical events that took place under each Caliph.
