Description from the publisher:
Although the Muslims are for the most part imbued with enthusiasm for the idea of a truly
Islamic state – that is, a state based not on the concepts of nationality and race but solely on the ideology
Of the Qur’an and Sunnah, they had a yet no concrete vision of the method of government and of this institutions which would give the state a distinctly Islamic character and would , at the same time , fully correspond to the exigencies of the present age. The very fact that none of the existing Muslim countries
Has so far achieved a form of government that could be termed genuinely Islamic, makes a discussion of the principle which ought to underlie the constitution of Islamic state imperative.
