Islamic Political Systems

Islamic Political Systems

  • 27 February 1995

This lecture took a historical view of the development
of Islamic movements, focusing on their popular bases
and their categorization: the Muslim Brotherhood, Salafi
groups, Hizb ut-Tahrir (Party of Liberation), Tablighi
Jamaat, and Islamic Jihad movements. The literature of
these groups focused on the illegitimacy of regimes in
contemporary Muslim countries. After examining the
discourse of Islamists regarding the Islamic state, he looked
at the most important problems that face contemporary
Muslim countries and tear their societies apart, such as
violence, economic and social stagnation, the relations
between the Islamic state and the rest of the world, and the
status of non-Muslims in the Muslim society.
The speaker concluded by arguing that the
establishment of a modern Islamic state depends on
the ability to harmonize between the true principles of
Islam and the current needs of today’s world.
