One of the best book i have ever read regarding how islam views politics. Islam unlike christianity and many other religions came to this world with its own political system. This book is of superb quality with its knowledge and in teaching young muslims the islamic way of politics which our beloved prophet taught his sahabas. This is a book I can not stop recomending to all young and older muslims, so that they may learn the true islamic political system and not the system that we have been taught from a young age to follow based on where we live. Too many muslims in our time mix islam with man-made political systems such as democracy or aristocracy or a dictatorship all of which islam opposes. It is imperative that all muslims learn and read this book so that they can teach their children, and so a new generation of muslims may emerge in our time or in the near future with the knowledge of how a proper islamic nation should be run and how the leaders of such a nation should be like, and hopefully in the future a complete unity amongst all muslim nations into one standing nation. I hope Allah guides many more to find and read this masterpiece for the sake of all muslims around the world.
