What is the ideal Muslim society? What are the traits of this Islamic community? Is it even possible to establish one today?
Amidst the turmoil of war, racism, political strife, economic recession, and social turmoil that beset our world, many yearn for an alternative where justice, freedom, decency, and common sense reign supreme. In the past, such societies have indeed existed during the golden eras of Islamic civilization, and we pray that, if it is the will of Allah, they may re-emerge once again.
Translated by Nasiruddin al-Khattab, The Ideal Muslim Society delves deeply into the traits of this Islamic community, examining the possibility of establishing it in our modern world. Dr Muhammad 'Ali al-Hashimi provides a comprehensive depiction of what such an ideal society would entail, drawing upon extensive research of Islamic history, and contrasting the current state of human societies with the envisioned perfection. The book explores the religious, political, economic, social, and other facets of this ideal society, delineating everything from the obligations of those in positions of authority to the everyday interactions between individuals. For those seeking a more hopeful future, The Ideal Muslim Society presents practical insights and a path forward.
