About The Book

Sayyid Qutb's strong conviction that Islam is superior to all other systems is made clear in this work.

Syed Qutb says that 'the ruler occupies his position only by the completely and absolutely free choice of all Muslims; and they are not bound to elect him by any compact with his predecessor'.

When the community becomes dissatisfied with a ruler, his rule must end. Nevertheless, Qutb does not provide for a completely democratic system. The system is fundamentally based on the Qur'an and sunnah.
