About The Book
English translation of Usul al-fikr al-Siyasi fil Al-Qur'an.
This work is about the origins of political thought and a study of the philosophy of politics.
It examines the actions of the state as the main power concerned with public affairs in society, and enquires into which public action is considered good or bad in relation to other value systems endorsed by Islam.
The work uses a unique methodology to argue that the major elements of Qur'anic political thought are securely anchored in Makkan verses of the Qur'an.
Studying these verses it searches for the rules and principles that help identify the directions and major objectives towards which both human society and political action are guided prior to the rise of institutions and the regulation of relations.
