Would you sultanlyyah to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, sultaniyyyah you like to suggest updates through seller support? The BookAl-Ahkam as-Sultaniyyah is both the single most comprehensive account of the workings of islamic governance and equally a highly influential theoretical outline of the nature of that governance.

It is also as if it were a snapshot of the inner workings of Abbasid power at its height. Given that the role of the Qadi far exceeds that of judge, the author was well placed to describe the workings of power from within. Along with that, his excellence as a scholar allowed him to produce a work which is one of the undoubted classics of Islam.

Readers interested shari’a doctrines must read this text by Al-Mawardi d. Moderate scholars even today today proclaim that these laws remain in force. These 20 chapters cover everything from how to appoint an imam, impose land and poll taxes on conquered peoples and divide booty and slaves.

They also define the realm of jihad and explain how wars may be waged for the public good.


Finally they discuss rulings that govern criminal actions. Upon opening, Mawardi discusses the establishment of “imamate,” which he considers necessary to determine rules over Muslims. He writes that the appointed imam must be obeyed and followed whether good or bad. Following the good, Mawardi observes, rewards both good people and leaders in the next life.

Following bad leaders, he concludes, rewards followers and somehow inexplicably punishes the offensive leaders. He equates this rule with the mandate that all believers also practice “jihad and the acquisition of knowledge. Chapter 4, on the Amirate of Jihad, is especially enlightening. Here Mawardi details wartime efforts required against non-believers. Men and horses must be treated with kindness, Mawardi contends, and warriors must attend battle both “light and heavy and fight with your wealth.

Mawardi observes ahkwm sharia doctrine requires believers to engage only in wars they can win. He instructs fighters “to harry [them] from their houses and to inflict damage on them day and night, by fighting and burning; or else to declare war and combat them in ranks Mawardi instructs jihad fighters a not to retreat before an army twice as large, b to fight for victory, to c share war spoils among Muslims and ahka not to allow preferences for relatives in dividing the spoils.
