about

The first English translation of this controversial essay that challenged fundamental ideas about political power. Egypt, 1925: the Muslim world is in turmoil over Mustapha Kamal Ataturk's proposal to abolish the caliphate in Turkey. The debate over Islam and politics re-ignites as traditional political systems dissolve under pressure from European powers and most Muslim countries lose their sovereignty. Into this debate enters Ali Abdel Razek, a religious cleric trained at Al-Azhar University, arguing in favour of secularism inhis essay 'Islam and the Foundations of Political Power', translated here for the first time.
Abdou Filali-Ansary is Director at the The Aga Khan University Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilizations.
