Towards An Islamic Theory of International Relations by AbdulHamid A. AbuSulayman

Recent events have demonstrated that one of the most important fields of study in this century is world order. The contribution of this book to this field is that it attempts to lay the intellectual foundations for a reconsideration of what constitutes a truly Islamic world order. Perhaps the words of the last Professor Ismail al Faruqi, in his scholarly introduction to this work, best describe the landmarks of such an order; “The world order of Islam would confer upon every person by virtue of birth and humanity, the ultimate right an honor, namely the capacity to think and make up one’s mind as to which millah one wishes to belong and hence, by which law one desires to order one’s life and that of one’s dependents.”
