Political Basis of Islam

1. Imaniat
Confident that Allah Ta'ala;
 ~ He who created (Khaleq) all things,
 ~ He is the Superintendent (Maleq) on the creation
 ~ He Providers (Razeq) to all.

2. Risaalat
Convinced the life of Muhammad s.a.w. and adhered to the whole way of his life.
3. Khilafat

Khilafah means representation. Man are as a representative of God. After Muhammad s.a.w. died,                  
followers are responsible for continuing the work to convey religious (missionary). All muslims                                                                                   should involve in the task!
It is easily understood that khalifah is not only a king or leader of a country, but each and 
every muslims are khalifah.

Politics is actually a very wide meaning, then there must be an understanding by the audience about the political meaning itself until society is not afraid of the word politics so that  community will have a better 'political sense'.

As an example of this is described as;
I want to buy a laptop. I have a sum of $1000.00 while the laptop is priced at $2500.00. So I'm thinking how do I get the sum of $2500.00. Then I borrowed from a friend of $250.00, ask from mother and sister and sell  unused goods from the store and work over time one hour a day at $4.00 per hour. At the end of the month total amount of $2500.00  was collected and the laptop is mine.

How the money was  engineered  is politics!

It was stated in the Holy Quran;
"When the population of a village would have  believe and fear Allah, will be opened for them the  blessings from the heavens and the earth."

So it is an easy conclusion; the key to obtaining universal peace and prosperity is the faith and piety!

Simple Calculation!

We take the example of an organization consisting of one manager and several employees. As a manager he would issue instructions and set certain laws for the benefit and progress of the organization.

We understand that any employee who is hardworking, productive, loyal, obedient and does not dispute the boss will be approved by the employer. He will have promotions and gain salaries, bonuses at the end of the year and the boss will be happy to provide him other allowances!

What about an employee who is lazy, did not comply with and against the boss? Sure he will be subject to disciplinary action, the increase in his salary would be arrested and his life is more difficult.

If Muslims follow commandments of their Lord and adopt the life of His Messenger, then
the world will be safe from any disaster and calamities. No war, protest or rebellion. The world will be filled with peace and affection.

In the Holly Al-Quran it is stated;
"Then I (Noah a.s.) said, 'Ask forgiveness from your Lord, for He is Oft-Forgiving. Undoubtedly he will rain from the sky with a vengeance. He will multiply to your property and children, gathered for you gardens and rivers "

Let us save the world in a way that is organized by the Creator through the word of Noah a.s. It is the only way!

Manage for Prosperity

The Prophet (peace be upon him) use the word siyasah in saying:
"The children of Israel were conducted (siyasah) by the prophets (tasusuhumul prophets). When the prophet died, another prophet came to change it. There is no prophet after me, but there will be a lot of caliphate. " (Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim).
Clearly, politics or siyasah  means taking good care of the community.
The Prophet (pbuh) said:
" Anyone who wake up in the morning and he only considers the worldly  business, then the person has nothing in the eye of Allah s.w.t., and whoever does not look at matters of Muslims, then he is not included among them (i.e Muslims). (Narrated by Thabrani)

It's clear that the aim or the result of politics in Islam is a society that is peaceful, prosperous, productive, no chaos but all the goodness desired by mankind.

How this could be achieved?

Islam is very rich in political thinking. Islamic political thought from the problem of political ethics, political philosophy, religion, law, to national procedures. But the diversity of the treasures of Islamic political thought can be said to begin in thinking about the relationship of religion and state.

We can say, thinking of Islamic thinkers who want the separation of political Islam and Islamic political thought and thought requires the consolidation of political Islam and political Islam as a thinking. This is because, since the French Revolution when religious Kristien has finished discussing the relative relationship of church and state that the church should be separate from the country. However, Islam still remains the question of the consolidation of political Islam since the time of the Prophet until the time is now.

Political Aspects of Islam

The political aspects of Islam from the Quran and the Sunnah (sayings and habits of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w.) and the story of the Prophets' companions.

Traditional political concepts in Islam, including the leadership of the Prophet's successors, when the caliph, and the importance of following Islamic lawthe duty of government to criticize the consultation of their subjects and the importance of the Kings look familiar unfair, but not encouraging rebellion against them.  
                                                                                                                                                  The ocean changes in the Islamic world is the abolition of the Ottoman Empire in 1924, which some believe the end to establish an islamic state means 'symbolic and practices'. It was seen in 19th or 20th century; common themes against Western imperialism, particularly the British Empire, and sometimes racist policies that discriminate against some Muslims.

As a result of the political maturity of Islam is a peaceful, prosperous and respected by non-muslim's countries. During the time of Caliph Umar bin Abdul Aziz, none of the Muslims to take zakat (alms) because the prosperity that Allah bestowed upon them. Among non-muslims do they prefer to reside in a country ruled by Muslims.

Caliph practice equal life of the poor, by having a shirt and eating the bread of coarse grain. Welfare of the people comes first to the caliph himself cooking food for the children which are crying from hunger.
