Politics in Islam – The Khilafah
Since Islam is a deen, it covers all aspects of life including the political aspect. Here is an overview of the Islamic political system. In brief, religion concerns only the personal part of life whereas deen covers all aspects of life, therefore it can be called a lifestyle.
The word khilafah has been taken from the Arabic root word Khalifa meaning to follow or to succeed. When the Prophet Muhammad (S) died, Hadhrat Abu Bakr became the leader of the Muslims. He was called KhalifatulRasulullah. Even though, Hadhrat Umar (RA) assumed the title of Ameer-ul-Momineen, the title of Khalifa was also retained and in time the Muslims adopted this title, Khalifa, for their leader.
