“Islam is the religion of hukuma, which is clearly evident in the doctrines of this Divine Faith. A close study of the Islamic texts dealing with foundations of Islamic hukuma, however, indicates that Islam is a religion that rules over the people’s hearts rather than over their “bodies” and dominating them with political authority. Principles of this type of ruling and statesmanship are tantamount to the political foundations of the Islamic state; and political foundations of ‘Alawi [ruling] system are the very foundations of Islamic management.”
Free e-book that contain interesting governing value from one of the best Prophet’s companion and fourth caliphate of Islam. Quick look on the writing and found substantial meaning of Islamic concept of power:
