The BA Publishes the Book Research into Legitimate Politics

Posted on

The BA Manuscripts Center published a book entitled Research into Legitimate Politics, written by a group of prominent Arab academics. It includes a foreword by Dr. Moustafa Elfeki, Director of the BA, and an introduction by Dr. Shawki Allam, the Grand Mufti of Egypt.

The book comes as a contribution made by the BA towards the ongoing debate in the Arab communities regarding the relation between politics and religion, and the areas of consensus and difference between politics and Sharia law. Moreover, the book researchers give a comprehensive insight into the meaning of politics in Islam, the historical and political role in the rule of Islamic countries, and how the political view of power affects radical ideas.

In his forward, Dr. ElFeki said “Studying science and exploring means to develop and harness it to the benefit of humanbeings is one of the critical principles on which the BA policies are based.”

In his introduction, Dr. Shawki Allam mentioned that the book comprises a collection of research papers on legitimate politics, written by remarkable scholars who are influential in the doctrinal and cultural movement in the Arab and Islamic world.
