Al-Mawardi

Abu al-Hasan al-Mawardi was a 11th-century, scholar, diplomat, judge, Qur’anic interpreter who wrote on many subjects, including Qur’anic interpretations, religion, government, public and constitutional law, language and ethics. This is the first English translation of one of his key texts and is an acknowledged classic on the structure and nature of government in the Islamic tradition. Written at a time when the fortunes of the Caliphate in Baghdad where at a low ebb, it provides a comprehensive and rational presentation of the prerogatives of the sovereign as proclaimed by divine law, and outlines the duties and rights of each major public office in the state.
