Shaykh Muhammad Bakhīt Al-Muti‘ī on The Caliphate [Mufti of Egypt 1915 – 1920]

muhd bakhit

“The claim of the extinction of the Caliphate in Islam is not correct, and rather the only thing that has become extinct is the presence of the Caliph, and as for the Caliphate it still remains obligatory upon the Muslim nation”

[Shaykh Muḥammad Bakhīt Al-Muṭi‘ī, aqīqat al-Islām wa Uūl al-ukm (The Reality of Islam and the Basis of Ruling), 1926]
