Hamza Yusuf Hanson on the Caliphate

“It’s a major problem because Islam in its classical formation recognises the idea of a caliphate. In the absence of the caliphate, it’s just open game in terms of religious authority, so it’s a real problem and we’re suffering from it.”

[Hamza Yusuf Hanson, Doha Debates Special Event: Extremism; February 28, 2006]
