About

Pictured above is the last caliph Sultan Abdülmecid Efendi on his way to Friday prayers, 1923.

My name is Abdul Malik and I am a Sunni Muslim who follows the Hanafi madhhab (school of jurisprudence). I have a degree in theology from the University of Birmingham. I have worked as a teacher, journalist, project manager, interpreter, shop assistant and security guard.

This blog will present mainstream Islamic views on the Caliphate, with a focus on recognised classical scholars. Too much of the present day narrative on this subject is voiced by extremist groups like Al-Qaeda and Isis. We should not allow them to hijack this subject. An understanding of the importance of the Caliphate is vital for all Muslims, especially at a time when it does not exist in the Muslim world. Please tell others about this blog and feel free to leave comments.
