Throughout the history of religion, after the passing away of prophets, devoted and inspired individuals continued the establishment of the King-dom of God on earth. In this issue we have presented articles in reference to the concept and establishment of khilafat. Hopefully, this issue will provide readers the insight to understand True Khilafat, and why any other person donning the title khalifah is doomed to fail if his group lacks the roots of a Divine Prophethood.

The End of Political Khilafat in Islam

Resurrecting Khilafah By Naser-ud-Din Shams
"With the elimination of Khilāfah – the source of the Muslim ummah’s unity – Muslims fought against one another to ascend to political, worldly power. Some dynasties tried desperately to adopt or hold onto the title of “khalifah” in order to convey the sense of Islamic legitimacy, but it was to no avail. In fact, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (or the Levant), known as ISIS or ISIL, seeks this very legitimacy today, but their actions expose them as usurpers of a throne that they’re simply not worthy of.”
