The Constitution of Medina & The Concept of the Welfare State [Introduction and Salient Features]

Mention of Important Books Written by Orientalists on the Constitution of Medina

Some orientalists have studied the Constitution of Medina and presented a critical and appreciative review of it, also clarifying its scientific and historical importance. They have particularly highlighted the discussions related to its intellectual, organizational, political, governmental, and administrative matters. In addition, they have paid tribute to the personality of the Prophet Muhammad a, considering him to be one of the most important political figures in the history of the world. However, they have not clarified the constitutional, governmental, and political principles derived from the Constitution of Medina.

Western researchers themselves have pointed out the conscious efforts to confuse the history of Islam and openly admitted that there is no personality in history whose worth and status has been reduced in the West like the personality of Muhammad a.

It is regrettable that Arab researchers have not even taken the trouble to translate the books written by orientalists on the Constitution of Medina in order to benefit from them or at least to answer the objections made by them. The virtues and achievements of the Prophet Muhammad a, which have been testified by non-Muslim researchers, have also not been mentioned. In fact, virtue is only that which is testified by the enemy as well, therefore, in this research, the important books of some orientalists written on the subject of the Constitution of Medina have been mentioned, and where necessary, explanation and critical review has also been provided.
