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

State Powers in the Constitution of Medina

In the seventh chapter of the book, a detailed mention of the powers delegated to the state by the Constitution of Medina is made and their comparison with modern constitutions is presented.

In any state structure, three institutions, “legislature, administration and judiciary,” play an important role. If these institutions perform their services with full powers and autonomy, a human-friendly welfare state comes into existence.

The Constitution of Medina introduced the state to these three institutions and their powers for the first time. These three institutions, their powers, and the scope of the Constitution of Medina are clearly mentioned in the Constitution of Medina.

The comparison of the Constitution of Medina and modern constitutions in this chapter proves that the modern states have reached the establishment of the institutions and their powers, which were established by the King of the Universe a fifteen hundred years ago.
