The Imam was a prolific writer and his writings touched many subjects. Lesser known perhaps to Muslim communities in the West are his theories on governance and ruling.

Here we present a piece adapted from a detailed response of the Amir of Hizb ut Tahrir, Shaykh Ata ibn Khalil abu al Rashta, to one who asked him regarding the hadith of the mujaddid.
