The Constitution of the Caliphate State, the Caliph

Article 28: The position of Caliph

The Constitution of the Caliphate State, Article 28: No one can be Khalifa unless the Muslims appoint him, and no one possesses the mandatory powers of the leadership of the State unless the contract with him has been concluded according tothe Shari’ah, like any contract in Islam.

Article 28: No one can be Caliph (Khalifa, Khaleefah) unless the Muslims appoint him, and no one possesses the mandatory powers of the leadership of the State unless the contract with him has been concluded according tothe Shari’ah, like any contract in Islam.

The evidence is that the Caliphate (Khilafah) is a contract upon satisfaction and consent, since its reality as a contract means it is not contracted except through two contracting parties, and ,therefore, no one is the Caliph unless he was appointed to it by those whose agreement completes theconclusion of the contract according to the Shari’ah. So if someone appoints himself Caliph without the pledge from those whom the Caliphate is contracted through, then he would not be a Caliph until his pledge occurs with choice and consent from those whom the conclusion of the contract takes place. So the fact that the Caliphate is a contract necessitates the presence of two contracting parties, with each of them having the necessary Shari’ah qualifications to be entrusted with the contract and conclude it.

If a conqueror came about and took the ruling by force he does not become a Caliph by that, even if he announces himself as Caliphof the Muslims, since the Caliphate was not contracted to him by the Muslims. If he took the pledge of allegiance from the people by force and compulsion, he does not become the Calipheven if he was given the pledge, since the pledge given through compulsion and force is not considered, and so the Caliphate cannot be contracted by it. This is because a contract of choice and consent cannot be completed through compulsion and force, and so it is not contracted except through a pledge given with satisfaction and consent. However, if this conqueror managed to convince the people that it was in the benefit of the Muslims to give him the pledge, and that the implementation of the Shari’ah would be complete through giving the pledge to him – and so the people became convinced and satisfied with that and gave him the pledge of allegiance on that basis with their own choice, then he would become the Caliphfrom the moment that he was given that pledge by the people freely even though he took the authority through force and power. Therefore, the condition is the contracting of the pledge, and this is only reached through consent and choice, irrespective of whether the one who reached it was the ruler and leader, or wasn’t.
