Constitution of the Caliphate State / Governors

Article 55: Coordination between governor and Caliph

The Constitution of the Caliphate State, Article 55: The governor is not obliged to inform the Caliph (Khalifah) of what he has carried out within his authorised command. If a new problem arises which has no precedent, he has to inform the Khalifah about it first, and he then proceeds according to the instructions of the Khalifah. If he was afraid that the problem would be exacerbated if delayed, he carries out the action and then must inform the Khalifah later on about the reason for not informing him beforehand.

The evidence is that the Prophet  صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم empowered his governors and did not request them to inform him of what actions they undertook and they did not use to report to him about anything. Rather, they used to undertake their actions with full independence, each of them ruling in his leadership by his opinion; this was the manner of Mu’adh, and ’Attab Bin Asid, Al-’Ala’ b. Al-Hadrami, and of all of the governors of the Messenger of Allah  صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم – which indicates that the governor does not inform the Khalifah about anything from his actions. And in this regard, he is different from the assistant, since the assistant must inform the Khalifah about every action that he undertakes, whereas it is not obligatory upon the governor to inform the Khalifah about any of his actions.

It is obligatory that the Khalifah scrutinise every action the assistant undertakes, whereas it is not necessary for him to scrutinise every action of the governor, though he studies the situation of the governors and scrutinises the news from them. Accordingly, the governor has unrestricted action in his governorship, which is why Mu’adh said to the Messenger  صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم when he was sent to Yemen I will exert my own opinion.”; so this is evidence that the governor does not inform the Khalifah, rather he exercises his opinion. It is not forbidden to take the opinion of the Khalifah in the important issues, but he does not seek his opinion in unimportant issues in order that the interests of the people are not delayed. If something new occurs, he leaves it to the opinion of the Khalifah, because the empowerment of the governorship is that the Khalifah delegates the leadership of a city or region to the governor which is a governorship over all its people, and control in the known issues from his actions. So if a new issue which was not previously known occurred, it is left for the examination of the Khalifah, unless it was feared that this would be detrimental, in which case the governor undertakes the issue and then informs the Khalifah, since it was an issue that was unprecedented.
