Dr. M. Hamidullah
It is a proud heritage of the Muslims that the first-written constitution of a State promulgated in the world by a head of a State originated from no less a personality than the Holy Prophet of Islam himself.
The learned scholar presents in this booklet the Arabic text and English translation of the deed drawn by the Holy Prophet in the first year of the Hijra containing detailed discussion of the prerogatives and obligations of the ruler as well as of other immediate requirements (including a sort of social insurance for the needy). Includes also a scholarly Introduction, an exhaustive Bibliography and a careful Index.
