Chapter Summary

The relation between public international law and municipal law has been one of the most important topics of international law. Their theories have caused serious controversy between various international lawyers and this problem is one of the most important issues in the field of public international law. Islamic international law does not generally differ in a number of significant details from the Islamic states' domestic systems. One important aspect of Islamic international law is that it is not based, as the system of international law is, on the extreme doctrines of sovereignty. Under Islamic law, the political system is founded on three basic consolidated principles. These are the principle of tawhid, the principle of risala and the principle of khilafat. These principles constitute the basic phenomenon of Islamic law and Islamic international law for the orientation and the employment of the Islamic system.

Keywords: Islamic international law; khilafat; municipal law; risala; tawhid
