The object of writing on the subject of the political philosophy of the Prophet Muhammadﷺ is to show mankind how the Prophetﷺ initiated the movement of liberty, equality, fraternity and justice in the Arabian Peninsula and how it gradually spread to other countries of the world; and how this seed-pot of learning, sown in the fertile plains and valleys of Spain by the Arabs circulated unimpeded for centuries throughout the peninsula of Spain and the South of France. Then from there it radiated to the rest of Europe and across the Channel to England. Thus manifold influences from the civilisation of Islam bathed European life in their radiance in diverse ways.
