L'islam et les fondements du pouvoir (Islam et societe) by Ali ABDERRAZIQ,Abdou FILALI-ANSARY


Théologien et juriste reconnu, Ali Abderraziq prône une séparation radicale du spirituel et du temporel : il montre que le Prophète est un advisor spirituel et non un roi de ce monde. Ses préceptes pour le gouvernement des hommes n'impliquent en rien les fondements d'un " État islamique " qui n'a jamais existé, pas même aux premiers temps de l'Umma.
(Cette édition numérique reprend, à l'identique, l'édition originale de 1994.)

L'essai fondateur d'Ali Abderraziq sur los angeles nature de l'autorité politique dans le monde islamique a suscité lors de sa parution en 1925 des polémiques enflammées dans l. a. presse et l'élite intellectuelle égyptienne, et entraîné los angeles condamnation temporaire de son auteur par ses pairs, les oulémas d'Al-Azhar. Théologien et juriste reconnu, Ali Abderraziq y prône une séparation radicale du spirituel et du temporel : il montre que le Prophète est un consultant spirituel et non un roi de ce monde. Ses préceptes pour le gouvernement des hommes n'impliquent en rien les fondements d'un " État islamique " qui n'a jamais existé, pas même aux premiers temps de l'Umma. Aucun principe religieux n'interdit donc aux musulmans d'édifier leur État et leur société sur los angeles base des dernières créations de los angeles raison humaine et des systèmes politiques que l'expérience des countries a désigné comme étant parmi les meilleurs. L'œuvre pionnière d'Ali Abderraziq, qui a suscité des dizaines de commentaires et de réfutations depuis près de soixante-dix ans, reste par los angeles tranquille radicalité de son propos un second indépassé de l. a. pensée réformiste islamique et un outil necessary pour penser aujourd'hui les rapports entre los angeles Loi, le pouvoir et le religieux dans le monde arabe et musulman.
