الأناركيَّة في التصور الإسلامي
The concept of of Anarchism in Islam
This study deals with one of the most famous modern political theories, Anarchism. This theory denies the necessity of political authority in society, based on the notion that the existence of political authority would rob the independence and freedom of individuals, which are more important than political authority itself. The theory was advocated by prominent philosophers of different ideologies, such as William Godwin, Piper Joseph Proudhon, Mikhail Bakunin, and Peter Kropotkin. The research paper begins by analysing the concept of Anarchism and then discusses the term chosen by the Arab translators of Anarchism and Philosophy on which the Anarchists depend to reject the idea of political authority and base their argument. Finally, the study ends with a discussion of the Islamic position on the issue of dealing with power, to clarify the difference between the Islamic and Anarchist conceptions. The research relied on the analytical method of discussing and analysing the texts of Anarchist theorists, as well as analysing the Islamic context related to the issue.
