At the beginning of the era of the Islamic State, Rashidan Khalfta (Khalfa-i-Rashdeen) headed the Islamic governors and principals. In Muslim society, the basic methods of life, knowledge, and social justice were being followed. This period was an example of a powerful and just state, which spread the light of Islamic knowledge and culture throughout the world.
The rise and spread of Islam is an example of how a prophet used his knowledge and security And built a society and a state in the light of the guidance of Allah Ta’ala. Muhammad PBUH taught Muslim society the importance of justice, a good way of life, and worship of Allah Ta’ala. His journey was a source of mercy for the world and a great companion for the hereafter.
