Liyakat Takim, professor of Islamic Studies at Denver University and Sharjah Chair in Global Islam at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada addressed the question whether the establishment of an Islamic government is discernible from the holy Quran or the Prophet’s tradition, saying "The Quran has mentioned the basics of no governmental system in details.”
"The Quran stresses the necessity and goals for the establishment of a government,” he asserted.
The author of Shi’ism in America stated "The goal for the establishment of a government is being mentioned in the Quran as the prevalence of social equalitarian rule.”
Takim added "What we see as different types of government is the result of the experiments Muslims have had through history.”
He also said "The necessity and goals for the establishment of a government are emphasized in the Quran.”
