khaled Jamil Mohsen


The study explores a subject of a great importance as ; it contributed to the analysis of the concept of the caliphate state in the intellectual narrative of Al-Qaeda. The analysis approach was mainly used in this study, in addition to using the exploration approach in investigating the nature of the Al-Qaeda political intellect in regards to the concept of caliphate. It was found through the study that even though Al-Qaeda’s ultimate goal is regaining the lost caliphate, their leaders, Bin Laden and Al-Thawahiri wanted to achieve that through a gradual approach. Both leaders saw that the establishment of the caliphate must happen at the right time , and that international enemies must be removed so a fair and a secure Islamic state will be established, they also believe that the first the establishment of the caliphate is the first step in developing the Islamic state or the Islamic rule.
