Ali Abdel Raziq
The Egyptian intellectual and author.
His theory that 'Caliphate' was not an integral part of Islam, brought the wrath of the Muslims. His argument against the Caliphate was probably an effort to deny King Faud of Egypt the ability to appropriate the Khilafat after the abolition of the Caliphate (1924) by Mustafa Kamal Pasha of Turkey.
He authored Al-Islam Wa Usul Al Hukum, Ba'th Fi Al Khillafah Wa Al Hukumah Fi Al-Islam.
