Abstract


xt-stroke-width: 0px; "> This paper deals with the thoughts of MuhammadAbid al-Jabiri (d. 2010), a prominent philosopher from Morocco, on the crisis of politics in the Arab world, by examining one of his great books entitled al-‘Aql al- Siya>si al-‘Arabi (Arab Political Reasoning). This book is the third work from the sequence Naqd al-‘Aql al-‘Arabi (Critique of Arab Reasoning). The Arab political reasoning here refers to a collection of motives (muhaddida > t > ) in politics and their theoretical and practical manifestations (tajalliyat > ). This paper analyzes the sense of crisis that constitutes al-Jabiri’s thoughts on Arab political reasoning. This paper then describes the three theoretical frameworks he utilized, which were “aqidah >
(doctrine)”, “ghanimah > (booty)” and “qabi>lah (tribe)”, and their application in the reading politics of the earliest period of Islamic history. Finally, this writing concludes with some points regarding al-Jabiri’s contribution to Islamic studies.
