The ‘King of Islam’: An Idea and Its Typological Significance

Speaker: Said Amir Arjomand
(Distinguished Service Professor of Sociology/Director of the Stony Brook Institute for Global Studies, State University of New York at Stony Brook)

The revival of the Persian idea of kingship in the tenth century posed a challenge to the Abbasid Caliphate. Al-Ghazali (d. 1111) coined the term, the ‘King of Islam’ (malik/pādshāh-i Islām) to associate Sultan Sanjar with Islam directly, bypassing the Caliph. The idea was transmitted to India by the conquering slave generals who created the Delhi Sultanate. In Iran itself, meanwhile, Ghazan Khan adopted the title of King of Islam upon his conversion in the last decade of the thirteenth century, thus grafting the Persian idea of kingship upon yet another type of Islamicate political regime: the Il-Khanid nomadic empire. The lecture is an essay in Begriffsgeschichte (conceptual history) of this important concept in the history of Islamicate political discourses.
