This book is an attempt to propose a strategy for the Muslim nation based on both internal analysis of the Muslim nation and the environmental analysis. The intention is to achieve the Islamic strategic objectives, protect our Muslim nation from surrounding risks and eliminate its weaknesses and ignominy.
The recommended candidates to implement this strategy are all the individuals within the Muslim nation who are found in its different classes, positions and social statues, with their different sects and tendencies, as well as the other elements of the Muslim nation, who make up its institutions. These are scholars and administrators of religious endowments. The core idea of this strategy is that when the simple, small efforts and contributions of the Muslim nation are implemented towards spreading the Islamic message, they fall in line with each other, and become able to accomplish the impossible. Even if a percentage less than 1% participated, the goals of the Muslim nation, would form an unstoppable power.
“I have read the content of this book and I realized the extent of effort exerted in its preparation. Undoubtedly, it contributes to the enrichment of the discussion about the best alternatives and policies to be followed by Islamic Countries to achieve its strategic objectives and vital resources.”

“An engrossing and thoroughly objective piece of work which seeks to transcend the reasoning behind the current difficulties and the options open for strategic development concerning Islamic Nations with regard to a global context. Viewpoints are discussed in a rational and balanced manner. The fundamentals for progression are researched, proposed and critically evaluated from a standpoint that allows many avenues for exploration to be suitably addressed. This is a supremely important book in the current global climate which seeks to draw together the attitudes and thoughts of many, assess the understanding and rationale behind this, then propose a harmonious yet focused direction that can be achieved for the Islamic Nation. A compelling examination of critical times, Abbas Al Humaid displays here the same qualities of scholarly rigour, careful argument and sound judgement that he brought to bear so successfully in his first book ‘How to Plan Your Career.”

“Islamic Strategy’ by the Omani researcher Abbas Al Hameed comprises dream and science. The researcher dreams that the Muslim nation reach the stage of being unified and strengthened. Achieving such a dream, he employs his scientific knowledge and experiences. He is a dreamer in some of his suggestions, but he plays the role of capable scientist in his approaches and suggestions.
