Msg event.pngGeneral Hospital


A suggestion has been put forward to set up a general hospital, to create a place where the needy would be welcomed and assisted. The public health is very important, and to offer a free midwifery course and some establishments to combat disease would increase the well-being of everyone.

Msg event.pngFort Maintenance


Our forts are the most important defense we have against intruders and enemies, but they are in great need of restoration. We would need to increase our taxes in order to fund this, and that will most certainly upset those who pay taxes.

Msg event.pngModernization of the Forts


The forts no longer look as if they would crumble before our eyes, they are now sturdy enough to withstand most attacks to their walls. Their defenses, although now functional and impressive despite their age, are still lacking in comparison to other nation's forts. We would need to dig deep into the pockets of our taxpayers in order to be able to fund the upgrades and the modernization our forts sorely need.

Msg event.pngFalse Beliefs


One of Government's purposes is to spread the true faith and protect it from heresy. It is a noble cause, but when heresy strikes in the very heart of our country it shames us. One of our provinces does not follow the true faith and as our cause is to spread the true faith we must deal with this or be forever shamed.

Msg event.pngForgery of Documents


It was a common defense against annexation and usurpation to forge documents, have them counterfeited or backdated to corroborate one's arguments during times of struggles for expansion of land or privileges. Even now these questionable methods are used, and even we ponder if this practice should benefit us. Hopefully no one will detect the discrepancies...

Msg event.pngA Council after our own Tastes


To our chagrin but not our surprise, the perpetual struggle between the ruler and each institution in country - ecclesiastical, educational, legal, medical, fiscal, administrative and publicistic - only increases with each new reform suggested.

The urban aristocrats and the guilds and the lower classes are in the grips of a conflict, which the advisors of [Root.Owner.GetName] saw as an opportunity to strengthen the [Root.Owner.Monarch.GetTitle]'s influence in the city of [Root.GetCapitalName]. The encouragement by [Root.Owner.Monarch.GetName]'s advisors made the guilds revolt against the aristocrats and they have opened the city gate to allow [Root.Owner.Monarch.GetTitle] [Root.Owner.Monarch.GetName]'s army to occupy the city. This is a great opportunity for us to subject the city to the [Root.Owner.Monarch.GetTitle] and curtail the city's rights!

The heinous heretical book 'The Lanterne of Light' claims that the principal cause of the persecution of the original Christians was the illegal retention of precious goods by priests.

This book has been found in the possession of a relapsed heretic that, despite many years in prison and many tearful abjurations still seem to refuse to change his ways.

Msg event.pngThe Nag's Head Rumor


The whispers and glances when ruler travels the streets of capital are caused by a disturbing rumor. People actually believe that ruler was not consecrated solemnly, but instead was consecrated with a Bible pressed to the neck while inside a tavern of disrepute!

Msg event.pngThe Local Imam Khatib


Heir was the leader of prayers in the masjid and preacher at the congregational prayer on Friday before chosen to rule the country after current ruler. The local community who had elected heir as Imam Khatib will be sad to see heir leave, for few others are as learned and as virtuous in instructing the congregation in the basics of Islam. When heir leaves, religious questions will now have to be asked to someone inferior, but what they will lose, we will gain.

Msg event.pngThe Guiding Principles


Some may argue that the Al-Shura is part of the ruling structure, but not one of its pillars. Meetings should follow the teachings of Islam, consultations the guidelines of the Quran and Sunnah. The leader should be elected from the ones attending to head the meeting. Discussions are based on mushawarah and mudhakarah - deliberation and consensus. Everyone may voice their opinions and the voices of the majority are accepted, as long as it does not violate the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah.

Msg event.pngHeart of Mercy


Ali, cousin of the Prophet once said: 'Infuse your heart with mercy, love and kindness for your subjects. Be not in face of them a voracious animal, counting them as easy prey, for they are of two kinds: either they are your brothers in religion or your equals in creation. Error catches them unaware, deficiencies overcome them, evil deeds and sins are committed by them intentionally and by mistake. So grant them your pardon and your forgiveness to the same extent that you hope God will grant you His pardon and His forgiveness. For you are above them, and he who appointed you is above you, and God is above him who appointed you. God has sought from you the fulfillment of their requirements and He is trying you with them.'

A valuable lesson can be learnt from his words, which we could devote ourselves to, or find ways to incorporate into our administration.

Msg event.pngBayt al-Mal


The House of Wealth administers the taxes and serves as a treasury which manages personal finances and government expenditures. It administers the zakat as well, the tax every wealthy Muslim pays and which will be distributed to those in need, unemployed, injured or otherwise incapable to work. This last year, whatever the problems country had, the inhabitants had a better one. The amount of zakat that flows into the Bayt al-Mal exceeds any expectations we might have had. Now what should we do with this surplus of ducats?

Msg event.pngThe Education of Women


Muhammad, may peace be upon him, praised the women of ansar because shame did not prevent them from learning Islam.

Ghalib al-Ansari al-Sharrat whose works of legal theory, jurisprudence as well as mysticism show her great knowledge of Islamic sciences, are all great examples of what happens when you educate women. Throughout history, women have shown that they are willing and able to learn about Islam and to continue the work with spreading our faith. Giving women the great opportunity to learn and teach, we will be able to spread our faith much faster.

The people of our country are nomads and peasants who live of what the land provides. Our governors need us to decide what we should focus on, taxes or agriculture?

Tax can only be obtained by the development of the land and to demand tax without doing that will ruin our country and destroy its people. Another claims that people will develop the land without interference if tax is demanded of them and they see a reason behind the demand.

Msg event.pngReforms of the Pious


After many meetings, discussions and majlis, our ministers and advisors have brought us different reforms for us to consider. Each has presented their ideas, and we are to choose between two of these. The first one: exclude state officials, such as diplomats and governors, from entering into any business. This to let them fully concentrate on their work and not on anything else, thus hopefully allowing them to do a better job. The second reform: distribute pasture lands and game reserves that now are reserved for the family of the dignitaries among the poor, to cultivate the land. Unpaid labor should also be made illegal.

This property dispute is not the first you have to settle, but it is a rare, sensitive one that must be settled in such a way to avert a cycle of revenge. Both have claims that should give them the right to the land, but which one is true and which one is false?
