These forums support the Institute’s broad goals by providing a unique dialogical space for scholars, experts, thought leaders, and community organisers to collectively address topics of importance to the Muslim Umma and its future.


The Ummatics Institute publishes original research papers on a range of ummatic issues for the benefit of scholars, students, and enthusiasts alike.


The Muslim Umma is in a paradoxical state—potentially strong but marginalized. Increased numbers, education, and connectivity clash with post-colonial borders, leading to divisions. Global changes and civilizational nationalisms pose challenges.

وَكَذَٰلِكَ جَعَلْنَـٰكُمْ أُمَّةًۭ وَسَطًۭا لِّتَكُونُوا۟ شُهَدَآءَ عَلَى ٱلنَّاسِ وَيَكُونَ ٱلرَّسُولُ عَلَيْكُمْ شَهِيدًۭا ۗ 

“And thus we have made you a just community that you will be witnesses over the people and the Messenger will be a witness over you.”

Ummatics Foundations

Ummatics Foundations studies how ummatic thought and practice can uniquely, feasibly, and preferably solve the various social, political, economic, ethical, and spiritual challenges facing the Muslim Umma.

What is Ummatics?

This essay introduces “ummatics” and the mission of the Ummatics Institute, serving as the first in a series that explains the vision and foundations of the ummatics project. It highlights the unique importance of ummatic solidarity in Islam and how it motivates believers to undertake challenging missions. 

Who Wants the Caliphate?

A word loaded like no other, “caliphate” summons deep memories and desires for some and ominous fears for others. For some fourteen centuries, notwithstanding some discontinuities, the Muslim world had been synonymous with the caliphate.
