    Abstract

    This article presents the theories of Islamic state as understood and advocated by the two Malay Muslim political parties in Malaysia for Malaysians; these political parties are the Islamic party named the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PMIP), and the Malay nationalist party named the United Malays National Organization (UMNO). For the PMIP, Malaysia is not an Islamic state but for the UMNO, Malaysia is indeed an Islamic state. They have two different theories of Islamic state because Muslim thinkers and scholars have never united in describing the characteristics of an Islamic state. This is evident from the first part of this paper that in brief surveys the names of Islamic state such as the prophetic, caliphate and sultanate states.
