“The movement of Pakistan which the Quaid –e –Azam launched
was ethical in inspiration and ideological in content. The story of this movement is a story of the ideals of equality, fraternity and social and economic justice struggling against the forces of domination, exploitation, intolerance and tyranny".
Mader -e- Millat (Mother of the Nation) Fatima Jinnah (1893 - 1967)
THE PRINCIPALITY OF CHIBISTAN
"You are free; you are free to go to your temples. You are free to go to your mosques or any other place of worship in this state of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion, caste or creed - that has nothing to do with the business of the state".
Qaid -e-Azam, Muhammad Ali Jinnah (1876 - 1948)
The Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. came to Yathrib (later renamed Madina) following the migration of his followers in what is known as Hijrah in 622 AD. The Prophet's Madina was the first Islamic state and government in the world. He drafted a constitution so perfect spiritually, socially and politically that it freed the people of tyranny and oppression and taught Muslim, Jew and Christian to live side by side as one ummah (community).
By applying the gradual unfolding of divine commandments, The Prophet s.a.w moulded the hitherto ignorant Arabs into an ummah. Expounding the eternal miracle of the Holy Qur'an and setting his own divinely inspired personality as a practical example, he firmly erected the pillars of justice and virtue where people of all religions and creeds lived in harmony.
Over the centuries that followed, many Islamic empires rose to magnificent heights by adhering to the covenants of the Qur'an and by following the example of The Prophet s.a.w. Eventually, they all fell into decline and eventually perished. Historians tell us that all civilisations and empires eventually suffer a decline and fall, that it is a natural progression as eventually decay sets in and that nothing lasts forever and so forth. It's as if the law of gravity of 'what goes up must come down' applies to rulers and dynasties.
Islam however, is not an empire - nor a set of rituals for worship - it is a way life explained to mankind via the Holy Qur'an. Perhaps these Islamic empires were never run along the lines of The Prophet's Madina? Perhaps they tried at first and eventually failed? One thing is certain, that if a state is run with the pristine purity of the Qur'an as its guide, it would surely be protected by Allah the Almighty.
By the turn of the 20th century, desire to create such a state in the Indian sub-continent was put forward by a Cambridge educated Lahore barrister named Muhammad Iqbal. Iqbal was a visionary beyond his time. A barrister, writer, poet, philosopher, politician and above all, an Islamic visionary unlike any other in the twentieth century. In his book 'The Reconstruction of Religious Thought in Islam' (1934 Oxford Press) he called for a re-examination of the intellectual foundations of Islamic philosophy. The book is a thought-provoking major work of Islamic thought.
Sir Dr Allama Muhammed Iqbal's mission was to awaken the people of India from its slumber and free them from the shackles of imperial slavery. He urged them to rise to the challenge and once again take charge of their destiny.
He did not limit himself to India... his message was to the entire ummah. Among others, he reminded the Turks of their former glory of the Ottoman Empire and with his poetry, he encouraged them to rise again. In 2019 President Erdogan acknowledged Iqbal's role in inspiring his nation to independence and thanked Pakistan for Iqbal.
Allama Iqbal had lit the torch to create Pakistan. He did not live to see its creation, but he passed on the torch to a Bombay barrister named Muhammad Ali Jinnah, who was at the time a member of the All India Congress Party.
From then until independence, armed with a feverish determination, Jinnah fought against insurmountable odds to create a Muslim homeland along the lines of The Prophet's Madina. The Qaid -e- Azam, Muhammad Ali Jinnah saw to the creation of Pakistan on August 14th 1947. It was the first country specifically created for a Muslim ummah.
Today Pakistan is an on-going struggle to create a utopian society for all its citizens regardless of their religion, gender, class, caste or creed.
This homepage cannot possibly do justice to the mammoth jihad (struggle) and remarkable achievements of Iqbal and Jinnah, however their lives and works are well documented and can be easily accessed.
Chibistan is a small region within Pakistan that aims to become a city along the lines of The Prophet's (s.a.w.) Madina. By doing so it is contributing in a small way, towards the Qaid's vision for the entire Pakistan.

Sabaq phir padh sadaqat ka, adalat ka, shujahat ka
Lia jai ga tuj se kaam duniya ki amamat ka.
Read again the lesson of truth,
of justice, of valour
Then will the world be entrusted to you.
