ABSTRACT
This article analyzes Constitution of Medina according to the principles of Islamic law. In historiographic works, the Constitution of Medina is recorded as a treaty among the Muslims, Jews, and polytheists. According to Islamic law, treaties that are made with non-Muslims are classified in two categories as temporary and permanent. In this classification, the Constitution of Medina is considered separate from the law of debts, and it is placed among the temporary treaties. The fact that the Constitution is considered a temporary treaty does not imply that it is insignificant. The spirit of the Constitution that continues to exist today can be summarized as living in peace with people from different races and faith groups.
