The research consists of introduction, four chapters and research findings. It began with the life history of Hamed Rabee and his most important writings; which were classified according to different fields that show the encyclopedic knowledge of Rabee, which is reflected also in his integrative methodology of setting political theory in the light of different Islamic and social sciences. One of the main legacies of Rabee was paving the way for the establishment of a school of contemporary Islamic political thoughts and theories in Egypt. The research dealt also with his views on the Islamic Political heritage and its importance to political realities of the Ummah today; defining the reasons for the neglect of this aspect of Islamic legacy and the obstacles to the efforts to revive Islamic political inheritance. Rabee has also categorized the resources which students, political scientists and Muslim politician could refer to in their research or political life especially those who actively participate in any democratic process. The final chapter presents what Rabee refers to as the main pillars for formulating of Islamic Political Theory such as: political justice, moderation and reconciliation, the social nature of the Islamic political thought, the relation between thoughts, movements and real politics in the Islamic history and traditions, the Dawaah responsibility toward humanity.
