Toppled Pyramid on Nationalism

Nationalism and citizenship are modern phenomena, which aren't discussed in Shari'i texts explicitly. Therefore, our reconciliation with them is only ever going to be a process of political interpretation reconciled with an Ijtihad.

And so the issue becomes one of political argumentation about what is best practically, and not as much about whether this or that bond is Kufr or Islamic?
