The separation of the Church (religion) and State (politics) was once a compelling argument in the Western society.

What is the role of politics in Islam? How important is it for Muslims to be actively involved in politics? What type of opportunities exist in the political arena for Muslims? Is it even desirable to be seeking political office? What is this obsession with seeking political positions? Can people not engage without seeking political positions?
