The Constitution of Medina, also known as the Charter of Medina, was drafted by the Muslim Prophet Muhammad and constituted a formal agreement between himself and all of the significant tribes and families of Yathrib (later known as Medina) in 622.
The precise dating of the Constitution of Medina remains debated but generally scholars agree it was written shortly after the hijra (622).
Legal Scholar L. Ali Khan says the Constitution of Medina was a social contract derived from a treaty and not from any fictional state of nature or from behind the Rawlsian veil of ignorance.

 Muhammad and Early Islamic Period, Ted Thornton, NMH, Northfield Mount Hermon
The same year (622), the Constitution (or Charter) of Medina was put in place establishing equal justice and freedom of religion for Jews and Muslims alike and declaring Muhammad the final arbiter of all disputes.
Some accounts claim that Muhammad had been asked to arbitrate between two feuding tribes in Medina, the Aws and the Khazraj, that he was successful, and that a significant number of the members of both tribes converted to Islam.
The Constitution of Medina was seen by many as the fruit of his work of reconciliation in the city.

 ISLAMIC UNIVERSALISM AND THE CONSTITUTION OF MEDINA
Thus it is not surprising to find in the Medinan Constitution those restrictions upon the mawali which latter made it impossible for the non-Arab Muslim mawla to transfer his allegience from one tribe or clan to another without the permission of the group whose mawla he was.
Such seem to be the circumstances reflected in the Medinan Constitution which was tailored to meet the needs of both the inter-tribal Medinan problems and what seems to be the minimum demands of Muhammed’s prophethood.
There are no indications in the Quran and the Medinan Constitution that provisions were made for successors to the prophethood of Muhammed and for the continuation of the inter-tribal system based on this same prophethood.

 The Manila Times Internet Edition | TOP STORIES > One Voice challenges initiative in High Court
He argued that in the absence of any valid law, rule or regulation which prescribes the procedure and requirements to enable the exercise of a people’s initiative, it was only proper that the Comelec rejected the petition.
Even assuming that RA 6735 is a sufficient enabling law, the scope of the people’s initiative is limited to amendments and does not apply to revisions of the Constitution, he said.
Medina said One Voice is also closely monitoring the moves in the House of Representatives to convene itself into a constituent assembly even without the institutional participation of the Senate.

 The Compact of Medina: A Constitutional Theory of the Islamic State
The compact of Medina provides an excellent historical example of two theoretical constructs that have shaped contemporary political theory and should therefore be of great value to those scholars who are involved in the theorizing of the Islamic state.
In simple terms, the first Islamic state established in Medina was based on a social contract, was constitutional in character and the ruler ruled with the explicit written consent of all the citizens of the state.
The Constitution of Medina establishes the importance of consent and cooperation for governance.

 On the eve of Iraq vote, discord on its import - The Boston Globe
Some said casting a vote -- for or against the constitution -- would be their biggest personal role so far in deciding the country's fate; others dismissed it as a necessary evil, a pragmatic step to protect their interests in a political process tainted by US occupation.
But the vote is occurring in a period of unrelenting violence from a Sunni-led insurgency, amid growing ethnic and religious tensions, and in an atmosphere of grating disappointment with the inability of the government and its US backers to provide security, electricity, jobs, and services.
After campaigning hotly against the constitution for months, the party decided this week to support it, in return for a provision that would make it somewhat easier to amend the constitution next year.
