Ahadism (Or the Ahadist School of Thought) is a Kharidian Nationalist ideology that promotes the development of a unified Kharidian state through the leadership of a centralized Sultanate, whose monarchy would be restricted under the boundaries of a constitution.

Adahism also seeks to reforms the Pantheon so it would be able to integrate with Kharidian culture and society, separating the Kharidian people from the grasp of Menaphite spiritual authority.

History

Ahadism

The Orange Banner: A symbol of Ahadism.

Ahadism was developed by philosopher and namesake, Yusuf Al Ahad, who criticised the submission of the Kharidian people to foreigners who ruled the Kharidian "heartland", Al Kharid. Al Ahad saw no unity in the Kharidian people, who had divided into areas of the desert which were usually ruled by opposing states, he believed that the solution was a unified state, which would take on the economic reforms that Emira Aadila Tuhan and shake off Menaphite influence, which is to be achieved through a "Cultural Revolution".

Concepts

Pan-Kharidism and the "Great War"

With the only free Kharidian state being Al Kharid and the rest of the Kharidian "homeland" under Menaphite rule. Al Ahad proposed that a Great War must be waged to free the northern areas of the Desert, which contained a majority of ethnic Kharidians. The idea of a Great War was also seen to be the final battle for the freedom and independence for Kharidia.

The Sultanate

When a unified Kharidian state was made, Al Ahad stated that the Emirate must ascend to a Sultanate, he believed that a centralized state would bring unity among the people. Though skeptic of foreign influence, Al Ahad stated that the new Sultanate would need to gain a developed and powerful economy which could provide for the masses which would join the new Sultanate

Reform and the Head of State

Al Ahad believed that economic reform began in the rule of Aadila Tuhan, believing her to be the ideal Head of State, which ruled with the assistance of a public representative, the Grand Vizier. The use of divine energy and other magical sources would not only create a stable economy, but would also contribute to the Cultural Revolution.

The Cultural Revolution

Possibly the most important concept, Al Ahad believed that the Sultanate would bring a new era of enlightenment to the Desert, which would allow Kharidia to ascend to be a new centre of knowledge for Gielinor. For the Revolution to take place, finer arts such as theatre, art, music and magic should be promoted. Al Ahad proposed the idea of developing a new school system and religious tolerance. He believed that Kharidians should be united by culture and not by religion.

Religious Reform

Aware that the Pantheon is the dominant religion of the Desert, Al Ahad stated that reforms must happen, to be completely free from the grasp of Menaphite Authority. This included creating practices and festivals which would promote Kharidian values and create a separate religious culture from the Menaphites.
