15.2 At the collective level: unfus
Unfus is the plural of nafs. The purpose of mankind at the collective level i.e. the level of the unfus is the consolidation of human beings into a single entity (umut ul wahada). This requires the establishment of the Islamic State in which mankind will be able to establish Allah’s laws, their deen, that is, a comprehensive way of life beneficial to all of mankind. Some details on the concept of deen were given earlier in chapter 2.
