Beginning in the late eighteenth century, Ottoman Empire became the first Muslim state to reform its administrative, educational, military, and eventually the political systems. Reformist thinkers who grew up during the late Ottoman era who produced their work during the republican period constitute the first generation of these post-Ottoman reformist thinkers. A respected statesman and diplomat, Said Halim Pasha was first and foremost an influential thinker, one of the most outspoken representatives of the Islamist school during the Second Constitutional Period (1908-1920). In his famous work entitled lslami-zation (Islamlashmaq), Said Halim proposes a complete Islamization of Mus-lim society, which includes forgetting their pre-Islamic past and purifying themselves of their pre-Islamic heritage. This study will be focused on Said Halim Pasha’s views of politics relating to Islamization.
