Al-Nabhani belonged to Bani Nabahan and he came from a village by the name of Ajzam in Haifa in Northern Palestine. Al-Nabhani was born in the village of Ajzam 1909. His father, Ibrahim, was a jurist and a scholar of 'Uloom e Sharai in the Ministry of Ma'arif (Knowledge and Arts). He received admission in the eighth grade in Al-Azhar University in 1928 and cleared the exam with distinction in the same year. He was awarded with the certificate of "Shuhada Al Ghurba". After this, he received admission in the science college which was affiliated with Al-Azhar University at that time. He founded Hizb ut-Tahrir on 17 November 1953. He died on 11 December 1977 from the injuries he got during his imprisonment in Iraq.
In his most famous works, written in the early 1950s, al-Nabhani expressed a radical disillusionment with the secular powers that had failed to protect Palestinian nationalism. He argued for a new political and economic order that would be founded on Islamic principles, contrasting these with the dominant idea of a territorial nation-state and materialism that, in his view, was the outcome of capitalist economies. Al-Nabhani was critical of the way the middle east had been carved up into nation states allied with various imperial powers.
