By the authority of this Covenant and by the power of the ceremony of Supreme Instantiation of the Powers and Authority of Caliph, a Caliph shall have the following real ceremonial and spiritual authorities:
(i) The Caliph shall themselves become a most Holy Instrument of Power, a Holy Person of high spiritual importance, a living embodiment of the new Covenant between Heaven and Earth, between Earth and Nation; and
(ii) When a Caliph speaks in regards to the holy scripture of One Islam, it shall be recognized as having authority within their Nation; and

By the very definition of the role, the Caliph is the purest form of teacher and guide. It is for the value of the message and the discourse of knowledge. It is not for the closing or entrapment of mind, but the freeing of the chains that make us believe we are less.
The Caliph embodies the very covenant of this Covenant and as such each Caliph represents in themselves and their role an instrument of power- a living national embodiment of this Covenant.
By this Covenant, the Supreme Council of One-Islam are authorized to forge a formal set of protocols and standards regarding the Office of Caliph which relates to the detailed definition and requirements of operational procedure and function necessitated by such a high office.
These standards themselves must embody and be consistent with the specific articles of this Covenant and in turn must be approved by a vote of the Supreme Council of One-Islam.
