Taji-Farouki's 1996 work A Fundamental Quest: Hizb al-Tahrir and the Search for the Islamic Caliphate is the "only in-depth academic research ever conducted on the movement". Taji-Farouki was given exclusive access to an extensive range of internal Hizb al-Tahrir material and her work comprehensively documents the emergence, history, ideology, strategy and structure of the movement. Taji-Farouki is the only Western academic to have interviewed Ata Khalil Abu-Rashta, the current leader of Hizb al-Tahrir.
