"Theory and Practice of Muslim State in India" is a book by historian K.S. Lal published in 1999. It is a study on Muslim administration in India.

In the first part of the book, Lal writes about the obligations, income and expenditure of the Muslim government in India. The expenditure for monuments, for the army, for "royal benevolence" and for gifts to Caliphs and to Mecca are discussed. In the second part he writes about the concept of "Muslim State" in today's India. The third part of the book contains reviews of some of Lal's books and his reply to them.

During his research for this book, K.S. Lal has read and consulted six authentic Hadis, the Bukhari, Muslim, Nasai, Sunan Abi Da'ud, Sunan al-Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah, as well as the Quran and biographies of Muhammad.
