“But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (way of life), verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise them up blind on the Day of Resurrection.” [Surah Ta-Ha: 124]
Allah (swt) sent Muhammad (saw) with Islam providing in it a detailed and distinguished ruling system for the people, which is the Khilafah state. Muslims lived under this system from the time of Abu Bakr (ra) until the British colonialists, malicious against Islam, abolished the Uthmani Khilafah in Turkey in 1924. The Khilafah state provided her citizens, Muslims and non-Muslims, with a secure and peaceful life internally, and status and honour in the international arena. Restoring the Khilafah state, whose rulers and politicians are sincere, aware and responsible, and who have the fear of Allah (swt) and rule by the Qur’an and Sunnah is the only way for us to solve our problems and end our hardships.
The head of state in the Khilafah is the Khaleefah; he acts as a guardian for the people, takes cares of them and their affairs, and he is neither an oppressor upon them nor a looter of their wealth as the current Awami-BNP rulers. In order to fulfill his duties as the Amir ul Mu’mineen, the Khaleefah will have with him Mu’awins (assistants) at the centre, and Waalis (governors) and ‘Amils (mayors) at the local level. In Article 52 of the Draft Constitution of the Khilafah published by Hizb ut Tahrir with evidences from the Qur’an and the Sunnah, it is stated,
The Khilafah state as well has a well-structured administrative system to manage the people’s affairs and discharge their interests such as education, health, agriculture, employment, roads and transportations etc. The administrative system consists of Maslaha (offices), Da’ira (departments) and Idara (administration) whose staffs are answerable to the Waali and ‘Amil.
The Waalis and the ‘Amils in the Khilafah state are not local cronies for the Khaleefah who serve themselves and their national leaders like the Awami-BNP mayors and councillors in the current system. Rather they take care of the people and solve the people’s wants and needs just as Muhammad (saw) commanded,
“Whoever is in charge of anything of the Muslims’ affairs, and withdraws himself without solving their needs, poverty, and wants, Allah withdraws Himself on the Day of Judgement from his needs, wants and poverty.” [Al-Hakim]
And, the Messenger of Allah (saw) said,
There is a clear accountability structure within the Khilafah state to account the Waalis or the ‘Amils. The Khaleefah monitors the work of the Waalis and ‘Amils, and continually evaluates their performance. Each Wilayah also has a Majlis ul Wilayah (Wilayah Assembly) elected by the people to raise their issues and complaints. If people complained about a Waali or ‘Amil, the Khaleefah has to remove him from his post. The state also has the Mahkamat ul Madhalim (Court of Unjust Acts), with branches in the Wilayahs, which investigates injustices perpetrated by the state whether the perpetrator of the unjust act was the Khaleefah, his Mu’awins, Waali, ‘Amil or a civil servant, whether there was a plaintiff who brought a case to the court or not. And in Article 90 of the Draft Constitution of the Khilafah Hizb ut Tahrir stated,
We have not summarized here the structure of the Khilafah state and the manner of it’s looking after the people’s affairs for an academic purpose or in order that you may admire the Khilafah system or you may dream of its return some day and until then you continue to accept and live by the current system. Rather this is to remind you and urge you to work with us for the re-establishment of the Khilafah so that you may achieve a secured and peaceful life in this Dunya and save yourselves in the Akhirah. So respond if you will; reject the rule of all the false deen in your life’s affairs, do not place your hopes in democracy and its elections, rather remove the Awami-BNP ruling regime and establish the Khilafah to conduct all your life’s affairs according to Islam which includes the affairs of government, national and local, not just your prayer, fasting and personal Ibadah. Only then you will have abided by the statement of Allah (swt),
إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ الإِسْلاَم (آل عمران: 19ُ
“Truly, the Deen with Allah is only Islam” [Surah Ali-Imran: 19]
