Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah of Yemen launched several campaigns last Rajab, by aiming to rally the people of Yemen to rise and carry out the work to resume the Islamic way of life by the establishment of the Khilafah, which is an obligation from Allah upon them and all the Muslims; and to remind them of the painful 93rd anniversary of the destruction of the Khilafah, which the Kaffir crusader West worked for its destruction in collusion with a group of Arabs and Turks traitors. This was achieved, as the Khilafah was abolished in 28 Rajab 1342 AH corresponding to 3rd of March 1924 CE, this caused the humiliation, disgrace, and miserable lives of Muslims. They became an easy prey for nations’ attack, like eaters rush to the food bowl, even though they are many in number. Their countries are divided, their honor are violated, their sanctities are desecrated, and their wealth is squandered, borders were drawn between them, the Shariah of Allah was removed from their life, and their rulers who control them are slaves to the West. The Prophet (saw) was truthful when he said that we have become like the foam of the sea!
The campaigns that took place in Yemen include:
The first campaign:
The distribution of a written address on the painful 93rd anniversary of the destruction of the Khilafah state; members of the Hizb delivered it specifically to Imams and scholars in several major cities of Yemen including: the capital Sana’, Imran Province, Ta’iiz, Aden, Makla, Ibb, Dhimar, and others. Many addresses were distributed to the target personalities, and by the grace of Allah many Imams spoke about the topic and quoted from the address delivered to them. This allowed thousands of Muslims to remember that painful day and that great state and wish for its near return; this is not difficult for Allah to fulfil. The address included an explanation of the obligation to work for Khilafah and its importance in the life of Muslims and human beings. It mentioned some accounts of dignity and glory that Muslims enjoyed during the time of the Khilafah, which is missed by Muslims after the destruction of the Khilafah and specifically under the agent rulers appointed by the West to protect their interests who are humiliated slaves achieved only humiliation and disgrace for the Islamic Ummah.
The second campaign:
Large banners were hung in main areas in the major cities for people to see. Also by organized and eye catching writings on the walls of the main roads. Members of the Hizb hung many banners in all the cities mentioned above. They included words that encourage Muslims to work for the Khilafah and explain to them its importance and its uniqueness compared to other man-made systems. Here are some of the statements on the banners:
(Khilafah is the Promise of Allah and Prophecy of the Prophet (saw))
(Khilafah is the source of our glory and our way to revival and the answer to our unity)
(We lived under Khilafah for centuries and we will lead the world once again)
(Khilafah is Shariah rules that illuminates darkness)
(The upcoming Khilafah is the way for liberation from all types of occupation)
(There are no colonial borders in the upcoming Khilafah - only one Islamic Ummah)
(No Civil State, No Democracy, Only Khilafah Islamiyyah)
Praise be to Allah for the interaction this created among the people of Yemen. Many contacted us in support and expressed their readiness to work with us, except the few who cannot bear the mention of the word ‘Khilafah’ and who were fooled by the mirage of democracy and the civil state, and were blinded by filthy prejudice and cannot see the light.
It is mind baffling that some security officers or some who are associated to Islam and to Islamic parties, took down the banners, while the streets are full of slogans calling for democracy, the civil state, and implementation of the National Dialogue recommendations. And at a time when the streets are filled with the slogans of other parties calling for degenerative thoughts of patriotism, nationalism, communism, democracy, or for a specific school of thought, or the dreadful secularism, or calls for Fitna and killing between Muslims, leading to the corruption of the country and the people.
What we also find it strange are the statements of some hired Imams who do not comprehend the scale of responsibility on their shoulders that Allah put on them. Instead of teaching people about their Deen, and the obligations upon them, we see the opposite; they teach people about their National Day festivities, democracy, the republic system, and the recommendations of the ominous national dialogue. They even wage a campaign against the Khilafah which is the obligation of all obligations, with the pretext that the Ummah is not ready for it, or that to call for it at this time will cause Fitna?! They have fallen in Fitna!
We thank the Imams who answered the call of truth, and delivered it to the people, fearless of any blame for the sake of Allah (swt). We say to them, may Allah (swt) bless you and reward your deeds. This is an obligation upon you and is rewarded immensely by Allah (swt). So continue to proclaim the truth and encourage people to establish the Khilafah and remind them of its importance and greatness, and work with the sincere workers, the members of Hizb ut Tahrir for this great obligation, the work for it is not seasonal, and not for the sake of crying over ruins, but it is a diligent and continuous work with resolve that shakes mountains, and patience that defeats all the ignorant, until the Islamic life returns under the rightly guided Khilafah upon the method of the Prophethood. By this, we would have gained the pleasure of Allah (swt) and saved ourselves from the sin when we meet Him (swt) and rescued our Ummah from its loss and from the conniving West’s hegemony.
O people of Yemen, O people of Iman and Wisdom:
Hizb ut Tahrir invites you to answer the call of Allah (swt), so that you live as Allah (swt) has decreed, and not by the dictates of the West to follow their way of life. We have pledged allegiance to work for Allah’s cause and implement His (swt) Shariah. Despite what the actions of some who are associated to the Ummah, which tarnish the Khilafah and those who work for it, they are the ones mobilized by the rulers to carry out this role which we became accustomed to in order to distract people away from the Khilafah and those who are working for it, so that those rulers and rotten systems; monarchies, republics, democracies which are in their last breath, to live on, so let them dream!
The sun will not be hidden by the dust of the revolutionary, the Khilafah will not return by the hands of the one who does not proclaim it in front of a tyrant ruler. The Ummah will follow the one who carries the projects of the Kaffir West, even if they were successful in fooling the Ummah for a while. O people of Yemen, know that the Khilafah is coming, by the permission of Allah, even if the West and the humiliating tyrants detest it.
Here is the Ummah surrounding the sincere workers for the Khilafah all over the lands. Whenever the war against the Hizb and its members intensifies, the more they are embraced by the Ummah and the more it is elevated to a higher status, and it is by the grace of Allah (swt), and the strength of resolve and patience of the Dawah carriers, so work with the sincere workers for the establishment of the Khilafah, do not be distracted away from the work by the ones who spread lies. Know that Hizb ut Tahrir does not carry out material action, it does not carry weapons as a way to establish the Khilafah and does not carry out assassinations, and is not seduced by democracy and positions and ministries. It only works for the establishment of the Khilafah following the method of our noble Prophet (saw) which he (saw) followed according to the Command of Allah (swt) until he established his State.
