RasulAllah (saw) said: “…then there will be Khilafah on the Method of Prophethood”
Hizb ut Tahrir calls upon the Muslim Ummah!
Join the Work to establish the Khilafah to fulfill the Glad Tidings of RasulAllah (saw)
The Khilafah (Caliphate) of the Muslim Ummah ruled for 1300 glorious years before being destroyed by the Kafir Colonialist Britain with the active collaboration of the traitor secular Kamal “Ataturk” in 1342 AH (1924 CE). After the destruction of the Khilafah, Capitalism, including Democracy, has dominated the necks of people all over the world in general, and in Muslim countries in particular, plunging the whole world into permanent misery, and the West has seized and plundered the world’s wealth, exterminated some peoples and enslaved others. By losing the Khilafah and arbitrating with other than the Law of Allah (swt), the Ummah lost the honor, dignity, security and the shield to protect herself from her enemies, and lost the divine scholars who say the word of truth and fear nothing but Allah (swt), and her political, economic and other decisions were confiscated. When the colonial Kafir was able to gain control of our lands and plunder its resources, they was not satisfied with that, but made the blood of Muslims flow in rivers and penetrated our lands with destruction, and even now the blood of Muslims is flowing are Yemen, Libya, Syria, Palestine, Kashmir, Chechnya and Myanmar, and poverty prevails therein. The Kafir West even dared to repeatedly insult the Divine Entity, His Noble Book, His Messenger (saw) and the Sunnah of the Messenger (saw), and the honorable companions and the mosques of Muslims.
Not only this, the colonial Kafir resorted to all methods that prevent the return of Islam and its spread among mankind, including distorting the image of Islam and describing it as a religion of terrorism, backwardness and injustice to women in order to frighten their own people and justify their crimes against Muslims. The Kafir West would not have extended its influence over the world, wreaked havoc on Earth, and destroyed crops and animals if the Muslims had a Khaleefah (Caliph): who would mobilize armies to help the oppressed of the world and spread justice on Earth, let alone allowing aggression of the Kuffar on Muslims.
O Muslims, you are the best people raised up for humanity; Allah (swt) says, “You are the best people that has been raised for the mankind. You enjoin good, forbid evil, and believe in Allah.” [Al-i-Imran: 110]. So, you are the Ummah of “Wasat”, a just people that will be witnesses over other people, and after the last Prophet (saw) continue to look after mankind. Allah (swt) says, “And so We have made you ˹believers˺ an upright Ummah so that you may be witnesses over humanity and that the Messenger may be a witness over you.” [Surah Al-Baqarah: 143]. From Khaleefah Abu Bakr (ra) to Khaleefah Abdul Mazid II (1342 Hijri, 1924 CE), the Muslim Ummah fulfilled this responsibility through the Khilafah system. In 637 CE Khaleefah Omar (ra) opened Al-Aqsa, the first Qibla of Muslim, through the liberation of that land from the Jews, which is now regularly being dishonored by the Jews, their hands soaked in the blood of Muslims; in 711 CE, under Khaleefah Al-Walid bin Abdul Malik, the Commander Mohammad Bin Qasim fought and defeated the oppressor extremist-Hindutva King Dahir and introduced the golden age of Hindustan; in 838 CE, Khaleefah Muhtasim Billah mobilized the army in response to the insult of a Muslim woman by Roman soldiers and liberated Amuriya from the Roman Emperor; with the conquest of Constantinople in 1453, Sultan Mohammed al-Fateh saved the people of that land from the tyranny of the Roman Emperor Constantine; Khaleefah Abdul Majid I, during the Great Depression in Ireland (1845-1852 CE), ignored the British Queen’s ban and sent five ships to the port of Drogheda to help the starving people there; in 1890, Khaleefah Abdul Hamid forced France and Britain to stop showing dramas insulting RasulAllah (saw) by threatening to declare war on them; these are just a few examples from the glorious history of the Khilafah State, which show how the Muslim Ummah served as the ‘Ummatun Wasata’. In fulfilling this responsibility, the Muslim Ummah was at the peak in all aspects of civilization in the world, including education, medicine, science and technology, infrastructure, communication and architecture; this was the basis on which was started the so-called civilization of the West, about which the West is so proud today! The Ummah lost its authority after the demolition of its Khilafah, and the West imposed on her neck the ruwaibidha (foolish) agents, so the Ummah must regain its usurped power from them, and appoint a Khaleefa who will take care of her affairs with Islam, because “Imam (Caliph) is the shepherd and he is responsible for his flock” [Sahih Bukhari].
The renowned scholars agreed that the Imamate (Caliphate) is an obligation, and that Muslims must have an Imam (Caliph) who carries out the duties of the Deen, among them are: Al-Juwaini, Ibn Hazm, Al-Mawardi, Ibn Hajar Al-Asqalani, Al-Haythami, Ibn Khaldoun, Al-Nasfi, Al-Ghaznawi, Al-Qurtubi, Ibn Taymiyyah, Al-Shawkani, Ibn Ashour, Al-Jaziri. RasulAllah (saw) said, “And who ever dies while there were no Bai’ah (pledge of allegiance) on his neck, his death would be as that of the days of Jahiliyyah (ignorance).” [Sahih Muslim]. Therefore it is obligatory for each Muslim to Join in the political struggle to re-establish the Khilafah.
O Muslims, You know that Hizb ut Tahrir under the leadership of the eminent scholar Sheikh Ata bin Khalil abu Al-Rastah, working to re-establish the Khilafah on the Method of Prophethood. Hizb ut Tahrir is the frontrunner that does not lie to its people and it is working among you for more than sixty years, and sacrificing self and the most precious for the sake of your revival and to take care of your affairs with Islam. And it is the only one who possesses the correct methodology to treating all life’s problems. Hizb ut Tahrir has elaborated to the Ummah how Islam ensures the basic needs of the citizens of the State, such as food, clothing, shelter, education, medical care and security, achieves internal and global status and spreads justice, helps the oppressed and liberates the oppressed, has an unique economic system and currencies based on gold and silver, and gives non-Muslims the opportunity to represent them in the Majlis-al-Ummah of the Khilafah State in order to protect their rights. Therefore, in order to run the State with Islam, Hizb ut Tahrir has prepared the draft constitution of the Khilafah State on the basis of the Qur’an and Sunnah, and has highlighted the government and administrative structure in that constitution. Lastly, they are fully prepared to run the Khilafah State by the Will of Allah (swt).
O Muslims, RasulAllah (saw) said, “…then there will be a Khilafah on the Method of Prophethood”. [Musnad Ahmed]. By this Messenger (saw) gave us the glad tiding for the return of the Khilafah on the Method of Prophethood, that will fill the Earth with justice that dispels the injustice of the forcible rule that has exhausted mankind. You know that, the glad tidings of RasulAllah (saw) are promises from Allah (swt) for us. And the promise of Allah (swt) will be implemented by our effort, because “Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.” [Ar-Ra’d: 11]. This is Allah’s established way of change, so the Ummah must get rid of its weakness and degradation by returning to the Book of Allah (swt) and the Sunnah of His Messenger (saw) and work with Hizb ut Tahrir to restore the Khilafah. You are witnessing that Capitalism is about to fall globally and their inability to prevent the return of Islam and the establishment of the Khilafah State is visible to all. Hizb ut Tahrir calls upon the Muslim Ummah: Join in the work to establish the Khilafah to fulfill the glad tiding of RasulAllah (saw) as part of the responsibility of your Iman.
“Allah has promised those of you who believe and do good deeds that He will certainly make them successors in the land, as He did with those before them; and will surely establish for them their faith which He has chosen for them; and will indeed change their fear into security—˹provided that˺ they worship Me, associating nothing with Me. But whoever disbelieves after this ˹promise˺, it is they who will be the rebellious”. [Surah An-Nur: 55]
