97 Years of Mourning and Languishing under the Yoke of Colonial Capitalism

For almost 1300 years living under the guardianship of the Khilafah (Caliphate), the Ummah enjoyed peace, tranquility and prosperity throughout the period. However, everything came to a halt on 28 Rajab 1342 AH corresponding to 3 March 1924 CE when hypocrites and opportunists lured by the Kafir culture and fascinated by its way of life led by Mustafa Kamal. They executed Western plots, which demanded that the Khilafah be destroyed and nothing of its reminders be left as it might act as catalyst for Islamic revival. They succeeded in abolishing the Khilafah (Caliphate) but the Iman in Muslims and their Deen was not abolished instead it triggered a wave of resentment as it was not Islamic to live without the Khilafah as it was a shield for the Ummah and so its affairs are supervised by it as dictated by the Islamic ideology. As narrated that Rasulullah ﷺ said: «إِنَّمَا الإِمَامُ جُنَّةٌ يُقَاتَلُ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ وَيُتَّقَى بِهِ» “Indeed, the Imam is a shield, behind whom the Muslims fight and protect themselves.” [Muslim]

The West through their evil capitalist ideology continue to date to wreak havoc throughout the Muslim lands and divided the once One United Ummah into state-lets each with a colonial agent ruler surrounded by a coterie of underlings whose Qibla is either London or Washington. These colonial agent rulers sanctioned by their masters have launched atrocities after atrocities. The atrocities include but not limited to moderation of Islam to conform to their western masters’ values, branding and imprisoning Muslims calling for Islamic revival as terrorists and extremists. Implementing all manner of policies that benchmark the Western influence across the state-lets in all sectors from Interest –Driven Commerce, Liberal-Driven Society, and Quasi-Driven Politics devoid of foreign policy and Privatization-Driven Industry etc.

The agent rulers went further in worshiping their masters to an extent of providing launching pads for Western military activities directed to their fellow brothers while playing blind when drawn to the attention of the damage they commit. Life has become extremely unbearable under the yoke of colonial agent rulers who are in crazy mode and desperate to salvage their positions in power by eliminating any threat to their status-quo. With calls for Islamic revival at their peak, agent rulers and their colonial masters have resulted in hoodwinking the masses by portraying Islam as a barbaric ideology, which cannot be an alternative to the invalid secular capitalist ideology. They have succeeded in fooling themselves and those around them as for the majority of the people including those from the West and entire Muslim world have not bought their sly and so the plots are unfolding before their eyes with Islam being embraced and the call for Revival peaking up daily all by the Grace and Mercy of Allah (swt):

كَتَبَ اللَّـهُ لَأَغْلِبَنَّ أَنَا وَرُسُلِي إِنَّ اللَّـهَ قَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ

Allah has decreed: ‘Verily! It is I and My Messenger who shall be victorious’. Verily, Allah is All-Powerful, All-Mighty.”

(Al-Mujadila: 21)

Indeed, for ninety-seven years, we have been mourning and languishing under the yoke of colonial capitalism; from Middle East, Africa, Asia, Latin America etc. people have adopted a painful life slogan that states ‘yesterday was better than today and tomorrow’ as mafia capitalists with their multinationals prey on them day in day out with inhumane policies meant to defraud them of their vast resources. As time ticks and the exposure of deliberate futile attempts by status-quo to salvage their collapsed evil secular capitalist ideology waiting for burial anytime soon. Our hearts are up beat with the new dawn, which by all signs is fast approaching. The new dawn under the leadership of Khilafah re-established on the Prophet ﷺ methodology is beyond doubts as prophesized by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in the famous hadith: «ثُمَّ تَكُونُ مُلْكًا جَبْرِيَّةً ، فَتَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ» “…there will be dictatorships that will last as long as Allah is willing.” [Ahmad]

In addition, Allah (swt) promised the victory:

وَعَدَ اللَّـهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَىٰ لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُم مِّن بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا وَمَن كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ

“Allah has promised such of you who believe and do good deeds that He will surely make them to succeed (the present rulers) in the earth even as He caused those before them to succeed (others); and He will surely establish for them their religion which He has approved for them, and will give in exchange safety after their fear.

(An-Nur: 55)

And He (swt) also says:

وَلَا تَهِنُوا وَلَا تَحْزَنُوا وَأَنتُمُ الْأَعْلَوْنَ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ

 “So do not become weak, nor be sad, and you will be superior (in victory) if you are indeed (true) believers.”

(Al-i-Imran: 139)

With the prophecy from Rasulullah ﷺ and promise from Allah (swt) the Muslim Ummah must not sit back and just wait for things to unfold, instead, we must remain steadfast and resilient in our call for Genuine Islamic Revival aimed at resuming the Islamic Way of Life via the re-establishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) since it is only through it that the Ummah’s dignity and honour shall be realized. The Khilafah will liberate not only Muslims but also non-Muslims and humanity in general from the machinations of the invalid colonial secular capitalist ideology and its stinking systems emanating from it including the mafia Democratic system of governance. Allah (swt) says:

وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ

“And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds”

(Al-Anbiya: 107)

It is time that you join if you have not the work of Genuine Liberation spearheaded by Hizb ut Tahrir; an Islamic political party that do not fear or mince its words against colonial agent rulers and their colonial masters when it comes to preaching good (khair) and forbidding the evil (munkar) with its eyes focused and aimed at re-establishing the Khilafah Rashidah based on the Prophet ﷺ methodology.

Oh Sincere Sons of the Muslim Ummah,

Who are currently in the Army barracks, your brothers and sisters in Kashmir, Palestine, Syria, Somalia etc are calling up on you to give Nusrah (military support) to Hizb ut Tahrir to establish the Khilafah which shall liberate them from their persecution and with it Unite the Ummah, its Armies and Lands and embark on Preaching the Islamic Da’wah globally. Do you not wish to be acknowledged as Saad ibn Muadh (ra) was when he passed away and Allah (swt)’s Throne shook and for whom the gates of heavens were opened and whose funeral was witnessed by angels who had never descended to the earth until that day and moved in frenzy in a bid to outstrip one another to partake in his funeral and to bear his bier in reverence and humility for him? Or you have chosen to be used as pawns in global proxy wars that its end result is shame on earth and Jahannam in the Hereafter? The dawn is here after 97 years still Allah (swt) has given you an opportunity to be written in History as Khalid bin Walid (ra) was. Unshackle yourselves from colonial agent rulers’ subservience and embrace the call of Allah (swt) and His Messenger ﷺ:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّـهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّـهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ

“O you who believe, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when He calls you to what will bring you to life.”

(An-Anfal: 24)
