The Governor of the Central Media Bank of Sudan, Mohamad Kheir Az-Zabeir, announced after his meeting with the Sudanese Council of Ministers on Thursday 04/102018 that there will be a bundle of economic policies in order to deal with the economic downfall in Sudan. He further announced,“The government will eliminate all kinds of government control over prices; rather, it will occur daily via economic experts, bank managers, and bankers”. He also confirmed that these procedures will definitely lead to a rise in foreign currencies against the Sudanese pound, and that he realizes that it will later fall down again… (Sudan Tribune).
Through this procedure, the government would have implemented the bill of general economic procedure of the IMF in relation to the currency inflation. In the first day of releasing the exchange rate of the Sudanese pound against the dollar, the mechanisms of the market makers (the expert committee) raised the rate from 29.5 to 47.5 pounds, against the dollar last Sunday 07/10/2018, so the dollar increased in the corresponding market from 47.5 to 49 pounds, and it is the dollar allowed for importing which represents the decision-maker in the costs of all products, and the main reason behind its continuous price hikes!
Probably this step, which has been labeled as “shocking” by the Prime Minister, follows the footsteps of the malicious capitalistic economy of Freedman and his crowd in order to achieve the ruling by fools. The Rasuul ﷺ sought refuge from the tyrannical rulers who follow Kufr politics; they do not observe toward poor and weak people any pact of kinship or covenant of protection. It was narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah that the Rasuul ﷺ said to Ka’ab ibn U’jra: «أَعَاذَكَ اللَّهُ مِنْ إِمَارَةِ السُّفَهَاءِ» قَالَ: وَمَا إِمَارَةُ السُّفَهَاءِ؟ قَالَ: «أُمَرَاءُ يَكُونُونَ بَعْدِي لا يَقْتَدُونَ بِهَدْيِي وَلا يَسْتَنُّونَ بِسُنَّتِي» “May Allah protect you from the ruling of the fools.” He asked: “What is the ruling of the fools?” He ﷺ said: “There will be leaders after me who do not follow my guidance nor do not follow my Sunnah” (Reported by Al-Hakim, Ibn Hiban, Ahmad, and others).
The government used to constantly deny and reject any insinuation of inflating the Sudanese pound in order to delude the people. Afterwards, the government confirmed that it didn’t have any relation to the currency value, which is a blatant lie and cheating against the people. Narrated by Ma’akal who said: The Rasuul ﷺ said: «مَا مِنْ وَالٍ يَلِي رَعِيَّةً مِنْ الْمُسْلِمِينَ فَيَمُوتُ وَهُوَ غَاشٌّ لَهُمْ إِلا حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ الْجَنَّة» “If any ruler having the authority to rule Muslim subjects dies while he is deceiving them, Allah will forbid Paradise for him” (Reported by Bukhari).
These procedures are a symptom of the market’s breakaway and the chaos of the price hikes which are inflicting massive harms to the interests of the people. This is because the government’s treasury is sitting hollow on its thrones, and at the same time it is fighting local production with Haram fees, and by that the government has euthanized the Sudanese pound; thus, conflicting with the government’s Shari’i responsibility to take care of the affairs of its people. The Rasuul ﷺ said: «الإِمَامُ رَاعٍ وَهُوَ مَسْئُولٌ عَنْ رَعِيَّتِهِ» “The ruler is a guardian and responsible for his subjects”. Hizb ut Tahrir in Wilayah Sudan has constantly confirmed that this government is not capable of running the country because it is not implementing the Sharia of Allah. If the Khilafah (Caliphate) was established, it would have completely relied on local production in order to achieve self-sufficiency and exportation, while minimizing imports as much as possible, and reviving the currency dealing with only gold and silver. But all this cannot by achieved except under the shade of a Khilafah State.
O Honorable People in Sudan:
The government is not only incapable of solving your problems, it is actually the one who is creating and escalating this crisis through its loyalty to the disbelieving West and its institutions, such as the IMF. So, strive for a real change, which is an obligation and a promise, by working with those who want to revive the Sharia of Lord of Both Worlds (swt) to life by establishing the second Khilafah Rashidah upon the method of the Prophet.
