Passiveness before Oppression Invites Affliction Upon All of Us

Without doubt, the need for change has intensified. An avalanche of hardships and afflictions has been unleashed upon the Muslim World. Regarding prosperity, in blind submission to the IMF, the current rulers have ensured that increased taxation, inflation, rises in utility and fuel prices and removal of subsidies have broken the backs of the people. […]

“Say I believe in Allah — and then be steadfast”

 «قُلْ آمَنْتُ بِاللهِ ثُمَّ اسْتَقِمْ» “Say I believe in Allah — and then be steadfast” Musa (as) – with Allah’s aid – headed to Madyan, and he asked his Lord to guide him to the straight path until he reaches his destination without becoming misguided or departs from it. Allah (swt) said: وَلَمَّا تَوَجَّه تِلْقَاءَ […]

Speaking the Truth in Front of Tyrants with Purity of Intention, Patience and Perseverance is an Obligation and a Matter of Life and Death

Salaam to the foresighted and wise ones; who show the Truth as Truth and follow it, and who show the falsehood as false and who refrain from it and protect others from it, who will rescue the Ummah of Muhammad from this darkness, and from the oppressors and tyrants, who prevent it from the path […]

The Just Ummah Must Be Willing to Sacrifice What They Love for the Cause of Allah (swt)

A Muslim will face many tests, difficulties, challenges, temptations and distractions in the path of carrying the Dawah to establish Allah (swt)’s System, the Khilafah (Caliphate), upon this earth. Only the one who truly yearns Jannah and the Pleasure of Allah (swt) more than anything in this world will be able to sacrifice whatever is […]

The Love for Allah, the Prophet ﷺ and His Deen should mean more than anything in this world

What has Islam taught us about love for Allah and His Messenger: قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ “Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” [3:31] The […]

Knowledge of Islamic Rules and Implementing them is the Lifeline of Every Muslim and all Humankind

Gaining the Knowledge of the daily Shariah rules necessary for life is an individual obligation (fard Ain) on every Muslim. This is because the Muslim is commanded to carry out his actions according to the Shariah rules, not according to interest and desire. وَمَا كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ وَلَا مُؤْمِنَةٍ إِذَا قَضَى اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَمْراً أَن يَكُونَ […]

With the Comprehensive Application of Islam, we can Bring Humanity Out of Darkness into Light

We recall the speech of Ja’far ibn Abi Talib to Negus, who said: “We were a people in a state of ignorance and immorality, worshipping idols and eating the flesh of dead animals, committing all sorts of abomination and shameful deeds, breaking the ties of kinship, treating guests badly, and the strong among us exploited […]

The Muslim: Allah’s Chosen Witness to Humankind

Allah (swt) says in Surah Al-Hajj, verse 78, وَجَاهِدُوا فِي اللَّهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِ هُوَ اجْتَبَاكُمْ وَمَا جَعَلَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ مِنْ حَرَجٍ مِّلَّةَ أَبِيكُمْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ هُوَ سَمَّاكُمُ الْمُسْلِمينَ مِن قَبْلُ وَفِي هَذَا لِيَكُونَ الرَّسُولُ شَهِيدًا عَلَيْكُمْ وَتَكُونُوا شُهَدَاء عَلَى النَّاسِ فَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتُوا الزَّكَاةَ وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِاللَّهِ هُوَ مَوْلَاكُمْ فَنِعْمَ الْمَوْلَى وَنِعْمَ النَّصِيرُ “And strive hard […]

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم From the book, Introduction to the Tafseer of the Quran, by the Ameer of Hizb ut Tahrir, the eminent jurist and statesman, Ata Bin Khalil Abu Al-Rashtah: يَسْأَلُونَكَ عَنْ الأَهِلَّةِ قُلْ هِيَ مَوَاقِيتُ لِلنَّاسِ وَالْحَجِّ وَلَيْسَ الْبِرُّ بِأَنْ تَأْتُوا الْبُيُوتَ مِنْ ظُهُورِهَا وَلَكِنَّ الْبِرَّ مَنْ اتَّقَى وَأْتُوا الْبُيُوتَ مِنْ أَبْوَابِهَا وَاتَّقُوا […]

The Islamic Thinking Method is the Path Out from Darkness into Light

The month of Ramadan is the month of contemplation, reflection, worship, submission and servitude, leading to freedom, superiority and victory. Victory of Allah (swt) belongs only to those who possess the true consciousness of servitude, who strictly submit to nothing else than the guidance of their Lord with sincerity, and who embrace nothing else as […]

Islam is Neither Flexible and Malleable nor Evolving and Shifting

The will and wisdom of Allah decreed that our master Muhammad ﷺ is the seal of the Prophets and Messengers, and his message is a universal message that is eternal for all humankind. Allah (swt) said: وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا كَافَّةً لِّلنَّاسِ بَشِيراً وَنَذِيراً “And We have not sent you except comprehensively to mankind as a […]

Islam Brings Mankind out of Darkness into the Light, and Capitalism brings them back to Darkness

Allah (swt) says in the noble Qur’an: اللَّهُ وَلِيُّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا يُخْرِجُهُم مِّنَ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّورِ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا أَوْلِيَاؤُهُمُ الطَّاغُوتُ يُخْرِجُونَهُم مِّنَ النُّورِ إِلَى الظُّلُمَاتِ أُولَٰئِكَ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ “Allah is the ally of those who believe. He brings them out from darknesses into the light. And those who disbelieve – their allies […]

Islam is a Spiritual and Political Doctrine. Its Solutions to Humanity are not Imaginary or Theoretical

The separation of politics from Deen was carried out by the Western colonizers after the destruction of the Khilafah (Caliphate) and ruling of the Islamic countries, and the imposition of its control over the region. They spread their doctrine, which separated the Deen from the state and politics, and focused their point of view of […]

Living in Darkness is an Inevitable Consequence of not fully Implementing Allah’s Law

Allah (swt) says:  أَوَمَنْ كَانَ مَيْتاً فَأَحْيَيْنَاهُ وَجَعَلْنَا لَهُ نُوراً يَمْشِي بِهِ فِي النَّاسِ كَمَنْ مَثَلُهُ فِي الظُّلُمَاتِ لَيْسَ بِخَارِجٍ مِنْهَا كَذَلِكَ زُيِّنَ لِلْكَافِرِينَ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ “And is one who was dead and We gave him life and made for him light by which to walk among the people like one who is in […]

Sincere Guardians for Islam

Since the destruction of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on 28 Rajab 1342 Hijri, corresponding to 3 March 1924 CE, Muslims have suffered great oppression at the hands of the current rulers. These rulers pay lip service to Islam, whilst ruling by man-made laws, even though Allah (swt) said, وَمَنْ لَمْ يَحْكُمْ بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمْ […]
