After the first anniversary of the Arab spring in January 2012 much has changed in the Muslim world and its shocks continue to reverberate across the world. Whilst the uprisings in the Muslim world continue perceptions of the Muslim world both inside and outside the region continue to fluctuate.

The failure of most of the secular parties in the elections that have taken place in the Muslim lands have forced many in the West to revaluate their positions. The initial Islamic statements by the Islamic parties that won have now given way to the reality of ruling and the debate surrounding Islam and secularism continues to get louder as the call from the region for Islam gets louder. Attempts by the West to hijack the uprisings continue and this trend has continues in Syria as the West works to ensure any change remains cosmetic.

Although science is common and not particular to a view of life, its products and its applications, are to be used according to the Ahkam Shari’ah. That which is allowed from Shari’ah can be taken and used, and that which is prohibited is to be left out. This is the way that we should view and deal with all things that are the products of science.

BOOK: “The Responsibility of the Ruler and the Ruled”

Download the book from here.

The women members’ of Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Pakistan have written this book which seeks to clarify the relationship between the Ruler and Ruled and its importance in maintaining a strong Khilafah, which is to come soon inshaAllah. It covers the basic concept of what a Muslim is responsible for and then more specifically the Ruler’s responsibility to his people and the people’s responsibility to the Ruler. When the Khilafah returns, the Ummah must cling to this understanding with its teeth, to prevent a recurrence of all the suffering it faced due to the absence of Islam.

BOOK: The Essential Elements of the Islamic Nafsiyyah

The personality (shakhsiyyah) of every human being is composed of the mentality (‘aqliyyah) and disposition (nafsiyyah). His physical characteristics and all other aspects have no bearing on his personality – these are only superficialities. It would be pointless for anyone to think that such aspects have any relevance or bearing upon the composition of the human personality.

Strategic Estimate is’s annual assessment of the global balance of power. We concluded in our previous assessment the US remained the world’s superpower, however it had been over-stretched in both the wars it was engaged in after the events of 9/11, this led to a number of nations taking a more confident and in some cases a much more confrontational approach to the US in the different regions of the world.

This manifesto demonstrates how Islamic economic, political and social models can be applied to the full range of problems faced by a modern State. These Islamic solutions deliver real progress on a scale and time frame that cannot be matched by Capitalist models, the very models which Islamic parties across the Middle East have been so quick to adopt in power.

This is an account of my time in Mubaraks Prison system in Egypt, between 2002 and 2006.

There are many stories that have been left untold, but what follows are the main events of my incarceration, as well as a few stories to give a glimpse of what prison life in Mubarak’s Egypt was like. In a few places I have changed names of people, as it may not be desirable or even safe for their true identity to be known.

Gold Standard: The future for a stable global currency

With the European sovereign debt crisis threatening to dissolve the Eurozone and the US with record budget and trade deficits the world is facing a monetary crisis.

Central to the sovereign debt, housing and financial derivatives bubbles has been the provision of cheap and abundant credit. Money that has been simply manufactured from the keyboards or printing presses of Central bankers. As long as the financial system allows the effective counterfeiting of paper currency to meet ever increasing central spending – inflation and instability will ensue.

Strategic Estimate is’s annual assessment on the global trends, the emerging trends and the developments that have taken shape during the year between the world’s powers.

2011 will remain long in the memory when the history books are finally written. What has now come to be known as the Arab spring began with a single man in the markets of Tunisia, which then spread to thousands on the streets in Cairo and evolved to hundreds of thousands demanding political change in the Muslim world. The self immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi in Tunisia created a sweeping wave, which crossed the artificial borders in the Muslim world encompassing Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Bahrain until it engulfed most of the Muslim world. 2011’s Strategic Estimate,’s annual assessment of the global balance of power is dominated by the Arab spring.

BOOK: Democracy is a system of Kufr. It is forbidden to adopt, implement or call for it.

A debate is currently taking place in the Muslim world on whether democracy is against Islam or not. With Islamic parties taking power in Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt this debate has intensified as these parties attempt to justify their actions. In addition to this some people are actively promoting Erdogan’s secular-democratic Turkish regime as a role model for governments post Arab spring.

Much of the debate on Islam and democracy is based on pragmatic thinking rather than the Islamic way of thinking. The correct approach to the question of whether democracy contradicts Islam or not is to study the reality of democracy in depth and then study the Islamic texts of Qur’an and Sunnah for an answer.

For the Muslim World, 2011 will remain long in the memory when the history books are finally written. What began with a single man in the markets of Tunisia spread to thousands on the streets in Cairo and evolved to hundreds of thousands demanding political change for the entire region. The self immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi in Tunisia created a sweeping wave, which crossed the artificial border to Egypt, then to Libya, Yemen and Bahrain until it engulfed most of the Muslim world. The Arab spring has seen many brave the streets to protest and change the status quo which has dominated the political, economic and social landscape for so long. The reaction of the Muslim rulers was as predictable as it was brutal with violent clampdowns leaving thousands dead and many more injured.

The world is at a cross road. Our time is difficult. The present is unstable. But Insha‘Allah the future is bright. The signs of ‘American century’ coming to an end are very clear. Anyone with profound knowledge can see this very happening. America is becoming weak. She is weary. She is fragile. Her global reach has been dented. Her global ambition is even challenged by countries like North Korea. She does not solely control the world any more. She is stabbed by the apparent rise of Russia and China. But there is an even bigger challenge she is facing; saving her status quo in remaining in the reign of world‘s only global state.

BOOK: The role of Muslim Women in re-establishing the Khilafah

It is not a hidden fact that today all man made systems, based on rebellion against Allah, have failed to solve the problems of humanity. After the fall of socialism, the whole world is dominated by a secular, democratic, capitalist system and the world is in great misery under the brutal grip of this invalid, Western system.

BOOK: Essays on 21st Century Western Imperialism and the Return of the Caliphate

Since September 11 2001, the West has intensified its confrontation with Islam. This struggle is not a clash of civilisations as misunderstood by some; rather it is a war of civilisations and the Muslim world is the foremost of battlegrounds. Western powers are waging this brutal war with all of their might and wealth to ensure the survival of their political, economic, cultural and military domination of the Muslim world. Against this backdrop, I have authored a plethora of articles about several subjects that both Muslims and non-Muslims will find intriguing and intellectually stimulating.

The USA began the 21st century as the world’s unrivalled superpower. Globally the USA touched everyone in different ways, through Hollywood, US technology – Microsoft, fast food – MacDonald’s, fizzy drinks – Coca Cola, news media – CNN, print media – the New York Times, International Herald Tribune, internet – Google, Yahoo, and finance – Wall Street. For over a century the United States of America has dominated politics, economics, foreign policy and globalisation.

BOOK: Democracy in Crisis

What started as an experiment in Athens over two thousand years ago eventually pervaded every continent and every land. Democracy, Democracy, Democracy is the repeated call that bellows from the four corners of the globe. It is the established order in a chaotic and unstable world, where every critic of democracy is viewed with heretical suspicion. For every political problem, we are told, lies a democratic solution. For every civilization, for every country for every tribe, for every time – goes the mantra – democracy is the claimed answer to all our ills. In the poetic words of a RAWA (Revolutionary Association of the Women in Afghanistan) activist, democracy will cure all wounds and bring a dawn of freedom.

REPORT: Afghanistan – The West’s unwinnable war

A major sign of incompetence is a person who does the same thing over and over again while each time expecting different results. President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Gordon Brown seem to be trapped in such an illusion. In 2001, when Western leaders ordered the invasion of Afghanistan, they set out their objectives for its occupation. They talked of bringing peace to the region, establishing a government which is accountable, promoting economic and industrial development, ending opium trade and securing the rights of the Afghan people.

Strategic Estimate 2010

This is an assessment on the trends for 2010 and short to medium term – i.e. the next decade. This is based upon current trends, the plans of some of the world’s powers and the likely outcome of such manoeuvres. Like any assessment, they are merely estimates and forecasts; as global politics is always in a state of flux such an assessment will never remain static nothing can happen without the permission of Allah سبحانه وتعالى

BOOK: The Environmental Problem – Its Causes & Islam’s Solution

In relation to the ongoing debate on the climate and the increasing focus on the condition of the environment, Hizb ut-Tahrir in Denmark has issued a booklet titled “The Environmental Problem – Its Causes & Islam’s Solution”.

The booklet points out the cultural causes behind the incompetence of the Western capitalist states in solving the environmental problem. It highlights the major industrial countries’ erroneous diagnosis and treatment of the environmental problem, and it clarifies that the solutions of the Western great powers practically serve the interests of their large industries at the expense of the environment. Furthermore, the booklet explains the Islamic view on the environment, as well as the way in which the institutions of the coming Islamic Khilafah-state will deal with the environmental problem.

BOOK: Constructing the Khilafah’s Foreign Policy

A nation’s foreign policy is one of the most significant factors that determine a nation’s shape and architecture. A nation with a foreign policy whose objective is to trade, only results in an economy that is consumer oriented. As the country itself does not have a military capability, it leaves the economy open to interference by military powers. Countries such as Norway, Sweden, Morocco and the UAE have such a foreign policy. Given most wars are fought over resources and trade, such a policy will never lead to political or economic independence for a nation. President Woodrow Wilson once said: “Is there any man, is there any woman, let me say any child here that does not know that the seed of war in the modern world is industrial and commercial rivalry?”

Iran made history in February 2009 when it launched into orbit the Muslim world’s first domestically constructed satellite. What made this development even more stunning is the fact that under sanctions and with a belligerent US continually spreading propaganda against Iran, it has managed to indigenously develop a space based programme.

Iran has managed to develop advanced ballistic missiles and now satellites and is the only Muslim country to have launched these with little external help.

BOOK: The Sixty Sultaniyya – A collection of narrations relating to Ruling

Over the centuries there have been many collections of hadith compiled with the intention of reminding the Muslims the ahkam of Allah سبحانه وتعالى so as to apply them in their lives. The most famous, that many have read and benefitted from, is the Forty Hadith compiled by Imam Nawawi.

But today the most neglected of the commands of Allah سبحانه وتعالى is the command to rule by what Allah has revealed to His Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم.

BOOK: The Institutions of State in the Khilafah

In this book we wish to present a clear understanding of the practical implementation of the ruling and administrative organisations of the Khilafah state. More importantly, through this clarity we hope to uplift the hearts of the Muslims, so that they can visualise what the Khilafah state will be and strive towards it.

Our motivation in writing this book is the fact that the present ruling systems in the world are not consistent with the ruling system of Islam in terms of their structures and their bases. It is clear to all Muslims that these ruling systems are not derived from the book of Allah, the Sunnah of His Messenger and the other sources of Islamic law that are referred to by them. There is no disagreement amongst Muslims that these systems contradict the system of Islam.
