Q&A: The Decisive Rule of the Prisoners of War in the Qur’an is Al-Mann or Fida’

Question: Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah In our books we find the narration of Saad bin Moaz’s verdict on the Jews of Bani Qurayza; to kill their men and confiscate their money and take their women as captives, although the decisive rule on the prisoners of war in the Qur’an is either Mann (kindness) or Fida […]

Pakistan is in Need of Strong Military Industrial Development, Including Space Technology, to End Dependence on the Colonialists

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) on 17 September 2019 thanked Indians in the country and abroad for the support it received after the space agency lost contact with the lander of the second lunar mission Chandrayaan-2, minutes before touchdown on the lunar surface on 7 September. As for Pakistan, the failure of Indian space […]

The Jewish Entity Named “Israel” is a Usurping Entity in the Islamic Land. Recognizing Usurping Entities, Normalization with them or Making Agreements with them is Haraam (Forbidden)

The Jewish entity from the Shariah perspective is unique case in international relations. Though, it is true that the Jewish entity is similar to other Kafir colonialist nations, such as America, Russia, Britain, France, China and India, in terms that they are all warring disbelievers who occupy Islamic lands, commit crimes against Muslims and their […]

How the Khilafah will Create a Military Superpower that fights for the Cause of Islam

Since the destruction of the Khilafah in 1924, the security within the Muslim world became absent, making Muslim countries exposed to invasion by global and regional powers, externally sponsored inter-Muslim fighting and drone bombing, making Muslim blood cheap. Moreover, the existence of foreign security agencies within the Muslim lands and the use of armed forces […]

97 Years of Absent Honor and Lost Dignity!

97 years of disgrace, weakness, and the plotting of the nations against us; 97 years our awe has been ripped from the chests of our enemies as per what the Messenger ﷺ said: «وَلَيَنْزِعَنَّ اللهُ مِنْ صُدُورِ عَدُوِّكُمْ المَهَابَةَ مِنكُمْ» “Allah will take fear of you from the breasts of your enemy”. 97 years have […]

Q&A: The Intention of a Warring Belligerent to Reside in the Islamic State

Question: Bismillah Ar-Rahman Ar-Raheem, Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatu Allah wa Barakatuh, our Esteemed Sheikh, I kindly ask from you to clarify this matter, may Allah reward you greatly. It has been mentioned in the book of Nizam Al Iqtisadi (The Economic System) [English version page 339-340/ Arabic p. 302]: “Giving the belligerent protection would also […]

A Matter of Time not Capability

On September 26, 2014: Pakistan conducted a successful test fire of Short Range Surface to Surface Missile ‘Hatf IX’ (NASR). The test fire was conducted with successive launches of 4 x Missiles from a state of the art Multi Tube Launcher with Salvo Mode. NASR, with a range of 60 km and in-flight manoeuvre capability is a quick response system, with shoot and scoot attributes. It contributes to the full spectrum deterrence against the prevailing threat spectrum.

This is latest addition to the military assortment of weapons that Pakistan Forces boast. Pakistan’s military capability can be considered quite considerable when compared with other Muslim countries, in fact, even when compared with some non-muslim states too.

The Undermining of US Military Superiority

When the US invaded Afghanistan over a decade ago the Taliban controlled more territory than any other tribal group or faction. As the US begins its drawdown in 2014 the Taliban still control more territory than the rest. Hamid Karzai, barely has any authority beyond his compound, which itself is guarded by US marines. Whilst Afghanistan has historically been the graveyard of empires, the US possessing the most technologically advanced military in history has failed to defeat the Taliban. Peace talks with the Taliban are evidence of the fact that the US has failed to defeat them. The US is now amongst a long list of empires whose military superiority has been undermined by asymmetric warfare.

The Sacrifices of the Noble Scholars of India

In the year 1857, one of the most important uprisings in world history took place. This is classified as one of the most important because it was against the British and in their biggest and most important colony – India. If successful, it could have emboldened colonised people everywhere and inspired them to revolt against the then burgeoning and colossal British Empire.

The Betrayal of Islam and Muslims by the Armies

At a time when the Islamic Ummah is reviving from its decline and is demanding an end of Western domination, the Muslim armies are defending the current illegal regimes that were imposed by the Kufr West upon the Islamic Ummah. Instead of standing with the Ummah and its demand for liberation from Western domination through ridding it of these regimes, replacing them with all that Allah سبحانه وتعالى favored the people with, the Deen of Islam and its rule; these armies began to defend these regimes, even if it required them to commit massacres against the Muslim people, who rose up against the treacherous rulers, as is seen in Egypt. Regrettably, the armies seem to stand on the side of Falsehood against the Haq and the Ummah.

Air Force of the Uthmani Khilafah

Just six years after the Wright Brother’s first successful powered flight in Ohio, the Islamic State (Uthmani Khilafah) became one of the first nations in the world to start a military aviation program. Impressive as it may seem that Muslims quickly adopted this technology, the precedence to acquire new techniques and technologies for the protection of the Islamic State and its expansion was shown by the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم himself.

The Khilafah will Secure People of the World from Nuclear Destruction

Hizb ut-Tahrir Wilayah Pakistan has issued a Publicized Policy Position (PPP) regarding the subject of nuclear weapons, their proliferation and global disarmament.

Weapons technology has reached the stage where there are weapons of such power that do not merely subdue the army of a nation, but are capable of destroying the nation itself. They are conceived as Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) capable of destroying cities and countries and poisoning the earth with radiation, chemicals or micro-organisms for decades. They are of such capability that they are conceived of complete destruction of both warring nations, Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD). They not only exist in our day, they are possessed by nations who care not for the peoples of the world but seek only to ensure their control of the world’s resources. It is this scenario that faces the Khilafah upon its establishment, because Pakistan which can be the nucleus of the Khilafah, or part of it, possesses nuclear weapons. Thus the Khilafah’s position regarding nuclear weaponry extends way beyond the narrow considerations of a hostile Hindu state as a neighbor. Its vision extends to the broad horizon of being the role model and leading state for all of humankind.

Policy Regarding Indian Aggression

Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Pakistan has issued the following Publicized Policy Position (PPP) over the aggression by the Hindu state, brought to sharp focus in the recent tensions over the Line of Control. It is being circulated amongst the general masses, influential, media circles, legal fraternity, political and intellectual medium. It is accompanied by a call for the Nussrah (Material Support) from the people of power to Hizb ut Tahrir for the establishment of the Khilafah, so that the practical looking after the affairs of Muslims can begin with immediate effect.

BOOK: Al-Jihad wa’l Qital fi as-Siyasa ash-Shar’iyya CONTENTS PAGE

Download the contents from here.

This is a draft translation of the contents page from the book ‘Al-Jihad wa’l Qital fi as-Siyasa ash-Shar’iyya’. This three volume book is the work of Sheikh Dr. Muhammad Khayr Haykal which was his PhD thesis from the University of Damascus, Syria.

This book covers many issues related to Jihad and fighting, but its primary focus is the Jihad and fighting that will be performed by a future Khilafah.

We intend to translate and publish selected sections of this book in the future insha’Allah.

Air Force of the Khilafah

In the modern age, any nation that wants to ensure its borders are impenetrable, needs  a strong and technologically advanced air force. An air force is part of the national armed forces which conducts aerial warfare. An nation’s air force also provides close air support (CAS) to its armed forces and allies.

Islamic Ruling on Military Alliances

Today, we find Muslim countries making military alliances with the kuffar and fighting alongside them. Turkey is a member of NATO and has sent troops to Afghanistan under the UN International Security Assistance Force. Pakistan has entered a military alliance with America to fight Muslims in the tribal areas and support the Afghan war. The Islamic ruling on military alliances and their permissibility is taken from the book Shakhsiya Islamiyya (Islamic Personality) Volume 2 by Sheikh Taquideen an-Nabhani.

What is Jihad?

Never has there been a word more misrepresented in the media than Jihad.
Humans have been fighting and killing each other for millennia, developing ever more effective ways and enhancing technology to facilitate this killing. People fight to defend themselves, or to attack others. Wars are fought for land, tribe, nation, legacy, fortune, religion , independence, or resources like water and oil.

The Khilafah has a very comprehensive and highly responsible nuclear doctrine

Although regarding the use of Nuclear weapons the general rule in Islam does not allow their use as these weapons indiscriminately kill innocent civilians in addition to the destruction of military installations; however, there are two exceptions to this general rule where the use of nuclear weapons is allowed.

Firstly, Islam allows a tit for tat response; therefore the Khilafah reserves the right to respond in case nuclear weapons were used against her.

And secondly, Islam allows pre-emptive strikes in the presence of strong evidences of an impending nuclear attack by the adversary.
