The first Islamic State was established by the Prophet Muhammed ﷺ himself, in Madina Munawara in the 7th century. Based on monotheism it united people of different colours and creeds and eradicated status inequality. It eventually came to be embraced by many nations and peoples. At its height it stretched from Morocco and Spain in […]
Ulama of the Hanafi madhhab, like those of the other madhahib, emphasised the role and importance of the Khilafah throughout the ages. In many respects, they had more to say about issues of ruling and governance than other ulama since many khulafa – the Abbasids and Uthmanis in particular – adopted the Hanafi madhhab and […]
Setara Institute once again conducted a survey that highlights the system of Khilafah. The institution that campaigns for pluralism and human rights, on Tuesday (24/5) released a survey about the tolerance level of high school students in Jakarta and Bandung. The survey involved 760 high school students aged between 15-19 years in the two major […]
Allah Almighty says: وَأَنِ احْكُمْ بَيْنَهُمْ بِمَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ وَلَا تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ وَاحْذَرْهُمْ أَنْ يَفْتِنُوكَ عَنْ بَعْضِ مَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ إِلَيْكَ “And judge, [O Muhammad], between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations and beware of them, lest they tempt you away from some of what Allah has revealed to […]
The month of Rajab descends upon the Muslims for the ninety-fifth time in the absence of the Khilafah State (Caliphate), in the absence of the Imam, described by the Messenger of Allah’s ﷺ saying:
In the speech, delivered by his prime minister and his deputy for the Thirteenth Conference of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Istanbul, King Abdullah II said that the Ummah today faces challenges that threaten its Deen and fate.
What the Ummah has been afflicted with and what continues to be afflicted of calamities irrespective of the level of severity, does not count for anything before the abominable crime that befell the Muslims at the hand of the criminal of this age and agent of the English, Mustafa Kamal, on the day that he […]
The 3rd of March marks 92 years since the colossal tragedy that befell the Ummah of Muhammad ﷺ – the abolishment of the Khilafah, the Ruling System of Islam at the hands of Western colonial governments and their treacherous agent Mustafa Kemal. The heart wrenching consequences of that fateful day upon the Muslims and their […]
A ‘perfect storm’ is a term used to describe an event where a rare combination of circumstances result in an event of unusual magnitude. March 2016 may very well turn out to be a date many will look back to in the future as the starting point of something great.
The 3rd of March is a date that is etched into the history of the Muslim Ummah as one of its darkest days ever. It was on this date in the fateful year of 1924 CE that the last vestige of legitimate Islamic rule was ended. The office of Khilifah was abolished by the treacherous […]
Al-Quds Al-Arabi Newspaper published on its website on 01/01/2016 an article by Dr. Faisal al-Qassim entitled “The simple question to those dreaming of the return of the Khilafah” … and in a simple answer to his question, we say:
Muslims in the West face a number of challenges. Some of these are real, others are perceived to be real. Bringing up children and maintaining our identities is a real challenge. Holding onto Islamic values in an ideological society that works to undermine these values is another. Recently, Muslim communities have faced an onslaught, undermining Islamic […]
On a primary level, question of talab al-Nussrah (seizing power vis-à-vis those who possess the material capacities to do so) is not to be deliberated on the basis of whether or not we perceive it to be an “optimal” strategy or not. It is a question of whether or not this hukm-Shari’ is binding. More […]
Can we work towards the establishment of a Caliphate whilst being immersed in a state of ‘sin’? Muslims who advocate the resurrection of the Caliphate are often challenged on the grounds that Muslims cannot work for such whilst being in a state of deep-sin. To say the least, such a claim is marred by ambiguity […]
In a statement by Dr. Essam Ahmad Al-Bashir, President of the Islamic Fiqh Council, reported in “Al Mijhar As-Siyasi” Newspaper, Issue No. 1113 on Saturday 4th July, 2015, as saying, “The idea of the Islamic Khilafah State at the moment is impractical; it is not a priority and it is not an obligation on Muslims […]
The establishment of Khilafah is an obligation, rather it is great obligation as it established many obligations, upon Muslims. Allah سبحانه وتعالى has not left the method to establish an obligation for human beings to decide. The methodology for establishing Khilafah like any other obligation is also defined by Allah سبحانه وتعالى. The method to […]
The abolition of the Islamic Khilafah system in Turkey on the twenty-eighth of Rajab 1342 AH is a landmark event in the history of the Ummah. It draws one’s attention to two eras, before and after the destruction: the first era before the destruction was an era of blessings marked by unity of the countries […]
O Honorable Ummah, a painful memory is passing us during these days, which is the memorial of the destruction of the Khilafah at the hands of a murderer of the century, Mustafa Kemal, on 28 Rajab 1342 AH coinciding with March 3, 1924 CE. We remind the Ummah of this great loss and painful event […]
Isn’t it time for the people of power and protection to give the victory to the carriers of the Khilafah Banner?! On 28 Rajab 1342 AH corresponding to 3rd March 1924 CE the Kafir colonizers were able, using the traitors of the Arabs and the Turks, to demolish the State of the Muslim, the Khilafah. […]
On the morning of the 28th of Rajab 1342 AH, the Kuffar destroyed the Khilafah Islamiyah at the hand of the Jew Mustapha Kamal, the British agent and product, and he was the one who said in a decree regarding the destruction of the Khilafah: “At any price the threatened republic must be protected, and […]
“The Imams (of the four madhabs: Abu Hanifa, Malik, Shaf’i, Ahmad) – may Allah have mercy on them – all agreed that the Imamah (Khilafah) is an obligation, and that the Muslims must appoint an imam (Khalifah) who implements the rites of the Deen and gives the oppressed justice against the oppressors, and they agreed that it is not permitted for there be over the Muslims, at any one time, two imams, in agreement or discord…” (The Jurisprudence of the Four Madhhabs [al-Fiqh ‘ala al-Madhahib al-Arba’a], 5:416.)
On 8/2/2015 CE, the Nigerian Electoral Commission announced the postponement of the presidential and legislative elections which were scheduled to take place on 14th February 2015; they have been postponed to 28th March 2015 under the pretext of internal security concerns… Is this the case? Or is this delay is for international reasons? And if so, which countries are influencing this delay? And what is expected for this election?
I have noticed that the Hizb publications are almost devoid of talk about Nigeria’s issues although it is the largest Muslim country in terms of population in Africa, and overlooks the ocean, and an oil producing country, so why is there no attention paid to it? And excuse me if my right is to ask a question and not to comment… Jazak Allah Khair.
A key aide to the leader of Islamic State (Isis) has been killed in a US strike on a convoy near the Iraqi city of Mosul that destroyed 10 vehicles carrying a number of the group’s top militants.
Colonel Patrick Ryder, a spokesman at US Central Command, said on Saturday: “I can confirm that coalition aircraft did conduct a series of air strikes yesterday evening in Iraq against what was assessed to be a gathering of ISIS leaders near Mosul. We cannot confirm if the ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was among those present.”
As-Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakaatuhu
I pray that Allah grant you success and bless us with the victory by your hands our Ameer, soon Inshallah, this matter belongs to Allah Alone, and we bear witness you are the best successor to the best predecessors
In the book: Concepts of Hizb ut Tahrir on page 73 (English version) it mentions:
“Carrying the Islamic da’wah and the political struggle for its cause can be undertaken only in the society which the party has defined as its area for activity (majal).Hizb ut-Tahrir considers the society in all the Islamic lands to be one society because its entire cause lies in one case, Islam. However it takes the Arab lands that are a part of the Islamic Lands as a starting point. It considers the establishment of an Islamic state in the Arab countries as a nucleus for the Islamic state as a natural step.”
On 23 August 2014, Aljazeera website published an article in the Knowledge section by Professor Muhanna Al-Jubail titled: “Unity and Khilafah and Democracy“, the writer addressed through it what he called the conservatives among Muslim youth, who are wary of the acceptance of democracy or to exercise it in order to achieve the Islamic unity. This unity is undoubtedly obligatory in the definite texts of the Qur’an and the Sunnah.
Starting from 29 June 2014 after the announcement of so called “establishment of the Caliphate” by “The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant” organization (ISIL) the whole world witnessed an unprecedented interest of the international media in the event and in the topic of the Caliphate as such. The excitement did not pass the Russian media.
The big headlines appeared in the news of the Runet: “Russia is the main enemy of the new Caliphate”, “Caliphate 2.0” and so on. Virtually every publication, TV channel and news agency considered it their duty to speculate on the topic of the Muslim state.
There are some comments on some websites that state: “That Hizb ut Tahrir has defined the method of seeking the Nussrah (material support) to establish the Khilafah, while it abides to, and does not acknowledge any other Legislative (Shari’) method… although there is another method, which is “the method of the dominant Sultan”, i.e. the one who establishes the state by force and fighting… they also said that Hizb ut Tahrir objected Baghdadi’s declaration out of Hizbi prejudice, as the Hizb does not acknowledge the Khilafah as a legitimate one except if it established it…” Can you please provide a conclusive and sufficient answer for these statements? May Allah reward you.
The “Caliphate Fantasy” is the title of Khaled Diab’s contribution to the New York Times on the 2nd July, 2014. His opinion relates to the announcement of a Caliphate in large parts of Iraq by a ‘Jihadi’ group, and his thesis is that this new Caliphate is “ahistorical to say the least”.
After the announcement of Khilafah by ISIS in Iraq, Muslims around the world are in dilemma whether Khilafah state actually has been established or this announcement is just rhetoric. Muslims must know that any group which has to announce the Khilafah in a place is obligated to follow the Methodology of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم in it, and from it is that this group should have the obvious visible authority on the place, where it can maintain security internally and externally, and that this place should have what constitutes a state where the Khilafah is announced….This is what the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم performed when he established the Islamic State in Madina Al-Munawarra: the authority was with the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and the internal and external security was with Muslims and they had what constitutes a state in the surrounding area.
Any organization that seeks to announce the Khilafah in an area is obligated to follow the Methodology of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم in it, and from it is that this organization should have the obvious visible authority on the place, where it can maintain security internally and externally, and that this area should have the components of a state in the area where the Khilafah is announced….This is what the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم performed when he established the Islamic State in Madina Al-Munawarra: the authority was with the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and the internal and external security was with the authority of Islam and it had the components of a state in the surrounding area.
