The Karbala Tragedy is a Solemn Reminder that Ruling Without Legal Bay’ah is Unacceptable in Any Era

Imam Hussain (ra) willingly embraced martyrdom to preserve Islamic ruling, whilst challenging the usurper of power, Yazeed, who sought to establish dynastic rule. The Karbala tragedy is a solemn reminder of the duty to firmly account by Islam in matters of ruling. RasulAllah ﷺ said,«وَاللَّه لَتَأْمُرُنَّ بالْمعْرُوفِ، وَلَتَنْهوُنَّ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ، ولَتَأْخُذُنَّ عَلَى يَدِ الظَّالِمِ، ولَتَأْطِرُنَّهُ […]

Love the Ruling by all that Allah (swt) has Revealed and Hate the Ruling by Kufr

It has been narrated on the authority of ‘Auf b. Malik that the Messenger of Allah (saw) said, «خِيَارُ أَئِمَّتِكُمُ الَّذِينَ تُحِبُّونَهُمْ وَيُحِبُّونَكُمْ وَيُصَلُّونَ عَلَيْكُمْ وَتُصَلُّونَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَشِرَارُ أَئِمَّتِكُمُ الَّذِينَ تُبْغِضُونَهُمْ وَيُبْغِضُونَكُمْ وَتَلْعَنُونَهُمْ وَيَلْعَنُونَكُمْ» “The best of your rulers are those whom you love and who love you, who invoke God’s blessings upon you and […]

Allah (swt) says in Surat Al-Mu’minun Verse 71, وَلَوْ اتَّبَعَ الْحَقُّ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ لَفَسَدَتْ السَّمَوَاتُ وَالأَرْضُ وَمَنْ فِيهِنَّ بَلْ أَتَيْنَاهُمْ بِذِكْرِهِمْ فَهُمْ عَنْ ذِكْرِهِمْ مُعْرِضُونَ “But if the Truth had followed their inclinations, the heavens and the earth and whoever is in them would have been ruined. Rather, We have brought them their message, but they, […]

3rd March is the Day Our Shield, the Khilafah fell. Restore it so Our Armed Forces can Finally Liberate Occupied Kashmir and Masjid al-Aqsa

RasulAllah ﷺ described the Imam of the Muslims (Khaleefah) as a shield. «إِنَّمَا الْإِمَامُ جُنَّةٌ يُقَاتَلُ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ وَيُتَّقَى بِهِ» “Indeed, the Khaleefah is a shield, from behind whom you fight and by whom you are protected.” (Muslim) During the era of the Khilafah, if enemies harmed the Muslims or occupied lands, the Khilafah’s armed […]

Question:                                                                  Assalamu Alaikum Wa Ramatullah Wa Barakaatuhu, How are you our Sheikh? I have a question regarding an adoption by the Hizb.

Q&A: The Condition of Al-‘Adl (Being Just) in the Appointment of the Khaleefah

Question: Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh One of the conditions of the Khalifah is that he must be ‘adl (just).

We Lost Our Khilafah to Nationalism, and We Must Reject it to Get the Khilafah Back

On 3rd March 1923 CE, The Economist Magazine in London wrote about British concerns during the negotiations prior to the signing of the Treaty of Lausanne later that year. “If (Mustafa) Kemal’s Government falls, we may be confronted with a Turkey ambitious to lead a Muslim counter-offensive against the West, with the object of bringing […]

Lessons from the Weaknesses in Ruling during the Previous Era of the Khilafah

It is undoubted that the Islamic Khilafah State was a magnificent, stable and effective system of ruling. Although the initial Muslims had emerged victorious over the two major powers, Rome and Persia, they never turned to these great empires for guidance regarding their own civilization, method of ruling and state institutions. Nor did they need […]
