On the twenty-eighth of Rajab 1342 AH, corresponding to the third of March 1924 CE, the British-led colonial Kuffar and with the connivance of the Arabs and Turks traitors managed to destroy the Khilafah state. The Kaffir traitor and foster child of Kufr, Mustafa Kamal, announced while the Muslim Ummah was unaware the abolition of the system of Khilafah permanently; and the Muslims have suffered as a result countless calamities, the greatest of these calamities was the abandonment of Allah’s law from the rule on earth and was replaced by the Kufr system, imposed by the Kaffir West at the beginning on our country by force, and then created from the sons of Muslims guards and sponsors to protect and defend and do du’a for them and even fight those who call for the rule of Islam.
And the second of these calamities is that the colonial Kuffar settled in Muslim lands, and they plundered the wealth of the Muslims, and they tore up the Muslim countries, and set over each one of them an agent to take care of their interests, and exercise all types of tortures on the sons of Muslims and created a flag for every torn part instead of the one flag of Islam. A brother became a stranger among his brothers, and they erected borders and dams, and flags and slogans, and loyalties differed, after the Muslims were one Ummah to the exclusion of other people!
This was not enough for the Kuffar, but rather they added to the poisoned daggers which stabbed the body of the Muslim Ummah another dagger, they gave the Jews, who saw the opportunity after the fall of the Khilafah, a state in the land of Israa’ and Mi’raj, and they sheltered, protected and surrounded them with their agents who protect its borders, who showed them love and affection, they even led the Ummah in successive defeats and imaginary wars. As a result of their betrayal they made the Jewish entity, the most humiliated creation and cowardly army, an invincible army, what humiliation after this humiliation! Then, the calamities and tragedies followed on the Muslims, they became the place of conflict and its material between the countries of the colonial Kuffar, so only their blood would be shed and only their honour would be violated and only and their wealth would stolen. The Muslims in every part of their country would have another Palestine, with a bleeding wound not less than that of Palestine, in Kashmir, Burma, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Pattani (in modern day Thailand), Iraq, Chechnya, Crimea, Caucasus, East Turkestan, Sudan, Somalia and many other bleeding Muslim countries. The state of the Muslims after the fall of the Khilafah is best described by the eminent companion Hanthalah (ra) who wrote:
Baffled am I by those, longing for the destruction of the Khilafah
But if it were to diminish so would the goodness upon them, and they will find nothing but utter humiliation thereafter
This is your situation after the demise of the Khilafah, disgrace and humiliation, killing and displacement, wherever Muslims are they are humiliated and degraded, and the cheapest thing in the world today is the blood of Muslims and their honour. America now cannot find a place to test its weapons the Muslim countries. Muslim blood is spilled because they have no Junnah (shield), to defend them, as the Prophet ﷺ said: «الإمام جُنة يقاتل من ورائه ويُتقى به» “Verily the Imam is but a shield who is fought from behind and is protected by.”
This is your situation after the demise of the Khilafah, how was your situation when you had a Khilafah state?
You were the masters of the world, and the most glorified people of the whole earth, because you are the followers of Muhammad ﷺ, the seal of the Prophets and Messengers, and the descendants of the righteous Khalifahs, and the conquerors who conquered the earth, its Easts and Wests. Arabs and non- Arabs embraced their Deen, and they toppled the thrones of oppressors by their hands, following the orders of the Khalifah (successor of the Prophet ﷺ): (لا تخونوا ولا تَغُلُّوا، ولا تَغدِروا ولا تُمَثِّلوا، ولا تقتلوا طفلاً صغيرًا، ولا شيخًا كبيرًا، ولا امرأة، ولا تَعقِروا نخلاً ولا تحرقوه، ولا تقطعوا شجرة مُثمِرة، ولا تذبحوا شاةً ولا بقرة ولا بعيرًا إلا لمأكلة، وسوف تمرون بأقوام قد فرَّغوا أنفسَهم في الصوامع، فدَعُوهم وما فرَّغوا أنفسهم له) “Do not betray and do not exceed the limits, do not become treacherous, and do not mutilate dead bodies, do not kill a small child, nor an elderly, nor a woman, do not cut down or burn a palm trees, and do not cut a fruiting tree, do not slaughter a sheep, nor a cow, nor a camel, unless you need to eat, you will pass by people who dedicated themselves to monasteries, leave them to that which they dedicated themselves to.”
They spread good and justice in every place that Islam entered. You were masters of the world, and the most glorified people of the earth when you had a Khilafah in which the answer of its Khalifah of the Muslims, Haroun Ar-Rashid to the Roman Emperor when he broke his covenant with Muslims(من هارون أمير المؤمنين إلى نكفور كلب الروم، الجواب ما تراه دون ما تسمعه). “From Harun the Commander of the believers to Nikephoros the Romans’ dog, the answer is what you will see not what you hear”
You were the masters of the world, and the most glorified people of the earth, when you had a Khilafah in which the cry of one woman is able to mobilize the Khalifah of Muslims Al-Mu’tasim’s powerful army in her support. You were the masters of the world, and the most glorified people of the earth when you had a Khilafah and you had a Commander like Muhammad Al-Fatih (The Conqueror) who won the honour of praise of the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him and his family to the conquer Constantinople «نعم الأمير أميرها ونعم الجيش جيشها» “The best Ameer (Commander) is its commander and the best army is its army”
You were the masters of the world, and the most glorified people of the Earth when the pages of history were written by Khalifs who ruled you by Allah’s laws, and led you by the book of Allah in the conquests and the battlefields of jihad, they made you a history brightly filled with pages of achievements in various fields, in leadership and looking after your affairs, and in science and civilization, and the land of Islam became the land of leaders and scholars, the land of justice and goodness, blessed with the justice of Islam and mercy under the Khilafah. Muslims and non-Muslims at a time when Europe was lost in the Dark Ages, where the sons of the same religion killed each other, they found no escape and sanctuary to enjoy the security, safety, welfare and charity except in the land of the Islamic Khilafah, amongst Muslims and under the rule of Islam!
That is your past, O Muslims, it is a past not far from you, and Islam which was carried by your ancestors, which Allah made them victorious by it, is waiting for you to carry it truthfully. Allah has promised you victory if you answer His call, Allah (swt) says:
إِنَّا لَنَنصُرُ رُسُلَنَا وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَيَوْمَ يَقُومُ الْأَشْهَادُ
“Indeed, We will support Our messengers and those who believe during the life of this world and on the Day when the witnesses will stand.”
So rush to work with Hizb ut Tahrir to resume the Islamic way of life in the Khilafah state on the method of Prophethood, a state of truth that is guided by the truth by name and nature, where there is no sovereignty except for Allah’s law, and the authority in it is for the Muslims to pledge allegiance to the Khalifah by consent and choice not by oppression and imposition, led by the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger ﷺ upon the method of Prophethood.
هَـذَا بَيَانٌ لِّلنَّاسِ وَهُدًى وَمَوْعِظَةٌ لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ
“This [Qur’an] is a clear statement to [all] the people and a guidance and instruction for those conscious of Allah”
