Eid Message from Sheikh Ata Bin Khalil Abu Rashtah, Ameer of Hizb ut-Tahrir

The Message of the Eminent Sheikh Ata Bin Khalil Abu Rashtah to the Visitors of his Pages in Occasion of the Arrival of the Blessed Eid al-Fitr of the Year 1437 AH corresponding to 2016 CE

All praise and thanks are to Allah, and prayers and greetings on Allah’s Messenger and on his family and companions:

To the Muslim Ummah, who was honoured by Allah who said,

كُنْتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ

“You are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma’ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden), and you believe in Allah”

(Aali-Imran: 110)

To the pure and pious dawah carriers, and we do not commend anyone to Allah, those who utter the best words and perform the righteous work, where Allah praises those who possess those qualities:

وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ قَوْلًا مِمَّنْ دَعَا إِلَى اللَّهِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا وَقَالَ إِنَّنِي مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِين

“And who is better in speech than he who [says: “My Lord is Allah),” and then stands straight (acts upon His Order), and] invites (men) to Allah’s (Islamic Monotheism), and does righteous deeds, and says, “I am one of the Muslims””

(Fussilat: 33)

To the honourable visitors of the webpage, coming to it with truth and sincerity and to the ones seeking the good that it has, may Allah reward them with the best…

To all these, I congratulate them for Eid al-Fitr and I ask Allah سبحانه وتعالى to accept their fasting and to make them amongst the redeemed this Holy Month. I also ask the Almighty that this Eid might be a prelude for the blessings and prosperity for the Muslims so that we may enjoy the following Eid in the shade of the Rayah of the Khilafah Rashidah, the flag of La Illaha Illah Allah Muhammadan Rasul Allah, and indeed that is not difficult for Allah…

In the end I bid you salaam and pray for your well-being, may Allah accept your deeds and may Allah safeguard you from harm and protect you from all evil.

فَاللَّهُ خَيْرٌ حَافِظًا وَهُوَ أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ

“But Allah is the Best to guard, and He is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy”

(Yousef: 64)
