In response to the Rajab campaign demanding the re-establishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood, the rulers of Pakistan mobilized their thugs against the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir. In Lahore, they focused their frustration on Arshad Jamal, an information technology professional and father of three, who was previously arrested in December 2014, remaining in prison for well over two years. Arshad was placed under surveillance for a few days by the thugs of the regime, before they forcibly entered his home on 18 April, in blatant disregard of the honor of the womenfolk and the well-being of his terrified children. Even the good neighbors that gathered outside Arshad’s home to denounce the regime’s vile treatment were threatened with force.
Thus, in blind submission to Trump, Pakistan’s rulers continue to use force against those who call for the resumption of Islam as a way of life, heedless of the warning of RasulAllah ﷺ that, «وَمَنْ عَادَى أَوْلِيَاءَ اللَّهِ فَقَدْ بَارَزَ اللَّهَ بِالْمُحَارَبَةِ» “Whosoever shows hostility to the Awliya (ones close to Allah) of Allah will vie with Allah in belligerency” [Hakim narrated as Sahih from Mu’aadh bin Jabal]. They oppress good Muslims who turn to Dua as a protection, heedless of the warning of RasulAllah ﷺ to, «اتَّقِ دَعْوَةَ الْمَظْلُومِ فَإِنَّهَا لَيْسَ بَيْنَهَا وَبَيْنَ اللَّهِ حِجَابٌ» “Fear the Dua of the oppressed, for there is not a veil between it and Allah (swt)” [Bukhari]. And they terrify the families and neighbors of the brave advocate of the Khilafah, heedless of the warning of RasulAllah ﷺ that «مَنْ رَوَّعَ مُؤْمِنًا لَمْ يُؤَمِّنِ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ رَوْعَتَهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ» “Whosoever terrifies a believer will not be secure from being terrified on the Day of Resurrection.” (Kanz al-Ummal).
Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Pakistan assures the heedless, sinful rulers that their years of persecution of the advocates of the Khilafah, only harms themselves. Such persecution confirms to the Muslims that the rulers resort to force as they do not have Truth as a support. Such persecution confirms to the Muslims that the advocates of Khilafah bear it patiently because of their commitment to Allah (swt) and His Messenger ﷺ and are thus deserving of leadership. And above all else, through such oppression, the rulers guarantee their own seizure by Allah (swt) for He (swt) said,
وَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ اللَّهَ غَافِلًا عَمَّا يَعْمَلُ الظَّالِمُونَ ۚ إِنَّمَا يُؤَخِّرُهُمْ لِيَوْمٍ تَشْخَصُ فِيهِ الْأَبْصَارُ
“And never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He only delays them for a Day when eyes will stare [in horror].”
(Surah Ibrahim 14:42)
Soon, O heedless rulers of Pakistan, inshaaAllah you will be held accountable in the courts of the Khilafah. These courts are unlike the false courts of today, for their judgment will be based on the Deen of Allah (swt) and will never let a criminal escape his fate, under any circumstances. So take heed and count the limited time you have left, for your mounting oppression is glaring evidence of the weakness of your standing and the imminence of your collapse…
