In the latest crackdown on the ideas promoted by the members of Hizb ut Tahrir calling for the re-establishment of the Islamic society through the establishment of the Khilafah Rashidah upon the method of the Prophethood, Pakistan’s Security officials arrested two devoted Muslim women, Sister Dr. Roshan and SisterRomana Hussein, holding them prisoners in accordance to the dictates of their Western masters.
Against this vile and violent backdrop of having fellow Muslim men arrest two sincere advocates of the Khilafah and the full implementation of Islam by calling for Muslims to accept these ideas and join the ranks of Hizb ut Tahrir – forgetting the fact that these Pakistani security apparatus are in direct collaboration with the regime in attacking their own sisters in Islam! Following the dictates precisely lest their superiors be disappointed yet forgetting the Master of masters will severely account those attack and oppress their Muslim brother and sister…even further they are supposed to fully resist these orders and protect and liberate Sister Romana Hussein and Sister Dr Roshan and her husband. How lowly are these officers for accepting to be humiliated to be the men of men over these two female members of Hizb ut Tahrir and that these two members are as strong as mountains in their steadfastness to the Haqq and firm belief that the Promise of Allah to establish Islam as the hukm of the Muslim Ummah is near.
On the other hand, this open vulgarity and disregard of the Muslim honor code and that limits of attacking women are no longer sacred or taboo by the Pakistani government shows the fears and concerns of the Pakistan regime and their Western counterparts. The work of Hizb ut Tahrir is clear to all that this is not only restricted to men but also women who are strong in their dawah work, working willfully with the Ummah calling firmly to the concepts of Islam and their implementation, promoting the ideas both openly and privately, urging the second half of society to rise up to their duty in this crown of all obligations and thus raising their children to love Islam and seek towards its whole implementation.
Women who do not carry any tangible object except the knowledge of Islam and the ideas of Hizb ut Tahrir strike fear and desperation in the Pakistani regime! Ideas are far more powerful than the guns and their firepower because they have the catalyst for real change in individuals spreading to society differentiating the lethargic persons from the energetic ones, the blind followers from the aware observers. It is no longer the men who call for these ideas but it is the wives, mothers, and daughters of the Ummah who call for the Muslim armies to rise up their sworn duty; and their brothers, sons, and husbands to be advocates of Islam. Indeed it is tragic that the Pakistan government resorts to such oppressive unheard measures yet it in every storm there are clouds of hope that the victory is near and the message that Sisters Romana and Sister Dr Roshan carry definitely does not fall on deaf ears for their message sends shivers down the regime’s bodies making them lose sleep. These strong sisters in Pakistan and other diligent sisters in other countries give us great inspiration to keep moving even stronger day and night in spreading the word of Haqq, to be the second Ansar to establish the second Madinah State fulfilling the promise of Allah sooner than later. فَذَلِكُمُ اللّهُ رَبُّكُمُ الْحَقُّ فَمَاذَا بَعْدَ الْحَقِّ إِلاَّ الضَّلاَلُ فَأَنَّى تُصْرَفُونَ“For that is Allah, your Lord, the Truth. And what can be beyond truth except error? So how are you averted?” [Yunus: 32] وَقُل رَّبِّ أَدْخِلْنِي مُدْخَلَ صِدْقٍ وَأَخْرِجْنِي مُخْرَجَ صِدْقٍ وَاجْعَل لِّي مِن لَّدُنكَ سُلْطَانًا نَّصِيرًا “And say, “My Lord, cause me to enter a sound entrance and to exit a sound exit and grant me from Yourself a supporting authority.”” [Al-Israa: 80]
Our sisters and other dawah carriers are in our duaa and prayers. Yet as dawah carriers who are founded on principle and maintain firm belief in the Promise of Allah, man-made regimes will not and do not inhibit us from this honorable path. إِنَّهُ لَيْسَ لَهُ سُلْطَانٌ عَلَى الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَلَىٰ رَبِّهِمْ يَتَوَكَّلُونَ “Indeed, there is for him no authority over those who have believed and rely upon their Lord.” [An-Nahl: 99]
