The President of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, said: “The mass rally in the Wad al-Haddad area in Al-Jazeerah state represents a response to every traitor and agent.” He added, “We refused to kneel to the forces of arrogance and colonialism, and for that they are fighting us. We adhere to our pride, dignity and religion and we are not selling them for wheat, dollars or euros”. In another meeting in Sidira west village in the same state, he said, “People at the time of the Sahabah ate leaves from the trees”.
We in Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Sudan with millions of people of this noble Ummah, we wonder, with a tone of astonishment by these statements:
– Are all these thunderous crowds that have come out in the various cities of Sudan and in the capital, after this regime has made them taste humiliation and hunger, so they run out of patience with standing long hours in the rows of bread, fuel and money that is unjustly withheld from its owners, are all these traitors and agents?! The real traitor is the one who betrayed Allah and His Messenger and the believers; the one who ruled the country for three decades by other than what Allah had revealed, divided the country by America’s order into the South and North, and set up the rest of its territories to fragmentation and made wealth a loot for the international riba-based funds. The traitor is the one who subjects the country and the people to their prescriptions which destroyed crops and animals, and the worst of all is that he governs it by the systems of the Western Kaffir colonizers, and the result was this suffocating life: وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَنْ ذِكْرِي فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنْكًا وَنَحْشُرُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَعْمَى “And whoever turns away from My remembrance – indeed, he will have a depressed life and We will gather him on the Day of Resurrection blind.” [Ta-Ha: 124]. So, if you really do not kneel to anyone other than Allah, the situation would not have been as such!
– Where is the pride and dignity when you beg America to accept your rule, and send delegations after another to the White House at all times, and then it is not satisfied with you, so again you run humiliated to Russia seeking protection! Do we forget that Allah Almighty will not be satisfied unless we apply His entire method in governance, politics, economy and other systems of life? The Messenger of Allah ﷺ says: «مَنِ الْتَمَسَ رِضَا اللَّهِ بِسَخَطِ النَّاسِ كَفَاهُ اللَّهُ مُؤْنَةَ النَّاسِ، وَمَنِ الْتَمَسَ رِضَا النَّاسِ بِسَخَطِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَكَّلَهُ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِلَى النَّاسِ» “Whoever seeks Allah’s pleasure by the people’s wrath, Allah will suffice him from the people. And who ever seeks the people’s pleasure by Allah’s wrath, Allah will entrust him to the people.”
– Moreover, where is this Deen that we will not sell with wheat or dollars?! This regime has not ruled by Islam for one day. Islam is not mere slogans that deceive ordinary Muslims, but the system in Islam is the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood, not a republic, nor a monarchy, nor any other system that has brought people’s lives to this hell. The system of Islam is justice and mercy, so enough deception, for you will not deceive but yourselves, Allah (swt) says: يُخَادِعُونَ اللَّهَ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَمَا يَخْدَعُونَ إِلَّا أَنْفُسَهُمْ وَمَا يَشْعُرُون “They [think to] deceive Allah and those who believe, but they deceive not except themselves and perceive [it] not.” [Al-Baqara: 9].
As for the fact that the Sahabah have eaten the leaves of the trees, they were equal in that. In the time of distress, our noble Prophet ﷺ tied two stones on his stomach when his companions tied one stone. So, are you equal to the Ummah in these crises that you made with your hands when you complied with the terms of the International Monetary Fund (IMF)?! begging to continue seated on the crooked chairs of ruling!!
Finally, we say to the regime and its guards: Fear Allah in this Ummah, which you brought it to this state of misery, and then when they came out unarmed asking for the Truth, you confronted them with force and bullets, then you label them with agency and treachery. Soon, with the permission of Allah, the Truth will return to its people so that Allah’s justice will prevail in His land through the second Khilafah Rashidah (rightly guided Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood, which these days are its days, and the present time is its time, and it is the glad tiding of our noble Prophet ﷺ who said that after this forced rule there will be Khilafah Rashidah on the method of the Prophethood. For the like of this let the workers work.
