Iran after Forty Years of Revolution

In 1979, Khomeini succeeded in overthrowing the Shah of Iran Reza Pahlavi and founded an “Islamic” republic in Iran based on what was then called the Wilaya al Faqih, allowing the clerics to be at the head of the pyramid in power governing by what they see as Islam, which is in fact far away from the Deen of Islam in its entirety.

In the same year, Hizb ut Tahrir published a book revoking the constitution of this new state, which was prepared by a group of their jurists, politicians and intellectuals who concluded what is known today as the Islamic Republic. Their first violation of Sharia was to make legislation for the people and people the source of power, just as in the Western or Eastern Democratic republics, in addition to their endorsement of Shiite sectarianism in the Constitution and many other infringements and falsifications that the party explained in its book, Revoking the Iranian Constitution.

This revolution was at that time promising and motivating for the distressed and vulnerable peoples of the Muslim countries who hoped to find in the revolution a path to salvation from their rulers through what Khomeini then called the export of the revolution. Today, forty years later, Iran groans under the yoke of turban-wearing dictatorships and languish under the oppression of man-made constitutions that are not different from its predecessors and the similar constitutions of the rest of the Muslim countries.

In addition to intellectual repression, political authoritarianism and persecution of those who oppose or contravene, the economic situation is even worse, from the deterioration of the currency, high prices, rising unemployment, increasing poverty and other economic problems of the society and the consequent humanitarian and political problems. This is because neither the Iranian constitution nor the regime in force has a legal basis or a commitment to the Ahkam (provisions) of Allah and His religion and compliance with His law. Allah says the Truth: وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَن ذِكْرِي فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنكاً “And whoever turns away from My remembrance – indeed, he will have a depressed life” [Ta-Ha: 124]

Yes, there was nothing of Islam in the state except the name in a worthless title, and in my view, this is intended in itself to distort the shining and clear image of Islam and its representation in republics and kingdoms that have nothing to do with it, and whose slogans do not increase nearness to Allah, nor keep more distance from the tyrant, as was the case with the ISIS organization, which falsely called itself a state of Caliphate! This is in addition to the betrayal of these mullahs to Allah, His Messenger and the believers by their cooperation with who they call the “Great Satan”, whether in facilitating the occupation of Afghanistan or the colonization of Iraq and the burning of Syria, Yemen and other Muslim countries.

Forty years have passed, repeating the slogan “Death to America”, yet, America is in its vicinity and shelter to implement through it and with it its plans to destroy the Middle East and protect the Jewish entity.

Forty years have passed, and we hear the slogan “Death to Israel”, but we did not hear a single gunshot, not to mention a missile or a tank directed against this vicious occupying enemy. The Revolutionary Guard Forces became within gunshot from the occupied borders of Palestine, but instead of fighting Jews they kill children and women in Hama and Aleppo and their countryside. They surround the elders in Ghouta and in Afrin, and throw lava over our people in Idlib and the rest of the beloved Ash-Sham.

Woe to that revolution that rose on the necks of martyrs who sacrificed in the way of Allah for Islam and its arrival to governance, so Islam became its enemy fighting it alongside Russia and America and the butcher of the era Bashar Assad.

It is strange that some people are still deluded or fantasizing that this revolution represents a resistance front and that it stands by the Muslims in their issues, such as the issue of Palestine, the Rohingya issue in Myanmar, the Uighur issue in East China, or other Muslims issues that need military force to resolve and to lift the injustice of the vulnerable, who since his arrival on the French plane, Khomeini has continued repeating saying it is a revolution of the vulnerable.

The real revolution in which people guarantee the lifting of injustice from humanity is the coming revolution that will overthrow the dark regimes and the existing constitutions to be replaced by the promising Khilafah state (Caliphate), the Khilafah Rashidah upon the Method of Prophethood.

Allah is our Protector; and Excellent is the Protector, and Excellent is the Helper.
