So Let the People of Power Come Forward with their Nussrah for the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood
Debate has erupted in Pakistan’s social media over a 7 December 2019 tweet of a video of the serving naval chief calling for Islamic global dominance. Admiral Zafar Mahmood Abbasi declared that Pakistan can be the starting point for the return of global Islamic glory, adding that Muslims dominated the world through Islam, whilst Europeans established dominance through the rejection of religion. Indeed, the call for the dominance of the Deen of Truth is now the popular demand of Muslims, including those in the armed forces. However, the current rulers must not be allowed to misdirect Islamic sentiments to give a new lease of life to the rejected Democracy, by calling for yet another form of it, whether parliamentary, presidential or otherwise. Allah (swt) warned, وَلَا تَلْبِسُوا الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُوا الْحَقَّ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ “And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know [it].” [Surah al-Baqarah 2:42]
O Officers of Pakistan’s Armed Forces! The material strength, that Allah (swt) has granted you, makes you capable to make Pakistan the starting point for the resumption of Islam as a way of life. Bury the stinking corpse of Democracy by granting Nussrah to Hizb ut Tahrir for the re-establishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood. Use your strength to deliver a state with a constitution whose every article has evidences from the Quran and Sunnah. Deliver a state that works to unify the Muslim Lands as one state, rather than dividing and weakening them upon Westphalian nation state lines. Grant your Nussrah for an Islamic leadership that meets military aggression with military force, rather than table talks, tweets and negotiations. Secure by your blood, fire and steel a state that mobilizes the economic resources of Muslims to secure the prosperity for all citizens of the State, rather than surrendering these economic resources to exploitation by the colonialists. Certainly, the Khilafah is not a mere option amongst options, it is an obligation upon us all, the neglect of which is tied to the worst of all deaths, dying upon other than Islam.
RasulAllah ﷺ said, «مَنْ مَاتَ وَلَيْسَ فِي عُنُقِهِ بَيْعَةٌ مَاتَ مِيتَةً جَاهِلِيَّةً» “Whosoever dies without the bay’ah on his neck dies the death of Jahilliyah.” (Muslim).
And the Khilafah is an obligation upon us in every age about which the Final Prophet ﷺ said«وَإِنَّهُ لَا نَبِيَّ بَعْدِي وَسَتَكُونُ خُلَفَاءُ فتَكْثُرُ» قَالُوا: فَمَا تَأْمُرُنَا؟ قَالَ: «فُوا بِبَيْعَةِ الْأَوَّلِ فَالْأَوَّلِ وَأَعْطُوهُمْ حَقَّهُمْ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ سَائِلُهُمْ عَمَّا اسْتَرْعَاهُمْ» “There is no Prophet after me, but there will be Khulaf’aa. They asked, “What do you order us to do?” He replied, “Give them bay’ah one after another, for Allah will ask them about what He entrusted them with.” (Bukhari)
So, usher in a new age of Islam’s global dominance through your Nussrah, earning the good pleasure of Allah (swt).
