Jordanian Governors Fight Hizb ut Tahrir and its Shabab with the Crime Prevention Law

Evidence of the Regime’s Criminality in Fighting Islam and its Dawah Carriers

It saddens us seeing a group of Muslims who consider working with Allah Almighty and in the way of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, a crime that must be prevented and equated to criminals, while Allah the Almighty says:أَمْ نَجْعَلُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ كَالْمُفْسِدِينَ فِي الْأَرْضِ أَمْ نَجْعَلُ الْمُتَّقِينَ كَالْفُجَّارِ “Or should we treat those who believe and do righteous deeds like corrupters in the land? Or should We treat those who fear Allah like the wicked?” [Sad: 28]. And He (swt) says: أَفَنَجْعَلُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ كَالْمُجْرِمِينَ * مَا لَكُمْ كَيْفَ تَحْكُمُونَ “Then will We treat the Muslims like the criminals? * What is [the matter] with you? How do you judge?” [Al-Qalam: 35-36]

This is exactly what the Jordanian governors are doing against the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir; Bashir Hamashri, Yahya al-Khabas and Ahmed Zaki, are only a witness to this unjust and oppressive equality. And before them were other Shabab; where the governors had arrested the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir administratively after the judiciary cleared their way, imposed house arrest on them for long periods of time, sometimes reaching a year, and demanded bonds amounting to 100,000 dinars, based on the powers given to them by the Crime Prevention Law, which enabled them to oppress people and waste their dignity, and to include their names in file (d)!! It is a file containing the lists of names of every thinker, Da’wah carrier, proclaimer of the Truth, and detained activist, having been referred to the governor from the various security agencies or after the verdict of the judiciary to release him. The power to deal with it is delegated to a committee called the Security Council, consisting of a representative of the intelligence, a representative for preventive security, a representative of the general security and a representative of the Ministry of Interior headed by the governor, which meets every week to consider the names on the list, and in light of the intelligence recommendations, the decision is taken against the detainee.

While the Prevention of Crimes Law provided the Administrative Governor with absolute power to hear cases of robbery, drugs and other crimes and to have the final decision against them, it excludes everyone whose name is listed in file (d), thus this power is removed to be placed in the hands of the Security Committee, which always complies with the decisions of the intelligence service, which has made this law which was originally found to prevent crimes (thefts, drugs, assaults on people…) as a means of despotism and oppression against the honorable. So, why all this hatred and hostility towards this group of the pure and the pious Shabab, or is it the instructions of your regimes and rulers in their subordination to the Colonial Kaffir Western countries the worst enemies of Islam and Muslims?!

We present to the Ummah what the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir have been subjected to of oppression, injustice and the equality of its Shabab with criminals, from arbitrarily detention after the judiciary’s sentences to release them, through continuous detention without justification, or detention in prisons far from their residence to torture and oppress women and children of their families, only because they made an oath to Allah (swt) to carry the Islamic call intellectually and politically, and because they are working to establish the Khilafah Rashidah (righteous Caliphate) and carry the Islamic call. We present that so that people realize that the regime in Jordan regards these acts that please Allah and His Messenger as a crime that must be prevented and repelled, tortures those who practice them and equates between الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ “Those who believe and do righteous deeds” and الْمُفْسِدِينَ فِي الْأَرْضِ “The corrupters in the land”.

If they think that by such treatment they are breaking the resolve of the Da’wah carriers, then let them know that the resolve of those who work with Allah and on the method of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, their resolve is solid drawing the help and steadfastness from Allah, thus, it is robustious to them and to those behind them, it will not soften or break, because we bear that for the sake of Allah’s pleasure… And remind those who stand in the face of the Da’wah carriers of the words of Allah (swt): إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُؤْذُونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ لَعَنَهُمُ اللَّهُ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَالْآخِرَةِ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُمْ عَذَاباً مُّهِيناً * وَالَّذِينَ يُؤْذُونَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ بِغَيْرِ مَا اكْتَسَبُوا فَقَدِ احْتَمَلُوا بُهْتَاناً وَإِثْماً مُّبِيناً “Indeed, those who abuse Allah and His Messenger – Allah has cursed them in this world and the Hereafter and prepared for them a humiliating punishment. * And those who harm believing men and believing women for [something] other than what they have earned have certainly born upon themselves a slander and manifest sin.” [Al-Ahzab: 57-58].

These hideous practices against Da’wah carriers are not strange; since the beginning of the message of Islam, Quraysh have practiced various forms of persecution and torture against Muhammad ﷺ and his companions, but they have not reached the level of vileness and loss of morality that some of you who practice this persecution have reached in order to satisfy the enemies of the Ummah from the colonial Western Kaffir states, through rulers who they set up for this aim!

وَاتَّقُوا يَوْماً تُرْجَعُونَ فِيهِ إِلَى اللَّهِ ثُمَّ تُوَفَّى كُلُّ نَفْسٍ مَّا كَسَبَتْ وَهُمْ لَا يُظْلَمُونَ

“And fear a Day when you will be returned to Allah. Then every soul will be compensated for what it earned, and they will not be treated unjustly.”

[Al-Baqara: 281]
