O Muslims of Pakistan!
Alhamdulillah we are witness to the blessed month of Ramadhan again. As we strive to draw closer to Allah سبحانه وتعالى, we must remember that previous generations chose this most blessed of all months to be victorious against the enemies of Islam. Under the shade of the Islamic state and its army, fearless Muslims witnessed victories against enemies, even when the enemy had more material strength and numbers. The Muslims defeated the mushrikeen at the battle of Badr and opened Makkah to Islam, they liberated Masjid al-Aqsa from the Crusaders and defeated the brutal Tartar invaders. Such army commanders and rulers succeeded against powerful enemies, because they were firm upon the truth, fearing none but Allah سبحانه وتعالى.
RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم said,
لاَ تَزَالُ طَائِفَةٌ مِنْ أُمَّتِي يُقَاتِلُونَ عَلَى الْحَقِّ ظَاهِرِينَ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ قَالَ فَيَنْزِلُ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَيَقُولُ أَمِيرُهُمْ تَعَالَ صَلِّ لَنَا فَيَقُولُ لاَ إِنَّ بَعْضَكُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ أُمَرَاءُ تَكْرِمَةَ اللَّهِ هَذِهِ الأُمَّةَ
“There will always be a group, victorious in fighting for the Truth until Day of Resurrection. Then will Eesa ibn Maryam (as) will descend and he will be asked by their Ameer to lead the prayer, but he will reply, No, your ameer has to be from you and this is the honor from Allah.” [Muslim]
Consider carefully our situation in the light of these hadeeth, O Muslims, when the kuffar fight the Muslims, whether it is the Jews in Palestine, the Hindu mushrikeen in Kashmir or the American crusaders in Afghanistan and Iraq. The kuffar enemies will fight us throughout the ages, but they will be defeated, if we adhere to Islam completely. So, we must never fear the enemy, nor act in fear of them, for the coward will eventually fail, even if he has the largest of armies and the most sophisticated of weapons.
Our Muslim brothers in Afghanistan are a good example. Even without an Islamic state or an Islamic army, their fearless resistance has caused the Americans to be fearful, frustrated and exhausted, after nearly eight years of trying to subdue them. On 19 July 2009, the Los Angeles Times reported that the US Defense Secretary Robert Gates said about Afghanistan, “After the Iraq (war) experience, nobody is prepared to have a long slog where it is not apparent we are making headway…The troops are tired. The American people are pretty tired.” The problem is so severe that American soldiers are committing suicide or drinking until senselessness to escape fear. Moreover, knowing the weaknesses of their soldiers, America’s counterinsurgency experts have insisted that they now need 600,000 troops to succeed against the Muslims, about nine times the numbers they have now.
So, O Muslims, if without an Islamic state or an Islamic army, fearless Muslims can prevent the kuffar from settling their occupation, even though there is no decisive victory, what if fearless Muslims faced the enemy with their own Islamic State and their own Islamic army? Would there not be decisive victories after decisive victories, as there were for centuries in the golden era of Islam?
O Muslims of Pakistan!
Our enemies realize the source of our strength, Islam, more than even some of us do. This is why America seeks to spread fear, when she wants to exploit the Muslims with powerful states and strong armies. So, sometimes America threatens to invade Pakistan, or to take our nuclear weapons or even to divide Pakistan into pieces, as mentioned in the reports of the Reagan Institute, the Carter Foundation and the American Institute of South Asian Studies.
In fact, at every stage of America’s war, the agent rulers of Pakistan have spread fear as a loyal service to America, plunging us into greater dangers. In 2001, when America was without the essential means to attack Afghanistan, Musharraf spread fear within the army and the masses, in order to grant America intelligence, air bases and air corridors on the basis of “saving Pakistan.” Musharraf even sidelined the brave officers who saw the grave dangers in his approach. Our situation worsened, for America then used its foothold in Afghanistan to open the doors for India to spread its mischief. Musharraf then used fear again to open the doors for American intelligence to establish offices throughout Pakistan. Again our situation worsened, for American intelligence is a terrorist organization more harmful than any other, which has caused misery, bombings and assassinations, wherever it has become entrenched, from Latin America to South East Asia. Then Zardari and his henchmen spread fear so that our soldiers are sacrificed for the sake of America’s war in the tribal areas, worsening our situation yet again.
Rather than acting out of fear, as the agent rulers and our enemies wish us to, we should ask: How will America annihilate Pakistan, when the cowardly crusaders cannot even stabilize Afghanistan, a country of such meager resources, despite nearly eight years of efforts? How will America even sustain an attack against Pakistan, when the very food and fuel for its army comes through Pakistan? How? How? How? The falsehood of American threats is obvious to the aware. Even whilst threatening to wipe out Pakistan, the strongest of all Muslim states, as if it were a mere fly, America insists that it is Pakistan alone that can help America emerge from its quagmire in Afghanistan!
O Muslims of Pakistan!
The victorious group, which RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم mentioned, is comprised of those fearless Muslims who form the entourage of the Islamic state and its army. Or in our time, when there is no Islamic state, it is those fearless Muslims that are working to establish that Islamic state, whose Islamic army will victorious over the enemy, may we be from amongst them. It is this state that will inshAllah fulfill many of the glad tidings that RasulAllah informed us about, whether it is fighting and defeating the Jews, opening Rome to Islam or greeting Esa عليه السلام before the Day of Resurrection, for as mentioned in the hadith, when he descends, he عليه السلام will find an Islamic state with its Ameer!
This Ramadhan, we are between two alternatives: either we are submissive of what the agent rulers are doing to us, and whatever results from the domination of the Kuffar and from our utter ruin in this life and in the Akhira. Or we move effectively to remove these traitorous rulers, working with those sincere Muslims, who are working for the re-establishment of the Khilafah state and whatever ensues by our return to our past glory as the greatest Ummah and the most powerful state.
O People of Power! O Muslims of the Armed Forces!
The soil of the Islamic Lands is soaked with the blood of martyrs who fought the kuffar throughout the ages, raising the Kalima of Allah سبحانه وتعالى. Were it not for your brave predecessors opening new lands to Islam, paving the way for millions to embrace the Kalima, many of us would not even be Muslim. This, Ramadhan, a month of victory after victory, we ask you: who will be today’s Salahudeen to rescue the Muslims from today’s crusaders? Have you not had enough humiliation at the hands of the Americans who order you and insist you obey, whilst striking the lands that you have sworn to defend with missiles? Rush forth and give the Nussrah to Hizb ut-Tahrir, to establish the Khilafah state and make the tribal areas a graveyard for the American crusaders, like the British and Russians before them, and a turning point for the entire Muslim Ummah. You have nothing to fear, when the Lord of the Worlds, Himself, is on your side and not one step you take in His path will be for nothing. Allah سبحانه وتعالى said,
فَلاَ تَهِنُوا وَتَدْعُوا إِلَى السَّلْمِ وَأَنْتُمْ الأَعْلَوْنَ وَاللَّهُ مَعَكُمْ وَلَنْ يَتِرَكُمْ أَعْمَالَكُمْ ْ
“Be not weary and faint-hearted, crying for peace, when you are the uppermost: for Allah is with you, and will never put you in loss for your (good) deeds.” [Surah Muhammad 47:35]
