On the twenty-eighth of Rajab 1342 after Hijra corresponding to the third of March 1924 the Khilafah (Caliphate) was destroyed, when Muslims were unaware, at the hands of the Kuffar, at the time, Britain and with the help of a handful Arabs and Turks traitors. They destroyed the Islamic state, the Khilafah state the political entity that was established by the Messenger of Allah ﷺ and the rightly guided caliphs who followed after him. Decades, after this great calamity, the Ummah is coming back to its senses, it woke up and realized the magnitude of the crime that occurred and what happened after the destruction of the Khilafah state. After we were the greatest Ummah and the most powerful nation that extended from Indonesia eastwards to Morocco westward and from Central Europe northward to the depths of Africa to the south; one of its Caliph once addressed the clouds, saying:
“Rain wherever you wish, your kharaj (land tax) will come back to me.” We were a nation that invaded and did not get invaded. This is how we were under the shadow of Islam and its state, and when the state of Islam fell our state; we became weak rival states, weightless and worthless. Palestine was occupied and Iraq, Syria and Chechnya were destroyed. The West appointed a guardian on every country, who implements Kufr and protects the interests of the kafir criminal West, after it killed many Muslims. No nation in the world suffered killings and destruction like the Muslims and Muslim lands. But the Ummah today is finding the way of its glory and aspire to its future by the resumption of Islamic way of life and the restoration of the rule by what Allah has revealed, their voices are raised in mosques and squares: “The Ummah wants Khilafah once again”. Although there is a blackout by the media of the criminal West and its tools, but the call for the resumption of the Khilafah state has irked the countries of disbelief, their followers and their agents. Their tongues exposed their fear and scheming against the return of the Khilafah again, but what their hearts conceal is far greater. They are afraid of the upcoming promise and a living Ummah that does not die, so they intensified their brutality, inflicting the people, stones and trees in the Muslim countries, and even in the world, thinking that they are able to stop the tide and the coming force and the undoubted promise, Allah (swt) says: إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُنفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ لِيَصُدُّوا عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَسَيُنفِقُونَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ عَلَيْهِمْ حَسْرَةً ثُمَّ يُغْلَبُونَ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِلَىٰ جَهَنَّمَ يُحْشَرُونَ “Indeed, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to avert [people] from the way of Allah. So they will spend it; then it will be for them a [source of] regret; then they will be overcome. And those who have disbelieved – unto Hell they will be gathered” [Al-Anfal: 36]
O Muslims in the land of the Gathering and Rabat:
You are undoubtedly aware of the effects of the absence of the Khilafah state, especially on these days of the anniversary of the battle of Yarmouk in the land of the Gathering and Rabat, the land of victories and glories, the land of Mu’ta, on the day we lived under the banner of the great Islam. When this banner returns we will fight the Jewish entity as in the glad-tidings of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. But today we live in unprecedented misery, hardship and humiliation. Your wealth was stolen and your institutions were violated, and your property has been sold, and the worst of Allah’s creation, the Jews, has dominated over you through the shameful, disgraceful and false agreement according to the Shariah. They have killed your sons on your land, owned your land due to the treason of the head of the regime, which Britain appointed as a prince and then a king, the land of the Baqoura is not a far example for you – and your sanctities have been desecrated under the claim of a mandate that enabled the Jewish entity to take over the land of Al-Aqsa, the first of the two Qiblas. America controlled you, it orders and it is obeyed, you are not in control of your own decisions, and it controls you via the International Monetary Fund to make you occupied with securing your daily living to keep you away from thinking and real change according to Islam. Under the shade of the state of Islam, you were a great Ummah that was elevated, feared by the Kuffar, and does not know sleep, but look at your reality today, this situation does not please Allah!
The Khilafah is the state that governs you by the Book of Allah (swt) and the Sunnah of His Messenger ﷺ, and path of the Caliphs like Abu Bakr, Omar, Othman, and Ali, to have a caliph who implements Shariah, it is an executive political entity that implement the rules of Islam and carries Islam an invitation and a message to the world.
The Khilafah is the crown of the jewels, if it is lost the Ummah is lost from existence. The Khilafah implements Allah’s law on us and declares jihad and applies the Hudood as explained by the Prophet ﷺ: «حَدٌّ يُقَامُ فِي الْأَرْضِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ مَطَرِ أَرْبَعِينَ صَبَاحًا» “Establishing one Had (punishment) on earth is better than forty days of rain.” [Narrated by Ibn Habban]
Khilafah will carry Islam to the whole world, the Prophet ﷺ said: «لَغَدْوَةٌ أَوْ رَوْحَةٌ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ، خَيْرٌ مِمَّا تَطْلُعُ عَلَيْهِ الشَّمْسُ وَتَغْرُبُ» “A single endeavor in Allah’s Cause in the afternoon or in the forenoon is better than all that on which the sun rises and sets.” [Narrated by Bukhari]
The Khilafah is the collection of the good, the obligation of your Lord and the glad-tiding of your Prophet ﷺ and the source of your glory, it defeats your enemy, and is the liberator of your countries and your sanctities and the protector of your souls and your honour and the beacon of good and justice around the world.
Will you not respond to the caller of good, Hizb ut Tahrir; the trustworthy that advise you, the guide that does not lie to you, and work for this great obligation and support the workers who carry the banner of the Khilafah who work for it day and night to find it and re-establish it as before; it will rule by Allah’s law and will implement it and carry this guidance and mercy to all mankind.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ
“O you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life. And know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart and that to Him you will be gathered.” [Al-Anfal: 24]
