Obituary of a Da’wah Carrier of the First Generation: The great political thinker Yasser Ghaith

مِّنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَيْهِ فَمِنْهُم مَّن قَضَىٰ نَحْبَهُ

وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَنتَظِرُ وَمَا بَدَّلُوا تَبْدِيلًا

“Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah. Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration”

(Al-Ahzaab: 23)

In submission to the command of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala and to His Qadaa, Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah Jordan mourns to the Muslim Ummah in general and to the Muslims in Jordan and Palestine, one of its faithful sincere pure members from the first generation, a Sheikh of his loyal elders, man of great tasks, and a political thinker:

Yasser Khalaf Al Ghaith (Abu Ammar)

His soul (Rahmatullah alaihi) passed away on Saturday, during Dhuhr time, 14/10/2017, at the age of 71 years old, which he spent in the obedience of Allah (swt), carrying the Islamic dawah and working to resume the Islamic way of life through the implementation of the Khilafah Rashidah (righteous Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood. He did not know fatigue nor boredom, he did not know hesitation or slowness in serving Islam and carrying dawah. He was patient, firm and trusted in Allah (swt), certain of His victory and fulfillment.

وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَىٰ لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُم مِّن بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا وَمَن كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ

“Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their religion – the one which He has chosen for them; and that He will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace: ‘They will worship Me (alone) and not associate aught with Me. ‘If any do reject Faith after this, they are rebellious and wicked.” Optimistic about the good tidings of the Prophet ﷺ, «… ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلَافَةٌ عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ النُّبُوَّةِ». “…Then there will be a Khilafah upon the methodology of the Prophethood.”

He was imprisoned for advocating and working for Islam in the unjust prisons of the unjust Jordanian regime for three years due to injustice, hatred and aggression after being tortured that almost led to his death at the hands of the criminal Jordanian intelligence agents and criminals of so-called ‘revolutionary monitoring’ the informants of Palestine Liberation Organization, despite that, he was not discouraged from continuing to carry the Da’wah with all energy and dedication.

We ask Allah, the Most Merciful, to show wide mercy towards our Brother Abu Ammar, to make his abode the blissful gardens of Jannah with the Prophets, the Truthful Ones, the Martyrs, the Righteous and the best of their company. We also ask Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala to bestow us and his family with patience and solace, and to increase their reward, and we also ask Allah to avenge the evil of revenge of those who have wronged him and those who tortured him.

إِنَّا للهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ

“Verily to Allah do we belong and verily to Allah do we return.

(Al-Baqarah: 156)
