Q&A: Is the Ummah ready to face the consequences of establishing Khilafah?


Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu

The respected scholar Ata Bin Khalil, after greeting,

All of us know that the Ummah today is closer than any other time to announce the Khilafah State, which will be covered by an urgent newsflash that we could hear any time by the will of Allah. But my question, depending on your location and knowledge of the current events, is the Islamic Ummah ready now for such a great thing, especially when we put into consideration that the tasks that follow establishing the state may be is much more difficult than the work to establish it, so is the Ummah ready to tolerate such consequences?

Wa Alaikum Assalam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu

My brother, the issue is that Allah سبحانه وتعالى grants us victory, so that we can establish the Khilafah state. As to if the Ummah is ready to tolerate these consequences? Yes, and what is lacking is a pure pious leadership that leads it to the good deeds in the shade of the Khilafah Rashidah. Allah سبحانه وتعالى describes this Ummah,

كُنْتُمْ خير امة اخرجت للناس تأمرون بالمعروف وتنهون عن المنكر وتؤمنون بالله

“You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah.”

(Al-Imran: 110)

Indeed, destructive cultures, void ideas, and dangerous concepts have dominated over our Ummah; moreover, the Islamic bond has weakened, and nationalistic and patriotic bonds have spread instead… But all of this is not what’s deeply within the majority of the Ummah, but it floats on the surface because of the unjust rulers and the media that serves their interests. However, there are good deeds, and I guess that you follow the work of the Hizb and can see that the Khilafah has a public opinion now, and it has become obvious that the Khilafah has become a public demand after which calling for it used to be a shame!

O my brother, the vital nations even if they were subjected to factors of weakness and separation they would revolt. The crusaders have dwelled in our countries for 200 years, and in Jerusalem on its own about 90 years, then the Hiteen Battle occurred in Rabi’ al-Akher 583 AH. Afterwards, liberating Jerusalem in Rajab 583 AH, then they expelled the crusaders the worst expulsion, after Salahuddin had removed the Fatimiyya in Egypt and fixed the bonds in the Abbasid Khilafah. As well as Tatars who destroyed Baghdad and killed the Khaleefah on 656 AH, so the Khilafah moved to Egypt, and after two years Ayn Jalout Battle occurred in 658 AH, and the Tatars were demolished.

Thus, o dear brother, restoring the Khilafah with its pure and pious leadership will restore the glory and conquests of the Ummah by the will of Allah.

May Allah bless you for your care and concern.

Your brother,

Ata Bin Khalil Abu Al-Rashtah
