Ramadan 1983: The Execution of 13 Members of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Libya

Yes indeed, the enemy of Allah, the enemy of His Messenger, and the enemy of Islam and Muslims, Gaddafi, only ill-treated the Shabab of Hizb ut-Tahrir, because they believe in Allah, The Exalted in Power, The Worthy of all Praise, and work to resume the ruling of Allah on Earth, and carry Islam as a message to the whole world, through the establishment of The Khilafah.

 قُتِلَ أَصْحَابُ الْأُخْدُودِ
النَّارِ ذَاتِ الْوَقُودِ
إِذْ هُمْ عَلَيْهَا قُعُودٌ
وَهُمْ عَلَىٰ مَا يَفْعَلُونَ بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ شُهُودٌ
وَمَا نَقَمُوا مِنْهُمْ إِلَّا أَنْ يُؤْمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ الْعَزِيزِ الْحَمِيدِ
الَّذِي لَهُ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۚ وَاللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ شَهِيدٌ
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ فَتَنُوا الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ ثُمَّ لَمْ يَتُوبُوا فَلَهُمْ عَذَابُ جَهَنَّمَ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابُ الْحَرِيقِ

“Cursed be the Companions of the Pit -the fire well stocked with fuel – when they were seated right beside it witnessing what they did to the believers. The only reason they punished them was because they had belief in Allah, the Almighty, the All-Praiseworthy – Him to whom the Kingdom of the heavens and the earth belongs. Allah is Witness of all things. Those who persecute men and women of the believers, and then do not make tawba, will have the punishment of Hell, will have the punishment of the Burning.” [Al-Burooj, 85: 4-10]

Yes indeed, the enemy of Allah, the enemy of His Messenger, and the enemy of Islam and Muslims, Gaddafi, only ill-treated the Shabab of Hizb ut-Tahrir, because they believe in Allah, The Exalted in Power, The Worthy of all Praise, and work to resume the ruling of Allah on Earth, and carry Islam as a message to the whole world, through the establishment of The Khilafah.

Hizb ut-Tahrir in this praised month, the blessed Ramadan, the month of Qur’an, the month of sacrifice and giving, the month during which the first shaheed of honorable companions fell in the great battle of Badr, announces to the Islamic Ummah the death of 13 of its Shabab, from Libya, Jordan and Palestine, who fell shaheed upon the execution and killing by the unjust, blood-sucking, tyrant, thug, Gaddafi in Libya.

The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

سَيِّدُ الشُّهَدَاءِ حَمْزَةُ بْنُ عَبْدِ المُطَّلِبِ وَ رَجُلٌ قَامَ إِلَى إِمَامٍ جَائِرٍ فَأَمَرَهُ وَ نَهَاهُ فَقَتَلَهُ

“The master of the martyrs is Hamza ibn Abdul Mattalib, and a man who stands (in front of) an oppressive ruler and enjoins the good and forbids the evil and so is killed for it.” [Haakim]

Those shaheeds are: Naser Serees, Ali Ahmed Awadallah, Badee’ Hasan Bader, Nimr Salem Esa, Abdullah Hammodah, Abdullah Al-Masallaty, Al-Kurdy, Saleh Al-Nawal and his nephew, Mohammed Mohathab Haffan, who were executed in the schools and universities, in front of teachers, students, families, and children. One of them was taken down to be found breathing, then they hang him up again, then they took him down, tied him to a car, which started to drag him along the streets, in front of his family, children, teachers and students.

The other three; Majid Al-Qudsy Al-Doweik, Mohammed Bayyoomy, and Al-Faqoory, were killed under torture in the intelligence in Tripoli.

The whole crime of those 13 young men is membership of Hizb ut-Tahrir, their carrying of Islam and work to establish the Islamic Khilafah, as carrying Islam, and working to resume the ruling of Allah on Earth is being deemed nowadays a crime by the tyrant libertine rulers of Muslims.

Abdullah Al-Masallaty was already sentenced to 20 years imprisonment since 1973, 10 of which had already been served. They brought him from jail to court with the charge that he made one person a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir, while he was in prison, thus the court sentenced him to death for that. Gaddafi introduced him as they were working to change the regime in Libya. The thing that drove the enemy of Allah, Gaddafi, to perform this ugly crime and horrible massacre is spite against Hizb ut-Tahrir, because Hizb ut-Tahrir had sent a delegation to him to discuss with him the affair he had announced of denying the usage of the sayings of the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم as evidences.

They sat down with him for 4 hours, they debated with him and explained to him that the sayings of the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم are like the Qur’an; Shari’i evidences must be taken and considered. They also explained to him that it’s kufr to deny the sayings of the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم. The Hizb had asked them to carry a communique with this regard, then the Hizb printed this communique and distributed it all over the Muslim World, thus the enemy of Allah and His Messenger got angry because of that, becoming so mad, and hated the Hizb with awful hatred, which drove him to shed the pure blood of those kind purified Shabab.

We ask Allah to deem their blood a blood of shaheed, to reward them the best rewards on behalf of Islam and Muslims, to elevate their status, and bring them together with the prophets, always-believers, shaheeds, and good people; the best companions, and makes the rewards of us and their families great, and inspire us and them to be patient.

We also ask Him to make their blood a good sign for Islam and Muslims, and signals of victory, to establish the Khilafah, and raise the light of Islam and its return to life.

We, the Shabab of Hizb ut-Tahrir, say to the enemy of Allah and His Messenger and the enemy of Muslims, Gaddafi: the blood of those purified men will be an eternal curse on you, and your shedding of those pure bloods will only make us strengthen our intention and insistence, and will only increase our belief in Allah and confidence in His near victory. Soon will the unjust assailants know what changes their affairs will take!

To Allah we extend our prayers to descend his curses, nonstop, on His enemy; Gaddafi, and to take him severely, and take our revenge from him on our hands, and make that soon with the establishment of the Khilafah State.

وَاللَّهُ غَالِبٌ عَلَىٰ أَمْرِهِ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

“Allah is in control of His affair. However, most of mankind do not know.” [Yusuf, 12:21]
