Praise be to Allah, who by His grace the righteous deeds are accomplished, and prayers and peace be upon the Master of creation Muhammad ﷺ. For more than a decade and a half, Al-Okab Forum has been a beacon of thought filled with lively discussions about the realities of the Islamic Ummah and the challenges it faces. It looks ahead to the future horizons and plans for it, rouses the relentless work for the resumption of the Islamic way of life, manifests the Islamic thoughts, destroys and challenges the secular thoughts and the like. And here we are in the Central Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir herald to the Islamic Ummah the resumption of the activities of the Forum, to continue its journey along with its sister channel Naqed Media Forum, in addition to the pages of Hizb ut Tahrir’s media office and other Hizb’s websites, and the Hizb’s pages on the social media sites, especially in light of the fierce attack on those websites and pages, which were the target of international campaigns to close them and obscuring them.
We have seen that communication and discussions on the pages of social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter are deleted within minutes, and ideas disappear in the folds of the gears of those websites that are renewed every moment, so, those thoughts and the fruits of minds do not reach except a few followers, so the great efforts and the production of the creative minds are lost by their loss. While, we found that the forum pages maintain those fruits for decades, which reach the reader and the follower in a wonderful form of coordination and refinement befitting the fruits of minds.
We also found that thoughts need to be explored, they cannot be reached in the speed of the social networking sites, so the Forum was more deserving of these thoughts and worthier for them. The serious Ummah that senses its way to regain its status as the master of nations and the best Ummah that have been raised up for mankind needs profoundness, deliberation, planning, consultation and dialogue. So, perhaps Allah Almighty make our forums and websites complement the activities of our scholars, our Shabab, and our Ummah in their work to fulfill the obligation of the resumption of the Islamic way of life by establishing the second rightly guided Khilafah (Caliphate) state on the method of the Prophethood, the state in which Allah will establish for the Muslims their religion which he has preferred for them.
Registration for the forum is open, and may Allah make in your participation in the forum all the goodness, and make our work purely for His sake, and help us, and give us success to do what He loves and what pleases Him.
Praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds.
