Since the Fall of Our Khilafah on 28 Rajab 1342, what has the Ummah Seen of Good and what has it Suffered of Calamities?!
The Khilafah, which once provided sanctuary for those who were persecuted because of their beliefs, is no more and so the Muslims themselves are fleeing from their war torn lands, risking suffocation and drowning.
The Khilafah, which was the leading state in the world for over a thousand years, with its armies opening new lands to Islam, is no more and so the Muslims find themselves defenseless before aggressing enemies.
The Khilafah, whose economy was a shining example for the entire world, is no more and so the Muslims now have their backs broken by hardship, even though the lion’s share of the world’s resources is found under their very feet.
The Khilafah, whose universities were the favored destination in the world for the princes and princesses of Europe, is no more and so our youth clamber over each other to reach the West for a decent education.
It is the order of RasulAllah ﷺ that the Muslims give Bay’ah (Pledge of Allegiance) to a single Khaleefah in every era, who would rule them by the Book of Allah (swt) and the Sunnah of RasulAllah ﷺ.
RasulAllah ﷺ said:
کانَتْ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ تَسُوسُهُمْ الْأَنْبِيَاءُ كُلَّمَا هَلَكَ نَبِيٌّ خَلَفَهُ نَبِيٌّ وَإِنَّهُ لَا
نَبِيَّ بَعْدِي وَسَيَكُونُ خُلَفَاءُ فَيَكْثُرُونَ قَالُوا فَمَا تَأْمُرُنَا قَالَ فُوا بِبَيْعَةِ الْأَوَّلِ فَالْأَوَّلِ أَعْطُوهُمْ حَقَّهُمْ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ سَائِلُهُمْ عَمَّا اسْتَرْعَاهُمْ
“The affairs of Bani Isra’eel were looked after by the Prophets. After a Prophet died, he was succeeded by another Prophet. There is no Prophet after me, but there will be Khulaf’aa. They asked, “What do you order us to do?” He replied, “Give them bay’ah one after another, for Allah will ask them about what He entrusted them with.” (Bukhari)
