For Liberation from Slavery to the US, We Must Reject Democracy and Establish the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of Prophethood

We will never see liberation from slavery to the US, that we so strongly desire, as long as we are ruled by Democracy. It is Democracy that allows its assemblies to pass the dictates, demands, policies and laws that the Western colonialists make to subjugate us. Thus, Pakistan’s economy is subjugated to the dictates of […]

Democracy’s judiciary will move at lightning speed to secure verdicts that favor the enemies of the Islamic Ummah, including the release of Raymond Davis and clemency for Kulbhushan Jadhav. However, Democracy’s judiciary drags its heels when it comes to the commands and prohibitions of Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw). The Federal Shariat Court (FSC) […]

After the Failure of Both Parliamentary and Presidential Democracy, It is Time for Khilafah

The failure of democracy is glaringly obvious. After the failure of Musharraf’s presidential democracy and the parliamentary democracies of Zardari, Nawaz and Imran Khan, it is clear that any ruling system based on laws originating from limited human minds has failed.

The Failure of the PTI Project Seals the Fate of Democracy! Pakistan needs Khilafah Now, not the Previous Leaders!

Doing the same thing repeatedly will never yield different results and that applies to Democracy. The experience of “New Pakistan” after old Pakistan failed because both old Pakistan and New Pakistan were in fact the same Pakistan, under the same colonialist, capitalist Democracy. The vision of New Pakistan, of eradicating corruption and ensuring transparent leadership, […]

Islam Taxes the Financially Capable, not the Poor and Indebted!

GST and income tax are regressive taxation. Regressive taxation burdens the poor and indebted. Islam forbids regressive taxation. The poor and indebted receive Zakah. The Khilafah taxes only the financially capable. Yearly Zakah on trading merchandise above Nisaab. Yearly Kharaaj from agricultural land owners. The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, لَا يَدْخُلُ الْجَنَّةَ صَاحِبُ مَكْسٍ […]
