The Arrest of the Imams of Mosques in Kadugli Will Not Silence the Voice of Truth

The security forces in the town of Kadugli, the capital of Southern Kordofan State, arrested Bilal Nasr Abu Daken, a member of Hizb ut Tahrir and the Imam of the Al-Sina’at Mosque in Kadugli, from his home on Saturday 26/01/2019. He was taken to an unknown destination, and then taken into custody to the police station on Monday, 28 January 2019, without specifying a criminal charge; the police department even refused to disclose the material on which the notice was opened.

This failed regime, which wears the mask of Islam and frightens people of communism and secularism, and then its criminals arrest the Imams, who show the truth to the people and enlighten them in Islam, practically prove their war against Islam and its preachers. They are afraid of the Imams who reveal their falsity, deceit, and mislead of the people in the name of Islam, while Islam is innocent of them.

We in Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah of Sudan emphasize the following about this shameful situation:

Firstly: The arrest of Hizb ut Tahrir members, especially the Imams of the Mosques, will not silence the voice of truth, until Allah prevails it or we die in this path.

Secondly: We are seeking real change on the basis of the great Islam, considering it as a duty imposed by Allah (swt) on the Muslims, especially during this time; in which the provisions of Islam have been erased, and the regimes of infidelity have instigated in leadership and power.

Thirdly: The regime, which remained playing with the emotions of people with Islam and its slogans for three decades, has retraced; publically executing America’s schemes and conspiracies in this country of good people, separating one third of the country and handing it to the kaffir colonizer, and prepares the rest of the country for fragmentation and disruption. It also presents his services to Russia, the spiteful to Islam and Muslims, and then oppresses people by taking their money in vain, and wrongfully causes corruption on land. This regime is inevitably falling, sooner or later. So we warn the regime’s tools against the wrath of Allah (swt) in this world, and His torment in the Hereafter, due to their repulse from the path of Allah, and their support to the unjust with their injustice. The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: «إِنَّهُ سَيَكُونُ عَلَيْكُمْ أُمَرَاءُ فَلا تُعِينُوهُمْ عَلَى ظُلْمِهِمْ وَلا تُصَدِّقُوهُمْ بِكَذِبِهِمْ فَإِنَّ مَنْ أَعَانَهُمْ عَلَى ظُلْمِهِمْ وَصَدَّقَهُمْ بِكَذِبِهِمْ فَلَنْ يَرِدَ عَلَيَّ الْحَوْضَ» “There will be rulers over you who will tell you to do what they do not do themselves. Whoever believes in and confirms their lies, and helps them in their wrongdoing, is not of me and I am not of him, and he will never come to me at the cistern.” Narrated by Ahmad.

We also order the immediate release of our honorable brother Bilal, or to bring him to trial, if there was a crime in the matter of his enjoining the good and forbidding the evil.

وَلا تَحْسَبَنَّ اللَّهَ غَافِلاً عَمَّا يَعْمَلُ الظَّالِمُونَ إِنَّمَا يُؤَخِّرُهُمْ لِيَوْمٍ تَشْخَصُ فِيهِ الأَبْصَارُ

“And do not think that Allah is unaware of what the evildoers are doing: He but grants them respite until the Day when their eyes will stare in horror”
