The Director of Dawah and Guidance in the locality of Jabal Awliya handed over Brother Dr. Mohammed Abdel Rahman – member of Hizb ut Tahrir, the Imam and preacher of Ibadur-Rahman Mosque, in the neighborhood of al-Munawarah in Kalakala, to the Security and Intelligence agency after a long discussion, where the Director of Dawah and Guidance said: “These regulations are binding on everyone who preaches in our mosques, if you accept them then all is well, otherwise, we will ask the committee to change you, or we will dissolve the committee and form a new committee that will change the imam”. Brother Mohammed Abdel Rahman replied: “All this talk is only helping the oppressors in their injustice and the secularization of the mosques, the houses of Allah, which must be the platforms to create the awareness which revives the Ummah.” This spy went on to call one of the members of the security agencies, who took Brother Mohammed to one of the cellars of the Security and Intelligence Agency, where they questioned him, and then asked him to return the following day. When he returned to them the next day, after a long debate about the regime, and the issue of dissent that was clearly explained by Imam Mohammad, however, the servants of the oppressors, rather the oppressors, do not understand words and insisted that he should go back and return to them the next day. When Doctor Mohammad refused, they beat him, then their senior came and said to him, “We will release you but with two conditions, the first is that you will never stand at the Minbar (pulpit), and the second is to come tomorrow at 11 am.” Brother Mohammed replied: “I promised Allah who imposed speaking the Truth and ordered it…… do I come after that to promise you?!”
In light of this disgraceful reality of the Director of Dawah and the Security and Intelligence Service in locality of Jabal Awliya, we in Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Sudan emphasize the following:
First: It is truly regrettable that those who oppose Allah, His Messenger and the believers serve in dawah and guidance, and then help the oppressors and the corrupt, and work to spy on the pulpit of the Prophet on the imams and the preachers of goodness, and hand them over to the agencies of repression, injustice and terrorism. We say to this spy and his ilk that Allah gives time but He does not neglect. وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنْقَلَبٍ يَنْقَلِبُونَ “And those who have wronged are going to know to what [kind of] return they will be returned.” ]Ash-Shu’ara: 227[.
Secondly: The agencies that help the oppressor in his injustice, and the defiant in his disobedience, and even strike the imams who teach people goodness, we warn them against the consequences of their deeds, and that Allah Almighty will bring them on the Day of Judgment with the oppressors, because they and their spy (the director of Dawah) are the oppressors, and not only the servants of the oppressors. It was narrated that Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal when he was imprisoned during the Mihna (the ordeal) of the createdness of the Quran. The warden asked him about the Hadiths that were received about the servants of the oppressors, and he told him the correct hadiths. The jailer then asked him if he was one of the servants of the oppressors? Imam Ahmad said to him, “No, you are not one of the servants of the oppressors, but the servants of the oppressors, are those who sew his gown, and cook him his food, but you are one of the oppressors themselves”.
Thirdly: Hizb ut Tahrir and its Shabab have set out to say the truth, not fearing for the sake of Allah (swt) the blame of any blamers, from the pulpits or others, and deem what they encounter from the oppressors a test and trial, as the imams and former preachers were tested, and their example in that is the beloved Muhammad ﷺ and his noble companions, until they meet Allah (swt) on that or Allah grants us with a real change that removes oppression and injustice, and restores the rule of Islam, the Khilafah Rashidah (righteous Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood.
وَاللَّهُ غَالِبٌ عَلَى أَمْرِهِ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لا يَعْلَمُونَ
