The Fatwa Index is a War on Islam and an Adoption of the Viewpoint of its Enemies

Under this title, “The Fatwa Index breaks into the closed rooms of terrorists… Telegram the organizations’ weapon more dangerous than the missiles”, the Fatwa Index by Egypt’s Dar al-Ifta reported in its statement published on Dar al-Ifta’s website on 27/8/2019, confirming that it is part of the war on Islam and that it has adopted the Western viewpoint of the definition of terrorism and its attachment to Islam and those who work to restore its state. The Index forgot that the death planes that rain the people of ash-Sham with explosives are led by the Russians, and that the planes of Assad, the agent of America, are the ones that bombard the people of ash-Sham with chemical weapons, and it did not classify their act as terrorism despite them killing and burning children, women and unarmed elders!! Their killers did not need WhatsApp or Telegram to transfer their killing plans, yet the Index did not break into their closed or even open rooms in which the conspiracy against the Ummah is taking place to slaughter it alive openly in broad daylight, as their cunning is no longer hidden to anyone. Among what the Index has mentioned, after its inventory of the groups it described as terrorist, all of which are armed groups pursuing the armed struggle as a way of change, and included with them Hizb ut Tahrir, which does not adopt armed struggle or material action as a method of change and does not see it as a way of establishing the state of Islam. The Index then mentioned that the use of the Telegram application by members of Hizb ut Tahrir has declined after deleting many channels of the Hizb and of its supporters. Whereas those channels that continue to run so far, have focused on urging young people to use their minds as an attempt to win their loyalty to the Hizb and to believe in its extremist ideas. Some channels have resorted to questioning Muslims in their scholars and rulers to destroy their religious values ​​and their loyalty to their country. Examples of Hizb ut Tahrir channels through the application are: (Supporters of Hizb ut Tahrir in Damascus and its Countryside – Al-Raya Newspaper – Students of Dawah Knowledge – The Reserved Revolution… etc)

From what the Index mentioned and the declared state of war on Hizb ut Tahrir and the attempt to prevent it from addressing the Ummah and to obscure it and its actions. It is evident that Hizb ut Tahrir’s ideas and words are stronger than bullets and more powerful than the weapons of other movements and organizations, which led those who are in charge of the Index to describe them as extremist ideas without explicitly discussing them, or carry out genuine intellectual discussion with its holders, because they are aware of the fact that Hizb ut Tahrir has pure Islamic ideas that restore clarity and purity to Islam and remove from its creed all the malice that has been attached to it from the West’s ideas and its rotten capitalism.

It would have been better for you, O you who are in charge of the Fatwa Index, to carry these ideas and guide people to them, not to describe them as extremist ideas as described by the enemies of the Ummah who are fighting Hizb ut Tahrir and what it carries and estranging it from the Ummah which it seeks to liberate from the subordination of the Kaffir colonial West, instead of your recommendation to tighten censorship and prevent and block what may be an outlet or a means of delivering some ideas to the Ummah, at a time when the West controls all media and harnesses it in its war on Islam; your religion, which you embrace and upon which you will be held accountable to your Lord on the day you meet Him. So how are you going answer Him (swt) if He asks you why you were waging a war on your Deen and those working to establish His state?! Why were you in one trench with your enemy, fighting against those who want to support your Deen? You are those responsible, so prepare your answer, for the Day of the Accountability is near, and the masters and even those above them will not benefit you, rather they will be quick to disassociate themselves from you.

﴿إِذْ تَبَرَّأَ الَّذِينَ اتُّبِعُواْ مِنَ الَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُواْ وَرَأَوُاْ الْعَذَابَ وَتَقَطَّعَتْ بِهِمُ الأَسْبَابُ

“[And they should consider that] when those who have been followed disassociate themselves from those who followed [them], and they [all] see the punishment, and cut off from them are the ties [of relationship]”
[Al-Baqara: 166].

And know, O who oversee the Index, that you and your masters are destined to ruin. And that the idea of ​​Islam and its application in its state, the Khilafah Rashidah (rightly guided Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood, which is embodied in the Shabab of Hizb utTahrir, does not die, is not arrested, nor is prevented by walls or concealed by a blackout, an idea that its time has come, and its establishment is inevitable, by the permission of Allah (swt),no matter how hard you and your masters try to prevent it. They will exhaust all their energies in trying to prevent its establishment and its empowerment until its mere establishment becomes a collapse of the West and its capitalism altogether;this is imminent, with Allah’s permission; we see it around the corner, so, what an attainment for the workers and supporters; the caravan is moving and not hurt by the loser who is left behind.

O people of the Kinanah, the people, the army and the people of power and influence! What Hizb ut Tahrir carries to you is a pure, clear and brilliant Islam, in which only is your salvation and the salvation of your country from the crises and problems that it suffers. So, look at what it offers to you and weigh it with the scale of Islam, if it agrees with it, then accept it, hold onto it and support it, the support of yesteryear’s supporters (Al-Ansar), a support that establishes the state that upholds Islam and its people. And if it violates Islam, then leave it and say about it what you wish. And know that your Ummah needs what Hizb ut Tahrir holds together with the siding of the sincere people from the sons of the Ummah in the armies with it and their support for this project until the establishment of the state that renews the legacy of the rightly guided Caliphs, the state of justice, dignity and mercy, the Khilafah Rashidah on the method of the Prophethood. O Allah hastenit and the people of its victory; and make Egypt its capital and make us from its soldiers and witnesses.

﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اسْتَجِيبُواْ لِلّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُم لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ

“O you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life. And know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart and that to Him you will be gathered”
[Al-Anfal: 24].
