The Jordanian State Security Court Sentences Mr. Hamza Mohammed Bani Issa to Three Years Imprisonment Unjustly, Spitefully and Averting People from the Path of Allah

The repressive security and judicial apparatuses in Jordan continues its rabid campaign on Hizb ut Tahrir and its members, on Wednesday 7/3/2018, where the State Security Court issued its unjust verdict on Hamza Mohammed Bani Issa, a member of Hizb ut Tahrir, where he was unjustly, spitefully and falsely sentenced to three years in prison for inciting against the government and belonging to an illegal association (Hizb ut Tahrir), who has been detained since 1/1/2017.

We, Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Jordan, towards this injustice and oppression against the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir, and the tyranny they are subjected to through the regime’s security services and the State Security Court, we say to the regime and those who represent it in these institutions that practice injustice and tyranny against Hizb ut Tahrir and its Shabab and shove them in prisons and detention centers, in blind obedience to a regime that does not judge by what Allah has revealed and leads people to destruction and humiliation by its alliance with the enemies of the Ummah against its interests and Dean. They also subdue the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir simply because they say our Lord is Allah, call for the resumption of the Islamic way of life, enjoin what is good and forbid the evil, account the regime on the basis of Islam as Allah and His Messenger ﷺ commanded, and work to ensure that the provisions of Islam are applied in the reality of Muslims’ lives in compliance and abidance to the command of their Lord Almighty:

وَأَنِ احْكُم بَيْنَهُم بِمَآ أَنزَلَ اللّهُ

“And judge, [O Muhammad], between them by what Allah has revealed”

(Al-Ma’ida: 49)

We say to them what the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: «إِنَّ اللهَ لَيُمْلِي لِلظَّالِمِ حَتَّى إِذَا أَخَذَهُ لَمْ يُفْلِتْهُ» “Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, grants respite to the oppressor. But when He lays Hand upon him, He does not then let him off.”

Hizb ut Tahrir is a legitimate party by the legitimate texts, rather, it works to achieve a legitimate obligation (Fardh) that cannot be abandoned. It is a political party whose ideology is Islam and was established in compliance with the command of Allah (swt):

وَلْتَكُن مِّنكُمْ أُمَّةٌ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى الْخَيْرِ وَيَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ

“And let there be [arising] from you a nation inviting to [all that is] good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, and those will be the successful.”

(Al-i-Imran: 104)

It bears in mind, relying on Allah (swt), to achieve its goal, defying all obstacles and difficulties, and not caring of the injustice of the oppressors, nor dissuaded by the hatred of the spiteful. It carries out this with the intellectual political work and does not involve itself in any material act of violence, in adherence to the method of the Prophet ﷺ. Thus, there is no consideration, value or weight for any law that describes Hizb ut Tahrir as an illegal organization based on the man-made laws that are formulated and enacted by the regime to protect the enemies of the Ummah, the colonists Kuffar, and as a war against Islam and Muslims, to prevent what it fears and expects to happen, the Khilafah Rashidah State (righteous Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood. As for the charge of incitement to undermine the ruling system, it is a charge that is intended by it to tighten the penalty on the Islamic Dawah carriers from the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir, which is too ridiculous to respond to, for it is a charge against the regime itself on its war on Islam, as how the call for the application of the provisions of Islam advocated by Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir, is an incitement to undermine the ruling system, if the political system does not want Islam, its provisions and the state that applies all the provisions of Islam?!

O Muslims:

It is a Shar’i duty in your necks to work to lift the injustice on the detainees, your brothers in Deen and blood, who proclaim the Truth from the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir, who their number reached eleven members in the intelligence, detention and prison’s cells. They are subjected to great injustice, imprisonment, arrest and intimidation, and unfair trials and sentences after the sanctity of their homes have been violated and their children and women were horrified. Is it not time for you to move to lift the injustice from them and take on the hands of the oppressor and make him follow the Truth, to rescue yourselves from the threat of your Lord?! Your Prophet Muhammad ﷺ says:

«وَاللَّه لَتَأْمُرُنَّ بالْمعْرُوفِ، وَلَتَنْهوُنَّ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ، ولَتَأْخُذُنَّ عَلَى يَدِ الظَّالِمِ، ولَتَأْطِرُنَّهُ عَلَى الْحَقِّ أَطْراً، ولَتقْصُرُنَّهُ عَلَى الْحَقِّ قَصْراً، أَوْ لَيَضْرِبَنَّ اللَّه بقُلُوبِ بَعْضِكُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ، ثُمَّ لَيَلْعَنكُمْ كَمَا لَعَنَهُمْ»

“Nay, by Allah, you either enjoin good and forbid evil and catch hold of the hand of the oppressor and make him follow and restrict him to what is just, or, Allah will involve the hearts of some of you with the hearts of others and will curse you as He had cursed them.”

And praise to Allah Almighty who said:

فَلَمَّا نَسُواْ مَا ذُكِّرُواْ بِهِ أَنجَيْنَا الَّذِينَ يَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ السُّوءِ وَأَخَذْنَا الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُواْ بِعَذَابٍ بَئِيسٍ بِمَا كَانُواْ يَفْسُقُونَ

“And when they forgot that by which they had been reminded, We saved those who had forbidden evil and seized those who wronged, with a wretched punishment, because they were defiantly disobeying.”

(Al-A’raf: 165)
