Nations, people and societies have considered that the real revolution on the existing regimes means a radical change in all aspects of life, in the systems of government, economy and society, in the system of values, ideas, laws and ethics, in the methods of dealing with facts and states and events, and to sweep it all, and bring all new systems. Allah (swt) says: إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّى يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنْفُسِهِم “Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.” [Ar-Ra’d: 11]
No one differs in the description of the reality of the regime that the people revolted against, in terms of being a secular system associated to the Kafir West, based on weak basis of nationalism and patriotism ideas under the false slogans of opposition and resistance, and imposing its man-made laws on the people with iron and fire, forming one of the pillars of control of the unjust international community on this blessed spot of the Muslim lands.
Based on the above, the real revolution against the regime is not only by the revolution on its symbols and its structures and repressive institutions of military and security, but it must be a comprehensive revolution on all of its values, ethics, ideas and laws, and on what this regime emanated from: the hostile international community and their basis of International false Capitalist laws.
This was the case when the revolution declared its religiousness by its departure from the mosques, calling out with its loudest voice: “It is for Allah, it is for Allah”, invoking its Lord, saying, “O Allah, we have no one but you”, with decided values, thoughts, laws and ethics when it called out: “Our eternal leader is our master Muhammad”. The revolution reached its maturity when Islamic banners spread everywhere, and people shouted slogans saying, “The Ummah wants an Islamic Khilafah (caliphate).”
From the very beginning, Hizb ut Tahrir was proclaiming the truth, drawing the straight line next to the crooked line, showing the path they should take and the goal they should adopt if they really wanted their revolution to reach safety, warning of the dangers of the road and the machinations and conspiracies in the midst of the sea from the enemy countries scheming against Islam and Muslims.
But the nights of the seven years proved that the leaders of the factions of the revolution, and the groups of politicians who represented them in international forums, were not worthy of the high prestige that they had acquired when people were not paying attention. Although they led the Mujahideen in fighting the regime on the battle fronts and represented the revolution politically in front of the regime on negotiation tables, but they carried the thought of the regime and the values of the regime, and stole the authority from the people as it was usurped by the regime, and they committed in their relations with the countries hostile to the revolution, as the regime did, which left the revolution in a whirlwind of loss. It will not be saved from this except when it returns to its original goal that it came out to achieve which is to lift injustice from the oppressed by overthrowing the regime and establishing the rule of Islam.
Every revolutionary who wants the truth and have sacrificed for it must remain steadfast on the truth that he has followed. What he has gained from awareness is a great good. The young before the old are aware of the truth of the West and its followers from the rulers. Also they know the truth of the conflict and battle, that it is the battle between the Truth and Falsehood. They are capable to save the revolution from the hands of the meddlers and restore it to its correct direction; by overthrowing the regime and all its symbols, pillars, laws, values, ethics, and its international law. And to replace all of this with the values of Islam, the laws of Islam and the political system that Allah has accepted to the believers, the Khilafah (caliphate) system that Hizb ut Tahrir offers as a project and believes that the salvation of the revolution of Syria and its people, will only be by the adoption of this great project,
…وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ بِنَصْرِ اللَّهِ يَنْصُرُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ
“…And that day the believers will rejoice* In the victory of Allah. He gives victory to whom He wills, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.” [Ar-Rum: 4-5]
