Praise be to Allah, who commanded us to be His سبحانه وتعالى supporters, to be just, and to be witnesses to mankind … and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, “our leader forever,” and peace be upon his family and companions and His ﷺ followers:
O people of Syria, you have Allah (for your aid), O people of Aleppo, you have Allah (for your aid), O steadfast Mujahideen in the abode of Islam, you have Allah (for your aid), Allah is your and our supporter, He is the best Mawla (supporter) and best Nasir (grants victory).
O People of Ash-Sham… Dear beloved … O the ones gripping on hot coals, you were let down by those who are near and conspired upon by those who are far. Your screams and wailing over your wounds have reached the corners of the earth … and your cries for help became louder, yet there is no supporter and no one has answered… You called the Muslim armies but they did not help although they are capable of it, and some of them even plotted against you and left you to confront the most powerful weapons and aircrafts alone, as they did with your vulnerable brothers before. This is the state of our Ummah since the destruction of the Khilafah. After it was the formidable army striking fear in the hearts of the enemy … If a woman cried for help, the army legions of believers would respond… and if the dignity of Muslims was disparaged, the earth would shake under the feet of the disbelievers. The place of ascension of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ has been crying out for help to the Ummah of Islam for decades and decades, but there was no one to answer, and Hizb ut Tahrir has been working to mobilize the men for years and years. This calamity has ravaged Muslims everywhere; in Burma, Kashmir and Afghanistan, and your neighbour Iraq that has been spilling blood and body parts … and before that there was Chechnya and Bosnia. Pain, wounds, killings, displacement, and rape of believing women, crimes that shake the heavens, but did not yet move the chivalry and dignity in the armies of the Ummah.
Do not allow this disappointment drive you into despair from the Mercy of Allah. Have trust in Allah’s promise and hold fast to His rope, for your victory is in Allah’s hands alone and not in the hands of America or Russia, or the United Nations, so support Allah and He will support you and will make your feet stand firm.
O people of Ash-Sham the disbelievers (Kuffar) are your enemies. There is no difference between Russia and America. They are supporters of one another.
Allah سبحانه وتعالى says:
وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءُ بَعْضٍ إِلَّا تَفْعَلُوهُ تَكُنْ فِتْنَةٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَفَسَادٌ كَبِيرٌ
“And those who disbelieved are allies of one another. If you do not do so, there will be fitnah on earth and great corruption”
And all the initiatives are to abort your revolution, or to divert it, or to plot against its faithful men … So do not turn to America or to the Security Council, they are the enemy beware of them, may Allah سبحانه وتعالى destroy them, how they are deluded. And do not be fooled by the supporters of the West and their adherents and followers; the criminal Muslim rulers, and beware of the political dirty money that divided your community and confused your goals, and beware of the sedition of internal fighting, in it is the loss of your lives and message, and listen to your brothers in Hizb ut Tahrir, it is your true adviser and a leader that does not lie to its people.
O our people in Ash-Sham … O righteous ones in Aleppo Al-Shahba’ (of white soil)
We address you from Bait ul Maqdis … from the Israa wal Mi’raj of the Messenger of Allah, we call upon you … and from Al-Aqsa Mosque we cry for your help … and we say to you: Your way out is by holding on tightly to the Deen of Allah سبحانه وتعالى. Only Allah can remove this calamity, it is only Allah who can bring the Victory… Do not turn to the West and its projects … reject the supporters of Satan and advocates of the gates of hell … reject all types of agents … reject all of the Kaffir’s projects with all different backgrounds … and you have in Palestine and Al-Aqsa Mosque a lesson and example. So hold tight to the firm rope of Allah alone and adhere to the fundamentals of your revolution: to topple the regime, and cut off the head of the snake in Damascus, and liberate from all subordination, and establish the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood.
O People of Ash-Sham
Al-Aqsa is blowing in your direction the resolution of the righteous truthful ones (Sidiqeen), Martyrs, and Mujahideen, because it has a date with you (awaits you) … it is awaiting your battalions … it is waiting for the date with the Khilafah on the method of Prophethood, so do not miss the date.
So unify on the support of Allah’s Deen and rally around the Khilafah project and those seeking to establish it, and support Allah, and He will grant you victory.
إِن يَنصُرْكُمُ اللّهُ فَلاَ غَالِبَ لَكُمْ وَإِن يَخْذُلْكُمْ فَمَن ذَا الَّذِي يَنصُرُكُم مِّن بَعْدِهِ وَعَلَى اللّهِ فَلْيَتَوَكِّلِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ
“If Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you; but if He should forsake you, who is there that can aid you after Him? And upon Allah let the believers rely”
Allah is with you and will not deprive you of rewards for your deeds.
O Allah, grant victory to our brothers in Ash-Sham, and return the plots of the Kuffar back against them, O Allah make the Khilafah upon the method of Prophethood be the conclusion of their revolution, and unite us with them behind the Amir of the believers (Khaleefah) in prayer in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the basin of the Prophet ﷺ on the day of Judgment, and Praise be to Allah.
Hizb ut Tahrir, The Blessed Land-Palestine
