The Speech of the Official Spokesman of Hizb ut Tahrir in Wilayah Sudan in the Opening of the Hizb Office in Al-Abyad City

All praise be to Allah (swt), the Supporter of the believers, the Humiliator of the disbelievers and the hypocrites. And prayers, and peace be upon him; who was sent as of mercy to the worlds, the Imam of the pious, and the leader of those with the radiant faces … Our master, our prophet and our beloved Mohammed bin Abdullah, and upon his family and companions and those who follow his guidance…

O honorable gathering, Assalamu Alaikum wa RahmatuAllahu wa Barakatuhu, may Allah accept from us our fasting, Qiyam and good deeds.

Kordofan has been one of the beacons of Islam throughout the ages and times, its people loved Islam and established the kingdoms based on it, so there were kingdoms of Al-Musbi’aat, Teqali and others, which supported Al-Mahdi when he sought their support on the basis of Islam, hence were the famous Battle of Shaykan… and other heroic deeds in Kordofan …

And today Arus al-Rimal; in Al-Abyad is embracing, Dawah carriers from the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir, who were truthful to its people in speech and action, so there was an interaction as good as the people of Kordofan, the protectors of Islam, and this office which we meet in today was a fruit of this interaction.  And we ask Allah the Most High the Competent to make it  be a radiating center for the awareness on Islam and its state, and a beacon of enlightened thought that elevates the Ummah to the leadership of the world as it was in the past, the best Ummah that have been raised up for mankind, and to be the starting point for carrying the call to resume the Islamic way life by establishing the Khilafah (Caliphate) which is the obligation from our Lord, the source of our glory and the liberator of our land from the abomination of the Jewish entity and their likes of the disbelievers.

The Khilafah (Caliphate) that we seek its establishment between the Ummah and with it is not only the best system, but also the obligation of our Lord who says:

وَأَنِ احْكُمْ بَيْنَهُمْ بِمَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ وَلا تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ وَاحْذَرْهُمْ أَنْ يَفْتِنُوكَ عَنْ بَعْضِ مَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ إِلَيْكَ فَإِنْ تَوَلَّوْا فَاعْلَمْ أَنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ أَنْ يُصِيبَهُمْ بِبَعْضِ ذُنُوبِهِمْ وَإِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِنَ النَّاسِ لَفَاسِقُونَ

“And judge, [O Muhammad], between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations and beware of them, lest they tempt you away from some of what Allah has revealed to you. And if they turn away – then know that Allah only intends to afflict them with some of their [own] sins. And indeed, many among the people are defiantly disobedient.”

(Al-Maida: 49)

The beloved Prophet ﷺ has indicated that this rule is going to be Khilafah after him, he said: «كَانَتْ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ تَسُوسُهُمْ الْأَنْبِيَاءُ كُلَّمَا هَلَكَ نَبِيٌّ خَلَفَهُ نَبِيٌّ وَإِنَّهُ لا نَبِيَّ بَعْدِي وَسَتَكُونُ خُلَفَاءُ تَكْثُرُ» قَالُوا: فَمَا تَأْمُرُنَا؟ قَالَ: «فُوا بِبَيْعَةِ الْأَوَّلِ فَالْأَوَّلِ وَأَعْطُوهُمْ حَقَّهُمْ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ سَائِلُهُمْ عَمَّا اسْتَرْعَاهُمْ» “Bani Israel were ruled by their Prophets. When one died, there would follow another. There will be no Prophet after me, only Khulafaa’.’ They asked Rasulallah, ‘What should we do?’ He said ‘Give them bay’ah, one after the other, and give them their rights, because Allah will ask them about responsibility.” (Narrated by Muslim)

The Ummah lived throughout its ages under a Caliph and a Khilafah, until the colonial Kaffir in collaboration with the traitors of the Arabs and Turks determined to destroy the entity of Islam which was gathering the Muslims, thus, the Ummah divided and lost its honor and dignity. The Ummah became fragmented and scattered in the name of patriotism, the brotherhood of Islam became extinct, and we became governed by other than what Allah has revealed in republics, kingdoms, emirates, and other names of which Allah had not sent down any authority.  An abnormal situation that does not resemble the Ummah nor does it resemble it. In this dreadful reality, Hizb ut Tahrir emerged to remind the people of the source of their glory; the great Islam, under the shadows of the second righteous Khilafah State on the method of the Prophethood, which the master of the messengers gave the glad tiding of its return. Where he ﷺ said in the hadeeth narrated by Imam Ahmad, «تَكُونُ النُّبُوَّةُ فِيكُمْ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلافَةٌ عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ النُّبُوَّةِ فَتَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ مُلْكًا عَاضًّا فَيَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ يَكُونَ ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ مُلْكًا جَبْرِيَّةً فَتَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلافَةً عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ النُّبُوَّةِ». “Prophethood will last with you for as long as Allah wants it to last. Then there will be Khilafah according to the Method of Prophethood, and things will be as Allah wishes them to be. Then Allah will end it if He wishes to end it. Then there will be hereditary rule, and things will be as Allah wishes them to be. Then Allah will end it if He wishes to end it. Then there will be an oppressive rule, and things will be as Allah wishes them to be. Then Allah will end it if He wishes to end it. Then there will be a Khilafah according to the method of Prophethood.”

We call upon all Muslims in all their intellectual, Dawah and political schools to work to gather the Ummah, which can only gather under the banner of the Messenger of Allah, the Rayah of Al-‘Uqaab, the Rayah of ‘Laa Ilaaha Illallah Muhammad Rasoolullah. And this cannot be without establishing it; Khilafah Rashidah on the method of the Prophethood, by which Muslims will be cherished and the disbelievers will be humiliated. And we see that these days are its days, and that the present time is its time, so be among its men and the carriers of its banners, so you could attain tranquil living in this World, and the satisfaction of Allah is greater in the Gardens of Pleasure in the Hereafter.

Wassalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuh
