The problem of drinking water in the city of Al Qadarif [El Gedaref] is the problem of the failure of the defunct regime to solve it. When the crisis worsened this year, at the beginning of the summer, people came out in protests demanding the provision of water in most neighborhoods of the city, most recent of which was on 06 Ramadan 1440 AH, where they obstructed a group of owners of donkey-drawn carts who sell water at high price, so a dispute took place between a woman and one of the owners of these carts, led to the death of the woman, which was the cause of a tribal clash between Bani Amer tribe and Nuba tribe. Despite the intervention of the security services, but things have worsened, as the death toll by the following morning was six people on both sides, and a number of houses were burned down, in addition to a large number of injured people.
What happened would not have occurred if there had been a state of guardianship that takes care of the affairs of the people. Water is the lifeblood, rather it is life. Allah (swt) says: وَجَعَلْنَا مِنَ الْمَاءِ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ حَيٍّ أَفَلا يُؤْمِنُونَ “and We made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe?” [Al-Anbiya: 30[. It is the duty of the State to provide water to all people, but because the state under these inferior man-made systems do not take care of people’s affairs, but their concern is collecting money from people unlawfully, people end up fighting over water. The former regime has been tickling people’s feelings that it will treat the water problem in Al Qadarif but without doing so for decades, for it is a liar. And the current rulers deal with people with the mentality of the greedy merchant itself, who robs people, so the prestige of the state fell, and people are looking to take the rights with their own hands.
The problems of the people in Al Qadarif or in others, will not be solved except by the establishment of the state of care, the Khilafah Rashidah State (rightly guided Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood, whose first concern is to provide a dignified life for its the people by being responsible over them before Allah on the Day of Resurrection; the Khilafah State will implement in the parish the rulings of Islam with mercy, justice and care.
O our people in Al Qadarif in general, and our people from the tribes of Nuba and Bani Amer in particular, you are Muslims, and it is impermissible for you to shed your blood, and be servants of Allah brothers, and work with the workers for the state of guardianship; the Khilafah Rashidah State on the method of the Prophethood.
