Media Release

The government has recently announced measures designed to bolster already overreaching anti-terror laws. The appointment of a National Counter Terrorism Coordinator and a ministerial position, targeting of school children and legislation that potentially removes citizenship are some of the introduced and proposed changes. Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia says:

 

1) Such measures gloss over the obvious – Western foreign policy is the root cause of legitimate Muslim grievances. Strengthening anti-terror laws serves to entrench an arrogant attitude of denial and of causing the problem and then shifting the blame, only to demand Muslims accept collective responsibility.

 

2) Anti-terror legislation is specific to Muslims in what is now plainly a two-tiered legal system that targets a section of society and treats them as a national security concern. Discrimination has been drafted into law and the government threatens to walk in the footsteps of regimes that have instituted marginalisation followed by wholesale state oppression.

 

3) The government has deemed that Muslims may have their citizenship revoked, effectively allowing free reign to dispose of any concept of rights and accountability when politically expedient. The government has awarded itself the ultimate "get out of gaol free" card.

 

4) In a deplorable move, the government now seeks to attack the most vulnerable of the Muslim community – its children. To have Muslim children viewed through the lens of terror marks a new low, as suspicion and racism would be rubber stamped within the education system.

 

5) It is now clearer than ever that the government has Islam itself in its sights and seeks to beat the Muslim community into submission. Pretences of "moderate" and "extreme" have only ever been smokescreens veiling the true evil intent of the government. It seeks to bulldoze the Muslim community with the anti-terror laws battering ram.

 

6) The reason the Muslims are being targeted is due to the sublimity of their Islam and adherence to its values that lead to accounting of injustice. The government seeks to silence the Muslim community's staunch opposition to state harassment, and in the face of attempted intimidation the principled voice of the community must echo ever louder.

The Establishment of the Khilafah is Both an Obligation and a Necessity of Our Time

Hizb ut-Tahrir in the Wilayah of Pakistan held demonstrations across Pakistan in remembrance of the Fall of the Khilafah. Participants held banners and placards declaring “Khilafah is the Shield of the Muslims” and “O Pakistan Armed Forces! Mobilize Now, Liberate Palestine”.

 

On 28th Rajab 1342 Hijri, corresponding to 3rd March 1924 CE, Muslims lost their Khilafah because of the conspiracy of the British and French colonialists, in collaboration with Arab and Turk traitors, including Mustafa Kamal. After the fall of the Khilafah, the Muslim Lands were carved to pieces on the basis of ethnicity and language and their lands were occupied, including the filthy Jewish occupation of the blessed lands of Masjid Al-Aqsa, the first Qibla in Islam and site of the Isra’a and Miraaj of RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم. The destruction of the Khilafah was a great loss for the Muslims, because they were left without an authority to protect the interests of Islam and Muslims, regionally or internationally. The Muslims became like homeless orphans, exposed to immense suffering. The division of Muslims, the implementation of the capitalist system over them and the rule of agents over them encouraged the Kuffar to an extent that they began the open slaughter of Muslims, mocking the commands of Islam insulting RasulAllah صلى الله عليه وسلم all over the world. However, during the era of the Khilafah, the Kuffar never dared to undertake such lowly actions because whenever they did so, the Khilafah’s armed forces were mobilized to teach them a resounding lesson that they could not forget for centuries.

The relentless tragedies and calamities due to the absence of the Khilafah have forced Muslims to reach the conclusion that our survival is in our unification as a single Islamic state. Over six decades of Hizb ut-Tahrir’s efforts have clarified to the Ummah that Islam obliges the unification of Muslims through the Khilafah. Today the call for the Khilafah has reached every corner of the Muslim World, with a strong and firm footing. The small distance that is left must be covered by the sincere officers of the Muslim armed forces to come forward and grant the Nussrah for the return of Islam as a state and rule, just as the Ansar of Madinah did when they extended their Nusrrah to the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم for the establishment of first Islamic State.

Hizb ut-Tahrir reminds from the sincere officers of Pakistan’s armed forces that it is their Islamic duty to provide Nussrah for the return of the Khilafah on the method of the Prophethood, so that a shield will be established by which Muslims will be unified, their occupied lands will be liberated and the light of Islam will be carried to all of humankind through Dawah and Jihad.

In Remembrance of the 94th Anniversary of the Destruction of the Blessed Khilafah

Hizb ut-Tahrir organized public talks in front of several mosques across Dhaka, Chittagong and Sylhet after Jummah prayers today to commemorate the destruction of the Khilafah state on the 28th of Rajab 1342 Hijri (3rd March, 1924 CE) by the hateful Mustafa Kemal in collaboration with the malicious West. The speakers reminded the audience that it was the very day after which the Muslims became orphans and got into the abysmal hole of oppression and misery that are being enforced upon them ruthlessly. By dividing the Khilafah into more than fifty weak and insignificant states, the Western powers had installed treacherous rulers therein who collaborated in every excess against the Ummah and kept distracting them from demanding the true solution, that is, Khilafah.

 

The people are being constantly indoctrinated into thinking that lack of education, good governance and democracy etc are the causes of underdevelopment of the Muslim world, whereas by now it is as plain as day that all our so-called underdevelopments are the consequences of the demolition of the Khilafah. During the more than 1300-year tenure of the Khilafah, never have we witnessed such widespread poverty, hunger, illiteracy and malnutrition as today, count of which are escalating every day. And having fallen from being the leading state to some miserable client statelets, today we witness that the blood and honour of the Muslims have become the cheapest commodity of the earth with the Kuffar’s onslaught against the Ummah ever increasing. Yet the agent rulers are desperately trying in cahoots with the pseudo-intellectuals to keep the Muslims distant from the Khilafah by maintaining a façade of democracy. Furthermore, the poisonous flames of nationalism are being fanned on purpose in order to keep us divided and mired in unending internal conflicts to delay the return of the promised Khilafah.

The speakers then told the audience that Hasina-Khaleda regimes are also carrying the same legacy of treachery against Islam and the Muslims. Since the birth of this nation, all these regimes have been the eyes and ears of their colonial masters; they rush to compete with one another only to secure their thrones by maintaining the geo-political interests of their masters in this region. Also they spread lies and deceitful ideas about Islam and secular democracy in order to keep the Ummah ignorant of the reality that Islam and secular Kufr can never coexist. But the hardest resistance these agents are now facing is the resilience of the sincere workers of Hizb ut-Tahrir who never let the Muslims get distracted away from this struggle between Islam and Kufr. Bearing the risk of imprisonment and torture, our members and activists have always kept the idea of Khilafah alive and the impact of the loss of it. They are always at the forefront to expose the treacherous rulers for their crime against Islam and the Ummah. In the end, the speakers called upon the Ummah to abandon the agent and criminal rulers like Hasina, and to redouble their efforts to uproot the evil secular democracy from this land and re-establish the Khilafah state to save themselves from the sin of dying a death of Jahiliyyah.

«مَنْ مَاتَ وَلَيْسَ فِي عُنُقِهِ بَيْعَةٌ مَاتَ مَيْتَةً جَاهِلِيَّةً»

“And whoever dies without having an oath of allegiance (Bay’ah) on his neck he would die the death of Jahiliyyah.” (Sahih Muslim)

90 years of pain and humiliation,
Witnessing Al Quds in Christian hands
The Muslims dreamed of peace and liberation,
For Jerusalem, the heart of Muslim lands

The home of our father Ibrahim,
The noble rasul’s ascension to ar-Rahim,
The first qibla of al muslimeen,
The holy land cited in al Quran al Karim

“How blessed is Al Sham!” peace be upon him said
Over which the wings of Allah’s angels spread
There is not a single inch in Al Quds, Jeru-salem
Where a prophet did not pray or an angel did not stand

Where is the sense of honour of the Muslimeen?
Where is the pride and zeal of the Mu’mineen?
A brave man of mission, devout servant of the deen
Called out to men – Kurdish, Turkish and ‘Arabiyyeen.

The language of nationalism, he did not understand,
The only language he understood was that of Islam
For 18 years he persisted and patiently planned
To unite the ummah’s hearts as one strong band

“This is the moment to cast off laziness”
He summoned, all men from far and near
Be confident and sure with no drop of vagueness
In Allah’s help, that’ll come like a flying spear

A father deeply attached to his family and sons,
Chose a life of sweat and toil
He renounced all worldly temptations,
And to Allah he kept most loyal

As the leader of Egypt and Damascus,
On his people he kindly spent
Winning the hearts of many,
While he lived in a humble tent

The Crusaders heard of his successful rule,
And were convinced he’d soon overtake them
Indeed, he was chosen as Allah’s tool
Promising his next goal to be Jeru-salem.

And the other Muslim rulers of his time said,
“Oh Salahuddin, we’ll give you money, turn back”
To preserve their kingdoms, from Jihad they fled
But to preserve this Ummah, he was sure to attack

They unleashed Reginald,
A great arch enemy of Islam;
A cruel and heartless man
He attacked a Muslim caravan
Broke the truce and spread fitna in the land

He threatened to bring the ka’bah to the ground,
Insulted and disrespected our rasul
Salahuddin raised his sword and sincerely vowed
To kill Reginald, the wretched fool!

Such was his deep love for rasul Allah,
Sallahu ‘alayhi wassalam

~~~~

1187, the famous Battle of Hattin
Salahuddin brought forth the mujahideen
The Franks and allies that fought against him;
Were crushed, their morale further sinking

Their great cross captured, a heavy blow
Their morale sunk lower and lower than low

In desperation, the enemy decided for safety
And handed Jerusalem over to Salahuddin
In submission, they pleaded for his mercy
Assuming they’d be butchered on the scene

The Muslims dismounted and to Allah they prostrated
In thanks, they wept from joy
Rajab brought another cause to be celebrated
A victory for the ummah to enjoy

Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
La ilaha illallah
The joyful shouts reached to the sky
‘Ulama joined from surrounding lands
To raise Islam’s flag, most high

Imagine, just imagine;
The first friday khutba at Al Aqsa
After almost a century of occupation
Qadi Muhi’aldin assembled the minbar,
Thanking Allah with full appreciation;

“Slaves of Allah!
What a great favour it is
To be the army that conquered Alquds.
Preserve this gift that Allah granted you
Protect it with piety and shukr.

Beware of retreating and continue in Jihad
What a victory of victories it is!
Not from your swords, nor your power
But Allah, glory and might is His!”


The Muslims rejoiced, now living under Islam
Lives, blood and honour protected with salaam
A testimony of faith to every scholar and nobleman,
Strength regained; ruling by Al Quran

Order was kept in every street,
The people of the book he would kindly treat,
What a far cry from when the crusaders did defeat,
In 1099 where they tortured, burnt and brutally beat
Defenceless Muslims forced to die, nothing to eat
A stark stark contrast did the Christians meet

“I will sail on the sea far to its lands and waters
Until there shall not remain any belying
kaffir sons or daughters
...or I will die, I will die trying.”

Determination,
Dedication,
Inspiration,

This was Salahuddin; the legend of Islam
Feared by many, respected by all
What is it that he and his soldiers had?
An ideological edge, unity and iman
Love for the shahada and pleasure of Allah
Sincerity, hoping to be martyred for Islam

You might be thinking,
What a nice story this is
But how are we to solve today’s miseries?

You see, the Muslim world
Is forever waiting
For another Salahuddin
To come rescuing

Do you see the qualities
That this servant of Allah had?
Raise your sons and daughters
To be united in times, good or bad

Make your goals and visions, huge and grand
Don’t rest until under Allah’s shade you stand

So ya Muslimeen, don’t live off this legacy,
But aspire and live a similar victory!

Umm Yusuf
