This is an excerpt of a translation from an Arabic leaflet from August 1975 which aimed to provide advice to carriers of da’wah as regards their activism and what some of crucial activities they need to engage are. As important now as it was back then, it considers some of the serious commitments that need to be made in carrying the da’wah to Islam.
The concept of public property, and its opposing category of private property, is well known today, due primarily to the centrality of the latter to liberal and capitalist thought and the former to socialist thought. However, Islam has its own notions of private and public property far removed from the associated ideological frameworks of modernity. Br Uthman Badar writes about the concept of private and public property in Islam, according to the great fuqaha (jurists) of the Hanafi school, illustrating Islam’s unique take on the issue.
Born approximately in 1921, Hajj Sabri Arouri grew up in a religious family. His father was the Imam and khatib of the main local masjid in the town of Yatta in Hebron, Palestine.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and other government ministers yesterday effectively endorsed the blatantly discriminatory, anti-Muslim executive order of US President Donald Trump, which suspends refugee intake and places various restrictions on migrants from Muslim-majority countries. Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia condemns such policies of Trump and the Australian Government’s support thereof, emphasising that:
A feeling of helplessness can sometimes creep into our hearts today when we witness the situation of the ummah. The situation in Syria is a prime example: the powers of the world have gathered together quash a noble uprising that promised much hope for the future. When we look back to history it is apparent that the Ummah has overcome difficult situations that at first glance would look impossible to overcome. One such example is one of the famous battles of our beloved Messenger Muhammad ﷺ, the battle of Ahzab. In this article, we will take a look at the historical context, the events that took place and what lessons we can derive from it all.
Huge numbers of people in Turkey took to the streets these past few weeks, moved by the horrors they’ve seen inflicted upon our ummah in Aleppo (Halep’e, in these photos). Rushing to action, Muslims were seen in many places around the country holding placards, chanting, rallying and giving in charity for their hurting brothers and sisters. In Ankara, Istanbul, and many other cities, many large gatherings were called by the dedicated members of Hizb ut-Tahrir’s Turkey chapter, and with gusto the ummah there answered the call, doing what they could to express that they had not forgotten the Syrian ummah, and to remind us who is responsible. May Allah reward the sincere da’wah carriers and groups in Turkey and bless the ummah in the heart of the last Khilafah.
Every so often the Muslim ummah witnesses the death of tyrants and people of evil. Whether the death of Gaddafi a few years ago, or the recent death of Islam Karimov, the butcher of Uzbekistan, or the death of a number of soldiers of invading or oppressive forces in the Muslim lands, these pieces of news often bring relief and joy, especially to those who have experienced directly their evil and oppression. Some Muslims, however, ask “is this allowed?” or “should we really celebrate the death of anyone”? This brief piece looks at some interesting historical, scholarly and jurisprudential points on this issue, clarifying that not only is this permissible, but that many learned people made a point of thanking Allah and being joyful at the progenitors of evil.
This article looks at the notion that the Ummah is going through suffering, being denied of victory and authority, on account of her sins. We have heard it from the pulpits. We have heard it in this lecture or that conference. Too many times to enumerate. We heard it when Afghanistan was invaded, likewise Iraq, when calamities hit Burma, CAR, Pakistan, Egypt, Syria…now we hear it for Aleppo.
But how much water does this narrative carry? Not much, on examination.
People the world over are paralysed with helplessness as they continue to watch unfolding events in Aleppo. Unfortunately though, it is simply a reminder to us of what’s been going on throughout Syria for over 5 long years now. To inspire us to continue to call for the change that’s needed, we have compiled a list of the worst atrocities in Syria to date. Take them not as compounded hopelessness, but as a reminder as to why people want action to supplement their dua for the victims of these crimes and against the perpetrators.
