40 Reasons to Establish Khilafah & Dangers in not establishing Khilafah

1. The most basic of our duties to Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), is to establish His laws and make Him the Sovereign of the land [1]. Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) has given man the freedom to make whoever or whatever the Rabb. In the heavens, Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) has put loyal creatures, the Angels. Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) has made it the responsibility of the Muslims to make Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) the King of the earth as He is the King of the heavens. After the belief in Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), the establishments of Allah’s (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) laws are the most important subject in the Qur’an.

2. Establishing Khilafah, is like a Masjid and its Imam--- it is the peak of “Establishing salah”, just as in wudu, having the proper direction, learning humbleness, having a clean dress, and learning the salah to memory--- all these things are great, but without the Masjid and a true Imam, these parts of the salah, and salah itself is really losing its essence. In fiqh we call this “Uslul Usl” or “the root of the root”, by which all other laws are applied and a civilization is made.

3. Khilafah is an obligation on us from the text (Qur’an and Sunnah) [2], Ijmah of the Sahabah, and the need of the time… working for Khilafah could said to be greatest obligation after our immediate personal responsibility.

4. The Khilafah is also to protect the laws of the Deen. The Khilafah would put into place institutions that make sure we abide by the will of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala).

5. One of the main foreign policies will be to bring people into the fold of Islam, and then give them a place where they can practice Islam. Da’wah can not be carried out most effectively until the establishment of an Islamic State.

6. The Khilafah will be a proof of Islam; its laws given by Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), when implemented, will show to the world, and to the men of understanding, that humanity could not have produced such a perfect society, that is ideal and real at the same time. This will shahadah ‘alan naas (bear witness unto humanity) on the part of Muslims as whole to the Non-Muslims.

7. Khilafah is a sign of strength in our collective Iman. The Khilafah is a promise of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) for only the true believers [3]). This is the only way we will know we have true faith.

8. Khilafah is the right of every Muslim and Muslimah… it is their right to have the Protection of the Islamic Army.

9. One of the ways to create “Iman” is to be in a place or with people that have true & strong faith. The Khilafah will establish salat and spread zakat in proper priorities, in the most effective way… and will create a culture that fosters Iman.

10. The Khilafah will ensure an educational system whereby we would produce true slaves of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), and teach people in accordance to the needs of the Ummah.

11. The Khilafah will be a place where the leaders will be from the people, and they will not be stooges to non-Islamic elements… they will be pious people chosen by the Muslims. These leaders will be the servants of the people; they will not be professional politicians, who take huge salaries. If Khilafah is not established, then power will go into wrong hands, which will not be deserved, and will misuse it. Khilafah and issue of power is an important subject. Just as some power mongers in the world have decided no one deserves to have nuclear weapons besides themselves.

12. Muslims will always be in an Identity crisis unless they work to establish Khilafah. Otherwise we will be at odds with our own history.

13. We know from the ahadith of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) that this is the next great phase in Muslim and Islamic history [4].

14. The symbols of Mahdi, and the coming of ‘Isa (‘alahis salaam), are the path we should take, to be blessed to be among them, and we can ensure we will join them if the time comes.

15. This is the only way to break the shirk of nationalism that has plagued the entire Ummah. In the end result, people will feel the same patriot ness for the Islamic State what they feel for there national countries.

16. The zakat will bring about the same result that happened at the time of Umer bin Abdul Azeez [5].

17. The barakah (blessing) will be so much that the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) told us, the earth will open up its treasures to us. The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) said, “To establish a single hadd (maximum punishment) is better than forty days of rain”--- referring to the worldly benefits of the Shari’ah.

18. Foreign cultures plaguing the Muslim mind could properly dealt with. We are losing many Muslim youth to other ways of life, because they can not see Islam as something practical.

19. Over a billion Muslims have no representation. After the Khilafah (is established), the Muslims will have a state which speaks to their needs, and not to the desires of others.

20. Without the Islamic State, Muslims will always be under another way of life, that contradicts their own, and thus Muslims will always be in a state of low self respect… establishment of a functional Islamic State will boost the confidence in Islam, the Muslims truly today doubt. They to even talk about an important subject like Khilafah is taboo…

21. If Islam is the solution to all problems, then they cannot manifest themselves properly without an Islamic State.

22. The world is starving for an economic system that is an alternative to the one we have at the moment….a system without riba, which kills and enslaves people, families, and nations. The system of Riba which we are currently in, enslaves people; we will give them an economic system so they can surrender to Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala).

23. The world is looking for an entity that speaks the truth, and is the voice of justice. The oppressed world is looking for such a voice, and many people with good sense who understand that there is something wrong with the way the current world runs. It is the responsibility of the Muslims to be that voice, for only they can be that voice.

24. The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) always mentioned the glory of Islam, by its power, its dominance, and would mention about the future of Islam by the way of “Khilafah Rashidah”, “Mahdi”… because these are symbols that represent the holistic view of Islam.

25. The issue of Muslim Unity, can not be addressed without Khilafah, Muslims will always be divided in something as long as there is no Khilafah.

26. The issue of non-Muslims in Muslim lands can not be dealt with properly and honestly until the establishment of the Islamic State.

27. Without Khilafah, the lives, honor and the wealth of Muslims will be taken.

28. To understand the importance of Khilafah in the eyes of Islam’s enemies, is that the one objective they worked to finish was the symbol of Islamic unity (Khilafah) we had, not salah, not any one part of Islam. --- The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) said, “The Imam is the shield behind which the Ummah fights”… this is the only way Islam can protect itself. Bringing a billion people under one banner, means no one can disgrace us.

29. No civilization or culture can survive without a political backing. Islamic Civilization is going down the drain, while Pakistani, Egyptian, and Western ways of life are getting stronger… to resume the Islamic Civilization and culture we must establish Khilafah.

30. The Unity of the Muslims is also a fard… and its secret is the Khilafah… Asabeeyah (nationalism) is kufr… and it is a kabair (one of the biggest sins). By the British using the rule of “divide and conquer”, Muslims are killing one another in nationalistic fights. In the understanding of Prophet Haroon (‘alayhis salaam), the unity of the Ummah was more important than the issue of shirk even. If being nationalistic--- Pakistani, Palestinian, etc. is all kufr, then what else do we have but Khilafah?

31. The Muslims all over the world want unity, every conference, all khateebs at some point out the importance of this issue, but fail to mention Khilafah as its solution.

32. The only solution for Muslims is to properly use the resources that Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) has given to the Muslims and that is by establishing the Islamic State. Once we have Khilafah, all the physical resources (such as Oil, Weaponry) are used and directed in the correct manner, that which is most pleasing to Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) (acts which are justifiable and wouldn't make sense if condemned). The Muslim states today don't know how to use these valuable resources correctly. What also must be brought to the attention is that, in these Muslim lands, we already have those resources, however, Muslims must understand, that our resources are being exploited by others (foreigners, and corrupt rulers). So we should struggle hard to regain these resources and the only way to do that is to establish Khilafah.

33. It is the obligation of Muslims to remove corrupt Muslim leadership from the Muslim world.

34. Islam is not a religion, rather it is a world view, and it is more comprehensive than any other system. Islam has a political, economic, social, judicial aspects to it that must be established, otherwise what ever we have, is not Islam.

35. Every group, nation, culture, civilization works for its interests. How can we resume the interest of Islam at the broadest level without Khilafah?

36. Islam does not believe in clash of civilization, but rather clash of Haqq (Truth) and Batal (Falsehood), and in the eyes of batal, not letting Muslims regain the Khilafah is its triumph and victory.

37. The way to give birth to civilizations and ideologies is by giving sacrifice, just as our pious people before us. Only when Muslims are willing to give their sweat and blood will the help of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) come, and only then will the Khilafah come, and the Promises of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) will come true. To reject these promises of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) is kufr. The promise of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) includes the authority given to Muslims over land, fear will change to peace, and Islam will be established, shirk will be removed, and Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) will love this.

38. Muslims were great in dunya only when they were pious, and when the number of pious people went down, Muslims were disgraced. So, the two go hand in hand, if Muslims don’t have Khilafah that means we are disgraced, and if we do, we will be helped from the unseen, because of the pious among us.

39. The Khilafah will be an opportunity to show the opposite of “The Great American” experiment. Khilafah will show, how good political system means good families, which means good individuals. In the American experience they took morals out from the public domain, in hope the morality will come from bottom under. Instead of the good individuals having good families, and then building a good society, we find what happened was bad leaders, created bad families, which created bad individuals, and now they have a bad society which is morally decayed.

40. When the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) established Islam for us, how can it be when we meet him on the Day of Judgment and have not even struggled to regain what the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) spent his entire life to work for?

The most important lessons we learn are seven:

• Khilafah is one of the beautiful promises of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), and it is the only way to make the Deen of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) supreme.
• Khilafah will be given to only those who are truly Allah’s (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala), and the Khilafah will produce people who are truly Allah’s (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala).
• The issue of the Unity of Ummah cannot be dealt with and solved without Khilafah. Muslim unity was the key issue dealt with by all great revivers and reformers of Islam.
• The issue of corrupt Muslim leaders and false ideologies that taking over the Muslim world can not be solved without Khilafah.
• Khilafah can be the only true representative of Muslim interests.
• Khilafah is vital to carrying the message of Islam to the global community.
• Khilafah is the proof of Allah’s (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) Deen being true, and the words of the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) being true, and those follow this path being true.

What to do to establish Khilafah?

• First one must understand the importance of Khilafah.
• Second, one must make the Ahkirah a priority in his life so he can devote himself/herself fully to this cause.
• Third, he must join a group of people who have the same mission in life as himself or herself. Then s/he must work them to educate himself/herself.
• Then s/he will convey this message to others

The Ummah is like a sick person, when it receives the injection of Iman and the message of Khilafah, it will be cured.

1. Surah Al Mai’dah, ayat 44, 45, 47 and 48:
44. And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such are the Kafiroon (disbelievers, one who covers up the truth)!
45. And whosoever does not judge by that which Allah has revealed, such are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers)!
47. And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed (then) such (people) are the Fasiqun (the rebellious i.e. disobedient) to Allah!
48. And We have sent down to you (O Muhammad) the Book (this Qur'an) in truth, confirming the Scripture that came before it and Mohayminan (trustworthy in highness and a witness) over it (old Scriptures). So judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging away from the truth that has come to you! To each among you, We have prescribed a law and a clear way. If Allah willed, He would have made you one nation, but that (He) may test you in what He has given you; so strive as in a race in good deeds. The return of you (all) is to Allah; then He will inform you about that in which you used to differ!
8:38 And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the Deen will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world]!
2. 3:104 Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good (Islam), enjoining Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do) and forbidding Al-Munkar (polytheism and disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden). And it is they who are the successful!
3:110 You [true believers in Islamic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden), and you believe in Allah!
12:40 Verily the absolute right of legislating is for none but Allah!
18:26 And He made none share in his decision or rule!
4:60 Have you seen those who claim that they believe in that which has been sent down to you and that which has been sent down before you and they wish to go for judgment in their dispute to the Taghout (i.e. Un-Islamic Judges, Systems) while they have been ordered to reject them but Shaytaan wishes to lead them far astray!
33:36 It is unlawful for Believers, male or female, if Allah and His Messenger decree a command to have any choice but to abide with it and whosoever disobeys Allah or his Messenger went astray in plain misguidance!
8:73 And those who disbelieve are allies to one another, (and) if you (Muslims of the whole world collectively) do not do so (i.e. become allies, as one united block with one Khalifah - chief Muslim ruler for the whole Muslim world to make victorious Allah's Deen of Islam), there will be Fitnah (wars, battles, polytheism, etc.) and oppression on earth, and a great mischief and corruption (appearance of polytheism)!
3. 24:55 Allah has promised those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the earth (Khalif), as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practice their Deen (i.e., make it dominant), that which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islam). And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided) they (believers) worship Me and do not associate anything (in worship) with Me. But whoever disbelieved after this, they are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah)!
4. The Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhe wassallam) is reported to have said: "The prophet-hood will last as long as Allah is willing, then He will lift it. Then, a rightly guided Khilafah will be according to the prophet’s way and will last as long as Allah is willing, then Allah will lift it. Then, there will be a hereditary power that will last as long as Allah is willing, then Allah will lift it. Then, there will be dictatorships that will last as long as Allah is willing, then Allah will lift it. Then, there will be a Khilafah according to the prophet’s way. The prophet, then fell silent." {Authentic Hadith reported by Imams Ahmad, Al-Bazar and At-Tabrani.}
5. One day, Umer bin Abdul Azeez felt charitable and went out of his way to give wealth to whoever needed it. He traveled a long distance and could not find a single poor individual due to the system of Zakat under the Islamic State.
