The Ruling by what Allah has Revealed

O Muslims, O honourable brothers and sisters!

The ruling by what Allah سبحانه وتعالى has revealed is a firm obligation established by the command of Allah:

Allah سبحانه وتعالى says in his Kitaab Al-Kareem:

لْيَوْمَ يَئِسَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْ دِينِكُمْ فَلَا تَخْشَوْهُمْ وَاخْشَوْنِ ۚ الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا

"Today I have perfected your deen for you and completed My blessing upon you and I am pleased with Islam as a deen for you."

(Al-Maa'idah, 5:3)

And He سبحانه وتعالى said:

وَنَزَّلْنَا عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ تِبْيَانًا لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةً وَبُشْرَىٰ لِلْمُسْلِمِينَ

"We have sent down the Book to you making all things clear and as guidance and mercy and good news for the Muslims."

(An-Nahl, 16:89)

And He سبحانه وتعالى said:

وَمَنْ لَمْ يَحْكُمْ بِمَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْكَافِرُونَ

"Those who do not judge by what Allah has sent down, such people are kafirun."

(Al-Maa'idah, 5:44)

Similarly the ruling by what Allah سبحانه وتعالى has revealed is also firmly established by the command of the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم who said: "The children of Israel used to be ruled by their Prophets. Whenever a prophet died another prophet succeeded him, but there will be no prophet after me. There will be Khulafa'a and they will number many. They asked: What then do you order us? He صلى الله عليه وسلم said: Fulfil the bay'ah to them one after the other and give them their due. Surely Allah will ask them about what He entrusted them with".

And he صلى الله عليه وسلم said: "Whoever takes away his hand from obedience he will meet Allah on the day of judgement without having any proof for himself and whoever dies whilst not having a Bay'ah on his neck then he dies the death of Jaahilliyah".

And he صلى الله عليه وسلم said: "If two Khaleefahs are given the Bay'ah then kill the latter of them".

And he صلى الله عليه وسلم said: "Whoever comes to you whilst your affair is united upon one single man and he wants to strike at your strength and divide your unity then strike his neck whoever he may be".

So the Shar'iah rule is the obligation of appointing one Khalifah for the Muslims and the obligation for them to have one single state, the Khilafah. Establishing the Islamic ruling system upon this basis is a matter that the Muslims and the world has known for more than thirteen hundred years in which the Muslim lands progressed, the Muslims rejoiced, the Muslims held honour and the enemies of Islaam were vanquished. This was demonstrated in the words of the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم when he said: "And then there will be a Khilafah on the path of the Prophethood" (Ahmad).

So after experiencing this completion found in Islaam are we then driven like herds to the western manmade rotten democratic systems so as to abandon this great matter that Allah has commanded us with, that unites the Ummah of Islam into one state under a single ruling system? Do we abandon this for that which is subject to desires, opinions and the opposing interests of people?!

O Muslims, O honourable brothers and sisters!

Verily the ruling by what Allah سبحانه وتعالى has revealed in every large and small matter is an obligation and how great an obligation it is. It is a matter that must be known by fro the Deen by necessity and ignorance of it is not permitted. The obligation of ruling by what Allah سبحانه وتعالى has revealed and working for it is a matter that must be known from the Deen by necessity and other than the Islamic rule in terms of the democratic system is Kufr. It is based on other than the Islamic Aqueedah as it is based upon the Aqueedah (belief) of separating the Deen from life. It is a system established upon the ruling of the people themselves, so the people hold the sovereignty in terms of issuing laws and legislations which is decided by the majority vote irrespective of whether they are Halaal or Haraam. This represents a contestation of Allah in terms of ruling and this is what is happening right now in this land of good people where their exists a constitutional assembly which is legislating constitutions and laws without any regard.

So the civil or democratic or secular state are all words that carry the same meaning which is that the ruling belongs to man and is prevented from belonging to the Lord of man.

Allah سبحانه وتعالى states:

فَلَا وَرَبِّكَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ حَتَّىٰ يُحَكِّمُوكَ فِيمَا شَجَرَ بَيْنَهُمْ ثُمَّ لَا يَجِدُوا فِي أَنْفُسِهِمْ حَرَجًا مِمَّا قَضَيْتَ وَيُسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا

"No, by your Lord, they are not believers until they make you their judge in the disputes that break out between them, and then find no resistance within themselves to what you decide and submit themselves completely."

(An-Nisaa, 4:65)

And He سبحانه وتعالى says:

وَأَنِ احْكُمْ بَيْنَهُمْ بِمَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ وَلَا 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

"Judge between them by what Allah has sent down and do not follow their whims and desires. And beware of them lest they lure you away from some of what Allah has sent down to you. If they turn their backs, then know that Allah wants to afflict them with some of their wrong actions. Many of mankind are deviators."

(Al-Maa'idah, 5:49)

And He سبحانه وتعالى states:

وَإِنْ كَادُوا لَيَفْتِنُونَكَ عَنِ الَّذِي أَوْحَيْنَا إِلَيْكَ لِتَفْتَرِيَ عَلَيْنَا غَيْرَهُ ۖ وَإِذًا لَاتَّخَذُوكَ خَلِيلًا

وَلَوْلَا أَنْ ثَبَّتْنَاكَ لَقَدْ كِدْتَ تَرْكَنُ إِلَيْهِمْ شَيْئًا قَلِيلًا

"They were very near to enticing you away from some of what We have revealed to you, hoping that you would invent something against Us. Then they would have taken you as their intimate. If We had not made you firm, you would have leaned towards them a little."

(Al-Israa, 17:73-74)

O Muslims, O Noble brothers and sisters!

This republican system is a secular democratic system and even if it has been cloaked with the clothing of Islaam or dressed with the terminology of 'Islamic reference' as is being marketed today in an attempt to hide its real ugly face. This is in addition to this being the very same system that has caused you to suffer woes for more than fifty years and indeed everyone who has lived in the Islamic lands have felt these woes in terms of humiliation, weakness and subservience to the disbelieving west via their agents, the heads of state of these republican systems.

O Muslims, O honourable brothers and sisters!

These are my words to you, I say them not fearing those who will accuse me and I wanted to declare them so as to release my responsibility in its regard in front of Allah سبحانه وتعالى. It is to denounce a Munkar (evil) and to drive away a terrible and grave sin in regards to ruling by other than what Allah سبحانه وتعالى has revealed. It is in accordance to the Hadeeth of the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم: "The best of Jihaad is the word of truth said to the oppressive authority" and the oppression in this case is clear as it is the oppression of ruling by other than what Allah سبحانه وتعالى has revealed.

Verily the Khilafah is the system of ruling in Islaam that the Lord of the worlds has legislated and the Muslims have not known anything other than it. They did not diverge from it a hairs breadth and it is the only way of implementing the Shari'ah of Allah fully and comprehensively in life. By it the Da'wah of Islaam is carried to the world by way of invitation and Jihaad and it is the only way of uniting the Muslims returning their honour, might and strength and of spreading justice between them and all of the people.

It is for this that we call you to, to work for the sake of establishing Islaam so as to earn the pleasure of Allah سبحانه وتعالى in this life and the next. And we warn you from that which is being plotted against you to deceive you by a regime that has yet to fall and even more so has turned against the revolution. So make it a revolution that continues until the Khilafah and a revolution that continues until Islaam is applied in full and not partially.

Allah سبحانه وتعالى states:

فَمَنِ اتَّبَعَ هُدَايَ فَلَا يَضِلُّ وَلَا يَشْقَىٰ

وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَنْ ذِكْرِي فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنْكًا وَنَحْشُرُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَعْمَىٰ

"All those who follow My guidance will not go astray and will not be miserable. But if anyone turns away from My reminder, his life will be a dark and narrow one and on the Day of Rising We will gather him blind."

(Taha, 20:123-124)

And Allah سبحانه وتعالى states:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ

"O You who believe! Respond to Allah and to the Messenger when He calls you to what will bring you to life!"

(Al-Anfaal, 8:24)
