The Women’s Section in the Central Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir in Coordination with Muslimah Hizb ut Tahrir Indonesia Successfully Held a Momentous International Women’s Conference in Indonesia: “Al-Khilafah & Education: Reviving the Golden Age”



On Saturday 11th of March, the Women’s Section in the Central Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir in coordination with Muslimah Hizb ut Tahrir Indonesia successfully hosted a momentous and remarkable International Women’s Conference in Jakarta, Indonesia entitled, “Al-Khilafah & Education: Reviving the Golden Age”. This important event, which was organized to address the causes and solution to the severe ‘Educational Crisis’ affecting the Muslim lands, was attended by around 1700 influential women from various countries as well as from across Indonesia. Delegates included teachers, lecturers, education practitioners responsible for the management of schools, journalists, academics, scholars, university students, youth activists and representatives of organisations. The speeches were delivered by female members of Hizb ut Tahrir from Indonesia, Palestine, Tunisia, the Arab Gulf, Malaysia, Turkey, Holland, and Britain. The atmosphere was electric and there was a resounding and passionate expression of support from attendees for the urgent re-establishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) based on the method of the Prophethood as the means to end the mountain of problems afflicting education in the Muslim world today under secular regimes and systems and the path to establish a first-class education system in the region. Delegates also expressed their determination to protect Muslim children from the intensified efforts of non-Islamic governments across the world to secularise Muslim children through education and destroy their Islamic identity. The event, which was broadcast online to viewers internationally, also included a parade of influential women involved in education who voiced their support for the ideas of the conference. The day also included a press conference, attended by various media.
Conference speeches detailed how the secular and capitalist view towards education in the Muslim lands had shaped education towards simply preparing students for employment and measuring their success on their value to the labour market rather than building their Islamic personality, life-skills, and directing their acquiring of knowledge to serve the needs and improve the lives of their societies. This alongside the poor organization and miserly funding of education under capitalist systems in the region, as well as the continued imposition of regressive colonial based education models whose aim was simply to enslave the minds of future Muslim generations to the western secular liberal culture, are the root of the education crisis. Speakers discussed that to build a first-class education system required the establishment of a first-class political system: the Khilafah, founded purely upon Islam. The conference therefore presented the education policy of the Khilafah as detailed comprehensively by Hizb ut Tahrir in its various publications, such as “The Foundations of the Education Curriculum in the Khilafah State”. The event discussed how this state would embrace an independent vision for education aimed at building distinguished Islamic personalities and excellence in the understanding of the Deen and of the empirical sciences, resulting in the generation of an abundance of Islamic scholars, and experts in every field of science and academia. It would also establish a strong connection between the education system and the vital needs and interests of the society in industry, agriculture, the economy, the military, science and technology and all other sectors, harnessing the best minds and skills of this Ummah to do so. This would ensure self-sufficiency of the state, break the dependence on other nations for development and progress, and end the brain drain from the Muslim lands. Furthermore, as a state that views securing quality education for all its citizens as an Islamic obligation, and that seeks to lead the world with the ideology of Islam, it would also prioritise investment in the education sector, including to build a world class higher-education system, and research, and specialization facilities – all funded by its sound Islamic economic system.
Speeches also highlighted how the Khilafah would lead the world in the excellence of women’s education as well as embrace teaching methods that would inspire, build creative analytical minds, and a thirst for knowledge. The conference highlighted that through this unrivalled Islamic education system, the Khilafah would therefore once again take its rightful position as the centre of learning of the world as well as generate a golden civilization of scholarship, innovation, and scientific advancement. The conference also discussed the importance of pre-school education as the first pillar in building the Islamic personality and enabling the child to deal with their surrounding environment. It also addressed the vital link between the Arabic language and education, ijtihad, understanding the Deen and returning the glory of Islam. And the final talk provided guidance on how to shape Islamic education today in the absence of the Khilafah to build Muslim youth with strong Islamic identities who are equipped to deal with the challenges against their Deen.
The conference was preceded on Friday 10th of March by a marvelous exhibition, attended by around 2500 girls and women from across Indonesia, including students from schools in 5 cities in and around Jakarta. It presented a host of exhibits and videos showcasing the subject matters of the conference and included talk shows on the provision of Islamic education today, and the failures of western educational models.
The conference and exhibition alongside the three-week global campaign on the subject of education, Islam and the Khilafah which preceded them, made a significant contribution Alhamdulillah to the current debates on how to formulate a successful educational model for the Muslim lands and indeed the world.

The Palestinian Authority is Engrossed in Surrendering the Waqf (Land) of Tamim Ad-Dari, may Allah be pleased with him Trampling over its Law, Infringing on the People of the Country, and Arresting the Sincere!



For more than a month, the Palestinian Authority (PA) and its most brutal criminals are practicing repression, arrests and intimidation, lies and misinformation in order to close the chapter of the land of the companion Tamim bin Aws Ad-Dari (ra); the PA gave away 72 dunums of land in the heart of the city of Al-Khalil (Hebron) to the hateful and criminal Russians, having been unable to circumvent the judiciary over recent years to give the Russians the ownership of the land of the companion Tamim Ad-Dari and his descendants to the Day of Judgment, this was through a gift from the Messenger of Allah (saw) which was recorded by Ali (ra) and was witnessed by Abu Bakr, Omar, and Othman, may Allah be pleased with them. Nearly a year ago, the PA was quick to issue a ministerial decree to transfer the waqf (endowment) land to the ownership of the state, and then it followed it up on 04/01/2017 with a presidential decree giving the land to the criminal Russians. It violated with this the emergency decision of the Supreme Court of Justice in Ramallah on 23/06/2016, which ordered the halting of the entire proceedings regarding the land, rushing before the final decision is made, which is supposed to return the land to the owners. unless the PA takes advantage of its influence to drag the  judges to be complicit with it in this crime, which started to show through unjustified procrastination and delay of the date of the court hearing.
For more than a month, the criminal PA have been practicing repression, arrests and intimidation against the sons of the tribes and families of Al Tamim, and Al-Khalil (Hebron) and from them are members of Hizb ut Tahrir in order to silence their voices and proceed with its crime. The PA attacked the peaceful picket that was organized by the families and tribes in Al-Khalil (Hebron) on Saturday, 4/2/2017, with repression, batons, tear gas and arresting dozens; arresting a number of them on the barriers erected at the entrances to the city, and in a desperate attempt by the PA to silence the voice of truth, it arrested Dr. Maher Al-Ja’bari, member of the Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir in Palestine, but it was disappointed when it saw the response of Al Tamim and Al-Ja’bari tribes and the people of Al-Khalil (Hebron) who accepted the invitation of the party on Saturday, 25/2/2017 to attend a peaceful picket against the political arrests. The PA was outraged when it saw thousands swarming the city center, who roared in the face of the PA and its crimes, defending their fellow brothers detained in the prisons of the PA. The PA began to hit left and right and assaulted people with sticks and batons and tear gas and shot live bullets on the air, leading to many injuries and it detained dozens once more.
And then it followed that by inventing lies to mislead public opinion, by describing protests as being a violation of the law and they intend to incite sedition. But the reports and the positions of human rights bodies bear witness to the lies of the PA and the invalidity of its claim and they stressed the peaceful and disciplined manner of the protests and their legality as opposed to the barbarism and arrogance of the PA and its violation of its alleged law. As for inciting of sedition, the position of Hizb ut Tahrir regarding the rights of dhimmis (non-Muslims) in the country is well known, and the party demonstrated the difference between their treatment and the treatment of the political and spiritual missions of colonialism and their dark history of handing over the land to the Jews, and it was enough to refute the PA’s fabrications, making it taste its own medicine. The dhimmis from Christians and others were witness to how Islam preserves their rights, and they lived under Islam with the Muslims under the Islamic Khilafah (caliphate), which preserved their rights since the Omari Pact, and they even entrusted Muslims with the keys of the Church of the Resurrection since the Ayoubi conquest, and they themselves are aware of the difference between them and the spiritual missions and those who stand behind them from the colonial states, but the criminal authority is trying to muddy the water to catch what justifies their crimes.
Thus the PA accumulated its crimes one after the other until it out performed its predecessors in its betrayal to Allah and His Messenger and the believers. It commits one evil crime after another ... with no shame or bashfulness; from surrendering of endowment land to the arrest of the sincere and assault on the people of the country to the spreading of lies and fabrications, all to reward the crimes of the Russians against the Ummah in Palestine and Ash-Sham (the Levant) and before that in Afghanistan, Chechnya and Central Asia, ignoring the rules of Islam and the law it wrote with its own hands, that law which criminalizes attacks on peaceful pickets and on those expressing their opinion. They are arresting people simply for their opinions that are contrary to the direction of the PA that surrenders the land, and it continues their detention without legal justification, and criminalizes violation of decisions of the Supreme Court of Justice or putting pressure on it, and prohibits the PA’s president from giving the state property as well as people's property as a gift. But the PA is not bothered with the Shar’i crime and the prohibition of what it is committing to the land and its people and the members of the party, and it did not abide by the law that covers its crimes!! In a clear message from the PA that it does not hold any weight to the sanctities of Islam or the law!!!
O our people, the descendants of the companion of the Messenger of Allah, Tamim Ad-Dari:
Have Trust in Allah the Strong and Powerful, and hold tight to the rope of Allah, stand firm on your positions and adhere to the rules of Allah (swt), do not listen to those who humiliate us, the cowards. If all the people let you down, Allah will not let you down. Hizb ut Tahrir will stand by you and among you and will proclaim the truth and call for the good and the establishment of the Deen until Allah honors us all not only by recovering the waqf land, but by liberating all of the blessed land.
O our people in the Blessed Land:
This case belongs to you and you are the people of the Blessed Land, you are able, Allah willing, to stand in the face of this criminal authority and stop it from perpetrating its crimes, so hold tight to the rope of Allah, and proclaim the truth and be Allah’s supporters, He (swt) will grant you victory:
﴿إِنْ يَنْصُرْكُمُ اللَّهُ فَلَا غَالِبَ لَكُمْ وَإِنْ يَخْذُلْكُمْ فَمَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَنْصُرُكُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ وَعَلَى اللَّهِ فَلْيَتَوَكَّلِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ
“If Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you; but if He should forsake you, who is there that can aid you after Him? And upon Allah let the believers rely” [Al-Baqara: 160]
And know that in Islam there is greatness, so glorify Islam by which you will be supported, and stand with the family of Tamim Ad-Dari in their cause, which is your cause.
In conclusion we say to the PA:
Hizb ut Tahrir did not remain silent and will not remain silent for a day over your crimes, and it will always stand against you, as long as you remain helpers of the enemy, your barbarism against its members will not weaken it, your scheming will only harm you, we are strong because Allah is with us, the Powerful, you are nothing but a project of our enemies, the Americans and the West, used to serve their interests and the interests of the Jews, and you will perish soon, the best end is for the pious ones, Allah (swt) will make His Deen prevail even if the Kuffar detest it. Allah (swt) says:
﴿إِنَّ الأَرْضَ لِلّهِ يُورِثُهَا مَن يَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ وَالْعَاقِبَةُ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ
“… Indeed, the earth belongs to Allah. He causes to inherit it whom He wills of His servants. And the [best] outcome is for the righteous.” [Al-A”raf: 128]
It is better for you to stop (if there is any wise one among you) and repent to Allah before it is too late. Allah (swt) says:
﴿وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّن ذُكِّرَ بِآيَاتِ رَبِّهِ ثُمَّ أَعْرَضَ عَنْهَا إِنَّا مِنَ الْمُجْرِمِينَ مُنتَقِمُونَ
“And who is more unjust than one who is reminded of the verses of his Lord; then he turns away from them? Indeed We, from the criminals, will take retribution” [As-Sajda: 22]
So return the land to its owners and release the members of Hizb ut Tahrir and remove your hand from Palestine and its people, if you have any sense.
