A Call to the Fighter Organizations and the Clans in Iraq and Ash-Sham: Stop the Infighting amongst Yourselves
الَّذِينَ إِنْ مَكَّنَّاهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ أَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتَوُا الزَّكَاةَ وَأَمَرُوا بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَنَهَوْا عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَلِلَّهِ عَاقِبَةُ الْأُمُورِ
وَلَنْ يَجْعَلَ اللَّهُ لِلْكَافِرِينَ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ سَبِيلًا
Islam's Requirements for Khilafah State - Hizb ut-Tahrir America
The "Islamic State in Iraq & Sham" (ISIS) group announced the re-establishment of the Khilafah in some areas of Iraq & Syria on Sunday June 29th the first day of Ramadan. The group appointed Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi (the leader of ISIS) as the Khalifah and changed its name from ISIS to "Islamic State" (IS). Later IS requested the Muslims to give bayah to Al-Baghdadi.
In light of these developments Hizb ut Tahrir -- America organized a lecture followed by iftar on Friday July 11th to discuss this announcement, its legitimacy and what constitutes an Islamic State (Khilafah).
