بسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ
مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَيْهِ فَمِنْهُم مَّن قَضَى نَحْبَهُ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَنتَظِرُ وَمَا بَدَّلُوا تَبْدِيلاً
"Among the Believers are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah: of them some have died, and some (still) wait: but they have never changed (their determination) in the least." [Al-Ahzab: 23]
On 11 September 2006 Hizb ut-Tahrir - Wilayah of Iraq announced the death of one of its youth, carrier of the Dawah, the martyr: “Hikmat Wali Al-Ta’i”
Who was kidnapped on Wednesday 06.09.2006, by the armed gangs which were brought up and nourished under the shade of the occupation, his body was found on 11.09.2006 -with signs of brutal torture on it– in the judicial medical center in Baghdad.
A press release from the Media office of Hizb ut-Tahrir Wilayah of Iraq said that in spite of what its members are being exposed to in Iraq and in other countries, from arresting, torture and killing- it will not divert from its goal for which it has been working for more than half a century, which is to resume the Islamic life, by establishing the Khilafah on the path of prophethood, and in the legal method which Prophet Muhammad (saw) had followed, through intellectual debate and political struggle, and away from the materialistic (i.e. violent) deeds.
At the time when our hearts are full of grief and sorrow, we entrust our martyrs to Allah Almighty, he is the best patronage and the best supporter.
May Allah encompass the deceased with his great mercy, and let paradise be his residence, with the prophets, believers, martyrs and pious, who are the best company.
ولا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله العلي العظيم
There is no power or strength except with Allah the sublime and mighty.
