The following is a translation from a release in Arabic.
The Khilafah Rashidah is the only means for attaining Political-Ideological unity and unity in ‘Ibadaat and Ta’at (pious deeds).
Due to the treachery of the rulers sitting on the heads of the Muslims and the deception of the ‘Ulama with little knowledge of the Sharee’ah we witness the discussions and disputes regarding the sighting of moon for the holy month of Ramadhan and the obligation of Muslims to fast as per the correct sighting of the moon. As a consequence of this, Muslims begin the fast on different days and some times fasting even on the day of eid when fasting is forbidden.
And we witness similar dilemma regarding the Eid al-Adha which is celebrated in the month of Dhil Hijjah. This is because the hijri calendar months begin and end with the position of the moon. All the events like the hajj which takes place in the month of Dhil Hijjah, the day (Yaum) of ‘Arafa and the Eid days are determined by the position of the moon. Whereas the unjust Turkish officials who follow the astronomical calculations had already pre-determined a year back that Sunday, 31st December, 2006 will be the first day of the Eid al-Adha thereby these misled officials also misled those who take recourse to them for such matters.
The month of Dhil Hijja began actually a day earlier than the day which the Turkish religious men pre-determined following the astronomical calculations. The Higher Shara’ee Judicial Council in Saudi Arabia declared that Thursday, 21st December will be the first day of the month of Dhil Hijjah, after the devout Muslims sighted the new moon for the month, therefore the day of ‘Arafa as per the Sharee’ah would fall on Friday 29th December and the first day of the Eid al-adha would be on Saturday, 30th December. As a result, the Muslim Ummah did not begin their eid simultaneously because of the treacherous rulers who are crouched upon its head. Apart from this, it also meant that the pious Muslims who intended to fast on the day of ‘Arafah for gaining the pleasure of Allah (swt), will be actually fasting on a forbidden day, because the fasting on the first day of Eid is Haram under the Sharee’ah.
After the colonialist kuffar destroyed the Khilafah state, they succeeded in disintegrating the Muslim political-ideological structure, thanks to the support of their agent rulers whom they had appointed to safeguard their interests. Now they are bent upon disintegrating the spiritual essence that manifests in the uniform Muslim worships and obedience to Allah (swt). The Prophet (saw) had already informed us that Islam will be first uncovered in its ruling and the last thing to be uncovered will be its worships, he said:
"لتنقضن عرى الإسلام عروة عروة، فكلما انتقضت عروة تشبث الناس بالتي تليها، وأولهن نقضا الحكم وآخرهن الصلاة".
“The knots of Islam will be undone one after another, after every one undone, the people will cling on to the next one; the first to be undone will be of ruling and the last one to be undone will be of Salat.”
There is absolutely no doubt that the Khilafah Rashidah state on the model of the Prophethood is the only force capable of raising the Ummah to be the best Ummah unifying its ‘Aqaid & ‘Ibadaat; values & feelings; its lands & resources and raise the torch of Islam sending the message of guidance for the entire world by da’wah and Jihad.
