Delegation of Hizb ut-Tahrir in SudanSubmits a statement on the execution of Shabab of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Morocco to the Moroccan Embassy
A delegation of Hizb ut-Tahrir submitted today the 29th Dhil Hijjah 1427 A.H 18th Jan, 2007 C.E to the Moroccan Embassy in Khartoum a press statement issued by the Media Office of Hizb ut-Tahrir in north Africa titled:
"وَالَّذِينَ يُؤْذُونَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ بِغَيْرِ مَا اكْتَسَبُوا فَقَدِ احْتَمَلُوا بُهْتَانًا وَإِثْمًا مُّبِينًا".
“And those who annoy believing men and women undeservedly bear on themselves the crime of slander and plain sin.”
The statement cites reports by the shabab of Hizb ut-Tahrir about executions and kidnappings by the security agencies of Morocco. They were also charged regarding the following allegation:
- Receiving donations and gifts from abroad to threaten peace and calm.
- Distributing leaflets of congratulations on eid al adha 1426 A.H.
- Distributing leaflets about autonomous rule in al Sahara and stating its opinion on it.
- Distributing pamphlets that called for the true Islamic rule, which is the Khilafah system, in place of the man-made government in Morocco which does not implement the commands of Allah (swt) and His Prophet (saw).
- That they belong to the Hizb ut-Tahrir.
The statement highlighted that the Hizb ut-Tahrir is well known to all and that it is political party whose ideology is Islam. It does not undertake material action, and this is not due to its fears from any one but because follows the methodology of the Prophet (saw) who did not utilize any material means during the Da’wah phase while in Makkah. The (Moroccan) state cannot deny this. Therefore Hizb ut-Tahrir is a political party that does use material action and methods and this is evident throughout its existence of more than fifty years.
The statement named the shabab who have been sentenced to between 3 to 4 years with financial penalties. The statement said that the authority in Morocco is similar to a colonialist state that has abandoned its obligation of calling for the Khilafah and imprisons the shabab to prevent them from the truth, as Allah (swt) said:
وَمَا نَقَمُوا مِنْهُمْ إِلا أَن يُؤْمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ الْعَزِيزِ الْحَمِيدِ
“They had nothing against them, except that they believed in Allah, the All-Mighty, Worthy of all Praise!” [TMQ 85:08]
In conclusion the statement said: “The treacherous await humiliation in this world and on the day of judgement, there is severe punishment for them. As Allah (swt) said:
]وَلاَ تَحْسَبَنَّ اللّهَ غَافِلاً عَمَّا يَعْمَلُ الظَّالِمُونَ إِنَّمَا يُؤَخِّرُهُمْ لِيَوْمٍ تَشْخَصُ فِيهِ الأَبْصَارُ + مُهْطِعِينَ مُقْنِعِي رُءُوسِهِمْ لاَ يَرْتَدُّ إِلَيْهِمْ طَرْفُهُمْ وَأَفْئِدَتُهُمْ هَوَاء[
"Consider not that Allah is unaware of that which the Zalimun (polytheists, wrong-doers, etc.) do, but He gives them respite up to a Day when the eyes will stare in horror. (They will be) hastening forward with necks outstretched, their heads raised up (towards the sky), their gaze returning not towards them and their hearts empty (from thinking because of extreme fear).” [TMQ 14:42]
