Kuwait on hunting campaign directed at the Shabab of Hizb ut-Tahrir
Accuses them of working for establishing the Islamic Khilafah!
For more than a month now, the Kuwaiti security services have launched a massive campaign of arrests of Shabab of Hizb ut-Tahrir. It began by the arrest of Hassan Dahi, the head of the Media Office, who had been to the newspaper offices for publishing an article to mark the 86th painful anniversary of the destruction of Khilafah. The article read: “…that on 28 Rajab 1342 AH, i.e. 3rd March 1924, the Khilafah was destroyed, and since then the Muslims have been without a Khaleefah and without the bay’ah on their necks, and the implementation of the provisions of the Islamic commands is in suspension. On this painful occasion, we look up to the Almighty Allah (swt) in the hope that the future dawns upon us only in a state of Khilafah, as the Prophet (saw) had said: “... and then the Khilafah will return on the model of the Prophethood.”
This declaration is construed by the Attorney General as criminal enough to arrest the media chief along with three of his brothers, and then rounded up two more brothers later while the campaign continues relentlessly; summoning one, detaining another, and releasing some and placing some under surveillance. He declared his resolve to eliminate Hizb ut-Tahrir from Kuwait because the Hizb aims to establish Khilafah and remove the State of Kuwait from existence.
The State Attorney General declared that such acts are a crime! He repeated his statement in the press and broadcast media, more than once during the day that that the Hizb works to establish a Khilafah! Reiterating that it was a crime that aims to eliminate the entity of Kuwait!
Ever since the persecution campaign began, we expected it to be like the summer cloud, and the state of Kuwait will cease its treacherous campaign against the Shabab of Hizb in repentance to Allah (swt), His Prophet and the believers. It was with this hope that we refrained from issuing any response on this issue. But Kuwait persists in its campaign which indicates that it is turning blind to reality, and the Kuffar colonialists’ instructions are being implemented against the Shabab of the Hizb. It clearly points to the fact that Kuwait has joined certain other countries in carrying out oppressive assaults against the Hizb!
Just as we are aware, the Kuwaiti security forces also understand that this is not the reason for the prosecution of the Hizb’s Shabab, the people of Kuwait are Muslims, and even members of the security services are Muslim, a Muslim can not reject the Khilafah that unites all Muslims in a single ummah (nation) which is the best nation on earth, an ummah that will make the Muslims proud and humble the disbelievers. No, it is not the people of Kuwait or the men in the security agencies who reject the Khilafah!
This is about the Khilafah; neither a Kuwaiti Muslim is opposed to it nor any other Muslim elsewhere. On the other hand is it true that the regime in Kuwait fears for its own existence from Khilafah and is bothered that Kuwait is mentioned as a Wilayah (province) in the Hizb ’s literature, as the security agencies have learnt during interrogation of the Hizb ’s Shabab detained for distributing the leaflets.
The security agencies are fully aware that the ultimate aim of the Hizb is to establish a Khilafah in Kuwait, a Khilafah which is neither a protectorate state, nor a weak and small statelet which has no strength of its own and is forced to execute the orders of others in order to survive! The Khilafah is a gigantic state that confronts and fights the Kuffar Colonial States, upholds the Haqq, subjugates Batil, a country where Islam is applied, and its security is by virtue of Islam, it carries the call of Islam to the world honoring the believers who seek shelter under it and subjugating the non-believers who seek protection of the enemies of Allah (swt), His Prophet (saw) and Mumineen.
This is Khilafah, and it is not becoming of Khilafah to focus entirely on Kuwait which was carved out by the British and is now under the US hegemony. The Khilafah stresses for a powerful, sustainable and viable country. Does it amount to demeaning of Kuwait when the press statements of the Hizb name it as a Wilayah just like those from say Egypt or Indonesia which describe them as wilayas? It is in fact honour for Kuwait to be referred to as a Wilayah of the Islamic State.
We are aware, just as the security agencies are also aware that these are not reasons for launching such a campaign against the Hizb’s Shabab, but the real reason is that the United States is angry that the Hizb exposes their nefarious designs and conspiracies against the Muslims, including Kuwaiti Muslims. The US is also upset that the Hizb calls upon the Muslim to stand up against America, Britain and their greed. The voices of truth in the media as well as certain recent interviews that have exposed the US, and before this, the Hizb’s statements that have consistently highlighted the exploitation by the US have also contributed to the US’s ire. These statements have exposed that the US uses Kuwait as a launching point for its economic, military and political agenda in the region: For example, the opening provided for the American forces in Kuwait to carry out its ambitions for the northern areas; Convention on the security arrangements between America and Kuwait, protecting American military bases in Kuwait, the treaties by virtue of which the US continues to plunder oil resources of the region, and above all, the hate that the Kuffar occupiers led by America harbour for those who work for the Khilafah, … it is all of these factors that prompted the United States to issue instructions to the Kuwaiti ruling system and the security agencies to prosecute the Shabab of the Hizb .
Dear People of Kuwait!
Ever since the Hizb was formed, other countries have subjected the Shabab of the Hizb to severe torture, detentions and even martyred them on a larger scale than the security forces of Kuwait have, however, but these atrocities against it have neither weakened our determination nor broken our resolve or convictions. On the other hand, the Hizb has always emerged stronger in the face of adversities, as is inspired and encouraged by the promise of victory and not broken by hardships. Yet, we do not like the Kuwaiti regime to toe the line of repressive brutality against those who say: “We believe in Allah” and confront the Kuffar colonialists led by America which is itself crumbling under its own misdeeds. But the wrong has already been done, now we remind them of the fate of the blackened wrong doers: Shame and humiliation in this world and the agony of dreadful suffering at the hands of this Ummah when Allah bestows Khilafah to us; and then on the Day of Resurrection, a great torment will be their destiny:
مُهْطِعِينَ مُقْنِعِي رُءُوسِهِمْ لاَ يَرْتَدُّ إِلَيْهِمْ طَرْفُهُمْ وَأَفْئِدَتُهُمْ هَوَاءٌ.
“(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 14:43]
As for the Hizb, Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw) and the believers are with it, and it will neither waver nor shake in its mission to which it is committed no matter what the rulers of Kuwait or others do to it. The Hizb is engaged consistently in its efforts to restore the Islamic way of life under the Khilafah state. The Prophet has given us glad-tidings of the return of Khilafah, he (saw) said:
«... ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلاَفَةً عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ النُّبُوَّةِ».
… and then there will be Khilafah on the model of the Prophethood.
Apart from this, the Hizb is also reassured of the whole-hearted support of the Ummah which has realised that establishing the Khilafah is a great obligation, rather it the mother of all obligation (Taj ul Faraidh). This awakening and the support of the Ummah is a clear indication that this mission is on the verge of success, that will be day when:
وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ (4) بِنَصْرِ اللَّهِ يَنْصُرُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ.
“And on that day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice (at the victory given by Allâh to the Romans against the Persians) –With the Help of Allâh. He helps whom He wills, and He is the All-Mighty, the Most Merciful.”[TMQ 30:04 & 05]
