“So take heed, O people of insight!”

The following leaflet is the translation of an Arabic leaflet.

The streets of Cairo resound with huge protests by the people against the oppression and tyranny of the Egyptian regime. A regime that silenced the people through force and repression, and put terror in their hearts through imprisonment and severe torture. This oppressive regime betrayed the core issues of the Ummah: it raised the flag of the ‘Israel’ in Egypt, sold its authority and sovereignty over the Sinai, blockaded the Muslims in Gaza, and committed many like major sins without having any shame or fear of Allah, His Messenger (saw) or the believers.

This regime spread corruption in the land and sold the country to the enemies of Allah, making it a playfield for America and ‘Israel’ such that they pillaged its resources and divided them with the president of the regime, his entourage, henchmen and followers. They lived decadent lives whilst the people lived in destitute poverty, extreme hunger, and faced obscene prices for basic commodities.

In all of this the regime was content with its power, the cruelty of its henchmen, and its ruling party’s policies to lead people astray. It was content with this cruelty, oppression and misguidance, thinking that the people will never raise their voice, or move against it. It forgot that oppression and subjugation eventually leads to an eruption and that the deeds of the transgressor come back to haunt him!

Tunisia exploded with growing popular protests, followed by Yemen and Jordon, and here now is Egypt...and it seems that the rest of the Muslim lands will follow suit! Inspite of all this, the leaders of the regime did not desist, nor pay heed. Nay, they did not even use their minds! They sought a solution, asking here and there, till Mubarak contacted Obama. The two had a long conversation in which Obama advised, nay ordered, Mubarak to discharge the government so he did so, and put in its place another government and a vice-president, after not having appointed one over thirty long years! He appointed Omar Suleiman, head of the Egyptian Intelligence, as Vice-President and Ahmed Shafik as Prime Minister. He thought that by implementing the order of America he would save his throne with his crooked pillars. He did not understand that America will sell him for a cheap price and place another agent in his place if the matter becomes more severe!

Indeed these rulers have eyes with which they do not see, ears with which they do not hear, and hearts with which they do not reflect. This is why they trample all over the people whilst wanting them to remain silent. This is why they relegate and ignore Islam whilst wanting the Muslims to not revolt. This is why they ally themselves with the disbelieving colonialists whilst wanting that the people of Truth make no noise.

O Rulers, O Oppressors...The people are Muslims. No oppressive, transgressing ruler will be firmly established amongst them so long as they are not ruled by their Islam, and so long as they are not allied with Allah, His Messenger (saw) and the believers, instead of being allied with the disbelieving colonialists. Even if they are silent for a period, the tongue of their state speaks out in the words of the poet: The eyelid of honour has not fallen asleep / It is naught but the calm of the lion before his charge.

Indeed Egypt was liberated by the blood of the Mujahideen, and that blood will never go to waste. Nay, the land of Egypt will return as honourable and powerful with Islam, trampling over the oppressors. Even if the world blooms for the oppressor one day, Allah, the all-Powerful, will deal him a mortal blow on another day in which he deems himself invincible. The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, “Verily Allah affords the oppressor some time, until when He takes hold of him, He does not let him go.” (Bukhari and Muslim)

O Muslims, O Beloved People of Egypt,
The head of the regime intends to deceive you. He paints the problem as being in the government, whilst he knows, and you know, that the government cannot endorse any matter without his approval. He paints the problem as being in the ruling party whilst he knows that the ruling party is no more than a collection of venal mercenaries who see in the party a means to usurp wealth through corruption and bribery. Nothing brings them together except ease of acquiring selfish interests through prohibited means. Thus if they see that the party becomes a means for loss they immediately disperse. You see now in front of your very eyes the government and the ruling party, with all their members who were counted as being in the millions, having no influence whatsoever in front of the people who have spoken out against oppression and the oppressors!

O Muslims, O Beloved People of Egypt,
Indeed the head of the serpent is the system itself, so do not preoccupy yourselves with its tail. Do not be deceived by the announcement of the new security government whilst the system remains as it is. The disease is the system itself, in its being secular and being allied with the head of kufr, America. America at present is observing and assessing the situation of the regime in Egypt. It is affording the regime some time to act and quell the protests. Thus the regime has adopted certain styles: sending its henchmen to be amongst the people of the uprising and to loot, burn and pillage, in order to give its new security government a justification to force the people back off the streets on grounds of restoring security, whilst having themselves caused the chaos!

If the regime is not able to quell the uprising through its new security government, and America sees that her agent has lost control, she will seek to place another agent in his place. And with the appointment of Omar Suleiman as the vice to Mubarak, she has already prepared the new agent in the given opportunity!

O Muslims, O Beloved People of Egypt,
You must be aware of what is occurring, so that you do not become like the one who seeks protection from extreme heat by means of fire! Know that this matter of yours will not be corrected except by that which corrected it (for your forefathers) in the first instance: ruling by what Allah has revealed, and Jihad in the path of Allah. So do stop your uprising until the system itself is changed from top to bottom, and establish in its place the state of Islam, the Khilafah Rashidah, a deed by which you will be honoured and successful in this world and the hereafter.

O Muslims, O Beloved People of Egypt,
Who is better than Egypt, the land of al-Kinanah, for the establishment of the Khilafah? Who is better than the Egypt of Salahuddin for the liberation of Palestine from the Jews, just as the Egypt of Salahuddin liberated it from the Crusaders? Who is better than the Egypt of Kinanah for whose Copts the Messenger of Allah (s) instructed good treatment saying, “For them shall be mercy”? Who is better than Egypt for the return of the civilisation and justice of Islam and noble life for both its Muslims and Copts? Who is better than Egypt to be the capital of the Khilafah, the capital of the World, overseeing the people’s affairs with justice and encompassing the world with sincerity, liberating lands and spreading good throughout the world?

O Muslims, O Beloved People of Egypt,
Hizb ut-Tahrir warns you about the deception of the regime, which seeks to preoccupy you with small matters, and to make you forget that the disease is the system itself, and that loyalty to America is a violent death. So trample over both of them, you shall find true success. Establish the Khilafah Rashidah, you shall be revived. Do not fear the power of the oppressors for they are truly weak compared to Allah (swt), and He, the Powerful and Mighty, is not unaware of them.
{وَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ اللَّهَ غَافِلًا عَمَّا يَعْمَلُ الظَّالِمُونَ }
Deem not that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do…” (Ibrahim: 42)

O Muslims, O Beloved People of Egypt,
Hizb ut-Tahrir advises you not to forsake the pure blood of your sons which has been shed in this blessed uprising. It warns you from being led astray by those parties who have entered the fray intending to exploit that pure blood for their own evil objectives. If you are led astray you will end up taking shade under trees that you did not plant, and picking fruits that you did not seek to ripen.

Stand in the face of these people. Do not be content with the substitution of one agent for another. Uproot the influence of America in Egypt. By this, the pure blood of your sons will remember you with good, you would have paid its due, and gained the pleasure of Allah, His Messenger (saw) and the believers.

Do not be deceived by the cutting of the serpent’s tail whilst it head remains, no matter how that head is decorated. Allah is with you, and He will never let your good deeds go to waste.

{هَذَا بَلَاغٌ لِلنَّاسِ وَلِيُنْذَرُوا بِهِ}
“This is a clear message for people, so let them take warning therefrom...” (Ibrahim: 52)
