[Speech of Sheikh Hassan Al Janayni at the Global Khilafah Conference in Jakarta, which was held on Sunday, 23 Rajab 1434 AH, corresponding to 02 June 2013]
-بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
All praise be to the Lord of the worlds and peace and blessings be upon the one sent as a mercy for mankind, our Prophet Muhammad and upon his family and all of his companions.
Asalamu alaikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatuh,
I pray that you are pleased and may Allah grant you a good path and an abode in Jannah. I ask Allah Almighty; just as He gathered us here in the dunya, that He may us gather under the shade of the Khilafah Rashida upon the method of the Prophethood and in the Hereafter in the abode of mercy.
((يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ))
"Oh you who believe answer the call of Allah and the messenger to that which gives you life and know that Allah comes between man and his heart and to Allah you will return."
Allah has sent the Messenger (saw) to remove people from the darkness into the light. He (saw) guided us to all that is good and warned us from all that is evil and gave us an eternal advice in his saying:
أوصيكم بتقوى الله عز وجل والسمع والطاعة وإن تأمر عليكم عبد فإنه من يعش منكم فسيرى اختلافا كثيرا، فعليكم بسنة الخلفاء الراشدين المهديين من بعدي، تمسكوا بها وعضوا عليها بالنواجذ، وإياكم ومحدثات الأمور فإن كل بدعة ضلالة
"I advise you to fear Allah (Azza wa Jal) and to hear and obey even if a slave ruled over you. The one who will live will witness many disagreements. So hold on to the sunnah (way) of the guided Khulafaa ar-Rashideen hold tightly onto it and ‘bite onto it' and beware of innovation in matters as every (bid'a) innovation is a dhalala(misguidance)." [Narrated by Ahmad, Ashab As-Sunan, corrected by Tirmizi, Al Hakim, Al Zahabi].
Huthaifah (ra) said,
إن الله تعالى بعث محمدا صلى الله عليه وسلم فدعا الناس من الضلالة إلى الهدى، ومن الكفر إلى الإيمان فاستجاب له من استجاب، فحيا بالحق من كان ميتا، ومات بالباطل من كان حيا، ثم ذهبت النبوة فكانت الخلافة على منهاجها، ثم تكون ملكا عاضا، من الناس من ينكر بقلبه ويده ولسانه أولئك استجابوا للحق، ومن الناس من ينكر بقلبه ولسانه كافا يده، فهذا ترك شعبة من الحق، ومنهم من ينكر بقلبه كافا يده ولسانه، فهذا ترك شعبتين من الحق، ومنهم من لا ينكر بقلبه ولا بيده ولا بلسانه، فذلك ميت الأحياء
"Allah (ta'ala) sent Muhammad sallalahu alaihi wassalam and he called people from misguidance to guidance and from Kufr to Iman, some accepted. The ones who were dead became alive by the Haqq (truth) and the one who was alive following batil (falsehood) was dead. Then the Prophethood's time passed and the Khilafah followed upon its method. Then the biting monarchy follows. From amongst the people there will be those who will reject it by the heart, the hand and the tongue, those have responded to the Haqq. And from amongst the people there are those who will reject it by the heart and tongue and not by the hand, those have abandoned part of the Haqq. And from amongst the people are those who will reject it by the heart alone and not by the hand, nor the tongue, those have abandoned two parts of the Haqq. And from amongst the people there are those who do not reject it, not by the heart, nor the hand nor the tongue, are those the living dead!"
I lived for many years and travelled extensively and met with Ulema throughout many countries searching for the right path and for the answer that leads to my happiness in the dunya and the Akhirah. I did not find that which quenches my thirst and lights my path.
But Allah Azza wa Jal willed for me to watch and listen to the program presented by Hizb ut Tahrir "Then it will be Khilafah". On that day I realized that any success and victory will only be achieved following this path which was shown to us by our Prophet (saw). So I rushed to them, to meet them. On that day I realized that Allah Azza wa jal has blessed me with two births, the first by my mother and the second is when Allah Azza wa jal bestowed upon me the honour of working with Hizb ut Tahrir to restore the Khilafah Rashida upon the method of the Prophethood.
This is my message to the Islamic Ummah, to those who lost the way to those who are confused to those who despaired, to the oppressed, I say to them this is the way.
And to the Ulema I say: Call to that which you were ordered to do by the Messenger of Allah so that this Ummah regains its pride and honour.
To the rulers of the Muslims I say: You have no excuse before Allah on the Day of Judgment, the day when He will ask you why did you not implement the Shar'i (Laws) of Allah?
((يَا أَيُّهَا الْإِنْسَانُ مَا غَرَّكَ بِرَبِّكَ الْكَرِيمِ * الَّذِي خَلَقَكَ فَسَوَّاكَ فَعَدَلَكَ * فِي أَيِّ صُورَةٍ مَا شَاءَ رَكَّبَكَ))
"O mankind, what has deceived you concerning your Lord, the Generous, * Who created you, proportioned you, and balanced you? * In whatever form He willed has He assembled you."
Who distracted you away from the Haqq to misguidance, and from light to darkness, and from the rule of Allah to the rule of taghoot?
So prepare an answer to the question, and develop the correct answer since the one who will question you is Allah. Did you not hear the saying of Allah (swt),
((فَلَا وَرَبِّكَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ حَتَّى يُحَكِّمُوكَ فِيمَا شَجَرَ بَيْنَهُمْ ثُمَّ لَا يَجِدُوا فِي أَنْفُسِهِمْ حَرَجًا مِمَّا قَضَيْتَ وَيُسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا))
"But no, by your Lord, they will not [truly] believe until they make you, [O Muhammad], judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves and then find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged and submit in [full, willing] submission."
And finally I wish to say:
In our company we will give security to the fearful.
We will recite to the dunya the Qur'an of our Lord.
Deaf are the ears of the dunya if it does not listen.
O you dunya shout and witness that we do not seek guidance other than that of Muhammad (saw).
I come today to carry to you the glad tidings that was delivered by our beloved Prophet (saw) when He said
"ثم تكون خلافة على منهاج النبوة"
"And then there will be Khilafah upon the method of the Prophethood."
I can see its light and beam. Then, all the masks will fall, and the darkness will disperse and the sun of the Khilafah will shine upon the earth and covers all that is covered by the sun light, in spite of the will of the disbelievers.
((وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ * بِنَصْرِ اللَّهِ يَنْصُرُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهْوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ ))
"On that day the believers will rejoice by the victory of Allah He Grants victory to whomever He Wills He is Alaziz Alrahim."
