O Muslims let this be the Last Month of Ramadan We have Without a Khaleefah!
Praise is to Allah سبحانه وتعالى who made us witness the month of Ramadan, its beginning is mercy, its middle is forgiveness and its end is protection from Hellfire. Ninety-three months of Ramadan have passed without a Khaleefah. Here we are welcoming another new Ramadan and we are divided and torn. The Muslim Ummah since the destruction of the Khilafah in 1342 AH has never fasted the month on the same day. When we had our Khilafah, we fasted on the same day and celebrated Eid on the same day. Since then we have been falling from one disaster to another and from one calamity to another, we became torn and dispersed, and lost our strength, because we lost our State.
Our statistical number exceeded a billion Muslims, yet we are like the foam on the sea. Our Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم saying matches our reality:
«يُوشِكُ أَنْ تَدَاعَى عَلَيْكُمْ الْأُمَمُ مِنْ كُلِّ أُفُقٍ كَمَا تَدَاعَى الْأَكَلَةُ عَلَى قَصْعَتِهَا»، قَالَ: قُلْنَا: يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ، أَمِنْ قِلَّةٍ بِنَا يَوْمَئِذٍ؟ قَالَ: «أَنْتُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ كَثِيرٌ، وَلَكِنْ تَكُونُونَ غُثَاءً كَغُثَاءِ السَّيْلِ، يَنْتَزِعُ الْمَهَابَةَ مِنْ قُلُوبِ عَدُوِّكُمْ، وَيَجْعَلُ فِي قُلُوبِكُمْ الْوَهْنَ»، قَالَ: قُلْنَا: وَمَا الْوَهْنُ؟ قَالَ: «حُبُّ الحَيَاةِ، وَكَرَاهِيَةُ الْمَوْتِ»
"The people will soon summon one another to attack you as people when eating invite others to share their dish." Someone asked: Will that be because of our small numbers at that time? He replied: "No, you will be numerous at that time: but you will be like the foam on the sea that is carried down by a torrent, and Allah will remove the fear of you from the breasts of your enemy and place wahn in your hearts." Someone asked, "What is wahn (enervation)". Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him), He replied: "Love of the world and dislike of death." [Ahmad Bin Hanbal]
This is how the Crusaders states headed by America and England gathered to attack the Muslim lands. They occupied its blessed land, and killed its Muslim sons, they stomped their feet on the sanctities and the holy places of the Muslims, and looted their wealth, and they were undeterred; but on the contrary, the rulers of the Muslims served continuously the policies of those colonial Kuffar. They worked to tarnish the revolutions that sprung against the oppressive dictatorial regimes, and were rivaling to betray Muslim blood in Syria and Iraq.
O Muslims! You know that Ramadan is the month of the Qur'an, and Ramadhan is the month of mercy, forgiveness, baraka, and protection from Hellfire, consequently we must increase our Nawafil in addition to the obligations, and to resort to repentance and seeking forgiveness, and to bow and prostrate accurately. You know also that Ramadan is the month of Jihad and conquests, and that establishing the rightly guided Khilafah is a great obligation; by it other obligations are fulfilled. Khilafah is the crown of obligations, by it alone the banner of jihad is raised high, and by it alone life, honor, and wealth are protected. By it alone Muslims will regain their past glory, status, and esteem. Therefore we must rush to re-establish the rightly guided Khilafah state in this noble month, not fearing any criticism.
O Muslims! Enough waiting, it is time for you to work for the establishment of the Khilafah. Work so that this is the last Ramadan without a Khaleefah, and for the return of our Ramadan as it used to be: the month of victory and conquests; this matter is easy to Allah سبحانه وتعالى. In this blessed occasion of the month of Ramadan, we in Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah of Turkey, wish you and the Ummah a Ramadan Mubarak, and ask Allah سبحانه وتعالى to make this month the month victory for the re-establishment of the rightly guided Khilafah, and to bestow upon the entire Muslim Ummah the good in abundance.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اسْتَجِيبُواْ لِلّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُم لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ
"O you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life. And know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart and that to Him you will be gathered"
