Announcement of Khilafah by ISIS: Real Establishment of Khilafah will change the world order

After the announcement of Khilafah by ISIS in Iraq, Muslims around the world are in dilemma whether Khilafah state actually has been established or this announcement is just rhetoric. Muslims must know that any group which has to announce the Khilafah in a place is obligated to follow the Methodology of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم in it, and from it is that this group should have the obvious visible authority on the place, where it can maintain security internally and externally, and that this place should have what constitutes a state where the Khilafah is announced....This is what the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم performed when he established the Islamic State in Madina Al-Munawarra: the authority was with the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and the internal and external security was with Muslims and they had what constitutes a state in the surrounding area.
The group that has announced the Caliphate has neither authority, in either Syria or Iraq, nor does it has the capability to maintain peace and security internally or externally, they have given allegiance to a Khalifah who cannot even publicly declare himself, rather his situation has remained secretive, similar to the situation that was before the state was announced and this is contradictory to what the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم did. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم was permitted to hide in the Thawr Cave before the state was formed, but after the state was formed, he took care of the affairs of the people, led the armies, judged in disputes and sent messengers to others and accepted them from others publicly, thus his situation before and after the state was different. This is why the announcement of the group about the state is mere rhetoric and has no weight in it.
The Khilafah is a state of magnificence, and the Shariah has stipulated the methodology to establish it and the manner in how the rules would be extracted for ruling, politics, economics and international relations....and it will not be a mere announcement in name only, which is broadcast on the websites or print and televised media, rather it will be an event that will shake the whole world, and its roots will be strong and established on the ground, its authority will maintain peace and security internally and externally on that land and it will implement Islam within it and will carry Islam to the world through Dawah and Jihad.
It is very unfortunate that this announcement will create negative consequences with regard to the idea of Khilafah among the simple minded people. An announcement without any real substance will erode the significance of Khilafah in the hearts of simple people and it will remain no more than a beautiful word, uttered with pride but devoid of any substance. At this time as the establishment of the Khilafah comes closer than ever before and the Muslims are waiting for it eagerly, and they are seeing Hizb ut-Tahrir progressing in the path of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم in how he established the state in Madina al Munawarra... This announcement was made, for the purpose of giving a picture of the Khilafah as if it were a police state in the minds of the simple minded people...
So every Muslim group must work for the establishment of Khilafah in order to fulfill the command of its establishment by following the method of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. And it can only be established by following the methodology of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم.

Assalamu Alaikum.

Going by your standards Medina, at the time of establishment of Islamic State , was not secure both internally and externally. The superpowers of that time Persian and Roman Empires were much more powerful that USA and western powers are at this time. Yet Prophet S.A.W. established the state and while doing so he was divinely guided.
Regarding the methodology you are taking , that is derived by HT based on their understanding of text.
Regarding security , let us for sake of argument assume HT gets nusra from Pakistan Army. The immediate threats it has from India , China , Russia and yes 'Islamic' republic of Iran ..all nuclear armed countries and whose armies are much more powerful and bigger than Pakistan Army. And then USA and other western powers who already have presence around this land and can strike at will as they have demonstrated. Then how can you accept nusrah from such state that is vulnerable ?
So again the issue here is your standards of assessing based on various factors can differ with other organizations who have their own standards of measuring security. Why should they agree with your standards which anyway are not absolute.
You always say Khilafah will bring security and at same time you say without security there cannot be Khilafah.
While the contribution of HT in this matter is immense but i would like to remind you here HT is not the only organization that championed this cause as HT claims. Much prior 1953 , there were various groups who have given their blood and sweat to this cause.
To summarize , HT has its view so do the other groups and their view also comes from understanding of that text .
