With increased submission to the Qadaa (divine decree) of Allah ‘Azza Wa Jalla we convey the news of the martyrdom of a member of the Central Communications Committee of Hizb ut Tahrir in the Wilayah of Syria; the Shab Mahmoud Eidu Najar (Abu ‘Ubaadah Ash-Shaami), as the result of the bombing of the criminal and malicious jet pilots upon the besieged city of Halab (Aleppo) on Thursday corresponding to 22/09/2016.
Abu ‘Ubaadah Ash-Shaami was a burning torch and a candle that lit up the darkness of Jaahiliyah which the planes of spite put out over the people of Sham and their revolution. He, may Allah’s mercy be upon him, did not tire nor despair for the sake of ruling by the Shar’a of Allah (swt) and he gave it his life, leaving behind his family and relatives to be alongside his besieged brothers in Halab (Aleppo) for its sake. He was calling them to hold firm to the principles of their revolution and the ruling by their Deen, pleading from his Lord that his eyes may see the birth of the second rightly guided Khilafah (Caliphate) upon the methodology of the Prophethood. However, it was the will of Allah that he became a martyr at the hands of the tyrants in a barbaric bombing upon the city of Halab, we consider him as such (a martyr) and we do not seek to purify anyone before Allah.
May Allah’s mercy be upon you, dear Abu ‘Ubaadah and may He raise you with the prophets, truthful, martyrs and righteous, and how good is their company. We in Hizb ut Tahrir in the Wilayah of Syria make a covenant with Allah and we make a covenant with you after this to be trustworthy guards for Islam and to continue to proceed upon the method of the Messenger of Allah (saw) until Allah makes Islam prevail via the establishment of His State or we die on its path). At that time, we will hold to account those who killed you, killed the Muslims and violated their honours with a very harsh accounting: ﴿وَسَيَعْلَمُ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا أَيَّ مُنقَلَبٍ يَنقَلِبُونَ﴾ “And those who transgressed will come to know by what overturning they will be overturned” [Ash-Shu’araa: 227].﴿وَاللَّـهُ غَالِبٌ عَلَىٰ أَمْرِهِ وَلَـٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ﴾ “And Allah has full power and control over His Affairs, but most of men know not” [Yusuf: 21].
And we do not say except that which is pleasing to Allah: ﴿إِنَّا لِلَّـهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ﴾ “Verily to Allah do we belong and verily to Allah do we return” [Al-Baqarah: 156]. And there is no Power and no Might except in Allah Al-‘Aliy Al-‘Azheem.
