The Mother of Muhammad Ali said, ‘Give your life for Khilafah my son.'

In our region, lands of Islam, there lived a Muslimah whom the young and old, Muslims and non-Muslims, all alike, fondly called by her Kunya 'Bi-Amma'. If you were to ask the elderly whether they knew of 'Bi-Amma', you would receive the reply:  "yes, we used to call the mother of Shaukat Ali and Muhammad Ali as 'Bi-Amma'."  Thus she was the mother of the leaders of the Khilafah movement. Abadi Bano Begum was the native of Rampur, Utter Pradesh, born in 1852, of a generation that inherited 1,000 years of Muslim ruling within Indian Subcontinent, interrupted by the British Occupation which began in 1757. In 1857 when Muslims rebelled against the unlawful rule of the British, she was just five years old. Because of that she could not be properly educated in school and college, but was highly cultured in Islam with chaste manners, which is the best of all knowledge. She cherished great love for Allah and His Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم. She w

Sisi’s call to the Egyptians - a cover to bloodily break up the protests

The following is a translation of the Arabic statement.  Press Statement from the Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir Wilayah of Egypt Sisi’s call for the Egyptians to descend upon the streets is an attempt to attain ‘Popular consent’ as a cover to bloodily break up the protests. In a speech given on Wednesday 24/07/2013 on the occasion of the graduation ceremony of two groups from the Navy and Air colleges in the Cairo Governorate, General Abdul Fattah As-Sisi said: “I request from the Egyptians on the day of Jumu’ah, from all of the honorable trustworthy Egyptians, to descend upon the streets to give me the delegated authority to end the potential of violence and terrorism!”. And these words carry serious and dangerous connotations that must be made clear: 1) It displays in a clear way that everything that has occurred since the appointment of a temporary President and Prime Minister was only done to provide decoration to the coup that occurred on 30/6. And that the rea

Q&A: Does Imaan Increase and Decrease? | Sheikh Ata’ Abu Rashtah

As-Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakaatuhu , I would kindly request an answer from you to my question which is: 'Does the Imaan increase and decrease?' And I would like to add to this a second follow on question which is: 'Does the Imaan vary between one believer and another?' From Al-Waathiq BiNasrullah Answer: Wa Alaikum us Salaam Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakaatuhu 1. Imaan is Tasdeeq Al-Jaazim (decisive belief) that conforms to reality and emanates from evidence. Tasdeeq Al-Jaazim means the definite conviction (Qanaa'ah Al-Qaati'ah) that does not allow within it the possibility of doubt or can doubt find a way into it. This is the linguistic meaning itself for Imaan i.e. At-Tasdeeq Al-Jaazim. And conforming to the reality means that the sensed realities affirm it and do not contradict with it. And in order for it to be Tasdeeq Jaazim and in conformity with reality it is necessary for it to come from; and evidence that is definite in terms of

Q&A: Hizb ut Tahrir and the Syrian Revolution | Sheikh Ata’ Abu Rashtah

Greetings to the Scholar Ata Bin Khalil Abu Al-Rashtah from Mamoun Shehadeh, journalist and political analyst I would like to ask you, what were the motivating factors that made Hizb ut Tahrir involve itself in the Syrian revolution and why did it not do so in other places? From Mamoun Shehadeh Answer: Wa Alaikum us Salaam Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakaatuhu Our work my dear brother is the same and it does not change in every place that we are able to work. Our work is carrying the Dawah for the resumption of the Islamic way of life via the establishment of the Rightly Guided Khilafah in accordance to the methodology that the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم demonstrated to us from the time that he was tasked with the mission in Makkah Al-Mukarramah until he established the State in Al-Madeenah Al-Munawarah. So we make contact with the Ummah to call them to the Haqq (truth) and that the Khilafah is a great Fard that it is obligatory for them to work towards. We interact w

Q&A: What made America turn against Morsi?

America is still reluctant to describe what happened in Egypt as a coup. Yet it encourages the roadmap announced by the new Interim authority. On 11/7/2013 reported a spokeswoman for the U.S. State Department saying:  "The roadmap drawn by the Provisional Authority for the next stage is encouraging" . Jen Psaki, the spokeswoman for the U.S. State Department, said that the rule of President Mohamed Morsi was "not democratic", as stated in the (Egyptian seventh day on 12/7/2013). AlJazeera.Net also reported White House spokesman Jay Carney telling reporters on 11/07/2013  "We assess how the authorities behave and how they deal with the current situation",  in reference to the announcement on 3/7 2013 given by the defence minister and the army commander in Egypt Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, in removing Mohamed Morsi, and the appointment of Adli Mansour, President of the Constitutional Court as a transitional president. So what made America t

Q&A: The One Who Eats Ribaa (Usury) | Sheikh Ata’ Abu Rashtah

Assalaamu Alaikum , If you permit I would like to ask about the one who commits the act of Ribaa (usury) and if he will be in the fires of Hell forever? It relates to the Tafseer of Aayah 275 as found in the book At-Tayseer Fee Usool At-Tafseer. Thank you Brother. From Adi Victoria from the Indonesian town of Samarinda. Answer: Wa Alaikumu Assalaam Wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuhu, There are two kinds of people who deal with Ribaa (usury): First: The kind who believes that Ribaa is Haram and despite this still deals with Ribaa. So this is someone who commits a major sin. He receives a punishment in this life from the Khilafah state and if he is not punished with the Shari'ah punishment in this life then he will have the punishment of the Hereafter and so he will enter the fire but not forever as long as he did not make the Ribaa as halal. So this is the case where he believes that Ribaa is Haraam but still perpetrated that act of disobedience (Ma'siyah). And the
