Introduction to an Islamic Constitution for Syria and the Muslim world - Articles 5 & 6

The following is the translation of an article from the book by  Hizb ut-Tahrir  entitled 'Introduction to the Constitution and the necessary evidences for it' which is the explanation of its draft constitution for the Khilafah state. This draft translation is from the  second edition  published in 2009 which was updated from the original published in 1963.  Numerous brigades in Syria  have agreed to the implementation of this constitution after the removal of the corrupt system that has brutally suppressed the people for decades.  Article 5 All citizens of the Islamic State enjoy the Shari’ah rights and duties. Article 6 The State is forbidden to discriminate at all between the individuals in terms of ruling, judiciary and management of affairs or their like. Rather, every individual should be treated equally regardless of race, Deen , colour or anything else. These two articles have been drafted in order to explain the rules pertaining to those who carry t

Those who stall the Da'wah Carriers in Uzbekistan Insist on Irrigating the Tree of Islam from their Blood!

A martyr was elevated to his Lord, Bidhnillah, at the age of 35, a native from the city of Tashkent: Brother Samar ad-Din Siraj ad-Dinovic, who was working within the ranks of Hizb ut Tahrir to eradicate the Karimov regime, the tyrant of Uzbekistan, and for the establishment of the second rightly guided Khilafah on the method of Prophethood. Samar ad-Din (Rahimahullah) stood out since he was young, through his seriousness, diligence and intelligence. He was outstanding among his peers throughout the stages of his school education, just as in the stages of his university education. He graduated from the Imam al-Bukhari University in the city of Tashkent with excellent honors. Then through his intelligence and sensitivity he realized the corruption of the system and its injustice, which has befallen the Muslims in Uzbekistan. This prompted him to join the ranks of the Hizb, and work with it to resume the Islamic way of life, not fearing anyone but Allah, and without fear of the pr

Q&A: Recent US Debt Crisis

There is a heated conflict happening in the United States between the Obama administration and the Democratic Party on one side, and the rival Republican Party on the other side, about the budget and the raising of the debt ceiling that Obama's government is insisting on. The crisis has intensified with the failure to approve the budget which resulted in hundreds of thousands of federal government employees' work being disrupted in what is being called a short leave without pay. And the question: How can this happen in America, the chief of the capitalist democratic states? What is this democracy, which they claim does justice to people, that withholds wages not due to their fault or any deficiency in their work done? And how is the government insistent on raising the debt ceiling, instead of being insistent on lowering the debt? We would like this to be clarified in a way that can be easily understood, and may Allah سبحانه وتعالى reward you. Answer: The answers t

Q&A: Regarding Raising of the Voice at Parents

What is the ruling on becoming angry with the parents and raising one's voice at them? Bearing in mind that the parents have caused the son many problems in which he had to resolve; instead of looking after him while he was young, he is the one who had to resolve their stances and actions. Is getting angry and raising the voice at the parents sometimes considered from "Uqooq al walidain" (being undutiful to the parents) and unable to achieve success "Tawfeeq" in life? From: Lamis Sh Answer: Wa Alaikumu Assalaam wa Rahmatullah wa Barakaatuhu , Allah سبحانه وتعالى made it prohibited to say "uff" to the parents. How about getting angry at them and raising the voice at them? Allah سبحانه وتعالى says: وَقَضَى رَبُّكَ أَلَّا تَعْبُدُوا إِلَّا إِيَّاهُ وَبِالْوَالِدَيْنِ إِحْسَانًا إِمَّا يَبْلُغَنَّ عِنْدَكَ الْكِبَرَ أَحَدُهُمَا أَوْ كِلَاهُمَا فَلَا تَقُلْ لَهُمَا أُفٍّ وَلَا تَنْهَرْهُمَا وَقُلْ لَهُمَا قَوْلًا كَرِيمًا "And your

Q&A: Departure (Al-Ifadah) during Hajj

I stopped on the saying of Allah سبحانه وتعالى in Surah al-Baqarah: فَإِذَا أَفَضْتُمْ مِنْ عَرَفَاتٍ فَاذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ عِنْدَ الْمَشْعَرِ الْحَرَامِ وَاذْكُرُوهُ كَمَا هَدَاكُمْ وَإِنْ كُنْتُمْ مِنْ قَبْلِهِ لَمِنَ الضَّالِّينَ * ثُمَّ أَفِيضُوا مِنْ حَيْثُ أَفَاضَ النَّاسُ وَاسْتَغْفِرُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ "But when you depart from 'Arafat, remember Allah at al-Mash'ar al-Haram. And remember Him, as He has guided you, for indeed, you were before that among those astray. Then depart from the place from where [all] the people depart and ask forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful." (Al-Baqarah, 2:198-199) The first Ayah: فَإِذَا أَفَضْتُمْ مِنْ عَرَفَاتٍ فَاذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ عِنْدَ الْمَشْعَرِ الْحَرَامِ "But when you depart from 'Arafat, remember Allah at al- Mash'ar al-Haram." (Al-Baqarah, 2:198) concerns the departure from 'Arafat to al-Mash'ar al-Haram, i.e. Muzdalifa. Whereas
