Tafseer Al-Baqara: 6-7 | Sheikh 'Ata Abu Al-Rashtah

Extract from the book 'At-Tayseer Fee Usool At-Tafseer' written by the Ameer of Hizb ut Tahrir, Sheikh Ata Ibn Khalil Abu Al-Rashtah. إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ سَوَاءٌ عَلَيْهِمْ أَأَنذَرْتَهُمْ أَمْ لَمْ تُنذِرْهُمْ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ 6 خَتَمَ اللّهُ عَلَى قُلُوبِهمْ وَعَلَى سَمْعِهِمْ وَعَلَى أَبْصَارِهِمْ غِشَاوَةٌ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عظِيمٌ 7 . 6. “Verily, those who disbelieve, it is the same to them whether you warn them or do not warn them, they will not believe. 7. Allah has set a seal on their hearts and on their hearings, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be a great torment.” After Allah had explained in the previous verses that the book is from Allah in truth and that there is no doubt in it, and after He (سبحانه) explained the status of those who are guided by it and have taqwa, that they are from the successful ones. Then He (سبحانه) explained in these two verses the situation of those who reject; that warning does not benefit them, as Allah has sealed

Rebel Discord and the Syrian Uprising

  By  Ali Harfouch  & Adnan Khan   As the world's powers and some Syrian rebel groups gather for the Geneva 2 talks, the Syrian revolution over recent months has witnessed an increase in rebel infighting. The progress of Jabhat an-Nusra and the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (the Levant), or ISIS, has received global attention as they conducted a number of daring raids, making significant contributions in the rebels’ successes against Assad’s forces. The situation is changing rapidly in northern Syria as rebel fighters launched widespread attacks against ISIS in dozens of locations in Idlib and Aleppo provinces after ISIS stormed the town of Atareb in Aleppo. This led to widespread protests across Syria against ISIS, which in turn led to violent clashes across northeastern Syria.[1] Whilst tensions do exist between some rebel groups, this trend represents an ominous moment in the uprising that has the potential to derail two years of progress. The reasons for this can be

Explanation of At-Takattul al-Hizbi (Party Structuring) - Part 5

Sharh At-Takattul Al-Hizbi  (Explanation of  Party Structuring ) by  Sheikh Mohammad Al-Hawarey  (rh).  This is a translation from Sheikh Hawarey's explanation of the unique book by Sheikh Taqiuddin an-Nabhani.  To access Part 4 click here As for the Taaqah Islaamiyah (Islamic power/potency) and what it contains in terms of Ta’theer (effect/influence),  At-Tawassu’ (expansion) and Intishaar (spreading) then it is as follows: From the angle of Ta’theer (influence) we have already explained that it only attained and occurs from the embodying (full comprehension) of the realities, incidents and things in a manner that stirs the emotions of the one listening. It increases his attention and as such is affected by what he hears. Said in another way the emotions and feelings are addressed first and then the Hukm (ruling) is brought upon the reality that has already been addressed by way of the emotions and feelings attached to the reality. So when the bliss of Jan

Explanation of At-Takattul al-Hizbi (Party Structuring) - Part 4

Sharh At-Takattul Al-Hizbi  (Explanation of  Party Structuring ) by  Sheikh Mohammad Al-Hawarey  (rh).  This is a translation from Sheikh Hawarey's explanation of the unique book by Sheikh Taqiuddin an-Nabhani.  To access part 3 click here What we believe: We believe that the fundamental thought for revival is the ideology alone that combines the Fikrah and the Tareeqah together and that this Mabda’ (ideology) is Islaam. When we say Nahdah (revival) we intend only by this statement the intellectual elevation. In order to distinguish between thoughts it is necessary to define the description of the elevated thought so that it can become known. As such we say that the elevated thought is the thought that is distinguished by two attributes: Al-‘Umq (depth) and Ash-Shumool (comprehensiveness). Otherwise the thought would be low, declined or shallow. So for the Fikr (thought) to be elevated it is necessary for it to be deep in terms of the origin of things/matt

Obituary of a Dawah Carrier | Wilayah of Jordan

Obituary of a Dawah Carrier (Translated) H. 16 Rabi' I 1435 M. 2014/01/17 No: 08/35 (مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَيْهِ فَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ قَضَى نَحْبَهُ وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ يَنْتَظِرُ وَمَا بَدَّلُوا تَبْدِيلاً) "Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah. Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration." [Al-Ahzab: 23] Hizb ut Tahrir in the Wilayah of Jordan mourns to the Ummah one of their Shabab from the first prosperous generation: Mr. Ameen Mustafa at-Tum Al-Otaibi (Abu Ammar) He passed away yesterday at the age of 80 years old. He - Rahimahullah - spent his life carrying the Dawah, devoted to the work of resuming the Islamic way of life in the Khilafah State, steadfast and defiant against the injustice of the oppressors. He is the one who shouted during one of his trials before t

Oh Dar Al-Ifta Al-Missriyah! Democracy is a Kufr System

The Dar Al-Ifta Al-Missriyah still exercises the role that was drawn for it since its inception in 1895, if the Fatwa is related to a political matter or a matter that impacts the political reality of the ruling regime, then they are inevitably going to be fatwas that satisfies the Sultan, or if they are requested by him then they will add a spurious legitimacy to his authority, even if that leads to contradiction of the fatwas with each other, for example, a fatwa from the Dar Al-Ifta Al-Missriyah in 1956 that prohibits the peace with the Jews the usurpers of the land of Palestine unless they return that which was taken and seized by them, and a fatwa from the Dar Al-Ifta Al-Missriyah in the year 1979 that permits the peace between Egypt and the Jews and what is resulting from that should be seen as accurate. In a statement issued by the Dar Al-Ifta Al-Missriyah on Friday, 10/01/2014 CE said,  "It is not necessary to call for democratic rule as the rule of the people as a
