PALESTINE: Two State Solution is No Solution

The passing of a motion by British MPs, with 274 votes in favour to 12 against has caused a wave of excitement amongst some Muslim and pro-Palestinian supporters. With claims that this is recognition of the Palestinian right to self-determination, or that the international community and Britain specifically is beginning to take some responsibility for the legacy it left behind in the Middle East. Demonstrated by the criticism levelled by MPs at Israel during the House of Commons debate, especially for its settlement policies We need to question is this non-binding vote in which less than half of MP’s took part in, really the  “symbolic” day and a stepping stone towards Palestinian liberation? Friends of Israel The claim that Britain is at last taking some responsibility for the historic wrongs it had committed against the Palestinian people, is exaggerated. The political parties and their MPs who voted for the motion are supportive of Israel and will continue to do so. I

Q&A: Riba Money after Khilafah

Question: Assalamu alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh , A question from the book, The Institutions of State in the Khilafah (in Ruling and Administration) regarding money of Riba (usury) after the establishment of the Khalifah state of giving its capital to its owners ... Question: What we will do with the money of Riba? Is it permissible for the state to confiscate it and invest it? Is the cash that comes from the property of Riba as banknotes is haram in itself, or is it due to the action? From Safeer Al-Khilafah Answer: Wa Alaikum Assalam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh, 1- The answer to your question, "What we will do with money of Riba", is found in the book The Funds in the Khilafah State (Al-Amwal), where it explained how the state deals with money acquired illegally such as illicit money (Mal al-Ghulul), Riba and gambling ... etc. It came under the chapter titled: "Illicit Money from the Rulers or Civil Servants, Money acquired Illegitimately and

The Fikrah (thought) and the Tareeqah (method)

The following is a translation from the archives.  The Tareeqah represents the Ahkaam Ash-Shar'iyah which explains the manner of implementing the Aqeedah and the manner of implementing the Ahkaam Ash-Shar'iyah. Allah (swt) has commanded Imaan  in Waajib Al-Wujood (whose existence is obligatory) and He is Allah, and Imaan in the Prophethood of Muhammad (saw) whilst He (swt) forbade apostatizing from Islaam and commanded carrying the Islamic Da'wah to the world. Therefore the Ahkaam (rulings) which explain the manner of implementing these commands and prohibitions are from the Tareeqah (method) and they include for example the ruling for the Murtadd (apostate), the Ahkaam of Al-Jihaad and the Ahkaam relating to the Arab Mushrikeen (polytheists) and non-Arabs etc… And Allah (swt) has commanded chastity whilst forbidding Zinaa (fornication and adultery), and He has commanded the protection of the private property and forbidden thievery (as-Saraqah), and He (swt) has commanded

General guidelines in relation to the obligation of accounting the rulers

The following is a translation from an Arabic leaflet.  1) It is noticeable that the Ummah is completely separate from the State i.e. from the rulers, and that the relationship between the masses and the rulers represents  a relationship of two different groups where there is no relationship between the subjects and the State. In addition to that and beyond the fact that it is a relationship between two different groups it is also a relationship based upon hatred, opposition and contradiction in which there exists no rapprochement or anything that suggests that rapprochement or bringing them together is even possible in the future. This reality is what weakens the Ummah's entity in addition to weakening the State entity as well. This is because a herd (subjects) in the absence of a shepherd (a caretaker) from her would represent a flimsy building and structure. The State without subjects who stand as one row behind her would have a flimsy and weak existence which could be removed w

Q&A: The Islamic Nafsiyah, aware obedience and human behaviour

The following is a translation from the Q&A archives: Answers to questions: The Islamic Nafsiyah, aware obedience and human behaviour. The Nafsiyah: The Islamic Nafsiyah is where the inclination (mayl) for things and actions is built upon the basis of Islaam. Therefore when passing judgement  upon a particular person in respect to him possessing an Islamic Nafsiyah or not, if that person had an aversion to Islaam in terms of his inclinations towards things and actions then it could be judged that he does not possess an Islamic Nafsiyah. However if that person made his inclinations (muyool) towards things and towards actions built upon the basis of Islaam and yet there were gaps existing within him that occurred from him on some occasions like if he was to not pray Fajr before the rising of the sun due to sleep and then made Qadaa for it, or if he glanced at a woman and took delight in that glance extending and repeating it but then regretted that and pulled himself away or if he

Q&A: Is the work to establish the Islamic State limited to the Arab countries only?

Question: As-Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakaatuhu I pray that Allah grant you success and bless us with the victory by your hands our Ameer, soon Inshallah, this matter belongs to Allah Alone, and we bear witness you are the best successor to the best predecessors In the book: Concepts of Hizb ut Tahrir on page 73 (English version) it mentions: "Carrying the Islamic da'wah and the political struggle for its cause can be undertaken only in the society which the party has defined as its area for activity (majal).Hizb ut-Tahrir considers the society in all the Islamic lands to be one society because its entire cause lies in one case, Islam. However it takes the Arab lands that are a part of the Islamic Lands as a starting point. It considers the establishment of an Islamic state in the Arab countries as a nucleus for the Islamic state as a natural step." It was also mentioned in the book: Structuring of a Party on pages 6 - 7: "Therefore, it is

Q&A: Recent Developments in Yemen

Question: The recent developments in Yemen were ambiguous to me, particularly the signing of the Peace and National Partnership Agreement on 21/09/2014, as though these developments have shuffled the papers... How were the Houthis able to reach Sanaa and lead its power and influence without effective resistance from the authorities? Does it imply that the influence of the British in Yemen has ended, and America that supports the Houthis has become the influential initiator in Yemen or is it the sharing of influence? Please clarify these matters, May Allah reward you with goodness. Answer: To clarify the answer we will review the following issues: 1. The influence of the British in Yemen has settled in recent decades, especially since Ali Saleh came to power in 1978, where he has trimmed, rather clipped, the wings of American influence in Yemen, and pursued its agents and followers, and the effective political class in Yemen became almost exclusive to the British and its a
