A New Turning Point in Western Economies?

Global stock markets have started the year badly (New York Stock Exchange down 8%, MSCI World Market Index down 10%, Japan down by 19%). While many will view these markets as little more than gambling tools as they do not involve direct responsibility and ownership in the same way that Islamic company structure dictates, nevertheless, hundreds of millions of people globally depend on these markets for their retirement wealth and pension funds. They have also become a barometer for the success of the economies in which these companies operate. Central planners view the success of stock and bond markets as key to long term stability and the viability of Capitalism. As a result the main US and European markets have established “plunge protection teams” who will invest government money to ensure day to day stability, and the ability to suspend markets if they fall too far too quickly. But when short term intervention in markets (which are supposed to be free to go up and down!) becomes co

Q&A: Salatul Istikhara

Question: Assalamu alaikum, I want to know what is Salatul Istikhara, and does the person who made Istikhara see something in his dream after performing the Istikhara? Please answer as soon as possible, Jazakoum Allah Khayran. From Joud Ridwan Ridwan Answer: Wa alaikoum l salam wa Rahmatu Allah wa Barakatuh, The Prophet ﷺ showed Salatul Istikhara via a thorough and adequate demonstration in a Hadith narrated by Bukhari and others on the authority of Jaber bin Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with both of them, he said: The Prophet of Allah ﷺ would teach us to pray for guidance in all matters, as he ﷺ used to teach us a chapter from the Quran, he ﷺ said: « إِذَا هَمَّ أَحَدُكُمْ بِالأَمْرِ، فَلْيَرْكَعْ رَكْعَتَيْنِ مِنْ غَيْرِ الفَرِيضَةِ، ثُمَّ لِيَقُلْ: اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْتَخِيرُكَ بِعِلْمِكَ وَأَسْتَقْدِرُكَ بِقُدْرَتِكَ، وَأَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ العَظِيمِ، فَإِنَّكَ تَقْدِرُ وَلاَ أَقْدِرُ، وَتَعْلَمُ وَلاَ أَعْلَمُ، وَأَنْتَ عَلَّامُ الغُيُوبِ، اللَّهُمَّ إِنْ

How the Islamic State would Rise - Sheikh Taqiuddin an-Nabhani

The following is a chapter from the English translation of the book, ' The Islamic State ' by Sheikh Taqiuddin an-Nabhani (rh). The strength of the Islamic thought coupled with its methodology would be sufficient to establish an Islamic State and to resume the Islamic way of life, provided that this thought is deeply rooted in the hearts and deeply embedded in the souls, and provided it materialised itself in the Muslims and became a living Islam working in all walks of life. However, despite all this, some colossal tasks have to be achieved before the existence of the State, and phenomenal efforts must be made in order to resume the Islamic way of life. Desire and optimism would not, therefore, be sufficient for the State to arise, nor would hope and enthusiasm be enough to secure the resumption of the Islamic way of life. The mother of all duties would be to duly assess these colossal obstacles which stand in the way of Islam in order to make their removal possible. It is

True Revival is Impossible Without Establishing an Islamic State

The following is the translation of an Arabic leaflet from the time of Sheikh Taqiuddin an-Nabhani (rh). How Will the Islamic Ummah Revive Today? Revival is the intellectual elevation. While the economical elevation is not a revival. An evidence of that is Kuwait  which is economically much more elevated than some of the European states like  Sweden ,  Holland and  Belgium : Yet Sweden,  Holland  and  Belgium  are elevated and  Kuwait  is not. The ethical elevation is not a revival as well. An evidence of that is that Madina today is superior to any country in the world ethically (morally), yet it is not elevated. Thus revival is the intellectual elevation. But this revival could be true (proper) revival or untrue. So  America ,  Europe  and  Russia  are revived countries, but their revival is incorrect. Because it is not established on a spiritual foundation, since the true revival is the intellectual revival which is established on the spiritual foundation. If the intelle

Syria Negotiations Represent Selling Martyrs’ Blood in the Market of the Disbelieving West

In accordance to what was agreed upon in the Vienna conference America is working to complete the chapters of the conspiracy. So after summoning those personalities and bodies that please it in addition to some of the leaderships of the groups to the Riyadh conference and after what came out of this conference in terms of a negotiating body that took it upon its shoulders to select a delegation which will sell the blood of the Muslims and their honours within the Market of the disbelieving West; with the direction of the American middleman Staffan De Mistura and under the supervision of the UN, after that, America is working to dilute the crime and divert the Muslims from the real danger represented in sitting with the child killer and violator of honours upon the same table. The cards have been shuffled and the attention has been directed towards the participating delegation so that their media machine can give the picture that the area of difference revolves around who will particip

Proceeding Upon the Path of Revival by Sheikh Haafizh Saalih (rh)

The following is the English translation of a chapter from the book An-Nahdah (Revival) written by Sheikh Haafizh Saalih (Fareed Muhammad Saalih Al-Ghaanim) Raheemullah, a prominent Member of Hizb ut-Tahrir during his many years in the da'wah, may the mercy of Allah (swt) be upon him: Proceeding upon the path of revival: We have stated: It is not possible to bring the revival except after the human has understood the meaning or purpose of his existence within the life so that he is able to form the correct concepts about it. In other words: Until he is able to organise his relationships, define his conduct and satisfy his hungers and urges (organic needs and instincts). This must inevitably take place with other than him from amongst the people, other living creatures and the material things that he requires in life. This is because he is a human who lives amongst other people and other nations from amongst the different creations upon this earth within this vast universe.
