Review of Book: Methodology of the Quran to Carry Dawah by Sheikh Hafez Saleh

In this concise work, Sheikh Haafidh Saleh (r) defines what the Qur’an is in Islam and the angles that past ‘ulemaa viewed it from, whether from the perspective of balaaghah, fiqh, theology, etc. Due to the presence/living under the Islamic state in the past, it was irrelevant for these ‘ulemaa to view the Makki suwar and phase of the seerah from the legislative manner of establishing a state. This would have merely been theoretical in previous centuries, which is why it is rare to find reference to the Quranic methodology and blueprint for societal change today. As our current reality exhibits, this has now shifted from being theory to becoming a necessity. Before explaining the Quranic methodology, the sheikh explains some of the details with regards as to why different opinions may exist amongst Muslims e.g. some texts may carry more than one meaning. Another important subject within this is when he defines the valid scope of difference of opinion in Islam and gives examples fo

Tafseer Al-Baqarah (2: 153-157)

From the Book, Introduction to the Tafseer of the Quran , by the Ameer of Hizb ut Tahrir, the eminent jurist and statesman, Sheikh Ata Bin Khalil Abu Al-Rashtah: ﴿ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَعِينُوا بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلاَةِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَ الصَّابِرِينَ * وَلاَ تَقُولُوا لِمَنْ يُقْتَلُ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ أَمْوَاتٌ بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ وَلَكِنْ لاَ تَشْعُرُونَ * وَلَنَبْلُوَنَّكُمْ بِشَيْءٍ مِنْ الْخَوْفِ وَالْجُوعِ وَنَقْصٍ مِنْ الأَمْوالِ وَالأَنفُسِِ وَالثَّمَرَاتِ وَبَشِّرْ الصَّابِرِينَ * الَّذِينَ إِذَا أَصَابَتْهُمْ مُصِيبَةٌ قَالُوا إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ * أُوْلَئِكَ عَلَيْهِمْ صَلَوَاتٌ مِنْ رَبِّهِمْ وَرَحْمَةٌ وَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمْ الْمُهْتَدُونَ ﴾ “O you who have believed, seek help through patience and prayer. "Indeed, Allah is with the patient." (153) "And do not say about those who are killed in the way of Allah, "They are dead." Rather, they are alive, but you perceive [it] not." (154) "And We will sur

International Trends of the coming US Administration

President elect Donald Trump outlined policies that could change international relations significantly, and developments in the US Senate between the 10 th and 13 th of January, including open investigative sessions as part of the procedure for approving Trump’s nominees for his new cabinet have shed light on future relations with Russia, China, Mexico and the Middle East. Under Trump, the US will give Russia a new role in international affairs in the fight against Islamic extremism. Trump told the Wall Street Journal on the 13 th January that newly-imposed sanctions on Russia could be lifted: "If you get along and if Russia is really helping us, why would anybody have sanctions if somebody's doing some really great things?" Trump’s nominee for secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, told the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the 11 th of January that, “while Russia seeks respect and relevance on the global stage, its recent activities have disregarded America’s

Trump’s Crusade against Islam is Set to Gather Pace

News: On February 4th 2017, US authorities rolled back a controversial travel ban on people from seven Muslim countries after a judge suspended it. The state department said it was reversing the cancellation of visas, 60,000 of which were revoked after President Donald Trump's order. Will this end Trump’s negative policies towards the Muslim world? Comment What is outrageous is not the ban in itself, but the worldwide protests that failed to condemn America’s bombing of Muslim countries. America’s invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, military forays into Pakistan, Somalia, Libya and Yemen, dismemberment of Sudan, sanctions imposed on Iran and support for Assad to destroy the Syrian people has created the largest refugee crisis witnessed in modern times.     Instead of exposing America’s crimes against the Muslim world, the neoliberal elite that had orchestrated the global public outcry against Trump was careful not to invoke condemnation of endless Western interference in

The Future of US-Russia Relations

As President Obama prepares to leave the White House on the 20 th January 2017, the future of US-Russia relations is in turmoil. President-elect Trump has called for friendly relations with Russia, while outgoing President Obama raised tensions by announcing the expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats on the 29 th December, 2016. This follows reports from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that Russia conducted cyber attacks against the US, which the CIA claimed were intended to influence the election in Trump’s favor. Democrat Senator Amy Klobuchar, told the BBC that the Russian hacking: "is not just about American democracy, it's about all democracies … for the US just to roll over and to let this happen with no response would have been a huge mistake." Republican Senator John McCain said: "We have to make sure that there is a price to pay, so that we can perhaps persuade the Russians to stop these kind of attacks on ou

Q&A:The Political Situation in Gambia (Translated)

Bismillah Al-Rahman Al-Raheem Q&A:The Political Situation in  Gambia  (Translated) Question: We would like the party to give attention to Muslim issues in Africa, as it does with other Muslim issues; as soon as an event occurs, a publication is issued within a day or two ... but regarding Gambia, for example, nothing has been issued about the events there so far, although it lasted for almost two months, so we request a clarification of  what took place there. Furthermore, why do West African countries show this tremendous support to the new president Adama_arrow ? Why was there strong pressure on the former president to step down from power? Is his withdrawal from the ICC or naming of the Republic of Gambia as Islamic Gambia related (to the events)? Especially since the new president said on a press conference on 28/01/2017 in the capital Banjul: "that he will keep his promise and overturn the decision adopted by former President Yahya Jammeh concerning his country&

Paris Conspiratorial Conference Confines the Solution for the Issue of Palestine in the “Treacherous” Negotiation Solution

With a wide international participation and presence of the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the final statement of the International Peace Conference, which was held in the French capital Paris on Sunday, confirmed that a negotiated solution of two states, Jewish entity and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security is the only way to achieve lasting peace . We, in Hizb ut Tahrir in the Blessed Land of Palestine, consider all those who participated in the conference or welcomed its outputs is a conspirator against Palestine and its people, a squanderer of the Blessed Land of Palestine for the Jewish occupation. We affirm the following: Palestine is an Islamic land usurped and occupied by the Jews who established their terrorist entity on it and forced its people to migrate from it, with the help of France; the sponsor of the conference, Britain; the owner of the infamous Balfour Declaration, and America; the supporter of the Jewish entity with mo
