The Ummah Divided into Nation-States under the Global Secular System Can Never Protect the Sanctities of Islam. This can only be Accomplished by Establishing the Khilafah, the Shield of Islam
Once again, on 20 July 2023, with permission from the Swedish government, the Noble Quran has been assaulted, by the same evil person who had burnt the Quran on the blessed occasion of Eid-ul-Adha. These are not isolated incidents. In the last two decades, the sanctities of Islam have been assaulted several times by the kuffar, including insulting the Noble Quran and attacking the honor of the Prophet Muhammad (saw), who is dear to the heart of Muslims. As always, this time too, Muslims are protesting. However, we are seeing that every time the culprit is protected, whilst Muslim rulers resort to weak condemnations to avoid the wrath and anger of the Muslims.
The most important question in this matter is that how did the Muslims reach the state of helplessness? How is the matter not going beyond pointless condemnations? How, when with the passage of time the audacity of the kuffar is increasing? The main reason for this is that the power of the Muslims is divided into more than fifty states, whilst the rulers imposed on them give priority to pleasing their Western masters.
We must know that these assaults on the sanctities will never end with empty slogans and condemnations. We must adopt the same strong stance that was adopted by Khalifah Abdul Hamid al-Thani when France and Britain wanted to stage a drama with blasphemy of the Prophet (saw). The rulers of the secular nation-states will never adopt such a stance. For this, we must undertake a serious political effort to establish our state, the Khilafah (Caliphate). It is around the Khaleefah alone that the Muslims of the whole world gather to counter the kuffar. The Messenger of Allah (saw) said, «إِنَّمَا الإِمَامُ جُنَّةٌ يُقَاتَلُ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ وَيُتَّقَى بِهِ»“The Imam (Khaleefah) is a shield for them (Muslims). They fight behind him and they are protected by him.”
It will be the Khilafah on the Method of Prophethood that will raise the banner of Islam, protect the sanctities, unify the resources and power of the Muslims as one state. Those who attack the sanctities of Islam, the Noble Quran and the honor of the Prophet (saw) will be forced to desist. Allah (swt) said,
[وَاِنۡ نَّكَثُوۡۤا اَيۡمَانَهُمۡ مِّنۡۢ بَعۡدِ عَهۡدِهِمۡ وَطَعَنُوۡا فِىۡ دِيۡنِكُمۡ فَقٰتِلُوۡۤا اَٮِٕمَّةَ الۡـكُفۡرِۙ اِنَّهُمۡ لَاۤ اَيۡمَانَ لَهُمۡ لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَنۡتَهُوۡنَ]
“But if they break their pledges after making them and attack your faith, make war on the leaders of unbelief that they may desist, for they have no regard for their pledged words.” [TMQ Surah At-Tauba 9:12].
