O Dear Sisters,
السلام عليكن ورحمة الله وبركاته
Assalamu Alaikunna Warahmatu Allah Wabarakatu
الحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله وعلى آله وصحبه ومن والاه وبعد،
Praise be to Allah, prayer and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah (saw) and his family and companions and his allies,
I begin my speech with that which is Khair (good):
((رَبَّنَا وَآتِنَا مَا وَعَدْتَنَا عَلَى رُسُلِكَ وَلَا تُخْزِنَا يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ إِنَّكَ لَا تُخْلِفُ الْمِيعَادَ * فَاسْتَجَابَ لَهُمْ رَبُّهُمْ أَنِّي لَا أُضِيعُ عَمَلَ عَامِلٍ مِنْكُمْ مِنْ ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنْثَى بَعْضُكُمْ مِنْ بَعْضٍ))
"Our Lord! Grant us what You did promise unto us through Your Messengers, and save us from shame on the Day of Judgment: for You never renege on Your promise * and their Lord has accepted of them, and answered them: "Never will I allow the waste of the work of any of you, be He male or female: you are members, one of another..." [Surah Aali-Imran 3:194-95]
The subject of your conference causes restlessness and touches the hearts, for the free women of Sham seek protection but the Muslim armies do not protect, whether those who are nearby or those that are further away ... these women seek help, but the rulers scattered in the Muslim countries do not help, these rulers are corpses in the clothing of the living ... and when the free women of Sham despaired from receiving any protection or help, the grief and tragedy intensified within her, so she sought refuge in the neighboring Muslim country but found the false border halting her. Thus it is a tragedy over the tragedy of the hardship and suffering she faced, that the rulers considered her a burden on national security! Instead of finding safe shelter, she only found more hardship, such that it compelled some refugees, to the neighboring place, to feel that they had only moved from one hardship to another, so they returned from where they came, back under the shade of death again!
O Dear Sisters. This is how the Muslim countries have become, rife with borders and blockades. Hardship afflicts anyone who wishes to pass through the Sykes-Picot borders. If he wishes to pass between a village or a city to another in neighboring country, even though the soils of both countries are one and the same soil: such as between Deraa and Ramtha, or between Al-Qaseer and Arsal, or Abu Kamal and Al-Qaem, or Aleppo, indeed beyond Aleppo, to Adana, or beyond Adana, he is afflicted by suffering and hardship travelling between these nearby places! Even though, the Muslim used to move from the far west, from Andalusia, to the Far East, to Indonesia, with dignity in the lands of Islam, in peace and security.
Thus, this is how the Muslim woman has found herself; she appeals for protection and receives no protection, she cries for help and receives none. And when she seeks refuge in a neighboring country, they consider her a burden, even though she was dear and dignified under the shade of the Islamic state, the Khilafah "Caliphate" Rashida that implements the Ahkam of Islam ... the Muslim woman was the measure of care and protection in the Islamic State, the Khaleefah carried food on his own back for her, if she were hungry. The Khaleefah sends an army to protect her, if she were to ask for help, thus he answers her appeal "Wa-Muatasema" "Where are you? O Muatasem"... one of her cries compelled Muhammad bin Qasim, the commander of the Muslim army, to shake the throne of the King of the Sind, because he seized a Muslim ship and took the woman as hostages ... her insecurity drove Qutaiyba, the leader of the Muslims, to capture the one who distressed her. He refused the treasures of gold and silver offered by the captured one to ransom himself. And Qutaiyba refused saying "No, by Allah I will not release you, so that you may never again terrorize any other Muslim woman" and then ordered his killing.
O Dear Sisters: What is happening in the land of Sham is a war on Muslims and Islam, led by America and its allies, implemented by its means and agents... The Takbeers of the revolutionaries trembled them in their beds, the strong stance of the Muslims stunned them and the calls for the Khilafah "Caliphate" from the mouths of the sincere shook them, rather shook them to pieces, which made those who are terrified of the Khilafah "Caliphate" lose their minds ... On the one hand they see their puppet Bashar toppled or almost toppled, whilst on the other hand, they fear that he will topple before they mature an alternative agent to him, so that Sham will return as Dar al-Islam again. Therefore they supply the tyrant Bashar with all types of weapons of mass destruction, so that he is able to resist until they appoint the coalition and its government.
The Khilafah "Caliphate" is the foremost concern of America and its allies, indeed the entire West including even the pettiest of its agents and followers, whether in the neighboring region or beyond. So, they are doing their best to stop the great Khilafah "Caliphate" from returning, because they realize that if the Khilafah "Caliphate" were to return, it will become the foremost in the world, spreading the Khair (good) throughout the world, burying the tyrants and sending them on to their black fate and then the Islamic Ummah will return as it should be...
((كُنْتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ))
"You are the best Ummah ever raised up for mankind; You Enjoin Al-Maroof (Right) and forbid Al-Munkar (Evil), and You believe In Allah." [Surah Aali Imran 3:110]
Moreover, the Khilafah "Caliphate" will illuminate the world again, then the limbs of the Kuffar colonialists and their agents will be torn, fear will strike the hearts of those who hate Islam and their adherents. Islam and Muslims will be dignified whilst Kufr and its people will be humiliated. All this will happen, Allah willing, in spite of the enemies of Islam.
O Dear Sisters: It is true that the tragedy of the free women of Al-Sham is great and their affliction is awful ... It is true that their crisis greatly intensified, but it is also true that the intensification of the crisis is a sign of ease, for the brightest dawn comes after the darkest pitch of the night,
((فَإِنَّ مَعَ الْعُسْرِ يُسْرًا))
"So, Indeed with every difficulty, there is relief." [Surah Ash-Sahrah 94:5]
And you have the brothers of Hizb ut Tahrir, and those who support, advocate and assist it, for they have resolved that they will not tire or rest until they bring the dawn of the Khilafah "Caliphate" again, by the will of Allah,
((وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ * بِنَصْرِ اللَّهِ يَنْصُرُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ))
"That day believers will rejoice * upon the victory of Allah who makes victorious whom He wishes and He is the Mighty, the Merciful." [Surah Ar-Rum 30: 4-5]
To conclude, I extend to you my salaam, O dear sisters, and I commence your blessed conference, the good conference, the poignant conference, Insha'Allah, so in the name of Allah and with His blessings...
والسلام عليكنَّ ورحمة الله وبركاته
