Question and Answer Developments in Yemen - Salman bin Abdul Aziz Assumes the Rule in Saudi (Translated)

There are interesting events in Yemen and Saudi Arabia; the Houthis have taken over Sanaa, the government resigned and then the President of the Republic on the evening of 22/01/2015 ... Then King Abdullah in Saudi Arabia, died the morning of Friday, 23/01/2015 and was succeeded by King Salman bin Abdul Aziz. My question is in twofold: I: Are the events in Yemen still as issued by the party on 1/10/2014? And what is the expected solution? II: Does the receipt of Salman Bin Abdul Aziz of power after King Abdullah change in the policy of Saudi Arabia or have matters remained the same?


Answer to Question Causes for the Sudden Decrease in Oil Prices (Translated)

Media outlets have published this Wednesday, 07/01/2015 CE that Brent Crude Oil prices hit $49.66 per barrel, as too did the American crude oil, falling to around $47 per barrel, given that oil prices in 2014 have reached $115 a barrel at the beginning of summer in June in 2014. Then returned to gradually decrease until it reached at the beginning of winter, (at the end of December 2014) to $60 a barrel, and even lower than that, when the prices of West Texas crude oil reached $58.53, and here in the first week of January 2015, it reached to about $50, i.e. more than 50% decrease within five months! What are the causes for this sudden fall in oil prices? And what is expected for oil prices in the future?


Answer to the Question: Motives behind Global Struggle To: Ahmad Fuad Fuad (Translated)

In the book Political Concepts, under the chapter "Motives Behind Global Struggle" on page 30 English version (page 54 Arabic version), the first line on the first paragraph mentions: "Since the dawn of history to the day of judgement, the motives of the nations for global struggle are either pride and the desire for sovereignty or the pursuance of material interests."


  The Answer to the Question: Is the work to establish the Islamic State limited to the Arab countries only? To: Malik Murad (Translated)


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 only natural for the Islamic State to be re-established in the Arab territories, so that it will serve as a nucleus for the Islamic State which will encompass all Islamic lands. Though carrying the Islamic Da'wah in the Arab territories is necessary it is also necessary for the Islamic Da'wah to reach out to the rest of the Islamic world.

Notwithstanding this, initiating the work in the Arab territories does not mean that no work be done outside Arab territories before unifying the Arab territories in the Islamic State. The work must be carried out in the Arab territories to re-establish the Islamic State, then the State will grow and encompass the neighboring territories, regardless of whether they consist of Arabs or not".

Can it be understood from these texts that the target countries we work in to establish the Khilafah "Caliphate" are the Arab countries only, and that the work in rest of the non-Arab countries is for the purpose of carrying the Dawah and not for the establishment of the Islamic State there? Especially after mentioning that the nucleus of the coming Islamic state, soon by the permission of Allah, must be in the Arab countries first and then it expands to the rest of the Islamic countries.

Please explain what is the meaning of these texts specifically, I found some confusion in understanding them.

May Allah Bless you our Ameer and May Allah make us victorious by you and bring the victory by your hands.




Wa Alaikum us Salaam Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakaatuhu,

It must not be understood from the quoted texts from the two books, Concepts of Hizb ut Tahrir and Structuring of a Party, that the work to establish the State is limited to the Arab countries. Both texts mention that it is only natural, in origin the State be established in the Arab countries and not in others, this is because the Arabic language is the language of Islam, it is essential in understanding Islam and carrying out Ijtihad, this is why it is out of priority and proximity that the State be established in the Arab countries, that speak the Arabic language.

But this might not be achieved, and the State may be established in non-Arab countries, since the whole Islamic world is suitable for the establishment of the Khilafah "Caliphate" State, even though the priority is for the Arab countries. The Hizb does not limit its work to establish the State in the Arab countries, but it is also working to establish the State in non-Arab countries. The Hizb was founded in Arab countries, and worked there, the Majal (field of work to establish the state) was there initially because this is where the Hizb is and it is the place of their work, but when the Dawah grew outside the Arab countries and found a solid ground outside the Arab world, the Hizb extended its Majal and began to work to establish the Khilafah "Caliphate" in the Muslim countries, whether it was Arab or non-Arab, if the natural state is achieved and it is established in the Arab countries, then all  praise be to Allah, and if it is established in the other Islamic countries  it is also all praise be to Allah.

(وَرَبُّكَ يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَاءُ وَيَخْتَارُ)

"And your Lord creates what He wills and chooses" [Al-Qasas: 68]

And we seek assistance from Allah (swt).


Your brother,


Ata Bin Khalil Abu Al-Rashtah

Question and Answer Recent Developments in Yemen, in Particular the Signing of the Peace and National Partnership Agreement (Translated)

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.


Question & Answer: Update on the Iraqi Political Situation

There have been recent news reports of American aircraft carrying out air raids on some sites controlled by the IS organisation in Northern Iraq. Statements by Obama and some American officials were issued explaining that this measure was taken for humanitarian reasons and from fear of genocide and such talk. Although there were tougher and worse massacres that have taken place in Syria, but America did not intervene, even in Iraq massacres have occurred in Anbar and Fallujah, yet America also did not intervene which means that the motive of humanitarian and the like is not a convincing reason for the American planes raids in the north of Iraq. This can be understood from the track of events... the question is:


  Question and Answer Political Developments on the Yemeni Arena (Translated)

Media reported on the day of Eid al-Fitr, 28/07/2014, that Ali Saleh, the former President of Yemen had prayed Eid along with Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, the current president, as if they were good friends! While Hadi, since taking office has done work that demolished what Saleh built during his thirty years of his rule, of building army leaders loyal to the British of his sons, cousins, ​​relatives and loyalists, but Hadi cut their wings! He also held cabinet, military and security reshuffles a month ago, in the framework of the so-called government reforms. America had his influence on the introduction of ministers affiliated with it and the dismissal of leaders in the era of Saleh including his children and relatives... and the influence of America in these decisions is obvious..
