News Right Now: A Catastrophic Occasion
Welcome to News Right Now: A Catastrophic Occasion!
Throughout the month of Rajab- We will be presenting what Rajab means to the Muslim Ummah and how for the past century this has affected the Muslims. The Central Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir has launched a global Campaign entitled, "Upon the Centenary of the Destruction of the Khilafah ... Establish it, O Muslims."
Rajab the Hijri month: What does this mean to the Muslim Ummah? How did this catastrophe impact Muslims from thought, wealth, intellect, dignity, etc? Losing the Khilafah and arbitrating other than Allah’s law, the Ummah lost the honor, dignity, and protection from its enemies. On the anniversary of the fall of the Khilafah that was destroyed by the British colonialists with the collaboration of traitors from the Arabs and Turks, led by the traitor Mustafa Kamal Ataurk, the Ummah has seen misery in every aspect of life and in every part of the Muslim World. There are many issues to reflect upon. Our hearts are saddened at the loss of the Islamic Khilafah (the caliphate).
Our Ummah went through long periods of decline; it was then plagued by intellectual conquest, the creation of nationalist and patriotic tendencies, and the Kafir colonialist was able to sow the seeds of discord and division between them, so that he was able to demolish the Khilafah. The powerful state that once spread Islam became divided, weak, weightless and worthless.
Europe successfully stuck her claws into Muslim lands and detached the Muslim Ummah from their state. In the period after the destruction of the Khilafah, the Ummah has faced great trials. First, we lost our blessed land with the occupation of Palestine by the Zionists. Then, Muslim lands were divided and replaced with tyrant rulers across. The Ummah would find herself at the mercy of her enemies. Her lands were desecrated and her resources stolen. Her blood was cheapened, and her Deen was placed under assault. Calamities befell, one after the other. There was no protection or shield to defend against the continuous onslaught of attacks. Every inch of Muslim lands became a stage for the enemies’ plots.
The Ummah saw wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, and Syria. Under America’s bogus war on ‘terror’, a war was waged on Islam and Muslims. This was a justification for the endless occupation of Muslim lands, robbery of our wealth, and the policing of our lands. Military bases emerged in Muslim lands like fast food franchises. The brutal rapes that occurred in Iraq were the start of countless casualties that occurred in the Middle East. Bombs have rained down upon the Ummah. The enemies of Islam were emboldened everywhere. Soon, Uyghur Muslims were pursued by the Chinese government and placed in concentration camps, enduring the most brutal treatments in order to erase their Islamic identity under the guise of fighting ‘terror’. The mass rapes and murders of the helpless Myanmar Muslims were also included under the guise of fighting ‘terror’.
Once our Ummah lost its Shield, we became an Ummah that has been humiliated everywhere and by everyone. There was no Mu’tusim billah or Abdul-Hamid to defend and avenge us. It is time for the Muslim armies to break their shackles & restore Islam as a way of life to be ruled by a Khilafah upon the method of the Prophethood. The re-establishment of the Khilafah will restore humanity to mankind. It will protect our beloved Prophet (saw) from insults, stop the waging of wars, and restore resources back into the Ummah.
O Ummah of Rasulullah (saw) have you ever thought of why these calamities befell the Muslims? Aren’t they (Muslims throughout the world) our brothers and sisters in faith? They are indeed our brothers and sisters bonded by the kalimah of tauhid (the oneness of Allah) Laa Ilaha Illallah, Muhammadur Rasulullah. Allah (swt) says,
(إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ إِخْوَةٌ)
“The believers are but brothers” [al-Hujurat 49:10]
