The Ummah Youth, and what is Intended for them, and their Desired Role
Nasser Ridha (Abu Ridha) – Wilayah Sudan
Allah (swt) says:
[اللَّهُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ مِنْ ضَعْفٍ ثُمَّ جَعَلَ مِنْ بَعْدِ ضَعْفٍ قُوَّةً ثُمَّ جَعَلَ مِنْ بَعْدِ قُوَّةٍ ضَعْفاً وَشَيْبَةً يَخْلُقُ مَا يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَلِيمُ الْقَدِيرُ]
“Allah is the One Who created you from weakness, then made after weakness strength, then made after strength weakness and white hair. He creates what He wills, and He is the Knowing, the Competent.” [Ar-Rum: 54]
We address the power of youth. We address the largest segment in the Ummah of Islam. We address about 80% of the Islamic Ummah. We address you, O youth of Islam. Rejoice atthe hadith of the Messenger of Allah (saw) in Sahih Al-Bukhari: «سَبْعَةٌ يُظِلُّهُمْ اللَّهُ فِي ظِلِّهِ يَوْمَ لَا ظِلَّ إِلَّا ظِلُّهُ؛ الْإِمَامُ الْعَادِلُ، وَشَابٌّ نَشَأَ فِي عِبَادَةِ رَبِّهِ...»“Seven (people) will be shaded by Allah by His Shade when there will be no shade except His Shade. (They will be), a just ruler, a young man who has been brought up in the worship of his Lord ...”
We address you, the descendants of the rightly-guided caliphs, conquering leaders and eminent scholars. We address you and the whole world is watching your uprising and your revolution against injustice, tyranny, favouritism and tyranny. We address you, and you are fed up with submissiveness, submission, unemployment and redundancy as you look to a life of honour, dignity and decent living. You are looking for a bright tomorrow and a splendid future. This is what we want and hope for, but the enemy is awaiting for us and for whatever we want, and it ridicules our dreams and hinders the march of our rise and our revival; hence, targeting you, the Muslim youth, the beating heart of the Islamic Ummah, you are targeted by the colonial Kafir, and its agents from the rulers and politicians and from the media and those who are dazzled by its culture, wanting to annihilate you by dragging you into futile wars; sectarianism at times, racism at times, and political at other times. It reaped and continues to reap millions of Muslim sons, so we gained from it only sorrow, devastation and displacement.
And when they were surprised by your uprising (the Arab Spring revolutions), they hijacked them, reproducing the same corrupt regimes that you revolted against to topple them, even uglier, in order to ensure that their interests remain in our country in plundering our wealth and disrupting our revival projects based on the law of our Lord, which is causing frustration in the hearts of our youth and losing hope in the possibility of bringing about real change that meets our aspirations. So, migration became the dream of our youth, and the masses of immigrants set out to be swallowed up by desert sand or sea water, and whoever crossed them found nothing but a mirage, and he became like the one who seeks refuge from heat in fire!
They target your Aqeedah by spreading atheism, poisonous ideas, misleading and wrong concepts, through the so-called religious freedoms for which America has established a ministry in what is known as the "Ralph Wolff Religious Freedom Act" which gives America the right to intervene in any country to guarantee the right of atheism.
They target your values of chastity and honour by signing CEDAW and Child Protection ... and with malicious programs such as "Star Academy", "The Voice", and TV shows that violate the values of virtue and modesty.
They work on destroying you and wiping your minds by dragging you in the swamp of drugs and cancers, as drugs are passed through ports and airports and in huge containers under the care of officials and rulers, and by introducing carcinogenic foods and devices. Thirty-six ministers and secretaries of state in Sudan have been charged for their involvement in the supply of computers to government agencies that turned out to be radioactively contaminated.
They aim to strike any work for change based on Islam by distorting the image of Islam through what they “falsely and deceitfully” call Islamic governments that do everything ugly, eliminate justice and spread injustice, so that youth question the feasibility of change on the basis of Islam and the ability of Islam to deal with the crises that we live in our lives, and to distract youth from engaging in working with the sincere workers in establishing governance based on Islam.
O the hope and the expectation of the Ummah, do not be like a camel in the desert dying of thirst while it carries the water right on its back! Know for certainty that Allah’s guidance is the true guidance. The Almighty said:
[قُلْ إِنَّ هُدَى اللَّهِ هُوَ الْهُدَى وَلَئِنِ اتَّبَعْتَ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ بَعْدَ الَّذِي جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ مَا لَكَ مِنَ اللَّهِ مِنْ وَلِيٍّ وَلَا نَصِيرٍ]
“Say; Surely Allah's guidance, that is the (true) guidance”. And if you follow their desires after the knowledge that has come to you, you shall have no guardian from Allah, nor any helper” [Al-Baqara:120]. And know with certainty that the upright life and the decent life are within what is in our hands of the guidance and law of our Lord, the Almighty said:
[فَمَنِ اتَّبَعَ هُدَايَ فَلَا يَضِلُّ وَلَا يَشْقَى * وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَنْ ذِكْرِي فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنْكاً]
“Then whoever follows My guidance will neither go astray [in the world] nor suffer [in the Hereafter]. * And whoever turns away from My remembrance - indeed, he will have a depressed life.” [Ta-Ha: 123-24].
And for this reason, let’s work with Hizb ut Tahrir for the resumption of the Islamic way of life by establishing the Khilafah Rashidah (rightly-guided Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood, and you repeat the biography of the first former Muslim youth. You, young people, were the first circle in Islam after Abu Bakr and Khadija embraced Islam, the house of the young man Al-Arqam bin Abi Al-Arqam, was the first house for Muslims to meet to study Islam, and the young man Musab bin Umair was the first ambassador in Islam when the Prophet sent him to Medina to teach people their religion, so he was called Musab Al-Khair (The good), at whose hands Allah (swt) brought good, so the people of Medina embraced Islam. And the youth of the Ansar who went out to support the Messenger of Allah (saw) and pledged allegiance to him in the second Bay’ah of Al-‘Aqabah were the first building block in the establishment of the state of Islam. So, Allah (swt) put them together with those who preceded them, their brothers who had migrated to them, Allah (swt) says:
[وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَهَاجَرُوا وَجَاهَدُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَالَّذِينَ آوَوْا وَنَصَرُوا أُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ حَقّاً لَهُمْ مَغْفِرَةٌ وَرِزْقٌ كَرِيمٌ]
“But those who have believed and emigrated and fought in the cause of Allah and those who gave shelter and aided - it is they who are the believers, truly. For them is forgiveness and noble provision.” [Al-Anfal: 74]
So, they spread justice and goodness, and they made use of knowledge to reconstruct the land and serve the people, and they carried Islam to the world.
At the time of Hijra (the emigration), the youth Ali, may Allah ennoble his face, was the first commando in Islam, when he ransomed the Messenger of Allah (saw) and slept on his bed instead of him (saw). After the emigration and the state, the leaders of the conquerors emerged and carried the brigade of the Muslims, Musab bin Omair, Jaafar al-Tayyar and Usama bin Zaid (the beloved, son of the beloved), and Muhammad al-Fatih, the best Amir the conqueror of Constantinople. So, the armies were not overcome, not by many equipment, but by their Iman and good faith and trust in Allah, Allah (swt) says:
[يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنْ تَنْصُرُوا اللَّهَ يَنْصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ]
“O you who have believed, if you support Allah, He will support you and plant firmly your feet.” [Muhammad: 7]. And He (swt) says:
[إِنْ يَنْصُرْكُمُ اللَّهُ فَلَا غَالِبَ لَكُمْ وَإِنْ يَخْذُلْكُمْ فَمَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَنْصُرُكُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ وَعَلَى اللَّهِ فَلْيَتَوَكَّلِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ]
“If Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you; but if He should forsake you, who is there that can aid you after Him? And upon Allah let the believers rely” [Aal-i-Imran: 160].
For we do not fear America or the armies of the earth together, for even if they fail us, they will not cause failure to Allah.
O Muslim youth: Come to the study circles of Hizb ut Tahrir in order to draw from the pure flowing spring of Islam and to carry Islam with insight after the Kafir turned off the taps of knowledge except for his tap. Come, O youth of Islam in the armies of Muslims, so that you support your brothers in Hizb ut Tahrir, and put your hands on their hands to resume the Islamic way of life by establishing the second Khilafah Rashidah on the method of Prophethood, so you repeat the biography of your ancestors from the youth of Al-Aws and Al-Khazraj, and you are counted with them in the Almighty saying:
[وَالَّذِينَ آوَوْا وَنَصَرُوا أُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ حَقّاً]
“And those who gave shelter and aided - it is they who are the believers, truly.” [Al-Anfal: 74].
