Press Release
Hizb ut Tahrir issued a Call today to the Muslims globally, particularly to the People of Power; it was Read out at an Event after Jummah prayers in the Gulshan Central Mosque compound
Today, the first Friday of Ramadan, 1436AH, Hizb ut Tahrir issued a call to the Muslims globally entitled, “The Penultimate Call from Hizb ut Tahrir to the Muslim Ummah in general and it’s People of Power in particular.” Branches of the party all over the world arranged events after Jummah prayers at prominent mosques in their respective countries to read out the Call to the Muslims. In Bangladesh, member of Hizb ut Tahrir Muhammad Hedayetul Islam, read out the Call in front of several hundred Muslims gathered inside Dhaka’s Gulshan Central Mosque (Azad Masjid) compound.

The Hizb described the current state of intense darkness which the Muslim Ummah is going through… the colonial aggression, treachery of the rulers, looting of Ummah’s wealth, denigration of the Ummah’s sanctities by her enemies etc. The Hizb also elucidated the way forward for the Ummah to revive from her decline i.e. by re-establishing the Khilafah Rashidah that implements Islam internally and carries it to the world through da’wah and jihad, such that Allah the Mighty, the Wise, gives it victory. The necessity to work for the Khilafah is not just because the Khilafah is, in assessing the reality, the only path of salvation and victory. Rather, it is necessary, first and foremost, because it is a great obligation, the mother and crown of obligations, by which the Shariah is implemented and the hudud established, and without which neither is possible…and that without which an obligation is not complete is itself an obligation.

After that the Hizb made an appealing Call; excerpts from that are quoted below and we urge the sincere and aware ones from the Muslims of Bangladesh in general and the People of Power in particular to respond to this “Penultimate Call” positively:

O Muslims…O People of Power!

…We direct this penultimate call to you at a time in which the Khilafah has become established in the public opinion of the vast majority of Muslims…
Nothing remains now except the command of Allah for an Ansar to come forth like the Ansar and a Sa’d like Sa’d… men who would support their deen by supporting those working for the Khilafah, by supporting Hizb ut Tahrir, establishing thereby the second Khilafah Rashidah, a Khilafah on the way of Prophethood after the present tyrannical rule we are in, as per the promise of Allah (saw),

وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنْكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ
“Allah has promised those of you who believe and do good deed that He will grant them authority in the Earth…” (Al-Nur: 55)

Also the glad tiding of His Messenger (saw),

«... ثُمَّ تَكُونُ مُلْكًا جَبْرِيَّةً، فَتَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ، ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا، ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلَافَةً عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ نُبُوَّةٍ»
“…then there will be tyrannical rule. It will remain as long as Allah wills it to remain, then He will lift it when He wills. Then there will be Khilafah on the way of Prophethood.” (Ahmad)

This is the penultimate call we direct to you for we wish the best for you. So move swiftly O Muslims, move swiftly O you who have power! Join the da’wah and give the nusrah. Move swiftly to establish the Khilafah with the Hizb, not to be left as mere witnesses of it, for the goodness and reward you will gain by joining the ranks today is not the like goodness and reward you will gain by joining tomorrow, even though there is goodness in both.

﴿لا يَسْتَوِي مِنكُم مَّنْ أَنفَقَ مِن قَبْلِ الْفَتْحِ وَقَاتَلَ أُوْلَئِكَ أَعْظَمُ دَرَجَةً مِّنَ الَّذِينَ أَنفَقُوا مِن بَعْدُ وَقَاتَلُوا وَكُلاً وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الْحُسْنَى وَاللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرٌ﴾
“Those who spent before the Conquest (of Makkah) and fought are not at par (with others). Those are much greater in rank than those who spent later and fought, though Allah has promised the good (reward) for each. Allah is well aware of what you do.” (Al-Hadid: 10)

This is the penultimate call we direct to you, so do not fear anyone except Allah, the Mighty, the Great. Do not say, “America and the West will stand against us if we support you”, for the enemy’s stand will falter and their strength will collapse in front of the one who believes, assists and supports for the sake of Allah. He (swt) says,

﴿وَكَانَ حَقًّا عَلَيْنَا نَصْرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ﴾
“And it is an obligation upon Us to help the believers.” (Rum: 47)

This is the penultimate call we direct to you, reminding you about your true strength and the weakness of your enemies. You are the Muslims, the believers in Allah as your Lord, Islam as your deen and Muhammad (saw) as your Prophet. You are strong because of your Lord,

لَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ
There is no power except with Allah” (Kahf: 39)
And you are honoured because of your deen,
وَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ وَلِرَسُولِهِ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ
To Allah belongs all honour, to His Messenger and to the believers.” (Munafiqun: 8)

This is the penultimate call in which we emphasise for you what we have said previously that you are, by the leave of Allah, capable of defeating your enemies. The kafir colonialist states are strong in appearance but weak in reality. They have advanced weapons but no real men. Weapons without men are of weak effect in front of a believing contingent who might be lesser in weapons but are more severe in fighting. This is a reality articulated by the wars fought by the Khilafah against the disbelievers. Thus superiority in material weapons alone does not suffice in war against the Muslims because they possess a true and live creed which gives them a fighting ability unmatched by the tyrants led today by America. However they will see this truth with their own eyes when the dawn of the Khilafah rises, by the leave of Allah, and it moves from victory to victory, pushing the tyrants back to the lands, if, that is, there remains for them any land…

﴿ وَلَتَعْلَمُنَّ نَبَأَهُ بَعْدَ حِينٍ ﴾
“You shall certainly know of its truth after a while.” (S’ad: 88)

This is the penultimate call we direct to you, seeking your support, so join those who have preceded you in supporting us. We extend to you our hands, so grab them and join the people of influence who have already pledged their support to us, for the caravan is about to set off so join the journey.

وَيَقُولُونَ مَتَى هُوَ قُلْ عَسَى أَنْ يَكُونَ قَرِيبًا
“They say, ‘When will that be?’ Say, ‘Perhaps it is near.’” (al-Isra’: 51)

We on our part are at ease with the support of Allah and His promise.

وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ*بِنَصْرِ اللَّهِ يَنْصُرُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ
“That day the believers will rejoice, in the victory of Allah. He gives victory to whom He wills. He is the Mighty, the Merciful.” (Al-Rum: 4-5)
