Press Release

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ كَمَا كُتِبَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ

“O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous” [al-Baqara: 183]


On the occasion of the arrival of the blessed month of Ramadan, we extend our warmest greetings to the Muslim Ummah in general and the people of Syria particularly, asking the Lord to unite their ranks and accelerate the elimination of the tyrant of Ash-Sham, and to bless us with the righteous Khilafah (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood; that will bring glory for Islam and its people and humiliate by it the Kufr and its people, and heal by it the hearts of the believers.

O Muslims in Ash-Sham the Abode of Islam:

The one who made the fasting month of Ramadan obligatory on us, has made it obligatory on us to establish the Khilafah and to rule by what Allah has revealed, Allah (swt) said:

وَأَنِ احْكُمْ بَيْنَهُمْ بِمَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ وَلَا تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ وَاحْذَرْهُمْ أَنْ يَفْتِنُوكَ عَنْ بَعْضِ مَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ إِلَيْكَ فَإِنْ تَوَلَّوْا فَاعْلَمْ أَنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ أَنْ يُصِيبَهُمْ بِبَعْضِ ذُنُوبِهِمْ وَإِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِنَ النَّاسِ لَفَاسِقُونَ

“And judge, [O Muhammad], between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations and beware of them, lest they tempt you away from some of what Allah has revealed to you. And if they turn away – then know that Allah only intends to afflict them with some of their [own] sins. And indeed, many among the people are defiantly disobedient” [Al Ma’ida: 49]

 Khilafah alone will solve the Ummah’s problems, it will stop the bloodshed and protect their honour and provide security and feed the starving, and preserve their wealth, and only by it that the law of Allah (swt) will be implemented on earth. By the Khilafah the internal politics will be implemented: the rule system, the economic system, the social system, the penal system and the media and education policy and carries Islam as message of mercy to mankind, as a basis of foreign policy through Dawah and Jihad. It is fitting that this great obligation is called the crown of the obligations, that lives and souls are sacrificed for, and it is taken as a matter of life and death, it is the vital issue of the Ummah. We in Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Syria invite you to work with us to establish the righteous Khilafah on the method of Prophethood so that Allah’s promise and the glad-tiding of the Messenger (saw) is realized by our own Hands and you achieve the glory in this life and the blessings of the Hereafter, Allah (swt) says:

وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا مِنْكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَى لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا وَمَنْ كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ فَأُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ

“Allah has promised those who have believed among you and done righteous deeds that He will surely grant them succession [to authority] upon the earth just as He granted it to those before them and that He will surely establish for them [therein] their religion which He has preferred for them and that He will surely substitute for them, after their fear, security, [for] they worship Me, not associating anything with Me. But whoever disbelieves after that – then those are the defiantly disobedient” [An-Nur: 55]

The Prophet (saw) said:

«…، ثُمَّ تَكُونُ مُلْكًا جَبْرِيَّةً، فَتَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ، ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا، ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلَافَةً عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ نُبُوَّةٍ، ثُمَّ سَكَتَ»

Then there will be an oppressive monarchy as long as Allah wills, then he will eliminate it if he so wills. Then a Khilafah on the way of Prophethood will prevail. Then he kept silent.” [Ahmed]
