Hizb ut-Tahrir accelerates its campaign for Khilafah in the Islamic world
London, UK, August 23, 2007 – At mosques across the country tomorrow [August 24], tens of thousands of Muslims will receive a leaflet from Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, entitled ‘The Muslim Ummah puts the call for Khilafah on the global political map’
The leaflet highlights the support from hundreds of thousands of Muslims across the world for the global campaign throughout the month of Rajab, the anniversary of the demise of the Khilafah. This campaign included a series of conferences across the world, supported by hundreds of thousands of Muslims all giving a clear call for Khilafah, all explaining a clear intellectual and political method to re-establish the Khilafah, and all putting the Khilafah as an alternative ruling system to the stale democracies, monarchies and tyrannies that currently exist.
Conferences were held in London, Ramallah (Palestine), Malaysia, the Netherlands, Yemen, Ukraine and Lebanon where thousands gathered, debated and discussed the Khilafah as a way forward for the Muslim world. The conference in Indonesia was attended by 100,000 Muslims in one of the largest football stadiums in the world and symbolised the sentiments of Muslims the world over. As flags were waved, and people made takbeer, the speeches were carried by Al Jazeera, BBC, Reuters and others to millions of Muslims around the globe who rejoiced and made dua that Allah would support this call.
The leaflet reminds the Muslim community that "The Khilafah does not belong to any group or any one section of Muslims" but "that it is the political system of Islam that all of us desire and that Allah (SWT) has obliged." It also reminds Muslims of their responsibility to "understand its details [those of Islam and the Khilafah], explain its systems and maintain the momentum that has been created, by Allah’s Grace and Permission."
Taji Mustafa, media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain said, "Here in the UK, we must be part of this global movement to restore Islamic government to the Muslim world. Today Islam, Shariah and the Khilafah are attacked and lied about by Western governments to prevent the Muslims from liberating themselves from the tyrants and dictators in our countries."
"Our work here involves building the correct ideas about Islam, including its political ideas, especially Khilafah, within our communities whilst engaging with the wider non-Muslim community. Addressing the misconceptions and demonstrating the beauty of Islam through words and deeds. Building a strong dawah for Islam in the West will go a long way in creating a positive global opinion for Islam and Khilafah, vital to the establishment of the Khilafah in the Muslim world."
