The sudden and unpredictable developments in Afghanistan have once again placed the country at a crossroads, for various political factions, tribal leaders and influential people, to make a decision about the future political system in Afghanistan.
The Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir/ Wilayah Afghanistan advises all the political leaders, tribal influentials, former Mujahedeen, various factions and the people of power, that the country is going through a historic opportunity, requiring the people to grasp one of two fundamental choices: 1) establishing the system of Allah (swt) by restoring the Caliphate, and/or 2) adopting the human-made system by repeating the same bitter experiences of the past.
Currently, the US, Europe, UN and regional countries are negotiating with various Afghan political parties over a proposal for a ‘participatory system,’ which would include lip-service to Islam, adherence to international law, restriction to nation state borders and a mixture of secularism and Islam, that has to be approved by the international community. It is a system in which the faces would change but the current laws, system and structure will prevail. Grasping such options has always led Afghanistan to being plunged into the fires of civil war, failure and political impasse over the past few decades.
In contrast, the majority of Muslims of Afghanistan are yearning for the establishment of an Islamic State and an Islamic rule of law. It is indeed a great opportunity, gained after years of intellectual, political and military struggle against the occupation. It must not be frittered away by narrow-mindedness and impulsive dealings, which led to loss several times before, due to the mistakes of political parties and influential people.
Hizb ut Tahrir, with heartfelt respect, once again calls upon all political leaders, tribal influential people and factions to firmly reject any proposals of US, UN, and regional countries regarding the future political system of Afghanistan. They must not allow the sacrifices of the Muslims, which has been aimed at restoring the Islamic Shariah, to be spoiled, bringing about no desired result. Instead, strive to mobilize your energy to establish the system of Allah (swt) by restoring the Khilafah (Caliphate), utilizing the current opportunity to its fullest!
In fact, Afghanistan and the region have developed a great deal of intellectual, political, economic and military capacity in their hearts. If the system of Allah (swt) is adopted and answered to, In shaa Allah, great changes would take place in this region of the world, under the leadership of the hardy people of this land. This requires the strongmen who have Iman in such an objective, to show endurance against the hardships, by performing their actions based on the Shariah ruling. It’s a great opportunity for those who want to become Ansaarullah (supporters of Allah (swt)) and establish system of Allah (swt). It is a historic moment for those who want to walk in the path of the Companions (Sahaba) and choose Jannah instead of temporary pleasures of the world. What a great opportunity for the men of wisdom!
[يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ]
“O you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life. And know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart and that to Him you will be gathered (on the Day of Judgment).” [TMQ Surah al-Anfaal 8:24]
