The results of the legislative elections for the 'People's Assembly' have revealed a landslide victory for the Islamic groups represented in the 'Freedom and Justice' party (The Muslim Brotherhood) and the 'Noor' party (Salafi) and if this indicates anything it indicates the extent to which the people of Egypt are directed towards Islam which they see as the solution and way out from the oppressive and repressive rule that they lived under. They did this believing that the 'People's Assembly' and those who won seats in it would return the rule to what Allah (swt) had revealed, and bring to them a noble way of living, liberate Masjid Al-Aqsaa, unify the Muslim lands and put an end to the decades they suffered under oppression...and it was with this thinking that they elected them.
However, those who gave their votes to these Islamic groups have been surprised by the statements that have come from those who have won seats giving assurances and peace of mind to the west who are known to show no regard to the Muslims in terms of ties and covenant. Making statements expressing that the coming ruling regime with an Islamic majority will respect the 'Camp David' agreement with the Zionists, and they will not implement the Sharee'ah and this is despite the millions of the people who came out on the streets demanding the implementation of the Sharee'ah!!! And Allah (swt) says:
وَلَنْ تَرضَى عَنْكَ اليهودُ ولا النَصارى حَتّى تَتّبِعَ مِلّتَهُم
"And the Jews and Christians will never be content with you until you follow their way of life" [Al-Baqara, 2:120]
and He (swt) said:
وَأنِ احْكُمْ بَيْنَهُمْ بِمَا أَنْزَلَ اللهُ ولا تَتّبِعْ أهواءَهُمْ
"And rule between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their desires" [Al-Maida, 5:49]
Verily what is happening right now in the political arena in Egypt is none other than a detour away from the revolution, and the theatre of the elections is none other than a struggle and competition for seats in an assembly that possesses no real authority. Indeed it is intended to subject the Sharee'ah of Allah to the system of voting in compliance with the wishes of America and the 'Military Council' which holds real power in its hands, commanding the police forces and army will not turn a blind eye if the parliament deviates from the path and road map that America has drawn out and which in reality is the extension of the defunct former regime. Silence over this theatre means none other than extending the life of corruption and a disruption to the implementation of the Sharee'ah of Allah using as an argument the idea of 'Tadarruj' (gradualism) on which Allah has revealed nothing to give it credence or strength.
O Muslims, O people of Egypt!
The implementation of the Sharee'ah can only occur if the sovereignty is for the Shar'a (Islamic legislation) and the Sultan (authority) belongs to the Ummah. So it is obligatory to implement the rules of Islam completely as a single whole without there being a referendum upon it or gradualism involved in it. Allah (swt) says:
اليومَ أكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دينَكُمْ وَأتْمَمْتُ عَلَيكُمْ نِعْمَتي وَرَضيتُ لكُمُ الإسلامَ دينا
"Today I have completed your Deen for you and perfected upon you my blessings and I have chosen for you Islam as your Deen" [Al-Maida, 5:3]
Similarly Abu Bakr (ra) immediately fought against those who apostatized and withheld the payment of the Zakaah and he did not implement a gradual approach in regards to this and like him none of the Khulafaa after him implemented the Shar'a according to Tadarruj (gradualism).
As for the Sultan (authority) then it is obligatory that it belongs to the Ummah and they are the ones who elect their Khalifah and follow him up upon the implementation of the Shar'a laws and account him and remove him if it becomes necessary to do so. And the power of the army is meant to be a safeguard for this and there will be no fear upon them or from them if the power is in their hand and their loyalty is to Allah. Indeed they are the protectors of the land and its servants and they are the protector to the one who rules by what Allah (swt) has revealed and the one who takes care of the affairs of the people in all areas of life in accordance to the truth and justice in addition to being the protector of the constitution and laws.
However if their loyalty is to America and the enemies of Allah then they will not be safeguarding the servants and the land, and they will never be looking after the interests of the people nor will they provide for them protection and security but rather continue in their oppression, humiliation and in causing the impoverishment of the people, turning against those who don't follow their way.
The Sultan (authority) in Egypt today does not belong to the Ummah and as such it is necessary to pressure the army in whose hand belongs the power to comply willingly with the good from the Ummah so that the army can give victory to the Ummah and place the authority in its hands so that they can choose a just Khalifah who will protect the servants and the land and provide justice, security and a noble livelihood to the Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
O brave officers and soldiers in Egyptian army!
Are you pleased that Egyptian women are dragged on the streets in front of your eyes whilst you are watching? Do you accept that the blood of your brothers and sisters is spilt to please America whilst you are witness to that? Is there not from amongst you the likes of the great Mu'tasim so that you will go forth to aid your sisters and give victory to the Deen of Allah whilst you are capable of doing this? Has not the time come for you to realize that you should free yourselves from the grip of America and the West and establish the Khilafah "Caliphate" of your Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and that this is the path to giving you honour and for you to arise? Is there not from you a rightly guided man?
O people in Egypt, O soldiers and officers in the brave army of Egypt!
Don't give in to what is being plotted against you in the attempts to change the direction of your revolution. Don't fall in to the trap of experimenting for decades to come under the same oppressive rule. Rather you should direct your sons from amongst the soldiers and officers in the Egyptian army to give victory and assist those who are working to establish the Khilafah "Caliphate" and to demand from them to not proceed in accordance to the plans of America and those who are aligned to them. Rather they should turn away from them and their agents completely so as to establish the righteous Islamic Khilafah "Caliphate", the Khilafah "Caliphate" which will solve all of your problems via the implementation of the Shar'a of your Lord.
Hizb-ut-Tahrir invites you to work with it to achieve this goal which Allah (swt) has made obligatory and which is the only way to regain your honor and the only way out for you.
يا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اسْتَجِيبُواْ لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُم لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ
"O you who believe! Answer Allah (by obeying Him) and (His) Messenger when he calls you to that which will give you life, and know that Allah comes in between a person and his heart (i.e. He prevents an evil person to decide anything). And verily to Him you shall (all) be gathered."
