An Open Letter to the Advisors of the Fatwa Index
With Which We Invoke them Before Allah on the Day of Resurrection
In an interview published by Al-Ahali Newspaper on Wednesday, 11/9/2019, with Tariq Abu Hashima, director of the World Fatwa Index, the newspaper quoted a text from the Index: “…the Palestinian Hizb ut Tahrir accused (the index) of Kufr and asked of it to return to maturity after shedding light on its organizational role, which made Al-Ahali meet the Director of the Strategic Studies Unit, and General Supervisor of the International Fatwa Index in Dar al-Ifta, Tariq Abu Hashima”. And among the questions asked: “We always see that the Ifta’ responds to groups: are its efforts effective with the terrorist organizations?” He replied: “Yes, it has a great resonance, the Palestinian Hizb ut Tahrir issued more than four leaflets against the Index, especially since the Index is the first to draw attention to the party that practices intellectual extremism, and the first to classify intellectual extremism and arms-bearing extremism, as well as the use of its reports in a large number of countries in the world, and provide a comparison between it and the Global Terrorism Index in the face of terrorism.”
Firstly, those who said that we in Hizb ut Tahrir make Takfeer on the fatwa index have lied, even if we demand them and will continue to ask them to repent to Allah for what they are doing of aligning with the enemies of Islam and adopting their view that describes Islam as terrorism and considers every Muslim a terrorist. Takfir is not our business. We just put the straight line next to the retort lines and that's what haunts every retort.
Second: Hizb ut Tahrir is not a Palestinian party; it is a party for the whole Ummah. It does not recognize nor consider the boundaries and divisions of Sykes-Picot, and the insistence on describing it as a Palestinian is a call to patriotism and its rotten bigotry, and is a dispersal of the Ummah on the basis of the divisions created by the colonial kuffar, while the Ummah of Islam is one and its state is one; this is how Allah (swt) wanted it to be, and this is how it should be. It must not be said - Palestinian or Egyptian or Shami but a Muslim, and Hizb ut Tahrir introduced itself as a political party whose ideology is Islam, working within the Ummah and with it for the resumption of the Islamic way of life by establishing the Khilafah on the method of the Prophet (saw). It adopts the method of the Messenger (saw) for change and his (saw) actions in the Meccan period until Allah (swt) facilitated for him the Ansaar who gave him bay’ah and supported him until he migrated to them and was given the leadership of Madinah, establishing the first Islamic State, and this method did not entail any material work or armed struggle. Perhaps the director of the Fatwa Index is well aware that the word and the idea are stronger than bullets and sharper than swords, and he may also realize the strength of what Hizb ut Tahrir holds and its ideas, which he described as intellectual extremism, a statement that comes out of the niche of the American Rand Corporation, which describes Hizb ut Tahrir as the main fighter in the war of ideas. Indeed, Hizb ut Tahrir carries a clear, pure and crystallized ideology, with which we defy you and the whole world, as everything we say and what we adopt is well-known and clear. We have never lied to anyone, nor have we fabricated nor made takfeer on anyone, but we have exerted our efforts with you and with everyone else inviting you to return to the path of consciousness. Do you see an insult in that?!
You also continue to insist on adopting the West's vision and stabbing your religion and those working for resuming it as an applied practical reality, by giving the West reports outlining how to deal with terrorism, i.e. with Islam, confirming the fact that you are part of the war against your religion and against those working for re-implementing its State, which Allah (swt) has promised of, and the Messenger of Allah (saw) gave its glad-tidings:
«ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلَافَةٌ عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ النُّبُوَّةِ»
“And then there will be a Khilafah on the method of the Prophet”.
To those in charge of the Fatwa Index! We have advised you and will continue to advise you, and you should know that aligning with the enemy of your Deen will not save you in this world nor in the hereafter, as Allah (swt) has promised the faithful workers with victory and succession, and we have trust in the promise of Allah. The time of the second righteous Khilafah on the method of the Prophethood is imminent as we told you in the previous release, that it is just around the corner. The whole Ummah is yearning for its salvation from capitalism, its greediness and brutality, and its true salvation is in the Khilafah State whose whole project is carried by Hizb ut Tahrir. The only step now is for the faithful armies of the Ummah to side by this project, carry it, support it, and empower its carriers with implementing it. The Ummah that produced the Ansaar of yesterday is fruitful; it continues to reproduce the Ansaar, and the armies of the Ummah are full of faithful ones, so soon we will see a group that will give it victory as the Ansaar of yesterday have done. On that day, we will see the anguish and regret on the faces of the fighters and the stubborn, and on that day the believers will rejoice with the victory of Allah. We call unto you and we will never give up, lest there is amongst you who will respond and be safe.
The Khilafah that we call for and carry the idea of from Islam will be established without any doubt by the grace of Allah, no matter how hard you fight its call or distort the image of its workers; it is only a matter of time, and we are working and waiting for the victory of Allah, for the victory of Allah is near! It is enough for us that when it is established, those who worked for it before its establishment and those who entered it after its establishment will not be equal, although there is goodness in both, but those who fought it and tried their best to prevent it are equal in the eyes of Allah to those who want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light however much the disbelievers are averse! And we renew your call and repeat it, do not be with those who want to extinguish the light of Allah, for Allah will perfect His light, and this will only be a sorrow and regret in the hearts of the aggressors, so repent to Allah so that Allah accepts from you and forgives your past.
Oh People of Egypt - the Kinanah: These are the ones in charge of the Fatwa Index, and this is their stance on your Deen, describing it as your enemy describes it in the Kafir West, and even more; they have exploited themselves and their knowledge at the West’s service, and stood with it in its war against Islam and its ideas, careless to your suffering in the shade of the West and its agents and due to the implementation of the systems of the West and its brutal laws against you by force and compulsion, and despite their knowledge which they conceal that your survival is in the full, undiminished application of Islam in a Khilafah Rashidah State (rightly guided Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood, and we do not doubt their knowledge of this fact, and if they were ignorant of this, then they carry no knowledge at all.
O Honorable People of Egypt: The remedy for all your problems is what Hizb ut Tahrir holds for you; it is your only salvation and the alternative that you are looking for. So address your loyal sons in the armies and demand them to take sides with their Ummah and cut the ropes of their loyalty to the West and its agents of the traitors, and link them with the faithful workers for your and their salvation, so that Allah may complete His promise through you, that you gain the precedent and credit that you are deserving of, and through you, the State which was the glad tidings of the Prophet (saw) is implemented, and Egypt with you will be Egypt Al-Munawwarah. Oh Allah, hasten its return and allow us to be its soldiers and witnesses.
[يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اسْتَجِيبُواْ لِلّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُم لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ]
“Oh you who believe! Answer the call of Allah and the Messenger when He calls you to that which gives you life” [Al-Anfal: 24]
