It is the Caliphate which will Unify the Ummah's Armed Forces to Eradicate the Jewish Occupation
Al-Jazeera reported on 6 July 2020 that the Jewish occupation has said it carried out fresh air raids on the Gaza Strip in response to three alleged rockets fired from the besieged Palestinian enclave. No casualties were reported in the attacks that took place amid heightened tensions over the Jewish entity’s widely criticised plan to illegally annex parts of the occupied West Bank. In the long days since the attacks, there has not been any response from the rulers of Muslims, including those of Pakistan, whose army is the sixth largest in the world.
Our hearts bleed for our brothers and sisters in Gaza. Surrounded by many Arab states, Palestine is abandoned because the rulers of the Muslim world today are busy making this Dunya a heaven for themselves. Under the noses of the rulers, the Jewish occupation undertakes operations to strengthen its hold of Palestine. Under the noses of the rulers, the non-Muslims today in different parts of the world are oppressing our Muslim brothers and sisters, be it the Hindus in Kashmir, the Russians in Syria or the Jews in Palestine. As elsewhere, the Muslims of Palestine are waiting for a Muslim armed force to liberate them. They're waiting for their Muslim brothers fight the ruthless Jewish forces. However, we are mistaken if we think that the current rulers of the kufr systems will ever mobilize our armed forces. Rather than gathering the millions of troops that the Ummah has now for the liberation of Masjid Al-Aqsa, they keep them divided into over fifty states.
Clearly, the only way to liberate all the lands that the kuffar have occupied, be it Kashmir or Palestine, is by re-establishing the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the Method of the Prophethood and announcing Jihad against the occupying kuffar. Allah (swt) said,
[وَاقْتُلُوهُمْ حَيْثُ ثَقِفْتُمُوهُمْ وَأَخْرِجُوهُم مِّنْ حَيْثُ أَخْرَجُوكُمْ ۚ وَالْفِتْنَةُ أَشَدُّ مِنَ الْقَتْلِ]
“And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you.” [Surah Al-Baqarah 2:191]. The noble Ayaah addresses all the Muslims, wherever they maybe, commanding them to fight the kuffar who expel them. The duty falls upon those who are capable to fight the occupying military forces. Thus, it is upon the armed forces of the Muslims, whether they are in Egypt, Pakistan or Indonesia, to mobilize for the liberation of the whole of Palestine.
Indeed, throughout the era of the ruling by all that Allah (swt) has revealed, the armed forces of Muslims of different regions were gathered together as one force to fight enemy forces. RasulAllah (saw) said,
«إِنَّمَا الْإِمَامُ جُنَّةٌ يُقَاتَلُ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ وَيُتَّقَى بِهِ»
“Indeed, the Imam is a shield, from behind whom you fight and by whom you are protected.” [Muslim] As the first and best Imam of the Muslims, RasulAllah (saw) mobilized military force to drive out the Jews of Qaynuqa’ah from Al-Madinah Al-Munawwara when they violated the honor of a single Muslim woman in their market. Adhering to the Sunnah of RasulAllah (saw), subsequent Imams of Muslims, throughout the era of ruling by all that Allah (swt) has revealed, all acted as shields for the Ummah. Thus, when a single Muslim woman was abused by Romans, the Khaleefah himself led military forces to punish the perpetrators and conquered Amorium, the largest and most powerful city in Asia Minor at the time. And the oppression of Muslim Hujjaj by Modi’s forefather, Raja Dahir, was met with the swords of the army of Muhammad bin Qassim.
Why is it not possible for the armed forces of Pakistan to take their share of the reward of liberating Masjid al-Aqsa? In 1993, troops of Pakistan Army rescued around US soldiers in Somalia, so why can they not be mobilized to rescue Masjid al-Aqsa? If our Pakistan Air Force ace, Saiful Azam, may Allah (swt) have mercy on him, was sent to fight the Jewish entity in 1967, shooting down its planes as a pilot for both the Jordanian Air Force and Iraqi Air Force, why can we not send our modern heroes, such as Squadron Leader Hassan Siddiqui and Wing Commander Nauman Ali Khan, who shot down planes of the Hindu State in February 2019? Why not demand the stationing of our elite Special Services Group (SSG) in Amman to bolster a unified assault on the command center of the Jewish occupation, Tel Aviv? Why not deploy our nuclear weapons to our western most regions to get Tel Aviv into range, projecting our immense capabilities and striking fear in the hearts of the cowardly Jews, who cling hardest of all people to this life? Allah (swt) said,
[وَلَتَجِدَنَّهُمْ أَحْرَصَ النَّاسِ عَلَى حَيَاةٍ]
“And you will surely find them (the Jews) the most greedy of people for life.” [Surah al Baqarah 2:96]. Similarly, why is it not possible for the Muslims of the armed forces of Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Bangladesh, Malaysia and Indonesia to mobilize jointly for the liberation of Occupied Kashmir, even though the Pakistan Army alone is more than enough to drive the divided and demoralized Indian forces?
Clearly, the lands of Muslims are occupied today solely due to the absence of a righteous Imam, ruling by Islam and gathering the Muslims as a single hand against their enemies. Our hearts will bleed until they are healed by a Khaleefah Rashid, (rightly guided Caliph) leading our willing and capable troops in the pursuit of martyrdom and victory. So for the ruling by all that Allah (swt) has revealed, let the believers work!
