Russia-Ukraine War an Opportunity for the Return of the True Global Guardian and Shield, the Khilafah
On Thursday, 24 February 2022, Russia officially invaded Ukraine and currently is engaged in a fierce war. The latest fighting is an escalation of the Russia-Ukraine conflict that started in 2014 as a result of change of leadership in Kiev. Initial the leadership was pro-Russia and was later toppled and replaced by a pro-Western (US and NATO) leadership.
This latest conflict is another exposé of the duplicitous nature of the so-called dominant global power, America in its relationship to other nations. The US under the Obama regime used Russia’s killing machine to quell the sincere revolution in Syria. Trump’s administration threatened European nations (NATO) to double up their financial contributions for their protection against Russia’s threats. Consequently, the Biden regime has instigated war in Europe by inciting and pushing Russia to invade Ukraine militarily and in turn threaten the security of the whole of Europe. In addition, he has declared sanctions to Russia.
Russia suffers from superiority complex due to its old history as the global dominant player when it was the head of the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) before its collapse in 1991 via the same hands of the US’s proxy-war. Hence, it is easily swayed by America’s tactics and finds itself making political blunders that cause its catastrophic damages. Both Russia and Ukraine are being used as political pawns by the American regime to shakeup its foreign policy in readiness to counter the emergence of Chinese competition to US’s economy and any other player who supports China.
It is clear, based on the above, that America thrives in deceitful political maneuvers. Furthermore, all secular capitalist nations are founded upon the same principle of measuring actions based on benefit and interests. So, it is unsurprising to witness Russia invading Ukraine, America invading Iraq etc. each using whatever pretext that suits them as long as the end justify the means. Certainly, the hands of the US regime are dripping with Ukrainians’ blood, since it is the master plotter in the whole conflict! Hence, it is a partner in crime together with the Russian regime.
As for the global hullaballoo, it is just another confirmation that indeed secular capitalist ideology has failed miserable to take care of humanity. Therefore, we are witnessing the immeasurable catastrophes as a result of inconceivable war provocations by the same alleged guardian of peace across the world. Perpetual conflicts are ravaging Somalia, Kashmir, Syria, Libya, Xinjiang, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan etc. These calls are for an alternative genuine guardian and shield against fallacious wars that are NOT for the sake of pleasing Allah (swt). Now is an opportunity to reestablish the Khilafah on the method of Prophethood, an auspicious opening to liberate humanity from the shackles of Kufr to the light of Islam.
The Khilafah (Caliphate) will not only be a true guarantor of peace, but will also strive to restore order and prosperity that is currently missing under this era of secular capitalist ideology, an era where the gap of inequality keeps growing at an alarming rate. In the Khilafah, the policy of haves and have-nots is deeply entrenched and being exploited by a few elites at the apex of power like what is being witnessed today in Kenya and globally at large. The suffering of the people is a business opportunity to economic vultures disguised as entrepreneurs as exposed by the Covid-19! The Khilafah moment is here with us after 101 years (Hijri) of its absence. This is a golden opportunity for any one who works hard for its return, hopes and pray for a better, peaceful, secure and prosperous world. Its return is the only rescuer from these repetitive upheavals. The time to respond to the call of Allah (swt) is now:
(يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اسْتَجِيبُواْ لِلّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُم لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ)
“O you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life.” [Al-Anfal 8: 24].
