Muslim Council of Elders Should Use Wisdom and Call for Khilafah to Save the Children of the World
On the 20th of November 2022, the Muslim Council of Elders (MCE) represented by Judge Mohamed Abdelsalam made a public address calling for the protection of Muslim children and the world’s children under the multi-faith banner agreed in 2019. In that year a meeting was held in Abu Dhabi and a Document on Human Fraternity was signed by His Eminence Professor Ahmed Al-Tayeb, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar and Chairman of the Muslim Council of Elders, and His Holiness Pope Francis in Abu Dhabi that called for global protection of children.
His comments came during the MCE’s participation in the World Day of Prayer and Action for Children 2022 Conference, co-organised by Arigato International and the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome under the theme ‘World Day of Prayer and Action for Children 2022’.
Abdelsalam added that there are millions of children suffering because of the ongoing wars, conflicts, and crises. “These conditions have multiplied the numbers of refugees, displaced families, and the children on the move leaving their homes and communities, although they have done nothing wrong.”
Multi-faith platforms are liberal secular attempts to dilute the true Islamic solutions and doves Muslims from the comprehensive political system that takes care of all of the Muslims needs, young and old. These platforms are sponsored well by Western entities that recruit Muslim voices to rally the Ummah around anything other than the Khilafah (Caliphate).
We must realize that these “wars” and devastation spoken about in these meetings are a direct consequence of the very Western ideas that are supposed to have the solutions. Capitalistic greed, corporate hegemony and political corruption are the root cause of the oppression faces by children globally. The drones dropping bombs on children whilst they study in various parts of the Muslim world are never going to stop without the power of the Muslims armies defending the Deen of Islam practically.
The starving children in Yemen, Syria, Africa and Afghanistan are never going to have food security or physical security without an organized system uniting the resources of the Ummah. With 200 billion dollars spent on World Cup stadiums in Qatar the criminal action of our leaders is clear, the abuse of power will only end with the rightly guided Khalifah (caliph) and the affairs of the Ummah in the management of the Sharia.
