Hizb ut Tahrir / Malaysia:
Events Marking the 102nd Anniversary of the Destruction of the Khilafah State
In conjunction with the Remembrance of the Fall of the Khilafah (Caliphate) throughout the month of Rajab this year, 1444 AH, Hizb ut Tahrir / Malaysia organised a series of Hybrid Seminars emphasizing on the historical relation between the Khilafah and the Malay World, and the obligation of the Muslims to re-establish it.
Title: The Entry of Islam into Malay World: What You Should Know?
Speaker: 1. Ustaz Abdul Hakim Othman
2. Ustaz Ishan Ibrahim
Malaysia: Seminar “The Link between Caliphate and the Malay World” closing the Rajab 1444H Campaign
KUALA LUMPUR, 19 February 2023 - After a month of carrying out a campaign in remembrance of the fall of the Khilafah / Caliphate on 28 Rajab 1342 Hijri, Hizb ut Tahrir / Malaysia has closed the campaign by holding a hybrid seminar discussing the topic.
A Nusantara (Malay Archipelagos) historian expert from Indonesia, Ustaz Nicko Pandawa, was invited as a special guest in the seminar who delivered his paper work entitled "Caliphate and the Malay World: Relation of Jihad in Resisting Western Colonization".
Ustaz Nicko is also a director of the film "Jejak Khilafah di Nusantara" (Footsteps of the Caliphate in Nusantara), the film which is widely talked about in Indonesia, and he is also an author of several historical books on the relationship between Nusantara and the Caliphate.
Other panelists include Dr. Tarmizi Salleh, Prof. Dr. Muhammad Abu al-Ain and Ustaz Abdul Hakim Othman, each presented papers entitled: "The History of the Relationship between the Malay World and the Caliphate", "Unveiling the Western Agenda to Eliminate Islamic Thought in Nusantara " and "Nusantara & the Obligation to Re-establish the Caliphate" respectively.
The seminar started around 10.00 am and ended around 1.00 pm and all praise be to Allah, it went smoothly.
Among the important messages delivered in this seminar are the awareness that the Nusantara-Muslims should have with regard to the strong and authentic historical evidences, that the Caliphate and the Malay world have a fairly close relationship and the rulers in Nusantara generally recognize the position and authority of the Caliph being the supreme leader of all Muslims around the world.
What is most important for Muslims to take note and remember, especially in conjunction with the month of the fall of the Caliphate, which has been a dark history for Muslims, is about the obligation to re-establish this great political institution with seriousness.
Only by this way the Muslims would be able to restore the glory of Islam, unite the Muslims, defeat the enemies of Islam, reinstate the dignity of this Ummah and restore Islam as the super power of the world. This is the message from each panelist in this seminar despite of the topics discussed.
Although the month of Rajab has ended, the efforts and calls of Hizb ut Tahrir to re-establish the Khilafah Rashidah (Righteous Caliphate) on the method of the Prophethood will never end until Allah (swt) fulfills His promise.

In this Seminar, both speakers discussed on the history of how Islam came to the Malay World. Both speakers highlighted the active role of the Ulamas and envoys sent by the Khilafah in spreading the message of Islam to the Malay World, in contrast to the views by certain historians that the spread of Islam to this region was solely a “by-product” of the Muslim merchants from the Middle East and India.
After proving that the coming of Islam to the Malay World is inseparable with the orders and obligation of Khilafah to spread Islam across the globe, the speakers stressed the points that the history of Khilafah is not only to be studied, but also to be understood as part of Islamic divine rules especially on the obligation of Muslims being united under its rule.
Title: The Historical Links Between Khilafah and the Malay World
Speaker: 1. Bro. Abbas Ismail
2. Dr. Norazlan Shah
In this Seminar, both speakers discussed the historical relationship between the Khilafah and the Malay World. Br. Abbas presented the empirical evidences from artefacts and manuscripts to prove the existence of active relation between the Khilafah and rulers in this region. It is evident that the relationship between Khilafah and rulers in the Malay World has been established as early as the Ummayad times.
Meanwhile, Dr. Norazlan provided a lot of evidence in support of the good relation between Khilafah Uthmaniyyah and the Malays in this region especially during the First World War and the demise of the Khilafah afterwards. The relation was so close and obvious, despite of all hindrances and threats posed by the Western colonialists to the Malays.
Title: The Fall of Khilafah, the West Invasion and the Fight of the Malay World
Speaker: Dr Muhammad Abu Al-Ain
In this Seminar, the speaker stressed on the efforts of the weakening Khilafah Uthmaniyyah (Ottoman Caliphate) in re-strengthening the Islamic bond between the Khilafah and Muslims of the world, including in the Malay lands. He then moved on to the events that brought about the fall of the Khilafah in Turkey.
The speaker then continues with the colonisation efforts of the West to conquer the Muslim worlds and the efforts of Muslims in the Malay World to fight against the Western colonial powers. Several facts were presented to show that the Malay World had a close relationship with the Khilafah which was manifested in its effort to fight the colonising West, especially the British.
Title: The Western Efforts in Preventing the Re-Establishment of Khilafah
Speaker: 1. Dr. Norazlan Shah
2. Bro. Wan Hisham Wan Salleh
The first speaker explained in detail about the British agenda and efforts to prevent Malay-Muslims to return to Islamic ruling since its occupation in the Malay Land. They have not only occupied the land and implemented their ruling system, but also spent all efforts to prevent the Muslims in this region to re-build any relation with the Khilafah, and finally to prevent the re-establishment of the Khilafah.
The second speaker highlighted the global efforts by the West to prevent the Muslim Ummah to return to Khilafah upon the method of the Prophethood. The speaker also stressed the importance of Muslims to realize the Kuffar agenda in keeping us separated and weak by nation-states and nationalism planted in the body of the Ummah.
