Allah (swt) said:
(إِنَّ عِدَّةَ ٱلشُّہُورِ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ ٱثۡنَا عَشَرَ شَہۡرً۬ا فِى ڪِتَـٰبِ ٱللَّهِ يَوۡمَ خَلَقَ ٱلسَّمَـٰوَٲتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضَ مِنۡہَآ أَرۡبَعَةٌ حُرُمٌ۬ۚ ذَٲلِكَ ٱلدِّينُ ٱلۡقَيِّمُۚ فَلَا تَظۡلِمُواْ فِيہِنَّ أَنفُسَڪُمۡ)
“Indeed, the number of months with Allah is twelve (lunar) months in the register of Allah (from) the day He created the heavens and the earth; of these, four are sacred. That is the correct religion, so do not wrong yourselves during them.” [At-Taubah: 36]
Narrated by Abu Bakr (ra) that the Prophet (saw) said:
“The division of time has turned to its original form which was current when Allah created the Heavens and the Earths. The year is of twelve months out of which four months are sacred. Three are in succession Dhul-Qa’da, Dhul-Hijja and Muharram, and the fourth is Rajab of (the tribe of) Mudar which comes between Jumada II and Shaaban.” [Sahih Bukhari]
Narrated by Abu Sa’eed (ra) that the Prophet (saw) said:
“Is not the most sacred of your days this day, is not the most sacred of your months this month, is not the most sacred of your lands this land? Your blood and your wealth are as sacred to you as this day of yours in this month of yours. Have I not conveyed (the message)? They said: “Yes.” He said: “O Allah, bear witness.” [Ibn Majah]
In Shaa Allah by next Friday, we will be in the sacred month of Dhul-Qa’da then followed by Dhul-Hijja the last sacred month. After which Muharram the first sacred month of our Islamic calendar will commence. Certainly, it will be a unique opportunity to witness the said months in which every good is multiplied before Allah (swt). Amongst the good to be prioritized is to be steadfast on the main issue of resuming the Islamic way of life by working to reestablish the Islamic state of Khilafah (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood in one of the Muslim countries in the Muslim world. The said efforts must include study of Islam ideologically, internalize it, practice it and calling for it, in order that it replaces the invalid secular capitalist ideology that is ruling the world today and continues to oppress, spill blood and plunder resources of the Muslims and non-Muslims in all corners of the world.
It is in these sacred months that we Muslims must double our efforts in calling for the reestablishment of the Khilafah since it is a promise from Allah (swt) and a prophecy from the Prophet (saw). Contrary to that is great loss to anyone who is running fast to put obstacles on the way of this da’wah. Including collaborating with agent rulers in the Muslim and non-Muslim world. In order to cast aspersions and cause people to remain in the darkness of kufr and ruled by policies and laws drawn by the hands of Western colonialists and rubberstamped by the parliaments and councils of their agents across the world. On the pretext of fighting Terrorism or Terrorists, Radical Islam/Muslims and Extreme Islam/Muslims. It is a huge loss to declare war to Allah (swt) and His Prophet (saw) in these sacred months by going against His promise and the prophecy!
Undeniably, it is through the reestablishment of the Khilafah that is when Muslims and non-Muslims across the world will feel genuine tranquility, development and prosperity. After almost 98H years, same as 95C years since the destruction of the Islamic state of Khilafah on 28 Rajab 1342AH same as 3 March 1924CE by the hands of the Western agents especially Sharif Hussein and Mustafa Kamal who was a Jewish kufar.
