Fasting in the holy month of Ramadhan was made compulsory in the 2nd year AH in a period where Muslims were under the shade of their Islamic State led by the Prophet (saw). It was an era from the Prophet (saw) to the many Khulafaa (Caliphs) who took over after his death and all of them ruled as per the Shari’ah (Qur’an and Sunnah). Our wealth and resources were justly distributed to all citizens without being limited to the rich, so that the needy can alleviate their problems. The cries of the oppressed were answered very fast by commanders and soldiers who were running fast in seeking martyrdom (shahada) via Jihad. The elderly, women and children either Muslims or non-Muslims their dignity and honor were prioritized and protected by all means. Indeed, it is through the ruling by Islam as per the Shari’ah that made Ramadhan to become the month of Nussrah and Victory for centuries. During Ramadhan, Islam and Muslims got nussrah and victory in Badr, liberated Makkah, defeated Persians at Al-Buwayb, liberated Amooriyah and defeated Tartars at Ain-Jaloot and other huge events! In that epoch, our flags the Liwah and Rayah used to be hoisted and signaled the presence of a guardian and shield to guarantee justice and mercy to all humanity across the world!
Today, Ramadhan is with us in an age where the Islamic rule as per the Shari’ah (Khilafah) is NOT THERE! Definitely, we are in an era of total darkness, catastrophes, pain and disgrace. Despite having big armies in Muslim lands, everyday victory is to our enemies who have raised their Kufr flags that are filled with blood of our children, our women and our elders! Despite having vast lands filled with abundant resources, still we are languishing in poverty while our backs are in hardships due to scavenging in dirty and we are thrown out and pointed fingers at all over the place. Certainly, Kufr and the Kuffar led by America and their allies are currently continuing intellectual and military attacks against Islam and Muslims in all corners of the world. They are perpetuating the pillaging of our wealth and occupying our lands and violating our sanctities without caring or fearing!
Oh, Muslims are you contented to be ruled by Kufr and the Kuffar by leading us as per their invalid secular capitalist ideology and its systems that advances colonialism in our countries? Dirty systems including that of democracy, which gives man authority to legislate laws contrary to those of Allah (swt)? Stinking social system that champions wickedness and promiscuity in society? An evil economic system founded upon taxation and usury? How will we respond to Allah (swt) when we die in this situation where Kufr and Kuffar are on top of us? While He has already told us: (إِنَّ ٱلدِّينَ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلۡإِسۡلَـٰمُۗ) “Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam.” [Aal-e-Imran: 19] na (وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ ٱلۡإِسۡلَـٰمَ دِينً۬اۚ) “I have approved for you Islam as religion” [Al-Maidah: 3].
Oh, Muslims lets remember that in order to protect our blood, our wealth, our sanctities and our dignity we must embrace Islam completely: (يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ ٱدۡخُلُواْ فِى ٱلسِّلۡمِ ڪَآفَّةً۬) “O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely.” [Al-Baqarah: 208]. Truly, by embracing Islam fully is what will soften the hearts of the Muslims and especially those of the Muslim sons in the armies in our Muslim lands. Furthermore, and cause them to break the servitude chains of serving the agent rulers that look up to London, Washington, Paris etc. by to removing them from power in response to Allah’s (swt) call: (يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ ٱسۡتَجِيبُواْ لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمۡ لِمَا يُحۡيِيڪُمۡۖ) “O you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life.” [A;-Anfal; 24]. Indeed, their response should be in giving Nussrah (military support) to the Islamic party that does not lie to people or does not care about blames from any accuser amongst people who think based on benefits/profit/loss. Moreover, that is the party of Hizb ut Tahrir the guardian and shield of the noble Muslim Ummah and humanity in general. In addition, their giving nussrah is what will ensure the resumption of the Islamic way of life via the reestablishment of the Islamic State of Khilafah (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood.
Oh, Humanity the establishment of the Khilafah is not only a victory to Muslims, but; it is a victory for all humanity in the world! Certainly, all humanity globally are suffering under the evil secular capitalist ideology whose priority is to protect a few amongst the rich in order to perpetuate the rest of humanity into slavery and worshipping them! Ramadhan is a month of victory to humanity; since the Khilafah will be established to provide mercy and services to all humanity as per the Shari’ah and not to cause harm and oppression to them as currently witnessed in secular democratic governments across the world! Truly, the Khilafah will implement the Qur’an comprehensively in order to realize genuine tranquility, development and prosperity to all humanity
(شَہۡرُ رَمَضَانَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أُنزِلَ فِيهِ ٱلۡقُرۡءَانُ هُدً۬ى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَـٰتٍ۬ مِّنَ ٱلۡهُدَىٰ وَٱلۡفُرۡقَانِۚ)
“The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion.”
