Democracy is a system of Kufr. It is forbidden to adopt, implement or call for it



by Abdul Qadeem Zalloom
Download the book from here
A debate is currently taking place in the Muslim world on whether democracy is against Islam or not. With Islamic parties taking power in Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt this debate has intensified as these parties attempt to justify their actions. In addition to this some people are actively promoting Erdogan's secular-democratic Turkish regime as a role model for governments post Arab spring.
Much of the debate on Islam and democracy is based on pragmatic thinking rather than the Islamic way of thinking. The correct approach to the question of whether democracy contradicts Islam or not is to study the reality of democracy in depth and then study the Islamic texts of Qur'an and Sunnah for an answer.
This book written on the 3rd Dhul-Qida 1410AH, 27th May 1990 by the late Sheikh Abdul Qadeem Zalloom (May Allah have mercy on him) follows such an approach and shows that democracy far from being a model for Muslims is in fact a system of kufr that is forbidden to adopt, implement or call for

Gold Standard: The future for a stable global currency

With the European sovereign debt crisis threatening to dissolve the Eurozone and the US with record budget and trade deficits the world is facing a monetary crisis.
Central to the sovereign debt, housing and financial derivatives bubbles has been the provision of cheap and abundant credit. Money that has been simply manufactured from the keyboards or printing presses of Central bankers. As long as the financial system allows the effective counterfeiting of paper currency to meet ever increasing central spending – inflation and instability will ensue.
The only policy option of the politicians and bankers has been to print more money. This currency devaluation is a last desperate attempt to engender recovery. It is time to consider again alternatives to this unstable fiat paper regime.
With the thorough discrediting of much of the worlds banking system throughout the recent crisis there is an opportunity to re-examine the monetary pillars of western banking. This new paper from Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain examines the question of can and should the world return to the gold standard.
The debate is started by setting out the 10 main arguments against the gold standard. We examine these arguments and present counter arguments to explore whether they are still valid, and whether they are insurmountable in the quest for a more stable currency in an unstable world.

Strategic Estimate 2012

Download the book from here.
Strategic Estimate is Khilafah.com's annual assessment on the global trends, the emerging trends and the developments that have taken shape during the year between the world's powers.
2011 will remain long in the memory when the history books are finally written. What has now come to be known as the Arab spring began with a single man in the markets of Tunisia, which then spread to thousands on the streets in Cairo and evolved to hundreds of thousands demanding political change in the Muslim world. The self immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi in Tunisia created a sweeping wave, which crossed the artificial borders in the Muslim world encompassing Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Bahrain until it engulfed most of the Muslim world. 2011's Strategic Estimate, Khilafah.com's annual assessment of the global balance of power is dominated by the Arab spring.
We concluded in our 2011 assessment that the US remained the world's superpower, however it had been over-stretched in both the wars it was engaged in after the events of 9/11, this led to a number of nations taking a more confident and in some cases a confrontational approach to the US in the different regions of the world. In 2011, America, the world superpower and the world's largest economy every year since 1870 had its credit rating downgraded as doubts surfaced about its ability to repay its ever growing debts. Unable to pull itself out of recession and extricate itself from deployments across the world the end of the American century continues to dominate discourse about the American empire.
The challenges to America stem primarily from Russia and China. Both have made significant progress in strengthening themselves in the face of US global domination. Russia continued with its resurgence in its periphery and took a more cooperative approach to strengthening itself which is a departure from the more aggressive policy which has dominated the Kremlin for the last decade. 2011 was dominated by Russia surging ahead with its attempts to modernise and fill the technology gap the nation faces due to the decline it under went after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
China's economy continued to surge ahead in 2011, however many questions remain on the sustainability of the economic model driving Chinese growth as the global economy fails to grow. China made a number of political moves to strengthen itself in its region and achieved significant milestones by rolling out its first aircraft carrier and developing its first stealth fighter jet.
The global economy at the end of 2011 is in a worse position than it was in 2010. With the European sovereign debt crises spreading and the failure of the world's premier economies in generating economic growth, a double dip recession dominated the global economy in 2011. This economic crisis has brought the European Union to virtual breaking point as various Eurozone nations came to the brink of defaulting on their debts. 2011 was dominated by Europe's premier powers attempting to redesign Europe – this has led to the emergence of Germany – a country whose prospects we asses.
Not surprisingly Iran made the headlines again late in 2011 as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) released its report about Iran's attempts to enrich uranium and develop a nuclear device. We analyse this recurring episode in order to separate rhetoric from reality. We also analyse the conception of weapons of mass destruction (WMD's) their reality and role in the global balance of power.
What follows' inshallah is the author's opinion and assessment of 2011 and the trends for 2012 and beyond. Like any assessment, they are estimates and forecasts

Emerging World Order - The Islamic Khilafah State

The world is at a cross road. Our time is difficult. The present is unstable. But Insha‘Allah the future is bright. The signs of 'American century' coming to an end are very clear. Anyone with profound knowledge can see this very happening. America is becoming weak. She is weary. She is fragile. Her global reach has been dented. Her global ambition is even challenged by countries like North Korea. She does not solely control the world any more. She is stabbed by the apparent rise of Russia and China. But there is an even bigger challenge she is facing; saving her status quo in remaining in the reign of world‘s only global state.

The role of Muslim Women in re-establishing the Khilafah

Download the book from here.
It is not a hidden fact that today all man made systems, based on rebellion against Allah, have failed to solve the problems of humanity. After the fall of socialism, the whole world is dominated by a secular, democratic, capitalist system and the world is in great misery under the brutal grip of this invalid, Western system.
This very system is being implemented in the Muslim World, as a result of which the whole society is facing severe problems, whether social life or economy or politics. And despite believing in the only true Deen, the Muslim Ummah, which once ruled most of the world, is declined and drowned in problems and crises. This situation is not unexpected, because it is an inevitable consequence of abandoning the system revealed by Allah the system of Khilafah.
This booklet is a call to the women in Pakistan to join their Muslim sisters who are working for this noble cause throughout the Muslim World, and in doing so remove the sin from our necks, and gain the pleasure of Allah for our efforts.

Strategic Estimate 2011

Download the book from here.
Strategic Estimate 2011 is the second annual assessment of the global balance of power by Khilafah.com. Our assessment focuses on the global trends, the emerging trends and the developments that have taken shape during the year between the world's powers. We also give our assessment on what is likely to occur in 2011 based on the current international situation.
We concluded in our 2010 assessment that the US remained the world's superpower, however it had been over-stretched in both the wars it was engaged in after the events of 9/11, this led to a number of nations taking a more confident and in some cases a confrontational approach to the US in the different regions of the world.
In 2010, the US worked to extricate itself from the Iraq and Afghan wars which depleted her resources and undermined her prowess. Troop levels in Iraq became synonymous with success to the US public. The US attempted to pursue the same policy in Afghanistan, but found the conditions much different to the fertile ground it found in Iraq. 2010 saw the world's superpower consumed with attempting to disengage from foreign policy ambitions that were undertaken at the beginning of the 21st century.
The major development in 2010 was the successful expansion of Russian influence in its periphery. With the US marred in two wars Russia for the last decade has been working to reverse US attempts through NATO and the European Union expansion in bringing the former Soviet republic under its influence. Russia in 2010 worked to end the colour revolutions instigated by the US in order to expand its influence beyond its immediate territory.
The global economy at the end of 2009 was coming out of recession and had averted global economic collapse. The trillions spent on stimulus plans and quantitative easing (the printing of money) ensured this, however this money was meant to kick start economic growth. The quest for economic growth characterised the global economy in 2010.
2010 also saw the rise of Turkey as a regional player. In this report we asses Turkey's foreign policy positions and analyse its trajectory and ask the question if Turkey is an independent power?
What follows' inshallah is the author's opinion and assessment of 2010 and the trends for 2011 and beyond. Like any assessment, they are merely estimates and forecasts; as global politics is always in a state of flux such an assessment will never remain static.

Afghanistan - The West's unwinnable war

Download the report from here.
A major sign of incompetence is a person who does the same thing over and over again while each time expecting different results. President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Gordon Brown seem to be trapped in such an illusion. In 2001, when Western leaders ordered the invasion of Afghanistan, they set out their objectives for its occupation. They talked of bringing peace to the region, establishing a government which is accountable, promoting economic and industrial development, ending opium trade and securing the rights of the Afghan people.
At the end of the decade, the West has been unable to deliver in Afghanistan. Instead, the people of Afghanistan have been subjected to a brutal occupation, thousands of civilians have been killed and many Afghans have witnessed firsthand the West's empty promises of ‘freedom' and ‘human rights' when detained and tortured in Bagram and Kandahar. The Karzai regime, thoroughly discredited by ineptitude, corruption and dealings with brutal warlords, continues to be propped up by both London and Washington. The opium trade is booming and politicians with close ties to the West are alleged to be wrapped up in it. There is no economic or industrial development and despite pledges of billions of dollars in aid, there is little evidence of the rebuilding of Afghanistan that was promised.
After eight years the West has lost any form of moral authority to continue its occupation and its support of the widely discredited Karzai regime. There is no cogent reason to believe that they would even begin to make progress given another eight years. The neo-colonial mission in Afghanistan has failed. The West and its client regime in Kabul have no legitimacy or credibility in the eyes of the Afghan people or wider Muslim world. This eight year long folly must now come to an end.
Although it was their warmongering predecessors who launched the Afghan war, both Obama and Brown have decided to double down and have devoted more resources in a vain attempt to "finish the job." But with no coherent strategy, an excess use of violent tactics coupled with gross incompetence, NATO rule has led to Afghanistan being controlled by drug barons and corrupt officials. Far from being able to defeat Al-Qaeda or the Taliban in Afghanistan, the war will cause more resentment and hatred especially in the Muslim world where the West's reputation is already in tatters perpetuating instability and chaos. Yet after the defeat in Iraq, the continued failure in Afghanistan and being fully exposed under the war on terror, Obama and Brown are now engaged in an "undeclared" war in Pakistan to destabilise yet another country in the Muslim world.
Though the overt neo-conservative agenda may have ended with the previous US administration, its spirit lives on with active wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and now undeclared wars in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. There is little doubt that the latest strategy articulated by the president of the United States in his West Point speech of 1st December 2009, like all the previous strategies conducted since October 2001, will fail and that Afghanistan will continue to suffer as a nation and as a people
This is because these strategies were not just hopelessly executed, but hopelessly conceived. The analysis of Western war strategists is that the Afghan war has been under resourced due to the war in Iraq and this explains the resurgence of the Taliban. The proponents of the new strategy believe that the lack of troops has led to the people of Afghanistan to lose confidence in NATO's ability to provide greater security, a pre-requisite for effective governance. Lacking economic opportunities, ordinary Afghanis in particular the Pashtuns, effectively channelled their frustrations through joining the Taliban as the latter provided both salaries and status. Due to the perception that the central Afghan government was corrupt, these people turned to violence against NATO, seeing them as defenders of a corrupt status quo, to drain the swamp of radicalism the supporters of the new strategy believe that the US should increase troops in the short term and peel off those who are not hard core ideologues in the insurgency. By regaining momentum, the West believes they can then build up Afghanistan's indigenous security forces to take over from NATO at some undefined future date. However, to ensure this strategy works effectively Pakistan must also be fixed through a mix of getting the Pakistanis to do more and escalating covert US military action.

Democracy in Crisis

Download the book from here.
What started as an experiment in Athens over two thousand years ago eventually pervaded every continent and every land. Democracy, Democracy, Democracy is the repeated call that bellows from the four corners of the globe. It is the established order in a chaotic and unstable world, where every critic of democracy is viewed with heretical suspicion. For every political problem, we are told, lies a democratic solution. For every civilization, for every country for every tribe, for every time - goes the mantra - democracy is the claimed answer to all our ills. In the poetic words of a RAWA (Revolutionary Association of the Women in Afghanistan) activist, democracy will cure all wounds and bring a dawn of freedom.
O' freedom sun, Thrust in darkness, Democracy will cure the wounds, Which emerge from your blood-stained soil. O' saddened nation, Fight your antagonists. Take revenge for your martyrs, On the enemy of democracy and woman. We shall bring through knowledge, Through blood and smoke We shall bring the dawn of freedom, The morn of democracy. Meena's flag on the shoulders of women Who will sing she is our pride O' People, arise Fight the enemies of democracy In revenge for the blood of your beloved martyrs. And as a message for your fighters.
Yet recent events conform to a remark by John Adams, the second President of the United States. "Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." Adams' remarks were true then and are fast becoming true now, especially in the Western world, the heart of the democracy's home turf.
Corruption, incompetence, growing debt and a feeling that politics just doesn't work for the ordinary man is now prevalent in most if not all major democratic countries.
Moreover, since 9-11, democracy has slaughtered so many sacred cows, plunged to ever-deeper moral lows and increasingly become what it was, theoretically, supposed to oppose: corrupt, paranoid and tyrannical rule.
Yet before we get into a detailed discussion around the merits and demerits of democracy, it is important to define precisely what we mean by the word democracy - for it means many things to many people.
Some use the term in a linguistic sense: to characterise consultative behaviour. A company boss is considered democratic if he or she consults their team on a regular basis, in contrast to those who are considered dictators when they bark orders and expect to be followed. Others refer to any type of election - from the school council to high political office - as democratic.
Also, liberal secular societies do not have a monopoly on claiming democracy as their own. Many communist countries during the Cold War era described themselves as democratic republics; and even Saddam Hussein's Iraq had Presidential elections. But those for whom free and fair elections are the key characteristic of a democracy would not give democratic legitimacy to those held in communist states or in dictatorships, where only one party exists.
Others view democracy as more than just elections - that democracies should be characterised by other values and institutions. That alongside regular elections there must be liberal values, a functioning legislative chamber, a vibrant opposition, a free media, civil society and an independent judiciary.
For some, especially from the libertarian viewpoint, democracy should not be equated with liberalism; the latter considered to be the end goal, whilst the former needing to be limited in order to avoid a nation becoming illiberal through the passing of authoritarian legislation. That is why many would describe the United States as a republic rather than a democracy.
For the purposes of this pamphlet, we have defined democracy as the political system that institutionalises legislative sovereignty - in either the people directly - or in their elected representatives.
This pamphlet seeks to address the democratic system as articulated and implemented in most of the well developed and emerging democracies in the world today. Another key assumption we make is that we believe that democracy cannot be separated from secularism. Though many have argued that religion and democracy are compatible, this may be right in the private arena but cannot be the case in the public space - where either religion or democracy can enjoy primacy, but never both at the same time. Religions inherently believe that laws and values are the product of divine revelation without human involvement whereas democracy is about subjecting everything to human scrutiny and passing laws by numerical majorities.
This short pamphlet is divided into three chapters. The first chapter seeks to present the theoretical weaknesses of secular democracy and articulate a deeper critique of the core pillars that underpin the secular democratic model. The second uses brief case studies of secular democracy in practice to illustrate the theoretical weaknesses highlighted earlier - the United States, United Kingdom and India - as well as an emerging secular democracy in Afghanistan. We will illustrate the growing gap between the rhetoric and reality in these democratic states. In the last section we use a Q and A format to present a summary of the Islamic Caliphate system. Though no one is suggesting that is an imminent alternative for non-Muslim countries, the same cannot be said in for the Muslim world, where the Caliphate has tried and trusted solutions and certainly a practical alternative. Of course, human implementation within the Caliphate will not be perfect in any way, but for those who believe that the sources for its legislation emanate from a divine entity (whose existence Muslims should rationally prove as a precursor) that fully understands the huge complexity of life and the nature of human beings; something human beings on their own could never comprehend. Islamic principles are by their nature less subject to personal whim, constant change, political expediency or public fickleness while at the same time remaining flexible enough through the process of Ijtihad to deal with new emerging realities.

The Ruling on Muslim Participation in the Political Life of the West

أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى الَّذِينَ يَزْعُمُونَ أَنَّهُمْ آمَنُواْ بِمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ وَمَا أُنزِلَ مِن قَبْلِكَ يُرِيدُونَ أَن يَتَحَاكَمُواْ إِلَى الطَّاغُوتِ وَقَدْ أُمِرُواْ أَن يَكْفُرُواْ بِهِ وَيُرِيدُ الشَّيْطَانُ أَن يُضِلَّهُمْ ضَلاَلاً بَعِيدًا
"Have you seen those who claim that they believe in that which has been sent down to you, and that which has been sent down before you, and they wish to go for judgement (in their disputes) to the Taghut (false judges) while they have been ordered to reject them. But Shaytan wishes to lead them far astray." [4:60]
In 2003 members of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Europe looked at the much discussed issue of the Muslim participation in the political life of the West, and issued a short booklet explaining the Islamic ruling on the issue - based upon Quran, Sunnah, Ijma' as-Sahabah and Qiyas.
Prior to this, some Muslims viewed the issue purely from the basis of their own material interests or those of the Muslim community at large.
Others looked at the issue from a ‘pseudo-Islamic' viewpoint - ‘pseudo-Islamic', because from the outset those thinkers looked, not from the perspective of Islam, but by assuming that engagement within the Western system was the only practical means for Muslims to engage in non-Muslim countries - just as others had previously assumed that political engagement in Muslim countries could only practically be done by engaging in the kufr systems that exist there. These Muslims were not necessarily insincere, but misguided. They usually accepted that secularism (the separation of deen from dunya) and that legislation by other than what Allah revealed were kufr. However, they argued pragmatically that the ‘procedural' elements of the secular democratic system - i.e. elections - were permissible, even if the ‘philosophical' elements were impermissible. Regardless of their intention, the result was a confused set of ideas that accept that the Western system is the accepted standard - and that an Islamic argument should be brought to explore how it could be used.
This approach fundamentally differs from an Islamic approach. Looking at the Islamic ruling on an issue requires that the issue be viewed objectively and dispassionately, before measuring it against the Islamic texts. The conclusion is then accepted as it is - whether it accords with ones desires or not - and any political strategy should then be proposed based upon what Islam obliges, and within the limits of what Islam permits.
Whilst the examples and details contained within this book are based on the systems that exist in continental Europe, there is much that can be learned by Muslims who live in other places where the systems might differ in some of the details.
The book concludes with some broad principles of how Muslims living in the West should develop their political activity:
1. Restricting ourselves to the Halal means alone
2. Not sacrificing the interests of the global Ummah for a local gain
3. Remaining united as a community rather than allowing ourselves to be divided
4. Looking to achieve a degree of self-reliance, so that Muslims are not beholden to others.
We pray that Muslims find a benefit in this work produced by our brothers and sisters in Europe - in particular at a time when the discussion in Britain is on-going.

The End of the American Century and the Rise of the Rest

Download the book from here.
The USA began the 21st century as the world's unrivalled superpower. Globally the USA touched everyone in different ways, through Hollywood, US technology - Microsoft, fast food - MacDonald's, fizzy drinks - Coca Cola, news media - CNN, print media - the New York Times, International Herald Tribune, internet - Google, Yahoo, and finance - Wall Street. For over a century the United States of America has dominated politics, economics, foreign policy and globalisation.
When George W Bush became president of the US in 2001 the Neoconservatives, who filled his government, spoke of the need to project US power well into the next century. They spoke of international commitments, International law and global treaties in their ‘project for the 21st century,' hindering US prowess and the US didn't need them as it was the world superpower.
In 2010 the US position in the world is very different. America's role in the world is being questioned by the US public themselves. The war on terror and its subsequent wars have caused a fault line as the US continues to be consumed with two wars which have now lasted longer than WW2 and show little signs of ending anytime soon. US conduct in the wars has led to many questioning their previously held views on America's global role. Guantanamo Bay, Abu Ghraib, extraordinary rendition, torture, anti-terror legislation and secret trials have now become symbols of America, a far cry from Hollywood, Human Rights, Democracy and the Free Market America was known for the last few decades.
At Khilafah.com we continue to receive many questions regarding the status of the US, will it remain the world's superpower? Many have asked us if the US is in decline and is it on the verge of being replaced as the words superpower. Many have also asked us who possibly will replace the US. China's phenomenal economic growth in the last few decades, the rise of India, Russia's resurgence, Germany for long the world's largest exporter and countries such as Brazil and Turkey have all been proposed by various thinkers as possible emerging powers vying for America's throne when the inevitable happens.
In this book we asses the current status of the US, how it rose to the post of the world's superpower and assess if such conditions are deteriorating and if indeed the US will cease to be the world's superpower. We also assess the possible challengers to the US and their prospects at replacing the US as the superpower, we will also assess the challenges and obstacles such nations face in reaching such a zenith.

The Sixty Sultaniyya - A collection of narrations relating to Ruling


Download the book from here.
Over the centuries there have been many collections of hadith compiled with the intention of reminding the Muslims the ahkam of Allah سبحانه وتعالى so as to apply them in their lives. The most famous, that many have read and benefitted from, is the Forty Hadith compiled by Imam Nawawi.
But today the most neglected of the commands of Allah سبحانه وتعالى is the command to rule by what Allah has revealed to His Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم.
Allah سبحانه وتعالى says in His Book:
وَأَنْزَلْنَا إِلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ بِالْحَقِّ مُصَدِّقًا لِمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ وَمُهَيْمِنًا عَلَيْهِ فَاحْكُمْ بَيْنَهُمْ بِمَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ وَلَا تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ عَمَّا جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْحَقِّ لِكُلٍّ جَعَلْنَا مِنْكُمْ شِرْعَةً وَمِنْهَاجًا
And We have sent down to you (O Mohammad ) this Book (the Quran) in truth, confirming the Scripture that came before it and the Mohaymin (trustworthy in highness and a witness) over it, so judge amongst them by what Allah has revealed, and follow not their vain desires away from the truth that has come to you. To each among you we have proscribed a law and a clear way. [TMQ 5:48]
This book is a brief compilation of hadith related to ruling. It is a small selection but it is hoped that it serves to illustrate how central to Islam was its ruling system, and the manner of the just ruler as opposed to the characteristics of the evil one, and the nature of the application of the rule, the role of the Ummah in accounting those in authority, and the painful consequences if this is neglected.
It is our prayer that these neglected Sunan - and the countless others related to governance be revived and enacted in the Islamic world under the shade of the next Rightly Guided Khilafah.
That prayer is also a promise of Allah سبحانه وتعالى who said:
وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُم فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَى لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُم مِّن بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا وَمَن كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ
Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their religion, the one which He has chosen for them; and that He will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace: `They will worship Me (alone) and not associate aught with Me.' If any do reject Faith after this, they are rebellious and wicked. [TMQ 24: 55]

The intention has been to present a selection of narrations which are reliable, and there are end notes regarding the various chains of narrations used other than those mentioned from the sahihain, Bukhari and Muslim.
May Allah accept this work, forgive us our shortcomings, and bring victory to this Ummah.

Constructing the Khilafah's Foreign Policy


Download the book from here.
Introduction
A nation's foreign policy is one of the most significant factors that determine a nation's shape and architecture. A nation with a foreign policy whose objective is to trade, only results in an economy that is consumer oriented. As the country itself does not have a military capability, it leaves the economy open to interference by military powers. Countries such as Norway, Sweden, Morocco and the UAE have such a foreign policy. Given most wars are fought over resources and trade, such a policy will never lead to political or economic independence for a nation. President Woodrow Wilson once said: "Is there any man, is there any woman, let me say any child here that does not know that the seed of war in the modern world is industrial and commercial rivalry?"
In today's world where nations have become so interconnected it is impossible to function in isolation of other nations. The Khilafah state does not function in isolation to the rest of the world, this was clearly the case at the time of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم as well as the history of the Islamic state under the Khilafah. Engaging with other states is a necessary and integral part of state policy for which Islam has clearly defined principles and objectives which the Islamic state adopts and implements to ensure that the call to Islam is not stagnant or restricted to the boundaries of the Khilafah state but rather a conscience effort is made to convey the Islamic call to the rest of the world.
International relations - the structure of the relations between the states of the world are central to any nation and its status in the world. Relations between all nations are built upon some basic policies, such polices can be built upon ideological principles whereby both domestic and foreign polices are constructed upon the aims of an ideology. Or in some cases a nation may not have a fixed policy so it is pragmatic using its geographical location, history or religion as a basis to build relations with other states in the world.
Competition between the world's powers is something that has existed from the beginning of time and will continue until the day of judgement. In ancient times Egypt under the pharaohs was the super power and Mesopotamia competed with it. The Roman Empire became the superpower and the Persian Empire competed with it. The Khilafah then defeated the remnants of the Persian and Byzantine empires and was the world's superpower until the 18th century facing challenges from the Mongols and the crusaders during this time. France and England then competed with the Uthmani Khilafah for nearly three centuries until the mid-18th century. On the eve of WW1 Germany shifted the global balance of power, whilst France and Britain competed with it. After WW1 Britain emerged as the worlds power and France competed with it. Germany once again challenged Britain as the world's superpower and only WW2 stopped German hegemony. The US emerged the world's superpower after WW2 and was challenged by the Soviet Union for five decades until its collapse in 1990.
Since the Islamic Ummah is entrusted with carrying the Islamic message to the world, it is indispensable for Ummah to stay in touch with world affairs. The Ummah needs to understand and comprehend the global circumstances, understand its problems, be aware of the motives of different states and nations and pursue the political actions that take place in the world. Therefore, it is essential for all Muslims to understand the reality of the situation of the Islamic world in light of understanding the global international situation. This is vital so polices can be developed to convey Islam to the world.
Any newly emergent nation will need to ascertain who the global powers are, their histories and their policies, based upon this a newly emergent Khilafah can develop policies in order to achieve its objectives in the global political landscape.
The aim of this booklet is to understand the global situation, the nations that have the most influence in the world and the political plans and styles that the world's powers have adopted. This book will attempt to look at how Islam deals with foreign relations and how it can acts as a basis for the future Khilafah in order to deal with the different political realities. As the international situation at any given time is in a state of flux, the current global situation will be used as a basis to develop some guidelines, which could then be used to construct foreign policy positions. As there are many overlapping issues that need to be taken account when constructing a nation's foreign policy, this report has stopped short of presenting foreign policy positions and will restrict itself to presenting a set of guidelines. A series of guidelines to build the Khilafah's foreign policy as well as suggestions on areas for focus will be explored as developing any foreign policy requires an analysis of multiple issues which is beyond the remit of this booklet. As such guidelines are time specific, such positions are the opinion of the author and are liable for change when the international situation changes.

Constructing an Industrialised Muslim World

Introduction
Iran made history in February 2009 when it launched into orbit the Muslim world's first domestically constructed satellite. What made this development even more stunning is the fact that under sanctions and with a belligerent US continually spreading propaganda against Iran, it has managed to indigenously develop a space based programme.
Iran has managed to develop advanced ballistic missiles and now satellites and is the only Muslim country to have launched these with little external help.
Industrialisation can be defined as when an economy is geared around manufacturing and this then acts as a stimulus to other sectors of the economy. An example of this was the British Empire which made manufacturing central to its economy. The manufacturing of ships, ammunitions and mining propelled Britain into a global superpower with the ability to rapidly mobilise for war and allowed it to colonise the world. In times of peace such industries were used for civilian purposes.
This is the fundamental reason for any nation wanting to industrialise, having an independent manufacturing base makes a nation self-sufficient and become capable of opposing the leading states. By not industrialising a nation will not be politically and economically independent, it will be reliant on other nations for its defence and it will always be dependent on the will of other states, like the Islamic world is today.
If we look across the Muslim world there has in fact been some technological and military developments even though these nations have not industrialised. However the overall economic and industrial standing of the Muslim world is very far from where it can be and should be. The Muslim world today lags far behind the industrial nations of the world. Whilst the West went through industrialisation 150 years ago the Muslim world has remained largely unindustrialised and in many cases reliant on the developed world.
Many commentators and analysts across the world have portrayed the Muslim world to lack the necessary ingredients to develop. They cite the education systems across the Muslim world as still residing in the medieval era. They have argued that the Muslim world lacks the rationality that the West has taken towards enquiry and science as necessary prerequisites. Many liberal thinkers have even argued Islam is the obstacle holding the Muslim world back and that only through a reformation can salvation occur.
At the same time the Muslim rulers managed the economies of the Muslim world with little direction, they have relied upon short term policies and on the very few occasions due to impending war's have funded elements of industry, but even this was driven largely for nationalist reasons rather than for the long term benefit of the Ummah. The Muslim rulers in the Middle East have constantly argued they cannot regain Palestine due to the military might of Israel, Yasser Arafat argued on many occasions at Palestinian refugee camps that Israel's possession of nuclear weapons meant negotiations were the only means to tackle the Palestinian issue. Pervez Musharraf argued he had no choice but to support the US in its efforts in Afghanistan as Pakistan had no political power or a military deterrent, large enough and hence was too weak in the face of US demands.
The aim of the book is to asses the current status of the economies and position of the industries in the Muslim world. The claims by the Muslim rulers will be assessed as well as many of the assertions Western analysts have made about the prospects of industrialisation in the Muslim world. The reality and prospects of the Muslim world will be shown alongside the myths that unfortunately have become accepted as truths amongst Muslims. A general blueprint will then be outlined showing how the Khilafah could industrialise the Muslim lands and change the status of the Muslim world from its current malaise to one of a superpower.

Does Islam Oppress Women?

Download the book from here.
Introduction
Nothing has received more vilification from commentators and writers across the world than the issue of Islam's view on women. Images of fully covered women, with veils across their faces, leap to mind whenever the media discusses the issue. The treatment of women in any society has become a key benchmark measurement to its progress so when the Muslim world is assessed it miserably fails on the standard Western tests ranging from the treatment of women to their involvement in society.
This has led to a number of ferocious attacks on Islam:
"We all know that the Taliban is a regime that denies all its citizens even the most basic of human rights, and for women that has been particularly acute. Things that women in our country take for granted, just to be able to enjoy life publicly with our families, to dress as we please. All of these things are forbidden. In Afghanistan if you wear nail polish, you could have your nails torn out. Well, that may seem a trivial example, but it is an example, nonetheless, of the oppression of women, and nothing more I think symbolises the oppression of women than the burkha which is a very visible sign of the role of women in Afghanistan and we had some interesting discussions about what it is like to wear a burkha and how difficult it makes just ordinary, everyday living..."
and
"Islam is deeply anti-woman. Islam is the fundamental cause of the repression of Muslim women and remains the major obstacle to the evolution of their position. Islam has always considered women as creatures inferior in every way: physically, intellectually, and morally. This negative vision is divinely sanctioned in the Koran, corroborated by the hadiths, and perpetuated by the commentaries of the theologians, the custodians of Muslim dogma and ignorance."
and
"Hundreds of women get shot, burned, strangled, stoned, poisoned, beheaded or stabbed every year in Islam ridden countries because their male relatives believe their actions have soiled the family name. They die, so family honour may survive. According to this tribal and religious practice, woman is a man's possession and a reflection of his honor. It is the man's honour that gets tarnished if a woman is 'loose'. The murderers and their defenders refer to verses of the Koran that allows husbands to beat their wives."
and
"Fundamentalists demand that women be veiled and segregated at every level of society, starting at puberty. Public displays of affection between husbands and wives is forbidden. Wife-beating is so prevalent, many see it as a normal part of marriage. In bed any sexual position where the woman is on top is haraam or sinful. It's difficult to imagine how either gender can enjoy intimacy in such a climate.....
The nazi's just like modern Islamic and Christian fundamentalists, were also obsessed with virgins and women as submissive housewives and perfect mothers."
These are just a few of the scathing attacks many in the West label against Islam and the Shari'ah. Whilst there are some sincere misconceptions in the West with regards Islam and women at the same time the hatred against Islam is a consistent feature in Western newspapers and magazines.
This misconception however is not just restricted to the West, across the Muslim world there are many misconceptions with regards Islamic male-female relations and the Shari'ah rules with regards to women. Ideas such as women being completely cut off from any societal role, the women's voice being considered awrah, forced marriages, female genital mutilation, honour killings, thousands of women in the subcontinent hospitalized each year from nitric acid thrown onto their faces for refusing a marriage suitor or over dowry or marital disputes. Many view the Shari'ah has subjugated women to their husband and father without any rights - these are just some of the cultural practices that have come to be seen as Islamic.
As a reaction to this some women have turned to the West and have taken on the decades long struggle of becoming mans equal. Many women who are Islamic have looked towards the West for their salvation and continue to call for the separation and removal of what remains of Islam.
The aim of this booklet is to as assess the struggle Western women undertook to achieve their rights as this continues to be held as the benchmark for women and societies across the world. The Islamic social system will then be looked at to asses what Islam actually says about women, how it regulates male-female relations and its suitability as a model for women and society.

The Quest for Economic Progress - An Islamic Blueprint for Pakistan

At this point in time when Capitalist economic solutions have a virtual monopoly in the discussion of economics for both Muslims and kuffar, it is critical that a working alternative model is presented to the world. As the recent Credit Crunch has shaken the global Capitalist structure to its very foundations, people world-wide are questioning its practical stability and intellectual validity. As the bankruptcy of Capitalist thought is revealed, there is an urgent need to replace it with a practical alternative model that is based upon sound ideas and has a pedigree of success.
This book is a presentation of a practical alternative Islamic economic model, with Pakistan as a case study, on which to build a dynamic and innovative economy fit for the 21st Century. Addressing areas as diverse as agriculture to energy, this book is a blueprint for turning a resource rich yet poorly managed country like Pakistan from an economic dependent to a global power. This model draws upon the juristic works of Islamic scholars and applies their research in an unprecedented fashion, bringing together years of Islamic scholastic tradition with the needs of the modern world.
This book also highlights the political implication of basing an economy upon an Islamic model. It serves to highlight how political unification with the rest of the Islamic world can act as a catalyst for economic development and the establishment of a modern Islamic State with unparalleled power and influence.

The Centrality of the Khilafah in Islam

Introduction
The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: ‘Verily, the knots of Islam will be undone one by one. Whenever one knot is lost then the people grabbed onto the one which came after it. The first of these knots will be the Ruling and the last will be the Salah.' [Reported by At-Tabaraani]
Mustafa Kamal, forced the National Assembly to separate the Sultanate from Caliphate (Khilafah), attempting to create a constitutional Khaleefah, according to the republican system, where he is just the symbolic figurehead and has no political power. Following this, in 1922, ‘The Caliphate and National Sovereignty' (Hilfet ve Hakimiyet - milliye) was published by the Turkish Grand National Assembly, justifying the dispossession of the Khilafah of all political powers, leaving him only ‘spiritual powers'. It started the early shoots of secular liberal thinking about this matter saying:
‘The Prophet's neglect of discussion of his political succession shows its secondary importance. The Caliphate is therefore a matter for the Muslims to organize themselves. Only clear texts of Quran and hadith are, properly speaking, of religious law; all else is only the ‘law of Ijtihad' on which there is little consensus. In these the government is free to choose what is temporally most expeditious. The caliph's authority resembles that of a president of a republic, resting on a general delegation of authority.' (p.5)
Ali Abdul Raziq (1888-1966) was an Azhari cleric, influenced by the orientalists D.S. Margoliouth and T.W. Arnold during World War One. He unleashed a propaganda campaign to discredit the Ottoman Caliphs saying: ‘The Prophet never tried to establish a government or a state; he was a messenger sent by Allah, and he was not a political leader.' ‘There is no basis for the Khilafah in the Qur'an and Hadith'.....‘Allah does not impose upon the Muslims a specific type or form of government, but they are free to choose what is better for the welfare of their society at any time.' Abdul Raziq was roundly denounced by Al-Azhar University and his arguments comprehensively refuted.
Despite the efforts of a brutal despot like Mustafa Kemal, who effectively seized power by force, or Abdul Raziq who failed to convince his contemporaries of his corrupt arguments, and a legion of colonialists and their efforts, the understanding of the Khilafah as an Islamic obligation has remained undiminished, even though it also remains, as yet, unfulfilled.
Now, as the demand for Khilafah rises across the Islamic world, we see the British government proposing a policy that argues that belief in Khilafah is "extremist". Suddenly, a plethora of "nobodies" have started writing that there is no such thing as a Khilafah system, that it is a historical relic of the past or have asked the extraordinary question ‘Who needs an Islamic State?'.
The truth of the matter is that the Khilafah is a unique system, different from any other in terms of its political philosophy, form of government and its stated aims for the simple reason that its source is divine and not manmade, whether by Western liberal thinkers of the Enlightenment or their intellectual subservients from the so-called Muslim liberal thinkers.

Islam in the 21st Century

Introduction
Since the events of 9/11 and 7/7, Islam and Muslims have increasingly been on the receiving end of a barrage of criticism. Many of the Islamic thoughts and practices have come under unprecedented attack under the banner of Freedom. The caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) and the banning of the Hijab in France are just two examples of the attempts of western secular countries to actively malign Islam. This attack on Islam and Muslims is however not restricted to certain Islamic thoughts and practices. Rather the whole concept of Shari'ah, the Islamic legal System, is ferociously attacked. The media portrayal of life under Shari'ah where beating of women, beheadings and lashings are everyday occurrences, are now all too familiar images.
Since the demise of Islam at a state level, the Shari'ah has ceased to be the basis of legislation in the Muslim world. What remains of the Shari'ah in the Muslim world is only a few scattered laws that are applied haphazardly. This has erroneously given the impression of the unsuitability of Shar'iah in the 21st century to deal with new issues and to solve modern, day-to-day problems.
This booklet will explore and contrast some of the problems of the 21st century and compare the manner in which secularism and Islam attempt to solve them. This booklet will look at how the Shari'ah texts are capable of dealing with any issue, be they social, economic or international. The book will scrutinise the applicability of the shari'ah in the 21st century through looking at a variety of 21st century issues. A comparison will be made between the Shari'ah approach to tackling issues and the secular methodology and its effects.

Geopolitical Myths


Download the book here.
Geopolitics has traditionally been the study of the relationship and links between political power and geographic space. The doctrine of Geopolitics gained attention largely through the work of Sir Halford Mackinder in England and his formulation of the Heartland Theory in 1904, which in reference to the British Empire at the time explored the significance of sea power in world conflict.
Whilst politics looks at the application of power, geopolitics looks at power in relation to geography and resources. The Western world has dominated the geopolitical scene for the past three centuries and has fought many wars over resources with each other. It was the British Empire's supremacy at sea that gave it superpower status. Its control of the seas through concentrating on navel development allowed it to conquer key sea trade routes and project its power across the oceans. It was its navel power that allowed it to conquer large parts of the world. Napoleon attempted to challenge British supremacy and was eventually defeated at the battle of waterloo in 1815.
Germany revolutionised the global geopolitical scene in the late 19th century by developing submarines and railways, allowing her to challenge the British Empire in the form of World War 1. Allied victory saw Britain and France distribute the spoils amongst themselves including the emergence of the key to global geopolitical supremacy - oil. Within 25 years Germany resurfaced bigger, bolder and bloodier with state of the art rockets that would propel missiles and lead to the development of airplanes and fighter jets and another attempt to shift the global balance of power - World War 2. However, it was the US that emerged as the world's superpower after World War 2 and this ushered in the era of economic competition and nuclear and energy development. The ability to harness resources through the development of technology has led the US to achieve full spectrum dominance, where an aura of invincibility surrounds her.
The dominance of the Capitalist West has been aided through the use of propaganda in order to create an image of supremacy; at the same time a number of myths alongside a number of narratives were fashioned in order to hide internal problems and weaknesses. An unfortunate result of this has also been the fact that many people across the world were duped by the supposed superiority of the West and Capitalism. This has made it difficult for many to see through the artificial bubble the West has created which allowed it to stand tall, needing only a strong wind for it to collapse.
It is for this very reason this book has been written. As Muslims we should be acquainted with the global situation for not only is this necessary for the defence of the Ummah and Islam, it also exposes the weakness of the Capitalist West. It should also be borne in mind that Geopolitics is important because most wars are fought over resources as President Woodrow Wilson said in 1919: ‘Is there any man, is there any woman, let me say any child here that does not know that the seed of war in the modern world is industrial and commercial rivalry?'

Manifesto of Hizb ut-Tahrir for Pakistan

Hizb ut-Tahrir wilayah Pakistan held a book launching ceremony of its manifesto in Lahore. The title of the booklet is 'Pakistan, Khilafah and the unification of the Muslim world'. Speaking at the occasion the spokesman of Hizb ut-Tahrir Pakistan, Mr. Naveed Butt said that for the past fifty years Hizb ut-Tahrir is working for the reestablishment of the Khilafah and has emerged as the single largest Islamic political party of the world.
He said that the Hizb has published a huge number of books, booklets and leaflets in the past to eliminate the misconceptions and confusions in the Ummah related to the systems implemented in the Khilafah State, and today's launch of the manifesto-booklet is also a step in this direction. A chapter each is dedicated for ruling system, economic system, judicial system, social system, foreign policy, internal policy, education policy and media.
Moreover a brief chapter is also added at the end which introduces the Hizb and its work. The book calls the Ummah towards the Shar'i obligation of establishing the Khilafah in Pakistan as well as spreading it throughout the world. The manifesto is issued both in Urdu and English languages.
In reply to a question, Naveed Butt told the audience that according to Islam there can only be a single Islamic state i.e. the Khilafah for all the Muslims and there is no room for 57 states of the Muslims based on the kufr concept of nationalism. He invited the Muslims of Pakistan to further increase their contact and discussions with Hizb ut-Tahrir in order to understand the system of Islam and how to implement it. Stalls related to ruling system, economic system, social system, judicial system, foreign policy and education policy were also on display that carried books, booklets and leaflets for the relevant system. Furthermore, there were stalls presenting the methodology as well as global activities of Hizb ut-Tahrir.

Hizb ut-Tahrir, convened two press conferences in Beirut and London on Friday 3rd April 2009, a day after the London G20 summit, where it launched its new book "Towards a Tranquil Safe World under the Shade of the Economic System of Islam."
The book examines the global economic crisis, explains its reality, critically examines its symptoms and exposes the flaws in the solutions proposed by the flagbearers of Capitalism. The book concludes by illustrating the correct solutions to the economic crisis from Islam - solutions that are from the Creator of the universe and the Creator of mankind, who knows what is best for His creation.
On the panel in London were Dr Imran Waheed, Hasan al-Hasan, and Taji Mustafa. The event was chaired by Sajjad Khan.
After speeches in english and arabic, a lively question and answer session followed with questions from the audience and others around the world who were watching the live webcast.

The Inevitability of the Clash of Civilisations

 Excerpt: The clash of civilisations is an inevitable matter. It existed in the past, exists now and will remain until the clash ends shortly before the Hour, since it does not come except upon the worst of creation. Do not be deceived, O Muslims, by the callers to the dialogue who place their heads in the sand and condone humiliation and defeat. Make the preparations required for the conflict, since the Capitalist Western civilisation has knocked you down militarily, politically and economically; however they will never defeat you intellectually. Your aqeedah is hard to defeat; and it remains alive in the souls, except that some concepts of your civilisation coming out from your aqeedah have been afflicted with some contamination and some dust has struck them. So work to purify them and shake the dust away from it by returning to the Book and Sunnah.

Communique from Hizb ut-Tahrir to Colonel Gaddafi (1978)

On the 40th Anniversary of Colonel Gaddafi's tyrannical rule in Libya we re-publish this famous communiqué accounting Gadaffi for his rejection of the Sunnah. This action of Hizb ut-Tahrir was based on the hadith of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم :
أَفْضَلُ الْجِهَادِ كَلِمَةُ عَدْلٍ عِنْدَ سُلْطَانٍ جَائِرٍ
"The best Jihad is the word of Justice in front of the oppressive Sultan." [Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, ibn Maja]

The following is an extracted translation of the meaning of a Communiqué from Hizb ut-Tahrir presented to Colonel Gaddafi in 1978 after a meeting that took place between him and a delegation from Hizb ut-Tahrir lasting 4 hours. The meeting and communiqué decisively address the falsehood of Gadaffi’s rejection of the Sunnah. It is important to note, after the distribution of the communiqué, Gadaffi ordered his henchmen to publicly hang the members and shabab of Hizb ut-Tahrir in their university campuses. This day is recognised as a dark day by all Muslims who witnessed and heard of the brutality of the tyrant Gadaffi. 
Furthermore it is important to stress, the public execution of these brave brothers was for the defense of the sunnah as a divine source of shari’ah. Today the tyrant rulers try to reduce sunnah to a few acts of morality by spreading books and publications that eliminate the power and strength of the prophetic sunnah. May Allah سبحانه وتعالى allow us to defend the sunnah and this deen with the same courage as these shuhadah.

Islamic Reformation: The Battle for Hearts & Minds

 The West started the battle to reform Islam and is pushing and forcing Muslims to change Islam. This is being achieved by blaming Islam for the existence of terrorism and by directly attacking some of the thoughts of Islam. The aim here is to push Muslims into twisting Islam under this pressure. Hence any defence of Islam needs to be undertaken with knowledge and without appeasement. This book, produced by Khilafah.com addresses the propaganda offensive of the West to change Islam and how Muslims should respond.

Accountability in the Khilafah

khilafahmap.jpgAccountability (muhasabah) is not the first word that springs to mind when discussing the Muslim world. Dictatorship, rigged elections, tyranny and torture pretty much sum up most Muslim countries today. The level of cruelty inflicted upon the people easily rivals if not surpasses some of the worst oppression in history. Unfortunately for those living there accountability and the rule of law seem a distant dream.

This book, written by Abdul Kareem Jamil, addresses the topic of accountability in the Khilafah State and how Islam establishes clear checks and balances to ensure the office of the Khalifah is not abused.

The Khilafah is not a Totalitarian State

 This map shows the Islamic Khilafah during the first century of its rule. Despite the number of countries under its domain with their existing languages, traditions, religions, customs, laws and cultures, Islam was successful in moulding these disparate people in to one unified society within a very short period of time.

Unlike the oppressive Byzantine Empire of the time, the Khilafah did not achieve this through tyranny and ruling with an iron fist. The peoples the Khilafah governed embraced Islam en masse and wholeheartedly supported and welcomed the rule of the Islamic State.

This book will refute in detail the claim made by Bush, Blair and others that the Khilafah ruling system is an oppressive, fascist, totalitarian state on par with Nazi Germany.

The Global Credit Crunch and the Crisis of Capitalism

thumb_credit-crunch1 The Global Credit Crunch and The Crisis of Capitalism

The world is once again in the midst of a global crisis which began with the financial crisis, that  engulfed the world. The ‘Credit crunch’ as it has come to be known brought panic and turmoil in the summer of 2007 to the world’s financial markets causing the US housing market bubble to burst. The crisis threatens a worldwide economic recession, potentially bringing to a halt more than a decade of increasing prosperity and employment for Western economies and potentially wiping a staggering $1 trillion off of the value of the world economy.

The Global credit crunch, food crisis and oil crisis has once again highlighted the fragility of Capitalism, as the fallout from the credit crunch and the wider economic crisis continues, demands for alternatives are certain to grow.  The aim of this book, written by our expert Adnan Khan, is to scrutanise the causes of the current crisis and evaluate some concepts which go to the heart of Capitalism which will always cause such crisis. It will asses the various factors that have all contributed to the crisis and scrutanise why Capitalism regularly has economic crisis. The Islamic view on such factors will be presented in the form of an Islamic economy under the Khilafah in order to show how Islam will bring the much needed stability the world needs.

Economic Crises - Their reality and solutions from the viewpoint of Islam


Download the book from here.
Sheikh Abu Yasin Ata ibn Khalil Abu Rashta is an Islamic jurist, ‘alim and writer and the Ameer of Hizb ut-Tahrir - the largest Islamic global political party under a single leadership.
He was born in 1943 in the small village of Ra'na in the Hebron area of the Palestinian territories. He observed first-hand the Israeli destruction of Ra'na in 1948 and thereafter moved with his family to a refugee camp near Hebron. He was educated in Hebron, Jerusalem and Cairo, and is a qualified civil engineer.
Sheikh Ata joined Hizb ut-Tahrir in the mid-1950s and subsequently carried out party activism throughout the Arab world. He worked closely with Sheikh Taqiuddin an-Nabhani (May Allah give him Rahma), the founder of Hizb ut-Tahrir and Sheikh Abdul Qadeem Zallum (May Allah give him Rahma) who became the leader of Hizb ut-Tahrir following Sheikh Nabhani's death in 1977.
In the 1980s he was a leading member of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Jordan and was appointed as Hizb ut-
Tahrir's official spokesperson. He became the global leader of Hizb ut-Tahrir on 13th April 2003 following the death of Sheikh Abdul Qadeem Zallum (May Allah give him Rahma).
Since assuming the leadership of Hizb ut-Tahrir, has addressed conferences across the world including Indonesia, Pakistan, Yemen and Sudan.
His other written works include Tayseer fi usool attafseer Surah al-Baqarah (2007), and Tayseer al
Wusool min al-Usool.

The Institutions of State in the Khilafah

The Institutions of State in the Khilafah (In Ruling and Administration)
This book is issued and adopted by Hizb ut-Tahrir. For authentic meanings please refer to Arabic text.
In this book we wish to present a clear understanding of the practical implementation of the ruling and administrative organisations of the Khilafah state. More importantly, through this clarity we hope to uplift the hearts of the Muslims, so that they can visualise what the Khilafah state will be and strive towards it.
Our motivation in writing this book is the fact that the present ruling systems in the world are not consistent with the ruling system of Islam in terms of their structures and their bases. It is clear to all Muslims that these ruling systems are not derived from the book of Allah, the Sunnah of His Messenger and the other sources of Islamic law that are referred to by them. There is no disagreement amongst Muslims that these systems contradict the system of Islam.
What causes confusion is whether the shape of the ruling system in Islam, in terms of its institutions, is similar to the ruling systems currently being implemented. Therefore they accept the existence of ministers and ministerial institutions that operate in a similar manner to those existent in foreign manmade ruling systems. This book concentrates on the structure and institutions of the Khilafah state, so as to make the shape of the ruling system clear in the minds of Muslims before its return, Insha'Allah.
