May Allah’s (swt) peace and prayers fall on the Master of the Messengers, the leader to the pious people, his family, and his companions and upon everyone who makes da’wa with his message, and who confines himself to his method, and follows his steps and takes the Islamic creed as the basis for his thoughts, and the divine rules as the standard for his actions and as a reference for his opinions and rules.
Dear brothers and sisters we greet you with the greeting of Islam:
As-Salamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu.
We ask Allah (swt) to ensure that our gathering is completely for His sake and to give us the good for Islam and Muslims. We ask Allah (swt) to reveal to our sight the truth as truth, and give us the strength to follow it, and show us falsehood as falsehood, and give us the strength to avoid it.
Dear brothers and sisters, the vital issue for Muslims in the whole world is the re-establishment of the rule of Allah through establishing the Khilafah, and appointing a Khalifah for the Muslims, who is given the pledge (Bai’a) on the Book of Allah and the traditions (Sunnah) of His Prophet (saw), in order to demolish the rules of Kufr and to replace them with the laws of Islam both in implementation and application, to transfer the Muslim lands to Dar ul-Islam (Land of Islam), to make the society in Muslim lands an Islamic society, and to carry the message of Islam to the world by invitation and Jihad.
By defining what is the vital issue for Muslims, the objective will also be defined, for the achievement of which those who carry the Islamic call have to strive, as groups, parties and structures. Consequently the method which they have to follow to achieve their aim will also be defined. In order to understand all this we have to be aware of the present situation of Muslims and the reality of Muslim lands; and the situation of these lands, the reality of the society in which Muslims live nowadays, and thereality of the divine rules which are connected to all of these things.
The Reality Of Muslims
Although there are Muslims, their lives are characterised anddominated by a mixture of Islamic, western, socialist, nationalist, partisan, regional and sectarian thoughts and emotions.
The Reality Of Muslim Lands
When we look at the Muslim lands, which are primarily the Arab areas, they are unfortunately all governed by the laws and systems of Kufr except for some Islamic laws, such as the laws of marriage,divorce, wife’s financial support, inheritance, guardianship etc. All of these are implemented by specially appointed courts called divine courts (Mahkamah Shari’ah). There are also some other divine rules that are applied in the courts of some Muslim countries such as in Saudi Arabia and Iran.
