Hizb ut Tahrir
Hizb ut Tahrir is a political party whose ideology is Islam, so politics is its work and Islamis its ideology. It works within the Ummah and together with her, so that she adopts Islam as her cause and is led to restore the Khilafah and the ruling by what Allah (swt) revealed. Hizb ut Tahrir is a political group and not a priestly one. Nor is it an academic, educationalor a charity group. The Islamic thought is the soul of its body, its core and the secret of its life.
The Reasons for the Establishment of Hizb ut Tahrir
Hizb ut Tahrir was established in response to the saying of Allah (swt), “Let there be among you a group that invites to the good, orders what is right and forbids what is evil, and they are those who are successful.” [TMQ 3:104] Its purpose was to revive the Islamic Ummah from the severe decline that it had reached,and to liberate it from the thoughts, systems and laws of Kufr, as well as the dominationand influence of the Kufr states. It also aims to restore the Islamic Khilafah State so that the ruling by what Allah (swt) revealed returns.
The Aim of Hizb ut Tahrir
Its aim is to resume the Islamic way of life and to convey the Islamic da’wah to the world.This objective means bringing the Muslims back to living an Islamic way of life in Dar al-Islam and in an Islamic society such that all of life’s affairs in society are administeredaccording to the Shari’ah rules, and the viewpoint in it is the halal and the haram under theshade of the Islamic State, which is the Khilafah State. That state is the one in whichMuslims appoint a Khaleefah and give him the bay’ah to listen and obey on condition thathe rules according to the Book of Allah (swt) and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saw) and on condition that he conveys Islam as a message to the world through da’wah and jihad. The Party, as well, aims at the correct revival of the Ummah through enlightened thought.It also strives to bring her back to her previous might and glory such that she wrests thereins of initiative away from other states and nations, and returns to her rightful place as thefirst state in the world, as she was in the past, when she governs the world according to thelaws of Islam. It also aims to bring back the Islamic guidance for mankind and to lead the Ummah into a struggle with Kufr, its systems and its thoughts so that Islam encapsulates the world.
