Far and wide, the country is witnessing a severe crisis in bread and fuel, including gas, petrol and gasoline these days. Queues have stretched out in front of bakeries, and cars in front of gas stations, amidst grumbling from the citizens. These crises remain periodically recurrent from one time to the next.
These recurrent crises in petroleum derivatives and wheat are primarily caused by two reasons:
One of them: The government’s failure in maintaining the unity of the country, by seceding the South, thereby causing the country the loss of Southern oil and its revenues, resulting in a deficit in the state budget. Hence elevated prices have crumbled the people.
Second: The government’s inability to exploit the country’s resources and wealth to take care of the affairs of the people. This is because the ruling system implemented on the people in its essence is not based on the idea of the well-being for people’s affairs. Rather it is based on the collection of money even from the poor, and handing out the country’s competences and resources to foreign companies and massive capitalist institutions, under the banner of investment, privatization and other ideas stemming from the Kaffir Western civilization!!
How to make sense of the people of Sudan suffering from a shortage of wheat flour, while our country is full of tens of millions of fertile agricultural lands and tens of huge agricultural projects?! Among them is the “Al-Jazeera Project” (the largest irrigation project in the world) with an area of 2.4 million acres of fertile land located between the Blue and White Niles. This project alone is capable of sustaining the people of the country, and even of exporting the surplus of wheat. How is it possible that a scarcity of petroleum products occurs in a country whose production (before being ruptured) amounted to about 500 thousand barrels per day, were it not for the recklessness of politics and the corruption of politicians?!
Dear People in Sudan:
It is your obligation to account the government on the basis of Islam, and that you take up the work to create a system of Islam, implemented by the Khilafah State which is able - Bidhnillah - to restore the unity of the country, even to unify it with the rest of the Muslim countries. The Khilafah State is capable of unlocking the Ummah’s potential, exploiting its resources, and cutting off the rope of dependence that the enemy has stretched out to the Ummah’s nourishment. All of this by applying the following provisions:
Islam has obliged the state take care of the affairs of its parish, and to ensure the satisfaction of their basic needs of food and others. Islam has forbidden the state to trouble the people or to cheat them:
«... مَنْ وَلِيَ مِنْ أَمْرِ أُمَّتِي شَيْئًا فَشَقَّ عَلَيْهِمْ فَاشْقُقْ عَلَيْهِ...»
“...Who has been given care over the affairs of my Ummah and troubles them, shall be troubled…” (Sahih Musim).
Regarding the South as Islamic land that has to be restored immediately to the authority of the State, while not acknowledging the betrayal of the rulers.
Considering oil and its derivatives as public property, and applying the provisions of public property by distributing them in kind or their benefits to the citizens of the State.
Reconsidering the relations of production in the various agricultural projects, and giving ownership over the land to the one who farms it, as well as providing water to the farmers and funding them from the Muslim’s Bayt al-Mal (State Treasury).
Abolishing the monopoly of the state and its institutions over production income, and the abolition of all restrictions in form of taxes, customs, and others.
Stopping and rejecting the programs imposed by the institutions of the Kaffir West, such as privatization programs, and entitling the ownership over agricultural land to massive capitalist companies and some countries of Kufr, because thereby the production of this land is not reflected in the lives of ordinary people.
This is only the tip of the iceberg from the provisions of Islam, which are capable - Bidhnillah - when applied under the Khilafah State, to take the best care of the people’s affairs. Let the Islamic Ummah look forward to a life under the systems and rulings of Islam, as an actualization of the glad tidings of the Messenger of Allah (saw) who promised the return of the second rightly guided Khilafah on the method of Prophethood.
((إِنَّ هَذَا لَهُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ * لِمِثْلِ هَذَا فَلْيَعْمَلِ الْعَامِلُونَ))
“Indeed, this is the great attainment. * For the like of this let the workers [on earth] work.” [As-Saffat: 60-61]
