On Saturday, 4th January 2015 CE, the parliament approved amendments in the Interim Constitution of 2005, most notably with regards to the powers of the President of the Republic in appointing the governors of States and their exemption, and the powers of the Security and Intelligence Service; which has evolved into a government force, rather than the previous powers confined to information gathering and analysis, and delivering them to the specialized authorities. The amendments included the Doha Agreement on Darfur in the Constitution, as well as to give the provinces and local authorities the right to issue laws in the provinces and local authorities to impose taxes and fees.
The parliament did not face any difficulty in making these amendments, and contented themselves with Takbeers and Tahleel hence it passed by the overwhelming majority, especially the ruling party that controls 90% of the parliamentary seats which are 450 seats.
Chairman of the National Congress parliamentary group Mahdi Ibrahim, in a statement quoted by Ashrooq Channel said, that the aim of the proposed amendments “is to address the crises of tribalism, nationalism, and regional prejudices as ills that must be met with swift treatment.”
O Noble Muslim Ummah:
These constitutional amendments, as is the Constitution, are not derived from the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (saw), i.e. the Shariah law was not the basis for them, Allah (swt) says:
((وَأَنِ احْكُمْ بَيْنَهُمْ بِمَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ وَلا تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ وَاحْذَرْهُمْ أَنْ يَفْتِنُوكَ عَنْ بَعْضِ مَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ إِلَيْكَ))
“And judge, [O Muhammad], between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations and beware of them, lest they tempt you away from some of what Allah has revealed to you…” [Al-Ma’ida: 49]
Therefore, they are man-made laws that do not reflect the aspirations of our great Ummah, in that it wants to be ruled by Islam as a Muslim Ummah.
The inclusion of the Doha Agreement in the Constitution; it is the agreement signed between the government and some Darfur movements, which gave Darfur a wider regional autonomy, in preparation for its separation, and now the idea of self-autonomy is to become a constitutional right, and this explicitly threatens the unity of the country, and the separation of the south through the same man-made constitution is not far-off.
The weakening of the army through the Nevasha Agreement; that this man-made law constitution was based on, and then replacing the main armed force with other forces, such as the police and security apparatus. It is a great crime against the country and the people, because the functions of the police and security apparatus are different from the military tasks; the armed forces is the striking and fighting force, the entire Ummah stands behind it, and our Ummah is stronger and dignified by its strength.
Giving local authorities and provinces the right to issue local laws and commands, such as imposing taxes and fees, is rationing for more means and methods of consuming people’s wealth unlawfully, which is forbidden in Islam, the Prophet (saw) said: «لاَ يَحِلُّ مَالُ امْرِئٍ مُسْلِمٍ، إِلاَّ بِطِيبِ نَفْسٍ مِنْهُ» “The money of the Muslim is not lawful, but when he gives it willingly.”
It furthers the suffering of the lives of the ordinary people; those who are supposed to be represented in the parliament chamber by those cheering on (for these laws)!
O our people in Sudan:
Tribalism, nationalism, and regional prejudices are the discharge of this falsehood system; which ruled the country a quarter of a century without the Shariah of Islam. This government has provoked these ignorant prejudices, its relationships are on this basis; when it befriends or take an enemy, when it provides or deprives and when it makes peace or fights on this basis. Such patches on the man-made constitution would not address the problem of tribalism or others, but it deepens the crisis of the country. Solving the problem of tribalism and nationalism is only in the implementation of Islam and its system, which smelt the society in the crucible of Islam, eliminating these stinking prejudices, and Allah will unite our hearts, Allah Azza Wa Jal says:
((لَوْ أَنْفَقْتَ مَا فِي الأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا مَا أَلَّفْتَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِهِمْ وَلَكِنَّ اللَّهَ أَلَّفَ بَيْنَهُمْ إِنَّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ))
“And brought together their hearts. If you had spent all that is in the earth, you could not have brought their hearts together; but Allah brought them together. Indeed, He is Exalted in Might and Wise.” [Al-Anfal: 63]
O great Ummah of Islam; O people of Sudan:
The time has come to remove the systems of the Kaffir West; democracy that make legislation for humans by the opinion of the majority, making this is the source of this man-made Constitution; the Constitution of 2005, which bequeathed us with humiliation and poverty, serving as a Trojan horse to tear the country apart, by the separation of South Sudan, and the preparing the rest of the regions to secede. Such man-made constitutions are a tool to consolidate the power of rulers, and subjugation of the Ummah and its impoverishment. This reality will not change, except by the Islamic Constitution taken from the Qur’an and Sunnah by the strength of the evidence. It is a Constitution that guarantees the unity of the Ummah and its living by Islam, a life in obedience to Allah (swt), and seeking His (swt) pleasure, so that He (swt) may lift off us the high prices and sufferings, and we return as the best nation brought t mankind.
And now the time has come for our heroes in positions of decision making from the people of power and protection in the great armed forces to conquer the tyranny and to bring the victory for Islam and Muslims.
So rise in obedience to Allah, and side with your great Ummah, by restoring the ruling system of Islam; the Khilafah, by pledging allegiance to the Khaleefah to listen and obey, and to implement Islam and its systems.
((وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ * بِنَصْرِ اللَّهِ يَنْصُرُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ))
“...And that day the believers will rejoice * In the victory of Allah. He gives victory to whom He wills, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.” [Ar-Rum: 4-5]
