Foreword: Missing but Never Forgotten
Naveed Butt, honorable and respected son of this Ummah, outspoken caller to Islam and its Khilafah, was abducted by the thugs of General Kayani, the chief agent of America in Pakistan, on 11 May 2012. This crime of Kayani’s is an outcome of the American policy to suppress the rise of Islam and the return of its Khilafah. Naveed remains in the dungeons of the tyrant, his whereabouts unknown.
This book highlights the global campaign, throughout the Muslim World and beyond, mounted by Hizb ut Tahrir, under its Ameer, the eminent jurist, Sheikh Ata Bin Khalil Abu Al-Rashtah, to secure the release of Naveed Butt. It is a declaration that this Ummah does not regret the sacrifices of its sons, for Allah (swt) will never waste the sincere actions of His servants. It is a confirmation of the accord that this Ummah gives Islam and those who strive and sacrifice to secure its return as a way of life under the shade of the Khilafah. And it is a reminder to all those who are free to speak for Islam and strive for its Khilafah in this era of tyrants, that they must avail this privilege as much as they can, seeking the pleasure of Allah (swt) and His Victory. And inshaaAllah the day is not long before Muslims raise Naveed Butt on their shoulders, welcoming the return of the Khilafah.
يُرِيدُونَ أَنْ يُطْفِئُوا نُورَ اللَّهِ بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَيَأْبَى اللَّهُ إِلَّا أَنْ يُتِمَّ نُورَهُ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْكَافِرُونَ (32) هُوَ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ رَسُولَهُ بِالْهُدَى وَدِينِ الْحَقِّ لِيُظْهِرَهُ عَلَى الدِّينِ كُلِّهِ وَلَوْ كَرِهَ الْمُشْرِكُونَ
“They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it. It is He who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to manifest it over all religion, although they who associate others with Allah dislike it.” [9:32-33]
