Bismillahi Al-Rahman Al-Raheem

The Speech of the Ameer of Hizb ut Tahrir, Eminent Scholar, Ata Bin Khalil Abu Al-Rashtah to the Visitors of his Page on the Occasion of Blessed Eid ul-Fitr of 1445 AH corresponding to 2024 CE

Praise be to Allah, and may blessings and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and companions, and those who follow him.

To the Islamic Ummah, the best nation ever produced for humankind:

((كُنْتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللهِ))

“You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allāh” [Aal-i-Imran: 110].

To the pure and pious Dawah carriers, “And we do not praise anyone before Allah,” who say good words and do good deeds. Allah (swt) has praised those who have these qualities.

((وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ قَوْلًا مِمَّنْ دَعَا إِلَى اللهِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا وَقَالَ إِنَّنِي مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِين...))

“And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, “Indeed, I am of the Muslims.” [Fussilat: 33].

To the honourable visitors of the page who approach it truthfully and sincerely, and who seek the goodness it brings, may Allah reward them with the good.
I congratulate you all on the blessed Eid Al-Fitr… and may Allah (swt) accept your good deeds. Indeed, Allah (swt) takes care of the righteous.

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

This Eid comes and the monstrous Jewish state is committing atrocities against people, trees and stones in Gaza and all of Palestine, it is doing so with the support of America, which supplies it with bombs, missiles and aircrafts. Although it is not strange that the Jewish entity with the support from America carry out this, for they are the enemy of Islam and the Muslims, but what is strange is that none of the rulers in the Muslim countries take the initiative, especially those in the surroundings of Palestine, to mobilize their armies to support Gaza, its people, Al-Aqsa, and its environs, and uproot the Jewish entity from its roots, and then return all of Palestine to its people. Doesn’t the one who occupied the Muslim land and expelled its people from it deserve to be fought by the Muslim armies and expelled from it as they expelled its people?

((وَاقْتُلُوهُمْ حَيْثُ ثَقِفْتُمُوهُمْ وَأَخْرِجُوهُمْ مِنْ حَيْثُ أَخْرَجُوكُمْ))

“And kill them [in battle] wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you,” [Al-Baqara: 191]. How can the rulers not realize this?! Rather their misery overtook them, as their obedience is for the kaffir colonialists, especially America, they do not refuse any of its orders in order to preserve their crooked seats. ((قَاتَلَهُمُ اللهُ أَنَّى يُؤْفَكُون))“May Allāh destroy them; how are they deluded?” [Al-Munafiqun: 4]

Brothers and Sisters:

This war revealed two important matters:

The first
is the weakness and humiliation of the Jews, as Allah (swt) mentioned them in His Book:

((ضُرِبَتْ عَلَيْهِمُ الذِّلَّةُ أَيْنَ مَا ثُقِفُوا إِلَّا بِحَبْلٍ مِنَ اللهِ وَحَبْلٍ مِنَ النَّاسِ))

“They have been put under humiliation [by Allah] wherever they are overtaken, except for a rope [i.e., covenant] from Allah and a rope [i.e., treaty] from the people” [Aal-i-Imran:112]. They cut the rope of Allah after their prophets, and nothing remains for them except the rope of the people, America and its followers. People of this caliber are not people worthy of victory in fighting. More than six months have passed since their brutal aggression against the people of Gaza, without achieving their goals, even though they are fighting a group that is much smaller in numbers and equipment.

The second
is the betrayal of the rulers in the Muslim countries. They are watching what is happening. The best among them is the one who counts the number of the martyrs and the wounded. They did not mobilize the armies to support Gaza and its people, as if the matter does not concern them! Or they are neutral, or closer to the enemy

((صُمٌّ بُكْمٌ عُمْيٌ فَهُمْ لَا يَرْجِعُونَ))  “Deaf, dumb and blind - so they will not return [to the right path]” [Al-Baqara: 18].

These two matters should push the sincere and people of power in the Muslim armies to declare a general mobilization to fulfill Allah’s obligation to fight the Jews occupying Palestine.

((وَلَا تَهِنُوا فِي ابْتِغَاءِ الْقَوْمِ إِنْ تَكُونُوا تَأْلَمُونَ فَإِنَّهُمْ يَأْلَمُونَ كَمَا تَأْلَمُونَ وَتَرْجُونَ مِنَ اللهِ مَا لَا يَرْجُونَ))

“And do not weaken in pursuit of the enemy. If you should be suffering - so are they suffering as you are suffering, but you expect from Allah that which they expect not” [An-Nisa: 104]. Thus, you remove their entity, for they are more insignificant to Allah (swt) than to be victorious in a fight, and then Allah’s promise will be fulfilled.

((فَإِذَا جَاءَ وَعْدُ الْآخِرَةِ لِيَسُوءُوا وُجُوهَكُمْ وَلِيَدْخُلُوا الْمَسْجِدَ كَمَا دَخَلُوهُ أَوَّلَ مَرَّةٍ وَلِيُتَبِّرُوا مَا عَلَوْا تَتْبِيراً))

“Then when the final [i.e., second] promise came, [We sent your enemies] to sadden your faces and to enter the masjid [i.e., the temple in Jerusalem], as they entered it the first time, and to destroy what they had taken over with [total] destruction” [Al-Isra: 7].

So, rush to support your brothers and sisters in Gaza, and if the oppressive regimes in Muslim countries stand against you, then remove them by all means… and establish the rule of Allah in their place, the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood, in fulfillment of the glad-tidings of the Messenger of Allah (saw):

«ثُمَّ تَكُونُ مُلْكاً جَبْرِيَّةً فَتَكُونُ مَا شَاءَ اللهُ أَنْ تَكُونَ، ثُمَّ يَرْفَعُهَا إِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَرْفَعَهَا، ثُمَّ تَكُونُ خِلَافَةً عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ النُّبُوَّةِ، ثُمَّ سَكَتَ»

“Then there will be oppressive rule (ملكًا جبرية) for as long as Allah wills, then He will remove it when He wills, and then there will be Khilafah upon the method of the Prophethood.’ Then he (saw) was silent.” [Musnad of Imam Ahmad] Then the Khalifah (Caliph), his assistants, and the soldiers of Islam, from the highest rank to the lowest rank, would move from victory to victory, chanting “Allahu Akbar” and the Ummah chants “Allahu Akbar” with them, strong with the aid of their Lord and proud with their Deen, so no enemy would dare to establish an entity in the land of Islam.

((وَيَوْمَئِذٍ يَفْرَحُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ * بِنَصْرِ اللهِ يَنْصُرُ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الرَّحِيمُ))

“And that day the believers will rejoice * In the victory of Allāh. He gives victory to whom He wills, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful” [Ar-Rum: 4-5].

In conclusion, brothers and sisters, I congratulate you on Eid al-Fitr, asking Allah (swt) that we have performed the fasting and qiyam prayers of this noble month in a way that pleases Allah (swt) and His Messenger (saw) may. I also ask Him (swt) that this Eid be a beginning of goodness, blessing and glory for Islam and Muslims

((وَاللهُ غَالِبٌ عَلَى أَمْرِهِ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُون))

“And Allāh is predominant over His affair, but most of the people do not know.” [Yusuf: 21].

Wassalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh
