“All pious Muslims well-read in the Hadith firmly believe in the need to establish an Islamic State headed by a Muslim Caliph.” Sami Moubayed

“All pious Muslims well-read in the Hadith (the compiled sayings of the Prophet) firmly believe in the need to establish an Islamic State headed by a Muslim Caliph. This is mentioned twice in the Holy Quran and it’s central to the Islamic faith. No Muslim scholar would debate an Islamic state and the caliphate. Muslim Sunnis claim that the caliph should hail from Meccan notability. Shiite Muslims add that he must be from Ahl al-Bayt; a member of the prophet’s family.” (Sami Moubayed, Daily Telegraph, 23 Sep 2015)

Imam Nawawi’s explanation of the hadith on accounting the rulers

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: سَتَكُونُ أُمَرَاءُ فَتَعْرِفُونَ وَتُنْكِرُونَ فَمَنْ عَرَفَ بَرِئَ وَمَنْ أَنْكَرَ سَلِمَ وَلَكِنْ مَنْ رَضِيَ وَتَابَعَ ‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا أَفَلاَ نُقَاتِلُهُمْ قَالَ ‏ لاَ مَا صَلَّوْا ‏‏ “‘There will be ameers, you recognise (something of what they do) and you reject (some). Whosoever recognised, he would be absolved (of sin) and whosoever rejected, he would be safe. But whosoever accepted and followed (what they do, he would not be safe).’ They (the Sahabah) asked ‘Shouldn’t we fight them?’ He said; ‘No, as long as they pray.’” (Sahih Muslim 1854a)

How was the moon sighting of Eid ul-Fitr 1440/2019 verified?

BY MAZIN ABDUL-ADHIM Many people have asked me to provide more details behind why the leadership of Hizb ut Tahrir verified the moon sighting and declared that Eid will be today (Tuesday). I contacted the head of the media office and received a clarification. But before listing the specific eyewitness accounts, I would like to point out something very important first:

Does the Qur’an Prophesise the establishment and future destruction of Israel?

BY NABEEL ALKHALIDY. THIS HAS BEEN REPRODUCED FROM THE SIBAWAY INSTITUTE. This tafseer shows how the Qur’an prophesies the establishment of  the Zionist state of Israel and its future destruction at the hands of the believers. Israel will never be challenged or removed by the current regimes in the Muslim world who are its biggest protectors. Rather only with their removal and replacement with a Khilafah will the Muslims of Palestine finally find the justice they have been waiting decades for.
