  • The Concept of Khilāfah and the Reality of Political Power - Sayyidī al-Ḥabīb `Umar



    There are two types of khilāfah. The first is the outward khilāfah which relates to political power, which is not noble and honourable in itself. Anyone may attain political power, whether they be pious or corrupt, whether they be a believer or a disbeliever, whether they be a Prophet or a wretched person.

    The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:

    However, the end is only for the people of taqwā.Allah has promised to those among you who believe and do good works that He will surely grant them inheritance of power (khilāfah) on the earth as He granted it to those before them; that He will make their religion firm, the religion which He has chosen for them; and He will replace their fear with security. They worship Me and do not associate partners with Me. 3 We are allowed to make the call to prayer, to pray, to openly teach these lessons which are broadcast to the East and the West. We do not deserve any of this. It is only through the blessings of Muhammad and his steadfastness. Makkah was only opened to him in the final years of his life, but he opened up the whole world ﷺ. We used to teach and study in a state of fear but Allah promises: He will replace their fear with security. 4 The years passed and the regime changed and now we find ourselves in a state of ease and safety.

    They offer you political power and status but we have found something pure and lofty so why do they want us to enter into something filthy? When Imam al-Ḥusayn, the son of Shaykh Abū Bakr bin Sālim was offered political power he said: This is the perspective of the pious people on political power.

    The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said:

    This is the way of Allah in the past and you will find no change in the way of Allah.- Muwasala

    :jkk: dont know whether i ll be alive to see the true khilafa or not.... :(
    ".......He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth. But the revelation that cometh to thee from Allah increaseth in most of them (kuffar) their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy.Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah doth extinguish it;but they (ever) strive to do mischief on earth. And Allah loveth not those who do mischief."(5:64)

          Not only a Sufi Shaykh, but a Mufti of the Shafi madhab, a Faqih with the meaning of the word, a Muhadith, thus a person who not only understands the outward meanings of the Shariah, Fiqh, Aqidah, Quran, Hadith, but also its inner meanings, thus having an indepth understanding of the Quran and Sunnah.

            This was a flaccid attempt to undermine the legitimacy of the Caliphate of the Islamic State. Carry on folks.....:dispirited:
