Khilafah and Turkey’s Growing Influence in the Muslim World

Ahmet Selahettin

Muharram 13, 14422020-09-01

In recent weeks, the idea of the cherished goal of reviving the Khilafah has been discussed in a Turkish publication. Are Turkey’s current rulers truly committed to such revival or was this merely an attempt to garner support in the Muslim world?

Jumada' al-Ula' 21, 14372016-03-01

The noble concept of the Khilafah (the Islamic State) has been besmirched at the hands of terrorists and head choppers. This is part of a plan to undermine the aspirations of Muslims for legitimacy, justice and peace.

Battle of the [self-proclaimed] caliphs!

Crescent International

Sha'ban 18, 14362015-06-05

Claiming to be the Khalifah (caliph) of Muslims is not a trifle matter; it carries grave responsibilities in Islam. Unfortunately, even a venerable institution like the Khilafah has been turned into a plaything by mass murderers at the behest of their Wahhabi-Najdi masters as well as imperialists and Zionists. We examine the case of two self-proclaimed caliphs: Mullah Omar and Abu Bakr al Baghdadi.

Imam Khomeini, who left this earthly abode and joined heavenly company on June 3, 1989, has had a profound impact on global politics. The Islamic Republic’s success in withstanding the global conspiracy of kufr and nifaq for more than 36 years is testimony to its strong Islamic roots.

An important institution like the Khilafah is being mocked by the takfiris, says letter writer Masood Alam Ansari

With the bursting of the takfiri group, the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) on the scene and their declaration of the Khilafah, it is important to understand this phenomenon through the Seerah of the noble Messenger (saws).


Imam Khomeini’s inspiring leadership

Given the paucity of good leaders in the Muslim world, Imam Khomeini, who joined heavenly company in June 1989, offers an example of great leadership.


The ignorant man is dead even if he is breathing

Abu Dharr

Dhu al-Qa'dah 25, 14342013-10-01

The Khilafah was not abolished in 1924. When Muawiya declared himself king in early Islamic history, he abolished the Khilafah at that time. Muslims must get a better understanding of their history before they can take the steps to rectify the damage.

Competing visions of memory in the Ummah

Zafar Bangash

Dhu al-Qa'dah 25, 14342013-10-01

The subversion of Khilafah by the Ummayyad dynasty has led to two divergent memories in the Ummah. The Muslim masses yearn for memory based on Prophetic and Khilafah history while the ruling elites continue to push the memory of mulukiyya.


Post-khilafah ruling class: much ado about no substance

Abu Dharr

Dhu al-Hijjah 16, 14332012-11-01

Once King Muawiyah had usurped the Khilafah, the issue of power and authority was gradually removed from Muslim consciousness and Islam reduced to mere rituals. The sorry state of Muslim rulers today is the direct result.

Indonesian Muslims turn out for Hizb ut-Tahrir’s international conference on the khilafah

Jakarta Correspodent

Sha'ban 19, 14282007-09-01

How to get 80,000 Muslims to fill up a soccer stadium? Unless there is a soccer match, a soccer stadium is hardly ever filled up. At the Gelora Bung Karno stadium, the largest stadium in Jakarta, on August 12, however, nobody was playing football when people filled up all the seats. Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT), no stranger to crowd-mobilisation, managed to gather a huge crowd: some cynics say that getting 80,000 people together in a country like Indonesia is no big deal; the realities of the land in which an event is held are more important aspects to be analysed by observers of Indonesian politics, particularly those in the Islamic movement.


Envisaging the Islamic movement without reference to the West

In May, Lebanon marked the anniversary of the Hizbullah’s successful expulsion of Israeli forces from southern Lebanon in 2000. For Muslims around the world, the Hizbullah success was a triumph for the courage and steadfastness of its members in the field of battle and in the far more complicated arena of Lebanese politics.

Midterm review and Imam Muhammad Baqir (a) [Lecture 9]

Hamid Algar

Rajab 17, 14222001-10-04

The period in question is the period three caliphs and his abstention from public or political involvement, and his tenure as the fourth of the rightly guided caliphs (from the Sunni point of view). The obstacles that confronted him - you could talk about the existence of a rival centre of power in Damascus under the auspice of Mu’awiyah, who using the assassination of Uthman the third caliph as a pretext now wished to deny legitimacy to Imam Ali [AS] and refused him his loyalty and his obedience.
