ISLAMIC UNITY & GOVERNANCE BASED UPON THE QURA'N, THE EXAMPLE & COMMANDS OF THE PROPHET (SAW) AND THE METHOD OF THE SALAF

 

 


The Finality of Messengership & Prophethood
One of the fundamentals of the Islamic belief apart from the belief in Tawheed [monotheism] and al ghayb [the unseen] and Ma'aad/aakhirah [the hereafter] is prophethood [naboowah] and messengership [risaalah]. A necessary branch of this belief is that Muhammad is the final prophet [nabi] and messenger [rasool]. This belief is established by well known and clear evidence along with it being unanimously transmitted from the earliest Muslims. When this belief is understood and acted upon it preserves the source of guidance and facilitates the Islamic method and structure and when this belief is corrupted and neglected it facilitates the way for deviation [dalaalah], innovation [bida'h] and even disbelief [ kufr]. It destroys the basis of Islamic unity [wahdah] and ruins the structure of Islamic revival [ihyaa'] and the method of change [minhaaj at taghyeer] for society.

The month of Ramadaan starts with the direct sighting of the moon after maghrib by a known Muslim, through the witness of a known Muslim, through the completion of thirty days of Sha'baan or through the command of the Khaleefah (and his umaraa) who has been conveyed the news through one of these shari'ah methods established by text.

From the estrangement of Islam in our time and the abandonment of the Quran and Sunnah is that people innovated (made bid'a) the commencing of the Holy month of Ramadaan by baseless methods such as:-

i) Referring to a mosque (and likely that mosque being a centre of kufr)

ii) Referring to a self appointed panel of 'scholars', and likely - false scholars calling to kufr or making walaa' with those who do.


iii) Referring to a country (with those countries being taaghoot kufr systems)


iv) Following the crowd blindly, not knowing their basis, evidence or witness -  neither caring about that.


v) Following unverfied stories e.g. 'Some people have...' 'So and so heard that so and so, said somewhere..' etc.


vi) Referring to the celebrity speakers (those with their own TV channels, DVD collections, fan clubs etc...they are known for talking much but never forbidding the kufr and they even call to kufr themselves, but have become famous due to the widespread kufr of the people elevating one of their own) with no sharia'h command telling us to refer to these people for commencement of Ramadaan nor anything else.


vii) Referring to one of the many innovated and baseless groups/parties who call to division and do not recognize the obligation for all affairs to be immediately unified under the shariah structure upon the Islamic belief.


These things are no surprise to a Muslim in this time, as the shariah system has been abandoned by the so called 'Muslim' masses while they turn to kufr concepts and systems such as Democracy (man-made law as opposed to the Laws of Allah & following the ignorant & misguided majority), Secularism, (separating religion from governance and life's affairs), Nationalism (pride in the kufr Nation States set up by the colonizing kaafir Nations abandoning Imaan and khilaafah as the pillars of unity), Kingship (Sovereignty for a taaghoot rather than Allah {swt}) and Military Dictatorship (accepting the taaghoot kufr army as brothers when Allah commanded us to make baraa from the taaghoot and its allies, armies and supporters).

UNITY is a Command of Allah (swt) with a Clear Method of Implementation


 

Many people in the muslim world call for unity but they adopt a method which is in contradiction to its own objectives. They call for unity but adopt a divisive methodology. Allah (swt) does not allow such contradictions in the deen, Allah (swt) says "....establish the deen and do not make divisions in it..." (ash Shoora 42:13) and Allah (swt) says "Do they not then consider the Quran? Had it been from other than Allah they would surely have found therein many contradictions." (an Nisaa' 4:82) So if we find clear contradiction between the method and the objective, then we know this method is not from Islam. We can tell the Muslims 'Let us unite as one, let us unite as one' and at the same time say 'We will do this by being many groups, so come and join my group'. This a contradiction. Islam accepts differences when the Divine Texts allow for differing interpretation but to divide into hundreds or thousands of separate entities, each an authority unto themselves.......then this is far fom the Islamic system of unity and it has no basis in the Quran, the Sunnah and it contradicts the intellect. In fact Allah (swt) associated division with the stupidity of the unbelievers so we should not imitate them in that, Allah (swt) says "....Their enmity among themselves is very severe. You would think they are united but their hearts are divided that is because they are a people who do not use their intellects." (al Hashr 59:14)

Allah (swt) in the Quran and the messenger in the Sunnah commanded us to unity and prohibited us from disunity and no-one can deny that this command stands for all times. If Allah gives us a command then He (swt) also commands us with the method of how to implement that command just as the ayah says "....for each of you we gave a shari'ah [law] and a minhaaj [clear method]..." (al Maaidah 5:48) Therefore every Muslim must seek to understand how we will unite upon the Quran and Sunnah according to the method of Nabi (saw) and the indications of the evidence of Ayaat and Ahadeeth.

When we survey the texts of Quran and Hadeeth we see very clearly that Islam gave us two pillars of unity. Those pillars of unity are :-

1) Unifying upon the correct beliefs (imaan) this is clear from the ayah "Verily only the believers are a brotherhood" (al Hujuraat 49:10) and the ayah "And be not like those who divided and differed among themselves after the clear proofs had come to them. It is they for whom there is an awful torment." (aali I'mraan 3:105) and "Verily, this ummah of yours is one ummah and I am your Lord so worship me" (al Anbiyaa' 21:92) There are many other clear evidences to prove this point.

2) The unification under one Imaam. This is proven by many evidences e.g. Allah (swt) says "And hold fast to the rope of Allah all of you together and be not divided..." (aali I'mraan 3:103) The 'rope of Allah' was described by Ibn Masoo'd to be the 'Jama'ah' [Tafseer of TABARI] and the jama'ah are those who are gathered under the Imaam and upon the correct beliefs as collectively transmitted by the ijmaa' of the sahaabah. Even if other interpretations for the phrase 'rope of Allah' are adopted, such as that which some of the salaf transmitted, that it refers to 'the Qura'n' then again there is no contradiction and the obligation to be unified upon the beliefs of Islam and under a singular shara'ee authority still are emphasized. This is because the ayah commands making i'tisaam [holding fast] to the Quran includes the whole of the Quran and that includes its beliefs and laws. The beliefs and laws of the Qura'n can not be adhered to completely and comprehensively except in a collective manner as those beliefs require establishing certain relationships and severing certain relationships and the laws involve collective matters which can not be applied by individuals alone (such as matters of co-operation in birr and taqwa, fighting in the cause of Allah in rows as if one structure, judging in the disputes of people along with just witnessing, establishing the salah along with its subsidiary rules, the collection and distribution of the zakah etc.) Secondly, the ayaah gave the command of i'tisaam in the collective [plural] verbal structure 'watasimoo' which was an address to all the believers as an ummah and not just an individual from among them. Thirdly, the ayah commanded to make i'tisaam to the rope of Allah 'jamee'an' [altogether] meaning that the believers should hold fast to the beliefs and laws collectively and not just individually and it would be impossible to adhere to this collectively without submitting to a singular organizing authority. On this point Haafiz Ibn Katheer (d. h. SHAFI'I) mentioned that Imaam al Qurtubi (d h. MAALIKI) as well as other u'lemaa' said concerning the ayah "And when your Lord said to the angels ' I am going to place a khaleefah on the earth...'" (al Baqarah 2:30), "that this ayah proves the obligation of appointing a khaleefah to pass judgment on matters of dispute between people, to aid the oppressed against the oppressor, to implement the hudood and forbid the evil. There are many other tasks that can only be fulfilled by appointing the Imaam and what is necessary to achieve a duty is a duty itself..." (IBN KATHEER 'Tafseer al Qura'n al A'zeem [vol.1]) Fourthly, the ayah, along with these emphatic indications of a unified i'tisaam, also forbade 'tafarruq' (again, the collective nature of this prohibition was indicated by the plural verb construction  'laa tafarraqoo' [do not make division]). This meant that the Muslims should not divide in their beliefs, by their laws, systems nor by their method of i'tisaam. Fifthly, the asbaab an Nuzool [circumstances of revelation] of these ayaat clearly addressed the Muslims to re-establish their Islamic bonds of belief and structure after they had started to divide upon a non-Islamic basis. Also, the meaning of jama'ah [the unified group] and the meaning of tafarruq [prohibited division] is explained in the hadeeth of Ibn Abbaas who reported that Nabi (saw) said "Whoever of you sees in his ameer [leader] something which he dislikes should remain patient for whoever divides from the Jama'ah by a handspan then he dies, he dies the death of jaahileeyah." (BUKHAARI, MUSLIM) Therefore the 'Jamah is to be united under the obedience to one man, i.e. The Khaleefah, Imaam, Ameerul Mu'mineen and Tafarruq is to separate from this. This is also proven by the following hadeeths..... A'rfajah reported that the Prophet (saw) said "Whoever comes to you while your affair has been united under one man intending to dissolve your strength or or divide your jama'ah then kill him." (MUSLIM kitaabul Imaarah) and Abu Sa'eedul Khudri reported that the Prophet (saw) said "If the bayah [oath of obedience] has been taken for two khaleefahs then kill the latter of them."(MUSLIM kitaabul Imaarah)

The Salaf were also clear on the meaning of Jama'ah and Disunity. They knew from Quran and Sunnah and from their asscociation with the Prophet (saw) that unity did not consist of numbers but the gathering upon the truth of the Islamic beliefs and the obedience to the one leader, the Imaam. It is reported that U'mar ibn al Khattab said 'There is no Islam without Jama'ah and there is no Jama'ah without Imaarah [authority, leadership] and there is no Imaarah without Taa'ah [obedience]" (DAARIMI). The early Muslims were always united under the two pillars of IMAAN (Belief) and IMAAMAH (leadership). This was at all times including before they took power in Madeenah.

We should not talk about unity in an emotional way. Rather we should understand what Islamic unity is and we should then implement it. We should not call for something only to provide people with a false methodology. We must unite according to the clear command of Allah even if the majority of people reject this Islamic unity. This is because we only unite in order to obey Allah and save ourselves from Hellfire. This is proven by the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah who reported that the Prophet (saw) said "Whoever obeys me obeys Allah and whoever disobeys me disobeys Allah and whoever obeys the Imaam he obeys me and whoever disobeys the Imaam then he disobeys me" (IBN MAAJAH) and in the version of BUKHAARI and MUSLIM ".....whoever obeys the ameer he obeys me and whoever disobeys the ameer then he disobeys me." Therefore we do not unite under the Imaam for material benefit nor due to the result, but we do it because it is a Divine command and if we fail to unite behin the Imaam then we are sinful. We must have an Imaam just as the hadeeth says "Whoever dies without an Imaam then he dies the death of jaahileeyah" (AHMAD, AL HINDI) and Ibn U'mar reported that Nabi (saw) said "....whoever dies without a baya'ah upon his neck then he dies the death of jaahileeyah" (MUSLIM)

So let us not be emotional about unity but let us be obedient to Allah about unity. Let us understand it according to evidence and then we must submit to it. We must unite upon imaan and under one imaam and it does not matter if people mock that and abandon it. We must unify according to the truth even if there are only three of us just as the hadeeth of A'bdullah ibn A'mru ibn al A'ss makes clear, he reported that Nabi (saw) said "It is not halaal for any three of you to be in a deserted place without appointing one ameer" (AHMAD) So the ummah must always be united even if they were small. We should not seek to be in the majority but seek to be upon the truth. It is reported that A'bdullah ibn Masoo'd said "The Jama'ah is what accords with the truth even if you are one person" (AL LAALIKAA'EE, IBN A'SAAKEER) And let us remember that the true deen will return not as a well known majority but rather as strangers who follow the way of the Prophet (saw), it is reported that the Prophet (saw) said "Islam started as a stranger and will return as a stranger just as it was in the beginning so Tuba [Tree in paradise, blessings, reward] to the strangers" (MUSLIM, IBN MAAJAH and others)

What is Khilafah?

Khilaafah is the Islamic ruling system, also known as Imaamah. In the Arabic language 'khilaafah' means 'succession'. The sharia'h meaning of khilaafah is the succession of the Islamic leadership for the Muslim ummah, it refers to the system of government whereby one man is appointed to organize the affairs of the deen and the dunya.......READ THE REST
