Ramadan is Elapsing but Calamities Persist

The holy month of Ramadan is elapsing in the same manner as it commenced with the Muslim Ummah having no one to protect neither their lives nor their properties. The holy month of Ramadan commenced with the Muslims divided when to start fasting and its ending in the same scenario. Despite the Ummah’s zeal and ambition to witness their unity, even the question of starting and ending the month of Ramadan. It is quite unfortunate this remains elusive. In spite of the fact that the holy month of Ramadan is a month of Quran still the relationship between Ramadan and holy Quran remains in the reciting of many chapters and completing the whole Mus’haf without the slightest consideration of its righteous teaching or full implementation of its guidance in our daily life. Its now almost ninety fourth Ramadan since the holy Quran ceased to serve us guidance to the whole mankind in solving their daily life problems.

We are celebrating Eidul Fitr with attractive attire, new clothes and with assortments of delicious meals hoping that our fasting, taraweh, reciting and tahajud shall be accepted before Allah (swt). Nevertheless, Muslims from other regions like Palestine and Syria had no tranquility in performing a single ibadah. Especially our brothers and sisters in Gaza, Palestine. While other Muslims search for Laylatul Qadr, our brothers and sisters everywhere search for places to shelter themselves from heavy bombardment being launched by filthy Zionist. This kind of evil, brutality and inhumanity has faced no resistance from the so called superpower, as if the shedding of this precious blood, or the annihilation of sacred places has no weight. The Prophet (saw) says:

«لَزَوَالُ الدُّنْيَا أَهْوَنُ عَلَى اللَّهِ مِنْ قَتْلِ مُؤْمِنٍ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ»

“The destruction of the whole world is better than shedding the blood of a Believer”.

The massacre being carried out by the Zionist is appalling in that pieces of human flesh and torsos of children, the elderly and disable are scattered everywhere. What is their felony?


Where are the formidable and indomitable soldiers in the Islamic countries like Egypt, Saud Arabia, Pakistan, Iran and others? Isn’t there no one amongst them who is even ashamed of his negligence of Islamic duties whose heart may be galled thus prompt him to undertake his Islamic responsibility and consequently be praised in this life and hereafter thus creating joyful return to their Creator?!

Where are the rulers in these regions, what holds them back and procrastinate in hastening to deploy soldiers and protect their weak oppressed brothers and sisters? There isn’t even an iota of zeal and ambition in their callous hearts seeing the precious blood of their brothers and sisters being spilt by ignoble, cursed filthy people whose ancestors are monkeys and apes?!

For how long shall the puppets rulers in our Islamic countries connive in and keep mum over these heinous acts of brutalities and oppression being subjected to their brothers and sisters, while they emolliently conceal themselves behind curtains of prayers for the injured, wounded, orphans and widows without taking a single valuable decisive action? Did not these puppets know that the Great Prophet (SAW) use to straighten the soldiers lines and prepare them for combat and then pray to Almighty Allah (SWT) for the victory … for such actions the rulers and people should work for, not to prevent the armies from aiding and helping the people of Gaza and only pray for them! For how long the ummah will not speak out against those rulers and work to bring the real change that will establish the shield that will protect and defend our brothers and sisters in Gaza and other Muslim lands.


We are celebrating Eidul- Fitr while in East Africa region there is a threat of war against Islam and Muslims under the guise of war on terror while in reality Muslims are the only target. America proceeded by creating puppet government to form Special Forces to fight Muslims and Islam under America custodianship with full sponsorship financially, training and without any interference from respective governments. Special forces like anti terror police unity (ATPU) of Kenya and their like in Tanzania have become a symbol of breaking their own laws in order to perform a brutality, torture, intrusion into privacy, night raids, clandestine deportation, Muslim women degradation like what happen in MWANZA recently. This Special Forces perform this heinous act with the highest deportment of obstinacy and pride, apart from a load of accusation in terms of killing innocent Muslim activists and exploding bombs in an endeavor to justify the military political objectives of their donor. There are rampart murders and arrests of Muslims in different cities in Kenya, Zanzibar, Arusha, Mwanza with the highest degradation even to women and children. Muslims in these countries are regarded as second-class citizens worth of oppression despite their huge contribution and their ancestors in this country.

The East Africa region is being faced with a political tussle and tug of war between America and European countries all fighting to have their influence in the region. This is a result of the huge natural resources being discovered in this region. Oil, Gas, and other natural resources like gold, diamond, uranium, etc. Not to mention the strategic significance of this region. Including a mass of Indian Ocean which is crucial economically and security wise. On top of this, the area borders important Islamic countries in the Arab peninsula, Sudan, Somalia, etc. All these add value to this area in the eyes of capitalist countries to the extent that they are ready to create chaos, mayhem and civil war in order to achieve their objective i.e. to dominate and pilfer natural resources from this region.

That leads to constant insecurity and fear among its inhabitants. Fear and threats hover over Muslims in Kenya following unwarranted deaths in the Muslims predominantly areas along the Coastal and North Eastern regions. These brutal deaths caused mayhem, fear and panic amongst the inhabitants of the entire region of the Coast starting from Mpeketoni, Poromoko, Hindi extending all along till Witu. Most astonishing thing, all these happenings and there are military camps of the Kenya Navy and US Marine, but the culprits perpetrated their atrocities for almost ten hours undisturbed. Consequently, the insecurity has proliferated to other areas like Malindi and Mombasa where thuggery and murders are being reported daily. The question is, why have all these tended to take place recently? For it is almost a year since these brutal incidents took toll in these once restive and predominantly Muslims areas? Definitely, any one with insight view will perceive that Islam and Muslims are being targeted. So as to obliterate them and when any murder are committed it becomes easy to pin the blame on them.

Oh esteemed Muslims!

Whatever is happening around the world and in East Africa specifically, is a clear manifestation of the dire need of the Ummah for a protector and guardian who will take care of them against these atrocities. A guardian who will unite Muslim forces all together against their foes, this is none other than the Khalifah as stated by the Prophet (saw),

«إنما الإمام جُنّة، يقاتل من ورائه ويتقى به»

“Indeed the Imam is a shield. Muslims fight behind him and get protected by him.”

Despite all the atrocities being perpetrated against us, each night that elapses indicate the dawn of victory is near. This is undoubted truth of the Prophet’s glad tiding of the re-establishment of the Khilafah “Caliphate” Rashidah that is potent and strong. Contrary to the fake caliphate which was recently announced in some parts of Iraq that is not more than just a name, which was intentionally announced to confuse Muslims, to protect the infidels, denigrate and disparage Islam, while Does not have the real bearings of a state according to the rulings of Islam!

Finally, Hizb ut Tahrir in East Africa sincerely calls upon you Muslims to carry the responsibility of working along with them in the quest for the reestablishment of the Khilafah “Caliphate” Ar Rashida which was divinely prophesized by our Prophet Muhammad (saw).

We ask Allah (swt) through our good deeds that we have gathered during these days of the holy month with the aim of getting closer to Him (swt) to grant us a speedy victory by establishing the Khilafah “Caliphate” on the path of the Prophethood and bestow upon us the shield that shall protect us and enable us worship the Almighty as He should be worshiped without any fear. With great honour and esteem, we wish you all an Eid Mubarak in this significant day as chosen by Allah Taala the Creator of the earth and the heavens.
