Restoration Of The Modern Khilafah ….Thinking Under The Banner Of One Unit
The 1400-year history of Islam bears witness to the fact that the greatest hand in making the light that shone from the Arab regents the sun of the world was unity. Every fort was conquered by the desire for unity and solidarity. Every wall of disbelief fell and for centuries no one was able to match Islam. The biggest secret behind this unity was the teaching of the Qur’an, which commanded unity. The Khilafah was the most important and strong link in the unity of the Islamic world. The institution of the Khilafah united the Muslims. He is a Muslim, whether from the deserts of Arabia or the land of Turkey. That Muslim, whether from India or the Far East, belonged to a unit called Islam.
The institution of the Khilafah was the name of a great hope among the Muslims that whatever it is, the Muslims are being the collective spokesman through the Caliph. As soon as the caliph declared jihad, armies from all directions began to gather. Look at Muhammad ibn Qasim. When he left Damascus, he was commanding a small army, but by the time he reached Sindh, he was the commander of a very large army.
The greatest strength of Islam lies in its Khilafah system and collective justice. The institution of the Khilafah can be re-enacted in the 21st century by introducing democratic principles. The methods and principles I have outlined are very simple and practical. On the contrary, I have suggested that these principles already exist in the world. If there is one thing that is lacking to achieve all these goals, it is our struggle. If we run the movement together, convince the people of the importance of the Khilafah, we can succeed. Because we have peace under the roof of the state.
What a simple way to have all the countries first elect their representative and head and then all the representatives together choose a caliph. All of these can establish our modern and strong caliphate. Which has its own capital, which represents the entire Muslim Ummah. Even if it is a miracle, but think how powerful we can be if this happens by the grace of Allah. When about 2 billion people come together and raise their voices for Kashmir, Palestine and Cyprus, who will stop us?
In order to complete this system, we must first believe that the Khilafah can still be revived. We have to unite our thinking under the banner of one unit. With one flag, one constitution, one caliph, one religion and one army, we will once again touch the blue wheel.
Khilafah seems impossible in the 21st century. Because it is said that there is no place for a system like Khilafah in the modern world, or that Khilafah is the name of an extinct institution. But remember that if the institution of the Khilafah had not been established in the Muslim conquests, the powers of that time would never have been piled up. The question is, how can 57 countries be nurtured in one series at a time? The answer is very simple.
Take a look recently. The then superpower America is also the name of a group of 50 states. All US states have their own constitutions. The most surprising thing is that all the states have their own flag. But when these 50 states unite, a great power of the world, the country of the superpower America, comes into being.
The second biggest example in this regard is the United Kingdom. Despite losing all its empires and kingdoms, the United Kingdom is still divided into four units, which include the territories of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. All of these states are independent and have their own constitutions. But Great Britain’s slogan makes them one body, one soul. Apart from these two powers, the European Union is also an important example. In the past, the Soviet Union, which ruled for most of the 20th century, was not a single state. As the name suggests, it was a union of Central Asian states, European states, and present-day Russia. And thanks to this alliance, Russia is still a world power. Remember that present day Russia is also the name of a federation which consists of different small states. In addition, China’s commune system and state financial freedoms are trying to make it a superpower. Purpose
If the new world, the United States of America, can be united, why can’t we? What if Europe can come together despite intense linguistic and geographical conflicts? Why is it not possible for all Islamic countries to unite? We have been repeatedly urged to remain united in the hadiths and Qur’anic verses. But has external pressure overwhelmed our faith? The fact is that we do not want to be together.
Is it not possible for all countries to declare a Khilafah together? 57 countries together make one flag, one constitution, one caliph. Just as all 50 states in the United States have constitutional freedoms, so should all Islamic countries today. While foreign affairs and defense affairs are under the Khilafah. All the countries together first elect their regional head and then that person becomes the direct arm of the caliph. An assembly should be formed with the participation of all countries, in which every country should be given equal representation. In this way, the Islamic countries together can still implement the Khilafah in the 21st century. Interpreted 9 billion people. May they have a united army, a united economy and a united constitution. The caliph should be elected for a fixed term and a completely independent federation should be established by democratic means. Every country and part of the region has the right to participate in the caliphate without hindrance. Let every region be represented and a very strong and powerful state come into being. We can call it anything, Khilafah, Islamic Federation or anything. Through this alliance, all countries have regional cultural freedoms and internally each state is free.
Guess what the glory of the Muslim nation will be if this happens. There will be oil wealth, a vast economy, nuclear assets and an army of millions and even crores. In every way we will become a force. When all the Muslim world will come together for Mujahid Jihad at the call of a caliph, then who will challenge us?
In today’s modern world, all regional divisions are in the name of nationality. Each country has its own definition of nationality. But in contrast, Islam has a very simple and clear definition of nationality. Anyone who speaks is a Muslim. No matter what area it belongs to. Whether he is from Punjab or Bengal, Turkey or the Arab world, he is a Muslim. And the body is one. The definition of nationality in Islam goes beyond color, race, nation, tribe and even geography. In order to join the Muslim Ummah, one only has to speak. Therefore, division in the name of race is against the principles of Islam.
