Bismillah Ar-Rahmaan Ar-Raheem. Alhumdulillah. Peace and blessings on Muhammad (sallalahu alaihi wa alihi wa sallam), his Noble Companions and Family. Dear Committed brothers, dear committed sisters,

And every time the revolutionary determination went into a higher gear, the anti-Islamic forces stepped up their dual stick and carrot approach. One of the carrots some Islamists are nibbling on today is a formula for sharing power. This is not new! What is new is the departure from the Prophet’s policy. The Kingdom of Qurayshi Arabia offered the Prophet to rule and apply Islam for one or two years in their stay, and they would apply their system and regulations for one or two years. Some present day Muslims would celebrate for such an opportunity. Their argument would go as follows: Islam is intrinsically superior to the other ideologies and systems. The people are in dire need of Islam and they know it not. Some people are even Muslims and the only thing lacking in their lives is the implementation of the Islamic penal code and law. If we are given the opportunity to present people with the excellent qualities of Islam, then we should do so, because once they have tasted Islam, they will not settle for anything less. This abridged argument contains at least a couple of fallacies. First of all, it accepts the good faith of Taghut, and it assumes that Taghut is going to honour its word. So there is an element of reliance upon Taghut to establish Islam. The other false assumption is that Islam is capable of winning over adherents who will en masse make a difference simply by granting Islam a stage appearance. Besides, Allah Most High and Most Knowledgeable answered this Taghuti offer with a policy from above seven heavens:

قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ

لَا أَعْبُدُ مَا تَعْبُدُونَ

وَلَا أَنتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا أَعْبُدُ

وَلَا أَنَا عَابِدٌ مَّا عَبَدتُّمْ

وَلَا أَنتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا أَعْبُدُ

لَكُمْ دِينُكُمْ وَلِيَ دِينِ

Say: O you who reject faith, I don’t conform to that which you conform to, nor will you conform to that which I conform to, and I will not conform to that which you want me to conform to, nor will you conform to that which I conform to, to you be your way and to me mine (Surah Al Kafirun verse 1-6)

Muhammad’s lifelong struggle to destroy Taghut in the sphere of reality has to be resuscitated. Absolutely no-one in the history of mankind demolished in so short a period of time as many Taghuts as did this unique revolutionary. When we review twenty-three years of liberation and revolution led by Muhammad, we cannot but submit to the fact that this revolutionary was inspired by revelation. Virtually alone, and unsupported by any secular power, he managed to cause a radical change in the spiritual, social, economic, military, political and cultural activities of man. He was a revolutionary against the contorted concepts of God which cleansed the human mind and soul of false images and ideas of God and brought home the pristine oneness of Allah.

His was an all out war against bias in all its manifestations, especially racist and nationalist bigotry. This revolution anchored the policies of a single human family, thereby crushing the narrow mindedness of racial supremacy. Taqwa was to replace all other dogmatic criterion. There is revolutionary value, justice and law in the following Qur’anic principles

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ شُعُوبًا وَقَبَائِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوا ۚ إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِندَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ

O Mankind, We created you male and female and made you derivatives of other peoples so that you may know each other, not that you may despise each other. Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is he who is constantly on guard against Allah’s power presence… (Surah Hujurat verse 13)

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنْهُمَا رِجَالًا كَثِيرًا وَنِسَاءً

O Mankind, revere your guardian Lord who created you out of a single nafs, created of like nature his mate and from them twain scattered like seeds countless men and women… (Surah An Nisa’ verse 1)

The Prophet says Not among us are those who live, fight and die in the name of Nationalism. It was and still is a revolution against social and class discrimination. At that time, when the Qurayshi feelings of superiority was at their peak, and when Quraysh in the days of Hajj use to stand at Muzdalifa, and proceed from there while the rest of the pilgrims stood at Arafat, and proceeded from there. The revolutionary defiance and directives were revealed as Muhammad (sallalahu alaihi wa sallam) who belonged to the Qurayshi citizenry stood with the rest of non-Qurayshis at Arafat, and with the Qur’an addressing Quraysh:

ثُمَّ أَفِيضُوا مِنْ حَيْثُ أَفَاضَ النَّاسُ

Then pass on quickly from the place from where the multitude do so… (Surah Al Baqarah verse 199)

This was a revolutionary method and measure which equalised all people. The Qurayshi pomp and pride could not accept or see a Qurayshi daughter or sister married to an average Arab or commoner. Then, along comes the Prophet who was from the best stock in Quraysh and he adjoins his cousin Zainab bin Jahash in marriage to the socially inferior Zayd. Today, the daughters and sisters of Saudi Quraysh are not wedded to the other Muslims, unless it may be out of some interest. Today, Quraysh reincarnated as the royal family of Saudi Arabia performs its Tawaaf, after vacating the immediate vicinity of the Ka’bah from the presence of the other Muslims, and there are no Muslim scholars, many of whom are swarming into the petro-domain of quick wealth, who have displayed the will to rehearse these meanings to the contemporaneous lords of the Saudi clan. Today there are heated debates in certain Islamic circles pertaining to the Islamic legality of revolutionary change in the regimes and dictatorships that have come into existence in Muslim lands. Menacingly, these establishmentarian sponsored Islamists don’t favour a rupture with the Taghuti system. But, as a matter of Prophetic revolutionary discipline, we do not have a choice but to take issue with the established Taghuts, especially those that are mattressed by the affluence of petro-riches while their brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity are subjected to a general condition of oppression and injustice throughout Asia, Africa and the World at large.

The reasons for any Islamic Movement’s hostility towards the autocratic regimes are the following

ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَاكَ عَلَىٰ شَرِيعَةٍ مِّنَ الْأَمْرِ فَاتَّبِعْهَا وَلَا تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَاءَ الَّذِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

Then We put you on the right way, so follow that way, and don’t follow the desires of those who know not. (Surah Al Jaathiyah verse 18)

إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَا إِلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ بِالْحَقِّ لِتَحْكُمَ بَيْنَ النَّاسِ بِمَا أَرَاكَ اللَّهُ

We have sent down to you the book in truth that you might judge between men as guided by Allah (Surah An Nisa’ verse 105)

وَمَن لَّمْ يَحْكُم بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْكَافِرُونَ

… if any do fail to judge by the light of what Allah has revealed, they are no better than the Kafirs. (Surah Maa’idah verse 44)

وَأَنِ احْكُم بَيْنَهُم بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ

So judge between them by what Allah has revealed… (Surah Al Maa’idah verse 49)

وَأَنِ احْكُم بَيْنَهُم بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ وَلَا تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ وَاحْذَرْهُمْ أَن يَفْتِنُوكَ عَن بَعْضِ مَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ إِلَيْكَ

… and this He commands: judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and follow not their vain desires, but beware of them lest they beguile you from that which Allah has sent down to you… (Surah Maa’idah verse 49)

أَفَحُكْمَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ يَبْغُونَ ۚ وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ مِنَ اللَّهِ حُكْمًا لِّقَوْمٍ يُوقِنُونَ

Do they then seek a judgement from the days of ignorance, but who can give better judgement than Allah? (Surah Maa’idah verse 50)

And, there are other hadiths from the Prophet (alaihi as salaam), that demand and suggest rebellion against the established Taghuts travelling in our Muslim lands. Today, there is no excuse, nor alibi for the Muslims to ignore or neglect this effort that belongs to the Muslim Ummah, and the mustadafin (oppressed peoples) of Allah’s creation. Striving to achieve an Islamic Revolution is an embodiment of the revolutionary impulse of Muhammad (alaih salaam). It has become obvious, even to non- Muslims, that the super and regional powers, (the US, the SU, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the Zionist occupiers of Palestine, Egypt, and virtually all the Taghuts in the world,) are involved directly more than indirectly against the revolutionary stance of certain Muslims, but let not the sons of the Islamic Movement take the side of the kuffaar as some moderates would like us to see. Throughout this khutbah, I tried to demonstrate the affinity between Islam and revolution. It should be clear by now, that the two are synonymous and inseparable. Whoever the implementers of the Prophets revolutionary concepts are, be they the Ulema, the combatants, and the oppressed and committed sons of the Islamic Revolution, they are on the side of Allah’s Messengers:

On Shuaib (alaihi as salaam)’s side against mercantilism, financial exploitation and money monopoly;

On Musa (alaihi as salaam)’s side against political corruption and super power arrogance;

On Lut (alaihi as salaam)’s side against moral degeneration and ethical degradation.

These are the most chronic problems of our times, and if the leaders of Islamic associations, parties, organisations and local movements want to take the side of this historic procession, then the only step they have to take is the revolutionary march into the future as is outlined in the Qur’an, implemented by the Prophet and preserved by the Mujahidin.

وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ

… and if anyone puts his trust in Allah, the sufficient is Allah for him. (Surah At Talaq verse 3)
