What should be our contribution in Khilaafah?

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

How to reconstruct the KILAFAH? What should be our controbution to reconstruct it?

What should be our contribution in Khilaafah?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah Subhanah has laid upon the believers one duty and responsibility:


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 51 Surah Dhariyat verse 56: I have not created the jinn and men except for this that they should worship Me alone.


This duty can be broken down into two parts:

On an individual level as a believer

and, as on a collective level as an Ummah


It is the duty of every muslim to learn and follow the approved way of life called ‘Al-Islam’ in light of the guidance of the Quran and Sunnah, and to propagate this deen beyond the self-created barriers of race, language, color, caste, nationality, geography, etc.


And when every muslim on an individual level strives to become a ‘true’ muslim, it is only natural that as an Ummah they will strive to establish the Commands and Laws of Allah Subhanah on the land; and the natural process of this would be a leadership or ‘Khilaafah’ of the believers to come into existence.


If one tries to reverse this natural process, and tries to enforce the leadership or ‘Khilaafah’ first before the majority of the population become ‘true’ believers; it will result in divisions, anarchy, and dissension amongst the Ummah.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 13 Surah Raad verse 11(part): Verily never will Allah change the condition of a people, until they change it themselves (with their own souls).


Our contribution and the contribution of every true believer, who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day and wishes to live his life under the Command and Law of Allah Subhanah on this earth, is to first and foremost, wholeheartedly embrace Islam in his own life; and secondly propagate this approved way of life to all who are willing to listen to good caution.


Once this is accomplished, the natural process of this would be the unity of the believers, and thus the accomplishment of a ‘khilaafah’ political system. This process may take fifty years, or a hundred years, or even five-hundred years….Allah Alone Knows Best, but this is the system which will bring about a united Khilaafah leadership amongst the believers.


A similar question of the establishment of the ‘khilaafah’ was put forward to a learned scholar in one of our study groups, and the scholar gave a reply which had plenty of food for thought. His opinion to the timing of the establishment of the ‘khilaafah’ was: “The day you see the believers attend the congregational ‘fajr’ prayers in the mosques as you see them attend the ‘Jumuaa’ prayers, know that the ‘khilaafah’ is not far away!’


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
