THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
BY SHAIKH ABDULLAH AL FAISAL
13 June 2014
Notes taken by AT6
Edited and formatted by Abu Hafiza & AT6
- What is the empire?
- The empire is the khilafah, it is the Islamic state.
- So when we say the empire strikes back we are saying the Islamic state has come back.
- According to shariah law it is haraam for you to be without a caliph for more than 3 days.
- Anyone who dies without giving his bayah to a caliph, he dies in a state of jaahiliyah.
Ibn 'Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "One who withdraws his hand from obedience (to the Amir) will find no argument (in his defense) when he stands before Allah on the Day of Resurrection; and one who dies without having sworn allegiance will die the death of one belonging to the Days of Ignorance." [Muslim & Book 1 hadith 665] & (Musnad Ahmed volume 4 page 96) [Sunan an-Nasa'i Vol. 5, Book 37, Hadith 4119]
- When did we lose our caliphate?
- Many people think it is 1923
- But it was actually in 1917 because that's when the Belfour declaration was.
- In order for the caliph to be legitimate, 11 conditions have to be found.
THE CONDITIONS FOR THE CALIPHATE TO BE LEGITIMATE
CONDITION # 1: THE CALIPH HAS TO BE A MUSLIM, NOT A KAAFIR OR A MURTAD
- The reason for this condition is because the Prophet said to topple the leader if you see clear kufr.
On the authority of Ubada bin As-Samit the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “…topple the leader if you see clear kufr…” [Al-Bukhari (7056) and Muslim (1709)]
CONDITION # 2: THE CALIPH SHOULD BE MALE
Narrated By Abu Bakra: During the battle of Al-Jamal, Allah benefited me with a Word (I heard from the Prophet). When the Prophet heard the news that the people of the
had made the daughter of Khosrau their Queen (ruler), he said, "Never will succeed such a nation as makes a woman their ruler." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 88, Hadith #219] Persia
CONDITION # 3: THE CALIPH SHOULD BE MATURE
CONDITION # 4: THE CALIPH SHOULD BE SANE AND NOT MAD
- The scholars came up with this condition because of Surah An-Nisa verse 5.
And give not unto the foolish your property which Allah has made a means of support for you, but feed and clothe them therewith, and speak to them words of kindness and justice. (An-Nisa 4:5)
CONDITION # 5: THE CALIPH SHOULD BE FREE
- It is haraam for you to have a caliph who is locked up in prison.
- A caliph cannot be in prison.
- Also, if a shaikh is in prison, you are not allowed to take fatwas from him.
- If a shaikh is in prison and you write him a letter, you can take fatwas regarding menstruation.
- But you can't take fatwas regarding fiqhul waqi.
- Fiqhul waqi means the current events on the ground.
- Because the shaikh doesn't know the fiqhul waqi, he's in prison.
- Secondly, what if the shaikh is tortured to pass a fatwa.
- Abu Muhammad al Maqdisi himself said not to take fatwas from a shaikh who is in prison.
- Maybe the taghoot is lying, saying these shaikhs said these fatwas.
- How do you know the shaikh really passed the fatwa?
- You didn't hear it from the horse's mouth.
CONDITION # 6: THE CALIPH HAS TO BE AN ALIM OF ISLAM NOT AN IGNORAMOUS
CONDITION # 7: THE CALIPH HAS TO BE A MUJAHID
- The evidence for this is Surah 3:121.
And (remember) when you (Muhammad SAW) left your household in the morning to post the believers at their stations for the battle (of Uhud). And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower. (Aali Imran 3:121)
- The caliph has to fight on the battlefield.
- The Prophet used to go to the frontline to fight with his sahabas.
- He didn't stay at home with his wives and tell his sahabas to fight.
- He went out.
CONDITION # 8: THE CALIPH SHOULD BE WISE
CONDITION # 9: THE CALIPH MUST BE MERCIFUL WITH HIS SUBORDINATES
- Sometimes they are going to make mistakes.
- Mujahideen are not perfect.
- The sahabas made a mistake at the battle of Uhud and the Prophet was gentle with them.
Allah (SWT) said in the Qur'an surah Al Imran verse 159
And by the Mercy of Allah, you dealt with them gently. And had you been severe and harsh hearted, they would have broken away from about you; so pass over (their faults), and ask (Allah's) Forgiveness for them; and consult them in the affairs. Then when you have taken a decision, put your trust in Allah, certainly, Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him). (Aali Imran 3:159)
CONDITION # 10: THE CALIPH SHOULD BE JUST
Allah (SWT) said in the Qur'an, Surah Al Baqarah verse 124
"And of my offspring (to make leaders)." (Allah) said, "My Covenant (Prophethood, etc.) includes not Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers)." (Al-Baqarah 2:124)
- The covenant is prophethood as well as khilafah.
CONDITION # 11: THE CALIPH SHOULD BE FROM QURAISH
This matter (rule) will remain with the Quraish, and none will rebel against them, but Allah will throw him down on his face, as long as the Quraish uphold the Deen. [Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 89, Number 253]
- Abu Bakr al Baghdadi fulfils all 11 conditions.
- The caliph should be from Quraish.
- It's going to be very difficult for Mullah Umar to be accepted by the entire Muslim Ummah.
- I don't think Mullah umar is from Quraish.
- Al Qaeda has done their share of waking up the ummah.
- Usama bin Laden accomplished everything he set out to do before he died.
- Don't think we are here to bash Al Qaeda.
- Usama bin Laden set out to wake up the Muslims because they were sleeping.
MICHAEL SCHEUER (EX-CIA) SAYS "OSAMA BIN LADEN DIED A SUCCESS"
- He set out to establish jihad all over the world and he did that.
- He set out to bankrupt the economy of the taghoot and he accomplished that.
- Because the taghoot spent a trillion dollars fighting in
and . Iraq
Allah (SWT) said in the Qur'an, Surah Al Anfal verse 36
Verily, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to hinder (men) from the Path of Allah, and so will they continue to spend it; but in the end it will become an anguish for them. Then they will be overcomed. And those who disbelieve will be gathered unto Hell. (Al-Anfal 8:36)
- Allah (SWT) told you the taghoot is going to become bankrupt in the above mentioned ayah.
- Europe and
- It's a quagmire.
- If they stay in
their soldiers are going to get killed. Afghanistan
- And if you leave the Taliban is going to come back.
- Kofi Annan said that.
- Those soldiers who got killed in Afghanistan were born in vain, lived in vain and died in vain.
- They died as infidels to be in the hellfire forever.
- They died fighting for the army of the taghoot.
- All the so called Muslim soldiers who join the armies of the kuffar have apostated because of Surah An-Nisa verse 76.
Allah (SWT) said in the Qur'an, Surah An-Nisa verse 76
Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitan (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitan (Satan). (An-Nisa 4:76)
- This is our hujjah and it is impossible for you to refute it.
- The Prophet said the best speech is the Book of Allah.
Jabir ibn Abdullah (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said in the Jumu’ah khutbah: "...To proceed. The best of the speech is embodied in the Book of Allah, and the best of the guidance is the guidance given by Muhammad. And the most evil affairs are their innovations; and every innovation is error..." [Sahih Muslim (2/592) No. 867]
HOW WAS THE CALIPHATE DESTROYED?
- A man by the name of Thomas Edward Chapman set out to destroy the caliphate.
- He was born in 1888 and died in 1935.
- Thomas Edward Chapman was Jewish.
- Dr Harold shipman was also Jewish.
- He hated old people and killed 500 of his patients.
- Thomas Edward Chapman changed his name to Thomas Edward Lawrence.
- Because the name Chapman would expose him as Jew.
- Not only was he Jewish, he was also a homosexual.
- He was also an illegitimate child.
- In 1918 he went to the
- All it took for the Arabs to rebel against the Turks was one English man to incite them in the name of Arab nationalism.
- The caliphate was in the hands of the Turks.
- It was called the Ottoman Empire.
- They even made a documentary about what Lawrence did.
- He used Arab nationalism to incite the Arabs against the Turks.
- The Arabs picked up weapons and killed their Turkish brothers.
- They did this because it was said to them that if they do that, they are going to be made into independent states.
- The British stabbed the Arabs in the back by establishing the state of Israel.
- The Arabs didn't expect that.
- Israel is a cancer in the body of the ummah.
- On the 16th of May 1916, the British and the French sat at a round table to negotiate how to carve up the Arab states between themselves.
- This is called the Sykes-picot agreement.
- Russia was invited to the meeting as an observer to the agreement.
- It touches a nerve of the ulama of haq when they hear about the Sykes-picot agreement.
- One of the aims and objectives of ISIS is to get rid of the Sykes-picot agreement.
- There should be no border between Iraq and Syria.
- The French said they were going to hold on to Syria and left Iraq for the British.
- That border between Iraq and Syria does not exist anymore.
- The Sykes-picot agreement is a satanic agreement in which the taghoot sat around a round table to carve up Muslim land between themselves.
- The ulama of haq despise such an agreement.
- Today we see the ulama are trying to wake up the ummah and the taghoot is trying to destroy the ummah.
THE 12 STRATEGIES OF THE TAGHOOT TO KEEP SHARIAH AND KHILAFAH AWAY FROM THE UMMAH
1 - TO TURN US AGAINST EACH OTHER BY USING ETHNICITY OR DIFFERENCES IN AQEEDA
- Bush is a compulsive liar but he spoke the truth sometimes.
- He said he's going to turn us against each other.
- They turn us against each other with racism, nationalism and tribalism.
2 - TO INFILTRATE US WITH WICKED SCHOLARS
- Scholars like Hamza Yusuf, Yasir Qadhi and Tariq Ramadan.
- Hamza Yusuf said you can pray to Muhammad.
HAMZA YUSUF SAYS YOU CAN PRAY TO MUHAMMAD
3 - TO SPREAD RAND ISLAM AMONG THE MUSLIMS
- RAND Islam is Islam without al wala wal bara.
- They say al wala wal bara is hate speech.
- RAND Islam is Islam without al wala wal bara, kufr bit taghoot, sharia, khilafah and jihad.
- The RAND foundation said the goofy Sufis are natural allies of the West.
A 2007 report by the Rand Corp., a U.S. think tank, advised Western governments to "harness" Sufism, saying its adherents were "natural allies of the West." Read more:
4 - TO INFILTRATE US WITH STRAY SECTS
- They give these sects grants to spread their poison in the ummah, like the barelvis, the tablighi jamaah, the madkhalis and the Sufis.
- THE RAND foundation loves the Sufis because they marginalise Islam to dhikr.
- They wish that every Muslim becomes a Sufi so they won't want shariah, khilafah and jihad.
- They won't topple the taghoot.
5 - TO PUT ALL THE SINCERE SCHOLARS IN JAIL
- The Prophet said the scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets.
The Holy Prophet (saw) said, “The Scholars are the Inheritors of the Prophets” (Sunan At-Tirmidhi Vol. 5 p.2685)
6 - TO SPREAD PROPAGANDA AGAINST THE MUJAHIDEEN WHO ARE FIGHTING FOR KHILAFAH AND SHARIAH
- So you'll hear the hypocrites calling a movement like ISIS khawaarij.
- They take their Aqeedah from CNN.
- There are many Muslims who take their Aqeedah from BBC and CNN and call the mujahideen terrorists.
- If you do this, maybe you have sincerity issues.
- Be careful of opening up your filthy mouths to call people terrorists.
- I despise people who take their Aqeedah from CNN and BBC.
- You the madkhali who is quick to call people khawaarij, look in the mirror and you'll see who the khawaarij are.
- You love the taghoot so much you spy for them.
- You love the taghoot so much, you are bedfellows with them.
- You are helping your Christian brothers to lock up the Muslims.
- You can't be a Muslim until you reject the taghoot.
7 - TO KILL THE ULAMA OF HAQ
- They brag and boast that they killed Anwar al Awlaki and his son.
- I thought you protect children, why did you kill his son?
- Many of you rejoiced when Barack Obama came into power.
- If you put a black man in office, he's going to kill more Muslims than the white man.
- Because he has to prove that he's a house nigger.
- Obama killed more Muslims with drones than Bush, maybe 10 times the number.
8 - THEY PUT MILITARY BASES IN AS MANY MUSLIM COUNTRIES AS POSSIBLE TO KEEP SHARIAH AND KHILAFAH AT BAY
U.S. military bases in the middle east
- The drones that killed Anwar Al Awlaki and his son came from KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia).
- They even have military bases in the holy land.
On the authority of Jabir bin ‘Abdullah: "Umar bin Al-Khattab informed me that he heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) say: "I will expel the Jews and the Christians from the Arabian Peninsula, and I will not leave anyone in it except a Muslim."' [Sahih Muslim (3/1388) No. 1767, Sunan Tirmidhi (4/156) No. 1607, Sunan Abu Dawud (3/165) No. 3030, Musnad Ahmad (1/32) No. 219]
- Their strategy is to have military bases in many Muslim countries to kill the mujahideen with their drones.
- The shaikh that passed a fatwa to allow the army of the taghoot in the holy land has done an act of major kufr.
- The shaikh has betrayed the blood of the sahabas who fought to cleanse the Arabian peninsula of kufr and shirk.
- It is haraam to become a bedfellow of the taghoot.
- Many of you do not have a problem with the fatwa because you worship personalities not Allah (SWT).
Allah (SWT) said in the Qur'an, Surah Al Ma'idah verse 51
O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliya' (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliya' to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers and unjust). (Al-Ma'idah 5:51)
Ibn Hazm Stated in Al-Muhalla (11/138): "What is correct is that His statement, the Most High, "And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely he is one of them." (The Quran 5:51), should be understood on the basis of its apparent meaning. The person being referred to is a disbeliever from the generality of disbelievers, and no two Muslims disagree regarding this."
- The Pakistanis helped the Americans to kill a million Afghanis.
- This is an act of major kufr.
- Ibn Hazm said there are no two opinions about this.
- The mujahidin of ISIS take most of their fatwas from Ibn Hazm.
9 - TO KEEP SHARIAH AT BAY AND TO INSTALL PUPPET REGIMES LIKE NOURI AL MALIKI AND HAMID KARZAI
- These are called puppet regimes installed by the taghoot.
- Nouri Al Maliki is not even qualified.
- He used to sell panties in the marketplace.
10 - TO DESTROY THE ECONOMY OF A MUSLIM COUNTRY WITH SANCTION AND EMBARGO TO TRASH YOUR CURRENCY
- They do this to countries which are inclined to shariah.
11 - TO BRAND YOU A ROGUE STATE IF YOU DON'T FOLLOW THE TAGHOOT AND INVADE YOU
- They bomb you back into the stone ages like they did with Afghanistan and Iraq.
- The taghoot is a brutal dictator.
12 - TO USE THE HYPOCRITES TO TRANSLATE FOR THEM WHEN THEY PUT BOOTS ON THE GROUND TO MAKE SURE THEIR OCCUPATION IS SUCCESSFUL
- They even say they will give British passports to those who translated for them.
- The translator is dangerous because he knows the language and the terrain.
- A translator is very dangerous.
- He is a hypocrite and an apostate.
13 - WHENEVER THE MUJAHIDEEN LAUNCH AN OFFENSIVE AGAINST AN APOSTATE REGIME, THE TAGHOOT JOIN IN AND TAKE OVER THE REVOLUTION
- They did this in Libya.
- The reason why they took over the revolution is because Libya has the largest oil reserves in Africa.
- They admitted they can't afford these oil reserves to fall into the hands of the fundamentalists because then they will spread the revolution all over.
- So even though the kuffar are compulsive liars, Allah (SWT) made them speak the truth.
- Just like when George Bush said it is a crusade.
- Muslims lose battles but not wars.
- We can drag the war on for 20 years.
- We are approaching 2 billion.
- So we can afford to drag the war on for 50 years.
- How can you defeat a people who see Paradise in the barrels of your guns?
- How can you defeat a people who love to die the way you love to live?
- This is why Kofi Annan said you are in a quagmire.
- If you pull out the Taliban will come to power and if you stay you will lose.
THEY PLOT AND ALLAH PLANS
And they (disbelievers) plotted [to kill 'Iesa (Jesus)], and Allah planned too. And Allah is the Best of the planners. (Aali Imran 3:54)
- The illuminatis blew up those two buildings in New York, the twin towers, and used it as a reason to invade Muslim countries to steal oil.
- This is what they did in Iraq.
- They got rid of Saddam Hussein in order to get their hands on the oil.
- When the kuffar got rid of the ba’athist regime in Iraq, they did a favour to the mujahideen.
- All the kuffar were thinking about was money, oil and natural resources.
- All the kuffar can think about is their belly and their private parts, not Allah (SWT).
- By toppling the regime in Iraq, the Americans set the stage for the return of the khilafah.
- This was a gift on a silver platter for the mujahideen.
- This is why we say, they plot and Allah (SWT) plans and Allah is the best of planners.
- Many of you were disappointed with the invasion of Iraq because a million Muslims got killed.
- But I say to you every disappointment is a new appointment.
- The new appointment is the return of the khilafah.
HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF
- In the year 7 AH, the Rasool conquered Khaibar.
- When Khaibar fell it is called history's turning point.
- Khaibar was a rich oasis.
Narrated By 'Aisha: When Khaibar was conquered, we said, "Now we will eat our fill of dates!" [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 5, Book 59, Hadith #547]
Narrated By Ibn Umar: We did not eat our fill except after we had conquered Khaibar. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 5, Book 59, Hadith #548]
- Wealth fell into the hands of the Prophet after conquering Khaibar.
- He now had money to conquer the whole of the Arabian Peninsula.
- Wealth fell into the hands of the Prophet beyond his imagination.
- This money was used to conquer Makkah in 8 AH and the rest of the Arabian Peninsula.
- Mosul and Nineveh, on the 9th of June 2014, fell into the hands of the mujahideen of ISIS.
ISIS parades through Mosul
Islamic State convoys parading through Mosul
People celebrate the defeat of al-Maliki's forces in Mosul city
Celebration in Mosul (12 June 2014)
- Today, ISIS are sitting on 25 billion barrels of oil.
- The ghanima from the bank was 480 million US dollars.
- The taghoot say ISIS is the richest terrorist group in the world after the conquest of Mosul.
ISIS fighters on top of a humvee in Mosul (12 June 2014)
Brand new U.S. humvees captured as war booty in Mosul
Brand new U.S. chopper captured as war booty in Mosul
U.S. made 155mm M198 howitzer paraded by ISIS in the streets of Mosul
- The conquest of Mosul is a carbon copy of the conquest of Khaibar because Khaibar was rich and Mosul was rich.
- ISIS even has drones.
- They are now using their ghanima to take over the whole of Iraq and Syria.
- Both the conquest of Khaibar and Mosul brought about money to finance the jihad to conquer more land.
- This is why we call this chapter history repeats itself.
- One day Umar (RA) saw some Muslims planting.
- He became upset; he said they are supposed to be soldiers.
- Leave the farming to the people of the book.
- You can't plant enough corn to earn half a billion dollars in one day.
- The best way to earn your money is through jihad not farming.
- So what the mujahideen did in Mosul is an example of that.
- In one day the mujahideen conquered a land which has 25 billion barrels of oil; that's a lot of money.
- If you're a farmer planting corn, how can you earn that much?
- This is why the Prophet said his livelihood is under the shade of his spear.
Ibn Umar narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "I was sent by the sword from now until Judgment Day, until Allah Alone is worshipped with no partners, and my livelihood is in the shadow of my spear, and humiliation and submission are on those who disobey me and whoever imitates a people is one of them" [Musnad Ahmad (2/50) No. 5115, Shu'ab al-Eman al-Bayhaqi (2/417) No. 1154, Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah (4/212) No. 19401]
- Nouri al Maliki is asking the Americans to help him.
- Nouri al Malikis is crying out.
- He's asking the Americans for help.
- ISIS kills Shiites like flies.
- Al Qaeda has some mercy in their hearts.
- We are not going to bash Al Qaeda or look down on them.
- ISIS has taken the front seat now.
- America is bankrupt.
- They don't have enough money for another war.
And every nation has its appointed term; when their term is reached, neither can they delay it nor can they advance it an hour (or a moment). (Al-A'raf 7:34)
- Every empire crumbles the moment they pick on Islam.
- Because when they pick on Islam they declare war on Allah (SWT).
- So what is the alternative since America is bankrupt?
- They are going to use Iranian ground troops to invade Iraq to save Nouri Al Maliki.
- And they are going to use American drones to strike the mujahideen.
- So there's going to be a mut’ah marriage between Iran and America.
LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
- It is kufr to despair.
- So no Muslim is allowed to despair.
- Light at the end of the tunnel means the khilafah is going to come back.
Al-Nu’man b. Bashir, who said: “We were sitting in the masjid of the Messenger of Allah (SAW), and Bashir was a man who did not speak much, so Abu Tha’labah Al-Khashnee came and said: ‘Oh, Bashir bin Sa’ad, have you memorized the words of the Messenger of Allah (SAW) regarding the rulers?’ Huthayfah replied, ‘I have memorized his words’. So Abu Tha’labah sat down and Huthayfah said, ‘The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "There shall be Prophethood (nubuwwa) among you for as long as Allah wishes it to be among you. Then it shall be lifted up when Allah wishes to lift it up. Then there shall be successorship (khilâfa) on the pattern (minhâj) of Prophet ship for as long as Allah wishes it to be. Then it shall be lifted up when Allah wishes to lift it up. Then there shall be a trying kingship (mulkan 'âddan) for as long as Allah wishes it to be. Then it shall be lifted up when Allah wishes to lift it up. Then there shall be a tyrannical kingship (mulkan jabriyyatan) for as long as Allah wishes it to be. Then it shall be lifted up when Allah wishes to lift it up. Then there shall be successorship on the pattern of Prophet ship." [Musnad Ahmad (4/273) No. 18430 with a sound chain and as indicated by al-Haythami in 'Majma al-Zawaid' (5/341) No. 8960]
- We are living in the period of tyrannical kings.
- After tyrannical kings disappear, we will have khilafah.
- What we are seeing happening in Iraq is the khilafah coming back.
- It is because of this hadith we call today's topic the empire strikes back.
- And we say you, the infidels, plot and Allah plans and Allah is the best of planners.
- We say, we ask Allah to forgive Abu Qatadah and Abu Muhammad al Maqdisi IF they called ISIS khawaarij.
- First of all, you don't know if they said it.
- Shaikhs make mistakes too.
- Imran Hussain called the jihad in Syria a Yankee jihad.
- ISIS kills Shiites because the Shiites have a track record of taking sides with Christians and Jews to kill Sunnis.
- Ibn Hazm said Shiites are not even Muslims.
Ibn Hazm — "Shia are not even Muslims", when Christians debating him brought a Shia book as reference See al-Millal wa al-Nahl الفصل في الملل والنحل 2/213
