The reason we are doing this topic, is because there are many people casting doubts on the Khilafah
- this Khilafah has caused the hypocrites to come out the woodwork like worms
- to cast doubts
- this includes the Wicked Scholars who line-up to cast doubts on the khilafah also
- such wicked scholars are referred to by Allah (SWT) as Donkeys & Dogs

The example of those who were entrusted with the Torah and then did not take it on is like that of a donkey who carries volumes [of books]. Wretched is the example of the people who deny the signs of Allah. And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people. (Al-Jumu’ah 62:5)

And recite to them, [O Muhammad], the news of him to whom we gave [knowledge of] Our signs, but he detached himself from them; so Satan pursued him, and he became of the deviators. And if We had willed, we could have elevated him thereby, but he adhered [instead] to the earth and followed his own desire. So his example is like that of the dog: if you chase him, he pants, or if you leave him, he [still] pants. That is the example of the people who denied Our signs. So relate the stories that perhaps they will give thought. (Al-A’raf 7:175-176)

The Kuffaar like these scholars
- because they are horrified, petrified, and terrified!
- the sad thing about it is; that they make up LIES about the Khilafah
- anytime you debate with a Munafiq; they always lie their way out!

I put it to you that Allah (SWT) Has Blessed you to see one of the Prophecies of Muhammad (SAW)
- to make you witness it come to pass in front of your very eyes
- if you were blessed to witness this prophecy, you should have had tears of joy
- as opposed to jumping on the bandwagon of the munafiqeen, and insulting the Mujahideen

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 Prophetship 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 Prophetship." [Musnad Ahmad (4/273) No. 18430 with a sound chain and as indicated by al-Haythami in 'Majma al-Zawaid' (5/341) No. 8960]

- Tyranical Kingship = those who have dismantled the Shariah
- but the Prophet (SAW) stated that there will be light at the end of the tunnel
- by way of the return of Khilafah
- Yet so many 'Muslims' did not find it in themselves to say 'Al-Hamdulillah'!
- after seeing a Prophecy coming to pass!

…“And when is the Hour?” He said, “The one who is questioned does not know more about it than the one who asks.” He asked, “Then what are its Signs?” He said, “That a maid-servant will beget her mistress and that you see barefooted, naked-bodied, helpless shepherds construct tall buildings.”… [al-Bukhari (4777) and Muslim (8)]

- Ironic how the above hadith (about tall buildings) triggers Muslims to say 'Al-Hamdulillah'..


1. The Caliph has Muslim Land to establish the Dawla (state)
- it CANNOT be established on the land of the infidels

2. The Caliph implements the Shariah (NOT man-made laws)

[And they are] those who, if We give them authority in the land, establish prayer and give zakah and enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong. And to Allah belongs the outcome of [all] matters. (Al-Hajj 22:41)

- Tafseer = They establish the Shariah

3. The Caliph has an army to protect the Islamic State AND to carry out Jihad until Judgement Day
- because of the following:

And fight them until there is no fitnah and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah. And if they cease - then indeed, Allah is Seeing of what they do. (Al-Anfal 8:39)

- Tafseer: Fitnah = SHIRK

Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture - [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled. (At-Tawbah 9:29)

O Prophet, fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon them. And their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the destination. (At-Tawbah 9:73)

These above Quranic verses are evidences; that Jihad has to be continuous against the infidels!
- no Caliph is allowed to hang up his sword

Narrated By Muawiya: I heard the Prophet saying, "A group of people amongst my followers will remain obedient to Allah's orders and they will not be harmed by anyone who will not help them or who will oppose them, till Allah's Order (the Last Day) comes upon them while they are still on the right path." [Sahih Bukhari (4/207) No. 3641]

Imraan ibn Hussain (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, ‘A group of people from my Ummah will continue to fight for the sake of the truth until the last of them fights the Dajjal (anti-Christ) [Sunan Abu Dawud (3/4) No. 2484, Musnad Ahmad (4/437) No. 19934, Mustadrak al-Haakim (2/81) No. 2392]

It has been narrated on the authority of Jabir bin 'Abdullah who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) say: A group of people from my Ummah will continue to fight in defence of truth and remain triumphant until the Day of Judgment. [Sahih Muslim (3/1524) No. 1923]

On the authority of Jabir the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: "...Jihad is compulsory on you until Judgment Day..." [al-Mu'jam al-Awsat al-Tabarani (5/95) No. 4775 and Abu Naeem al-Asbahani in 'Hilyatul Awliya' (3/73)]

It was narrated that Salamah bin Nufail al-Kindi said: "I was sitting with the Messenger of Allah (SAW) when a man said: 'O Messenger of Allah! The people have lost interest in horses and put down their weapons, and they say there is no Jihad, and that war has ended.' The Messenger of Allah (SAW) turned to face him and said: 'They are lying, now the fighting is to come. There will always be a group among my Ummah who will fight for the truth, for whom Allah will cause some people to deviate, and grant them provision from them, until the Hour begins and until the promise of Allah comes. Goodness is tied to the forelocks of horses until the Day of Resurrection. It has been revealed to me that I am going to die and will not stay long, and you will follow me group after group, striking one another's necks. And the place of safety for the believers is Ash-Sham.'" [Sunan al-Nasa'i (6/214) No. 3561]


-He was the Caliph, therefore Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is an imposter!

Answer 1: At no time did Mullah Omar CLAIM to be the Caliph for ALL the Ummah
- Mullah Omar is more focused on the Afghani people,
- he did not make the claim of being Amirul-Mu'mineen for All Muslims around the world


“As for the political future for the country, then I say again: we do not think about keeping power to ourselves. We do not imagine a civil war after the withdrawal of the occupation. Rather our single effort will be to make the political future of the country in the hands of the Afghans themselves far away from the interference of the superpowers of the world, and far away from the interference of neighboring countries. The effort will be purely Afghani Islamic in nature. […] After the liberation of the land, we will enjoy the victory of Allah ta’ālā with this shar’ī and national system that will strive to achieve a government free of all racist tribalism and fanaticism. The matters will be handed over to those worthy. The system will strive to preserve the unity of the nation’s land. It will also provide security, implement the Sharī’ah, and guarantee rights to all individuals of the country whether they are men or women. It will work to build the economic infrastructure of the country. It will also strengthen the social institutions of the country, provide educational facilities for all the nation in accordance with the Islamic principles and national interests. This government will work to point scientific and cultural affairs in the right direction. With the help of our proud nation, it will stand as a strong wall in the path of those who want to achieve sinister goals and ignite a civil war to divide the country. […] We will preserve good relations with every entity that respects Afghanistan as an independent Islamic state and does not have relations and dealings of an authoritarian and colonial nature with Afghanistan. I see that this is the request and hope of every free Afghani Muslim. As for dealing with the foreign forces, then I say: We will continue our political struggle as well as our military work to achieve our Islamic and national goals and hopes. We have set up a specific body within the framework of a political office to pursue this political path” [Congratulation on Eid al-Adha 1433H]

- what he's basically saying is; that he's NOT an expansionist
- he's the Amir-ul-Mu'mineen for the Afghan People
- so to say: ‘that he is the first caliph’;
- you are giving him a title that he himself did not assume!

- a Libyan brother also attested to this:-
- Atiyyatullah al-Libi also recognised Mullah Omar to be exclusive to the Afghan people


He said in an answer to a question he received: “The question concerning you and all other Muslims today is do you have to give this specific bay’ah to anyone of the Muslim leaders existing now? What is apparent is that this is not an obligation because of the absence of an imām who was given a shar’ī bay’ah of al-imāmātul-‘udhmā (the top imām). As for Amīrul-Mu’minīn Mullā ‘Umar (hafidhahullāh), if we were to hypothetically say that he had the ruling of al-imām al-a’dham (the top imām), then that would only be inside his country, district, and expanse of authority. Wallāhu a’lam. As for Sh. Usāmah (hafidhahullāh) and others like him from amongst the major leaders of the mujahidin, then their matter is even more obvious. None of them is imām a’dham (the khalīfah or top imām)” [Ajwibat Liqā’ Muntadayāt Shabakat al-Hisbah – Answers from the Interview with al-Hisbah Network Forums]

- so why they say to you: ‘What about Mullah Omar?’
- always bring them the above statement
- how do you refute them when they say: ‘what about Mullah Umar?’
- you say Mullah Umar is not from Quraish

Narrated by Ibn Umar: the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said, "This matter (caliphate) will remain with the Quraish even if only two of them were still existing." [al-Bukhari (3501) and Muslim (1820)]

I have heard the Messenger of Allah (SAW) saying: “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 (9/62) No. 7139]

Mullah Umar is not from Quraish; so it is not possible for him to be the caliph
- because the ummah will not receive his caliphate with acceptance
- the other reason why he can't be the caliph is because he's a ghost figure
- we don't know if he's alive and we don't know what he looks like
- you cannot give your bay'ah to a ghost figure
- we do not even know what his aqeedah is
- giving your bay'ah to a ghost is not valid

- The mujahideen of Al-Qaeda all over the world have given their bay'ah to Ayman al-Zawahiri”

Answer 2: You refute them by saying Ayman al-Zawahiri does not fulfil the conditions of a caliph
- he's not from Quraish
- he's not a scholar and has aqeedah issues
- he has issues with al-wala wal-bara
- e.g. when Abu Mus’ab al-Zarqawi was killing the shiites because they were pagans,
- Ayman al-Zawahiri reprimanded and rebuked him
- he thinks the shiites are our brothers

(D) The collision between any state based on the model of prophecy with the Shia is a matter that will happen sooner or later. This is the judgment of history, and these are the fruits to be expected from the rejectionist Shia sect and their opinion of the Sunnis. These are clear, well-known matters to anyone with a knowledge of history, the ideologies, and the politics of states.
 Indeed, questions will circulate among mujahedeen circles and their opinion makers about the correctness of this conflict with the Shia at this time. Is it something that is unavoidable? Or, is it something can be put off until the force of the mujahed movement in Iraq gets stronger? And if the attacks on Shia leaders were necessary to put a stop to their plans, then why were there attacks on ordinary Shia? Won't this lead to reinforcing false ideas in their minds, even as it is incumbent on us to preach the call of Islam to them and explain and communicate to guide them to the truth? And can the mujahedeen kill all of the Shia in Iraq? Has any Islamic state in history ever tried that? And why kill ordinary Shia considering that they are forgiven because of their ignorance? And what loss will befall us if we did not attack the Shia? And do the brothers forget that we have more than one hundred prisoners - many of whom are from the leadership who are wanted in their countries - in the custody of the Iranians? And even if we attack the Shia out of necessity, then why do you announce this matter and make it public, which compels the Iranians to take counter measures?

Imam Ahmad says - he was asked about who had cursed Abu Bakr, 'Umar, and 'A'isha, (RA) - "I do not see him within Islam." Imam Malik says, "He who curses the Companions of the Prophet (SAW), has no share or part in Islam." [As-Sunnah Abu Bakr al-Khallal (3/493) No. 779]

Al-Faryabi says, "I do not see the Shi`a except as atheists." [Sharh usul i'tiqad ahl al-Sunnah wa-al-jama'ah al-Lalika'i (8/1544-1545) No. 2812]

And when Ibn Hazm brought evidence and proofs against the Jews and Christians for distorting the Torah and the Gospel, they found no retort except to say that the Shi'a among them spoke of distortions to the Qur'an. He said, God's mercy! When they speak of the claim of the Shi'a that substitution has occurred, the Shi'a are not Muslims. They are a sect that follows the path of the Jews and Christians in lying and infidelity." [al-Fasl fi al-Milal wal-ahwah wal-Nihal Ibn Hazm (2/65)]

Ibn Taymiyyah said, "With this, it becomes clear that they are more evil than the sectarians and more deserving of being fought than the Kharijis. This is the reason for the general opinion that circulates that the Shi'a are people of heresy. The populace spreads around that Shi'i is the opposite of Sunni because they show resistance to the sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (SAW), and to the Laws of Islam. [Majmu'a al-Fatawa (28/482)]

And he said, "If the sunnah and ijma' are in agreement that -- if [the spirit of] the Muslim attacker could [only] come out by killing, then he should be killed, even if the property that he took was [but] a fraction of a dinar --how could it be with regard to fighting those who deviate from the Laws of Islam and fight Allah and His Messenger?" [Majmu'a al-Fatawa (28/540-541)]

- he doesn't practise kufr bit taghoot (rejecting the taghoot)
- he doesn't make bara from the democrats,
- he made dua for Mursi
- he thinks the democrats are our brothers and they are people of qibla
- he thinks the rafida are our brothers;
- even though they make takfeer on the Sahabahs and say the Qur'an is corrupted
- so Ayman al-Zawahiri has aqeedah issues that needs to be sorted out
- he has the personality because he did jihad, but that's not enough


Answer 3: You say to them; it is haraam to take political fatwas from Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi and Abu Qatada because they are in prison
- they'll say: ‘I'm sorry Shaikh Faisal, you don't know fiqh-ul-waqi; they are out of prison.’
- I put it to you, the country Jordan itself is one of the worst countries in the world for human rights violations
- they are so brutal with their tyranny even the UK government is embarrassed by them
- because of their human rights violations
- therefore Jordan itself is a prison
- before they sent back Abu Qatada, the Jordanians had to promise the UK government
- that they are going to relinquish their culture of torture

2. SHOULD KNOW FIQHUL-WAAQI (knowledge of current events on the ground)

Abu Qatada and Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi don't fulfil the third condition
- because Jordan itself is a prison

Jordan is an agent of the Israeli Mossad
- Ishaq Rabin slaughtered thousands of Muslims
- yet King Hussain of Jordan cried at his funeral
- Benjamin Netanyahu went to the funeral of King Hussain and said we have lost our king
- the leaders of Jordan are apostates
- they have given their wala to Zionism
- so it is not permissible to take political fatwas about the dawlah from Abu Qatada and Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi

The dawlah said they are coming for Jordan next
- the reason why they said they are coming for Jordan
- is because the way to Israel to liberate masjid al-Aqsa - is through Jordan

These two Shaikhs, their similitude is like the scholar who lived in the time of the wicked king
- Allah spoke about the wicked king in Surah Burooj
- this scholar realised if he should speak against the hierarchy; he will be incarcerated or killed
- so he separated himself and lived in seclusion away from the hierarchy
- because Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi and Abu Qatada are living in an evil country,
- it would have been appropriate for them to take the stance of the scholar mentioned in Surah Burooj

By the sky containing great stars And [by] the promised Day And [by] the witness and what is witnessed, Cursed were the companions of the trench [Containing] the fire full of fuel, When they were sitting near it And they, to what they were doing against the believers, were witnesses. And they resented them not except because they believed in Allah, the Exalted in Might, the Praiseworthy, (Al-Buruj 85:1-8)

They should have separated themselves
- rather than passing fatwas against the mujahideen who are fighting to liberate land and man
- the only way for them to rescue their character is to make hijrah from Jordan and make public tawbah
- the tawbah of a scholar has to be public like Allah told you in: 2:159-160

Indeed, those who conceal what We sent down of clear proofs and guidance after We made it clear for the people in the Scripture - those are cursed by Allah and cursed by those who curse, Except for those who repent and correct themselves and make evident [what they concealed]. Those - I will accept their repentance, and I am the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful. (Al-Baqarah 2:159-160)

After saying all of this, not until we see a video of them speaking against the dawlah; the news of them speaking against the dawlah is doubtful

- the expression ahul-hall wal-aqd means the important people who are the decision makers

Answer 4: we say to them we will bring you the statement of Imam Nawawi:

Al-Nawawi (rh) said: With regard to bay’ah (oath of allegiance): the scholars are agreed that in order for it to be valid it is not essential for all the people or all the decision makers to give their bay’ah. Rather, if bay’ah is given by those scholars and people of virtue and status who are present, that is sufficient. It is not obligatory for each person to come to the leader and put his hand in his and give his oath of allegiance to him. Rather what is required of each individual is to submit to him and not go against him or rebel against him. [Sharh Sahih Muslim (12/77)]

If 7 scholars give their bay'ah to the caliph and the rest of the ummah don't rebel
- it is a legitimate caliphate
- based upon the above mentioned fatwa of Imam Nawawi
- those who initially gave their bay'ah to Caliph Ibrahim,
- they are the same mujahideen who participated in fighting the crusaders in Anbar province
- you think, a million people have to give their bay'ah because you think like a democrat
- these mujahideen who fought in Anbar province against the crusaders;
- are the best of the ummah, they are the cream of the crop
- they are at-taifah al-mansoora (the victorious group)
- therefore their jihad against the crusaders qualifies them to be the people of decision
- when there is fitna you take your deen from the mujahideen


Answer 5: Caliph Ibrahim has labelled the Rafida as apostates because of their ideology
- because they are labelled as apostates,
- they have the same hukm as the apostates Abu Bakr (RA) fought; who refused to pay zakah
- Abu Bakr did not take jizya from apostates
- you either come back to Islam or you die
- we take jizya from the people of the book, not from apostates



The present Quran is in an altered, corrupted and distorted form.. (Fatuhat-e-Shia, p. 129)

- by claiming the Qur'an is corrupted,
- they are accusing Allah of breaking His promise to protect the Qur'an

Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian. (Al-Hijr 15:9)

Falsehood cannot approach it from before it or from behind it; [it is] a revelation from a [Lord who is] Wise and Praiseworthy. (Fussilat 41:42)

- they make takfeer on all the sahabas except for 3;
- Miqdad ibn Aswad, Salman Al-Farisi and Abu Dharr al-Ghifari

(Imam) Abu Ja'far [as]said: The people were people of apostacy after the Prophet save three. I said (the narrator): Who are these three? He said: al-Miqdad bin al-Aswad, Abu Tharr al-Ghafari and Salmaan the Persian....and that is the meaning of His saying: 3:144. Muhammad is no more than a Messenger: many were the Messengers that passed away before him. If he died or were slain, will ye then turn back on your heels? [Rijaal al-Kash-shi: pp. 12-13. From:Ash-Shi'a WasSunnah, Ehsan Elahi Zaheer, p.49]

And [there is a share for] those who came after them, saying, "Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith and put not in our hearts [any] resentment toward those who have believed. Our Lord, indeed You are Kind and Merciful." (Al-Hashr 59:10)


The Shia believe that at the time of Mahdi’s return Imam Mahdi will resurrect Aisha (Prophet Mohammad’s wife) and execute the law of Hudud on her, for committing Zina (adultery) during her marriage. (Al-Anwar Al-Numaniyah, vol. 1, p. 161, Tafsir al-Shafi, vol. 2, p. 108, Haq al-Yaqeen, vol. 2, p. 256, Hayat al-Qulub, vol. 2, p. 611)

Indeed, those who came with falsehood are a group among you. Do not think it bad for you; rather it is good for you. For every person among them is what [punishment] he has earned from the sin, and he who took upon himself the greater portion thereof - for him is a great punishment. (An-Nur 24:11)

Even though Allah clears her name, they said: ‘we beg to differ’
- Allah called the accusation ifk (a big lie)
- this is why you can't take jizya from these people
- they are the worst of kuffaar
- because they constantly seek to veto Allah, you can't take jizya from them


The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: 'Whoever performs mut'ah once will receive the status of Hussain. Whoever performs mut'ah twice will receive the status of Hasan. Whoever performs mut'ah thrice will receive the status of Ali and who ever performs mut'ah four times will receive my status. (Tafseer Manhajul Sadiqeen: 1:356)

- you're sick, all you need to do is sleep with a different prostitute for four nights
- and you attain the same status of the Prophet?


"Certainly the Imam has a dignified station, a lofty rank, a creational caliphate, and a sovereignty and mastery over all the atoms of creation. It is definitely a basic belief in our school of thought, that our Imams occupy a station unattainable by either an angel or a major Prophet. [Khomeini: "Al-Hukumah Al-Islamiyyah" Page 52]


It is a fundamental principle of faith that our (Shia) Imams have ranks higher than the ranks of angels & God's prophets. (Khomeini's book, Hukuma Islamiya, p. 52)


“Allah often lies and does mistakes” [Usool-al-Kafi, page 328, Yacoob Kulayni, Vol. 1]

So their imams can't make mistakes, but Allah makes mistakes?!
- these are the 7 reason why Caliph Ibrahim cannot take jizya from them
- their creed is atrocious

Even so, Ayman al-Zawahiri reprimanded Abu Mus’ab al-Zarqawi for killing the Shiites?
- Ayman al-Zawahiri thinks they are our brothers and he wants to forge links with them


Answer 6: We say to you; this is a sweeping statement
- and if we can give you one scholar, it proves you are a liar

What about Abu Tamim Al-Ansari?
- that's one scholar. He's from Syria

What about Abu Malik at-Tamimi?
- he studied in my university, Muhammad ibn Saud
- he's a great scholar
- he's from Saudi

- he's from Yemen
- he wants the Islamic State to expand to the Arabian Peninsula

- by you claiming that no scholar accepted the caliphate, that's a big lie

Statement of Support for the Islamic State of Iraq & Al-Shaam By 20 International Shuyukh

What about Dr. Jazouli?
- who passed a fatwa saying; that if the kuffaar attack the dawlah,
- they are going to attack their embassies?

Dr Jazouli says if ISIS is attacked, the USA will be attacked:

I did not pass that fatwa; Dr. Jazouli passed the fatwa
- he passes fatwas I can only dream of passing
- who told you that no scholar accepted the dawlah?
- they lie and lie and the naive people believe it

Answer 7: If you say he seized the caliphate, he is classified as Imam Mutaghallib

Imam Mutaghallib means a strong man who seized the caliphate
- all the scholars of Islam agree among themselves that if a man seizes the caliphate,
- as long as he governs with Shariah and he brings stability to the ummah,
- you have to give him the bay'ah
ولو خرج رجل على الإمام، فقهره، وغلب الناس بسيفه حتى أقروا له، وأذعنوا بطاعته، وبايعوه، صار إماما يحرم قتاله، والخروج عليه؛
Ibn Qudamah said:"Whoever is appointed to the post of Khalīfah and the people agree he has become Khalīfah even if he forced himself over them by the sword until they called him Khalīfah, then it is obliged to obey him and forbidden to rise against him."[al-Mughni (8/526)]
وأما الطريق الثالث، فهو القهر والاستيلاء، فإذا مات الإمام، فتصدى للإمامة من جمع شرائطها من غير استخلاف ولا بيعة، وقهر الناس بشوكته وجنوده، انعقدت خلافته لينتظم شمل المسلمين، فإن لم يكن جامعا للشرائط بأن كان فاسقا، أو جاهلا، فوجهان، أصحهما: انعقادها لما ذكرناه، وإن كان عاصيا بفعله
Imam Al-Nawawi said,"The opinion of the A'immah regarding the Imam who takes authority by force is that it is valid, provided that he implements the Sharī'ah even if he was Fāsiq or Jāhil."[Rawdat al-Talibeen (10/46)]
Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (rh) said: If a man rebels and seizes power, the people must obey him, even if he seizes power by force and without their consent, because he has seized power. The reason for that is that if his rule is contested, it will lead to a great deal of evil, and this is what happened during the Umayyad period when some of them seized power by means of force and gained the title of caliph, and people obeyed them in obedience to the command of Allaah. End quote. Sharh al-‘Aqeedah al-Safaareeniyyah (p. 688)

- if a strong man seizes the caliphate you have to give him the bay'ah
- as long as he rules by Shariah
- Imam Ahmad said it is haraam to rebel against such a person
ومن خرج على إمام من أئمة المسلمين وقد كانوا اجتمعوا عليه وأقروا له بالخلافة بأي وجه كان بالرضا أو بالغلبة فقد شق هذا الخارج عصا المسلمين وخالف الآثار عن رسول الله فإن مات الخارج عليه مات ميتة جاهلية
Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal stated:"Whoever rises against any Imam of the Muslims, where the people have gathered together and consent to the Khilāfah by him even if it was done so by force, anyone that rises against such a person will be committing disobedience and contradict what Muhammad (SAW) taught."[al-Madkhal ila Madhab al-Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal by Abdul Qadir Badran (pg. 79)]

- what Muhammad (SAW) taught is to not rebel against the leader until 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)]


Answer: We say to them if that was the case,
- why is it they have captured a third of Syria from the Alawi forces?
- do you call Alawis mujahideen?
- you say to them; why is it they have captured a third of Iraq from the Rafida?
- do you call the rafida army, who have raped thousands of Sunni girls, mujahideen?

- Because in the time of Samuel, the Jews were oppressed by their people, so they asked him for a leader.
- Allah chose for them Saul but they rejected him.
Allah said:
Have you not thought about the group of the Children of Israel after (the time of) Musā (Moses)? When they said to a Prophet of theirs, "Appoint for us a king and we will fight in Allāh's Way." He said, "Would you then refrain from fighting, if fighting was prescribed for you?" They said, "Why should we not fight in Allāh's Way while we have been driven out of our homes and our children (families have been taken as captives)?" But when fighting was ordered for them, they turned away, all except a few of them. And Allāh is All-Aware of the Zālimûn (polytheists and wrong-doers). (Al-Baqarah 2:246)
And their Prophet (Samuel) said to them, "Indeed Allāh has appointed Talût (Saul) as a king over you." They said, "How can he be a king over us when we are better fitted than him for the kingdom, and he has not been given enough wealth." He said: "Verily, Allāh has chosen him above you and has increased him abundantly in knowledge and stature. And Allāh grants His Kingdom to whom He wills. And Allāh is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knower." (Al-Baqarah 2:247)

- They claimed Saul was too poor.
- Allah is describing the scenario in Palestine then and today Palestinians are oppressed. They are filling Israeli jails.
- The Muslims who rejected the caliphate are behaving like the Jews. In 1998 I gave a lecture on Jewish traits in the Ummah and this still persists.
- You have been oppressed since 1924, your scholars are in prison, your women are being raped but Allah has now blessed you with a caliphate and you reject it.
- This is behaving like the Jews did in the ayah above. You have become carbon copies of the Jews, by rejecting the caliph, so be careful.
- Sometimes in life, you become the very thing you hate.

- Your dua is in Surah 4:75, which many of you make on a daily basis;
And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the Cause of Allāh, and for those weak, ill­treated and oppressed among men, women, and children, whose cry is: "Our Lord! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from You one who will protect, and raise for us from You one who will help." (An-Nisa 4:75)

- The women of Homs cried out to the caliph and he sent a battalion which severed the heads of the infidels, and the ayah where Allah said to cut off the heads of the infidels is still valid.

- You can’t use Kalashnikovs to abrogate the sword.
So, when you meet (in fight Jihād in Allāh's Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks .. (Muhammad 47:4)

- People are terrified by the sword.  

- You are inciting people against amirul mu'mineen and you are looking for every single mistake and fault to say the caliphate is baatil.
- Even the 4 rightly guided caliphs made mistakes, so what makes you think caliph Ibrahim will be perfect?
- Ali r.a chopped off the hand of a man who was later found to be innocent.
- Some who reject the caliphate are scholars, They are supposed to incite people to make hijra and help the khilafa, but they use their knowledge to misguide people.
Abu Dhar said, "I was with the Prophet (SAW) one day and I heard him saying: "There is something I fear for my Ummah than the Dajjal." It was then that I became afraid, so I said: "Oh Rasool Allah! Which thing is that?" He (SAW) said; "Misguided and astray scholars." [Musnad Ahmad (5/145) No. 21334 and 21335]

- They use their knowledge to spread mischief on the earth. You should incite Muslims to join the caravan because we have many more lands to conquer.
- Allah said fight them till there is no more fitna
And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allāh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allāh Alone [in the whole of the world[]]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allāh), then certainly, Allāh is All-Seer of what they do. (Al-Anfal 8:39)

- This is because of the following hadith:
It has been reported on the authority of Nafi, that 'Abdullah b. Umar paid a visit to Abdullah b. Muti' in the days (when atrocities were perpetrated on the People Of Medina) at Harra in the time of Yazid b. Mu'awiya. Ibn Muti' said: Place a pillow for Abu 'Abd al-Rahman (family name of 'Abdullah b. 'Umar). But the latter said: I have not come to sit with you. I have come to you to tell you a tradition I heard from the Messenger of Allah (SAW). I heard him say: One who withdraws his hand from obedience (to the Amir) will find no argument (in his defence) when he stands before Allah on the Day of Judgment, and one who dies without having bound himself by an oath of allegiance (to an Amir) will die the death of one belonging to the days of Jahillyya. [Sahih Muslim, Book 20, Hadith #4562]

- They are killing the Muslims and hate the khilafa to come back, so you are dancing their tune.

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 Prophetship 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 Prophetship." [Musnad Ahmad (4/273) No. 18430 with a sound chain and as indicated by al-Haythami in 'Majma al-Zawaid' (5/341) No. 8960]

- The above mentioned hadith is the prophecy of the Prophet which has now come to pass
- You lived to witness it and now you don’t want to accept it

- But Allah has promised the shuhada paradise
Verily, Allāh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allāh's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurāt (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur'ān. And who is truer to his covenant than Allāh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success. (At-Tawbah 9:111)

- You are saying they died to bring back a caliphate that is baatil, so you need to stop rejecting it, because it has serious implications.
- I am appalled by HT rejecting what they have always shouted about.

- Allah gave you the caliphate and you are rejecting it, so the Palestinians should be the first to accept the caliphate because they are suffering.
By the (steeds) that run, with panting (breath), (Al-'Adiyat 100:1)  Striking sparks of fire (by their hooves), (Al-'Adiyat 100:2)  And scouring to the raid at dawn (Al-'Adiyat 100:3)  And raise the dust in clouds the while, (Al-'Adiyat 100:4)  Penetrating forthwith as one into the midst (of the foe); (Al-'Adiyat 100:5)  Verily! Man (disbeliever) is ungrateful to his Lord; (Al-'Adiyat 100:6) And to that fact he bears witness (by his deeds); (Al-'Adiyat 100:7) And verily, he is violent in the love of wealth. (Al-'Adiyat 100:8)

- Allah swore by the horse, that man is ungrateful.
- You are so ungrateful you reject the caliphate Allah has blessed you with.
- You should be ashamed of yourselves

- Allah has made many promises. Allah said:
Allāh has promised those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the earth, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practise their religion, that which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islām). And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided) they (believers) worship Me and do not associate anything (in worship) with Me. But whoever disbelieved after this, they are the Fāsiqûn (rebellious, disobedient to Allāh). (An-Nur 24:55)

- Allah promised the khilafah to replace the present tawagheet and He did.
- You used to live in fear of basher al-assad , but now you don’t. You don’t worry about his secret police anymore.

And obey Allāh and His Messenger, and do not dispute (with one another) lest you lose courage and your strength depart, and be patient. Surely, Allāh is with those who are As-Sābirin (the patient ones, etc.). (Al-Anfal 8:46)

- E.g. if Jabhat an Nusra don’t give their bay'ah, they will be guilty of causing disunity as Allah said in the above ayah.
- They want to form their own state in Syria, but this is wrong. Beware of being a fake mujahid or insincere.
- If Allah blessed you with knowledge of tawheed, you will see through them. The only way they can be accepted as real mujahideen is by giving their bay'ah to amirul mu'mineen and causing unity.
- You lose courage and strength through disunity, so Allah has called for unity.
And those who disbelieve are allies to one another, (and) if you (Muslims of the whole world collectively) do not do so (i.e. become allies, as one united block with one Khalifah - chief Muslim ruler for the whole Muslim world to make victorious Allāh's Religion of Islāmic Monotheism), there will be Fitnah (wars, battles, polytheism, etc.) and oppression on earth, and a great mischief and corruption (appearance of polytheism). (Al-Anfal 8:73)


- Because the caliph is going to flatten their shrines, so the first people that spoke bad about the caliphate were them on youtube.
Thawban reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, "The Hour will not be established until a tribe from my Ummah joins the polytheists and until a tribe from my Ummah worship idols." [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/499) No. 2219, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/97) No. 4252, Sunan Ibn Majah (5/97) No. 3952 and Mustadrak al-Haakim (4/496) No. 8390]

- This is because they are living comfortably in darul harb and they don’t want to make hijra, people like Hizbul Tahrir and Ikhwaan.
- They have been shouting khilafa since the beginning but they don’t really believe in it.

- People like the FSA and Jabhat al-Nusra
- Allah told you in the Qur'an they are fake jihadists
Those who lagged behind will say, when you set forth to take the spoils, "Allow us to follow you," They want to change Allāh's Words. Say: "You shall not follow us; thus Allāh has said beforehand." Then they will say: "Nay, you envy us." Nay, but they understand not except a little. (Al-Fath 48:15)
Narrated By Abu Musa: A man came to the Prophet and asked, "A man fights for war booty; another fights for fame and a third fights for showing off; which of them fights in Allah's Cause?" The Prophet said, "He who fights that Allah's Word (i.e. Islam) should be superior, fights in Allah's Cause." [al-Bukhari (123) and Muslim (1904)]
Narrated Sahl: During one of his Ghazawat, the Prophet encountered the pagans, and the two armies fought, and then each of them returned to their army camps. Amongst the (army of the) Muslims there was a man who would follow every pagan separated from the army and strike him with his sword. It was said, "O Allah's Apostle! None has fought so satisfactorily as so-and-so (namely, that brave Muslim). "The Prophet said, "He is from the dwellers of the Hell-Fire." The people said, "Who amongst us will be of the dwellers of Paradise if this (man) is from the dwellers of the Hell-Fire?" Then a man from amongst the people said, "I will follow him and accompany him in his fast and slow movements." The (brave) man got wounded, and wanting to die at once, he put the handle of his sword on the ground and its tip in between his breasts, and then threw himself over it, committing suicide. Then the man (who had watched the deceased) returned to the Prophet and said, "I testify that you are Apostle of Allah." The Prophet said, "What is this?" The man told him the whole story. The Prophet said, "A man may do what may seem to the people as the deeds of the dwellers of Paradise, but he is of the dwellers of the Hell-Fire and a man may do what may seem to the people as the deeds of the dwellers of the Hell-Fire, but he is from the dwellers of Paradise." (Bukhari Book #59, Hadith #51)

- This hadith proves that there are fake mujahideen, so don’t be naive.
- Whenever there is a jihad taking place, the CIA, MI5 and Israeli Mossad send their spies and they infiltrate the jihad.
- Nusra has been infiltrated by fake jihadis, that is why they have not given their bay’ah.
- The sincere ones have left and given their bay’ah to the caliph.
- Syria and Iraq are historically rivals, what they are doing is dangerous. They came to Islam with that rivalry.
- If Nusra is trying to establish their own caliphate, that is dangerous. This is not unity.
- The aqeedah of the fake jihadi is to make takfir on the taghoot, but not the mufti of the taghoot.
- Even Ibn Taymiyaah, who they claim to follow, made takfir on the mufti who follows tha taghoot.
A scholar who abandons what has learnt from the Quran and the Sunnah and follows a ruler who does not rule in accordance with the teaching of Allah and His Messenger is an apostate and a disbeliever who deserves punishment in this world and in the hereafter " Fatawa Ibn Taymiyyah, Volume 35/373

- They have the wrong ideology.
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (d. 728H): “Whenever a person makes halal what is haraam by consensus or makes haraam what is halal by consensus or replaces the Sharee’ah that is agreed upon by consensus, then he is a Kaffir by the agreement of the scholars of Fiqh.” – “Al-Fataawa”, Vol. 3/267

- Who is teaching them Islam?
- They can't be reading the same books they teach in university
- They are fake jihadis
A skeptic is not a munafiq. He takes the cautious stance and waits and see the attitude of the caliph. These people also existed in the time of the prophet.
Many people declared the caliphate before and they all failed, so such people want to wait and see if this caliphate survives.
Allah spoke about the skeptics in the Quran
Not equal among you are those who spent and fought before the conquering (of Makkah) (with those among you who did so later). Such are higher in degree than those who spent and fought afterwards. But to all, Allāh has promised the best (reward). And Allāh is All-Aware of what you do. (Al-Hadid 57:10)
- The sceptics waited for Makkah to fall to take their shahadah. There are skeptics in the room right now, they are going to wait and see what transpires.
- A sceptic is not a munafiq.
- Those who are not sceptics have a greater reward than the sceptic.
- We will always have sceptics
- Baaqiyah means it is here to stay, here to survive. This is their war cry, but the sceptics are saying they are not sure it is baaqiyah.

- These are the regimes who have dismantled the sharia. They are horrified and petrified.
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)]

- When these regimes sell the oil, they use the money for gambling and prostitution.
- In Egypt there is an apostate regime.
- These regimes love the kuffar and hate the Muslims.
- Pakistan is another apostate regime.
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."
Sheikh Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahab, may Allah have mercy on him, gathered ten actions that negate one's Islam (Nawaqid ul-'Ashr), the eighth one of which states: "Assisting the disbelievers (against the believers) (Mudhaharatul Mushrikeen) and supporting them against the believers (is from the actions that negates of one's faith). The Proof being the statement of Allah, "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 wrong-doers and unjust). (The Quran 5:51)."
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)

- These fatawahs from the classical scholars show that the regimes are apostate regimes and if you do not call these regimes kaafir regimes you became a kaafir yourself.
- This is called chain takfir.
- They reject the caliphate because it goes against their interest.
- The Zionists are killing Muslims in occupied Palestine.
- The crusaders are killing Muslims in Afghanistan as well as in in CAR and these kaafirs even eat the flesh of the Muslims after killing them.
- The Hindus are killing Muslims in occupied Kashmir.
- The Buddhists are killing Muslims in Burma.
- The atheists are killing Muslims in communist China.
- These kuffaar are killing Muslims because Allah said:
And they will never cease fighting you until they turn you back from your religion (Islāmic Monotheism) if they can. And whosoever of you turns back from his religion and dies as a disbeliever, then his deeds will be lost in this life and in the Hereafter, and they will be the dwellers of the Fire. They will abide therein forever." (Al-Baqarah 2:217)

- They will fight you until they make you apostates if they can.
- According to shariah law the homosexuals are to be killed so they are terrified by the caliphate.
There is a difference of opinion concerning the punishment for the one who commits sodomy. The following are the opinions that were mentioned by Imam Ash-Shawkani in "Nayl Al-Awtar" , Vol. 7/p122-124. 1) That he is killed with the sword, then burnt. This is narrated from Abu Bakr and 'Ali Ibn Abi Talib. 2) That a wall should be collapsed upon him. This was the opinion of 'Umar and 'Uthman. 3) That he should be thrown from the highest building in the city, then that should be followed up with him being pelted with rocks. This was the opinion of Ibn 'Abbas.

- Even though the caliphate has got a lot of enemies, we are confident that Allah will fulfil his promise and make it a success, i.e. it will stay forever.
- The promise of Allah is in the following ayah
Allah has promised those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the earth, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practise their religion, that which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islam). And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided) they (believers) worship Me and do not associate anything (in worship) with Me. But whoever disbelieved after this, they are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (An-Nur 24:55)
The likeness of those who were entrusted with the (obligation of the) Taurat (Torah) (i.e. to obey its commandments and to practise its legal laws), but who subsequently failed in those (obligations), is as the likeness of a donkey who carries huge burdens of books (but understands nothing from them). How bad is the example (or the likeness) of people who deny the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allah. And Allah guides not the people who are Zalimun (polytheists, wrong-doers, disbelievers, etc.). (Al-Jumu'ah 62:5)
And recite (O Muhammad SAW) to them the story of him to whom We gave Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), but he threw them away, so Shaitan (Satan) followed him up, and he became of those who went astray. And had We willed, We would surely have elevated him therewith but he clung to the earth and followed his own vain desire. So his description is the description of a dog: if you drive him away, he lolls his tongue out, or if you leave him alone, he (still) lolls his tongue out. Such is the description of the people who reject Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). So relate the stories, perhaps they may reflect. (Al-A'raf 7:175-176)
