Friday, 3rd December 2010, when visited in his cell at Bareskrim Mabes Polri (Criminal Investigation Police HQ), Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir gave his taushiah about the new year of 1432 Hijriyah. What exactly is the essence from the determination of the Hijriyah calendar by Khalifah Umar bin Khattab? The following is the excerpt from the taushiah by Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir: Umar bin Khattab established the Hijriyah year based on the event of Hijrah. It shows that the hijrah is very important. Hijrah can be interpreted in both linguistic and true sense of interpretation.

Hijrah is actually a realization from the attitude of baro'. So the most important in us discussing the 1st Muharram is that it is obligatory upon us to use the Hijriyah year and it is haraam to use the Christian (AD) year. Included in having wala' to the kafir is the usage of the Christian year, therefore it is haraam! So the Muslims must use the Hijriyah year.

Then, Rasulullah also made it a sunnah to fast on the days of ash-shura but starting from the 9th and then on the 10th and 11th (of Muharram) because if only on the 10th it is the same as emulating the manner of the Jews. The most important is that the hijrah is a realization of the baro'. For the Muslims, if they see shirk, they must free themselves of it, fight it and if not possible, yeah... do hijrah. In addition, the hijrah is to prepare for the strength just like Rasulullah doing hijrah from Makkah to Madinah. The Islamic ummah certainly need to have the force of arms, it's a must! There is no excuse!

So, why did Sayyidina Umar take up the Hijriyah year? It is to show how important hijrah is as the realization from Al-Baro'. Thus, if the Islamic ummah see munkar, if they are not able to destroy it, they must leave. Plus, the Islamic ummah must do hijrah from the country which is not an Islamic country. Such as this Indonesia, hijrah from it is a must, this is a shirk country! It is haraam to live in a shirk country! But then again we are not able to do hijrah, and if we are not able.. then yes... fight! And we must not be silent. Thus was the excerpt from the taushiah by Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir, an ulama' who have applied the concept of hijrah in the journey of his struggle. Then, it should be that the Islamic ummah is aware that hijrah is a realization from the attitude of baro' (anti-loyalty) and the attitude of baro' is a prerequisite of the ‘aqeedah of this dien, where it would not be possible for a man to be said as having iman without practicing this baro' in his life.
