Political Vision of Jihad Movement; Synergism Toward Khilafah Islamiyah

02 March 2011

By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahidun

Can Muslims work together in synergy towards the establishment of the Khilafah Islamiyah? The answer is yes, especially if the Mujahideen and Da'ie (workers of da'wah) have a clear political vision so that they can manage a victory that comes from Allah SWT to then apply the Islamic Shari'ah in kafah (comprehensiveness) in the framework of a Khilafah state. Allahu Akbar!

Political Vision & the Synergism of the Ummah

Alhamdulillah, the Talkshow, Visi Politik Gerakan Jihad (Political Vision Of Jihad Movement) organized by Sharia4Indonesia was running smoothly and successfully. Ba'da Solatul Jum'at (14/1/2011), dozens of people were seen sitting on the ground floor of Masjid Al Bayyinah located in Setia Budi area. Jihad videos were seen being played by the organizing committees to await the commencement of the event.

After the recital of the holy verses of the Qur'an, precisely at 13.30 local time, the event which was hosted by moderator M Ridho from the Asosiasi Pebisnis Muslim (Muslim Businessmen Association) who is also active in the FUI (Islamic Ummah Forum), Bogor, commenced. The moderator gave the first opportunity to Ustadz Luqman Hakim to present his views. Ustadz Luqman in this case acted on behalf of the publisher, Aqwam, and at the same trime as an observer of jihad. According to Ustadz Luqman, Muslims today are experiencing a ‘global war'. The Islamic ummah are currently being fought by the entire mushrikeen, therefore the Muslims must be aware and also have to fight them (mushrikeen), there is no other choice.

In the opportunity, Ustadz Luqman also emphasized the importance of politics for Mujahids. Of course what was meant by politics here is not the odious politics of democracy, but Islamic politics based on the Qur'an and Sunnah. Politics is a tool for the Muslims to able them to apply the Islamic Shari'ah, with da'wah and jihad of course.

On the second slot, Ustadz M Fachry as the Analyst of Jihad from Ar-Rahmah Media, imparted the importance of politics and the media in supporting the global jihad. He explained several important points as the essence of the book, "Political Vision Of Jihad Movement", which is the works of the two prominent Sheikhs, namely Sheikh Hazim Al-Madani and Sheikh Abu Mush'ab As-Suri.

Also delivered by Ustadz M Fachry was the importance of the support from the ummah for the struggle to establish the Islamic Shari'ah, and it could be concluded from the book that the Mujahideen are well aware of the the importance of the support from the ummah for their struggle. Ustadz M Fachry took the Afghan Mujahideen as an example, who managed to escape from the Bagram prison in Afghanistan and were assisted by the Islamic ummah who lived there in smoothening and falicitating their escape. For that, we need to continually make Islamic ummah understand about the da'wah and jihad today.

The last slot was filled in by Sharia4Indonesia represented by Ustadz Abu Sofiyah. He expressed the need and importance of a synergy among the components of the Islamic ummah, whether it be the Da'ie or Mujahideen in establishing the Islamic Shari'ah. He likened the synergy to a Formula One racetrack, whereby during a pause or break, each operator will perform each of their duties, such as changing tires, wiping the windshield, refueling, etc. All parties are mutually in synergy and not blaming each other, until the driver is ready to compete and be a winner.

The Longing for the Establishment of Shari'ah & Khilafah Islamiyah

In the question and answer session, one participant from the Majelis Mujahidin, Abu Zahrah asked about several issues. One of them is about the arena of jihad, whether it will come naturally or it must be prepared. The second questioner was a brother from LIPIA, who asked about the kind of definition and political vision that must be possessed by the Mujahideen.

The questions from the participants were answered by turns until they were all thoroughly answered. Ustadz Luqman cited a verse that when jihad is already in front of the eyes then we must not flee from it, although we also do not ask to hasten its arrival.

Ustadz Abu Shofiyah explained that jihad is a necessity and certainty. What is more important, according to him, is providing a comprehensive saheeh understanding to the ummah about jihad. This is one of the reasons that the Sharia4Indonesia was devised, it is for that function, he added.

Meanwhile, Ustadz M Fachry quoted the words of Sheikh Abdullah Azzam in his book "Jihad To Defend The Land Of The Muslims" that the ruling for jihad is already fardhu ‘ain at this time that we all are obliged to carry it out according to our ability, including i'dad in it.

While for the political understandings meant by the speaker it is agreed that politics here is Siyasah Shar'iyyah or Islamic politics, which of course is different from secular politics which are applied today. The secular politics justifies any means to achieve goals, while the Islamic politics always underlies the Qur'an and Sunnah as the foundation.

There was a suggestion at the end of the session, to set up a center of study or research which specifically discusses and develops strategic plans of the ummah in building synergy for the sake of the establishment of the Islamic Shari'ah and Khilafah Islamiyah. If the kafir and secular people could have many research institutions to destroy Islam, then why cant't the Islamic ummah?

It was visible among the participants and also the speakers, the longing for the establishment of Islamic Shari'ah, as well as the Khilafah Islamiyah. They all also agreed to immediately establish synergy between them, mapping the potential and strength of each of the tandzhim to then work together to establish the Islamic Shari'ah and restore the glory of Khilafah Islamiyah, for the sake of izharudeen and the prevalence of the rahmah (mercy) of Islam to all corners of the world.

Insha Allah!
