Ameer of Hizb ut Tahrir’s message to the Rulers of Iran
Bismillahi Al-Rahman AlRaheem
The Rulers of Iran and Khilafah
We remind the rulers of Iran, even though they do not believe that the Khilafah is the obligation of their Lord, and whose mind, when it is mentioned, conjures up an unjust Khaleefah here or there, we remind them that the Khilafah which the workers work to establish it, is the Khilafah on the method of the Prophethood. The Khilafah, which was Abu Bakr, Omar, Othman and Ali, may Allah be pleased with them, were its leaders and its soldiers. So if the rulers of Iran stand in its face, then they will violate the Seerah (biography) of Ali (may Allah be pleased with him), who pledged Bayah (allegiance) to the three Khulafaa who preceded him, and was their assistant and was honest and sincere with them. So follow his Seerah, and do not ban the Khilafah by standing in its face in Al-Sham or in any other place. If you fail to support the workers for Khilafah, then at least not stand in their face… The best outcome is for the pious.
