A Question for Hizb-ut-Tahrir

There's one thing that I don't understand about the method of Hizb-ut-Tahrir and that is the strikes and protests that they are doing! Can anyone please explain it to me and prove it through the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (S)?

Assalam wa alaikum

Regarding your question:

1) There is a distinction between the method (tareeqa) and style (usloob). The method is a shariah rule which is fixed and is based upon the Shariah evidences. The style is amn action you undertake as part of achieving the method, however it is directly fixed by the shariah text i.e. it falls in the area of permissibility (mubah) for you to decide upon the best style. For example part of the method of the Prophet (saw) to establish Dar al-Islam was intellectual and political struggle there is clear textual evidences from the Quran and Sunnah to prove this. In order to achieve this he used various styles and means which we are not obliged to follow i.e. there is no specific evidence indicating that we must emulate them however they fall in the area of permissibility such as holding a banquet, going on the mountain and calling the people, standing near the ka'ba and reciting the Quran aloud, etc.

2) It is clearly permissible to use the style of public demonstrations. The Prophet (saw) himself together with his companions held a public demonstration when they proclaimed the message of Islam in a challenging manner to the Quraysh. The narration is well known where one row of the Muslims was headed by Hamza (ra) and the other by Umar bin al-Khattab (ra).

Salam!

Dear Brother Imad,
Salam Alaikum,

A demonstration is a way to wrangle upon masses what ALLAH has sent down and what we've perceived. It can also be considered as a show of power. As far as Hizb methodology is concerned, there fashion has been so aggressive that the authorities in Pakistan had to put a ban on them. Tanzeem-e-Islami has adopted so far an absolute non-violant agitative fashion in this regard.

Imad-ud-din Saqib said...

You are right that they were banned but it was only due to baseless reasons and the proof of it is that when they were taken to court the accusers did not show up.

Ahmad Bilal said...

Dear brother,

No revolution has come without sacrificing blood. Not even the revolution brought by the Prophet PBUH himself even though he was a mercy upon all humanity.

We strongly believe and we are 101%sure that revolution can never come without sacrificing your blood. When the Prophet PBUH couldn't even escape from the sacrifices then how could you do that handsomely.

The Prophet (S) did not go to war to capture Madinah.
