Q.:-Salam Alakum. What I understand from your lectures is that you believe the method to re-establish Khilafah is through Jihad. Can you respond to this?
Raising the awareness of the Ummah of the importance of Khilafa, educating the Muslims on politics, and searching for nusrah
Regarding the method of HT which you specifically referred to in your question, I first came in contact with HT members from Jordan in the early nineties and found them to be argumentative but well-mannered and polite. My first understanding of the Hizb was from them and they were core members of the group. HT has played an important role in raising the awareness of the Ummah to the matter of Khilafa. They also played a role in countering the false idea that politics and political awareness have nothing to do with Islam.
However the method of HT to re-establish Khilafa is simply not going to work. To wait for nusrah until it arrives is to wait for a miracle. Tribes or military generals that are supposed to give nusrah and establish the religion of Allah are not going to be won over simply by discussions. They will only be won over when they see a group of believers living by what they say and sacrifice all that they own for the sake of Allah. This is what will inspire others to join. The two success stories of powerful people giving nusrah to the religion are some of the former officers of the Iraqi baath regime who joined the insurgency and the former president of Chechnya, Dudayev, who was a high ranking officer in the Soviet army. Both these successful examples of nusra were not won over through debates, demonstrations and pamphlets but by them seeing a living example of men struggling in the path of Allah.
