Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Pakistan:
Fasting is the Shield of the Believer and Khilafah is the Shield of the Ummah!
Fasting was likened by RasulAllah (saaw) to a shield protecting each of us individually from the Fire of Jahannam. RasulAllah (saaw) said, » الصِّيَامُ جُنَّةٌ مِنَ النَّارِ كَجُنَّةِ أَحَدِكُمْ مِنَ الْقِتَالِ « "Fasting is a shield against the Fire just like the shield of anyone of you against fighting.” [Ibn Maajah]. So, this Ramadhan, we establish the Obligation (Fard) of Fasting sincerely, seeking the Reward of Allah (swt), His Forgiveness and His Mercy and averting His Wrath. However, RasulAllah (saaw) also likened the Khilafah to a shield, not for us individually, but for us as an Ummah collectively. RasulAllah (saaw) said, » إِنَّمَا الْإِمَامُ جُنَّةٌ يُقَاتَلُ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ وَيُتَّقَى بِهِ « “Indeed, the Khaleefah is a shield, from behind whom you fight and by whom you are protected.” [Muslim] So, this Ramadhan, we must ask ourselves what we are doing to establish this Obligation?
