Dear respected Mufti,
I have been approached by a brother who is a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir, he has also sent me a pdf copy “The methodology of Hizb ut-Tahrir for change” if you could please review it by providing me an email to submit it to.
My question is regarding their view of re-establishing Khilafah.
I provided this brother with this quran verse below but he claims that there is a hadith that goes with this verse for establishing a Khilafah. I asked him to provide me with the hadith but he says ask a scholar about establishing a Khilafah first then I will provide it.Is there any hadith that proves of establishing a Khilafah with the following verse from the Quran?
Allah grants a guarantee to those of you who believe and perform the righteous deeds that He will most certainly appoint them the successors on earth (i.e. give khilafa), just like He appointed the people prior to you as successors. He will consolidate their way of life, much to their satisfaction. He will change their present state of insecurity and fear, into one of safety and peace. They would worship Me and would not associate anyone as My partner. Whoever disbelieves after this, is certainly wicked!(Quran: 24:55)
I have told him that Allah will only bring a Khilafah when the whole ummah is doing righteous deeds and this will only happen during Imam Mehdi’s appearance, am I wrong in making this statement?
