WHAT IS KHILAAFAT? WHAT IS DEMOCRACY?

WHAT IS KHILAAFAT?

KHILAAFAT IS THE ADMINISTRATION OF DIVINE LAW BY A KHALIFAH (VICEGERENT).

THE KHALIFAH REPRESENTS ALLAH AZZA WA JAL VIA THE AGENCY OF RASULULLAH (SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WASALLAM).

“AND REMEMBER WHEN YOUR RABB SAID TO THE MALAAIKAH:

VERILY, I SHALL ESTABLISH ON EARTH A KHALIFAH.”

(BAQARAH, AAYAT 30)

“O DAAWOOD! VERILY, WE HAVE MADE YOU A

KHALIFAH ON EARTH.”

(SWAAD, AAYAT 26)

WHAT IS DEMOCRACY?

DEMOCRACY IS THE RULE OF A PARLIAMENT OF A HUNDRED BABOONS AND DONKEYS APPOINTED TO RULE BY IGNORAMUSES, ROBBERS, DEBAUCHERS, RAPISTS, DRUG-ADDICTS AND CRIMINALS OF A VARIETY OF HUES.

THE DIVINE SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT

“…When We empower them on earth (to rule), they (the Mu’mineen)

establish Salaat, pay Zakaat, command righteousness, and

prohibit evil.

(Surah Hajj, aayat 41)

   The system of government which Allah Ta’ala has ordained for Muslims long before creation of man is called.....

Khilaafat (Vicegerency). In this system Muslim Man has been divinely appointed the Vicegerent (Representative) of Allah Azza Wa Jal. Man is termed the Vicegerent or the Khalifah, the Representative of Allah Azza Wa Jal on earth, for his obligation is the administration of Allah’s Law on earth to the servants of Allah Ta’ala.

 

   Announcing the appointment of His Vicegerent, Allah Azza Wa Jal, declared to His Angels: “Verily, I shall create on earth a Khalifah.” Allah’s first Khalifah on earth was Hadhrat Aadam (alayhis salaam). Subsequently all those who had administered Allah’s Law on earth were His Khulafa (plural of Khalifah). In relation to the Ummah of Islam, the first four Khulafa via the agency of being Rasulullah’s representatives, were the Khulafa of Allah Ta’ala.

   The system of administration of Allah’s Law on earth is called Khilaafat. True and perfect Khilaafat relative to this Ummah consists of only the Khilaafat of the first Four Khulafa-e-Raashideen, and of the Khilaafat of Hadhrat Umar Bin Abdul Azeez (rahmatullah alayh) who is known as Umar The Second. Whilst the Bani Umayyah, Abbaasi (Abbaside) and Uthmaani (Ottoman) Khilaafats were Islamic systems of rule, they were mere shadows of the real Khilaafat of the aforementioned Five Khulafa.

   Thus, when Muslims speak of Khilaafat, the only model which is intended and which comes to mind is the Khilaafat of the Khulafa-e-Raashideen. It is not the khilaafat of the Bani Umayya nor Abbaasi reign nor the rule of the Ottomans despite the validity of their Khilaafat. Although in theory the Shariah was the law of these three Khilaafats, the Shariah and the Sunnah did not dominate government as it had during the Khilaafat of the Khulafa-e-Raashideen. And in the latter days of the Ottoman empire the Shariah was being incrementally displaced and substituted by a policy of kufrization.

   When Islam speaks about khilaafat, the reference is to the Khilaafat of the Khulafa-e-Raashideen, not to the khilaafat of Bani Umayyah nor the khilaafat of Banu Abbaas nor to the Ottoman khilaafat. The only model for true Muslims is the Sunnah, and the only Khilaafat which governed according to the Sunnah was the Khilaafat of the Khulafa-e-Raashideen, and obedience to these Khulafa is a Fardh command of Islam. In this regard Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Make incumbent on you my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the Khulafa-e-Raashideen.” The Ottoman Empire or the system of law and governance of the Ottoman Empire is not to be equated to the Sunnah or to the Khilaafat of the Khulafa-e-Raashideen.
