False Caliphate: A Critical Analysis of Hizb Ut-Tahrir's Political and Creedal Views
by Wasim A Ismail (Author), AbuBilaal Yakub (Editor)
Modernity, in proportions unprecedented in the Islamic Tradition, has spawned several Political Activist Groups that have reduced their understanding of Islām to something of a political machine. They have lost the fundamental understanding that while politics is a part of the Islamic Sharī‘ah, Islām itself is not a political movement nor an ideology. We hope that the dissertation in this book gently reaches the ears of those who are adamant in establishing a modernized Islamic state, while simultaneously, perhaps unknowingly, are dismissing the very essence of the Religion, the Tawḥīd, to the back seat.
This book is a conversion and expansion of my Master's thesis. I have gathered many resources and have reviewed a good amount of the literature of Ḥizb ut-Taḥrīr. You will find direct references to the books of Ḥizb ut-Taḥrīr in this critical analysis. The objective of this book is to explain the pillars of Ḥizb ut-Taḥrīr's ideology vis-à-vis the Noble Qur’ān and the authentic Sunnah, and the statements and explanations of classical Muslim scholarship.
Once you near the end of the book, you will be given the opportunity to become oriented with the lens from which these movements and groups view the world. At that point, you will be able to decide for yourself if they are truly following the Noble Qur’ān and the authentic Sunnah.
