Transcript of above Video:
There is a group amongst us (here in the UK) called Hizb-ut-Tahreer. They call for the Islamic Khilaafah and they speak against the scholars. How can they be refuted and what is the way towards achieving the proper Islamic Khilaafah?
Answer by Imam Muqbil (rahimahullaah) :
All praise be to Allaah and may the peace and blessings be on our Prophet Muhummed, His Family, Companions, and whom succeeds them. I testify that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allaah – alone and with no partner. And I testify that Muhummed is His slave and Messenger. To proceed:
With regard to the issue of partisanship, the people are divided into two parties: The party of Ar-Rahmaan (Allaah) and the party of ash-Shaytaan (the Devil).
So the party of ar-Rahmaan – it is not permissible for them to be divided amongst themselves.
Allaah, the Most High, says: “Verily those who divide their Religion and break up into sects, you have no concern with them in the least.” [Surah Al-An'aam: 159]
And the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The Jews split up into seventy-one or seventy-two sects. And the Christians split up into seventy-one or seventy-two sects. And my ummah will split up into seventy-three sects.”
This hadeeth was reported by Abu Dawood from the narration of Abu Hurairah (radyAllaahu ‘anhu). Abu Dawood reported a similar hadeeth from Mu’awiyah (radyAllaahu ‘anhu) and in it there occurs:
“All of them (these sects) will be in the Hellfire, except one sect.” They asked: “Who is it O Messenger of Allaah?” He (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The Jamaa’ah.”
Then he said: “And there will indeed come a people of whom vain desires will move them just as rabies moves around the one it affects.”
And what the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) warned us of has already come to pass, for the desires have become many and the parties have multiplied.
And Allaah, the Lord of Glory, says in His Noble Book: “And hold on tightly to the Rope of Allaah, all of you, and be not divided.” [Surah Aali 'Imraan: 103]
The Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “You will indeed follow the ways of those who came before you, step by step, even if they were to enter the hole of a lizard you would enter into it (after them).”
We said: “O Messenger of Allaah, do you mean the Jews and the Christians?” He (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Who else?”
And the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The beleiver with respect to another beleiver is like a building, each part supports the other.”
As for these parties, then they chase each other away and they attack one another.In fact, if one were to say: “These splitting into parties has actualized what the enemies of Islaam have desired from splitting up the ummah,dividing its ranks and weaking its strength” he would be speaking truthfully.
Therefore, (I say that) Hizb-ut-Tahreer is a hizb (party) that is wicked. Perhaps you think this is a grave statement since I am the first one to say such a thing, but it is proper that I introduce such a statement.So I say again, it is indeed a wicked party, which began in Jordan. They split away from the Ikhwaan al-Muslimoon, who wrote to them requesting them to return but they refused to go back to them. Their leader was Taqee-ud-Deen an-Nubhaanee.
Concerning the matters related to Creed, they say: “Nothing should be accepted except for that which conforms to the intellect.” So if there is found some hearing (of a report), then this hearing must be eliminated.That is why they reject the Punishment in the Grave and they reject that the Dajjaal will be brought forth. Likewise they have no concern for teaching good etiquettes nor with spreading knowledge. So it is a party that cultivates its followers upon seeking after and studying politics, which opposes the Religion.
It was once said to the leader of this group: “Why don’t we see any schools for the memorization of the Qur’aan in your party?” So he responded: “I do not want to produce dervishes!”
Naa’am my brothers by Allaah. They rely on politics only, and they do not rely on knowledge and etiquettes, nor on the heart-softening narrations.
And with regard to issues of Fiqh, they make it permissible for a man to shake hands with a woman that is not related to him.
And they say that it is permissible for a woman to be a leader and that she can sit in a governing council (majlis ash-shuraa).
In fact they even allow a disbeliever to be in the governing council and that he can be given general leadership positions ! So it is a deviant group that has surpassed the extent of deviance.
And I am surprised at those who join and adhere to this party.
We even have them in Yemen. Hizb al Tahrir – some of them are the party of the treacherous.
My brothers ! are they the party of liberation or the party of the treacherous ?
Naa’am my brothers, they label themselves as being the party of liberation, and in fact they are the party of the treacherous.
So I do not only advise every brother to stay far away from this group, but rather also to warn against it. It is an onligation upon us to warn against them.
And if it were not that we make excuses for them, that they misinterpret the texts, we would have said that they were disbelievers.
Because they reject the Punishment in the Grave and they reject the coming of the Maseeh ad-Dajjaal.
And their leader says that he does not like to teach his students the Qur’aan so that they will not come out as dervishes.

Translated by Abdulilah Lahmami (hafidhahullaah)
Imam Muhammad bin Seereen (tabi’ee d.110H) said:
“Verily this religion is your knowledge, so look to see who you take your religion from”
Every Muslim, male and female is obligated to worship Allah based upon the Qur’an and Sunnah upon the understanding of the Salaf (the righteous predecessors). The’Aqeedah (belief), the call to Tawheed, the forbiddance of Shirk and Innovations and all matters that refer to our noble and complete religion of Islam, must be in accordance with the legislated understanding. Whosoever from the scholars is upon that path, then we take from them. However, whoever opposes that path, and chooses the innovated ways and calls to other than what the Messenger called to, then we do not take from them, but rather we warn against them, so that the Muslims do not become misguided. This lecture is an advice to any follower or member of Hizb ut-Tahreer (a political organisation, that claims to call to Khilaafah). However, the reality is that from the foundations, their whole agenda and call is innovated and false, because their founder—Taqi ud-Deen Nabahaani (1909 to 1977 CE) was not following the understanding of the righteous Salaf. From his very own books, you will hear about his deviation from the Salaf in ‘Aqeedah and Manhaj. Not only do they have a distorted understanding of the Qur’an and Sunnah, they even go so far as relying on intellect over clear text that has been revealed by Allah.

Scholar: Shaykh Muhammad bin ´Abdillâh al-Imâm
Translation & video: http://aFatwa.com
Question: Can one say that the members of al-Qâ’idah are Khawârij?
Shaykh Muhammad al-Imâm: Yes. They are Khawârij. al-Ikhwân al-Muslimûn are Khawârij. Hizb-ut-Tahrîr are Khawârij. Surûriyyah are Khawârij. Surûriyyûn have rebelled in Algeria and other countries.
Scholar: ´Allâmah Sâlih bin Fawzân al-Fawzân
Translation & video: http://aFatwa.com
Question: Is there any difference between Khawârij and rebels?
Shaykh al-Fawzân: Yes. The rebels do not make Takfîr upon the Muslims. They revolt because they claim to order the good and forbid the evil. They do not make Takfîr. As for the Khawârij, they make Takfîr upon the Muslims.
Taqi al-Din al-Nabahani – a former Ba’thist Nationalist – set up a political party (Hizb al-Tahrir) whose objectives, methodologies and structures were strongly influenced by that background. He is one of numerous 20th century thinkers – amongst them Hasan al-Bannaa, Abu A’la Mawdudi and Sayyid Qutb – who came under the influence of the prevailing secular ideologies of the time (the pursuit of “social justice” through revolutions) in formulating methodologies of reform amongst Muslims. Like Banna, Mawdudi and Qutb, al-Nabahani has a cult-like following across the world. He had a mixture of an Ash’ari, Mu’tazili belief indicating he was carrying that vile poison of ilm al-kalaam which played an instrumental role in splitting and dividing the Ummah from the second century of Islam onwards.

Shaykh Muhammad Nasir ud-Deen al-Albaanee clarifies the deviation of Hizb ut-Tahrir and the other sects who deviate away from the Methodology of the Salaf us-Saalih i.e. Salafiyyah (Qur’aan and Sunnah upon the understanding of the righteous predecessors). The Shaykh explains many sects/groups claim to follow the Qur’aan and Sunnah, however the only sect i.e. the saved sect are the ones who follow the salaf us-saalih in their understanding of the Qur’aan and Sunnah.
