  • Hanbali


some introductory definitions
Some Introductory Definitions

Caliphate – a sacred Muslim state (like old Ottoman Empire).

Islamist – an adherent of radical Islamic ideology.

Jihad – Primarily “Holy War.” Also a “personal struggle.”

Kafir, kuffar – non-believers; hated by Allah & Islamists.

Salafism– only “true” Sunni Islam; militant & extremist.

Sharia – Allah’s sacred Islamic law, from Koran & Hadith.

Shiite – 10% of ummah; Caliph from Mohammed; ex.Iran.

Sufism – mystical Islam; not believed to be true Islam.

Sunni – 90% of ummah; Caliph by vote; ex. Saudi Arabia.

Terrorism – violence to civilian targets for political purposes.

Ummah – collective community of Islamic peoples worldwide.

Wahabbism – a derivative of Salafism in Saudi Arabia.


islamic hierarchy
Islamic Hierarchy

Hard Liners – radical Islamic fundamentalists; Salafists; Wahabbists; Anwar al-Awlaki; Osama bin Laden; MB.

Militant Jihadists; violence okay; Nidal Hassan; MB; Morsi (?).

Soft Jihadists – cultural jihad ok, y/n violence; MB; Morsi (?).

Believers – Y/N to violence, but not by them. Fear of militants.

MINOs – Y/N to separation of mosque & state; some mosque, some Koran; Y/N to violence; peaceful, all religions equal.

True moderates: separate mosque & state; Islam religion only; no to radicalism and jihad; ZuhdiJasser, MD in Phoenix.



A reason for being here --

Sharia at work. . .

Steps to building a Caliphate?


the caliphate
The Caliphate
  • The Caliphate is a “Sacred Muslim State.”
  • Mohammed was a prophet who became a head of state after he moved to Medina; first Caliph.
  • His examples became the model for Muslim leaders who followed him called Khalifa (in English, caliph), meaning a Muslim head of state (…) [Darwish, p. l77]


sharia and the caliphate
Sharia and the Caliphate

Sharia is Allah’s Sacred Islamic law for the Caliphate. It deals with all aspects of life, including politics, war (jihad), economics, banking, business law, contract law, marriage, divorce, child rearing and custody, sexuality, sin, crime, and social issues.

Sharia’s laws treat public & private life the same, all based on the Koran and Mohammed’s sayings and examples. Many are inhumane for control.

[Darwish, p. 4]


islamic hostility a
Islamic Hostility (a)
  • Islamic states (the Caliphate) really hate the rights, freedoms and privileges found in Western countries.
  • Much of Sharia is cruel and dysfunctional law, even for Muslims, hence, much hostility and anger builds up.
  • Islamist leaders use Jihad to diffuse that anger away from themselves, outward towards the non-Muslim world.
  • Many Islamic institutions are built around the existence and promotion of Muslim anger. A Caliphate will inflame that anger into jihad; things will only get worse.

[Darwish, p. 187]


islamic hostility b
Islamic Hostility (b)
  • Muslim countries that do not promote jihad are vulnerable to the anger turning inward.
  • If a Muslim leader abandons jihad, he is confronted with an angry population, a population that will become a major threat to the Muslim State and its leader.
  • The Arab Street is ungovernable if jihad is taken away while Sharia laws remain intact.
  • Sharia’s inhumane laws must be coupled with jihad if the pressure cooker of the Muslim State is not to explode in the face of Muslims themselves. [Darwish, p. 187]


muslim ruler obligations
Muslim Ruler Obligations
  • Muslim rulers are obligated to follow Sharia, otherwise they are left exposed to Muslim anger.
  • And, citizens are no longer required to obey him -- he must be toppled and/or assassinated. Many Muslim leaders have been named kaffir and killed for respecting and cooperating with the West on equal footing.
  • Signing a peace treaty and ending hostilities with a non-Muslim country will certainly do the job -- President Anwar Sadat of Egypt signed a peace treaty with Israel and was assassinated. [Darwish, p. 189]


al qaeda and the caliphate
Al-Qaeda and the Caliphate

The caliphate formally ended in 1924 following the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire. (Banna started MB in 1928)

Al-Qaedaseeks to re-establish the caliphate.  Bin Laden called for Muslims to establish the righteous caliphate of the ummah.

In 2005, al-Qaedasought "Phase five" -- "an Islamic state, or Caliphate.“ A Caliphate will be an existential threat to West.

Once re-established, Zawahiri, al-Qaeda leader, believes Egypt will become a rallying point for the Islamic world, leading the jihad against the U.S. and Israel.[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayman_al-Zawahiri]


the left and the caliphate
The Left and the Caliphate

The left’s anti-war worldview is years out of date regarding totalitarian nation-state ideologies such as Nazism, Fascism, and Communism.

Non-Muslim countries face a danger greater than any of the “isms” above – Islamism; an existential threat more dangerous than Communism.

Islam isn’t seeking a simple nation state – their objective is a Caliphate; a single unit extending across nations, regions and eventually the entire world. The left is blind to this threat!

[Front Page Magazine, D. Greenfield]



Selected verses from the Reliance regarding the Caliphate will be presented next.

Note – because of overlap, some material will be discussed later.

The Reliance is broken into 26 parts, a to z, and its verses are labeled as such.


the caliphate s obligation
The “Caliphate’s Obligation”

o25.2 (H: The caliphate is a communal obligation just as the judgeship is (S: because the Islamic community needs a ruler to uphold the religion, defend the sunna, succor the oppressed from oppressors, fulfill rights, and restore them to whom they belong).) [Reliance]

H: Early commentator, IbnHajarHaytami.

S: Early commentator, Abd al-Hamid Sharwani.


enemy lands
Enemy Lands

w43.5 [section (c)] As for other countries, enemy lands (dar al-harb, lit, “abode of war”) consist of those with whom the Muslim countries (Dar al-Islam) are at a state of war (n: in the light of which, it is clear that there is virtually no country on the face of the earth where a Muslim has an excuse to behave differently than he would in an Islamic country, whether in his commercial or other dealings). [Reliance]


jihad against enemy lands
Jihad Against Enemy Lands

o25.9 [section (8)] and if the area has a border adjacent to enemy lands, an eighth duty arises, namely to undertake jihad against enemies, dividing the spoils of battle among combatants, and setting aside a fifth for deserving recipients. [Reliance]


killing women children
Killing Women & Children

o9.10 It is not permissible (A: in jihad) to kill women or children unless they are fighting against the Muslims. [Reliance]

A: Early comment by Sheikh Abd al-WakilDurubi.


killing old men
Killing Old Men

o9.10 (…) It is permissible to kill old men (O: old man) meaning someone more than forty years of age and monks. [Reliance]

O: Early commentator, Umar Barakat.


killing non muslims
Killing Non-Muslims

o1.2 The following are not subject to retaliation: [section (2)] a Muslim for killing a non-Muslim, [section (4)] a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.[Reliance]


obey the caliph
Obey the Caliph

o25.5 (K: It is obligatory to obey the commands or interdictions of the caliph (N: or his representative in everything that is lawful (A: meaning it is obligatory to obey him in everything that is not unlawful, offensive, or merely in his own personal interests, even if he is unjust, because of the hadith, “Hear and obey, even if the ruler placed over you is an Ethiopian slave with amputated extremities,” (…) [Reliance]

K: early comments by Muhammad ShirbiniKhatib.

N: early comments by Sheikh Nuh Ali Salman.

A: early comments by Sheikh Abd al-WakilDunbi.


muslim truces
Muslim Truces

o9.16 (para 6)(…) Interests that justify making a truce are such things as Muslim weakness because of lack of numbers or material, or the hope of an enemy becoming Muslim (…) If the Muslims are weak, a truce may be made for ten years if necessary (…) [Reliance]


respect for the rule of law
Respect for the Rule of Law

Civilized people respect the rule of law and abide by it in their daily lives; especially the Golden Rule.

Islamists on the other hand, view non-Islamic law as a simple instrument of convenience to be used as needed, and ignored otherwise.

They believe in a different law—the Sharia: a set rules developed 1400 years ago. Sharia specifies vastly different rules for Muslims and for non-Muslims. This does not include the Golden Rule.

Since infidel laws are not from Allah, there is no violation if they are broken by a Muslim.




Just say NO!



gall and audacity
Gall and Audacity

As Muslims gain strength in non-Muslim countries, the demand that Sharia law be legalized in place of our existing laws begins to increase. This is occurring in large-Muslim populations in countries such as Canada, Great Britain, and Sweden, and in some parts of the USA.

This may seem relatively harmless to the neophyte and/or useful idiot. However, once Sharia is recognized to any extent, it will eventually reach out to rule everyone, Muslims and non-Muslims alike, whether they want it or not!



islamist s view of democracy
Islamist’s view of democracy

Islamists have no use at all for rule by the people; i.e., democracy. Islamists believe that Allah’s rule must govern the world in the form of Caliphate -- a theocracy.

Islamists mock democracy, subvert its working, and ignore its provisions as a way to falsify what they believe to be a sinful and false system of governance invented by infidels.

To Islamists, Ummah-ism — international Islamism in the form of Sharia law — is the only legitimate form of government. Unfortunately, Ummah-ism is just another form of despotism such as Communism and Fascism, with a dose of “divine” authority tossed in.



ummah ism muslim community
Ummah-ism (Muslim Community)

Ummah-ism — international Islamism: believed to be the legitimate form of government. It is another form of despotism such as Communism and Fascism, with some “divine” authority tossed in. It is opposed to democracy and freedom.

For example, it exists in Iran under Khamenei, and in Arabia under the Saudi King These governments are infested with the Islamic disease of oppression, supremacy, corruption, and lack of accountability. Ummah leaders are as vile as Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, and Mussolini, etc.



a cadre of islamists useful idiots
A Cadre of Islamists & Useful Idiots

Muslim immigrants are instructed to produce many children so that they can over-run our political systems. Flush with our petrodollars, they easily gain power and undermine our democratic rule.

Unfortunately, many politicians, academics, and other useful-idiot liberals in government and education are blind with self-interest and help promote Ummah-ism in non-Muslim Countries.
