American Muslim activists: We work to “reestablish the Islamic state”

Hizb ut-Tahrir America, the American branch of the international Islamic movement of Hizb ut-Tahrir, posted a video introducing its main goal to reestablish the Islamic State or the Caliphate.

Here is the transcript of the video (posted on January 4, 2016):

First speaker:

As-Salaam-Alaikum [Peace be upon you] to our Muslim brothers and sisters and greetings to non Muslim audience. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Hizb ut-Tahrir America. Hizb ut-Tahrir is international political party whose ideology is Islam. Hizb ut-Tahrir works to resume the Islamic way of life by reestablishing the Khilafah [Islamic State or Caliphate] in the Muslim lands, and works with the Muslim Ummah [nation] globally and locally so that she adopts Islam as her cause and is led to restore the Khilafah [Islamic State or Caliphate].

Second speaker:

In accordance to the Islamic Sharia [Law] Hizb ut-Tahrir utilizes non violent means for political change in reestablishing the Islamic state as outlined by the Prophet of Allah, peace be upon him. Hizb ut-Tahrir does not engage in political struggle in America or the West. It only engages in political struggles in Muslim lands. Moreover, Hizb ut-Tahrir rejects the meddling in affairs in the Muslim world by America and other Western powers and them imposing Western values and America hegemony against the Muslims.

Third speaker:

In America Hizb ut-Tahrir works to preserve the Islamic identity of Muslims and to keep them connected with the Muslims around the world. It reminds the Muslims that Allah is one, the Deen [religion of Islam] is one and the Ummah [Muslim nation] is one. Hizb ut-Tahrir reminds Muslims that they must obey Allah in all aspects of their life and that they must manage all affairs of their lives in accord with Allah’s Deen [religion of] Islam. With non Muslims we want to engage in a healthy dialogue with society as a whole such as stakers, policy makers and academics. We invite you to join us, engage in a dialogue with us, attend our events, follow us on social media and visit our website.
