THE PROGRAM FOR PEOPLE OF THE RIBAT

FOUR POINT PROGRAM:

To Establish The Complete House of Islam /To Establish Sovereign Land -Based Amirates in America/Implementation of the Amal of Madinah/Dhikr of Allah based upon Ikhlas

Be steadfast, hold each other to steadfastness, help each other to be firm (lit. make Ribat) and have Taqwa of Allah in order that you may be successful..” (Qur’aan 3:200)

Historically, the Ribat is the fortress where Muslim warriors traditionally trained for the Jihad against ignorance and social injustice, and for inner spiritual enlightenment. Where they prepared for Victory & Life or Death & Paradise.

1. To Establish the Complete House of Islam.

On the authority of Abu `Abdir-RaHman `Abdullah, the son of `Umar bin al -Khattaab (may Allah be pleased with them both), who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) say: Islam is built upon five (pillars): Testifying that there is no god but Allah and MuHammad is the Messenger of Allah, establishing the salaat, paying the Zakaat, making Pilgrimage to the House, and fasting in Ramadan.” It was related by Bukhari and Muslim.

As Muslims, we cannot be content to remain as ethnic or religious minorities controlled by the kuffar. Allah has charged us with the task of establish ing Islam. This does not just mean prayer and fasting. It means governance, establishing justice by upholding the limits of Allah by calling to the good and forbidding the evil. We cannot be a passive minority governed by the kings of kuffar who are ope nly committed to the elimination of Islam and tolerating only token representations of other religions. Kufr is one system. We must oppose it. They recognize that Islam is the only force that can overcome it, and we, the Muslims, are the only people who have the guidance and the knowledge to do it. We are to establish Islam, not just the five pillars, but the whole house. Make Dar al-Islam a reality, in this time, in this place.
Today, most Muslims are Not committed to establishing Islam. Some may pray, many don’t. Some may fast, many don’t. Some may pay the zakaat, most don’t! Some strive to perform the Hajj, many don’t. All of us say we believe in Allah, but so does ShayTaan! We must do the good actions of the five pillars. We must act! We must perform the 5 salaat per day. We must pay the Zakaat to an Amir. We must dutifully fast in Ramadan. We must strive to perform the Hajj as a duty to Allah, the Most High.
The House of Islam is supported by five (5) Pillars, not, one, two or three! However, the first three are the strongest supports and MUST be in place to give relevance to the last two! Then and only then will our Shahadah be complete and we can say we truly believe in the Prophet -hood of MuHammad (may Allah bless him and grant him pea ce) and the Guidance with which he was sent. One cannot live in a house until it is built! We must not be content to live in the house that Jack built.

We must strive to live in the “house” MuHammad (SAWS) built, or forever be left “out in the cold”!

2. To Establish Amirate.

“Oh you who believe! Obey Allah, obey the Messenger, and those of you who are in authority.” – (Qur’aan 4:59)

The Bay’at, or oath of allegiance to an Amir, is an act of power. Establishment of Amirate is the cumulative first step in the establishment of Islam. It is the forgotten and/or ignored Sunnah of the First Community and it is what will give the Muslims political strength. Withdraw your allegiance to the State and the Bank, and make Bay’at. It is the affirmation of the trust that binds the Muslims together. Without it you are helpless and alone.
The Organized communities of this growing National Amirate are Local Amirates under an Amir. Allah gives the Amir the authority and the people under bay`at gives him the power. These people are groups of men and women who are committed to each other by their common bond to the Amir. It is our strength and our Protection.

The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said:

Whoever dies without having bound himself by an oath of allegiance to an Amir will die the death of one belonging to the days of Jahillyya.

Also: Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that he heard the Messenger of Allah say:

“He who obeys me obeys Allah, and he who disobeys me disobey s Allah; and he obeys the Amir obeys me, and he who disobeys the Amir disobeys me; and the Imam/Amir is an armor for protection*— the battle is fought for his defense and through him protection is sought. So, if he commands the doing of duty to Allah and does justice, he has a reward for it; and if he does otherwise, he shall suffer then evil consequences of it.”

* Amir literally means one who holds command ; and the word is applied to any person who is entrusted with any kind of authority over others. The highest ruling authority in Islam was (and will be) called Amir al-Mu’mineen (Commander of the Faithful). The Amir or the Imam in the above hadith is called junnah, or an armor for protection, because without the institution of Amirate/Imaarah, or subjection to authority, a people cannot protect themselves either from an enemy or from one another.
The bay`at given to the Amir who represents government is not the bay`at given to a Shaykh (a Spiritual Guide). The bay`at to this Amir is commanded upon b elievers by Allah in His Book and by His Messenger MuHammad (SAAWS) in his Sunnah. Therefore, it is Fard and Wajib. The bay`at to a shaykh is a nawafil (optional) act. To do it, or not to do it, does not contradict Islam.

3. ‘Amal of Madina..

The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said: “Madina is the home of Islam, the abode of Iman, the land of Hijra, and the place where the Halal and the Haram were initially set out.

In order to establish a Madinan Islam, we follow the ‘Amal (practice/behavioral mode) of the people of Madinah as taught by Imam Malik, the Imam of Madina, in his source book, Al-Muwatta’. Islam is governance according to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger, as embodied by the First Community. Throughout history, it can be seen that Islam has been established by holding closely to this primal way.

It was by putting this teaching into practice that Islam reached the peak of its presence in West Africa and it has been by following this way that it has returned once again. However, it must be emphasized that the Practice of Madinah does not incorporate certain cultural idiosyncrasies, such as dancing and whirling, which some people have, in their zeal, ignorantly introduced into Islam. By Allah’s Power, The Practice of the People of Madinah will Destroy the Rule of the Banks and their ungodly, anti-human usurious system, which has enslaved the whole world.

4. Dhikr (Remembrance) of Allah.

We are commanded to remember Allah, to call on Him, to rely on Him alone. It is only by Dhikrullaah that the heart can be freed from fear of creation and anxiety about provision. It is only by Dhikrul-laah that we are able to take on the responsibility that has been entrusted to us., keeping Islam pure, as was established by the First Community. The Muslims are the Khalifs of Allah on earth, and Allah promises us victory. We must raise the banner of Islam and claim that victory. The kuffar are not in charge; they are lost in the darkness of shirk, immorality, worshiping their own passions and their technology.

The Muslims have knowledge of Allah and the light of His Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. Join this Amirate in raising the banner of Islam in America. Deliver the message and strive in the way of Allah.

Allah says: “You are the uppermost if you are Believers.” Believers are Black, Brown, Red, White or Yellow in skin tone. America is the country for Islam! Affirm the Shahadah! … Believers are superior to the kuffar, superior to the politicians, superior to the bank presidents, superior to the social workers and tax collectors. Why? Because you believe in Allah and His Messenger and you embrace The Reality while the kuffar struggles, using his finite intelligence, to get away from the reality he too, MUST one-day face, bare and alone!

You are the best nation raised up for men: you enjoin good and forbid evil and you believe in Allah. And if the people of the Book had believed, it would have been better for them. Some of them are believers but most of them are transgressors (faasiqoon). Q 3:109

Islam is the answer. If we stay as we are, we will continue to be exploited, degraded slaves to an antihuman system, which is a vampire sucking our life’s blood and tossing o ur bodies aside for the next victim. A system that is designed to destroy us, destroy our Deen, our heritage, our hearts, our very souls. Don’t be a slave of the system. Be a slave of Allah. We will become strong and free. Success is by Allah, alone. Our dreams will only be dreams until we make them realities by dwelling in our own cities under our own discipline. By Allah, everything good is possible.

“Allah has promised to those who believe and do good that He will surely make them rulers in the earth as He made those before them rulers, and that He will surely establish for them their deen, which He has chosen for them, and that He will surely give them security in exchange for their fear. They will serve Me, not associating anything with Me. And whoever is ungrateful after this, they are the transgressors (the faasiqoon).” Q 24:55
