Homegrown Jihad: Canadian Imam calling for establishment of the Caliphate

Jonathan D. HaleviRebel Blogger

Imam Mazin Abdul Adhim, a senior cleric of Hizb ut-Tahrir - Canada, recently called upon the Muslim Ummah (Nation) to unite in order to establish the global Islamic state, also known by its Arabic name the Caliphate.

The London, Ontario-based Imam vehemently opposes the Caliphate founded by ISIS in Iraq and Syria and does not accept the authority of its self proclaim Calif Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Rather he advocates for a new Caliphate that will implement the Islamic Law word for word and extend its authority over all the Muslim lands.

In a video clip on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr (July 17, 2015) at the end of the month of Ramadan, Imam Abdul Adhim explained that the Muslim Ummah is one body, and all its woes in the different parts of split up Muslim lands are originated only from the lack of a home for Islam and the absence of an Islamic regime that is able to represent the Ummah, as all Muslim regimes today are “traitors” or serving the interest of the “enemy” (the picture of US President Barack Obama was shown in the background.)

The only solution, said Imam Abdul Adhim, is to call for the implementation of the teachings of Islam as a whole, to teach the Ummah about the Islamic ruling system, the economic system, the social system, the foreign policy etc. and categorically rejecting the idea of secularizing Islam. Abdul Adhim’s role model is Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam, who brought about a political change by first founding a group of supporters, then changed the beliefs of the society and later changed the political loyalties in society and of the army.

The Canadian Imam of Iraqi descent emphasized that this call is not addressed only to the Muslim Ummah, but also to the Muslim armies to spur them to take a concrete action against the “colonial puppet” regimes and support the call for establishing the Caliphate. “We need an Imam, we need a Khaleefah [Calif] to unite us,” concluded Imam Abdul Adhim stressing once again that it is the responsibility of both the Ummah and the armies to make it happen.

During the Toronto al-Quds Day rally in August of 2014, activists of Hizb ut-Tahrir distributed a leaflet calling the Muslim armies to unite forces to liberate Palestine.

Imam Abdul Adhim expresses his deep commitment to the ideology of Hizb ut-Tahrir. The following are excerpts of his recorded speeches in recent years:

Pledging allegiance only to the Islamic Caliphate

“So this is the problem that without a Khilafah [Caliphate, Islamic State] Islam cannot be implemented and individually are obligated to give a baya [allegiance] to a Khalifah [Caliph, head of the Islamic State]…

“So it is required for us to give a baya [allegiance] to a Khalifah [Caliph, head of the Islamic State], but since there is no Khilafah [Caliphate] you can’t have a Khalifah [Caliph] therefore it is fard [obligatory] upon us to re-establish the Khilafah [Caliphate] so we can give a baya [allegiance] to a Khalifah [Caliph]…

“And that’s why it is a call not only to the brothers here, not only to the brothers who are watching online, everybody who has any capacity of spreading this word all the way to the armies of the Muslims, our brothers and sisters. This word has to reach them. They have to understand that this is the only way forward. It’s the only way to achieve the nasr [support] of Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla [Owner of Greatness and Reverence] is to support this dean [religion] and this call to Khilafah [Caliphate].”

Rejecting democracy

“And that’s what I want to do. I want to present to you the alternative view, the view that says that voting in a secular democratic system, in a system that will not implement Islam, that does not implement Islam, to vote for anybody to become a legislator in such a system it is something that Islam forbids and I want to present the evidence for this…

“What our identity is? We are Muslims, strewn about all across the planet without anybody who represents us. We are Muslims who are actually belong to the Khilafah [Caliphate]. The Khilafah [Caliphate] represents us and it was destroyed in 1924. We are responsible for working to re-establish it. So this is the first thing. We must work to establish the Khilafah [Caliphate].”

Supporting cutting off thieves’ hands

“The punishments: cutting a hand of a thief and whipping the fornicator and so on. What do you do in these situations? How does it work? This is the last resort after you’ve established this system… You’ve showed them that if you do it the punishment is so severe it will stop them from doing it.”

the muslims problem is “lack of a home land” ?
there are about 50 countries with muslim majority !!!!!
Abdul Adhim should check his facts, maybe go check out some of those hell holes that have muslim majorities, and stay in one of them forever.
it’s really a tragedy that the nazis picked the wrong ones for their final solution, had they went after islam they would have done everyone else a huge favor, instead they went after the ones who contributed greatly to the world rather than the ones who’ve done so much damage.

I think we should call for his deportation. This is nothing short of treason and sedition. We do have laws against such public declarations and I think its about high time we put them back into action and deport traitors such as this man. The UK should rethink their stupidity as well. He should be deported to a country friendly to his own aspirations and let Canadians to live their lives in peace. There are plenty of countries for him to express his wishes like Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Sudan, and Yemen. Let him fight for his beliefs instead of prompting idiots to do it for him!

Yet Ezra is being prosecuted for calling Alberta Human Rights “Crazy” and this guy can spew off garbage like he just did. I can’t believe what’s happening to Canada and around the world.

I see he is calling for muslims to not vote in a secular democratic system, since it is forbidden. He’s going up against the Trudeau boy, who has worked pretty hard past while to get the Canadian muslims to do just that! This might bite into the boy’s campaign a bit.

Why is this POS mouthpiece allowed to spew the hate of islam?

I agree with Greg Nault. Get him out of Canada now! Where is Canada’s CSIS? Why is he being aloud to spout this crap in our country. Whether he was born here or emigrated here, he needs to have his passport revoked and his backside booted out.

Get this piece of crap and all that agree with him out of Canada NOW!

It is hard for someone like me to fully wrap my head around this stuff. There are so many corners, so many players, and so much to absorb. We have to be more aware of the threat, and give it its well deserved due. We have to be afraid enough to act or we will all be sitting ducks. The left in Canada are complacent, and even complicit through its misreading and down playing of any threat, in the name of being ‘inclusive’? Even going so far as to question the validity of Israel’s right to defend herself.
I am grateful to you for shedding light on what goes on right under our noses. Imam Abdul Adhim’s call for a re establishment of the caliphate should make us all shudder.

“During the Toronto al-Quds Day rally in August of 2014, activists of Hizb ut-Tahrir distributed a leaflet calling the Muslim armies to unite forces to liberate Palestine.”
This is not cool.

What a motor mouth. Holy cow!
His world caliphate shall never be.
China and Russia know how to deal with these clowns even if we don’t.
