94 years after its abolishment, are the Turkish people reviving the Ottoman caliphate

Yesterday marked 94 years since the abolishment of the Ottoman Caliphate on 3rd March 1924 CE. [1] The caliphate has played a significant role throughout the history of Islam and its destruction is arguably one of the darkest eras in Islamic history following the death of Prophet Muhammad (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam). [2]

Its history comprises of hundreds of years of enormous territorial expansion, economic growth and academic development. The caliphate, or better known as the Khilāfah in Arabic is the position of authority and representation which is given to a selected individual over the Muslim Nation following the final prophet Muhammad (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam).



#3rdMarch1924 – 94 years without the Caliphate



Narrated by Abu Huraira the Prophet Muhammad (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said,


“The Children of Israel used to be ruled and guided by prophets; whenever a prophet died, another would take over his place. There will be no prophet after me, but there will be Caliphs who will increase in number.” The people asked, “O Allah’s Messenger (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam)! What do you order us (to do)?” He said, “Obey the one who will be given the pledge of allegiance first. Fulfil their rights, for Allah will ask them about (any shortcoming) in ruling those Allah has put under their guardianship.” [3]

The responsibility of the Caliph was to act as the representative of Muslims, acting according to and ruling by Divine law (Shariah) in totality, establishing prayer, collecting obligatory alms (zakāt), and conveying the message of Islām to the entire world. [4]

Turkey today has witnessed drastic changes ever since the abolishment of the caliphate and the rise of the Zionist-sponsored, secularist Mustafa Kemal “Atatürk”. [5] “Atatürk” came to power imposing decades of secularism on the Turkish people. Turkey endured a staunchly secularised political climate for a number of years but is currently undergoing a remarkable transitional period, in which it is removing itself of the tyranny that suffocated it.

In recent years under the leadership of the Justice and Development Party (AK Party), Turkey has reversed the Hijāb ban, built more than 17,000 new mosques, reinforced familial values, clamped down on alcoholism and formed many other policies in line with Islamic principles. [6]

In February, the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan commented that Turkey should reconsider criminalising adultery and bringing back the ‘adultery law’. During a weekly parliamentary group meeting in Ankara, Erdoğan stated,


“This society holds a different status in terms of its moral values…This is self-criticism. I must say that in the EU process we made a mistake … We should now evaluate making regulations about adultery and perhaps consider it together with the issue of harassment and others…This is an issue where Turkey is different from most western countries.” [7]

Earlier in February, Erdoğan also said that the Republic of Turkey is a continuation of the Ottoman Empire. During a memorial ceremony to mark the anniversary of the death of Ottoman Sultan Abdulhamid II, Erdoğan stated,


“The Republic of Turkey, just like our previous states that are a continuation of one another, is also a continuation of the Ottomans. Of course, the borders have changed. Forms of government have changed… But the essence is the same, the soul is the same, even many institutions are the same.” [8]

Turkey has demonstrated its concern for the vulnerable and oppressed in accordance to humanitarian acts and principles which Islam has emphasised. It has also shown to be extremely charitable and in 2016 was ranked second in the world for the amount of humanitarian assistance it provided ($6 billion), whilst providing the most humanitarian assistance as percentage of gross national income (GNI). [9]



Turkey Ranked Second in the World for Most Humanitarian Aid



Abdullāh b. Salām (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:


The Prophet (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said, “O people, promote the greetings of peace (Salāms), feed (the poor and needy) and pray when others are asleep so that you will enter Jannah safely.” [10]

Charity is one of the most essential manifestations of any Islamic country. The above is the founding statement of the Prophetic Islamic state, which presents the great emphasis and direct command the Prophet of Allah made to the Muslims with regards to humanitarianism and charity.

The Turkish people have come a very long way since the abolishment of the caliphate, an event which certainly marked a turning point in history that was so momentous that mankind can feel the aftershocks of it until present day. However, even with the vicious decades of secularism that was enforced following the fall of the Ottoman caliphate, the Turkish people have used every means to preserve and uphold their Islamic identity against the toxic secular “Atatürk”-driven assault against the deeply-rooted values of the Turkish people.

Re: 94 years after its abolishment, are the Turkish people reviving the Ottoman calip

Here's another worthy article from the same publication.
https://www.islam21c.com/politics/ti...cial-measures/

Home / Current Affairs / Is it time for Ofsted to be put into special measures?


Is it time for Ofsted to be put into special measures?
Posted by: Ustadh Abu Haneefah Sohail in Current Affairs, Europe, Latest, Opinion, Politics, UK 2 days ago 0

You would be hard-pressed to find an independent regulatory body with as low an approval rating amongst its own professionals as Ofsted. A recent YouGov poll revealed that only 15% of teachers believe Ofsted inspections make a positive contribution to schools,[1] and an even smaller 9% thought Ofsted were independent and free from political interference.

A new independent report produced by think tank Claystone,[2] relating to 581 no-notice inspections in schools between June 2014 and March 2016, reveals disturbing trends of independent faith schools being disproportionately targeted by Ofsted. If that was not evidence enough of institutional prejudice against the Muslim community, a geographical review of where the disparity is most pronounced leaves little doubt: Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Birmingham.

The precursor to this intense period of no-notice inspections was the ‘Trojan Hoax’ debacle which occurred in March 2014. Park View High School in Birmingham was allegedly the centre of an ‘Islamist’ plot to impose hard-line Islamic values on a highly successful comprehensive state school. The alleged plot has since been exposed as a hoax.[3] Nonetheless, at the time the story was headline news for weeks and provided the perfect pretext in June 2014 for the then Secretary of State for Education, Michael Gove, to announce in parliament the use of no-notice inspections to assess the implementation of ‘British Values’ in schools.[4]

One need not be an educationalist or a political commentator to connect the dots here. A highly successful comprehensive state school in the heart of the Muslim community is the subject of a smear campaign which creates sensationalist headlines across the national media of Islamist plots to take over schools and indoctrinate and radicalise children. This, in turn, creates the necessary momentum of public opinion demanding action be taken. Michael Gove then introduces far reaching changes to the Ofsted Inspection framework, essentially changing the focus of inspections from the progress and well-being of children to the imposing of a narrow set of secularist values rebranded as ‘British values’. Ofsted then use the Park View school case to racially profile schools and launch what can only be described as a campaign of ‘terror’ against independent faith schools in high concentration Muslim areas. This is despite the fact that Park View was a comprehensive state school and not an independent faith school.

The changes that Gove introduced were so far reaching and detrimental to faith schools in particular that only a perceived crisis like the ‘Trojan Hoax’ could have galvanised public opinion and overcome opposition from faith schools including Christian and Jewish schools. This is state sponsored social engineering at its ugliest.



The Claystone report also focuses on the presumption that the absence of ‘British Values’ in schools necessitates the promotion of so-called “non-violent extremism”. This is utterly false. Schools are not government instruments of social engineering indoctrinating children with values conducive to government policy. They are supposed to be places in which children are taught the skills necessary to be productive citizens; this includes challenging prevailing assumptions and stereotypes. Even if we acknowledge that non-violent extremism is a problem in society, the claim that this leads to “radicalisation” and violence is counter to academic literature and precisely the reason why many academics oppose the Prevent programme.[5]

The report concludes that the weaponisation of Ofsted to attack independent faith schools in Muslim areas through the enforcement of a ‘British values’ has been counterproductive and has damaged integration. Ofsted has lost the little credibility it had; hence the current inspection regime is not fit for purpose. What is needed is a truly independent and representative inspection body that teachers, school leaders and parents have confidence in and is free from political interference. There also needs to be a move away from the current iteration of British values to an authentic, ‘citizenship-for-all’ model as endorsed by the UK Race in Europe Network.[6]

For those - like myself - who do not know what CALIPHATE actually means - I looked it up on Google and this is what it says ... the rule or reign of a caliph or chief Muslim ruler...

The Ottoman Caliphate, under the Ottoman dynasty of the Ottoman Empire, was the last Sunni Islamic caliphate of the late medieval and the early modern era. During the period of Ottoman growth, Ottoman rulers claimed caliphal authority since Murad I's conquest of Edirne in 1362.

They must have modeled it on the Christian Church, slavery, bondage, forced celibacy, castration [castratos], auto de fa, the inquisition, burning heretics, forced conversion or death in so many emerging countries, those moral icons, the Borgias, crusades---ahh the good old days,Christianity was so superior to those heathens.
