The literature and writings of the Muslim Brotherhood are full of many of the free speeches about the caliphate and its role in establishing an Islamic state!
But an in-depth look at what this group’s thinkers produce clearly reveals that they are taking this idea as a way to legitimize violence against innocents and to control states.
The Brotherhood does not know or ignore that there are no legitimate texts, indicating that the Caliphate is the only image of Islamic regimes.
The experience of the caliphate was not successful except in rare periods of time in which it was associated with the person of the ruler not by the caliphate as a system. Which is an evidence that it is all about the manner of governance and the policy of the ruler, and the caliphate has no role in this context.
The way to the Brotherhood:
The previous title refers to a book, issued by a member of the muslim brotherhood of the Yemeni nationality, named Hussein bin Mohsen Ali, that tackles the idea of legitimizing violence against society. In order to recognize the Caliphate as the Brotherhood is chosen to assume the responsibility to lay the foundations of this system, as a representative of the Muslims.
The establishment of the brotherhood:
The author of the book, Hussein Bin Mohsen, points out in his book “The Way to the Brothers” that a Muslim community should be established in general and clearly states that the “Brotherhood” is the representative of the world’s Muslim masses.
In order to restore the Caliphate, as if Muslims can only rise by restoring the Caliphate, and that caliphate can not be restored only without the Muslim Brotherhood. These are direct messages that the author seeks to guide to young people, so as to ensure complete control over their minds.
On the way to the Brotherhood, the Yemeni writer recorded his steps through the pages of the book to reach his stated goal: that all roads lead to the Brotherhood. If there is no force and there is a climate of violence, it is temporary until empowerment and exclusion and violence against those who disagree.
He adds: “The reluctance of all Islamic countries to arbitrate the law of God, and raise the slogan of jihad, because it promotes the vice, and prevents the virtue, and suppresses those who seek to reverse what they want.
And those who what they want in peaceful coexistence with them, are wrong and they have to repent and ask forgiveness of God. Which shows that they accuse people with charges without evidence, one of the elements of the Brotherhood’s approach to the manufacture of enemies.
The author points out that every land under the banner of the community of the brotherhood is necessarily a court of justice, Islam, and peace and vice versa. Every land not under its rule is a place of injustice, which must be conquered so that everyone becomes one state under the banner of the Muslim Brotherhood.
He explains the main goal by saying: “To mankind to worship one Lord, and lead the principle of the promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, and remove sedition from the earth, and for the brotherhood conquer Rome, the capital of Italy.”
One of the strange points in this book is the boldness of the writer to limit the Islamic groups in the Muslim Brotherhood, and in a clearer sense, deny the Islamic character of any group other than those that he belongs to it.
The author emphasizes this meaning by saying: “The multiplicity of groups in the nation is invalid and must be eliminated, and the efforts of the whole nation must be in one form and in one direction, which is the Brotherhood.”
This comes without explaining why the Brotherhood owns the truth alone? Why do not they merge into other groups? Why should everyone obey them alone, and it is not permissible for anyone else to demand the same request?
At the end of the book, the writer goes back to assert that the brotherhood is the only saviour of Islam from its demise. And that without joining it, there will be no Islamic renaissance in the short or long term.
