Today we are living in critical times, we have seen the problems our ancestors would never have thought of. Whenever, I start reading an article in any newspaper all I can find is a heap of problems mentioned by the people. I have a disagreement about only mentioning problems in principle. Identifying problems and not providing a viable solution brings no positive outcomes. In current scenario there is large list of problems in Pakistan. The problems like food crisis, price hikes, energy crisis, economic and social issues are just a few to name. These problems encompass a wide spectrum of issues having roots in different systems necessary to manage one’s life. Each society inherently bases over 6 systems i.e. ruling system, economic system, social system, judicial system, education policy and foreign policy. Without these basic systems in place the masses, their needs and problems cannot be managed. Sadly, all our problems have deep roots in these systems that are flawed. It is important today that we start questioning about the current system and what good it can bring to us. If this system is flawed then we shall be looking towards alternatives.
Pakistan today implements the systems having roots in Western secularism, an ideology alien to Islam. The democracies and dictatorships where the right to legislate is designated to one or more individuals and the economic system that has the basis in freedom of ownership. These systems are designed in a way that only a specific elite can get the maximum out of it while exploiting the masses. Problems in Pakistan are all a byproduct of these systems. Apart from these systems, the second problem that we all face are the treacherous rulers who are the flag-bearers of this system.
It is a matter of sincerity that people identify this system and its flag-bearers as the real culprits and start looking towards an alternative system. The system that helped us to prosper for 1300 years with breakthrough inventions and remarkable advancements in science and technology. But, when the West with the help of their agents, like Sharif Hussain of Makkah, Saud of Hijaz, Mustafa Kemal of Turkey and their henchmen, destroyed the strongest system that existed ever on the face of earth resulted in utmost misery and agony for all the Muslims no matter where they live. It is time that we take steps to remove the systems and the rulers all across the Muslim world and establish Khilafah. The system that Allah (swt) and His Prophet (pbuh) has promised to us. Only the Islamic system implemented in totality can bring a halt to the problems. Merely labeling the existing systems with Islam or implementing Islam in bits and pieces is not a solution.
