Jakarta, MINA –  The Preacher of Jama’ah Muslimin (Hizbullah) Midfallah has said that the khilafah system existing in Islam does not threaten the existence of a country.

This view was conveyed by Midfallah in his presentation of the leadership system in Islam in the educational crash program entitled “The Understanding of Imamate Jama’ah” in Kapuk Muara  Village, North Jakarta on Sunday (13/8).

“The Caliphate does not threaten this country, because this caliph is not a state caliphate like the ISIS,” he said in front of about 50 participants.

According to him, the khilafah practiced by Khulafa Rashidin or the first four Khalifah (leaders) of Islam, who were believed by Muslims as the successors of the leadership after the death of Prophet Muhammad. Is a khilafah that follows the  prophetic footsteps  that are universal and inter-regions or countries..

He tells of the King of Najasyi who converted to Islam, but the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not order to dissolve his kingdom.

“The Messenger of Allah was not sent to power. But when that power is given, it is accepted. Like the previous prophets. Like the prophets Zulkifli and David, their kingdom are given by others. Prophet Sulayman did not inherit his father’s kingdom of David, but was given directly by God, ” he said.

He added, understanding that the Islamic Shari’a can not be implemented without the power is not true.L/R04/RS5)
