The causes of failure and how to take lessons (from it).
By Tawfeeq Mustafa October 1999
(Quick rough draft translation)
The Hizb has been present for more than 50 years and it has not accomplished the aim that it
had set for itself and it has not even got close to that. As such, it is necessary to become aware of
the reasons or causes which have brought the Hizb to this dead end.
The Hizb has placed for the Shabab and the Ummah a wide and comprehensive culture covering
all aspects of life and which is established upon the basis of Islaam in a detailed form. It
explained the systems of Islaam in a detailed form, as deduced from the Kitaab of Allah Ta’Aalaa
and the Sunnah of His Nabi ﷺ, and it clarified the Islamic Aqeedah and the meaning of it being
established upon the mind and its agreement to the Fitrah (nature) of the Insaan (human). It
then explained the manner of how to carry the Islamic Da’wah and the obligation of the Muslims
to live in one single state. Just as it also made clear the meaning of the Siyaadah (sovereignty)
being for the Shar’ and the Sultaan (authority) belonging to the Ummah. However, the Hizb, in
spite of that and having passed through half a century and despite the sacrifices, it has
(nevertheless) failed in respect to accomplishing the aim that it had set a period that did not
exceed three decades to accomplish. What then are the reasons or causes that have made the
Hizb reached this dead end?
Concerning this, I view the following to be representative of them:
First: The building of the Shabaab was not a correct (or sound) building which produces from
them political and leader personalities which can reach the hearts and minds of the people and
through that, be able to lead them.
Second: The way of addressing the Ummah was not suitable or appropriate which made the
Ummah avert from it instead of proceeding along with it.
Third: Preoccupation of the Hizb in peripheral or side issues whilst neglecting an important
matter, which is adopting the interests of the Ummah and undertaking actions of politicians.
Fourth: The Hizb turning itself into a Mufti and so it passed verdicts on issues which agitated
the people against it, making the people be averted from it and providing its opposition with a
weapon to be used to attack it.
Fifth: Not dealing (or interacting) well with the Islamic groups within the Muslim lands and
outside of them.
Sixth: Not undertaking a study of the reality of the Islamic Ummah from time to time, not to
mention not undertaking a study of the reality of the Hizb itself.
