Constitution of the Caliphate State / Foreign Policy
- Category: Foreign Policy §181-191
Article 191: The State is forbidden to belong to any organisation which is based on anything other than Islam or which applies non-Islamic rules. This includes international organisations like the United Nations, the International Court of Justice, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, and regional organisations like the Arab League.
The subject which the international and regional organisations are established upon has been prohibited by the Shari’ah.
The United Nations is established upon the basis of the Capitalist system, which is a system of Kufr, above and beyond which it is a tool in the hands of the large nations, particularly America, which exploits it for the sake of imposing its influence over the smaller nations, which the current states in the Islamic World are a part of.
The International Court of Justice judges with a system of Kufr, and going to it for a judgement is to take a judgement from other than what Allah (swt) has revealed.
The International Monetary Fund is established upon giving loans of hard currency with interest, and on a basis of exchange that is forbidden according to the Shari’ah, and so it does not give hard currency in exchange for the local currency on the spot, but rather it gives hard currency to the State which is in need of hard currency, in exchange that after a period of time it repays it the equivalent from its own currency with additional interest which is specified. This kind of currency exchange is forbidden since it is a type of currency exchange that has been prohibited, because currency exchange either has to be carried out on the spot without any delay, since if there is a delay it is forbidden as the narration has mentioned. And in the same manner it also includes interest which is also forbidden.
The World Bank is established upon utilising interest, like any other bank.
The Arab League is established upon the basis of the Capitalist system, and it explicitly mentions in its constitution that it is to protect the independence of the Arab states, in other words, the protection of the separation and division of the Islamic lands, which is prohibited.
Similar to the Arab League is the Organisation of Islamic Conference and its like.
For these reasons, it is forbidden for the Islamic State to belong to any of these organisations.
This is the draft constitution, or the necessary evidences for it, and we have clarified the evidences for the rules which are part of the articles of the constitution, and explained what was necessary to be explained, and it is clear that this constitution is an Islamic constitution, in other words, it is composed of Shari’ah rules deduced from Shari’ah evidences, in other words, from the Book (Quran), the Sunnah, the Ijma’ of the companions, and Qiyas. This is why it is a duty upon the Muslims to act according to it.
