Obligation of a single ruler

Weekly Sultaniyya Hadith Source Week No: 06


Obligation of a single ruler

Hadith 5, If the pledge of allegiance is given to 2 rulers (Khalifatain), kill the latter of them. (Muslim)

Commentary:

A: Additional proof used by the consensus that it is not permitted for the Muslims to have more than one Khalifah at any given time, as explained by Imam Nawawi as a proof for the ijma'a on the issue, and indicated by previous ahadith as well.

B: The order in the hadith to kill the latter of the two presupposes that all other ways to remove the second of the claimed Khalifahs have been exhausted.

C: Since it is known that the blood of a Muslim is sanctified, the order to kill the second of the two is another strong indication of the obligation of unitary rule, and raises the importance attached to the issue to one of life and death.

Supplication at the start of the prayer (after takbeer)
اللهُ أَكْبَـرُ كَبـيرا ، اللهُ أَكْبَـرُ كَبـيرا ، اللهُ أَكْبَـرُ كَبـيرا ، وَالْحَـمْدُ للهِ كَثـيرا ، وَالْحَـمْدُ للهِ كَثـيرا ، وَالْحَـمْدُ للهِ كَثـيرا ، وَسُبْـحانَ اللهِ بكْـرَةً وَأَصيـلا . ( ثَلاثاً ) أَعـوذُ بِاللهِ مِنَ الشَّـيْطانِ مِنْ نَفْخِـهِ وَنَفْـثِهِ وَهَمْـزِه

Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, much praise is for Allah, much praise is for Allah, much praise is for Allah, and I declare the perfection of Allah in the early morning and in the late afternoon. (three times) 'I take refuge with Allah from the devil, from his pride, his poetry and his madness.'
