MONARCHY OR KINGSHIP and KHILAAFAH

1. If monarchy/kingship is wrong, then why did Allaah تعالى appoint Taaloot as a king?

{And their Prophet said to them, “Indeed Allaah has appointed Taaloot as a king over you.”} ►[Surah al-Baqarah (2): 247]

2. If kingship is wrong then why were Prophets Dawood and Sulaimaan عليهم السلام ruling as kings?
———–

3. If the kingship is wrong in itself, then why did the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم not warn against it when he said:

“The Caliphate of Prophecy will last thirty years; then Allah will give the Kingdom or His Kingdom to anyone He wills.” ►[Sunan Abu Dawood (4646, 4647) and Sunan al-Tirmidhee (2226) and graded as “Hasan Saheeh” by Shaikh al-Albaanee]

This was a perfect opportunity for the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم to warn against monarchy, but he didn’t.

If a ruler/king has done something wrong, then this is a completely different subject.

4. If establishing Khilaafah is the reason why Allaah تعالى sent the Prophets, then why did Yusuf عليه السلام cooperate with the king? Why did he عليه السلام ask to be the guardian of the storehouse instead of working to establish the Khilaafah?

**No matter what type of ruler ship it is, the sole purpose is to establish WORSHIP of Allaah:

Messenger of Allaah (ﷺ) said, “I have been commanded (by Allaah) to fight people until they testify أن لا إله إلا الله وأن محمدا رسول الله and perform Salaah and pay Zakaah. If they do so, they will have protection of their blood and property from me except when justified by Islaam, and then account is left to Allaah”. ►[Saheehain]

Allaah’s promise is that whoever establishes His Worship, Allaah will give them authority, make it easy for them to practice their religion and provide them safety. But some people try to do the opposite, saying we will first establish Khilaafah and then we will work on Tawheed. AJEEB!

وَعَدَ اللَّـهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَىٰ لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُم مِّن بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا ۚ يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا ۚ وَمَن كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ فَأُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ

{Allaah has promised those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the earth, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practice their religion, that which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islaam). And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided) they (believers) WORSHIP Me and do not associate anything (in worship) with Me. But whoever disbelieved after this, they are the Fasiqoon (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). } ►[Surah al-Noor (24): 55]
