The unity of the Party
The ideological party is an idea incorporated in a group of people whose will and determination is to incorporate it in society.This will, i.e. the will of establishing the ideology to govern the relationships, is but an outburst that occurs in the wake of a combustion in the emotion and the thought due to the incorporation of the Idea, as a Aqeedah and a culture, within the group of people. Hence, it is the combustion in the emotion and the thought that makes the Party an intellectual and emotional whole as a result of the incorporation of the idea within the group of people. The unity of the Party would have no significance if it were not an intellectual and emotional whole. Hence, the essence in the unity of the Party is the idea that is fully incorporated within the group of people. The Party being based on the Idea can only mean the incorporation of the idea in an elaborate manner within the group of people. It would be insufficient for the Party to be nominally based upon the Idea; it should rather be completely incorporated within the group of people. Therefore, what safeguards the unity of the Party and what keeps it united is the adherence to the Idea in its clarity, purity and crystallisation, and the endeavour to incorporate it fully and as it is, until the will is integrated within this group of people in a sound manner. This alone constitutes the true safeguard that maintains the Party as an intellectual and emotional whole. If the idea of the Party were struck, or if its incorporation within the group of people were slack, the intellectual and emotional unity of the Party would be struck; thus the concepts, criteria and convictions that had been incorporated within the group of people would differ and the entity of the Party would be cleft, even if its administrative apparatus remained intact for a while. This is so because the structural characteristic of the Party is formed of a host of elements linked by a bond that turns it into an entity. The elements from which the structural characteristic is formed are the group of concepts, criteria and convictions, the group of people and the bond that binds these elements, which is the Aqeedah upon which the Party is founded and the culture, whose concepts distinguish the Party.
The Idea upon which the Party is built is the Islamic Aqeedah and what emanates from it in terms of rules and what is built upon it in terms of thoughts. As for the incorporating of the Idea, it is the bond that incorporates the host of concepts, criteria and convictions within the group of people. If the Idea were struck or if slackness crept into its incorporation, the Party would be struck in its entity, be it with regard to the elements from which the structural characteristic of the Party is formed or with regard to the bond that binds them together.
As for the slackness in the incorporation of the Party痴 idea, it leads to the predominance of the private will over the common will of the Party, and this will in time lead to the transformation of the intellectual leadership in the Party into a chieftainship (Za誕ma). Some of this chieftainship痴 aspects is to revolve around personalities instead of the ideology, and at a societal level, the spread of the split between the private will and the common will shall result in weakening the common will of the Party and this in turn shall lead to weakening the incorporeal personality of the Party in society.
It was only natural, with the Party being in such a state, for the redress process of the Party to result in the split of the Party over itself, for the aim of the redress movement was first and foremost to preserve the Idea upon which the Party has been founded, since this Idea is the soul of all people. Allah (swt) says: T.M.Q. "O you who believe respond to Allah and His Messenger when He calls you to that which gives you life." [8-24] In other words, the Idea is the life, to the people, the Ummah, the Party and the State, i.e. 擢irst the Idea, then the Party, then the State.” , until our objective is achieved by resuming the Islamic way of life and carrying the Da'awah to the world. Hence, it is imperative to depart from this fundamental principle and to proceed according to it. Since it started and up until the date of the Party痴 chieftainship removal, the intellectual leadership of the redress movement clashed with the multiplicity of opinions, the diversity in the concepts, criteria and convictions and with the Partisan chieftainships. Only the ones who had acquired a higher level of sensation did they get attracted by the ideology痴 magnet. As for the rest of the Shabab, some of them remained attached to the chieftainship痴 magnet, while others, though they did not remain attached to the magnet of the chieftainship, they did however continue to revolve around their own orbit under the banner of the unity of the Party, despite the fact that the unity of the Party must be reflected in its intellectual and emotional unity, not in the attempt to unite its chieftainship. It must also be reflected in the unity of its Party structure, not in the attempt to unite its administrative system.
The path towards incorporating the Idea in the group of people is not through the issuing of a leaflet from time to time, nor through the taking of some chieftainships from here and there. However, it seems that the glitter of the Party痴 unity banner has made some Da'awah carriers forget that placing the Party ahead of the Idea will sow dissension between the Party and the Idea and this will lead to cleaving the Party further in the name of the Party痴 unity. The Idea is before the Party and the Party is before the State. In other words, The Idea first, then Party, then the State.
This is the fundamental principle and this is the springboard. Nothing from this will ever change Allah willing no matter how tenebrous the problems became and no matter what the pretences and justifications were.
Allah (swt) says: T.M.Q. "Say: This is my way I do invite to Allah on clear evidence, I and whoever follows me...." [12-108]
