“The Sharia does not allow politics or political parties. That is why we give no salaries to officials or soldiers, just food, clothes, shoes, and weapons. We want to live a life like the Prophet lived 1400 years ago, and jihad is our right. We want to recreate the time of the Prophet, and we are only carrying out what the Afghan people have wanted for the past 14 years.”“The Taliban,” Mapping Militant Organizations, accessed April 21, 2015, http://web.stanford.edu/group/mappingmilitants/cgi-bin/groups/view/367#note15.

“Women should not step outside your residence. If women are going outside with fashionable, ornamental, tight and charming clothes to show themselves, they will be cursed by the Islamic Sharia and should never expect to go to heaven.”Lawrence Wright, The Looming Tower (New York: Vintage Books, 2006), 261.

“[W]hoever claims to be a ‘democratic-Muslim’ or a Muslim who calls for democracy, is like one who says about himself ‘I am a Jewish Muslim’ or ‘I am a Christian Muslim’—the one worse than the other. He is an apostate infidel.” Raymond Ibrahim, trans., The Al-Qaeda Reader (New York: Doubleday, 2007), 136.

“We don’t kill Muslims but rather we kill people who claimed themselves to be Muslims. They are called MURTADIN. This kind of people – we see them praying five times a day, performing all Islamic rites, but working with the enemy and with the Shaytan Forces against the Muslims, especially fighting Mujahideen.”Khadaffy Janjalani, “A Brief History of Al-Harakatul Islamiyyah,” Al-Harakatul Al-Islamiyyah, Essays on the Abu Sayyaf Group,” Third Edition, (Philippines: Philippine Institute for Peace Violence and Terrorism Research, 2012), 120, https://www.academia.edu/1921767/Al_Harakatul_Al_Islamiyyah_Essays_on_the_Abu_Sayyaf_Group_by_Rommel_Banlaoi.

“Accordingly, no Muslim on the face of this earth has an excuse to abandon the duty of establishing the Deen which Allah (swt) has ordered, that is, the establishment of a Khaleefah for Muslims, when there is no Khilafah on the earth, and no one to implement the limits (Hudood) of Allah (swt) to protect the sanctities of Allah (swt), and no one to implement the laws of the Deen and unify the Muslim community under the banner of Laa ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad al-Rasul Allah. There is no permission in Islam to abandon the work for this duty until it is indeed accomplished.”“The Re-establishment of the Khilafah is an obligation upon all Muslims,” Hizb ut-Tahrir America, accessed June 1, 2015, https://hizb-america.org/the-re-establishment-of-the-khilafah-is-an-obligation-upon-all-muslims/.

“The removal of Kufr depends upon the resumption of the Khilafah. Establishing Islam in actuality means the establishment of the Khilafah as that is the only method of implementing Islam. Indeed, without the Khilafah the Deen cannot exist in our societies. Hence the whole of Islam depends upon the Khilafah as that is the method that Islam defined to bring it into existence.”“The Re-establishment of the Khilafah is an obligation upon all Muslims,” Hizb ut-Tahrir America, accessed June 1, 2015, https://hizb-america.org/the-re-establishment-of-the-khilafah-is-an-obligation-upon-all-muslims/.
