Launch of the Islamic World Currencies
by Shaykh As-Sufi in South Africa

This is, to be historically precise, the most important event since the deposition of the Kalifate when the Osmanli dawlat was dismantled by the political class because the instrument with which the Osmanli and earlier, the Moghul dawlat was destroyed was in the case of India the gold and silver of the Rupiah was replaced by the paper Rupiah which reduced the whole continent to extreme poverty. And the machinations of the banking system, bankrupted the massively rich dawlat of the Osmanli with its powerful land base in Turkey.
Now, at the point that the power left the Osmanli, at the moment they got rid of Sultan Abdul Hameed (Rahimu Allah), the issue was very clear that the history books have been written by the enemy and so people don’t know today that Sultan Abdul Hamid was approached by the head of the Zionists and was told that they would pay off his debts and they would rescue the economy of the Osmanli, if he would hand over Palestine to the Zionist movement. And in a famous letter, and in a famous letter, Sultan Abdul Hamid said I would never surrender the land that was won by the blood and courage of the muslim soldiers of the Osmlanli dawlat. And if you want that land you will have to destroy me first. So they proceeded to that destruction and the end result was the foundation of the state of Israel by a bribed vote in the prior invented institutions of the United Nations built without any mandate in New York.
The point of this preamble to this important event, is that the Palestinians, instead of surrendering to the overwhelming force of the enemy, which according to Islamic law, they should have done, and the result of which would have been, that they would now be enormously rich and powerful, if instead of turning their sons into suicide bombers, they had married them, had four wives and their children would demographically, outnumbered the Israeli populous. Instead they chose to follow the ideology of Woodrow Wilson and talk to the political farce of the just rights of the Palestinian people self determination and the whole ideology of Post-Marxist Europe following 1945.
The point being, that supposing they get their trivial little nation state and the very point that the nation has been rendered meaningless, they will then have to tie whatever miserable paper currency to the shackle of the hated enemy, their hated enemy. The future revival of Islam is based on the revival of value-based currency, as opposed to the paper money usury system with increase in the transaction which has collapsed. This financial system has collapsed and with it the political system that upheld, it has also collapsed. They are busy trying to restore both of these institutions but mathematically they cannot rescue the financial system and therefore the politicians have already descended, let say, to the lowest forms of animal life, of human life.
So today, here we are in South Africa, where the political class is faced with having spent billions of dollars per stadium, for a world cup, which is a social instrument that is designed to prevent the political uprising of the masses. And at the same time there are men demonstrating that they have no lavatories in the township of Khayelitsha which was a creation not of Apartheid but in its present form, double the population, the creation of the governing regime of the ANC.
The age of politics is dead and the paper finance system in dead. We argued this for 20 years, people laughed but after the crisis of American banking the whole world knows that the system doesn’t work and they are still trying to put it all back and make the masses pay. So here we come to a historic moment, in the history of Islam.
The first coins that we made, were made in Scotland. Following a meeting I had with the Islamic ministry of affairs of Sharjah, Shaykh Abdallah Ali Al-Mahmud, we started to examine the matter of finance within the Islamic law according to Madina. And he said to me, it’s important that your Aqida is correct. If the Aqida is correct, you will arrive at the correct solution. And by that we embraced the school of the Amal and the Ahal of Madina.
So the first Gold Dinar we minted in Scotland and we put on it the sword of the Jacobites, in honour of my ancestor who lead the charge at Colon. And we made the Dirham of Silver with my family crest of the Dallas on it. That was in 1993. At that point, when we talked about an Islamic currency of real worth, people laughed. People thought we were eccentric. People talked about going to the past. Now of course if you tune into Russian television, RT, every week there is an experienced economist saying, get rid of your paper money. Buy gold. Buy precious metals.
So the whole atmosphere has changed. The main research work on this was done by Umar Pasha, who is now, working with the Islamic government of the state of Kalantan in Malaysia and they are minting the Dinar and Dirham for the restoration of the payment of Zakat. In their legal form the more developed, affecting the people has come the work of Pak Zaim in Indonesia, where they have set up a whole system to distribute it to people and so its already a parallel currency with the fantasy currency of the Indonesian paper system. Now today, we can show you the key element, which strangely enough, is not just the silver and the gold of the currency but its under pinning by fulus.
At a meeting I had with, Shaykh Mahmud Effendi, of Turkey, the Head of the Naqshibandi Order. Shaykh Mahmud Effendi, may Allah give him health and long time with us and protection. Shaykh Mahmud Effendi said this is the currency of the muslims but he said, you must have the Fulus, for two reasons. There is not Zakat on Fulus because its not a precious metal and because the widow must be able to buy her loaf bread with an untaxed currency, that allows her to be halal in all of her financial transactions.
Ironically, the thing that was difficult to persuade the muslims to do was produce the Fulus because the Fulus represents the political act of having a currency that can operate right across the board in the quitodian, in the everyday. So here you see, these were the first Dirham and the Dinar. Then here we have the one dinar, two dinars and eight dinars. Then we have in the silver, we have Dirham.
These are Dirhams. This is ten dirhams. And this is a very important one because this has been minted for the European Muslim Union. You will be able to see it that it has on it the map of Europe and EMU and this is a ten dirham piece. And this is the preliminary to a working committee that has been set up in Macedonia and in Germany under the leadership of Rais Abu Bakar to see how a complete currency can be provided, which will be valid throughout the whole of the European Muslim community.
Very significantly this is the time when the nation of which the Capitalist societies pretend they have based their foundations, which is, Greece has collapsed in a massive debt, which has been then loaned to them to repay it from Germany and France and the rest of the European Union. But the repayment of that debt is not in the hands of the banks, it’s in the hands of the masses of the Greek population which is the final evidence why the disaster of Greece started, the day they left the Dawlat of the Osmanli.
Now I am going to ask my brother, Hajji Imran Chand and also Mr Kruger, of the great family of Kruger who are a key part of the history of this tragic country which is now floundered in disastrous political and financial situation, South Africa.
This is 50 of the Fulus and the next one is 25, and then next one is 10. Its better designed than the Euro money I must say. Here we are witnessing the beginning of an Islamic currency. 50, 25, 10, 5, 1 of the Fulus, the Dirham and the Dinar. Here we have a complete working currency that can run parallel with the fantasy currency devaluing, in the pockets of the people who possess it.
This will maintain its standard because at the point of usage, the mythical tying of price of gold to the paper currencies becomes irrelevant and is not a measure anymore of wealth or poverty. So this is a big event and it’s happened not accidentally in South Africa, as it faces the crisis of its failed attempt to govern a country through a democratic system which has produced the lowest people to govern and rejected the highest people and put them out of office or into exile.
So we ask Allah SWT to give us success. We ask Allah SWT to give guidance to the Muslim leaders. We ask Allah SWT to arouse the Arab world to shame, not about Palestine because they should have surrendered. They have no claim. They have no rights and they have disgraced Islam by going over the Shia. We ask Allah SWT to make the Arab world face up to the disaster that is Dubai and the massive wealth of Dubai and across the water, the devastating, tragic poverty of Muslim people from Chad to Khartoum. The answer is not political. The answer is real wealth and real wealth will lead to Amal and Amal will then allow legal collection of Zakat by appointed Zakat collectors. That is the secret of Zakat not a given charity but in the Quran it says 'take'. And the foundation of this lies in this currency but also the purchase of a loaf of bread.
We ask Allah SWT to give success to the Muslims. To give us a new leadership worthy of the profound Iman of the Muslim Nation. Amin.
