Due to what our Islamic world suffers from in terms of decline and backwardness and what it endures in terms of oppression and abuse we see that many movements have come one after another that aimed at stopping its decline, elevating its status and to revive with it to the highest elevation that befits it. However, all of these movements for more than 100 years have failed to achieve what they strove for and the evidence for their failure is the reality of the Islamic world today. It has continued in its decline until it has reached the very bottom or near to that and we have not gained anything from these movements except for this unbridled and ardent desire to work for change. So we are able to say that the good that these movements left for us is the general feeling or the desire to bring change and even if they have taken the Ummah to the brink of despair. However, the one who examines the Ummah finds that it still has within it the noble qualities that allow it to accept a way out from what it suffers from, as long as it senses that there does exist a way to free themselves or that there is a reliable trustworthy leadership that it can follow or be led by.
The one who examines these Harakaat (movements) and has followed these attempts will find that they were not actions by individuals but were rather structures (Takattulat) or organisations that were structured upon a specific thought for the purpose of achieving a specific goal or objective. Despite this they failed.
This book is an explanation of the book by Shekh Taqiuddin Nabhani , Takattul Hizbi, dedicated to studying the various movements that arose in the past 2 centuries , their aims, objectives and why did they fail and what are the lessons to be learnt from their failure.
