A Secular Democratic Civic State – Or An Islamic State?
Mustafa al Iraqi
“And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the disbelievers”
(Civic State or Civic Nationalism is a kind of nationalism compatible with values of freedom, tolerance, equality, and individual rights)
Allah ta’la says: “﴾Then is it the judgement of [the time of] ignorance they desire? But who is better than Allah in judgement for a people who are certain [in faith].﴿” [5:50] & He (glorified and exalted be He) says: ﴾Have you not seen those who claim to have believed in what was revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you? They wish to refer legislation to Taghut, while they were commanded to reject it; and Satan wishes to lead them far astray – And when it is said to them, “Come to what Allah has revealed and to the Messenger,” you see the hypocrites turning away from you in aversion.﴿” [4:60-61]
Allah (glorified and exalted be He) also said: ﴾”And judge, [O Muhammad], between them by what Allah has revealed and do not follow their inclinations and beware of them, lest they tempt you away from some of what Allah has revealed to you. And if they turn away – then know that Allah only intends to afflict them with some of their [own] sins. And indeed, many among the people are defiantly disobedient.”﴿
Shaykh Nasir al-Fahd (may Allah release him) said: The Sharia is established by FORCE & whoever rejects it from the people is hit with the sword & thrown in the garbage & he does not look at the number of voters who approves or those who disapproves. [al-Fatawa al-Hariyah]
Verily the Sahwat factions in Sham are ruling with Jahiliya Laws & they come with excuses to NOT rule with the Sharia of Allah (Click here for refutation: justpaste.it/shariaexcuse). This is their current state, but what they promise for the future is worse – that is the topic that I will speak about in shaa Allah
By Allah, to understand the Islamic State & their actions towards the other factions then you must know the reality of those factions – if you are ignorant of their reality then I ask Allah to guide you through this text.
The factions I will speak about are all major groups in Sham, but specifically the groups that are allied to Jabhat al-“Nusrah” whom testified – “because they have a closer relationship to them than the Islamic State” – about their sound Aqídah & Manhaj – groups such as;
- “Islamic Front” (al-Jabhat al-“Islamiyyah”) which includes Ahrar ash-Sham, Jaish al-“Islam” & Liwa “Tawhid”
- Jaish al-“Mujahideen”
- Shāmiyyah Front (al-Jabhat al-Shamiyyah) which includes Jaish al-“Mujahideen”, Fastaqim Kama Umirt, Authenticity & Development Front & Nour al-Din al-Zenki (and Liwa “Tawhid”)
- Faylaq ash-Sham
Firstly all of these factions considers the Apostate leaders to be Muslims & that their land is Dar ul-Islam – Taghut Salman to Taghut Erdogan to Taghut Abdullah (in Jordan) & all others are all “just Muslim” rulers & they consider their armies to be an army of Muslims. This is important to know because it gives you a glimpse about how the future Syria will be if these factions gets authority – it also nullifies Jabhat al-“Nusras” testimony about these factions Aqídah & Manhaj whom they also made a Mubahala for (invoking the curse of Allah) – because this is a misguided & kufri Aqídah.

The Revolutionist Covenant of Honor – Mīthāq ash-Sharaf ath-Thawrī
This Joint-Statement was released 17th May 2014 and was signed by Jaish al-“Mujahideen”, Faylaq ash-Sham, “Islamic” Front (Ahrar ash-Sham, Jaish al-“Islam” etc) & Ajnad ash-Sham – Note that the three latter is part of the so-called “Jaish al Fath” together with Jabhat al-“Nusrah”
- #5 “It is important to preserve Syrian territorial contiguity and oppose any plans for partition by all means.“
Meaning they wish to protect the borders that was placed there by the ancestors of the Apes Sykes & Picot & oppose anyone who plans to obey the commands of Allah & His Messenger (ﷺ) by waging Jihad until the religion, all of it, is for Allah & to remove the nationalist borders – “by all means” as they said.
- #7 “The Syrian people aspire to establish a State based on Justice, Law & Freedom, Free of Pressures and Dictates“
“Justice & Freedom” to anyone who has a Syrian National Identity whoever he may be, whether he is a Druze, Nusayri, Rafidhi or any other apostate. “Free of Pressures and Dictates” meaning their State will be free of enjoining good or forbidding evil by force.
- #8 “The Syrian revolution is a revolution bearing morals & values, it aspires to achieve liberty, justice and security for Syrian society & its heterogen social fabric, its ethnic (i.e. Arabs, Kurds, Armenians) & religious (Muslim, Christian, Druze, Nusayri) components”
Here they confirm what I previous wrote on whom the “Justice & Freedom” will include, i.e anyone who is of Syrian Nationality.

18th March 2014 Jaish al-“Mujahideen” released a statement after a Christian Female Activist was arrested for refusing to wear Hijab – Jaish al-“Mujahideen” wrote an apology saying; “It is from Jaish al-“Mujahideens” fundamentals to maintain the public freedom (the choice of wearing Hijab or not) & defend it (the freedom of choice from anyone who wishes to implement the Sharia by enforcing it). “We in Jaish al-“Mujahideen” didn’t take up arms except to protect our people & remove the oppression (referring to the oppression of enforcing Hijab wa Hasbun Allah wa ni’mal wakeel), we will not allow for anyone to seize their freedom”
The Shāmiyyah Front
(YouTube video: youtube.com/watch?v=F2AxHibNirw)
1 March 2015 The head of the political and media department of the Shāmiyyah Front – Zakarīyā Malāhifjī – in a conference held by “the Revolutionary Forces of Aleppo” in Turkey said :
- “Second, the Shāmiyyah Front is a faction that represents Syria and the Syrian people. It considers Syria to be for ALL the Syrians. Liberating the Syrian nation and the Syrian people from the Iranian occupation and toppling Asad’s regime are our main goals to end oppression and establish the nation of freedom.”
- “Third, we consider the Syrian national identity to be the identity of all the components of the Syrian people: Arabs, Kurds, Turkmen, Circassians, Assyrians, and Syriac peoples, as well as all the other religious components.”
- “Fourth, Syria as it exists now with its internationally recognized geographic borders is a nation for all the Syrian people. The front refuses the division or formation of Syria according to any factional, political, or partisan agenda or ambition.”
- “Seventh, the Shāmiyyah Front presents thanks to the brothers and friends of the Syrian people, foremost of which are Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, as well as all the other countries. It also asks them to take a resolute stance to save the Syrian people from the Iranian occupation, the Iranian gangs, and the crimes of the regime.
- “Eighth, the Shāmiyyah Front believes that Demistora’s proposal does not present a plan as a political solution for Syria, nor did he present a written document, rather he proposes a ceasefire in Aleppo to save the regime from its continuous defeats and give the regime a chance to exterminate Douma, Daraa, and all the other Syrian regions. Demistora wants to jump over the decrees of the Geneva I and II Conferences on Syria, which the revolutionists had agreed to under the condition that its first decree be the change of the criminal regime and the transition to a free and independent Syria.
- “Tenth, we thank the brothers attending, and we thank the brothers in the Syrian National Coalition (SNC, the first & the last group whom Jabhat al “Nusrah” made takfir upon) and in the Syrian Interim Government.
After reading these statements one can only have one conclusion: If Syria falls into the hands of these groups then a mushrik Druze will have the same right as a Muwahhid Muslim because they have the same nationality i.e a Secular Civic State.
In the 8th point you can see him saying that the Shāmiyyah Front & all other “revolutionists” has agreed to Geneva I & II
The principles of Geneva I & II:
● End the violence
● Work on a political solution & negotiation between Rebels & the Regime
● The issuance of a constitutional declaration & form a fully fledged government
● Have parliament & presidential elections with the supervision of United Nations
● Advocate the principles in the international Geneva I conference
● Undergo relief work immediately
● Returning to normal life for all refugees & displaced individuals
● The commitment to the unity of Syria, unity of land, people & equality between all Syrians
● Establish a political regime that respects human rights & their freedom
Remember that Jabhat al-“Nusrah” fought (& still is) side by side with all these factions, in Deir Ezzor, Qalamoun, Aleppo & Daraa, testifying to their “sound & correct Aqídah & Manhaj”, giving them a foothold in Sham (so they can establish their Secular Civic State) even after all these statements, giving them victory over an Islamic State that rules with the Sharia of Allah.
The Secular Civic Laws That Has Already Taken Place
“A Statement Regarding the Painful Event that Occurred to the People of the Village of Qalb Lawzah”
(Full Translation & Size of the Statements; imgur.com/a/OqL4z)
12th June 2015 factions such as Ahrar ash-Sham, Shāmiyyah Front, Ajnad ash-Sham released a Joint-Statement condemning the killing of over 20 Druze Polytheists Apostates by soldiers of Jabhat al-“Nusrah” – in it they said:
“Our suffering nation received with great pain the news of the painful event that occurred in the liberated Idlib province towards the people of the village of Qalb Lawzah from the sons of the Druze sect” – while they used a Qudsi Hadith of the prohibition of “oppression”.
Shaykhul-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) said [in Majmū’ al-Fatāwā]: “Their harm upon the Ummah of Muhammad (ﷺ) is greater than the harm of the war-waging kuffār like the kuffār of the Tatars, the Franks [European crusaders], and others. There is no doubt that jihād against these people (Bātiniyyah which includes the Druze and the Nusayriyyah) and the implementation of the hudūd upon them are from the greatest acts of obedience and obligations.”
Continuing: “We in the military revolutionary factions share the pain and shock of our nation from what occurred. We also reaffirm the following: “We condemn these painful events that increased our pain” “What occurred in the village of Qalb Lawzah contradicts the teachings of our pure religion that has prohibited oppression against people and the spilling of their blood without right regardless of their sect or ethnicity. We will take the necessary procedures in cooperation with the remaining sects to prevent the repetition of this event in other liberated places. We reaffirm the necessity of handing over all those involved to a neutral shar’ī court.”
By Allah their religion (the religion of the Apostates) is impure & has nothing to do with Islam on the methodology of Rasulullah (ﷺ) & in accordance to the Salaf & our scholars.
Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) said: Rather, their harm on the religion is greater than the harm of the combatants from the mushrikīn and Ahlul-Kitāb. So it is obligatory upon every Muslim to attempt to do as much as he is able of this obligation against them (As the members of Jabhat al-“Nusrah” did). It is not permissible for anyone to hide what he knows of their secrets. Rather, he must spread them and make them public so that the Muslims know the reality of their condition. It is not permissible for anyone to cooperate with them by allowing them to remain amongst the soldiers and state employees. It is not permissible for anyone to be silent about establishing what Allah and His Messenger ordered against them. It is not permissible for anyone to forbid the establishment of what Allah and His Messenger ordered against them. This is from the greatest doors of commanding the good and forbidding the evil and jihād for the cause of Allah” [Majmū’ al-Fatāwā]. This is what the scholars of Islam said about them, this is Islam, but Islam is free from you (Secular Sahwat) & you are free from Islam.
Read here what Shaykhul-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) said about the Bātiniyyah (Druze & Nusayriyyah): justpaste.it/Druze
(Full Translation & Size here; imgur.com/a/zEZlF)
Few Hours later, the Jabhat al-“Nusrah” released a statement echoing the sentiments of their allies. It stated the following:
“Everyone who was involved in the event will be brought forward to a shar’ī court and be held to account for what is verified from him of spilling blood, and this is only ruling by the Sharī’ah of our Lord”
By Allah that is not ruling by the Sharī’ah of Allah, the Sharī’ah of Allah are free from you.
Continuing: “Jabhat al-Nusrah reaffirms that since the beginning of the conflict in the land of Shām it has not directed its weapons against anyone except those gangs from the criminal Nusayrī army, deviant Khawārij (the Islamic State), and corrupt factions (yet still Muslims according to Jabhat al-“Nusrah” like SRF, Hazm, Division 30)” So they are more deserving of the Khawārij trait of leaving the people of Polytheism & killing the people of Monotheism, just as they released 45 Crusader Soldiers under the pretext of them having an “Agreement of Safety” while betraying their own “Agreement of Safety” they game to Muslims – (read here for more info: justpaste.it/breaktreaty)
So according to Jabhat al-“Nusrah” and their allies, spilling the blood of the apostate, treacherous & polytheists Druzes is oppression! And if it is proven that a person has done so, then he must be punished according to the [Secular] “Sharī’ah” they follow!
The Alloush Brothers & their [Secular] Army of “Islam”
(Video for Zahran Allouh; youtu.be/VgNQa8HBWSc – Video for Muhammad Alloush; youtu.be/HxoZdBKbh0I)
Zahran Alloush answered to the question “What State do you view (to establish) after the Regime falls” in an interview:
“If we succeed in toppling the Regime we will leave it to the Syrian people to choose the form of state it wants, as for coexistence with minorities (Druze, Nusayriyyah i.e a Secular State) this has been the situation in Syria for hundreds of [Secular] years. We are not seeking to impose our power on minorities or to practice oppression against them. On the contrary, we have always criticized the Regime and fought it because it was practicing sectarian discrimination against the majority during the eras it ruled Syria.”
Zahran Alloush is a slippery snake who knows how to play the game as a Sahwaji (unlike his brother Muhammad Alloush) – His spokesman, Islam Alloush, said the speeches Zahran Alloush had made in Ghouta were for internal consumption, to rally fighters in the face of other, far more radical Islamist forces, such as the Islamic State. “There’s speech for the internal audience and for the external audience,” he said. “The internal speech is devoted to saving our sons from joining the Islamic State.”
Muhammad Alloush answered to the question “How do you see the future of Syria? Do you the future of Syria as Democratic and Secular one?” in an interview:
“That is something for the people to decide not for one faction to decide whether they be armed or political. If the people decided to have Secularism so be it! If they chose something else so be it! We can’t force anything [on them]!
They have made the Sharia of the Lord of the Worlds to be put on a vote & the “peoples choice” so that people can take it when they want it or leave it as they want it ﴾And when it is said to them, “Come to what Allah has revealed and to the Messenger,” you see the hypocrites turning away from you in aversion.﴿ [4:61] – ﴾The example of those who disbelieve is like that of one who shouts at what hears nothing but calls and cries cattle or sheep – deaf, dumb and blind, so they do not understand.﴿ [2:171]
A similar statement was said by Ahrar ash-Shams military leader “Abu Issa” (Previous leader of Suqor ash-Sham before emerging with Ahrar ash-Sham)
“The deadly consequences of mislabeling Syria’s revolutionaries”
“I’m a Syrian and I fight ISIL every day. It will take more than bombs from the West to defeat this menace”
10th July 2015 The head of foreign political relations for Ahrār ash Shām – Labib al-Nahhas – wrote an article for the Washington Post: washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-deadly-consequences – pleading to the West to label Ahrar ash-Sham as “moderates” he wrote; – “The group to which I belong, Ahrar al-Sham, is one example. Our name means ‘Free Men of Syria.’ We consider ourselves a mainstream Sunni Islamic group that is led by Syrians and fights for Syrians. We are fighting for justice for the Syrian people. Yet we have been falsely accused of having organizational links to al-Qaeda and of espousing al-Qaeda’s ideology.”
Using al-Qaeda (Jabhat al-“Nusrah”) as tissues for their own personal goals & interests, and when they are done with them they will throw them away.
Continuing: “We believe in a moderate future for Syria that preserves the state and institutes reforms that benefit all Syrians”. They leave no doubts that they want a Secular Kufr State.
21th July 2015 Labib al-Nahhas wrote a second article for The Telegraph – telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/islamic-state/11752714 – where he said in it: “Ahrar Al-Sham wants to see the end to Assad’s reign, ISIL comprehensively defeated and a stable and representative government in Damascus formed that puts Syria on the path to peace, reconciliation and economic recovery. We would like to see a political system that respects the identity and legitimate political aspirations of Syria’s majority while protecting minority communities and enabling them to play a real and positive role in the country’s future” – The only positive role Apostate minorities should play is repenting to Allah or face the sword.
In both of his articles Labib is asking for an open cooperating between Ahrar ash-Sham & the West (as we can see now one year later where USA are arguing with Russia not label Ahrar ash-Sham as terrorist & is openly supporting them against the Islamic State in north Aleppo: read more here: justpaste.it/klashinTawali)
Rivalry between Kufr & Imaan
17th February 2016 the political chief of The Shāmiyyah Front – Abdallah al-Othman – wrote an article for “Foreign Policy” (foreignpolicy.com/2016/02/17/) pleading to the West [USA] to support them & cooperate with them more than they already are, he said:
“Ideologies cannot be destroyed with military force. President Barack Obama said as much when speaking about America’s fight against the Islamic State, warning, “Ideologies are not defeated with guns. They are defeated by better ideas.” Unfortunately, the United States has been loath to apply this principle to its treatment of the Syrian opposition (i.e we can be more than your VSO dogs, we are that “better ideas” than you can help defeat the ideologies of IS with). As a consequence, the menace of IS has spread across the world, and worse may yet come if U.S. policy is not changed.
More crying to USA: “most recently with the capture of the northern Syrian town of Tal Rifaat on Monday by Kurdish PYD forces, backed by fierce Russian airstrikes. This town was one of the first in the country to protest against IS and expel them, only to be thoroughly destroyed and depopulated in a Russian-PYD offensive. – The United States is not defending us, even though we are one of the main Syrian groups fighting the Islamic State.” – But we have not received meaningful lethal support from the United States, and we were barely receiving any support at all until two months ago.
He also confessed that they began the infighting by planning it months beforehand: “The rebel groups within the Levant Front were the first in the world to sound the alarm on the unique danger posed by the Islamic State. Our component groups began operations against IS in September 2013, almost a year before the international community. In early 2014, we formed a broad rebel coalition against IS and routed them from Aleppo [the Sahwa].
“We had a key ingredient necessary to defeat IS: a viable rival ideology [Kufr Ideology], consisting of just [Secular] governance and rule of law for every Syrian, that was embraced by the local population. This served as a force-multiplier for our very limited supplies and basic weapons.” They sold their hereafter by embracing Secularism & Opposing Monotheism & those who ruled with the Laws of Allah just to gain public popularity – “a viable rival ideology” – indeed the rival of Imaan is Kufr & Nifaq, he spoke the truth & he is the liar.
Lastly he said: “The Levant Front is a product of the Syrian revolution. Like our compatriots across Syria, we protested peacefully for democracy in 2011 – We will continue to do so, not to please the international community, but because Syrians who have cast off the yoke of Assad do not wish to kneel before a new criminal dictator who pretends to follow Islam. –The Levant Front…we represent the aspirations of the people of Aleppo. We are local fighters who wish to attain democracy and defend our hometowns from slaughter. – The Levant Front desires a Syria that is free and pluralistic, with respect for human rights, peaceful elections, and the rule of law.
Nothing further should be added for anyone who is still sane and have the least of Islamic knowledge….
Turkey – Secular or Islamic?
Ayman Haroush – “Shar’ī” & “Scholar” of Ahrar ash-Sham – If someone needs a Fatwa in the areas controlled by Sahwat then its to this guy you go.
8th May 2016 Ayman Haroush wrote a Fatwa on his Facebook: www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=1737739576438353 – He gave a Fatwa of how it’s permissible to fight under the Crusader Coalition against the Islamic State…
But you can read the -highlight- of his Fatwa below:
This gives also gives you an understanding of how the future Sham will be if these factions gets authority – Sharia will never be implemented under the pretext of not having Tamkeen (empowerment), because if Turkey does not have Tamkeen in the eyes of their “scholars” then these factions will not have Tamkeen for eternity – and if a hardcore secular country like Turkey is excused due to Ta’wil (misinterpretation) then the future Taghut of Sham will also be excused due to Ta’wil by these so called “scholars” – & they will go back to reading speeches during Friday Prayers given to them by their new Taghut Secular authority – wa Allahu musta’an.
Conference in Riyadh & the Agreement on a Democratic Secular State
(Full Size; http://imgur.com/a/vMdhf)
In December 2015 all major & minor groups went to Saudi Arabia, Riyadh & participated in a conference in which they agreed to rule Syria with a Democratic Secular State – Groups like Ahrar ash-Sham, Jaish al-“Islam”, Faylaq ash-Sham, Shāmiyyah Front, Jaish al-“Mujahideen” & all other groups who fought against the Islamic State in Deir Ezzor & North Aleppo together with al-Qaeda’s branch Jabhat al-“Nusra” were present in the conference.
They all (except for Ahrar ash-Sham who claimed they “withdrew”) released statements fully supporting the conference & everything that was agreed in it (i.e a Democratic Secular State)
Even after Ahrar ash-Sham claimed they “withdrew” the name of their head of foreign political relations – Labib al-Nahhas – was found among all the other names that signed the agreement – even if they did sign or did not it does not matter because their previous statements that we discussed in this text is sufficient to know what kind of State they & the rest of the factions plans for Sham.
﴾”And thus do We explain the Evidence in detail, that the way of the criminals, may become manifest”﴿ [6:55]
These are the factions whom al-Qaida chose to have their Walaa (loyalty) for & Baraa (disavowal) for the Islamic State that were fought by them & made takfir upon them for their Apostasy – It is with these apostate factions the Fool of al-Qaida wants to establish an “Islamic” State with in Sham while fighting the “rogue Khawarij of al-Baghdadi” with all their might.
This is the reality of Sham & the factions in it – it is a war between Kufr & Iman, a war between Secularism & Islam, a war between apostates & Muslims, a war between those who wish to please the people & those who wish to please Allah, a war between the allies of Shaytan & the allies of ar-Rahman.
