And do not forget us in your dua’s

Say, “Die in Your Rage!” – by Sheykh Abu Muhammad Al Adnani


In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Beneficent

An Address by the Spokesman for the Islamic state The Mujāhid Shaykh Abū Muhammad al ‘Adnānī ash-Shāmī (Hafidhahullāh)

All praise be to Allah, the Mighty, the Strong.May blessings and peace be upon the one who was sent with the sword as a mercy to the creation.As for what follows…

Allah the Exalted says, {Say,“Call your ‘partners’ and then conspire against me and give me no respite.Indeed,my protector is Allah, who has sent down the Book; and He is an ally to the righteous} [Al-A’rāf: 195-196].

Gather, O spiteful crusaders, and assemble your allies from amongst the murtaddīn (apostates), the Rāfidah,and the atheists.Gather, form your alliances collectively, and support  one another. Gather  every day and form your plots and schemes. Gather, conspire, and mobilize. The muwahhidīn  (monotheists) will not fear you. The mujāhidīn will not be frightened by you, for they have taken  refuge with a strong pillar, and have sought protection with the Mighty, the Wise, the Praiseworthy,  while having confidence and assurance.

{Is not Allah sufficient for His Servant? And yet, they threaten you with those they worship other  than Him. And whoever Allah leaves astray – for him there is no guide. And whoever Allah guides – for  him there is no misleader. Is not Allah Exalted in Might and Owner of Retribution?} [Az- Zumar: 36-37].

It is with this creed that we fight you, O crusaders. So how impossible it is for you to gain victory!  Indeed, every mujāhid muwahhid has complete certainty that you altogether will not be able to  harm him except with the permission of his Lord who has taken him as an ally.

{And He is the subjugator over His servants. And He is the Wise, the Acquainted with all} [Al-An’ām: 18].

{Effecter of what He intends} [Al-Burūj: 16].

O Jews, O crusaders, O Rāfidah, O murtaddīn, O sahwāt, O criminals, O enemies of Allah altogether!  Indeed, we will remain upon our path, confident of our Lord’s support. So die in your rage! By Allah, you will not see from us – with Allah’s permission – except  that which will grieve you. So praise be  to Allah, who has made the Islamic State a thorn in your eyes, a choking pain in your throats, a  spear in your chests, and a rage burning in your hearts. Die in your rage!

By Allah, you will not see from us – with Allah’s permission – other than harshness and might. And  whoever amongst you survives our bombings and escapes our weapons, will – by Allah’s permission – die from his grief over our victory.

So rejoice, O Muslims everywhere, for  your  State – by Allah’s grace – is becoming stronger and  stronger… Remaining – by Allah’s permission – and expanding… Continuing upon its path, with clear  guidance and insight from its Lord… Taking confident steps with no doubt or hesitaHon.

And in spite of the ongoing crusade, the gathering of those near and far against the Islamic State,  and the war waged against it by those both close and distant, we bring the mujāhidīn the good  news of the Islamic State’s expansion to Khurāsān (a region encompassing Afghanistan, Pakistan,  and other nearby lands). Indeed,the mujāhidīn from amongst the soldiers of the Khilāfah have  fulfilled the conditions and met the requirements for the declaration of Wilāyat Khurāsān. They  have announced their bay’ah to Amīrul-Mu’minīn (may Allah preserve him) Khalīfah Ibrāhīm, and he  has accepted it and appointed the noble Shaykh Hāfidh Sa’īd Khān (may Allah preserve him) as the  Wālī of  Wilāyat Khurāsān, and appointed as his deputy the noble Shaykh ‘Abdur-Ra’ūf Khādim Abū  Talhah (may Allah preserve him).

Therefore, we call upon all the muwahhidīn in Khurāsān to join the caravan of the Khilāfah and  abandon disunity and factionalism. So come to your state, O mujāhidīn! Come to your Khilāfah, for  you are the forerunners. You have fought the English, the Russians, and the Americans, and upon  you today is a new fight; a fight to enforce tawhīd (monotheism) and vanquish shirk (polytheism).  So come forth, humbling yourselves before Allah, and Allah will honor you and raise you. Come  forth, for this  is an opportunity for the Muslims and it has not yet passed you by, so do not lose it.

We call upon all the soldiers of the Islamic State who are in Khurāsān to listen to and obey the Wālī,  Hāfidh Sa’īd Khān, and his deputy (may Allah preserve them both), and to prepare for the great  tribulations they  will  face. The factions will assemble against you and the rifles and bayonets will  multiply against you. But you are up to it, with Allah’s permission.

So unsheathe your swords and take out your spears. Be firm and do not weaken or somen. It will  either be victory through which Allah will honor Islam and the Muslims, or shahādah by which we  will meet Allah having been excused, and indeed, we see victory only two bows’ length away or  even closer. As for the near-term, by Allah’s power  and strength, this crusade will be broken, and we  will have thereafter – by Allah’s permission – a  meeting in al-Quds and an appointment in Rome, prior to which  the crusader armies will be defeated in Dābiq. Indeed, they see it as distant, but we see it as near.

O crusaders! Your wild campaign has carried on for months, but the mujāhidīn – by Allah’s grace – have only  increased in strength, steadfastness, and their certainty of victory. And every day that  passes, the fear, terror, and loss of security you suffer only  increases. Your dog Obama, out of his cowardice and feebleness, continues to warn against being dragged into a ground war, and because  of your weakness and incapability, he continues to emphasize the role of the murtadd Arab rulers,  their armies, and their sorcerers from amongst the palace scholars, and how  important and  essential they are in this campaign. He depends on them, and on supporting and aiding the sahwāt,  and he promises victory in spite of his emphasis that the battle will take long.

{He promises them and arouses desire in them, but Satan does not promise them except  delusion} [An-Nisā’: 120].

None of this will benefit you. We will see you on the ground and will meet you on land, and we will  defeat you here and attack  you in your land. This is the promise of Allah; Allah does not fail in His promise.

Therefore, O mujāhidīn, ready  yourselves, prepare for  the enemy and seek help from your Lord, for  the battle is about to intensify. Indeed, the affair is tremendous. It is extremely tremendous. So  praise Allah, O soldiers of the  Islamic State, for making you live to see this day and selecting you for  this affair. Let every one of you defend his position and not let Islam be harmed from his direction. Otherwise, there can be no less than to sacrifice one’s life and cheaply give away one’s soul.

Likewise, we renew our call to the muwahhidīn in Europe and the disbelieving West and  everywhere else, to target the crusaders in their own lands and wherever they are found. We will  argue, before Allah, against any Muslim who has the ability  to  shed a single drop of crusader blood  but does not do so, whether with an explosive device, a bullet, a knife, a car, a rock, or even a boot  or a fist. Indeed, you saw what a single Muslim did with Canada and its parliament of shirk, and  what our brothers in France, Australia, and Belgium did – may Allah have mercy upon them all and  reward them with good on behalf of Islam. And there were many others who killed, ran others over,  threatened, frightened, and terrorized people, to the extent that we saw the crusader armies  deployed on  the streets in Australia, Canada, France, Belgium, and other strongholds of the cross to  whom we promise – by Allah’s permission – a continuation of their state of alert, terror, fear, and  loss of security. And what lies ahead will be worse – with Allah’s permission – and more bitter, for  you haven’t seen anything from us just yet.

Lastly, the muwahhidīn have rejoiced  at the death of the tyrant of the Arabian Peninsula, the traitor  of al-Haramayn (the two Sanctuaries of Mecca and Medina). We ask Allah to cast him into Hell –  and wretched is the destination – to the severest of punishments, with Pharaoh and Hāmān.  Furthermore, we say that his death means nothing to us. One tāghūt (a ruler who rules by  manmade law) has perished and another tāghūt has taken his place, and they are both puppets.  There is no difference whether they are present or not, for the real rulers of the lands of al- Haramayn are the Jews and crusaders, not Salman or Bin Nayef (may Allah disgrace them both).

We ask Allah the Exalted to destroy Āl Salūl (the apostate House of Saud) – the dogs of the Jews and  crusaders – along with their helpers and supporters from amongst the evil scholars and the callers to deviance, and to hasten the liberation of the lands of al-Haramayn and the Peninsula of  Muhammad (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him).

And to Allah belongs the command before and after, and there is no might or strength except by Allah.




If you have the right to slander the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ, we have the right to defend him. If it is part of your freedom of speech to defame Muĥammad ﷺ it is part of our religion to fight you.

I would like to express my thanks to my brothers at Inspire for inviting me to write the main article for the first issue of their new magazine. I would also like to commend them for having this subject, the defense of the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ, as the main focus of this issue.

This effort, the effort of defending the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ, should not be limited to a particular group of Muslims such as the mujāhidīn but should be the effort of the ummah, the entire ummah. This is an issue that should unite the efforts of the Muslims worldwide.

When I delivered a lecture in defense of the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ almost two years ago, I anticipated that the cartoon controversies along with the Muslim response to them were not going to be some isolated incidents that would just fade away. My prediction was that the West would continue escalating its attacks and would only entrench itself deeper into blasphemy. I expected this, because the hatred the West holds towards Islām and the Prophet of Islām ﷺ is a smoldering fire only waiting for an opportunity, a chance, to vent itself through a “proper” channel within the boundaries set by Western laws and freedoms.

Outrageous slander, blatant smearing of Muĥammad ﷺ, desecration of the Qur’ān, and the insulting of over a billion Muslims worldwide are done under the pretext of “freedom of speech”. They are never called what they really are: a deeply rooted historic hatred for Islām and Muslims. Yesterday it was in the name of Christianity; today it is in the name of Democracy.

Allāh says: (Hatred has already appeared from their mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater) [āl-`Imrān: 118].

For these reasons, for this combined effect of an escalating problem, I gave my lecture the title, The dust will never settle down.

Today, two years later, the dust still hasn’t settled down. In fact the dust cloud is only getting bigger.

Whenever the affair calms down, someone somewhere in the Western world is sure to flare it up again. From 2005 onwards the cycle of offense is unabated.

What the West is failing to realize is that these attacks are also serving as a mobilizing factor for the Muslims and are bringing more and more Muslims to the realization that jihād against the West is the only realistic solution for this problem along with a host of other problems that cannot be cured without fighting in the path of Allāh.


Muslims do love Muĥammad ﷺ and do want to defend his honor and their methods of doing so are varying. Muslims protested and demonstrated worldwide. They burned flags and struck effigies. They boycotted products manufactured by some of the countries involved. All of these acts of good were a manifestation of the solidarity of Muslims in defense of the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ. On the other hand, there were some completely misguided efforts such as those of some of the callers to Islām who paid a visit to Denmark along with young Muslim boys and girls to start a dialogue in order to build bridges of understanding between the Muslims and the people of Denmark!

It is not enough to have the intention of doing good. One must do good in the proper way. So what is the proper solution to this growing campaign of defamation?

The medicine prescribed by the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ is the execution of those involved. A soul that is so debased, as to enjoy the ridicule of the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ, the mercy to mankind; a soul that is so ungrateful towards its Lord that it defames the Prophet of the religion Allāh ﷻ has chosen for his creation does not deserve life, does not deserve to breathe the air created by Allāh ﷻ and enjoy a life provided for by Allāh ﷻ. Their proper abode is Hellfire.

The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ called for the assassination of Kā`b bin al-Ashraf and there are other incidents of his companions killing those who spoke against him. There was a blacklist of names of people in Makkah that were to be killed even if found hanging on to the clothes of al Kā`ba, the holiest site in Islām. This list included, among others, women who sang poetry defaming Muĥammad ﷺ. Even though Muĥammad ﷺ prohibited the killing of women who are non-combatants, these women were an exception because of their unprecedented transgression.

There were some Muslim voices giving their interpretations as to why the US has not been involved in Europe’s expression of hate. For myself it was only a matter of time before the US joins in. Now America has entered into the fray with full force. The 20th of May event overshadowed all what preceded it. America was the one missing link in the chain. The chain is now full circle. The West has started this war and it will turn colossal. The West is awakening a sleeping giant.

We, by the will of Allāh will not back down from the defense of our beloved. We will fight for him, we will instigate, we will bomb and we will assassinate, and may our mothers be bereaved of us if we do not rise in his defense. It is the honor of the best of creation that is at stake and it is not much to set the world on fire for his sake.

To my Muslim brothers everywhere especially in the West: When the Şaĥāba, may Allāh be pleased with them, came back from a successful assassination mission against one of their enemies, the Prophet ﷺ met them on their return with a beaming face and said: «May these faces be successful». Who among you will be of those who will meet the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ on the Day of Judgment only to have him smile at you, pleased with your action, and hand you a drink from al-Kauthar because you rushed to his defense?

This is a golden opportunity to have the honor of performing an act in the service of Islām greater than any form of jihād. Defending the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ is a greater cause than fighting for Palestine, Afghanistan or Iraq; it is greater than f ighting for the protection of Muslim life, honor or wealth. This is the pinnacle of all deeds and is waiting for the likes of Muĥammad bin Maslamah.

A cartoonist out of Seattle, Washington, named Molly Norris started the “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day”. This snowball rolled out from between her evil fingers. She should be taken as a prime target of assassination along with others who participated in her campaign. This campaign is not a practice of freedom of speech, but is a nationwide mass movement of Americans joining their European counterparts in going out of their way to offend Muslims worldwide. They are expressing their hatred of the Messenger of Islām ﷺ through ridicule.

The large number of participants makes it easier for us because there are more targets to choose from in addition to the difficulty of the government offering all of them special protection. But even then our campaign should not be limited to only those who are active participants.

These perpetrators are not operating in a vacuum. Instead they are operating within a system that is offering them support and protection. The government, political parties, the police, the intelligence services, blogs, social networks, the media, and the list goes on, are part of a system within which the defamation of Islām is not only protected but promoted.  The main elements in this system are the laws that make this blasphemy legal. Because they are practicing a “right” that is defended by the law, they have the backing of the entire Western political system. This would make the attacking of any Western target legal from an Islāmic viewpoint. The entire Western system is staunchly protecting and promoting the defamation of Muĥammad ﷺ and therefore, it is the entire Western system that is at war with Islām. Assassinations, bombings, and acts of arson are all legitimate forms of revenge against a system that relishes the sacrilege of Islām in the name of freedom.

Western freedoms of expression guarantee the defamation of Islām but do not guarantee the right to speak about issues such as the Holocaust. When the cultural editor at Jyllands-Posten who posted the Muĥammad ﷺ cartoons wanted to publish cartoons on the Holocaust, he was placed on indefinite leave and the editor in chief of the newspaper said that Jyllands-Posten under no circumstances would publish the Holocaust cartoons.

Now, with the defamation of Muĥammad ﷺ reaching the shores of America, I wonder whether the patriotic American Muslim will still have the audacity to claim that he enjoys the right to be a Muslim in America? Does he understand that this right includes his duty to fight against those who blaspheme his Prophet ﷺ?

We invite Muslims worldwide to stand up in defense of the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ and for their efforts to manifest in all appropriate means.

May Allāh make us of those who are honored with playing a part in the defense of the best of creation, Muĥammad ﷺ.
