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.

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!

(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)

Fighting for Aleppo, Abandoned by the World [West]”

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….

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:

13187812_200260570367231_487523061n

 

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

cv307ejveaejdn12photo-2016-06-22-13-15-052riddah32

(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)

labibnahhas

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.

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH THE GRACIOUS THE MERCIFUL

All praise is due to Allah. May blessings and peace be upon the imam of the mujahidin, our Prophet Muhammad, and upon his family and all of his companions. To proceed:

Allah SWT said, “And tell My slaves to say that which is best. Verily, Shaytan incites them against each other. Verily, Shaytan is a clear enemy to mankind” (Al-Isra 53).

Lately, an issue has circulated among the soldiers of the Islamic State that has led to disagreements regarding some matters over which the hearts and tongues have disputed, reaching the point of ruining relationships between the disputing parties. We have never held these issues lightly, as Allah’s Messenger SAWS warned us against them, describing them as cutting away the religion, saying, “For verily, ruining the bond of unity is the cutter.” (Reported by at-Tirmidhi, who graded it “hasan sahih.”)

We have looked into the basis of disagreement, which relates to the hukm (judgment) of the one who refrains from making takfir of mushrikin who ascribe themselves to Islam and what that entails of various opinions. What we have found is that the cause of disputation comes from two opinions, both being incorrect due to excess on one hand and negligence on the other. The following, by Allah’s permission, shows both opinions and then what we consider to be the actual hukm of Allah in this matter…

The First Opinion:

“Whoever refrains from making takfir of mushrikin (those who worship other than Allah), who ascribe themselves to Islam, is a mushrik exactly like them, because making takfir of them is part of the religion’s foundation (asl ad-din). So the refrainer is like one who worships other than Allah, and he is absolutely one of them in both name and ruling.”

The Second Opinion:

“Takfir is not part of the religion’s foundation (asl ad-din), but is one of its inferred requirements. So the one who refrains from making takfir of mushrikin, who ascribe themselves to Islam, has not disbelieved until the hujjah (evidenced argument) is established against him, all doubts are removed, and all false interpretations are ended.”

The meaning of the term “the religion’s foundation” (asl ad-din) in both opinions is: that by which tawhid is established before the advent of the prophetic proof.

After reviewing what preceded and seeking Allah’s assistance, we say:

The first opinion implies a corrupt concept, because major shirk (shirk akbar) has a reality and description that, if actualized, designates the one who possesses it as a “mushrik.” So if we were to equate the one who refrains from takfir with the one who worshiped other than Allah, then making takfir of the one who refrains from making takfir of the refrainer is absolutely necessitated, since major shirk is not excused by ignorance and the refrainer (according to the first opinion) is a mushrik like the initial person. And the one who refrains thereafter (from making takfir of the refrainer from making takfir of the refrainer) is also a mushrik, and so on.

This is the actual inference – not an imagined understanding – of this opinion’s line of reasoning, which leads to making “chain takfir,” an invalid bid’ah that originates from an incorrect understanding of the texts and that can never be controlled. This opinion is rejected due to the invalidity of its inference.

The second opinion also implies a corrupt concept, as it makes the takfir of the mushrikin like one of the obscure issues (masail khafiyyah), for which it is impossible to establish an evidenced argument and to make takfir of the refrainer as long as he has some doubt (shubhah) or misinterpretation (tawil). The essence of this opinion is the annulment of an agreed upon nullifier of Islam. And the existence of doubt is a passing matter that must be eliminated within any Islamic state that rules by the Shari’ah. As for making this passing matter a foundation upon which rulings are based, then this would result in the annulment of these rulings and the nullification of what it means to manifest the religion. This is in opposition to what is transmitted from the imams of the religion, including the imams of the Najdi da’wah RA.

It is inadmissible to use the terms “asl (foundational basis)” and “lazim (required inference)” regarding the meaning of “la ilaha illallah” and making kufr in taghut in this polemic way. That is because doing so is a fruitless, invented opinion with which Allah did not burden us. Rather, multiple corrupt inferences necessarily result therefrom, like excluding certain matters established by the advent of the prophetic proof from being part of asl ad-din (the religion’s foundation) according to this definition, and thus excluding belief in the prophethood of Muhammad SAWS from asl ad-din! Likewise, it leads to disputation between the mujahidin regarding what is included in the meaning of “asl” (foundation) and what is excluded from it. This is exactly what we warn against. And we strive to prevent this because disagreeing in this dangerous matter will lead to wrongly making tabdi’ and takfir of those who disagree (since the disagreement revolves around tawhid itself). This is unacceptable in the Islamic State, especially since those who are disagreeing are themselves mujahidin for Allah’s cause, those who disbelieved in the tawaghit, made takfir of them, took them as enemies, fought against them, and showed their disavowal from them and their followers.

Shaykh Sulayman Ibn ‘Abdillah Ibn Muhammad Ibn ‘Abdil-Wahhab TA was asked about a similar issue:

(The Sixth Issue: Regarding wala’ and bara’, is such part of the meaning of “la ilaha illallah” or one of its inferred requirements?

The answer is to say that Allah knows best. But it is sufficient for a Muslim to know that Allah made it a duty upon him to take the mushrikin as enemies and to not take them as awliya’, and He made it obligatory to love the believers and to take them as awliya’. He made this a condition of iman, just as He negated the iman of whoever shows love to whoever opposes Allah and His Messenger, even if they were their fathers, sons, brothers, or tribesmen. As for that being part of the meaning of “la ilaha illallah” or one of its inferred requirements, then Allah did not burden us with looking into that. He only burdened us with knowing that Allah made what was mentioned above a duty and obligation, and obligated acting upon so. This is fard and necessary without any doubt. And whoever considers that to be part of its meaning or inferred requirements, then that is fine and an added benefit. But whoever does not consider such, then he is not burdened to do so, especially during an argument or dispute, which leads to something wicked, including disagreement and division between the believers – those who upheld the obligations of iman, waged jihad for the sake of Allah, took the mushrikin as enemies, and took the Muslims as awliya’. Therefore, remaining silent on such matters that lead to division is definitely obligatory. This is what is apparent to me, keeping in mind that the two opinions over which there is a dispute are similar in meaning. And Allah knows best). (Ad-Durar as-Saniyyah fil-Ajwibat an-Najdiyyah (8/166).)

It is unacceptable to use the term “takfir al-‘adhir” (making takfir of the “excuser”) to describe the ruling of the one who refrains from making takfir of mushrikin who ascribe themselves to Islam because it is an inaccurate term.

While we do not accept ignorance as an excuse for major shirk, the innovated opinion of ‘udhr bil-jahl (to excuse the ignorant in their practice of major shirk) does not necessitate that every excuser refrains from making takfir, as there are those of them who might consider ignorance an excuse, but do indeed make takfir of the mushrikin because he considers the proof to have been established against them all, so he is therefore not actually a refrainer.

Just as refraining from making takfir of the mushrikin is not confined to the issue of “al-‘udhr bil-jahl,” it is also quite likely one refrains from making takfir of them out of arrogance, defiance, following desires, or by citing general texts that indicate the merits of “la ilaha illallah.”

So the term “takfir al-‘adhir” does not accurately describe the one who refrains from making takfir of the mushrikin, such a refrainer being whom the people of knowledge meant regarding this nullifier.

The one who refrains from making takfir of the mushrikin who claim to be Muslims commits an agreed upon nullifier, but his kufr is based upon establishment of the proof, unlike the one who worships other than Allah.

Making takfir of the mushrikin is an issue established by apparent, plethoric texts, which all people can understand. Establishing the argument thereof is by the Quran’s advent, by either it being conveyed to the people or them having the ability to reach it. Allah  said, “Say, ‘What thing is greatest in witness?’ Say, ‘Allah is a witness between me and you, and this Quran has been inspired unto me that by it I might warn you and whomever it reaches’” (Al-An’am 19).

The mujaddid Shaykh Muhammad Ibn ‘Abdil-Wahhab RA said, “Know that the evidences for making takfir of the otherwise righteous Muslim who commits shirk with Allah or sides with the mushrikin against the muwahaddin, even if he does not commit shirk, are more than one can compile. They are in the speech of Allah, the words of His Messenger, and the discourses of all people of knowledge.” (Ad-Durar as-Saniyyah (10/8).) Shaykh ‘Abdul-Latif Ibn ‘Abdir-Rahman Ibn Hasan RA said, “It should be said that the Book of Allah, the Sunnah of His Messenger, and the opinions of the people of knowledge are explicit, repeatedly reported, and clearly prove making takfir of anyone who supplicates other than Allah, calling upon someone for something only Allah can do… and the entire Quran demonstrates and confirms this, even coming in different ways and expressions to explain and make note of this.” (Ad-Durar as-Saniyyah (12/190).) Some other scholars of the Najdi da’wah said, “The one who does not make takfir of the mushrikin has not affirmed the Quran, and the Quran has made takfir of the mushrikin and ordered making takfir of them, taking them as enemies, and fighting against them.” (Ad-Durar as-Saniyyah (9/291).)

However, this matter could be obscure regarding some mushrikin who ascribe themselves to Islam. That is due to the spread of ignorance, weakness of da’wah, and circulation of doubts. Here, the proof is established by demonstrating the clear, indicative texts regarding the kufr of these mushrikin. If someone refrains after this clarification is made, he commits kufr. Shaykh Sulayman Ibn ‘Abdillah TA said, “If someone doubts their kufr or is ignorant of their kufr, it is clarified to him using evidences about their kufr from the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger SAWS. After that, if he doubts or hesitates, then he is a kafir according to all of the ‘ulama, since the one who doubts the kufr of a kafir is himself a kafir.” (Ad-Durar as-Saniyyah (8/160).)

But if the matter becomes manifest by the rise of the religion, its voice being raised, and its da’wah being conveyed (as is the case in the Islamic State, may Allah strengthen it), then there is no consideration given to any doubt that would suspend the legal ruling. This is what is known from the imams of guidance like those of the Najdi da’wah who faced this issue and died upon goodness. Some of the imams of the da’wah RA said, “So whoever does not make takfir of the mushrikin of the Ottoman State and the grave worshipers, like the people of Makkah and otherwise, of those who worship righteous people, deviate from the tawhid of Allah to shirk, and replace the Sunnah of His Messenger SAWS with innovations, then he is a kafir just like them, even if he hates their religion, despises them, and loves Islam and the Muslims. For the one who does not make takfir of the mushrikin has not affirmed the Quran, and the Quran has made takfir of the mushrikin and ordered making takfir of them, taking them as enemies, and fighting against them.” (Ad-Durar as-Saniyyah (9/291).)

It is a duty of those who give da’wah and those who seek knowledge inside the Islamic State to warn the people against shirk and falling into it and to warn them against refraining from making takfir of the mushrikin. As part of their duty to warn and convey the message, they must also expose the doubts of those who quarrel in defense of the mushrikin. This is the religion of the Prophets AS and by this the religion becomes manifest.

Shaykh ‘Abdul-Latif Al ash-Shaykh RA said, “Exposing ignorant people to the fundamentals of Islam, the fundamentals of iman, decisive texts, and agreed upon issues by the people of knowledge is a hujjah (established argument) according to the scholars, and by it the proof is made, rulings are put in order, whether the rulings are on apostasy or otherwise; and the Messenger SAWS ordered conveying his message and encouraged it to be done. Regarding establishing proof and giving warning, Allah said in His Book, ‘that by it I might warn you and whomever it reaches’ (Al-An’am 19),” until he (‘Abdul-Latif) RA said, “In total, the argument in every time is made by the people of knowledge, the inheritors of the prophets.” (Misbah adh-Dhalam fir-Radd ‘ala Man Kadhdhab ash-Shaykh al-Imam (1/207).)

The issue of making takfir of the mushrikin being manifest is the default, and we are in a state that rules by the Shari’ah of Allah. It is therefore a compulsory duty upon those who give da’wah therein to warn, convey, employ the legal rulings, and remove whatever became suspended thereof due to doubts. Amongst these rulings is making takfir of whoever refrains from making takfir of the mushrikin who ascribe themselves to Islam. It is not that they should base their actions and da’wah upon the doubts of those who deceptively raise them, making such doubts the foundation, by which they would annul the agreed upon legal ruling, and refuge is with Allah.

We remind our sons, the soldiers of the Islamic State, of the order from Allah and His Messenger SAWS regarding the obligation of listening and obeying those whom Allah has appointed over them, as well as the obligation of uniting and avoiding division, hating one another, and disputation. Allah  said, “And obey Allah and His Messenger and do not dispute lest you fail and your might depart, and have patience. Verily Allah is with the patient” (Al-Anfal 46). And He said, “Verily those who divided their religion and became factions, you have nothing to do with them. Their matter is only up to Allah. Then He will inform them about what they used to do” (Al-An’am 159). And Allah’s Messenger SAWS said, “Shall I tell you about what is better in degree than fasting, prayer, and charity?” They said, “Indeed!” He said, “Rectifying the bond of unity, for verily, ruining the bond of unity is the cutter.” (Reported by at-Tirmidhi, who graded it “hasan sahih.”) In another version, “I do not mean that it cuts hair, but it cuts the religion.” May Allah send blessings upon our prophet Muhammad and upon his family and all of his companions.

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH THE GRACIOUS THE MERCIFUL

All praise is due to Allah. May blessings and peace be upon Allah’s Messenger. To proceed:

Allah SWT said, “And as such We detail the signs, and to make clear the way of the criminals” (Al-An’am 55).

The Organization of al-Qa’idah in Syria (“Jabhat an-Nusrah”) and those with it of militant factions who fight the Islamic State are tawaif mumtani’ah bi-shawkah ‘an tahkim shar’ Allah (groups forcefully resisting the implementation of the Shari’ah of Allah) who have assisted the apostates who aim at establishing a “democratic civic” state of kufr. They fight together in one trench against an Islamic state, which no one doubts rules by the Shari’ah, instigate others to fight against it by all means, and strive to displace its authority from the land, in order to replace the Shari’ah of Allah, which it upholds, with Jahili laws and man-made rulings. All of this is under the cover of the Crusader campaign against the Islamic Khilafah. These nawaqid (nullifiers of Islam) and others have been committed by all of the factions who attribute themselves to the Shari’ah and jihad, while remaining in the camp of the apostates who fight the army of the Khilafah. They did not withdraw and declare their disassociation from them and from their kufr, rather, they entered into their alliances and supported them.

Leaving no room for any doubts, the Islamic State has made the ruling of the Shari’ah regarding these factions clear, that they are apostate groups who have openly committed kufr and whose condition has become apparent, in a way that establishes hujjah (proof) and severs any doubt an ignorant person might have. This includes what is found in the public announcement released by the Delegated Committee as N7-21 on the 8th of Rabi’ Awwal, 1437. As such, it will not be accepted that any of our troops desist from making takfir of these individuals whom we fight and who fight us for the Shari’ah of Allah. Any of them – of the troops of the State – who does not make takfir of these factions and whose case is raised to the emir of his division will be summoned and what is alleged against him will be confirmed, and the condition of these factions will be explained to him if he is ignorant thereof; then, if he abstains (from takfir) after clarification, he will be transferred to the court for istitabah (for the court to demand the soldier’s repentance or otherwise – if he refuses to repent – for him to be punished for apostasy).

The Factions of Deceit & Falsehood

[Translator Note: The following are translations of two official documents stating the official position of the Islamic State regarding the factions of deceit and falsehood – the apostate factions – fighting the Islamic State in the Suburbs of Northern Aleppo. This Shar’i verdict of apostasy on the factions fighting the Islamic State is a famous verdict upon all those who resists the application or implementation of an obligation from the Shari’ah with force, regardless of whether they agree regarding to its obligation or not. And Allah knows best, and He is the source of Success. Contents in [ ] Square Brackets are Translator additions for clarity]

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

All praise belongs to Allah, and May the Blessings and Peace be upon the Messenger of Allah.

After that..

Allah the Most High said: {And thus do We explain the Aayat in detail, that the way of the Mujrimun, may become manifest} [al-An’aam: 55]

Indeed al-Qaeda of Syria (Jabhat an-Nusra) and those who are with it in the camps of the factions that are fighting the Islamic State, they are groups that have resisted with power from Ruling by the rule of Allah and allied with Apostates that are hurrying to establish a Civil Democratic State of Kufr. They are fighting together in the same trench against an Islamic State which no one doubts rules by the Shari’ah. And they are inciting upon fighting it in every way, and they are rushing to uproot its authority from the Earth in order to change the Rule of Allah – by which its rules – with Jahili rule and man-made laws. And [they do] all that under the cover of the Crusader attack against the Islamic Khilafah. This nullifier along with others, have been committed by the groups that attribute themselves to Shari’ah & Jihad and remained in the camps of the Apostates that are fighting the army of the Khilafah. And they have not declared themselves free of them [the apostates] and they have not announced their disavowal from them [apostates] nor their disbelief. On the contrary they have participated in their alliances and sided with them. Darkness, one above another,

And indeed the Islamic State has made it clear with which doesn’t leave any room for any doubter regarding the Shar’ee verdict upon these groups – that they are apostate groups who have announced their disbelief and their situation has become clear by which the Proof (Huhja) establishes and the doubt of all those ignorant of it is cut off with. And from such [a clarification] is the circulation of the “Executive Commission” with the Number (21-7-N) on 8th of Rabee’u al-Awwal 1437. Therefore it would not never be tolerated to find – among our soldiers – anyone who stops short of making Takfeer on individuals among these whom we are fighting against and they are fighting against us regarding the Shari’ah of Allah. And whosoever who appears from them – i.e. from the Soldiers of the State – who doesn’t make Takfeer of these groups, his matter is to be raised to his authorized Amir so that he can be summoned and what is attributed to him is made certain of, and to explain to him the situation of these groups if he is ignorant of them, and if he stops short [of making Takfeer on them] after the explanation, his matter would be referred to court for Istitaabah.

Topic: The Verdict on the Factions that are fighting the State

Indeed all praise belongs to Allah alone, and May the blessings and peace be upon whom there is no prophet after him.

As for what follows:

May Peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be upon you.

Recently we have received some inquiries regarding the official stance of the Islamic State regarding the allied factions that we are fighting in the Suburbs of Northern Aleppo and others besides it, especially the factions that raise Islamic banners and slogans and attribute themselves to Jihad.

And we state to everyone that the stance of the Islamic State is clear regarding the verdict of these factions. And it is that these are groups that have apostataed from the religion of Allah and that they have committed various things that nullify the Aslu Deen [basis/origin/fundamental of the religion]. And from that is: fighting a state that rules by the Shari’ah of Allah while being in the same trench and same alliance as the factions that have refrained from ruling by the Shari’ah, and announced that they are rushing to build a “Pluralistic Civil Democratic” State which would up-root the Rule of Allah from the lands of the Islamic State and change it with Jahili laws. And all of that under the direct observation and cover of the Crusader Assault which is led by America for the purpose of destroying the project of the Khilafah. Allah the most High says:

{ And it has already been revealed to you in the Book (this Quran) that when you hear the Verses of Allah being denied and mocked at, then sit not with them, until they engage in a talk other than that; (but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be like them. Surely, Allah will collect the hypocrites and disbelievers all together in Hell} [an-Nisa : 140]

And this is the verdict of Allah regarding those who sat with the disbelievers and didn’t leave them or reject upon them their disbelief and their mockery at the Aayat of Allah. Then what about those who fight with them, and ally them, and help them against the Muslims who rule the land of Allah with what he has revealed? So this is a clear verdict which we do not doubt therein.  And it is based upon clearly seen realities which are not affected by false Ta’weels and claims that belie the reality.

We ask Allah to repel the plans of the disbelievers and to disperse their strength and to split their gathering and give victory to the Islamic State over them.

And may Allah reward you all with the best.

On the Kufr of the Soldiers of Jabhat al-Jawlani

Straight Talk

On the Kufr of the Soldiers of Jabhat al-Jawlani

STRAIGHT

By Ibn ‘Ata’ al-Muhajir

The Prophet (s’ws) said, “I am only human and litigants come to me. It might be that some of you are more eloquent than others, so I consider him to be truthful and rule in his favor. So if I rule in someone’s favor and he takes what rightfully belongs to a Muslim, then it is truly only a piece of fire. Let him take it or leave it.” (Al-Bukhārī, Muslim)

This is the Messenger of Allah, the one about whom Allah (t) said, {He does not speak from desire. It is only revelation inspired.} (An-Najm: 3-4) This is the Prophet of Allah, who said of himself, “There is no prophet after me,” (Al-Bukhārī, Muslim) which is understood by consensus to mean that revelation ceased to be inspired to mankind after the death of Muhammad ibn ‘Abdillah (s’ws).

This is the one to whom Allah revealed the most magnificent miracle mankind has ever known, the noble Qur’an. Yet he was “only human,” who attested for himself the inability to read the hearts of men. Rather, he affirmed that all people are to be taken at face value, judged according to their apparent situation, as their hidden secrets and intentions are left to be judged by Allah alone.

If this is the case with Allah’s Messenger (s’ws), then how about those who came after him, those who neither received revelation nor perfected their collection and authentication of all the recorded narrations from the prophetic era?! No matter how knowledgeable of the religion one may be, he will never reach the level of the Prophet. Despite that and the clear fact based on the above evidences that the Prophet (s’ws) judged people at face value, we find people today giving excuses to those who commit blatant kufr! An important example of this is that some Muslims invalidly excuse the soldiers of Jabhat al-Jawlani for the kufr they collectively commit. Even if their existed for them some hidden excuse—meaning ikrah, which is extremely unlikely, if not impossible, of armed men—we must follow the prophetic example and judge them in this life according to their apparent actions, leaving their secrets for Allah to reveal on the Day of Judgment.

‘A’ishah i narrated that Allah’s Messenger (s’ws) said, “An army will raid the Ka’bah. When they reach an open desert, the first of them and the last of them will be consumed by the earth.” At this, the Mother of the Believers asked, “O Messenger of Allah, how could the first of them and the last of them be consumed by the earth, while in their midst there are their common people and those who are not actually part of them?” He replied, “The first of them and the last of them will be consumed by the earth, then they will be resurrected and judged based on their intentions.” (Al-Bukhārī, Muslim)

It is thus the sunnah of Allah to punish groups of criminals along with those who are with them, as the innocent among them are not distinguished in this life, but will be dealt with on an individual basis when they are resurrected.

Jabhat al-Jawlani is a criminal gang of riddah, having claimed Islam while committing blatant kufr. They control land yet do not rule by what Allah revealed; they enter into alliances with the disbelievers against the believers; and they fight against the Islamic State in order to replace the Shari’ah with human law, whether by merely setting Allah’s law to the side and ruling by their whims, or by allowing their democratic allies to rule instead. Despite this, they deceive many Muslims into believing that they are an organization of mujahidin fighting for the cause of Allah. Their banner is black and bears the kalimah of tawhid; their men grow beards; their women wear niqab; and their scholars speak with the language of jihad, announcing their support for the Shari’ah and their goal of its establishment. However, the reality is far from that stated goal.

In the areas they control, they have established a court system to give the impression of law and order. However, that law is not the law of Islam, but rather varies from one qadi’s whim to anothers. Lands held by Jawlani’s troops remain void of Allah’s law, intentionally and proudly not upholding the hudud, even though they once faced virtually no local opposition to their presence. Effectively, their judges are tawaghit, pushing aside the Shari’ah of Allah and thus taking for themselves the right to rule, which belongs only to Allah, and for their cause is exactly what the soldiers of Jabhat al-Jawlani fight, {and those who disbelieve fight for the cause of taghut.} (An-Nisā: 76)

When confronted with the issue of upholding the hudud, the shar’iyyin of the Jabhah erroneously claim that the hudud are not applied in Dar al-Harb. This statement is a self-proclamation of kufr! How could “mujahidin for the cause of Allah” who have captured some land, having removed the taghut’s control over it, still consider that area Dar al-Harb, which is synonymous with Dar al-Kufr?!

They have allied with the Free Syrian Army, under which other organized militant groups have united with the publicly stated goal of establishing a secular democratic state. This alliance is for no reason but to fight against their common enemy, the soldiers of the Khilafah. Allah said, {Believers must not take disbelievers as allies against believers. Whoever does that has nothing to do with Allah.} (Āl ‘Imrān: 28) At-Tabari said, commenting on this ayah, “He is free of Allah and Allah is free of him, due to his apostasy from His religion and his entrance into kufr.” (At-Tafsīr) Allah also said, {Inform the munafiqin that theirs is a painful torment, those who take disbelievers as allies against believers. Do they seek honor with them? For verily, all honor belongs to Allah,} (An-Nisā: 139) and similarly, {O you who believe, do not take disbelievers as allies against believers! Do you want to make for Allah a clear case against yourselves? Verily the munafiqin are in the lowest level of the Fire, and you will never find a supporter for them.} (An-Nisā: 144) Indeed, as today they support and are supported, the munafiqin known as Jabhat al-Jawlani will have no support tomorrow as they burn, as Allah wills, in the lowest level of the Fire.

Another blatant display of their kufr is that they fight the only government on earth implementing the hukm of Allah in order to replace it with manmade, whimsical law. Fighting against the Islamic State is not in and of itself kufr, as it could happen that incorrect ijtihad might lead to an internal conflict between Muslims. But even in a case like that (called baghy), both sides establish the Shari’ah when given the opportunity. Allah said, {And if two factions of believers engage in combat, then reconcile between them. Then if one of them transgresses against the other, then fight those who transgress until they return to the command of Allah.} (Al-Ḥujurāt: 76) Jabhat al-Jawlani, on the other hand, has repeatedly shown their unwillingness to implement the hukm of Allah. So their war against the Islamic State is not an effort to simply right a perceived wrong, but to remove the currently implemented Shari’ah and replace it with human law. This is even clearer when one looks to those with whom al-Jawlani has allied, who very openly and without shame declare their democratic intentions to establish a secular state.

Every soldier in the American military is a kafir, even if there are among them Muhammads of Palestinian origin. Likewise, every soldier in the Saudi military is a kafir, even if some of them have blood brothers in the Islamic State. With absolutely no difference, as all are fighting for the cause of taghut, every soldier in Jabhat al-Jawlani is a kafir, no matter his outward appearance or professed love for Islam. How different the soldiers of Allah are from the soldiers of Shaytan, for truly {those who believe fight for the cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve fight for the cause of taghut.} (An-Nisā: 76)

Those who stubbornly remain in the ranks of al-Jawlani’s front almost always do so because of taqlid, which is to follow human opinion over divine revelation. When presented with Allah’s clear proofs against His enemies, including Jabhat al-Jawlani, the deluded Jawlanites respond, “The shaykh said […],” quite often referring to al-Qa’idah “scholars” living comfortably in Dar al-Kufr. Allah said, {Follow what was revealed to you from your Lord and do not follow besides Him any awliyā,} (Al-A‘rāf: 3) i.e. anyone, no matter how close they are to you. How can they follow any modern scholars after knowing that Allah’s Messenger (s’ws) said, “Verily Allah does not seize knowledge by stripping it from His slaves, but He seizes knowledge by seizing scholars, until when He leaves no scholar, the people will take ignorant heads. They will be asked and give fatwas without knowledge, so they will be misguided and will misguide others.” (Al-Bukhārī, Muslim) “Knowledge” does not mean mere information, nor the ability to sit in a classroom for a few years. Knowledge consists of evidences from the Qur’an and Sunnah. This is clear in the oft-misinterpreted ayah, {So ask the people of the dhikr if you do not know,} (An-Naḥl: 43) i.e. ask the people of the Qur’an and Sunnah; and you do not ask a people for something other than what they are known to have. So the people of the dhikr should be asked for the dhikr itself, not their personal opinions.

These mindless muqallidin question Allah’s intent while remaining silent to the contradictory claims of their shar’iyyin, while Allah said, {He is not asked about what He does, but they are asked.} (Al-Anbiyā’: 23) Indeed, {they took their scribes and ascetics as lords beside Allah.} (Barā‘ah: 31) Do they presume they will be not be questioned about their blind adherence to these shar’iyyin, and that they alone will bear the responsibility of anyone who follows them? Certainly not, as {no bearer bears the burden of another.} (Al-Anām: 164) But, indeed, these shar’iyyin shall receive their punishment, along with the punishment of those they led astray. {He said, “For each will get double (the punishment).”} (Al-A‘rāf: 38).

A muqallid uses taqlid when he considers himself too ignorant to base his own opinion on evidence, doubting his own ability to understand a topic. As such, making taqlid in matters of tawhid is to affirm oneself as being ignorant of Allah’s tawhid and as having doubts on how to understand the most basic principle of the religion. Since tawhid is the foundational principle of the din, ignorance of tawhid necessitates the absence of din. Therefore, taqlid due to ignorance in matters of asl ad-din is never an excuse for a person who slips thereby into kufr.

Regarding those who made taqlid in matters of tawhid, following their beloved leaders and elders to the point of committing kufr, Allah said, {Verily Allah cursed the disbelievers and prepared for them an inferno, eternally therein forever. They will not find any ally or supporter; on a day their faces are turned over in the Fire, saying, “O, if only we obeyed Allah and the Messenger! Our Lord, verily we obeyed our leaders and elders, so they misled us from the path!”} (Al-Aḥzāb: 64-67) How close the modern muqallidin are to those who disbelieved afore, {And when it is said to them, “Follow what Allah revealed,” they say, “Rather, we follow what we found our fathers thereon.”} (Al-Baqarah: 170)

Some brothers and sisters have assumed that the official stance of the Islamic State on this matter is one of refrain, in that the condition of these JN soldiers is doubtful, so they are neither deemed Muslims nor kuffar. Others think the Islamic State considers only the leaders of Jawlani’s front as apostates and that the soldiers are not accountable for their commanders’ kufr. Still others think it is a matter of actively fighting against the Islamic State, and that as long as a member of JN refrains from the physical fight, he is excused and retains his status as a Muslim. They base these misunderstandings on ambiguous “sources”, whether via the words of a supposed soldier of the Khilafah or those of a “munasir” outside the lands of Islam.

No statement from any munasir, soldier, administrator, or even emir is deemed official unless it is conveyed through one of the Islamic State’s official media channels including, but not necessarily limited to, Dābiq and النبأ.

The apostasy of Jabhat al-Jawlani, from its top leaders to its lowest elements, has been dealt with repeatedly through official Islamic State literature. For example, in Dābiq, one can find this matter dealt with in

  • Issue 2, “The Flood of the Mubāhalah;”
  • Issue 6, “The Qā’idah of adh-Dhawāhirī;”
  • Issue 7, “Dozens of ‘Nusrah’ and ‘Ahrār’ Fighters Repent and Join the Islamic State;”
  • Issue 8, “The Allies of al-Qā’idah in Shām” and “Irjā’ – The Most Dangerous Bid’ah;”
  • Issue 9, “The Allies of al-Qā’idah in Shām: Part II,” “Harvesting the Sahwah,” and “In the Words of the Enemy;”
  • Issue 10, “The Allies of al-Qā’idah in Shām: Part III,” “They Are Not Lawful Spouses for One Another,” “The Laws of Allah or the Laws of Men,” “In the Words of the Enemy,” and “Interview with Abū Samīr al-Urdunī;”
  • Issue 11, “The Allies of al-Qā’idah in Shām: Part 4” and “From the Battle of al-Ahzāb to the War of Coalitions;” and
  • Issue 12, “The Allies of al-Qā’idah in Yemen,” “The Allies of al-Qā’idah in Shām: The End,” and “In the Words of the Enemy.”
  • Issue 14, “The Murtadd Brotherhood.”

If there is still some doubt on this matter, then know that each member of Jabhat al-Jawlani, whether or not he fought against the Islamic State, is required to undergo an istitābah course, which means he must repent from the kufr in which he was engaged. Part of that course is his personal admission that he was indeed an apostate.

The soldiers of Jabhat al-Jawlani are kuffar. They are munafiqin who have blatantly committed kufr, so their ruling is that of the murtaddin. They cause mischief on the earth and should be shown no mercy unless they repent before they are apprehended. Their dead are fuel for Jahannam. As a matter of iman, Muslims who are aware of this clear ruling (of their kufr) must make takfir of them and thus establish their bara’ah from them. They are not to be taken as friends, and they are certainly not brothers, as {only believers are brothers.} (Al-Ḥujurāt: 10)

{And Allah prevails over His affair, but most people do not know.}

The Humiliating Truce

By Shaykh Hussain bin Mahmood (May Allah preserve him)Dated : 3rd Rajab 1437H.

The truce that has occurred between the Nusayris and the “moderate” Resistance factions is not a truce as is in the known Shar’ee meaning nor as in the known customary meaning. On the contrary, it is only a great treason against the religion, thereafter a treason against the Muslims. Consecutive events have made apparent what was behind this truce – matters due to which a man would be astonished at the fact that some people could not perceive these results when it was so clear!!

“Moderate Groups” that were “vetted” by the American Defence Ministry so that it can play its role using these groups in realizing the goals of the Crusaders in the lands of Sham – these [groups] are those who are relied upon in fighting the Islamic State and other Jihadi groups. For every group that was not “vetted” or did not pass the American “vetting”, they are not moderate in the view of America, and they would be fought by America sooner or later..

Indeed from the amazing things in this war: are the terms that the enemies of Allah, (the Most High) have named their allies and their enemies with. The Russian newspapers have described Bashar as the (ذيل الكلب) “Dog’s tail”, and this dog is Putin. As for the Moderate Syrian Groups or “Vetted Syrian Opposition” its acronym in English is “VSO” and in Arabic it is (فسو) [the Arabic letters Faaf, Seen and Waw – connect to form a word which means ‘silent fart’], and I remember that I had written an old article regarding the “Sahawat of ‘Iraq” and in it I had said that they are “Faswaat” (Silent Farts) and not Sahawat (Awakening). And here is the American administration – with much appreciation – attesting to this description upon their proxies. . And they have given the acronym of “ISIS” to the Islamic State, and from the meanings of “IS” in the English language is “remaining”, and this is from the slogans of the supporters of the Islamic State: “Remaining, Remaining”. So in the language of the Disbelievers: Bashar is the “Dog’s tail”, and their moderate proxies are “silent farts”, and the Islamic State is “Remaining Remaining”. {And they plot and Allah plots [against their plots]}

As for the truce, those who are following the events would reach to a conclusion which could almost reach the level of certainty that the conspirators have agreed upon surrendering “Aleppo” to the Nusayris in exchange for the VSO’s to remain in the North West, in order to stop the Kurds from expanding who are fighting Turkey. And the only obstacle in all of this is the “Islamic State” which is being fought by all of these groups under the shadows of the American, Russian, Nusayri Jets so that they can push it away from the North West of Sham by which the stage-wise goals of the truce can be realized.

The hurtful sadness in this matter is that there may be soldiers in these groups who are sincere in their fight who wish to raise the banner of their religion. However their leaders have misguided them with these agreements and meetings from which they are earning millions of dollars when these soldiers themselves are dying for interests other than that of the religion. And we have seen some recordings of the commanders of the “Al Saud Army” which is falsely called “The Army of Islam” (Jaysh al-Islam), who were inciting the “conscience” of the commoners upon fighting the Islamic State by which that they can be safe from Bashar’s bombing. So they chose to fight the Muslims over fighting the disbelievers. What an evil view this is! And what an evil man who said it! And O’ the grief over who believes in it..

And more painful than that and more anguishing to the soul is that we see the brothers in “al-Qaeda” fighting the Islamic State along with the VSO groups!! May Allah have mercy on Usamah bin Laden who dragged America to fight in the region to deplete them, how can their successors find it in themselves to fight the Mujahideen along with groups that are funded by “Al Saud” by command and counsel of America!! What kind of succession is this for this Jihadi Shaykh,, and what kind of following is this on his views, counsel and plans!! Is it logical that the leaders of “al-Qaeda” are this naïve? Wherein they are still not able to grasp the reality of this war and the reality of the craftiness and deception in it, and the reality of these groups, and the reality of the Islamic State!! And if the problem is with the leaders of the Mujahideen, then we fear that this is a dispute over the world, and lack of sincerity. And even if what had happened earlier were Fitnas (tribulations) and infighting; the matter is much simpler, and reconciling is better, and unity is a matter from the Qur’an, and all of the goodness is in the one who first starts with the greeting of Salaam.

The Islamic State has become a current reality which doesn’t have room to be overlooked. And today, it is they who are commandeering the helm of Jihad in the world against the enemies of the religion. And it has proven itself capable of perseverance, and that it is sincere to its religion, and that it is terrifying from a perspective, and that it is the most suitable and capable among all these groups in the Islamic battlefields on leading the Muslims. So overlooking all of this is not in the interests of the Ummah. And it is upon the leaders of the Jihadi groups in the world to realize this very well because this is a historic opportunity with which they can rise up with the Ummah. And uniting the ranks of the Mujahideen today would create a military entity for the Muslims from all the way from Eastern Turkestan to Morocco. And this can be made a reality if a handful of men agree upon it today. A handful of men can unite the Mujahideen in the world and form a terrifying Military might.. These men could themselves be the reason for a calamity for the Ummah – may Allah forbid it – if they lengthened in their own temptations, and didn’t return to their senses, and didn’t bring the interest of their Ummah over their own personal interests or the interests of their groups, organizations and pieces of lands..

Whoever who can deliver these words to the individuals of the fighting groups in Sham, then let them do so, for it is from a heart full of anguish over the state of the youth of the Muslims:

 

  • Indeed, Fighting would not be a Jihad unless it is only in the path of Allah to make His Word the highest. Fighting would not be a Jihad if it is for the sake of a group, or a faction or a person or a nation, or a banner that doesn’t wish to implement the Shari’ah of Allah or goes against the belief of al-Wala wa al-Bara and the belief of love and hate for the sake of Allah, or if these obligations were made the deposit of the Referendum.
  • Fighting the Muslims: is a fitna (tribulation) and it can even be a transgression [or rebellion] .. And fighting the disbelievers, that is the Jihad in the path of Allah – which is mentioned in the Qur’an and Sunnah – if the intention is purified. So let not one of us destroy his life in a tribulation wherein his end is not known after it ends..
  • Any group that fights the Muslims under the banner of America or Russia or the apostate Kurds or the Nusayris or the Rawaafid, those are groups of disbelief and apostasy. And I do not know any difference of opinion regarding this among the Scholars of the Salaf.
  • The funding by the Arabian states to the groups is not done except by the command of America, and this is a matter that is known to everyone. So it is from the lies upon one’s own self to justify it to be aid given for the countenance of Allah, or due to an intertwinement of the same interests. This is because America doesn’t allow anything except what is in its best interest. So use your minds..
  • These Arabian states are warring against Allah and His messenger and those who believed. It was they who lit the counter-revolutions by which they killed the Muslims and ripped the honour of the Muslim women. And whoever who thought that these people have diverted from their war upon the religion, such is more misguided than the donkey in his house. Their remaining in their seats (power) is only secured by fighting against Islam.
  • Every group that America has labelled to be moderate, such is closer to apostasy. And the groups that the Americans have stamped to be VSO’s, are included in this..
  • It is not permissible according to Shari’ah to fight against the Islamic State today, especially in Aleppo. And that is because the meaning of surrendering the city of Aleppo the Nusayris means the killing of the Muslims in it and tearing apart their honour. So anyone who takes a share in distancing the Islamic State from the areas of Aleppo, such is in reality taking a share in surrendering it (Aleppo) to the Nusayris
  • It is not permissible according to Shari’ah to agree upon the humiliating truce because it is not a truce in reality. And the Russians and Nusayris have not ceased bombing the Muslims since the truce was signed. And the intention of the truce was only: to free the Nusayris and the Russians to fight the Islamic State: The Nusayris have pulled back its soldiers from the coast. And the Russians saved a lot of money and effort by concentrating bombing the areas of the Islamic State. And they employed the VSO groups to fight the Islamic State instead of using its own soldiers whom they are saving to fight the “Moderates” after repelling the Islamic State from the surroundings of Aleppo. And the Nusayris require their soldiers to consolidate the power in their desired state in the west of Sham.
  • This truce has proved that these groups have agreed upon surrendering all of the regions in the coast till Daraa to the Nusayris. And We have said – since the start of the revolution – that the Western Crusaders and the Jews wants to create a Nusayri state in the west of Sham to protect the borders of the Jews..
  • It is not permissible for one who believes in Allah and the Last Day to remain even for a single minute under a blind banner when it is able to join an Islamic banner. Indeed, the banners of Patriotism is blind, and the banner of Partisan is blind, and the banners of Nationalism is blind. This is leaving aside the banner of America that is hidden on the other side of an enslaved curtain showing the Arabian aid. All of these are blind ignorant (Jahili) banners. It is not permissible to fight under them when there is an Islamic banner.

Today, The Islamic State is the one that is most vexatious to the enemies of Allah. And it is the most infuriating for the disbelievers. And the application of Allah’s Shari’ah is apparent in its borders. And it has announced the establishment of Allah’s Shari’ah totally simply with conquering of a village or city without any reservation or delay. And the Muslims in their borders are safe except for the French, Nusayri, Arabian, Crusader bombing. And if I were to advice the brothers in these groups I would have definitely advised them to join the Islamic State. And this advice doesn’t contain in it any self-inclination or partisanship. And it is only an advice which would be asked about from the one who gave it on the Day of Judgement. And if I knew a better banner than theirs in the field, I would have advised to it without any hesitation.. And whoever refuses: then let him choose Jabhat an-Nusra, but do not obey its leaders regarding fighting the Islamic State, for “There is no obedience in a sin”

Indeed the decisive factor is in the meanings and not in the constructions. I.e. the decisive factor in the Shari’ah is based on realities and on what is happening. And it is not based on statements and terminologies. So the saying that this humiliation and this shame is a truce, such is a shameful saying which is not correct, and far removed from the reality. This is a treason in which the lands of the Muslims would be surrendered to the Nusayris by command of the Crusaders. And everyone are participants in these big meetings even if their interests differ.

And it is from the ways of playing about with the Shari’ah, that some of them say that seeking aid of Turkey is permissible. And what they mean by this is: getting the aid of turkey in Sham against the Islamic State!! And we say to them:

  1. Why are you not seeking aid from Turkey against the Nusayri’s or the Russians or the Americans or the Iranians!!
  2. Who is the one benefitting from Turkeys intervention in the war and their fight against the Islamic State!!
  3. Is this really seeking aid? Who is the one commandeering the worldwide alliance? And under which banner is Turkey fighting? Are they fighting independently or as a participant of the International Crusader Alliance?

Turkey has opened its airports to the Crusader alliance who are bombing the Muslims in ‘Iraq and Sham. So it is only a part from this alliance lead by America. The Saying that some of the groups are seeking aid from Turkey outside of this alliance is a rejected saying. The Turkish army has not ceased in announcing its secularity and their grasp on the methodology of the son of the Jewish woman ata-Turk, the enemy of Islam and the Muslims. So would a Muslim take aid from one who announces his secularity to fight those who announce their Islam and implement the Shari’ah of Allah in their lands!! (If so) what is the difference in seeking aid from Turkey compared to seeking aid from France or Britain or America!! They all announce their secular nature!!

Let those – who are misguiding the youth of the Ummah, and making them fuel for the war to realise the interests of the Crusaders, Jews, Nusayris and the Rawaafid – let them fear Allah! For this truce and these accusations against the Islamic State to be Khawaarijs at one time and at another that they are proxies, and fighting against it under the shadows of the Crusader jets, and attempting to strengthen the Nusayris over the lands of the Muslims by trying to keep the forces of the Islamic state from reaching the borders close enough to touch them, all of this points to the fact that some have sold their religion for a meagre price, and that they have paid the price of this deal with the blood and corpses of their soldiers whom they have betrayed.

It is necessary for these soldiers to consider the matter of their own selves. And it is necessary for them not to throw themselves in to destruction with their own hands. For what end awaits them: if they are not killed by the soldiers of the Islamic State today, then they would be killed by the Americans tomorrow. And they would be sold out by these leaders like how they sold their case [this matter]. . It is only one soul, and only one death. Thereafter it is either Heaven or Hell. So how would one who fights the Mujahideen meet Allah while they fight to strengthen the Nusayri’s and the Christians – the enemies of the religion – with the claim that their brothers are Khawarijs or proxies, while they know in their own selves that they are not like that and when he sees the Crusader jets passing them by overheard only to bomb the soldiers of the State after which he and his leaders proceed forward under the protection of these jets!! What kind of Jihad is this, and what sort of mind is this that has not grasped the reality still!!

So let everyone know that if Aleppo falls, then the VSO groups, those were the ones who surrendered it to the Nusayris. And they would see in the following days that the battle intensifying around Aleppo and inside it after the Nusayris secure it from the threat of the soldiers of the Islamic State. And be certain that the VSO groups would have their backs burnt.. We hold all of the fighters who participated in fighting the Islamic State responsible for what is happening in Aleppo. The matters have become clear. And the undesirable stench of the truce has started to rise above the surface of the events. And there is no excuse for anyone after these events for believing in these groups treacherous to Islam and Muslims. So let some rectify their own selves. And let them stand by their brothers in the State against this imminent danger. For the intention of the war is every Muslim. And it is not just aimed at one group or one Muslim faction leaving the others besides it.

I ask Allah the Most High to guide the people of Islam in Sham to what has goodness and benefit for the Ummah. And to unite them and join their ranks and not to test them in their religion, and to save them from the plot of the plotters and the deception of the deceivers and the treason of the treacherous…

 

And Allah knows best… May the blessings of Allah and peace be upon our prophet Muhammad, his household and his companions.

The Journey of The Sahwat – Part 2

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The date is December the 25th, 2014, 5 groups merge & create a new group called “al-Jabhat al Shamiya” / The Sham/Levant Front.

image

The groups that are participating are: Army of ‘Mujahedin’, ‘Islamic’ Front (See Part one), Fastaqim Kama Umirt,  Authenticity and Development Front & Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki.

Lets rewind the date to 2014-01-03 the day before the Sahwa “Awakening”

Army of ‘Mujahedin’ releases a statement waging war on Dawlah, groups that is included are some FSA groups & future Levant Front groups, Zinki Movement & Fastaqim Kama Umirt

image

As i mentioned in part one, ‘Islamic’ Front was also part of the ‘Awakening’ war, that counts up to four groups of the Levant Front that participated in the Sahwa war.

Harakat Nour al-Din al-Zenki

The strongest group in Aleppo because of the weapon supplies they receive from USA. They are not shy to put their TOWs on show.

Zinki movement said in late 2014 that they are working with the coalition for the benefit of the syrian people.

The leader of Zinki says the goal of this coalition (USA, UK, Qatar, UEA, KSA, Jordan, Turkey & 50 other kufr countries) is to bring down Assad & the state of Baghdadi.

Authenticity and Development Front

This group is extremely loyal to Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (who was part of the US coalition long before their war on Dawlah, the drone that killed Anwar al Awlaki RH lifted from KSA, they have been part of the war against Sh Usama RH aswell)

When King Kong of Saudi died, ADF released a statement mourning him, may Allah raise them with him & make their destination the same as the murtadd king.

image

Levant Front

The date is 5th April 2015, do you know what day that is? It is the day of Easter, the day where the mushrikeen celebrates the “resurrection” of Jesus (AS) a day they remind themselves of the power of “the son of God” (I seek refuge in Allah).

Any believer would disassociate himself from those who celebrate a day like that, especially when that day is present.

Instead Levant Front knocks the door of the christians with gifts, eggs, which is a symbol of the “empty tomb of Jesus (AS)”. Levant front addresses the christians as brothers and congratulates & ARE HAPPY FOR THEM on this shirk day, they day the christians reminds themselves of something Allah SWT said in the noble Quran:

And they say, “The Most Merciful has taken [for Himself] a son.”  You have done an atrocious thing. The heavens almost rupture therefrom and the earth splits open and the mountains collapse in devastation. That they attribute to the Most Merciful a son. And it is not appropriate for the Most Merciful that He should take a son. {19:88-92}

image

US-backed Hazm-movement, after dissolving joined Levant Front.

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 (the freedom to apostate from your religion freely)

Levant Front says that the rebels (and themselves) have agreed upon Geneva I & II decisions

PS. They also thank the coalition which they address as “friends”, Saudia, Qatar, Turkey & all other countries.

YPG & Levant Front

The 5th of February 2015, Levant Front agreed to make an alliance with the YPG.

image

The three points in the statement:

1. Unifying the executive authorities of both parties to include all courts & to rule with the Sharia of Allah

2. Open an office in dawah- and sharia- purpose for both parties and follow up on the issues of mosques, including the Friday prayer in Aleppo, & Arifin & its surrounding villages

3. Pursuing the corrupters (Dawlah & the Regime)  wherever they are & making them face trial in order to give back the rights to their people. And to ensure that there is safety and security in the liberated areas that these that have signed this agreement have been part of

Fun fact: YPG are atheists.

Turkey declares war on Dawlah

Just like their sahwat brothers from the ‘Islamic’ Front, the Levant Front hurried to show their full support not only to the secular attaturks, but to the other coalition countries aswell, on their war against Dawlah.

image

Now what the sahwat & their ‘ulema’ wants you to believe, who only the blind followers & the simple minded ignorant fools would believe, is that they are only SEEKING AID from Turkey against the bughat (transgressors/oppressors), only a very small percentage of the ulema has allowed this, but those who allowed it put forth conditions:

1. You need to have the upper-hand over the kuffar you are SEEKING AID from, military.

2. The goal needs to be Sharia.

3. They can’t have their own flag/raise their flag.

The sahwat does not meet ANY of the conditions. Because firstly they do not have the military upper-hand over Turkey & secondly they do not seek to implement Sharia because the area liberated from Dawlah is to be made into a “safe zone”, a plan put forth by USA, and thirdly Turkey raise & have their own secular/nationalistic flag.

More importantly, this is NOT an issue of SEEKING AID

This is from Ahrars official statements viewing this as an alliance & not seeking help. They see Turkey as the most important ally of the Syrian revolution.

image

If it was, then Turkey would have declared war on Dawlah on behalf of the sahwat like sahwat claim it to be. To seek aid, the second party has to accept your request to aid you.

Turkey waged war on Dawlah ONLY BECAUSE USA ORDERED IT, and Turkey only obeyed because they say “La ilaha illa Amrika” & surrendered to their will & plans to drive out Dawlah, for the moment, only in north of Syria & later in time, from the face of the earth, we seek refuge in Allah from that to happen & may Allah protect the Islamic State & give them victory over the enemies of Allah.

So however you look at it, the sahwat IS THE ONE HELPING the kuffar of Attaturks over MUSLIMS & NOT SEEKING AID FROM THEM.

And it is IJMA’ (consensus) of the sahaba & ALL the ulema that the one who aids a kufr nation over Muslims, whether the muslims are khawarij, bughat or ghulat, then he is a kafir, murtadd.

Ibn Hazm (ر) said after quoting this ayah (5:51),

“If you give them a cup of water you are a kafir.”

Ibn Taymiyyah (ر) said:

“Anybody who supports the kuffar on their kufr or against Muslims, they are kafir.”

And lets not forget to quote the leader of the mujahedeen of this era, sheikh Usama bin Laden (ر):

“If you support the kuffar only with a word then you have committed riddah(appostasy).”

The Issue of Jabhat al Nusra In This Soup

image

It’s these filthy sahwat that Maqdisi & Abu Qatada along with 7 other “ulema” issued a fatwa that everyone is obliged to protect & call them “mujahideen” after Dawlah made a huge offensive on them in Sawran north of Aleppo.

Dawlah burns the flag of Levant Front in Sawran BEFORE the misguided ulema issue a fatwa to attack them & defend the “mujahideen brothers” of Levant Front

image

Dawlah sent an istishhadi, may Allah accept him, to a headquarter of the Levant Front, everyone was surprised except Dawlah, that a Nusra commander was among the cassualties, may Allah judge him accordingly.

Levant Front confirms that Nusra Front surrenders ALL their fronts in north Syria to them, so that they can aid Turkey in their war against Dawlah for their own benefits. Remember what Ibn Hazm (ر) said about a cup of water, well here we have Nusra Front handing over whole headquarters to aid their kufr.

Dawlah made an offensive & took over Talalain from Levant Front. Now Nusra Front said they retreated from all the fronts claiming it is impermissible to participate in this war & they called the rebels aiding Turkey “the ground troops of the Coalition”, attacked Dawlah after they took over Talalain.

They lied, surprised? No.

image

Even if Nusra Fronts officially said it is impermissible, one of Nusra Fronts main shar3i, Abo Hassan al Kuwaiti said it is permissible

I will finish this with a reminder that Turkey’s war on Dawlah is USA’s war on Dawlah & anyone who supports them in any shape or form is a kafir.

And that Turkey & Erdogan is a kufr nation.

سُبْحَانَكَ اللَّهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ

The Journey Of The Sahwat – Part 1

By Our brother : Mustafa Al Irāqi

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The date is November the 22nd, 2013, 6 groups merge & creates a new group called “al-Jabhat al-Islāmiyyah” / The ‘Islamic’ Front.

image

The groups that is participating is: Ansar al Sham, Liwa ‘Haqq’, Ahrar Sham, Liwa ‘Tawhid’, Suqour ash Sham, Jaish al ‘Islam’

image

Al-Qaida’s response to this newly formed group:

Dhawahiri sent a letter to Jowlani &
ordered him & the whole Jabhat Al Nusra to join The ‘Islamic’ Front.

Abū Samīr al-Urdunī former member of Jowlanis shura council said that Jowlani disobeyed because of Zahran Alloush & his Army of ‘Islam’ & would only join if they leave.

Sh Suleiman al Alwan (may Allah hasten his release) who was a fan of Ahrar ash Sham, as all was before the ‘sahwa’, warned Ahrar ash Sham leader not to join/be a part of this new formed group & threatened he would record a statement against them if they did.

And his reason was: Zahran Alloush.(watch “Ahrar al-Sham Betrayed Sh. Sulayman al-Alwan Twice”)

Ahrar did join The ‘Islamic’ Front regardless of Alwans threats & his statements never got recorded, why? Because he was imprisoned by KSA(Kingdom Of Saudi Arabia). Now why would KSA do that? Because when The ‘Islamic’ Front was created, 70 – KSA – “shuyukh” & “tulab al ilm” backed this group & called for everyone to join it, & what good is there in ‘ulama’ from KSA favoring a group except that the crusaders will follow? KSA knows Alwan is a very influential man on jihadist youths & he threatened this plan of sahwat, he also refused to take back his takfir on Āal salūl, that’s why they imprisoned him. (List of those Shuyukh). Back then this was not a problem, because the enemy was still the regime, so everyone hid this under the table.

2014-01-04 the date ALL sahwat supporters have deleted from their calendars & minds

The fourth of January The ‘Islamic’ Front back-stabbed Dawlah in Halab/Aleppo.

They also attacked Dawlah in Raqqah the same day. Only in the first week 500-1000 from Dawlah got shahada including Abu Usama al Maghribi (رحمهم الله).

February: Jabhat Al Nusra joins the ‘Islamic’ Front & fights & drives Dawlah out of Deir ez Zour.

After these events the lies that Dawlah refused Allah’s judgment started to spread like virus. The Sahwat had conditions & Dawlah had conditions:

⭕ Sahwats condition was that Dawlah leaves Syria & goes back to Iraq

⭕ Dawlahs condition was that the court they would be judged in should openly make baraa & do takfir on tawaghit, you would think: that’s not so demanding right? But it is, for them it is because today it is clear that the sahwat do not make kufr bi taghut.

⭕ Dawlah also called the sahwat to a joint court, like how Ali (ر) & Muawiya (ر) settled their dispute.

(See more in: http://justpaste.it/court)

Now the condition put by Sahwat was not allowed in Shariah, because it’s not allowed to leave a single inch of land where Shariah is being ruled with so that it would be changed by Sahwat/FSA. And since that day & even before that day, until today the Sahwat & their allies are yet to implement the Shariah.

image

Hassan Abboud, The former amir of Ahrar Al-Shaam came out on Al-Jazeera, The Sahwat & their allies’ favorite news channel, & said that they were the first one to fight Dawlah & follow them in all of the provinces.

image

Translation from Ahrar fighter: “I am from Ahrar al Sham & we are the one who first began the fighting, i swear by Allah & i am ready for a mubahala.
CNN: FSA were the ones that started the fight against “daesh”

Some kufr statements from sahwat front

image

Abu Eesa, a leader of The ‘Islamic’ Front & the leader of Suqor ash Sham says they bless any state, even if it was a secular or democratic state.

Zahran Alloush says if the regime falls, they will let the people of Syria choose the state they want, he further says that they do not want to impose power on minorities which can be interpreted in many ways.

Abdelaziz Salameh, leader of Liwa ‘Tawhid’ part of The ‘Islamic’ Front asks USA for weapons against Dawlah like they supported the apostates kurds in Iraq against Dawlah

Now fast forward to May, 2015

image

From left to right: • Abu Jaber: Leader of Ahrar sham, • Zahran Alloush: Leader of Jaish al ‘Islam’, • Abu Eesa: Leader of Suqour ash Sham.

Sahwat in costumes visit Turkey, the purpose of their visit was exposed in July/August.

The 23rd of July, 2015

Turkey decides to participate in the war against Dawlah, & Turkey is NATO & NATO is USA & USA is Iblees (لعنة الله علیه).

“So you see those in whose hearts is disease hastening into [association with] them, saying, “We are afraid a misfortune may strike us.” [5:52]

image

The first one (surprise surprise) to make a statement to the secular Turks & support them & aid them over Dawlah was Army of ‘Islam’, Zahran Alloush

image

The second ones to make a statement to Turkey that they will support & aid against Dawlah are Ahrar ash Sham

Praise Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) for guiding you not to follow the ‘ulema’ blindly & take them as Lords beside Allah (سبحانه و تعالى). Praise Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) for guiding you not to be fooled by their positions & reputations.

The so called ‘Majlis shura ahl al ilm fi sham’ has made Halal what Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) has made KUFR.

O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people. [5:51]

[A Map showing the situation in Sham 2015]

I will let the images of the maps speak for themselves:

This was sahwats punishment Only By Allying With The FSA (Free Syrian Army) against the mujahidin, now imagine what Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) will DO TO THEM for Allying With Turkey/NATO/USA?

Allah (سبحانه و تعالى) gave victory to His soldiers who implements His shariah on every land they get a hold on, wherever they go, shariah, honor, dignity & victory for the believers will follow.

Subhan Allah, imagine how the map would look in 2017.

The fighting has just began.

FATWA: APPOSTASY OF ALLYING WITH TURKEY AGAINST THE ISLAMIC STATE

THE TURKISH QUESTION

It is not strange that Turkey has been drawn into this war – after the defeat of Erdoğan’s party in the elections and his failure to attain the majority which would enable him to become an autocracy, and after years of American pressure, and after threatening it with the Kurds – this has been expected. And we have mentioned this in a previous article, but the strange thing is the issuance of Fatawa from people – whom we consider to be upon good – saying that it is permissible to enter under the banner of Turkey to fight the Islamic State with weak flimsy arguments that conveys short-sightedness and lack of patience and ignorance of the consequence!!

If a questioner asked you: What is the meaning of their saying “and from the dilemmas is clarifying what is apparent”, then it is indeed this problem!! If “The verdict on a thing is a branch from understanding it”, then let us understand the problem to know the reality of this laughable shameful Fatwa :

Here we have a state that has announced its Islam and its leaders who announce their Islam who lead an army which announces its Islam which fights the Nusayri’s, the Christians, the Rawaafid and the apostates in defence of the Muslims. On the other hand : [there is a] president who proclaims his belief in the principles of secularism who announces the secularism of his government and leads an army which proclaims its secularism and its atheism and its enslavement to Atatürk who made the forbidden permissible for them and made the permissible to be forbidden upon them whom they obeyed!! If there was a Muslim child with you who could understand, ask him : An army that worships Atatürk, and an army that worships Allah, with whom would you be? If the small child – who has not crossed five years – knows by his instinct the reality of this problem, then what is the matter with some people corrupting -on the Muslims – their religion!!

Al-‘ilmaniyyah (Secularism) for those who do not know : It is “Establishment of life far from religion, or the complete separation of religion and life”. (Madhahib fikriyyah mu’aasirah written by Muhammad Qutb – مذاهب فكرية معاصرة لمحمد قطب ), the correct meaning for “al-‘ilmaniyyah” from its Latin, English and French translation is “اللادينية” [Atheism], and it has been translated with us [in Arabic] with “al-‘ilmaniyyah” so that it would be lightly trodden on the Muslim listeners .. ash-Shaykh Safar al-Hawali said :
“The widespread wording in the modern Islamic books is ‘Separation of Religion from the state’, but in reality it does not give the full meaning of al-‘ilmaniyyah which applies to individuals and behaviour that may not have a connection with the state. If it is said : It is the separation of the religion from life, it would have been more correct, and due to that the correct meaning of al-‘ilmaniyyah is : Establishment of life on other than the religion, regardless of whether it is in respect to the Ummah or the Individual” (al-‘ilmaniyyah). And he said: “Indeed al-ilmaniyyah means – obviously – ruling by other than which Allah has revealed, and this is the meaning of establishing life on something other than the religion, and from thereon it is – with obviousness as well – a Jahili system [pagan system] which doesn’t have any place for its belief in the scope of Islam. Rather it is disbelief as per the text of the Holy Qur’an : {وَمَنْ لَمْ يَحْكُمْ بِمَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ فَأُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْكَافِرُونَ} [And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, they are those who are the disbelievers] (al-Maida : 44)”. (Quoted from his book : al-‘ilmaniyyah)

The book “al-‘ilmaniyyah” written by ash-Shaykh Safar – may Allah cure him – is the most complete and best book written in Arabic Language regarding this dirty heretical theory, so let one who doubts in the disbelief of one who ascribes to Secularism go through the book, especially the last part under the heading “Verdict of al-‘ilmaniyaah in Islam” (Page 669).

So let everyone who carries a weapon know that Jihad would not be against any except “against the disbelievers with no covenant, to raise the word of Allah”, so fighting the Islamic State is not a jihad, and entering under a secular, Atatürkish, heretical apostate banner that colludes under the command of the Crusaders is : apostasy and coming out of the fold [of Islam] by consensus. The matter is not one differed in, and it doesn’t accommodate any difference, and no difference can be imagined in it for one who knows the situation and knows the sayings of the scholars of the predecessors in matters like this :

Ibn Hazm (may Allah have mercy on him) – said : “It is correct that the saying of the Most High : {وَمَنْ يَتَوَلَّهُمْ مِنْكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُم} {And whoever is an ally to them amongst you – then indeed, he is of them} is only taken on what is apparent from it that he is indeed a disbeliever among the disbelievers, and this is a reality that no two from the Muslims differ in.” (al-Muhalla : Volume 11)

Ash-Shaykh Hamood bin ‘Uqla ash-Shu’aybi – may Allah have mercy on him – said :

“As for allying the disbelievers against the Muslims and helping them against [the Muslims] then it is disbelief that puts one out of the fold of Islam, according to everyone whose sayings are relied upon from the scholars of the Ummah, old and new”.

Ash-Shaykh ‘Ali al-Hudhair said :

“As for the matter of allying with the disbelievers, the greatest of those who researched on the matter are the leaders of the Najdi Da’wah (may allah have mercy on all of them) and they viewed that to be from disbelief, hypocrisy, apostasy and coming out of the fold, and this is the truth. The book (Qur’an), Sunnah and Ijma’ give evidence to it.”

Ash-Shaykh ‘abdul Aziz bin Baz said :

“And the scholars of Islam have agreed that the one who allies the disbelievers against the Muslims and helps them in any form from the various forms of assistance is a disbeliever like them” (Majmoo’ al-Fatawa :Volume 1)

See the saying of ash-Shaykh ibn Baz : “in any form from the various forms of assistance” and compare it with those who want the Mujahideen to spill the blood of their brothers in favour of the Crusaders!!

Some have attained a position in lying and attained money from ignorance, and they said that this situation is from the chapter of “Seeking help from the disbelievers”. This is from the greatest of ignorance, and our situation is not from the “issue of Seeking help” from anything, because the banner does not belong to the Muslims, rather it is a crusader banner, and the Crusaders are those who are seeking assistance from the foolish and the stupid from the sons of the Muslims and others besides them to fight under them. So it is America that sought the help of the Rawafid, the Kurds, the Apostates, the Arabs, the Turks to fight the Islamic State. The leadership is American. The saying is the saying of America. The war is its war. Everyone is abiding by them. The command is for them. So how can the matter be Seeking assistance!! America intended to reduce their human losses so they brought these forward as sacrifices for them like how the disbelievers used to make sacrifices to Hubal [an idol].

Is anyone on the face of the earth ignorant of the fact that it is the Americans who are leaders of this crusader alliance against the Mujahideen!! Is anyone on the face of the earth ignorant of the fact that America is the one that established this crusader alliance!! A crusader alliance created by a crusader state which it leads to fight the Muslims, so how can it be a matter of seeking helping!!

If one of them philosophize and says that Turkey is a Muslim state, then we say : Its leader has announced his faith in the principles of secularism, and his government announces its secularism, and its army announces its guardianship for Atatürk’s Secularism. ash-Shaykh ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abdul Latif was asked regarding the state of the Ottoman Caliphate so he said :

“The one who doesn’t know the disbelief of the state, and the one who doesn’t differ between them and the aggressors from the Muslims do not know the meaning of laa ilaha illallah (There is no god except Allah), for if one believes that the state to be Muslims with that [i.e the Shahadah], then that is more severe and greater, and this is the doubting of the one who has disbelieved in Allah and associated [shirk] with him. So one who draws them and helped them against the Muslims with any form of assistance, then such is clear apostasy” [ad-Durar as-Saniyyah 10/429].

This is during the time of the Caliphate, and the Turks at the time had proclaimed their Islam even though they had fallen into some Shirk, so how would it be regarding an army that announces its secularism and its Atatürkism which still has the Shirk due to which they were made Takfeer on by the Scholars [in the first place]!!

Some might say: Erdoğan has some praiseworthy stances in giving victory to some of the matters of the Ummah, so we say : “Abu Talib bin ‘Abdul Muttalib” had far greater stances in giving victory to the Messenger of Allah – blessings and peace be upon him, and when he didn’t announce his Islam and proclaimed that he remains upon the religion of ‘Abdul Muttalib : He was in the fire with the disbelievers .. Abu Talib the Uncle of the Prophet – blessings and peace be upon him, who looked after the Messenger of Allah – blessings and peace be upon him. His sons were from the best of the Companions who fought under the prophet – blessings and peace be upon him. Abu Talib didn’t fight against the Muslims with his armies in Afghanistan, and he didn’t announce war upon them in ‘Iraq and Sham, and he didn’t hand over the Muslims to the Quryash like how the Turks are doing in catching the Mujahideen and handing them over. Rather he was fortified and harmed along with them, and defended them and stood in the face of the Quraysh for their sake. All these great stances didn’t intercede for him because he announced that he was remaining on the religion of ‘Abdul Muttalib. Erdoğan announces that he is remaining upon the religion of the secular, disbelieving, apostate, son of the Jewish woman – Atatürk who fought against the religion. Erdoğan defended the Brotherhood, and Abu Talib defended the Messenger – blessings and peace be upon him – and the Companions. We judge upon him over his announcement and his declarations, and if he has something kept hidden then it is between him and his Lord. What is for us is what is apparent, and Allah has not tasked us to search the secrets.

If it is said that he says “laa ilaaha illalaah muhammadan rasoolulaah” [There is no god except Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah], then this does not benefit him and his announcement is the belief in the principles of secularism and his governance with it. Because “laa ilaaha illalaah” [There is no god except Allah] – the first of it is negation thereafter it, affirmation follows, so he doesn’t become a Muslim till he negates from himself enslavement to other than Allah the Most high. He – the most Glorified – said : {فَمَنْ يَكْفُرْ بِالطَّاغُوتِ وَيُؤْمِنْ بِاللهِ فَقَدِ اسْتَمْسَكَ بِالْعُرْوَةِ الْوُثْقَى} {Whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break} (al-Baqarah : 256), So disbelieving in Taghut – whatever it is – takes precedence over any claim in belief, because Eeman cannot be Conceived along with Shirk. He – the Most High – said : {إِنَّ اللهَ لاَ يَغْفِرُ أَنْ يُشْرَكَ بِهِ وَيَغْفِرُ مَا دُونَ ذَلِكَ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ وَمَنْ يُشْرِكْ بِاللهِ فَقَدِ افْتَرَى إِثْمًا عَظِيمًا} {Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin.} (an-Nisa : 48) and He – the Most High – said : {إِنَّ اللهَ لاَ يَغْفِرُ أَنْ يُشْرَكَ بِهِ وَيَغْفِرُ مَا دُونَ ذَلِكَ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ وَمَنْ يُشْرِكْ بِاللهِ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلاَلاً بَعِيدًا} {Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly gone far astray.} (an-Nisa : 116), Shirk (association) is the greatest sin that a man may fall into it. And it is not possible for a man to be a Mushrik and a Muslim at the same time, that is even if he claims Islam and says “Laa ilaaha illa laah” (That there is no God but Allah) and he prayed and fasted..

Ash-Shaykh ibn Baz – may Allah have mercy on him – said criticising Arab nationalism :

“Every state that doesn’t rule by the Shari’ah of Allah, and doesn’t comply with the rule of Allah, and is not content with it, such is a Jahili, disbelieving, tyrannical wrong-doing state according to the text of these clear aayahs. The people of Islam should hate it and show enmity towards it for Allah, and it is forbidden upon them [the people of Islam] to love it [i.e. those states] and it is forbidden upon them to ally with it till they believe in Allah only, and rules by his Shari’ah, and is content with that for itself and upon it”.

Ibn Taymiyyah – may Allah have mercy on him – said :

“It is known by necessity from the religion of the Muslims and by consensus of all the Muslims that whoever justified the following of other than Islam or following a Shariah other than the Shariah of Muhammad – blessings and peace be upon him – such is a disbeliever” [Majmoo al-Fatawa : Volume 28]

The matter here has crossed “Justifying” to announcing and boasting of heretical secularism and ruling by the laws of disbelieving states and entering the religion of Atatürk and worshipping him. So what is the Shari’ Stance regarding a state that boasts about Secularism and takes the son of the Jewish woman “Atatürk” as a God besides Allah the Most High? Is it permissible to fight the Mujahideen under the banner of this state that has entered the American crusader alliance!! Ibn Taymiyyah says that the disbelief of a state that doesn’t rule by what Allah has revealed is “known by necessity from the religion of the Muslims and by consensus of all the Muslims” and his saying is regarding “Justifying” only and not regarding directly ruling and announcing clear disbelief and boasting of it, so how would it be if it was along with this : allying the Christians and helping them against the Muslims?!!

One might say that he is a soldier of a group, and this group has decreed the fighting under the secular Atatürkish banner allied to the cross, and that he is not capable of going against it, so we say to them what ibn Taymiyyah said in the famous Mardeen Fatwa :

“And aiding the enemy of the Muslims with man-power and property is forbidden upon them and it is obligatory upon them to abstain from that in any way that they can : from being absent or resistance or by doing a favour in return of it ; and if he is not able to do so except by Hijra : it becomes obligatory upon him” [End Quote].

So if a fighting soldier is not able to be absent or resist or do a favour in return of not having to participate or abstain from it in any other way; it is obligatory for him to abandon this group and leave it and join with a group that doesn’t go under a heretical banner which fights the people of Islam, and likewise the soldiers of the Islamic countries who are entrusted with fighting the Muslims, so these [soldiers in Islamic Nations], it is obligatory for them to disobey these commands, or to leave these armies even if it caused them harm, because it is not permissible for them to harm Muslims so that they can be safe.

Some of those who gave this fatwa used to praise ‘Erdoğan’ for years because he was not dragged into the Crusader war in ‘Iraq and Sham, and that he was able to distance himself from achieving the interests of the crusading America in ‘Iraq and Sham with diplomacy and the minds wisdom!! Everyone used to know – and some of these scholars said clearly – that America wanted to drag Erdoğan in to this war to destroy Turkey and to save Bashar, and that America has employed all the means of pressuring to force Erdoğan to enter in to this war but he distanced himself from it for the benefit of Turkey so he deserves praise and paying tribute to!! What has changed?!!

All of us know that the source of this fatwa is ash-Shaykh al-faqeeh al-‘allaamah “John Kerry”, the Foreign minister of America – May Allah destroy him and may Allah destroy America. He is the one who has released this fatwa that he is circulating in the lands of Islam so that some may stamp on it whether they know it or not!! The calamity is that they were upon Haq when they said that America wants the destruction of Turkey in dragging it into this war. Turkey will be destroyed, and Erdoğan will ruin everything that he has done in the past two terms if he fights the Islamic State that America, Europe, China, Russia, the Arabian states, Iran, the Rawafid of the World, the Nusayriyyah, the apostate Kurds together could not defeat. (That is because it got power so it established the Salah, and gave Zakah and commanded good and forbade evil, and gave victory to the Religion, and if it had altered or changed it would have been defeated). Turkey will disintegrate into small states. The apostate Kurds would break away to the south of the country, and the secularists with their apostate army will become powerful, and the only ones that will loose will be Erdoğan and his Party and those who gave him Fatwa with the likes of this without any awareness or realization.

Perhaps we should repeat stating the clear, manifest issue so that any one who has even an atom’s weight of intelligence or belief in his heart can take heed : A Muslim, muwahid, mujahid army and a secular apostate polytheistic army that worships the son of a Jewish woman Atatürk (and the Talk is about the announced apparent banner, and not on notability), and the Pressure is an American, and the fatwa is from John Kerry. So one who fights a Muslim army under the command of an apostate army which is commandered under the command of the Crusaders: let him wear the cross, and let him eat pork, and let him prostrate to the idols because he is not a Muslim, He is not a Muslim.

The equation is simple: {الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ الطَّاغُوتِ فَقَاتِلُوا أَوْلِيَاءَ الشَّيْطَانِ إِنَّ كَيْدَ الشَّيْطَانِ كَانَ ضَعِيفًا} {Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah , and those who disbelieve fight in the cause of Taghut. So fight against the allies of Satan. Indeed, the plot of Satan has ever been weak.} (an-Nisa : 76)

The Taghut is one who allied with Crusaders and healed them in fighting the Muslims and didn’t rule by the Shari’ah of the lord of the worlds and announced choosing secular disbelief and the Atatürki Shirk, As for those who believe, they are fighting the Tawaqheet in the path of Allah and ruling by the Shar’iah of Allah and commanded good and forbidding evil. Allah commanded to fight the allies of the Shaytan, and a man is accountable only for himself.

Bringing back the problem was necessary for the place because these fatawas are directed to our brothers, the Mujahideen in Shaam : for these [enemies] are working to corrupt the Jihad [of our brothers] for the benefit of their own selves to satisfy their hostile impulses on the Islamic State, or to please men at the cost of destroying the religion, the life, and the hereafter of a Mujahid!!

The Ummah does not suffice that it is being fought by the Jews, the Christiands, the Apostates, the Rawafid, the Hindus, the Buddhists, the Zoroastrians, the Nusayri, the Druze, the Apostates from the leaders and the apostates from the Secularists, the Zionists, the Leftists, the rationalists, the Liberalists and those who are on this make-up, till the people of beards, turbans, bishts [a flimsy coat worn by Saudi scholars, kings to flaunt status etc], and people of “religious positions” came to us to fight the Ummah from the top of the pulpits and in satellite TV, Social Programs, the Internet under the guise of religion and the guise of fighting against Terrorism, Khaarijities and Extremism!! When we were reading the hadith of the Messenger of Allah – blessings and peace be upon him “يوشك أن تداعى عليكم الأمم” “Soon the nations (i.e different groups of people) will invite each other against you” [Abu Dawud, Graded authentic by al-Albany] our minds used to fixate upon the nations of Judaism, Christianity and the people of Idolatry. As for now, we surely see with our own eyes the war of these [munafiqs/apostates mentioned above] against Islam and their invitations [to others to fight] against the people of Jihad and their alliance with the enemies of the Millah, and we have spent the night asking amongst ourselves : From which Ummah are these [from]?!!

These fatawa is only a preface to what is to come : For these people want the stabilization of the Nusayris in Sham, and an agreement with Bashar in fighting the Mujahideen. And they want the Mujahideen to be occupied with each other and for the enemy of Allah and those who are with him to be to be saved, at a time when the soldiers of Allah have edged closer to the strongholds of the Nusayris. And this is what has happened in Afghanistan when the victory was close, whence the enemies played their tricks to disband the Mujahideen, and in-fighting occurred, and the Jihad of the Ummah was lost. So the enemies want to repeat the occasion in Sham so that they can choose whom they wish who would rule the lands by which the slaves would be subjugated to them.

What happened in Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Tunis is not long ago, so where are the minds of the intellectual and the insight of the noble people of Eeman!! Kufr drags with it, its like : So one who fights today under a secular banner will find himself tomorrow fighting under the crusader banner or that of the Nusayris or the Rawafids and his justification will be that he fought under a heretical secular banner. Kufr [disbelief] is one nation, so there is no difference between these flags, and with this the religion is lost and the goals of the enemies are achieved.

We repeat due to the importance of the matter :

It is not allowed for one who believes in Allah and the Last day to enter under the Crusader banner to fight the Muslims.

It is not allowed for one who believes in Allah and the Last Day to enter under the Atatürks Secular Turkish banner to fight the Muslims.

It is not allowed for one who believes in Allah and the Last day to give Fatwa to the Muslims saying it is permissible to help the Crusaders and the heretical Secularists against the Muslims.

All of these are agreed upon by the Scholars of the Muslims, we do not know of any difference of opinion in it at all. The talk here is regarding a disbelieving crusader banner which is fighting a Jihadi Islamic State, so whoever who enters under the Crusader banner is a crusader like them {يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لاَ تَتَّخِذُوا الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى أَوْلِيَاءَ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءُ بَعْضٍ وَمَنْ يَتَوَلَّهُمْ مِنْكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ إِنَّ اللهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ } {O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people} (al-Maida : 51), and one who enters under Atatürks Secular banner to fight the Muslims, such is a secular Atatürki apostate according to the understanding of the Aayah like how some Scholars of Tafeseer have affirmed, so there is no argument for one who enters under this banner to fight the Muslims. And Allah – the most High – will ask those who gave Fatwa to the youth with this clear disbelief and apparent apostasy on the day in which the fire of Jahnnam would be distinct due to the wrath, so prepare for Allah an answer.

We ask Allah to repel every trick and plot against the Muslims, and to protect the Mujahideen from every treason, and to guide the fighters in every place to Haqq, and to defend them from the evil of every discourager and agitator, and to enable the Mujahideen to smite the necks of the enemies of the religion. We ask him – Glorified He is – to make the battle of the Muslims sincerely for his noble countenance alone, and to protect our youth in the field from the tribulations that are apparent and hidden, and to gather their saying and to unite their ranks with which their brothers become happy and their enemies enrage..

And Allah knows best.. May the blessings of Allah and peace be upon our prophet Muhammad and his family and his companions.

The Islamic Facade

by Al Ghareeb

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

“The West has understood the game. They won’t send anyone whose name is William or Benjamin. They’ll send people named Ahmed and Mohammed and Abdullah. The American soldier is expensive, so they will use people from among us — and this is the truth of the battle, they will use you — in the fight against us” – Abu Ayman al-Iraqi

It was the beginning of spring in 2014. A commander in the Syrian Revolutionary Front named Mohamed Zaatar decided to call his enemy from his living room couch in the Turkish city of Antakya. A former antique smuggler, Zaatar had taken up arms when the Syrian uprising began, and now commanded a militia notorious for looting, kidnapping, extortion, highway robbery and indiscriminate shelling of liberated areas. The enemy he phoned did not belong to the Syrian regime. It was Abu Ayman al-Iraqi, a veteran commander in the Islamic State which by then still was the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. “We are fighting a war against terror,” Zataar proudly told the reporter from Buzzfeed who would transcribe the conversation between the two.

“Remember my words, they [the West] will use you, and they will unite you with Bashar’s army, and with an interim government, and they will promise you seats in parliament, and such things — the same as they did with the Sunnis in Iraq. The West will sell you cheap. They sold your grandfathers and our grandfathers. And for hundreds of years the West has been controlling us, and they keep these tyrants over our heads. As if it were us who committed the al-Houla massacre, or did the chemical weapons attack, or raped the women in Bashar’s prisons. You forgot about Bashar, and now you came to fight us in earnest, and in the end, you and the [Alawites] will hug each other. You serve this project without knowing. Your army and Bashar’s army will unify to ‘counter terrorism’ — which is us,” Abu Ayman told Zaatar.[1]

The Syrian uprising that later turned in to an armed conflict between forces loyal to the Assad-family regime and those seeking to oust it, as most other matters in international affairs, divided the international community into two camps. While the Assad family have been able rely on Iran, her allies and Shiite militias for support, the opposition on their part has to rely on the group so eloquently described as “the friends of Syria”. This includes the U.S., the U.K., France, the KSA, Qatar and Turkey.[2] However, four years into this conflict, any observer would say: with friends like these, who needs enemies? Puppets, proxies or allies of the U.S., these friends may have a stated policy of regime change, but the resources devoted to the cause would suggest something different.[3]

                   [The Friends of Syria]

Without the context it is nearly impossible to understand anything, much less, international relations. If viewed as a single revolution turned uprising, in a vacuum, independent of other factors besides tyranny and a fight for democracy, for what is mistakenly referred to as freedom, the Syrian struggle might appear in one light. But if viewed as something with deeper roots, longer history, the struggle is no longer between the farmers and dentists on one side and the Assad regime on the other. It is no longer between the Zionists and the Majoos, between the West and the East. The struggle is instead between Iman and Kufr. The struggle dates back to the days of the Prophet (ﷺ), and it was not a fight for freedom as it is understood in western terms. It was to raise the word of Allah ﷻ and it still is.

Shaykh Abu Mus’ab az-Zarqawi (رحمة الله عليه) said, “We do not perform jihad here for a fistful of dirt or an illusory border drawn up by Sykes and Picot. Similarly, we do not perform jihad for a Western taghut to take the place of an Arab taghut. Rather our jihad is loftier and more superior. We perform jihad so that Allah’s word becomes supreme and that the religion becomes completely for Allah. {And fight them until there is no fitnah and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah} [Al-Anfāl: 39]. Everyone who opposes this goal or stands in the path of this goal is an enemy for us and a target for our swords, whatever his name may be and whatever his lineage may be. We have a religion that Allah revealed to be a scale and a judge. Its statement is decisive and its judgment is not amusement. It is the kinship between us and the people, for our scales – by Allah’s grace – are divine, our laws are Quranic, and our judgments are upon the prophetic tradition. The American Muslim is our beloved brother. And the kafir Arab is our despised enemy even if we and he were to have shared the same womb.“[4]

After the fall of the Ottoman Empire, our land was carved into pieces and we were given new identities, a new ruler and a new constitution. The consequence of which was of course the removal of Shariah, the rule of Allah ﷻ. The piece of land they named Syria can thus be ruled by anyone but a Muslim. The constitution could be anything but upon the rule of Allah ﷻ. A negotiated settlement between two non-Muslim proxies, an American and a Safawi, is even better. Why not let them fight each other on Muslim land, massacring Muslims in the process? After the war, we could have a mock trial in The Hague and pretend like nothing ever happened. Why live in the past? Move on. Did you see a KFC opened around the corner? Here, have a Pepsi.

Having withstood a 40-year ideological war waged by the Alawites, Islam however played a big role in the Syrian uprising from an early stage. Even the criminals that would come to hide their activities behind the banner of the Syrian revolution would at least pretend to want a future Syria with “some component of Shariah”. So we would have to audition rebels with Islamic banners but pragmatic mindsets in search for new proxies.

For this reason “the friends of Syria” empowered those advocating “jihad only in Syria” against “global jihadists”. In doing so, the Islamic Front (IF) could market itself in the region as a group willing to take up the battle against “extremism”, thus becoming acceptable in the political process. Whether formed for this purpose or not, the IF appears to at least have understood the dynamics very well, allowing the overtly secular elements disproportionate influence and attention. The merger of the seven brigades that led to the formation of the IF, announced on 22 November 2013, included groups from across the Islamist spectrum, from those who had called for a moderate state with a foundation of Islamic law, to those who called for a state built upon Shariah, yet it was their kosher rhetoric that somehow triumphed.[5]

In addition, while the Islamic State (then the Islamic State in Iraq and Levant) and Jabhat an-Nusrah (then still Jabhat an-Nusrah but without the three villages in Idlib) continued to seize territory, it appears that the military chief of the Islamic Front, Zahran Alloush, earned his MBA-degree. Having turned mergers into a fine art, Zahran has also been rumored to sell both weapons and territory to the Assad regime.[6] Moreover, he appears to have understood the importance of public relations as well. When he didn’t read speeches out of his Hello Kitty notebook, he appeared in more than one “unintentional” photo-shoot on the frontlines.[7][8] A Murji palace scholar for the Saudi government as a father is the icing on the cake.[9]

So, what would a future state in which the IF had a say in look like? At its most extreme, it appears to follow the model of the Muslim Brotherhood, combining democracy and foreign relations with Islamism, as indicated by secret documents seized by the Islamic State during a raid on Ahrar ash-Sham’s headquarters in Raqqah. Note, Ahrar ash-Sham is the constituent group within the IF with most Islamic tendencies. The documents, which were deemed top secret general guidelines for the organization, stated that a political committee was responsible for maintaining political relations both domestically and internationally. It also stated the need for ambassadors abroad to study their public image and perhaps most importantly – the need for political and financial support from foreign governments and organizations.[10]

Of course such financial support comes at a cost and there is much to indicate that the rebels’ war on the Islamic State was in fact pre-planned and that the U.S. and the KSA had involved the Islamic Front in this plan. The war on the Islamic state also empowered the pragmatic elements within the IF with other factions appearing to have been marginalized or defected. In addition, the loss suffered by the founding brigades forced the front to relax some of the strict conditions required from prospective member brigades. The joining of the Northern Storm Brigade for instance would have changed the composition of the IF and even altered the center of the Islamist-spectrum.[11]

On May 17th, a “Revolutionary Covenant”, signed by the IF and Jaish al-Mujahideen amongst others, was released.[12] The same Jaish al-Mujahideen that months earlier stated that they believed in Shariah that did not enforce the Hijab.[13]

            [The revolutionary covenant]

The covenant was allegedly aimed at “unifying the efforts and joining forces within a common framework that serves the interests of the Syrian people” with signatories confirming their commitment to the detailed pledges. The group pledged that the revolutionary work would be “derived from our authentic religion, staying away from fundamentalism and radicalism.” In a plea to build foreign relations, the covenant emphasized fair trials in the future with no acts of retaliation. “The Syrian revolution is a revolution based on morals and values with the objective of achieving freedom, justice and security to the entire Syrian society with its diverse multi-ethnical and multi-sectarian social fabric,” they claimed. Furthermore, the groups pledged to fight the Syrian regime, its allies, and “all those who carry out aggression against our people and excommunicate them (apostasy), such as the Islamic State.” The perhaps most important part of the statement was however the segment reassuring foreign countries that all “military actions would be limited to Syrian territories.”[14]

But the Islamic Front is the gift that keeps on giving. So when disbelievers celebrated Christmas day, on 25th December 2014, a new coalition, the Levant Front was announced in Aleppo. It consisted of the Islamic Front, Jaish al-Mujahideen, the Nur ad-Din Zinki-Movement, the Fastaqim Kama Umirt movement, the Authenticity and Development Front, and the Hazm Movement.[15] In case you haven’t followed the Syrian conflict, this list reads like the who’s who of western proxies. The Hazm movement was an offshoot of the Syrian Revolutionary Front and has since been disbanded with the majority of its former fighters joining other groups within the Levant Front.[16] The Nur ad-Din Zinki Movement, as the Fastaqim Kama Umirt movement, is a former Jaish al-Mujahideen outfit, led by Tawfiq Shahabuddin, the first rebel leader to officially support the coalition against the Islamic State, even going so far as to ask the coalition for arms to fight the Islamic State alongside them.[17][18]

And the fun does not stop there. Who’s leading this fine group of people? Abdelaziz Salamah, a man that in an Al-Jazeera report asked the West for “weapons to fight the Islamic State just as they help the Peshmerga and the YPG militia.”[19] He is also a leader within the Islamic Front, commanding Liwa at-Tawheed in Aleppo.[20] The same Liwa at-Tawheed which, during the January 2014 blitz on the Islamic State, raped wives and daughters of Islamic State fighters.[21] The same Liwa at-Tawheed that killed an Islamic State leader wanted by the US, flaunted his killing in a public statement hours before calling for a truce and then kept his wife in captivity for 8 months before handing her over to the Islamic State as part of the Turkey-Islamic State prisoner swap in September last year.[22] The same Liwa at-Tawheed which is part of the Euphrates Volcano operation room together with the YPG militia and several FSA factions which in September 2014 declared intentions to cleanse Northern Syria of the Islamic State in a bid for coalition support.[23] Yes, that same banner of monotheism.

In addition, most of these factions are members of the nationalist Syrian Revolutionary Command Council. All these factions receive supposedly “unconditional” aid from either the Gulf regimes, the CIA, the Syrian National Coalition, or the Free Syrian Army (FSA) Supreme Military Council while “not belonging” to any of them. In February 2015, the new front agreed with the Kurdish Autonomous Democratic Administration and the People’s Protection Units (YPG) – the armed branch of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), which is the Syrian branch of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) – to implement the Shariah in ‘Afrin![24] Lovely, isn’t it? A pick and mix buffet or better yet, a potluck, as a consitution. I’ll bring Shariah, you can bring democracy, the Marxist Kurds can bring communism.

In a conference held by “the Revolutionary Forces of Aleppo” in Turkey on 1st March 2015, the head of the political and media department of the Levant Front, Zakariya Malahifji, went even further:

“The Levant 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. … 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. … 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. … The Levant 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.”[25]

A little more than a year after the phone call between Abu Ayman Al-Iraqi and Mohammed Zaatar, the Syrian Revolutionary Front is now merely a shadow of its former self, having discovered the magnitude of the leap from a gang to a militia.[26] However the proxy war in Syria is still very much alive.

While the Levant Front quietly dissolved as a unified military entity on April 14, the constituent groups agreed to maintain cooperation as independent actors. The move is believed to signal a wider renegotiation of rebel coordination in Aleppo province with the possible support and encouragement of regional actors such as Turkey. In fact, the dissolution occurred amidst ongoing negotiations between Turkey and Saudi Arabia, mediated by Qatar to conduct joint military action to oust the Assad regime. At the same time, Zahran Alloush was reportedly in Turkey along with other unidentified Syrian rebel leaders to engage in a series of meetings that may be related to this ongoing exploration of options for military intervention in Syria. The U.S. would of course be engaged quietly in these negotiations as well.[27]

Allah ﷻ says in the Quran:

الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ۖ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ الطَّاغُوتِ فَقَاتِلُوا أَوْلِيَاءَ الشَّيْطَانِ ۖ إِنَّ كَيْدَ الشَّيْطَانِ كَانَ ضَعِيفًا

“Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah , and those who disbelieve fight in the cause of Taghut. So fight against the allies of Satan. Indeed, the plot of Satan has ever been weak.”[28]

Before ending the conversation with his foe, Abu Ayman added a few words that offer insight into the future of the so called rebel infighting quite well. Since Zataar and his colleagues took their orders from the U.S. and its allies, Abu Ayman reasoned, “You will kill us and we will kill you. We have no other options — either you cleanse us or we cleanse you, because the decision is not yours.”[29]
