Muhammad bin Salmaan and the return of Idolatry to the Arabian Peninsula


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


All praise belongs to Allah alone, and may the blessings and peace be upon our prophet Muhammad, his family and his companions.

Allah the Most High said: {and I didn’t create the Jinn and Mankind except to worship me}

Allah the Most High sent his messengers and revealed the books so that he would be worshipped alone with no partners. And Islam was established upon belief in Allah and disbelief in the Taghut. Allah the Most High said : { Whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah, then he has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that will never break.}

Shaykhul Islam Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab – may Allah have mercy on him – said: “Know this, may Allah have mercy on you, that the thing that was first obligated by Allah upon the son of Adam is disbelief in the Taghut and Belief in Allah” End Quote.

Indeed, Islam has come with the [command] of destroying the Idols and statues, and with the establishment of Tawheed by worshiping Allah alone without any partners. And this is why the Prophet Muhammad – blessings of Allah and peace be upn him – came with the destruction of the Idols, so that the worship would be for Allah alone without no partners in it. It has come in the famous Hadith of ‘Amru bin ‘Abasa who said:

I used to think when I was in Jahiliyyah that the people were upon misguidance, and that they were not upon anything and that they were worshipping Idols. And I heard of a man in Makkah who was giving news of things, so I travelled and went to him, and there he was the Messenger of Allah – blessings of Allah and peace be upon him – in hiding with his people against him, so I was quiet till I entered upon him in Makkah. So I said to him: ‘What are you?’ He said: ‘I am a prophet.’ So I asked: ‘and what is a prophet?’ He said: ‘I was sent by Allah.’ So I asked: ‘And with what were you sent?’ He said: ‘I was sent [to order] to maintain the relations of the womb, to break the Idols and to make Allah one and not associate anything with him.’

Shaykhul Islam Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab – May Allah have mercy on him – says: “The cream of the divine Message and the Prophetic call is Unification (Tawheed) of Allah in worshipping him, alone, with no partners, and to break the Idols. And it is known that breaking them [i.e. the idols] would not be achieved except with severe enmity and by drawing the sword. So ponder about the cream of the Message.” End Quote.

In an interview of the Defence Minister of Saudi – who is also its Deputy Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salmaan – with the TV channel al-‘Arabiyyah, he said : “Many people connect the history of the Arabian Peninsula with a very short history. Indeed it is, by Allah, their history of 1400 years only, which is connected to the Islamic History. Whereas, the Islamic History, and there is no doubt that it is the most important support and stepping-stone for us, however we have a very voluminous historical depth which meets with many civilizations. The Arabian History is thousands of years old. It is a history of speech. A history of principles. A history of values which cannot be matched by any other History or civilization in the World. The best civilisation in terms of values and principles – it is the Arabian Civilisation which has existed for thousands of years. This is one thing that we have. Second [thing we have is], we have a part of the European Civilisation present inside Saudi and it has extremely important places in Saudi and it has a component of civilization that is very important inside Saudi. And we have important destroyed civilisations which existed for thousands of years which are deeper [historically] than any other civilisation. This is a part of the map of Civilisation that is present in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It is an obligation for us to benefit from these civilisations and make use of it in one way or the other”. End Quote.

Like this he had said – and we seek refuge from Allah from the Misguidance.

Muhammad bin Salman is praising the Arabian Civilisation that existed before Islam. The civilization of worshipping Idols and associating others with Allah, and he describes that the best civilization in terms of values and principles is the Arabian Civilisation

Which values and principles are there in worshipping the Idols and in committing Shirk (taking partners) with Allah – which ‘Amru bin Luhai brought to the Arabian Peninsula – that Muhammad bin Salman praises in those civilization according to his statement?

Rather, he is talking about destroyed civilisations and he wishes to restore them. So does he intend by these civilisations, the polytheistic disbelieving nations like ‘Aad and Thamud and others besides them from the Nations that Allah the Most High punished?

And the amazing thing is when he says: “It is an obligation for us to benefit from these civilisations and make use of it in one way or the other” !!

So what does he intend by that? Does it mean the return of Idolatry to the Arabian Peninsula upon the hands of this man? And would he be the new ‘Amru bin Luhai who would put the people into the fitna of the civilizations of Idol worshipping and committing shirk with Allah?

Rather, he didn’t stop at the Arabian Idolatry, he even spoke about what he called the European Civilisation when he said: “we have a part of the European Civilisation present inside Saudi and it has extremely important places in Saudi and it has a component of civilization that is very important inside Saudi.”

So does he want a return of the European Idolatry like how he wishes for the return of the Arabian Idolatry – we seek refuge in Allah!

Indeed, the position of Islam is clear and there is no confusion in it regarding the obligation of destroying Idolatry and putting an end to it. For Islam and Shirk will never ever exist together.

‘Ali bin Abi Talib – may Allah be pleased with him – said to Abu al-Hayyaj al-Asadi : “Shall I not send you with what the Messenger of Allah – blessings of Allah and peace be upon him – sent me with, that you would not leave a representation (an idol) except that you disfigure it, nor a raised grave except that you level it?”. End Quote.

This is what our prophet Muhammad – blessings of Allah and peace be upon him – was sent with. Disfiguring the Idols, and levelling the raised graves! And it is not like how Muhammad bin Salman wants in reviving the ancient Idolatry in the name of Ancient Arabian Civilisation!

Rather, the scholars of Islam have established the obligation of destroying places of Shirk and Idolatry and established that it is not permissible for these places to remain even for one day with the capability [to destroy them].

Ibn Qayyim – may Allah have mercy on him – said: “It is not permissible for the places of Shirk and the Tawaqheet, after the capability to destroy it and falsifying it – to be kept [without destroying] even for a single day. This is because they are slogans of disbelief and Shirk, and they are the worst of evil. So it is not permissible to agree upon these [by not destroying them and keeping them] with the capability [to destroy them] at all.” End Quote.

And even with this dirty criminal call for a return of Idolatry to the Arabian Peninsula, you do not find even a single word from the evil scholars regarding it!

So where are those who attacked the Islamic State day and night and described it deceitfully with every blemish, where are they now regarding this dirty call for the return of Idolatry to the Arabian Peninsula?!

Where is the dirty man, Sa’d ash-Shithry who described the State of Islam and its soldiers to be Heretics!!

Where are the dirty Suruiyah regarding this matter?!

Where is their drunkard who lies upon the Islamic State, where is he regarding this matter?!

Indeed Shirk was wide-spread in the Islamic World when the Imam al-Mujadid Shaykhul Islam and the Imam of Ahlu Sunnah Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab – may Allah have mercy on him – stood with his call, fought Shirk and spread Tawheed – him and his grandsons, using the tongue and the swords.

The Official Maktabatul Himmah (Publisher) that is under the Islamic State had mentioned in the Introduction of Mufeed al-Mustafeed by Shaykh Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab – may Allah have mercy on him:

“And ash-Shaykh Muhammad fought all types of Shirk, Bid’ah and Superstitions inside the Arabian Peninsula and outside it. And he waged Jihad against everyone who stood in front of the call of Tawheed. So he gathered in himself Tawheed and Jihad, by which he became the Imam of his Era. Allah purified the lands upon his hands, from the Shirk which many of the Muslims of that time had fallen into. And Allah – the most Glorified – renewed Tawheed that was worn out. And he is whom we consider that the saying of the truthful and the attested one – the blessings of Allah and his peace be upon him – applies to [wherein he said]: ‘Indeed Allah the Most High sends a person for this Ummah at the beginning of every hundred years who would renew its religion for it.’.” End Quote.

And now, Muhammad bin Salman announces the return of Idolatry – we seek refuge in Allah!

And after this clear statement, now it is clear who is giving victory to Tawheed and destroying Shirk, and who is calling for the renewal of Idolatry.

The matters have become clear, and it is clear that in reality it is the Islamic State that is carrying the banner of Tawheed in this age with honesty. And that it is the real continuance of the call of Tawheed and the call of the Prophets upon the Prophetic Methodology. [Which was] the Call of the leaders of Guidance like Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal, Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah and Shaykhul Islam Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab – may Allah have mercy on them all.

The Official Maktabatul Himmah that is under the Islamic State had mentioned in the Introduction of Mufeed al-Mustafeed by Shaykh Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab – may Allah have mercy on him:

“And we thank Allah – the Most Glorified – for honouring us by allowing us to distribute what ash-Shaykh Muhammad renewed from the Aqeedah of Tawheed which the Tawaqheet and their adherents are warring against by labelling it Wahhabiyyah, Takfeeriyyah and Khawaarij, ever since its first inception till our current time. But how can they ever extinguish the light of Tawheed, when Islam has attained a state upon the prophetic methodology which safeguards the limits of Tawheed and protects its Da’ees”. End Quote.

It has indeed become clear now who are the real inheritors of the da’wah of Shaykhul Islam Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab and his grandsons.

It is indeed the Islamic State which is spreading Tawheed and waging Jihad to spread it and it is not Saudi nor the evil monks nor the dogs of Sururiyyah nor those besides them.

The Official Maktabatul Himmah that is under the Islamic State has said in the Introduction of Kashf ash-Shubuhaat by Shaykh Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab – may Allah have mercy on him:

“The Islamic State and its Da’wah and Jihad today, is a continuance and embodiment of the Da’wah of Tawheed and Jihad with which the Messenger of Allah – blessings of Allah and peace be upon him – and his companions came with, which was renewed by Ibn ‘Abdul Wahhab and his grandsons.” End Quote.

As for the monks of evil and the dirty Sururiyyah and others besides them, who are touching the Da’wah of Shaykhul Islam Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab and his grandsons, the Official Maktabatul Himmah of the Islamic State has mentioned regarding this in the footnote of page (22) in the book ‘Masaail al-Jahiliyyah written by Shaykh Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab which they are distributing, while commenting on the saying of the Shaykh (The Eighteenth issue : Their contradiction in Attribution, they attribute themselves to Ibrahim – peace be upon him – while making their abandonment of following him apparent) :

The Maktabah al-Himmah said: “And likewise are the scholars of Al Salul who claim their attribution to the Da’wah of ash-Shaykh Muhammad bin ‘Abdul Wahhab and his grandsons – may Allah have mercy on them all -, when they do not even disbelieve in the Taghut, nor do they wage Jihad in the path of Allah, rather on the contrary they are allying themselves with the Crusaders and warring against the Mujahideen. So their likes are the likeliness of the Rawaafid who claim their attribution to ‘Ali and claim to love al-Hussain when they themselves don’t follow these two in the Tawheed, Worship, and Behaviour which they both were upon (may Allah be pleased with them both), on the contrary they act on the complete opposite of what these two were upon”. End Quote.

My Muslim brother in the Arabian Peninsula,

Indeed the matter has become apparent and become clear to full clarity, and what is after the truth except misguidance? – We seek refuge n Allah.

Indeed the methodology of the Islamic State has become clear and it is the call of pure Tawheed and Jihad upon it. And the methodology of Muhammad bin Salman is clear and it is the call of Idolatry in the Arabian Peninsula.

The issue has now become an issue between a methodology that calls to Tawheed and its spreading, and between a methodology that wish for the return of Idolatry. So what is your excuse after this? It is a matter of Belief and disbelief. So what do you wait for after this? Indeed the matter is extremely dangerous. And the world will not enrich you of the hereafter. And the evil monks and tyrants won’t be of any benefit to you.

And all Praise is to Allah, the lord of the Worlds.

BY: Abū Maysarah Ash-Shāmi

Praise be to Allah the great, the most high and may peace and blessings be upon the cheerful avid fighter, and upon his honorable modest household.

The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said:

“If a man gets reassured to be with another man, then he kills him after he was reassured, he (the killer) will be taged with a flag of treachery on the Day of Judgment” [Narrated by Al Hakim from ‘Amr bin AlHamiq and said: the isnad (chain of narration) of this hadith is Sahih (authentic) and  Imam Adh-Dhahabi said: “it is Sahih”]

The Prophet (pbuh) also clarified in many Hadiths that on the day of Judgment, when Allah gathers the earliest and the latest of people, a flag will be raised on the Anus of every traitor with which he will be identified and the the degree of his treachery can be quatified by its height. Then it will be said: “Surely this is the treachery of so and so!” [A Chapter about the prohibition of treachery in Sahih Muslim].

He, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him also said:

“There is no traitor who is greater in treachery than an overall leader” [reported by Muslim from Abu Said]

The Monotheist Mujahidin and all the people in the east and the west of the world, should know that Alshabab leaders – who have their allegiance to Zawahiri the moron of the Taghut Akhtar Mansur – that these corrupt mischief-making leaders, misguided and misguiding, have transgressed against the soldiers of the Khilafah in Somalia, acted treacherously with them, spilled their unlawful blood, and killed their pure souls without any right.

Yes after the muhajirin and the Ansar successively came to the soldiers of the Khilafah in Somalia to hear the call of the khilafah, and hasten towards holding firm to the Jama’ah, Alshabab leaders sent 3 of its spies to the Mujahid shaykh Abu Nu’man AlYintari (may Allah accept him), who came with his family and kinsmen to the rank of Khilafah and shifted to the forest.

The spies claimed that they wanted a meeting with the shaykh Abu Nu’man and his associates to give bay’ah to the Khalifah. Shaykh Abu Nu’man came with 5 of his close friends to meet them, and at the end of the meeting, the Alshabab spies killed them in cold blood out of arrogance and treachery. After his murder, they contacted Ar Reemy (the soldier of Akhtar in Yemen) telling him about the operation and claiming that they killed a Dawlah leader sent from Libya. So they acted treacherously and lied also.

Yes, they also treacherously assassinated the Mujahid shaykh Hussein Abdi  Gedi (may Allah accept him) similar in manner to what they did to Abu Nu’man, they sent to him a man whom the shaykh used to trust who was his driver and bodyguard, the traitor claimed he wanted to join the khilafah, and when he met the shaykh he assassinated him and two of his friends.

They also assassinated the muhajir mujahid Muhammad Makawi Ibrahim Muhammad (Hudayfah As Sudani  – may Allah accept him) who was wanted by the American crusaders since 2008 after he was involved in the murder of John Grandfield the crusader American diplomat in sudan. Then after Hudayfah was imprisoned in the ‘Kobar’, he and his friends managed to escape in a blessed opperation. The Americans offered 5million dollars bounty to whoever reports(of his location) to them. Maybe they will send it to the leaders of Alshabab!

Earlier on, Alshabab spies had kidnapped 10 among the members of the Mujahid Shaykh Abdul Qadir Mu’min (may Allah grant him steadfastness and protection), which made the shaykh hasten towards announcing his bay’ah hoping that Allah guides some of the Alshabab leaders to the truth or that they might atleast feel shy from spilling the blood of a muslim without a valid right.

They also jailed among the Muhajirin and ansar anyone whom they thought was supporting the Khilafah, they seized their assets, terrified their families, even some civilian muslims whom they suspected to be sympathetic towards or supporting the army of the Khilafah were not exempted from their evil. As if supporting the khilafah is a crime that demands punishment according to the “constitution” of Alshabab, upon anyone who gives bay’ah, the supporter, the one hiding, and even the suspected one.

They did not spare the young nor the old, indeed they arrested the gray-haired brother Abu Anas Al Masri in the town of Jamame after he returned from the maghrib prayer heading to his house, they captured with him also brother Abu AbdurRahman Al Maghribi, then when shaykh Abdul Aziz Ruqayyah repudiated their action, they humiliated him, arrested him and joined him with the former ones. Then just after a week, they arrested muawiyyah Al Malesi (Malaysian) and Uways Al Ansari.

They also arrested Abdullahi Yussuf (a former Alshabab leader) and his friend, during their travel between kunya Barow town and Jilib. And as usual, they assassinated them treacherously after they claimed that they just wanted to sit with them for a conversation.

They also detained the deputy of the council of the ulamaa Badruddin Al Ansari.

They also arrested Abu Thabit Al Muhajir in the same treacherous operation that they murdered Hudayfah As Sudani (may Alaah accept him).

Then after the detention of those and many others whose number is only known by Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala, there is no information about them and nothing was heard about them. May Allah grant them steadfastness and freedom. The real accusation against all those is their intention to join the Muslim Jama’ah, leaving the blind groups, supporting the renewed Khilafah and disavowal of the Taghut of Taliban and his moron. La hawla walaa Quwwata illaa billah (there is no might nor power except in Allah)

Among the crimes of the leaders of Alshabab is that they sent an official delegation to all the fronts of the movement and to its offices and they told the soldiers and their leaders that they will fight and kill anyone who tries to “split the rank”! Likewise they called the Ulama for secret meetings whereby they threatened them with murder if they support “those dividing the rank”! As if the muslim Jama’ah is the Alshabab movement faction whose allegiance is to the moron Zawahiri the slave of the Taliban Taghut!

Amid this treacherous campaign against the soldiers of the khilafah in Somalia, and since some battalions of the movement gave allegiance to the khilafah, the leaders of the movement directed most of their soldiers and efforts to hunt down the soldiers of the khilafah to kill and massacre them instead of making their major goal to hit the head of the  kufr America as their Zawahiri usually claims.

Nay, they did not stop being peaceful with the appostate militias whose apostasy is elaborate and are situated in Gobaweyn town in southern Somalia near Kismayo, led by the so called Bare Hirale whom there is no doubt nor dispute in his apostasy. Bare Hirale is the former defense minister in the apostate government(of Somalia), the allies of the crusaders and a key player in the democracy “game”. The leaders of Alshabab movement don’t target these militia despite the fact that the movement has a military force in the field there. They allow these apostates to enter and leave the territory of Alshabab, they don’t permit anyone to kill them and take their wealth as ghanimah. They give peace to these apostates and offer a truce to them at the same time that they imprison and murder anyone whom they suspect is supporting the khilafah. It is like they are imitating Abu Mus’ab AbdulWadud who wants to unite with the national movement for the liberation of Azwad or Khalid Al Batrafi the mastermind of the handover of Al Mukalla to the Taghut “The Hadrami national council” and others besides them who reconcile with the Murtadin and fight the Muwahideen.

Yes, the idol of the party (partisanship) and that of hubris have blemished the hearts of Alshabab movement leaders until they neither recognized the truth nor renounced the falsehood. Rather, they kept quiet from the deviations of the Taghut Akhtar and those of his moron Zawahiri. Are they really compelled to give allegiance to one who considers the Tawaghit of Qatar and Ikhwan as his brothers? Also (considering) the Rafidah of khurasan and those of the whole world as his brothers? Are they really copelled to give allegiance to the one who allied with the saluli (Saudi puppets) sahawat, the nationalistic sahawat rather the democratic and atheist ones against the Muhajirin and Ansar? Are they really compelled to give allegiance to the one who abandoned AlWalaa Walbaraa and resisted it with his party and seeks closeness to the apostate Pakistani government, its armies and Secret Agencies? Are they really compelled to give allegiance to the one who fights for the sake of Afghani nationalism and offers peace to the apostate afghani government for the sake of nationalism?

They should know that if they don’t know the situation of their leader Akhtar and his moron, then that is a disaster! But if they know, then the disaster is greater!

To the soldiers of the khilafah in Somalia we say:

Allah The Master (The Great and The most high) said:

“And those who, when an oppressive wrong is inflicted on them, they defend themselves. The recompense for an evil is an evil equal thereto.” [Al- Shurah verse 39 & 40]

And The Great and The most high also said:

“If then anyone transgresses against you, transgress likewise against him” [Al Baqarah 194]

And The Great and The most high also said:

“And if you punish, punish with an equivalent of that which you were harmed” [Al Nahl 126]

It is inevitable to punish these mischief-makers on the earth with the like (of their offenses) and even stronger. Execute the leaders of Tahazub (partisanship) and Iftiraq (division) with silencers, explosive belts, IEDs(Improvised Explosive Device) until the ranks divide purely into two; and therefore the people will  know with whom these leaders stand, with Akhtar and Zawahiri? Or with Tawhid and Jihad? Indeed, in the ranks of Alshabab movement are a huge number of soldiers who want to join the Muslim Jama’ah but are prevented by the oppression of Alshabab leaders and its spies. Wallahul must’an (from Allah we seek help)

Lastly, to the leaders of Alshabab movement;  if you want salvation, disavow your Akhtar and your Zawahiri, and also your partisanship and oppression. Don’t follow the steps of shaytan and thus be afflicted with what befell the Jowlani front; wastage of dunya and Akhirah.

May Allah grant him forgiveness

Orriginal Arabic article:



Penned by: Abū Maysarah Ash-Shāmi

This article was published on 31st March 2014 by ‘Ubwa Laseqa. The author who is a well known writter on these topics and an expert in them covers the topic in great detail. This is what he had to say about this article in a recently published article in which he was adressing Al Shabaab.

NB: I had a good perception of Hani sibai when I wrote this old article(reffering to this bay’ah article), I was uniformed about his reality. It became clear to me later that he is one of the heads of Tajahhum and misguidance who don’t support except for his prestige and thoughts.

In The Name of Allah The Beneficent The Merciful

All praise is due to Allah the Greatest and the Most High, and may the peace and blessings be upon the cheerful avid fighter (Rasūli Allah) and upon his noble and pure household.

To proceed:

The respected shaykh Hāni Sibā’i the director of Al-Maqreze center for historical studies talked about the disagreement between the Islamic State and Jabhat Al-Nusrah. So the brother thought that the basis of this problem lies in the misconceptions (surrounding) the Bay’ah and the organizational relationship between the Islamic State and Tanthīm Al-Qā’idah. And this is far from the reality because the disagreement – after being only methodological, extended to a battle between truth and falsehood, that’s why it is important to understand some issues:

Firstly, Verily the Islamic State has an establishment on the ground, implemented and judged (between people and itself) with Shari’ah. Its governance stretches from Raqqa to Al-Barakah and large and complete pieces of land in Halab, Hims, Al-Anbār, Ninawah, Salāhuddīn, Diyāla, Kirkūk and other places. They established the prayers in this places and Hududs (prescribed punishments) and courthouses and Hisbah (commanding the good and forbidding the evil) agencies. We see the opposite if we look at the governance of the sahawāt and their ally Jawlāni. Their joint Sharī’ah board has neither knowledge nor power, it is corrupt and it corrupts because they included in the legislations the extreme Sūfis, Murji’ah, the Ikhwānis and the criminals (even the ex-regime tāghūt judges). Their slogan is: “No Sharī’ah during war” and they misinterpret with their desires the sentence: “No punishments (Hudūd) in Dār Al-Harb (the land of war. i.e lands ruled by manmade laws)”. For two years, they controlled some large and stable “liberated” areas, but we didn’t see any Hisbah or Hudud (punishments), except on the imprisoned soldiers of the Islamic State. And then we see the Jahiliyah statements like the one made by “Jaysh Al-Mujāhidīn” allies of Jawlāni saying that Hijāb is a personal freedom.

Secondly, Jawlāni’s group made its first priority fighting the IS, so they put in first, fighting the IS instead of fighting Hay’at Al-Arkān (General Staff Command Building of the Syrian armed forces) and the bandits, so they truly became: Murji’ah with the pagan coalition (SNC) and Aāl Salūl (Saudi), and Khawārij with the Islamic State.

Thirdly, Abū Abdūllāh Ash-Shāmi issued a fatwa based on lies, and he immediately made fighting the Islamic State compulsory because it’s a Tā’efah Muntani’ah (a refraining sect) from Hākimiyah (seeking judgement in Qurān & Sunnah) and labeled them as more extremist than the khawārij (while he contradicted in the description of the Hākimiyah which they refrained from), so he was similar to Ibrahīm Al-Salqīni and Adnān Al-‘Ar’oor.

So now the disagreement developed into an ongoing war between the Islamic State who have empowerment on earth (in one front) and the groups in the Jarba and Aāl Saud coalitions and the followers of Jawlāni (in the other front), so they lined up in one rank in order to achieve their goal by coordinating it on all levels. All praise is due to Allah who guided the defectors from Jawlāni to give their testimonies about the conspiracies. 

Thus, the misconceptions surrounding the Bay’ah have no traces on the ground, because the defectors from Jawlāni front preform Hijra in dozens to The Islamic State territory even if the misconceptions (surrounding Bay’ah) weren’t clarified. It is because they saw the deviation in manhaj in this group (Jabhat An-Nusrah). Also the threats by Jawlāni, the Fatwa of As-Shāmi and their denial of the favors and the goodness they, in the past used to acknowledge, encouraged them (the defectors) to pledge allegiance to the Islamic State.

So the reality is different from what was imagined by the brother, because the muhājirīn and ansār do not obey someone who commands them to join a coalition with the secularists, salūli’s, Jahmī’s and criminals, nor do they obey the one who deviated in his manhaj, disobeyed his amīr (Abū Bakr Al- Baghdādi) and helped against him those whom there is no dispute in their kufr, even if the order(of obedience) was to come from all the ‘wise men’ of the world.

In order to refute the “Bay’ah” misconception by Allah’s Will, I shall convey the words of Dr. Aymān Al-Zawāhiri himself, with a short commentary, and from Allah we seek assistance.

Firstly, the minister (of war) Abū Hamzah Al-Muhājir may Allah have mercy on him dissolved the Al-Qāeda branch in the land of the two rivers (Iraq) without consulting his amīr Shaykh Usāma ibn Lāden (may Allah have mercy on him) in Khurassān. And this is something which cannot be denied by Dr. Ayman. So the minister (Abū Hamza) hastened with the declaration because the matter couldn’t be delayed neither according to the Shari’ah nor the situation, and shaykh Usāma recognized the legitimacy of the State because it is not permissible to postpone its establishment.

Appointing the Imām becomes an immediate duty upon ability,

Dr. Ayman said:

“The establishment of the Islamic state or emirate is a religious duty and a realistic necessity. This cannot be delayed for the lack of the best circumstances for electing the ruler. Otherwise, those who spread mischief and the enemies of Islam will seize the country, security will be lost, sanctities will be violated, and tumults will take place. The fruits of jihad in Afghanistan would have been lost had the Islamic Emirate not been established. This could also lead to the loss of these fruits in Iraq, especially since all the internal and external atmospheres in the two countries are prepared and are available for igniting infighting unless a legal and enabled authority was established to foil these conspiracies.”

“[In Iraq] previously the brothers made successive efforts to unify the ranks of the mujahidin first in the Mujahidin Shura Council then the Hilf (Alliance of) Al-Mutayyibin (the honourables), and then in the pledge of allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq by most of the jihadist groups, which pursue the right methodology and the mujahid and steadfast tribes, the brothers mentioned this in detail. Therefore, it would be unnecessary to repeat it. The best proof of this is the heroic steadfastness of the blessed state on whose rock the military campaigns, seditions, and conspiracies founder.” [‘Second Round of The Open Interview’ (Al-Liqā Al-Maftūh ) with al-Zawahiri, 2008]

So the establishment of an Islamic State is obligatory, that’s why Dr. Zawāhiri explained in his answers in Al-Liqā Al-Maftūh:

“The need for the establishment of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) and the religious and practical (shar’iyah) justifications for its establishment, particularly as such a need is to a great extent connected with a practical view of the field of struggle (battlefield). Our brothers in the Islamic State of Iraq are pioneers in that field. The brothers in Afghanistan have known a number of ISI’s notables at close hand, and they contacted them in various cases. They found in them nobility, a generosity of spirit, and a perspicuous view of the changing reality and storming events which they experienced and which hardened them. The best proof of their perspicuous vision is the enormous achievement they accomplished with Allah’s help, whereby they foiled the US and Iranian plans in the region, an achievement they began by digging their nails into the rock, in circumstances shrouded in defeat, despair, and being overwhelmed by the US invasion and Iranian coalition. They undoubtedly know their field better than anyone else. As for their fairness and truthfulness, all my brothers who lived with them testify to their truthfulness, honesty, renouncement of worldly pleasures, sound views, and good morals.”  [‘Second Round of The Open Interview’ (Al-Liqā Al- Maftūh ) with al-Zawahiri, 2008]

So Abū Hamzah dissolved Tanthīm Al-Qāeda in the land of the two rivers (Iraq) while saying:

“I tell the venerable Shaykh, the brave hero, the Qurayshi Hashemite, who is of a Husayni origin, the commander of the faithful, Abu Umar al‐ Baghdadi: I pledge allegiance to you, to hear and obey, during difficulty and ease, wether in pleasant or unpleasant situations, and even against our preference and this is a promise not to dispute for power with the leader, and to say the truth wherever we are, and not to fear the criticism of anyone in the cause of Allah. And I announce the integration of all the formations that we have established, including the Mujahideen Shura Council, on behalf of my brothers in the council, under the authority of the Islamic State of Iraq.” [“There is no judgment but that of Allah” speech]

And this was confirmed by Dr. Ayman with his saying:

“There is nothing in Iraq today called al-Qaida, for al-Qaida organization in Mesopotamia (Iraq) has merged by the blessing of Allah with the other groups and Jihadi factions in the Islamic State of Iraq, may Allah protect it, and it is a Shar’i (legal) Emirate upon the correct manhaj, and it was established with Shurah and got the pledged of allegiance of majority of the Mujahideen and tribes of Iraq” [Fourth meeting with As-Sahāb Media]

And the Islamic State is truly established not just imaginary, Dr. Ayman said:

“And not that long ago, the Mujahideen established a government in Peshawar – outside Afghanistan, and everyone was happy about it, supported it and blessed it, and nobody condemned it, and many of those who are now condemning the Islamic State in Iraq, with their claim that “it doesn’t have enough power” actually supported the government of Peshawar at the time. And today, the Islamic State in Iraq is established in Iraq, and the Mujahideen are celebrating it in the streets, people are demonstrating to show their support in many cities and villages in Iraq, and mosques in Baghdad are openly showing allegiance to it. And even with all that, those people still say it doesn’t have enough power! The reason is that at the time, the circumstances were pleasing to Washington – but today Washington’s interest is at stake.” [Nasīhatu Mushfaq]
And he also said:

“I send my greetings and those of my brothers to our brothers, the Mujahideen in Iraq. And I congratulate them on the establishment of the Islamic State of Iraq, and encourage the Islamic Ummah to back this young, fledgling state, for it – Allah permitting – is the gateway to the liberation of Palestine and the restoration of the Islamic Caliphate. And I also encourage all my Mujahid brothers in Iraq to join this blessed caravan to rescue Iraq of the Caliphate from the schemes of the Crusaders and their agents, the traitorous religion-traders, and to ruin what the beggar Abdul Aziz al-Hakim conspired about in Washington with his master, the defender of the defeated cross.” [The Realities of the Conflict between Islam and Kufr]

And he also said:

“The ISI’s banner and creed are one of the purest banners and creeds in Iraq. It has established an Islamic state that resorts to shari’ah only. It also declares that affiliation with Islam and loyalty to faith are above all other affiliations and loyalties, something in whose mud many movements that are affiliated with Islam are drowned in. It is a state that advocates and seeks and spares no effort to restore the awaited caliphate state. It also incites Muslims on this issue [‘Second Round of Open Interview’]

And major empowerment isn’t a condition for establishing an Islamic State, Dr. Ayman said:

“The so-called Hamas government in Gaza and Ramallah has been established and we didn’t hear those who condemn the Islamic State in Iraq, nobody said it’s not legitimate or lacks power. The half government in Ramallah and the other half in Gaza can’t even meet with each other! And the prime minister can only move if the Israeli army gives him permission! And many of their ministers and deputies have been arrested and imprisoned by Israel, but did we hear anyone say they aren’t legitimate or they lack power? Hamas even had to let down two thirds of its seats and abandon four fifths of Palestine and give authority to Mahmud Abbas to negotiate in the name of the Palestinians, but we didn’t hear those people condemning it or saying it lacks power!

And the Islamic State in Iraq – with the blessing and permission of Allah – has much more territorial control, soldiers and supporters than the so-called government of Hamas, its leaders can move freely, they threaten America, and America recognizes its danger. They defend every Muslim cause, from Grozny to Sebta and Melillia, they promised to free the Muslim prisoners, especially the symbol of Daawa and Jihad, Sh. Omar Abdurrahman, and they even launch campaigns against America in his name! And even with all that you consider it lacking power?

And on the other side, you have the Hamas leaders who declare themselves innocent from the Mujahideen, they even said in Moscow in a visit, that the Chechnya conflict is a “Russian interior problem”! And every day Hamas and Fatah fight and kill each other, and they justify it, then Arab regimes come to mediate between them! While the Islamic State in Iraq announced it only fights the spies and the traitors, and it declared itself innocent from those who spill unlawful blood, its leaders are ready to be judged and punished if they fall into any legal (Shar’i) crime, and even with all that, there are still media campaigns filled with lies against them, and you still believe them? What is this contradiction?

The reality is, the Hamas game where it goes concession after concession, is something the Zionists and Crusaders want, and the Arab regimes provide everything for it, while the establishment of the Islamic State in Iraq is an Islamic project of Jihad, being fought by the Zionists and the Crusaders – and hence by the Arab regimes as well.” [Nasīhatu Mushfaq]

And also it’s not a condition for the state to be free from mistakes, Dr. Ayman said:

“The Islamic Emirate is declared once it applies Islamic Law (Sharia) in the territories under its control, even if it makes mistakes, and Allah knows best” [Al-Liqā Al-Maftūh 2nd episode]

And retreating from some areas into the desert doesn’t mean they became a fighting organization after being a legitimate State. Also when the Arabian Peninsula fell out of the governance of As- Siddīq (Abū Bakr ra), that didn’t mean his State wasn’t legitimate. Likewise according to him, The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, their Statehood didn’t end because they retreated into the mountains.

Dr. Ayman said:

“Ask those who cast doubt on the enablement of the ISI and its control of land: Can anyone deny that the blessed state controls, at least, one square kilometer of the land of Iraq? If the answer is yes, and it is so, praise be to Allah, then why do you deny it the right to establish an Islamic state on the land it controls? What area did the state in Madina al Munawarah control before the raid of the confederates (ghazwatul Ahzāb)? And how was the situation in it during the raid of the confederates? The Qur’ān describes this and says:
“Behold! They came on you from above you and from below you, and behold, the eyes became dim and the hearts gaped up to the throats, and you imagined various (vain) thoughts about Allah. In that situation were the Believers tried: they were shaken as by a tremendous shaking. And behold! The Hypocrites and those in whose hearts is a disease (even) say: “(Allah) and His Messenger promised us nothing but delusion!” Behold! A party among them said: “You men of Yathrib! you cannot stand (the attack)! Therefore go back!” And a band of them ask for leave of the Prophet, saying, “Truly our houses are bare and exposed,” though they were not exposed they intended nothing but to run away.” [Al-Ahzab 33 verses 10-13] Almighty Allah then says: “You have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah. When the Believers saw the Confederate forces, they said: “This is what Allah and his Messenger had promised us, and Allah and His Messenger told us what was true.” And it only added to their faith and their zeal in obedience. Among the Believers are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah. Of them some have completed their vow (to the extreme), and some (still) wait: but they have never changed (their determination) in the least: That Allah may reward the men of Truth for their Truth, and punish the Hypocrites if that be His Will, or turn to them in Mercy: for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. And Allah turned back the Unbelievers for (all) their fury: no advantage did they gain; and enough is Allah for the believers in their fight. And Allah is full of Strength, able to enforce His Will. And those of the People of the Book who aided them – Allah did take them down from their strongholds and cast terror into their hearts, (So that) some you slew, and some you made prisoners. And He made you heirs of their lands, their houses, and their goods, and of a land which you had not frequented (before). And Allah has power over all things.” [ Al-Ahzab 33 verses 21-27]  Are these not Qur’ānic facts?” [Al-Liqā Al-Maftūh 2nd episode]

And he also said:

“About those who object to the Islamic State by saying that it is not fully consolidated, Sh. Usama says about them: “Whoever ponders upon how the first state of Islam has been during Uhud and Al-Ahzab when everyone was terrified, and when the Arabian Peninsula almost turned apostate after the death of the messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, would know that absolute consolidation is not a precondition for vowing allegiance to the imam or the establishment of the Islamic State.” [Al-Liqā Al-Maftūh 2nd episode]

And Shaykh Usāma ibn Lāden said:

“The fall of the State doesn’t mean everything has ended, and doesn’t mean that the Jama’a of the Muslims and their Imam has ended” [As-Sabīl li ihbāt Al-Mū’āmarāt]

Also Abū Bakr Al-Husainī Al-Baghdādi received the Bay’ah as an Amīr of the believers in the Islamic State of Irāq, he didn’t receive the Bay’ah as amīr of an organization. We can read the following in a statement by Shūrah council of the Islamic State in Irāq:

“The Shura Council has taken its time for all the past period, meeting the ministers of the State, its amirs, Ahl al-Hal wa al-Aqd, people of authority and opinion, and we can send glad tidings to the Islamic Ummah, especially its Mujahidin vanguard, especially the shaykhs of the ummah and the leaders of jihad everwhere that the opinions have all agreed upon the allegiance to the Shaykh, the Mujahid, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi al-Hussayni al-Qurashi as Commander of the Faithful (Amir al- Mumineen) in the Islamic State in Iraq, and appointing the Shaykh Mujahid Abu Abdullah al- Hussayni al-Qurashi as his minister and second in command. Those two respectable Shuyukh are people of abundant knowledge and pioneers in da’wah and Jihad for the sake of Allah, we consider them such and Allah will be their judge” [Bayān Majlis Shūra Dawlat Al-‘Irāq Al-Islāmiyyah]

This was also confirmed by the official spokesman of the Islamic State Abū Muhammad Al-‘Adnāni As-Shāmi in Ramadan 1434 H when he said:

“And when we lost our Amir Abu Umar al-Baghdadi, Allah blessed us with better than him insha’Allah – we consider him such and Allah will be his judge – our Emir Abu Bakr al-Husayni al-Qurashi al-Baghdadi, Amir al-Mumineen may Allah protect him and guide his footsteps. Likewise is his deputy Abi Abdillah Al-hasany Al-Qurashy Al-Baghdadi hafidahullah. And if we lost our minister of war, the lion Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, he had raised men and left behind him crashing jungle lions, then here is Abu Sulayman An-Nasir Li Dinillah in the battle field, so gald tidings and don’t worry, the Islamic State is staying by the permission of Allah, despite the anger of the hateful” [The Islamic State will stay – inna Dawlat Al-Islām Bāqiyah]

Instead of opposing this description (Amīr of the believers in the Islamic State) he (Dr. Ayman) confirmed it by reciting this poem:

In the land of two rivers (Iraq), It (JN) is supported by batallions***

And by an Islamic State that assaults and roars***

To her, daily in Iraq are new incidents (fightings) ***

In the sea of deaths, the deaths being like valley openings [i.e. many] ***

The soldiers of Abubakr have confronted apostasy***

Triggered by the dollar, inciting and gathering it***

So it’s a duty upon the Islamic State to expand and to destroy the borders drawn by Sykes-Picot, not to isolate itself within it. And it is upon the Muslims to support it not to wage war against it. And from the most important forms of support is pledging allegiance to it.

Dr. Ayman said:

“I also plead to the Muslim Nation to support the mujahideen in Iraq and especially the Islamic State of Iraq, as this is the shortest way to change the bitter situation in the heart of the Islamic World, and heading towards Bayt al-Maqdis and breaking the boundaries and borders the corrupt tyrants had placed between us and our brothers everywhere.” 

“And, we will [always] be incapable of stopping the crimes in Palestine, and in others besides it in the Islamic places, if we don’t break these boundaries… or else, we will just be satisfied with protesting, shouting, giving speeches and lectures every time the Crusader Zionist enemy stands against us and our brothers with a new massacre, and just return to our homes broken, miserable and incapable.”

“And today, Allah granted us this rare opportunity that, in the beloved Iraq, jihad has risen free of governments and regime chains, and a united Mujahid Islamic state was founded. It destroyed the American crusader plan in the heart of the Islamic World, and is burning to head towards al-Aqsa Mosque and Palestine.” So, let us support this blessed jihad in the Iraq of the Caliphate, and let us support this patient young country and to not back away from this obligation and that responsibility as Allah will bring down on us His punishment and discontent…”  [6 Years after the Aggression on Iraq]

He also said:

“I remind the brothers of what Sh. Usama – may Allah protect him – said in his latest speech:

“If [America] and its agents are defeated in Iraq with the permission of Allah, there won’t be much before the caravan of the Mujahideen starts its road, in successive convoys going from Baghdad to Anbar, Mosul, Diyala and Salaheddin, until Hittin (a historic battle) comes back to us with the permission of Allah” [Al-Liqā Al-Maftūh 2nd episode]

He also said:

“The Islamic State in Iraq and our Mujahideen brothers will not feel at ease until they destroy the borders between them and Bayt al-Maqdis, and unite with their brothers there and fight the Zionist Jews, and save the Aqsa Mosque with the permission of Allah.” [6 Years after the Aggression on Iraq]

He also said:

“And I remind them of the enlightening words of the martyr of Islam as we consider him, Shaykh Abdullah Azzam, when he said: “Truth doesn’t care about geographical borders, and doesn’t limit itself to limits delimited by geographers. Truth transcends untainted human mind, telling it; how can you say that so and so issue is true on this side of the mountain and false on the other, or true on one border of the river, and false on the other” [Arba’ūna ‘āman ‘ala suqūt Al-Qūds]

He also said:

“and I ask Allah subhanah that He gives victory to the Islamic State in Iraq and firmness to its leader Abu Umar al-Baghdadi may Allah protect him, and to give ground to this State so that it gathers all the Mujahideen and Muslim brothers in Iraq, so that an Jihadi Islamic State emerges in the Iraq of Khilafah that sets its eyes towards Jerusalem and move forth to establish the Caliphate State that was fallen by the crusaders and allies” [Duroos wa ‘ibar wa ahdāth ‘ithām]

He also said:

“This Islamic Emirate which is waging Jihad and performing Ribat, and also the Islamic State in Iraq, must be supported by fighting in its ranks, and supporting it with money, experience and information. The Muslims should first repent from their betrayal of Taliban before and should know that Allah will ask them about their betrayal” [Al-Liqā Al-Maftūh 2nd episode]

He also said:

“The ISI has now developed from the level of the Mujahidin’s Shurah at the time of the martyrdom of Abu-Mus’ab al-Zarqawi Rahimahullah, and that is because of Allah’s guidance. The ISI today is waging a ferocious war on several fronts against the Crusaders, apostates, and Iran’s agents. Therefore the Muslim ummah bears a great responsibility in supporting them so that they will foil the plans of the Americans and the Iranians, and consolidate the state of Islam in the heart of the Muslim World, and so as to support the move of the mujahidin in Iraqi toward the environs of Jerusalem, so that the mujahidin will meet there, both those from outside of the blessed Palestine and those from inside it, to herald the elimination of Israel, Allah willing” [Al-Liqā Al-Maftūh 2nd episode]
So it’s not appropriate to say; The Islamic State is legitimate in Iraq but not in Shām, because the land of Shām is a neighbouring country.

Dr. Ayman said:

“So why don’t you, O people of Pakistan, join with the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan? It is a Shar’i (legal) Emirate governing Most of Afghanistan, and it’s fighting a Crusader enemy of Islam, it rules with Sharia over its lands, so why don’t you unite with it and support it? […] Unite with the Islamic Emirate that Muslims have pledged allegiance to in the East and the West!” [Tawhīd Al-Kalimah Hawla Kalimat At-Tawhīd]

This is a State and not an army, and it’s not allowed according to the Shari’ah to appoint two Imāms in two neighbouring countries. So the one who affirms to the legitimacy of the State in Irāq and also sees the legitimacy of a neighbouring upcoming state which hasn’t been established, giving away its matter to “the people of Syria”, making a difference between the 2 states because of fabricated borders, has indeed acknowledged the borders drawn by Sykes-Picot even if it was partial. And there is no one infallible other than Rasūli Allah ,ﷺ

Dr. Ayman said:

“And the third difference (between the Islamic state and the nationalist state) is that the Islamic state sees itself responsible for all Islamic lands, as scholars have said: Muslim lands are considered one single entity, while the nationalist state only sees itself within its borders” [Tawhīd Al-Kalimah Hawla Kalimat At-Tawhīd]

And he also said:

“The sixth goal: Working to establish a Caliphate that doesn’t recognize nationalist states nor the borders that the invaders have established, but implements a Caliphate upon the Prophetic methodology, believes in the unity of all Muslim lands and the brotherhood between all Muslims, erases the borders, and strives to propagate justice and Shura and liberation of all Muslim lands” [Wathīqat Nusrat Al-Islām]

So the organizations are obliged to give Bay’ah to the State, not the opposite. So whoever demands the State to exit (Shām) is actually demanding its partial dissolution.

Dr. Ayman said:

“The State is a step in establishing the Caliphate, which is more superior than organizations. So the organizations should pledge allegiance to the States, and not the opposite. And the Amir al- Mumineen Abu Umar al-Baghdadi – may Allah protect him – is among the leaders of the Muslims and the Mujahideen today, we ask Allah to give him firmness and victory.” [2nd meeting with Sahab Media]

And he also said:

“And I tell them (the other Mujahideen in Iraq): The Islamic State in Iraq is your State, your Emirate and your government, who are you going to unite with if you don’t unite with them? Rush towards goodness with them and heal our hearts and give us the glad tiding that we’ve been waiting for.” [4th meeting with As-Sahāb Media]

Dr. Ayman was never Amīrul Mu’minīn for Islamic State of Iraq neither was Shaykh Usāma ibn Lāden may Allah have mercy on him, rather they had a bay’ah to Imām Mullah Muhammad ‘Umar, the amīr of the Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan. Mullah ‘Umar has never been Amīrul Mu’minīn of the Islamic State in Iraq, so how can someone say that Dr. Ayman has the same power (might/abilities) as the amīr of the believers?

Dr. Ayman said:

“The ISI(Islamic State of Iraq) and the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, and add to them the Islamic Emirate in Caucasus, are Islamic emirates that are not under the control of one ruler. We hope that the caliphate state will be established soon to unite them with all Muslims. Shaykh Usama Bin Ladin, may Allah watch over him, is just a soldiers of the leader of the faithful, Mulla Muhammad Omar, may God watch over him. All those you have mentioned support each other and cooperate with each other in support of Islam and jihad. [Al-Liqā Al-Maftūh 2nd episode]

And he also said:

“Mulla Muhammad Omar – may Allah protect him – is the Amir/Leader of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and the Mujahideen that joined it, and Sh. Usama bin Laden – may Allah protect him – is one of his soldiers” [Al-Liqā Al-Maftūh 2nd episode]

And he also said:

“We renew the pledge of allegiance to Amir al-Mumineen Mulla Muhammad Omar Mujahid – may Allah protect him – obedience and hearing, in matters we like and dislike, to wage Jihad in the path of Allah, and establish Sharia, and protect the oppressed.” [Watarrajala Al-Fāris Al-Nabīl]

And he also said:

“And those who claim that we claim for ourselves the Caliphate over all Muslims, how can he forget that we pledged allegiance to Mulla Muhammad Omar Mujahid – may Allah protect him – the Amir of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan?” [Al-Imān Yasra’ Al-Istikbār]

As for the Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan, it is not working for expanding outside its current borders, it assured the nations of the world and its neighboring countries they won’t intervene in their affairs and not be any form of danger to them (except for those who fight them in Afghanistan). This was also acknowledged by their official and famous announcements, which were refuted by some scholars and students of Islamic knowledge. Among them:

“The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) wants good relations and mutual interactions with the world, particularly, with the Islamic world and the neighbors in the light of Islamic rules, national interests, mutual respect and joint cooperation. The Islamic Emirate does not intend to interfere in the internal affairs of others nor allows others to interfere in its internal affairs. The Islamic Emirate assures the entire world that it will not allow anyone to use the soil of Afghanistan against any one and makes it clear that it respects all international laws and principles in the light of its Islamic rules and national interests. […]

The media of the enemy portrays us as if we wanted war with our neighbors, but the reality is that International laws don’t permit such actions. The ongoing Imperialist war against so-called terror is actually a war against human values, justice and peace […] I urge Islamic countries, powerful neighboring countries and world organizations to play a positive role” [1433H Eid Message from the IEA, and you find the same things in other statements]

It is not possible to expand outside the borders drawn by Sykes-Picot except by fighting the brown and the black(i.e. all people)

And Dr. Ayman did not name himself an Imām for a State or organization, so how can someone say that he has power over the amīr of the believers in the Islamic State in Irāq?

Dr. Ayman said:

“We want an Islamic Caliphate in which the Ummah freely chooses its leader, and pledges allegiance to him upon Quran and Sunnah of the Prophet peace be upon him, and obey him as long as he obeys Allah. If that happens, then we are with him. If Muslims on any part of earth establish the rule of Islam and choose an Imam, then that choice will be also our choice, because we aren’t here for power.

That’s why we tell the people of Sham: we are not here to take away your right to choose who will rule over you. Rather, if you establish the rule of Islam and choose someone to rule over you with Quran and Sunnah of the Prophet peace be upon him, then your choice is our choice.” [Al-Imān Yasra’ Al-Istikbār]

The specific pledge of fighting – suppose it happened, and was legally valid with such innovated manner- it isn’t higher in authority or more committed to the ruling than the pledge of allegiance made by the Shūra council, the commanders, leaders and judges to Abū Bakr Al-Baghdādi as an amīr for the believers in the Islamic State. So it cannot reduce his powers in the State politics, then how can they avoid him from doing the obliged? And from the greatest of obligations is the expansion of the Islamic State to the entire world.

Dr. Ayman said:

“The martyr of Islam, Sh. Abdullah Azzam may Allah have mercy on him said: “The allegiance is always upon goodness, because we always pledge to do good, and it is not permissible to pledge allegiance for bad actions and filth, like those who pledge allegiance then are asked to do actions that anger Allah like spying on people or uncover the ‘awra (hidden defects) of people.” until he said: “And it is not permissible for someone to use his allegiance to force him to not do good that is prescribed in the quran and sunnah, like waging Jihad in the path of Allah – because in that case it becomes an allegiance in bad actions, and there is no obedience to the creation in disobedience to the Creator.” [Nasīhatu Mushfiq]

That’s why they (IS) concluded that implementing what came in the letter would be disobedience to the Creator, like it can be heard in “Bāqiya wa Tatamadad” by Amīr of the believers and the audio message: “Fadharhum wama Yaftarūn” by the official spokesman, even if the writer perceived it as an order or ruling, especially since the risāla is directed to a State Amīr from an Amīr of an organization who acknowledged the legitimacy of this State for 7 years before Jawlāni defected and split the ranks. So the risāla surprised them by rulings which indicate that Dr. Ayman doesn’t see the legitimacy of the state, and the relationship between them wasn’t built on this foundation. I copied some of his sayings that contradict what it stated, that’s why there was so much gossip and increase in questions and assumptions that they were almost sure he will reject the bay’ah of the disobedient ones, rather Jawlāni and his friends were surprised when their Bay’ah was accepted!

I ask the reader to give a moment so I can narrate some events;

When the Islamic State in Irāq & Shām was announced, and Jawlāni came out openly splitting (the ranks) and disobeying the command (when he himself used to consider Abū Bakr Al-Baghdādi an Imām for a legitimate State, and he presented himself as his representative in Shām). The soldiers defected from him and the Jabhah didn’t have any traces left in most of the wilāyat, jawlani asked to meet the Shūra council of the Islamic State. The meeting took place in the end of (Islamic month) Jumada II and Jawlāni offered to return back to the obedience of his amīr, with some conditions attached:

The name “Jabhat Al-Nosrah” has to stay as a representative of the islamic State in Shām, adding a phrase that shows they really follow the State.

■ The rāyah (flag) of “Jabhat Al-Nosrah” has to stay on the centers on its side, the rāyah of the Islamic State.

■ He must have the command and the opinion in matters concerning wilāyāt of Ash-Shām.

The Islamic State rejected his requests, so he accepted to return to obedience without conditions – due to the collapse of his front -, so he promised to visit the centers and the fronts by himself in order to tell the leaders and soldiers that he returned to the obedience and that he’s a soldier of the Islamic State until the misconceptions are finished and the fitnah between the soldiers is stopped. Before doing this he asked to delay the matter for a couple of days so that he could meet with all the close ones who approved of his defection and he can give them the news (out of respect for one another because they were used to doing that). He went but he disappeared because of the intense pressure that he encountered from those, so he sat in Al-Qalamoun region desperately, until the letter reached him from the Dr. through a media person who accompanies him. He read the letter and couldn’t believe it saying: “I was so surprised by the content that I forgot to make sujood thanking Allah”

When Jawlāni showed the letter to those who were close to him, they doubted the authenticity because they knew about the sayings of Dr. Ayman concerning the State’s legitimacy and its obliged expansion before the events of Shām happened. Also they knew he praised ‘al-nusra’ front and since it was part of the dawla and not vice versa. So Jawlāni was forced to add footnotes to the letter with the phrase; “Markaz Al-Fajr” and he spread it on the internet and leaked a copy to Al-Jazīrah media channel. This was the first time in the history of Jihād that a personal letter directed to the leaders of Jihād was spread on satellite TV; he did all this in order to refute those who doubted the authenticity of the letter. Note that “Markaz Al-Fajr” has nothing to do with the private writings and letters of Dr. Ayman, and he started spreading passages from the letter to his private circle (of friends) and his soldiers through the mobile phone.

And these events were witnessed by some members of the State’s Shūra council and some of the people close to Jawlāni (members of ‘JN’ Shūra). One of them even left them when he saw the hypocrisy. The facts of the “return of Jawlāni to the Islamic State” meeting were restricted in detail in the notebook Mahdat Ijtimā’. But Jawlāni took away the notebook after the end of the meeting saying that he wanted a copy, before he went hiding with the mentioned notebook. And for this event there are witnesses, all of them are alive all praise due to Allah.

So the reality which was hidden from many and in Allah we seek refuge is, this letter published on 13th of Rajab (Risālat Al-Hukm mina Al-Zawāhiri) was the cause for splitting the ranks and gave live to the name Jabhat Al-Nusrah after it was ended and collapsed after Shaykh Al-Baghdādi revoked its authority.

So let’s go back to the misconception(s) surrounding Bay’ah….
Those who disagree with the Islamic State aren’t infallible even if they were pioneers in knowledge and Jihād, Dr. Ayman said:

“Sh. Hamid al-Ali, and Sh. Abu Baseer al-Tartusi, they have all our respect and consideration, and we saw in them firm and strong stances in supporting the jihad and the Mujahideen, we ask Allah to reward them for it. As for their opposition to the Islamic State in Iraq, nobody is exempt from mistakes, and when there’s disagreement we solve it with evidence and research, until we find the truth and give victory to Islam” [First interview with Sahab Media]

And the Islamic State according to Dr. Ayman was legal and Bāqiya (remaining) just before the announcement of expansion to Bilād As-Shām. Dr. Ayman said:

“Those who defended Islam, Jihad and Ahl al-Sunna in Iraq are the noble Mujahideen, the Islamic State in Iraq being the foremost of them, and it is still, with Allah’s blessing, firm and did not change its aqeeda and did not retract still clinging to the foundations of Islam despite the filthy war against it.
The noble Mujahideen, and the Islamic State of Iraq at the foremost, are owed debts by every free honorable Muslim in Iraq. If it wasn’t for them, the destiny of Sunnis in Iraq would be like the one of the Sunnis in Iran, at the hands of Ismail the Safavid.

The noble Mujahideen, and the Islamic State of Iraq at the foremost, are owed debts by every free honorable Muslim, as they are the solid rock on which the American agenda in the region was crushed, the project to divide Iraq then Saudi Arabia and Egypt. And those who saved the Ummah from this devilish American plot are the Mujahidin of Iraq, and at the forefront, the Islamic State of Iraq, may Allah reward them.

Those noble Mujahidin, and the Islamic Stat of Iraq at the foremost, have presented a lot of sacrifices, so many that you can’t even count them: thousands of martyrs, much more in injured, prisoners, handicapped, widows, orphans, refugees, exiled for the sake of Allah, they presented all that despite the huge media campaign was against them, from America and from Arab regimes – and everybody knows from where they are sponsored.  And even with the misguiding campaign by many of the head-covered bearded guys (shekhs) especially in the gulf countries  , the noble Mujahideen and the ISI at the foremost, never abandoned their mission and kept protecting the sanctity of the Muslims, not because they wanted a worldly benefit but because they wanted the pleasure  of Allah. And here they are today, firm and proud like a mountain, going from victory to victory and from conquest to conquest.” [Tawhīd Al-Kalimah Hawla Kalimat At-Tawhīd]

Destroying the State and undermining it will only be in the benefit of the tawāgīt, Dr. Ayman said:

“And so, I ask those who doubt the Islamic State in Iraq, in whose interest is the destruction of the Islamic State that was established after all this time spent waiting for it?” [Al-Liqā Al-Maftūh 2nd episode]

Therefore, it is a sign of ungratefulness for the blessings and not fulfiling the debts; the removal of the Islamic State from shām, to accept the pledge of the rebellious and the disobedient ones, to ignore the islamic State’s virtues and blowing up their mistakes, and threatening them with a war in Iraq, describing the State as Hurūriyah (khawarij), extremist and comparing it with the morals of the rawāfidh, or ruling on the state that it is a Tā’efatu Mumtan’iah (refraining sect) with force from seeking Judgement in Quran and Sunnah with more extremism than the early khawārij, and that the individual ruling on every single individual among the Islamic state is that of the group.

Both Imāms Abū Umar Al-Husayni Al-Baghdādi and Abū Hamzah Al-Muhājir promised that the state will remain and expand until it infiltrates the borders and conquers (back) Bayt Al-Maqdis, the Arabian Peninsula, Indonesia, the Philippines, Andalusia and Rome. And they took an oath on this.  

I swear on The One who took them as shuhada , we will not rest until we honor their oath and fulfill their promise with Allah’s Help and Power, as a gratitude for them and for their blood, and Allah is a witness for what we say. We will never bring to realization the dream of the Jews & Christians who want to see the State’s dissolution, even if it will only be a single centimeter of earth.

In conclusion, Dr Ayman said:

“I ask the dear brother to review the speech of Sh. Usama completely, he responded to many of the allegations and rumors about the Islamic State of Iraq, may Allah give it victory.” [Al-Liqā Al- Maftūh 2nd episode]

And he also said:

“I ask the dear brother to review the speech of Sh. Usama in which he talked positively about the Islamic State in Iraq, and about those who pledged allegiance to it, and asked the Muslims of Iraq to unite around it.” [Al-Liqā Al-Maftūh 2nd episode]

Link to speech entitled: “The Way to Foil the Conspiracies” by Mujaddid Shaykh Usāma ibn Lāden Allah accept him:  



After all this I say: If there was a consultation and supportive relationship – even if supposedly some called it (this relationship) ‘Allegiance’ out of humbleness and mistakenly – And there is no one infallible other than the messenger of Allah ﷺ they didn’t meant to bring down the Islamic State as a Legit State, and Dr. Ayman didn’t mean to claim the position of amīr of the believers for it [Dawlah], and this is clear and abundant in the official speeches, statements and the official releases of the dawlah and the Dr. [and I quoted some of his words]. So Dawla still remains a State, and its amīr remains the amīr of the believers, and Dr. Ayman remains the amīr of an organization. And he distances himself from being an amīr of a State usually emphasizing the Bay’ah he has on his neck for Mullah Umar the amīr of the Emirate of Afghanistan.

So how can the relationship between the State and the organization affect the power of the amīr of the believers in the Islamic State?, even if some supposedly called it ‘bay’ah’ whoever he may be especially when we witnessed the dangerous methodological disagreements, and the leadership of the tanthīm (alqaeda) followed the media magicians in every turn they made, and they commanded them (IS) to withdraw  from the frontlines in Shām, and the Islamic State was  fought together with everyone it from Muhājirīn to Ansār, while the kūfār, murtadīn and their tawagīt enjoyed it, and from Allah we seek help.

As for the claim of seeking judgment with Dr. Ayman, this misconception was refuted by Shaykh Al-Adnāni and asked the opponents for a mubāhala (envying the curse of Allah upon the liar).

I say: How can Dr. Ayman judge between the State, and some one, two or three men while he will benefit from accepting Jawlāni’s pledge? among the conditions of a judge is, that his senses should be fine so he can distinguish between the liar and the truthful by seeing the face of the individual and hearing his voice. It also needs repeating the same questions two or three times for the prosecutor, the defendant and the witnesses for him to compare their answers. 

So how is it possible for Dr. Ayman to see the face of the leaders and the disobedient and hear their voices so he can accept the testimony of the truthful one and reject the claims of the liar while he is in Khūrassān? And how is he going to ask them and compare their answers when most of the correspondence between Khūrassān and Shām needs two months in most cases?

The reason why the State wrote a letter to Dr. Ayman, was to hurry him in rejecting the Bay’ah from the disobedient, they didn’t do that because they sought judgement from him as a Judge.

So this issue and some others were the reason for Abū Abdullāh As-Shāmi to issue his verdict on the State; that the State is refraining from seeking judgment in Qurān & Sunnah with force.

Finally I say: For the one who wants to know how a jihadi group that fights for Allah’s Sake turns into a group that fights for the Sake of the taghūt (like some groups in Syria), let him read the history. Let him know that the love of the person for prestige, money and leadership will become pride, pride will become jealousy, jealousy will become arrogance, arrogance will become hatred, and hatred enmity, and enmity will become dispute with the opponent, and dispute happens by hiding tawhīd, and displaying shirk, avoiding the muwahidīn and flattering the mushrikīn in the first place. After that is the blatant kūfr and a war in the end, due to the following of desires/lusts and holding on to the misconceptions, unless Allah protects His servant due to His Mercy. 

From Allah we seek help, in Him we put our trust, there is no power and nor strength except with Him, Allah Alone is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs for us.

All praise due to Allah

Oh Alshabab of Somalia: The silly dotard gave allegiance to the Taghut of Taliban!


By: Abū Maysarah Ash-Shāmi

Praise be to Allah, who endeared to us honesty and Monotheism, hated to us immorality and polytheism, and chose us from among his servants to enforce His book by the iron. Peace and blessings be upon the Imam of Al-wala walbara, who disavowed the tawaghit and partners (in worship), puting his trust on The One and Alone, The Alive and The sustainer of all existence, The Lord of heaven and earth:

Oh Alshabab of Somalia , whoever wanted al-Qaida, al-Qaida of Bin Laden has died, but whoever wanted the unity (of muslims), the unity will remain till the day of judgement.

The veracious, trustworthy (peace be upon him) said: “A group of my nation will continue fighting for the truth and will be victorious till the day of Resurrection”.

Yes, Imam Usamah died (may Allah accept him) but then he didn’t die, he only died by the departure of his soul from his body, and the rise of his soul to the heaven, we consider him such and Allah will be his judge,With regards to his da’wah; it was the word of Ibrahim – The intimate friend (peace be upon him) which was manifested by Imam Ibn Laden and will last till the day of judgement.

{And [mention, O Muhammad], when Ibraim said to his father and his people, “Indeed, I am disassociated from that which you worship…Except for He who created me; and indeed, He will guide me.”…..And he made it a word remaining among his descendants that they might return [to it] }

Yes, the word of Monotheism will remain but not in the organization of Tajahhum and division, but in the supported victorious group; the muslims’ unity and their khalif, people of Al-athar (Hadith) and frontlinlines. Whereas for the enemies of Alwalaa walbaraa, {…Do you see of them any remains?}

Oh Alshabab of Somalia, the silly dotard announced his oath of allegiance to the Taghut of Taliban without consulting you, and without consulting the ‘Islamic’ groups and the ‘jihadi’ parties and without consulting his brothers; the ‘ummah’ of Saruriyyah (followers of muhammad bin Sarur), Muflisin(bankrupts) brotherhood, the Murji’ah and the Jahmiyyah… but even without consulting the laymen Rafidis and the grave-worshipping animals who are “Muslims” excused due to ignorance according to his claim.

Oh Alshabab of Somalia, Taliban is a group that is using strength to reject Alwalaa walbaraa. They fight for the sake of land and country, and they become peaceful for the sake of land and country.

Its Taghut announced that his group will stop both defensive and offensive Jihad if the occupiers get out of Afghanistan, while his “Shura Council” seeks friendship with the Tawaghit and the apostates of Pakistan, Qatar, Afghanistan, Iran and others, but shows enmity to the Awliya’ (allies of Allah) and the Mujahideen of Khorasan! Oh Alshabab of Somalia, the Taliban Dajjal Akhtar Mansour lied to the Ummah for years in the name of Mullah Omar to propagate nationalism and pacifism among the fighting factions and the common people of Khurasan!

He also sent Delegations to the Tawaghit and Murtaddeen shelters; To Iran, Qatar and others in the name of Mullah Omar! He also followed the delusions of the Sunni-Shiite rapprochement in the name of Mullah Omar! He fought the renewed Caliphate in the name of Mullah Omar!

If it were not for the Islamic state and its Wilayah of Khurasan; Akhtar and whoever would succeed him would have lied and acted sinful in the name of Mullah Omar until the appearance of the blind Dajjal.

Oh Alshabab of Somalia, Whoever of you who wishes to pledge allegiance, should pledge allegiance to the Muslims’ leader, Amirul mu’mineen Khalif Ibrahim bin Awad al-Husseini (may Allah protect him). Otherwise, would one of you accept to pledge allegiance to the Taghut of Taliban, who considers the two taghuts of Qatar; Hamad and Tamim (Aala thani) as his brothers? will one of you accept to pledge allegiance to the Taghut of Taliban , who considers the Tawaghit of Iraq, Khurasan and the Fares -Iran- as his brothers? will one of you accept to pledge allegiance to the Taghut of Taliban , who considers the Tawaghit governments and the Rafidhis in the Muslim countries and their leaders as brothers to him?

Will one of you accept to pledge allegiance to the Taghut of Taliban, who seeks closeness to the Pakistani secret intelligence and Qatari ambassadors but distance himself from the Mujahideen in the path of Allah? Furthermore, the taghut of Taliban does all that, and also announces his intention to refrain from both defensive and offensive Jihad. He fights only the Mujahideen of khilafah for the sake of his chair!

Wallahi there will be no good in you if you pledge allegiance to the taghut of Taliban after which his matter has become crystal clear and well known everywhere, among the Arabs and non-Arabs, the East and the West and among the Sunni muslims and the people of apostasy and the Cross…

Doesn’t one of you feel ashamed to have his allegiance to a taghut Dajjal? If you are not ashamed, By Allah, the Islamic state will not be ashamed of the truth, and the Islamic State will thereby fight the Taliban taghut and his associates that give bay’ah to him in Khurasan and outside khurasan even if the hypocrites and apostates will hate that.

Oh Alshabab of Somalia, didn’t you hear your ‘wise’ silly dotard who didn’t leave an aspect among the aspects of Jahiliyyah era but imitated it? The people of Jahiliyyah:

“..Follow fancy and conjecture, and turn their faces from what Allah has given them, and they contradict themselves in the aspect of affiliation, they associate themselves with Ibrahim but reveal abandoning to follow him. They don’t regard as truth except what their party says. But then, they are not aware about what their party says, When they left the command of Allah to unite , and committed what Allah forbade of division; every party became happy with what they had, They have an extreme enmity for the religion that they affiliate themselves. They love the religion of the infidels who are enemies to them, to their Prophet and to their party, And they deny what they already proved to be part of their religion, They became very Fanatic to the party, and they claim to act upon what they have of ‘truth’ ; while they abandon it. According to them, it is a must for the individual to blindly imitate his party, and to Support the party members wether they are the aggressors or the aggrieved. They accuse the followers of the apostles of insincerity and being earthly. They prefer the religion of the infidels to the Muslims’ religion, and they clearly contradict themselves when they belied the truth”  [Editted Summary of  The book  ‘The Jahiliyya matters’  by Imam Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab (may Allah have mercy on him)]

Yes, The silly dotard combined both bigotry and contradiction, and subjected the truth to his whim, he took from it what comforms with his desires, and left away what contradicted it …He claims to be on the methodology of Usamah Bin Laden (may Allah accept him) – then fights the state that has been protected by Usama bin Laden, which he made the gateway to the conquest of Jerusalem!

He Claims to be on the methodology of Al Qaeda, then he supports the enemies of alQaeda’s Imam; the Sururis, the Jaamia and the Muslisim brotherhood! He claims to be on the methodology of Al Qaeda, then prefers the religion of the Sahawat over the religion of the two Sheikhs; Al-Zarqawi and Abu Hamza al-Muhajir (May Allah accept them both)!

Yes, The silly dotard contradicted himself too much … Sometimes he confirms that the Islamic state is a legitimate state that is independent of al-Qaeda and the Taliban Emirate, then he claims that it pledged a Major allegiance(bay’ah) to him and to Mullah Omar who died years before the announcement of the khilafah. He sometimes says that the Islamic state is legitimate and was formed through shura, then he says that it is upon the methodology of the tyrant kings and that it rejected to come to court for the law of Allah! And sometimes he curses the Sahawat and declares that they are agents of the Crusaders, then he renders the Sahawat Mujahideen for the sake of Allah and persecuted martyrs!

He sometimes calls for co-operation with the Islamic state against the Crusaders, the Shiites, the batiniyyah, the secularists and the atheists, and then calls for co-operation with the Sahawat and the governments-linked scholars, and the parliamentarians “Brotherhood” against the Islamic state. Together with his call to be peaceful with the batiniyyah, to Islamize the Rafidah and not targeting the crusaders from the land of Sham!

He sometimes regards the amirul mu’minin (leader of the faithful) to be among the descendants of the father of the two Hasans, Ali Ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with them), he then regards him among the descendants of his killer, Ibn Muljim!

Yes, because of his partisanship, and his self-righteousness, and his love of power and his craving after prestige; the silly dotard became the most contradictorily foolish! He calls the mujahideen in Sham to co-operate with each other against the head of infidelity America! He then calls his Jawlani branch to be peaceful with the head of Kufr America! He pledges allegiance to the Taliban Dajjal without consulting anyone of his branches, and then claims that the Islamic State did not consult anyone before her renewal of the absent squandered obligation.

He even claims to be calling for a Caliphate on the prophetic methodology, but then reviles some of the rightly guided Khalifs! Since he claimed that the fight for Caliphate without consulting the whole nation in the East and West is one of the ways of the mordacious Kingdoms and the autocratic oppressors, and this is an insult that falls upon the rightly guided khalif; Ali Ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with him)!

Oh Alshabab of Somalia, among the worst things your ‘wise man’ did is that he called for: “The continuation of the blessed revolution that brought Muhammad Morsi [to power] so as to achieve the desired change that has not been achieved until today,”  [The unification of the word around of the word of Tawheed]!

The Fool thought that a Revolution that brought Morsi is a blessed revolution! Then days after, he discovered that the ‘Arab Spring’  was not an Islamic Spring, so he calls for an ‘Islamic  spring’ in a series of lectures in the same format with those of “Messages of Hope and joy to our people in Egypt,”  whereby he repeats in it the same misguided concepts without anything new in all its episodes and without accomplishing any benefit other than the love of fame and articulation of falsehood. The follower will think that the silly dotard will correct the voyage of the Arabic “revolutions” but will be surprised to find that the series from the first episode to the third is majorly about confronting the Islamic state! Was the Islamic state in  Egypt  when Sisi the taghut overpowered Morsi the taghut?, Was the Dawlah in  Libya  when Haftar the taghut overpowered the tawaghit of the General National Congress? Also was it(i.e. The Islamic State) in  Tunisia  when the Renaissance Party tawaghit were kicked out of the taghuti Government? Or is it that Al-Zawahiri, a man of desires and partisanship, is envying the Islamic state on what Allah has given it? And he is probably crying for the muflisin Brotherhood and their tawaghit who lost their sits in the ‘post-revolutions governments’  , The Governments that Al-Zawahiri ordered to be peaceful with?

Al Zawahiri is militarily peaceful with the muflisin Brotherhood but teases them media-wise …However, with the Islamic state, The soldiers of the silly dotard fight it(i.e. The Islamic State) in Sham, Khurasan, Libya and in other countries!

Oh Alshabab of Somalia, Do you accept to stay as a branch for an ‘organization’ that its branches are only concerned about allying with the murtadeen tawaghit and fighting the Mujahideen of the khilafah? Here is the Algerian Branch; it is pleased to support “the National Movement for the Liberation of  Azawad” turning a blind eye to its apostasy. It condemns the muwahideen for applying the law of Allah in Mali. Then it fights the Islamic state in Darna with an alliance composing of ‘jihadi’ parties that were previously part of the Libyan democracy such as the “Islamic Fighting Group” and “Abu Salim Martyrs brigade” and others besides them of the parties that contributed to the Libyan taghut transitional and ‘the dawn’ governments? Whereas the Yemeni branch hands over the ‘liberated’ territory to the apostate army, the government and the party of “Al-eslah” who didn’t repent from apostasy yet and who met in “the Hadrami National Council! The “Syrian” branch allies with the FSA and the nationalistic fronts, agents of the tawaghit. Even the treacherous Jawlani himself and his follower Abu Firas Assuri testified that those are agents of the tawaghit.

Yes, despite the airstrikes of the Crusaders in defense of the Sahawat, The Jowlani Front allies with the Sahawat coalition in the war against the Islamic state! With regards to the Indian branch and the branch of Khurasan, they are but livestocks in the hands of the Taghut of Taliban whom he sacrifices to put pressure on the crusaders and the tawaghit to ensure success for the national reconciliation with the Afghan apostates! But if you (Oh Alshabab) answer with silence, your silence will be your endorsement, no neutrality no gray zone, the muwahideen before the epic battle (Al Malhamah) will not be satisfied with a group of gray zone (like a lone sheep between two herds of sheep, it escapes every now and then, knowing not to which one it belongs), they will not be satisfied with a wavering group  {[belonging] neither to these nor to those}, they will not be satisfied with a hypocritical group that labels muwahideen to be fitnah-mongers but blandishes the murtadeen…

Therefore choose in which frontline of the two camps you shall stand; for in reality, the battle of Dabiq is closer to one of you than his shoelace, and thereafter, you will either be among the soldiers of the “Spirit that proceeded from Allah and His word” [Issa (pbuh)]. Or else you will be among the soldiers of the blind Dajjal.

Also do not forget that your late amir, Abu Zubair said the same thing Amirul mu’minin Abu Omar al-Baghdadi al-Husseini ( may Allah accept him) said and also as said by the Khalifah Ibrahim al-Qurashi and the Mujahid Sheikh Al-Adnani (may Allah preserve them both):

“Verilly, The Islamic State will remain”

The “Khalifah” of Al Qaidah died Before The Announcemet Of The Khilafah

By: Umm Safiyyah Al Muhajirah


In the name of Allah, The firm the strong.

May peace and blessings be upon the leader of the Mujahidin, his family, his noble blessed companions and those who established the khilafah after many decades.

Allah Azza Wajalla said:

{Nay! We cast the truth against the falsehood, so that it breaks its head, and lo! it vanishes; and woe to you for what you describe} [Anbiya’ 18]

Woe to you O Alqaidah for your fraudulence and covering of the truth. Woe to u for your lies and slander. Woe to you for that which your leader tried best to prove without any success; so that he would just remain in power to lead some remnants.

The masters of sitting back and polemicists among them, couldn’t directly oppose the words of Allah who said:

{Indeed, I will make upon the earth a khalifah} [Al Baqarah 30]

So they instead joted misguiding fatawa and turned the people away from the truth.

They did not consider Jowlani (the betrayed by the power of Allah) to be a disobedient rank spliter, but instead they accepted the treacherous spiteful bay’ah to Adh-Dhawahiri which Jowlani himself couldn’t believe until he even forgot to perform sujudu Shukr due to the happiness over what Dhawahiri had offered him in supporting him in disobedience and division. They weren’t ashamed of Allah while they were trying to deceive Him, His Messenger and the believers.

In a desperate attempt to ridicule the uninformed, Dhawahiri peeped out again after he had stabbed his spear into the backs of the Muwahiddin; claiming that he was given bay’ah by the Islamic state in Iraq.

How much did the ummah laugh at that speech which was full of jokes and fraud. He was the same one who announced earlier-on that there is no more Alqaidah in iraq and that the Alqaidah there had merged with other groups into the Islamic state in Iraq. This is evident in his words and by his words shall we judge him.

The current leader of Alqaidah organization said:

“First, I would like to clarify that there isn’t anything today in Iraq named “Al-Qaida”: instead, Qaida Al-Jihad Organisation in Mesopotamia has merged – by the Grace of Allah – with other Jihadi groups in the Islamic State of Iraq (May Allah Protect it), which is a legitimate emirate based on a proper legal methodology and which was founded through Shura and received the pledge of allegiance of most of the Mujahideen and tribes in Iraq” [A Review of events – As-Sahab’s Fourth interview with Shaykh Ayman Adh-Dhawahiri]

He also said:

“I hereby send my greetings and the greetings of my brothers to our mujahideen brothers of the Islamic state in Iraq. I congratulate them for establishing the Islamic state. I also urge the entire islamic nation to support this young emerging state, for it is the gateway to the liberation of palestine and the revival of islamic state khilafah” [In “Advice of One Concerned” issued by As-Sahab on July 6 2007]

Yes Dhawahiri used to see the Islamic state (may Allah support it) as the gateway to the liberation of baytul maqdis and the revival of the Islamic khilafah.

Exalted is the one who changes situations. When the khilafah came back and became a reality, their words changed and they started to disagree. They didn’t get ashamed but instead continued upon their misguidance, misguiding others from the right path. To them, the Islamic state became a khariji state that must be fought and annihilated. Then iblis gave them a more filthy trick, they said: ”how can there be two Khalifs at once?! When we already have a khalif called Mulla Umar?”

Yes, that’s how Alqaidah organization and its ‘scholars’ who recanted(their stances) and altered said.

They were like the one whom;

When satan saw the appearance of his face*****He(satan) got shy of his shamelessness And said*****This one is more doomed than me [Poetry]

It is true that Shaykh Usama gave bay’ah to Mullah Umar and it was indeed necessary because at that time there was no Khalifah in the whole world. The land was under the control of the tawaghit and all the parties who fought the soviet union in Afghanistan like that of Burhanuddin Rabbani, Abd Rabbirrasul Sayyaf and Ahmad Shah Mas’ud and the likes weren’t upon clean banners on a safe methodology. Immediately after the fall of the Soviet Union, they started fighting each other for power. Then came Taliban who once again liberated the already liberated land and announced an Islamic emirate that rules by the shariah of Allah. Obviously such emirates formed due to necessity would automatically fall once the khilafah is restored.

Then there is a big difference between a Khilafah that is working to rule the whole world by what Allah has revealed and a localized emirate that lies in the name of its dead amir for many years; whose borders don’t go beyond the lines drawn by the crusaders, the mushrikin, the pagans and the murtaddin. The Taliban kept on emphasizing this matter through its official website by official statements from its false leadership under the name of Mullah Umar.

For instance, they said:

“The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan seeks to establish mutual relations with all the neighboring countries in an atmosphere of mutual respect and wants to open a new door to an extensively mutual cooperation in economic development and good neighbourhood. We consider the whole region as a common home against colonialism. We want to play our possitive role in stability of the region. We assure all countries that the same way the Islamic emirate does not allow others to meddle in its affairs, Likewise It does not seek to meddle in the affairs of others” [A Statement on the Occasion of the Blessed Eid al-Fitr in the Year 1430 AH]

How will the ummah take as a Khalif someone whose organization is such, releasing nationalistic statements in his name while he is not aware? It even appears that they were lying about him since the fall of his emirate.

Then also, how would Dhawahiri accept this, moreso after he (before losing the wisdom) is the same one that used to say:

“The third difference between an Islamic state and a nationalistic state is that; an Islamic State considers itself responsible of all the muslim land as the fuqaha stated that ‘The muslim land is like a single house’ but a nationalistic state limits itself to the borders of its country” [Unifying the word around the word of Tawheed]

He also said:

“The sixth goal: Working to establish the Khilafah that doesn’t recognize the nationalistic state or citizenship association or the borders that were imposed by the occupiers, but rather establishes the state of the righteous Khilafah upon the prophetic methodology, that believes in the unity of the lands of the Muslims and the brotherhood association that equals between them, and removes the borders that were imposed on them by their enemies, and to seek to spread justice, Shura (Consultation), supporting of the weak, and liberation of all the Muslim lands” [A Paper for Supporting Islam]

By Allah, that is exactly what was done by Alkarrar Alhusainy Alqurashi (May Allah protect him) and his noble soldiers. This cannot be denied except by one who follows his whims or the one who is blind.

If they hear a doubtful thing, they happily fly with it ***But if they hear something true, they conseal it *****Deaf they are to any good news about me****But announce anything bad  [Poetry]

The folks gave bay’ah to Mullah Umar, then they renewed it the same day the Islamic state (May Allah protect it) revived the Khilafah. They did this simply because of envy. They even went further than that, by playing around with the texts, they said : {whenever two amirs are both given bay’ah, kill the latter one of the two} they meant by the killing of Amirul muminin Alkhalifah Alqurashy (Abubakar) may Allah protect him and support him with His victory.

They plotted a huge plot, but the best of plotters was ever watchful (over them). The day came that crashed the back of the Alqaidah organization; that they were all along giving allegiance to non but a dead person!

Their khalifah Mullah had been dead for long. The Taliban in the name of its political wing officially acknowledged his death to have been two years before. Meaning that he died before the announcement of the khilafah. Would the donkeys of ilm write for us the principles regarding this new matter of giving allegiance to the dead. What is its ruling, its characteristics and its conditions?!

The mob claimed that we have pledged allegiance to an “unknown” but soon he appeared publicly to the ummah, feeding the barking dogs with rocks that made them unconscious. On the other hand, they gave bay’ah to a dead person that will never be back.

Then their new “khalifah” today, is “Akhttar” (which means the most dangerous when the T in his name in stressed). The most dangerous duties of this Akhtar was to send a delegation to the Majusi Iran and he acknowledged it as an Islamic state. He also said that the two Taghut Hamd and Tamim are his counterparts, whereby he falsely ascribed those dangerous statements to Mullah Umar.

Therefore, don’t be disappointed by the late recording of Dhawahiri through the indian branch of As-Sahab. He came out after long slumber to pledge allegiance to Akhtar The most dangerous. The smell of partisanship, nationalism, changing, and regression inflicted flu to our noses.

Sorry, oh our ummah, how much were we and our predecessors patient dreaming about a day that you will be cleaned from the humiliation, a day that you will retrieve your glory and become one body of which if an organ in Burma aches, their brothers in Baghdad feel it and the remaining body joins it in sleeplessness and fever.

They lied to you O Nation of billion and a half. They lied the day they were singing about you and about your injuries. They claimed that they love the broken Laila but Laila doesn’t accept love except from the one who dived into the battles, who submitted the most expensive dowry.

They lied the day we both boarded together the boat of Jihad. The boat of safety and prosperity. We agreed upon that we shall remain in it until the nearest shore. How hard was that journey. Many were killed, many were lost. Many were broken. Many remained firm and many retreated. When the shore appeared, we said that we shall keep on remaining firm, but they started fumbling and their cowardice came out.

But the soldiers of the truth, didn’t lie to you O ummah when they said that it is baqiyyah. Different are the ones who write with the ink of blood and those that write with the ink of sitting back, polemics, and desires.

Glad tiddings to you our precious nation, the promise of Allah and his messenger (saw) has been attained and there is no going back by the power of Allah (s.w.), there would be no retreat from today. No more humility. The leadership is in the hands of those that {And of them is he who yet awaits, and they have not changed in the least} [Ahzab 23]

To those who are still in the remains of Alqaida and to the confused we say:

Ask and don’t forget(to ask) if you are bewildered*****The question is the guidance(the solution to the your problem) if you are confused [Poetry]

Oh Allah we want jannah for them and they want hellfire for us. Oh Allah bring to guidance the truthful among them. Oh Allah bring to guidance the truthful among them. And don’t leave upon the earth an inhabitant among the obstinate.

Are the Islamic State Khāwārij?

By Abu Ismael


In the name of Allah, all praise be to Allah, and may prayers and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family, his companions, and those who followed him. This is a concise reply to the common allegations brought up by some of the Muslims who claim that the Islamic State are khāwārij. In Sha Allah this will be of benefit to many Muslims & I ask Allah to guide them to the truth through this article.

May Allah make this article sincerely for Him alone. Any mistakes herein are from myself or Shaytān & anything correct is from Allah ‘Azza Wa Jal.

To come to the correct answer, we first have to define the term ‘khawarij’. The reason we start with this is because, many Muslims around the world throw this word around without knowing its true meaning. The singular of the word khāwārij  is khārijī & the main traits of the khāwārij are as follows:

1. Takfīr on major sins

Al-Shahrastānī may Allah have mercy on him ( A Shāfi’ī scholar of Ahlus Sunnah from Shahrastān, in current day Iran d.548 Hijri) said:
“And they ( i.e. the khawarij) make takfīr on major sins, meaning; whoever falls into a major sin such as Zina (fornication), drinking alcohol, or stealing is made takfīr on (by them) & has left the fold of Islam & is in hellfire for eternity with the rest of the kuffar” [Al-Milal Wal Nahl p106:]

He, may Allah forgive him, also said: “They say that you should rebel against a ruler if he contradicts the sunnah (even though he has not commited kufr) & they see this as a wājib (obligation)”

Ibn Hazm said: “And whoever agrees with the khāwārij in denying the governmental ruling, making takfīr on those who commit major sins, rebelling against an unjust(but Muslim) ruler, that ashāb al-kabā’ir (those who commit major sins) are in hellfire for eternity and that the Imam (Khalifah) can be other than a Quraishī, then this person is a khārijī ” [Al-Fasl 113/2]

2. Takfīr on anyone who disagrees with them.

Imam Shafe‘e said that these bid`a groups make takfir on you if you dont agree with them, whereas Ahlus Sunnah accept that you can disagree with them, but do not make takfir on you for that. However, this would depend on what you are  disagreeing on though, if the issue is one that takes a person out of Islam, then they (Ahlus Sunnah) would make takfir on you, such as someone claiming that the prophet Muhammad (SAW) is not the last of the prophets.

3. Rebelling against a Muslim ruler

It is haraam to revolt against a Muslim ruler however much he oppresses the Muslims. But the Khawarij do rebel against the Muslim rulers and this is their hallmark. They did this with Ali(ra).

Ubadah bin al-Samet(ra) said:
“…we pledged allegiance to him (Rasulullah) which obligated us not to contest the authority with its people unless we see obvious kufr for which we have evidence from Allah.” [Agreed upon].

Also in the authenticated book of Ahmad and the Sunnah of Ibn Abi Asim, (they said do not compete against the rulers) “so long as they do not order you to (commit) a clear transgression.”

It should however be known that if the Muslim ruler becomes an apostate as is the case with the current Arab rulers, it becomes a must on the Muslims to revolt and depose him by force.

Al Qadi Ayyadh, may Allah have mercy on him, said:
“If he(i.e. the ruler) came to commit kufr, or a change to the Shari’a he loses the authority of the state and obedience to him is nullified. The Muslims must rise up against him and remove him and install a just leader”

Imam al-Nawawi in his explanation of sahih Muslim said that Qadi Ayyadh said:

“The ulema are in agreement that the leadership cannot be entrusted to a kaffir and if he came to commit kufr he should be dismissed.”

Secondary traits (which don’t necessarily have to be present for one to be a khārijī) include:

i.) rejecting/denying the prophet’s fountain, the punishment of the grave, the intercession, seeing Allah Azza Wa Jal, the Sirāt
ii.) shaving the head bald
iii.) rejecting ahadeeth which “contradict” the apparent meaning of the Qur’an (not the actual meaning said by the mufasirīn) hence denying the Hadd punishment of Al-Rajm (stoning).
The Islamic State has none of the above characteristics.


[The Islamic State stone an adulterer in Wilaayat Nainawa, unlike the khāwārij who deny the Hadd punishment of stoning.]

The scholars do not call anyone a Khariji except that he fits in all the 3 characteristics. However, the main traits are number 1 and 2, as there were some classical scholars who believed that you can rebel against an unjust ruler with conditions of course. The stronger opinion is that you don’t revolt against him even if he is a fornicator or an alcoholic, as long as he is still a Muslim.

Now In Shā’ Allah we will go into some of the arguments raised about the Islamic State by some muslims to ‘justify’ that they are khawarij:

First argument: The Islamic State make takfīr on all the Muslims in Iraq & Sham and make their blood halal.

“Glory be to You (Our Lord) This is a great slander” ,An-Noor 16}.

We ask those who say this to substantiate their claim as Allah says;

“Bring your proof if you are truthful” {Al Baqarah 111}

We know that if an accusation is wrongly thrown at a person or a group, the task of the group is to declare barā’a (innocence) from this accusation openly which Alhamdulillah the Islamic State did very well.

The official spokesman of the Islamic State, Al-Shaykh Al-Mujahid Abu Muhammad Al-Adnānī Al- Shāmī(HA), said:

“We would like to clarify here a misconception that has always been raised in this campaign, the claim that; ‘the asl (general ruling) of people is kufr’,this is from the bid’ah of the khāwārij of our time & the Islamic State is innocent from this saying. And in its aqeedah and methodology and what it believes in before Allah is that the Ahlu sunnah in Iraq and Al-Sham in general are Muslims, we do not make takfīr on anyone of them unless we confirm his apostasy with Shar’ī evidence of peremptory indication and peremptory proof. And whomever we find from the soldiers of the Islamic State saying this bid’ah, we educate him and explain to him, if he doesn’t refrain, we berate him and if he still doesn’t refrain, we expell him from our ranks & declare disavowal towards him and we have done this several times with the muhājirīn & the Ansār.” [Click here to listen]

This is a blatant calumny & this is exactly what their likes accused Shaykh Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab of, who said:

“As for the saying that we make takfīr on the general public, this is from the slandering of the enemies who use this statement to delude people from this religion & we say Exalted are You, [O Allah]; this is a great slander” [Al-Rasā’il Al-Shakhsīyah 15/101]

And Al-Allāmah Abdul Latīf ibn Abdur Rahmān said:

“They said about Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhāb that he is from the khāwārij, and they also accused him of making permissible the blood & wealth (of Muslims)” [Al-Rasā’il Al-Najdīyyah 77/3]

Second argument: The Islamic State make takfīr on major sins & see that you should rebel against an oppressive(Muslim) ruler

This is also a lie without any evidence and the true understanding of the Islamic State regarding this matter is the same as Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamā’ah which is: That it is impermissible to rebel against an unjust oppressive ruler as long as his oppression does not reach clear kufr. And the evidence is hadith of ‘Ubadah ibn as-Sāmit in Bukhari & Muslim which says:

“… And not to dispute about rule with those in power, except in case of evident infidelity regarding which there is a proof from Allah.”

This pledge of allegiance is given by many Islamic State leaders, soldiers, civilians & even tribes.

The Islamic State follow the opinion of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamā’ah which is in the saying of Al-Hāfidh Ibn Hajar who said: “If the ruler falls into clear kufr, then it is not permissible to obey in his orders, rather it is wājib (obligatory) to wage Jihād upon him for those who are able”

The rulers of Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Egypt & other countries with Islamic State presence have all fallen into the kufr of ruling by other than Allah’s law, allying with kuffār & others. For example, Bashar Assad has fallen into the kufr of ruling by other than Allah’s law & is a Nusayri which, by ijmā’ (scholarly consensus), are kuffār & the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah further say that the Nusayri’s have fallen into all 10 nullifiers of Islam. [Listen to what our scholars say about the kufr of ruling by other than Allah’s law here: Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen: , Shaykh Sulaymān Al-‘Alwān: ]

Third argument: The Islamic State kill Muslims & abandon  the idol worshippers

This claim emanates from this hadeeth: Abu Sa’īd Al-Khudri narrated that the prophet Muhammad may peace and blessings be upon him described the khāwārij as: “They(khawarij) will kill the people of Islam (Ahlul Islam) and leave the worshippers of Idols (Ahlul Awthan) alone” [Bukhari & Muslim]

a) The Islamic State kill the people of Islam (Ahlul Islam)

The Islamic State control provinces and wide areas in Iraq & Sham bigger than Britain which has approximately 10 million Muslims living under it. They have not killed them nor have they threatened to do so, rather they give them their due rights & provide them security.

Al-Adnānī, the official spokesman, said:

“The Islamic State doesn’t make permissible the blood of a muslim, rather we do not target nor kill anyone except the combatant kuffār, and every one of you knows this very well, even though we are accused of this in the western media. If we wanted to target civilians and innocents, then the roads (we are in control of) are full of them and the markets are crowded (with them) but we are the most careful in terms of protecting the Muslim blood. If you support us & help us in our fight against the crusaders with your tongue & limbs we will support you & protect you, however if you stand in the camp of our enemies against us then what are you waiting for from us (other than fighting you)?

Another lie that is thrown at us by the supporters of the tawāghīt, is that the Islamic State fight any kāffir or mushrik rather anyone who goes against it, and they have lied! The fight of the mujāhidīn is a fight of guidance, Allah said after the ayah of the sword:

“And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the words of Allah . Then deliver him to his place of safety.” {At-Tawbah 6}

For the Mushrikeen who do not fight against the Muslims, Islam has given them protection and security among the Muslims and Allah has ordered us to grant them protection so that they may hear the words of Allah. Islam wants any heart to be guided because it is the manhaj(methodology) of Mercy & guidance and not the manhaj of enemity & eradication, however we wage jihad with the sword to get rid of oppresive forces which stop the people from hearing the words of Allah and hence stop them from being guided and cause them to ultimately worship other than Allah. So whoever understands this well, would know that the Islamic state fights the combatant kāfir who is opressive and tries to stop the spread of this guidance” [Listen]

Shaykh Al-Adnānī also said:

“Being brought forth and our heads struck one by one, is more beloved to us than the intentional killing of one Muslim. For by Allah, it was for them that we went forth & for the protection of their blood, money & possessions that we are here & we will continue to love them even if they dislike us & we will continue to give them victory even if they want our loss, we want them to live, even if they want us to die” [click here to get this]



[Christians living under the Islamic State tell the world who the true Islamic State are.]

b) The Islamic State leave the idol worshippers alone

The argument they use for this is that the Islamic State left Deir Ezzor(now wilayatul Khayr) where the Nusayri mushrikīn were stationed & went to Halab(Aleppo) to fight the “mujāhidīn” such as the Free Syrian Army, Liwa Tawhid, Syrian Revolutionists Front and other other sahawat. This can be explained very simply, the Islamic State have always put the Nusayris & Rafidhīs as a priority on their list, that is why they were in Dier Ezzor frontline fighting Bashar before they were backstabbed by these apostates on 3rd January 2014. Even if we agree with those that claim FSA and these other apostate groups are Mujahideen, is it not permissible to defend yourself from a transgressing Muslim? By Allah anyone who knows the happenings in sham knows that The Islamic state never started fighting any group rather it is these groups that started fighting them. On January 3rd, these sahawat attacked the lightly guarded centers of the Islamic state in Allepo and killed so many muhajireen just because they were muhajireen and raped some of the muhajireen sisters that were there. So The Islamic State had to quit their offensive in the frontline against Bashar and come back to Allepo and defend their people against these Murtadeen backstabbers. Thereafter, the Islamic State went back to fight in Deir Ezzor against Bashar’s soldiers & were victorious, and are now in control of most of the city. As for the claim that the Islamic State do not fight Nusayris & Rafidhīs, the evidences to refute this claim are plenty. How did the Islamic State capture Division 17, Minnegh airbase, Brigade 93 or Tabqah airbase? These were all military points under the control of Bashār Assad for many years & the Islamic State captured them all after killing & capturing hundreds of Nusayri’s. add to this the recent  victories in Hims(HOMS) in capturing Sukhna and Tadmur from Bashar.


[Islamic State soldiers target areas where the Nusayri regime are positioned, Al-Khayr province]


[Islamic State Mujahid speaking in a video during the liberation of 93rd brigade millitary base in Raqqa]

“Listen up, O you who claim that the Islamic State doesn’t fight Bashar and doesn’t fight the shi’ah. I swear by Allah, we’re going to dispute with you in front of Allah. And the blood of our brothers here will be a witness. I swear by Allah, we’re going to dispute with you tomorrow on the Day of Judgment.”
Fourth argument: The Islamic State fight other Muslim factions in Sham

The Islamic State have not started a fight against any of the so called ‘Islamic’ factions in Sham, rather it is these same factions who declared war on the Islamic State in their statements & speeches. Many of these so called Muslim factions have received US backing to fight the Islamic State such FSA & Hazm movement & others have received backing by Arab tawāghīt such as Ahrar Sham ,evidence can be seen here said by a former soldier & the Islamic Front {well known for their alliance with FSA against the Islamic State in Syria & formed a coalition to fight the Islamic State named Burkān Al-Furāt which included YPG & IF & also the infamous coalition which was formed to fight the Islamic State in Deir Ezzor(Al Khayr) known as the Mishmish coalition which was backed by foreign tawāghīt & included other kuffār factions.

Also the accusation that is usually brought up in this context is that The Islamic state killed Abu Khalid As-Suri who was a veteran of the Afghani jihad and a close ally of the great jihadi leaders. Even if we were to agree for the sake of argument that The Islamic state indeed killed Abu Khalid As-Suri, will that qualify them to be khawarij? since when did killing one Muslim make a whole state Khawarij? Furthermore, the Islamic state shura council released a statement distancing themselves from his killing. So The Islamic state officially clarified having no hand in his killing.

Other groups such as Jabhat Al-Nusra also initiated the fight against the Islamic State last year in Deir Ezzor when Al-Joulānī gave the Islamic State a 5 day ultimatum to leave the province or he would expel them not only from sham, but also from Iraq. Actually Jabhat An-Nusrah bombed the Islamic state centers in Dier Ezor when The Islamic State went back to Allepo to defend themselves against the apostates that were killing the Muhajireen. So after this, would you expect the Islamic State to give them roses and candy in return?

The bottom line is that the Islamic state never started this war, and that they fought these groups because they were defending their lives, properties and honor.


[From left: Abu Jāber (Emīr/leader of Ahrar Sham), Zahran Allūsh (Military chief/Emir of the Islamic Front) & Abu Esa (another one of the IF leaders who was formally Suqūr Al-Shām brigade leader) in Turkey 3 days before the US claims that it is training Syrian rebels in Turkey.]

Something important to mention is that the one who will call these factions Muslims is either a jāhil (unaware) of the wāqi’ (current situation) in Syria or is a jāhil of the nullifiers of Islam.

Also another important point is, if fighting happens between two Muslim factions it does not necessarily make one of them khawarij. During the time of ‘Alī (ra), he & Muāwiyyah (ra) fought each other upon a personal ijtihād (personal judgement according to the Quran & Sunnah) from each of them, now if we are to go by this crooked principle of branding one of the two Muslim groups who fight each other Khawarij, which group would be the khawarij? Ali’s group or Mu’awwiyah’s?
Allah says in the Qur’an: “And if two factions among the believers should fight, then make settlement between the two. But if one of them oppresses the other, then fight against the one that oppresses until it returns to the ordinance of Allah . And if it returns, then make settlement between them in justice and act justly. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly.” {Hujrat 9}

Notice in this ayah Allah ‘Azza Wa Jal calls the two factions that fight each other both believers and none of them are khāwārij.

Shaykh Al-‘Adnānī said:

“The Islamic State did not start this fight against you (O crusaders & sahāwāt) like your media portrays to you”

Fifth argument: The Islamic State admit that they have takfīrī’s in their army

I have shown above that Shaykh Al-Adnānī said here, that they show any khāwārij takfīrī in their ranks the true Aqeedah of Ahlus Sunnah & if they stay upon their deviance, they warn them & then remove them from their ranks & make barā’a on them  if they insist on this bid’ah & this happened with many ghūlat before. It’s important, however, to note that having khawarij in your ranks doesn’t make the whole army or the group to be khawarij. Don’t you know of the famous hadith concerning the one who started the khawarij sect –  dhul Khuwaysarah? Don’t you know that he was in the ranks of The Messenger of Allah’s army? Don’t you know that Ali(ra) had the khawarij in his ranks? Does this make their groups Khawarij? Subhanalah! Nay They were not khawarij rather they had some khawarij in their midst and it doesn’t make them to be khawarij. Similarly, The Islamic state admitting to have khawarij in their ranks, does not mean that each and every one of their soldiers is a khārijī.

Sixth argument: Our scholars say that the Islamic State are khāwārij

This accusation was thrown at greater scholars than those of the Islamic state like Ibn al-Qayyim, Ibn Taymiyyah & Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhāb (may Allah have mercy on them all) so it’s an old game.

Ibn al-Qayyim said in his long poem titled ‘Al-Kāfiyyah Al-Shāfiyyah’ in a section titled ‘Their lies & their accusing of Ahl al-Haq (the people of the truth) as khāwārij:

And from the strange things is that they say to those *** who take the Qur’an and Sunnah as a religion: “You are similar to the khāwārij who *** judged by the apparent of the text (Quran & Sunnah) and didn’t look into their (actual) meanings

A sign of the murji’ah & Jahmīyyah is that they throw accusations to Ahlus Sunnah and call them khāwārij

Shaykh Abdur Rahmān ibn Hassan ibn Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhāb said in his reply to the Jahmī ‘Uthmān ibn Mansūr Al-Najdī, who slandered the da’wah of Shaykh Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhāb in a message calling him a wahhābī & a khārijī:

“The apparent is that you wrote about the khāwārij & used Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah’s statements in doing so, and the reality is that the problem of the ummah is greater than that: the problem includes worshipping idols & rejecting tawhīd” (Al-Durar Al-Sanīyyah 44/12)

Subhān Allāh! Look at the similarities between today & yesterday!

They accuse the Islamic State of being khāwārij in their bātil fatawā & messages & the reality of the problem is greater than this, the problem includes worshipping of idols, beautifying its worship, rejecting tawhīd, allying with kuffār, delaying in ruling by Allah’s law & ruling by other than His law!

Seventh argument: Our scholars are knowledgeable and trustworthy!

Shaykh Ibn ‘Ābidīn was a very knowledgeable scholar who gave trustworthy fatāwā to the public & still slandered Shaykh Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhāb the same way many scholars today slander the Islamic state.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Ābidīn Al-Hanafī said: “They (Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhāb & his followers) say that they are Muslims & that anyone who goes against their aqīdah is a mushrik & therefore they made permissible the killing of Ahlus Sunnah & the killing of their scholars”

Again, very similar to what they accuse the Islamic state of.

Eighth argument: We get trustworthy news from trustworthy sources in Syria that bear witness that the Islamic State are khāwārij

Very simple, they are the Islamic State’s enemies & the witness of a foe is not accepted in Sharī’ah, what you should instead do is listen from the Islamic State yourself & then judge them based on their statements & actions which they have claimed responsibility for.

“Why then, did not the believers, men and women, when you heard it (the slander), think good of their own people and say: ‘This (charge) is an obvious lie?’ ” {An-Noor 12}

Lastly, I bring the duā’ of Shaykh Abu Muhammad Al-Adnānī in his speech “This was never our manhaj and never will it be” , which In Shā’ Allah was accepted by Allah after seeing the effects it had on the current situation in Shām:

“O Allah if this State is a State of the Khawārij then break its back, kill its leaders, forgo its banner and guide its soldiers to the truth. O Allah if this an Islamic State, ruling by Your Book and the Sunnah of Your Prophet, fighting Your enemies, then keep it firm, honour it and grant it victory, and establish it upon the earth, and make it as the Khilāfah upon the Way of Prophethood. So say Āmīn O Muslims. O Allah, deal with all of those who split the ranks of the Mujāhidīn, and who divided the word of the Muslims, pleased the disbelievers, enraged the believers and delayed the Jihad by many years. O Allah expose their secrets and hidden intentions, and send upon them Your Anger and Your Curse and show us in them the Miracles of Your Power and Might. Say Āmīn O Muslims”


I conclude this article by saying that many of the arguments that people come with are weightless statements with no solid evidence, therefore after showing these clear evidences & the true methodology of the Islamic State said by its spokesman, there is no room for personal desires.

{It is only those who believe not in Ayat (proofs,evidences,verses,etc.) of Allah, who fabricate falsehood, and it is they who are liars.” {Sūrat Al-Nahl ayah 105}

Does the Islamic State take slaves from the Sahawat Murtadeen (sahawat apostates in Iraq and Shaam)?

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

Some rumours and lies have been spread by the enemies of the Islamic State Khilafah that it takes slaves, especially female slaves, from amongst the relatives of the Sahawat Murtadeen (pro-West apostates) of Iraq and Syria. This is a lie and has no basis in reality. The Islamic State Khilafah does not take slaves from amongst the relatives of the Murtadeen, and neither does it make Sabāyah (concubines) of their women. Here is a clarification of the Islamic States policy regarding the relatives of the Sahawat Murtadeen from Amir Ul-Mumineens latest speech, “March Forth Whether Light or Heavy“:

O Ahlus-Sunnah in Iraq, and specifically our people in al-Anbār, be certain that our hearts are broken on account of your leaving of your homes and your lands, and your seeking of shelter in the territory of the Rāfidah and the Kurdish atheists, and your being forced to wander the lands. And even if some of your relatives are apostates waging war against the religion of Allah and allied with the Rāfidah and the Crusaders, then we don’t hold you accountable for their crimes. So return to your lands, and remain in your homes, and seek shelter – after first seeking shelter with Allah – with your people in the Islamic State, for you will find therein, by Allah’s permission, a warm embrace and a safe refuge. For you are our people. We defend you, your honor, and your wealth. We want you to be mighty and noble, we want you to be safe and secure, and we want your salvation from Hellfire.

Full statement to be found here:

We ask Allah SWT to make the truth evident to the liars or to curse them if they remain unheedful.



The chatter in the social media and in the streets about the legitimacy of the Khilafah that was declared by ISIS on June 2014 has grown. Some of those who dont know much about the shari’ah knowledge have fallen prey to the doubts raised by the so called “jihadi scholars’ ” in disapproving the Khilafah. Ansar Al Khilafah Media will be releasing a series of treatises insha’Allah that will try to explain the legitimacy of the Khilafah and refute the doubts raised by these people from a shar’i point of view perhaps some sincere Muslims might see the truth and embrace it. This is the reason we have chosen to clarify these issues and named our series after verse 164 in Suratul ‘Araf;

وَإِذْ قَالَتْ أُمَّةٌ مِّنْهُمْ لِمَ تَعِظُونَ قَوْمًا اللَّهُ مُهْلِكُهُمْ أَوْ مُعَذِّبُهُمْ عَذَابًا شَدِيدًا قَالُوا مَعْذِرَةً إِلَىٰ رَبِّكُمْ وَلَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَّقُونَ

And when a community among them said, “Why do you advise [or warn] a people whom Allah is [about] to destroy or to punish with a severe punishment?” they [the advisors] said, “To be absolved before your Lord and perhaps they may fear Him.”

please share this as much as you can and inshallah soon we shall upload its pdf.Keep on checking on this page.

The First of the treatises from the series;

“To be free from blame before your Lord, and perhaps they may fear Him” [Al A‘raf: 164]


Praise be to Allah, the Mighty and Strong. And may peace and blessings be upon the one sent with the sword as a mercy to all creation. As for what follows:

It is necessary to understand that the ummah should have a Khalifah that unites their word and defends them from the enemy. If the ummah has no leader, the shariah of Allah will cease to exist and injustice and promiscuity will prevail.

Imam Ghazali said “The intelligent person won’t dispute the fact that the creation would be destroyed from their differences in opinions, wishes and ranks were they to be left to act on their personal opinions with no leadership to be obeyed that brings together their different opinions. And this is a disease that has no cure except by a powerful obeyed leader that brings them together under one opinion. So it has become clear that leadership is necessary for the proper organization of the worldly affairs. And the organization of the worldly affairs is necessary for the organization of the deen and the organization of the deen is necessary for achieving triumph in the hereafter. And that is the exact essence of the Prophets. So the obligation of appointing an Imam (leader) has been from the necessities of the shari’ah that can’t be abandoned in any way” [Al Iqtisaad fii Al-‘Itiqaad page 128]

How true are the these lines of poetry by Ibn Mubarak:

Allah by the Sultan(leader) protects adversities from the deen,
and by him our worldly life flourishes,
Had there been no leaders,
the roads wouldn’t have been safe for us
and the weak would have become prey for the strong

The authentic hadeeths of The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) clearly show the obligation of appointing and giving bay‘ah to a leader:

It was related by ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (May Allah be pleased with them both) that The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Whoever dies without being bound by the oath of allegiance (bayah), dies the death of the time of ignorance(jahiliyah)” [Sahih Muslim] [NOTE: The words of Rausullah (ﷺ) ; “the death of the time of ignorance(jahiliyah)” refer only to the baya’ah to the general Imam i.e. the khalifah not the minor/specific bay’ahs like the bay’ah given to the leader of a fighting group or a jama’ah of a specific place. Also refraining or postponing giving bay’ah to the Khalifah isn’t allowed. The minor bay’ah won’t suffice for the one who claims that he cannot give bay’ah to the Khalifah because he is already in a bay’ah to a jama’ah or a fighting group as this bay’ah(minor bay’ah) cannot substitute the bay’ah to the Khalifah.]

Also the famous hadeeth whereby Abu Sa’eed Al Khudhri(May Allah be pleased with him) narrates from the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) that he said; “When three persons set out on a journey, they should appoint one of them as their leader.” [Abu Dawud]

And the hadeeth of ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar(May Allah be pleased with them both) that The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said; “It is not permissible for three persons to be in a land of wilderness without appointing one of them as their leader” [Ahmad and At-Tabarani in Al-Mu’jam Al-Kabir]

These hadeeths show that, it is even more obligatory for a bigger jama’ah(of more than three people) to have a leader.

Sheykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyah (rh) said “And if Allah has made an obligation upon the least of groups (i.e. a group of 3 people as it came in the hadeeth) to appoint one of them as a leader, then, this is an indication that it is compulsory on any group that is more than that” [Al Hisbah fil Al Islam page 9]

Furthermore, several prominent ‘ulamaa of the ummah have narrated ijama’(consensus) on the obligation of appointing an Imam.

Imam An Nawawi (rh )said “The ‘ulamaa have unanimously agreed that it is compulsory upon the Muslims to appoint a Khalifah” [Commentary of Imam An-Nawawi on Sahih Muslim 120/205]

Sheykh Muhammad ibn Umar ibn Mubarak Al Humeyri (Bahraq) said: “Know that the belief of Ahlu Sunnah is that the appointment of an Imam is an obligation upon the ummah due to the unanimous agreement (ijma’) of the sahaba (RA) after the passing of Rasulullah (ﷺ) whereby they agreed upon avoidance of the presence of a khalifah-less period. Abubakar(RA) said in his khutbah in Saqifat Bani Sa‘adah among the muhajireen and Ansar “Verily Muhammad has died and it is inevitable for this deen to have an Imam that stands for it.” So everyone immediately accepted his words and none of them said that he is not in need of that, rather they gathered in consensus upon his leadership” [Hadaiqul Anwar page 397]

So we have known from the hadeeths and the ijama’ of the ummah, that it is obligatory upon the Muslims in all places and all times to appoint a khalifah. And whoever claims that the appointment of an Imam is not wajib(an obligation) in our time, has indeed forged a lie against Allah because he has claimed that the shariah has approved of disunity.

Therefore, If a certain group declares Khilafah after fulfilling all the conditions, then it is compulsory on all muslims to join them in that khilafah.


We have seen that it is obligatory to appoint an Imam. We should also know that it is not allowed to postpone this appointment due its importance and the dangers that can arise in its postponement. The sahaba understood this fact, and that is why they rushed to the appointment of an Imam, something that made them delay the burial of the prophet (ﷺ).

Imam An-Nawawi said “They(i.e. The sahabah) only delayed the burial of the Rasul (ﷺ) from Monday day to Tuesday night because they were occupied with the issue of the bayah so that they may have an Imam whose opinion and command they would follow should they dispute on his burial rites(i.e. shrouding, washing and burrying) so as to avoid arguments and disagreements. And this was the most important thing and Allah knows best.” [Commentary of Imam An-Nawawi on Sahih Muslim 7/36]

ImamAl Ghazali said “It is seen from the first generation that, the sahabah rushed to appoint an Imam and pledge bayah after the death of the Prophet (ﷺ), and they believed that it is an obligation binding upon them and a right that should be fulfilled immediately, and they avoided its postponement which made them delay preparing the prophet (ﷺ) for burial since they were busy with the appointment of an Imam; all these because they knew that, should there be a moment in which they have no leader that unites them under one opinion and they face a problem, and they differ in the mode of solving it; the system would be messed up, the unity would rive and the laws (ahkaam) would terminate. It’s because of this that they prioritized rushing towards appointing a leader and they did not occupy themselves during this time with anything else other than that” [Fadhaih Al-Batiniyah page 171]

If Rasulullah (ﷺ) who was the best of the creation, and the one most worthy of fulfilling his rights, the sahaba saw it fit to procrastinate his burial so as not to delay the appointment of the khalifah, would it then be logical for one to claim that it is permissible to postpone the obligation of appointing a khalifah or that choosing a Khalifah isn’t wajib and that it is a mere sunnah?! Infact the action of the sahabah clearly shows that it is wajib to rush towards appointing a khalifah and that this obligation should be prioritized over all other religious and worldly affairs.

Thus, the Islamic State in Iraq and Shaam(ISIS) could not delay the establishment of The Khilafah after they attained all the prerequisites. They went forth and declared the Khilafah hence lifting off the burden of sin from all the Muslims in the world. The statement of the declaration of the Khilafah included the following words:

“Therefore, the shūrā (consultation) council of the Islamic State studied this matter after the Islamic State – by Allah’s grace – gained the essentials necessary for khilāfah, which the Muslims are sinful for if they do not try to establish. In light of the fact that the Islamic State has no shar’ī (legal) constraint or excuse that can justify delaying or neglecting the establishment of the khilāfah such that it would not be sinful, the Islamic State – represented by ahlul-halli-wal-‘aqd (its people of authority), consisting of its senior figures, leaders, and the shūrā council – resolved to announce the establishment of the Islamic khilāfah, the appointment of a khalīfah for the Muslims, and the pledge of allegiance to the shaykh (sheikh), the mujāhid, the scholar who practices what he preaches, the worshipper, the leader, the warrior, the reviver, descendent from the family of the Prophet, the slave of Allah, Ibrāhīm Ibn ‘Awwād Ibn Ibrāhīm Ibn ‘Alī Ibn Muhammad al-Badrī al-Hāshimī al-Husaynī al-Qurashī by lineage, as-Sāmurrā’ī by birth and upbringing, al-Baghdādī by residence and scholarship. And he has accepted the bay’ah (pledge of allegiance). Thus, he is the imam and khalīfah for the Muslims everywhere.” [The official spokesman of The Islamic State – Sheykh Abu Muhammad Al ‘Adnani during the declaration of the Khilafah, on 29th June 2014 “This is the promise of Allah”]

The khalifah may Allah protect him further emphasized upon this in his first video khutbah after the declaration of the khilafah:

“Indeed your brothers the mujahidin, were blessed with victory by Allah tabaraka wa ta’ala and were blessed with consolidation after long years of jihad, patience, and fighting the enemies of Allah. Allah guided them and strengthened them to establish this goal. Therefore they rushed to announce the Khilafah and appoint an Imam. This is an obligation upon the Muslims – an obligation which was abandoned for centuries, and disappeared off the face of the Earth. So many Muslims were ignorant of it and are sinful for abandoning it. It is always obligatory upon them to establish it. So now they have established it, to Allah is all praise and from Him are all blessings.” [The Khalifah Ibrahim (Sheykh Abubakar Al Baghdadi) during his Friday Khutbah in the grand Masjid of Mosul in 6th of Ramadhan 1435H]

Unfortunately, some of the jihadi claimants of our time, have turned a blind eye to the aforementioned Nusus, ijma’ and the fiqh of the Sahaba and have preffered to go by their defeatist principles that have no baisis in the religion. The following is an excerpt from one of the statements released by these defeatists; “And as it is well known from the opinions of the Jihadi leaders of our time like the shahid sheikh Usamah bin Ladin(RH), the Mujahid Sheykh Ayman Adh-Dhawahiri(HA) and the sheikh ‘Attiyatullah Al-Libi(RH) and others and from the conclusion of their long experience in Jihad, that the establishment of Emirates(Imarat), and Islamic States within the global kufr system headed by America is a sort of a joke as long as the global leader of kufr(America) has not crumbled and stopped interfering with Muslim Lands.All these apply to establishing Islamic states, what about establishing the Khilafah?” [Statement on the recent incidents in Caucusus and advice to the Mujahdeen in Caucusus published on 28th January 2015]. This statement was directed at the Mujahideen in Caucusus that wanted to give bay’ah to the Khalifah of the Muslims. Among those that signed this statement was the jabhat An-Nusrah clown Abu Maria al Qahtani, Sheykh Harith An-Nadhari and Sheykh Ibrahim Rubeishy of Al Qaidah in the Arabian peninsula(May Allah forgive their sins both), the spiteful Tariq AbdulHalim and Muheysini of Jabhat An-Nusrah.

Their claim that the jihadi leaders of our time regarded the establishment of an Islamic emirate as joke is actually a pure slander to confuse the layman. Below are the statements of the sheikhs they claimed to have deemed the establishments of jama‘ahs to be a “sort of a joke” and more. All of them were under the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan to begin with, and also endorsed other such emirates in other parts of the Muslim world and specifically the Islamic state in Iraq.

Sheykh Usamah bin Ladin said:

“Therefore, the effort to establish the greater jamaah of the Muslims becomes an obligation upon individual Muslims and Mujahideen by pledging obedience to the group most practicing the truth and characterized by it. Allah the Exalted said; “O you who believe! Fear Allah and be with the truthful.” (At-Tawbah 119)

[The Way to Foil Conspiracies on Iraq and the Islamic State – an audio statement by Shaykh Usamah Bin Laden – issued by As- Sahab Media on December 29 2007 ]

Sheykh Abu Yahya Al Libi said:

“The fact is, I consider the venturing of our brothers, the mujahideen in Iraq, to declare the setting up of the Islamic State to be pure God-given Success and to be part of the guidance which Allah has guaranteed for His worshippers The Mujahideen in His statement “And as for those who strive for us, we will surely guide them to Our ways.” (‘Anqaboot 69)

[As-Sahab’s Second Interview with Shaykh abu Yahya Al-Libi – released on September 9 2007] 

Sheykh ‘Atiyatullah Al Libi said:

“This state (The Islamic state in iraq) will be inshā’allah the nucleus for the great Islamic state and the righteous khilāfah upon the prophetic methodology.”

[Kalīmāt fī Nusrat Dawlat al-‘Iraq al-Islāmiyyah – Words in Support of the Islamic State of Iraq]


Sheykh Ayman Adh-Dhawahiri said:

“Qaida Al-Jihad Organisation in Mesopotamia has merged – by the Grace of Allah – with other Jihadi groups in the Islamic State of Iraq (May Allah Protect it), which is a legitimate emirate based on a proper legal methodology and which was founded through Shura and received the pledge of allegiance of most of the Mujahideen and tribes in Iraq. [A Review of Events – As-Sahab Media’s Fourth Interview with Sheykh Ayman Al-Dhawaahiri in Dhul Qa’dah 1428]

He also said;

“The brothers’ reason for declaring the State (Islamic State of Iraq), and we think it was rational, was that they wanted to save Iraq from the fate which the Afghan Jihad met after the fall of Kabul.”

[In “Advice of One Concerned” – issued by As-Sahab on July 6 2007]

He also said:

“Then, when Allah honoured him with martyrdom(reffering to Sheykh Abu Mus’ab Az-Zarqawi), as we see it, he was succeeded by his companion on the path of Jihad and Tawheed, Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, may Allah protect him, who strove with his honourable, sincere brothers, as we see them, to establish the Islamic State of Iraq, and it was good news for the Muslims, as they moved one step closer to the outskirts of Bayt al-Maqdis and the establishment of al-Khilafa, with Allah’s permission

[In “Advice of One Concerned” issued by as-Sahab on July 6 2007]

So we have seen the stance of the jihadi leaders of our time as regards the issue of forming an Islamic state. They were happy about such jama‘ahs and actually encouraged their formation. Never have we seen them saying that formation of an Islamic state with America still being the super power is a sort of a joke. Sadly forging such lies has become the strategy of these partisans may Allah save the ummah from their deceit.

Is the Islamic State Khawarij?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the Name of Allah, All praise be to Allaah Rubul Alameen, and May the Peace and Blessings of Allaah be upon The seal of the Prophets and Mursaleen, The Best of Guidance and Mercy lil-Aalameen, The Mujahid and Amir of the Mujahideen, The Best of Creation, Muhammad (ﷺ) and upon his family and companions and those who follow their rightly guided way until Yawm ul-Deen, as to what follows;

In the unbiased media light of a blowtorch, Islam and Muslims have remained in the cross-hairs of daily headlines for the past 13 years. We continue to find Western leaders, and their gimps in the Middle East, dividing the Muslims into two camps; Extremists and Moderates. Simultaneously, we find the Muslims within themselves adopting this same division. The location of choice to display your camp loyalty is obviously none other than your Facebook profile. Either you sport a fluffy glitter cover pic with pop singers and romance movies in your ‘likes’, a few memes of ‘Islam is a religion of peace!’ on your wall along with some Mufti Menk quotes, or you have a Black ‘Al-Qaeda’ Jee-had war flag as your cover pic with ‘Kuffar Killa’ as your current occupation, Quran, Sunnah and Abu Hajar Al-Hadrami in your ‘likes’, following Musa Cerantonio with all your settings set to private.

Despite the endless hours of back and forth debates between the two camps on facebook, twitter and forums filled with youtube links, ctrl-v IslamQ&A fataawa and capslock, it is clear that no one is willing to backdown online, they will fight it out to the death!… in an online counter-strike kinda way. This division has resurrected, mainly amongst team moderates, a derogatory term to hurl at team extremists that most people have little or no knowledge about; Khawaarij.

Offline on the ground however it is much more serious, with Takfir being a major contributing factor towards the infighting amongst the fighters in Syria, we find this Khawaarij division has taken a deadly place over the past year. The FSA and their allied groups labeling the ISIS as the Khawaarij of today in order to justify their attacks on ISIS bases, kidnapping their fighters as well as women and out-of-court executions. “They are the dogs of hell” and “We will be rewarded for killing them” have been delivered in statements by the FSA et. al, regarding the ISIS. Although these Ahadeeth are true regarding the Khawaarij, we need to ask, is the ISIS eligible to be classified as Khawaarij to begin with in order for these statements to apply to them?

So who are the Khawaarij? What are their beliefs? Are they Kuffaar? Should they be killed? When should they be fought? We must compare the methodology and beliefs of the ISIS before slapping the title “Khawaarij” to their backs and going all Shariah on ’em. So lets get right into it, as proven by the texts and scholarly consensus, the Khawaarij are one of the deviant sects that have deviated from Ahlul Sunnah Wal Jama’ah. At their earlier appearances they did not have a clear methodology that defined their beliefs other than disagreeing with the Muslim rulers, but over time their beliefs have been made apparent which i will list further on.

From the earliest narrations regarding the Khawaarij was by Abu Saeed and others from the Sahaaba may Allaah be pleased with them when The Prophet (ﷺ) was in Ji’ranah distributing gold nuggets and sliver spoils of war from Bilal’s lap, The Prophet (ﷺ) gave to his left and right but not behind him, then Abdullah bin Dhil Khawaisira at-Tamimi, a man with black patchy shaved hair wearing two white garments stood behind him and said: “Be just, O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)!” or ” You have not been just!”

The Prophet (ﷺ) became very angry and said, “Woe to you! Who would be just if I were not?” Umar bin Al-Khattab said, “Allow me to cut off his neck!” The Prophet (ﷺ) said “Leave him, for he has companions, and if you compare your prayers with their prayers and your fasting with theirs, you will look down upon your prayers and fasting, in comparison to theirs. A people will come at the end of time; as if he is one of them, reciting the Qur’an without it passing beyond their throats. They will go through Islam just as the arrow goes through the target. Their distinction will be shaving. They will not cease to appear until the last of them comes with Al-Maseeh Ad-Dajjaal.” Bukhari (and An-Nisaa’i with different wording)

I have also seen people attempting to attach the following ahadeeth to the ISIS: Yusair bin Amr said; I asked Sahl bin Hunaif, “Did you hear the Prophet (ﷺ) saying anything about Al-Khawarij?” He said; “I heard him saying while pointing his hand towards Iraq; “There will appear in it (Iraq) some people who will recite the Qur’an but it will not go beyond their throats, and they will go out from (leave) Islam as an arrow darts through the game’s body.” Bukhari. In another Hadeeth Ali may Allaah be pleased with him said “The Prophet (ﷺ) said that the sign of that is that among them there will be a man who has an upper arm, but no hand; on his upper arm there will be something like the nipple of a female breast, having white hair thereon.” Abu Dawud.

Sit down moderates! before you get excited and rush to check if Abu Bakr Al-Baghdaadi has a nipple on his arm, that specific group of Khawaarij that The Prophet (ﷺ) ordered to fight already appeared from Haruriya, Iraq, and were fought by Ali may Allaah be pleased with him as narrated by Zaid bin Wahb al-Juhani who said “I was in the army which proceeded to fight with the Khawarij in the company of Ali may Allaah be pleased with him. After fighting this particular group, Ali said: “Search for the man with the crippled hand. but they could not find it. Then Ali got up himself and went to the people who had been killed and were lying on one another. He said: Take them out. They found him just near the ground. So he shouted: “Allah is Most Great! He said: Allah spoke the truth, and His Apostle has conveyed!” Sahih Abu Dawud.

Also Abu Sa’id al-Khudri said that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) made a mention of a sect that would be among his Ummah (Khawaarij) which would emerge out of the dissension of the people. Their distinctive mark would be shaven heads. They would be the worst creatures or the worst of the creatures. The group who would be nearer to the truth out of the two would kill them. Abu Sai’d then said: People of Iraq. it is you who have killed them. Sahih Muslim.

So not only was that description and location specifically for that group of Khawaaraij and not a general description of their location forever, but it was with the help of the people of Iraq that were on the truth that fought alongside Ali and killed the Khawaarij. We also know in the Hadeeth narrated by Ibn Hawalah that The Prophet (ﷺ) said: It will turn out that you will be armed troops, one is Syria, one in the Yemen and one in Iraq. Ibn Hawalah said: Choose for me, Messenger of Allah, if I reach that time. He replied: Go to Syria, for it is Allah’s chosen land, to which his best servants will be gathered.” Abu Dawud. This tells us that there will be great Mujahideen from the Ummah in Iraq just as there will be in Syria, this also encourages the Mujahideen to go to Syria, negating the request of those who advise ISIS remain in Iraq as this would be contradictory to the advice of The Prophet (ﷺ), and if the advice was in order to prevent fitnah, why not tell the groups in Syria to accept the assistance of their brothers from Iraq? The more the merrier!

We also see in a hadeeth The Prophet (ﷺ) informing us that the best people from Iraq will pledge allegiance to Imam Mahdi along with the Syrians, which means that Mujahideen from Iraq will remain until Imam Mahdi arrives and be part of his army that will govern according to the Sunnah of The Prophet (ﷺ) and establish the law of Allaah on earth. The grade of that hadeeth however is questionable so i will not cite it although some scholars have said it is permissible to use as it does not contain any rulings or orders of Halal or Haram in it.

Now to proceed as i mentioned earlier, we must understand the beliefs of the Khawaarij to see if they match the ISIS in order to make a connection between the two groups. The scholars have listed the following main points in regards to the methodology and beliefs of the Khawaarij which are as follows:

1 – To revolt against the ruler if he disagrees with their methodology and understanding of the religion.
2 – To Render those who commit major sins as apostates and hell-bound for eternity. Some of them also believe that minor sins take one outside of the fold of Islaam.
3 – They believe no Muslim who enters hell will ever come out, rejecting the Hadeeth and consensus.
4 – They do not recognize or acknowledge the Khilaafah of Uthmaan and Ali may Allaah be pleased with them.
5 – They Permit the Greater Khilaafah to be a man from other than Quraish, free man or a slave, arab or a non-arab, and other groups from within them do not see having a Khilaafah as important at all, rather the people should sort out their affairs for themselves, and if they feel the need for an Imaam they may choose one.
6 – They Abolish the ruling of stoning of the adulterer.
7 – Some of them deny Surat Yusuf saying that it is not befitting to have a love story in the Quran.
8 – Prayer is still obligatory upon women during their menses, rejecting the Hadeeth and consensus.
9 – Emaan (faith) does not increase or decrease.
10 – Not doing an obligatory act is apostasy.
11 – To fight and kill Muslims who they view as apostates and leave fighting the enemies of Islam.
12 – The Khawaarij are followers of whims and desires and innovation.

So with that being said we can clearly agree that this is not the methodology of the ISIS. They did not revolt against a ruler, rather they have been revolted against as they have been established much longer than any group currently fighting in Syria, they do not make Takfir of major or minor sins as far as we know of, they acknowledge and love all the companions may Allaah be pleased with them all, they not only support a khilafah from Quraish but reject any other to be leader since Al-Baghdaadi seems to be the most eligible, they are attempting to rule by the law of Allaah not abolish it and even implement it on their own fighters, they do not deny any verses or chapters of the Quran, they do not require women to pray during their menses, they believe faith increases and decreases, they do not make Takfir on the general population and did not initiate killing Muslims while leaving the enemy, they hold firmly to the law of Allaah and disregard their whims and desires and are against innovation.

But lets play it out anyway and pretend they are Khawaarij just to make a point, if they are Khawaarij do we consider them as disbelievers? According to the majority of scholars, no, they are not. Al-Imaam An-Nawawi may Allaah have mercy on him said from Sharh Muslim: “The view of Al-Shaafa‘i and the majority of his fellow scholars is that the Khawaarij are not disbelievers, this also applies to the Qadariyyah and the majority of the Mu‘tazilah and other groups that follow whims and desires” end quote.

قال النووي رحمه الله :
” وَمَذْهَب الشَّافِعِيّ وَجَمَاهِير أَصْحَابه الْعُلَمَاء أَنَّ الْخَوَارِج لَا يَكْفُرُونَ , وَكَذَلِكَ الْقَدَرِيَّة وَجَمَاهِير الْمُعْتَزِلَة وَسَائِر أَهْل الْأَهْوَاء ” انتهى من “شرح مسلم”

Also, we see from Majmua Al-Fataawa, Sheikh ul-Islam Ibn Taymiyah may Allaah have mercy on him said: “The Khawaarij who deviated, whom the Prophet (ﷺ) enjoined us to fight, and whom Ameer al-Mu’mineen Ali, may Allah be pleased with him fought, and whom the leading scholars of Islam among the Sahaaba, Taabi‘een and those who came after them were unanimously agreed upon fighting, were not described as disbelievers by Ali ibn abi Taalib, Sa‘d ibn Abi Waqqaas and others among the Sahaaba, rather they regarded them as Muslims even though they fought them, and Ali did not fight them until they shed blood unlawfully and raided the property of the Muslims; then he fought them in order to ward off their wrongdoing and aggression, not because they were disbelievers. Hence he did not take their women captive and he did not seize their wealth as booty.” end quote.

:قال شيخ الإسلام ابن تيمية رحمه الله
” الْخَوَارِجُ الْمَارِقُونَ الَّذِينَ أَمَرَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ بِقِتَالِهِمْ قَاتَلَهُمْ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ أَبِي طَالِبٍ أَحَدُ الْخُلَفَاءِ الرَّاشِدِينَ ، وَاتَّفَقَ عَلَى قِتَالِهِمْ أَئِمَّةُ الدِّينِ مِنْ الصَّحَابَةِ وَالتَّابِعِينَ وَمَنْ بَعْدَهُمْ ، وَلَمْ يُكَفِّرْهُمْ عَلِيُّ بْنُ أَبِي طَالِبٍ وَسَعْدُ بْنُ أَبِي وَقَّاصٍ وَغَيْرُهُمَا مِنْ الصَّحَابَةِ بَلْ جَعَلُوهُمْ مُسْلِمِينَ مَعَ قِتَالِهِمْ وَلَمْ يُقَاتِلْهُمْ عَلِيٌّ حَتَّى سَفَكُوا الدَّمَ الْحَرَامَ وَأَغَارُوا عَلَى أَمْوَالِ الْمُسْلِمِينَ فَقَاتَلَهُمْ لِدَفْعِ ظُلْمِهِمْ وَبَغْيِهِمْ لَا لِأَنَّهُمْ كُفَّارٌ ، وَلِهَذَا لَمْ يَسْبِ حَرِيمَهُمْ وَلَمْ يَغْنَمْ أَمْوَالَهُمْ ” .
انتهى من “مجموع الفتاوى”

We also find in Lama’at ul-I’tiqaad that Sheikh ‘Abd ur-Rahmaan ibn Saalih al-Mahmoud may Allaah preserve him was asked if the Khawaarij are kaafirs, he replied “The correct view is that they are not to be regarded as disbelievers. Ali ibn abi Taalib may Allaah be pleased with him was asked are they disbelievers? He said: They fled from disbelief, but they fell into the innovation of labeling others as disbelievers; we will not fall into the innovation of labeling others as disbelievers and thus label them as such. This is the correct view, In shaa Allaah, even though their innovations may be described as innovations that constitute kufr.” end quote.

:وسئل الشيخ عبد الرحمن بن صالح المحمود حفظه الله : ” هل الخوارج كفار؟ ” فأجاب
” الصحيح أنهم لا يكفرون ؛ فقد سئل عنهم علي بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنه : أكفار هم ؟ قال : ” من الكفر فروا ” ، فهم وقعوا في بدعة التكفير ، فلا نقع نحن في بدعة التكفير فنكفرهم ، هذا هو القول الراجح إن شاء الله تعالى ، وإن كان يطلق على بدعهم أنها بدع كفرية ” انتهى من “شرح كتاب لمعة الاعتقاد”

So two points must be noted here, number one; attaching one or two doubtful traits to a group does not qualify as evidence to issue a ruling otherwise it would lead to chaos and a great injustice, let us take two ahadeeth for example and see the outcome;

1 – Ibn `Umar narrated that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said: “A believer eats in one intestine (is satisfied with a little food), and a kafir or a hypocrite eats in seven intestines (eats too much). Bukhari.

2 – Abu Huraira narrated that The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “The signs of a hypocrite are three: Whenever he speaks he tells a lie; whenever he is entrusted he proves dishonest; whenever he promises he breaks his promise.” Bukhari.

Can we now conclude from these two Hadeeth that if we find a Muslim overweight from eating too much who has been caught spreading lies is now an apostate hypocrite Kaafir and is permissible to be killed? I should hope not, similarly we cannot conclude that the ISIS are the Khawaarij based on mere skepticism and the possibility that they might qualify for one or two of their traits without clear evidence, after all, we are the people of proof and not whims and desires.

And number two, the Khawaarij are not Kuffaar and they should not be fought until they begin shedding blood unlawfully and raiding the property of the Muslims. So even if the FSA et. al, believed the ISIS were in fact Khawaarij, it would still not be permissible to fight them for no excusable reason, and if they stopped, then fighting them must also stop. We have seen the FSA et. al using the verse of Allaah:

“And if two factions among the believers should fight, then make settlement between the two. But if one of them oppresses the other, then fight against the one that oppresses until it returns to the ordinance of Allah . And if it returns, then make settlement between them in justice and act justly. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly.” 49:9

Firstly, that verse could very easily apply against them rather than for them as the FSA et. al are visibly the ones committing the oppression, and secondly that verse was mentioned to Ibn Umar by a man trying to force him to fight against a group of Muslims, so Ibn Umar said, “O son of my brother! I would rather be blamed for not fighting because of this Verse than to be blamed because of another Verse where Allah says: “But whoever kills a believer intentionally – his recompense is Hell, wherein he will abide eternally, and Allah has become angry with him and has cursed him and has prepared for him a great punishment.” 4:93 – Bukhari.

With this information we cannot agree with the claims of the FSA and their allies that the ISIS are Khawaarij based on the fact that they think anyone who makes Takfeer on another Muslim is from the Khawaarij and should be fought, this shows the lack of knowledge of the laws of Allaah amongst their leadership as well as an inability to control their men. The ISIS must openly state that their beliefs coincide with all of the Khawaarij beliefs and fight the Muslims before a call to fight them can be made, which as far as we know neither have taken place. In fact what we have seen from the ISIS is a call to unity, a mubahaa, to cease the infighting, and to focus on the enemy, all of which have fallen on deaf ears and gone unanswered.

What is rather amusing is that if we use the mentality and judgement of the FSA, more traits could be applied to them that they are in fact the Khawaarij, let us see if they qualify to the following; They do not implement the stoning of the adulterer or any law of Allaah for that matter, They fight and kill the Muslims calling them apostates and have left fighting the SAA, They shave, They pass through Islaam quickly, one day praying, the next day cursing Islaam, they follow their whims and desires and innovation, they wear skinny jeans (i just threw that one in there because it is disgusting, however it is not a mentioned trait). Here we see the FSA actually qualify as Khawaarij more than the ISIS do based upon a trait count and their judgement system. Since they are so eager to earn rewards from Allaah for fighting the Khawaarij, maybe they should begin with killing themselves.

As for the fighting between Jabhat un-Nusrah and the ISIS all i can say is Allahul Musta’aan, leaders from both must renew their intentions and meet as brothers for the sake of Allaah to genuinely seek an agreement quietly out of the public, plan towards what is best for the Ummah in accordance with the Quran and Sunnah, and ensure these decisions are understood and enforced by the military commanders in all provinces so that Allaah will bless their efforts and give them victory, Allaah has said:

“And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided. And remember the favor of Allah upon you – when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers.” 3:103

Did the Islamic State make Takfir on the Taliban?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim

It has come to our attention that people of falsehood and deviance have been spreading an edited video of a an Islamic State Shari’ allegedly making Takfir against the Afghan Taliban. Having examined this video, it is clear that the conversation taking place in the video was a hypothetical discussion regarding the Taliban joining the UN and placing UN laws above those of the divine Shariah.

This discussion based on a question asked by a person who later turned out to be a spy working for the Islamic Front, who then proceeded to post the video on the internet in an edited form which did not make clear this was a hypothetical discussion.

Soon after, Islamic State sources denied that they made Takfir on the Afghan Taliban and they condemned the Munafiqeen who made the recording and misquoted it.

The following is an English translation of the statement, followed by the original Arabic:


1 March 2014

Statement From The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant on the sayings of the deceivers. 

In the name of God, the Beneficent the Merciful,

All praise is due to God, Lord of the worlds, and peace and blessing upon the Imam of the Mujahideen, our prophet Muhammad, and upon his family and companions. To proceed:

The Islamic State has been slandered with the accusation that it has put takfeer on the Taliban, the Emir of the Jihad Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri, and Sheikh Osama bin Laden. These sensationalist allegations were based on recorded audio message from one of the brothers in one of the provinces in Syria, who are linked with different groups.

Putting out trust in God, we say: We seek innocence from God from every abusive statement in contradiction to the Manhaj of the people of the Sunna, which is the known Manhaj of the Islamic State. It is also Manhaj that governs all of our Emirs. We therefore say to the enemies of the Jihad: We do not rejoice in distorting our Manhaj, for it is clearer than the sun at midday, and purer than the roil mentioned, which we shall document from, by the will of God. It is proven that a Mujahid in The Islamic State took them away; a lesson to others by the will of God.  There would be no good in it for us if we had not done this.

False rumors have also been spread to distort the image of The Islamic State, primarily in circumstances surrounding the killing of Abu Khaled al-Suri, and the attributing of this to The Islamic State with no evidence, only that we are in a heated war with the Islamic Front and all their elements on the ground after they became party to fighting the Islamic State; a treacherous conspiracy in which the efforts of the Muhajireen of the Islamic State were hindered. Amongst them was Sheikh Mujahid Abu Bakr al-Iraqi, killed at the hands of the Islamic Front itself. We did not order the killing of Abu Khaled al-Suri and would not have.  In fact, we are completely sundered by what happened in Aleppo. With that being said, The Islamic State is constantly being accused of what had occurred there.

We assure all that the decisions of the Islamic State are only issued by the Emir of the Believers, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and then from the Shura Committee. Individuals or soldiers do not issue them. The members of the Shura Committee are from the previous Mujahideen who went through trials and tribulations along with Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi, Abu Hamza al-Muhajir and Abu Omar al-Baghdadi. These members have shone the spotlight on The Islamic State, and shown the group’s virtues when in al-Qaeda; others in official speeches by the Emir of the Believers, or have been spokespeople for The Islamic State.  Whosoever does not thank the people, does not thank God. Had it not been for God, and then, the people before us, we would not have reached Iraq and the Levant. We and the rest of the Muslims therefore use the example of the people before us. However, if we attribute it to individuals within The Islamic State, this would be contrary to the teachings of those before us. If such things are proven, it will be referred to the Sharia court in the Islamic State, and they will be held accountable as required by the Sharia.

And God is Great.

And might belongs to Allah and His Messenger and the believers, but the hypocrites know not.

We ask God to guide us and make us stand firm.


بيان موقف الدّولة الإسلامية من مقالة المفترين

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الحمد لله ربّ العالمين، والصّلاة والسّلام على إمام المُجاهدين نبيّنا محمّد، وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين… وبعد:

فقد نُسبت للدّولة الإسلاميّة مقالة مُفتراة زعم فيها مروّجوها أنها تقول بكفر الطالبان أو أمراء الجماعات الجهادية كالدّكتور الظواهري حفظه الله والشيخ أسامة بن لادن تقبله الله، وقد استند مثيرو هذه الشّبهة على تسجيل صوتي منسوب لإخوة في إحدى ولايات الشّام وهم يناظرون أقراناً لهم من جماعات أخرى.

فنقول متوكّلين على الله: إننا نبرأ إلى الله من كلّ قولٍ مُخالفٍ لمنهج أهل السنّة والجماعة، والذي هو منهج الدّولة الإسلامية المعروف المبسوط والمحكم في كلام أمرائها، ونقول لأعداء المشروع الجهادي وشانئيه: لا تفرحوا ببضاعتكم المُزجاة، فمنهج الدّولة الإسلاميّة أوضح من الشمس في رابعة النهار، وأصفى من أن تكدّره مثلُ هذه الوقائع التي سنستوثق منها إن شاء الله تعالى، ولئن ثبت أنّ مجاهداً في الدّولة الإسلامية قال بها فوالله لنأخذنّ على يديه أخذاً يكون فيها عبرة لغيره بإذن الله تعالى كائناً من كان، ولا خير فينا إن لم نفعل ذلك.

وقد كثُرت الإشاعات والأراجيف التي تهدف لتشويه صورة الدّولة وتبرير قتالها في خضم مؤامرة الصحوات على المشروع الجهادي في الشّام، والتي ركّزت على أن تُقدّم الدّولةَ الإسلامية في صورة من ينتهج نهج الخوارج والغلاة، فتُكَفّرُ بالكبائر والظنون والمآل ولازم القول، أو تقولُ أن الأصل في المنتسبين إلى الإسلام الكفر، أو ما قيل مؤخراً بأنّها تُكفّرُ المجاهدين -أمراءهم وجنودهم- في خراسان أو غيرها والعياذ بالله.

ومثلُ ذلك ما طار به السّفهاء وصُنّاع الفتن في اتهام الدّولة الإسلاميّة بقتل القيادي في أحرار الشّام أبي خالد السّوري، والمسارعة في إلصاق ذلك بالدّولة دون بيّنة، ورغم أننا في حربٍ محتدمة مع الجبهة الإسلاميّة بكل مكوناتها على الأرض بعد أن صاروا جزءاً من المؤامرة في قتال الدّولة الإسلاميّة، تلك المؤامرة الغادرة التي سقط فيها خيرة المهاجرين والأنصار من قيادات وجنود الدّولة، منهم الشيخ المجاهد أبو بكر العراقي رحمه الله والذي قتلته أيادٍ غادرة من الجبهة الإسلاميّة نفسها، إلا أننا لم نأمر بقتل أبي خالد ولم نُستأمر، بل نحن منقطعون كليّاً عن الموطن الذي كان يتواجد فيه بعد انحيازنا من مدينة حلب، ومع ذلك فالدّولة هي المتّهمة عند هؤلاء دائماً.

وهنا نؤكد على أن قرارات ومواقف الدولة الإسلامية لا تصدر إلا من أميرها أمير المؤمنين البغدادي حفظه الله ثم من مجلس الشورى، لا الأفراد من طلبة العلم والجنود، وأعضاء المجلس هم من المجاهدين السابقين الذين عركتهم سنوات من التّجارب والمحن مع الأئمة أبي مصعب الزرقاوي وأبي حمزة المهاجر وأبي عمر البغدادي رحمهم الله، وسبق وبيّنت الدّولة الإسلاميّة موقفها وذكرت فضائل من سبقنا في تنظيم القاعدة وغيرهم في خطب رسمية لأمير المؤمنين والناطق الرسمي للدّولة الإسلاميّة، ومن لم يشكر الناس لم يشكر الله، ومعاذ الله أن ننكر أفضال هؤلاء، إذ لولا الله ثم من سبقنا في هذا الطّريق لما وصل الجهاد إلى العراق والشام، فنحن نقرّ لأهل السبق فضلهم العظيم علينا وعلى المسلمين، وأما إن نُسبت إلى أفراد من الدولة الإسلامية أقوالٌ تُخالف هذا الأصل، فهي لا تمثّلها، وإن ثبت فسيتم إحالة أصحابها للمحاكم الشرعية في الدولة الإسلامية ومحاسبتهم بما يقتضيه الشرع؛ ونسأل الله أن يهدينا ويثبّتنا حتى نلقاه وهو راضٍ عنّا.

والله أكبر
{وَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ وَلِرَسُولِهِ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَلَكِنَّ الْمُنَافِقِينَ لا يَعْلَمُونَ}
