Al-Kata`ib Establishment for Media Production,
In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate,
Think not of those who are slain in Allah way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord; they rejoice in the bounty provided by Allah. And with regard to those left behind, who have not yet joined them (in their bliss), the (Martyrs) glory in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they (cause to) grieve. They glory in the Grace and the bounty from Allah, and in the fact that Allah suffereth not the reward of the Faithful to be lost (in the least),` (Koranic verses, Al Imran, 3:169-171).
Praise be to God, Who says in His book:
'And their Lord hath accepted of
them, and answered them: "Never will I suffer to be lost the work of any
of you, be he male or female: Ye are members, one of another: Those who
have left their homes, or been driven out therefrom, or suffered harm in
My Cause, or fought or been slain,- verily, I will blot out from them
their iniquities, and admit them into Gardens with rivers flowing
beneath;- A reward from the presence of Allah, and from His presence is
the best of rewards,` (Koranic verse, Al Imran, 3:195).
Prayers and peace be upon our Prophet, the leader, and the role model, Muhammad, who said: `I swear to God, I would like to fight in the cause of God and I get killed. Then, I fight and I get killed. Then, I fight and I get killed.
We have received with a heart full of contentment, to the ordainment of God, the news of the martyrdom of two of the most prominent leaders of Islam and two men of its men in this era, in which real men have become rare. These men are the Amir of the Believers, Abu-Umar al-Baghdadi al-Husayni, and his Minister of War, Abu-Hamzah al-Muhajir, who inflicted all sorts of torture on the Americans and their quislings, the rejectionists and apostates. They have also established a firm foundation for the Islamic State and they were on the front line of those who are seeking to regain Al-Aqsa (Mosque) and purge it from the filth of the Jews, the grandsons of monkeys and pigs.
O Amir of the Believers, enjoy the blessings Abu-Umar al-Husayni, you fought in all the battlefields. In the field of telling the truth, you were its knight who never retreated. In the arenas of war, you were the lion who could not be defeated. In the field of the political Shari`ah and the state affairs, you were its man of wisdom and its planner. This is not strange because you deserved it, and you belonged to the household of the chosen Prophet, prayers and peace be upon him.
(Start of the poetic verses)
This is the man, who has his footstep known by the deserts,
The Ka`bah knows him and the holy mosque,
This is the son of the finest of all worshipers,
This is the pious, pure, chaste, and prominent man,
If Quraysh tribe saw him, the members of the tribe would say: After the generosity of this man, there is not generosity.
He is characterized with bashfulness and yet he is feared.
He smiles when he talks.
His appearance can be likened to that of the Prophet.
His behavior, attitude, and conduct are the finest.
Nobody can reach what he reached.
No people can be compared to his generosity.
(End of poetic verses)
Congratulations Abu-Hamzah, you were so eager to join the caravan of your brothers and the companions of your path, such as Abu-Mus`ab al-Zarqawi and Abu-Anas al-Shami, may God accept them (as martyrs).
The battlefields knew you as a brave leader. How great you are! You always exhausted the enemies of the religion and demolished their edifices.
(Start of poetic verse)
He was the one who turn on the firebrand of war when it is extinguished.
He was the one who never retreat when the war is on.
The battles are decided at his hands in a scene, which cannot be compared with any
other scene and a logic that is not related to the imaginations.
He is a powerful man that no one can defeat and a wise person, who never takes irrational decisions
We have always been busy with his assaults
The events show that he can bear our responsibilities and the world says that he is a hero.
(End of poetic verses)
As for you, the soldiers and leaders of the Islamic State, keep your feet firm on the path and be tough against the enemies of God. The Islamic State of Iraq is your responsibility and the Islamic ummah is closely monitoring your deeds and awaits you to quench its thirst.
Almighty God says:
`And slacken not in following up the enemy: If ye are suffering hardships, they are suffering similar hardships; but ye have Hope from Allah, while they have none. And Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom,` (Koranic verse, Al-Nisa, 4:104).
Expect the good tidings when listening to
the saying of the chosen Prophet, prayers and peace be upon him: After you
there is days of patience. Those who will be patient and continue on the
same path on that day will be rewarded as 50 of you are rewarded.` The
companions of the Prophet said: `O Prophet of God, will this man be one of
us?` The Prophet replied: `Yes, he will be one of you.`
Imam Abdallah Bin-Mubarak narrated in his book `Jihad,` on the authority of Yazid al-Uqayli, may God be pleased with him, the Prophet of God, prayers and peace be upon him said: There will be people among my ummah, who will mend the rifts in the ranks of jihad and give out the rights to the others. They will not acquire their rights. These people belong to me and I belong to them.
As for you, Sunnis in Iraq, we ask God to console you in your calamity by giving you good successors.
God Almighty says: `O ye who believe! Be not like the Unbelievers, who say of their brethren, when they are traveling through the Earth or engaged in fighting:
If they had stayed with us, they would not have died, or been slain." This that Allah may make it a cause of sighs and regrets in their hearts. It is Allah that gives Life and Death, and Allah sees well all that ye do,` (Koranic verse, Al Imran, 3:156).
Ibn-Ishaq narrated that when the advocates come together to pledge allegiance to the Messenger of God, Al-Abbas Ibn-al-Ubadah Ibn-Nazlah arose and spoke to the people: `Do you know on what you pledge allegiance to this man?` They answered: `Yes.` He resumed: `You are indeed headed for warfare with peoples both red and white (an expression indicating great scope and variety), as well as with the kings of this world! If you think that you will abandon him whenever calamity befalls you, then, do not imperil him because it is a very shameful thing to do. However, if you think that you can fulfill the promises, which you made in inviting him to come to you and can defend him against his enemies, then assume the responsibilities, which you have taken upon yourselves, for he is the best of the people in this life and in the hereafter. They said: `We shall defend him despite any calamity.` Then, they enquired: `O Messenger of God, what shall be our benefit from all this?` He answered: `You shall have Paradise.`
You should be loyal to your leaders and avenge them; be exemplary advocates.
A poet said
فيدركُ ثأرَ الله أنصارُ دينه *** ولله أوسٌ
لعل قلوبًا قد أطلتم غليلها *** ستظفرُ منكم بالشفاءِ فتثلجُ
Finally, I address
the jihadist leaders and shaykhs in the Land of Khurasan (Afghanistan): I
ask God to grant you reward and to console you.
God Almighty says:
`Ye shall certainly be tried and tested in your
possessions and in your personal selves; and ye shall certainly Hear much
that will grieve you, from those who received the Book before you and from
those who worship many gods. But if ye persevere patiently, and guard
against evil,-then that will be a determining factor in all affairs,`(Koranic
verse, Al Imran, 3:186).
With God`s will, the ummah will remain begetting competent leaders, who will continue the journey and support you.
I say to Shaykh Abu-Abdallah, Usamah ( Usama Bin Ladin),
أفي كل عامٍ لا تزال مُروعًا *** بفرد نعي تارةً أو بتوأمِ
أحبَّ بنوك المكرمات ففُرِّقت *** جماعتهم في كل دهياء صيلمِ
فكُلٌ له قبرٌ ببلدةٍ *** فمن منجدٍ نائي الضريح ومتهمِ
قبورٌ بأطراف الثغور كأنها *** مواقعها منها مواقع أنجمِ
نوادب في أقصى خُراسان جاوبت *** نوائِح في بغداد بُحّت ترنّمِ
مضوا يستلذون المنايا حفيظةً *** وحِفظًا لذاك السؤدد المتقدمِِ
ولمّا رأو بعض الحياة مذلةً *** عليهم وعِز الموت غير محرمِ
أبوا أن يذوقوا العيش والذم واقعٌ *** عليه وماتوا ميتةً لم تُذممِ
وكلهم أفضى إليه حِمامه *** أميرًا على تدبير جيشٍ عرمرمِ
سلامٌ على تلك الخلائق إنها *** مسلّمةٌ من كل عارٍ ومأثمِ
ولا عجب للأسد إن ظفرت بها *** كلاب الأعادي من فصيحٍ وأعجمِ
supplication is praise be to God, the Lord of all creation.
forget us in your sincere supplications.

But honor belongs to Allah and His Messenger, and to the Believers; but the Hypocrites know not,`(Al-Munafiqun, 63:8).
