Today the world governments are in confusion with the ever increasing number of Muslim youths who become “radical” and are joining the Khilafah in Shaam. Many of them are confused and excessively thinking of how that could happen. Whereas, it is actually very easy to understand the causes. The causes are as follow:

First; The colonization of the Muslim lands by the Kuffar. It cannot be hidden anymore how the Muslims have been suffering since the Kuffar and the Crusader forces are present in the Middle East, especially in Palestine. This makes anyone, who have iman in his heart, upset seeing the killings and humiliation of the Muslims. It is this feeling of brotherhood that stir many of these Muslim's heart to defend and protect their brothers and sisters.

Second; The exposure of the reality of the Thaghut. The silence of the leaders in the Muslim countries in dealing with the crisis that happen in the Middle East and the limiting of themselves to the mere boundary of diplomacy, make many Muslims question, why and what is with them? Until finally, they realized that those leaders are the Thaghut, who endeavor to stop the Muslim from directly helping their brethren, confine and campaign that to aid with the money is enough. And if investigated further it is apparent that they are having good relations with the kafir countries of America and its allies who are the enemies of the Muslims. Due to that, there is no other way but to directly come down (hijrah) to the land of Shaam.

Third; The increasingly clearer commandment of jihad. All this while the Muslims have been made busy and preoccupied by the worldly matters, this is carried out in a systematic and structured way by the kuffar, making the lifestyle of the Muslims changed from being religious to secular. As an example, the Muslims are instructed to follow the struggle through democracy and the parliament, the Muslims are also dazzled by useless things such the so-called “shari'e” fashion or “shari'e” courtship, “shari'e” businesses, etc. The point is, the life of Muslims must be distant from battles, and they are indoctrinated to busily debate on “shari'e” matters, whereas in fact it makes one neglect jihad. However, Allah SWT wills something else, the light of jihad still illuminates the Muslims, and its is getting clearer each day. And many Muslims are departing for Shaam for the fear that they will be punished in the hereafter by Allah.

Fourth; The feeling of the nearness of the presence of Imam Mahdi. It is not a secret anymore that a good young man would appear in the midst of the Muslims who would return the life of the Muslims to become like the life during the time of Rasulullah. There are many well-known hadiths that talk about the coming of the day. The conquest of Rome, Turkey and the occurrence of the battle of Malhamah Al Kubra make the Muslims prepare to become a part of the forces of Imam Mahdi. There are many Muslims who can feel that it is during this lifetime of theirs that Imam Mahdi would appear based on the signs that have been witnessed. So, whoever understands the narrations about the end-times would surely prepare themselves to depart to Shaam without delay and become an army of the blessed Imam Mahdi to battle against the Christians in Dabiq.

President of Muslim Association of Japan, Also An Expert In Political Science And Shari'ah, Dr. Hasan Ko Nakata, Phd. Joined Dawlah Islamiyyah (IS)

Professor Dr. Hasan Ko Nakata, Phd. an expert in Political Science and Shari'ah was one of 9 Japanese nationals who reportedly joined Dawlah Islamiyyah (IS).

Hasan Ko Nakata, who was the President of the Muslim Association of Japan reverted to Islam in his third year at the faculty of Islamic Studies at Tokyo University. Before that, he was very acquainted with the Christian religion. It was no surprise that during his earlier years at Tokyo University, he joined the Bible study group. It was there where he got familiar with the studies of Comparative Religion

He studied the subject of Comparative Religion in Christianity, Judaism, Shinto, Buddhism and Islam. When weighing and comparing for about a year he felt that the teachings of Islam is the most comprehensive. “I found that it was Islam which is the most comprehensive, rational and consistent system of life, and finally by Allah SWT's mercy I decided to embrace Islam,” he said. He thus added the name “Hassan” in front of his original name. He had looked into the tariqat of Naqshabandiyah and Syaziliah. “However, I was not a good student,” he said.

After getting his degree, Hassan wanted to explore into Islam deeper. But there had not been any master program on Islamic Studies in Japanese Universities. It was also difficult to get Islamic books in Japanese language. Fortunately, not long after that, Tokyo University opened a master program on Islamic Studies. ''I became the first and the last Muslim student in the field of Islamic Studies at Tokyo University for 25 years,'' said this Proffesor.

After finishing his master at Tokyo University, he continued his doctorate study at Cairo University. His dissertation was on the Political Thinking of Ibn Taymiyah (al-Fikratu al-Siyasatu 'inda Ibni Taymiya). He explained in that dissertation the uniqueness of the political thinking of Ibnu Taymiyah in the history of political thinking and his influence on the contemporary political movement, which includes Hizbut Tahrir. After passing his doctorate, Hassan became a researcher at the Japanese Embassy in Saudi Arabia (1992-1995). No wonder he could speak Arabic fluently.

His activities in da'wah in the Country of Sakura can be classified as prominent. The characteristic of the Japanese people which is  indifferent towards religions drove him to find a way so as to be able to propagate Islam. Moreover, there were very few dai'e's with quality.

The only best way to spread Islam in Japan, according to him, is through the personal influence of the workers of da'wah who have a broad and deep knowledge about Islam with a good personality, as well as an understanding of the Japanese culture.

He, together with the Japanese Muslim who are the minority, conducted various efforts, which included translating a number of classical books such as “Tafsir al-Jalalain”, “al-Siyasah al-Syar'iyyah of Ibn Taimiyyah” and “Zad al-Mustaqni' al-Hujawi al-Hanbali”, as well as publishing monthly magazines that were disseminated for free to all Japanese Muslims and throughout the world as an information and communication media.

Hasan Ko Nakata had served as the President of the Muslim Association of Japan while teaching Islamic Studies at Doshisha University, Kyoto. A majority of his students were in fact Christian. Being the principal for four years at Doshisha, Hassan managed to lure four of his students, who were originally atheist, to convert to Islam.

His name stood out in Indonesia when there was an International Khalifah Conference organized by Hizbut Tahrir at the Utama Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, Jakarta, August 2007. He was one of the speakers of the akbar activities which struck the world at that time. Before that, not many Muslims of Indonesia knew of a Japanese intellectual whose attention on the da'wah of Islam is so great.

Earlier, Hasan believed in the conception of Hizbut Tahrir in terms of the establishment of the caliphate, however with the passing of time and review of thoughts, Hassan Ko Nakata changed.

The impossibility of the establishment of the caliphate with only da'wah and thoughts without the true jihad (Qital) just like Hizbut Tahrir became the main reason for Hasan Ko Nakata to make hijrah to Darul Islam. Allahu Akbar!!!

[Personality]: The Story Of Wildan Mukhallad, A Mujahid From Indonesia Who Sought Honour In The Land Of ‘Dawlah Islam’

Shoutussalam – The Editorial of Shoutussalam received an e-mail which contains the story of the journey of an Indonesian Mujahid, who sought an everlasting honour in the land of the Khilafah in Iraq and Syria. Shaheed -InsyaAllah-.

Wildan Mukhallad, the youth whose name instantly adorned every corner of the
Nusantara (Malay Archipelago) mass media that is now hardworkingly aiming the arrows of propaganda and fitnah at a small group of Mujahideen, who sacrifice their blood, lives and wealth for the sake of becoming the defenders and saviors of the Muslims (Ahlus Sunnah) from the tyranny of the cruel Shiahs.

They are the Dawlah Islamiyyah or the media called it “ISIS”.

Below is the simple but extraordinary writing!

A Little Closer With Wildan Mukhallad, A Mujahid Of Dawlah Who Aspired For Shaheed

By: Abu Qudama 

He was only 16 years old then, the name Wildan Mukhallad had already become a hot topic at the pesantren (Islamic boarding school) where he stayed. This innocent, simple teen, who did not know much of the outside and wild intermixing. But his innocence and simplicity did neat mean ignorance, because his innocence and simplicity are honesty, sincerity and being himself as he is.

There has not been until now, in his pesantren, a student who matches himself in terms of piety and intelligence. Why not, as if every year was his to celebrate the championship in his pesantren. Almost all scores were mumtaz (excellent). And at that 16 years of age also, he became a
huffadz, the one and only student who was hafidz. Because of that, books as prizes from the row of achievements once filled the pile of books on the table at his home.

“There has not been until this moment,” said an Ustadz in his pesantren, “a student who always precedes the Ustadzs and other students to arises at three o'clock in the morning and heads towards the masjid. Performing solat tahajjud and waiting for the Subuh time while doing the muraja’ah of his memorization. Except Wildan.”

Yes, Wildan Mukhallad. His life was a flurry of activity. A flurry of activity in enslaving himself to his Lord, activities of immersing himself with knowledge and Al-Quran.

He was known as a student who likes to help others. The job of sending/fetching the children of his ustadz to/from school, to helping to get the grass into the farm/field as fodders for his ustadz's cattles was a normal thing. Very normal indeed. The demeanor of egotism was not in his dictionary, it was not in his mind that a smallest good deed could lower the self-esteem. It was here where he began the phase of conducting jihad, from fighting against the most trivial nafs (carnal desires) to finally plunging himself in the jihad of fighting against the kuffar.

Do not ask about the understanding of the shar’ie knowledge, because the height of his knowledge is the height of his humbleness. Shy, quiet and well-mannered towards the other speaker. He did not indulge in throwing much words, he did not indulge in much talking. But his every act was impressive , his diligence in his ibaadah was amazing. It was unnatural for a
kid that young, at that time, that in almost every theme of his talk it was all about concerns for the fate of the Muslims. He always uttered the kalimah that, as though, became a zikir in his daily life; jihad fie sabilillah.

It had once become a confusion, as well as the family fears. How could such a young son be already so serious in uttering the words "jihad" and dying Shaheed. But the solidity of Wildan was the solidity of his iman.

So that when he had to be transferred from his pesantren to study in a school, in the same level as the SMA (upper high school) at Al-Azhar, Egypt, he vaguely said to one of his brothers when bidding farewell, “Brother, make do'a (for me).” The voice sounded like a “cunning” tone of utterance, i.e. so that he would find the way to conducting jihad. Wallahu a’lam.

In Egypt, he remained as an intelligent student at his
school. He even had a chance to follow the program of “acceleration”. Not long after, at that time he had only become a student at Al-Azhar, he suddenly went missing after a few times intensely mixing with those foreign people. And true, some time after that he appeared with an unfamiliar phone number, “Alhamdulillah, I am already in the land of Sham. The land honoured by Allah.”

Masha Allah, Masha Allah. Between sadness and happiness, between worry and tumult. But at a time when he was cried over by family members, he instead came as an entertainer, “The pleasure of jihad cannot be illustrated!” he said.

He had
even been joking when telling how beautiful it was, during a journey, to see the mountains in Istanbul, carrying himself like a super rich youth, and enjoying the view of the high plains that was covered in snow. “It's me in the middle of an excursion,” he said. “And the excursion of the believers is jihad fie sabilillah.”

He recounted of how during his earlier days in Syria he was still merely a “helper”, being a youngster needed to help fetch the bullets and arms. And then he was promoted to be a “traffic policeman”, and then he was assigned to do ribath in the mountains, until at its height he was standing in the frontmost outpost in battles.

“I was standing only four meters away from the people of Shiah Nusairiyah. We were face to face and mutually scoffing at each other, buy once threatened, they ran away helter skelter. Their mentality was very low in the presence of the Mujahideen,” he blurted in a laughter.

Aleppo, the first place where he stopped, in a villa in the mountains. “This villa I am occupying is from a ghanimah, used to belong to the kafir Shiah,” h
e said cheerfully.

There, besides the fact that he was a huffadz, he also had a golden voice that caused him to be given the trust to be the imam of the Mujahideen in solat. The entire local community welcomed it, until at one time he recounted, “Only now that I feel like a rich man. Holding plenty of money. All were given by the neighbours.”

Besides that, he was also known to the Mujahideen as a teenager whose akhlaq is mumtaz. His presence as teen Mujahid was very revered, well-respected and he was one whose quality of ahkhlaq and ibaadah are acknowledged.

And then it was at this point, in a tone that was so calm he delivered a shattering message, “I am not able to repay all Ma’e's (Mother's) kindness, I just want to give her a present, namely Shaheed fie sabilillah.”

Not long after that, it was time for him to change the place of duty, somewhere which he did not mention. But one day, it all became clear, that he was in Iraq. That information came along with the incoming news that he had conducted the amaliyah istisyhadiyah, totally destroying the ranks of the regime of Shiah Safawiyah, Nuri Al-Maliki. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar!

This is Wildan Mukhallad. The teen whom, in the secular media, was called an immature teenager who died uselessly, who died meaninglessly, by the journalists who seek livelihood and fill their bellies by hurting the feelings of the sincere slaves of Allah.

This is Wildan Mukhallad. The teen who was hated because of the solidity of his aqeedah, not because of the badness of his akhlaq. He greeted death with his 'ilm, not with his ignorance. Wallahu a’lam bil-haqqi wal-waqi’.

This writing is, at the same time, also a letter for Madam Fadhilah, so that her heart is pacified after having been bombarded with the storms of fitnah for some weeks. The mother with a strong heart, as strong as the principles of your son who chose the path of Shaheed.

TRIPOLI, Lebanon – In early August, about two months after Khaled Mahmoud Al Hajj left his hometown in Tripoli, Lebanon, in order to join Daulah Islamiyah (IS), Khaled called his brother from Iraq for the last time.

"I tried to stop him," said Mohammad, 25, Khaled's brother. 

But my request was not heard, and on 7th August 2014, Khaled conducted an act of Istishadiyah in the area of Kadhimiya, Baghdad. Khaled was only 18 years old.

Khaled was not anywhere near a person who is fanatic in matters of religion. Those who know him said, "He was a good student at school, and portrayed himself as someone who is good and educated. He enjoyed a trip to the beach, shopping and he loved poetry." 

"He was also not religious," Mohammad added. 

"He witnessed the persecution of Muslims in Iraq and he said to me: 'The American soldiers are killing us. Al-Sistani (Shiah's scholar) and the Shi'ites are killing us. The Shi'ite government of Iraq are killing us, oppressing us and raping our women and slaughtering our children. I want to kill all of them,'" Khaled told his brother.

Motivated by the injustices against fellow Muslims in Iraq, Khaled who was not in the category of a religious/obedient Muslim was moved and thus left his normal life in Lebanon in order to defend his brothers in iman, carry out jihad fie sabilillah until finally attaining shahadah

It is really unbelievable when a Muslim who claims to be religious or acts as if he is religious, can only be silent, dumbfounded witnessing his brothers in iman slaughtered and massacred, in fact what's even stranger, he prevents other Muslim brothers from helping and gives them the label “terrorist”, “takfiri” or “khawarij”. Whereas he should be the one who inspires, as he has a more broad understanding of his religion, is this due to his love for the dunya?

Assalamualaikum... a good friend of mine has just departed.. an ulama' and Mujahid for this ummah .. His departure was really felt by us here.. it was from him that we gained knowledge and made reference to in matters of religion.

He was not just any ulama'.. but an ulama' who practiced what are contained in the Quran and Sunnah.. An ulama' who became a role model for his ummah, especially in this land of Nusantara (Malay Archipelago).. He had been in jihad in Afghanistan along with Sheikh Abdullah Azzam.. in Tajikistan together with Ibnu Khattab.. in jihad in the Islands of M
oluccas (Maluku in Indonesia) defending Muslims who were slaughtered by the Salib (Crusader) forces and met the Rabbulalamin in a jihad mission in the land of Sham... in places where jihad have not been inflamed he was a Dai'e who did not fear the threats from the opponents of the Truth.. Prisons are a part of his life... may Allah accept all his righteous deeds.

I m still missing you Ustaz. 

At the time when the ulama's who are they say are the lovers of Allah and His Rasul are face to face with the glares of the camera lights every day...

The ulama's who are the establishers of Sunnah are face to face with the
glares of the splinters of bombs and bullets... 

Those whom they say are Rabbani ulama's call on the ummah to be brave and able to sacrifice for religion... while in the night time they sleep comfortably enough with their wives on the softness of their beds... their bellies never feel hungry in the path of Allah at all.

While true ulama's are sleeping with the ground as their mattress and the sky as their roof for defending the religion.

Those whom they say are the ulama's who are the inheritors of the Prophet.. in reality each one of them is just filling up their gizzard under shari'e excuses...

In truth, they are not the ulama's who are the inheritors of the Prophet... but the ulama's of the bread & butter.. this ulama' of "dunya" are afraid of losing their rizq because their aqeedah towards their Rabb has been flawed... they are too afraid of hearing (the word) “prison”.. because they are not so familiar with the dangers of the hell of Jahanam.. They are too pleased with the compliments.. because they have forgotten to read the sirah of how the noble Prophet was reviled.. 
Wake up O ummah..!!!
You only need the ulama's who are the inheritors of the Prophet...
The Prophet did da'wah courageously..
The Prophet plunged into the arena of Jihad Fisabilillah..
The Prophet did not get on his knees begging for rizq...
The Prophet did the works and then he conveyed... 

The final words from me.. wake up O ummah..!!! rise up O ummah!!!
Every one of you has the courage ..
Unite every one of those courage..
It is going to be a great wave for this ummah this..

Here are my pictures of remembrance with Ustaz Mohd Lutfi (@Abu Musab al-Malaizi)... may Allah accept him as a Shaheed..

Source: from the FB of Abu Talhah (fellow Malaysian Mujahid)


From al fadhil Ustaz Mokhtar Senik..

After as-Shaheed Ustaz Lotfi Ariffin has departed, I can now narrate.....

ash-Shaheed came with Ustaz Dr. Abu Bakar Abdullah, as the Chairman of the DUPP Welfare Committee, to my office at the end of last year.

He went around the countries to deliver donations for the flood victims on behalf of the Central P.A.S. Council of Ulama's (DUPP)

On that occasion, we met in the room of my office.

"Ustaz.. I would like to ask for your opinion, what is the meaning.. I dreamed three times of drinking water from a river that tastes like honey. Every time I dreamed, I long to dream again until the fourth dream came.

I was looking around for the river and I had looked hard enough. In the end I met a virgin whom, masha Allah.. was very beautiful and gracious. I think she's a houri (he was laughing lightly at that moment).

She asked me, what are you searching akhi?.. I said was looking for the river that tastes like honey which I had drunk before this. The virgin smiled.

O Akhi.. if you want to drink more, come to Syria, I will wait for you there akhi.."

She stopped at that point. There were lights shining in her eyes.

"What do you think of that dream of mine Ustaz?" He said.

I answered, "You clear off all your debts and then please go Ustaz. Make do'a for me when you have found what you are looking for there."

After that we embraced (to bid farewell) and ash-Shaheed excused himself as he had to leave for (the state of) Johor next. That was my last meeting with ash-Shaheed, my fellow inmate at Kamunting (Detention Center for persons arrested under the Internal Security Act [ISA]) for 3+ years.

May Allah purchase the selling of ash-Shaheed. Ameeen. الله أكبر

Reuters Report: Every Three Days, 1,000 New Mujahids Join Khilafah ‘Dawlah Islam’

The International News Agency, Reuters which is based in London, Britain released a report on the result of their investigation and their study on the city of Raqqa, Syria, which by de facto has all along been regarded as the capital of Khilafah ‘Dawlah Islamiyyah’ led by Khalifah Ibrahim bin Awwad, Amirul Mu'mineen Abu Bakar al Qurasyi al Husaini al Baghdadi.

There are many interesting things in the report, especially in regard to the excellence of Dawlah Islamiyyah in regulating the wheels of governance which does not only receive praises from their supporters, but also obtains recognition from the parties who hated them.

Using an interview which was conducted from a long distance, one of the activists described how they are able to build the structure similar to that of a modern government in less than a year.

Raqqa Activists: Very Impressive Dawlah Islamiyyah

Let us be honest, they are doing big institutional works. And very impressive,” an activist from Raqqa, who now lives in a border town in Turkey, told Reuters, as quoted from Zaman Alwasl.

Almost none of the service institutions for the community was missed for Dawlah Islamiyyah to manage and operate. From providing electricity and water supply, paying salaries, traffic control and operating bread factories, the police, the schools, the economic institutions of zakat, the courts and masjid, to the trivial matters such as the department consumer complaints.

“Dawlah Islamiyyah control every joint of life in Raqqa, making them impossible to be defeated by the American fighter planes, let alone by the Iraqi forces or Syrian regime,” Reuters reported.

Dawlah Islamiyyah fully controlled the city of Raqqa in around January and February 2014, where later it immediately began to prepare and establish various institutions and public services departments as the basis of the State's supporting structure. All the institutions that had been jammed and stopping operations due to the Syrian Revolution were back operating once again.

“Dawlah Islamiyyah is a state,” a commander of Dawlah Islam told Reuters. “All these awesome big things arise because we rule according to the law of Allah.”

Having the Skilled, Academicians and Specialists in the Rank of its Mujahideen

In managing the government, the task was given to the Mujahids who have specialized expertise coming from foreign countries, such as North Africa and Europe. One example cited by Reuters was the worker who operates and develops the telecommunication in Raqqa, was a youth Mujahid who come from Tunisia with PhD title, who made hijrah to Syria and joined Dawlah Islamiyyah.

The observer's own experts themselves admitted, Dawlah Islamiyyah acts exactly like a state, far from what is called armed militia groups. Members of Dawlah Islamiyyah for military operations are also separated from members who are in charge of managing the government.

The administrative districts were also divided, some are still the same as the Provinces earlier, some others were formed with new names, overseeing new cities. For example, Wilayah al Furat or Euphrates which was newly established, now overseeing the city of Albu Kamal which before was one of the Districts in Deir al Zour, Syria and the city of al Qa’im which before was one of the Districts in the Province of al Anbar, Iraq.

Bread Factories of Dawlah Islamiyyah in Wilayah Hasakah al Barakah

Mujahideen and employees receive salaries from a department that is named the State Financial Institution, operating as with any Ministry of Finance, but is not the same as the Ministry in the countries of Democracy.

They also have housings for officials, taken from the houses of the former Nusairiyyah Army or the Assad regime's Government employees who fled from Raqqa. With salary around $ 400 to $ 600 per month, enough to sustain daily life.

Poor families also receive compensation money. Even those women who are widows receive $ 100 per month for themselves and their every child. Dawlah Islamiyyah has set up a special institution for the distribution of ghonimah treasures, the spoils in battle against the enemy, to be given to orphans.

Prices of daily needs are also looked after so as to be always low. Traders who manipulate the price will get the punishment, will be given a warning and their business enterprises will be closed if the offense is repeated.

That which adds to Dawlah Islamiyyah's richness, is the Islamic economic system that uses zakat. Traders and wealthy families are obliged to fulfill the rights of zakat.

Analysts estimated that Dawlah Islam scooped up much profits, i.e. in the tens of millions of dollars by selling oil from the oil fields it owns.

Recruitment of New Mujahids Abundant From Day to Day

According to Reuters's source in Raqqa, many foreign Muslim scientists, even from China have arrived, joining Dawlah Islamiyyah. They perform a variety of experiments in developing technology, one of them is in terms of producing weapons.

“Scientists and those with high titles came here, joining Dawlah Islamiyyah,” one Arab jihadis told Reuters.

Dawlah Islamiyyah also pays attention to the future generations of Mujahids by establishing many educational institutions. They do not only teach the children of the local people of Syria, but also the children of the Muhajireen who come from 100 countries who keep arriving in Syria.

Also enacted was the compulsory Islamic education which is held in the masjid for the fighters who have just arrived, which according to the people of Raqqa, come in droves flooding the wilayah controlled by Dawlah Islamiyyah, i.e. in bigger numbers since the declaration of the Khilafah.

“We receive at least 1,000 new Mujahids every three days. The houses of the Ansars (locals) are flooded with the Mujahideen. We even ran out of places to accommodate them,” an Arab Mujahid told Reuters.

A Mujahid Ulama' Defends Amirul Mu'mineen Al Baghdadi From Various Accusations

Sheikh Hussain bin Mahmud, one of the Mujahid ulama's and writers at the “Mimbar Tauhdi wal Jihad” website, gave a short commentary on the first Khutbah of Amirul Mu'mineen Abu Bakar Al Baghdadi delivered on the first Friday of Ramadhan 1435 H  in the Great Mosque in the City of Mosul.

Below are the points from the article entitled “Khutbah Al Baghdadi”:

1. He commented on the main theme that becomes the subject of the media mainstream, the ulama's and duats, which they seem to agree upon -either intentionally or unintentionally-, namely “Al Baghdadi forces the people to obey him.”

Sheikh Hussain bin Mahmud said: “By putting aside his caliphate, the fact is that it was Al Baghdadi who liberated Mosul, so automatically he becomes its master and Mosul is under his rule. So what is the problem if he exhorts Muslims to obey him.”

He continued: The title above just now does not bring out the actual fact, because he indeed is following the sunnah of As Siddiq and Al Faruq radhiyallahu’anhuma, because he said 'obey me as long as I am obeying Allah’. So what is their (the accusers) intention by cutting the words of Al Baghdadi and portraying as if he was forcing people to be obedient to him. It is even stranger that this issue arises from among the circles which contends that it compulsory to obey a ruler that wins by the power, be him a mu'meen or a fajir. Whereas Al Baghdadi rules by the shari’ah, carries out jihad against the enemies of Islam, and spreads justice in the whole region under his dominion.”

2. He concluded there were four 'aib' or flaws (parts in the khutbah of Al Baghdadi which are being attempted by the haters to be sought or made to look like a mistake in order to slander him).

His order to obey him as long his is obeying Allah. This is his first ‘aib’, namely following the sunnah of Abu Bakar and Umar in his khutbah, which by the people are projected as a flaw.

On the other hand, when Muhammad Mursi said the same in his khutbah, a lot of people seemed to be blown away, saying ‘Masha Allah la haula wala quwwata illa billah’, with tears flowing due to extreme happiness at hearing such words.

The second ‘aib’; he was wearing black. Indeed, black was the colour of the turban of the Prophet sallallahu’alaihi wasallam during the Fathul Makkah. A colour favoured by some of the ulama's to be worn by the Khalifah during battles. A colour that became the symbol of the Bani Abbas, starting from the Khalifah, governors, khatibs and their qadhis as mentioned by Ibnul Qayyim in "Zaadul Ma’ad."

The third ‘aib’; the watch he was wearing. Talked about by many of the foreign media, which unfortunately was believed just like that by some of the fools. Unfortunately those people do not know that the habit of the foreign media is to not pay attention to those little things unless the object of the media is someone famous, loved or someone who is a public figure (and those media try to distract the people from him – edt.).

Sheikh said: “What if the watch is a ghanimah, which is the best form of possession of the Muslims, and the one wearing it is someone who enrages the enemies of the Dien? Is there any Muslim who disavows the cloths of regalia of Muawiyah Radhiyallahu’anhu when meeting Umar bin Khattab Radhiyallahu’anhu? Al Baghdadi is in a state of war, whereas being boisterous in a war is something beloved by Allah. Therefore, he is entitled to wear the expensive items, colouring his beard black, wearing silk (if he desires). All those are allowed in a state of war, not a part of extravagance and not to be distant from zuhud. We say to those who are not tired of advising “waliyyul amr of the Muslimis” (in quotation marks), how much is the watch worn by the lowest-ranked officers from amongst them??”

The fourth ‘aib’; bringing a hadith in which its sahih status is doubtful.

Sheikh said: “First; the hadith of the merits (of Ramadhan) are not explored in-depth by the ulama's, whether it has strengtheners and it does not contradict the usul shari'ah. Second; the hadith that he brought was indeed doubted in terms of its sahih status like what you guys said, meaning the issue is not a position that is jazm (sure). Third; you guys live under the shade of the Government in which the rulers are not even able to read surah Al Fatihah well and correctly, so who exactly is entitled to your advice which is valuable and full of attention on the nas of the shari'ah?”

(In this regard, Sheikh Hussain bin Mahmud criticizes those who are more critical of the small loophole from al Baghdadi than the ruling regimes who have even more faults)

3. And then Sheikh presents his thoughts on the khutbah. He said: “Al Baghdadi entered calmly into the masjid, ascended the pulpit composedly. Next, he sat down, and then the adzan was called. Next, he made do’a, and then delivered a short khutbah about the merits of saum (fasting) and called on the Muslims to always have taqwa and fulfill this obligation the best possible. And then he encouraged the Muslims to carry out Jihad in this month of victory. Next, then he sat down, and then stood up again to deliver an even shorter khutbah than the first khutbah. Next, he made do'a and descended to lead the prayer.”

He continued: All that he did was clearly a guidance from the Prophet Sallallahu’alaihi wasallam. His khutbah was brief, concise, clear, a khutbah that no other ruler was able to give. I challenge all the Arab rulers to deliver a khutbah like it in the pulpits, not even one of them is able to inspire men to carry out the obligation of jihad fie sabilillah.”

4. The long solat, and the short khutbah indicates his piety and mastered knowledge of the sunnah and the adab of a khutbah. His eloquent words, his mastery of the language, and his composure in this critical condition shows the resilience and firmness of his self. Although appearing to be interrupted and drawing in breath, it is understandable, because he was announcing the return of the Khilafah that has been gone for over 90 years, how heavy and dangerous was the burden that he carries. The burden of the ummah's hope, the dream for a Khilafah which returns after a long time will surely hold his breath.

5. He stood calmly to lead the prayer, in front of a small group of his bodyguards who prayed behind him. Unlike other rulers who came out to pray in front of the camera and behind them were hundreds of fully armed soldiers who did not pray together with the Muslims. Those guards pushed the men onto the back saf (row) and the guards are placed on their (the rulers) left and right side, as well as at their back. Between them and the assemblage were a lot of empty safs, who prayed as if they were in their fathers' house instead of the house of Allah. Whereas, they are safely sitting at their seats of power, not being a fugitive.

6. Some people also tried to distract the general populace from this special khutbah with trivial matters such as the color of the clothes and watch -of which this is the habit of women – which shows that actually those who are hostile towards Dawlah are in the state of a great loss. It also shows that Al Baghdadi really studied everything carefully to lock the tongues of the haters with a flawless appearance.

Abu Turob... may your selling be accepted by Allah... During the battle last night, when the enemy forces tried to enter the place of our ribath, the lions of Allah who were in the middle ribath there right away got up and ran to take their positions even though they were rained down with bullets and bombs at that time.

Allah is All-Knowing of His choices.. The body of Abu Turob fell on top of a part of my body.. Red blood began gushing out of his head in a state of breathing fighting for his lives.. Nothing came out of his mouth except the kalimah of TAWHEED.. I, suffering injury myself on my right hand, could only touched and wiped his body by giving the glad tidings of Paradise.. We were separated when aids arrived.

Arriving at the hospital, I looked for Abu Turob but I could not find him.. Not long after I arrived at the HQ his janaza then arrived.. I kissed his forehead, sad yet in happiness.. sad due to the loss of a friend, happy for his selling was bought by Allah.. Abu Turob always performed the night solat and sunnah fasting..

Before going to Syria he had conducted jihad in Ambon and he had endured patiently 10 years in prison.. A lot of Mujahideen were injured in the last night attack.. From Malaysia, 1 was shaheed and 2 critically injured.. 1 with torn arm.
