A MUST READ!
Yes, the beautiful smile carved on his face would always be missed by us, even though we had only met for a very short period of time.
Abu Muhammad al Indonisi -taqabbalahullah-, was an Indonesian youth who occupied his every moment with doing transactions with Allah, in fact even to the end of his life, seeking the death of shaheed for the sake of pleasing his Lord.
Last Saturday (8 Jumadal Akhirah), Allah destined the Azzam Media to have met with one of the closest friends of Abu Muhammad who had long been treading the path jihad in the Land of Sham. From him we learned about the zuhud nature and bravery of the figure who accomplished the martyrdom bombing attack in the wilayah of Salahuddin not long ago.
Abu Muhammad was one of the Senior Mujahids in Syria. It had been more than one and a half year that he had made sacrifices in the struggle of the Muslims to overthrow the Nusairiyyah government of Bashar Assad who rules with an iron fist.
He had also been a prisoner of the the Sahawat groups in Syria which back-stabbed Dawlah in the early January of 2014, in Idlib, Halab and Lattakia.
The Ikhwah Muhajirin of Dawlah who were taken prisoners in that bloody incident were given two options, either to return to their countries, or to be shot on the spot. Some other Ikhwah were sold to the intelligences of the Crusader West who had been waiting at the borders.
By the mercy and help of Allah, Abu Muhammad along with his Dawlah Mujahideen friends managed to free themselves by breaking the wall of the prison.
The jihad activity of Abu Muhammad then continued in the big battle of conquering the city of Kobane or Aynul Islam from the hand of the Communist PKK Militia.
In Aynul Islam, Abu Muhammad received his first wound in the path of Allah, forcing him to rest for a while from his Jihad activity.
In his second resting time, an ikhwah gave him an advice.
“Akhi, enough, it is better for you to take a break first,” the best friend of Abu Muhammad said to him.
“Oh yeah, there is an Ikhwah from Indonesia who wants to marry his daughter to you. What do you think? Are you ready?”Abu Muhammad responded with a headshake.
“What? Why? Or you want to be married to the people of Ansar? If yes, I can look one for you...” he added. However, Abu Muhammad still refused.
Unexpected to anyone, apparently Abu Muhammad already had other staunchness of the heart, i.e. seeking shahadah. He tried to relieve this feeling of thirst (for shahadah - ed.) by heading off to Iraq.
At that time, we had not known with regards to his intention of becoming a Martyrdom Seeker Warrior. A brother was again offering a life companion for Abu Muhammad, but was again and again turned down by him. One, two, up to three propositions had been turned down.
The determination to meet his Lord had already been solidified. Like a heavenly youth walking on this earth, we were witnessing the figure of a Mujahid who was still in this dunya, but his heart was already hooked with the akhirah.
In the end, we were witnessing the sincerity of Abu Muhammad towards his jihad. Maktab I’lami of the wilayah of Salahuddin released the photo of his last smile before accomplishing his istishhad act launched against the military barrack of the Safawis, showing that he had kept his promise to his Lord.
Nope, it was not the last smile of the fearless Abu Muhammad, because he is now smiling eternally in his Lord's presence, we pray and hope that Allah accepts him, and Allah knows better.
