ISLAM IS THE RELIGION OF THE SWORD NOT PACIFISM


There is a slogan repeated continuously by apologetic “du’āt” when flirting with the West and that is their statement:

“ISLAM IS THE RELIGION OF PEACE,”

And they mean pacifism by the word peace. They have repeated this slogan so much to the extent that some of them alleged that Islam calls to permanent peace with kufr and the kāfirīn. How far is their claim from the truth, for Allah has revealed Islam to be the religion of the sword, and the evidence for this is so profuse that only a zindīq (heretic) would argue otherwise.

‘Alī Ibn Abī Tālib (radiyallāhu ‘anh) said,

“Allah’s Messenger (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was sent with four swords: a sword for the mushrikīn,

{AND WHEN THE SACRED MONTHS HAVE PASSED, THEN KILL THE MUSHRIKĪN WHEREVER YOU FIND THEM}

[At-Tawbah: 5]

A sword for Ahlul-Kitāb,

{FIGHT THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN ALLAH OR IN THE LAST DAY AND WHO DO NOT CONSIDER UNLAWFUL WHAT ALLAH AND HIS MESSENGER HAVE MADE UNLAWFUL AND WHO DO NOT ADOPT THE RELIGION OF TRUTH FROM THOSE WHO WERE GIVEN THE BOOK – [FIGHT THEM] UNTIL THEY GIVE THE JIZYAH WILLINGLY WHILE THEY ARE HUMBLED}

[At-Tawbah: 29]

A sword for the munāfiqīn,

{O PROPHET, FIGHT AGAINST THE KUFFĀR AND THE MUNĀFIQĪN}

[At-Tawbah: 73]

And a sword for the bughāt (rebellious aggressors),

{THEN FIGHT AGAINST THE GROUP THAT COMMITS BAGHY (AGGRESSION) UNTIL IT RETURNS TO THE ORDINANCE OF ALLAH}

[Al-Hujurāt: 9]

[Tafsīr Ibn Kathīr]

He also revealed the sword against the apostates,

{O YOU WHO HAVE BELIEVED, WHOEVER OF YOU SHOULD REVERT FROM HIS RELIGION – ALLAH WILL BRING FORTH A PEOPLE HE WILL LOVE AND WHO WILL LOVE HIM [WHO ARE] HUMBLE TOWARD THE BELIEVERS, MIGHTY AGAINST THE DISBELIEVERS; THEY STRIVE IN THE CAUSE OF ALLAH AND DO NOT FEAR THE BLAME OF A CRITIC}

[Al-Mā’idah: 54]

This verse is a fundamental basis for the obligation to fight against the apostate parties. At-Tabarī reported in his tafsīr that amongst the Salaf, ‘Alī Ibn Abī Tālib, Qatādah, al-Hasan al-Basrī, ad-Dahhāk, and Ibn Jurayj said this verse encompassed Abū Bakr (Allah’s sword against apostasy), his companions (radiyallāhu ‘anhum), and their war against the apostates – the followers of Musaylamah al-Kadhdhāb and those who resisted the obligation of zakāh.

Allah (ta’ālā) also sent down iron alongside the revelation to consolidate His religion by the sword forged with iron. He (ta’ālā) said,

{WE HAVE SENT OUR MESSENGERS WITH CLEAR EVIDENCES AND SENT DOWN WITH THEM THE SCRIPTURE AND THE BALANCE THAT THE PEOPLE MAY MAINTAIN [THEIR AFFAIRS] IN JUSTICE. AND WE SENT DOWN IRON, WHEREIN IS GREAT MILITARY MIGHT AND BENEFITS FOR THE PEOPLE, AND SO THAT ALLAH MAY MAKE EVIDENT THOSE BELIEVING IN THE UNSEEN WHO SUPPORT HIM AND HIS MESSENGERS. INDEED, ALLAH IS POWERFUL AND EXALTED IN MIGHT}

[Al-Hadīd: 25]

Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullāh) said,

“THE BASIS OF THE RELIGION IS A GUIDING BOOK AND SUPPORTING SWORD”

[MAJMŪ’ AL-FATĀWĀ]

Allah (ta’ālā) also described what should be struck with the sword,

{REMEMBER WHEN YOUR LORD REVEALED TO THE ANGELS, “I AM WITH YOU, SO STRENGTHEN THOSE WHO HAVE BELIEVED. I WILL CAST TERROR INTO THE HEARTS OF THOSE WHO DISBELIEVED, SO STRIKE [THEM] UPON THE NECKS AND STRIKE FROM THEM EVERY FINGERTIP”}

[Al-Anfāl: 12]

He (ta’ālā) also said,

{SO WHEN YOU MEET THOSE WHO DISBELIEVE, STRIKE THEIR NECKS UNTIL, WHEN YOU HAVE INFLICTED SLAUGHTER UPON THEM, THEN SECURE THEIR BONDS, AND EITHER [CONFER] FAVOR AFTERWARDS OR RANSOM [THEM] UNTIL THE WAR LAYS DOWN ITS BURDENS}

[Muhammad: 4]

HIS MESSENGER (SALLALLĀHU ‘ALAYHI WA SALLAM) ALSO DESCRIBED THE SWORD AS THE SALVATION FROM EVIL AND FITNAH. HE (SALLALLĀHU ‘ALAYHI WA SALLAM) ALSO DESCRIBED THE SWORD AS BEING THE KEY TO JANNAH

[Reported by Ibn Abī Shaybah on the authority of Abū Mūsā]

He also declared that his worldly provision was placed for him in the shade of his spear and that the best livelihood for the Muslim in the future is what he takes with his sword from the kāfir enemy.

So how can the zanādiqah (heretics) or even those who blindly follow them – Bush, Obama, and Kerry – obstinately claim that “Islam is a religion of peace,” meaning pacifism?

One of the biggest shubuhāt propagated by the heretics is the linguistic root for the word Islam. They claim it comes from the word Salam (peace), when in actuality it comes from words meaning submission and sincerity sharing the same consonant root.

Shaykhul-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullāh) said:

“I MENTIONED BEFORE IN PREVIOUSLY DISCUSSED PRINCIPLES THAT ISLAM – THE RELIGION OF ALLAH WITH WHICH HE REVEALED HIS BOOKS AND SENT HIS MESSENGERS – IS THAT THE SLAVE YUSLIM (SUBMITS) TO ALLAH, THE LORD OF THE CREATION, AND THUS, HE YASTASLIM (SUBMITS) TO ALLAH ALONE WITHOUT GIVING HIM PARTNERS AND THAT HE BE SĀLIM (PURELY) FOR HIM, IN THAT HE WORSHIPS HIM WHILE NOT WORSHIPPING OTHER THAN HIM, AS IS MADE CLEAR BY THE BEST WORD AND THE HEAD OF ISLAM LĀ ILĀHA ILLALLĀH. AND IT HAS TWO OPPOSITES: KIBR AND SHIRK. FOR THIS REASON, IT WAS REPORTED THAT NŪH (‘ALAYHIS-SALĀM) ORDERED HIS CHILDREN WITH LĀ ILĀHA ILLALLĀH AND SUBHĀNALLĀH AND FORBADE THEM FROM KIBR AND SHIRK

[Reported by Imām Ahmad on the authority of ‘Abdullāh Ibn ‘Amr]

AS IN A HADITH I MENTIONED ELSEWHERE. INDEED, THE ONE WHO ABSTAINS DUE TO ARROGANCE FROM WORSHIPPING ALLAH DOES NOT WORSHIP HIM, SO HE IS NOT MUSTASLIM (SUBMITTING) TO HIM, AND HE WHO WORSHIPS HIM AND WORSHIPS OTHERS WITH HIM IS A MUSHRIK TOWARDS HIM, SO HE IS NOT SĀLIM FOR HIM, RATHER HE HAS SHIRK TOWARDS HIM. THE WORD ISLAM INCLUDES THE TWO MEANINGS, ISTISLĀM (SUBMISSION) AND SALĀMAH WHICH IS SINCERITY. AND IT IS KNOWN THAT ALL THE MESSENGERS WERE SENT WITH THE GENERAL ISLAM CONSISTING OF THIS”

[Al-Īmān al-Awsat]

He (rahimahullāh) also said:

“The word ‘Islam’ can be used in two ways, transitively, as in His statement,

{AND WHO IS BETTER IN RELIGION THAN ONE WHO ASLAMA (SUBMITS) HIMSELF TO ALLAH WHILE BEING A DOER OF GOOD}

[An- Nisā’: 125]

And His statement,

{I HAVE ASLAMTU (SUBMITTED) MYSELF TO ALLAH, AND SO HAVE THOSE WHO FOLLOW ME. AND SAY TO THOSE WHO WERE GIVEN THE SCRIPTURE AND TO THE UNLEARNED, “HAVE YOU ASLAMTUM (SUBMITTED)?” AND IF THEY ASLAMŪ (SUBMIT), THEY ARE RIGHTLY GUIDED; BUT IF THEY TURN AWAY – THEN UPON YOU IS ONLY THE DUTY OF NOTIFICATION. AND ALLAH IS SEEING OF THE SERVANTS}

[Āl ‘Imrān: 20]

And his statement (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in the du’ā’ before sleep,

‘I ASLAMTU (HAVE SUBMITTED) MYSELF TO YOU’

[Reported by al-Bukhārī and Muslim on the authority of al-Barā’ Ibn ‘Āzib]

It is also used intransitively, as in His statement,

{WHEN HIS LORD SAID TO HIM, ASLIM (SUBMIT), HE SAID “I ASLAMTU (HAVE SUBMITTED) TO THE LORD OF THE WORLDS”}

[Al-Baqarah: 131]

And it encompasses two meanings, the first is obedience and submission; the second is dedicating that sincerely to Him alone, as in His statement,

{ALLAH PRESENTS AN EXAMPLE: A SLAVE OWNED BY QUARRELING PARTNERS AND ANOTHER SALAM (PURELY) FOR ONE MAN – ARE THEY EQUAL IN COMPARISON? PRAISE BE TO ALLAH! BUT MOST OF THEM DO NOT KNOW}

[Az-Zumar: 29]

Its incarnation is the statement lā ilāha illallāh”

[Al-Īmān al-Awsat]

He (rahimahullāh) also said:

“Rather Islam is istislām (submission) to Allah alone. The word Islam entails istislām and dedicating such sincerely to Allah. More than one scholar has mentioned this including the specialists in Arabic such as Abū Bakr Ibn al- Anbārī and others. Some of the commentators have considered these two meanings to be two different interpretations, as a group of them including al-Baghawī said,

‘THE MUSLIM IS THE MUSTASLIM (SUBMITTER) TO ALLAH. IT HAS ALSO BEEN SAID HE IS THE MUKHLIS (SINCERE ONE).’ THE REALITY IS THAT THE MUSLIM IS HE WHO GATHERS BOTH MEANINGS IN HIMSELF, FOR WHOEVER DOES NOT YASTASLIM (SUBMIT) TO HIM, IS NOT A MUSLIM, AND WHOEVER ISTASLAM (SUBMITTED) TO OTHER THAN HIM AS HE DOES FOR HIM, IS NOT A MUSLIM. WHOEVER ISTASLAM (SUBMITTED) TO HIM ALONE IS A MUSLIM,

As in the Qur’ān,

{YES, WHOEVER ASLAMA (SUBMITS) HIS FACE TO ALLAH WHILE BEING A DOER OF GOOD WILL HAVE HIS REWARD WITH HIS LORD. AND NO FEAR WILL THERE BE CONCERNING THEM, NOR WILL THEY GRIEVE}

[Al-Baqarah: 112]

[An-Nubūwāt]

It is clear then that salām (peace) is not the basis of the word Islam, although it shares the same consonant root (s-l-m) and is one of the outcomes of the religion’s sword, as the sword will continue to be drawn, raised, and swung until ‘Īsā (Jesus – ‘alayhis-salām) kills the Dajjāl (the Antichrist) and abolishes the jizyah. Thereafter, kufr and its tyranny will be destroyed; Islam and its justice will prevail on the entire Earth.

“THEN, IT WILL BE SAID TO THE EARTH, LET YOUR FRUITS GROW AND YIELD YOUR BLESSINGS. ON THAT DAY, A GROUP WILL EAT FROM A SINGLE POMEGRANATE AND TAKE SHADE UNDER ITS BOWL-SHAPED PEEL. MILK WILL BE BLESSED SO MUCH SO THAT THE YOUNG FEMALE CAMEL WILL SUFFICE A VERY LARGE GROUP OF PEOPLE, AND A YOUNG FEMALE COW WILL SUFFICE A TRIBE OF PEOPLE, AND A YOUNG FEMALE SHEEP WILL SUFFICE A CLAN OF PEOPLE”

[Reported by Muslim on the authority of an-Nawwās Ibn Sam’ān]

“THE SKY WILL BE PERMITTED TO POUR ITS RAIN AND THE LAND TO YIELD ITS PLANTS, SO EVEN IF YOU WERE TO PLANT A SEED ON A STONE, IT WOULD SPRING. THERE WILL BE NO RIVALRIES, NO ENVY, NO HATRED, TO THE POINT THAT A MAN WILL PASS BY A LION YET IT WON’T HARM HIM, AND STEP ON A SNAKE YET IT WON’T HARM HIM”

[Reported by ad-Diyā’ and ad-Daylamī on the authority of Abū Hurayrah]

“AND THE VENOM OF EVERY VENOMOUS CREATURE WILL BE REMOVED, TO THE POINT THAT A NEWBORN BOY WILL PLACE HIS HAND IN THE MOUTH OF A SNAKE AND IT WILL NOT HARM HIM. A NEWBORN GIRL WILL MAKE A LION FLEE AND IT WILL NOT HARM HER. THE WOLF WILL BE AMONGST SHEEP LIKE THEIR GUARD DOG. THE EARTH WILL BE FILLED WITH PEACE JUST AS A JAR IS FILLED WITH WATER. THE WORD WILL BE ONE – NO ONE WILL BE WORSHIPPED BUT ALLAH. AND WAR WILL LAY DOWN ITS BURDENS”

[Reported by Ibn Mājah on the authority of Abū Ummah]

THEREAFTER, SWORDS WILL REST FROM WAR ONLY TO BE USED AS SICKLES

[Reported by Imām Ahmad on the authority of Abū Hurayrah]

But until then, parties of kāfirīn will continue to be struck down by the unsheathed sword of Islam – except for those who enter into īmān (Islamic faith) or amān – for there will always be a party of Muslims fighting parties of kāfirīn until there is no more fitnah and the religion is completely for Allah alone.

SISTERS MAKING HIJRA TO AD-DAWLAH


[Just to be clear, I will not get into arguments with anyone about whether it is allowed for sisters to make Hijrah without mahram (you can advise me privately, no problem, but don’t expect an answer). This part of the post is directed at those sisters who have decided to make Hijrah to al-Dawlah without a mahram but who don’t know what to expect after they land in Turkey. If I am making this advice available, it DOESN’T mean that I am encouraging sisters to make the trip without a mahram. Allahu-al- Musta’ān.]

I discussed this matter with a Moroccan brother here. I asked for his permission to post what he told me and Al-HamdulilLah, he accepted. So, please make du’ā for him. The brother made Hijrah without his family. Afterwards, his wife and kids came over. He related to me their trip and I will try my best to give a good account of his advice here, bi-idhnilLah.

SO, ASSUMING YOU’RE A SISTER WHO’S LANDED IN AN AIRPORT IN TURKEY, WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

Chances are that your ticket was booked for Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul. You should know that there are two airports in Istanbul, but the one most people go through is Ataturk (I forgot the name of the other one. Please google it).

As a sister, travelling alone, and with luggage, it is not advisable for you to travel through Turkey by bus/coach because of security concerns. Doing so would involve leaving the airport, taking the metro or taxi to the coach station and finding the place where you would be buying your ticket. I wouldn’t advise this. In fact I would strongly discourage it (and so did the brother). What the brother advises to do is to travel by plane through Turkey.

In Istanbul if you book a hotel as you must or passport control in Istanbul Ataturk Airport may ask your accommodation details.

You can book a flight from Ataturk (Istanbul) airport to Şanlıurfa by Turkish Airways, link as follows:

SISTERS WHO MAKING HIJRAH MUST NOT TRAVEL BY BUS TO SANLIURFA RATHER CATCH A FLIGHT

I WILL TRY TO PUT INTO STEPS WHAT YOU SHOULD DO AND WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT, IN SHĀ ALLAH:

Have your acquaintance inside Dawlah provide you with the telephone numbers of the Office of Borders of Dawlah (called “Madrassat al-Hudūd”) before you depart to Turkey.

This is important since you don’t want to be left alone stranded in Turkey if ever you lose contact with your acquaintance. You would most probably be provided with more than one number, at least two. Write them down on a piece of paper which you should keep somewhere safe. Don’t label them, though (or better, put a fake label). Also save them on your phone (not under a moniker such as “Osama bin Laden”, though, okay? Promise? Good).

Learn some conversational Turkish. E.g. how to ask for a taxi, how to explain that you’re in a group, how to ask to buy a SIM card, etc. Turkish will be helpful even after you cross into Dawlah because there are a lot of Turkish brothers and sisters who have made Hijrah.
After you land in Turkey…

Make sure you have a phone with you (duh… Please don’t attempt to make Hijrah if your parents
Confiscated your phone).

It’s better if you have an Android smartphone which is unlocked. Buy a SIM card at the airport, but don’t buy any SIM card, buy a Turk cell SIM card. Make sure you buy enough minutes for calls (international calls also wouldn’t hurt) and enough data for internet (1 GB should be okay, in shā Allah).

If you’re traveling with a group of sisters, make sure that each one of you has a phone with a Turk cell SIM card.

Call the numbers, let them know that you’re in Turkey and that you want to make Hijrah to al-Dawlah. They will provide you with instructions. So follow the instructions they will give you.

Let them know how many sisters are traveling and also their landing times, etc. If you land at different times, no need to wait for the other sisters in Istanbul airport.

Don’t form groups and draw attention to yourselves. (There aren’t many niqābis in a Turkish airport.) If you want to wait for each other, avoid meeting physically, communicate by internet after you have bought your SIM cards.

Book your ticket to wherever they instructed you to. If you’re traveling with a group of sisters, e.g. more than 3, the brother advises NOT to book tickets on the same plane.

Divide yourselves into groups of 2 (and one group of 3 if you’re in odd numbers) and book tickets at different times. Do not travel as a pack on a single plane.

When you land in the airport of your destination, be chill to the airport officers. You’re just tourists, etc. Call the numbers again and let them know you’ve arrived where they want you to be. They will (most probably) tell you to go to a hotel. Make sure you take a taxi which is a real taxi, with a “Taxi” sign on it. Not just a private car offering a ride. Ask how much beforehand, in case they try to rip you off.

If there’s no taxi (maybe if it’s late at night), call the numbers (“the numbers” mean Dawlah) and ask them to send you someone trustworthy. Ask for the name of the one who will pick you up and don’t get into any other car except that person’s.

Be careful because at the airport there might be many people harassing you. It will be somewhat obvious what your agenda is. It’s just that they cannot prove that you’re making Hijrah to al-Dawlah. People there have seen hundreds like you making the leap. They will suggest to take you to the border or whatever. Just refuse, ignore, don’t get into arguments and don’t draw attention to yourself.

Once you’re at the hotel, follow the instructions you’ve been given. If you were told that you will have to wait for a call, then you will have to wait for a call (it’s simple. Hear. And obey).

Don’t be worried if you have to wait for a day or two. Have sabr. Don’t get impatient. Make dhikr and du’ā that Allah makes your Hijrah successful. Have your phone fully charged, on loud settings, handy and nearby.

If ever you don’t pick up the first time they call, and you notice a missed-call, then, don’t worry just call back. That should be your ride (a taxi driver). Don’t worry if you see that he’s clean-shaven and/or smoking.

Don’t move to other locations. If you absolutely must, then let Dawlah know of your movements. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS (how many times do I have to repeat this?) and don’t get paranoid if they’re running late.

Once you’ve established contact with al-Dawlah, they will not let you down, bi-idhnilLah. The taxi will take you to a house.

You will have to pay around 50 USD (US Dollars). That’s the average rate for this trip, I guess. Don’t get scared if you notice that the roads are not very well asphalted or that the place seems kind of drab (especially at nighttime).

The house you will be taken to would be the house of a sympathizer of Dawlah. If Allah wills, you might meet other ladies there, waiting to cross like you, in a room reserved for ladies only. But don’t get scared if you’re alone. Food and drinks will be provided.

The Moroccan brother said that the room even has a key and you can even lock yourself inside, if you wish to have extra privacy, etc.

They will instruct you to wait until nighttime. Crossing the border is usually done at night or at dawn. Don’t get frustrated if they tell you to get prepared to cross immediately only to tell you a few minutes afterwards that you need to wait some more to cross. It’s because they’re monitoring the Turkish army border patrols.

Before crossing, they will tell you to leave your luggage behind since you won’t be able to carry such a heavy load. So you must, leave your “Suitcase” behind. Take all valuables with you in a backpack or a bag which is easy to carry.

The place where you be asked to leave your luggage is the house of Dawlah sympathizers. They are not mujahidin. And, as disgusting as it might sound, they will go through your stuff and pick and choose what they find interesting. Basically, they might steal your stuff. So, don’t leave valuables behind. Pack like I instructed you to, in shā Allah and you will be fine. However expect them to have gone through your stuff. I guess it’s a price we all have to pay to be able to cross.

Once it’s clear to cross, you will have to move fast. Wear your most comfortable sneakers ever. You might have to do some running (most probably) If you have kids with you, don’t worry, there will be brothers crossing along with you and they will help you, in shā Allah.

The brother advises to take an extra abaya with you because you will need to crawl under barbed wire when you will actually cross the border. If your clothes get ripped, you will always have one in hand to cover your ‘awrah. You will, most probably, cross directly into Dawlah territory. Be sure to take a breath of fresh air, ‘because that’s how sharī’ah feels like. (LoL you will probably be out of breath and panting, but I’ll allow you.) Transportation will take you to a place they call “madhāfah”.

There’s madhāfah for men and madhāfah for women. You will be taken to the ladies’ one, in shā Allah. If you’re married, and your husband crossed before you and is still undergoing training, this is where you will stay until he finishes training and is able to meet you.

Request that your luggage be brought to you at the women’s madhāfah since all luggage is normally taken to the men’s madhāfah and then to Office of Borders in al-Raqqah, if nobody requests them.

If you’re not married, as the brother explained, you will be taken to al-Raqqah to a place where single sisters stay (I don’t know the name of the place). If you want to get married, you send in a request. If you don’t want to get married, I don’t think anyone can force you to. But you will always have a place to stay in Dawlah, Al-HamdulilLah.

I ask Allah to give you a safe trip to the land of sharī’ah.

Please don’t hold it against me if my advice was wrong, if it was harmful to you, if it got you in trouble or caught by authorities. I am also sorry if procedures change and things events don’t turn out as I described here. I am only trying my best, and trying my best is the best I can do. Above all, don’t hold it against me on Yawm al-Qiyāmah. Please forgive me.

Don’t delay Hijrah more than you need to. If you’re inclined to delay it, remember that you might not even live long enough to see the next day. Remember death often.

When you are in an airport, make sure to avoid the following so you don’t seem suspicious:

OPERATIVES ARE INSTRUCTED TO AVOID LOOKING NERVOUS. SHAKING HANDS, RAPID BREATHING, COLD SWEATS, AND LACK OF EYE CONTACT CAN ALL BE DETECTED AS NERVOUS BEHAVIOR BY TRAINED SECURITY OFFICIALS.

A SISTERS HIJRAH STORY TO AD DAWLAH

My Hijrah Story

Salam alaykum all praise is for Allah Lords of the world.

So many people ask me about my Hijrah story so I thought I would share it to show you all that no matter what kuffar do to try stop you making Hijrah if Allah writes for you to come nothing can stop you. So the night before I was leaving I try to spend as much time with my family as I could wallahi I remember looking at my mums face and it was so hard for me not to cry as I knew I would be leaving her and my dad soon, I played with my younger siblings and told them I love them and my heart was breaking knowing I won’t see them grow up but kheir I knew it was for the best. Due to the fact I was sacrificing the dearest people to me fisibillah and to get the best in akirah.

So when I arrived in T I met with two other sisters Umm Laden and Umm Musab both had children under 5. So me and the sister’s went to the boarder together but yani there was some complications because we got caught by the T military. We tried to act like Syrians but they made us lift our niqaab up and they knew we weren’t Syrians. So wallahi I was so scared and it was around 10 at night. So the T military men took us to their base and you were questioning us whether we were with “Daesha” we completely denied all claims and said we were aid workers. Couple hours passed and it was fajr time and wallahi when I was in sujood I made so much dua for Allah to put a barrier between us and them, also I kept saying hasbnu allah wa nimal wakeel.

However in the morning they booked us all tickets back to our country I seriously thought we was khalas , so me and the sisters were just annoyed cause we were being sent back to darl kufr. Our tickets were booked for the next day so they took us to prison and wallahi may Allah give Umm Musab and Umm Laden the highest Jannah they both have children under 5 Umm laden had 3 kids and Umm Musab 2 . So Dawlah found out about our predicament and sent us a lawyer who worked some magic and after a looooong tiring week in prison they let us go Alhamdulillah.

So we were allowed to go T but we went crossing the border the normal way and me and Umm Musab and Umm Laden were all so happy cause we crossed the border but then something was a bit strange because there was a big Syrian flag and I thought oh no something is not right cause I failed to see the black flag ANYWHERE. So me and my dear sisters and the kids were walking and this guy comes to us and makes us go into a building and then I realized I was with fsa and Jabhat, so then I start to get worried like mate they knew we were with Dawlah due to how we dressed .

So the fsa starts to speak Arabic to me who’s Arabic is sooo bad all I understood was zawjati Omar shisihani and something about how we think his murtad and something about Dawlah Islamiyah and I then knew we were in a real sticky situation, Umm Laden messages her husband saying we were with fsa and he calls us and tells his wife to hand the phone to the fsa guy and then they start exchanging words and then fsa guy looked annoyed and so sends us into a another room. So in this room there was like beds and I had like a little heart attack cause I thought we were done for and Alhamdulillah it was dhuhur time and I made soooo much dua for Allah to put a barrier between us and them. After sometime the man returned and spoke to us and I started crying and to my surprise he came back with a change of heart and was like he will let us go but we had to go back into turkey cause Dawlah area was far from the location we was at and he told me not to cry.

Then we went outside and there was a car outside for us but I still was very paranoid, so we went in the car and inside was the man who had interrogated me Umm Laden and Umm Musab about whether we was in Dawlah and if were going jihad. Wallahi I was shocked. So this guy drives me Umm Laden and Umm Musab and the kids for 3hrs to another boarder controlled by Dawlah and we didn’t even have to run across the border wallahi they opened the Boarder gates for us and we entered Ad Dawlah Islamiyah by the will of Allah.

It was one tiring long journey into Ad Dawlah but wallahi when you have sabr and have tawwkul Allah swt will never forsake you. So people have no excuse not to make Hijrah look at Umm Laden and Umm Musab both mothers and they made Hijrah even though there was so much obstacles in the way. Allah helps those who put their trust in him wallahi these people tried their best to stop us and humiliate us but Allah honored us truly and verily with every hardship was ease and that ease was putting my feet on to the dust of sham and having the fresh breeze of Darl Jihad.

THE TWIN HALVES OF THE MUHAJIRIN


In the name of Allah who revealed an āyah about the muhājirāt and preserved it in the clear-cut revelation until the establishment of the Hour. May blessings and peace be upon the Imām of the mujāhidīn and the beloved of the Ansār and Muhājirīn as well as his family, companions, and good followers until the Day of Recompense. As for what follows:

Because hijrāh for Allah’s cause is a great matter, Allah revealed about it,

{AND THE FIRST FORERUNNERS AMONG THE MUHĀJIRĪN AND THE ANSĀR AND THOSE WHO FOLLOWED THEM WITH GOOD CONDUCT – ALLAH IS PLEASED WITH THEM AND THEY ARE PLEASED WITH HIM, AND HE HAS PREPARED FOR THEM GARDENS BENEATH WHICH RIVERS FLOW, WHEREIN THEY WILL ABIDE FOREVER. THAT IS THE GREAT SUCCESS}

[At-Tawbah: 100]

Similarly, if not for the greatness of hijrah, the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would not have given it as an example in the hadīth “actions are according to intentions,” as he said, “So whoever’s hijrah is to Allah and His Messenger, then his hijrah is to Allah and His Messenger.” Hijrah from Makkah to al-Madīnah also represented a great event and important turning point in the prophetic mission, as it contained many great lessons. Rather, it was the greatest event in the history of Islam, and for this reason it was used as the basis for the Islamic calendar.

Hijrah for Allah’s cause has many purposes, amongst them being to escape tribulations, fearing that one may fall into them and that his religion may be affected by them. Also, getting used to seeing kufr and shirk without changing it could lead to death of the heart, to the point that the person does not recognize Islam and its people. Also, from amongst the purposes of hijrah is to join the sides of the Muslims, support them, strengthen their forces, and wage jihād against the enemies of Allah and their enemies.

Hijrah, as it was defined by Ibn Qudāmah is

“TO LEAVE DĀRUL-KUFR FOR DĀRUL-ISLĀM”

[Al-Mughnī]

Sa’d Ibn ‘Atīq (rahimahullāh) said,

“IT IS MIGRATING FROM THE PLACES OF SHIRK AND SIN TO THE LAND OF ISLAM AND OBEDIENCE”

[Ad-Durar as-Saniyyah]

So dārul- Islām is the place ruled by Muslims, where the Islamic laws are executed, where authority is for the Muslims, even if the majority of its population are kuffār from ahlul-dhimmah. As for dārul-kufr, then it is the place ruled by kuffār, where the laws of kufr are executed, where authority is for the kuffār, even if the majority of the population are Muslims.

As for the ruling on hijrah from dārul-kufr to dārul-Islām, then it is obligatory.

Allah (ta’ālā) said,

{INDEED, THOSE WHOM THE ANGELS TAKE [IN DEATH] WHILE WRONGING THEMSELVES – [THE ANGELS] WILL SAY, “IN WHAT [CONDITION] WERE YOU?” THEY WILL SAY, “WE WERE OPPRESSED IN THE LAND.” THE ANGELS WILL SAY, “WAS NOT THE EARTH OF ALLAH SPACIOUS [ENOUGH] FOR YOU TO EMIGRATE THEREIN?” FOR THOSE, THEIR REFUGE IS HELL – AND EVIL IT IS AS A DESTINATION}

[An-Nisā’: 97]

Ibn Kathīr (rahimahullāh) said, “The āyah indicates the general obligation of hijrah. So everyone who lives amongst the mushrikīn while being able to perform hijrah and not being able to establish his religion, then he is wronging himself and committing sin. This is in accordance with ijmā’.

Abū Dāwūd reported through his isnād on the authority of Samurah Ibn Jundub (radiyallāhu ‘anhumā) that Rasūlullāh (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said,

‘WHOEVER GATHERS AND LIVES WITH THE MUSHRIK, THEN HE IS LIKE HIM.’”

Also, if there were no evidences for the obligation of hijrah except the following ahādīth of the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam),

“HIJRAH WILL NOT CEASE AS LONG AS THERE IS REPENTANCE, AND REPENTANCE WILL NOT CEASE UNTIL THE SUN RISES FROM THE WEST”

[Reported by Abū Dāwūd]

“HIJRAH WILL NOT CEASE AS LONG AS THERE IS JIHĀD”

[Reported by Imām Ahmad]

“I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY MUSLIM WHO RESIDES AMONGST THE MUSHRIKĪN”

[Reported by Abū Dāwūd and at- Tirmidhī]

And

“HIJRAH WILL NOT CEASE AS LONG AS THE ENEMY IS FOUGHT”

[Reported by Imām Ahmad and an-Nasā’ī]

it would suffice us to refute the doubts of the doubters and the rumors of the fear mongers.

This ruling is an obligation upon women just as it is upon men, for Allah (ta’ālā), when excluding those incapable of performing hijrah, He excluded the incapable women just as He excluded the incapable men.

Allah (ta’ālā) said,

{EXCEPT FOR THE OPPRESSED AMONG MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN WHO CANNOT DEVISE A PLAN NOR ARE THEY DIRECTED TO A WAY – FOR THOSE IT IS EXPECTED THAT ALLAH WILL PARDON THEM, AND ALLAH IS EVER PARDONING AND FORGIVING}

[An- Nisā’: 98-99]

The Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) has also said,

“WOMEN ARE THE TWIN HALVES OF MEN”

[Reported by Abū Dāwūd, at- Tirmidhī, and Ibn Mājah]

And today, after the Muslims established a state that rules by the Qur’ān and the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam), which expanded to wide territories larger than the areas of some of the states of Sykes and Picot, and whose blessed soldiers restored the promised khilāfah by the edge of the sword not through pacifism, the rate of hijrah magnified and now every day there are not only muhājirīn to the land of Islam but also muhājirāt who were sick of living amongst kufr and its people. As soon as the sun of their awaited state rose, they rushed to it alone and in groups from the eastern and western extents of the Earth. Their colors and tongues are different, but their hearts are united upon “there is no god but Allah.” I remember the day I performed hijrah, I was the only Arab woman amongst the muhājirah sisters during that trip.

If speaking about the muhājirīn is amazing, then speaking about their twin halves the muhājirāt is even more amazing! How many stories have I heard which I would not have believed if not for hearing them directly from the mouths of those sisters involved or seeing these sisters with my own eyes; otherwise, I would have thought them the product of imagination or something impossible!

The opponents often repeat that those who perform hijrah to the Islamic State belong to a marginalized class in their former lands, living in difficult conditions between unemployment, poverty, family problems, and psychological disorders. But I saw something contrary! I saw sisters who divorced the Dunyā and came to their Lord, striving. I saw sisters who abstained from a life of luxury and abundant wealth. I saw sisters who abandoned a beautiful home and luxurious car, and ran for the cause of their Lord, as if they were saying,

{“MY LORD, BUILD FOR ME NEAR YOU A HOUSE IN JANNAH”}

[At-Tahrīm: 11]

I consider them as such, and Allah is their judge!

They are as fragile as glass bottles but their souls are those of men with ambitions almost hugging the heavens. Yes, these are the muwahhidah muhājirah sisters who performed hijrah to the lands of the Islamic State. They inherited this ambition from the Mother of the Believers Sawdah Bint Zam’ah (radiyallāhu ‘anhā), the wife of their Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam). She was the one who performed hijrah to Ethiopia and al-Madīnah, leaving Makkah despite its virtue. And eleven women from Quraysh as well as seven women from other tribes performed hijrah from Makkah to Ethiopia on the second hijrah there!

The stories of the hijrah of the muwahhidāt that have been narrated to me are almost never free of hardship and tribulations. All of them start with the sister resolving to depart for her Lord’s cause. The first obstacle the muhājirah faces is the family. And what can make you know what the family is! In most of the cases, the families are from the laymen Muslims, and with these people, merely thinking about proposing the subject of hijrah to them is like butting a rock with your head. Yes, the sister is their honor and it is their right to fear for her, but why do they not fear for their honor when the sister wants to travel to Paris or London to specialize in some worldly field of knowledge? Rather, you see them hailing this, supporting it, and being proud of it! But if the direction is towards the Islamic State, then suddenly they all become fuqahā’, saying this is permissible and that is not permissible. By Allah, I know of a sister who left in the accompaniment of her husband for hijrah and was surprised to be stopped by the soldiers of the tāghūt in the airport after her parents had sent a notice to the police! This is a story of a woman with a mahram, so what of a woman without a mahram?

Here I want to say with the loudest voice to the sick-hearted who have slandered the honor of the chaste sisters, a woman’s hijrah from dārul- kufr is obligatory whether or not she has a mahram, if she is able to find a relatively safe way and fears Allah regarding herself. She should not wait for anyone but should escape with her religion and reach the land where Islam and its people are honored. Whoever doubts this, then let him review the books of fiqh and opinions of the imāms so that he may inform us concerning who this noble āyah was revealed:

{O YOU WHO HAVE BELIEVED, WHEN THE BELIEVING WOMEN COME TO YOU AS MUHĀJIRĀT, THEN TEST THEM [MEANING, TEST THEIR FAITH]. ALLAH IS MOST KNOWING AS TO THEIR FAITH. AND IF YOU KNOW THEM TO BE BELIEVERS, THEN DO NOT RETURN THEM TO THE KUFFĀR}

[Al-Mumtahinah: 10]

Also, these shouters do not agree with us on a principle matter and that is the establishment of an Islamic state fulfilling the conditions and characteristics for its legitimacy. So how can they debate us on a secondary issue – the ruling of a woman’s hijrah without a mahram from dārul-kufr to dārul-Islām? We can only say Allah is sufficient for us and the best disposer of affairs against every person who insinuates slander of a muhājirah even if with a single letter. And all adversaries will be gathered in front of Allah.

The muhājirah sister thereby passes over the obstacle of family through ways and measures that Allah (subhānah) facilitates and then goes through the hardship of a long journey that is also exciting and full of memories. While we would discuss the stories of hijrah, we would all agree upon a feeling that overtakes every muhājirah during her journey. It is as if we leave from darkness to light, from caves of darkness to a welcoming green land. Rather, by Allah, it is as if we are resurrected, from death to life! Yes, there is fear and anxiety, because the hypocrites lurk in ambush for the muwahhidīn, but who is it that keeps people firm? Who keeps them secure? Who sends tranquility down upon His weak slaves? It is Allah, the King of kings!

I met a sister who was six months pregnant accompanied by her husband coming from Britain. I was surprised by this adventurist, so I said, “Why didn’t you wait a bit until you gave birth to the baby you are carrying and then perform hijrah!” She answered,

“WE COULD NOT HANDLE WAITING ANY LONGER. WE MELTED YEARNING FOR THE ISLAMIC STATE!”

Another sister performed hijrah with her husband while she was pregnant. She travelled by car and passed through three countries until she reached the land of the Islamic State and then gave birth to her child who, by Allah’s decree, died during birth due to pregnancy complications apparently caused by the difficulty of the trip. Yes, he died and was buried in the Islamic State while his mother is always in remembrance of Allah and grateful to Him, I consider her such and Allah is her judge. Yes, he died and was buried in the Islamic State upon the fitrah, and this is better for him than to die through the curriculum of the tawāghīt’s schools. How valuable is the hijrah and how valueless is every sacrifice on its path.

There was also this elderly grandmother who was my companion during the enjoyable journey. She came with her son, daughter, and grandchild. After she told us in length what she faced of hardships and tribulations until she was able to depart her land, she said, “My son was killed, so I came with my other son, my daughter, and my grandson!” Allah is the greatest! You’ve raised the bar for everyone after you, O aunt!

Was the path of truth covered with anything but thorns? Was Jannah surrounded with anything but disliked matters? On the path towards Jannah, there is no place for the fearful and for cowards!

And even if I were to forget everything, I would never forget the moment our feet treaded upon the good lands of Islam and the moment our eyes saw the ‘Uqāb banner fluttering high. Our hearts were cooled after having seen the idols fluttering in the skies of dārul-kufr for so long! The first checkpoint we saw, the first image of the State’s soldiers far from the Internet and TV screens – those dusty and ragged in their flesh and blood – we saw them here with our eyes while tears from our eyes poured forth generously and our tongues pronounced the takbīr silently. How much good have you forbidden yourself, O you who have sat back and remained behind jihād!

Allah (ta’ālā) said,

{INDEED, THOSE WHOM THE ANGELS TAKE [IN DEATH] WHILE WRONGING THEMSELVES – [THE ANGELS] WILL SAY, “IN WHAT [CONDITION] WERE YOU?” THEY WILL SAY, “WE WERE OPPRESSED IN THE LAND.” THE ANGELS WILL SAY, “WAS NOT THE EARTH OF ALLAH SPACIOUS [ENOUGH] FOR YOU TO EMIGRATE THEREIN?” FOR THOSE, THEIR REFUGE IS HELL – AND EVIL IT IS AS A DESTINATION}

[An-Nisā’: 97]

Ibn Qudāmah (rahimahullāh) said,

“THIS IS A SEVERE THREAT INDICATIVE OF AN OBLIGATION”

[Al-Mughnī]

Some ears of Allah’s female slaves heard this āyah and comprehended it, so they rolled up their sleeves and abandoned their lands, families, and friends, and their goal was to live under the shade of the Islamic Sharī’ah. Every time I asked one of them what brought her, the same answer as the previous sister’s would fall upon my ears, “Allah’s Sharī’ah,” a short and clear answer. Rather it is a comprehensive answer! As for the ears of the men from my people, then it is as if they are deaf, except for those whom Allah has saved. This one is pulled by the Dunyā. The other is inhibited by a wife. Another asked for the opinion of a terrified “shaykh” that answered, “My boy, sit back. Be wary of tribulations!” Shaytān whispered deeply into others’ minds, so matters became blurry for them; they no longer could recognize good from evil. To them I say: Perform two raka’āt in the depths of the night with truthful prostrations, and make supplications soaked with tears, and say, “O Allah, show me the truth as truth and guide me to following it, and show me the falsehood as falsehood, and guide me to avoid it.” If you are truthful, then by Allah’s might and strength, you will not stay back for long.

No matter what I saw and what my fingers pen, I can never fulfill the rights of the muhājirāt who performed hijrah to the Islamic State. If not for some obstacles, I would mention stories that make the eyes weep. I saw sisters on a night enflamed by battle send their fifteen year old sons outside the home saying,

“ALLAH IS THE GREATEST! GO TO JANNAH WHOSE WIDTH IS THAT OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH!”

O Lord, it is their sons! Their own flesh and blood! But they are not more valuable than the religion nor this Ummah! Yes, they are muhājirāt who came to the Islamic State! I say it without pride. They understood that Hārithah is in Firdaws in accordance with the testimony of mankind’s leader – may my father and mother be sacrificed for him. For, “Hārithah was injured on the day of Badr while he was a young lad, so his mother came to the Prophet (sallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and said,

‘O RASŪLULLĀH, YOU KNOW HĀRITHAH’S PLACE IN MY HEART. IF HE IS IN JANNAH, I WILL BE PATIENT AND AWAIT REWARD, BUT IF IT IS THE OTHER… WHAT DO YOU ADVISE I DO?’ SO HE (SALLALLĀHU ‘ALAYHI WA SALLAM) SAID, ‘WOE UNTO YOU, HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND? IS IT JUST ONE JANNAH? THERE ARE MANY LEVELS IN JANNAH AND HE IS IN AL-FIRDAWS’”

[Sahīh al-Bukhārī]

Here, I whisper into the ear of every muhājirah sister who has been afflicted with the loss of her Husband on the battlefield here in the State of honor: Be firm, my dear sister, be patient, and await your reward. Be wary, be wary of thinking of going back to the lands of the tawāghīt. Know that you have sisters who have been afflicted with great afflictions. Some of their husbands were killed, some were amputated, some were paralyzed, and some were imprisoned, but their wives were firm like the firmest of mountains. The tribulations did not increase them in anything but firmness and patience. Do not forget that reward is in accordance with the degree of hardship and

“THE MATTER OF THE BELIEVER IS AMAZING. ALL OF HIS AFFAIRS ARE GOOD AND THAT IS ONLY FOR THE BELIEVER. IF HE IS AFFLICTED WITH HAPPINESS, HE THANKS ALLAH AND THAT IS GOOD FOR HIM. AND IF HE IS AFFLICTED WITH HARDSHIP, HE IS PATIENT AND SO IT IS GOOD FOR HIM”

[Sahīh Muslim]

This is the path for the patient believing women, not the half-men whose attempts at dissuasion we see on what they refer to as “Minbar (Podium) at-Tawhīd wal-Jihād,” where they call the people to remove the women from the blessed Wilāyat Nīnawā!

And for he who wears the cloak of advice upon that podium of dissuasion, I say: You falsely claim to fear for the muwahhidāt who do not fear anything but Allah; if there were any good in you, you would have worn clothes of war and come to guard the outskirts of Mosul to thereby protect your “sisters,” but not in the least… May Allah disfigure the turbans of the PKK’s women, yet they have more manhood than your likes!

Our last call is that all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the creation. May blessings and peace be upon our leader Muhammad and upon all his family and companions.

HIJRAH TO THE ISLAMIC STATE: WHAT TO PACK UP, WHO TO CONTACT, WHERE TO GO


Narrated by Abdullah Ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) that,

The Prophet Muhammad (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said:

“THERE WILL BE HIJRAH (EMIGRATION) AFTER HIJRAH (EMIGRATION). THE BEST PEOPLE ON EARTH WILL BE THOSE WHO KEEP TO THE LAND OF IBRAHIM’S HIJRAH.”

Hasan (Good) – reported by Imam Ahmad, Abu Dawud, and al-Hakim

Shaykhul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) said,

“ISLAM IN THE END OF TIMES WILL BE MORE MANIFEST IN SHAM (GREATER SYRIA). […] SO THE BEST OF THE PEOPLE ON THE EARTH IN THE END OF TIMES WILL BE THOSE WHO KEEP TO THE LAND OF IBRAHIM’S HIJRAH, WHICH IS SHAM”

Majmu’ul-Fatawa

The Distance from Şanlıurfa Airport (Southern Turkey Region) to Ar Raqqah is 127.9 kilometers (79.5 miles)

HOW ISLAMIC STATE MEMBERS GET INTO & OUT OF SYRIA:

People who leave to get to Syria do not tell anyone, not even family. Travelers to Syria usually want to reach Turkey. But for safety reasons, they buy a ticket for an indirect holiday country like Spain or Greece so their destination doesn’t seem suspicious. (Note: they buy a 2 way ticket [go and return type] to avoid further suspicion [even if they plan on never using the return ticket]).

Once in Spain, Greece, or any Europe country, they then buy another ticket to go to Turkey. (Some people lately have started traveling by Ship/ferry, or car/bus because there is less scrutiny and less checks.)

When a person reaches Turkey, they will rent a hotel and make contact with someone in Syria. This is often done by a known Twitter or contact. A contact is important because once a person is in Turkey, they will require protection in addition to not knowing where to go to, or who to trust.

1. The most common method used to be (2012-14) to simply make contact with a friend before crossing the Syrian Baab Al- Salaam or Baab Al-Hawwa border crossings, and the TRAVELER DRESSES CASUALLY AND DOES NOT LOOK RELIGIOUS. In cases like this, the Turkish border guards might have given them a visa. Then the person may meet their contact before or after, but near the crossing in one of the refugee camps. However, sometimes the visa was refused (unless a bribe could possibly be paid). If refused, a person was sent back to Turkey.

2. Updated method [2014-2015]: Many emigrants now enter Turkey, go to a hotel, and then contact their Twitter or phone contact. Their contact will leave Syria, meet them in their hotel (it’s important to meet before crossing for security) and they will together go to Şanlıurfa in Turkey (border crossing: Tal Abyad [Akcacale in Turkey] (see map) – it is safer because it is closer to al-Raqqah –the capital of the Islamic State- in Syria.) There is no border crossing here, but there may be guards on the long Syrian-Turkish border. You both look around, and if the coast is clear – they run as fast as they can into Syria, and get into a car of a friend and go to Raqqah. (There is a story of someone reaching Raqqah simply with google maps and a wire cutter [if any barbed wires come in the way]).

3. Lately things have got harder at the Turkish border, so Islamic State members often meet new people in Turkey hotels and smuggle them across the border.

Islamic State members have safe houses in Turkey where many travelers live (usually males only). Here identity papers/passports/visas may be forged to help in smuggling people into Syria. However it is extremely difficult to know the whereabouts of these houses because it is a secret, unless a person has contact with some of its members who give him a contact number and a tazkiyah (a paper signed by an existing member to show he is trustworthy.)

[Note: it is important to know that the Turkish intelligence agencies are in no way friends of the Islamic State, they will try to imprison anyone they suspect of being members of the Islamic State. The only reason members live in Turkey in some peace is because Turkey fears revenge attacks.]

Did you know a group of Turkistanis sent a letter to Amīrul Muminīn Abu Bakr Al-Baghdādī expressing their situation to him & their desire to make Hijrah, though they had no money. So Amīrul Muminīn Abu Bakr Al-Baghdādī arranged for their Hijrah (emigration) and provided for them the best accommodation, & before they reached Dawlah their housing & things they may need were already ready.

HIJRAH ADVICE 1: SUGGESTED SETUP FOR PACKING

In this section, Insha’Allah we’ll be discuss about what t pack, read it slowly and make sure you don’t buy anything from the list which will make you look suspicious (you know your country’s situation better). Once you emigrate – don’t tell your real name to anyone!

1 × satchel-type bag
1 × backpack
1 × suitcase

That’s it. Three pieces. Nothing more.

THE SATCHEL-TYPE BAG:

Look, this doesn’t need to be a satchel. You could use a (very) small backpack, as well which you wear on the front. A belt pack would also very well do the trick. The purpose of it is to keep your (what I will term here as) “vital” belongings. Be sure that it is easily accessible. By this, I mean that if you would need to take something out of it, you wouldn’t have to do a contortionist’s pose to reach whatever you’re looking for. Also, make sure that it will not rip or tear up on you. (All this might seem common sense, but believe me, some people come here crazily and critically unprepared.

“Regular” vital belongings might include:

• Passport / Plane ticket / Wallet/ Cash

• Mobile phone / Earphones and Charger (and plug / adapter)

What I suggest you add as your vital belongings:

• Handkerchief
• Wet wipes
• Tissue paper
• Small LED flashlight
• Few Band-Aids
• Glasses/Sunglasses
• Pen and Paper
• A few pills (if you suffer from any condition)

Anything which you think you might need to survive for 24 hours (if ever you lost the other two pieces of luggage).

Notice that everything in the satchel must conform to the rules and regulations of air travel. That is, no knives, scissors, nail clippers, liquids and explosives etc. So, inform yourself if you’re not sure of anything.

BACKPACK:

The backpack is what you would carry as “hand” luggage. Normally, you would be allowed 7-8 kg of hand luggage. It is especially important to find out about your hand luggage weight allowance since my advice to you is to use up all the 7-8 kg.

The backpack I would advise you to get is one which is padded. Your backpack should be tough and be able to withstand you running with it and roughing it around. (This is very important and you will understand why in due time.)

Nothing but a backpack will do. Not a duffel bag, not a suitcase, not a trolley case. A backpack and only a backpack.

I also advise a backpack with many small pockets, inner pockets, padded pockets, multiple compartments, etc. This will enable you to pack your stuff in an orderly manner and it will be easier for you to retrieve anything you might need.

The Backpack will also be of great use to you after you make Hijrah as you will definitely have to move around in al-Shām, once you get here.

WHAT YOU SHOULD ABSOLUTELY PACK IN THE BACKPACK AND NOT IN THE SUITCASE

[What I list here are items which will be of great use to you in al-Shām. If you can’t afford stuff on this list, so be it, AlhamdulilLah, Qaddar Allahu Wa Mā Shā Fa’al. You DON’T need to buy everything on this list before you make Hijrah. These are just items which would facilitate your stay here, but let not your making Hijrah depend on your ability to afford those items. One muhājir I met here came only with the Clothes on his back and a few other belongings. Also, the fact that I list items in this article doesn’t mean I own them or brought them here with me. Those are just suggestions. One change of (clean) clothes. This is important in case your checked-in luggage (henceforth referred to as the Suitcase) gets lost or stolen. I’ve heard of people making Hijrah having their suitcases stolen, mind you, it happens. (It’s not a random occurrence that I’ve put this on top of the list of things you should put in your backpack. If you can, even try to squeeze in 2 fresh change of clothes. If you can’t pack the second one, at least pack some clean underwear.)

All of your electronics. Do NOT pack any electric/electronic equipment in the Suitcase. If you lose the Suitcase, you will regret doing so.

EXAMPLES OF ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT WHICH WOULD BE HANDY HERE:

• TABLET / MP3 PLAYER (FOR LECTURES AND QUR’AN) / EXTERNAL HDD (Use a software to “hide” all jihadi material)
• SOLAR CHARGER

I strongly advise you to invest in solar chargers for your electronics. This is very important since electricity is a big problem here. While electricity is indeed available, its provision is erratic and interrupted. On the other hand, there’s an abundance of sun and solar energy which goes to waste. Also, using solar energy is ecological and gives you a certain amount of “independence”. No doubt this will also bring you more ajr and hasanāt since you will be minimizing wastage and polluting less. Wastage is not of the dīn. It doesn’t mean that because you’re making Hijrah, you can now start dirtying the Earth which belongs to Allah. Allahu a’lam. Take my advice and invest in solar chargers which are adapted to the electronics you possess and which are of good quality. The more you spend on your Hijrah from your own pockets, the more ajr you will reap. Keep this in mind. Batteries and battery packs

• PLUG / ADAPTERS: The type of plug adapters you should bring are Type C, E & F from this link (http://www.worldstandards.eu/electricity/plugs-and-sockets/). It’s better if you bring 2 or 3 small adapters which are “adapted” to the plugs here than a single “all-in-one” but bulky travel adapter which will cover up two adjacent plug spaces once you plug them in.

• HAIR CLIPPER: If you’re a brother, this is the quickest way to trim your moustache here, and if you like the Talafi buzz cut or egghead-style, then bring a bigger hair clipper. The ones which are cordless and work with rechargeable batteries are better.

• PORTABLE WI-FI MODEM: These are available to buy here, but if you want you can bring yours, Inshā’Allah. Provided they’re unlocked (or are all of them unlocked? I frankly don’t know).

• FLASHLIGHTS: I recommend you buy three (types) of flashlights/lamps:

o ONE TACTICAL FLASHLIGHT: If you have the cash, go for any type of military-grade one.

o ONE HEADLAMP: This is a very important piece of equipment which you would never regret investing in. You don’t need to buy the most expensive ones. Go for the cheaper ones in a sober color and that will be good enough, Insha’Allah.

o ONE LANTERN-TYPE (CAMPING) LAMP: They’re good for illuminating a room and for other uses such as
eating and whatnot.

• STURDY HARDCOVER NOTEBOOK AND PENS: You need to keep written record and notes of everything you learn here and nothing beats hard copy.

• JACKET: Extremely important piece of clothing. I would advise to invest good money on a jacket. It should be able to protect you from rain and from the cold. There are new materials available nowadays which are very thin and light yet, they offer excellent protection from rain and cold. Don’t go for a bulky jacket as they are very inconvenient. You can also bring cardigans.

• FOOTWEAR: If you can get your hands on military boots, they’re worth your money. Bring also one pair of running trainers which have good shock-absorbent soles. Hiking shoes are not bad either. Go for high- tops or anything which offer ankle-protection. Sandals (with straps) and flip-flops don’t hurt either.

• SOCKS: Thick, sports-/military-/hiking-grade socks. Around 4 pairs are enough, bi-idhnilLah.

• ANKLE – ELBOW – KNEE PROTECTION & INSOLES: Bring any foot protection which you can afford to. Insoles are very helpful. Ankle-support contraptions, as well. VERY important piece of equipment. Essential if you have weak and easily-bruised elbows & knees. This is something you want to bring with you since there is much crawling you will have to do here.

• GLOVES: Shooting gloves, gloves for protection against the cold. Whatever you can get your hands on (or into!).

• BEANIE HAT AND OTHER HEAD WEAR: To protect your head against the cold.

• SPARE GLASSES/GOGGLES-TYPE GLASSES: If you wear glasses, bringing spare ones is essential. If you can get yourself some goggles-type (maybe they’re called by some other name, I don’t know) ones, as well, they will come in handy.

• BOTTLE / CAMEL BACK TYPE WATER RESERVOIR: Sports water bottle. If you can invest in a good Camel back backpack

• BINOCULARS: Not extremely essential but helpful enough. Worth your money if you have extra cash.

• COMPASS: Again, not extremely essential, but if you own one, bring it.

• MEASURING TAPE: A small 3-metre one would do.

• CARABINERS AND S-BINERS: Those are the little things which you will regret not bringing. Very helpful if you have a good idea how they can be of use to you.

The idea here is to pack anything which is “of value” to you. Always think in terms of: “What if I lost the Suitcase? What would I regret losing?”

SUITCASE:

The Suitcase is the piece of luggage which I would allow you the most freedom to choose, but it should be your ONLY checked-in piece of luggage. (Anyways, most airlines allow you only a single piece of checked-in luggage.) Why am I adamant on a single suitcase? This is because you have to be as mobile as possible. Having the Satchel strapped across your shoulder, the Backpack weighing 7-8 kg on your back, you can’t afford to drag along much more. So one light suitcase is what I recommend. Holding it with one hand, you still have your other hand free, giving you the opportunity to switch hands if you’re tired.

Ideally, I would recommend that you choose a “backpacking” backpack. Those big backpacks are very convenient since you can sling them on your back, wear your Backpack in front, with your Satchel peeking on the side. This allows you to have both of your hands free and running will be a tad easier, bi- idhnilLah.

A trolley case is not bad either however, most trolley cases are very heavy (around 3-4 kg) and every extra kilogram will add to the difficulty of your journey. Be very mindful of this.

A duffel bag is also alright. It’s light but it’s not as robust as a trolley case might be. Anyhow, choose a tough one which won’t give up on you.

WHAT TO PACK IN YOUR SUITCASE:

• CLOTHES: Bring only the strict minimum (okay, so some sisters fainted after reading this bit, but continue reading, Insha’Allah). By this, I mean, in addition to your 2 change of clothes in the Backpack, bring an additional 2 fresh change of clothes. Examples of pieces of clothing which would be helpful: Your trousers should be hard-wearing and even military grade, if you can afford. Camping-grade or hunting-grade would be also very useful. Trousers with multiple (side) pockets are very useful. Sports T-shirts are very good. Choose fast-drying materials. Any kind of inner garment to protect from the cold. Cardigans and/or hoodies, Underwear, etc.

• SLEEPING BAG: Very useful. Here you might have to sleep in uncommon places at odd hours and a bed or mattress will not always be available.

• TOILETRIES: Toothbrush, toothpaste and stuff. Skin lotion and hand lotion if you have dry skin. Nail clippers/cutters. To me, those are essential.

• UTENSILS: Camping utensils mostly. Those are not essential, but nice to have.

 FORK
 FOLDABLE/COLLAPSIBLE CUP
 CAMPING PLATE

 SEWING KIT: Here, if you rip your trousers, you will most probably have to stitch them up (yourself) before you get the opportunity to buy new ones.

 FIRST-AID KIT: If you can afford a small one, Alhamdulillah

 MEDICATION AND MEDICAL SUPPLIES: If you suffer from any condition, pack some of the meds you need. Chances are you might not get them here as readily as you can in your country.

 KNIVES: The only reason why you should be packing this in the Suitcase and not in the Backpack is because of flying constraints: you can’t bring knives in your hand luggage, but you can in your checked- in luggage. However, depending on where you’re coming from, you should think long and hard before taking the risk of bringing knives (even in your checked-in luggage). If you’re going through airports with heightened security like those of America or Australia or UK, you should be extra careful. Pray istikhāra if you must. I strongly recommend you to bring knives because they’re essential tools here, there isn’t one day I spent here where I didn’t have to use my knife. Also, knives here are scarce and those available are of very, very low quality (and that’s putting it nicely), so bringing your own is a must.

HIJRAH ADVICE PART 2: KNOW YOUR STRENGTHS & WEAKNESSES

A crucial factor to take into consideration before starting to prepare yourself is to know yourself. More important than knowing who you are is knowing what you can do and what you cannot do.

Allah, subhānahu wa ta’āla, has blessed each of us with numerous aptitudes and the beauty of this is that we each have different talents and sensibilities. Islam enjoins upon the Muslims to live in community. We are a gregarious Ummah, we form societies, and we live together, helping one another. Unlike other ways of life which promote isolation from the larger society, i.e. monasticism and the likes of it, Islam doesn’t advise the Muslim to live alone. On the contrary, the family is the building block of society and the society the basis for the Islamic state.

By determining what your strengths and weaknesses are, you will be better informed as to how you can help establish the Islamic state. There is no doubt that the Islamic state needs soldiers and fighters. However, if we look at the sīra of the Nabi, sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa al-sallam, the nascent Islamic state in Medina wasn’t built solely on an army. It comprised women, children, merchants, etc.: i.e., people of different talents and abilities.

In shā Allah, to help you know your strengths and weaknesses, one of the most straight forward ways of doing so is to make a list, one side of which you will jot down your strengths and the other side, your weaknesses. Once you have done this, you will have an idea (however vague) what you are good at and what you are not good at.

KNOWING WHAT YOUR STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES ARE SERVES TWO MAIN PURPOSES:

Improving yourself and remaining firm in the areas which you have identified as a strength. Let me give you a simple example (although this is pretty easy to understand): suppose you have memorized the Qur’an, it could happen that, if you stop reading Qur’an for a period of time, you could forget some parts of it. We ask Allah for protection from this, but this could very well happen to you in some different area of strength that you have. Same thing for a bodybuilder, if he doesn’t train continually, his muscles get flaccid. So, always try to be on top of yourself. Try to be better than you already are. Allah loves the strong believer more than He loves the weak believer. We ask Allah to make you among the strong believers.

Addressing the weaknesses you have identified about yourself. According to my observations, weaknesses in a person can be due to 2 things:

• QADR OF ALLAH AND THIS IS INNATE AND CAN RARELY BE CHANGED (E.G. PHYSIQUE AND/OR OLD AGE)

• LAZINESS, APATHY, LETHARGY, LACK OF EFFORT, LACK OF TRAINING OR LACK OF MOTIVATION AND THIS IS FROM THE EVIL OF SHAYTĀN AND FROM THE EVIL OF OUR OWN SOULS.

These weaknesses should be tackled according to their nature. Concerning those weaknesses which are Qadr of Allah, you will probably (and in most cases) not be able to find a solution for them. So don’t be sad, instead accept the Qadr of Allah and hope for the reward from Allah. Lā yukallifulLāhu nafsan illā wus’ahā.

The other weaknesses which you have identified to be from your own self-imposed shortcomings should be tackled head on. Those are the loose ends of your personality (e.g. short temper) which you will have to work on (or around). In shā Allah, who knows, one of these weaknesses could be a hidden strength or a hidden source of strength which you knew nothing about. If you cannot turn your weakness into a strength, then you should at least tend to it such that it doesn’t become a burden for you, as you prepare yourself.

I could quote some generic Sun-Tzu line here about how knowing yourself means to have already won half of the battle, but I won’t. It’s enough for you to know that this dīn needs seriousness from serious individuals. Victory is not dependent upon you, however, you can be part of that victory if you are sincere and dedicated and seeking the Face of your Creator.

HIJRAH ADVICE PART 3: GETTING STOPPED IN TURKEY

In shā Allah, I will try to shed light on two issues concerning which I have been receiving some queries. Some of you have asked what the Turkish authorities will do to you if they stop you.

First of all, there are two instances where they can stop you:

At the immigration office in the Turkish airport, while verifying your passport and what not, and when you will be in Turkey, traveling down south to the border. Bear in mind that if they stop you, it doesn’t mean that they will automatically deport you or detain you or put you through an unwanted situation. It’s a toss-up. Trust in Allah.

In the first instance above, depending on factors such as your appearance, your country of origin, your (international) criminal record, etc., the worst they can do to you is deport you and/or detain you. I need to state the risks as they are, but, subhān Allah don’t get paranoid or discouraged by that. I know one brother from the US who was saying that the FBI was on his back almost daily. However, he made it here passing through all the trials that this Hijrah posed, Alhamdulillah. Place your trust in Allah.

In the second instance, after you get through airport security, you need to know that if

• You have a valid tourist visa to be in Turkey,
• You don’t have some kind of an international search warrant on your head.
• You’re not on any terrorist list or out of favor with the intelligence services of your country,
• You don’t have any incriminating material on your person or in your luggage, then, the Turkish authorities cannot arrest and detain you.

All they can do is stop you, request you to produce identification (your passport, most probably), ask you a few questions, probably take you to a police station and ask you some more questions. Beyond that, they cannot do much more, bi-idhnilLah. According to the Turkish brother, some of the questions they might ask you are:

• “WHAT IS YOUR PURPOSE IN TURKEY?” Just reply, “Tourism.” And it’s better if you know beforehand some of the tourist attractions of the area you are in or which will be on your way to the border. E.g. the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, the Tomb of Ataturk (la’natulLah ‘alayh) in Ankara, the birthplace of Ibrāhīm (AS) in Urfa. Learn as much as you can about the tourist attractions found in the places on your itinerary.

• “ARE YOU GOING TO SYRIA?” You can either flat out lie and answer in the negative and talk some more about how you want to visit the grave of Abu Ayyūb al Ansāri (RA) Or you can invent a story about how you viewed a YouTube video about Syria and that moved you so much that you absolutely wanted to help the people (and that’s true, Al-HamdulilLah) and that’s why you’re in Turkey to see if you can do anything to alleviate their plight. But still, don’t say that you want to cross the border and enter Syria.

• “ARE YOU A TERRORIST? Are you (linked to) al-Qaeda? Do you want to go to Syria to join al-Qaeda?” – The Turkish authorities don’t differentiate between al-Qaeda and ISIS. They still think that ISIS and al-Qaeda are the same thing. You should categorically deny any links and push forward the tourism agenda to the maximum.

However, be sure NOT to have any “incriminating” materials with you which would negate your story. This includes knives & weapons, combat boots, camouflage clothing, etc.: basically anything which screams out that you want to get your feet dusty.
So, in shā Allah, take your precautions:

• MAKE SURE YOUR PLANE TICKET IS A RETURN (TWO-WAY) TICKET.

• MAKE SURE YOU OBTAIN A TOURIST VISA and keep it well (it’s going to be in your passport, so keep your
Passport securely).

• MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A GOOD KNOWLEDGE OF THE TOURIST ATTRACTIONS IN TURKEY. Go to a travel agent and get yourself some brochures on Turkey or buy a traveler’s handbook. This is important since if they question you, you can just brandish this in front of their noses and show them how serious of a tourist you are.

• MAKE SURE YOU DON’T HAVE ANY INCRIMINATING EVIDENCE AGAINST YOU. (I know this is contrary to what I advised in Hijrah Advice Part 1). Bringing, e.g. a knife is RISKY. Don’t neglect this if you’re extremely afraid of getting caught.)

• MAKE SURE YOUR PHONE AND OTHER ELECTRONIC DEVICES ARE “CLEAN” FROM INCRIMINATING EVIDENCE.

Plan out an itinerary before you land in Turkey. I advise brothers to take the bus/coach down south. Lay low during the day and travel at night. I advise sisters not to take the bus/coach. Sisters, read the second half of this post. Insha’Allah, for advice about what you should do.

And don’t forget to always make du’ā to Allah subhānahu wa ta’āla that He keeps you safe from the plots of the tawāghīt of Turkey.

AHADITH ON HIJRAH

Recommend memorizing and reading this āyah constantly during your trip:

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

{AND WE HAVE PUT BEFORE THEM A BARRIER AND BEHIND THEM A BARRIER AND COVERED THEM, SO THEY DO NOT SEE.}

Surah Yaseen 36:9

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

AND WHOEVER EMIGRATES FOR THE CAUSE OF ALLAH WILL FIND ON THE EARTH MANY [ALTERNATIVE] LOCATIONS AND AND PLENTY TO LIVE BY. AND WHOEVER LEAVES HIS HOME AS AN EMIGRANT TO ALLAH AND HIS MESSENGER AND THEN DEATH OVERTAKES HIM – HIS REWARD HAS ALREADY BECOME INCUMBENT UPON ALLAH . AND ALLAH IS EVER FORGIVING AND MERCIFUL

Surah An Nisa’ 4:100

Narrated by Umar Ibn Al-Khattab (Radia ‘Allahu ‘Anhu) that,

The Prophet (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said,

“ACTIONS ARE (JUDGED) BY MOTIVES (NIYYAH), SO EACH MAN WILL HAVE WHAT HE INTENDED. THUS, HE WHOSE MIGRATION (HIJRAH) WAS TO ALLAH AND HIS MESSENGER, HIS MIGRATION IS TO ALLAH AND HIS MESSENGER; BUT HE WHOSE MIGRATION WAS FOR SOME WORLDLY THING HE MIGHT GAIN, OR FOR A WIFE HE MIGHT MARRY, HIS MIGRATION IS TO THAT FOR WHICH HE MIGRATED.”

Sahih Al Bukhari

On the authority of Sabrah ibn Abu Faakih the Prophet said:

The devil sat on a man’s path. He waited for him on the path of Islam and said to him,

“WILL YOU REVERT AND ABANDON THE RELIGION OF YOUR FATHERS AND FOREFATHERS?”

But the son of Aadam disobeyed him and embraced Islam. Then, the devil sat for him on the path of Hijrah and said to him,

“WILL YOU EMIGRATE AND LEAVE YOUR HOMELAND WHEN A PERSON IN THE LANDS TO WHERE HE IMMIGRATES BECOMES LIKE A TIED HORSE?”

But the son of Aadam disobeyed him and emigrated. After that the devil waited for him on the path of Jihaad and said to him,

“WILL YOU FIGHT IN THE CAUSE OF ALLAAH AND SACRIFICE YOURSELF AND YOUR MONEY? YOU WOULD BE KILLED AND YOUR WIFE WOULD MARRY ANOTHER MAN AND YOUR WEALTH WOULD BE DISTRIBUTED.”

But the son of Aadam disobeyed him and went for Jihaad.

The Prophet (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) continued,

ALLAAH WILL CERTAINLY LET THE ONE WHO DOES THIS (WHAT THIS MAN DID) ENTER PARADISE, AND HE WILL CERTAINLY LET THE ONE WHO IS KILLED, THE ONE WHO IS DROWNED AND THE ONE WHOSE CAMEL KILLS HIM (BY BREAKING HIS NECK) ENTER PARADISE.”

THE BURNING OF THE MURTAD PILOT


The Islamic State released a video depicting the execution of the Jordanian crusader pilot, Mu’adh Safi Yusuf al-Kasasibah. As displayed in the video, the Islamic State had resolved to burn him alive as retribution for his crimes against Islam and the Muslims, including his active involvement in crusader airstrikes against Muslim lands. When the news of the video broke out, the taghut of Jordan who at the time was in Washington to meet with his masters at the White House – as is the habit of the crusader puppets – cut short his trip, returned home early, and promptly ordered the execution of the mujahidah, Sajidah ar-Rishawi and the mujahid, Ziyad al Karbuli, both of whom had been imprisoned for nearly a decade by the murtaddin of Jordan. The Islamic State had done everything it could to secure the release of both Sajidah and Ziyad, but Allah decreed that they would return to Him as shuhada’, an incomparable honor which they had both desired, eagerly pursued, and supplicated their Lord for. We consider them so, and Allah is their judge. In executing the mujahidin, Jordan is merely hastening the inevitable destruction of its taghut regime.

Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said,

 “WHOEVER HARMS AN ALLY OF MINE, THEN I HAVE DECLARED WAR AGAINST HIM”

 Sahih Al Bukhari

While the execution of Sajidah and Ziyad became the focus of international headlines, the focus for many ignorant hizbiyyin became the manner in which the pilot was executed.

Amongst them was the Jordanian Abu Sayyaf Muhammad ash Shalabi, who stated,

 “THE MANNER IN WHICH HE WAS EXECUTED AND THE SUBSEQUENT PRODUCTION OF A VIDEO DISPLAYING HIS EXECUTION IS A MATTER THAT OPPOSES THE TEACHINGS OF THE PURE RELIGION. JIHAD WAS LEGISLATED TO MAKE THE PEOPLE ENTER THE RELIGION, NOT TO MAKE THEM TURN AWAY FROM THE RELIGION OR TO DISTORT ITS IMAGE.”

Abu Sayyaf ash-Shalabi exposed the full extent of his evil when displaying his remorse for the murtadd pilot in the face of the mujahidin. He also fabricated stories about the negotiations regarding the prisoners by claiming to be involved in these negotiations, whereas the representative of the Jordanian taghut from the beginning was ‘Asim Tahir al-Barqawi (AKA Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi, whose campaign of lies carries on). Furthermore, ash-Shalabi shamelessly lied by claiming that the murtadd Baathist ‘Izzat ad-Duri and other murtadd Baathists were members of the Islamic State and involved in the negotiations! So, a shameless liar – ash-Shalabi – is taken as a “jihadi mentor”! One can only say to him,

 “IF YOU HAVE NO SHAME, THEN DO AS YOU WISH”

 Sahih Al-Bukhari

This type of rhetoric is typical of hizbiyyin – even those masquerading as supporters of the mujahidin – who continue to live under the authority of the murtadd puppets, and of defeatist Muslims who reside in the lands of kufr under the authority of the crusaders themselves, with no intention of making hijrah to those lands in which the word of Allah is the highest. Such people have had their religion diluted and, not surprisingly, are always amongst the first to speak out in any case where the mujahidin display their harshness towards the crusaders, attempting to disguise their criticism towards the mujahidin as concern for the image of Islam. In burning the crusader pilot alive and burying him under a pile of debris, the Islamic State carried out a just form of retaliation for his involvement in the crusader bombing campaign which continues to result in the killing of countless Muslims who, as a result of these airstrikes, are burned alive and buried under mountains of debris. This is not to even mention those Muslims – men, women, and children – who survive the airstrikes and are left injured and disabled, and in many cases suffering from severe burns that cause them pain and anguish every minute of every day.

This ayah sufficiently demonstrates the shar’i validity of burning someone alive in a case of qisas (retribution). The confusion perpetuated by the hizbiyyin, the palace “scholars,” and the ignorant defeatists, is with regards to the authentic statement of Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam),

 “NONE SHOULD PUNISH WITH FIRE EXCEPT ALLAH”

Sahih Al Bukhari

As a result of their dishonesty in conveying the truth, the deviants concealed the fact that there is a famous exception to this ruling made in the case of qisas and maslahah (overwhelming benefit), and that in addition to the aforementioned ayah from Surat An-Nahl, the fuqaha’ used as evidence for these exceptions the following ayah from Surat Al-Baqarah.

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

“SO WHOEVER HAS ASSAULTED YOU, THEN ASSAULT HIM IN THE SAME WAY THAT HE HAS ASSAULTED YOU”

Surah Al Baqarah 2:194

They further used as evidence the hadith of the ‘Urani,

“MEN WHOSE EYES WERE GOUGED OUT BY THE PROPHET (SALLALLAHU ‘ALAYHI WA SALLAM) WITH HEATED IRON

Bukhari and Muslim

Furthermore, the scholars highlighted the fact that,

“THE SAHABAH (RADIYALLAHU ‘ANHUM) PUNISHED PEOPLE WITH FIRE IN A NUMBER OF INCIDENTS THAT TOOK PLACE THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF THE HISTORY OF THE RIGHTLY-GUIDED KHULAFA”

Here we will mention some of these incidents.

The first example:

“IN THE LETTER TO THE MURTADDIN OF THE ARABIAN PENINSULA DURING THE RIDDAH WARS, ABU BAKR AS-SIDDIQ (RADIYALLAHU ‘ANH) THREATENED TO BURN THEM ALIVE IF THEY DID NOT REPENT FROM THEIR RIDDAH. IN IT HE STATES, “I HAVE SENT TO YOU SO AND SO [KHALID IBN AL-WALID] WITH AN ARMY OF THE MUHAJIRIN, THE ANSAR, AND THEIR GOOD FOLLOWERS, AND I’VE ORDERED HIM TO NOT FIGHT ANYONE OR KILL ANYONE UNTIL HE CALLS HIM TO THE CALL OF ALLAH. WHOEVER ANSWERS HIM, ACCEPTS THE TRUTH, HALTS HIS EVIL, AND DOES GOOD, MY ENVOY WILL ACCEPT THIS FROM HIM AND WILL AID HIM IN IT. IF HE REFUSES, I’VE ORDERED HIM TO WAGE WAR AGAINST THEM OVER SUCH, TO NOT SPARE ANYONE HE IS ABLE TO KILL, TO BURN THEM ALIVE WITH FIRE, TO KILL THEM IN A SEVERE MANNER USING ALL MEANS, TO ENSLAVE THEIR WOMEN AND CHILDREN, AND TO NOT ACCEPT FROM ANY ONE OF THEM ANYTHING BUT ISLAM”

Tarikh At Tabari; Al Bidayah Wan Nihayah

The second example:

Likewise during his khilafah, Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anh) gathered a number of his advisors from amongst the Sahabah and consulted them about the case of a man found guilty of committing sodomy.

The one who had the most severe position was ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anh) who said,

“THIS IS A SIN THAT NO NATION HAD COMMITTED BEFORE EXCEPT FOR ONE NATION, AND YOU KNOW HOW ALLAH DEALT WITH THEM. I VIEW THAT WE SHOULD BURN HIM ALIVE.”

So the Sahabah agreed with his position, and Abu Bakr wrote to Khalid ordering him to burn the man alive

Al Bayhaqi

Al-Mundhiri (rahimahullah) mentions that,

“THERE WERE FOUR KHULAFA’ WHO BURNED SODOMITES WITH FIRE:  ABU BAKR AS-SIDDIQ, ‘ALI IBN ABI TALIB, ‘ABDULLAH IBN AZ-ZUBAYR AND HISHAM IBN ‘ABDIL-MALIK.”

At-Targhib wat-Tarhib

SO, AND THE MAN WOUND UP KILLING AND ROBBING ANYONE HE CAME ACROSS, INCLUDING MUSLIMS. WHEN THIS REACHED ABU BAKR, HE SENT AN ARMY TO DETAIN HIM. HE WAS DETAINED AND BROUGHT BACK, AND ABU BAKR ORDERED THAT HE BE TAKEN TO THE AREA OF AL-BAQI’ AND BURNED ALIVE

Al Bidayah wan-Nihayah

The third example:

DURING THE RIDDAH WARS, WHEN KHALID IBN AL-WALID DEFEATED TULAYHAH AL ASADI IN THE BATTLE OF BUZAKHAH, ABU BAKR WROTE TO HIM ORDERING HIM TO NOT BE LENIENT AND TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF ANYONE HE CAPTURED FROM AMONGST THE KUFFAR WHO HAD KILLED MUSLIMS. SO KHALID REMAINED IN BUZAKHAH FOR A MONTH HUNTING DOWN THE MURTADDIN AND TAKING REVENGE FOR THE MUSLIMS WHO HAD BEEN KILLED. SOME OF THE MURTADDIN HE WOULD BURN ALIVE, OTHERS HE WOULD STONE TO DEATH, AND OTHERS HE WOULD THROW OFF THE TOPS OF MOUNTAINS

Al Bidayah wan-Nihayah

The fourth example:

Abu Musa al-Ash’ari reported that,

THE PROPHET (SALLALLAHU ‘ALAYHI WA SALLAM) SENT BOTH HIM AND MU’ADH IBN JABAL (RADIYALLAHU ‘ANHUMA) TO YEMEN, AND INSTRUCTED THEM TO TEACH THE PEOPLE THE QUR’AN. MU’ADH CAME ONE DAY TO VISIT ABU MUSA AND FOUND WITH HIM A MAN WHO WAS CHAINED UP, SO HE SAID, “O MY BROTHER, WERE WE SENT TO PUNISH THE PEOPLE OR WERE WE SENT TO TEACH THEM AND ORDER THEM WITH WHAT WOULD BENEFIT THEM?” SO ABU MUSA SAID, “HE EMBRACED ISLAM AND THEN DISBELIEVED.” SO MU’ADH SAID, “BY HE WHO SENT MUHAMMAD WITH THE TRUTH, I WILL NOT LEAVE UNTIL I BURN HIM WITH FIRE.” SO ABU MUSA SAID, “WE STILL HAVE SOME UNFINISHED BUSINESS WITH HIM.” SO MU’ADH SAID, “BY ALLAH, I WILL NEVER LEAVE!” SO SOME FIREWOOD WAS BROUGHT AND A FIRE WAS LIT, AND HE THREW HIM IN.”

Al-Mu’jam al-Kabir – at-Tabarani

Thus, the Islamic State not only followed the footsteps of Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in his harshness towards the disbelievers, but also emulated the example of his righteous Sahabah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) by punishing with fire in retaliation, and for the purpose of terrorizing the murtaddin and making examples out of them.

We ask Allah to take revenge for the Muslims and the mujahidin, and rain fire and destruction upon the kuffar and murtaddin wherever they are.

ALLAH HAS PURCHASED THE SOULS AND WEALTH OF THE MUJAHIDIN IN RETURN FOR PARADISE


Allah states that He has compensated His believing servants for their lives and wealth — if they give them up in His cause — with Paradise. This demonstrates Allah’s favour, generosity and bounty, for He has accepted the good that He already owns and bestowed, as a price from His faithful servants.

The Prophet Muhammad (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) was asked:

“O MESSENGER OF ALLAH, GUIDE ME TO A DEED EQUIVALENT TO JIHAD” HE SAID, “I DON’T FIND ANY!” THEN HE SAID, “WHEN THE MUJAHID GOES ON JIHAD, CAN YOU ENTER YOUR MOSQUE AND PRAY CONTINUOUSLY, AND FAST AND NEVER BREAK YOUR FAST?” THE MAN SAID, “WHO COULD DO THAT!”

Sahih Bukhari

Al-Hasan Al-Basri and Qatadah commented,

 “BY ALLAH! ALLAH HAS PURCHASED THEM AND RAISED THEIR WORTH.”

Shimr bin `Atiyyah said,

“THERE IS NOT A MUSLIM BUT HAS ON HIS NECK A SALE THAT HE MUST CONDUCT WITH ALLAH; HE EITHER FULFILS ITS TERMS OR DIES WITHOUT DOING THAT.”

The Prophet Muhammad (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said:

“BEING STATIONED IN THE PATH OF ALLAH FOR A DAY IS GREATER THAN FASTING THE DAYS OF A MONTH AND PRAYING ITS NIGHTS. AND IF HE DIES HIS REWARDS OF THE DEEDS HE USED TO DO WOULD CONTINUE AND HIS PROVISIONS WOULD CONTINUE AND HE WOULD BE SPARED THE TRIAL OF THE ANGELS OF THE GRAVE”

Sahih Muslim

The Prophet Muhammad (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said:

 “TWO EYES WILL NOT BE TOUCHED BY HELLFIRE: AN EYE THAT CRIES FROM THE FEAR OF ALLAH, AND AN EYE THAT SPENT THE NIGHT IN A GUARD POST IN THE PATH OF ALLAH.”

Tirmidhi

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

إِنَّ اللَّهَ اشْتَرَى مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَنفُسَهُمْ وَأَمْوَلَهُمْ بِأَنَّ لَهُمُ الّجَنَّةَ يُقَـتِلُونَ فِى سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَيَقْتُلُونَ وَيُقْتَلُونَ وَعْدًا عَلَيْهِ حَقًّا فِي التَّوْرَاةِ وَالإِنجِيلِ وَالْقُرْءانِ وَمَنْ أَوْفَى بِعَهْدِهِ مِنَ اللَّهِ فَاسْتَبْشِرُواْ بِبَيْعِكُمُ الَّذِى بَايَعْتُمْ بِهِ وَذَلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ

VERILY, ALLAH HAS PURCHASED OF THE BELIEVERS THEIR LIVES AND THEIR PROPERTIES FOR (THE PRICE) THAT THEIRS SHALL BE THE PARADISE. THEY FIGHT IN ALLAH’S CAUSE, SO THEY KILL AND ARE KILLED. IT IS A PROMISE IN TRUTH WHICH IS BINDING ON HIM IN THE TAURAT (TORAH) AND THE INJIL (GOSPEL) AND THE QUR’AN. AND WHO IS TRUER TO HIS COVENANT THAN ALLAH? THEN REJOICE IN THE BARGAIN WHICH YOU HAVE CONCLUDED. THAT IS THE SUPREME SUCCESS

At-Taubah 9:111

This is why those who fight in the cause of Allah are said to have conducted the sale with Allah, meaning, accepted and fulfilled his covenant.

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

 يُقَـتِلُونَ فِى سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَيَقْتُلُونَ وَيُقْتَلُونَ

 THEY FIGHT IN ALLAH’S CAUSE, SO THEY KILL AND ARE KILLED

Whether they were killed or they kill the enemy, or both, then Paradise will be theirs.

The Prophet Muhammad (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said:

 “A TRIP IN THE EARLY OR LATE HOURS OF THE DAY IN THE PATH OF ALLAH IS BETTER THAN THE WORLD AND EVERYTHING IN IT, AND THE AREA UNDER A WHIP OR UNDER YOUR FOOT IN PARADISE IS BETTER THAN THE WORLD AND EVERYTHING IN IT, AND IF A WOMAN OF PARADISE REVEALS HERSELF TO THE PEOPLE OF THIS WORLD SHE WOULD FILL THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THEM WITH LIGHT, AND HER SCENT, AND THE SCARF ON HER HEAD IS BETTER THAN THE WORLD AND EVERYTHING IN IT”

Sahih Bukhari

The Two Sahihs recorded the Hadith,

«وَتَكَفَّلَ اللهُ لِمَنْ خَرَجَ فِي سَبِيلِهِ لَا يُخْرِجُهُ إِلَّا جِهَادٌ فِي سَبِيلِي وَتَصْدِيقٌ بِرُسُلِي بِأَنْ تَوَفَّاهُ أَنْ يُدْخِلَهُ الْجَنَّةَ، أَوْ يَرْجِعَهُ إِلَى مَنْزِلِهِ الَّذِي خَرَجَ مِنْهُ، نَائِلًا مَا نَالَ مِنْ أَجْرٍ أَوْ غَنِيمَة»

(ALLAH HAS MADE A PROMISE TO THE PERSON WHO GOES OUT (TO FIGHT) IN HIS CAUSE; `AND NOTHING COMPELS HIM TO DO SO EXCEPT JIHAD = IN MY CAUSE AND BELIEF IN MY MESSENGERS. ‘HE WILL EITHER BE ADMITTED TO PARADISE IF HE DIES, OR COMPENSATED BY ALLAH, EITHER WITH A REWARD OR BOOTY IF HE RETURNS HIM TO THE HOME WHICH HE DEPARTED FROM)

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

 وَعْدًا عَلَيْهِ حَقًّا فِي التَّوْرَاةِ وَالإِنجِيلِ وَالْقُرْءانِ

 IT IS A PROMISE IN TRUTH WHICH IS BINDING ON HIM IN THE TORAH AND THE INJIL AND THE QUR’AN

Allah has decreed this for His Most Honourable Self, and revealed it to His Messengers in His Glorious Books, the Torah that He sent down to Musa, the Injil that He sent down to `Isa, and the Qur’an that was sent down to Muhammad, may Allah’s peace and blessings be on them all.

The Prophet Muhammad (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said:

 “THE SHAHID FEELS THE PAIN OF DEATH JUST LIKE ONE OF YOU WOULD FEEL THE STING OF AN INSECT”

Ahmad, An-Nasa’i, Ibn Majah & Tirmidhi

 Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

 وَمَنْ أَوْفَى بِعَهْدِهِ مِنَ اللَّهِ

 AND WHO IS TRUER TO HIS COVENANT THAN ALLAH

 Allah never breaks a promise.

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

 وَمَنْ أَصْدَقُ مِنَ اللَّهِ حَدِيثاً

 AND WHO IS TRUER IN STATEMENT THAN ALLAH

An-Nisa 4:87

 Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

 وَمَنْ أَصْدَقُ مِنَ اللَّهِ قِيلاً

 AND WHOSE WORDS CAN BE TRUER THAN THOSE OF ALLAH

An-Nisa 4:122

 Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

 فَاسْتَبْشِرُواْ بِبَيْعِكُمُ الَّذِى بَايَعْتُمْ بِهِ وَذَلِكَ هُوَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ

 THEN REJOICE IN THE BARGAIN WHICH YOU HAVE CONCLUDED. THAT IS THE SUPREME SUCCESS

At-Tawbah 9:111

 Those who fulfil the terms of this contract and uphold this covenant receive the good news of great success and everlasting delight.

The Prophet Muhammad (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said:

 “VERILY THE STANDING OF A MAN IN THE BATTLE LINE FOR THE CAUSE OF ALLAH IS BETTER THAN SEVENTY YEARS OF WORSHIP AMONGST HIS FAMILY”

Tirmidhi

 The Prophet Muhammad (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) was asked:

 “WHAT IS THE BEST OF ALL ACTS OF WORSHIP?” HE SAID, “BELIEVING IN ALLAH” HE WAS ASKED, “AND THEN WHAT?” HE RESPONDED, “JIHAD IN THE PATH OF ALLAH” THEN HE WAS ASKED “AND THEN WHAT?” HE SAID, “AN ACCEPTED HAJJ”

Bukhari & Muslim

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

التَّـئِبُونَ الْعَـبِدُونَ الْحَـمِدُونَ السَّـئِحُونَ الرَكِعُونَ السَّـجِدونَ الاٌّمِرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَالنَّاهُونَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَالْحَـفِظُونَ لِحُدُودِ اللَّهِ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ

 THOSE WHO REPENT, WHO WORSHIP (HIM), WHO PRAISE (HIM), WHO FAST, WHO BOW DOWN, WHO PROSTRATE THEMSELVES, WHO ENJOIN GOOD AND FORBID EVIL, AND WHO OBSERVE THE LIMITS SET BY ALLAH. AND GIVE GLAD TIDINGS TO THE BELIEVERS

 This is the description of the believers from whom Allah has purchased their souls and wealth, who have these beautiful and honourable qualities,

 التَّـئِبُونَ

(WHO REPENT) FROM ALL SINS AND SHUN ALL EVILS

 الْعَـبِدُونَ

 (WHO WORSHIP), THEIR LORD AND PRESERVE THE ACTS OF WORSHIP THAT INCLUDE STATEMENTS AND ACTIONS

 Praising Allah is among the best statements.

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

 الْحَـمِدُونَ

WHO PRAISE HIM

Fasting is among the best actions, involving abstaining from the delights of food, drink and sexual intercourse, this is the meaning hereby,

السَّـئِحُونَ

AS-SA’IHUN (WHO FAST)

At-Taubah 9:112

 Allah also described the Prophet’s wives that they are,

 سَـئِحَـتٍ

SA’IHAT

At-Tahrim 66:5

 They fast. As for prostrating and bowing down, they are acts of the prayer,

 الرَكِعُونَ السَّـجِدونَ

 WHO BOW DOWN, WHO PROSTRATE THEMSELVES

 These believers also benefit Allah’s creation and direct them to His obedience by ordaining righteousness and forbidding evil. They have knowledge about what should be performed and what should be shunned. This includes abiding by Allah’s limits in knowledge and action, meaning, what He allowed and what He prohibited. Therefore, they worship the True Lord and advise creation.

Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta ‘ala) says:

 وَبَشِّرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ

AND GIVE GLAD TIDINGS TO THE BELIEVERS

 Since faith includes all of this, and the supreme success is for those who have faith.

 A MAN SAID: “O MESSENGER OF ALLAH WHAT IS ISLAM?” THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH SAID, “ISLAM IS SUBMISSION OF YOUR HEART AND THAT THE MUSLIMS ARE SAFE FROM YOUR TONGUE AND YOUR HANDS” HE SAID: “WHAT IS THE BEST OF ISLAM?” THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH SAID, “IMAN (FAITH)” HE SAID: “WHAT IS FAITH?” THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH REPLIED, “TO BELIEVE IN ALLAH, HIS ANGELS, HIS BOOKS, HIS MESSENGERS, AND THE RESURRECTION AFTER DEATH” HE SAID, “WHAT IS THE BEST OF IMAN?” THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH SAID, “HIJRAH” HE SAID: “WHAT IS HIJRAH?” THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH SAID, “TO LEAVE SINS BEHIND” HE SAID, “WHAT IS THE BEST OF HIJRAH?” THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH SAID, “JIHAD”. HE SAID: “WHAT IS THE BEST OF JIHAD?” THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH SAID, “THE ONE WHOSE HORSE IS SLAIN AND HIS BLOOD IS SPILLED”
