Glad Tiding From Somali Ash-Shabab Mujahidun: “And On That Day, The Believers Will Rejoice” - Par One

All praise be to Allah. We praise Him, seek His help, seek forgiveness from Him and seek His Guidance. May peace and blessings be upon the noblest of Prophets and Messengers, our lead-er, Muhammad, and upon all his Family and Companions. To proceed:

After the Mujahideen succeeded in reaching the heart of today’s Hubal, America, striking the very symbol of their economy in Manhattan and the center of their pompous pride, the Pentagon, Bush declared his ruthless Crusade against the Islamic world. Somalia was the vanguard of the countries in the Great Horn of Africa, administered from AFRICOM (United States African Command), targeting Islam, incorporating it into their plans for the region.

It’s true that the Crusader bombs were raining upon the fledgling Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan, but its pains and groans were felt and heard by the Muslim people here, an example of [the way the Ummah is] one body, of which if one part complains, the rest remains sleepless and feverish.

The resoluteness of the Mujahideen in Tora Bora was a spark which ignited the spirit of sacrifice in the Muslim youth. America wished to control the situation and extinguish the flames which were ignited, and so it took the help of warlords and criminal militias, sending them like hunting dogs to prevent the anger which had ignited in the hearts of the Muslim youth from exploding, fearing that it may take the form of an organized revolution, creating another Taliban Emirate here. The matter got even more out of hand, and America was forced to call in the spiteful Christian nation of Ethiopia, and the result, and all praise be to Allah, was even worse for them and even more organized, more united and with more Mujahideen.

Locals and foreigners answered the calls to Jihad en masse, and they fought back Ethiopia and its aides, destroying its arms and defenses. Their plans were foiled by the Grace and Blessing of Allah, and even the enemy confessed to their loss and defeat. They fled, yelping with their tail between their legs, and the Mujahideen continued their Jihad in Allah’s Cause, and thus Allah blessed their path with steadfastness and reform: steadfastness in times of difficulty to abide by Islamic principles and creed, and reform of their plans in accordance to the variables of the time. Victory was achieved, and numerous areas raced to Allah’s Shariah, submitting to the Com-mands of Allah, seeking its rule, judgement and governance. As a result, various Islamic provinc-es were born.

The Path and the Promise

Imam ibn Al-Qayyim, may Allah have mercy on him, said,

“The [path] always starts with trials and tests, then comes the period of patience and reliance [upon Allah], and the end is enlightenment, guidance and victory.” (Shifaa Al-Aleel, p.247)

Movements are measured according to the steadfastness in adherence to the principles which they have achieved though times of difficulty and ease, and joy and sorrow. As we live in times of drastic change, we need to remind the Muslim Ummah that some days are for us and some are against us. At times we see one defeat and trial after another, we are tested in our lives and wealth, while at other times, we enjoy the fresh breezes of victory and sovereignty, and the stu-por of conquest and opening of various new lands. These changing states should not cause us to lose our balance or neglect our principles. The Mujahideen Youth Movement, by Allah’s Grace, are still holding on to the principles it was based upon:

- Our goal is still to achieve the Pleasure of Allah by establishing the Tawheed which is present on our flag: by singling out Allah in worship, and showing obedience to none other than Allah’s Messenger ()

- We still strive to demolish the framework of apostasy and topple the systems of secularism which seek to make humans slaves to other humans, establishing an Islamic system on its ruins and subjecting people to their Lord through the implementation of the Islamic Shariah and go-vernance.

- We still strive our utmost to unite the Muslim Ummah, despite their various colors and lan-guages, under the banner of “Laa ilaaha ill-Allah, Muhammad-ur-Rasool-ullah”, and base our love and hatred, allegiance and disavowal upon the concepts of this banner, which require that we come to the defense of the weak and oppressed [Muslims] worldwide, and strive our utmost to free our prisoners and alleviate the plight of the grieved.

- We still believe ourselves to be part of the global Jihad movement which requires unity, mu-tual help, and mutual advice. What is more important than any of this is to unite the ranks upon the principles of Tawheed, fulfilling the command of Allah and terrorizing His enemies. Allah () said:

﴿إِنَّ اللَّوَ يُحِبُّ الَّذِينَ ي قَُاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِوِ صَفِّا كَأَن هَُّمْ ب نُْ يَانٌ مَرْصُوصٌ﴾

“Verily, Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in rows (ranks) as if they were a solid structure.” (Al-Saff: 4)

A structure whose bricks hold together and support each other, making it as one; each brick playing its part in the whole and filling its gaps, for the whole structure will fall if one brick is missing from its place. (‘Fi Dhilal Al-Quran’)

- We are still striving to recover the usurped Muslim lands, especially the Holy Lands, a cove-nant Allah has made with us, whether we are a movement, a country or soldiers of the Cali-phate.

Obedience, not Innovation

In a time when innovated methodologies exist, produced by secular movements in the markets of slavery and subservience to the West, the methodology of the Mujahideen remains firm, drinking from the well of revelation, deriving it from the guidance of the Prophet (). For this reason, it has produced its fruits in this life before the next, though what Allah has prepared for us in the nest life is the best and everlasting:

- Authentic and Untainted Islamic Propagation which speaks the truth, without giving prefe-rence to some to others, untainted by secularism and modernism, and unsubmissive to the pre-valent state of affairs, and uncompromising with the tyrannical rulers, unlike the call of the scho-lars of defeatism and the kings’ sorcerers who fall to the sides of the path. It is also uninfluenced by pressures and wounds, crossing the limits and going to extremes in accusing others of disbe-lief. Sheikh Al-Islam ibn Taimiyyah said in praise of the moderateness of the righteous Salaf:

Whoever does less than them has fallen short, and whoever does more has gone to an extreme. Some fell short and became hard-hearted, and others sought to do more and became extreme. Indeed whoever seeks moderateness between these two paths is upon the correct Guidance. (Majmoo’ al-Fatawaa, v.4, p.11)

- Al-Hisbah in its broadest understanding, which is promotion of virtue if left by the people, and prevention of vices when they are committed. Allah has opened us a wide door to carry out this responsibility in order to protect this society from immorality and guide it towards loftiness. For the first time in contemporary Islamic History, a specific army has been formed, watching over cities and towns, while the Hisbah Army on the battlefields protect the Islamic lands from the aggressors.

Through this Hisbah Army, the security of our Ummah has been ensured; people are allowed to enjoy life under the shade of Islam, free to practice their religion.

- Jihad in Allah’s Cause, which has taken root and produced its fruit and reached its prime, by Allah’s Grace. Both foreigners and locals have gathered in the market, and now they compete with each other in making the highest profit of martyrdom:

﴿ إِنَّ اللَّهَ اشْتَ رَى مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَنْ فُسَهُمْ وَأَمْوَالَهُمْ بِأَنَّ لَهُمُ الْجَنَّةَ

“Verily, Allah has purchased of the Believers their lives and their properties for (the price) that theirs shall be the Paradise.” *Al-Tawbah:111)

Today, people have become accustomed to things such as martyrdom and martyrdom-seeking, remaining in garrison and long periods of wait, missile attacks and dust, injuries and wounds, as well as the spoils of war and booty.

Victory and Sovereignty

Sovereignty is not something which can be earned, nor can anyone claim that they deserve it. Rather, it is a pure heavenly gift which Allah () grants to whom He pleases:

﴿ وَنُرِيدُ أَنْ نَمُنَّ عَلَى الَّذِينَ اسْتُضْعِفُوا فِي الَْرْضِ وَنَجْعَلَهُمْ أَئِمَّةً وَنَجْعَلَهُمُ الْوَارِثِينَ * وَنُمَكِّنَ لَهُمْ فِي الَْرْضِ ﴾

“Indeed Allah has bought from the Believers their lives and wealth, in return for Paradise.” (Al-Qasas:5)

Due to the fact that the goals of the Shariah are inclusive of the general interest of this life as well as the Hereafter, Allah () has given us sovereignty so that we may see things which we only found buried in books, thinking their implementation in our time to be from the seven im-possibilities, in practical life. Examples of them are as follows:

- Extermination of Polytheism. In implementation of the way Prophet Ibrahim (), the beloved servant of Allah, dealt with idols, the Mujahidoon took hold of the pickaxes of Tawheed, raising the axe of Prophet Ibrahim over their heads and uprooted the apparent symbols of polytheism and idolatry, such as tombs and domes. Abu Umamah () related that the Prophet () said:

“Indeed Allah has sent me as a mercy to mankind and has ordered me to wipe all traces of idolatry.” (Ahmed and others)

Allah purified many segments of our society from grave-worship, grave pilgrimage, sacri-ficing animals for the saints buried there, and seeking blessings from them, after they saw with their own eyes that they were merely false deities who can neither benefit nor harm. They were guided to Tawheed, and they cast aside shirk. All praise be to Allah for the blessing of being able to worship in an atmosphere not polluted with raised domes or over-respected graves.

- Implementation of the Hudood, through which Allah granted us the ability to keep roads se-cure and ensure peace in way unseen in Somalia for decades. From a time when you could sense the smell of gunpowder emanating from alleys and streets, as if they were gardens of death wa-tered by their blood, now the eight current Islamic Provinces are given as examples of peace and security. We challenge the infidel West, and what is known as the “Greater Powers” and their followers from other tyrannical and subjective regimes, as well as organization which prey on

the masses, such as Blackwater, to achieve this type of peace in such as short time span and with such limited capabilities as we have to our avail. Indeed Allah () speaks the truth, as He said:

﴿ وَلَكُمْ فِي الْقِصَاصِ حَيَاةٌ يَا أُولِي الَْلْبَابِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَ تَّ قُونَ ﴾

“And there is (a saving of) life for you in Al-Qisas (the Law of Equality in pu-nishment), O men of understanding, that you may become of the God-conscious.” (Al-Qasas: 179)

- Revival of the Obligation of Zakaah, nonexistent for decades. Things have come back to their original state of normalcy, as Zakaah has been taken from the rich and distributed to the poor. Balance has been brought back to society, and social classes have been done away with. Termi-nology once forgotten, such as a “share for the needy”, “a share for the poor”, “a share for new Muslims” and “a share for the prisoners *in the lands of the infidel nations+”, etc, is now com-mon. We now see tribal notables carrying cards which prove they are Zakaah collectors, visiting people and explaining to them the rulings of Zakaah. By the Grace of Allah, Zakaah has freed the poor from their reliance upon the “World Food Program” which distributes food to enslave the poor of our Ummah. Allah has exposed the truth from their own mouths, as they mentioned in their own reports, that after their sinister organization was expelled from Somalia, the number of poor decreased about 500,000. This was only due to the Grace of Allah, and then the social solidarity which came about after the implementation of Zakaah.

- Expelling the infidel organizations. These organizations were born in the time of colonialism, and had since then spread to such an extent that they became the hidden power behind the scenes, leading and steering the country towards poverty in the name of enrichment, immorali-ty in the name of progress, disease in the name of health, ignorance in the name of education, and oppression in the name of peace and security… this is how they make their goals seem at-tractive. This was the case until the promised day arrived, the day that their true beings became exposed to all, and rights were returned to the masses. These organizations were expelled from Somalia without any regrets:

﴿ فَمَا بَكَتْ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّمَاءُ وَالَْرْضُ

“And neither the sky nor the earth wept for them…” (Al-Dukhan: 29)

As a result, farmers were encouraged, the local economy saw a revival, and Allah allowed the yield to suffice the whole country and its people. All praise be to Allah for His aid.

- Islamic Courts and Office of the Ombudsman. For decades, the rights of the Muslims have been lost in either man-made or tribal laws, or bribes, sources, or favoritism. These rights which were lost were inherited by successive generations as mountains of disputes which have filled

people with hate, taking a toll on peace and security. This was of course until the sun of the Sha-riah rose and did away with the darkness of oppression. The masses referred their disputes to the Mujahideen courts, accepting nothing else due to the justice and recovery of rights they saw in them. Prejudice, tribalism, customs and traditions were disregarded in front of one phrase:

﴿ فَ رُدُّوهُ إِلَى الله وَالرَّسُولِ ﴾

“…then refer it to Allah and His Messenger.” (Al-Nisa: 59)

*People trusted in this system so much that+ they even come from the *the area known as+ “Ki-lometer Four” administered by the apostate government, referring their cases to the Islamic Courts in Mogadishu.

- Islamic identity. It was sought that this country would be rid of its Islamic identity, but it has instead made a huge return after the breakdown of the successive apostate regimes and the failure of the Crusader plans, when the monotheists took control of affairs. Apparent signs of uprightness and guidance started to spread in society, and Arabic was again audible in the streets, silencing other languages and dialects. It also became the official language of public schools, institutes, and the Mujahideen training centers which shelter foreigners as well as lo-cals. A Pakistani, Kenyan, and American Emigrants do not speak any common language other than Arabic, let alone the other affinities which bond the foreigners and the locals.

- The cause and the goal: From the remnants of colonialism and its evil influences on the people of this country is that they were bonded by their loyalty to a false idolic cause which gathered them within the boundaries set by Sykes-Picot. Many died in its cause, and due to it many his-torical wars were fought, becoming the theme of much poetry and prose. But with the arrival of the Mujahideen and their launching of educational campaigns which targeted the very essence of society, the Somali people became convinced that their loyalty should be to the cause of Tawheed, because it unifies all Muslims of the world, and because it is a tangible tool for our goal. The cause is also the goal, as mentioned in the Musnad of Imam Ahmed, in the hadeeth of Awf b. Malik. Al-Ashja’i, in which the Prophet () said:

“A truce between you and the Westerners, *they will betray the covenant and+ come to you with eighty goals.”

I asked, “What is a goal?”

He said, “A cause. Underneath each one of these goals is twelve thousand. The forti-fied stronghold of the Muslims on that day will be a placed called Dimishq.”

The great scholar of hadeeth, Ibn Hajar, may Allah have mercy on him, said: “ ‘Goal, meaning ‘cause’. It has been called this word because it is follows it where it goes.” (Fat’h Al-Bari v.6, 278)

- The allegiance of the tribes. One of the things with which Allah blessed the Mujahideen is that in this period of time, many of the tribes who had been feuding for decades were able to resolve their issues, referring them to the Book of Allah after He sent the Mujahideen. They all agreed, the relationship with the tribes was cemented, and they stood side by side with the Mujahideen in their security campaigns against highway robbers. As a result of this unity, most of the tribes pledged allegiance to “hearing and obeying in times of activity and laziness, financial support in times of ease and difficulty, to enjoin the good and forbid the evil, speaking out for the truth without fear, and that they will defend the truth and side with the Mujahideen against anyone who fights against the establishment of the Shariah.” As required by this allegiance, these tribes, especially those of Bay and Bakool, surrendered all their weapons to the Mujahideen, both light and heavy. All praise is due to Allah, and all blessings are conferred by Him.

They Seek to Extinguish the Light of Allah with their Mouths

All of these blessings which Allah has graced His slaves have been kept hidden from people through the proxy enemy media establishments who have gone to great lengths to distort the facts and give the opposite image of what is actually occurring. Through a preplanned strategy, they resorted to waging war against the Mujahideen from behind screens and microphones, airing things which suit the desires of apostate government, working to polish its image and les-sening the issue of the Mujahideen victories, making truth seem to appear as falsehood and falsehood as truth through their magic. However, Allah sent the Jihadi media as a staff of Moses to “swallow up that which they have made. That which they have made is only a magician's trick. And the magician will never be successful, whatever amount (of skill) he attains.” (Ta-Ha: 69)

The signs of the breakdown of the Christian Crusades are starting to become clear to all. None reject this fact except those who Allah has blinded their eyes or insight. Hollow threats and cla-mor which echoes only within Kilometer Four, and the contradicting statements which some-times arise and threaten, and at other times fall silent, all indicate the extent of failure they were blessed with, by the Grace of Allah.

In Iraq, the Islamic State imposes a curfew, and the leader of the Believers, Abu Umar Al-Baghdadi expressed his disavowal *of shirk+ through the “Axe of Prophet Ibrahim” Campaign, uprooting the idols of democracy. In Afghanistan, the ghost of the gallant Lion of Al-Hisbah [fo-rums], Abu Dujanah Al-Khurasani, continues to haunt the White House. In the Peninsula of Mu-hammad (), Umar Al-Farooq carried a letter whose scraps scattered about, destroying the awe of the inviolable security of the West. In the gigantic north of the Nigerian Battleground, and the winds of Faith gust, returning the leadership to its rightful people after it was usurped by the cross- worshippers when they were briefly inattentive. And thus do the rest of the battlefields of Jihad which have demolished the haughtiness and smugness of the Crusaders, proceed upon firm footholds towards the desired goal.

We can do nothing other than to remain firm upon the path, having certainty in the Promise of Allah of victory, sovereignty and authority in religion. On that day, the flag of Tawheed will fly high over the various regions of the Islamic World. Indeed we in the Land of the Two Emigra-tions hope in Allah (), and pray to Him that He keeps us on the right path, guides our opinions, and employs us in the Cause of His religion, to bring joy to the Muslims and cause them healthy envy, allowing us to achieve what we have lost for decades.

And our final prayer is that all praise be to Allah, the Lord of all that exists.
