In the opportunity, Sheikh Abu Manshur delivered a
talk to the forces of the ahlut tawheed. He stressed
in his khutbah that the entire jundu tawheed (soldiers
of monotheism) must behave hardly and firmly on the
murtadeen and kafireen. He also announced their wishes
to help their Mujahideen brothers in Yaman so that
they become one formidable rank of Mujahideen. He
said, “By pledging to Allah SWT, America and its
allies, with the help of Allah, will be defeated in
the hands of the Mujahideen.”
“Today is a day of sadness for the slaves of America
in Somalia, led by Sharif Sheikh Ahmad. And tomorrow
insha Allah, they will soon face destruction. And we,
O enemies of Allah, will come out in waves with the
forces of tawheed to destroy the remaining of your
ranks and subdue your forces, therefore plan the steps
of your own feet while the jundullah are ready and
united like a formidable fortress. Allah is our
protector, whilst you don’t have any protector.”
