The spokesman of the Islamic State (IS), Abu Hamza al-Qurayshi, released his fourth speech since his appointment a year ago on 18 October 2020, entitled, “So Relate the Stories That Perhaps They Will Give Thought”.
After the standard religious introduction, the speech is a blistering attack on Saudi Arabia—much more, be it noted, than the United Arab Emirates, which has normalized relations with Israel. The U.A.E. is mentioned once, in passing, as a subset of the attack on the Saudi monarchy for letting its airspace be used to facilitate this agreement. Abu Hamza says that after the Saudis and their loyalist clerics defamed IS and said that the Jews were really behind the group, now the Kingdom all-but openly co-operates with the “Jewish mini-state” (a similar term that used by Usama in Laden, who referred to “the petty state of the Jews” when declaring war on the West in 1998). In a similar vein, Abu Hamza notes that some said it was Iran puppeteering IS, yet Riyadh now openly provides assistance to the Iranian-dominated government in Baghdad, and the Muslim Brotherhood—IS’s other great Sunni antagonist—nor any of its allies have a word to say in protest at the even more direct economic relations between Turkey (a government they all support) and Iran.
Given all this, and the Saudi government now opening bars and other venues for drunkenness and sin near the Holy Cities, Abu Hamza incites Muslims to attack the oil infrastructure and other Saudi state institutions now that “what was hidden yesterday is obvious and clear”.
Noting the considerable advances made by IS’s wilayats (“provinces” or branches) in Sub-Saharan Africa, Abu Hamza makes a point of justifying the murder of aid workers, something IS’s newsletter, Al-Naba, has done extensively this year.
Turning to Afghanistan, Abu Hamza lauds the resistance IS-Khorasan (ISK) has shown in the face of attacks not only from the U.S. but from the “democratic apostate Taliban”. This theme is one Abu Hamza hit in his last speech, saying that the withdrawal agreement the U.S. signed with the Taliban in February “is a cover for the existing alliance” between the two, and in Al-Naba 225 in March it was claimed in the main editorial on page 3 that a “joint campaign” against ISK in Nangarhar had been waged by the “Crusaders” with the Taliban as their foot-soldiers. Given that the U.S. military itself uses the term “Taliban Air Force” for its anti-ISK operations in the Nangarhar-Kunar area, IS is not shying at shadows on this matter, even if the U.S. officials are (half) joking and no matter how absurd the notion of the Taliban as a counter-terrorism ally is. (Just this morning, the Afghan government claimed to carry out a raid that killed a very senior, long-wanted Al-Qaeda official, Husam Abd al-Rauf a.k.a. Abu Muhsin al-Masri, and arrested a senior Taliban official who was sheltering him in an area controlled by the Taliban.)
Abu Hamza’s other comment on Afghanistan was to praise the ISK prison break in early August—covered extensively in Al-Naba at the time and used as the public hook for a new version of the 2012-13 “Breaking the Walls” campaign, only this time global, rather than confined to Iraq. Abu Hamza clearly holds out the Nangarhar operation as something that should be emulated.
Abu Hamza then gives a fairly brisk run-through of the other wilayas: Egypt/Sinai, Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Central Africa (with Mozambique singled out by name), and Somalia. In terms of specifics, beyond general encouragement, Abu Hamza applies this to two: Syria, where “the shaykhs of tribes who ally with the atheists”, i.e. SDF/PKK, are condemned and the recent assassinations against such figures warmly welcomed, and in the Central African Province (ISCAP) the damage done to “Crusader France” is noted with particular relish.
In a section where Abu Hamza is clearly speaking for the caliph, Abu Ibrahim al-Hashemi al-Qurayshi (believed to be Amir Muhammad al-Mawla), since Al-Mawla has not made a statement of his own yet, he has one primary message—encouraging the prison breaks to put IS jihadists back on the battlefield—and one lesser one, namely a general instruction to continue trying to exhaust enemy forces through patient guerrilla warfare.
The closing part of the speech is structured deliberately to parallel one of the most famous speeches of Hamid al-Zawi (Abu Umar al-Baghdadi), the proto-caliph who built the Islamic State between 2006 and 2010 in preparation for the 2012-14 surge. Abu Umar declared in his fourth speech in April 2007 that the Islamic State was “baqiya” (remaining), all appearances to the contrary, because it had the correct doctrines and methodology—a speech that is prophetic in the lore of the jihadists and a salve in times when their cause seems hopeless.
The very final appeal from Abu Hamza is another reiteration of the call to liberate IS prisoners.
* * * * *
All praise is due to God (Allah). We praise Him, we seek His help and forgiveness, and we seek refuge with God from the evils of our inner selves and from the consequences of our bad deeds. Whomsoever God guides there is none to misguide, and whomsoever God leads astray there is none to guide. I testify that there is no god except God alone, who has no partner, and I testify that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.
As for what follows:
God says: “And we certainly sent into every nation a messenger, [saying], ‘Worship God and avoid taghut’. And among them were those whom God guided, and among them were those upon whom error was [deservedly] decreed. So proceed through the earth and observe how was the end of the deniers. [Even] if you should strive for their guidance, [O Muhammad], indeed, God does not guide those He sends astray, and they will have no helpers” (An-Nahl: 36-37).
This is the order of God, glory be to Him, from above seven skies. He ordered the people to worship Him and obey Him alone, and to leave worshiping anyone or anything else. He said: “And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me” (Adh-Dhariyat: 56).
So He sent His messengers to people everywhere bearing good news and warnings. Among those people were those were guided with the mercy of God and followed the messengers, and among them, also, were those who were doomed to be astray as they insisted on their kufr and considered the muwahideen (monotheists) as their enemies. God said: “And recite to them, [O Muhammad], the news of him to whom we gave [knowledge of] Our signs, but he detached himself from them; so Satan pursued him, and he became of the deviators. And if We had willed, we could have elevated him thereby, but he adhered [instead] to the earth and followed his own desire. So his example is like that of the dog: if you chase him, he pants, or if you leave him, he [still] pants. That is the example of the people who denied Our signs. So relate the stories that perhaps they will give thought” (Al-A’raaf: 175-176).
Those who can see the history of those before us, will realize the fate of those who disregarded God’s orders and insisted on their kufr, so they became doomed, after God sent to every nation a messenger telling them to worship God alone and to avoid the Taghut. So how can the astray people and the mushrikeen (idolaters or polytheists) say after all of this: “If God had willed, we would not have worshipped anything other than Him» (An-Nahl: 35), persisting in their kufr despite the warnings, like how it is with the mushrikeen today, when the taghut scholars are spoiling the people’s faith. The taghut scholars have dared to oppose God’s orders and misled the masses, and made the tawaghit who are fighting God’s shari’a and creating their own rules the legitimate leaders and rulers of Muslims, and said that fighting them is forbidden. Hence, they disobeyed God’s clear order written in every holy book to avoid the taghut, may God fight them. How deluded they are! If only it was enough for them to go astray, but they misled the masses by their fatwas and mixing the truth with falsehood. So they strayed and misguided, and changed and distorted, and incited to fight the muwahideen, all to please their masters, a crime worse than another.
The sorcerers of today consider the tawaghit as leaders and guardians for Muslims, so they were extravagant in loving them, supporting them, honouring them and twisting facts for them. Their followers consider the scholars they see on TV and social media, who are calling to shirk and the taghut, as the scholars of their time; their fatwas are taken like verses from the Qur’an or Hadith, where they cannot disobey them, so to hell with the followed and follower. The righteous path has became a victim to the ignorance of those who are supposed to follow it, having separated over heresies and vilified temptations, after it was targeted by the poisonous arrows of the donkeys of knowledge. By God, deceitful are the years in which the traitor is trusted and the honest is accused of betrayal, those whom the Prophet of mercy and war mentioned when he said: “There will come to the people years of treachery, when the liar will be regarded as honest, and the honest man will be regarded as a liar; the traitor will be regarded as faithful, and the faithful man will be regarded as a traitor; and the Ruwaybidah will decide matters. It was said: Who are the Ruwaybidah? He said: Vile and base men who control the affairs of the people.”
Where are those from this Hadith! You have believed the tawaghit and took them as allies, and cast accusations of treachery on the muwahideen and fought them, and with this deed you will stand in front of God on the Day of Judgment, and you will repudiate and disown your tawaghit, asking God to double their torture. God says: “And they will say, ‘Our Lord, indeed we obeyed our masters and our dignitaries, and they led us astray from the [right] way. Our Lord, give them double the punishment and curse them with a great curse’”(Al-Ahzab: 67-68).
O scholars of the tawaghit and their allies and followers, you who dared to challenge God’s orders! Know and be certain that just like you support the tawaghit and raised them above your heads in this life, you will declare your regret and innocence from them in the Akhirah and wish you can put them under your feet for all the torture you will witness, but then it is too late for regret. God says: “And those who disbelieved will [then] say, “Our Lord, show us those who misled us of the jinn and men [so] we may put them under our feet that they will be among the lowest” (Fussilat: 29).
O you who look down on our jihad, and stab at our beliefs day and night, and support the tawaghit against us and ridicule us, by God, there will come a day when you stand between the hands of God, and your eyes will then see the truth, and you will say, by God’s permission: “And they will say, “Why do we not see men whom we used to count among the worst? Is it [because] we took them in ridicule, or has [our] vision turned away from them?’ Indeed, that is truth the quarrelling of the people of the Fire” (Saad: 62-64).
As for those lost in suspicions and temptations, know that if you look with the eyes of reason and fairness, and not with the eyes of the arguer and debater, you will then touch the truth, and will realize that the tawaghit used a thousand ways to defame our jihad, and the sorcerers of our time, the scholars of the tawaghit, had a great part in doing so; they launched a malicious war against us to disfigure our jihad, and to keep people from knowing about us, fearing that the Muslim youth will rush to join the Islamic State, and fearing for the interests of their masters the tawaghit, who bought their tongues and minds to prevent from the path of God.
So they falsely accused the Islamic State of being one of the arms of the Jewish mini-state in the region, to execute their plans and destroy the lands of Muslims, so they claimed. And we are asking you, where are their tongues from what they said yesterday? After the Emirates and Bahrain declared public relations with the Jews, and Al-Salul (the House of Saud) opened up their airspace for them to pass as they please as a beginning for them also to normalize their relations. Where are their tongues today, after they accused us yesterday that we are supported by the Safawi government to displace Ahl al-Sunna (Sunnis) in Iraq and destroy their homes, when Al-Salul announced financing the new project of the Rafidi (Shi’a) taghut, the murtad (apostate) [Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa] al-Kadhemi, with millions of dollars?! And where are their tongues today from the crimes of Al-Salul and their desecration of the Haram by opening bars and nightclubs, by Mecca?! And where are the tongues of the corrupting murtad [Muslim] Brotherhood today, after they accused us yesterday of working for the Rafidi government of Iran to destroy the regions of Ahl al-Sunna in Iraq and Syria (al-Sham), when the tawaghit of Turkey declared economic cooperation with them?! And where are the tongues of the coward TV scholars who were yelling yesterday, and misleading people and preventing them from following the path of God, and lying to them by saying that if we were honest in our jihad we would fight the Jews in Palestine? Here are the Jews today, coming to you and wandering freely in your streets, safe and secure, by your taghut’s permission and based on your fatwas. So, will you show us how you will kill them after you traded with the minds of simple people? All your deeds and your stabbing at our jihad is inspired from your demons who swore to deviate the muwahideen at every corner. God says: “Shall I inform you upon whom the devils descend? They descend upon every sinful liar” (Ash-Shu’ara: 221-222).
O agents of the taghut who claim to be knowledgeable, did you not read God’s words, “You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers [to be] the Jews and those who associate others with God” (Al-Ma’idah: 82). And you are inviting people and inciting them with your fatwas to be peaceful and live with those whom God damned!? May God damn and shed His anger on all the aggressors, may God damn the defamers and changers of His religion, you have nothing to do with Islam. God says: “Have you not considered those who make allies of a people with whom God has become angry? They are neither of you nor of them, and they swear to untruth while they know [they are lying]. God has prepared for them a severe punishment. Indeed, it was evil that they were doing” (Al-Mujadilah: 14-15).
After all of this, we ask, where are the brains of people and their eyes and ears to the truth of the tawaghit and their supporters and their donkeys of knowledge?! It is truly the blindness of the hearts. God says: “So have they not travelled through the earth and have hearts by which to reason and ears by which to hear? For indeed, it is not eyes that are blinded, but blinded are the hearts which are within the breasts” (Al-Hajj: 46).
To all the Muslims everywhere, the truth of the tawaghit and their follower from the donkeys of knowledge and their supporters is as clear as daylight. After we warned you of them for years and years, now they have declared their kufr and their corruption of the land and their slavery to the crusaders, following their commands. And when the images of their support and submission to the kuffar became too obvious, they asked their donkeys of knowledge to push you to submit to the Jews just like them, so they can corrupt and humiliate you and keep you from your religion. If only my people knew! The Arab tawaghit who are ruling the Muslims’ lands, if they are not themselves Jews, they have submitted to them and to every sect of kufr and ridda (apostasy), before they were allowed to sit on the ruling chair and make up laws. Here are their actions speaking for them, and their truth has become obvious to you. So what will do after they sold you to the Crusaders and the Jews in public? Are you going to leave their obedience and burn their institutions? Or will you remain behind the social media that you used to deceive yourselves for long years, just being angry and condemning everything and whatever is called the “outrage”.
Let Muslims know everywhere that we are free and not slaves, and that iron cannot be fought with condemnations and promises, but with strength and power.
The Prophet said: “He who dies while defending his property is a martyr; he who dies in defence of his own life is a martyr; and he who dies in defence of his faith is a martyr, he who dies in defence of his family is a martyr.”
By God, if you do not fight today in defence of your religion, people, land and property, then what will you fight for and when?! When will you stop panting after the mirage of this mortal life, and taking hell for heaven! So roll up your sleeves and light the spark. The Messenger of God said: “Jannah becomes incumbent for a Muslim who fights for the Cause of God for a period as long as the time between two consecutive turns of milking a she-camel.”
So carry with your right hand the axe of the Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) to crush the idols of slavery, and to destroy the halls of filth and nightclubs, and do not let a bunch of taghut worshipers nor their soldiers prevent you.
As for the youth of the Peninsula of Muhammad , your brothers were first in the field of the Islamic State in the Wilayat of Iraq and Syria, they made their blood cheap and their body parts splatter and their souls gush forth for the sake of raising the word of Tawhid and battling the enemies of the religion. We say that there is still goodness in the youth of the Ummah, by God’s permission, but evil has grown in size and its voice seems louder. So has God in supporting your religion. If you can not make hijra (emigrate) to the fields of jihad, then the citizens of the crusaders are everywhere right in front of you. Ask God for support and depend on Him to kill and crush them, and burn and choke them, and work on hitting the economy of Al-Salul’s country, which financed every war against the muwahideen everywhere. Depend on God, there are plenty of targets, and plenty of means of destruction that are easily available, and all praise is due to God. So start hitting and burning their oil pipelines, factories and institutions that are resources for the taghut’s government, and have a share in demolishing the halls of filth and drunkenness, now that what was hidden yesterday is obvious and clear, and things are appearing in their true colours. They allowed what God forbade in the most holy of places, the Muslims’ Qibla, and they added to their kufr that they dared describe what they are doing as halal. So will you heal the hearts of muwahideen from them and their murtad followers? And will you cleanse the land from their filth after they corrupted it for years? O our people, answer God and pursue your quest out of desire and dread.
To the Muslim masses in Nigeria, Mali, Burkina Faso, Congo, Kenya and Chad, until when you will stop being afraid to face the tawaghits who were let upon your necks at the directions of their Crusader masters, who steal your goods and every now and then brag about distributing aid to you, while in reality it is your own resources that they stole from between your hands. Even worse than that, they use their aid distributors to invite you to Christianity and to become kuffar, by their missionary campaigns that they launch along with aid campaigns every now and then to fool people, and to hide their crimes, to appear like preachers of peace who are trying to be good to you. So we ask you, by God when did they enslave you while your mothers gave birth to free men? The free will spill rivers of blood for his religion, so why are you so quiet about their crimes and oppression, and why are you letting down your religion? God says: “O you who have believed, do not take the disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do you wish to give God against yourselves a clear case? Indeed, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire and never will you find for them a helper Except for those who repent, correct themselves, hold fast to God, and are sincere in their religion for God, for those will be with the believers. And God is going to give the believers a great reward” (An-Nisa’: 144-146).
So stand up against the Crusader campaigns and their agents from the murtad governments, who are pushing their project in your regions, and join the soldiers of the caliphate (khilafa), as they are by God’s permission your true fortress in the face of all sects of kufr. And start burning the Crusader companies who came to steal your goods and enslave and humiliate you. Stand up together like a single man and do not fear blame in the sake of God.
And to those who committed ridda and walked behind the missionary campaigns, “Those who take disbelievers as allies instead of the believers. Do they seek with them honour [through power]? But indeed, honour belongs to God entirely” (An-Nisa’: 139). We say to them: know that being poor is not an excuse to change your religion and commit kufr, and that our Prophet told us: “Kill who changed his religion.”
To the lions of the caliphate in the proud Khurasan Wilaya, those who are steady and persistent in the face of the Crusader campaigns, and in the face of the democratic murtad Taliban campaigns, we bless for you your raid to free the Muslim prisoners from the taghut’s prison in Jalalabad. May God bless you and your jihad, you have healed the hearts of the believers, and filled and all praise is due to God the hearts of the haters with rage, so expect goodness in this life and the Akhirah, and ease after hardships, by God’s permission. The Messenger of God said: “He who relieves a believer from one of the hardships of this life, God will relieve him of one of the hardships of the Day of Resurrection. And he who makes it easy for the one who is indebted to him, God will make it easy for him in this life and in the Akhirah.” So be sure and certain that your blessed raid will have its effect, by God’s permission, just like what happened with your brothers in Iraq Wilaya, the great conquer of the Rafidi murtadeen, after they had worked on freeing the Muslim prisoners from the oppression of Abu Ghraib and Taji prisons. Truly, whoever gives ease to someone’s affliction, God gives ease to him in this life and the Akhirah, and opens for him doors of goodness he did not account for. So prepare for goodness to come, by God’s permission, and let this be a beginning of your blessed raids to free the rest of the Muslim prisoners.
And to the caliphate soldiers in Sinai Wilaya, the people of bravery and pride, the solid rock in the face of the murtad Egyptian army’s campaigns, mashallah! What men are you, steady and sturdy like mountains! The taghut of Egypt and its pharaoh cannot figure out how to prevent you and stop your jihad, and that is a blessing of God on you. You have healed the hearts of the believers with your blessed operations, so keep moving forward and cut the heads of the kuffar, and make this war a burning fire in the hearts of their homes and keep them busy with themselves while licking their wounds.
And to the quick and bold, in the Yemen of wisdom and jihad, we remind you, our dear ones, to remain patient through hardships and the separation from loved ones. Thank God for every situation. Blood, body parts and souls must become cheap and sacrificed to raise the word of Tawhid. Know, may God protect you, that afflictions are a tradition of God in His creation, so be patient and keep moving forward. The Houthis in Yemen have no one after God the Highest except the soldiers of caliphate. They thought the ground will be cleared for them after Al-Qaeda stopped their jihad, but they forgot, or tried to, that the soldiers of caliphate are on the lookout, and that between us and them are days where children turn grey, by God’s permission. We ask God to grant you their shoulders and necks.
And to the monks by night and knights by day in Iraq Wilaya, the lions of the caliphate and its strong fortress, the patient and sturdy facing the campaigns of the murtad Rafida, mashallah on your deeds, steadiness after steadiness, facing hardships and campaigns and distress. Know, may God protect you, that hardships come as hard as your faith, so be patient, as heaven is under the shadow of swords. And know that the filthy Rafida are despicable cowards who were boosted by the dogs of the east and west, and that they will be by God’s permission defeated and disappointed. If they meet you face to face, they run back crying and screaming. Their Crusader supporter, with whom they do not dare face you, will not last for them, and they think they can stand in the way of who went out seeking his Lord’s acceptance.
And to the lions of the caliphate in the Syrian Wilaya, the sturdy through hardships with patience and boldness, who rubbed the noses of the parties of ridda in the dirt, mashallah on your deeds. You have healed the chests of the muwahideen with your blessed attacks and your plucking the heads of ridda, specially the shaykhs of tribes who ally with the atheists, the ones we have mentioned and warned before, and reminded and threatened them to not follow the steps of the murtadeen before them, but they refused but to be an example for their brothers after them. What is wrong with their minds ?! They seek to dig their own graves, or get their head cut and put between their shoulders. We bless to you your hits against the Sahwat of shame, the ones who oppressed and corrupted the land, and thought that their fortresses will keep them secure, and that they are safe from hits. We also bless to you your back-breaking hits against the murtad Nusayris and the Crusader Russian army, where their personnel and one their leaders met their doom. We ask God to break their strength and return their aggression and delivered their destructive campaigns back to them.
And to the lions of the caliphate in the Wilayat of West and Central Africa, O men resembling mountains, O lions who if the caller summoned them for battle, they answered, light and heavy, to the battlefield, mashallah on your deeds. You have filled with rage all the sects of kufr and ridda by shredding their armies, especially that of Crusader France, and their murtad tails who refused but to be followers and a tool in the hands of the Crusaders. Maintain your raids and jihad, for you are men who do not fear death. Put the kuffar to the ground and do not let them rise back up, as we think of you and God is your judge.
And we bless to the lions of caliphate in Mozambique for their blessed operations and attacks, which all praise is due to God were the cause of great conquests. Keep going, and put the taghut government and its laws under your feet, and repudiate your own strength and derive power from God the Expert, the All-Knowing.
And to the lions of caliphate in Somalia Wilaya, men of war and admirers of battle, mashallah on your deeds. You have healed the hearts of the believers with your blessed operations and assassinations of the leaders of ridda from the police, military and murtad parties. Keep raiding and do not let them take a breath, and make them an example for the rest of filth, for what is coming by God’s permission is more cunning and bitter.
And to the soldiers of caliphate in all the Wilayat, Emir al-Mu’mineen (Commander of the Faithful), may God protect him, is inviting you to follow the steps of your brothers in Khorasan Wilaya by demolishing the fences of prisons and freeing the Muslim prisoners everywhere. So choose your targets and escalate your raids, and keep exhausting your enemy, and keep moving forward and attack again and again. Plant terror and fear in the hearts of the taghut’s soldiers and make them beg for death a thousand time, fearing to face you. Confront them with hearts that believe in God’s destiny, where only what God meant to hit us will. Be with them like the torturous wind, do not leave until they are debris. We advise you to remain steady on this religion, and do not let your will become soft or weak. Divorce this worldly life and leave it for its people, and prepare for the days to come all you can of power, and abandon your own strength for that of God. Events used to happen around Iraq and Syria and a few other regions, and thanks to the success from our Lord we were able to enforce shari’a in them, and today the whole world is living through multiple events, God the generous is preparing his land for something great, and He is more knowing of it, so be prepared to claim any chances and re-emerge, for what is coming on the enemies of God will be intense.
And to the brothers who just joined the caliphate’s convoy everywhere, we have received your bay’a (oath of allegiance) in goodwill, and we ask God to accept from you and steady you on this glorious religion. We would like you to know that the Shaykh Emir al-Mu’mineen and the caliph of the Muslims, Abu Ibrahim al-Hashemi al-Qurayshi, may God protect him, has accepted your bay’a, and is sending his regards, and he advises you not to rush to pick the fruits. So wisely choose your targets and terrify the parties of kufr and ridda who preferred shame and filth. A long lasting few is better than a short ending lot. And we advise you to revere God in secret and public, and to not think high of your strength, and to keep repeating “La hawla wa la quwwata illa billah” (There is no strength nor power except from God), and do not let your tongues stop from asking for God’s forgiveness, and make piety of God always in front of your eyes, God says: “And whoever fears God He will make for him a way out and will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon God then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, God will accomplish His purpose. God has already set for everything a [decreed] extent” (At-Talaaq: 2-3).
And our message and recommendations for all our jailed brothers and sisters is to remind them with the importance of patience and steadiness on this religion, and to know, may God have mercy on you, that we did not and will not forget about you. We work with all our efforts to free you, by God’s permission, even if it is going to cost us lives and huge costs. Your brothers in all the Wilayat are ready by God’s permission to die on the walls of your prisons for the sake of liberating you, and in that Shaykh Abu Anas ash-Shami (may God accept him), who was killed on the walls of Abu Ghraib, left us a great example. So patience, and steadiness, and do not forget to pray for your brothers everywhere, as you have no knowledge for when God will make you hear us scream “Allahu Akbar” while breaking into the prisons of the tawaghit.
And our message to all the sects of kufr and whomever is being inspired by his demons that our jihad is over and that our will is broken, we say to them: You are but deluded, and to yourselves are deceitful, as we are what God destined for you. We will come for you from where you least expect us, and we will show you tragedy, by God’s permission in the middle of your homes, while you are disappointed and in a state of loss, scared and terrified, low and humiliated, cowardly and unhappy, as our jihad will keep going until the Day of Judgment, by God’s permission. By God, and all praise is due to God, we enjoy a great grace that is only known to He who granted it to us, and we thank Him that Ye enabled us to cut your throats and sacrifice your blood to Him.
To everyone who deludes himself into thinking that the Islamic State is over, we say:
The Islamic State, by God’s permission is remaining;
It is remaining, because it is on the path of the greatest of prophets;
It is remaining, because of its patience following God’s orders for years and years; It is remaining, because it did not change and did not alter and did not settle, but it is pushing forward with great patience and faith in God;
It is remaining, because it revealed and all praise is due to God the tricks of the traitorous conspirators;
It is remaining, because it is and all praise is due to God the ark of the muwahideen;
It is remaining, because it is the shelter of the weak and scared;
It is remaining, because it is, after God, the hope of the prisoners inside the prisons of the murtadeen;
It is remaining, because we made blood cheap for the sake of God’s acceptance.
As for the Crusader herds in Iraq, Syria, and Khorasan, we say to them: soon, by God’s permission, you will drag yourself in disappointment and failure from all the regions. You already started to beautify the image of your withdrawal in the media, but you have not yet stated that it is a must for you after the continuous losses you are suffering by the hands of the muwahideen over a decade and a half, that made your most stubborn baffled, as the best outcome is for the pious, by God’s permission.
O God, protect Your worshipers, the muwahideen everywhere and push distress away from them. We ask You to grant us victory, and great conquests, where those who obey You are the highest and those who oppose You are the lowest.
O God, liberate our prisoners, and heal our wounded, and ease for our distressed, and accept our killed. We have no strength nor power except from you, O Most Merciful.
And all praise is due to God, the Lord of all creation.
