DECLARATION OF WAR

AGAINST THE AMERICANS OCCUPYING THE LAND OF THE TWO HOLY PLACES

(EXPEL THE INFIDELS FROM THE ARAB PENINSULA)

A MESSAGE FROM USAMA BIN MUHAMMAD BIN IN LADEN
TO HIS MUSLIM BRETHREN ALL OVER THE WORLD GENERALLY AND IN THE ARAB PENINSULA SPECIFICALLY

Praise be to Allah, we seek His help and ask for his pardon. We
take refuge in Allah from our wrongs and bad deeds. Who ever been guided
by Allah will not be misled, and who ever has been misled, he will never
be guided. I bear witness that there is no God except Allah-no associates
with Him- and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and messenger.

{O you who believe! Be careful of -your duty to- Allah with the
proper care which is due to Him, and do not die unless you are Muslim}
(Imraan; 3:102), {O people be careful of -your duty to- your Lord, Who
created you from a single being and created its mate of the same -kind-
and spread from these two, many men and women; and be careful of -your
duty to- Allah , by whom you demand one of another -your rights-, and (be
careful) to the ties of kinship; surely Allah ever watches over you}
(An-Nisa; 4:1), {O you who believe! Be careful- of your duty- to Allah and
speak the right word; He will put your deeds into a right state for you,
and forgive you your faults; and who ever obeys Allah and his Apostle, he
indeed achieve a mighty success} (Al-Ahzab; 33:70-71).

Praise be to Allah, reporting the saying of the prophet Shu'aib:
{I desire nothing but reform so far as I am able, and with non but Allah
is the direction of my affair to the right and successful path; on him do
I rely and to him do I turn} (Hud; 11:88).

Praise be to Allah, saying: {You are the best of the nations
raised up for -the benefit of- men; you enjoin what is right and forbid
the wrong and believe in Allah} (Aal-Imraan; 3:110). Allah's blessing and
salutations on His slave and messenger who said: (The people are close to
an all encompassing punishment from Allah if they see the oppressor and
fail to restrain him)

It should not be hidden from you that the people of Islam had
suffered from aggression, iniquity and injustice imposed on them by the
Zionist-Crusaders alliance and their collaborators; to the extent that
the Muslims blood became the cheapest and their wealth as loot in the
hands of the enemies. Their blood was spilled in Palestine and Iraq. The
horrifying pictures of the massacre of Qana, in Lebanon are still fresh in
our memory. Massacres in Tajakestan, Burma, Cashmere, Assam, Philippine,
Fatani, Ogadin, Somalia, Erithria, Chechnia and in Bosnia-Herzegovina took
place, massacres that send shivers in the body and shake the conscience.
All of this and the world watch and hear, and not only didn't respond to
these atrocities, but also with a clear conspiracy between the USA and
its' allies and under the cover of the iniquitous United Nations, the
dispossessed people were even prevented from obtaining arms to defend
themselves.

The people of Islam awakened and realised that they are the main
target for the aggression of the Zionist-Crusaders alliance. All false
claims and propaganda about "Human Rights" were hammered down and exposed
by the massacres that took place against the Muslims in every part of the
world.

The latest and the greatest of these aggressions, incurred by the
Muslims since the death of the Prophet (ALLAH'S BLESSING AND SALUTATIONS
ON HIM) is the occupation of the land of the two Holy Places -the
foundation of the house of Islam, the place of the revelation, the source
of the message and the place of the noble Ka'ba, the Qiblah of all
Muslims- by the armies of the American Crusaders and their allies. (We
bemoan this and can only say: "No power and power acquiring except through
Allah").

Under the present circumstances, and under the banner of the
blessed awakening which is sweeping the world in general and the Islamic
world in particular, I meet with you today. And after a long absence,
imposed on the scholars (Ulama) and callers (Da'ees) of Islam by the
iniquitous crusaders movement under the leadership of the USA; who fears
that they, the scholars and callers of Islam, will instigate the Ummah of
Islam against its' enemies as their ancestor scholars-may Allah be pleased
with them- like Ibn Taymiyyah and Al'iz Ibn Abdes-Salaam did. And
therefore the Zionist-Crusader alliance resorted to killing and arresting
the truthful Ulama and the working Da'ees (We are not praising or
sanctifying them; Allah sanctify whom He pleased). They killed the Mujahid
Sheikh Abdullah Azzaam, and they arrested the Mujahid Sheikh Ahmad Yaseen
and the Mujahid Sheikh Omar Abdur Rahman (in America).

By orders from the USA they also arrested a large number of
scholars, Da'ees and young people - in the land of the two Holy Places-
among them the prominent Sheikh Salman Al-Oud'a and Sheikh Safar Al-Hawali
and their brothers; (We bemoan this and can only say: "No power and power
acquiring except through Allah"). We, myself and my group, have suffered
some of this injustice ourselves; we have been prevented from addressing
the Muslims. We have been pursued in Pakistan, Sudan and Afghanistan,
hence this long absence on my part. But by the Grace of Allah, a safe base
is now available in the high Hindukush mountains in Khurasan ; where--by
the Grace of Allah-the largest infidel military force of the world was
destroyed. And the myth of the super power was withered in front of the
Mujahideen cries of Allahu Akbar (God is greater). Today we work from the
same mountains to lift the iniquity that had been imposed on the Ummah by
the Zionist-Crusader alliance, particularly after they have occupied the
blessed land around Jerusalem, route of the journey of the Prophet
(ALLAH'S BLESSING AND SALUTATIONS ON HIM) and the land of the two Holy
Places. We ask Allah to bestow us with victory, He is our Patron and He is
the Most Capable.

From here, today we begin the work, talking and discussing the
ways of correcting what had happened to the Islamic world in general, and
the Land of the two Holy Places in particular. We wish to study the means
that we could follow to return the situation to its' normal path. And to
return to the people their own rights, particularly after the large
damages and the great aggression on the life and the religion of the
people. An injustice that had affected every section and group of the
people; the civilians, military and security men, government officials and
merchants, the young and the old people as well as schools and university
students. Hundred of thousands of the unemployed graduates, who became the
widest section of the society, were also affected.

Injustice had affected the people of the industry and agriculture.
It affected the people of the rural and urban areas. And almost every body
complain about something. The situation at the land of the two Holy places
became like a huge volcano at the verge of eruption that would destroy the
Kufr and the corruption and its' sources. The explosion at Riyadh and
Al-Khobar is a warning of this volcanic eruption emerging as a result of
the sever oppression, suffering, excessive iniquity, humiliation and
poverty.

People are fully concerned about their every day livings; every
body talks about the deterioration of the economy, inflation, ever
increasing debts and jails full of prisoners. Government employees with
limited income talk about debts of ten thousands and hundred thousands of
Saudi Riyals . They complain that the value of the Riyal is greatly and
continuously deteriorating among most of the main currencies. Great
merchants and contractors speak about hundreds and thousands of million
Riyals owed to them by the government. More than three hundred forty
billions of Riyal owed by the government to the people in addition to the
daily accumulated interest, let alone the foreign debt. People wonder
whether we are the largest oil exporting country?! They even believe that
this situation is a curse put on them by Allah for not objecting to the
oppressive and illegitimate behaviour and measures of the ruling regime:
Ignoring the divine Shari'ah law; depriving people of their legitimate
rights; allowing the American to occupy the land of the two Holy Places;
imprisonment, unjustly, of the sincere scholars. The honourable Ulamah
and scholars as well as merchants, economists and eminent people of the
country were all alerted by this disastrous situation.

Quick efforts were made by each group to contain and to correct
the situation. All agreed that the country is heading toward a great
catastrophe, the depth of which is not known except by Allah. One big
merchant commented : '' the king is leading the state into 'sixty-six'
folded disaster'', (We bemoan this and can only say: "No power and power
acquiring except through Allah"). Numerous princes share with the people
their feelings, privately expressing their concerns and objecting to the
corruption, repression and the intimidation taking place in the country.
But the competition between influential princes for personal gains and
interest had destroyed the country. Through its course of actions the
regime has torn off its legitimacy:

(1) Suspension of the Islamic Shari'ah law and exchanging it with
man made civil law. The regime entered into a bloody confrontation with
the truthful Ulamah and the righteous youths (we sanctify nobody; Allah
sanctify Whom He pleaseth).

(2) The inability of the regime to protect the country, and
allowing the enemy of the Ummah - the American crusader forces- to occupy
the land for the longest of years. The crusader forces became the main
cause of our disastrous condition, particularly in the economical aspect
of it due to the unjustified heavy spending on these forces. As a result
of the policy imposed on the country, especially in the field of oil
industry where production is restricted or expanded and prices are fixed
to suit the American economy ignoring the economy of the country.
Expensive deals were imposed on the country to purchase arms. People
asking what is the justification for the very existence of the regime
then?

Quick efforts were made by individuals and by different groups of
the society to contain the situation and to prevent the danger. They
advised the government both privately and openly; they send letters and
poems, reports after reports, reminders after reminders, they explored
every avenue and enlist every influential man in their movement of reform
and correction. They wrote with style of passion, diplomacy and wisdom
asking for corrective measures and repentance from the "great wrong doings
and corruption " that had engulfed even the basic principles of the
religion and the legitimate rights of the people.

But -to our deepest regret- the regime refused to listen to the
people accusing them of being ridiculous and imbecile. The matter got
worse as previous wrong doings were followed by mischief's of greater
magnitudes. All of this taking place in the land of the two Holy Places!
It is no longer possible to be quiet. It is not acceptable to give a
blind eye to this matter.

As the extent of these infringements reached the highest of levels
and turned into demolishing forces threatening the very existence of the
Islamic principles, a group of scholars-who can take no more- supported by
hundreds of retired officials, merchants, prominent and educated people
wrote to the King asking for implementation of the corrective measures.
In 1411 A.H. (May 1991), at the time of the gulf war, a letter, the famous
letter of Shawwaal, with over four hundred signatures was send to the king
demanding the lift of oppression and the implementation of corrective
actions. The king humiliated those people and choose to ignore the
content of their letter; and the very bad situation of the country became
even worse.

People, however, tried again and send more letters and petitions.
One particular report, the glorious Memorandum Of Advice, was handed over
to the king on Muharram, 1413 A.H (July 1992), which tackled the problem
pointed out the illness and prescribed the medicine in an original,
righteous and scientific style. It described the gaps and the shortcoming
in the philosophy of the regime and suggested the required course of
action and remedy. The report gave a description of:

(1) The intimidation and harassment suffered by the leaders of the
society, the scholars, heads of tribes, merchants, academic teachers and
other eminent individuals;

(2) The situation of the law within the country and the arbitrary
declaration of what is Halal and Haram (lawful and unlawful) regardless of
the Shari'ah as instituted by Allah;

(3) The state of the press and the media which became a tool of
truth-hiding and misinformation; the media carried out the plan of the
enemy of idolising cult of certain personalities and spreading scandals
among the believers to repel the people away from their religion, as
Allah, the Exalted said: {surely- as for- those who love that scandal
should circulate between the believers, they shall have a grievous
chastisement in this world and in the here after} (An-Noor, 24:19).

(4) Abuse and confiscation of human rights;

(5) The financial and the economical situation of the country and
the frightening future in the view of the enormous amount of debts and
interest owed by the government; this is at the time when the wealth of
the Ummah being wasted to satisfy personal desires of certain
individuals!! While imposing more custom duties and taxes on the nation.
(the prophet said about the woman who committed adultery: "She repented in
such a way sufficient to bring forgiveness to a custom collector!!").,

(6) The miserable situation of the social services and
infra-structure especially the water service and supply , the basic
requirement of life.,

(7) The state of the ill-trained and ill-prepared army and the
impotence of its commander in chief despite the incredible amount of money
that has been spent on the army. The gulf war clearly exposed the
situation.,

(8) Shari'a law was suspended and man made law was used instead.,

(9) And as far as the foreign policy is concerned the report
exposed not only how this policy has disregarded the Islamic issues and
ignored the Muslims, but also how help and support were provided to the
enemy against the Muslims; the cases of Gaza-Ariha and the communist in
the south of Yemen are still fresh in the memory, and more can be said.

As stated by the people of knowledge, it is not a secret that to
use man made law instead of the Shari'a and to support the infidels
against the Muslims is one of the ten "voiders" that would strip a person
from his Islamic status (turn a Muslim into a Mushrik, non believer
status). The All Mighty said: {and whoever did not judge by what Allah
revealed, those are the unbelievers} (Al-Ma'ida; 5:44), and {but no! by
your Lord! They do not believe (in reality) until they make you a judge of
that which has become a matter of disagreement among them, and then do not
find the slightest misgiving in their hearts as to what you have decided
and submit with entire submission} (An-Nissa; 4:65).

In spite of the fact that the report was written with soft words
and very diplomatic style, reminding of Allah, giving truthful sincere
advice, and despite of the importance of advice in Islam - being
absolutely essential for those in charge of the people- and the large
number who signed this document as well as their supporters, all of that
was not an intercession for the Memorandum . Its' content was rejected and
those who signed it and their sympathisers were ridiculed, prevented from
travel, punished and even jailed.

Therefore it is very clear that the advocates of correction and
reform movement were very keen on using peaceful means in order to protect
the unity of the country and to prevent blood shed. Why is it then the
regime closed all peaceful routes and pushed the people toward armed
actions?!! Which is the only choice left for them to implement
righteousness and justice. To whose benefit does prince Sultan and prince
Nayeff push the country into a civil war that will destroy everything?
And why consulting those who ignites internal feuds, playing the people
against each other and instigate the policemen, the sons of the nation, to
abort the reform movement. While leaving in peace and security such
traitors who implement the policy of the enemy in order to bleed the
financial and the human resources of the Ummah, and leaving the main enemy
in the area-the American Zionist alliance enjoy peace and security?!

The advisor (Zaki Badr, the Egyptian ex-minister of the interior)
to prince Nayeff -minister of interior- was not acceptable even to his own
country; he was sacked from his position there due to the filthy attitude
and the aggression he exercised on his own people, yet he was warmly
welcomed by prince Nayeff to assist in sins and aggressions. He unjustly
filled the prisons with the best sons of this Ummah and caused miseries to
their mothers. Does the regime want to play the civilians against their
military personnel and vice versa, like what had happened in some of the
neighbouring countries?!! No doubts this is the policy of the
American-Israeli alliance as they are the first to benefit from this
situation.

But with the grace of Allah, the majority of the nation, both
civilians and military individuals are aware of the wicked plan. They
refused to be played against each others and to be used by the regime as a
tool to carry out the policy of the American-Israeli alliance through
their agent in our country: the Saudi regime.

Therefore every one agreed that the situation can not be rectified
(the shadow cannot be straighten when its' source, the rod, is not
straight either) unless the root of the problem is tackled. Hence it is
essential to hit the main enemy who divided the Ummah into small and
little countries and pushed it, for the last few decades, into a state of
confusion. The Zionist-Crusader alliance moves quickly to contain and
abort any "corrective movement" appearing in the Islamic countries.
Different means and methods are used to achieve their target; on occasion
the "movement" is dragged into an armed struggle at a predetermined
unfavourable time and place. Sometime officials from the Ministry of
Interior, who are also graduates of the colleges of the Shari'ah, are
leashed out to mislead and confuse the nation and the Ummah (by wrong
Fatwas) and to circulate false information about the movement. At other
occasions some righteous people were tricked into a war of words against
the Ulama and the leaders of the movement, wasting the energy of the
nation in discussing minor issues and ignoring the main one that is the
unification of the people under the divine law of Allah.

In the shadow of these discussions and arguments truthfulness is
covered by the falsehood, and personal feuds and partisanship created
among the people increasing the division and the weakness of the Ummah;
priorities of the Islamic work are lost while the blasphemy and polytheism
continue its grip and control over the Ummah. We should be alert to these
atrocious plans carried out by the Ministry of Interior. The right answer
is to follow what have been decided by the people of knowledge, as was
said by Ibn Taymiyyah (Allah's mercy upon him): "people of Islam should
join forces and support each other to get rid of the main "Kufr" who is
controlling the countries of the Islamic world, even to bear the lesser
damage to get rid of the major one, that is the great Kufr".

If there are more than one duty to be carried out, then the most
important one should receive priority. Clearly after Belief (Imaan) there
is no more important duty than pushing the American enemy out of the holy
land. No other priority, except Belief, could be considered before it;
the people of knowledge, Ibn Taymiyyah, stated: "to fight in defence of
religion and Belief is a collective duty; there is no other duty after
Belief than fighting the enemy who is corrupting the life and the
religion. There is no preconditions for this duty and the enemy should be
fought with one best abilities. (ref: supplement of Fatawa). If it is not
possible to push back the enemy except by the collective movement of the
Muslim people, then there is a duty on the Muslims to ignore the minor
differences among themselves; the ill effect of ignoring these
differences, at a given period of time, is much less than the ill effect
of the occupation of the Muslims' land by the main Kufr. Ibn Taymiyyah
had explained this issue and emphasised the importance of dealing with the
major threat on the expense of the minor one. He described the situation
of the Muslims and the Mujahideen and stated that even the military
personnel who are not practising Islam are not exempted from the duty of
Jihad against the enemy.

Ibn Taymiyyah , after mentioning the Moguls (Tatar) and their
behaviour in changing the law of Allah, stated that: the ultimate aim of
pleasing Allah, raising His word, instituting His religion and obeying His
messenger (ALLAH'S BLESSING AND SALUTATIONS ON HIM) is to fight the enemy,
in every aspects and in a complete manner; if the danger to the religion
from not fighting is greater than that of fighting, then it is a duty to
fight them even if the intention of some of the fighter is not pure I.e .
Fighting for the sake of leadership (personal gain) or if they do not
observe some of the rules and commandments of Islam. To repel the
greatest of the two dangers on the expense of the lesser one is an Islamic
principle which should be observed. It was the tradition of the people of
the Sunnah (Ahlul-Sunnah) to join and invade- fight- with the righteous
and non righteous men. Allah may support this religion by righteous and
non righteous people as told by the prophet (ALLAH'S BLESSING AND
SALUTATIONS ON HIM). If it is not possible to fight except with the help
of non righteous military personnel and commanders, then there are two
possibilities: either fighting will be ignored and the others, who are the
great danger to this life and religion, will take control; or to fight
with the help of non righteous rulers and therefore repelling the greatest
of the two dangers and implementing most, though not all, of the Islamic
laws. The latter option is the right duty to be carried out in these
circumstances and in many other similar situation. In fact many of the
fights and conquests that took place after the time of Rashidoon, the
guided Imams, were of this type. (majmoo' al Fatawa, 26/506).

No one, not even a blind or a deaf person , can deny the presence
of the widely spread mischief's or the prevalence of the great sins that
had reached the grievous iniquity of polytheism and to share with Allah in
His sole right of sovereignty and making of the law. The All Mighty
stated: {And when Luqman said to his son while he admonish him: O my son!
Do not associate ought with Allah; most surely polytheism is a grievous
iniquity} (Luqman; 31:13). Man fabricated laws were put forward
permitting what has been forbidden by Allah such as usury (Riba) and other
matters. Banks dealing in usury are competing, for lands, with the two
Holy Places and declaring war against Allah by disobeying His order {Allah
has allowed trading and forbidden usury} (Baqarah; 2:275). All this
taking place at the vicinity of the Holy Mosque in the Holy Land! Allah
(SWT) stated in His Holy Book a unique promise (that had not been promised
to any other sinner) to the Muslims who deals in usury: {O you who
believe! Be careful of your duty to Allah and relinquish what remains
(due) from usury, if you are believers * But if you do (it) not, then be
appraised of WAR from Allah and His Apostle} (Baqarah; 2:278-279). This
is for the "Muslim" who deals in usury (believing that it is a sin), what
is it then to the person who make himself a partner and equal to Allah,
legalising (usury and other sins) what has been forbidden by Allah.
Despite of all of the above we see the government misled and dragged some
of the righteous Ulamah and Da'ees away from the issue of objecting to the
greatest of sins and Kufr. (We bemoan this and can only say: "No power and
power acquiring except through Allah").

Under such circumstances, to push the enemy-the greatest Kufr- out
of the country is a prime duty. No other duty after Belief is more
important than the duty of had . Utmost effort should be made to prepare
and instigate the Ummah against the enemy, the American-Israeli alliance-
occupying the country of the two Holy Places and the route of the Apostle
(Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be on him) to the Furthest Mosque
(Al-Aqsa Mosque). Also to remind the Muslims not to be engaged in an
internal war among themselves, as that will have grieve consequences
namely:

1-consumption of the Muslims human resources as most casualties and
fatalities will be among the Muslims people.

2-Exhaustion of the economic and financial resources.

3-Destruction of the country infrastructures

4-Dissociation of the society

5-Destruction of the oil industries. The presence of the USA Crusader
military forces on land, sea and air of the states of the Islamic Gulf is
the greatest danger threatening the largest oil reserve in the world. The
existence of these forces in the area will provoke the people of the
country and induces aggression on their religion, feelings and prides and
push them to take up armed struggle against the invaders occupying the
land; therefore spread of the fighting in the region will expose the oil
wealth to the danger of being burned up. The economical interest of the
States of the Gulf and the land of the two Holy Places will be damaged and
even a greater damage will be caused to the economy of the world. I would
like here to alert my brothers, the Mujahideen, the sons of the nation, to
protect this (oil) wealth and not to include it in the battle as it is a
great Islamic wealth and a large economical power essential for the soon
to be established Islamic state, by Allah's Permission and Grace. We also
warn the aggressors, the USA, against burning this Islamic wealth (a crime
which they may commit in order to prevent it, at the end of the war, from
falling in the hands of its' legitimate owners and to cause economical
damages to the competitors of the USA in Europe or the Far East,
particularly Japan which is the major consumer of the oil of the region).

6-Division of the land of the two Holy Places, and annexing of the
northerly part of it by Israel. Dividing the land of the two Holy Places
is an essential demand of the Zionist-Crusader alliance. The existence of
such a large country with its huge resources under the leadership of the
forthcoming Islamic State, by Allah's Grace, represent a serious danger to
the very existence of the Zionist state in Palestine. The Nobel Ka'ba,
-the Qiblah of all Muslims- makes the land of the two Holy Places a symbol
for the unity of the Islamic world. Moreover, the presence of the world
largest oil reserve makes the land of the two Holy Places an important
economical power in the Islamic world. The sons of the two Holy Places
are directly related to the life style (Seerah) of their forefathers, the
companions, may Allah be pleased with them. They consider the Seerah of
their forefathers as a source and an example for re-establishing the
greatness of this Ummah and to raise the word of Allah again. Furthermore
the presence of a population of fighters in the south of Yemen, fighting
in the cause of Allah, is a strategic threat to the Zionist-Crusader
alliance in the area. The Prophet (ALLAH'S BLESSING AND SALUTATIONS ON
HIM) said: (around twelve thousands will emerge from Aden/Abian helping
-the cause of- Allah and His messenger, they are the best, in the time,
between me and them) narrated by Ahmad with a correct trustworthy
reference.

7-An internal war is a great mistake, no matter what reasons are there for
it. The presence of the occupier-the USA- forces will control the outcome
of the battle for the benefit of the international Kufr.

I address now my brothers of the security and military forces and
the national guards may Allah preserve you hoard for Islam and the Muslims
people:

O you protectors of unity and guardians of Faith; O you
descendent of the ancestors who carried the light (torch) of guidance and
spread it all over the world. O you grandsons of Sa'd Ibn Abi Waqqaas ,
Almothanna Ibn Haritha Ash-Shaybani , Alga'ga' Ibn Amroo Al-Tameemi and
those pious companions who fought Jihad alongside them; you competed to
join the army and the guard forces with the intention to carry out Jihad
in the cause of Allah -raising His word- and to defend the faith of Islam
and the land of the two Holy Places against the invaders and the occupying
forces. That is the ultimate level of believing in this religion "Deen".
But the regime had reversed these principles and their understanding,
humiliating the Ummah and disobeying Allah. Half a century ago the rulers
promised the Ummah to regain the first Qiblah, but fifty years later new
generation arrived and the promises have been changed; Al-Aqsa Mosque
handed over to the Zionists and the wounds of the Ummah still bleeding
there. At the time when the Ummah has not regained the first Qiblah and
the rout of the journey of the Prophet (Allah's Blessings and Salutations
may be on him), and despite of all of the above, the Saudi regime had
stunt the Ummah in the remaining sanctities, the Holy city of Makka and
the mosque of the Prophet (Al-Masjid An-Nabawy), by calling the Christians
army to defend the regime. The crusaders were permitted to be in the land
of the two Holy Places. Not surprisingly though, the King himself wore the
cross on his chest. The country was widely opened from the north-to- the
south and from east-to-the west for the crusaders. The land was filled
with the military bases of the USA and the allies. The regime became
unable to keep control without the help of these bases. You know more than
any body else about the size, intention and the danger of the presence of
the USA military bases in the area. The regime betrayed the Ummah and
joined the Kufr, assisting and helping them against the Muslims. It is
well known that this is one of the ten "voiders" of Islam, deeds of
de-Islamisation . By opening the Arab peninsula to the crusaders the
regime disobeyed and acted against what has been enjoined by the messenger
of Allah (Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be on him), while he was
at the bed of his death: (Expel the polytheists out of the Arab
Peninsula); (narrated by Al-Bukhari) and: (If I survive, Allah willing,
I'll expel the Jews and the Christians out of the Arab Peninsula); saheeh
Aljame' As-Sagheer.

It is out of date and no longer acceptable to claim that the
presence of the crusaders is necessity and only a temporary measures to
protect the land of the two Holy Places. Especially when the civil and the
military infrastructures of Iraq were savagely destroyed showing the depth
of the Zionist-Crusaders hatred to the Muslims and their children, and the
rejection of the idea of replacing the crusaders forces by an Islamic
force composed of the sons of the country and other Muslim people.
Moreover the foundations of the claim and the claim it self were
demolished and wiped out by the sequence of speeches given by the leaders
of the Kuffar in America. The latest of these speeches was the one given
by William Perry, the Defence Secretary, after the explosion in Al-Khobar
saying that: the presence of the American solders there is to protect the
interest of the USA. The imprisoned Sheikh Safar Al-Hawali, may Allah
hasten his release, wrote a book of seventy pages; in it he presented
evidence and proof that the presence of the Americans in the Arab
Peninsula is a pre-planed military occupation. The regime want to deceive
the Muslims people in the same manner when the Palestinian fighters,
Mujahideen, were deceived causing the loss of Al-Aqsa Mosque. In 1304 A.H
(1936 AD) the awakened Muslims nation of Palestine started their great
struggle, Jihad, against the British occupying forces. Britain was
impotent to stop the Mujahideen and their Jihad, but their devil inspired
that there is no way to stop the armed struggle in Palestine unless
through their agent King Abdul Azeez, who managed to deceives the
Mujahideen. King Abdul Azeez carried out his duty to his British masters.
He sent his two sons to meet the Mujahideen leaders and to inform them
that King Abdul Azeez would guarantee the promises made by the British
government in leaving the area and responding positively to the demands of
the Mujahideen if the latter stop their Jihad. And so King Abdul Azeez
caused the loss of the first Qiblah of the Muslims people. The King joined
the crusaders against the Muslims and instead of supporting the Mujahideen
in the cause of Allah, to liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque, he disappointed and
humiliated them.

Today, his son, king Fahd, trying to deceive the Muslims for the
second time so as to loose what is left of the sanctities. When the
Islamic world resented the arrival of the crusader forces to the land of
the two Holy Places, the king told lies to the Ulamah (who issued Fatwas
about the arrival of the Americans) and to the gathering of the Islamic
leaders at the conference of Rabitah which was held in the Holy City of
Makka. The King said that: "the issue is simple, the American and the
alliance forces will leave the area in few months". Today it is seven
years since their arrival and the regime is not able to move them out of
the country. The regime made no confession about its inability and
carried on lying to the people claiming that the American will leave. But
never-never again ; a believer will not be bitten twice from the same hole
or snake! Happy is the one who takes note of the sad experience of the
others!!

Instead of motivating the army, the guards and the security men to
oppose the occupiers the regime used these men to protect the invaders,
and further deepening the humiliation and the betrayal. (We bemoan this
and can only say: "No power and power acquiring except through Allah").
To those little group of men within the army, police and security forces,
who have been tricked and pressurised by the regime to attack the Muslims
and spill their blood, we would like to remind them of the narration: (I
promise war against those who take my friends as their enemy) narrated by
Al--Bukhari. And his saying (Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be on
him) saying of: ( In the day of judgement a man comes holding another and
complaining being slain by him. Allah, blessed be His Names, asks: Why did
you slay him?! The accused replies: I did so that all exaltation may be
Yours. Allah, blessed be His Names, says: All exaltation is indeed mine!
Another man comes holding a fourth with a similar complaint. Allah,
blessed be His Names, asks: Why did you kill him?! The accused replies: I
did so that exaltation may be for Mr. X! Allah, blessed be His Names,
says: exaltation is mine, not for Mr. X, carry all the slain man's sins
(and proceed to the Hell fire)!). In another wording of An-Nasa'I: "The
accused says: for strengthening the rule or kingdom of Mr. X"

Today your brothers and sons, the sons of the two Holy Places,
have started their Jihad in the cause of Allah, to expel the occupying
enemy out of the country of the two Holy places. And there is no doubt you
would like to carry out this mission too, in order to re-establish the
greatness of this Ummah and to liberate its' occupied sanctities.
Nevertheless, it must be obvious to you that, due to the imbalance of
power between our armed forces and the enemy forces, a suitable means of
fighting must be adopted I.e using fast moving light forces that work
under complete secrecy. In other word to initiate a guerrilla warfare,
were the sons of the nation, and not the military forces, take part in it.
And as you know, it is wise, in the present circumstances, for the armed
military forces not to be engaged in a conventional fighting with the
forces of the crusader enemy (the exceptions are the bold and the forceful
operations carried out by the members of the armed forces individually,
that is without the movement of the formal forces in its conventional
shape and hence the responses will not be directed, strongly, against the
army) unless a big advantage is likely to be achieved; and great losses
induced on the enemy side (that would shaken and destroy its foundations
and infrastructures) that will help to expel the enemy defeated out of the
country.

The Mujahideen, your brothers and sons, requesting that you
support them in every possible way by supplying them with the necessary
information, materials and arms. Security men are especially asked to
cover up for the Mujahideen and to assist them as much as possible against
the occupying enemy; and to spread rumours, fear and discouragement among
the members of the enemy forces.

We bring to your attention that the regime, in order to create a
friction and feud between the Mujahideen and yourselves, might resort to
take a deliberate action against personnel of the security, guards and
military forces and blame the Mujahideen for these actions. The regime
should not be allowed to have such opportunity.

The regime is fully responsible for what had been incurred by the
country and the nation; however the occupying American enemy is the
principle and the main cause of the situation . Therefore efforts should
be concentrated on destroying, fighting and killing the enemy until, by
the Grace of Allah, it is completely defeated. The time will come -by the
Permission of Allah- when you'll perform your decisive role so that the
word of Allah will be supreme and the word of the infidels (Kaferoon) will
be the inferior. You will hit with iron fist against the aggressors.
You'll re-establish the normal course and give the people their rights and
carry out your truly Islamic duty. Allah willing, I'll have a separate
talk about these issues.

My Muslim Brothers (particularly those of the Arab Peninsula):

The money you pay to buy American goods will be transformed into
bullets and used against our brothers in Palestine and tomorrow (future)
against our sons in the land of the two Holy places. By buying these
goods we are strengthening their economy while our dispossession and
poverty increases.

Muslims Brothers of land of the two Holy Places:

It is incredible that our country is the world largest buyer of
arms from the USA and the area biggest commercial partners of the
Americans who are assisting their Zionist brothers in occupying Palestine
and in evicting and killing the Muslims there, by providing arms, men and
financial supports.

To deny these occupiers from the enormous revenues of their
trading with our country is a very important help for our Jihad against
them. To express our anger and hate to them is a very important moral
gesture. By doing so we would have taken part in (the process of )
cleansing our sanctities from the crusaders and the Zionists and forcing
them, by the Permission of Allah, to leave disappointed and defeated.

We expect the woman of the land of the two Holy Places and other
countries to carry out their role in boycotting the American goods.

If economical boycotting is intertwined with the military
operations of the Mujahideen, then defeating the enemy will be even
nearer, by the Permission of Allah. However if Muslims don't co-operate
and support their Mujahideen brothers then , in effect, they are supplying
the army of the enemy with financial help and extending the war and
increasing the suffering of the Muslims.

The security and the intelligence services of the entire world can
not force a single citizen to buy the goods of his/her enemy. Economical
boycotting of the American goods is a very effective weapon of hitting and
weakening the enemy, and it is not under the control of the security
forces of the regime.

Before closing my talk, I have a very important message to the
youths of Islam, men of the brilliant future of the Ummah of Muhammad
(ALLAH'S BLESSING AND SALUTATIONS ON HIM). Our talk with the youths about
their duty in this difficult period in the history of our Ummah. A period
in which the youths and no one else came forward to carry out the variable
and different duties. While some of the well known individuals had
hesitated in their duty of defending Islam and saving themselves and their
wealth from the injustice, aggression and terror -exercised by the
government- the youths (may Allah protect them) were forthcoming and
raised the banner of Jihad against the American-Zionist alliance occupying
the sanctities of Islam. Others who have been tricked into loving this
materialistic world, and those who have been terrorised by the government
choose to give legitimacy to the greatest betrayal , the occupation of the
land of the two Holy Places (We bemoan this and can only say: "No power
and power acquiring except through Allah"). We are not surprised from the
action of our youths. The youths were the companions of Muhammad (Allah's
Blessings and Salutations may be on him), and was it not the youths
themselves who killed Aba-Jahl, the Pharaoh of this Ummah?. Our youths are
the best descendent of the best ancestors.

Abdul-Rahman Ibn Awf -may Allah be pleased with him- said: (I was
at Badr where I noticed two youths one to my right and the other to my
left. One of them asked me quietly (so not to be heard by the other) : O
uncle point out Aba-Jahl to me. What do you want him for? , said Abdul
Rahman. The boy answered: I have been informed that he- Aba-Jahl- abused
the Messenger of Allah (), I swear by Allah, who have my soul in His hand,
that if I see Aba-Jahl I'll not let my shadow departs his shadow till one
of us is dead. I was astonished, said Abdul Rahman; then the other youth
said the same thing as the first one. Subsequently I saw Aba-Jahl among
the people; I said to the boys do you see? This is the man you are asking
me about. The two youths hit Aba-Jahl with their swords till he was dead.
Allah is the greatest, Praise be to Him: Two youths of young age but with
great perseverance, enthusiasm, courage and pride for the religion of
Allah's, each one of them asking about the most important act of killing
that should be induced on the enemy. That is the killing of the pharaoh of
this Ummah - Aba Jahl-, the leader of the unbelievers (Mushrikeen) at the
battle of Badr. The role of Abdul Rahman Ibn Awf , may Allah be pleased
with him, was to direct the two youths toward Aba-Jahl. That was the
perseverance and the enthusiasm of the youths of that time and that was
the perseverance and the enthusiasm of their fathers. It is this role
that is now required from the people who have the expertise and knowledge
in fighting the enemy. They should guide their brothers and sons in this
matter; once that has been done, then our youths will repeat what their
forefathers had said before: "I swear by Allah if I see him I'll not let
my shadow to departs from his shadow till one of us is dead".

And the story of Abdur-Rahman Ibn Awf about Ummayyah Ibn Khalaf
shows the extent of Bilal's (may Allah be pleased with him) persistence in
killing the head of the Kufr: "the head of Kufr is Ummayyah Ibn Khalaf….
I shall live not if he survives" said Bilal.

Few days ago the news agencies had reported that the Defence
Secretary of the Crusading Americans had said that "the explosion at
Riyadh and Al-Khobar had taught him one lesson: that is not to withdraw
when attacked by coward terrorists".

We say to the Defence Secretary that his talk can induce a
grieving mother to laughter! And shows the fears that had enshrined you
all. Where was this false courage of yours when the explosion in Beirut
took place on 1983 AD (1403 A.H). You were turned into scattered pits and
pieces at that time; 241 mainly marines solders were killed. And where
was this courage of yours when two explosions made you to leave Aden in
lees than twenty four hours!

But your most disgraceful case was in Somalia; where- after
vigorous propaganda about the power of the USA and its post cold war
leadership of the new world order- you moved tens of thousands of
international force, including twenty eight thousands American solders
into Somalia. However, when tens of your solders were killed in minor
battles and one American Pilot was dragged in the streets of Mogadishu you
left the area carrying disappointment, humiliation, defeat and your dead
with you. Clinton appeared in front of the whole world threatening and
promising revenge , but these threats were merely a preparation for
withdrawal. You have been disgraced by Allah and you withdrew; the extent
of your impotence and weaknesses became very clear. It was a pleasure for
the "heart" of every Muslim and a remedy to the "chests" of believing
nations to see you defeated in the three Islamic cities of Beirut , Aden
and Mogadishu.

I say to Secretary of Defence: The sons of the land of the two
Holy Places had come out to fight against the Russian in Afghanistan, the
Serb in Bosnia-Herzegovina and today they are fighting in Chechenia and
-by the Permission of Allah- they have been made victorious over your
partner, the Russians. By the command of Allah, they are also fighting in
Tajakistan.

I say: Since the sons of the land of the two Holy Places feel and
strongly believe that fighting (Jihad) against the Kuffar in every part of
the world, is absolutely essential; then they would be even more
enthusiastic, more powerful and larger in number upon fighting on their
own land- the place of their births- defending the greatest of their
sanctities, the noble Ka'ba (the Qiblah of all Muslims). They know that
the Muslims of the world will assist and help them to victory. To liberate
their sanctities is the greatest of issues concerning all Muslims; It is
the duty of every Muslims in this world.

I say to you William (Defence Secretary) that: These youths love
death as you loves life. They inherit dignity, pride, courage, generosity,
truthfulness and sacrifice from father to father. They are most delivering
and steadfast at war. They inherit these values from their ancestors
(even from the time of the Jaheliyyah, before Islam). These values were
approved and completed by the arriving Islam as stated by the messenger of
Allah (Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be on him): "I have been send
to perfecting the good values". (Saheeh Al-Jame' As-Sagheer).

When the pagan King Amroo Ibn Hind tried to humiliate the pagan
Amroo Ibn Kulthoom, the latter cut the head of the King with his sword
rejecting aggression, humiliation and indignation.

If the king oppresses the people excessively, we reject to submit
to humiliation

By which legitimacy (or command) O Amroo bin Hind you want us to
be degraded?!

By which legitimacy (or command) O Amroo bin Hind you listen to
our foes and disrespect us?!

Our toughness has, O Amroo, tired the enemies before you, never
giving in!

Our youths believe in paradise after death. They believe that
taking part in fighting will not bring their day nearer; and staying
behind will not postpone their day either. Exalted be to Allah who said:
{And a soul will not die but with the permission of Allah, the term is
fixed} (Aal Imraan; 3:145). Our youths believe in the saying of the
messenger of Allah (Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be on him): "O
boy, I teach a few words; guard (guard the cause of, keep the commandments
of) Allah, then He guards you, guard (the cause of ) Allah, then He will
be with you; if you ask (for your need) ask Allah, if you seek assistance,
seek Allah's; and know definitely that if the Whole World gathered to
(bestow) profit on you they will not profit you except with what was
determined for you by Allah, and if they gathered to harm you they will
not harm you except with what has been determined for you by Allah; Pen
lifted, papers dried, it is fixed nothing in these truths can be changed"
Saheeh Al-Jame' As-Sagheer. Our youths took note of the meaning of the
poetic verse:

"if death is a predetermined must, then it is a shame to die cowardly"

and the other poet saying:

" who do not die by the sword will die by other reason; many causes are
there but one death".

These youths believe in what has been told by Allah and His
messenger (Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be on him) about the
greatness of the reward for the Mujahideen and Martyrs; Allah, the most
exalted said: {and -so far- those who are slain in the way of Allah, He
will by no means allow their deeds to perish. He will guide them and
improve their condition. And cause them to enter the garden -paradise-
which He has made known to them}. (Muhammad; 47:4-6). Allah the Exalted
also said: {and do not speak of those who are slain in Allah's way as
dead; nay -they are- alive, but you do not perceive} (Bagarah; 2:154). His
messenger (Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be on him) said: "for
those who strive in His cause Allah prepared hundred degrees (levels) in
paradise; in-between two degrees as the in-between heaven and earth".
Saheeh Al-Jame' As-Sagheer. He (Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be
on him) also said: "the best of the martyrs are those who do NOT turn
their faces away from the battle till they are killed. They are in the
high level of Jannah (paradise). Their Lord laughs to them ( in pleasure)
and when your Lord laughs to a slave of His, He will not hold him to an
account". Narrated by Ahmad with correct and trustworthy reference. And :
"a martyr will not feel the pain of death except like how you feel when
you are pinched". Saheeh Al-Jame' As-Sagheer. He also said : "a martyr
privileges are guaranteed by Allah; forgiveness with the first gush of his
blood, he will be shown his seat in paradise, he will be decorated with
the jewels of belief (Imaan), married off to the beautiful ones, protected
from the test in the grave, assured security in the day of judgement,
crowned with the crown of dignity, a ruby of which is better than this
whole world (Duniah) and its' entire content, wedded to seventy two of the
pure Houries (beautiful ones of Paradise) and his intercession on the
behalf of seventy of his relatives will be accepted". Narrated by Ahmad
and At-Tirmithi (with the correct and trustworthy reference).

Those youths know that their rewards in fighting you, the USA, is
double than their rewards in fighting some one else not from the people of
the book. They have no intention except to enter paradise by killing you.
An infidel, and enemy of God like you, cannot be in the same hell with his
righteous executioner.

Our youths chanting and reciting the word of Allah, the most
exalted: {fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them
to disgrace, and assist you against them and heal the heart of a believing
people} (At-Taubah; 9:14) and the words of the prophet (ALLAH'S BLESSING
AND SALUTATIONS ON HIM): "I swear by Him, who has my soul in His hand,
that no man get killed fighting them today, patiently attacking and not
retreating ,surely Allah will let him into paradise". And his (Allah's
Blessings and Salutations may be on him) saying to them: "get up to a
paradise as wide as heaven and earth".

The youths also reciting the All Mighty words of: {so when you
meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks……..}
(Muhammad; 47:19).

Those youths will not ask you (William Perry) for explanations, they will
tell you singing

there is nothing between us need to be explained, there is only
killing and neck smiting.

And they will say to you what their grand father, Haroon
Ar-Rasheed, Ameer-ul-Mu'meneen, replied to your grandfather, Nagfoor, the
Byzantine emperor, when he threatened the Muslims: "from Haroon
Ar-Rasheed, Ameer-ul-Mu'meneen, to Nagfoor, the dog of the Romans; the
answer is what you will see not what you hear". Haroon El-Rasheed led the
armies of Islam to the battle and handed Nagfoor a devastating defeat.

The youths you called cowards are competing among themselves for
fighting and killing you. Reciting what one of them said:

The crusader army became dust when we detonated al-Khobar

With courageous youth of Islam fearing no danger

If (they are) threatened: The tyrants will kill you, they reply my
death is a victory

I did not betrayed that king, he did betray our Qiblah

And he permitted in the holy country the most filthy sort of
humans.

I have made an oath by Allah, the Great, to fight who ever
rejected the faith

For more than a decade, they carried arms on their shoulders in
Afghanistan and they have made vows to Allah that as long as they are
alive, they will continue to carry arms against you until you are -Allah
willing- expelled, defeated and humiliated, they will carry on as long as
they live saying:

O William, tomorrow you will know which young man is confronting
your misguided brethren!

A youth fighting in smile, returning with the spear coloured red.

May Allah keep me close to knights, humans in peace, demons in
war.

Lions in Jungle but their teeth are spears and Indian swords.

The horses witness that I push them hard forwarded in the fire of
battle.

The dust of the battle bears witnesses for me, so also the
fighting itself, the pens and the books!

So to abuse the grandsons of the companions, may Allah be pleased
with them, by calling them cowards and challenging them by refusing to
leave the land of the two Holy Places shows the insanity and the imbalance
you are suffering from. Its appropriate 'remedy ,however, is in the hands
of the youths of Islam, as the poet said:

I am willing to sacrifice self and wealth for knights who never
disappointed me

Knights who are never fed up or deterred by death, even if the
mill of war turns

In the heat of battle they do not care, and cure the insanity of
the enemy by their 'insane' courage.

Terrorising you, while you are carrying arms on our land, is a
legitimate and morally demanded duty. It is a legitimate right well known
to all humans and other creatures. Your example and our example is like a
snake which entered into a house of a man and got killed by him. The
coward is the one who lets you walk, while carrying arms, freely on his
land and provides you with peace and security.

Those youths are different from your soldiers. Your problem will
be how to convince your troops to fight, while our problem will be how to
restrain our youths to wait for their turn in fighting and in operations.
These youths are commendation and praiseworthy.

They stood up tall to defend the religion; at the time when the
government misled the prominent scholars and tricked them into issuing
Fatwas (that have no basis neither in the book of Allah, nor in the Sunnah
of His prophet (Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be on him)) of
opening the land of the two Holy Places for the Christians armies and
handing the Al-Aqsa Mosque to the Zionists. Twisting the meanings of the
holy text will not change this fact at all. They deserve the praise of the
poet:

I rejected all the critics, who chose the wrong way

I rejected those who enjoy fireplaces in clubs discussing
eternally

I rejected those, who inspite being lost, think they are at the
goal

I respect those who carried on not asking or bothering about the
difficulties

Never letting up from their goals, inspite all hardships of the
road

Whose blood is the oil for the flame guiding in the darkness of
confusion

I feel still the pain of (the loss) Al-Quds in my internal
organs.

That loss is like a burning fire in my intestines

I did not betray my covenant with God, when even states did
betray it!

As their grand father Assim Bin Thabit said rejecting a surrender offer of
the pagans:

What for an excuse I had to surrender, while I am still able,
having arrows and my bow having a tough string?!

Death is truth and ultimate destiny, and life will end any way.
If I do not fight you, then my mother must be insane!

The youths hold you responsible for all of the killings and
evictions of the Muslims and the violation of the sanctities, carried out
by your Zionist brothers in Lebanon; you openly supplied them with arms
and finance. More than 600,000 Iraqi children have died due to lack of
food and medicine and as a result of the unjustifiable aggression
(sanction) imposed on Iraq and its nation. The children of Iraq are our
children. You, the USA, together with the Saudi regime are responsible for
the shedding of the blood of these innocent children. Due to all of that,
what ever treaty you have with our country is now null and void.

The treaty of Hudaybiyyah was cancelled by the messenger of Allah
(Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be on him) once Quraysh had
assisted Bani Bakr against Khusa'ah , the allies of the prophet (Allah's
Blessings and Salutations may be on him). The prophet (Allah's Blessings
and Salutations may be on him) fought Quraysh and concurred Makka. He
(Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be on him) considered the treaty
with Bani Qainuqa' void because one of their Jews publicly hurt one Muslim
woman, one single woman, at the market. Let alone then, the killing you
caused to hundred of thousands Muslims and occupying their sanctities. It
is now clear that those who claim that the blood of the American solders
(the enemy occupying the land of the Muslims) should be protected are
merely repeating what is imposed on them by the regime; fearing the
aggression and interested in saving themselves. It is a duty now on every
tribe in the Arab Peninsula to fight, Jihad, in the cause of Allah and to
cleanse the land from those occupiers. Allah knows that there blood is
permitted (to be spilled) and their wealth is a booty; their wealth is a
booty to those who kill them. The most Exalted said in the verse of
As-Sayef, The Sword: {so when the sacred months have passed away, then
slay the idolaters where ever you find them, and take them captives and
besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush} (At-Tauba; 9:5).
Our youths knew that the humiliation suffered by the Muslims as a result
of the occupation of their sanctities can not be kicked and removed except
by explosions and Jihad. As the poet said:

The walls of oppression and humiliation cannot be demolished
except in a rain of bullets

The freeman does not surrender leadership to infidels and sinners

Without shedding blood no degradation and branding can be
removed from the forehead

I remind the youths of the Islamic world, who fought in
Afghanistan and Bosnia-Herzegovina with their wealth, pens, tongues and
themselves that the battle had not finished yet. I remind them about the
talk between Jibreel (Gabriel) and the messenger of Allah (Allah's
Blessings and Salutations may be on both of them) after the battle of
Ahzab when the messenger of Allah (Allah's Blessings and Salutations may
be on him) returned to Medina and before putting his sword aside; when
Jibreel (Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be on him) descend saying:
"are you putting your sword aside? By Allah the angels haven't dropped
their arms yet; march with your companions to Bani Quraydah, I am (going)
ahead of you to throw fears in their hearts and to shake their fortresses
on them". Jibreel marched with the angels (Allah's Blessings and
Salutations may be on them all), followed by the messenger of Allah
(Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be on him) marching with the
immigrants, Muhajeroon, and supporters, Ansar. (narrated by Al-Bukhary).

These youths know that: if one is not to be killed one will die
(any way) and the most honourable death is to be killed in the way of
Allah. They are even more determined after the martyrdom of the four
heroes who bombed the Americans in Riyadh. Those youths who raised high
the head of the Ummah and humiliated the Americans-the occupier- by their
operation in Riyadh. They remember the poetry of Ja'far, the second
commander in the battle of Mu'tah, in which three thousand Muslims faced
over a hundred thousand Romans:

How good is the Paradise and its nearness, good with cool drink

But the Romans are promised punishment (in Hell), if I meet them
I will fight them.

And the poetry of Abdullah Bin Rawaha, the third commander in the battle
of Mu'tah, after the martyrdom of Ja'far, when he felt some hesitation:

O my soul if you do not get killed, you are going to die, anyway.
This is death pool in front of you!

You are getting what you have wished for (martyrdom) before, and
you follow the example of the two previous commanders
you are rightly guided!

As for our daughters, wives, sisters and mothers they should take
prime example from the prophet (Allah's Blessings and Salutations may be
on him) pious female companions, may Allah be pleased with them; they
should adopt the life style (Seerah) of the female companions of courage,
sacrifice and generosity in the cause of the supremacy of Allah's
religion. They should remember the courage and the personality of Fatima,
daughter of Khatab, when she accepted Islam and stood up in front of her
brother, Omar Ibn Al-Khatab and challenged him (before he became a Muslim)
saying: "O Omar , what will you do if the truth is not in your religion?!"
And to remember the stand of Asma', daughter of Abu Bakr, on the day of
Hijra, when she attended the Messenger and his companion in the cave and
split her belt in two pieces for them. And to remember the stand of
Naseeba Bent Ka'b striving to defend the messenger of Allah (Allah's
Blessings and Salutations may be on him) on the day of Uhud, in which she
suffered twelve injuries, one of which was so deep leaving a deep lifelong
scar! They should remember the generosity of the early woman of Islam who
raised finance for the Muslims army by selling their jewellery. Our women
had set a tremendous example of generosity in the cause of Allah; they
motivated and encouraged their sons, brothers and husbands to fight- in
the cause of Allah- in Afghanistan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Chechenia and in
other countries. We ask Allah to accept from them these deeds, and may He
help their fathers, brothers, husbands and sons. May Allah strengthen the
belief - Imaan - of our women in the way of generosity and sacrifice for
the supremacy of the word of Allah. Our women weep not, except over men
who fight in the cause of Allah; our women instigate their brothers to
fight in the cause of Allah.

Our women bemoan only fighters in the cause of Allah, as said:

Do not moan on any one except a lion in the woods, courageous in
the burning wars

Let me die dignified in wars, honourable death is better than my
current life

Our women encourage to Jihad saying:

Prepare yourself like a struggler, the matter is bigger than words!

Are you going to leave us else for the wolves of Kufr eating our wings?!

The wolves of Kufr are mobilising all evil persons from every where!

Where are the freemen defending free women by the arms?!

Death is better than life in humiliation! Some scandals and
shames will never be otherwise eradicated.

My Muslim Brothers of The World:

Your brothers in Palestine and in the land of the two Holy Places
are calling upon your help and asking you to take part in fighting against
the enemy -your enemy and their enemy- the Americans and the Israelis.
They are asking you to do whatever you can, with one own means and
ability, to expel the enemy, humiliated and defeated, out of the
sanctities of Islam. Exalted be to Allah said in His book: { and if they
ask your support, because they are oppressed in their faith, then support
them!} (Anfaal; 8:72)

O you horses (soldiers) of Allah ride and march on. This is the
time of hardship so be tough. And know that your gathering and
co-operation in order to liberate the sanctities of Islam is the right
step toward unifying the word of the Ummah under the banner of "No God but
Allah" ).

From our place we raise our palms humbly to Allah asking Him to
bestow on us His guide in every aspects of this issue.

Our Lord, we ask you to secure the release of the truthful
scholars, Ulama, of Islam and pious youths of the Ummah from their
imprisonment. O Allah, strengthen them and help their families.

Our Lord, the people of the cross had come with their horses
(soldiers) and occupied the land of the two Holy places. And the Zionist
Jews fiddling as they wish with the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the route of the
ascendance of the messenger of Allah (ALLAH'S BLESSING AND SALUTATIONS ON
HIM). Our Lord, shatter their gathering, divide them among themselves,
shaken the earth under their feet and give us control over them; Our
Lord, we take refuge in you from their deeds and take you as a shield
between us and them
Our Lord, show us a black day in them!
Our Lord, show us the wonderment of your ability in them!
Our Lord, You are the Revealer of the book, Director of the
clouds, You defeated the allies (Ahzab); defeat them and make us
victorious over them.
Our Lord, You are the one who help us and You are the one who
assist us, with Your Power we move and by Your Power we fight. On You we
rely and You are our cause.
Our Lord, those youths got together to make Your religion
victorious and raise Your banner. Our Lord, send them Your help and
strengthen their hearts.
Our Lord, make the youths of Islam steadfast and descend patience
on them and guide their shots!
Our Lord, unify the Muslims and bestow love among their hearts!
Our Lord, pour down upon us patience, and make our steps firm and
assist us against the unbelieving people!
Our Lord, do not lay on us a burden as Thou didst lay on those
before us; Our Lord, do not impose upon us that which we have no strength
to bear; and pardon us and grant us protection and have mercy on us, Thou
art our patron, so help us against the unbelieving people.
Our Lord, guide this Ummah, and make the right conditions (by
which) the people of your obedience will be in dignity and the people of
disobedience in humiliation, and by which the good deeds are enjoined and
the bad deeds are forebode.
Our Lord, bless Muhammad, Your slave and messenger, his family and
descendants, and companions and salute him with a (becoming) salutation.
And our last supplication is: All praise is due to Allah .
