“Indeed, we are sufficient for you against the mockers who makes (equal) with Allah another deity that they are going to know”

“If there is no check on the freedom of your words, then let your hearts be open to the freedom of our actions”

VENGEANCE FOR THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH ( A MESSAGE REGARDING THE BLESSED BATTLE OF PARIS)

All praise is due to Allah, He said: (Verily, those who abuse Allah and His Messenger Allah has cursed them in this world, and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them a humiliating torment.) [33: 57] May His Peace and Blessings be upon the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم who said: [By Him in Whose Hands my life is, none of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father and his children.] May the Peace and Blessings of my Lord be upon him and his pure and great family and companions.

To proceed

Allah the Exalted says: {Among the believers are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah (i.e. they have gone out for Jihad, and show not their backs to the disbelievers); of them some have fulfilled their obligations (i.e. have been martyred); and some of them are still waiting, but they have never changed (i.e. they never proved treacherous to their covenant which they concluded with Allah) in the least.} [33: 23]
Yes, they were true, and Allah attested to their truthfulness – we regard them so.

Arabic Poetry

 My soul and wealth are sacrificed,

For knights who live up to their name.

Knights who entertain death,

When the war is at its peak.

They do not repay good with bad,

Nor do they pay harshness with kindness.

Their courage never loses its taste,

Even if they fight now and again

Those dissolute kuffar insulted the chosen Prophets of Allah. They persisted in their disbelief until they insulted the Friend of Allah and the peak of His creation, Muhammad bin ‘Abdillah may the Peace and Blessings of my Lord be upon him. Thereupon, the Muslim ummah awoke and roared out of rage because of the honor of the Prophet of Allah. They resorted to supplication and prayers to Allah the Almighty that He take revenge on them. And if Allah wanted, He could have taken vengeance upon them, but that is the Wish and Patience of Allah so that He tests some of you by means of others, and so that He knows who will support Him and His Messengers in the unseen.

When the heroes were assigned, they acceded to; they promised and fulfilled. Through them, Allah healed the chests of the believers, removed the anger from their hearts.

Congratulations to you, o ummah of Islam, for this vengeance that has soothed our chests. Congratulations to you for these brave men who blew off the dust of disgrace and lit the torch of glory in the darkness of defeat and agony.

In spite of multitude zio-crusader attacks on our ummah – all military, economic, cultural, and moral – except that the severest and the most dangerous are their attacks on our Prophet and religion. By Allah, if we lose the two, we will lose the rest. And if we yield, we will yield in the rest too. They are the criterion of glory and disgrace.

The heads of kufr have realized this after they had been shocked by the events. Look at how they gathered, rallied and supported each other; strengthening their weakness and dressing their wounds. Those wounds have not healed and they won’t, be it in Paris, New York or Washington, or in London or Spain, or in Palestine the legend of glory and pride. Look carefully at their gathering. They are the same who fought us in Afghanistan and Caucasus, in Gaza, the Levant, Iraq, Somalia and Yemen.

Look at it. It is France that has shared all of America’s crimes. It is France that has committed crimes in Mali and the Islamic Maghreb. It is France that supports the annihilation of Muslims in Central Africa in the name of race cleansing. They are the party of Satan, the enemies of Allah the Almighty and the enemies of His Prophets – peace be upon them.

O Muslim ummah, this is a new turning point in the history of confrontation. It has its consequences. Let us not let the disbelievers be more united in their disbelief and insulting the prophets than us in supporting our religion and Prophet. Those are our brothers. They were generous with their lives in supporting our Prophet peace be upon him. So what are we going to do, o Muslim ummah?

Let us support our Prophet, religion and ummah. Each one as per his capability and specialty. This is the Sunnah of Allah that does not change; a confrontation between truth and false until the Day of Judgment. Rise up o Muslim youth in support of your prophet. Be generous with your lives like your predecessors did. Take vengeance for the Muslim blood that is spilled, the honors that are defiled, the Quran that is torn.

Arabic Poetry

O Muslim youth, do not forget the unjustly spilled blood and the vileness of the lowly…

Do not forget the slaughtered among your children, women and the unarmed old…

Do not forget preserved honor defiled by an infidel raised in the depth of lowliness…

Do not forget the Quran torn by blind grudge and trampled on its letters…

O Muslim youth defend your religion, let it rumble in your chests…

Let us refute every interfered creed with a lofty one and the best of manhaj…

Let history witness that we walk on the manhaj of the sent Prophet…

As for the oppressed among the sons of the ummah, they should head toward Allah and pray. Because victory is brought by the oppressed of our nation as it was narrated from the Prophet peace be upon him in an authentic hadeeth. We also call them to a Jihad that has no thorns or difficulty. We call you, Muslims, to the support of the Religion of Allah and His Prophet peace be upon him by silent killing. And what can make you know what silent
killing is. It is boycotting. Yes, subdue the enemies of Allah with all calmness and kill them without any clamor. Exhaust and tire them by boycotting their products. Regard that support for the Prophet and Religion of Allah. We also call you to aid Muslims dying out of coldness in refugee camps.

As for our message to the Western nation:

We have warned you before about the consequences of these deeds that your governments collude with under the pretext of ‘freedom of press’ or ‘freedom of ideas’. The freedom that is always tamed except when spreading vile and waging war on Allah and His Messengers and defaming the religion. As for those who call on to Tawheed (monotheism) and virtue, and contradicts with their desires, they are labelled ‘callers to terrorism’, ‘anti-Semitic’. There is no stronger evidence than the issue of the Holocaust in which there is no room for freedom of expression or of ideas.

Sheikh Usama bin Laden warned you before: “If there is no check on the freedom of your words, then let your hearts be open to the freedom of our actions. The answer is what you see, not what you hear.” But your governments blocked their ears from this address. They became stubborn and persisted in protecting and supporting the offensive cartoonists, directors and journalists. Today, by the Grace of Allah, the Mujahideen have taken vengeance for their generous Prophet. They send a message through this operation to all who dare on the Muslim sanctities.

We tell you once again: Stop your insults on our Prophet and sanctities. Stop spilling our blood. Leave our lands. Quit plundering our resources. Otherwise, by Allah, do not expect of us except tragedies and terror. You will look for peace and stability but you will not find it – because of the deeds of Inghimaasis and heroes of lone Jihad, by the Grace of Allah.

As for the blessed Battle of Paris: 

We in the Organization of Qa’idatul Jihad in the Arabian Peninsula claim responsibility for this operation as a vengeance for the Messenger of Allah. We clarify to the ummah that the one who chose the target, laid the plan and financed the operation, is the leadership of the organization. We did it in compliance with the Command of Allah and supporting His Messenger – peace be upon him, then the order of our general amir, the generous Sheikh Aiman bin Muhammad Adhawahiri – may Allah preserve him, and following the will of Sheikh Usama bin Laden – may Allah have mercy on him. The arrangement with the amir of the operation were made by Sheikh Anwar Al- ‘Awlaki – may Allah have mercy on him, who threatens the West both in his life and after his martyrdom.

He’s lofty in both his life and death. I swear that’s one of the noble deeds. This blessed battle was carried out by two heroes of Islam, the Kouachi brothers Sharrif and Sa’id – may Allah have mercy on them. It was a tawfeeq from Allah that the operation coincided with the operation of the Mujahid brother Ahmed Koulibali – may Allah have mercy on him. We ask Allah to accept them all among martyrs, and bless them the company of the Prophets. The result of the operation was the killing of a number of the newspaper’s cartoonists, workers and guards. By the Grace of Allah, one of them was in the ‘Wanted List’ produced by Inspire Magazine with image and name. All praise is due to Allah for His Tawfeeq and Gratitude.

O Allah reward our Prophet Muhammad the best of reward for a Prophet.

O Allah do not bar us from following his Sunnah and supporting his call in this world. And do not bar us from his company in the Hereafter.

O Allah quench our thirst with water from his noble hands. Do not part between us until we enter Jannah with him.

O Allah support Your Religion, Book, Prophet and the monotheistic Believers.

O Allah whoever attacks our Prophet, mute his tongue, paralyze his limbs and make him a warning for others.

And the last of our call will be “praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds.
