of the Hijab
I know what I
am doing; Paradise has a price and I hope
this will be the price for Paradise
Sister Hawaa' Barayeva Launched
Martyrdom Attack That Destroyed Russian Military Building
To all Muslims!
To all those who failed to fulfill their duties to their brothers and
sisters in Chechnya,
To all those who waste their time with worldly exploits while Muslims
are slaughtered in Chechnya and other parts of the world...
Take heed of the message issued by a
young Muslim woman who wore the Hijab and was not even 20 years old,
whose final words were: "I know what I am doing;
Paradise has a price and I hope this will be the price for Paradise."
Moments later, sister Hawaa' Barayeva drove a car laden with explosives
through the streets of Alkhan Kala and into a building that was used by
the leadership of Russian Special Forces in Chechnya. Russian troops
unleashed a hail of fire in an attempt to stop sister Hawaa', but Allah
had chosen to give victory to her and to her message. She drove the car
through the gates and into the centre of the building. The explosives
detonated ripping through the structure and causing heavy damage.
After the dust settled, 27 Russian soldiers, many of them senior Special
Forces officers, lay dead. The building used by the Russian Special
Forces was severely damaged, and a Russian army of 270,000 Russians
watched helplessly as a female warrior of Allah drove a knife through
the heart of the leadership of ussia's ‘elite' forces. The massive
damage to the building and the hundreds of panicky Russian soldiers who
surrounded the structure after the attack belied official statements
that only few soldiers were killed or wounded in the attack.
Sister Hawaa's sacrifice for the sake of Allah and the Muslims is a
warning to the unbelievers not only in Chechnya, but across the world,
that the people of Allah will no longer accept the tyranny of infidels.
It is a warning to all those who think they can commit crimes against
Muslim women and children without being accountable for such crimes;
Hawaa' Barayeva taught the enemies of Allah that they will be held
accountable and will be hunted down by the soldiers of Allah; Hawaa'
Barayeva taught the enemies of Allah that the Ummah of Islam still has,
and will always have, mothers who give birth to Mujahideen, men and
women, who will defend the faith and honour of Muslims everywhere.
Will those Muslims who are sitting in the comfort of their homes learn
the lessons taught to the world by Hawaa' Barayeva; will you follow in
her example of unquestioning faith and heroic selflessness? Will you
support your brothers and sisters in Chechnya with your strength,
political and financial? Will you at least remember your brothers and
sisters in Chechnya in your prayers?
This operation has added a new dimension to the guerilla war that the
Mujahideen are undertaking as part of their effort to exterminate the
presence of Russian forces in Chechnya. May Allah increase the number
and scope of such operations, and may He grant His Infinite Mercy to our
beloved sister and martyr of the Ummah, Hawaa, for truly is He the Most
Gracious and Most Merciful, and we do not sanctify anyone above Him.
Shortly after news of the operation spread, Field Commander Ramadan
Ahmadov commented: "The men of Chechnya who are
sitting at home and doing nothing can no longer look at the faces of
their women any more; may Allah have mercy on sister Hawaa'."
Hawaa' Barayeva is the first woman to launch such a martyrdom operation
in Chechnya. She is not the first woman martyr in Chechnya, for there
have been many of our sisters who have died at the hands of the Russian
cowards. However, sister Hawaa' has set a precedent with her actions;
not only has she followed in the footsteps of her elder cousin, the
brilliant field commander, Arbi Barayeva, she has also reinforced the
determination of the Mujahideen to live, fight and die for the sake of
Allah Most High.
May Allah grant His Victory to the Mujahideen in Chechnya, and may He
reserve for them a lofty position in the highest levels of Paradise and
in the shade of His Glorious Throne. May one of these Mujahideen be our
sister and martyr of this Ummah and may her words be embedded in the
hearts of Muslims verywhere:
"I know what I am doing; Paradise has a price and
I hope this will be the price for Paradise." Hawaa' Barayeva,
The Sword of the Hijab.
