    A Letter From A Somalian Youth To The Youths Who Are Sitting

    All Praise and Thanks are due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds and may peace and prayers be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and companions. Amma Ba’d :

    Allah says: “Unless ye go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place; but Him ye would not harm in the least. For Allah hath power over all things.” (At Taubah : 39).

    This is a letter sent by us from the Asy Syababul Mujahidin (the mujahideen youth) to our brothers the ‘Al Qoidun’ (the sitting ones) youth, who are loving jihad but are hindered by their ailments. Sometimes his soul whispers to him to finish university first before setting off for jihad. Sometimes his soul tells him, 'I will get married first, then I will go for jihad'. He looks for a good job and builds a house and then get married. Or he is waiting for a plane sent by the mujahideen specifically for transporting him direct from his house to Kandahar or Baghdad or Dagestan or Mogadhisu... No! and this would never happen!

    Indeed, in all the years that have passed, only a few from the ummah understand the real problem faced by the ummah and a few could grasp the crusades though it was clearly announced all the time. And now, after the war against the crusaders was declared by the mujahideen in all locations, America and its allies are falling into a big mess, hence their strength are getting weaker, and it begins to shake and will crumble down soon – by God’s will. The youths will start to pour out heading for where the problem is when it’s obvious to them the many false claim made by the “suu’ ulamas” (corrupt scholars) and those who sold their dien (religion), and after their government’s conspiracy were exposed as well as the disappearance of the many collaborating “mukhodzdziliin” (the traitors), the mujahideen youth from all corners will begin to respond to the callers of jihad.

    Then there will emerge countless groups of youth who love jihad, however, sorry to say, they only make themselves as the lovers of jihad or in a very clear terminology the “Jamahir” who are giving applause to the mujahideen and are anticipating with admiration their heroic actions against the American and its partners. Whereas their heart are not even moved to help the mustadh’afin (the weak and oppressed) or to join and unite with the mujahideen and the syuhada’, but are content only with equipping themselves by following the news and the progress of the mujahideen and shouting “takbeer” after watching the operations carried out by the mujahideen. Some of them are proud of themselves for possessing a lot of films about the mujahideen in their collection, where they feel such an accomplishment the moment they gather it from the internet. Others named themselves as “sports commentator” in several sports forums, thus they make comments that ‘it is not good and it should be like this’, ‘should be that way’, ‘in this way it would be better ok’.. and so on.

    Forgive me O my brothers,.. I did not mean the factors that have hindered him due to ailments that has caused this dunya to become so narrow for him, while he is always looking out for anyone who would take him to the arena of jihad.

    Allow me to quote some benefits we could extract from surah At Taubah – may Allah accept our taubah (repentance) and yours. There are verses in the surah that are enough to trigger the soul of those who sit around and spur their ‘azm (conviction) to go for jihad and to counter the numerous argument by the mukhodzdzil (who try to weaken the spirit of jihad). We start with His commandment:

    “Go ye forth, (whether equipped) lightly or heavily, and strive and struggle, with your goods and your persons, in the cause of Allah. That is best for you, if ye (but) knew.” (At-Taubah : 41)

    Do you know O my brothers that this verse had been interpreted by Syeikh Abu Tholhah (may Allah be pleased with him), after reading it, he said to his children “I see my Lord commanding us to depart (for jihad), the old as well as the young. Prepare for me O my children!” And he (may Allah be pleased with him) went on to join the Messenger of Allah (SAW) to fight along with him until his death, and then he fought along with Abu Bakar (RA) until the death of Abu Bakar (RA), and then he went to fight along with Umar (RA) until the death of Umar (RA), while all along he did not look for any ailments in himself so as to make him just sit around, thus he crossed the sea to fight until he died on the way and they could not find any land to bury his body in except after nine days had passed but the condition of his body did not change at all. Ibnu Kathsir (may Allah have mercy on him) quoted the sahaabah and the tabi’in in intrepeting the words “lightly or heavily” as rich and poor, busy and free, at ease and in hardship, having sufficient and insufficient needs, in excess and in shortages, riding on transports and on foot. The said verse did not exclude even one person and did not allow even one disagreement, in which position do we belong from those mentioned category of people?

    Then in the next verse Allah said: “If there had been immediate gain (in sight), and the journey easy, they would (all) without doubt have followed thee, but the distance was long, (and weighed) on them. They would indeed swear by Allah, "If we only could, we should certainly have come out with you": They would destroy their own souls; for Allah doth know that they are certainly lying.” (At Taubah : 42). If performing a journey for purposes other than jihad, for trade for example, or for the fortune of this world and the likes, surely they would go for it in a haste. Look at the condition of the muslims today, how many tourists and how many travellers are after the comforts and luxury of this world. The sky is full of their aeroplanes, the seas are filled with their ships, however they do not do the journey for the purpose of fighting except for a small group amongst them while they feel in such a fear, wallahulmusta’an.

    And to them, the people who are looking for ailments and make it as an excuse for sitting around, and who are stepping one foot forward and stepping back the other, Allah says : “Those who believe in Allah and the Last Day ask thee for no exemption from fighting with their goods and persons. And Allah knoweth well those who do their duty. Only those ask thee for exemption who believe not in Allah and the Last Day, and whose hearts are in doubt, so that they are tossed in their doubts to and fro.” (At Taubah : 44-45). This verses show in brief that there is no permission to sit idle and stay away from jihad for a muslim who have faith in Allah and His Messengers (mu’min). Verily those who are looking for excuses are those who do not have faith in Allah and the last day because their hearts are filled with worries and doubts.

    Some of them are becoming fearful of the fitna/trials that might arise in the journey, but we are afraid that they might be of those who Allah mentioned in the verse: “Among them is (many) a man who says: "Grant me exemption and draw me not into trial." Have they not fallen into trial already? and indeed Hell surrounds the Unbelievers (on all sides).” (At Taubah : 49). The biggest fitna is abandoning jihad and staying away from fighting, moreover it could even cause ones to be thrown into Jahannam! “When angels take the souls of those who die in sin against their souls, they say: "In what (plight) Were ye?" They reply: "Weak and oppressed Were we in the earth." They say: "Was not the earth of Allah spacious enough for you to move yourselves away (From evil)?" Such men will find their abode in Hell,- What an evil refuge! -” (An Nisa’ : 97). Take heed O my brothers!

    Allah azza wa jalla excluded amongst the Al Qoidin (the sitting ones) those who are having ailments. Allah says : “There is no blame on those who are infirm, or ill, or who find no resources to spend (on the cause), if they are sincere (in duty) to Allah and His Messenger. no ground (of complaint) can there be against such as do right: and Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.” (At-Taubah : 91). Allah also exclude those who endeavor to find ways to go for jihad in all places, but the circumstances do not allow them to leave and every ways ahead of them are closed, and they do not come back home feeling relieved that they can sit around and relaxed, except their eyes are flooded with tears and they feel very sad because they cannot set out to go for jihad.

    This is a letter from Somalia, land of jihad and ribath, to those who are weeping because of their sitting around, we say to them : rejoice, here comes a way out and the doors amongst the doors of paradise are open in Somalia, and Somalia have become an arena for the people who are rushing and racing forward in the way of Allah. Let’s hurry up. Victory is only a few moment’s wait from now. War against the coalition forces would never have been done until the signs of victory and glad tidings could be seen. Hence the coalition forces are running away and fleeing in the land and in the sea, leaving all their weapons behind to become ghonimah (booty) for the mujahideen, and they leave behind their comrades the murtadeen who are hit by the arrows of the mujahideen day and night.

    O men of Allah in every place! We promised to you that we will raise the excellent and immaculate banner of “laa ilaaha illallah”, and we will sow it with our blood just like our syuhada’ brothers who have paved the way and preceded us in meeting the Lord. We are only a group amongst the many groups of the muslim, we are helping Islam in wherever place it is required. And our Islamic syariah obligated us to help the muslim in Somalia and jihad against the invaders in our land also requires us to fight the enemy in other muslim lands. An intelligent person would never say that jihad changes with the limitations of Sykes Pickot, and the obligation of jihad upon a muslim would never cease as long as Palestine is still occupied, and the crusader forces are humiliating the muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya and all other muslim lands which are occupied by America through its henchmen, the Arab thaghoot. And Somalia is only one of the paths amongst the many paths for the muslim, no permission is given to a muslim to avoid it as long as he is able to go there..

    Our jihad will continue with the permission of Allah azza wa jalla, we would not be perturbded by the people who dispute with us and also not by the people who aggress us, until you witness the dignity and the supremacy in our ummah, or we will be meeting Allah azza wa jalla while in the advance and not in retreat.

    And our closing do’a is: “Alhamdulilaahi Rabbil ‘aalamin”.
