(Hafidhahullh)

Titled:

So Wait, Indeed We, Along with You, Are Waiting

Indeed, all praise is due to Allah. We praise Him, seek His aid, and ask for His forgiveness.
We seek refuge with Allah from the evils of our souls and the wickedness of our deeds.
Whomsoever Allah guides, then none can misguide him; and whomsoever Allah leaves
astray, then none can guide him. I testify that there is no god but Allah alone, who has no
partner, and I testify that Muhammad (may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) is
His slave and messenger. As for what follows:

Allah (the Exalted) said, {Say, Do you await for us except one of the two good ends while
we await for you that Allah will afflict you with punishment from Himself or at our hands?
So wait; indeed we, along with you, are waiting} [At-Tawbah: 52].

O Muslims, indeed we fight in obedience to Allah and as a means of coming closer to Him.
We fight because He the Glorified commanded us with fighting, encouraged us towards
it, and made it the best means of coming closer to Him. We praise Allah for commanding us
with fighting and promising us one of the two good ends, for He has not made us responsible
for victory. Allah (the Exalted) said, {And he who fights in the cause of Allah and is killed or
achieves victory We will bestow upon him a great reward} [An-Nis: 74]. So it is only
upon us to fight and be patient, and upon Allah is the victory. For this reason, we should not
let the mobilization of the nations of kufr against us alarm us, frighten us, or break our
resolve, for we will be the victors in any case, with Allahs power and strength. Allah (the
Exalted) said, {Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties
[in exchange] for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill
and are killed. [It is] a true promise [binding] upon Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the
Qurn. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? So rejoice in your transaction which
you have contracted. And it is that which is the great attainment} [At-Tawbah: 111]. And
Allah (the Exalted) said, {And [He promises] other [victories] that you were [so far] unable
to [realize] which Allah has already encompassed. And ever is Allah, over all things,
competent. And if those who disbelieve had fought you, they would have turned their backs
[in flight]. Then they would not find a protector or a helper. [This is] the established way of
Allah which has occurred before. And never will you find in the way of Allah any change}
[Al-Fath: 21-23].

So if we persist in the face of the world and fight all its armies with all their capabilities and
then triumph, it will be of no surprise. It is Allahs promise to us. {And [you will obtain]
another [favor] that you love victory from Allah and an imminent conquest} [As-Saff: 13].
And if we are afflicted with killing, and our wounds become many, and the storms rage
against us, and our adversities become great, then it would also be of no surprise. It is Allahs
promise to us. Rather, affliction is an inevitable decree. Allah (the Exalted) said, {Or do you
think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those
who passed on before you? They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken
until [their] messenger and those who believed with him said, When is the help of Allah?
Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near} [Al-Baqarah: 214]. It was reported on the
authority of Khabbb (may Allah be pleased with him) who said, We complained to Allahs
Messenger (may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) while he was reclining on a
cloak of his in the shade of the Kabah. We said, Will you not seek help for us? Will you not
supplicate for us? He said, Indeed, from those who came before you, a man would be taken
and a hole would be dug for him in the ground and he would be placed inside. Then a saw
would be brought and placed on his head and he would be sawed in half. And he would be
raked with iron combs beneath his flesh and bones, but that would not turn him back from his
religion. By Allah, this matter will be completed, to the point that a rider will travel from
Sanaa to Hadramawt not fearing anyone other than Allah and a wolf after his sheep, but you
are being hasty [Reported by al-Bukhr].

O Muslims, do not be amazed at the gathering of the nations and religions of disbelief against
the Islamic State, for this is the condition of the victorious group in every era. This gathering
will continue and the trials and tribulations will intensify until the two camps are completed,
such that there does not remain in this camp hypocrisy, and there does not remain in that
camp faith. Furthermore, have certainty that Allah will aid His believing slaves. And rejoice
and be at ease, for your state continues to do well. And the more the nations increase in their
frenzied mobilization against it, the more it increases in its certainty of Allahs victory and
that it is upon the straight path, and the more severe its tribulations become, the more it casts
out the enemies and hypocrites and the more pure, firm, and steadfast its ranks become.

O Muslims, indeed the battle today is no longer merely a crusader campaign. It is but the war
of the nations of disbelief altogether against the Ummah of Islam, and it has not occurred
before in the history of our Ummah that the entire world gathered against it in one battle as is
occurring today. Indeed, it is the battle of the disbelievers altogether against the Muslims
altogether, and indeed every Muslim is intended by this war. And he is obliged to execute
Allahs command to him by carrying out the obligation of jihd for the cause of Allah. So if
he obeys, then for him is good, salvation, success, nearness to Allah, and the attainment of
His pleasure, and if he disobeys, then for him is destruction, loss, and the attainment of
Allahs anger and wrath. Indeed, every Muslim is intended by this war. And he is obliged to
defend the religion of Allah and His Sharah and to support the oppressed men, women, and
children, for this war is every Muslims war. Indeed, it is upon him to engage himself in it in
order to defend his religion, defend himself, defend his wealth, and defend his honor and
dignity.

So prepare yourselves for your war, O Muslims everywhere. Prepare yourselves while being
confident of Allahs victory. Prepare yourselves, and do not weaken and do not grieve.
Indeed, your Lord (the Mighty and Sublime) has said to you about the disbelievers, {You
[believers] are more fearful within their breasts than Allah. That is because they are a people
who do not understand. They will not fight you all except within fortified cities or from
behind walls. Their violence among themselves is severe. You think they are together, but
their hearts are diverse. That is because they are a people who do not reason} [Al-Hashr: 13-
14]. Allah (the Mighty and Sublime) spoke the truth. Here are the Christian crusaders and the
nations and religions of disbelief gathered alongside them, with the Jews behind them all, not
daring to come by land to fight a small group of mujhidn. Each one of them pushes the
other forward in order to get him entangled. They dont dare come, because their hearts are
filled with fear of the mujhidn, and because, by Allahs grace, they were taught a lesson in
Afghanistan and Iraq and realized that they dont have the power to defeat the mujhidn.
They dont dare come, because they know with certainty what terrors and calamities await
them in Shm, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Sinai, Africa, Yemen, and Somalia. They know what
awaits them at Dbiq and Ghouta of defeat, ruin, and devastation. They know that it will be
the final war, and thereafter by Allahs permission we will raid them and they will not
raid us, and Islam will lead the world once more until the establishment of the Hour.

For this reason, they delay their coming as much as they are able to, and work vigorously to
mobilize more of their tails and agents from among the Sahwah, the apostates, the atheist
Kurds, and the herds of Rfid cattle. And America and its allies continue to dream of
eliminating the Caliphate through their proxies and tails. And every time one of their
coalitions fails or one of their tails is cut off, they race to create another coalition, such that
they recently announced the Sall (Saudi) coalition falsely called Islamic and it was
declared that its goal is to wage war against the Caliphate. If it were an Islamic coalition, it
would have declared its support and aid for the oppressed and afflicted people of Shm and
its war on the Nusayriyyah and their Russian masters. If it were an Islamic coalition, it would
have declared enmity and war against the pagan Rfidah and the atheist Kurds in Iraq who
have legitimized the killing and expelling of Sunnis and have spread corruption in their lands.
If it were an Islamic coalition, atheist China would not have supported it and requested to join
it. If it were an Islamic coalition, it would have declared its disavowal of its masters, the Jews
and Crusaders, and would have made its goal killing the Jews and liberating Palestine.

Yes, Palestine, which the Jews thought that we had forgotten, and thought that they had
distracted us from. No, O Jews! We have not forgotten Palestine for a single moment, and by
Allahs permission, we will not forget it. And soon, soon, by Allahs permission, you will
hear the march of the mujhidn and their vanguards will besiege you. They will put their
swords and knives to work on you, crush you with their boots, and completely destroy what
you have taken, on a day which you deem to be far off and we deem to be near. And here we
are coming closer to you day after day, and indeed your reckoning will be extremely severe.
You will never find comfort in Palestine, O Jews, and it will not be your home and your land.
Palestine will be nothing but a grave for you, and your Lord has not gathered you in it except
for the Muslims to kill you, after youve hidden behind the trees and stones, and you know
this very well. So wait; indeed, we, along with you, are waiting.

O Muslims, return to the Book of your Lord (the Mighty and Sublime) and the Sunnah of
your Prophet (may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) in order to learn the reality
of this war and the reality of this Jewish-Crusader-Safaw coalition led by America and
planned by the Jews, and in order to learn the reality of those who stand in its ranks, its
trench, and its camp. For indeed, your Lord (the Mighty and Sublime) has said to you, {And
never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you until you follow their religion} [Al-
Baqarah: 120]. {And they will continue to fight you until they turn you back from your
religion if they are able} [Al-Baqarah: 217]. {If they gain dominance over you, they would be
to you as enemies and extend against you their hands and their tongues with evil, and they
wish you would disbelieve} [Al-Mumtahanah: 2]. {They do not observe toward a believer
any pact of kinship or covenant of protection. And it is they who are the transgressors} [At-
Tawbah: 10]. {They wish you would have hardship. Hatred has already appeared from their
mouths, and what their breasts conceal is greater. We have certainly made clear to you the
signs, if you will use reason} [l Imrn: 118]. {If good touches you, it distresses them; but if
harm strikes you, they rejoice at it. And if you are patient and fear Allah, their plot will not
harm you at all. Indeed, Allah is encompassing of what they do} [l Imrn: 120]. {Neither
those who disbelieve from the People of the Scripture nor the pagans wish that any good
should be sent down to you from your Lord} [Al-Baqarah: 105].

Then, after all this, there remains among the Muslims he who doubts and thinks that it is not a
war against Islam and the Muslims. There remains among the Muslims he who thinks that the
gathering of the nations and religions of disbelief upon waging war against the Islamic State
is not to wage war against the Sharah of Allah and the Ummah of Muhammad (may the
blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). So what level of misguidance has been reached
by he who believes this, and upon what religion is he who stands in this coalitions trench
against the Islamic State, and upon what religion is he who incites against the Islamic State
night and day and calls for it to be fought rather for fighting it to become the priority
while it is taking this stance, fighting all the armies of disbelief alone!

O Muslims, it is upon you to realize that since its establishment ten years ago and to this day,
the Islamic State has been the spearhead in the conflict between the camp of faith and the
camp of disbelief. Rather, it has been the backbone of this camp and its pillars and
foundation. And because the enemies of Allah grasp this well, all the forces of the
disbelievers and apostates in the entire world gathered together and agreed altogether to wage
war on the Islamic State and to strive night and day to weaken and eliminate it using every
means and all sorts of paths. Indeed, this gathering of theirs is evidence that the Islamic State
is the backbone of the camp of faith and the spearhead of its trench. It is evidence that is
clearer than the sun in the middle of the day and no longer concealed even from elderly
women and from children. And no one denies this but a stubborn opponent of the truth.

O Muslims, indeed engaging oneself in this war is obligatory on every Muslim, and no one is
excused concerning it. And indeed, we call on you altogether in every place to mobilize, and
we specify the sons of the lands of al-Haramayn (the two sanctuaries). So march forth,
whether light or heavy, old or young. Rise, O grandsons of the Muhjirn and Ansr
(companions of the Prophet Muhammad). Rise against l Sall (the House of Saud), the
apostate tawght (tyrannical rulers), and support your people and your brothers in Shm,
Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, the Caucasus, Egypt, Libya, Somalia, the Philippines, Africa,
Indonesia, Turkistan, Bangladesh, and in every place. {O you who have believed, what is [the
matter] with you that, when you are told to go forth in the cause of Allah, you adhere heavily
to the earth? Are you satisfied with the life of this world rather than the Hereafter? But what
is the enjoyment of worldly life compared to the Hereafter except a [very] little. If you do not
go forth, He will punish you with a painful punishment and will replace you with another
people, and you will not harm Him at all. And Allah is over all things competent} [At-
Tawbah: 38-39]. And He (the Glorified) said, {Go forth, whether light or heavy, and strive
with your wealth and your lives in the cause of Allah. That is better for you, if you only
knew} [At-Tawbah: 41].

And O soldiers of the Islamic State, be patient indeed you are upon the truth. Be patient
indeed Allah is with you. He is your protector and supporter. So what an excellent protector
and what an excellent supporter. Be patient, for it is only a new Battle of al-Ahzb (the
Factions). And as for the near future, by Allahs permission, their tents will be uprooted, their
plots will be overturned, and Allah (the Glorified) will vanquish them, and thereafter we will
raid them, by Allahs permission, and they will not raid us. So be steadfast, and be certain of
Allahs victory. And indeed this gathering against you and this tremor is Allahs promise to
the believers, for Allah has promised His pious slaves victory after poverty, hardship, and
tremors.

Allah (the Exalted) said, {And when the believers saw the companies, they said, This is
what Allah and His Messenger had promised us, and Allah and His Messenger spoke the
truth. And it increased them only in faith and acceptance} [Al-Ahzb: 22]. Thus, the
believers rejoiced on the day of al-Ahzb, knowing victory was near, as they saw severity and
tribulation similar to what had afflicted those before them. The test must be severe and the
trials must be great, until hypocrisy surfaces and faith takes root, in order for victory to
descend. And truly, Allah (the Blessed and Exalted) supported us over these ten years. The
day we announced the establishment of the Islamic State, the trials increased and the ordeals
became great, to the point that the Islamic State left many of the areas that it had conquered
and taken control of. The earth became constricted for us despite its expanse, such that the
enemies of the Islamic State thought they had eliminated it, and such that the hypocrites and
the sick-hearted said, {Allah and His Messenger did not promise us except delusion} [Al-
Ahzb: 12], and the believing, patient mujhidn said, {When is the help of Allah?} [Al-
Baqarah: 214]. Then as they stood firm and persevered, and Allah made the hypocrites
manifest and the believers evident, Allahs support came nearer and faster than the believers
had expected. The State returned by Allahs grace much stronger than ever before. So
stand firm, O mujhidn! There is nothing in your future except one of two good ends; it is
either victory or shahdah. There is no good in living if we do not live under the rule of Allah
and in the shade of His Sharah. And how sweet a death it is to die while supporting Allahs
religion and defending His Sharah and His rule. Therefore, stand firm! It is either a
dignified, respectable life or a pleasant death and honorable shahdah. Renounce this lowly
world and turn to Allah, for this world will pass, while what Allah has is better and longer
lasting. Abandon sins and avoid oppression. Obey your commanders and do not dispute.
Increase in reading the Quran, in repentance, and in seeking forgiveness. {And Allah would
not punish them while they seek forgiveness} [Al-Anfl: 33]. And when you encounter the
enemies of Allah, seek the aid of Allah, be steadfast, and repeat the statement, There is no
power or strength except with Allah. And be patient so that Allah will support you and make
your footholds firm, giving you success from where you did not anticipate. {O you who have
believed, when you encounter a company [from the enemy forces], stand firm and remember
Allah much that you may be successful. And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not
dispute and [thus] lose courage and [then] your strength would depart; and be patient. Indeed,
Allah is with the patient} [Al-Anfl: 45-46].

My directive to you is to strive to release Muslim prisoners everywhere, especially the


seekers of knowledge in the depths of the tawghts prisons. Be patient, O prisoners! Do not
think that life can be pleasant for us when we have not yet liberated you all, with Allahs
power and strength.

And we say to the Jews and Crusaders, and their followers and factions; to America, Europe,
Russia, and their allies and agents; to the Rfidah and apostates in all their shapes and forms,
{Say, Do you await for us except one of the two good ends while we await for you that
Allah will afflict you with punishment from Himself or at our hands? So wait; indeed we,
along with you, are waiting} [At-Tawbah: 52].
Indeed, our Lord (the Mighty and Sublime) the Knowing, the Wise told us, {Indeed, those
who disbelieve spend their wealth to avert [people] from the way of Allah. So they will spend
it; then it will be for them a [source of] regret; then they will be overcome} [Al-Anfl: 36].

Indeed, our Lord (the Mighty and Sublime) the Mighty, the Knowing told us, {And if
those who disbelieve had fought you, they would have turned their backs [in flight]. Then
they would not find a protector or a helper. [This is] the established way of Allah which has
occurred before. And never will you find in the way of Allah any change} [Al-Fath: 22-23].
So wait, O disbelievers and apostates; indeed we, along with you, are waiting.

Indeed, our Lord (the Mighty and Sublime) the Forceful, the Subduer told us, {Fight
them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over
them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people} [At-Tawbah: 14].

Indeed, our Lord (the Great and Competent) the Glorified told us, {And Our word has
already preceded for Our servants, the messengers, [that] indeed, they would be those given
victory and [that] indeed, Our soldiers will be those who overcome} [As-Sfft: 171-173].

So our Lord (the Glorified) promised us one of the two good ends. He promised us victory
and triumph. But He promised you O disbelievers humiliation and punishment from
Himself or at our hands. He promised you disgrace and defeat, and Allah does not go back on
His promise Glorified is He. And so we promise you, by Allahs permission, that every
person who participates in this war against the Islamic State will pay a heavy price.

So keep waiting, America. Keep waiting, Europe. Keep waiting, Russia. Keep waiting, O
Rfidah. Keep waiting, O apostates. Keep waiting, O Jews. Indeed we, along with you, are
awaiting.

O Allah, revealer of the Book, mover of the clouds, defeater of the factions, defeat them and
shake them. Defeat them and support us against them. And O Allah, send blessings and peace
upon our prophet Muhammad and upon his family and companions. And our final call is that
all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
