UPDATE 9/20/11 9:23 AM: Here is an English translation of the below video message in Russian:
I seek refuge in Allah from Satan, the accursed. In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate.
Praise be to Allah from whom we seek help and forgiveness. We seek Allah’s salvation from the evil of our soules. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. I bear witness that there is no God but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is Allah’s servant and His Messenger. “O you who have believed, fear Allah as He should be feared and do not die except as Muslims.”
(Surat Ahl ‘Imran : 102)I, the Amir of the Caucasus Mujahideen, appeal today to all Muslims and Mujahideen. Today is 10th of Sha’aban of the year 1432 from Hijra, in 10-15 days begins month of Ramadan(July 11, 2011)
We all know that there is very little joy for Muslims today in this world, caused by Muslims themselves. Allah gives little joy to Muslims because we turned away from the religion of Allah.
I appeal today to Muslims and Mujahideen of the whole Caucasus and the whole world. I want to inform you about a good news from the Caucasus: the fitnah that was here in Caucasus, is over. Praise be to Allah, with whose help, it ended. Every single Mujahid of Wilayah Nokhchicho gave Bayah and I’m sure that all Mujahideen and all Amirs, who labor today to elevate the word of Allah in the Caucasus, are also subordinate to their Amir and are under Bayah. It’s a big joy for all of us.As we know, this fitnah was planned by disbelievers and hypocrites. Hypocrites who sat on warm sofas in front of their TVs, to give the impression they work. We, AlHamduliLlah – the Mujahideen and Amirs who were in this fitnah – understood what’s right and came to an unanimous decision, established by a Sharia court. Thats why the fitnah is over, AlHamduliLlah.
I appeal to all Mujahideen of Caucasus, to the Mujahideen in Russia, who gave us their oath. I appeal to all of you: direct all [your] forces against the enemies of Allah. Today, Allah ordered us to do Jihad against the enemies of Allah. We know that it’s our obligation to do this Jihad. It’s our duty to elevate the word of Allah on the territory which the Almighty gave us. Therefore, dear brothers I hope that this news is a big joy for you, because I know that you are true Mujahideen, true Muslims and that’s why you all were doing Dua’a and worried about that fitnah. AlhamduliLlah, it is over. With the help of Allah, with help of your Dua’a, Allah answered at our Dua’a.
Dear brothers, dear Mujahideen, don’t worry, in the future, Insha’Allah, we will try to prevent such fitnah, Insha’Allah, in the future we will try to be guided only by Sharia law. Allah ordered us to live in accordance with that law and to be guided by it in our affairs
AlHamduliLlah, AlHamduliLlah, AlHamduliLlah. We praise Allah, Who took this fitnah away.
And our last prayer is to praise Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. As Salamu Aleykum Wa RahmatuLlahi Wa Barakatuhu.
