New statement from al-Qā’idah in the Arabian Peninsula: “Condolences on the Death of Shaykh ‘Aṭīyyatullah al-Lībī”

UPDATE 1/19/12 1:11 PM: Here is an English translation of the below Arabic statement:

In the name of Allah the most merciful

{Think not of those who are slain in Allah’s way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord}

All praise is due to Allah the Lord of the Worlds, and may the peace and blessings be upon the most honorable Prophet and Messenger, our Prophet Muhammad, his household and Companions.

And Thereafter:

With hearts satisfied with Allah’s judgments, reassured of His promise, the Mujahideen in the Arabian Peninsula offer condolences to the Muslim Umma generally and to the Mujahideen in the battlefield of Khurasaan specifically for the death of the nurturing Sheikh and the caller and the unifying Muhajir, Abu Abdul Rahman Attiyah Allah Jamaal Al-Misraati may Allah have mercy on him and raise his degree in the ranks of the martyrs, for the Sheikh may Allah have mercy upon him was killed by the Americans after a long journey of Hijrah and Jihad in Allah’s name against the Crusader tyrants and the arrogant apostates, this journey began with his joining the Mujahideen in Islamic Maghreb, fighting the tyrant of Libya Al-Qaddafi and his sacrifice continued so that he participated in several different fronts until Allah honored him with fighting the Americans in the battlefield of Khurasaan, and with the journey of Jihad and sacrifice, he spared no effort in calling to Allah and direction, for he was an Imam for the truth, gathering and not dividing, and seeking to be closer and to make the ranks and unify the efforts, so Allah’s mercy is wide.

And the greatest thing that consoles the Umma in its tragedy is that the Sheikh was killed while he was steadfast on righteousness -we consider him thus- and his death will only be -Allah willing- motive for his brother Mujahideen after him to continue Jihad in the name of Allah and giving all they can to restore Allah’s rule on earth and restore the stolen rights of the Umma.

{And Allah hath full power and control over His affairs; but most among mankind know it not.}
