New article from Abū Sa’d al ‘Āmilī: “The Battle of Badr Nairobi”

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

نبارك لإخواننا الشباب المجاهدين في الصومال ذلك الإنجاز النوعي وتلك الغزوة الرائعة في

نيروبي،مستهدفة اهم رموز الاستخبارات اليهودية والصليبية

لعلنا ندردش قليلاً ونقف بعض الوقفات الاعتبارية على غزوة نيروبي أو كما سماها الشيخ مختار ابو الزبير ببدر نيروبي وقد صدق

لغزوة تجمع بين قتال الدفع والطلب في آن واحد،دفع صائل الكينيين الصليبيين بسبب اعتداءاتهم على الشعب الصومالي المسلم،والحد من تواجدهم العسكري

ثم هو جهاد طلب لأن المجاهدين سعوا الى قتال حلفاء كينيا الأمنيين والعسكريين من رؤوس المخابرات الصهيوصليبية اضافة الى كسر الحاجز الأمني

غزوة تجاوزت كل الحدود، مثلها مثل غزوات القاعدة المباركة،واقصد الحدود المصطنعة الجغرافية والعرقية والسياسية والوطنية والوثنية بكل انواعها

غزوة بصمتها قاعدية استهدفت رموز الصهيوصليبية واحدى اهم مقراتها الأمنية في افريقيا،لا يمكننا ان نحصي المنافع والثمرات،سيحتاج ذلك الى مجلدات

غزوة بدر نيروبي،نعم لأنها جسدت معالم وخصائص غزوة بدر الأولى،لأنها بين ايمان وكفر،وبين تجبر وغطرسة الكفار وتواضع وإخلاص المؤمنين،

ارجو من الإخوة والأخوات عدم التسرع في التعليق على الغزوة لأنها لم تنته بعد،ولا تصدقوا اخبار الأعداء،انتظروا واستقوا الخبر اليقين من اخوانك

الحصيلة النهائية لم تظهر بعد واسمعوها من أفواه ومنابر المجاهدين،التريث مطلوب وتأكدوا أن الضربة كانت قاصمة لأعداء الله وفتح عظيم لأهل الحق

اقرأوا اخبار العدو بعين الريبة دائما فلن يستطيعوا كشف كل الحقائق،لأن الغزوة قد كشفت ضعفهم وهشاشة مؤسساتهم الأمنية والعسكرية على حد سواء

نعم،غزوة بين قلة في العدد والعتاد وقوة ايمان وبين كثرة الباطل وقوة عتاده مع ضعف ايمانه وثباته أمام ثبات واصرار فتية الغزوة وحنكتهم العسكرية

انا قلت ننتظر الأخبار النهائية والصادقة من اخواننا الشباب،هم المخولون الوحيدون للتحدث عن مخلفات وتفاصيل الغزوة وفق ما يرون فيه المصلحة

لا تنسوا يا افاضل أن الأعداء سيحاولون الحد من آثار الغزوة الإيجابية على أهل الحق ومحاولة تقزيم الغزوة وتصويرها لتسيء للمسيرة الجهادية عموما

اكيد ان الإخوة الشباب ينتظرون الوقت المناسب للإعلان عن التفاصيل واكيد ايضا ان هناك تواصل مستمر بين جنود الغزوة وقادتهم وخطة مفصلة لكل مرحلة

أرجو تكثيف الدعاء لإخوانكم بالنصر أو الشهادة والإثخان في اعداء الله،ويقيننا في الله أنهم قد فازوا بما خرجوا من أجله ولن يضيع الله اعمالهم

كتـــبه الشيخ

English translation of audio message from Ḥarakat al-Shabāb al-Mujāhidīn’s Shaykh Mukhtar Abū al-Zubayr: “Regarding the Westgate Operation”

All praise is due to Almighty Allah, the Lord of the worlds, and victory is for the Muttaqeen (the pious believers) and there is no animosity except against the oppressors, and may peace and blessings be upon the noblest of Prophets and Messengers. As for what follows:

Allah, the Exalted, said:

“And when they advanced to meet Jalut (Goliath) and his forces, they invoked: “Our Lord! Pour forth on us patience, and make our feet firm and make us victorious over the disbelieving people.

So they routed them by Allah’s Leave and Dawud (David) killed Jalut (Goliath), and Allah gave him [Dawud (David)] the kingdom and Al-Hikmah (Prophethood), and taught him of that which He willed. And if Allah did not check one set of people by means of another, the earth would indeed be full of mischief. But Allah is full of bounty to the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists)

And the Messenger of Allah, may peace and blessing be upon him, said:

“I have been sent ahead of the Hour with the sword so that Allaah will be worshipped alone without partners, and my provision has been placed under the shade of my spear, and humiliation has been decreed for those who go against my command”

On Saturday 21 September 2013, and which was just 10 days after the anniversary date of the blessed 911 operations, a battle which is among the epic battles in the history of Islam began in Nairobi, and in which some of the Mujahideen Martyrom Seekers have written with their blood. Allah has honoured the Mujahideen fighters to write this epic battle – the Badar of Nairobi – with their blood and to change the course of history and avenge the deaths of the weak, oppressed Muslims.

The Mujahideen fighters refused to accept the invasion of their Muslim lands and the massacre of innocent Muslims and live with such humiliation. They could not accept the persistent theft of their land’s resources which the Kenyan leaders and Western companies have conspired to plunder.

The Mujahideen fought against the oppression of their brothers in prisons of the Crusaders and their apostate allies, delivering a message that said: “as long as our brothers are being oppressed in prisons, peace will never come to the oppressors who are holding them.”

So, we say to them, congratulations and we give them glad tiding of the prophet’s words, may peace and blessings be upon him, when he was asked:

“Which of the martyrs is best? He said: “Those who, when they take up their position in the ranks for battle, do not turn their faces away until they are killed. They will be in the highest dwellings in Paradise, and their Lord smiles upon them, and when your Lord smiles upon a slave in this world, he will not be brought to account.”

In another narration, when the Prophet, peace be upon him, was asked:

“What type of jihad is best? He said: “The one whose horse is killed and whose blood is shed.”

So congratulations! You have renewed the fact that the Mujahideen’s objective of Jihad is deposing the apostate tyrants, supporting the weak and standing in the face of oppression. You have manifestly proven how valuable the blood of the Muslim is and how the Mujahideen take great measures to safeguard the inviolable blood of the Muslims.

Many lessons can be derived from this epic battle ‘Badar of Nairobi’. The battle is a testament to the power of Eeman [faith] and clearly illustrates that nothing can stand against it.

Allah, the Exalted, says:

“You killed them not, but Allah killed them. And you (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) threw not when you did throw, but Allah threw, that He might test the believers by a fair trial from Him. Verily, Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.

This (is the fact) and surely, Allah weakens the deceitful plots of the disbelievers.”
[Anfal, 17-18]

The attack at Westgate Mall was to torment the Kenyan leaders who’ve impulsively invaded the Islamic Wilaayat. It was also a retribution against the Western states that supported the Kenyan invasion and are spilling the blood of innocent Muslims in order to pave the way for their mineral companies. It also acts as a clear testament to the historical blunder that the Kenyan government made when it decided to invade the Islamic Wilaayaat.

The attack has also glaringly illuminated the sheer vulnerability of the different sections of the Kenyan forces, be they police, intelligence or the military, and this was demonstrated by the utter failure that their forces came against when they tried to storm the building that was occupied by the Mujahideen.

Allah, the Exalted, says:

“The likeness of those who take (false deities as) Auliya’ (protectors, helpers) other than Allah is the likeness of a spider who builds (for itself) a house; but verily, the frailest (weakest) of houses is the spider’s house – if they but knew.” [Ankaboot, 41]

The attack is also a slap in the face of on the dwindling economy of the Kenyan government and has also successfully foiled the clandestine schemes of the Zionist Jews in Kenya. It’s a disaster for the Western politicians and their intelligence apparatuse who have miserably failed to save their own citizens.

We tell the Kenyan public: You have entered into a war that is not yours and is serving against your national interests. You have voluntarily given up on your security and economy and lost many of your sons. You are taking an active part in the massacres that are being perpetrated by your military in Kismayo and the neighboring regions. That is so because it’s you who have chosen your politicians, the taxes that you pay are being used to arm Uhuru Kenyatta’s army that is actively killing Muslims and it’s you who have supported your government’s decision to go to war.

Allah, the Exalted, says:

“And those who disbelieve say: “We believe not in this Qur’an nor in that which was before it.” But if you could see when the Thalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers) will be made to stand before their Lord, how they will cast the (blaming) word one to another! Those who were deemed weak will say to those who were arrogant: “Had it not been for you, we should certainly have been believers!
And those who were arrogant will say to those who were deemed weak: “Did we keep you back from guidance after it had come to you? Nay, but you were Mujrimin (polytheists, sinners, disbelievers, criminals)

Those who were deemed weak will say to those who were arrogant: “Nay, but it was your plotting by night and day: when you ordered us to disbelieve in Allah and set up rivals to Him!” And each of them (parties) will conceal their own regrets (for disobeying Allah during this worldly life), when they behold the torment. And We shall put iron collars round the necks of those who disbelieved. Are they requited aught except what they used to do?” [Saba, 31-34]

Now, you still have an opportunity to reflect and reach a conclusive decision and hold your politicians to account. Do not wait for Uhuru kenyatta to bring about a solution to your problems as he has no further objectives beyond that presidential seat. It was he who spilt the blood of thousands of ordinary Kenyans during the previous elections and is today prepared for thousands more of your sons to die inside their country as well as abroad in order for him to prolong his stay in power, please his Western masters and accomplish their objectives. Do not be misled by the International Criminal Court as it’s simply a facade to create further publicity for Uhuru.

There is no way that you, the Kenyan public, could possibly endure a prolonged war in Somalia and you cannot also withstand a war of attrition inside your own country. So make your choice today and withdraw all your forces from the Islamic Wilaayaat, otherwise be prepared for an abundance of blood that will be spilt in your country, economic downfall and displacement.

Allah, the Exalted, says:

“Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people

And remove the anger of their (believers’) hearts. Allah accepts the repentance of whom He wills. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.” [At-Tawbah, 14-15]

And the last of our call is that all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.

New statement from Ḥarakat al-Shabāb al-Mujāhidīn: “Claiming Responsibility for the Westgate Mall Attack in Nairobi”

HSM has on numerous occasions warned the #Kenyan government that failure to remove its forces from Somalia would have severe consequences

The Kenyan government, however, turned a deaf ear to our repeated warnings and continued to massacre innocent Muslims in Somalia #Westgate

By Land, air and sea, #Kenyan forces invaded our Muslim country, killing hundreds of Muslims in the process and displacing thousands more

The attack at #WestgateMall is just a very tiny fraction of what Muslims in Somalia experience at the hands of Kenyan invaders. #Wetsgate

The Mujahideen entered #Westgate Mall today at around noon and are still inside the mall, fighting the #Kenyan Kuffar inside their own turf

Since our last contact, the Mujahideen inside the mall confirmed to @HSM_Press that they killed over 100 Kenyan kuffar & battle is ongoing

What Kenyans are witnessing at #Westgate is retributive justice for crimes committed by their military, albeit largely miniscule in nature

The attacks are just retribution for the lives of innocent Muslims shelled by Kenyan jets in Lower Jubba and in refugee camps #Westgate

The message we are sending to the Kenyan govt & Public is and has always been just one: remove all your forces from our country #Westgate

BREAKING: HSM Press has just made contact with the Mujahideen inside #Westgate Mall. They are still fighting and still strong. Stay tuned!

Only Kuffar were singled out for this attack. All Muslims inside #Westgate were escorted out by the Mujahideen before beginning the attack

They Kenyan govt is pleading with our Mujahideen inside the mall for negotiations. There will be no negotiations whatsoever at #Westgate

HSM Press has once again made contact with the Mujahideen at #Westgate and obtained voice recordings from some of them

They all spoke comfortably and praised Allah to have been chosen for such an operation. The recordings will be made public soon in sha Allah

10 hours have passed and the Mujahideen are still strong inside #Westgate Mall and still holding their ground. All praise is due to Allah!

Clueless #Kenyans should demand answers from their government regarding #Westage, Mwiba wa kujichoma hauambiwi pole

Funny how the Kuffar are quick to cry foul and gnash their teeth about minor incidents, while their military is killing thousands of Muslims

Defending our Muslim lands is one of the foremost obligations after faith & defending against the aggressive enemy is our right as Muslims



New statement from the Muslim Youth Center: “On Abū Manṣūr al-Amrīkī”

In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Korogwe (14/09/2013) – MYC in Kenya, Tanzania and Somalia have been following the recent reports in the media regarding the fate of Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki. On immediately hearing the reports, MYC contacted a senior Kenyan Mujahid in Somalia to confirm the accuracy of the reports.  On 13 September 2013, we received a response that strongly suggests the reports of Al-Amriki’s fate are accurate.

For over two years MYC has been a strong critic of Al-Amriki. In this time, we have campaigned for appropriate and swift action against him in his relentless attempt to divide Al-Shabaab and malign our beloved Amir Sheikh Abu Zubeyr (May Allah protect him for the Mujahideen in East Africa).

While many Mujahideen in East Africa will hold strong reservations regarding the reported fate of Al-Amriki, we urge those Mujahideen to fear Allah and honestly reflect on who Al-Amriki was and who he regrettably became during his final days as a member of the “Muhaajireen”. For those that need reminding:

There can be no doubt that Al-Amriki took Hijra to Somalia to carry out Allah’s work in defense of a land under siege by feral Kuffars supported by their apostates helpers. Over the years, with Allah’s blessings he continued to grow in stature amongst the Mujahideen in East Africa and beyond. But with stature comes humility, a virtue that Al-Amriki obviously struggled with until his sad end. Rather than show humility, he embarked on a journey of self-promotion coupled with arrogance that led to insubordination in Al-Shabaab.

At a time when our beloved Amir Sheikh Abu Zubeyr expected members of the Muhaajireen to unite under their shared conviction of defeating the Kuffar in Somalia, Al-Amriki consciously opted to sow discord within the Muhaajireen. Under the pretext of raising concerns over Al-Shabaab’s battle strategy and its overall direction of Jihad in East Africa, Al-Amriki began a personal, bitter and slanderous campaign against the beloved Amir of Al-Shabaab. With slanders to the right of him and unfound allegations to the left of him by Al-Amriki our beloved Amir Sheikh Abu Zubeyr blessed by Allah with patience and wisdom remained silent, composed and focused on Allah’s work of defeating the crusaders in Somalia.

In true Al-Amriki fashion to maintain his public presence, he sent out protests in various forms to the Mujahideen in AQAP and Al Qaeda with one objective: to discredit our humble Amir Abu Zubeyr and thus proving the “protests” and “concerns” were nothing but personal. Not content with the response and counsel from the wise Amirs in AQAP and Al Qaeda, Al-Amriki took to Twitter to entertain Kuffars and apostates alike with rumours and “reports” about “internal discussions” within Al-Shabaab. In an act of desperation, attempts were also made to influence the Mujahideen in East Africa with falsehoods about the situation in Somalia and the Amir of Al-Shabaab.

In the end, Al-Amriki’s road to self-destruction was culminated with him reportedly saying he had severed all links with Al-Shabaab and Al-Qaeda. Such an audacious statement was akin to declaring he intended to betray the Mujahideen in Somalia. Ultimately, betrayal has a price.

In our tweets and official statements we have repeatedly stated that no Mujahid is bigger than Jihad. Regrettably, Al-Amriki was deluded enough to believe his fame, and the respect he commanded would be suffice to make him indispensible when it came to Jihad in Somalia. It came down to Jihad in Somalia or Al-Amriki.

We ask Allah to forgive Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki for his misguidedness and judge him accordingly.
