IslāmDīn presents a new video message from Amīr Zakarī of the South-West sector of the Caucasus Emirate

UPDATE 2/12 8:33 AM: Here is an English translation of the below video message via the Kavkaz-Jihād Blog (unedited):

A’ûdhu Billah min Ash-Shaytân Ar-Rajîm. Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim, Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil ‘alamin, wa Salat wa Salam ala Nabiyina Muhammad, wa ala Ahlihi wa Sahabihi Ajma’in !
I seek refuge in Allah, from Satan the accursed. In the name of Allah, the Merciful, Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds, and peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and compagnons.


“If you’re Muslim, you must understand that winning or losing depends only from Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, the Creator of all things, the Mighty, the Wise!”
Allah is the Creator of heaven and earth, to Him belongs the dominion, He gives life and death, only Him is worthy to be feared! He created man, granted him reason, He submitted to him the mountains, seas, oceans, and he is happy with it. He granted him subsistence, enriched the earth with various fruits and man loves the sweetnesses of this life! He gave a heart that feels joy, sorrow, love and man saw no sense in living without these feelings.


Nobody knows man better than his Creator, He said: «Verily my mercy overcomes my anger!» (Hadith from Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 93, Number 501). He did not missed anything, He gave everything man needed for this life! And suddenly we see him ungrateful, arguing about the signs of Allah, a stubborn man who rejected his Lord, using the benefits of this life against his own Creator. But Allah said «Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity […]». (Surat Al-Baqarah : 286)


And He said: «O mankind, worship your Lord, who created you and those before you, that you may become righteous. [He] who made for you the earth a bed [spread out] and the sky a ceiling and sent down from the sky, rain and brought forth thereby fruits as provision for you. So do not attribute to Allah equals while you know [that there is nothing similar to Him]. And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a surah the like thereof and call upon your witnesses other than Allah , if you should be truthful. But if you do not – and you will never be able to – then fear the Fire, whose fuel is men and stones, prepared for the disbelievers». (Surat Al-Baqarah : 21-24)


The desire to acquire wealth and the fear of the enemy are two characteristics which are the reasons why the people stray from the straight path. As for those who are dazzled by the wealth of worldly life, Allah said: «And present to them the example of the life of this world, [its being] like rain which We send down from the sky, and the vegetation of the earth mingles with it and [then] it becomes dry remnants, scattered by the winds. And Allah is ever, over all things, Perfect in Ability». (Surat Al-Kahf : 45)


A man who believes in Allah, performs Namaz (prayer), but when Allah is testing him to see his sincerity by enemies (1), who began to fight against him, [then] because of his fear, he is ready to submit to the giaours (the infidels). If he sees that the believers prevail, he says: I’m with you believers, I’m with you. What is the position of this man before Allah? Allah said: «And of the people are some who say, “We believe in Allah ,” but when one [of them] is harmed for [the cause of] Allah , they consider the trial of the people as the punishment of Allah . But if victory comes from your Lord, they say, “Indeed, We were with you.” Is not Allah most knowing of what is within the breasts of all creatures?» (Surat Al-`Ankabūt : 10)
There is no doubt that fear is experienced by all people. Fear is a feeling that Allah has bestowed upon mankind, so people are afraid of Him alone, and [so they] do not transgress the laws which He established on this earth. However the people also use their fear [as an excuse] before those who have only a temporary authority, before the negligible people who are not afraid of their Lord and who decided to replace His laws, by their laws, and called it the “world order”.


For what reasons the laws of Russia are established in our land?! We are fighting against them because they decided that they were “smarter” than the Creator of heaven and earth, because they overthrew his laws, and established defective and fictional laws invented by fools who decided that they could remain unpunished for such acts. They fight against us, saying that they fight against wickedness and to establish order, but Allah said: «And when it is said to them, “Do not cause corruption on the earth,” they say, “We are but reformers.” Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not. And when it is said to them, “Believe as the people have believed,” they say, “Should we believe as the foolish have believed?” Unquestionably, it is they who are the foolish, but they know [it] not.» (Surat Al-Baqarah : 11-13)


O Muslims, o our brothers and sisters, o people who consider yourselves as a part of the Ummah of Muhammad, peace be upon him, we are from among you! Here, there are people who are ready to defend you, by their blood! Why do you turn away from the people among you, who have not recognized fear, and who go to die for the sake of truth, to defend the honor of the Islamic Ummah in violent battles with the disbelievers?! Are you not you tired to invent reasons to blame us, only to protect yourselves from the evil of the giaours?


How many lives they’ve [already] ruined! What they yet must inflict on you, so that you change your minds? You are wasting irreplaceable moments of this life in empty speeches, watching TV shows and movies. You are afraid of the giaours and you want to protect yourselves and your families from their evil, but they already killed you! Their propaganda has [already] subjugated your hearts! You seek the favors of the disbelievers through (2) the wrath of Allah, and Allah will give you something which you aspire. But is fear will be an excuse to justify yourselves [of your submission to the disbelievers], before Allah on the Day of Jugement? Allah said: «Indeed, those whom the angels take [in death] while wronging themselves – [the angels] will say, “In what [condition] were you?” They will say, “We were oppressed in the land.” The angels will say, “Was not the earth of Allah spacious [enough] for you to emigrate therein?” For those, their refuge is Hell – and evil it is as a destination.» (Surat An-Nisā’ : 97)


Yes, we are few, and it is one of the reasons of your fear. The enemies are many and they are everywhere, but if Allah was not on our side, then there would be no Mujahideen – whose aim is to seek His favors. How many times in the Muslim history, numerically small groups of Mujahideen defeated the giaours armies?! If you are Muslim, you must understand that winning or losing depends only from Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, the Creator of all things, the Mighty, the Wise!


Know that the worldly life is just like a glow, it sparkles like a ring. In contact with the sunlight there is a flash and then it goes out. A glow and then it goes out. It’s very quick, isn’t it? This moment (this life) will pass and we will bear [our deeds] on our shoulders, and only imperishable good deeds will be beneficial before our Lord! So, invoke Allah, by saying:“O Allah, Lord of Jibril, Mika’il, and Israfil, Bringer of the heavens and the earth into being, Knower of the unseen and visible, it is You who judges between Your slaves concerning the things about which they disagree. Guide us to the truth in respect of the things about which there is disagreement by Your permission. You guide whomever You will to a straight path.”
A qulu qauli Hada, wa astaghfiru wa Aley wa Lyakum, fa staghfiruhu atubu ileyk, innahu hu al-Ghafur ur-Rahim! Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil ‘alamin!

(1) In other words, enemies sent by Allah to test the believers.
(2) In others words, despite His wrath.

NOTE: The South-West sector is considered part of the Kabarda-Balkaria-Karachai province of the Caucasus Emirate. According to the Kavkaz-Jihād Blog the below message asks Muslims to join the Mujāhidīn and to go beyond the ‘fear’ instilled by the infidels through their propaganda.
