ﺑﺴﻢ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﺍﻟﺮﺣﻤن ﺍﻟﺮﺣﻴﻢ
In the name of Allaah the Most Gracious, Most Merci full
ﺍﻟﺤﻤﺪ ﻟﻠﻪ ﻭ ﺍﻟﺼﻼﺓ ﻭ ﺍﻟﺴﻼﻡ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺭﺳﻮﻝ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ

And after: Allah says,


“ﻭ ﻻ ﺗﺤﺴﺒﻦ ﺍﻟﺬﻳﻦ ﻗﺘﻠﻮﺍ ﻓﻲ ﺳﺒﻴﻞ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﺃﻣﻮﺍﺗﺎ ﺑﻞ ﺃﺣﻴﺎﺀ ﻋﻨﺪ ﺭﺑﻬﻢ ﻳﺮﺯﻗﻮﻥ ﻓﺮﺣﻴﻦ ﺑﻤﺎ ﺁﺗﺎﻫﻢ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﻣﻦ ﻓﻀﻠﻪ ﻭ ﻳﺴﺘﺒﺸﺮﻭﻥ ﺑﺎﻟﺬﻳﻦ ﻟﻢ ﻳﻠﺤﻘﻮﺍ ﺑﻬﻢ ﻣﻦ ﺧﻠﻔﻬﻢ ﺃﻻ ﺧﻮﻑ ﻋﻠﻴﻬﻢ ﻭ ﻻ ﻫﻢ ﻳﺤﺰﻧﻮﻥ”

Think not of those, who have been slain in the cause of ALLAH, as dead. Nay, they are living, in the presence of their Lord, and are granted gifts from HIM;

We our pleased your brothers in East Africa to present to you the first edition of series of Flags of Martyrs أعلام الشهداء

[center]Seerah of Al-Akh Abu Obeida Al-Chadi (the Chadian)
– Raheemahullaah-

Abu Obeida al-Chadi..unmatched modesty

He was a shy man..

He grew up in the Arabian Peninsula, there he was pracistising the Deen and he began with seeking knowledge, he was no older than 18 years old.He had fellow companions, he was firm in commitment to the path which Allaah was pleased with them (A wonderful path to the land of Somalia) and this path is a story in itself

Our hero joined his brothers for a number of months and entered into the forum of men

..Indeed, its the Military Camp..

He was may Allah have mercy on him a young man with patience, he would fulfill the military work to the fullest, and he was disciplined in his work, respected and loved by his brothers. Sometimes he would sing Nasheeds to his brothers in the mosque and the military camp, he had a passionate voice

As for his character .. then its a blessing to speak about ..

With the witness of everyone that knew him he was a man of a high moral in character. He used to respect the teachers with the utmost respect and their relationship with him was like a relation like an older brother to a little brother, and he would ask -may Allah have mercy on him- “Whose the most knowledgeable about the worship of the heart?”. This was from his commitment -may have mercy on him- about these acts of worship which many have become heedless about, despite his young age! And I remember a story which clarifies the brothers motivation and truthfulness with Allaah (and Allah is All-aware of His servants) he was marked by his brothers that he was known for fasting in the day and praying at night in the camp, despite the severity of the camp and despite of the efforts made in the night and the day, he used to fast and work until the time of Dhur, he got affected his body became very poor, and I remember once that time in the queue one brother asked him “What has befallen you? You’ve become very thin and weak?” And he use to hide his fasting and does not tell anyone.

ترى الرجلَ النحيل فتزدريهِ وفي أثوابه أسدٌ هصور

poetry 

You see the man slim but in his garments flouts a Persistent Lion

One night his brothers said that fasting is optional (al-Naafila) and preparation is an individual obligation (Fard el-‘Ain) and so you should leave what is optional and perform the Fard. And he was tested -may Allaah have mercy on him- with fungi on his feet because of the shoes in the training camp, he was not used to wearing these type of shoes before, and despite this he dd not stop doing the military work. He was fulfilling in establishing the penalties which came with him coming late to the queue due to lack of sleep and fatigue. The smile never leaving his face. And we record that for him and Allaah is Aware of His slaves. Whoever would see him would remember Allaah aza wa jal. One day his platoon marched forth for a battle that was as clear as the day and the distance was very far and after arriving at the target the brothers started dispatching guards to take time to rest, but our hero chose to collect a number of firewood for his brothers that he was at the service of his brothers and he would cook food for them all despite the fatigue and tiredness. After completing the military work to head towards the center of Mogodisho, and after arriving in the capital our brother -may Allah accept him- joined his companions who he left and he from then will remain on the land of Jihaad and it was a very warm meeting, the brothers were very happy to meet their companion, and there was a link with the brothers and the Front lines. And In Ramadhan Year 1432 there was a fierce battle attacking and retreating, so the brothers in that battle went to new spots, and our hero brother was a Muraabit (one who guards on the front lines) at one of the buildings. The enemy discovered their place so they where targeted by a tank shell then he was hit with shrapnel and our hero attained the Shahadah because of the effects and one of his companions heard before his Shahadah him repeating “Laa ilaha illaLLAH” so it wasn’t soon except that his soul came out .

So may Allah have mercy upon you oh Abu Obeida and may He put you in the highest ranks of Jannat

O Allaah please accept our brother Abu Obeida in Al-‘iliyeen (Ameen)

I ask Allah S.W.T to write for you the best, and that He makes you a resident of Paradise with those who He blessed from the Prophets and the truthful and martyrs and the righteous, and those are the best companion.

Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds.

(بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم)

عبيده التشادي.. حياء لا نظير..
له رجل حيي..
ترعرع في جزيرة العرب فيها إلتزم وبدأ بطلب العلم، لم يتجاوز السابعة عشر من عمره، كان له رفاق في درب الإلتزام قد يسر الله لهم (طريقا عجيبا إلى أرض الصومال) وهذا الطريق قصة لوحده . 
لحق بطلنا برفاقه في بضع أشهر، ثم ولج ملتقى الرجال..
..إنه المعسكر..
كان رحمه الله شابا صبورا يقوم بأعمال المعسكر على أكمل وجه، و كان منضبطا في أعماله، محترما ومحبوبا عند إخوانه. و كان في بعض الأوقات يأم إخوانه في مسجد المعسكر، فقد كان صاحب صوت شجي ندي.
و أما عن أخلاقه..فأنعم به حديثا.. فقد كان -وبشهادة كل من عرفه- صاحب خلق رفيع، وكان يحترم المعلمين أشد الإحترام، كما كانت علاقتهم به علاقة الأخ الكبير بأخيه الصغير. و كان رحمه الله يسأل دائما من هو أعلم منه بالعبادات القلبيه، وهذا من حرصه رحمه الله على هذه العبادات التي غفل عنها كثير من الناس رغم صغر سنه. وأذكرقصة تبين همة أخينا وصدقه مع الله كما نحسبه فقد تميز عن إخوانه بأنه كان صواما قواما في المعسكر رغم شدة المعسكر ورغم الجهد المبذول في الليل والنهار، كان يصوم و يقوم حتى ظهر عليه الأثر،فقد أصبح جسمه هزيلا، وذات مرة في الطابور قال له أحد الإخوه ما أصابك أصبحت هزيلا ضعيفا؟ وكان يخفي أمر الصوم ولا يخبر به أحد.

ترى الرجلَ النحيل فتزدريهِ وفي أثوابه أسدٌ هصور
ُ
وذات ليلة قال له الأخ أن الصوم نافله والإعداد فرض عين فلا بد من ترك النافله والقيام بالفرض . وكان رحمه الله قد إبتلي رحمه الله أن تفطرت قدماه بسبب الحذاء في المعسكر لأنه ما أعتاد على هذا النوع من الأحذية من قبل، فرغم هذا لم يتوقف عن القيام بالأعمال في المعسكر. وكان وفيا في آداء العقوبات التي عليه لتأخره عن الطابور بسبب التعب وقلة النوم . وكانت الإبتسامه لا تفارق وجهه . وكان نحسبه والله حسيبه ممن إذا رأيتهم تذكر الله عز وجل . و ذات مرة خرجت فصيلته في مسيرة في وضح النهار وكانت المسافة بعيدة، وبعد الوصول للهدف قام الإخوه بتوزيع الحراسات ليستغلوا الوقت في الإستراحة، لكن بطلنا أختار هو وعدد من إخوانه أن يكونوا في الخدمة لجمع الحطب وطبخ الطعام عن جميع الإخوة رغم الشدة والتعب . وبعد إتمام مدة المعسكر تحرك الإخوه متجهين إلى العاصمة مقديشو. وبعد الوصول للعاصمة إلتقى رحمه الله برفقائه الذي تركوه وسبقوه لأرض الجهاد فكان لقاء حميما، وفرح الإخوة بلقاء صاحبهم . وهناك رابط مع إخوانه في الخطوط الأمامية. وفي رمضان سنة 1432 خاض المجاهدون معارك شرسة وكر وفر تقدم فيها الإخوه إلى مناطق جديدة، وكان بطلنا مرابطا في إحدى البنايات، إكتشف العدو مكانهم فاستهدفهم بقذيفة دبابة، فاصابته الشظايا وأستشهد بطلنا على إثرها، وقد سمعه أحد أصحابه قبل إستشهاده وهو يردد لا إله إلا الله، فما لبث أن فاضت روحه.

فرحمك الله يا عبيدة وأسكنك الفردوس الأعلى
