Islamic Jihād Union — “Message from the Mujāhidīn in Khurāsān to the Caucasus Emirate” (Somali)
UPDATE 3/14 8:33 AM: Here is an English translation of the below video message:
Al-Hamdu lillahi rabbil ‘alamin, wa Salat wa Salam ala Rasulillah.And then, As-Salaam Aleykum wa Rahmat-Allah wa Barakatuh, dear Mujahideen of the Caucasus Emirate, and those who help them sincerely for the sake of Allah, with their property and their souls! We also greet our brothers from Tatarstan, Bashkortostan, our Russian Mujahideen brothers and [those] of other nationalities. We, from the land of Khorasan, on behalf of the Mujahideen of the Ittihad al Jihad al-Islami (Islamic-Jihad Union) want to express our support and solidarity with the Mujahideen of the Caucasus Emirate. We are sincerly proud of your perseverance and your patience in this way – the blessed path of Jihad. Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala) says: “And those who strive for Us – We will surely guide them to Our ways. And indeed, Allah is with the doers of good.” (Surat Al-`Ankabūt : 69). In our Jamaat, there are many brothers who were trained or fought on the lands of the Caucasus Emirate. And we know how began this Jihad, [the] Jihad in the Caucasus, and we know what was the situation there, previously. Since then, we are closely following what is happening in the Caucasus, and we are gladdened with your accomplishments and your victories, and we ask Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala) to increase your achievements and give you victory. Also, we grieve your losses, and we ask Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala) that He compensate your losses. The Jihad in the Caucasus is going on since more than 11 years, and this Taghut army, which boasts that in the past century it defeated Germany – under which was almost the whole Europe – in less than 4 years, now [this army] cannot cope with a small army, a small army of Mujahideen whom are fighting for the sake of Allah. The announcement of the Caucasus Emirate, under the banner of Tawheed, by Dokka Abu Uthman, pleased us greatly, just as all other Muslims. This announcement – raising the banner of Tawheed – united all the Mujahideen of the Caucasus. It scared this gang, which now runs Russia, and the hypocrites. And you know very much… what price was given for this – for rising the banner of Tawheed in the Caucasus. How much blood of Martyrs (Insha’Allah), from all over the world, have been shed for it. Here with me now sit a Mujahid, [an] old Mujahid, who is already for more than 13 years in the path of Allah. Mujahid Salahudin (in Uzbek):
Al-Hamdu lillahi rabbil ‘alamin, wa Salat wa Salam ala Man lya Nabiyya ba’dahu… A’udhu Billah min Ash-Shaytan Ar-Rajîm. Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim. Ô brothers, Mujahideen of the Caucasus! We ask Allah to help all the Mujahideen! We greet all sisters and brothers, Mujahideen of all nationalities, who are fighting with their property and souls for the sake of Islam in the Caucasus. And we ask Allah’s help and mercy for you, may He assists you in your endeavors! And by this message, we want to urge all the Mujahideen of the Caucasus and of all nationalities (he mentions Russians, Tarars andBashkirs) to unity and brotherhood, and if you are united and cohesive, then the support of Allah and the victory will be ours! Here there are Mujahideen of different nationalities and we are all fighting against the enemies. And you know yourself that the infidels have gathered here, from all over the world, [they] have gathered against the Mujahideen and they can not defeat them. The main reason [of this], is unity and brotherhood. And we urge you to unity. And if we are united, then surely Allah will help help us. We make Dua’a for you, and also do not forget us in your righteous prayers! As-Salaam Aleykum wa Rahmat-Allah wa Barakatuh! Mujahid Ubaydullah (in Arabic):
Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim! As-Salaam Aleykum to the Mujahideen in Chechnya, the Caucasus, Russia and the whole Earth! I want to make a Nasiha (instruction, advice) to you, listen and heed the words of Allah with your hearts. The Almighty says in the holy Qur’an:“whose words can be truer than those of Allah?” (Surat An-Nisā’ : 122). Infidels of the Earth cannot defeat the Mujahideen, so they came to a unanimous decision: to divide and conquer. But we must be guided by and act according to the words of Allah. And He said:“And whoever holds firmly to Allah has [indeed] been guided to a straight path.”(Surat ‘Āl-i`Imrān : 103).
“So do not weaken and do not grieve, and you will be superior if you
