In Issue 32 Of ISKP Magazine 'Voice Of Khurasan,' ISIS Spokesman Abu Hudhayfah Al-Ansari Advocates All-Out Religious War Against Jews: 'Diversify The Attacks: Detonate Explosives, Burn Them With Grenades And Fiery Agents, Shoot Them With Bullets, Cut Their Throats With Sharp Knives, And Run Them Over With Vehicles'

The following report is now a complimentary offering from MEMRI's Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM). For JTTM subscription information, click here. 

In a major article in the latest edition of the "Voice of Khurasan,"  an English-language monthly magazine published by Al-Azaim Media Foundation, a media outlet linked to the Islamic State Khorasan Province (ISKP), which defines itself as a supporting entity for the Islamic State (ISIS), Islamic State (ISIS) Spokesman Abu Hudhayfah Al-Ansari, responding to the Hamas-Israel war in Gaza, calls for an all-out religious war against Jews.

"The battle with the Jews is a religious one and not a national or populist one! It is not a battle for land, soil, or borders! In fact, it is a war that is legitimized by the Book [Quran] and the Sunnah [traditions of Muhammad]," Hudhayfah Ansari writes in the article titled "And Kill Them Wherever You Find Them."

"A Muslim fights the Jews because they have committed kufr [unbelief] against Allah almighty, they have fought his prophets, and have held animosity toward Muslims. Had history reflected the Jews only crime to be their killing and insulting of our prophets, that alone should be enough to fight them, even if they had not desecrated Al-Aqsa and Palestine," he explains.

The ISIS spokesman argues that fighting for territory instead of shari'a is not an Islamic cause, stating: "Liberating a land does not mean to free it from one secular government in favor of a democratic one, and it does not mean releasing it from a Jewish constitution only to be governed by a Palestinian constitution, for the laws that govern Palestine and the Jewish statelet are one, they are man-made."

The article appears in Issue 32 of Voice of Khurasan, the magazine's current edition dated Rajab 1445, in the Hijri calendar, which corresponds with the lunar month beginning January 13, 2024.[1]

Following is the text of the article:

"Allah Legitimized Jihad For The Believers And Ordered Them To Fight The Kuffar [Unbelievers] When He, The Exalted, Said: 'Fight Against Them Until There Is No More Persecution And (Your) Devotion Will Be Entirely To Allah'"

"Praise be to Allah, the strong, the firm, and peace and prayers be upon he who was sent with a sword as a mercy to humanity. Allah created humanity and sent his messengers bearing glad tidings as well as warning, for a sole purpose above which comes no other. A purpose that cannot be subjected to lip service nor negotiation, which is to worship him, the exalted, alone.

"The almighty [Allah] said: 'I did not create jinn and humans except to worship me.' Allah commanded his Prophet [Muhammad] if to pursue this command until the time of his death. The exalted said: 'Worship your Lord until the inevitable comes your way,' and the exalted also warned the prophet that without this command, no other deeds will be accepted, when he said: 'And it was already revealed to you and to those before you that if you should associate (anything) with Allah, your work would surely become worthless, and you would surely be among the losers. Rather, worship Allah (alone) and be one of the grateful.'

"To accomplish this command, Allah legitimized jihad for the believers and ordered them to fight the kuffar [unbelievers], when he, the exalted, said: 'Fight against them until there is no more persecution and (your) devotion will be entirely to Allah.'

"With this, Tawheed [Islamic monotheism] became a purpose and jihad a means to it, and thus Islam is the only solution and not just part of a solution. People were divided regarding this matter into groups, movements, and parties. Some wanted Tawheed without jihad, others advocated for battle without Tawheed, while others made Islam a part of the solution mixing it with democracy, nationalism, and secularism.

"Yet some others came to see Islam as a problem and not a solution, detaching themselves from it and avoiding those who follow it, fearing even lifting any of its banners. Very few were those who were saved by walking upon the path of Tawheed [Islamic Monotheism] and jihad in the footstep of the best of prophets, Muhammad, and his conquering Sahabah [Companions]."

"We Recall, And Talk About This Foundation Of Pure, Steadfast Shari'a, And Launch It At Hearts And Ears To Coincide With The Brutal Jewish War That Our Muslim People In Beloved Palestine Are Being Subjected To; With Worshipers Killed And Country Destroyed"

"Upon this blessed doctrine rose the Islamic State [ISIS], and upon this it proceeded, seeking Tawheed, supporting shari'a, rejecting shirk [idolatry], breaking ties and waging war, taking jihad as a means, thus adopting the prophetic doctrine by word and deed, ignoring all doctrines, constitutions, myths, and fables that were opposed to it, seeing only the truth and pursuing it, and seeing what was evil and avoiding it.

"This was the greatest of blessings bestowed by Allah upon the State of Islam. So, it [ISIS] proceeded with a clear vision for its actions, walking steadfastly toward its purpose unchanging despite all the wars, trials, and tribulations it was subjected to and would have destroyed mountains.

"Despite all that, it remains, by the grace of Allah almighty, moving forward on its blessed path, while its wilayahs [provinces] in the East and West of the planet continue with the battle for Tawheed until all devotion belongs to Allah alone, and each mujahid in its ranks is confident without a doubt that should he abandon this world possessing only Tawheed and death upon Islam, they would suffice him as victory.

"We recall, and talk about this foundation of pure, steadfast shari'a, and launch it at hearts and ears to coincide with the brutal Jewish war that our Muslim people in beloved Palestine are being subjected to, with worshipers killed and country destroyed. We all belong to Allah and to Allah we shall return. In light of what we started with, regarding the foundations of shari'a, we take doctrinal positions to support, advise, and speak frankly.

"Our purpose is only for Allah. So, we say, asking Allah for success.

"First: We ask the Only Supporter in his exalted place to accept the dead amongst our oppressed Muslim brothers, women, and children of Palestine. We ask him to multiply their rewards and comfort them. We ask that he spare their wounded, heal their wounds and broken bones, forgive their weakness, and shelter their homeless. We ask that he take them into his guardianship and show them mercy for he is the merciful who knows best.

"Second: The Islamic State's position regarding what is taking place in Gaza is the same one it takes regarding Muslims suffering in other Muslim countries. This position comes from the ties of iman [faith] that unite all Muslims and which springs from the Book [Quran] and the Sunnah [traditions of Muhammad], for the Almighty said: 'Believers are brothers.'

"And the Prophet [Muhammad] said: 'A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim.' These ties are imposed by the doctrine of Al-Walaa Al-Baraa [loyalty and disavowal for the sake of Allah], and it is the strongest links of Islam, an unadulterated foundation of the Islamic creed. This divine creed mandates the support of all Muslims as much as possible, to also include: providing advice to them, as was mentioned thin the Sahih Hadith when is said: 'Advice is religion.'"

"Had History Reflected The Jews' Only Crime To Be Their Killing And Insulting Of Our Prophets, That Alone Should Be Enough To Fight Them, Even If They Had Not Desecrated Al-Aqsa And Palestine"

"Third: The crimes of murder and ugly massacres perpetrated by the Jews against the Muslims of Gaza has been their customary practice over centuries, for they are one of the sects who holds the most animosity to Muslims, as Allah the exalted said in his Book: 'You will surely find the most bitter toward the believers to be the Jews and polytheists.'

"Therefore, Muslims should not expect any less than this, and in this, the Jews of Israel, and the Jews of the rest of the world are alike, for they are part of a whole, and are all kafir [unbeliever] Jews. Making any distinction between them is a lie that has been circulated by the nationalist and popularists. The Noble Quran identified the characteristics of the kafir Jews and exposed their truth.

"In the Quran, they are not divided into groups and types; so Muslims must know the truth of the Jews as clarified by Allah almighty, and they should understand the nature of the battle with them in the light of Quranic verses from the Noble Quran, and not as mentioned in hollow political books and crooked national references.

"The battle with the Jews is a religious one and not a national or populist one! It is not a battle for land, soil, or borders! In fact, it is a war that is legitimized by the Book and the Sunnah, and not through national rules or [pre-Islamic] jahiliyyah laws.

"A Muslim fights the Jews because they have committed kufr against Allah almighty, they have fought his prophets, and have held animosity toward Muslims. Had history reflected the Jews' only crime to be their killing and insulting of our prophets, that alone should be enough to fight them, even if they had not desecrated Al-Aqsa and Palestine.

"But what now that they have done all of that and more? The war against them will extend to the 'battle of stones and trees' and will not end with one state nor two states, as some of the nationalists aim for. Instead, it is a religious, ideological war that will go on until we kill their dajjal [i.e., anti-Christ] under the banner of Allah's Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him. This is what Allah promised, and he never reneges on his word."

"Islam Is What Granted Palestine Its Place, And Land Has No Value If It Was Not To Be Ruled By The Shari'a Of The Merciful, Whether It Was To Be Ruled By [Mahmoud] Abbas Or [Mohammed] Dahlan"

"Fourth: Considering the seriousness of the Jewish-Crusader war and the peril that is being spun for the people of Palestine, the situation cannot be handled with courtesy and ambiguity. Sadness for what has befallen Muslims does not mean they should be tricked or fooled. Instead, we must approach them with the truth that we owe them in front of Allah, thus doing our part in protecting their blood lest it be spilled for the wrong purpose.

"These people have forgotten that Palestine and Bait-ul-Muqaddas [Al-Aqsa] did not gain their status from soil nor clay, but were granted their stature from the heavens, from the revelation, from the Quran, from Allah almighty who said: 'Glory be to the one who took his servant (Muhammad) by night from the sacred mosque to the farthest mosque whose surroundings we have blessed, so that we may show him some of our signs. Indeed, he alone is the all-hearing, all-seeing.'

The cover of the magazine's Issue 32.

"He who blessed Bait-ul-Muqaddas is the Almighty Exalted Guardian who created us to worship him alone. Allah almighty is the purpose and not a nation. For him alone should blood be spilled, and not for a country! Islam is what granted Palestine its place, and land has no value if it was not to be ruled by the shari'a of the merciful, whether it was to be ruled by [Mahmoud] Abbas or [Mohammed] Dahlan, and it will all be the same whether Gaza and the West Bank are ruled by America's allies or Iran's allies.

"Thus, it is sad that the blood of fighters is being spilled under such banners and for these purposes, only to hand over the rule to tawagheet [tyrants] that are greater in their kufr, hypocrisy, and animosity toward Islam than their predecessors. This is what is being discussed now and is included in the Jewish and Christian plan for the rule of Gaza, marking a new period of wandering in the mire of nationalism and populism, while distancing themselves from the light of the shari'a that would please Allah."

"O Palestinian Fighter: Simply Fighting The Jews Does Not Put You On The Right Path Or The Right Creed"; "You Have Tested Them For 17 Years And They Did Not Enforce Shari'a For A Single Hour On A Given Day"

"O Palestinian fighter: Simply fighting the Jews does not put you on the right path or the right creed. The Jews have been fought by communist fighters, populist fighters, and nationalist fighters. All of them fought the Jews for years in many rounds. Did their battles lead to the upholding of Allah's word and enforcing his shari'a? Was this even ever considered as a purpose in their plans? Is it being considered in your leaders' plans today?

"You have tested them for 17 years and they did not enforce shari'a for a single hour on a given day. In fact, they gave up shari'a and replaced it with its opposite. They did not apply it, in degrees, as they claimed, nor did they make the struggle about Islam as they publicized. Instead, they took the struggle back to what it was, about a country and its borders and nothing more. It was never for the purpose for which Allah sent his messengers, peace be upon them, and it was not for what Allah's Messenger and his noble Sahabah [Companions] fought for.

"O fighter: Know that Allah only commanded you to fight for his sake, and a fight for his sake can only be in the light of the divine shari'a, establishing its rule and lifting its banner. The fight cannot be for national legitimacy, and the kufr covenants of the United Nations.

"Listen O fighter, for I advise you honestly as you are exposed to death at every moment. It is time for you to adjust your path and fight the Jews under the rule of the heavens and not those of earth, in the shade of Allah's shari'a and not the laws of mankind, as our Prophet Muhammad and fought before us, and as [the first four caliphs of Islam] Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali, may Allah be pleased with them, fought: O Allah, when we accomplish it, bear witness for us. O Allah, when we accomplish it, bear witness for us. O Allah, when we accomplish it, bear witness for us."

"A Land Not Ruled By Islamic Shari'a Is Not Liberated Even If All Jews And Invaders Leave It; In Fact, It Is Still A Captive Of Kufr Laws"; "Forging An Alliance With The Rafidah [Shi'ites] Is A Mistake Made By The [Muslim] Brotherhood Since They Were Bewitched By The Shirk [Polytheism] Of The Iranian Revolution"

"Fifth: As for the calls to fight for the liberation of the land, this interpretation of liberation itself requires liberation. Liberating a land does not mean to free it from one secular government in favor of a democratic one, and it does not mean releasing it from a Jewish constitution only to be governed by a Palestinian constitution, for the laws that govern Palestine and the Jewish statelet are one, they are man-made, and all such governments are alike to the almighty Allah.

"A land not ruled by Islamic shari'a is not liberated even if all Jews and invaders leave it. In fact, it is still a captive of kufr laws, and international jahiliyyah codes, which have dominated the press releases and declarations of the Palestinian leaders' factions, as they repeatedly assure, at every opportunity, that their resistance is condoned by jahiliyyah covenants. As one listens to them, he is inclined to believe that the Prophet Muhammad was sent with international covenants and not with divine shari'a, may Allah protect him it from such.

"Sixth: Forging an alliance with the Rafidah [rejectionist, a pejorative term for Shi'ites]  is a mistake made by the [Muslim] Brotherhood since they were bewitched by the shirk [polytheism] of the Iranian Revolution. This bewitchment reached its peak in the last few years and was manifested by the Palestinian factions throwing themselves into Iran's lap and announcing what they called 'The Axis of Resistance' and 'The Al-Quds Axis.'

"In doing so, the Palestinian factions allowed Iran to take center stage on the Palestinian scene, making them appear like the saviors and defenders of Palestine. Thereafter, the speeches of those affiliated with the Palestinian military started to constantly thank the Iranian militias in Lebanon, Yemen, and Iraq even though they had abandoned them militarily and on the field, something which has been acknowledged by analysts and observers.

"The maneuvers of Hizb ash-Shaytan [Party of Satan] and those of the rest of the Iranian militias were no more than a completion of the Rafidah project, which will end with Palestine establishing convoys of shirk, self-slapping, and wailing on the streets of Al-Quds [Jerusalem], cursing of the women of the Messenger of Allah and making takfir [the practice of declaring a particular Muslim to be an unbeliever] on the Sahabah from the pulpit of Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa."

"This Most Recent Attack On Gaza Has Exposed This Fictitious Axis [Axis Of Resistance], Showing That Iran Built It To Serve Its Own Objectives"; "[Iranian Shi'ites'] Expansion Plans, Their Projects And Their Plots Against Muslims Are No Less Dangerous And Spiteful Than Those Of The Jews Or Crusaders"

"This most recent attack on Gaza has exposed this fictitious axis [Axis of Resistance], showing that Iran built it to serve its own objectives, with its primary and only goal being to immerse the Palestinian factions into a proxy war on Iran's behalf and not vice versa, and this is what happened. Iran and its party were spared from a deadly battle which Gaza handled alone with the blood of its women and children – we belong to Allah and to him we shall return. The Rafidah's history is witness to the magnitude of their animosity and treachery toward Muslims since the days of In Saba to Ibn al-Alqami and did not end with al-Khomeini.

"Furthermore, their recent past is full of crimes against the Muslims in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen.

In fact, they have an especially dark history with the Palestinians, for their crimes in Iraq, against the Palestinian refugees, is well-known and documented, while the crimes of the Rafidah militias in Lebanon, such as Harakat Amal and others, against the Palestinians in Lebanon lingers in the mind, and the massacres of the Qassim militias in the Yarmouk camp is an example for all to see.

"So, if this is the Rafidah's history with the Muslims and the Palestinians, the present is not going to be better or less bloody. The Rafidah have waged war upon Islam past and present. Their expansion plans, their projects and their plots against Muslims are no less dangerous and spiteful than those of the Jews or Crusaders, even if the Jews dream of a state that extends from the Nile to the Euphrates, the Rafidah dream of a Rafidah Crescent wider than that which would swallow up the lands and capitals of Muslims from Beirut to Tehran, and even farther!

"They have an eye on the Arabian Peninsula and the Gulf. They have come, moved by years of grievances and resentments, to reclaim their obsolete Farsi state. To the Rafidah, Al-Quds is no more than a wave they can ride in order to arrive in Muslim countries and complete their treacherous projects that can only be obscure to idiots. So, can a sane person hope for rescue from the likes of them?

"Indeed, how can a sensible person accept someone who insults his mother's honor and curses her day and night! How can a person agree to be part of an axis with the likes of them? A sensible person would rush to disavow himself from these groups and axes just based on this alone 'But those who were blind in this world, will be blind in the hereafter, and most astray from the Path.'

"Seventh: The war against Gaza has again revealed the truth about the Arab tawagheet [tyrant rulers] who rule over Muslim lands, in Egypt, Jordan Lebanon, the Gulf countries and others, that they are part of the Jewish-Crusader war against Muslims. They are not only their allies in the war against Gaza but have been for years in their previous wars against Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq, Sham, and others.

"Allah almighty identified and determined the law about these people when he said: 'O believers! Take neither Jews nor Christians as guardians; they are guardians of each other. Whoever does so will be counted as one of them. Surely Allah does not guide the wrong-doing people.' The Arab governments and militaries that are allied with and loyal to the Jews and Christians are one with them and fighting them in jihad is an obligation upon Muslims exactly like fighting the Jews and Christians."

"Collectively Fighting All Of Those Is What Will Pave The Way To The Defining Battle With The Jews And In Which The Jews Will Find No One To Protect Them Or Behind Whom They Can Hide Except The Trees And Stones"

"In fact, we assert that, today, the battle with the Jews today is really a battle with the allies of the Jews more so than with the Jews themselves. This is affirmed by the latest chapters of war they launched on Gaza, and how the acquiescence of the murtad [apostate] Arab government fell as heavily upon the people of Gaza as did the bombs and American rockets.

"This is why the shari'a solution resides in fighting against all those people as they unite and ally against Muslims, who also must unite and fight them all together in response to Allah Almighty's command: 'And fight against the disbelievers collectively as they fight against you collectively. And know that Allah is with the righteous who fear Him.'

"Collectively fighting all of those is what will pave the way to the defining battle with the Jews and in which the Jews will find no one to protect them or behind whom they can hide except the trees and stones after, Allah willing, Muslims eliminate all their allies among the Arabs and Westerners. This is the map of the war that the mujahideen recognized early on and have been marching toward, because words must be matched with deeds.

"Starting with our shari'a obligation to support our Muslim brothers wherever they may be, including Palestine, and in light of our faith that the battle is with the Jews and their allies in every place, the Islamic State [ISIS] calls to action its soldiers specifically, and all Muslims eager to support the oppressed generally, to target the Jews, Crusaders and their criminal allies in every spot on the earth and under every sky."

"Come At Them From Every Door, Kill Them By The Worst Of Means, Turn Their Gatherings And Celebrations Into Bloody Massacres"; "Let Them Know That Their Crimes In Palestine, Iraq, Sham, And Other Muslim Countries Are Being Retaliated For In Their Homes In Washington, Paris, London, Rome, And Other Kaffir Lands"

"O lions who are eager to avenge your honor, religion and brothers, O protective muwahideen [monotheists], we call you to action today, to reenergize your activities, and to bring to life the blessed attacks in the heart of the Jews and Christians' homelands, similar to those that had cost them big losses sending them into a spiral of terror and anticipation.

"Lions of Islam: Chase your preys whether Jewish, Christian or their allies, on the streets and roads of America, Europe, and the world. Break into their homes, kill them and steal their peace of mind by any means you can lay hands on. Understand that you are the arm of the Islamic State hitting in the kuffar homelands, and are avenging the Muslims in Palestine, Iraq, Sham, and other Muslim countries.

"Solidify your plans and diversify the attacks: detonate explosives, burn them with grenades and fiery agents, shoot them with bullets, cut their throats with sharp knives, and run them over with vehicles. A sincere person will not lack the means to draw blood from the hearts of the Jews, the Christians, and their allies, and thus ease the suffering in the hearts of the believers.

"Come at them from every door, kill them by the worst of means, turn their gatherings and celebrations into bloody massacres, do not distinguish between a civilian kafir, and a military one, for they are all kuffar and the ruling against them is one.

"The armies of the Jews and Crusaders are indiscriminately hammering Muslim countries killing civilians and soldiers alike. They bomb without mercy, kill without hesitation. Let them know that their crimes in Palestine, Iraq, Sham, and other Muslim countries are being retaliated for in their homes in Washington, Paris, London, Rome, and other Kaffir lands.

"O angry lions: Your Ummah today is injured and hurting, battered by wounds the last of which was Palestine. Rush and compete to ease its suffering, wipe its tears, and bandage its wounds for this is a preferred act that will bring you closer to Allah almighty. It is an obligation now, and is the fruit of Tawheed, it is the epitome of al-Wala al-Bara, and the best of jihads."

"Support Your Brothers With Your Wealth And Gift Your Lives: 'Who Is It That Will Lend To Allah A Good Loan Which Allah Will Multiply (Many Times Over For Them)'; We Are More Deserving Than The Crusader, Secular Aid Agencies"

"Intentionally seek easy targets before hard ones, civilian targets before military one, religious targets like synagogues and churches before others, for this will satisfy the soul and will demonstrate the characteristics of the battle, as our battle with them is a religious one and we kill them wherever we come upon them in response to Allah almighty's command.

"We also remind people to spend for the sake of Allah, and to send financial support to those who deserve it in Muslim lands that are being subjected to wars and calamities but do so using safe secure means. Support your brothers with your wealth and gift your lives: 'Who is it that will lend to Allah a good loan which Allah will multiply (many times over for them).' We are more deserving than the Crusader, secular aid agencies that only provide crumbs in order to further their filthy projects. The exalted [Allah] said: 'The disbelievers from the people of the Book and the polytheists would not want you to receive any blessing from your Lord.'

"Before we conclude, we deliver to you a request from Emir-ul-Momineen, may Allah protect him: 'He delivers his salaam to you and entrusts you with fearing Allah in private as much as in public, to lean into Allah and engage in deeds by which you get closer to him, most prominent of these is battling Allah's enemies, and subjugating them.

"'This is the best and highest of deeds. He urges you to support the oppressed Muslims in Gaza from wherever you are, on every land and under any sky. People of kufr are one, and today they are firing at us from one bow. The hatred and evil that were held in their hearts are now dear and in the open; so there is no excuse for those who are lagging behind in supporting their brothers after all these obvious crimes.' This is the end of his words, may Allah protect him.

"To the brave soldiers of the Islamic State who have patiently borne a lot in support of their religion and the uplifting of their Lord's word, and we specifically address the captives who are patient behind bars, exalt in the glad tidings from your Lofty Lord as outlined in his Book: 'And those who shun the worship of false gods, turning to Allah (alone), will have glad tidings. So give glad tidings to my servants (O Prophet).'"

"O Soldiers Of The Khilafah, We Consider You To Still Be On The Path Of Allah Worship; So, Bite Into It With Your Molars, And Hold On To It In Life And Death, When Strong And When Weak, In Cities, In The Villages, Deserts, And Wastelands"

"We congratulate you on these divine glad tidings and believe you took on these wars and difficulties in keeping with the highest of goals: which is to single out Allah alone with worship, and to avoid the worship of tawagheet. We consider you to have won the battle, and attained worship, which is the level for which Allah praised his Prophet Muhammad in al-Israa wal-Miraj when he said: 'Glory be to the one who took his servant (Muhammad) by night from the sacred mosque to the farthest mosque whose surroundings we have blessed, so that we may show him some of Our signs. Indeed, he alone is the all-hearing. all-seeing.'

"In these noble verses of kindness and miracles that delight the believer's ears and quenches their thirst, for Allah almighty started them with a position of exaltation and glorification of his majestic self, and associated with that position his prophet Muhammad honoring him with the highest of ranks of worship, and the most honorable of the stages of processions, accompanied by he who was entrusted with the revelation taking his procession from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al-Aqsa and from there into the heavens.

A page from the magazine about the January 3, 2024, attacks in Kerman, Iran

"In this is a clear nod to those seeking to liberate Al-Jazira [i.e., the Arabian Peninsula] and Bait-ul-Muqaddas [Jerusalem], that there in no way to walk in as conquerors except through the gate or servitude to Allah and no other. He who wants to be a conqueror of Bilad Al-Haramain [Mecca and Medina], and the first of the two Qiblas [the direction toward which a Muslim turns to pray in Islam] must adhere to the threshold of worship to Allah which includes loyalty to all Muslims and disavowal of all kuffar until there is no more oppression and the religion belongs to Allah alone.

"O soldiers of the Khilafah [caliphate], we consider you to still be on the path of Allah worship. So, bite into it with your molars, and hold on to it in life and death, when strong and when weak, in cities, in the villages, deserts, and wastelands. Live and die as servants to Allah for he will be with you and will not forget your deeds. O Allah, grant victory to your worshipers the mujahideen who are fighting for your cause, in support of your deen [religion], and to uphold your word.

"Oh Allah, bring down your wrath on your enemies and unleash your soldiers upon them... the iniquity of the kuffar. O Allah deliver guidance to Muslims and return them to you in the best of conditions. O Allah, grant us what is good in Dunya [material world] and in the akhirah [hereafter] and protect us from the torment of the hellfire. Glory be to you O Lord, the Lord of honor, and peace be upon the Messengers, and all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all creation."
