Speaker: "The graduates of the Abdallah bin Omar Institute here in the city of Tal Afar, Al-Jazira Province, are trained in shari'a law. They are dispatched to educate soldiers on the frontlines. A student in this religious institute goes through four stages. There are three stages for 'cubs' : beginners, advanced, and outstanding. The last stage is for young adults, and upon completion, the students graduate as scholars. We provide the student with accommodation, transportation, and so on, so that the students can dedicate themselves to that great mission.

"This institute also provides the students with physical and military training, in order to provide them with complete training, in addition to their religious education. This way they will be prepared to help this Caliphate."
