On April 24, 2022, a video was uploaded to the Al-Aqsa Call YouTube channel of Palestinian Islamic scholar Abu Taqi Al-Din Al-Dari delivering a Ramadhan lesson at the Al-Aqsa Mosque about the military industry of a future Islamic state. He said that under an Islamic state, Muslims will create their own smart missiles, missile ships, and bomber planes, because missiles produced in the West can be disrupted because of the "encryption" that they have. Explaining that the Islamic nation has scientists and can hire Russian scientists, he said: "Nuclear weapons? We need something stronger." He predicted that the Islamic state would have a powerful military industry that will be under the responsibility of the "Emir of Jihad", and that any factory built in the Islamic state – even a biscuit factory – would be able to be turned into a military factory at any moment.

Abu Taqi Al-Din Al-Dari: "Missiles constitute the most prominent feature of power. Smart missiles. Ships that launch missiles. Bomber planes. The problem is that if we take these bombers from the West, they come encrypted. When you launch them into the sky so that they hit a certain area, the encryption may disrupt these smart missiles.

"Therefore, we must have self-production at the highest level, so that we achieve the desired intimidation of the enemy. Nuclear weapons? We need something stronger. Thank God, we have scientists, and we can buy Russian scientists. They are working for rubles [and will come] for dollars, but they will do it under the rule of a [future] Islamic state.

"Thus, the [future] Islamic state will become a powerful state, with its own industry. The military industry will be the responsibility of the Emir of Jihad. If we open any factory - even a biscuit factory - we will be able to turn it into a military factory, at any given moment. We can produce spare parts there. I don't understand military affairs, but this is what I've heard."
