Usama is Alive!!!
Sheikh Husain b. Mahmoud
Translated by the Ansarullah English Team
Syed Qutb, may Allah have mercy on him, said:
Not all words reach the hearts of others – moving, composing, and encouraging them. It is only those words which are soaked with blood, because they nourish the hearts of people who are living…
All words which have lived, continue to nourish people’s hearts.
People given the gift of the pen can accomplish much indeed, but only with one condition: that they themselves die so that their ideas live on, off their flesh and blood… that they say what they believe to be the truth, and that they sacrifice their blood for the sake of speaking that truth.
Indeed our ideas and words remain as lifeless corpses… until we die in their cause… after which they spring to life… and live forever amongst the living. (Dirasat Islamiyyah, Syed Qutb)
Poor wretched America. Poor wretched Obama. How ignorant are these infidels who have reduced Islam, Jihad and Islamic terrorism to Usama. The Christians had full right to dance in front of the White House, and Netanyahu, Peres, Mofaz, Levni, Bush, Brown, and the rest of the Zionists had full right to dance to the tunes of this temporary state of drunken stupor, which will soon become a chronic migraine. Why should they not celebrate, while Allah Most High described those who are severe against the infidels, that:
(يُعْجِبُ الزُّرَّاعَ لِيَغِيظَ بِهِمُ الْكُفَّارَ)
It fills the sowers with wonder and delight, to fill the infidels with rage at them. (Fat’h: 29)
Indeed Usama has filled them with rage for a long while.
Let the Islamic world see the Jews and Christians dance together, and let those who wish to join them do so, from those who claim to have some affiliation with Islam, for no doubt the joy of the Jews and Christians is their joy as well. A victory of the infidels from the Jews and Christians is a victory for the apostates without doubt. But we say to them… is this a victory?
::: ستبدي لك الأيام ماكنت جاهلاً … ويأتيك بالأخبار مالم تزوّد :::
Time will tell what you use to be ignorant
And you will come to know of things which you did not prepare for.
Hasan Al Banna was killed, and America danced with joy, but in this infidel American drunken stupor was born the leader of the martyrs of the previous century, Syed Qutb, may Allah have mercy on him (this is how we reckon him, and Allah is the Best of Reckoners), who was himself in America at that time and saw their the celebrated state of drunkenness and joy at his killing. Syed Qutb, may Allah have mercy on him, was far removed from any Islamic sentiment. It was only a few years before he turned the world upside down over America and its followers.
Usama dismounted his stallion after having killed thousands of Americans, after rubbing America’s face in the dirt, and after devastating America, economically, politically and militarily. And before him, his brothers demolished the Soviet Union and turned it into Russia. He did not dismount until he left behind chivalrous men who will make the bastards of America and the West forget all about the good old days of Usama, for indeed the Mujahideen have made a firm determination to blowup the ground underneath every infidel on this earth.
We say to Obama: we will not cry over Usama. We will not cry over his death. We will accept no condolences for him. We will not eulogize him. We will leave to you celebrate for a few days, and then after it we will continue our Islamic war against infidelity. However, it will not be a war like that of the past. Glad tidings for what’s coming to you and your slaves in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Europe. The infidels should not sigh in relief, but rather, sound intellect would say to mute their breaths themselves willingly, or unwillingly by the Mujahideen.
We do not cry over our dead, you son of an infidel woman! But you surely will cry over yours. And the likes of Usama, you liar, is not killed by a few men, nor is the house of a person who is killed by a shot in the head razen to the ground by missiles and his face filled with shrapnel. Usama has forced you to lie, even after his death, and your claim that no American soldier has died is only a rejection of those who did. This is not something dishonorable for Usama, as you may think, as the entire world knows well that Usama does not leave life without some payback. If you killed him face to face, he has sped the journey of some of your troops to Hell, and if not, you struck the house from afar with your aircrafts as you did with Zarqawi, the body of whom you could not dare approach until hours after his death, may Allah have mercy on him and accept him among the martyrs. And if you were too cowardly to meet him face to face on the battlefield and were forced to strike his house while he was with his family, then at least you could have spun a good tale! But we excuse you, as are the likes of Usama killed by you?! Indeed we are a nation who build a lofty fortress with the skulls of its chivalrous men. Whenever a man dies in war, the fortress growers even higher, remaining ever so lofty and elevated!
Usama is one man in the Ummah of Islam, and the Ummah of Islam is fertile – it will never grow barren. This Ummah will remain victorious upon the truth, until the last of them will fight the false Messiah. It is the Mujahidoon who made the history of the “post September” era, and it is the Americans today who made the history of the “post Usama” era. Although it took them almost ten years and more than a trillion dollars to reach Usama, the blows of the Mujahideen will be much quicker and harder.
Usama was always alive, and he is still alive. The likes of Usama can never die, as death is written for enslaved souls. As for free men who await the calls of Jihad here and there, searching for the places where they may meet their fate, the life of the Barzakh is their temporary life after which they proceed to the everlasting life. So the case for them is as such – a temporary stage, not the death which others run from.
The Americans killed Abdullah Azzam, may Allah have mercy on him and accept him, and Usama arose after him. They attacked Iraq, and Zarqawi arose to smite their necks, and after him Al-Muhajir and Baghdadi. They were killed, and the Jihad still continues. The Russians killed Khattab, and Shamil arose after him. They killed Shamil, and Al-Ghamidi arose after him. They killed Al-Ghamidi, and the Caucasus united under a Mujahid Islamic Emirate. They spoiled the “Islamic Courts” in Somalia, and the Mujahideen Youth Movement arose from its womb. Thus, the Islamic Ummah is not limited to certain figures, and the killing of men is not a victory against Islam. This is what Allah taught us and struck an example with in regards to the best of the Most High’s creation, saying:
وَمَا مُحَمَّدٌ إِلاَّ رَسُولٌ قَدْ خَلَتْ مِنْ قَبْلِهِ الرُّسُلُ أَفَإِنْ مَاتَ أَوْ قُتِلَ انْقَلَبْتُمْ عَلَى أَعْقَابِكُمْ وَمَنْ يَنْقَلِبْ عَلَى عَقِبَيْهِ فَلَنْ يَضُرَّ اللهَ شَيْئًا وَسَيَجْزِي اللهُ الشَّاكِرِينَ
“Muhammad is no more than a messenger: many Were the messenger that passed away before him. If he died or were slain, will ye then Turn back on your heels? If any did turn back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to Allah; but Allah (on the other hand) will swiftly reward those who (serve Him) with gratitude.” (Aali Imran: 144)
Jihad did not stop with the death of the highest commander of the Muslims, so how can these idiots hope that Jihad will stop with the killing of a mere soldier from the soldiers of Islam, which will remain in existence?
Life and death are in the Hands of Allah Most High, not America nor anyone else. Allah Most High has said:
وَمَا كَانَ لِنَفْسٍ أَنْ تَمُوتَ إِلاَّ بِإِذْنِ اللهِ كِتَابًا مُؤَجَّلاً وَمَنْ يُرِدْ ثَوَابَ الدُّنْيَا نُؤْتِهِ مِنْهَا وَمَنْ يُرِدْ ثَوَابَ الآخِرَةِ نُؤْتِهِ مِنْهَا وَسَنَجْزِي الشَّاكِرِينَ
“Nor can a soul die except by Allah’s leave, the term being fixed as by writing. If any do desire a reward in this life, We shall give it to him; and if any do desire a reward in the Hereafter, We shall give it to him. And swiftly shall We reward those that (serve us with) gratitude.”
We believe in the Divine Measure of Allah. Death at the hands of the enemies is a pride, not an embarrassment. Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, asked who stabbed him, and he was informed that its was Abu Lu’lu’ah Al Majusi, to which he replied, may Allah be pleased with him, “All praise be to the One who made my killer someone who could not use one prostration made to Allah as an argument against me. It was not for an Arab to kill me.” (Al Tabaqat Al Kubra, Ibn Sa’d)
As for the Mujahideen, indeed Allah has consoled and comforted them, and left them which an important and meaningful piece of advice, as He, the Most High, said:
وَكَأَيِّنْ مِنْ نَبِيٍّ قَاتَلَ مَعَهُ رِبِّيُّونَ كَثِيرٌ فَمَا وَهَنُوا لِمَا أَصَابَهُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ وَمَا ضَعُفُوا وَمَا اسْتَكَانُوا وَاللَّهُ يُحِبُّ الصَّابِرِينَ * وَمَا كَانَ قَوْلَهُمْ إِلاَّ أَنْ قَالُوا رَبَّنَا اغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا وَإِسْرَافَنَا فِي أَمْرِنَا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ
“How many of the prophets fought (in Allah’s way), and with them (fought) Large bands of godly men? But they never lost heart if they met with disaster in Allah’s way, nor did they weaken (in will) nor give in. And Allah Loves those who are firm and steadfast.
All that they said was: ‘Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and anything We may have done that transgressed our duty: Establish our feet firmly, and help us against those that resist Faith’.”
The Prophets were killed, the Companions were killed, and the Muslims did not grow weak and subservient. Rather, the conquest of Persia and Byzantium occurred after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam. So if Jihad did not cease after him, rather it became stronger, then what about after others?
Indeed Usama, may Allah accpet him from the martyrs, gained what he was hoping for. It was the same wish of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, when he said:
‹‹ ولوددت أني أُقتَل في سبيل الله ثم أحيا ثم أُقتل ثم أحيا ثم أُقتل ثم أحيا ثم أُقتَل ››
“I wish that I could be killed in the Path of Allah, then be brought back to life, then be killed, then be brought back to life, then be killed, then be brought back to life, then be killed.” (Al Bukhari and Muslim)
Usama announced on more than one occasion that he has lived for too long, and that he was still in pursuit of his loved one – martyrdom, who continues to flirt with him and then runs away in embarrassment to hide behind the expensive cloak called “life”. It was only becoming of Usama that he removes the cloak of “life” to embrace his loved one like one in love does.
The second Caliph of the Muslims, Umar bin Al Khattab was killed by by Abu Lu’lu’ah Al Majusi, then the third Caliph was killed by the hands of the coward revolutionaries, and then the third Caliph was killed by the hands of the Kharijite Ibn Muljam. The majority of great leaders of Islam were killed in treachery by the hands of traitors. And today we the see the Rafidite Shiite government of Pakistan act treacherously against another lion from the lions of Islam… and Jihad still continues.
Indeed great leaders enter life as others, but they refuse to leave it like others. Being killed in the fields of Jihad is not something to be ashamed of, but rather what is shameful is that a person dies suddenly without ever having inflicted any harm upon the enemy.
وإنا لقومٌ لا نرى القتلَ سبّة … إذا ما رأتْه عامرٌ وسلولُ
يُقرّب حُبُّ الموتِ آجالنا لنا … وتكرههُ آجالهم فتطولُ
Indeed we are a people who do not find offense in being killed
Even though Amir and Salul do.
The love of death shortens our life
While their hatred of it lengthens theirs.
The Christians will celebrate, as will the Jews, and as will every infidel on the face of this earth. Every apostate will dance along with them, and their heart will throb at Usama’s departure from this world. You will not find anyone with an atom’s weight of faith in their heart feel joy along with the infidels. The only Muslim who can feel their joy, or maybe even more than all the infidels combined, is the Sheikh himself.
وَلاَ تَحْسَبَنَّ الَّذِينَ قُتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللهِ أَمْوَاتًا بَلْ أَحْيَاءٌ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ يُرْزَقُونَ * فَرِحِينَ بِمَا آتَاهُمُ اللهُ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ وَيَسْتَبْشِرُونَ بِالَّذِينَ لَمْ يَلْحَقُوا بِهِمْ مِنْ خَلْفِهِمْ أَلاَّ خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلاَ هُمْ يَحْزَنُون
Think not of those who are slain in Allah’s way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord. They rejoice in the bounty provided by Allah: And with regard to those left behind, who have not yet joined them (in their bliss), the (Martyrs) glory in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they (cause to) grieve. (Aali Imran: 169-170)
Did you hear this, O’ you who believe? “They rejoice in the bounty provided by Allah: And with regard to those left behind, who have not yet joined them (in their bliss), the (Martyrs) glory in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they (cause to) grieve.”
Then the Most High said:
الَّذِينَ اسْتَجَابُوا لِلَّهِ وَالرَّسُولِ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا أَصَابَهُمُ الْقَرْحُ لِلَّذِينَ أَحْسَنُوا مِنْهُمْ وَاتَّقَوْا أَجْرٌ عَظِيمٌ
“Of those who answered the call of Allah and the Messenger, even after being wounded, those who do right and refrain from wrong have a great reward.” (Aali Imran: 172)
I call all the Mujahideen of the world and all their supporters, to prevent their tears from flowing and to keep their rage to themselves, so that it can act as a volcano which explodes at its proper time. We do not want sporadic operations of vengeance. Rather, we want special operations which are properly planned out, with wisdom and patience, so that it can bear its fruit, and make America forget the attacks on Washington and New York, and say goodbye to the good old days. This is an extremely important matter, as individual and random operations of vengeance usually have negative effects, and as crying and showing ones sadness brings joy to the enemies of Allah. It is incumbent upon the leaders of Jihad to rearrange their cards and announce a successor to Sheikh Usama, may Allah have mercy on him, and then start to plan the coming stages with experience, looking into what is in the greater interest of the Ummah.
May Allah have mercy upon the Lion of Islam and the Sheikh of Jihad, and accept him from amongst the martyrs. May He place in him the registers along side the first and foremost believers, the martyrs, and the righteous. May Allah make his killed body a spark of Jihad in the Islamic Ummah, and his blood fuel for a war which will uproot infidelity from the world… and there is none more clear in speech than than Allah:
هَذَا بَيَانٌ لِلنَّاسِ وَهُدًى وَمَوْعِظَةٌ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ : وَلاَ تَهِنُوا وَلاَ تَحْزَنُوا وَأَنْتُمُ الأَعْلَوْنَ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ* إِنْ يَمْسَسْكُمْ قَرْحٌ فَقَدْ مَسَّ الْقَوْمَ قَرْحٌ مِثْلُهُ وَتِلْكَ الأَيَّامُ نُدَاوِلُهَا بَيْنَ النَّاسِ وَلِيَعْلَمَ اللهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَيَتَّخِذَ مِنْكُمْ شُهَدَاءَ وَاللَّهُ لاَ يُحِبُّ الظَّالِمِينَ
Here is a plain statement to men, a guidance and instruction to those who fear Allah! So lose not heart, nor fall into despair: For ye must gain mastery if ye are true in Faith. If a wound hath touched you, be sure a similar wound hath touched the others. Such days (of varying fortunes) We give to men and men by turns: that Allah may know those that believe, and that He may take to Himself from your ranks Martyr-witnesses (to Truth). And Allah loveth not those that do wrong. (Aali Imran: 138-140)
O Allah! Make him from amongst those you have chosen as martyrs, and make us from them as well, O Lord of all that exists!
O Allah! Cause us to die as Usama has died!
And Allah knows best.
And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, and upon his family and companions.
