Introduction:
Alhamdulillāh who guided us to Islām, alhamdulillāh who guided us to jihād. For we
are merely made of dust and to it we shall all return.
There seems to be a difference of opinion until this day as to how the sahawāt
initiated, I'm not discussing this to start an argument or to try and point fingers. I
would like to speak about what I witnessed first-hand with the brothers around me.
Many of these brothers got shahādah; hence it's a responsibility for us, those who
are left behind, to clarify these incidents and to remove any doubts which may be
circulating among the masses.
I recently moved to Halab from Idlib & Lāthaqiyah. Along with a couple of English
speaking muhājirīn (brothers who migrated from Dār Al-Kufr to Dār Al-Islām). The
brothers came from a wide variety of backgrounds, including Indonesia, Eritrea,
India, Kosovo, Norway, Somalia, America, Australia, Pakistan, Britain and Sudan.
Fifteen brothers, from eleven different countries. We got to know each other here in
this blessed land and became closer than family. Even with our differences in
background, accents and races, we were still very close; as it was nothing but Islām
that united us. We used to have a shūrah every day after Fajr which helped us
understand each other better. It also helped us to fix problems that required
immediate attention, as well as allowing us to see where we needed improvement,
along with many other issues.

Early Days In Tawāmah:
We were stationed in Tawāmah, a town between Dāna and Attārib. There was not a
single restaurant in town, so we had our cooking adventures with the little provision
we found in the local shops. We were living the simple life of a mujāhid. The
townsfolk were simple people, many didn't know their dīn; for example, many young
women did not observe the correct hijāb, the young men played songs, the people

committed acts of kufr, the elders did not treat the children with proper manners
and then there were the poor and orphans who were ignored by the masses. There
were many other issues in this town, but these were the ones I witnessed.
The brothers and I tried to tackle them and change them as much as we could.
Regarding the music we started talking to the young men telling them that music is
forbidden in Islām, thereafter we would confiscate their USB's, delete the music files
and replace them with Qur’ān, nashīds and lectures by scholars such as Shaykh
Khālid Al-Rashīd (may Allāh free him from the Saudi prison, amīn).
Regarding the poor and orphans we would collect money from the brothers, go to
the houses of those in need and purchase their basic needs and whatever else we
saw fit. Abū Sayf Al-Amrīkī (may Allāh accept him) once purchased slippers for the
children who were always seen running around the town barefooted. May Allāh
reward him well as he bought as many as he could afford prior to going back to ribāt.
During time off ribāt, many brothers would go to every corner of the town to play
football with the children. Abū Hudhayfah Al-Somālī (may Allāh accept him) knew
almost all the kids by name, a brother much loved by all those who knew him.These
were two ex-Ahrār Al-Shām brothers who joined the ranks of Dawlah five months
prior to the sahawāt.

Further Da'wah And Tarbiyah For The Locals:
We didn't stay in that town for long, however during our stay, we worked on helping
the people come back to Islām, both in words and deeds. Many bad habits needed
fixing, and many other habits needed amending. When talking to people from the
town about committing acts of kufr, we would hear many excuses, for example
claiming that they have lived for 50 years under oppression, or how their acts were
nothing more than “a bad habit.” Even the ones that smoked were given da'wah in
the best possible ways, we spoke to them as much as we could, reminding them of
Allāh (‫)سبحانه و تعالى‬, and the harms of smoking, both in this world and the next. Many
did not listen, but we kept trying with the hope that one day they would change.
With regards to the sisters not covering up properly; the brothers would try speaking
to their fathers or their brothers. The parents thought that wearing a head scarf
fulfilled the requirement of the hijāb. A woman covered from head to toe was
something they thought only people in Saudi Arabia did for cultural purposes.
Alhamdulillāh the wives of the two brothers, Abū Sayf Al-Amrīkī and Abū Hudhayfah
Al-Somālī, along with a single sister who came to Shām done their obligation to the
women of the town in teaching them the true meaning of hijāb in unimaginable
ways. These blessed few sisters who sacrificed a lot to come to Shām, were now
looked up to by the women of the town. They had become walking role models and
an example for all those who wished to know the true meaning of the hijāb.

|Page4

The brothers and sisters (may Allāh accept them all) used to walk around town and
the children and other sisters would approach these sisters and try talking to them,
even though the local knew they didn’t know much of the Arabic language! A sister
from Jabhah Al-Nusrah Ansār (helpers of those who migrate to their land) in that
town then volunteered to teach the sisters Arabic. The sister had a big family, and as
the sister was teaching, her family showed great hospitality.
They helped us out a lot, they were very kind and had beautiful manners with us. I
always saw the mujāhidīn of Jabhah An-Nusrah as our brothers, it was just their
leaders who needed to be brought to justice.
Many of the Ansār in our group did not have weapons, and almost all the muhājirīn
had personal guns. So we would share our weapons with them until they got their
own. On some occasions, three brothers would be sharing a gun between them.
Brothers had to go ribāt, that's when we bought shotguns due to them being
relatively cheap and also very good for close range firing. Our families would usually
give us a hard time on the phone, shooting in unpopulated areas was sometimes a
good way to release the frustration, and of course with target shooting as well. The
sisters also found it as an effective anger management program.
A few days or so in Shām for the sisters and they are already being mentioned in the
Jumu'ah khutbah. The Imām was not a part of Dawlah; yet he scolded the civilians
saying, “the sisters who don't know Arabic cover up, while our women don’t cover,
aren't you ashamed?” He also made du'ā towards the end of the khutbah that this
war finishes quickly so Allāh (‫ )سبحانه و تعالى‬can return us muhājirīn to our homes safe
and sound. None of us came here to go back home, so we didn't say āmīn. So after
the Salāh was over, a few brothers sat with him to explain their perspective of hijrah
and jihād. We made our position very clear, it was shahādah with no return! A lot of
issues were clarified with the Imām, who then began to understand out mentality
and approach to life.

The Start Of The Vicious Onslaught By FSA:
We were able to purchase a car, it had minor issues but was sufficient for our needs.
Just a few days after we managed to purchase a car was when the infighting broke
out in Attārib (a neighboring city where our brothers from Dawlah were also
stationed). Attārib had been barricaded by FSA with our brothers, along with their
families, still inside.
The brothers here in Tawāmah took turns in safe-guarding our town as well as
inclosing in on Attārib from the outside.
Backup arrived from other regions inside Halab and Idlib, however many brothers
attained martyrdom fighting off FSA, who were killing the injured and unarmed
brothers they saw inside Attārib. These were mainly the muhājirīn, as the cold
hearted fighters in FSA still had a little sympathy for their own blood.
|Page5

So what happened to our sisters who were in Attārib? I was too scared to ask. And
the stories I heard from brothers in the future about sisters were just too numerous
and too horrific to mention. May Allāh (‫ )سبحانه و تعالى‬protect all our sisters and free
them from the Kuffār and Munāfiqīn, āmīn. When I was on the outskirts of Attārib
during the cold winter, FSA had blocked the roads with huge rocks, and their
inexperienced snipers were positioned all around. This was a well-planned strategy
because all the roads leading inside Attārib were closed, they even had their eyes on
the off-roads that lead inside the city.
I had a radio with me at the time and I would hear them saying dirty and disgusting
words that anyone with an ounce of īmān would not dare to utter. They even cursed
and spoke ill of our parents who we left behind to come here. A brother replied to
him saying, “We would not curse any of your mothers because they are like our
mothers, and the same goes for your fathers.”
They would work so hard to try and anger us; a lady in her early 20's spoke on the
radio of FSA and was saying words only a Kāfirah with no shame and manners would
say. I was shocked hearing it with my own ears and I wish I never did. In my break I
would go back to our base in Tawāmah and try to organize and manage things. I
called the brothers in Idlib, and found out they were also severely assaulted, which
caused them to retreat. This is when I got news of the martyrdom of our beloved
shaykh and my first Amīr, Abū 'Abdullāh Shar'ī (may Allāh accept him).
Attārib just started a day ago, so the shock was still fresh in our minds. It was a mess,
we were clueless of what was happening at our very own doorstep. These were
times where your heart turns to none but Allāh (‫ )سبحانه و تعالى‬alone for help.

Retreating From Base:
The Attārib fight seemed very short, lasting only a few days. An ansārī brother got
shahādah (may Allāh accept him) while his wife was pregnant. The kids in Tawāmah
were playing roles of being Dawlah, nobody wanted to be FSA and they were making
du'ā for us.
The order came from our leader to retreat from Tawāmah; the car had minor issues
but that was not our main concern. We were heading to a checkpoint outside Attārib
for the retreating plan. First the brother dropped the three sisters with a Jabhah AlNusrah family. The man reassured us by saying, “Don't worry about them, you just
take care of yourselves.” The car transported 12 brothers at once with two hanging
from the sides and two motorbikes with total of four brothers on them. We left
everything behind at our base (which later on got stolen by the civilians) and just
took what was important like guns and ammunition.
We reached a rendezvous point outside Attārib; the brothers Abū Sayf Al-Amrīkī and
Abū Hudhayfah Al-Somālī, took permission from our amīr to go bring the sisters we
left behind in Tawāmah with the Jabhah Al-Nusra family. They came to me, told me

of their mission and as I walked them to the car, I had a feeling this would be the last
time I would see them. I wish I hugged them...

Introduction:
Alhamdulillaah who guided us to Islām, alhamdulillāh who guided us to jihād. For we
are merely made of dust and to it we shall return.
Alhamdullillāh I am able to share with my brothers and sisters these experiences;
unlike many fairy tales the Kuffār and Munāfiqīn speak of. These were witnessed by
myself first-hand, and for those who don't like what they read, I cannot ask you to
forgive me, for I haven't insulted you in anyway, but merely stated the facts.
There are Ansār brothers from Dawlah (Islāmic State) whose names I can't mention,
for their families' safety. For many of the faithful Ansār left their families and went
on a journey of hijrah and experienced it first hand along with us, the Muhājrīn. Then
there were those who gave their weapons back and returned to their home. Likewise
there were some Muhājrīn who left Dawlah and went back to their countries. Going
through sahawāt was a test and an eye opener for many. After experiencing such a
trial, I would love to advice my brothers with one thing; check your niyyah
(intention), then check your niyyah again, and keep on checking it even after you’re
here in the Islāmic State. For Shaytān doesn’t leave you when you're in the front
lines, it's actually the opposite. The more closer you are to paradise, the harder he
tries to push you off from this blessed path. Remember Allāh (‫ )سبحانه و تعالى‬in ease
and He shall remember you in hardship.

Retreating From Second Base:
Watching Abū Saif Al-Amrīkī and Abū Hudhaifah Al-Somālī (may Allāh accept them)
reverse the car; I couldn't stop starring at them. A brother then calls me, "The Amīr
wants a word with you." When I went to speak with the Amīr; he was asking how
