"The Muslims and the rest of the world should know that we are in this task only in order to defend our religion, the grace of our Prophet Muhammad (SAW) who is insulted in some places and is disgraced in other places; I swear, we rose in arms in order to defend our religion, the dignity of our Prophet and the lives and property of fellow Muslims who are always being killed and or persecuted by unbelievers. They are being persecuted and killed and at the end they are blamed and disgraced. I swear, that is what we are fighting against. "We understood from the Book sent to the Prophet Muhammad that there is no better way to earn our dignity than through the path God tells us to follow, that is holy war. "Nobody is persecuting us like this government which regards itself as secular, and is concerned only with nation-building. Nobody is persecuting our religion and our Prophet like it. They use their soldiers, their police, their system of unbelief and their collaborators.

"Look at the way some of them talk, 'Let us find these people and reconcile with them,' but others from amongst them say, 'Why bother about the wishes of these people? The best way to deal with these people, who are just making empty threats, it to just finish them off.' An instance is that the Police Chief has mouthed what he wanted to say and God has shown him that He is the Most Powerful. (Clips of Inspector of Police Hafiz Ringim and the bombing of Police Headquarters) And another one of them, the Army Chief, has said what he wanted to say. (Clip of soldiers on patrol) Now, you can see that even among themselves they don't know exactly what to do about us. (Clip of President Jonathan) So, why should we be deceived by their utterances and abandon what God has commanded us to do? There is no talk of us abandoning what God says, much less be deceived by their utterances; even they are not really united on what to do with us. "O people! You should know that we do not have any ulterior motive in this job apart from serving Islam. (Quotes in Arabic) And don't think that because we say "Islam," it simply means prayers, paying the poor due (Zakkat), Hajj or fasting; no, these are rituals that are integral parts of Islam. But you should know that Jihad, the holy war, as well as migration from where you are being persecuted to where you can worship God easily is also Islam; to give your wealth out in the cause of God is also Islam; indeed, every aspect of co-habitation such as trading, farming, mode of dressing, and even friendship are Islam. All our lives are governed by Islam. The foundation of Islam is Tauheed; whoever lacks Tauheed is like saying he is not with you. That is why Allah (SWT) says if you are going to be practising religion, then, all of you must join Islam. (Quotes from the Qur'an in Arabic, translates thus: "O you who believe! You must join the religion in whole") That's what Allah almighty says. But He also warns that you must not follow the Satan's path, the Satan's system. That is why we say that we will not follow a government of unbelief. We

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
