By Abu Sa’eed Al-Britani (From the video, ‘Message Of A Mujahid”)
Some people falsely claim that Dawlah go around killing innocent civilians in Syria. I find this very strange and quite amusing at the same time. I have been with Dawlah for 11 months now and not a single time have I seen or heard of such a thing.When I was with JN, I used to hear of many such cases. However my curiosity of searching for the haqq, and knowing that we do not spread news without first verifying the facts, lead me to come to the Islamic State. And once inside, the haqq became as clear as day.
Once inside you see things first-hand, you interact with the civilians, you live among the people who the world criticises without any solid evidence, and without knowing anything about them.
So, does dawlah kill its own citizens? The simple answer is no.
But what about the media? What about the “reported” cases?
As I said, we do not kill innocent citizens, however, the only “civilians” we kill are those who deserve death due to crimes they commit. For example, if a person commits zina while being married, or if a civilian spies for the Kuffaar, or if he murders someone, or if someone curses the Messenger (saw); in such cases, we would carry out the hadd punishment against him.
And of course his best friend, younger brother or son will say he was innocent, which family member will admit that their father deserves death? Of course his wife would flee to Turkey, have an interview broadcasted on TV saying we killed her husband. Such reactions are based upon emotions.
Emotions which carry no weight in a court hearing. Emotions which do not negate the facts. Emotions which do nothing but play on others’ emotions.
And I, for one, find it quite amusing how people in the west cry about how we kill “innocent civilians”, as if they were present at the court.
Every case goes through the court, so unless you were present at the hearing, don’t speak about that which you have no knowledge of. Every case is processed thoroughly and carefully examined for the proofs for and against it.
I myself have been to the courts many times over the past 5 months. My case was a simple one where I wanted my haqq from my Amir. A simple case indeed, but it took a long time so as to assure the final verdict is indeed according to the Quraan and Sunnah.
So what about a case where a life is on the line? Do you really think that the Islamic State judges on such cases within a day or two?
Unlike the western media proclaims, we are an organised state, with police, judges, scholars, students of knowledge, etc,
So again, I repeat what I mentioned above, stop proclaiming that the state kills innocent civilians, acting as if you were present in the hearing. I request our critics to come to Dawlah territory and witness first-hand at how we deal with the civilians.
Speak with the civilians, the young, the old, from all corners of the expanding state, and judge for yourself what the haqq is. Do not rely on single cases, these blown out of proportion, one-sided emotional stories, and then taking that to be the norm.
Indeed he who is sincerely searching for the haqq, will find it.
