(Arrahmah.com) – Thursday (29/1/2015), Muwahideen Media published an English summary of the joint statement by several prominent Jihadi scholars on Islamic State (IS), or also known as ISIS, in the Caucasus:
Fitnah in Kavkaz
It have reached us that the fitnah of Jamaat Al Dawlah have reached Kavkaz and split the ranks and the focus have changed from the enemy (Russia) to towards each others.
We clearly denounce this Khilafah and that it is batil as the Ulamah from our time have clarified and the Ulamah before us. As Khilafah can not come without Ahl ul hal wal Aqd.
The famous hadith of Umar ibn Khattab is mentioned in length;
“Whoever gives bayah to a man without the shura of the muslims then there is no bayah to him…”
and the words of Shaykh ul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah:
“If Umar and a group with him managed to give bayah to Abu Bakr and the rest of the Sahaba refuses then he(Abu Bakr) would not become Imam then, rather Abu Bakr became Imam by the bayah of Jumhoor al Sahaba…”
The Khilafah will be established by fulfilling its shuroot and removing its Maoun3 (obstacles) and protecting the Ummah from the invading enemy as the crusaders and their allies.
This move (Khilafah) have created rifts between the Mujahideen and made Mujahideen break their oaths and this is even worse when the Mujahideen are in hard conditions as in Kavkaz.
“And obey Allah and His Messenger, and do not dispute and [thus] lose courage and [then] your strength would depart; and be patient. Indeed, Allah is with the patient.” [8:46].
The Khilafah is for uniting the ranks and not splitting them and whoever does this (split the ranks) should ask for forgivness and go away from this act and it is obligatory in Shariah to uphold your vows “And fulfill [every] commitment. Indeed, the commitment is ever [that about which one will be] questioned.” [17:34]
It is known that the Mujahideen in Kavkaz have given bayah to Shaykh Abu Muhammad al-Dagestani Hafidahullah and that upholding this bayah is wajib and haram to break it as mentioned in the evidence listed before (*I didnt include all of the evidences) and it is a blessing from Allah upon the mujahideen in Kavkaz that He has made their leader a man among ahl ul ilm and that he is on the path of Khattab and Shamil and Abu Walid and Doku Umarov RahimahumAllah.
The breaking of bayah to Shaykh Abu Muhammad is NOT an act of kufr and does not make the unlawful blood lawful!
We advice the Mujahideen in Kavkaz to remove this rift between them and whatever disagreement they have to refer it back to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of his Prophet Sallahu aleyhi wa salam and to consult the Ulamah of Ilm and the experienced Mujahideen and not the ignorants with no Shari knowlegde;
“So ask the people of the message if you do not know.” [16:43]
