As-salam alaykum wa rahmat Allah wa barakatuhu

I ask God for this letter of mine to reach you while you are in the best state of health and wellness, and that He should make you among those who serve His religion, and that He should make Islam and Muslims benefit through you.

Note the letter of the General Supervisory Committee no. 81 on date 7 Dhu al-Q’ida 1436 AH, which contains the following: “…As the basis on which one has joined the ranks of the Islamic State is jihad in God’s path and fighting the disbelievers and apostates in order to make supreme the word of God and obey His commands, the principle among them [those who have joined] is that they should obey when commanded, mobilise when ordered to do so, and heed when called. If those ranks have been not safe from the recruitment of some of the hypocrites and people who cause others to abandon and people who spread false rumours (and God is the One whose help is to be sought), and the impact they have on the unity of rank and its steadfastness, then it is decided to expel from the ranks of the Islamic State- by the permission of God Almighty- those whose refusal to answer orders for mobilisation without a Shari’i excuse is established, and all the measures taken against those who have been expelled will apply to them. And God is the Self-Sufficient and One Worthy of Praise…”

Therefore we hope you will inform all those under your stead of this directive so that no one has an argument against us after this letter.

May God reward you best.

The wali.
