As-salam alaykum wa rahmat Allah wa barakatuhu

To the dear brothers in the Diwan al-Siha in al-Sham in particular the Pharmacy Council, we ask you to provide us with the vaccines if they are available with you and that is because we have pressing need for them and because they are not available in Wilayat al-Anbar. So we ask you to facilitate the matter of providing us with them. And we have raised a letter about them to the Diwan al-Siha in Iraq, and that is according to your request for cooperation with you and for the sake of the interest of the Muslims. And the vaccines we need and are not available with us currently are:

. BCG vaccine: distilled water only.
. Triple vaccine.
. Quadruple vaccine.
. Hepatitis vaccine.
. Polio vaccine.

And that is through your knowledge in transaction in bringing the vaccines from special sources. As for us, we do not have the ability to purchase them and we are in pressing need for them. So may God reward you best and may God write your reward and protect your amirs.

And may God reward you best.

Praise be to God and prayers and peace and salutations be upon the Messenger of God and his family. As for what follows:

As-salam alaykum wa rahmat Allah wa barakatuhu

The Almighty has said: ‘If you do not go forth, He will inflict a painful torment on you and replace you with a people and you will do no harm to Him and God is capable over everything’- (al-Tawba 39).

To the mujahideen muhajireen brothers God has blessed our state with tamkin but the news points to the undertaking of an attack on your city, the city of glory and dignity, at the hands of the Safavid Army and the sectarian Hashd. And we would like to explain to you the methods of withdrawal:

1. The muhajireen brothers of the leadership must return to the land of the Caliphate (the city of Mosul) then to Turkey and spend a period of leave permit there extended to one month while other assignments are received.

2. The fighting brothers of the muhajireen must return to the land of the Caliphate in the city of Mosul and rest in it until the issuing of instructions.

After God blessed you with successive victories against the Rafidites in all the wilayas, you will be supplied with ammonium nitrate that will be received via the state of Qatar.

2. The receipt will be via the supplier of the wilaya in coordination with the general supplier and with speed in order to prolong the operations.

[Comment: there are numerous signs of forgery in these documents. First, the Gregorian dating is marked in an abbreviated form (with 2016 marked as 16) and no indication is given that this is Gregorian dating and no hint is given of the Hijri dating. In addition, by the time these documents were supposed to have been issued, the General Supervisory Committee had become the Delegated Committee. Moreover, the documents contain some familiar tropes of local Iraqi discourse such as the idea that Turkey and Qatar have been supporting the Islamic State].

Circular from the Delegated Committee on Rewards for Deeds in War

Islamic State
Delegated Committee

Number: 921
Date: 26 Dhu al-Q’ida 1437 AH/30 August 2016 CE

In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

To: The Diwan al-Jund
Subject: Disbursement of Pay


Praise be to God and prayers and peace be upon the Messenger of God and his family with salutations…..As for what follows:

As-salam alaykum wa rahmat Allah wa barakatuhu

I ask God the Blessed and Almighty to protect you with His protection, and guide you with His guidance, and make right your judgement, and make firm your steps, and grant you victory over your enemy, and grant you success for what He loves and is pleased with. Indeed He is excellent as Lord and excellent as Helper.

The Almighty has said: ‘So fight in the path of God. Only bear what you yourself can deal with, and rouse the believers. Perhaps God will ward off the might of those who have disbelieved. And God is mightier in might and mightier in inflicting damage’- (Surat al-Nisa’ 84).

As it is from the aspect of incitement to fight the enemies of God and the apostates and inflicting havoc on them and inciting the brothers to fight them, the Amir al-Mu’mineen Sheikh Abu Bakr al-Qurashi al-Baghdadi (may God protect him) has ordered to give payments in golden dinars to all who inflict havoc in destroying the arms and equipment of the enemies of God Almighty, and that is according to the following arrangement:

. Aircraft (fighter jets/helicopters/drones): giving a car whose value is no less than 10 golden dinars of 21 carats to the detachment or person and that is according to the directives of the amir.

. Tanks: payment is to be given according to the manner in which they have been destroyed as follows:

Giving 7 golden dinars for everyone who blows up a tank with any weapons even if it is by land mines controlled by wire or control devices from a distance except land mines that not controlled from a distance. The exception also is blowing up with guided missiles, for which only 1 golden dinar is to be given.

. Armoured cars in their various types and armoured vehicles: giving 4 golden dinars except for what is blown up with a land mine.

. General vehicles: giving 2 dinars except what is blown up with an uncontrolled land mine.

. Sniper: giving of every apostate or disbeliever: giving 1 dinar if it is photographed and half a dinar if there is a witness with it.

. Support: every projectile that achieves direct hits, there is to given 1 silver dirham to the detachment on the basis that there is a witness or photography. This in in the event of not knowing the type of losses of the enemy. As for in the event of knowing the losses of the enemy, it is to be given for the biggest target and not for every target, provided the news should be on the same day.

. Using chemical weapons with projectiles and rockets: for every projectile that hits the target: 10 silver dirhams are to be given to the detachment.

. Killing an apostate or disbelieving soldier: 10 silver dirhams are to be give whatever the means of killing, except sniper.

. Capturing an apostate or disbelieving soldier: 1 golden dinar is to be given.

[In handwriting]:

To be circulated to all sectors and all the divisions are to be informed of circulating to the brigades, battalions and detachments.









Mechanism of giving the payment from the Bayt al-Mal:

. The fighting brother or unit must submit a request to the direct amir or administrative official, with the target that has been achieved in the battle or the expedition, while offering the evidence to prove it from witnesses or photography.

. The direct amir must be sure of the truthfulness of the request and the witnesses and certify it, and he is to give a certified copy to the person making the request, while referring a detailed report to the general administrative official in the battalion/brigade/division, on the basis that the requests should be brought together every 10 days and submitted to the Bayt al-Mal so that they can be disbursed to the fighters. And if the lack of truthfulness of the request is established, the matter is to be referred to the military judiciary.

. And the Bayt al-Mal is authorised by any other means [to transfer the disbursements] provided it should be quicker than this means.

. For the amirs (amir of the division and below): for each amir there is to be a deduction of 1% of the payment granted to the fighters who are under his amirship. An example of that:

. The support unit has launched 10 projectiles, 5 of which hit the target. So it is to be given 5 silver dirhams from which there is to be the following deductions:

. 1% for the amir of the detachment.
. 1% for the amir of the general support.
. 1% for the amir of the division.
. So 97% goes to the detachment.

A brother has blown up a Hummer vehicle with a land time through connection with a wire or control device at a distance:

. 1% for the amir of the detachment.
. 1% for the amir of the squadron.
. 1% for the amir of the platoon.
. 1% for the amir of the battalion.
. 1% for the amir of the brigade.
. 1% for the amir of the division.
. So 94% goes to the fighting brother.

If these brothers are his amirs.

. If the brother is killed after submitting the request and referring it to the Bayt al-Mal, the payment is to be disbursed to his family. As for if he is killed during the battle, his reward falls upon God.

And may God reward you best.

Notes:

1. This system of payment is to be effective from date 1 Dhu al-Hijja 1437 AH and for a period of 3 months.
2. It must be circulated to all the soldiers in the battalions, brigades and divisions.
