“Al-Soumariyyah” News Agency broke the news of the death of the former Iraqi president (Jalal Talabani), who is a Kurd, and the official funeral ceremony in the province of Sulaymaniyah in the Kurdistan region instead of the capital Baghdad, which prevented the presence of Iraqi officials and ambassadors of foreign countries, which led to the withdrawal of a number of those who attended the deputies of the Iraqi parliament, in objection to wrapping the dead body with the Kurdish flag instead of the Iraqi flag, considering that a “treachery and prudence to the President, as he was a figure for the unity of Iraq, and a second stab to her.”
Your matter is strange oh rulers of Iraq – leaders, presidents and chiefs..! Are you upset over the wrapping of a dead body with a rag drawn for you by the Kafir Britain, the enemy of Islam and Muslims, whether it is a flag for Iraq or Kurdistan. Britain, who destroyed your beloved state, the Khilafah state, with the help of the Arab and Turkish agents, the state in which we were glorified, and which the kings of the east and west in the three continents subjected to…?! Only if you cry over yourselves in fear of the Day you shall be brought to the same fate as the one Talabani has gone to, being pleased with the Kuffar ruling over you in a Muslim country such as Iraq, like Bush, Bremer and others who humiliated your brothers, abused the honour (women) with your help, looted our wealth, and uprooted the landmarks of our Islamic civilisation in Iraq, Syria, Palestine, Yemen, Libya, Afghanistan and Pakistan… and many others.
Did you cry or object on the day when your masters and dignitaries handed over one third of the land of Iraq to a criminal faction who worked on turning cities full of Iman, and its dear people, into wreck and destruction, causing them homelessness with no help. But instead, you were silent and were pleased with emptying the safes of a giant country, allowing the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to loot it, until the “emerging” generations thought that you sold Iraq’s oil and soil, thus, what would they do in such disasters you created..?! However – we eventually believe that Allah (swt) will make His Deen victorious, and will grant His righteous servants power and will establish them in the earth very soon by His will and power, as Khulafa’ and righteous leaders, so that they purify all the lands of the Muslims from the filth of the colonial Kuffar, and return everything to their right places, and that is not a great matter for Allah (swt).
وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مِنْكُمْ وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَيَسْتَخْلِفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَمَا اسْتَخْلَفَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ وَلَيُمَكِّنَنَّ لَهُمْ دِينَهُمُ الَّذِي ارْتَضَى لَهُمْ وَلَيُبَدِّلَنَّهُمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ خَوْفِهِمْ أَمْنًا يَعْبُدُونَنِي لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِي شَيْئًا وَمَنْ كَفَرَ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ فَأُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ
“Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their religion – the one which He has chosen for them; and that He will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace: ‘They will worship Me (alone) and not associate aught with Me. ‘If any do reject Faith after this, they are rebellious and wicked.”
