A new video purportedly released by the Islamic State titled “The Knights of the Scorched Battlefield” from “Wilayat Dijlah,” or “State of the Tigris,” Iraq shows the ongoing battles against Iraqi and American coalition forces south of Mosul. The video was released on ISIS terrorist channels on December 20.

According to the Terrorism Research & Analysis Consortium, vulnerable cities within the occupied region named by ISIS as Wilayat Dijlah include, “Al-Shirqat, Al-Qayyarah, Tel Reem, Mt. Makhoul, Al-Zab, Tulul al-Baj, Azawiyyah, Sadiyrah, Al-Mujmu’at, Halabiya Village, [and] Makhmur.”

Last month, the American coalition, consisting of the Iraqi Army, the Kurdish Peshmerga, Shia militias, Christian militias, and the Turkish Nineveh Guard, descended upon Mosul to free it from the Islamic State. The official operation began on October 17 when it was announced by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, reports the BBC.

The video begins with a speech by new ISIS second-in-command and spokesman, Abul-Hasan al-Muhajir. al-Muhajir was announced as the replacement to the deceased Mohammad al-Adnani, who was ISIS’ second-in-command until he was killed by an airstrike on August 30 in al-Bab, Aleppo Governorate, Syria, according to NBC.

In the speech, al-Muhajir says:

O mujahidin, three matters have gathered for you: a land ruled by sharia [law], an invading enemy whom there is nothing obligatory as fighting after iman, and martyrdom.

According to Wikipedia, “Iman in Islamic theology denotes a believer’s faith in the metaphysical aspects of Islam. Its most simple definition is the belief in the six articles of faith.” The six articles of faith in Islam are: “Belief in Allah, The Only God, Belief in the Angels, Belief in Holy Books (Taurat, Gospel and Quran), Belief in the Prophets, Belief in the Day of Judgement, [and] Belief in God’s predestination.”

The video then focuses on ISIS’ battles with the “Rafidis.”

“Rafidi” is a derogatory term for Shia Muslims used by Sunnis. It means “rejectors” because Shia Muslims believe in a different line of successorship for Islam following the death of its founder Muhammad. It is commonly used by ISIS to refer to Iranian-backed Iraqi government as a whole.

The video closes with footage of “ghanimah.”

ISIS calls its “war booty” “ghanimah,” which is an Islamic term. According to the Oxford Dictionary:

In classical Islam, wealth taken by force from an enemy in times of war. There were considerable differences among the classical jurists concerning rights to, and possession of, such wealth. All were agreed, however, that ghanimah was to be distributed in accordance with the shares specified in the Quranic directive in surah 8:41.

Quranic verse 8:41 reads:

And know that anything you obtain of war booty – then indeed, for Allah is one fifth of it and for the Messenger and for [his] near relatives and the orphans, the needy, and the [stranded] traveler, if you have believed in Allah and in that which We sent down to Our Servant on the day of criterion – the day when the two armies met. And Allah , over all things, is competent.

Islam is a religion of hatred, intolerance, murder and violence. This video is an example of these Islamic people who do what Mohammed did in relation to hatred, murder and violence. Mohammed was also a pedophile, Leave this to the Arabs. Ban Islam from other countries. Let all those who support go to the middle east and live there. Go for it Muslamic Arabs. Enjoy it in your land. Do your worst to other Muslamics. Leave other countries now.

أبو يعقوب المهاجر (@abuyaqubmuhajir)

Let me tell you what kind of tolerance you expect from Muslims. We’ll bomb the shit outta your country, let our agents rape your women and children, use proxy war fro decades, install democracy that would stretch our colonies and bases and you won’t be freaked about it. Something, you won’t find anywhere. If you expect this kind of tolerance, try with China, they’ll eat American soldiers raw.

@abuyaqubmuhajir) Did you see in Quran verses, where rape is halal? are you out of your mind? Give me reference to you words to Quran.. l know you can’t.
Planty of idiots, you do not have permission to declare jihad! only halif can! but we don’t have naither khalif nor khalifat! – it mean that you cant do jihad! Abu bakr al bagdadi is not halif, no one accepts him like khalif, exept ISIS bandits.
But generally jihad is avalible only in defence! not in intervensions! where did your read, that someone can blow and kill thousants civilians? Did quran say that? No/ it’s your sick mind – and thouse who done this will go to hell with their western curators.

I just don’t understand. How can over 65 countries with the best military technology in the world can’t defeat Islamic State. I don’t like Islamic State but they are fight very very effectively. Maybe they are on the right path. Maybe god does want them to win over us. I’m trying to learn more about Islam. I want to know more about these people…

Alex

I agree with you. I don’t understand how all the tanks and jets we have can’t kill these people. I’m also learning about Islam…i want to learn more about these people and why they don’t fear death.

A Muslim believes in the promise of the Creator. Who created the heavens and the earth, mankind, Jinn and everything that exist. He is Allaah. The Lord of Abraham, Ismael, Isaac,Yaqoob (Jacob), Yusef(Joseph), Moses, Jesus and last Muhammad Piece and blessings upon them all. The soldier of Allaah fights until death because from the first drop of blood all his sins are forgiven and will enter the highest level of paradise without judgment. You see in Islaam just because your a Muslim dose not mean you are guaranteed paradise unlike christianity. A Muslim has to work hard and strive against his desires in order to enjoin good and forbid evil to please Allaah the Almighty. We Muslims believe and know that this world is pathetic and worthless. In fact Allaah says in his Noble Qur’aan, that this whole earth is not even equal to the WING of a fly. This earth is limited, no matter how much you chase the worldly dreams and achievements, the human soul will never ever be able to fulfill his desires , the soul will always want MORE!! Therefore a Muslim understands this and does his best not to get trapped in this delusional world and fake tactics of Shaytaan (Devil) and try to strive hard and invest in the after life which is limitless, never ending pleasure that no eye has ever seen except our beloved prophet Muhammad piece be upon him.

Slave of Allah

You are wrong. A man don’t take risk of his own life for money. They are fighting to get Jannat (Heaven). They are fighting to get Allah’s Satisfaction. They are fighting to establish islamic shariah (rules) all over the world. They are the Follower of Last Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). They are chosen by Allah instead of Jews & Christians.

you’re welcome to convert into Islam and became one of our brother but you need first to be sure about that decision. Think about it and your eyes will be open. There is only one way to start that process of change: remember: Only One God Allah and Mohamed is his last prophet. Islam Sate is here to stay. Believe that and your are in the good path;
