To those champions who avowed the truth day and night... ...And wrote with their blood and sufferings these phrases...
-*-The confrontation that we are calling for with the apostate regimes does not know Socratic debates..., Platonic ideals..., nor Aristotelian diplomacy. But it knows the dialogue of bullets, the ideals of assassination, bombing, and destruction, and the diplomacy of the cannon and machine-gun.



Islamic governments have never and will never be established through peaceful solutions and cooperative councils. They are established as they [always ]have been
by pen and gun
by word and bullet
by tongue and teeth

In the name of Allah, the merciful and compassionate
Thanks be to Allah. We thank him, turn to him, ask his forgiveness, and seek refuge in him from our wicked souls and bad deeds. Whomever Allah enlightens will not be misguided, and the deceiver will never be guided. I declare that there is no god but Allah alone; he has no partners. I a l s o declare that Mohammed is his servant and prophet.

[Koranic verses ]:

“O ye who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam"

“O mankind! Fear your guardian lord who created you from a single person. Created, out of it, his mate, and from them twain scattered [like seeds ]countless men and women; fear Allah, through whom ye demand your mutual [rights ],and be heedful of the wombs [that bore you ]:for Allah ever watches over you."

"O ye who believe! Fear Allah, and make your utterance straight forward: That he may make your conduct whole and sound and forgive you your sins. He that obeys Allah and his messenger, has already attained the great victory."

The most truthful saying is the book of Allah and the best guidance is that of Mohammed, God bless and keep him. [Therefore,] the worst thing is to introduce something new, for every novelty is an act of heresy and each heresy is a deception
