Boko Haram pledges allegiance to ISIS

The leader of extremist group, Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, has pledged allegiance to the leader of the terror group, ISIS, Abubakr Al-Qurashi.

In an audio message uploaded to the internet on Saturday, Shekau said his group is reaching out to ISIS based on divine provisions in the Holy Quran, and as directed by the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad.

He said every Muslim must have a leader or risks dying in ignorance.

While Boko Haram seeks to create an Islamic caliphate in the north eastern part of Nigeria, ISIS is pushing a similar agenda in Iraq and Syria.

Boko Haram has recently suffered massive casualties following a reinvigorated onslaught from the combined armed forces of Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon.

Although Shekau did not mention the current onslaught against his group, he said there is need for unity between the two groups.

Shekau delivered his message this time through an audio recording, not video, his preferred style. The authenticity of the clip could not be immediately verified.

“In submission to the order of Allah “Azzawa Jal”, and submission to the order of the prophet peace be upon him to not separate from each other and to stay united as ummah as Jamaa’ah,” he said.

“We announce our allegiance to the caliph of the Muslims, Ibrahim ibn Awad ibn Ibrahim al-Husseini al-Qurashi and will hear and obey in times of difficulty and prosperity, in hardship and ease, and to endure being discriminated against, and not to dispute about rule with those in power, except in case of evident infidelity regarding that which there is a proof from Allah,” he said.

See full text of the speech below:

From your brother in Allah Abu Mohammed Abubakr bin Mohammed Shekau, the Imam of Jamatu Ahlus Sunnah lidda Awati Wal Jihad to the caliph of Muslims Abubakar Abu Bakr Ibrahim ibn Awad ibn Ibrahim al-Husseini al-Qurashi, we are sending ypu this message, following what Allah said in his Quran: (And hold fast, all of you together, to the rope of Allah and be not divided among yourselves).

And what the prophet peace be upon him said: ( Whoever died and he had not Imam, died by death of ignorance), In submission to the order of Allah “Azzawa Jal”, and submission to the order of the prophet peace be upon him to not separate from each other and to stay united as ummah as Jamaa’ah, we announce our allegiance to the caliph of the Muslims, Ibrahim ibn Awad ibn Ibrahim al-Husseini al-Qurashi and will hear and obey in times of difficulty and prosperity, in hardship and ease, and to endure being discriminated against, and not to dispute about rule with those in power, except in case of evident infidelity regarding that which there is a proof from Allah.

We call on Muslims everywhere to pledge allegiance to the caliph and support him, as obedience to Allah and as their application of the absent duty of the era. We pledge allegiance to the caliph because of the interest of the Ummah in their religion and in their Dunya is to have an Imam that looks after them according to the Allah’s Rule and fights the enemies of Islam and those who fights the Rule of Allah and this is the completeness of the religion with the book that guides and the sword that favours.

Ibn Taimiyyah may Allah have mercy on him said 🙁 people must know that having to rule the people is one of the greatest duties of the Religion, even the religion and the world for Muslims will never be in complete without it, the interest of Sons of Adam won’t be successful without them being united under one Jamaa’ah,after their gathering together they must have a head, and it is not a problem even if the less of the group who oppose the others united for this cause ….Jama’at Ahlis Sunnah Lid Daawati Wal Jihad

We pledge allegiance because there is no cure of the dissimilarity that Ummah have except the Caliphate, we also call all the Muslims to join us in this goodness, because it would enrage the enemy of Allah, by Allah, our gathering under one banner, under one Imam is more heavy to the enemy.

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar

And to Allah belongs (all) honour, and to His Messenger, and to the believers, but the hypocrites do not know, May Allah bless our prophet Muhammad (SAW)

    I can deduce the military onslaught has gotten to him. 1st no video, 2nd crying to Isis for help. Hope the military would finish him off bt isis gets involved.

    • abu5

      That’s right. The move is one of desperation. It proves the military offensive has gotten them to a very tight corner, and they are crying out for help from ISIS. It is too late for ISIS to get involved.

    …..in hell !

      Let’s hope your flag bearer will not call for amnesty at this crucial period. Remember he and some members of your party did so the last time?
      Your party Vuvuzela Lai-Lie was even excited yesterday, saying how many times will the N.A kill shekau? Pretending not to know that in warfare, the name of a spokesman is not tied down to an individual. Apart from experts also saying the present shekau looks considerably different from the first.
      Please tell yur party men to stop playing politics with human lives.

      • amazing2012

        Amnesty for who ? No never, but remind Amnesty was granted to those who fought Nigeria state( the Biafrans) as well as those who even today clearly are threatening the state. I never support for Amnesty to any criminal in Nigeria and will never do. It was Jonadaft who decieved people by taking on Amnesty. I support 100% examining or reviewing the solders behavour after the war to check human rights abuses. Same with the Nigerian solders abuses on innocent Igbo women and children as well as Niger-Delta terrorist unarm civilians.

    Now shame on all those who deceived their people that Boko Haram was caused by GEJ. They will tell people also that GEJ formed ISIS. Liars, APC,liars.

    • Joe

      Nobody has ever said GEJ created Boko Haram but he has been of the opinion that Boko Haram was formed to distract his administration. He met it. Then what did he do with it?

      • Kanoute

        Nobody has ever said GEJ created Boko Haram?? Wow!
        You APC Guys though! Yes..i bet u are an APC man, cos, we all know yur party policy is ONE WEEK, ONE LIE!
        Have you been on the moon when several APC supporters write here daily that he created/supports/sponsors them??

  • igboham

    The Islamization of Nigeria has been an open secret for years. I am happy that it is no longer a secret. I actually welcome it because the majority of Nigerians welcome it through their proven practical behaviour. We must all happily embrace the coming sharia society as Nigerians always wanted though secretly. It is happy news.

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Buhari and APC must be privy to Boko Haram’s latest decision.

  • Chiotu Nnamdi

    What are they saying,confused folks.

  • dunkin’

    Beheading of Yoruba Christian Pastors begins…..

    I hope the Yoruba Christians can now understand what this means.
    Right here is the Islamic State of Nigeria on the horizon – right here!
    Christian Pastors waving brooms for bribes will be first to be beheaded.

    • Omo JC

      You are NOT WISE!!! Don’t we have Yoruba pastors supporting Jonathan too?

    • Al Jihadi

      “This is a war against Christians, democracy, and, their (1999) Constitution.
      Jonathan, you’ll be surprised when this land soon gets soaked with blood.”

      ……Abubakar Shekau

    All the machinations of vampires, official and unofficial, against people’s will for change shall, God willing, fail.

    I thank God that all hope is not lost for Nigeria in terms of intelligence and discerning minds.
    Hard (studies) work really pays.
    I hope those people cracking their heads with the interpretation of this letter will see how easy the job has been done for them.
    You have shown that wisdom is not how old, but how well.
    You will continue to be a light to your generation.
    Well done!
