Ibrahim Al-Najdi: My name is Ibrahim Al-Najdi. I have been commissioned to take care of the sheep of the Islamic State. Allah bestowed these sheep upon us. We took them from the Satan-worshippers on Mt. Sinjar. I am taking care of them for the benefit of the Muslims.
When you obey the Emir, who entrusts you with a mission, it is as if you are obeying the Prophet. The Prophet Muhammad said: “Whoever obeys the Emir, it is as if he is obeying me, and whoever obeys me, it is as if he is obeying Allah.”
My dear brother, wherever you are on the field of Jihad or on the front line, you are a mujahid. If you feed a mujahid, you are a mujahid yourself. If you guard the property of the mujahideen, you are a mujahid too. The Prophet Muhammad said: “You are all shepherds, accountable for your herds.”
That’s his jihad, what’s yours?
