A man purported to be the leader of the terrorist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is seen in this frame from a video recording posted on the Internet on July 5, 2014.
The Iraqi government has dismissed as bogus a video that purports to show the leader of the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Iraqi Interior Ministry spokesman, Brigadier General Saad Maan, told Reuters that the footage allegedly showing Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi at a mosque in central Mosul, located some 400 kilometers (250 miles) northwest of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, was “indisputably” not him.

“We have analyzed the footage...and found it is a farce,” Maan said, adding that Iraqi government forces had recently wounded Baghdadi in an airstrike and he had been transferred by the ISIL militants to Syria for medical treatment.
A 21-minute video posted on social media on Saturday showed a man clad in a long black robe and a black turban with a long graying beard addressing people at what looked like a mosque.

During the sermon, the man calls on all Muslims to obey him and urges people to follow his call to create a “caliphate,” or what he considers an Islamic state, in Iraq and Syria. The man says Muslims are sinners if they do not seek this goal of establishing an “Islamic state.”

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is a nom de guerre, rather than the real name of the person who is referred to as the ISIL’s leader.


The Takfiri militant group, which has seized large swathes of Iraq through assistance by former Iraqi army officers associated with the defunct Ba’ath party and executed dictator, Saddam Hussein, is bankrolled by Saudi Arabia.

More than one million Iraqis have fled their homes over the past month as the ISIL terrorists seized Mosul, Tikrit and other cities in the northwest areas.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has said Saudi Arabia and Qatar are responsible for the security crisis and growing terrorism in his country.

"Berfikir tanpa kotak"

Ar Ra'isul Mutakallim, Tabligh Ki Zabaan (Lidah Tabligh) Hadrat Maulana Umar Palanpuri Rahmatullahu 'alaihi berkata: "Orang yang kuat adalah orang yang sanggup bertahan dalam arus kerosakan. Orang yang lebih kuat adalah orang yang sanggup melawan arus kerosakan. Namun orang yang paling kuat adalah orang yang sanggup merubah arah arus kerosakan hingga menjadi akannya arus kebaikan.”

“Dajjal bersama tenteranya mempunyai kekuatan yang amat istimewa dan amat tersusun. Begitu juga Yakjuj dan Makjuj membuat huru-hara di seluruh dunia. Kehebatan mereka tiada siapa yang dapat melawan dan orang beriman berundur dengan hanya makan zikir dan tasbih."

"Allah zahirkan kudratnya hanya dengan labah-labah yang kecil dijadikan asbab untuk menggigit tengkuk-tengkuk mereka hingga mati. Mayat mereka begitu busuk diseluruh dunia. Orang beriman tidak tahan terus berdoa pada Allah. Allah ta'ala hantarkan hujan dan banjir menghanyutkan mereka ke laut. Inilah yang akan berlaku di akhir zaman nanti."

"Amalan dakwah memisahkan hak dan batil seperti air menghanyutkan sampah dari emas dan logam-logam yang lain. Namun pekerja² agama jika wujud cinta dunia dalam hati mereka seperti emas dan disaluti logam-logam lain, maka banyak masalah yang akan timbul.”
