Usama was never a Da’eshi (ISIS).

Bismillahi Ramaani Raheem,
Praise is due to the Lord of the worlds, peace and blessing is upon the one who is sent with mercy to the worlds, and upon his family and all of his companions.
As for what comes next,
Attesting to the scholars and leaders of Jihad by Al-Baghdadi’s group, on top of them the Martyr of Islam Usama bin Laden, may Allah have mercy upon him, remembers me of two issues.
The 1st issue:
Attesting to the father of Prophets Ibrahim, peace be upon him, by the Jews and the Christians. The Jews say that Ibrahim was a Jew, and the Christians say that Ibrahim was a Christian. But Allah The Truth glory be Him said: “Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was one inclining toward truth, a Muslim [submitting to Allah ]. And he was not of the polytheists. Indeed, the most worthy of Abraham among the people are those who followed him [in submission to Allah ] and this prophet, and those who believe [in his message]. And Allah is the ally of the believers. (3:67-68)
The 2nd issue:
Is the statement of the Khawarij that they are closer to the Prophet, SalAllahu Alayhi wa Selam, than the companions, may Allah be pleased with them. They said to the son of the uncle of the Prophet, SalAllahu Alayhi wa Selam, his son in law, his knight, who witnessed many scenes with him, and fought with him, and the Prophet, SalAllahu Alayhi wa Selam, died while he was pleased with him and he brought him the glad tidings that he will enter Paradise, and that he was to him like Haaron was to Musa. But the Khawarij said about him: “You changed and you deviated and you abandoned and you judged by other than Allah has revealed, and we are more knowledgeable than you about the methodology of the Prophet!” And they said similar things to all of the Sahaba, May Allah be pleased with them. The inevitable result was that they took ignorant leaders who deviated them from accepting from the companions over whom Allah the Highest and his Prophet, peace be upon to him, testified. They deviated and deviated others and became the dogs of hellfire.
Concerning the 1st issue:
One of the replies of Allah on this was “Why do you argue about that of which you have no knowledge?” (3:66) As-Shawqaani said: “He said this about that which they have not witnessed, and not seen, and not observed.” And we reply to the followers of Al-Baghdadi with the proof of Allah the Highest, and say to them: “These leaders which you mentioned, that were on the methodology of truth, and that Al-Qaedah of today changed from their methodology.” We say to them; “These people were amongst us! We lived years with them! We know their methodology very well, and their opinions, and we studied under them, we traveled with them, we lived in easy times with them and saw their situation in harsh times, we crossed rivers and mountains with them, and we lived with them in the trenches, we know their knights and days, we accompanied them in times of war and in times of peace! We saw them while the mortars were falling in front of them, and the missiles were fired upon them, and the spying planes were flying above their heads! And we know their manners by the many dealing we had with them, amongst us were those who had the relationship of brothers and friends with them, and amongst us were those who had the relationship of parents with them, we served them and they served us, they accompanied us and we accompanied them, we consulted with them and they consulted with us! We took knowledge from them, and morals, and high manners, and good behaviors of mercy and compassion with the Muslims, and pride towards the disbelievers. We saw their truthfulness in Jihad and their high noble goals, and the understanding of etiquette’s and rules, their verdicts reminded people of Allah, and made people afraid of hellfire, and made people long for His rewards. But you do not have a portion with them, except general statement which all people hear (from them), and you do not have a portion with them except images of them. So, why do you argue about that of which you have no knowledge?”
We say to you what Al-Faarooq Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, said to a person who gave a witnessed about someone who Al-Faarooq wanted to know about with evidence, so he asked if someone knew him. A person said he knew him, so Al-Faarooq said to him: “By what do you know him?” He said: “By fairness and goodness.” Al-Faarooq said: “How do you know this, is he a close neighbor of yours, and do you know his nights and days, and his coming and going?” The man said no. Al-Faarooq asked: “Than did you have a financial experience of commerce with him in order for you to know that he fears Allah?” The man said no. Al-Faarooq asked further: “Did he accompany you in a travel then by which you know his good manners?” The man said no. Al-Faarooq said: “Then you do not know him!” This man wanted to witness for a person just because he saw him sitting everyday in the mosque.
Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, did not accept his witness. So how can your witness be accepted while you did not even see these leaders and scholars, and did not sit with them for just once? Even your leaders and on top of them Al-Baghdadi did not have a portion with Shaykh Usama and his companions, except his portion like that of the general people, and except for very few letters who were not even to your leaders but about your leaders, which above all they knowingly disobey and do not practice what is written in them except what corresponds with their whims and desires. And Shaykh Abu Yahya Al-Libi, may Allah have mercy upon him, wrote to me that the brothers in Iraq do the opposite of what we order them to do in our letters!
So you do not know them! This according to the understanding of Al-Faarooq, may Allah be pleased with him.
As for the 2nd issue:
We say to its companions: Usama was never a Khariji! And those most close to Usama is Ayman and his companions. They are the ones he knew and they know him, and if Usama, and Atiyatullah, and Abu Yahya, were still alive, you would have said about them the same thing you said about others besides them. Because they would certainly and definitely stand against your actions and they would warn against you, and then you would try in vain to cover the sun with a holed sifter.
If they were alive you would have found that the behavior of Shaykh Ayman was very merciful towards you, because we know the harshness of the two scholars Atiyatullah and Abu Yahya, may Allah have mercy upon them, against the people of extremism and the extremism of arrogant pride against the creation, and those who raise their noses and mouths against the scholars and people of goodness. If they were alive they (ISIS) would have received the biggest share from them! And they would be the biggest deviants according to your list. And you would have unleashed your arrows against them which you did not yet unleash against the wise Shaykh Ayman, may Allah protect him, and those scholars with him of goodness and advise.
Their methodology was not that of making takfir upon those who differ with them, with doubtful evidences, and after that sending cars filled with explosives and armed men who plunge in their houses!
And their methodology was not that of killing women and children of the disbelievers on purpose! Let alone the killing of Muslim women and children, or even the Mujahideen on purpose!
Their methodology was not that of rushing towards an Islamic state and positions and fighting over the crumbs of this world.
And their methodology was not that of cursing and slandering and obscenity which bursts out of your tongues on every forum.
Their methodology was not that of bragging about drinking the blood of Muslims and living amongst their corpses.
And their methodology was not that of raising the noses and mouths against the righteous scholars and slandering them and dropping them just over a difference of opinion.
Their methodology was not that of violating against the Muslim Ummah and taking away their rights.
And their methodology was not that of Taqiyah (deceiving) and twisting and turning and constant tricking.
Their methodology was not that of running away from the Sharia of Allah fearing that it would judge against them.
Their methodology was not that of extremism in issues of personal opinion (Ijdtihaad) and distancing oneself from those who differ with you in these issues.
Their methodology was not that of dropping those who differ in opinion and ignoring all his good deeds because of one bad deed.
Their methodology was not that of fanaticism over leaders and entities, and building alliances and enmity upon this ugly fanaticism.
This was never the methodology of Usama and Al-Qaedah and it never will be!
