Emir of the Martyrs, Shaykh Abu Mus’ab al-Zarqawi


al-Shaykh Abu Mus’ab al-Zarqawi, Ahmad Fadil Nazzal al-Khalayila, born in the town of al-Zarqaa, Jordan in 1966. In the late 1980s Shaykh al-Zarqawi left Jordan to participate in al-Jihad al-Afghani and to help the oppressed Muslims there. Between 1994 and 1999, Shaykh al-Zarqawi was imprisoned in Jordan because he was trying to stop the evils of society by commanding good and prohibiting evil. Upon his release in 1999, he returned with some of his friends to the Afghanistan-Pakistan area, setting up a training camp in the western Afghan city of Herat. Sayf al-Adl, al-Qaeda military chief (a former Egyptian army colonel who had trained in special operations) describes the life of al-Shaykh in Afghanistan between 1999 and 2001, in his book, “Jihadi Biography of The Leader Abu Mus’ab al-Zarqawi“, where they formed Herat camp (mini Islamic society).

After the US invasion of Afghanistan, al-Shaykh and his brothers moved to the Kurdish areas of northern Iraq in 2002 where they formed Jama’at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad. When Iraq was occupied by the United States and its coalition allies in March-April 2003, al-Shaykh became one of the central figures in declaring al-Jihad against the Americans and coalition forces in Iraq. In 2004, he finally gave al-Bay’a to Shaykh Osama Bin Laden. On January 15, 2006, he formed al-Mujahideen Shura Council, which united al-Qaeda fi Bilad al-Rafidayn (AQI) with five other Jihadi organizations operating in Ard al-Iraq. In April, al-Shaykh al-Zarqawi, delivered his first video message, declared al-Mujahideen Shura Council as “the starting point for establishing the Islamic State“. After struggling in al-Jihad for many years, and inflicting heavy losses on the Americans, he got his Shahada by a US airstrike in June, 2006. He was only 39 years old, but his legacy lives on till today. He was the man who sowed the seed of al-Khilafa. May Allah accept him and grant him al-Firdaws al-A’la.

al-Shaykh Abu Maysara al-Gharib, a former Shari’a Committee Member for both al-Qaea fi Bilad al-Rafidayn and al-Mujahideen Shura Council, wrote a treatise, “From the Hidden History: al-Zarqawi As I Knew Him“. about al-Shaykh personal incident and experience that provided significant personal meaning, and not specifically related to al-Jihad, and the lessons behind them that occurred during him encounters with al-Shaykh Abu Mus’ab.
