We posted the disturbing manifesto of the murderer of four marines in Chattanooga, Mohammad Abdulazeez below here followed by our analysis of the man, his spiritual condition and his life. When the Daily Beast and the rest of the media cherry-picked statements, they did not present the manifesto at its fullest and did not include key statements. How could the entire media miss: ” … almost every one of the Sahaba [disciples of Muhammad] was a political leader or an army general? Every one of them fought Jihad for the sake of Allah. Every one of them had to make sacrifices in their lives”?
Abdulazeez, while he wrote about escaping the prison of what he termed Dunya (this world), in reality (and this is typical of all such cases), he was living in his own prison, dreaming daily of hellfire, and with only one way out: to start a hell on earth against whom he perceived as enemy of Islam, in order to go to heaven (which in reality is hell).
This reversalist theology is the signature of Islam, that the only way out is through martyrdom. He clearly defined Islam as what Islam is “to fight Jihad for the sake of Allah”. It is for this reason, Abdulazeez executed innocent people in the US for the cause of Islam. The US government keeps track of all terrorist statements on the internet. Why didn’t they prevent this terrorist from committing violence? Well, they would have to watch or arrest every other Muslim living in the U.S. Being the typical Palestinian, the family lived doing the splits in which one foot was in Nablus (Palestine) while the other was in the U.S. These rarely leave behind the Palestinian mindset. This is the usual case, while the American who knew him had the typical lacking view “He was a devout Muslim and used to talk about his families’ prayer habits, and that always interested me to hear about his culture,” said Samantha Barnette, another former classmate. Yet another who knew him “Schraeder” said that he “does not believe Abdulazeez was an extremist” and another Dizdarevic, said that he “can’t believe Abdulazeez was radicalized through anyone in Chattanooga”.
These are the stupid masses in the U.S. who never get it. It is never just about “culture”, it is about an ideology of conquering the enemy from within. They believe that radicalization is some process and could only happen from outside the U.S. when the internet has access to everything radical. Islam is fed as milk from birth. It is the stupidity of Americans that is the cause of their blindness. The most obvious is that since he went to “Palestine” for long visits, he joined and trained with Hamas. When he killed the four Marines, Abdulazeez was carrying an AK-47-style rifle and a lot of ammunition, a law enforcement official said. His blog can be read at the bottom of this article or by clicking [here].
Abdulazeez was a Palestinian with origins in Nablus in the West Bank in the state of Palestine, born in Kuwait, a cage fighter who Muslims on the internet are now praising.
Abdulazeez’s father, Youssuf Abdulazeez, third person to the right on the bottom, is most definitely a fundamentalist Muslim who studied at Texas A&M, (see Facebook, caption below), was appointed as a ‘special policeman’ for Chattanooga’s Department of Public Works in March 2005 and was investigated several years ago for ‘possible ties to a foreign terrorist organization,’ the New York Times reported.
Citing unnamed law enforcement officials, the paper said the gunman’s father was at one point on a terrorist watch list and was questioned while on a trip overseas. This is likely affiliation to Hamas since ISIS was not established yet.
Two women from the family were arrested, as the AP reported, and were led out of the house in handcuffs. A reporter saw a SWAT team and FBI agents staging at a strip mall in Hixson near the shooter’s house. Police in Hixson kicked a reporter out of the neighborhood that contained a house apparently owned by Abdulazeez. However, the Associated Press reported that two women were led out in handcuffs.
Once his father, absolutely a fundamentalist, found about about Mohammad’s mixed martial arts matches and attended one, he slapped his son after the match. He lost, but it wasn’t because of the loss.
The father told the son after the match (in Atlanta) that it was forbidden within Islamic scripture to slap another man on the face, and he witnessed too much of that during the cage match. Mohammad then quit mixed martial arts.
The father connects on his Facebook with friends like one code-name Abu Qais whose Facebook page is littered with videos and photos. You can find how Hamas amphibious attack using AK47’s on a beachfront. His support for Hamas martyrs … you name it. Ditto for Osama Karsou.
His relative, Sue Abdelaziz/Abdulazeez, rails on Israel in support of Gaza: “Everyone is talking about supporting the people in Gaza and wanting to end the horrors against humanity being committed by Israel. Here’s something very simple you can do: boycott.” “The American media is finally shedding a microscopic look on the truth of Palestinean Israeli relations by finally talking about Tariq Khdeir.”
The girl on the bottom far left of the family photo, (4th girl to the left) is Didi Aziz. When Shoebat.com looked through her Facebook page as well as Abdulazeez’s father’s Facebook page and found the typical and common pro-Palestinian propaganda and Hamas sympathies amongst the family, friends and relatives:
In his yearbook entry for Red Bank High School, where he was a starter for the varsity wrestling team, he wrote between two pictures of himself: ‘My name causes national security alerts. What does yours do?’ This could be a result of his connections with his father’s past that he was on a terror watch list.
Mohammad Abdulazeez was also a martial artist who trained and competed in mixed martial arts (MMA), and there is a video of the one cage fight that he was in:
Martial arts are quite popular amongst Muslims, since they try to fulfill the Islamic scripture that states: “The strong believer is more beloved to Allah than the weak believer, but there is goodness in both.” (Sahih Muslim 2664) Here is his fight photo:
After the attack, ISIS posted this message to Americans: “O American dogs, soon you will see wonders”
The term, soon you will see wonders, is very popular amongst the ISIS jihadist, as they love to post up the Islamic song (nasheed), Qariban Qariba, which means “soon, soon,” which can be heard here:
The lyrics are:
Soon, soon, you will see the wondrous sight….A fierce conflict and you will see.
In the heart of your abode, there shall be the battles…..for your destruction, my sword has been sharpened.
We have marched by night, to cut and behead…..By the knife of revenge, targeting those who deserve it.
With the specters of the night and the youth of terror…..and an explosion of woe, that he may be defeated.2You have begun to fight me, with the lost coalition…..So taste my fury, when it fires up.
For long shall you remain, in my war shall you lose…..With what shall you meet, a youth chanting the takbeer?
When the steed roams, raises its head, and leaps forth…..Thus it becomes a lighted blaze.
The bullets have blazed, and the revenge has come…..So where is the escape, O the most evil of the creatures?
Unto you we will come, with beheading and death…..With fright and silence, we will tear the bonds.
You have failed publicly, so taste the loss….and go back fleeing, a nightlong run.
When disbelief gets agitated, froths, and stirs up…..We fill the roads, with red blood;
By the stabbing of the bayonets, by the striking of the necks…..on the assembly of the dogs, when they marshal.
We have come, we have come; we have set off with determination…..In earnest we have proceeded, to the peak of the peaks.
We dive into deaths, we close the ranks…..We die standing, as lions of courage.
But, to be accurate, the tweet does not prove that ISIS was involved in the Chattanooga attack. The ISIS tweet came up at 1:34 PM Chattanooga time, hours after the attack, which occurred at almost 11:00 AM Chattanooga time. Blogs and other news sights, such as Jihad Watch, Pamela Geller and Newsmax, missed the timezone when they posted that the tweet came after the attack when it was public news.
However, this does not eliminate that these assessments of Abdulazeez being an ISIS lone-wolf since the question becomes as to how did ISIS’s Abu Muhammad Al-Kharasani guess that the attack was carried out by a Muslim? ISIS would have had pie on their face since the fact of the killer’s Muslim religion was announced only hours after his tweet.
But what we know for sure, is that Abdulazeez is Palestinian, born in Kuwait and is an Islamist. He maintained a short-lived blog that hinted at his religious inner life. Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez’s blog had only two posts, both published July 13 and written in a popular style of Islamic religious reasoning.
As it could easily be concluded, the Daily Beast’s assessments of the blog is the assessments of liberals and lacks the full truth. A Prison Called Dunya, he clearly referred to the temporal world which he was imprisoned and wanted to escape to the afterlife.
“We often talk about the Sahaba (disciples) and their Ibada (worship). We talk about their worshiping at night, making thikr (reading Quran), reading quran, fasting, sala (prayer). But did you ever notice that in one certain period towards the end of the lives of the Sahaba [Muhammad’s disciples], almost every one of the Sahaba was a political leader or an army general? Every one of them fought Jihad for the sake of Allah. Every one of them had to make sacrifices in their lives and some even left all their wealth to make hijrah to Medina.”
This preparation for heaven and “Jihad for the sake of Allah,” seems to show that he was preparing for martyrdom.
Regarding this “afterlife” he writes: “They would do this because they know and have been told that they will be rewarded with pleasures that they have never seen.”
This sentiment to catapult to the afterlife takes no rocket scientist to understand, and was expressed by his admirers as well. Shoebat.com was able to find two statements from Muslims in America on the internet, one glorying him copulating with 72 virgins in the Islamic paradise:
“the Sahaba (RA) were people being like priests living in monasteries is not true. All of them towards the end of the lives were either a mayor of a town, governor of a state, or leader of an army at the frontlines. The Sahaba (RA) were very involved in establishing Islam in the world. Their mission was to establish Islam and live it.”
Islam is a system which includes warfare. Shoebat.com was able to find Mohammad Abdulazeez’s Intelius page, which shows names of his relatives and that he lived in Arizona:
We also found a letter by Mohammad written to AAON, requesting an engineering position:
The story should teach Americans that these terrorists are amongst us. His job resume is like any ordinary resume, while his inner soul is clogged with hatred to the society that aided his career which was expressed by his heinous crime.
We also found this information page showing Mohammad’s contact information, such as his number and address, and it as well shows that he worked for YMax Communications:
So as it seems, Abdulazeez was angry. His spiritual condition was that he was ready for any spark to ignite his desire to be killed (martyred). The hatred brewed most when three days before the murder of the four marines, Muslims in Chattanooga staged a protest against the release of Robert Drogart, who was caught planning on putting bombs in Islamburg, NY, which is an Islamic dominated area. Drogart was indicted for soliciting another person to put a bomb in a mosque, a cafeteria and a school in Islamburg, saying that Islamberg “must be utterly destroyed” according to court records. The judge, Susan K. Lee, “ordered Doggart released from federal custody under conditions including home detention, psychiatric treatment and drug testing, refraining from possessing a firearm and posting a $30,000 bond.”
Enraged Muslims took the streets in Chattanooga, and three days later, his spark ignited and four marines were slaughtered by Mohammad Abdulazeez who saw it as the time for his paradise.
Ironically it is common for Palestinian terrorists to target soldiers. Another Mohammad Yousuf Abdulazeez was just thrown into prison in Israel last week for planning to kill Israeli soldiers. The more that Palestinian immigrants, as well as all Muslim immigrants come to the US, expect more killings of US soldiers and law enforcement.
Shoebat.com has been warning of these types of incidents. To better understand what is planned for the U.S., access The ISIS Manifesto.
We must be as candles that burn and melt in order to be a light to the world. In life always remember, Christians who are persecuted resemble Christ’s body “For I was hungry and you gave Me food …” So please consider the serious issue on Christian persecution, which will increase as we see the falling away unfolds before our very eyes. We are (Rescue Christians) who simply do what the label says “rescue Christians”. To see an example out of the thousands we rescue, click here, and listen to the amazing testimonies first hand on how you can help and make a difference, now in this life and for eternity.
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal”. CONSIDER DONATING TO RESCUE CHRISTIANS

Understanding Islam: The Story of the Three Blind Men
There were three blind men that wanted to know what an elephant looks like. Somebody took them to the zoo and directed them to the elephant cage. Since they cannot see, they used their sense of touch to get a description of the appearance of the elephant.
They went around the elephant touching it from different parts. One of the blind men grabbed the ear of the elephant, the second one grabbed the foot, and the third one grabbed the tail of the elephant.
When they went back people were asking them, “what do you know about the elephant?” The one who grabbed the ear said, “Well the elephant is very wide and flat”. The other two became upset and said, “No, that is not correct”. The one who grabbed the foot said, “He’s wrong. It’s just like the trunk of a tree”. The third one said “Both of you don’t know what you are talking about, the elephant is like a long rope”. They continued arguing and could not come to an agreement on the appearance of the elephant.
Why did they get this different understanding of what an elephant is? It was because of their physical impairment and being limited to their sense of touch. They were all telling the truth and described to the best of their knowledge. But they were accusing the others of lying. Why? Because they don’t know where the others are coming from.
As Muslims, we often do this. We have a certain understanding of Islam and keep a tunnel vision of what we think Islam is. What we know is Islam and everything else is not. And we don’t have appreciation for other points of view and accept the fact that we may be missing some important parts of the religion.
Because Islam is a comprehensive religion we need to know everything from its message. The more comprehensive our knowledge of it is, the better our understanding of it will be and of what goes on around us.
We often talk about the Sahaba (RA) and their Ibada. We talk about their worshiping at night, making thikr, reading quran, fasting, sala. But did you ever notice that in one certain period towards the end of the lives of the Sahaba (RA), almost every one of the Sahaba (RA) was a political leader or an army general?
- Every one of them fought Jihad for the sake of Allah
. Every one of them had to make sacrifices in their lives and some even left all their wealth to make hijrah to Medina.
So this picture that you have in your mind that the Sahaba (RA) were people being like priests living in monasteries is not true. All of them towards the end of the lives were either a mayor of a town, governor of a state, or leader of an army at the frontlines.
- The Sahaba (RA) were very involved in establishing Islam in the world.
Their mission was to establish Islam and live it.
Abdullah Ibn Masood (RA) said “The companions of the Prophet (SAW) were the least superficial of the people”. They were very simple in the lives that they led and they were comprehensive in their understanding of Islam and applied what they knew. And that’s why they are considered to be the best generation that ever lived. After the prophets, they were the best human beings that ever lived.
We ask Allah to make us follow their path. To give us a complete understanding of the message of Islam, and the strength the live by this knowledge, and to know what role we need to play to establish Islam in the world.
A Prison Called Dunya
July 13, 2015
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the Name of Allah (SWT), the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
A Prison Called Dunya
Imagine that you are taken by force and placed in a prison. Once in the prison you realize that the living arrangements in this prison really aren’t that bad. There is a sun room, a TV to watch, computer to use, phone, different kinds of food, and even a section for exercise. After spending a couple weeks in the prison you get used to it and develop a routine. You still aren’t sure why you are in prison, or how long you will be there, but you are comfortable in your life. At this time one of the guards enters with a large folder that he hands you. You open the folder and read its instructions, stating that you will be spending the next couple years in this prison, and at the end of this term you will be given a test at a random time. It could be in 2 years or it could be in 4. The instructions state that passing this exam will result in you being released to the city of your choice and your living expenses will be paid as well as an allowance. Failing will lead to your transfer to another prison cell, one that has no windows or accessories except a hole in the ground for you to relieve yourself, and your meals will be the same oats and water day after day until you die.
A study guide for the test is included in the folder, and you are left alone. Put yourself in this position. What would you do?
I would imagine that any sane person would devote their time to mastering the information on the study guide and stay patient with their studies, only giving time for the other things around to keep themselves focused on passing the exam. They would do this because they know and have been told that they will be rewarded with pleasures that they have never seen.
Anyone who chooses to indulge in the activities around them and spend part or none of their time studying would surely live the rest of their life in remorse.
Allah (SWT) says in the quran (Surat Al-Hadid Verse 20):
اعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا لَعِبٌ وَلَهْوٌ وَزِينَةٌ وَتَفَاخُرٌ بَيْنَكُمْ وَتَكَاثُرٌ فِي الْأَمْوَالِ وَالْأَوْلَادِ ۖ كَمَثَلِ غَيْثٍ أَعْجَبَ الْكُفَّارَ نَبَاتُهُ ثُمَّ يَهِيجُ فَتَرَاهُ مُصْفَرًّا ثُمَّ يَكُونُ حُطَامًا ۖ وَفِي الْآخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ وَمَغْفِرَةٌ مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَرِضْوَانٌ ۚ وَمَا الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا مَتَاعُ الْغُرُورِ
Know that the life of this world is but amusement and diversion and adornment and boasting to one another and competition in increase of wealth and children – like the example of a rain whose [resulting] plant growth pleases the tillers; then it dries and you see it turned yellow; then it becomes [scattered] debris. And in the Hereafter is severe punishment and forgiveness from Allah and approval. And what is the worldly life except the enjoyment of delusion.
Rasulullah (SAW) says in the following Sahih (Authentic) hadith:
عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم الدُّنْيَا سِجْنُ الْمُؤْمِنِ وَجَنَّةُ الْكَافِرِ
2956 صحيح مسلم كِتَاب الزُّهْدِ وَالرَّقَائِقِ
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The world is a prison for the believer and a paradise for the unbeliever.”
Source: Sahih Muslim 2956
Subhnallah, this life we are living is nothing more than a test of our faith and patience. It was designed to separate the inhabitants of Paradise from the inhabitants of Hellfire, and to rank amongst them the best of the best and worst of the worst. Don’t let the society we live in deviate you from the task at hand. Take your study guide, the Quran and Sunnah, with strength and faith, and be firm as you live your short life in this prison called Dunya. Allah (SWT) says live for this life and the hereafter according to their length. Rasulullah says the life on this world compared to the hereafter is like a drop compared to an ocean.
Brothers and sisters don’t be fooled by your desires, this life is short and bitter and the opportunity to submit to allah may pass you by. Take his word as your light and code and do not let other prisoners, whether they are so called “Scholars” or even your family members, divert you from the truth. If you make the intention to follow allahs way 100 % and put your desires to the side, allah will guide you to what is right.
لثاني: عن أنس رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فيما يرويه عن ربه عز وجل قال:
“ إذا تقرب العبد إلي شبراً تقربت إليه ذراعاً، وإذا تقرب إلي ذراعاً تقربت منه باعاً، وإذا أتاني يمشي أتيته هرولة” ((رواه البخاري)).
Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Allah says: ‘ When a slave of Mine draws near to Me a span, I draw near to him a cubit; and if he draws near to Me a cubit, I draw near to him a fathom. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him running.”‘.
We ask Allah to be pleased with us, reward us with Janna, and we seek refuge from his anger and the punishment of the Fire.
