State of the Ummah – Anwar Al Awlaki: Caliphate for global Ummah by 2024
What is behind this Islamic State movement? It is the belief by millions of Muslims that Allah has promised that the global Ummah, or Muslim community, will never go more than 100 years with out a Caliphate or global Islamic empire. The goal is nothing short of the destruction of all governments in the former Caliphate(s) and the unification of those lands into one Sunni Islamic Sharia state under the rule of an Islamic Caliph. The last Caliphate was ended in 1924. The movement of the “Islamic State” led by “caliph” “Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi” is motivated to fight for this new Caliphate and see it come to encompass the entire so-called “Islamic world”, in other words the lands formerly stolen and enslaved by Islam, by the year 2024.
