My Dream By Adeosun Olamide
I shiver as i write this,,The thought that i had been working for him give me shivers.
Everything seems right,i thought i had procure a seemly conduct here on earth,,but something changed everything overnight,,
All my life,,i have lived in eagerness of meeting my maker,,my begetter,,my creator,, I have always known that their is no greater honour than dying for His course. As a kid born in northern Nigeria in the ancient city of kano,,I grew up with the knowledge of the quran,,i grew up with the incessant day to day activities of my teacher.
I remember we use to seat beneath a tree and listen to his words,,He told and taught us the essence of our lifes,,he told us we were born for a cause,,he told us we were born for a cause,,he told us we we were going to become a course of history and we would appear in the next quran,,he taught us our way of life and the best course to apply to it,,I remembered his last teaching to me before he was killed,,he told me death is a step to pleasure and after demise enjoyment,,He said we would meet in elysium,a place of bliss where their would be delight,,joy,,happiness,,nirvana for all us who died For his cause.
We were told the prophet said A single endeavour of fighting for Allah’s cause is better than the world and whatever is in it,,we were told that we would be martyr’s if we are slain in th way of Allah,,we were told that the prophet ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah alone or pay us the Jiz Yah tribute in submission,,
I m one who equips a warrior going to fight in the way of Allah,,Allah will admit me to paradise with his reward and booty and in paradise i would live a luxorious life,,but to live in paradise we have a simple price to pay:to fight in the way of Allah,,to kill them whereever we find them,to drive them out,,to persecute them and then slay them because that is the recompense of the unbelievers.we were told unto each and everyone of us is 72 virgins if we die in His course.
As a kid all i wanted was to grow up and go to jihad,,all i wanted was to kill,,to kill a christian,,to destroy a church and that Allah be pleased with me.Yet i know that is the least of rewards i was to get. With time i grew up,,with time i had heroes,,with time i had idols.
Osama bin laden visited us more often in our camp then,he suplied us with ammunitions and taught us spirit of life,,he with Ayman al -zawahirs thought us the basis,,He recruited most of us into his multinational stateless army for Jihad,, I never knew why my teacher wont let me go with laden,,
Anwar al -awlaki motivated,inspired us to instill fear in our world,,
Until recently when everything died down did we rise in Nigeria,,The giant of Africa,,we aroused and till sunday we wont stop breaking new grounds,,we almost exceeding Al-qaeda in attacks,,sunday,,is supposed to be the day i would meet the 72 virgins and have the luxirious life i seek,, until this morning when unreality changed my life,,
I never knew how it started,,how i got their,,i never knew how it ended,,all i know is all that matters to me now,,
Everything seemed new,,as i go down the path,,
I heard voices,,I heard them singing to God,,about Jesus and immediately i remember one of the major reasons why we killed christians,,the thought crossed my mind,,,i wondered where i am,,we killed christians because they worshipped Allah as a man,,They insulted him through this,,
As i walked through i kept hearing these beautiful voices singing beautiful songs and all of a sudden,,it stopped,,i couldnt hear them,,and all i could hear is nothing,,nothing,,nothing,,,
In my naked self,,i came to the realization that i ve left the world,,i came to realize that i didnt die doing the jihad and so i may not meet the 72 virgins,,,
All i had in mind was meeting mohammed yusuf,,osama bin laden and all my brothers that had died for the cause of Allah,,
I heard screams,,i heard voices in pain,
I heard them,,they were in agony,,shouting,,screaming in anguish,,i felt their afflictions,,pangs,,throes yet in their scream i hear God criticizes violence,,God denounce brute,,cast aspiration on barbarity,,condems sadism,,and He has disparage on savagery,,
As i heard their screams i felt a strain in my heart and fear gripped me when i heard one of my brothers,,
As i moved closer i saw all of them with their 72 virgins each in fire,,,the virgins strained and tormented,,i couldnt hellp them,,,
I couldnt believe what i saw and suddenly i felt a hand on my shoulder and i heard a voice saying Islam means peace,,A religion of tolerance,,It rejects violence,,and anyone who goes against My will will i cast into the fire,,
The word jihad does not mean holy war,,our enemy is fanatism not other religions,,
You must submit to me,,,
And then i woke up..
Thats my dream,,
