Translation

bismi-llāhi r-raḥmāni r-raḥīm
In the name of God, the Most Gracious the Most Merciful

To everyone who is fighting us from Ahrar ash-Sham and Jabhat al-Nusra, and to the leader of ar-Raqqa’s revolutionaries, and any other faction in ar-Raqqa Province. Whoever among you wishes to repent, God has opened the door of repentance for you, and so we provide to you the following conditions:

1 – Ask forgiveness from God for fighting against us without legitimate reason
2 – Turn over your weapons
3 – Do not belong to any other faction

Note: Handing over the weapons and take the assurance of protection from the tribal leaders loyal to the State and the Islamic Court of Tel Abyad.

Note: The last period of safety is Wednesday, January 29th, 2014.

God has witnessed what we have said. Peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad.

Vice-Governor
The Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria
ar-Raqqa Province
