The following is a translation of a flyer being distributed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) in the ar-Raqqa province of Syria. In it, ISIS urges rival factions in the conflict to repent and ask forgiveness from God.
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.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria
