His request for knowledge
Abu Anas al-Shami left Jordan for Saudi Arabia several times to meet sheikhs and scholars, ask them some questions, and discuss with them matters that worried him a lot, including the American presence in the Gulf region. It pained him greatly to arrest the sheikhs Safar al-Hawali, Salman al-Awda, and Nasser al-Omar, and he considered that this triangle was “the safety valve for the nation, and that they are the actual leaders of the Islamic movement.” When he finished his studies at the Islamic University in Madinah, he worked as an imam at Murad Mosque in Al-Irsal neighborhood in the Sweileh area. West of the capital, Amman.

“Abu Anas al-Shami” worked hard to teach Sharia sciences in his mosque, influenced by the thought of Sheikh Dr. Safar al-Hawali, and he was active in the call, and a large number of young people were affected by his proposal. Sheikh Abi Muhammad al-Maqdisi (Issam al-Barqawi), who believes in the infidelity of the ruling Arab regimes and calls for disavowal of them.

Abu Anas al-Shami left Jordan to Bosnia and Herzegovina to teach and preach, then returned to work as a teacher, educator, and volunteer preacher at the Imam al-Bukhari Center, which he helped establish in the northern Marka region in the Jordanian capital, Amman. In March 2003, he was arrested for declaring among his students and followers, “The regime The ruler in Jordan has turned the country into an American military barracks, obeying its orders and ending with its end, and that the next war is not against the Iraqi regime, but rather against Islam.” And that was during the American preparations to launch the war on Iraq, and he was calling on people to oppose the government’s approach to support the Americans and go to Iraq to support the jihad there After that, he was released to go back to urging his students and followers to “jihad against the American occupier” in Iraq.

He goes to Iraq
After he felt that he had “fulfilled what he had to do of the mission of preaching,” he went to Iraq after he spread the news of his intention to travel to Saudi Arabia to work, after he returned from performing Umrah in September 2003, and there he joined the “Tawhid and Jihad” group led by Sheikh Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. .

It wasn't long before people were surprised that "Abu Anas" became the group's legal official and trusted advisor close to Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi. Audio recordings and articles appeared on some jihadist websites on the Internet in which he talks about the battle of Fallujah in April 2004. The importance of these recordings and articles lies in the fact that they have become As a "document" that confirms and clarifies the group's role in the current events in Iraq.

It is not strange for those who knew “Abu Anas al-Shami” to find in his description of the battle some subtleties and jokes, as he has a cheerful spirit that tends to entertain others through laughter, and for this reason he described this incident after he narrated the situation of a battle he fought with one of his colleagues in the battle and they were forced by the pouring American bullets On their heads from sheltering in a shop that sells birds, «After the shooting stopped - he says - «I woke up from the horror of the shock and the birds were expelled from me and I went down with my companion and the shooting had become very severe for us, and I rode my head and became stubborn and I am not usually stubborn and I climbed a house facing them and it did not separate me They were away from them except the street and one house, and I had a grenade with me, so I threw it at them and waited for the sound, but I did not hear anything, because the detonator was Iraqi, and it did not explode, and God is the helper.

So I went down and advanced towards the corner of the branch directly facing them, and was surprised by the heavy rain above it (the pecta) that had entered the branch and advanced and I was face to face with it. I feel that it will collapse and fall, as our brothers here say, and I crouched in my place, and I had only a Kalashnikov rifle [?] with two magazines joined together, and I had emptied one and a half of the magazine, and I had a number of bullets in my dress, so I started filling the magazine and waiting for the outcome.

I don't know,,, but I really felt that my time had not come and that my journey in life was not marked by an expiration, the bastards threw, then they withdrew with safety. I walled up the wall until the end of it, then I went out walking back feeling tired and ringing in my ears that did not subside. Funny, because it was worn out and worn out, and Sheikh Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi was insisting on me to create another one, and I am sorry and tell him this shoe is dear to me, because it was given to me by a dear brother from the Prophet’s city, so I do not overdo it. And he was joking with me and saying: I don't know how he fights a mujahid with such a shoe?

And I wrote on that day to Sheikh Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, informing him that his wish had been fulfilled, and there was a trick between me and my shoes. And he adds, "I wanted to say: We, praise be to God, with the enormity of the danger and the severity of the ordeal, we were living in tranquility and tranquility, with great care and a happy life, and with the thunderstorms, we were joking and laughing as if we were among our safe people, and that is God's grace upon us."

After that, Abu Anas was injured in the battles of Fallujah during the bombing, and he lost the sense of hearing in one of his ears, on April 7, 2004, and he “continued the jihad, going to the mosques, urging the people to support the mujahideen, shelter them, and hide them from the eyes of the occupying Americans.” Many people fulfilled their legal duty towards the mujahideen, and they were a blessing to us.”
