Some questions come to mind: 1. What does this announcement mean practically, and how will the ummah be affected? 2. Is it not the responsibility of the Khalifah to protect the Muslim’s strong hold, offer assylum to the weak Muslim.. Is it not the responsibility of the Khalifah to offer asylum to the weak Muslims and help them migrate? Will this announcement be used to justify the killing of everyone who does not give bay’ah? Is it only with the agreement of an unkown shura of a particular group of fighters that a khilafah is established?Is it with a single announcement that all other groups world-wide are deemed invalid unless under their banner? Which mujahid on this earth has ever had the audacity to steal the right of this ummah of a shura except them?
