This image seems to have been produced before Usama bin Ladin’s death on 5 January 2011, partly because it makes use of a traditional prayer phrase usually reserved for the living, “hafizahu Allah” (“may Allah keep him safe”), after Bin Ladin’s name at the top. The top caption also includes a calligraphic representation of Bin Ladin’s name, and reads in its entirety as follows: “shaykh al-mujahidin usama bin ladin, hafizahu Allah” (“leader of the mujahidin [fighters], Usama bin Ladin, may Allah keep him safe”).
In the center against a green colored banner appears the caption which contains a quote from UBL: “inna tanzim al-qa‘ida lan yamut bi-mawti, wal-mu’minin bi-fardiyyat al-jihad didda a‘da’ al-islam yatawaldun wa-yatakatharun bil-sa‘at, la bil-ayyam…!” (“Indeed the al-Qa‘ida organization will not die with my death, and those who believe in the duty of jihad against the enemies of Islam are [sic.] multiply by generation and become numerous in hours, not days…!”).
The image contains pictures of several important figures in the global jihadi network, including Bin Ladin, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Abu al-Nur al-Maqdisi (of the group Jund Ansar Allah) and Abu Yahya al-Libi.
