The twentieth issue of Al-Battar welcomes the approach of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which begins on October 15. Citing historic Ramadan battles in the time of the Prophet and more recently in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Chechnya, and elsewhere, the lead editorial calls for an “eminent deed – the Jihad” at an “eminent time – Ramadan. . . . Here we are now, approaching this Blessed month. Lions of Islam! Make it a new turning point for victory, glory, and power.”
