Jihadists released the second issue of Haqiqa magazine, focusing on Muslim imprisonment and migration to Syria.
The second issue was released on June 21, 2017, roughly four months after the release of the first issue.
Differing from Haqiqa’s first issue, which compiled content from other jihadi media groups, the second issue appeared to feature original content. Prison-focused articles discussed a supposed Guantanamo Bay guard’s conversion to Islam, Syria’s “hellhole” Sednaya Prison, and a poem on imprisonment by an “anonymous brother.”
Migration-related articles in the issue focused on Syria. One, entitled, “Going home at Last,” quoted “Abu Muhammad,” whom the article claimed “is planning to make Hijrah,” as stating:
The acceptance of many Disbelievers declined as the signs of my faith became apparent. It’s not hidden from anyone today how difficult life in the West has become for Muslims. All you have to do is open the news. Even some of those, who don’t believe in Hijrah and striving in Allah’s path, have begun to consider migrating.
Another article, “A Word of Advice before Leaving,” stressed the need to receive verification from contacts in Syria prior to migration. It stated:
Please don’t make the mistake to just go on your own without tazkiyah [verification]. At best you will be abused and deceived by those who are after your money. At worst, you will be captured, jailed, tortured or even shot on sight.
The issue also featured part two of a biography of killed Dutch Nusra Front (NF) fighter “Abu Jandal,” the first installment of which featured in issue one of Haqiqa. Written by his brother, the article narrated that after suffering an injury from an explosion, he was eventually taken to a hospital in Turkey, where he died three days later.
The Haqiqa issue also featured graphics attributed to the pro-AQ Green Bird Media, and promoted the social media accounts of “Life in Syria,” a media group run by jihadists in Syria.
