Osama's Will - Kids, Don't Join Al Qaeda

The Telegraph is reporting that Osama bin Laden left a 4-page will in which he urges his kids not to follow his path.

The instruction to his 24 children not to fight jihad cites a precedent from the Islamic texts. Omar bin al-Khattab, the successor of the Prophet Mohammad as Islam's leader, also left written instructions to his son, Abdullah, not to wage holy war.

Bin Laden's four wives were ordered not to find new husbands and focus on raising his offspring. "Don't consider marrying again, and devote yourselves to your children and guide them to the right path," the will states.
