You heard it here first. The new issue of Sada al-Malahim should be out soon. Of great curiosity this time will be whether or not the organization addresses al-Awfi's confessions, whether it actually puts out its own fatawa or whether it continues to crib some from earlier writers and what, if anything, it has to say on the south.

I doubt we will hear much on the last point - particularly given al-Wahayshi's latest statement, but the betting windows are still open.
