Al-Shimali joined Al-Qaeda in Iraq in 2005, continuing his association with Daesh when it was emerged. He served as a key leader in Daesh’s Immigration and Logistics Committee.
He helped foreigners travel to fight in Syria, usually via the Syrian border town of Jarabulus. Al-Shimali and his logistics teams also controlled smuggling, financial transfers and movement of supplies into Syria and Iraq from Europe. He was in charge of receiving volunteers in the Syrian city of Azaz.

Al-Shamali married three women; the last one was the Saudi-born Reema al-Girish, who wanted to the Saudi security forces in June 2015 because of her joining to Daesh in 2014.
