Assalm Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh
We ask from Allah to give us power of serving the religion of Allah, and wish and ask victory for all Mujahideen and their tiding to the Ruling of Sharia. With Due respect, Afghanistan since the rise of first century of the Islam till now is a strong and fortified fort of Islam and has played 2nd important rule after Arab Peninsula in spreading of islam in Asia continent. The International heroes of recent Jihad Imam-ul-Mujahideen Sheidh Abdullah Azam, Qaid-ul-Mujahideen Sheih Osama Bin Ladin, Qahir-u-Salibin Abdu Masaab Zarqawai and Qahir-ul-Mulhidin khitab Rahimahumullah were privileged to have graduated from Afghanistan Jihad Madrasaa.
Since the beginning with spirit and Commitment that Mujahideen has began Jihad Against British empire, Russian Invasion and current Jihad against Americans, and has given unlimited sacrifices and Afghanistan Muslim nation and Islamic Emirate is still giving unforgettable sacrifices in this way. And we see that once more the current Jihad against aggressor crusadors is Inshaallah near to the boundaries of victory. American and their allies have almost abandoned the battlefield. Muahideen are expanding their territories day by day by and we hope more victories from Allah in year 1436 so we can get rid of remnants of the enemy. وماذالك علی الله بعزیز
Dears, One of the reason of the American Led occupation was to destroy the Sharia ruled Government in Afghanistan. A sharia Ruled Government which was run according to Quraan and Hadith and according to the jurisdiction of Ahle Suna Wal Jamaa’s clear and transparent jurisdictions and all the rulings in all sections of the government were ran according to these Sharia Jurisdictions. Which caused to eliminate All type of Shirks, Bidaas, Khurafas and Communist concepts.
In the same time Islamic system of Islamic emirate was not tolerable for American led International Kuffar and their attacked it by making different propagandas and pretentions.
Afghan Muslim national under the leadership of Amir-ul-muminin Mullah Mohammad Omar Mujahid (Hafizahullah) bravely organized the line of jihad against occupiers and have given unforeseen sacrifices for the past 13 years to free Afghanistan and establish Islamic government here.
Important to bring to your attention that Islamic emirates Jihadist Policy against the crusaders and international Kuffar is unity of lines and special concentration on unity of Jihad lines.
We have already tested bad experience of Jihad lines division and differences during Soviet invasion and their severe and bad implications which resulted in waste of 14years Jihad, one and Half millions Shuhadaa and hopes of the Islamic Ummah that were linked to this Islamic Jihad.
We would bring the Holy Statement of Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) here: لاَ يُلْدَغُ الْمُؤْمِنُ مِنْ جُحْرٍ وَاحِدٍ مَرَّتَيْنِ
Islamic Emirates strictly insist on the unity of Jihad lines which is the core and Allah says in this regard in Holy Quraan:
إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الَّذِينَ يُقَاتِلُونَ فِي سَبِيلِهِ صَفّاً كَأَنَّهُم بُنيَانٌ مَّرْصُوصٌ (4) الصف
And another verse very clearly forbid Muslims from divisions, differences and internal conflicts and says to muslims: وَأَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَلَا تَنَازَعُوا فَتَفْشَلُوا وَتَذْهَبَ رِيحُكُمْ ۖ وَاصْبِرُوا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَ الصَّابِرِينَ (46) الانفال
Islamic Emirate by adhering and following the above mentioned verses, from its previous Jihadist experiences and understanding the environment of its society, don’t consider the existence of multiple Jihadist lines in benefit of Jihad neither in benefit of Muslims. Because this is one of the specialty of the Afghan environment that internal conflicts and disputes always exist and if the leadership is one then this eliminates the chances of disputes and conflicts.
Until now Islamic emirate has successfully eliminated all Fitnas of disputes, conflicts and division by having unity of lines. And now if there are struggles to have brought another line Jihad or leadership beside Islamic emirates, this will deliberately assist in providing an environment of disputes and divisions. Therefore Islamic emirates conditions the Jihadist operations under the leadership of Emirates and insist on following points:
1. That unity of lines is a need, necessity and obligation, specially when we are in war with American crusader Kuffar. Therefore Jihad in Afghanistan against Occupier American Kuffar and Allies should be under single banner and single leadership.
Afghanistan Islamic Emirate leadership is appointed by 1500 Ulama Council of the country (Ahl Hal , Aqd Shura) by issuing a Sharai Jurisdiction (Fatwa) and their allegiance to Islamic emirate, and Worlds famous Fiqhi Scholar like Al Sheikh Hamud Bin Qalaa Al Shuaibi Rahimullah and Jihadist Leader like Osama bin Laden Rahimahullah have recognized and acknowledged this emirate and still Afghanistan Islamic Emirates is steadily standing and following the same stance and has support and ?? from all follower of Ahle Sunna was Jamaa, and no one has found any thing or point disputed or able of complaining. Therefore is there is no reason from point of view neither of Sharia nor logically to have opened another parallel lines.
2. According to Sharia and sane thinking, This is obligation of Muslims to acquire methods and ways by which they can preserve their islamic society and Sharai and daily life affairs which can guarantee their security, and existence. Islamic Emirate consider their Shar’ai and day to day life goodness in unity and consider division of lines though other names and banners harmful to Jihad and Muslims.
Afghanistan Islamic Emirates wants your goodness since you are our brother in Islam and considering not interfering in your affairs. Same manner we hope the same from you and wishes you only goodness from your side due our brotherhood relationship of Islam. Due to the current Jihad situation in Afghanistan , The goodness of the Muslim and islam is in unity of lines and it’s continuation as a single line and unit.
3. During the Period of its Jihad against Americans and allies, Islamic emirate has given unforgettable defeats to them and except cities have freed all areas from Kuffar occupation, Shirk and other acts which are against Islamic Sharia. And after 2 decades of resistance and steadfastness, Islamic emirates united lines are an ideal and hoping reality for Muslims against America and other enemies of Islam.
American and other enemies of Islam have made numerous attempts pave way of success for its occupation of Afghanistan to divide the lines of the Mujahideen in Afghanistan but as Islamic Emirate has defeated them in military field, so like to defeat them and defuse their future ambitious/destructive plans by strengthening further it’s united lines.
So we wish from Allah not that to happen that in such a sensitive stage, where we already face lots of conspiracies from Kuffar, Your supports should not to such things which will cause disruption in Mujahideens’ commanding, cause disunity and our enemies get to their targets which is bringing divisions among the united lines of Islamic Emirate.
4. In addition to Afghanistan, lots of other Islamic countries so are the victims of Americas cruel conspiracies and are under occupation one way or another. The big cause of failure of muslims against these cruelty is disunity among the muslims and lack of single leadership. So therefore to avoid the disunity Fitna in Afghanistan, Islamic Emirate consider it in goodness of Ummah and Jihad that All Jihadi operation to take place under the united lines of Islamic Emirates. And consider making more parties (Tanzims), slogans against an action against goodness of Islamic norms and against Mujahideen.
5. Islamic Emirate performs it’s Jihad against International Kufar, Shirk and Bidaa practices in accordance to the ruling of Quraan and Sunnah Nabvi, Sharai and Islamic matters are of importance and core and for their transformation into reality need spiritual and financial support of the Muslims from all over the world. So we hope from you respected to not get information from those sources who are not happy from Islamic emirates for different reasonsor been expelled from Holy lines of Jihad due to their crimes. Instead you should directly contact with Islamic Emirate leadership, Formal/introduced media representative and get your satisfaction regarding matters. This will increase trust and confidence among us.
6. Afghanistan Islamic Emirates consider the defeat of USA and NATO as defeat of Crusades in all over the world. And Allah has given this victory to the Muajahideen of Afghanistan for their sincerity, Trust in Allah, Sabr, and unity and Islamic Emirate Leadership further pray to Allah to follow these steps and we hope and wish that other Jiahadi movement throughout the to support us in every manner to transform our Jihad to Victory. We don’t expect from them to divide the lines of the Jihad and cause failure of Mujahideen, and keep us away from the happiness of Kuffar’s Defeat.
7. Afghanistan Islamic Emirate’s Jihad against crusade occupies and important achievements is the result of Allah’s Support and then the result of thousands of martyrs, injured, those who are jail, orphans and widows (the hardship they have faced in this way).
All these sacrifices are made under one leadership and one slogan or banner. We pray to Allah not to happen, if through divisions, disputes among Mujahideen increase. All above mentioned achievement will be wasted due to the divisions of lines and opportunity will be lost.
At the same time this is very clear reality, That Islamic Emirate due to its transparent past, scarifies in the way of Islam and balanced Islamic policies, not only loved by people in Afghanistan but is loved by Muslims all over the world. Now if the people relating themselves to you create problems from Islamic emirates, the Muslims of all over the world would be unhappy from these acts.
8. Now that in different parts of the world Islamic movements, and figures have given unlimited sacrifices and each of them have less or more achievement. Have followers, supporters and place in society. And all the achievement are achieved in very difficult conditions and numerous sacrifices, So our advice to you is that in no part should you create such atmosphere where the services of these movements will be effected, disciplined dismissed, and cause internal disputes. And at last difference of thinking cause blood shedding, we pray to Allah to preserve us from such a situation. Believe us that such action are very badly damaging your popularity and your future activities. This causes martyrdom of Muslims and Salih People. The families of Shahadaa lose hope and give different opportunities to enemies for implementing their conspiracies.
9. This is clear to you that in past 4 or less than 4 decades lots of irregularities, tribal, regional and group disputes/enmities, progressive intervention of Kuffar powers and other problems existed in Afghanistan. And Even now people do exist that who follow their former enmities/disputes from past. Therefore here in Afghanistan this has happened many times that people pretending to be Mujahideen have tried to ruin the image of the Jihaad and Mujahideen but due to the support of Allah with Mujahideen and on other hand familiarity of Emirates leadership with population and people and have vast experience of Jihaad. So Islamic Emirate was able to identify such people and get them out of scenario. And Allah has preserved us very well from such problems.
We pray to Allah not that to happen, now the wonder us that due to your remoteness these selfish and bad people would misuse your name for such actions. So therefore we again insist you to be very attentive towards such danger to avoid any other line in opposition to the exiting lines of Islamic Emirate.
As the main objective of the Jihad is the highness of Kalmatullah and obligation all Muslims and specially Mujahideen. Islamic State should also assist and Support Islamic emirates in keeping its unity and strengthening. Not should the decisions be made from remote that would cause here the unhappiness of the Mujahideens leaders, Scholars, and 1000s of Salih Mujahideens. This will cause in their hate and distance from Islamic state. And Islamic emirate reacts for the preserving of 2 million martyrs blood, and preserving its achievement. We pray to Allah to preserve us from such a situation.
و صلّى الله على نبيّنا محمد وعلی آله و صحبه أجمعين.
