Islamic Emirate: Sacred Jihad is a Divine Obligation and Moral Responsibility


Post via Islamic Emirate

War is an act contrary to human nature and civilization. A wise person does not like fighting rather hates the devastative and gruesome impact of war. A person of sound temperament prefers to lead a civilized life in harmonious atmosphere of peace with others. Every human wants preservation of his religion, life, property, family and honor. To realize these desires of human beings and to worship Almighty Allah in an atmosphere of peace, it was the blessings and grace of Almighty Allah that He, the Almighty revealed Islamic system to provide legitimate demands and necessities of human beings, to stop violation of individual’s and social rights by unscrupulous people and to restrain the hands of people who want to play with life and future of the people and create chaos.

An important part of Islamic system is jihad. Jihad is sacred fighting made obligatory upon Muslims by Almighty Allah for the prevention of oppression, barbarism and brutality and to pave the way for a peaceful life and elimination of mischief on earth. This is the reason that Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran.

أُذِنَ لِلَّذِينَ يُقَاتَلُونَ بِأَنَّهُمْ ظُلِمُوا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ نَصْرِهِمْ لَقَدِيرٌ} (الحج – ۳۹)

Permission (to take up arms) is hereby given to those who are fought against, because they have been oppressed. (Verse:39, Chapter:22)

Almighty Allah has commanded us in Chapter Al Baqara (the Cow) that standing of Mujahideen against transgressors and defeat of tyrants and mischief-makers like Goliath on the field of fighting is necessary in order to reform the system on earth. Contrarily, staying away from jihad and not protecting religious values would have devastating impact on entire world as a whole.

{وَلَوْلَا دَفْعُ اللَّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُم بِبَعْضٍ لَّفَسَدَتِ الْأَرْضُ وَلَٰكِنَّ اللَّهَ ذُو فَضْلٍ عَلَى الْعَالَمِينَ} (البقرة – ۲۵۱).

Had Allah not defeated some by the might of others, the earth would have been utterly corrupted. But Allah is a Lord of kindness to His creatures. (Verse:251, Chapter:2)

The entire world knows that American invaders and their brutal army have created chaos in our beloved country during past fifteen years. Afghans have suffered enormous brutalities committed by them, innocent people were massacred, entire villages and areas demolished and they have even not show mercy to women, children and civilians. Furthermore, there oppression was moral mischief and promotion of secularism. They spent billions of dollars to deviate Afghans from their culture, national traditions and moral values. Most importantly, they invaded our blessed land, usurped the freedom and sovereignty of our country and imposed war on us. These brutalities of invaders have compelled Afghans to take up arms against oppression for the protection of their religion, life, property and honor and to practically implement the Divine commandment regarding the obligation of Jihad.

These are the reasons that recent statement of Islamic Emirate considers continuation of sacred Jihad necessary for protection of life, property and honor of the people. But at the same time the Islamic Emirate has kept the doors open for people in opposition through Sharia based invitation and guidance program, wants prevention of civilian casualties and has given assurance to all Afghans regarding protection of their life and property. In one part of the statement, it has been mentioned that “during the planning of Omari Operations, Mujahideen have been unequivocally instructed to pay specific attention to civilians and public installations during implementation of their operations.……..during Omari operations, Islamic Emirate is committed to protect life and property of the residents in those areas, villages and cities where Mujahideen establish their control and Islamic Emirate consider it her own responsibility.”
