Post via Islamic Emirate
The history of our beloved country shows that religious scholars were at the head of every resistance against foreign occupiers with the people standing beside them as a cement wall. The past history is repeating itself once more. After one and half decade of Jihad, by the grace of the Almighty Allah and due to the sacrifices of the Mujahideen and support of the people, this blessed movement has now turned into an Islamic and national uprising against the invaders and their domestic hirelings all over the country. From Badakhshan province to the vast Paktia, from Herat to Nangarhar and from Helmand to Kandahar, the entire nation is engaged under a sole leadership in their Jihadic efforts for the achievement of a common goal, i.e. to end occupation and implement Islamic system in this blessed land.
The enemy wants to divide Afghans under false slogans which are attractive on the outside but have imperialistic motives behind them. Their atrocities against the nation during the decade and a half and their false claims of prosperity and development are an open secret to the Afghans.
Experiences have shown that a nation can only preserve its faith and values and achieve sustainable development when it is independent. Imperialism tries to strip nations of their identity and ravages values that are dear to the people. Therefore they are trying to change their culture and values. On the one hand, they exploit their natural resources and on the other they render them without an identity. Protection of this land from the invaders and defending national and Islamic values is the responsibility of the entire Afghan nation. When independence is achieved, no Afghan can be deprived by anyone from serving the country.
Allah, the Almighty says in chapter Al-Hujarat
إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌ
“The noblest of you in Allah’s Sight, is the most God-fearing of you. Allah is Wise and All-knowing”. (Chapter: 49, Verse: 13)
Similarly, the Almighty Allah says in chapter Al-Maeda.
(وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَى وَلا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ)
“Help one another in what is good and pious, not in what is sinful and rancorous. Have fear of Allah, for He is stern in punishment”. (Chapter: 5, Verse: 2)
The Islamic Emirate has an open embrace for all stratum of the country, specifically Afghans who are in the military ranks but unfortunately, are currently at the service of the invaders. We call upon them to come and join us in the pride of achieving independence of the country. We should join our efforts in expelling foreign troops from our land and establishing an Islamic system. This country is the home of all Afghans and we will build our home with our own hands.
We have seen the consequences of the past two invasions. Others only destroy our homes under the name of rehabilitation. We must come around to understand that we can only make plans and implement them in the best manner and interest of our people when the sword of imperialism has seized from hanging above over our heads. And only then can the axle of our politics and economy revolve around protection of our national interests and Islamic values. So let us all first and foremost come together in winning our independence and forming a system based on our sacred beliefs and then must we gird our loins to rebuild our country and bring about prosperity.
