Q. Someone says that the Taliban have sold their souls to the U.S.A. Since they are now friends, the U.S. is preparing to leave Afghanistan. Is this correct? Please comment
A. The Taliban did not sell their souls. We are not aware of the current position on the ground. According to the latest report, the U.S. is not pulling out of Afghanistan.
Be that as it may. If the Taliban enter into some form of treaty with the U.S.A., it will not follow that they will be selling their souls. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Sahaabah also had entered into treaties with the mushrikeen and the Christians. Political circumstances dictate such peace treaties. The Shariah makes provision for treaties with the enemy.
Today, the Taliban are still the best of all groups despite their weaknesses. The Taliban have been fighting the world’s super powers for 18 years, and they are still upholding their Jihad. We make dua that Allah Ta’ala guides and protects them. May Allah Ta’ala grant them victory.
It should be understood that the Taliban are not the Sahaabah nor are they Auliya. They are, Alhamdulillah, good Muslims. They are not zindeeqs such as the vast majority of Muslims all over the world. Despite their shortcomings, they are still the best. Their beliefs are not corrupt. It is unreasonable and sinful to make gheebat about them, to slander them and to criticize them without justification. Those sitting in the comforts of their homes thousands of miles from the war zone of Afghanistan are in gross error for doling out opinions on the basis of press reports. Just make dua for them. May Allah Ta’ala grant them victory.
