The Many Deaths of Ayman Al-ZawahiriBy Muslim Skeptic Team

On August 1, 2022, Biden claimed that a US drone strike in Kabul, Afghanistan, killed “top al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri,”[1] and that the Taliban condemned the strike.

According to Biden, US intelligence located Zawahiri earlier this year and that he had moved to downtown Kabul to “reunite with members of his immediate family.”

Whenever a fasiq comes with any news, we as Muslims are obliged to verify the news lest we unintentionally spread false rumors and cause more harm than good. Allah says in the Quran:

O believers, if an evildoer brings you any news, verify ˹it˺ so you do not harm people unknowingly, becoming regretful for what you have done. [49:6]

According to antiwar.com the White House on Tuesday said that it has “no DNA confirmation that al-Qaeda’s top leader Ayman al-Zawahiri was killed in a CIA drone strike in Kabul over the weekend,” and said it had confirmed his death by “other” means. According to White House national security spokesman John Kirby, they do not need confirmation:

“We do not have DNA confirmation. We’re not going to get that confirmation. Quite frankly, based on based on multiple sources and methods that we’ve gathered information from, we don’t need it.”[2]

I am sure that they just dumped him in the ocean, you know to keep in line with a “traditional” Muslim burial like they allegedly did Osama Bin Laden. Apparently al-Zawahiri—like some kind of fictional super agent spy—has been able to evade capture all these years; and by the largest intelligence apparatus in the world, with the biggest budget in the history of the world. But now, all of a sudden, they managed to find him in a posh neighborhood in Taliban-controlled Kabul.

But this is not the first time that al-Zawahiri has been claimed dead. Two years ago, on November 14, 2020 it was rumored that he had died of “natural causes”. This was reported by journalist and NYT Best Selling Author Hassan I. Hassan after allegedly corroborating the report with “sources close to Al-Qaeda.”

Also, in 2008, a US media report by CBS alleged that al-Qaeda’s deputy leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, was killed in a missile strike. That is 2008. However, Pakistan’s military denied any knowledge of the alleged death or injury of al-Qaeda’s number two man as reported by the USA network CBS.[3]

So as you can see, this is not the first time that Ayman al-Zawahiri has been claimed dead, and while I do not deny that he most probably is dead, I do reserve my right to question when and how it actually happened, seeing as I have no confidence in hearing the truth from a US President—certainly not one who likes to tell stories about little kids touching his hairy legs in a swimming pool.

When an ‘evildoer’ comes to us with news, especially one representing the interests of a western hegemonic power with overt aspirations of subjugating the lands of the Muslims, we must verify it first in order to keep with our Islamic obligations. Right now, even the CIA admits that they do not have DNA confirmation of his death and seeing as this appears to be a habit by the US when killing high profile terrorists, vis-à-vis Osama Bin Laden, I am not holding my breath that this is something we’re going to get this time either.

Now I’m sure that Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri are dead. But when, where, and under which circumstances, is a completely different matter. And I am most certainly not trusting the US government to honestly tell me the facts and details. It is like what happened in the wake of the alleged Osama bin Laden killing in 2011 where President Obama was asked to produce evidence of his death. I mean, you are telling us you have the most notorious, most wanted mass murderer of the 21st century, and you are not going to produce any footage, video or pictures in order to document to the world that you ‘got him’?

Instead, they chose to go with a story of them dumping the body in the ocean without producing any evidence of his death and then claiming it was done according to Muslim burial rites (because you know, we Muslims toss bodies into the ocean after their janazah prayers). Obama’s response to that critique was something to the effect of:

‘Well, look, you’re not going to see Osama Bin Laden walking around this earth anymore.’

So, yeah, there you have it. We are probably not going to see Osama bin Laden and al-Zawahiri walking around on this earth anymore. And that spells the end of the “War on Terror,” and a new paradigm shift is about to commence.

Why Nobody Cared About al-Zawahiri Being Killed

As an article in The Intercept points out, Gen Z could be forgiven for not knowing or caring who al-Zawahiri was, but it’s pretty odd that no one else seems to know or care either. I mean this is the face of the alleged most terrifying and dangerous terrorist organization to have walked the earth, and all we hear is crickets. The article points to the “sleepy” address by President Joe Biden announcing Zawahiri’s death where he said:

“People around the world no longer need to fear the vicious and determined killer.”

But, as the article points out:

“Very few, though, had been fearing Zawahiri — who had become better known for his conspiracy videos on global politics rather than actual terrorism — for a long time.”

This goes to show that the war on terror rhetoric has been supplanted in the public consciousness over the last couple of years by a new shift in politics and agenda, and that we are moving away from the war on terror, and onto a new war on… Russia? China?

When Muslims Invented Guerrilla Warfare and Launched Decolonization

Muslims have a military history worth taking pride in.

It begins with the Prophet ﷺ himself, and then his Companions (may Allah be pleased with all of them).

A notable battle was that of Firaz in the year 634 (12AH): Khalid Ibn al-Walid (radiyAllahu ‘anhu) was victorious, which in and of itself is unsurprising (as he never lost), but he did so against the combined strength of both the Persian and Byzantine empires which had formed an alliance to fight against the Muslims.

Islam was such a tremendous force that these sworn enemies⁠—who had been warring against each other for literally centuries⁠—had to put their bloody history aside and join together in order to even stand a chance. Yet, despite vastly outnumbering the Muslims, they still suffered a complete and utter defeat.

Other glorious battles and wars followed throughout Muslim history, and one in particular which is somehow still underrated is the battle of Annual. This battle occurred approximately 101 years ago and lasted for a few weeks⁠—from the end of July 1921 up until the beginning of August 1921⁠.

The battle took place between the Spanish army and the Riffian tribes of Morocco which were under the command of ‘Abd al-Karim al-Khattabi, who in August 1925 appeared on the cover of TIME magazine for his victory.

In sha’ Allah we’ll be taking a look at why this battle was so crucial and why it remains relevant even today.

Western Humiliation

The 1904-1905 Russo-Japanese War, which concluded in a Japanese victory, is often seen as a determining moment because it was the first time during the modern period that “non-Whites” had defeated a “White” power. And this too, at the height of European colonialism, when “Whites” seemed to be apparently undefeatable.

The Japanese victory had an effect on the Muslim world too (especially in the Ottoman Empire⁠—a long-standing enemy of Russia). It invoked aspirations. The fact that an “Eastern power” had defeated a “Western” one gave rise to renewed optimism among Muslims. For instance, Zafar Ali Khan, a scholar who represented Muslim nationalism within the Indian subcontinent, had decided to write a play about it.

Yet despite Japan not technically being a “Western power,” it had still been modernized since the Meiji Era, and thus somewhat crypto-Western. Thus the war between Russia and Japan became the war between two countries trying to modernize rather than a war between a Western and Eastern nation. In order words, it was about trying to ape the West.

This is why the 1921 battle of Annual is a better example of an East versus West conflict. In this case, it was a conflict between Spain, which was a European power, and the Riffian tribes of Morocco, which were seen as being “barbarian Muslims.”

The Riffians are a Berber ethnic group with a patriarchal population living in the mountains. From a Western perspective they were more “archaic” than the Japanese since the Japanese had been on a modernization drive for a long time.

The battle itself was the result of a long process of colonial encroachment by Spain. The Riffian tribes, finally having had enough, decided to revolt.

This article provides some perspective regarding what Spain still considers to be “the disaster of Annual”:

The Battle of Annual, which began on July 21, was an unmitigated disaster – a mixture of ineptitude and vainglorious overreach. “A classic example of military incompetence,” wrote historian Antony Beevor.

The Rifs under Muhammad Abdel Krim al-Khattabi, more commonly known as Abdel Krim and once a civil servant with the colonial regime, routed the invaders.

The Spanish were more than 100km from their coastal base in Melilla with no supply lines or communications, but Silvestre was pugnacious and eager to please the king.

He also went against the orders of his commanding officer and warnings of retribution from Abdel Krim. The upper estimate is that Spain lost 22,000 troops at Annual and in subsequent fighting as they retreated to Melilla, most of the casualties barely literate, ill-trained and ill-equipped conscripts ridden with typhus or malaria. Exhausted and with morale extinguished, their retreat descended into chaos.

By comparison, only around 800 Rif guerrillas were reported dead. Disgraced, Silvestre almost certainly killed himself, although his remains were never found.

So despite being outnumbered, and with Spain having utilized drastic methods, the Riffians had lost far fewer men than the Spaniards. ‘Abd al-Karim would of course lose years later, with the French coming to the aid of the Spaniards, but this is something which reminds us of the Muslim victories of old.

The article then goes on to show how this humiliating defeat influenced much of Spain’s 20th-century politics, including the dictatorship of Franco.

The Father of Modern Guerrilla Warfare and Decolonization

As mentioned earlier, this battle was a symbolic one. This is because even if it wasn’t the first time “non-Whites” had triumphed over “Whites” during modern times (Russo-Japanese War), it was still the first time that a “modern” European colonial power was defeated by “barbaric” “pre-modern” people.

And this would go on to influence all the later decolonization movements to come, not only in the Muslim world but also far beyond that.

Abd al-Karim’s guerrilla tactics in particular will remain a long-lasting legacy of his.

In a 2015 article titled “Abd-el-Krim al-Khattabi: The Unknown Mentor of Che Guevara,” we read (p. 6):

Scholarly studies on Abd-el-Krim and the Rif War frequently characterize Abd-el-Krim as co-inventor of modern guerilla tactics.

Some of the tactics and methods that are mentioned in the literature with great amazement are as follows: the use of trenches (e.g., on May 3, 1925 General Colombat was unable to break through the Berber trenches encircling Bibane, despite six hours of fighting); caves dug in the slopes; extensive use of granite ramparts, rocks, boulder-strewn summits in the hills as concealment=cover from which to target the enemy; the use of smokeless-powder rifles that made it impossible to locate its user; hiding cannons in caves and using these exclusively at night, which made their discovery impossible.

Worldwide research on the Rif War is unanimous that the war tactics of the Rifis were emulated during other rebellions such as the Druze War of Syria with France (1925–1927), the Algerian War of Independence with France (1954–1962) and the Vietnam War with the United States (1946–1954). Twentieth-century Anti-Colonial revolutionary leaders—such as the Vietnamese leaders Hoˆ Chi Minh (1890–1969) and Vo Nguyen Giap (1911–2013), the Yugoslav leader Tito (1892–1980), and Che Guevera—are specifically mentioned as being influenced by the military tactics of Abd-el-Krim. In this regard, Seymour says, ‘‘a great Muslim anti-imperialist fighter (whose successful tactics would inspire Ho Chi Minh and Che Guevara).’’ It has also been alleged that Abd-el-Krim had become an established key figure in the field of politico-military advice for revolutionary leaders during his time in exile in Egypt. Sneevliet, for instance, mentions that, ‘‘Revolutionary leaders of the world always paid him a visit when they came to Egypt.’

So it becomes clear that ‘Abd al-Karim can be considered the spiritual father of decolonization for the following reasons:

  • For being a “pre-modern” force having defeated a “modern” military power, and thus inspiring hope within others; and also
  • Because of the actual tactics employed by them, ultimately giving rise to the very same modern guerilla warfare which would be used during decolonial battles.

It’s also worth noting that Richard A. Gabriel (one of Canada’s most influential military historians) says that the real “father” of guerrilla warfare is none other than the Prophet ﷺ himself, but this could be the subject of another article.

Anyway, it is quite fitting that the decolonial movement was actually launched by a Muslim, since Islam alone can liberate man and societies from all forms of slavery and ensure that submission is to Allah alone.

But what is truly unfortunate is that neither the battle of Annual nor ‘Abd al-Karim are given the place they deserve within public discourse (unlike Che Guevara or Ho Chi Minh for example, who were both directly inspired by him), even among Muslims.

THE ‘MULLAHS’ – ISLAM’S SHIELD FOR THE FLAK

24 Jamaadil Awwal 1432 – 29 May 2011

THE ‘MULLAHS’ – ISLAM’S SHIELD FOR THE FLAK

Recounting some acts of brutality and torture inflicted on helpless Muslim prisoners by America and its protégés in their black torture facilities, one of the episodes circulated by a brother, states:

“Another sister of Islam who was a victim of the Crusade war in Afghanistan, Sister Abidah was imprisoned in Bagram Prison located in Afghanistan. She accompanied over 500 men. The American soldiers would parade naked in front of her…………. The only people to help sister Abidah were not Muslims like you and I, they were not from the so-called Muslim organizations, they were not so-called Imams or Mullahs that only come out to condemn the Muslims……”

It is not our intention to speak in defence of ‘you and I’ nor the ‘Muslim organizations’. However, the ‘Mullahs’ to whom the brother has directed his insinuation, must be vindicated. Generally, those who have an aversion for Islamic orthodoxy, i.e. the strict Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), due to their hypocrisy lack the courage to directly inveigle Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Thus the Ulama (Mullahs) have become an easy target for the disgorgement of insult and vilification by the enemies of the Sunnah.

The Mullahs on the other hand proudly take the flak which is intended for Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Shariah. After all, the Mullahs are the Shields with whom Allah Ta’ala protects His Deen in this dunya. It is precisely for this reason that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “The Ulama (Mullahs) are the Heirs of the Ambiya.”

An intelligent, unbiased observer viewing the global scenario will not fail to discern that in this era, no one other than the Mullahs are upholding the Standard of Jihad. About this Jihad which only the Mullahs are today fighting, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Jihad will continue until the Day of Qiyaamah.”

Who is it today that has taken on the combined military might of the world – of the western superpowers and their myriad of puppets? Who is today fighting the Jihad against the U.S.A. and its coalition of aggressors? Is it not the Taliban? Who are the Taliban? Much to the chagrin of the hypocrites who detest the orthodoxy of Islam, the Taliban are none other than MULLAHS. They are primarily ‘illiterate’ Mullahs who are holding aloft the banner of Islam in countless Jihad operations which have bogged down the world of the kuffaar in a quagmire which has become the Hell-Hole of the U.S. and its coalition of cowards.

These brave Mullahs are fighting the superpowers with all their sophisticated military might despite the great paucity of weaponry in the ranks of these Mullahs whom the enemies of the Sunnah disdain..

The entire world of the kuffaar has united to eliminate these brave and noble Mullahs who are sowing havoc with their Swords of Imaan in the ranks of the filthy, stinking, cowardly ranks of the U.S. and its forces. The entire world – the U.S.A., all western powers and their enlisted mercenary protégés (the governments of all Muslim countries), have formed the Devil’s Coalition, to destroy not only the Mullahs, but their Deeni institutions (the Madaaris) as well.

The U.S.A. is pumping billions of dollars into Pakistan to counter the Madaaris of these Mullahs. It is these Mullahs who are operating the Madaaris and most of the Mujahideen are the students of these Mullahs. Thus, the Jihad in Afghanistan is a Jihad by the Mullahs. Tremendous pressure is placed on the Madaaris in Pakistan and elsewhere in the effort and conspiracy to cut off the recruit-supply of the Mullahs who are the Men of Islam – the only ones in the world who are standing up and fighting the brutal invaders, comparatively speaking, with almost their bare hands.

The Mujahideen are not the products of secular universities, nor of modernist organizations and institutions. They are the products of the institutions of the Mullahs. America’s so-called ‘war on terror’ is directed almost 100% against the Mullahs and their Madaaris. Numerous Madaaris were struck and destroyed with cowardly drone attacks on the basis of the belief that these Madaaris are the quarters of refuge and headquarters of the Taliban Mullahs who are proudly carrying aloft the Standard of Jihad against the combined enemy forces of the world of kuffaar. Giving the assurance of ultimate victory to the Mullahs, the Qur’aan Majeed says:

“They with their coalition cannot fight you (O Mullahs! except from within barricaded fortifications or from behind walls (of barracks).”

Alhamdulillah thumma Alhamdulillah! The Mullahs in Afghanistan are currently riding on the crest of the wave of Jihad. Just the other day, they simultaneously hit. 19 bases of the coalition of kuffaar. A couple of days later, they overran an entire district in Nuristan. Daily, the acts of Jihad of the Mullahs are on the increase while the enemy has cowardly withdrawn into barricaded fortifications. They venture out only with their murderous air force to pulverize villages of women and children from the safety of the air. The Mullahs have taken the Jihad to the cities.

In the current phase of the Jihad, the fighting is hardly in the mountains and in the wilderness. The cowards of the U.S.A. and its coalition forces refuse to come out and fight the Mullahs. They remain slinking in their barracks and send out planes to pummel villages and the folk of these villages.

The brother who has directed his baseless criticism at the Mullahs, should understand that primarily only the Mullahs and their institutions are being targeted by the Kuffaar world. Anything related to the Mullahs is also targeted for attack by the U.S.A. and its kuffaar and munaafiq protégés. Even the Makaatib (small hut-like classes) in which little children learn to recite the Qur’aan Shareef, are being harrassed by the agents of the U.S.A. These agents are the governments in the Muslim lands. A variety of schemes is designed from time to time to obstruct the smooth operation of the Makaatib which cater for millions of Muslim children.

The kuffaar superpowers so much dread the Mullahs, that everything related to Mullahism (i.e. to fundamentalist Islam – to the Sunnah) is viewed with suspicion and targeted for attack. Thus, the beard, the Sunnah attire, the hut in which the Qur’aan is taught, the Miswaak, the burqah, and just every little paraphernalia associated with the Mullahs have all become IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices).

These Mullahs of Jihad whom the cowardly modernists in our ranks revile are the Men who move in a wonderous Shade – the Shade of Holy Jihad about which Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

“Jannat lies in the Shadow of Swords.”

Which Swords? Who can deny that these Swords mentioned by our beloved Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) are today wielded only by the illiterate Mullahs of Afghanistan, the Taliban. Stand up in ovation and go down to kiss their feet, if you consider yourself to be a member of the Ummah of Muhammadur Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

Let it not be forgotten that it was primarily the Mullahs who drove the communists Soviets from Afghanistan. It were the Mullahs who drove the modernist, pro-Indiia Rabbaani regime from Afghanistan. It was the Taliban Mullah regime which the U.S.A. with its coalition of world forces dislodged from Kabul – from only Kabul, not from Afghanistan. The Jihad of the Mullahs continues there. The Mullahs are perpetuating the Jihad in Afghanistan against stupendous odds. Even the enemy has no option but to admire this rag-tag army of Mullahs who are standing proudly with the Sword of Jihad in their hands.

This degenerate Ummah with its preponderance of rubbish modernists, munaafiqs, zindeeqs and shayaateen in human form, has been given some honour by that small band of rag-tag Mullahs who are knocking the hell out of the U.S.A. and NATO cowards. With Sajdahs and Swords, they are bringing honour to the down-trodden Ummah groping in abject humiliation. Yet we have some ‘brothers’ who have the audacity to baselessly target these valiant sons of Islam, the Taliban Mullahs, with the rot they disgorge from their filthy mouths and hearts of hypocrisy.

Allah Ta’ala operates in wonderful and mysterious ways. He has demonstrated to the world of kuffaar and to the hypocrite-zindeeq world known as the World of Islam of this era, that only the Mullahs are holding aloft the Flag of Islam. Only the Mullahs have unsheathed the Sword of Jihad. Only the Mullahs have stopped the superpowers of the world. Only the Mullahs come within the purview of the Qur’aanic aayat:

“Many were the small groups (the rag-tag armies) who vanquished large

armies (such as the armies of the coalition of the U.S.A. and NATO) with

the permission of Allah..”

And, do not for a moment forget that all the Sahaabah were Mullahs who propagated the very same orthodoxy to which the Mullahs adhere today, albeit in a watered down form. About these Mullahs who are despised by modernist ‘Muslims’, the Qur’aan Majeed declares:

“And if We grant them political sovereignty on earth, they establish Salaat,

give Zakaat, command righteousness and prohibit evil.”

Salaat, Zakaat, Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar – these are the occupations of only the Mullahs. Today this Ummah has no asset other than the Mullahs and their institutions, for only they are meeting the brutal enemy head-on.

With all their short-comings, the Mullahs today are still the best of the Ummah. They do no deserve unjustified criticism by Muslims. They deserve our heartfelt supplications. Muslims have the bounden obligation to make sincere and fervent dua for these Mullahs who are so effectively swinging their Swords of Jihad. Only these Mullahs have bestowed some honour to us fallen Muslims. The only glimmer of hope for this Ummah are the Mullahs. The U.S. enemy is targeting the Mullahs, and so are the stupid or hypocritical ‘Muslims’ targeting the Mullahs on whom to spit out their venom of hate for the Deen.

And, we beg your pardon, O Zindeeq! The Mullahs don’t come out to condemn Muslims. They condemn zindeeqs and mulhids who masquerade as Muslims. The Mullahs have come out wielding the Swords of Jihad against the combined might of the kuffaar world who has been joined by all the kuffaar governments holding sway in the Muslim lands. Thus, the entire world is aligned against a small band of impoverished Mullahs.

The Mullahs in Afghanistan have resolutely confronted the brutal kuffaar invaders for more than ten years, and they (the Mullahs) have not slackened their resolve to fight the savages despite their pitiful mundane state in terms of weaponry and other material resources. It is with the Qur’aan in the one hand, and the Sword of Jihad in the other hand that these illiterate Mullahs have successfully opposed the evil enemy with all his superpower might. How dare any Muslim wag a vicious tongue of venom against these noble and valiant Mullahs?

In his synopsis of brutal episodes perpetrated against abducted Muslims, the brother also refers to the abduction of the Pakistani national, Khalid Rashid. Referring to this episode, the brother says:

“The Department of Home Affairs, which appears to have been asked by the police crime intelligence division to provide legal cover for Rashid’s arrest and handover to Pakistani authorities, has been left exposed to charges that it connived with the South African Police Service and foreign intelligence agencies in the “extraordinary rendition” of a suspect in the war against terror.”

It appears that this brother is blissfully ignorant or is feigning ignorance regarding the process which by the grace of Allah Ta’ala ultimately secured the release of Khalid Rashid from one of America’s torture facilities in Pakistan. Mullahs here in South Africa had initiated the process and had seen the process to its successful end. It were not modernists. It were only Mullahs. Whilst all other Muslims in the country had abandoned Khalid Rashid, a group of Mullahs had taken up the challenge and by Allah’s fadhl succeeded to gain Khalid Rashid’s release.

The following episode of Mullah Hadhrat Ali Ibn Abi Talib (radhiyallahu anhu) adequately reflects the attitude of the Mullahs who are brandishing the Sword of Jihad and holding aloft the Banner of Islam in Afghanistan. Once in the midst of a severe battle, Mullah Hadhrat Ali (radhiyallahu anhu), overcome with tiredness and drowsiness fell asleep on his horse while spears and arrows were flying from all sides. The agitated horse, with the drowsy Mullah (radhiyallahu anhu) was wandering aimlessly in the battle field. A companion seeing the sleeping Mullah (radhiyallahu anhu) screamed to wake him up. Mullah Ali (radhiyallahu anhu) opened his eyes and with extreme calm said non-chalantly:

“From which two days of Maut can I flee?

The day that Maut has been decreed

Or the day it has not been decreed?

The day Maut has not been decreed

It will not arrive

The day it has been decreed, no amount

Of defence will avail.

The sword and the dagger are our flowers

Confound the narcissus and the myrtle

Our wine is the blood of our enemies

Our cups are the hollow of the skulls

.

Brother salute the Mullahs who are holding aloft the banner of Jihad, and repent for your hypocrisy and for the hatred you harbour for the Mullahs of Jihad.

TALIBAN-AHL-E-BUGHAAT

TALIBAN ARE NO LONGER ‘THE TALIBAN’- TREACHERY AND BETRAYAL

AHL-E-BHUGHAAT are  traitors and rebels who violate their Pledge of Allegiance – the Pledge  with Allah Azza Wa Jal to uphold His Law –the Shariah  and to obey His Commands.  In the Qur’aan Majeed, Allah Azza Wa Jal states:

“And when We grant them control (political power) on earth, they establish (the Institutions) of Salaat and Zakaat, and they command  virtue and prohibit vice (i.e. they fully discharge the Obligations of Amr Bil Ma’roof, Nahy Anil Munkar).”

In  a series  of  acts of  High Treason in glaring violation of their Pledge of Allegiance with Allah Ta’ala, the Taliban have humiliatingly adopted the culture of bootlicking the kuffaar  for money, food and recognition. Despite the Battlefiled victories  granted to them by Allah Azza Wa Jal, the Taliban have capitulated  and are today  disgracefully licking the boots of not only the western kuffaar, but also of the eastern kuffaar.

At the very juncture of Victory when the U.S. with its coalition were forced to flee from Afghanistan, the Taliban became the victim of  mental colonization. They went to great lengths and  are  incrementally doing so today to gain recognition and China and now the cow-worshippers of India.

The  most recent bootlicking of kuffaar  is the Taliban’s disgraceful  cap-in-hand performance, begging the  drinkers of cow urine and the consumers of cow manure, the Hindu Mushrikeen of India. They disgracefully and gleefully accepted  the crumbs donated by India. The  bag of crumbs consists of  20,000 tons of wheat, 13 tons of medicine, 500,000 doses of Shaitaan’s Urine (covid vaccines) and some winter clothing. In return for these impure crumbs of the Indian Mushrikeen, the Taliban are now compelled to grant  the Hindu murderers of Muslims a firm footing in Afghanistan.

While the declared policy of Hindu India is the forcible conversion of Muslims to Hinduism and the  conversion of all the Musaajid into temples, while Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and Islam are publicly maligned and reviled by Indian politicians and while Muslims are being lynched in public and  harassed, these miserable, most unfortunate Taliban who have betrayed  Allah Ta’ala, are bootlicking the Cow-Worshippers. The Taliban have not  spoken a word in favour of Muslims of India who are being brutalized by the Hindu cow-worshipping mobs.

While Muslims in China are being subjected to horrendous repression, while Salaat and Saum are banned, and while a Chinese Muslim has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for  keeping a beard, the  treacherous Taliban  are bootlicking the godless Chinese atheists who are the worst devourers of pork. Russia, Iran and China had remained enemies of the Talban through the long 20 year war  with America. Today the Taliban are licking the boots of these enemies.

The Taliban have betrayed Allah Ta’ala, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), the Ummah and Islam. It took almost a century  for the kufr metamorphosis of the Saudi regime and population.  A century after  Britain established the Saudi regime, the present Saudi KUFR regime has  come to power. But  the process of  kufr metamorphosis of the Taliban was initiated  even prior to them taking control of the country’s governance. It will now  not take a century  for the Taliban to put the Saudi MBS in the background in so far as Kufr is concerned. They will soon outclass MBS in the culture of Bootlicking and Kufr.

Muslims of Deeni hue all over the world had cherished great hopes in the Taliban. The  expectation was  the blossoming of a true Shariah State in the wake of Taliban victory. But the opposite  has happened.  There is no greater treachery than the treachery perpetrated by the Taliban. There Shariah slogans  were deceptive  and designed to hoodwink Muslims. Now after Allah Ta’ala has installed them in power, they are flaunting their true  colours of shaitaaniyat.

       The little Deeni reforms they have flabbily introduced are mere cosmetic to beguile Deeni concerned Muslims. They will suffer the consequences of their treachery and bootlicking.

FROM AL-HAQ 65

THE TALIBAN HAVE BETRAYED ALLAH TA’ALA

The Taliban had always  sent out the message  of Islam – that their objective was to establish the Shariah and to convert Afghanistan into a genuine Islamic or Shar’i state in  full accord with the Sunnah. For more than  twenty years had they  battled and struggled against the kuffaar  superpowers of the world. Allah Ta’ala granted them a resounding victory over His enemies, the enemies of Islam and the Ummah.

However, those who are awake  and aware of the realities of international politics  had not failed to understand that the Taliban’s constant presence in Qatar during their two-decade Jihad was disconcerting. Their presence in Qatar was at the behest of the Pakistani Intelligence Services and subject to a measure of bootlicking – bootlicking the Americans. Since the U.S.A. saw no need for negotiations in Afghanistan, there was absolutely no need for the Taliban to have grovelled in bootlicking style, running to Qatar discordantly in the hope of forging peace with the enemy.

While peace with the enemy is not  prohibited in Islam, most certainly, bootlicking is. The Taliban were riding on the crest of a wave. There was no need for them to crawl and be dictated to by the U.S.A. Their ‘Islamic’ rhetoric cannot be reconciled  with the stark reality of the un-Islamic implementations now that they constitute the government in Afghanistan. They are bending  backwards excessively to accommodate the haraam demands of the West and of the Murtad modernist Afghani people.

Russia, Iran and China were always the implacable enemies of the Taliban. Never had these countries offered  the slightest aid to the Taliban  during the 20 year Jihad.  In fact, Iran had not permitted the Taliban to   even take  temporary refuge on Iranian soil. But what  do we see now that the Taliban constitute the government?  These kufr, anti-Islam, satanic powers have become  the close ‘allies’ of the Taliban.

The Taliban, in bootlicking style, went to Russia and China to assure them that the   Mujaahideen hailing from China and other Muslim lands under Russian domination  would not  be tolerated  and  provided haven in Afghanistan. What was the imperative need for the Taliban to have journeyed to the lands of the atheists to make such haraam promises? This bootlicking the Chinese and Russians was a cruel and disgusting act of treachery. They who had all along claimed to be upholders of the Shariah and that their Jihad was for Islam, had sold their brethren  for monetary and worldly gain.

Similarly, the Taliban are  going to great lengths to appease and soothe the West regarding Islam’s prohibitions pertaining  to females. They are making haraam concession on haraam concession in this sphere.

It is now clear that the Taliban’s objective is not the establishment of the Shariah nor the Pleasure of Allah Ta’ala. The Maqaasid  of the Aakhirah have no share in current Taliban governance. The Taliban government is not an Islamic government. The shadow of the West  and of the atheists is constantly overhanging the Taliban. While Allah Ta’ala had granted them battlefield victories  and inflicted defeat on the world’s superpowers, the Taliban are miserably failing to capitalize on their Victory. They are now completely oblivious  of the Promises of Allah Ta’ala:

“If you help (the Deen of) Allah, He will aid you and plant your feet firmly (against your enemy). And, if He  abandons you, then who is there besides Allah to aid you?” (Qur’aan)

“Allah is Maalikul Mulk. He grants sovereignty to whomever He wishes and He snatches away mulk (land/power/country) from whomever He wills.

He grants  honour to whomever He wills, and He disgraces whomever He wills. All goodness is in His power.”

By their conduct the Taliban  have implied lack of belief in these Qur’aanic precepts, warnings and promises. The hopes  which true Muslims had cherished regarding the Taliban are all dashed and neutralized. All such hopes were distant pipedreams. The decline of the Taliban – moral decline, spiritual decline and even worldly decline – is incremental with the march of time. There will be no surprise if Afghanistan follows in the  footsteps of  the Saudis who had also ostensibly come to power on an Islamic ticket although they were ushered to the fore and granted a country to rule by their British masters. At one stage the Americans had promised to lay a ‘carpet of gold’ in Afghanistan  in lieu of Taliban bootlicking them. It appears that the Taliban are  following in the footsteps of the Saudis. This is not farfetched  reasoning.

Warning the Taliban and their ilk against befriending the kuffaar enemies of Allah Ta’ala, the Qur’aan Majeed states: “The Mu’minoon should not take as friends the kaafireen besides the Mu’mineen…” Only the Mu’mineen may be taken as friends, not the Russian atheist mass murderers of entire Muslim communities, nor may the Chinese pork-devourers  be taken as friends. They have exterminated millions of Muslims and are still in the process of brutally oppressing Chinese Muslims.

Warning the Taliban from bootlicking the West and kow-towing to their demands of female ‘liberation’ and libertinism, the Qur’aan Majeed says: “What! Do you search for the law of Jaahiliyyah?  Whose Law is  best for a nation having yaqeen? O People of Imaan! Do not take the Yahood and Nasaaraa as friends. They are mutual friends (one  to the other). Whoever from you (Muslimeen) befriends them,  then (know) that verily he is of them. Verily, Allah does not guide a nation of zaalimeen.”

The current Taliban establishment comes fully within the scope of the following Qur’aanic Aayat: “You will see those in whose hearts lurks a disease racing among them (i.e. bootlicking them), saying (to justify their bootlicking): ‘We fear calamity  may befall us (from the kuffaar’s coalition, Nato and the like).”

There are many Qur’aanic Aayaat and Ahaadith severely castigating the type of ‘friendship’ the Taliban have struck up with the Russian and Chinese atheists, and with the  western Yahood and Nasaara. If they continue along this path of treachery, Allah Ta’ala will hand them over to the kuffaar.

IS JIHAD FARDH AYN FOR ALL MUSLIMS?

Question: Recently I read a book that was explaining the jihad in Shaam. Isis was denounced. However one part of the book had quoted the different mazaahib stating that if a Muslim land is under attack or if the Muslim mothers of the Ummah are being abused as is done today then the obligation to defend them goes to those closest and if they do not do so or are lacking then it moves outward until the entire world of Muslims are obligated.

The book was attempting to prove by use of this text that Jihad today is Fardh Ayn on the entire Ummah.

Answer: The morons are not aware of even the meaning of Fardh Ayn. Salaat for example is Fardh Ayn. That means Salaat is obligatory on every baaligh Muslim male and female. Now consider the plight of Muslims in Syria. If Jihad in the prevailing Syrian context had to be Fardh Ayn, it will mean that the 2 billion Muslim men and women of the world have to converge on to Syria to fight. Is this possible?

Even those morons who propagate the Fardh Ayn idea slip out of their countries surreptitiously with considerable difficulty. Just a handful of miserable souls misguided by corrupt morons who have no understanding of Jihad, manage to reach Syria. After reaching Syria, their primary target are other Muslims, not the kuffaar Syrian regime, nor Israel, nor the Americans. To their discredit, these fake ‘mujaahideen’ maim, torture, and kill  their own kind.

They engage in hit and run lack-lustre skirmishes with some Shiahs and sometimes with the  men of the Bashr Assad devil. But their primary target are Muslims who are not members of their specific jihad outfit. It is the same story with these ‘jihadi’ outfits in Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, and currently their mutual rivalry and killing are most prominent in Syria.

If Jihad is currently Fardh Ayn on all the Muslims of the world, it will follow that the 2 million Muslims of South Africa are obligated by the Shariah to go to Syria. How will stupid brains  solve the logistics of  this movement of 2 million Muslim men and women from South Africa to Syria? Who will arm and train these two million? Assuming that by some  sort of  stupid hallucination it could be imagined that two million Muslim men and women succeed in making their way to Syria, who will save them from becoming fodder for the guns of the enemy? The two million from South Africa will be untrained and unarmed morons who have been duped by  donkeys posing as Mujaahid leaders. Who will prevent them from committing suicide in Syria?

In brief, those who say that Jihad today in Syria or elsewhere is Fardh Ayn on all the  Muslims of the world, are talking absolute rubbish urinated into their  brains by shaitaan.

Yes, if an Islamic country is attacked by the kuffaar and the army of the victim Muslim country is defeated or unable to defeat the kuffaar army, then it devolves as an obligatory duty for the closest Muslim country  to go to the aid of its brethren.

So, these morons should preach their Fardh Ayn concept to the murtad governments and spineless Muslim armies who are in control of Muslim lands. The obligation does not descend on  ordinary civilians who are unarmed, untrained and  for whom it is logistically impossible  to go to the aid of the fleeing hundreds of thousands of Syrians (for example) who have shirked the obligation of fighting the enemy in their own land.

Undoubtedly, Jihad is Fard Ayn on the Syrian populace. But they have selected to flee. The vast majority of those who have fled are practically, in fact even  in belief, not Muslims. Most are murtaddeen. So what we are witnessing today is the Athaab of Allah Ta’ala. Furthermore, there is no regime in any Muslim country today which believes in Jihad or even in Islam. All of them are Murtaddeen.

How the UK Special Forces Hid Their War Crimes in Afghanistan

In a new investigative report, the BBC alleges that the UK’s Special Air Force (SAS) squadron may have committed what amounts to war crimes in Afghanistan and that they also attempted to cover them up.

The report focuses on SAS raids which were “deliberate detention operations” (or DDO) which targeted Taliban bomb-making operations and the detaining of Taliban commanders. The BBC alleges though that operations were often rushed once they had a list of potential individuals—people who may have in actuality been just ordinary civilians. They allege that 54 people were killed during a six-month SAS tour.

A large portion of the report is based on a cache of internal emails from within the SAS—emails in which the UK Special Forces discussed deadly raids from 2010/2011 which they found to be “suspicious.”

RELATED: The Inhumanity of the US Army Laid Bare

Then, more leaked documents provided further information, as did corroboration of information they had on the raids with local news reports and a leaked US military log.

Here is an example of the type of raids in question:

“In the early hours of 7 February 2011, Habibullah’s sons, Samiullah and Nisar Ahmad, had been sleeping in a single-room guesthouse in the grounds of the family home. Alongside them were seven mourners who had come to the village for a funeral.

Then four helicopters carrying SAS personnel landed in the nearby fields – and soon, all nine people in the guesthouse were dead.

According to the official SAS account of the incident, they had believed the property was linked to a Taliban leader. As the troops entered the compound, the SAS said, several insurgents opened fire – so the SAS then shot back, killing those in the guesthouse. The report adds that three AK-47 rifles were recovered in the raid.

But that wasn’t how Habibullah remembered it. All those who died had been unarmed civilians, he said, unconnected to the Taliban.

He took the BBC team to the guesthouse. It had been bricked up – the memory of his sons’ deaths had made it too painful to use again. ‘When I remember them it hurts me so much,’ Habibullah said.”

In investigating the raids further (in the case above: locations of bullet holes; Habibullah’s account of where victims were shot; discovering similar findings from others who’d investigated the matter), the BBC suggests that many of these raids appeared to be more like executions.

Habibullah insisted that those killed in his home were not armed. Reports note three guns recovered from the scene. The BBC suggests that these were likely “drop weapons”—weapons placed at the scene by the SAS to make it look like the victims were armed. Former SAS squadron soldiers also “confirmed they had witnessed AK-47s being planted in this way.”

These events even raised the eyebrows of some higher-ups in the British Military, who found this pattern extremely concerning:

“When the Royal Military Police launched a murder investigation in 2013 into one of the raids conducted on that tour, General Carleton-Smith did not disclose to the RMP any of the earlier concerns over unlawful killings, or the existence of the tactical review.

Colonel Oliver Lee, who was commander of the Royal Marines in Afghanistan in 2011, told the BBC that the allegations of misconduct raised by our investigation were ‘incredibly shocking’ and merited a public inquiry. The apparent failure by special forces leadership to disclose evidence was ‘completely unacceptable’, he said.”

This story should have an unfortunate familiarity to it. Australian forces had taken part in similar crimes in Afghanistan, in which detainees were killed unlawfully (sometimes in order for soldiers to get their ‘first kill’). Drop weapons were also then placed with the victims.

RELATED: Would You Pray for War Criminals in Afghanistan?

The BBC has documented a number of SAS incidence descriptions wherein they found eerily similar circumstances of death and in which a suspicious pattern came to light:

  • “‘On 29 November 2010, the squadron killed a man who had been detained and taken back inside a building, where he ‘attempted to engage the force with a grenade.’”
  • “On 15 January 2011, the squadron killed a man who had been detained and taken back inside a building, where he ‘reached behind a mattress, pulled out a hand grenade, and attempted to throw it.’”
  • “On 7 February, the squadron killed a detainee who they said had ‘attempted to engage the patrol with a rifle.’ The same justification was given for the fatal shooting of detainees on 9 February and 13 February.”
  • “On 16 February, the squadron killed two detainees after one pulled a grenade ‘from behind the curtains’ and the other ‘picked up an AK-47 from behind a table.’”
  • “On 1 April, the squadron killed two detainees who had been sent back inside a building after one ‘raised an AK-47’ and the other ‘tried to throw a grenade.’”

The BBC also notes: “no injuries to SAS operatives were reported across all raids scrutinized by the BBC.” This also adds weight to the idea that the few weapons found were likely drop weapons.

For now, the British Ministry of Defence objects “strongly…to this subjective reporting.” They maintain that their own investigations did not find ample evidence to prosecute.

Maybe they’re hoping this report will be largely overlooked and forgotten, which is all the more reason that it should be remembered.

May Allah have mercy on all the innocent Muslims who died in those raids. May their reward be great. Amin.

ISLAMIC RULE

A truly Islamic government based on the Shariah and the Sunnah cannot be found in any Muslim country of today. For a successful Islamic government (Khilafate), the essential requisite is a spiritually and morally reformed Islamic ummah. There does not exist any such Islamic ummah anywhere today in the Islamic world. Therefore, even if a pious man or group of Muslims succeed in installing themselves in government, they will not succeed in the endeavour to implement the Shariah because they will be confronted by corrupt Muslim masses who will not allow the Shar’i process to be introduced.
Reformation
It was precisely for the successful implementation of the Shariah that Islamic government was preceded by a thirteen year period of spiritual and moral reformation during the time of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Once the community was Islamically prepared, there was no difficulty in the implementation of the Shariah among the masses.
It was not possible to introduce Islamic Law among masses who are inimical to the Shariah. A people who has become westernized and who has abandoned the Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) will sabotage the deeni efforts of benign Islamic rulers. The rulers will be compelled to enlist the services of the un-islamic masses to maintain the working of the country. If those who man the country’s services have no Islamic inclinations and Islamic character, they will resort to a variety of stratagems and co-operate with the enemies to bring about the fall of the Islamic rulers. Roohani and Islaahi training are, therefore, essential for the success of any Islamic government.
Force
It is not possible to implement the shariah in a corrupt community by force. There will be a need for large scale repression, imprisonment and killings if force has to be used to implement the Shariah among a people who has lost its Islamic character. The sunnah way is, therefore, Taleem. Muslims should be educated and the Sunnah explained to them. As long as Muslims do not adopt the Sunnah voluntarily, there is no hope for the success of any Islamic government.
The view of first capturing the means of power and then enforcing the Shariah in an inimical populace is to put the cart before the horse. There is no hope of success.
Muslims are so alienated from Islam, that they will readily vote for an unislamic party or any irreligious group to rule them rather than submit to Shar’i rule. Under such circumstances, one can only expect the wrath of Allah Ta’ala to descend on the Ummat. This is the lamentable plight of the present day Ummah all over the world. Muslims themselves have an aversion for Islam, hence they so quickly adopt foreign and immoral cultures as their ways of life. There is no wonder that so many hardships & disasters are settling over Muslims on all fronts.
