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?

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.

FROM AL-HAQ NUMBER 65

Why is the world not recognizing the Taliban government?

More than three months have passed since the Taliban took over Kabul, but the world has yet to officially recognize the new government. Even the United States of America that took the lead in inking the Doha peace deal is still weighing the pros and cons of such a possibility.

This situation is lingering on, despite the United Nations warning that Afghanistan is facing a humanitarian crisis of unprecedented proportions and is on the verge of disaster.

So, what are the impediments in recognizing the new reality in Afghanistan, when almost all the stakeholders are in direct contact with the Taliban government?

Broadly, the world can be divided into three major groups on this issue.

The first and the foremost is led by the United States of America. It comprises the European Union, NATO members, most Middle Eastern countries, Japan and India. The second is the regional group that consists of Russia, China, Pakistan, Iran, and a number of Central Asian Countries.

The rest of the world can be categorized into the third group that includes at least six countries from the non-permanent members of the United Nations Security Council.

All these groups have similar views on at least a few points. They have unanimously asked the Taliban to form an inclusive government, ensure the rights of women and minorities and guarantee that Afghanistan will no more serve as the launching pad for global terrorist operations.

But, all is not as black and white. The truth lies somewhere in the grey area. And, these three groups remarkably differ from each other.

Let’s first consider a group led by the United States of America. The Biden administration has not openly demanded who should or shouldn’t be in the inclusive government. But, there are clear signs that Washington wants to see some significant figures of the previous governments be given important portfolios.

Thomas West, the US special envoy for Afghanistan, has recently participated in a two-day talk with the Taliban. These discussions have the potential to make some headways in economic support. But, the United States is in no hurry to recognize the Taliban. Why?

Well, after the September 11 attacks on the United States of America, Washington had declared the Taliban as a terrorist organization. Gradually, they were divided into reconcilable and irreconcilable ones. Hasn’t the time come to include currently banned figures in the reconcilable ones as they have submitted themselves to the Doha Peace Agreement?

Till now, international pressure to take them out of the cabinet hasn’t worked. There are least chances that it will. True, the Taliban have accommodated dozens of Afghans by giving them ceremonial positions. But, it’s an admitted fact that the top hierarchy remains the same.

This stubbornness has raised some eyebrows in Russia, China, and Iran, who also want a truly inclusive government that represents all the main ethnic and political groups. This second group is also keeping mum about naming those who they want to see in the government.

But, each member of this group wants a friendly and independent Afghan government, which diplomatically means less dependent on the group led by the United States of America.

This second group pretends that it is equally not in a hurry to recognize the Taliban. In reality, with every passing day, this group is becoming more concerned about why the world is not coming to terms with the new reality of Afghanistan.

The reason is obvious. Pakistan, Iran, China, Russia, and the Central Asian countries have more stakes in the region. For this reason, they had cultivated ties with the Taliban long before the fall of Kabul.

The increasing presence of Daesh in Afghanistan has given these countries another reason to join hands. After all, this group has long faced one terrorist organization or the other.

Moscow can’t afford another Beslan Siege of 2004 when 32 Chechen terrorists took 1,200 children and adults hostage and killed at least 330 in a primary school.

China equally wants to stop the resurgence in Xinjiang where Uighur militants killed 39 people in a vegetable market in 2014. Any such incident now has the potential to cast a shadow over the security of the One Belt One Road initiative as Xinjiang connects China with eight major countries.

Iran, already facing a biting economic situation, is putting up all efforts to stop elements seeking instability. It’s a country where militants disguised as soldiers killed 25 people in the Ahvaz military parade, during sacred defense week.

Pakistan is the worst-hit country. In a few days, the nation will mourn the Army Public School massacre that had shocked the whole world.

But by recognizing the Taliban, the world can strengthen them to go against Daesh and affiliated groups that seem to have a bigger agenda in the region and beyond. It will also avert total economic collapse and lawlessness that is serving as the breeding ground for extremist ideologies.

As far as the Taliban are concerned, they should also realize that an inclusive government will strengthen not weaken their rule.

THE ‘TALIBAN’ – SINISTER RUMBLINGS – TREACHERY IN THE AIR – THE REAL TALIBAN ARE GONE!

QUESTION

Please comment on the following article which has reached me. Are the claims made regarding the Taliban true? Can the contents be true? I and many others are confused. We do not know what to believe.

The Article

Assalaamualaikum. This article has made it way to me… Can the contents be possibly true?

“They left perfectly operational equipment behind, and it was for a specific purpose connected to the Doha Agreement signed back in 2020. Taliban 2.0 signed several deals with America in their time in Qatar. The biggest agreement signed was that after America pulls out, Taliban will wipe out any Dawlah (IS) and AQ members living in Afghanistan. Stanekzai emphatically stated, “We will not let Daesh be a headache for Russia and America.”

That’s the reason behind America leaving the equipment and weapons. It takes the burden off their shoulders because now instead of them having to fight AQ and IS and have their soldiers get killed, Taliban will do it on their behalf.

To understand exactly the magnitude of what is going on behind the scenes, you have to know the history of not just the original Taliban of 1994, but the Afghan-Soviet Jihaad from long before then, with the invasion of Kabul in 1979. You also have to know each and every one of the key members.

Mullah Umar (rahmatullah alayhi) didn't die of TB as the lie was spread; he was assassinated by Mullah Akhtar Mansoor and Gul Agha, to bring an end to the "original" Taliban and bring in a new version. None other than Mullah Daadullaah (rahmatullah alayhi) himself stated that MullahUmar (rahmatullah alayhi) was assassinated and he didn’t die of TB or kidney failure.

The current de facto leader of Taliban is Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar. The Americans have a nickname for him: “Mullah Bradley”.

Keep that in mind, and then listen to this: back in the late ’90s already, when the original Taliban under Mullah `Umar (rahmatullah alayhi) were at the peak of their power, the CIA issued a threat to them, saying, “If you raise up Mullah Omar, we will raise up Mullah Bradley.”

At the time, everyone thought it was just a play on words, because an M3 Bradley is a tank, so they thought CIA were simply saying we’ll bring in tanks to overrun Afghanistan. After so many years, Baradar becomes the de facto leader, having spread a lie that Hibatullah Akhundzada and the others are “gravely sick with Covid”, and all of a sudden deals are being signed with America, Iran, Russia, China, etc., and it dawned on some people: the CIA back then weren’t referring to a tank; they were referring to their mole within the Taliban: Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, A.K.A. “Mullah Bradley”.

Baradar was arrested in 2010 in Pakistan, and during his imprisonment deals were signed between him and the ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence), and in 2018, none other than Donald Trump himself personally ordered Pakistan to release Baradar, and from there America flew him straight to Qatar, where further discussions were had between Baradar and the CIA in Doha, before Baradar flew from there to Afghanistan, as the “hero”, to “take over”, and “conveniently” America ups and leaves behind mountains of weapons.

There is a famous book called “88 Days to Kandahar”, written by the Head of CIA’s counter-terrorism department: Robert Grenier. In it, he means that the CIA have had contact with Baradar for more than 20 years. There is a lot going on behind the scenes which most people are unaware of.

The CIA did indeed use their “Mullah Bradley” and his crew to get rid of Mullah `Umar (rahmatullah alayhi) and the original Taliban leadership, to replace it with a version led by a man who has been in the pocket of the CIA for over 20 years, and now America will relax while the “Taliban of Mullah Bradley” wages the “war on terror” in Afghanistan on their behalf.

Already, in case people don’t know: in an effort to appease China, Taliban will be rounding up nay Uyghurs living in Afghanistan and sending them back to China. Not only that: in an attempt to appease China, Taliban killed six members of the East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM), a Jihaad group trying to fight the vile, tyrannical Chinese regime. There are approximately 2,000 Uyghurs living in Afghanistan, and Taliban wants to round them up and hand them over to Beijing, to curry favour.

We are living in the era mentioned by Rasoolullaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) in the Hadeeth: “years of deception.” Things aren’t what they appear to be.

(End of article)

ANSWER

Since we lack knowledge of some details mentioned in the article, we shall refrain to comment on such claims. Nevertheless, in general, what has been said is correct.

The current group is not the original Taliban who were headed by Mullah Umar. With each passing day, the haze of deception surrounding the present ‘Taliban’ is clearing. The conspiracy which ushered the present Taliban to the fore, and their ‘blitzkrieg’ ‘victory’, will be better understood in coming days.

We share much of what is mentioned in the article. We are disillusioned after our initial euphoria created by the success of the ‘Taliban’. But it is increasingly coming to light that these ‘Taliban’ are not The Taliban whose goal was the establishment of the Law of Allah Ta’ala in Afghanistan.

“TALIBAN” VALID CONCERNS

A Brother from the UK writes:

There is very likely to be a sinister element to the sudden withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan. The questions that automatically come to mind are why now, and why all of a sudden, and why the suspiciously open drama on this saga in the carefully controlled Kuffaar media?

In regards to the element of the Nusrat of Allah, the Taliban today are, without doubt, far more liberal and modernized than the Mullahs who had defeated the Russians, and (in many ways) even the Taliban from whom Allah Ta’ala had snatched sovereignty via the American barbarians.

I have hardly kept myself abreast of what’s been going on, but the little I have heard is extremely disturbing to say the least. One Molvi could barely contain his excitement as he informed me recently about how much more media savvy (i.e. the art of showboating snouts on Dajjal’s eye) this new Taliban group is, and some of the “positive” assurances they have been giving to the world at large. Much of it is very concerning. In particular, their pathetic attempts at appeasing the kuffaar regarding women’s emancipation, including giving assurances of allowing women to attend universities (albeit “segregated), is nothing short of satanic. Their open and seemingly sincere dalliance with the Chinese Kuffaar savages is a brutal stab in the hearts of millions of oppressed Chinese Muslims. And, there are other examples of statements, worryingly too many, issued by this new group of Taliban, the tone of which makes it difficult for them to be dismissed as merely “hikmah”, such is the apparent sincerity and passion behind these servile and futile attempts at appeasement of a breed who will never be pleased with us.

I hope my sentiments are proven to be wrong, but I am finding it increasingly difficult to dismiss the disconcerting rankling in my heart that the whole scenario of the sudden (and surely strategic) withdrawal of American troops is akin to a sudden drop in the ocean tide which opens the way for the still-distant tidal wave whose dark shadow is beginning to silhouette the horizon.

As I have said before, I have not really kept myself abreast of recent news, almost all of which is carefully prepared by the cabal who currently are at the helm of world affairs, so I might be missing the mark completely.

(End of letter)

All the concerns raised by the Brother are valid. We share these concerns with him. The near future will, Insha-Allah, reveal the reality and expose any treachery which the new brand ‘Taliban’ may be practicing. Insha-Allah, we shall comment in greater detail within coming days.

THE SIGNS OF AR-RAHMAN IN THE JIHAD OF AFGHANISTAN

This book was written by Shaykh Abdullah Azzam during the Afghan-Soviet Jihad in the 1980’s. It deals specifically with first hand accounts of the miracles that occured during this Jihad. Shaykh Abdullah Azzam writes, ‘These incidents which are going to be narrated are, in reality, more extraordinary than one can possibly imagine, and appear to resemble fairytales. I have personally heard them with my own ears; and have written them with my own hands from those Mujaahideen who themselves were present. I have heard these miracles from such men who are trustworthy and reliable, and who have been constantly on the battlefield. The miracles are many, so much so that they more or less reach the degree of Tawaatur i.e. such a large number that does not entertain the possibility of fabrication. I have heard numerous such miraculous episodes, but brevity does not allow me to enumerate all of them.
