New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “October 7 is Continuation of December 27″

31 years ago, on 27 December, the Red Army of the former Soviet Union invaded the land of the Muslim Afghan people by violating its sanctity. They resorted to committing genocide, torture and oppression against the miserable people of Afghanistan soon after that.  For ten years, they had been carrying out brutalities and atrocities.  But with the help of Allah (SwT) and the sacrifices of 1.5 million  Afghans,  the Red Army was  forced to pull out of Afghanistan. Not only that. Many Muslim and non-Muslim countries which  were chafing under the yoke of communism for many decades, found their independence once more. Thus the empire of atheism broke into smithereens.

Today the former Soviet union is no more thanks to the Jihad of the Afghans, nor traces of the Warsaw military pact exist but despite that, Afghanistan has  been burning in the flames of war, notwithstanding the colossal sacrifices of 1.5 million martyrs of the Afghan people, immigration of 6 million Afghans and many millions becoming disabled, handicapped, with women becoming widows and mothers losing their sons.

This time NATO under the leadership of America have invaded Afghanistan by dent of 150,000 troops. They have unleashed atrocities and brutalities on the Afghans  since 7 October 2001;  have martyred more than 200,000 Afghans; have tortured hundreds of thousands of Afghans in prisons in Afghanistan and other countries.  This spell of brutality has still been continuing.

Yesterday, the former Soviet Union’s Red Army had occupied our country under the tutelage of Warsaw Pact but today the Americans have taken the land of the Afghans as hostage under the arrangement of NATO. Yesterday, the Russians  claimed,  there was a foreign interference in Afghanistan and called the armed opposition as the mischief-makers  but today America calls her invasion of Afghanistan as a war on terror and calls the armed opposition as terrorists. Yesterday,  the Russians had usurped the freedom and our national independence and used to determine the fate of Afghanistan in the corridors of Kremlin but today,  the Americans have left the Russians behind in their brazenness to clasp the fate of Afghanistan in their reprehensible tentacles. The fate of Afghanistan is determined in Washington, London and Bruxel.   Yesterday a flag had been hoisted on the presidential palace in Kabul which was claimed to be the flag of Afghanistan and today another stooge flag is fluttering on the presidential palace. The Russians said,  their presence in Afghanistan had not negated the independence  of Afghanistan.

American and NATO officials claim the presence of 150,000 troops and the current brutalities unleashed by them to be the  signs of their friendship and  sympathy. They do not consider the presence of troops as a foreign force. A few elements who are Afghans by name only, called the Russian forces as being the friends of Afghanistan in an effort to support their presence in the country. Today, some debased elements who are Afghans by name condone the presence of thousands of soldiers of America and NATO. They  are trying  to find a palatable interpretation for the callous military operations, aerial bombardment, detentions and violation of the Afghan values. The invading Americans carve out justifiable pretexts for these atrocities.  But the Russians including the Warsaw Pact along with their tactics and strategies, brutalities, surrogates like Khalq and Parchm failed to afford constantly facing the Mujahid Afghan people but received a historical defeat. Their mastership at world level came to an end. Today, the Americans are following the footsteps of the former Soviet Union and  hovering over the  moribund edge of erosion–their strength played out, their arrogance is on the collapse and  their ambitions of mastership debilitating. They are seeking a way out of the country.

While condemning  both the invaders and their lackeys of the 27 December and showing our deep resentments in this regard, we pay our deep tribute to the sacrifices of the Afghan Mujahid people. We believe October 7 was continuation   of December 27 invasion. The Americans and NATO will face the fate of the former Soviet Union and the world will be saved from their claws of mischief-making and colonialism.

–Black be the faces of the invaders and the puppets of the invasions both of 27 December and 7 October.

 

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “The Condemnation Of The 31st Anniversary Of The Red Army Invasion Of Afghanistan”

The 6th Jaddi  (the Hijri Lunar year) which coincides with 27th December, is the day of the former Soviet Union’s aggression against Afghanistan. Three decades ago, on this day, 700 soldiers of the Red Army dressed in the uniform of the Afghan Army killed Hafizulla Amin, the former communist ruler of Afghanistan at Taj Beg Palace, near the capital Kabul. With this, 80,000 Red Army soldiers entered Afghanistan

through land and air which, at one point, reached 150,000 soldiers. To confront the coward aggression of their northern neighbor–the former Soviet Union– the Afghans chose the path of armed Jihad as per the requirement of their religious obligation and other humane values. The Soviets’ invasion expedited the tempo of the struggle which had already been going on against the communist government, giving it a new impetus.

The Soviet troops remained engaged in a military muscle showdown against the freedom- loving and Islamist people of Afghanistan almost for ten years from December 1979 to February 1989. After passage of a few years; reviewing and revision of new strategies and troops re-enforcement, they were not able to have a tangible achievement. Contrarily, the situation had slipped into a deepening crisis,  following the prolongation of the war and expansion of battles. The decrepit Soviet Union’s economy was not strong enough to fund the aggression. Hence, the last ruler of the former Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbacheve admitted the bitter reality in 1989, saying openly, the crisis of Afghanistan was a bleeding wound for the Soviet Union. He promised to put an end to the invasion.

The struggle against the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan and the Soviets ultimate defeat came to be known epically as the miracle of the century. The Afghans proved once again as saviors of the world from the fangs of another global anaconda. The rulers of the Soviet Union themselves conceded that historically,  the invasion was  their big mistake—ushering in collapse of the empire existing by the name of the Soviet Union;  bringing to and end the rule of the communist empire in central Asia and Eastern Europe ; dissolving the Warsaw pact and  crumbling into pieces the Wall of Berlin . Consequently, the spell of awe and fear from the Soviet Union which had gripped the globe, melted away simultaneously.

After the disintegration of the Red Empire, as a result of the Afghan Jihad, the stage was set for the Western Empire under the leadership of USA to exercise unipolarism and arrogance in the world. Instead of taking a lesson from the shameful end of the invading Soviets, the American arrogant authority, contrarily, turned to colonizing and oppressing miserable people. This gun boat approach on the part of the Americans led to the Americans attacking the miserable people of Afghanistan like the former Soviet Union had done this before; to  commence a bloodbath against the oppressed people and occupy the country itself by dent of  advanced weapons. The Americans did fulfill their wicked designs practically. At the start, like the former Soviet Union, they had thought, that it was easy to swallow and ingest Afghanistan.

The present rulers of the setting puppet regime had encouraged the White House to invade Afghanistan. Thus, they deceived them and used their power for realization of their own whims of power-grabbing. Even now, they are trying to keep the Americans unaware of the ground realities in Afghanistan–encouraging them to unleash further atrocities and brutalities on the common people.

The Global insatiable colonialism as per its trait has deprived the brave people of Afghanistan of their freedom, ironically, under the misleading slogan of democracy. They have packed the prisons of Kandahar, Bagram and other tens of prisons with the innocent Afghans; has brought about an atmosphere of terror and fear throughout the country as a result of night raids against the houses of the common people. They think, the tactic of terrorizing and oppressing people will vouchsafe them victory, or they will subjugate the Afghans through force and coercion. But despite their showdown of their military might during the past decade, neither they have stabilized the country nor did they silence the Jihadic resistance of the Afghans. If God willing, Afghanistan will prove to become a bleeding wound for the invaders once again. The global colonialist power will breathe its last here.

On this 31st anniversary of the former Soviet Union’s invasion, while condemning the invasion of the Soviets, and believing it as an incendiary spark which kept the 3-decade long war of Afghanistan ignited, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, meanwhile, remind the Americans to learn lesson from the shameful fate of the invading Soviets by using sagacity and rationale and immediately pull their invading troops out of Afghanistan.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.

Christmas Special – Recent article from ‘Umar Bakrī Muḥammad: “Christmas: The Path To Hellfire”

NOTE: ‘Umar Bakrī Muḥammad also recently wrote an article on Halloween. Muḥammad was the founder and leader of al-Muhājirūn in Britain prior to it disbanding in 2004. Since then, there have been a variety of al-Muhājirūn successor groups in Britain as well as the United States (e.g. Islam4UK, Savior Sect, al-Ghurabā’, Islamic Thinkers Society, Revolution Muslim, Iẓhārudīn, Muslims against Crusades, and others). Following the 7/7 attack Bakrī Muḥammad moved to Lebanon after living in London for more than 20 years. He is still currently associated with the British jihadist scene through over the internet communication and live speeches online. al-Muhājirūn and its successor groups have been involved or linked to a variety of terrorist attacks or plots. Some of the larger ones include: Mohammed Bilal Suicide Bombing (India) in 2000, Mike’s Bar Bombing, Tel Aviv in 2003, Operation Crevice in 2004, 7/7 and 7/21 in 2005, Operation Praline in 2005, Toronto 18 in 2006, and 9/11 Anniversary Plot in 2009. He was recently arrested and then released from jail this past November in Lebanon.

In the world today many Muslims, especially those residing in Western countries are exposed to the evil celebration, Christmas.  Many take part in the festive celebrations by exchanging cards, gifts, decorating homes, having Christmas turkey dinners & congratulating one another for the coming of season etc. For many the practice is viewed as harmless amusement & pleasure for young & old.

The build up to Christmas is aggressively promoted; businesses deploy every possible tactic to captivate the masses in every spectrum of society, in shopping centres, high streets, television, radio, magazine & newspapers.

Even though Christmas has been taken hostage by Capitalist to increase business revenues, many still practice this corrupt celebration as a remembrance of the birth of Jesus, who is considered as ‘the incarnation of God’  second third of the trinity, hence it is a celebration of the birth of divinity.

Though the date 25th December is taken by Christians as the birth of Jesus, the origins of this date can be linked to the birthday of the Hindu god Khrishna, & the Greek god of light, Mithra.  This evil celebration is from many angles of origin is a deeply rooted practice of Shirk (worshipping along with the Creator [i.e. Allah], a crime which Allah will never forgive.

“Verily, Allâh forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, & whoever sets up partners with Allâh in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin” [4:48]

How can a Muslim possibly approve or participate in such a practice that bases itself on the notion that Allah has an offspring?

Allah (swt) said,

“Such was Jesus, the son of Mary; it is a statement of truth, about which they vainly dispute. It is not befitting to the majesty of God, that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! When He determines a matter, He only says to it, ‘Be’ & it is” [19:34-35]

If the prophet of Allah, Jesus (Isa the son of Maryum, peace be upon him) was to return now, he would never tolerate such accusations being levied against him.  Rather when he was born his first proclamation was clarifying his status as slave & messenger of Allah & nothing more.

He (Jesus) said: ‘Verily! I am a slave of God; He has given me the Scripture & made me a Prophet; “[19:29-30]

The very concept of Christmas contradicts & conflicts with the foundation of Islam, & that is the testimony of faith, “La Ilaha Ila Allah – None has the right to be worshipped but Allah”.  Any person with basic knowledge of Islam could never accept or tolerate such a false accusation against Allah.  Allah is free from having any offspring or being an offspring, for He (swt) said,

“Say: “God is Unique! God, the Source [of everything]. He has not fathered anyone nor was He fathered, & there is nothing comparable to Him!” [112:1-4]

Even though this practice is heavily glamorised & practiced by the majority, it is paramount for every worshipper of Allah to avoid following the masses in this evil celebration, Allah (swt) said,

“If you obey most of those upon the earth, they will lead you away from the way of Allaah.” [6:116]

It is the ruling of Allah & His Messenger, that those who imitate anyone in dress, manner, behaviour, speech or even celebration becomes part of that community, for the messenger of Allah (swt) said,

“Whoever imamates a group of people he is one of them”. [Reported in Abu Dawood]

Every Muslim has a responsibility to protect his family from the misguidance of Christmas, because its observance will lead to hellfire (a punishment which is seventy times hotter than the fires of this world).

“O you who believe! save yourselves & your families a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men & stones..” [66:6]

Know dear Muslim, to offer Christmas cards, attend any Christmas events, to congratulate others (i.e. by saying “Merry Christmas” or “Happy New Year” etc), Decorating the house, purchasing Christmas trees, or having Christmas turkey meals are completely prohibited by Allah.  Protect your Paradise from being taken away from you & your family; protect yourself & your family from Christmas.

New statement from The Caucasus Emirate’s Jāma’at Shari’at

English:

 

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds, peace and blessing be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, companions and all those who follow him until the Judgement Day, and then …

In the course of the special measures carried out by the Mujahideen in order to clarify the circumstances of the battle, it appeared that the location of the Mujahideen was known by some of the villagers, whom were known to be spies. These people, pushed by Satan, conspired to inform the disbelievers.

In mid-March 2009 (precisely on March 22), in a wooded area near the village of Kakashura, in the Temir Khan Shura (russian name: Buynaksk) district of W. Dagestan, 12 Mujahideen of the Kadar Jamaat became Martyrs (Shuhadah) Insha’Allah in a three-day battle.

As a result, an armada of infidels, consisting of more than 3 thousand soldiers (it’s not an exageration, videos documents of the deployment were featured on Russian TV) and dozens of armored vehicles, managed to surround the shelter of the Mujahideen. For their love of kufr, the miserable traitors received some pathetic pieces of worldly goods and praises from their masters among the infidels.
In the unequal battle, the Mujahideen gave a worthy rebuff to the infidels and fought well, as befits the Soldiers of Allah, killing about 30 atheists soldiers and hitting one of their helicopter. 12 soldiers of Allah heroically sacrificed their souls with smiles on their bright faces, for the elevation of the words of Allah in the land of their fathers (ancestors).
The pathetic snitches dragged a camcorder on the battlefield and started to film the bodies of the martyred brethren. In the meantime, they were swearing and kicking the lifeless bodies of brothers with their feet, they slapped them on the cheek and said: “Well done, good dog.”

It seemed that everything was over, and the traitors thought that everything would remain as it was.
But the Mujahideen were investigating all aspects of the case, and Allah has revealed a number of informants, including those who in 1999, took an active part against the Muslims, especially in the events occurring in the villages of Karamakhi and Chabanmakhi*.
So, at night the 15th of Muharram 1432 of the Hijrah of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), i.e. on December 21, 2010, several of the Mujahideen of Kadar Combat Jamaat of the Central Sector of W. Dagestan killed two of these collaborators while they were celebrating on the occasion of the acquisition of new vehicles from the infidels, bought with the money earned with the blood of Muslims.
These were : Djigit* Asadulaev and his friend Ruslan Adilgereev, allegedly ‘hunters’.
Allah gave them a taste of that to which they aspired. The Mujahideen successfully returned to their base, in order to continue the elevation of the words of Allah in this world and the intimidation of the hypocrites and disbelievers.
Anybody who, by words and deeds, will help against Islam and the Muslims, should expect a similar fate.
Again, we give praise to Allah, who assists His soldiers.
Victory or Paradise! Allahu Akbar!

* A reference to the Dagestani villages bombed during the Summer 1999 by the russians because the Shari’a was implemented by their inhabitants. The bombing triggered a rescue operation led by Shamil Bassayev (ra), Khattab, (ra), etc… (The so-called ‘Dagestan Invasion’). It is known that some Dagestanis sided with the russians and formed some militia corps. in order to help the invaders. These events marked the beginning the 2nd Russo-Chechen war, or in others words, the 2nd Jihad of the 20th Century in the Caucasus.

 

* His name means literally ‘Rider’ or something like ‘knight’. In the past, in the  Caucasus a Djigit was a warrior (the word is associated with courage, honor,etc…)
. You can judge how, ironically, his name has nothing to do with what he did and what he was…

Эхо Какашуры. Месть была неизбежна
24.12.10 00:30

Хвала Аллаху Господу миров, мир и благословение Пророку Мухаммаду и его семье и всем тем, кто искренне последовал за ним до Судного Дня.

В середине марта 2009 года в лесном массиве близ села Какашура Буйнакского района вилайата Дагестан, в ходе трехдневного боя стали шахидами иншаАллах 12 муджахидов из Кадарского боевого джамаата.

В ходе специальных мероприятий проведенных муджахидами по выяснению обстоятельств наравного боя стало известо, что о местонахождении муджахидов Кадарского джамаата прознали некоторые из жителей села, известные своей стукаческой сущностью. Эти люди, подталкиваемые сатаной, сговорились сообщить об этом кафирам.

В результате, армаде кафиров в количестве более 3-х тысяч солдат и нескольких десятков бронетехники удалось окружить место дислокации муджахидов. А жалкие предатели получили за свою любовь к куфру жалкий кусочек из мирских благ, и похвальбу со стороны своих хозяев из числа кафиров.

В ходе неравного боя муджахиды дали достойный отпор кафирам и сражались так, как подобает воинам Аллаха, уничтожив около 30 солдат безбожников, подбили один вертолет, а 12 воинов Аллаха героически отдали свои души, с улыбками на светлых лицах, за возвышение слова Аллаха на земле своих отцов.

Жалкие стукачи приволокли на место боя видеокамеры и начали снимать на видео тела, ставших шахидами, братьев. При этом исходя бранью и пиная безжизненные тела братьев ногами, дабы похлопал их “иван” по щеке и сказал: “Молодец, хороший пес.”

Казалось этим все закончилось, и предатели думали что это все так им останется.
Но муджахиды уточняли все моменты данного случая, и по воле Аллаха выявились еще ряд стукачей, среди которых и те, кто в 1999 году принимали активное участие против мусульман, особенно в событиях произошедших в селениях Карамахи и Чабанмахи.

И вот ночью 15 числа месяца мухаррам 1432 года от хиджры Посланника Аллаха с.а.с., то есть 21 декабря 2010 года, несколько муджахидов из Кадарского боевого джамаата Центрального сектора вилайата Дагестан уничтожили двоих из предателей во время их праздничного мероприятия по случаю приобретения очередного автотранспорта от кафиров на деньги заработанные на крови мусульман.

Это были Асадулаев Джигит и его друг Адильгереев Руслан, якобы охотники.

Аллах дал им вкусить от того, к чему они стремились. Муджахиды успешно вернулись на свои базы, чтобы продолжить возвышение слова Аллаха в этом мире и устрашение лицемеров и неверных.

Каждого, кто словом и делом будет помогать против Ислама и мусульман, ждет подобная участь.

Многократно воздаем хвалу Аллаху, Который оказывает помощь своим воинам.

Победа или Рай! Аллаху Акбар!

Кадарский боевой джамаат.
