New statement from the Amīr of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Mullā Muḥmmad ‘Umar: “Message of Felicitation on the Auspicious Eve of ‘Īd al-Fiṭr”
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
Praise be to Allah, the Sustainer of (all) Creations, (Whose Way is to) help Mujahideen and humiliate the tyrants and arrogants. Peace be on our Master and Prophet, Mohammad, the Leader of the White- faced and footed (persons on the Day of Judgment) and (peace be on) his all descendants and companions.
The Almighty Allah says:” Allah is with those who keep from evil and those who do good.”
Muaaz bin Jabal (may Allah be pleased with him) has reported that the Holy Messenger of Allah said, “The head of the matter (religion) is Islam and its pillar is prayer and its peak jihad.” quoted by Termizi.
(My) Muslim Brothers and Mujahid Nation:
I extend my felicitation to you all on this occasion of Eid-ul-fitr, a day filled with joy and blessings. May Allah (SwT) accept, in His Sight, your fast, worships, charities, invoking, jihad and all good deeds.
It is a matter of joy and gratitude that Allah, the Almighty , has bestowed on us this day in a time that we are witness to consecutive victories and achievements on the ground of Jihad. Praise be to Allah (SwT), the military situation is in favor of Mujahideen at the country’s level. The blanket of invasion has rolled back from vast areas, thanks to the help of Allah (SwT) and the unparallel sacrifices of the Mujahideen and people. Vital centers of the enemy have come under successful attacks in cities. Writ and administration of the Islamic Emirate has become stronger comparatively. Ranks of Mujahideen are now more well-organized, active and unified in contrast with the past. However, it is a pity that the enemy uses some non-aware and non-informed sons of the nation as an instrument for obtainment of their wicked objectives. They, themselves, are retreating from the ground of the battle while sending them forward (to the front of battles).
I call on all soldiers, police and generally, on the very Opposition, not to destroy yourselves for the goals of the invaders and against your own people. Come and wage jihad alongside with your own people and together with the Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate against the common enemy in order to gain the bliss of the two worlds.
I urge religious scholars, tribal elders and the influential to convince these non-aware (youngsters) who are being used by the enemy and I call on their parents and relatives to strive to prevent their children from facing a loss of this world and the world to come.
As per the policy of the Islamic Emirate, Mujahideen should have a conduct of sympathy with those who leave ranks of the enemy. Give them (a warm) welcome. Appreciate and reward heroism of the committed Afghans who launch attacks on the enemy and then join the ranks of Jihad.
Praise be to Allah (SwT), the level of cooperation and trust of the people with Mujahideen has growingly enhanced. I thank, therefore, my faithful and patriotic people on behalf of the Mujahideen. I ask Allah (SwT) to grant them success, prosperity and happiness of the two worlds for the honest support.
Parallel to the battle ground, activities of the Islamic Emirate are forging ahead with initiatives in other sectors as well. Great services have been rendered in sectors of education, economy, adjudication and justice, call and guidance, cultural activities, martyrs, the handicapped, coordination and management of NGOs, prisoner’s affairs and civilian casualties. While asking Allah (SwT) to generously reward superiors and subordinates of these sectors for their efforts, in the mean time, I hope that more progress be made and effective activity carried out in the said areas.
Due to the efforts of the Political Office which performs its task under our instructions, Islamic Emirate has gained a political facade at world’s and internal levels. Many entities that used to oppose us now have come around to accept the Islamic Emirate as a reality. Exchange of the detainees with America as a result of the efforts of the representatives of the Political Office of the Islamic Emirate is a spectacular achievement.
The invaders- installed Administration has failed entirely, to the extent that it has lost trust of its domestic supporters and those who are funding it. It holds top position in corruption, usurpation of lands and public properties, plundering and lootings.
The current fake process under the name of elections has plunged the Kabul Administration and Western democracy into disrepute. In fact, the invaders and their internal allies wanted through the said process, to show to the Afghans that a (tangible) change has taken place. But the Afghans had realized their ambitions from the beginning. That is why majority of the people boycotted the process. Now all have come around to see that election and the ballots of the people were mere slogans to deceive people; sow racial, geographical and lingual and other hatred among the people. We all now see that the American game under the name of elections proved, as in the past, to be selections. So we had predicted. The power is in the hands of the invaders. What they say is compulsory on their internal allies to obey without taking into account interests of their country and people.
We want to tell American and European governments who have troops in Afghanistan or are intending to maintain political influence or military bases in Afghanistan, let the Afghans establish an independent Islamic government on the basis of their religious and national aspirations. If you want to deprive them of their right to form a government, it will be not only a tyranny and violation of human norms but also will result in the self-same consequences that you have seen in the past thirteen years. You might have realized that the Afghan people, whose history is full of struggles for the cause of Islam and independence, are not willing to accept governments installed by foreign hands.
We believe the war in Afghanistan will come to an end when all foreign invaders pull out of Afghanistan and a holy Islamic and independent regime prevails here. Presence of limited number of troops under whatever title it may be will mean continuation of occupation and the war. This is because none can tolerate invading forces in one’s soil. Similarly, we would like to tell those who are contemplating to sign a security treaty with the invaders to desist from acts which add to prolongation of the invasion and to causes of the war. The presence of the invaders in our country is not in the interest of anyone. The continuation of war aggravates security of the region and the country, particularly; it is a hurdle in the way of establishment of an Islamic regime and political independence; negates territorial integrity; gives rise to expansion of cultural invasion and bring about causes for ruining the coming generations.
We assure the world and the neighbors as we assured them in the past that our struggles are aimed only at forming an independent Islamic regime and obtaining independence of our country. We are not intending to interfere in the (internal) affairs of the region and the countries of the world, nor do we want to harm them. Similarly, we don’t tolerate their role to harm us and urge them to have reciprocal stance. I call on all Mujahideen in the frontier areas to protect their borders and maintain good relations with neighboring countries on the basis of mutual respect.
Concerning events and developments of the Middle East, I want to say that the global powers should leave people of the region to reach their legitimate aspirations. This is not justifiable to blame people’s uprising as terrorism and then rain down bombs on them or make prisons full with them. Such conduct will not break determination of a people.
We condemn, in strongest terms, the Israeli brutal action of martyring, injuring and driving from homes of hundreds of Palestinians. We call on the world, particularly, on the Islamic world that their remaining tight-lipped versus these brutalities is injustice and harms all. Practical and swift steps should be taken to prevent these gruesome brutalities, so that the security of the region and the world may not aggravate further.
Brave Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate:
It is your religious and national duty to try for the prosperity of the people and win their hearts and minds. Shun arrogance, vanity. To use weapon and force without justification allowed by Sharia rules; to threaten, harass and oppress people or harm their life, property and honor is a great crime. You will not be able to escape accountability in this world and the world to come for committing that. Your conduct with people should be nothing but tolerance, humility, forbearance, selflessness and mutual respect. Remember, God does not look at (judge) our outward image but look at our hearts and deeds that how we behave with people.
Mujahideen should make honest efforts to maintain justice and security in areas under the rule of the Islamic Emirate. They should clear (the areas from) thieves, highway robbers and saboteur elements and procure a conducive atmosphere of security and well-being for people.
Every caution should be taken to protect life and property of the public during Jihadic operations, so that, God forbid, someone is harmed. The Department of Prevention of Civilian Casualties should seriously pay attention to its task to prevent civilian casualties. Mujahideen should always remember that our steadfastness and success against the global invaders is the result of our holding the rope (religion) of Allah. So Mujahideen should, within the framework of obedience, follow the injunctions of Allah (SwT); the (traditions) of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and obey their superiors. Avoid hypocrisy, disagreements and discrimination. Strengthen the thread of unity, brotherhood and internal trust. Keep the rank of Jihad against the enemy as unbreakable as a cemented wall.
Our country is at the threshold of independence and freedom. We believe that the Almighty Allah (SwT) will bestow the blessing of a prosperous and self-reliant Islamic regime on the Afghans like the glory of defeating the invasion and tyranny. Afghanistan is a shared home of All the Afghans. They have right to serve this home. Islamic Emirate wants to establish a regime in which all ethnicities, tribes and groups of the Afghan society will see themselves. None will feel being alien.
As to the economic sector, Islamic Emirate will focus on agriculture, husbandry, and extraction of mines, infrastructures, developmental and technical systems with the help of the world’s assistance. (It will be) a regime which is servant of the society and will render service to the country and people in the light of justice and transparency, in the field of moral upbringing, educational, cultural, social, constructional and developmental sectors.
The Islamic Emirate believes implementation of an Islamic system guarantees well-being (of people) in this world and the world to come. Likely, it believes that science, technology, humanities sciences, incorporation and dissemination of new and positive (scientific) breakthroughs is a vital need for a strong and powerful nation to strengthen, stabilize and enrich itself and stand on its own feet. Therefore, we strongly reject the propaganda against the Islamic Emirate or the allegations that it is against education. Islamic Emirate believes getting knowledge (education) is a religious obligation.
The Islamic Emirate admits and totally believes in the rights given to men and women in the framework of Sharia which the holy religion of Islam has granted them and is committed to implementation of those rights.
To end, I extend you my felicitation on the occasion of Eid-ul-fitr and ask Allah, the Almighty to enable you to help the miserable and bereaved families in these holy days of felicity; to show compassion towards the orphans; to help the families of the martyrs, prisoners and refugees; to visit prisoners and the injured, serve them and admire them. Peace is on you all.
Mullah Muhammad Omar Mujahid
Amirul Momineen, Servant of Islam

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “Final Warning Regarding the Second Term of Elections”
Our countrymen know that on 14th June 2014, the conspiracy against Islam and our beloved homeland in the disguise of election is repeated. The Islamic Emirate deems it necessary to alert the people and warn them for the last time that they should not participate in this American process, deliberately or inadvertently.
You realize that this conspiracy is plotted by Americans. The history of the American invasions exhibits that they have always misused the public opinion by deceptions and temptations and eventually, they have imposed their own policies over the nations and have kept them under the yoke of their brutal occupation for years and years. The ultimate and sole outcome of this misleading process is the protraction of occupation and paving the road for the existence of foreign occupiers inside Afghanistan.
By holding elections, the Americans want to impose their own stooges on the people by deceiving them. You know that the candidates in the present elections are all those notorious figures who have supported the occupiers from the very beginning of the American invasion against their own religion, homeland and people. They left no stone unturned, mentally and practically, to protract the American occupation and explicitly reiterate that if empowered, they will sign the notorious agreement of enslaving our beloved homeland Afghanistan.
It is obvious that if their stooges are empowered, their masters will plot conspiracies and will impose them through their self carved puppets whatever they want to implement over the oppressed nation.
The Islamic Emirate regards these elections as one of the devil planning and is determined to halt this process by the support of Allah Almighty and backing of the nation as it has cut short numerous American conspiracies in the previous 13 years holy Jihad against the brutal foreign occupiers.
We once again call upon the people not to participate, even inadvertently, in forthcoming election drama of 14th June. They should completely reject it as they have done in the past. If they do not follow the instructions and demands of the Islamic Emirate and do participate in the elections, they will be held responsible for all the unpleasant consequences come what might, because following the infidels’ plans is a kind of directly supporting them and participation in this untoward process is considered a felony according to the sacred religion of Islam.
The Islamic Emirate calls upon all the devoted Mujahidin throughout the country to carry out their assaults in a well-organized manner according to the prescribed planning. They should circumspectly detect all the polling stations and should bring them under decisive attacks.
O Mujahidin! You should bring the foreign occupiers, the mercenary forces of stooge Kabul admin, the centers of police and Arbaki forces, their check-posts and convoys and should continue your assaults and blasts nonstop for 24 hours on the elections day so that the enemy is paralyzed and this process is aborted.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “To the Pious People of Afghanistan Regarding the Elections”
In the name of Allah, the most merciful and the most beneficial!
The prime objective of the invasion of the western infidels over Afghanistan under the American leadership was to overthrow the Islamic system and then to create hurdles in its revival; their second objective was to loot the assets of our beloved homeland and to threaten the regional nations.
The western coalition headed by America tried tooth and nail to impose its illegitimate occupation over Afghanistan by fighting, military force and all other possible and available means. In the wake of the previous several elections, the masses observed that the rein of power were handed over to such corrupt, alien and stooge people who won the topmost position in bribery and corruption on the world level. They people, who were made to win the election under the American supervision, imposed alien laws, control, culture and policies over the Afghans. They inflicted incurable losses to the religion, ethics, pure Islamic culture and prestige of the honorable Muslim dwellers of this pious land. They altered Afghanistan from a free, independent and a Muslim sovereign state into an occupied, dependent and western puppet state which cannot make any political and national decision independently. As the enemy has launched the process of selecting another tyrant ruler under the fake name of elections, in these circumstances, our pious countrymen should pay heed to this Quranic verse and should completely boycott the election.
وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَى وَلا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ
Translation: (And help one another in righteousness and in piety; but help not one another in sin and transgression. And fear ALLAH; Surely ALLAH is Severe in punishment.)
You realize that all the nominees and their supporters in this fake election are the supporters of the American occupation. They are cruel, corrupt and those people who had already betrayed the Afghan Mujahid masses. The Afghan should not participate in their future cruelties and felonies. About supporting the tyrant, the Holy Prophet (peace and blessing of Allah Almighty be upon him) says:
مَنْ مَشَى مَعَ ظَالِمٍ لِيُعِينَهُ وَهُوَ يَعْلَمُ أَنَّهُ ظَالِمٌ ، فَقَدْ خَرَجَ مِنَ الإِسْلامِ- رواه الطبرانی
Translation: (He who accompanied a tyrant to support him while knowing that he is a cruel person, verily he went astray.) Narrated by Tabarani.
Just like the previous occupation years, Americans want to impose these non-Afghan puppets over the Afghans through this counterfeit and un-Islamic election process so that they could openly work for the fulfillment of the unfinished American aspirations even after their abscondence from Afghanistan and to prolong the ongoing war against Islam and pious masses of Afghanistan through the financial, political, military and propaganda support of the west.
You observed that in the previous elections, the masses welcomed the demand of the Islamic Emirate thoroughly boycotted the elections but it was the western media which took the enemy side and announced the failed elections as a successful one.
The candidates for these elections are proposed by America and each one of them will inevitably try his best to implement the agenda already set for him for the Americans. Therefore, every one of them is saying very openly and shamelessly that he will sign the ‘Basic Security Agreement’ which is actually the ignominious enslavement agreement of Afghanistan.
Americans could simply empower anyone of their stooges and could save their time and money lavishly spent for these drama-like elections but they do not want to do so; because in this way the stooge will be only one and American will be solely and wholly held responsible for his selection.
Americans want to keep a number of their stooge in their service through elections and secondly to throw the responsibility of electing these stooge over the Afghans. In the future, they can frankly say that you Afghans had yourself selected these people as your rulers in the elections.
O the Muslim and Mujahid Afghan people!
Do not let the enemy play with your minds and wills through this deceitful drama of elections for the second time and to impose a ruler upon you who could keep you for another stretched period of time under yoke of American and allied occupiers.
The only way of terminating the American occupation and getting rid of the ongoing calamity is achieving complete independence and restoring the system of Islam; and this lofty ideal can be achieved neither by elections, selections, coalitions nor following alien policies. Lofty ideals need huge sacrifices and the revival of your determination which was the only tool in your hands for defeating and breaking the British and Russian empires and which has confronted America and the whole NATO alliance with a humiliating defeat today.
O the Muslim and valor Afghan people!
Rest assured that your enemy (i.e. America and its allied forces) are on the verge of collapse inside Afghanistan. They are demolishing their bases by themselves and they have already announced the withdrawal of their forces from Afghanistan as they have realized that the permanent subjugation of this land is unattainable.
How can a few powerless slaves control this country by proxy for the west which could not be subjugated by America and its western allied forces with all their political and military might and equipments?
For the complete failure of this deceitful process of elections, for the assurance of your freedom and for the restoration of an ideal Islamic system, you should persist to support those Mujahidin who are scarifying their sweet lives in the path of Allah Almighty for the liberation of our beloved homeland, for the elevation of our sacred religion and for the safety and security of the honorable people of Afghanistan.
Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate, who had carried out hundreds of attacks over the enemies in the first phase of elections and had destroyed a large number of their polling stations, are once again fully prepared to operate against the workers and polling stations in the second phase of these counterfeit elections. Therefore, you (the masses) should remain far away from the polling stations on 14th June 2014 least you should be hurt or killed.
With best regards,
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Mullā Muḥmmad ‘Umar: “Message Of Felicitation Regarding the Release of Jihādī Heads From ‘Guantanamo Jail'”
I would like to congratulate from the core of my heart the whole Afghan nation, the devoted Mujahidin and the kith and kin of the prisoners on the auspicious occasion of this great achievement of the release of five distinguished Mujahidin heads from the ‘Guantanamo Jail’.
All praise is to Allah Almighty! Due to the benevolence of Allah Almighty, the enormous sacrifices of courageous Mujahidin and the statesmanship of the Political Bureau of the Islamic Emirate in Qatar, five prominent heads of the Islamic Emirate are soundly released from the ‘Guantanamo Jail’.
This huge and vivid triumph requires from all Mujahidin to offer thanks to the Benevolent Creator who accepted the sincere sacrifices of our Mujahid nation and managed the release of these five renowned Mujahidin from the enemy’s clutch.
The efforts and endeavors of all Mujahidin, leading council of the Islamic Emirate, the detainers and keepers of the American prisoner ‘Bergdahl’ and generally the whole nation which played a significant role in this colossal victory are appreciated and I beg even deeper divine help, guidance and favorable turn of circumstances for all of them.
I would like to thank his highness ‘Shaikh Tameem Bin Hamd Al-Thani’ the Amir of Qatar, for his sincere and friendly efforts and mediation in the release of these five prominent Mujahidin heads. I pray to Allah Almighty to reward him reciprocally in this world and in the world hereafter.
May Allah Almighty get, just like these five heads, all those oppressed prisoners released who are incarcerated in the path of liberating their country and serving their creed.
This huge accomplishment brings the glad tidings of liberation of the whole country and reassures us that our aspirations are on the verge of fulfillment, Insha-Allah.
And it is never hard for Allah Almighty.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “About the Release of Five Heads from ‘Guantanamo Jail'”
We heartily congratulate the whole nation, Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate, particularly the kith and kin of the released ones that five heads of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan namely Mulla Muhammad Fazal Akhund, Mulla Noorulla Noori, Mulla Khairulla Khairkhwa, Mulla Abdul Haq Waseeq and Moulavi Muhammad Nabi who had been incarcerated for the last thirteen years in ‘Guantanamo Jail’ are released due to the benevolence of Allah Almighty and the sacrifices of the heroic and courageous Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate.
These five heads were released in the result of an indirect negotiation between the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and the United States mediated by Qatari government. They will remain with their families inside Qatar and will lead a normal life.
To get the preceding five heads released, it is worth mentioning that the Islamic Emirate handed over the American soldier to the US who was captive with us approximately for the last five years.
These five heads of the Islamic Emirate were handed over on Saturday at 07:00 pm Afghanistan standard time to the delegation of Qatar who has been waiting there in ‘Guantanamo Bay’ for the previous three days. This delegation, including five heads of the Islamic Emirate, left Guantanamo at 10:00 pm and will arrive in Qatar today Sunday. They will be received and welcomed by the Political Bureau of the Islamic Emirate inside Qatar and members of the leading council of the Islamic Emirate. Similarly, the American prisoner ‘Bergdahl’ was handed over in the suburbs of ‘Khost’ province to the other side on Saturday at 07:00 pm Afghanistan standard time.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has been taking all possible measures since long to get all the Afghan prisoners released whether they are incarcerated inside the country or outside and to let them enjoy a free and peaceful life.
In the future too, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is determined to get all the Mujahidin prisoners released as soon as possible. In this regard, we expect all the legal and human rights societies particularly the United Nations to share and accelerate their efforts with Afghan people and the Islamic Emirate on the basis of human sympathy so that all the incarcerated people are freed and their basic legal and human rights are safeguarded and they could lead an independent and peaceful life of their own accord.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan
