New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “Message of Condolence Concerning the Attack in the Prophet’s Mosque”


It is with great sadness to have learnt that an attack has taken place against the guards of the Prophet’s Mosque in the holy city of Medina, causing multiple casualties.

The Islamic Emirate – which has been shocked by this gruesome act – condemns this incident in the strongest of terms and considers it an act of enmity and hatred towards Islamic rituals. Such acts in al Haram al Nabawi can never be tolerable.

Al Haramain al Sharifain (The Two Holy Sanctuaries) holds a collective value for every Muslim and no act of hostility towards it can ever be acceptable or tolerated. This crime has shown us just how cruel and full of hatred the plots of our enemies are towards our religious sanctums. This must prompt the Muslims to jointly combat it both physically and intellectually.

We pray to the Almighty Allah to safeguard al Haramain al Sharifain. May Allah take revenge from every person and circle that holds such aspiration against this joint value of the Muslims. It seems there is a conspiracy behind these acts therefore the Muslims must do their utmost to dismantle such plots.
