The Latest Statement of the Commander of The Faithful Mullah Muhammed 'Umar (may Allah preserve him) Regarding Recent Events

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Praise be to Allah, the One who said: 'Go forth, light-armed and heavy-armed, and strive with your wealth and your lives in the way of Allah! That is best for you if you but knew,' and 'Oh you who believe! what is the matter with you, that, when you are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, you cling heavily to the earth? Do you prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter. Unless you go forth, He will punish you with a grievous penalty, and put others in your place; but Him you would not harm in the least. For Allah hath power over all things.'

And may He shower His peace and blessings upon His Prophet, the Imaam of the Mujahideen and Commander of the Horsemen, our Prophet Muhammed, who said: "I have been sent in the final hours with the sword so that none is worshipped but Allah Alone with no partner, and my provision has been provided under the shades of my sword, and humiliation and belittlement is on whoever opposes my order, and who ever imitates a people is one of them." - (Abu Dawood and Ahmad).

To proceed:

And so oh great ummah (nation) of Islaam, oh 'best of nations risen up for mankind, you command good, and forbid evil and you believe in Allah.'

Oh Muslims in the East and West?

Oh you who believe in Allah as Lord, and Islaam as way of life, and Muhammed (s) as Prophet and Messenger?

Oh Muslims everywhere:

Undoubtedly you are closely watching with all interest and empathy the crusade which is being led by the United States of America, with full support of Britain and the European Christian states, and NATO and Russia, and the ex-Communist states and whoever agrees with them from the people of the creed of disbelief, and the apostates and the cowards amongst the Muslims - they are gathering their armies and campaigning as one party against the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, aiming to fulfill one thing, which they themselves have announced: the termination and destruction of the Islamic Government of Afghanistan; and end what they call: 'bases of terrorism'.

And undoubtedly you understand that which calls these people to do their crusade attacks is hidden deep (in their hearts) as Allah (swt) informed us in His noble book: 'Nor will they cease fighting you until they turn you back from your faith if they can. And if any of you Turn back from their faith and die in unbelief, their works will bear no fruit in this life and in the Hereafter; they will be companions of the Fire and will abide therein' - they want to destroy this Islaamic state, because it is Islaamic, or for what reason, and under what law or practice is it permissible to punish a suspected individual, for mere suspecting - let alone attack and punish a whole nation because of that "suspect"?!

What the heavenly laws (i.e. Allah's laws) and even the man-made laws of earth have agreed upon is that an individual is innocent until proven guilty?. but they fight us because we have established a unique Islamic system, and this in reality is worse for them then the attack upon New York and Washington.

Oh Muslims of the World:

The question now is no longer if the attacks on America were correct or not, for what happened, happened; supports it the one who supports it, and opposes it the one who opposes it.

The question now is: what is the obligation of the Muslim ummah towards this new crusade against Afghanistan?!

What is the ruling on the one who allies with the crusaders and stands by their side in any manner?

That which this ummah has agreed upon, and that which the a'imah (the scholars) have agreed upon is that in this condition in which we are in today, jihad against the invaders becomes fard 'ayn (a personal obligation) upon every Muslim, no permission is sought for a son from his father, nor slave from his owner, nor husband from his wife (and vice-versa), and there is no difference amongst the scholars regarding this.

This is the ruling on jihad against the invaders and the obligation of the Muslims towards it.

As for the ruling upon the supporters of the crusaders, then Allah, the Most High has outlined it already. Allah, the Most High, says in His final revelation: 'O you who believe! Do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends. They are friends of one another. And whoever of you takes them for friends is (one) of them. Surely Allah does not guide wrongdoing people.'

Allah, may He be glorified, outlines in this passage three matters:

1. The forbiddance of allying with the Jews and Christians and supporting them.

2. That whoever supports them, and helps them then the ruling upon him, is the same as the ruling upon them. And;

3. That supporting them is from the character and signs of the hypocrites.

And He, may He be glorified has shown how allying and supporting the disbelievers nullifies imaan (belief) in Allah and His Messenger, when He said: 'You see many of them supporting those who have disbelieved. What an evil thing they have brought unto themselves, if Allah casts His anger on them, and they are cast into hell-fire forever. And had they believed in Allah, and His Messenger and what revealed upon him, they wouldn't have supported them.'

And from these passages and others the scholars have ruled that supporting the disbelievers against the Muslims is a nullifier from the nullifiers of Islaam and that the ruler upon the doer is apostasy, and expulsion from this millah (creed).

Oh noble scholars of Islaam, and callers to Allah everywhere:

Your priority is complying with these truths and not fearing the blame of the blamers, and this is part of the covenant of Allah with the people of knowledge: 'And remember Allah took a covenant from the People of the Book, to make it known and clear to mankind, and not to hide it.' So they clarify the matters of this religion to the people, and they arouse them on jihad, 'Oh Messenger arouse the believers on fighting.'

And oh businessmen:

Your priority is to donate and give in the path of Allah, Most High, who said: 'Verily Allah has purchased from the believers their wealth and their bodies in exchange for paradise.' And, 'The parable of those who spend their property in the way of Allah is as the parable of a grain growing seven ears (with) a hundred grains in every ear; and Allah multiplies for whom He pleases; and Allah is All-Embracing, All-Knowing.'

And oh Muslim youth:

Your priority is jihad and preparation, and preparing that steel for fire, as Allah says: 'then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush'.

And oh Muslims everywhere:

The Prophet (s) said: 'There will not cease to be a group from my ummah dominant upon the truth (and in another narration: fighting upon the truth). Those who abandon them will not be able to harm them until the Decree of Allah comes' (Saheeh Muslim).

So this hadeeth categorized people into three groups:

  1. at-Taa'ifah al-Mansoorah (the Victorious Party): and they are the people of Islaam, who fight upon it.

  2. at-Taa'ifah al-Mukhaalifah (the Opposing Party): and they are the Jews, Christians and the people of disbelief, the apostates and the cowards from amongst the Muslims.

  3. at-Taa'ifah al-Mukhthilah (the Cowardly Party): and they were the ones who refused to support the Muslim group and decorated that nicely for the people.

And there is no other group; so let every Muslim look to see in which group he fits.

And in this hadeeth we also understand that their opposition from the disbelievers and people claiming to be Muslims will not harm them.

And we are certain of Allah's victory, which He promised in the Qur'an, on the tongue of the Prophet (s), but this victory is on the condition that we give victory to the religion of Allah and having sincerity in doing so. Allah, Most High says: 'Verily Allah will assist those who assist Him, verily Allah is Most-Powerful, Most-Honourable' and He said: 'If you assist Allah, Allah will assist you and make you firm'. And when Allah gives victory to us, neither America, nor its allies or helpers will be able to stand to face us, Allah says: 'If Allah assists you, then there is none to defeat you'.

America and its partners, no matter how much power they have, none of that equates with anything from the power of the Most Powerful, the Most Strong; for Allah says: 'And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah's Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape. And prepare against them what force you can and horses tied at the frontier' And He, the Most High says: 'So fight you against the friends of Satan; ever feeble indeed is the plot of Satan'.

The soldiers of America, their numbers and preparation does not frighten us, because we are from the soldiers of Allah, who said: 'And to Allah are the soldiers of the Heavens and the Earth, and Allah is All-Wise, All-Honored.'

And the economic strength of America does not astound or stun us, for Allah, the Most High says: 'And for Allah are the treasures of the Heavens and the Earth, but the hypocrites fail to understand'.

And its defense measures do not astonish us, for Allah has said: 'Those who disbelieve give to distract from the path of Allah, so they will donate and then regret, and be defeated'.

And the advanced military systems of America do not threaten us at all, for Allah, may He be glorified says: 'while they deemed that their fortresses would defend them against Allah; but Allah came to them whence they did not expect, and cast terror into their hearts; they demolished their houses with their own hands and the hands of the believers; therefore take a lesson, O you who have eyes!' and 'And those who disbelieved came down from their fortresses and (Allah) planted fear into their fears, some you kill, and some you imprison, and you inherited their lands and homes and wealth, and a land which you did not step on (from before); and Allah is capable of doing everything.'

So, oh Muslims:

Be certain of Allah's victory that He promised us?for Allah does not break His promise.

'And Allah will assist those who assist Him, verily Allah is All-Power, All-Honoured. And we settled them in the land; establish the prayers, and give zakah (alms), and command good and forbid evil; and unto Allah is the ending of matters'.

Wassalamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullah
