To the Struggling Islamic Ummah
"But they never lost heart for that which did befall them in Allah's Way, nor did they weaken nor degrade themselves. And Allah loves as-Sabireen (the patient ones)." [3:146]
O Brothers in Islam in every location:
As-Salaamu `Alaykum wa-Rahmatullah.
You all hear and follow what the colonizing American forces are doing in our land - from evil deeds, to conquering, to killings of the innocents, and to humiliating the Afghans. After having entered our lands by stepping on the skulls and bones of women and children, and after having used the strongest and ugliest tools of destruction - from immense bombs to weapons of mass destruction, which America bans all other countries of owning. They also invade other peaceful countries because they think that they own some of these weapons. So, what good has America done in Afghanistan? And what has it accomplished to the world which it claims to lead?
Did America end the poverty situation in Afghanistan? Did America provide safety in the region and in the world after having invaded Afghanistan?
Indeed, America has invaded our land with their massive weapons, and has killed thousands of innocent and poor victims, while claiming to be fighting "Terrorism." So, has America guaranteed the end of terrorism by doing this?
Shouldn't America have first tried to overcome the Jewish Israeli "Terrorism" in Palestine, and to stop its support of the Israeli people who rely on it in the destruction and the killing of the Palestinian people and the occupation of their land? Shouldn't America have first fought the Indian "Terrorism" against the Muslims in Kashmir?
Indeed, all the Muslims know that America only wants to fight Islam, and to capture everyone that tries to apply Islamic Shari'ah, because it knows the biggest danger to its cause and the Jewish cause is Islam and its people who stick to it with the truth. America cannot say they are fighting Islam, so it calls what it is fighting "Terrorism." America wants to control the whole world, and to own all the riches that the poor nations have, and to be in total safety after doing that!
If America thinks, after what it has done in the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and what it has done to the Afghan people, that it will be safe and that it will attain its goals of total control, then it is wrong and it should learn from the past mistakes of the arrogant forces and how Allah destroyed them because of their wickedness.
Indeed, America thinks it has won its war against the Muslims, but we Muslims know that there are still days to come and that time is moving forward and the war still goes on. America and its Jewish allies have reached the climax of arrogance and evil deeds, and the only thing left is for Allah to destroy and demolish them, like he has done to their predecessors.
We are still tied to Allah's Promise (subhannahu wa ta'aala), and we are very sure about it, for Him to give us victory and to give us the punishing hand. As for America's promises, they are invalid and it cannot accomplish them.
If America really thinks that it will be able to do as it pleases with us, and to capture us and end us and the Muslims, with its weapons and the strength of its air force and its bombs and missiles... Indeed, we have the only weapon that America doesn't own: the weapon of faith (Imaan) in Allah, the servitude of Allah and trust (tawakkul) on Him (subhannahu wa ta'aala). What is the point of peace if the hands of the believers don't hold anything? And we see today, countries that owned big war weaponry and force, those weapons became more of a hindrance than they were useful to attain victory due to the amount of ruinous matters they spread and their submission to their enemies and their betrayal of their religion and nation.
Indeed, the Afghan people are a nation which trusts in Allah, they are a struggling, patient, Muslim nation, which won't accept the occupation of its lands by disbelievers, and who won't keep quiet upon injustice, who will fight America and whomever it brought with it, and which also needs, after Allah (ta'aala), the unity of every Muslim in all deeds and the most important deed is their supplication to Allah and their praise.
Allah has given us and you success to serve His religion and to work on pleasing Him, and our victory against the disbelieving enemy, and most importantly, that he is the All-Strong and All-Mighty (al-Qawee, al-`Azeez).
Wa-Salaamu `Alaykum wa-Rahmatullahi wa-Barakatuhu
The Servant of Islam and Muslims
