To the Mujahid Nation of Afghanistan and to the Muslims Around the World
I wish you all a very happy Eid. May Allah accept your charity, pilgrimages, services and all good deeds in the path of Islam.
I hope you celebrate these days with happiness and perform Eid prayers, pilgrimage and all worships properly.

On this auspicious day, millions of Muslims from all over the world perform pilgrimage and it is a day of worship and brotherhood that invites Muslims to unite, sympathize and give charity in the path of Allah.

Our countrymen are celebrating Eid while the Islamic system exists and peace is ensured throughout the country, therefore, we should thank Allah Almighty to gain further rewards.
Under the rule of the Islamic Emirate, the Islamic system has been established, the Islamic Sharia law has been implemented, and concrete steps have been taken to strengthen the religious centers. Reforms are underway in law-making, governance, judiciary, economy, culture and other related fields. These are the goals and values for which we have fought and made great sacrifices.

At the national level, the independence of Afghanistan has been restored once again, brotherhood and national unity have been strengthened, all kinds of prejudices such as race, language and region have been eliminated, the territorial integrity of the country has been preserved and all borders are strictly defended and protected. Afghanistan’s national assets, such as customs and revenues, mines, state land, forests and other common assets have been taken from powerful individuals and now being protected as state assets.

Under the rule of the Islamic Emirate, concrete measures have been taken to save women from many traditional oppressions, including forced marriages and their Sharia rights have been protected. Moreover, necessary steps have been taken for the betterment of women as half of the society in order to provide them with a comfortable and prosperous life according to the Islamic Sharia. The negative aspects of the past 20-year occupation related to women’s Hijab and misguidance will end soon. By issuing the six-article decree on women’s rights, the status of women as a free and dignified human being has been restored and all institutions have been obliged to help women in securing marriage, inheritance and other rights.
With the functioning of the Sharia courts, the Holy Sharia has once again been put into practice. Religious and Sharia orders that were not possible to be implemented are now being enforced. In addition, the great duty of vice and virtue is being carried out. Necessary measures have been taken according to the Islamic principles, due to which the society is improving day by day and the evildoers are about to disappear.

In the economic sector, the prediction of the country’s economic collapse and crisis has been proven wrong. Economic collapse was prevented as a result of Islamic Emirate’s wise measures, sincerity and transparency. For the first time in recent history, Afghanistan has become economically self-sufficient, furthermore, concrete steps have been taken and are underway in rehabilitation, reconstruction, agriculture, mining and other related sectors.

The Islamic Emirate calls on national investors and businessmen to play a constructive role in the development of the country by investing in various fields in order to further develop the country’s economic sector and eliminate existing problems. IEA is committed to ensure their security and all government institutions are responsible for providing necessary facilities to investors in order to pave the ground for the country’s growth and economic development.

The war that lasted for decades in the country, left hundreds of thousands of orphans, widows and needy people, and the Islamic Emirate is committed to helping them secure their rights. Also, I call upon rich people and specially the relatives of the needy people to extend their support and pay full attention to their education and livelihood. After decades of war, now, Islamic system is enforced and peace has been ensured in the whole country, therefore, I call upon those who threaten peace to start a comfortable life in their country with their fellow citizens and help to further strengthen and stabilize peace.

Significant steps have been taken to divert beggars from begging and thousands of beggars who are in need are being given assistance by the Islamic Emirate. However, in order to prevent professional beggars, it is necessary for scholars, clerics and community elders to take an active role in educating people and encouraging them to work.

As a result of continues efforts of the Islamic Emirate, the cultivation of poppy has eradicated in the country, farmers are looking for alternatives and legal cultivation is expanding, meanwhile, ban has imposed on production, trafficking and use of all kinds of drugs and now, many citizens, specially the youth are saved from this harm.

Currently, many institutions of the Islamic Emirate are working to treat those who became addicted in the past 20-year and efforts are underway to bring them back to a normal life.
During the occupation period, many people were deprived of their rights and national assets were seized by powerful individuals, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has appointed a special commission for restitution of state grabbed land, so far, hundreds of thousands of acres of state land have been identified and freed from grabbers. Since, preventing oppression is a public duty, therefore, I call upon all the citizens to extend their cooperation with this commission.

The Islamic Emirate wants good political and economic relations with the world, especially with Islamic countries, and has fulfilled its responsibility in this regard. Just as we do not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, in the same way we do not allow others to interfere in our internal affairs.
My advice to the officials of the Islamic Emirate is to carry out the given responsibility seriously; providing services and wellbeing of the people should remain on top. Keep your doors open toward the people, do things efficiently and never treat people in a way that makes them feel less than you. This is the same nation who sacrificed their lives and properties during the past 20-year. I instruct the security officials to pay full attention to the well-being, service and safety of the citizens, especially during Eid. Consider all measures for the welfare and safety of the countrymen and extend your help and support to the families of martyrs, disabled and orphans.

Dear Countrymen!

It is our shared responsibility to protect and serve our Islamic system, the current system is the result of sacrifices of thousands of Mujahideen, let’s stand by each other, eliminate conspiracies, value security and prosperity and work together for its further enhancement.
It is with immense pleasure, that this year thousands of our countrymen went to attend and perform pilgrimage. All necessary facilities are provided and they are being served properly by the officials of the Islamic Emirate. I request all the pilgrims from around the world to pray for the prosperity of the entire Islamic Ummah and especially for the people of Afghanistan, so that Allah may grant them happiness in this world and the hereafter.
I strongly condemn Israel’s brutal act on Palestinian women, children and defenceless Muslims and ask other countries to do their duty in order to prevent this great human crime and cruel atrocities.

I request the people and government of Sudan to leave their differences and work together for unity and brotherhood, rather, the solution to the problems of the Islamic Ummah relies on their unity, considering the fact, every Muslim has an obligation to be fulfilled with sincerity, doing so will eliminate conspiracy and Muslims will enjoy the blessing of unity and Islamic brotherhood.

At the end, I once again wish you a happy Eid-ul Adha. May Allah grant us the opportunity to celebrate Eid under the shadow of the Islamic system.
