Esteemed noble Islamic Scholars! May peace and blessing of Allah be upon you all
You are fully aware that following the end of Prophethood, scholars have been entrusted with spiritually leading, reforming and enlightening the entire Islamic Ummah. And on top of individual rectification of the Ummah, they also hold a huge responsibility towards the crucial issues of the Muslims.
Although the case of Jihad in Afghanistan is not an intricate and precarious matter however it is still among the critical issues of the Islamic Ummah.
You already know that an Islamic government ruled this land fifteen years earlier where political power rested in the hands of the most sincere, committed and Mujahid cast of the society meaning students of religious knowledge and its scholars. Shariah was instated, Hudood and Qisas were established, the Quranic ‘promoting good and preventing vice’ command was enacted while politically, economically, socially and in every part of life, all rule was derived solely from the Holy Quran and Prophetic traditions.
However the historic enemies of Islam, those who have continued their hostilities towards Islam specifically towards political order of Islam over the past fourteen centuries and have caused irreparable damage to the Islamic Ummah through imperial wars and crusades, this historical western enemy of Islam formed a coalition under the leadership of America and declared their enmity with the Islamic Emirate. They initially launched a propaganda war against it, then followed it up with economic and political sanctions and then finally launched a military invasion on our independent Islamic homeland.
The tyrannical invading western infidels toppled our Islamic government, occupied our land, condemned and subjugated us in our own home, took control of our land and air space, built huge air and military bases in our homeland in pursuit of their global domination and to humiliate our valiant, honorable and Mujahid nation, they installed west based puppets who had fled our society to power.
Our nation – in spite of the suffering, distress and exhaustion – was ordered towards the obligation of Jihad by fifteen hundred Islamic scholars against the American invaders under the clear religious texts.

ـــ وفی المبسوط للإمام السرخسي (۲-۱۰): ثم أمر رسول الله صلى الله وسلم بالقتال إذا كانت البداية منهم فقال تعالى ﴿أُذِنَ لِلَّذِينَ يُقَاتَلُونَ بِأَنَّهُمْ ظُلِمُوا﴾ [البقرة: ۱۹۱] أي: أذن لهم في الدفع وقال تعالى ﴿فَإِنْ قَاتَلُوكُمْ فَاقْتُلُوهُمْ﴾ [البقرة:۱۹۱] وقال تعالى ﴿وَإِنْ جَنَحُوا لِلسَّلْمِ فَاجْنَحْ لَهَا﴾ [الأنفال: ۶۱] ثم أمر بالبداية بالقتال فقال تعالى ﴿وَقَاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّى لا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ﴾ [البقرة: ۱۹۷[
So in accordance with the religious fatwa (edict) issued by the esteemed scholars, the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate under a single leadership and with unwavering resolve began their Jihadi uprising against the invading infidels.
This Jihadi struggle passed through various testing stages over the past fourteen years and a point once came when the western invaders deployed around 130 thousand troops equipped with tanks, artillery, aircrafts and state of the art technology while being backed by tens of thousands of internal hireling militias, all engaged in a war against us. The invaders carried out bombings and unprecedented transgressions but still failed to break the resolve of our believing nation.
All praise is due to Allah the scales of war have been reversed due to the help of Allah and sacrifices of the Mujahid nation. Mujahideen are advancing and the invaders retreating and withdrawing. To date tens of banners (flags) of the invading nations have been lowered and all its soldiers forced to withdraw with the exception of America, Britian and a few others who insist on occupation. Tens of thousands of troops of these nations have also been forced to withdraw and only a tiny contingent are spending their time inside fortified bases whereas all praise belong to Allah, the vast majority of Afghanistan is under the control of Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate and being ruled by the Shariah of Allah Almighty.
However the western invaders – even though they have been defeated and humiliated by Allah Almighty on the battlefield – have not abandoned their determination to occupy. The invaders have employed various stratagems to prolong their indirect occupation, an important part of which is called the ‘Peace Process’ which seeks the surrender of Mujahideen and invalidation of Jihad by legitimizing the stooge Kabul regime and by passing preposterous fatwas.
The transgressing enemy now wants to pacify the Jihadi uprising of the Afghan nation through misleading propaganda, psychological warfare, undercover plots, fake fatwas and other nonmilitary tactics like peace processes.
The invaders are determined to force the Mujahideen to abandon Jihad, raise their hands in surrender and accept an invasion which cannot be justified religiously nor accepted by human conscience.
In order to give a legal face to the illegitimate Kabul administration and in the series of propaganda and deceptive ‘Peace Process’ efforts, this time around the enemies of our religion, country and independence want to fool internationally respected scholars and Islamic countries by convening a conference of Islamic Scholars in the city of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia or in another country if Saudi government refuses the offer. The supposed ‘High Peace Council’ of the surrogate Kabul administration has declared that this conference will be convened at their behest in order to legitimize the presence of infidel invaders in the Islamic country of Afghanistan by providing misleading information and painting the legitimate Jihad of the Mujahideen as corruption. They want to present the sacred Jihad in Afghanistan which is on the brink of success as unlawful bloodshed which opposes the texts of Shariah and defames the name of Jihad.
We wish – due to Islamic brotherhood and in light of Shariah – to send the following message to the noble scholars of the world specifically to the scholars of Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations:
You know better than anyone else that the American Taghut (idol) is the most tyrannical occupier of the current era and her hands are stained with the blood of hundreds of thousands of Muslims. You also understand that our nation is a Muslim nation, a poor suffering nation whose home has been invaded by foreign forces. You also realize that the Jihad of our nation is a legitimate struggle being guided and led by esteemed scholars and is the final effort of an oppressed nation against a transgressing occupier. You also recognize that this conference under the misleading title of peace is being convened by the invaders and their stooges solely for the subjugation of our people. And surely you are also aware of the tricks of the western media that no matter how much you criticize the west inside the conference hall or talk about truth and Shariah, all of it shall stay inside the conference hall and only that will come out to the public which is in the interest of America and damaging to the Muslims and sacred Jihad. They shall characterize sacred Jihad founded on the texts and principles of Shariah as terrorism and will point to noble scholars as reference.
Therefore we wish to remind you once again that may Allah forbid, your attending of such conference organized by aggressors is not interpreted as a sort of support for them and may Allah forbid, you do not become an instance of this admonition.
Allah Almighty says:
وَلَا تَرْكَنُوٓا۟ إِلَى ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا۟ فَتَمَسَّكُمُ ٱلنَّارُ وَمَا لَكُم مِّن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ مِنْ أَوْلِيَآءَ ثُمَّ لَا تُنصَرُونَ »ـ هود 115 )
Or as stated by the Prophet (peace be upon him):
( من مشى مع ظالم ليعينه وهو يعلم أنه ظالم فقد خرج من الإسلام. رواه الطبراني.)
Esteemed noble scholars!
The Islamic Emirate believes with complete reliance on divine help that the enemies of Islam will fail in such intelligence ploys just as they have faced defeat on the battlefield. But due to Islamic brotherhood, we hope that the governments of the Islamic world will not facilitate such conventions. Our message to the noble scholars is that they avoid participation in this conference and decide on this matter based on the book of Allah, Prophetic traditions and demands of faith. Do not afford an opportunity to the invading infidels in Afghanistan to misuse your name and participation in this conference as means of attaining their malicious objective. If it is not possible to openly declare your support for the Mujahideen, then it surely is possible for us to safeguard ourselves from such plots of the infidels and adopt a stance of non-participation.
May Allah allow it that our pain and message reaches you so that we are delivered from torment and punishment of the hereafter due to failing in taking into consideration the rights of each other.
