Mullah Omar: Ameer ul Mumineen (رحمہ اللہ) – The Successor of Glories
27 September 2015
By Muhammad Rasool
A lot of interesting words can be written about Ameer ul Mumineen (رحمہ اللہ)
because from the historical point of view, he was such a great man who kept
the flag of Islam high in a time when everyone was finding a refuge to hide.
He added a glorious chapter in the history of Muslim Ummah and especially
Afghanistan. Many writings are being authored about the personality of Ameer
ul Mumineen encompassing amazing facts that leave a human mind marveled.
Everyone is trying to write something that none other has written. Even if
someone has already written something, they change its order and style. In my
mind, there are two traits of Ameer Ul Mumineen which I feel are very
significant among his qualities.
Defender of the fruits of Jihad:
No one has a difference of opinion about the fact that victories in Afghan
Jihad are not only important for Afghanistan but they're important for the
Muslims of entire world. Because when some commanders fell to internal strife
after the defeat of Russia, we witnessed that the great scholars from around
the world actively participated to resolve peace between them. Some respected
scholars and elders had to bear a lot of afflictions during this process, but
they did not worry about all this and continued to work towards
reconciliation. Such moves show that the unity in our ranks holds a great
importance for them.
Therefore, an amazing unity was established at the time of Russian
withdrawal, but unfortunately some shortsighted leaders did not keep Jihadi
objectives in mind and followed the path chosen by their enemy while on the
other hand, kuffaar are united against Muslims even with millions of
We are well aware that the US helped Afghans against Russia and did not
withhold any sort of support. However, when the matter reached to the point
where Mujahideen started discussing the implementation of Islamic government,
the enmity between the same infidels suddenly turned into friendship. Both
these rivals – US and Russia – agreed on the fact that the path of
establishing Islamic government in Afghanistan must he stopped.
When Russia was defeated, western thinkers had said: ''Our temporary enemy is
defeated but our eternal enemy has just awoken from slumber”. Meaning that
the enmity of Russia and America is although temporary but the animosity with
Islam is eternal and everlasting. Since Islamic System is unacceptable to
both of them, they began their attacks against the Islamic System together.
The motive of both countries was to instigate infighting between Afghan
Jihadi groups in such a way that would eradicate the glory of Jihad from the
minds of people. Jihad was declared mischief by both Communist and
Nationalist agents. Common masses were affected by this propaganda. Islamic
Movements were depicted as failed organizations.
When the differences between groups rose to peak and life became difficult
for masses, the Defender of the glorious Jihad arrived in the battlefield
with his sword unsheathed. Candles of hope were lit and the fragrance of
Jihad spread across the land. Those who sacrifice their lives for the sake of
Islam were glorified. The heads that were severed for implementing Shariah in
the path of Allah met eternal success. The men who sacrificed their youth for
the Shariah of Muhammad SAW were looked at as valuable. They implemented the
Islamic System and showed the whole world that this is what we sacrificed our
Continuation of Afghan History:
Due to internal conflicts and differences, the Afghan nation was on a point
where historically, no possibility of peace could be expected. The enemy
believed that these people would never reconcile now and their view was
correct to some extent because Afghan's could leave significant marks in the
history only when they had united themselves. Otherwise, in the absence of
unity and agreement, only the stories of Zardad Khel would be written.
The greatest challenge at that time on the lips of global media and the world
was the partition of Afghanistan. Some people in Afghanistan even fancied
ministries and other political positions that may be given to them through
this process of partition. But in the middle of all this, one man raised the
banner of Jihad that ruined all the wicked aims of enemies. All those who
were making plans of partition disappeared in their armholes like rats. He
protected the ''Abdaali” geography such that the analysts ran towards Moscow,
Washington and Istanbul. Every plot for this partition failed miserably and a
historic unity was established in the country based on the foundation of
Today we can witness what relationship has united the Mujahideen in northern
areas under the leadership of Islamic Emirate? How will we picture these
scenes today when the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate are spread across the
dimensions and in mutual union?
Yes it was Ameer ul Mumineen Mullah Omar (ra) who was the heir of historic
glories of Afghans, who neither tolerated the division of this country nor
allowed its destruction. Some Western agents hit severe blows on this
brotherhood of Muslim Nation but Ameer Ul Mumineen stood as a mountain in
their path because he had foreseen the emerging danger which resulted in
forming a historic movement of Afghan people. And he surfaced as an
influential leader on the national as well as global level.
This is what makes us say that Ameer ul Mumineen was the successor of the
glories of Afghan history.
