In the series of sacrifices in the cause to Allah, the governor of the Islamic Emirate for Farah province, the martyr Mullah Fazlal Rahman (Mullah Mashar Akhund) attained the lofty status of martyrdom last night in a cowardly airstrike of American invaders, surely to Allah we belong and to Him shall we return.
Allah (SwT) says:
الله تعالی فرمايي: مِّنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّـهَ عَلَيْهِ فَمِنْهُم مَّن قَضَى نَحْبَهُ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَنتَظِرُ وَمَا بَدَّلُوا تَبْدِيلًا ﴿٢٣﴾ الاحزاب
Among the believers are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah [have gone out for Jihad and turned not their backs to the disbelievers], of them some have fulfilled their obligation [been martyred] and some are waiting, but they have never changed in the least. (Al-Ahzab : 23)
Mullah Fazal Rahman was one of the most astute, courageous and valorous leaders of the Islamic Emirate who bore great and unforgettable hardships for the cause of Allah.
Martyrdom is an honor for us. The great foundation of the Islamic Emirate is built upon the blood of such devout and heroic martyrs and it shall continue to be irrigated with their blood, Allah willing.
We extend our heartfelt condolences about the martyrdom of Mullah Fazal Rahman (Mullah Mashar Akhund) to our nation, Mujahidin of Farah province and all his close friends, relatives and family members.
With the blessing of such selfless sacrifices Allah (SwT) shall cleanse Afghanistan from occupation, eliminate corruption and establish Islamic governance upon methodology of the Prophethood.
The Islamic Emirate reminds the cowardly enemy that martyrdom in the path of Allah is one of the greatest aspiration in the lives for every senior and junior member of the Emirate. We shall not tire of sacrificing and martyrdom shall not hinder us from our righteous path. Rather our aspirations shall become even more precious and we shall continue to strive in our Jihad with an even greater fervor and perseverance, Allah willing.
Your calculation of benefiting or achieving your objectives through the martyrdom of our leaders is wrong. The experience of the past years has proven that the martyrdom of our leaders has failed to weaken our Jihadic ranks. On the contrary, it has become a reason for further divine help from Allah and strengthening our our Jihadi zeal and morale.
