The history of Afghanistan is full of heroism of our great leaders who have fought for the cause of Islam and one of them is the legendary Sheikh Jalaluddin Haqqani (may Allah have mercy on him). Sheikh Jalaluddin Haqqani was the Imam Shamil of our age. The life and struggles of Sheikh Jalaluddin Haqqani are exemplary for all the those involved in the Jihadi arena of Afghanistan.
From fighting the Soviets and defeating them to standing firm against the American crusaders and bringing them to their knees until the moment of the departure of his soul from this world, Sheikh Jalaluddin Haqqani showed us how to never be deterred by anything in the path of Jihad.
Shiekh Jalaluddin Haqqani was a teacher, mentor, leader and a battlefield commander who has left thousands of staunch followers trained by him to raise the banner of Islam against all the tyrannical forces.
The righteousness of Sheikh Jalaluddin Haqqani is even acknowledged by his enemies who have described him as Goodness Personified. Sheikh Jalaluddin Haqqani has given every sacrifice imaginable for Islam – from fighting in the battlefield and spilling his own blood to sacrificing four of his own sons and more than twelve family members – he has shown to the enemies of Islam and Afghanistan that the leaders of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan fight on the frontlines unlike the heads of the corrupt regimes in Afghanistan whose families reside in western capitals as they take advantage of ignorant Afghans for their self serving agendas and nefarious designs.
When the American crusaders invaded Afghanistan and the puppet Hamid Karzai was installed, an offer was made to Sheikh Jalaluddin Haqqani to become the overall head for the Southern Provinces of Afghanistan but the reply of Sheikh Jalaluddin Haqqani was:
“I consider it much better to live in the mountains for the defense of Afghanistan and fight the invaders than accept the offers of invaders and their stooges of holding high positions in their government. The invasion of Afghanistan by the American invaders has snatched our sovereignty from us and I will fight the invaders until the achievement of complete independence and sovereignty of our homeland”.
While remembering Sheikh Jalaluddin Haqqani (may Allah mercy on him) we reiterate this to the enemies of Islam and Afghanistan that our heroes like Sheikh Jalaluddin Haqqani have left us lessons of sacrifice and struggle in inheritance and the Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan will continue his mission until their last breath.
