Taliban & Real Islamic Sharia

How to Establish Islamic Khilafat and Shariah?

PIC – Public execution of a woman, known as Zarmina, by the Taliban at the Ghazi Sports Stadium, Kabul, Zarmina was a mother of seven.

Recently in a Facebook fanpage, I have seen a photo which was captioned as “BURMA AWAIT, TALIBANS ARE COMING”. I don’t know in which extent the Admin has posted such article with few knowledge he possed. I don’t know why our little children spreading the distorted image of Jihad and Khilafa. Are they leading you to the enlightment or to the hell fire? What good they have seen in EVIL TALIBANS?


In today’s date suicide bombing is a curse familiar to all and is being used to terrorize people psychologically. Suicide bombing first originated as a political tool in the 1980s,in 1982, radical elements of the Shiite resistance in southern Lebanon joined together in the Bekka Valley to form Hezbollah. After that the trend picked up popularity among many terrorist groups as a way to achieve their means. This act is attributed to Islam by all the terrorist groups that make use of it. The Taliban are perhaps the ones responsible for strongly promoting Islam’s image as a violent religion by associating this vile act of suicide bombing with Islam.

The Taliban term suicide bombing as a form of Jihad which is wrong in its essence, in order to understand this, we must know what the term jihad actually means. Jihad in itself a comprehensive term which has further fourteen divisions, our concern is the physical jihad in the name of which the Taliban term suicide bombing as legal in Islam. The Quran clearly states that “Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors. (2:190)” which means that Muslims are allowed only to wage war or harm those who first try to harm them whereas the Taliban attack innocent people who do not do anything to harm Islam or the Muslims and are in fact Muslims themselves most of the time. The Taliban go against the basic teachings of Islam, Islam clearly prohibits suicides and strongly condemns the act, the Quran states in clear terms “O ye who believe! [Do not] kill yourselves, for truly Allah has been to you Most Merciful. If any do that in rancor and injustice, soon shall We cast him into the Fire…” (Qur’an 4:29-30)” so the Taliban’s stance that suicide bombing is something that is allowed in Islam is wrong because the act of suicide is prohibited. Other than that Islam strongly proscribes killing of any kind, the Quran says: Nor take life – which Allah has made sacred – except for just cause…” (17:33).” So in Islam taking of life is only allowed by ay of justice i.e. death penalty for murder even then Allah urges us to forgive.

Another aspect is that Islam in any form of war has forbidden the killing of women and children, suicide bombers almost always attack areas which are packed with the innocent and mostly women and children, then how do the Taliban justify their act?. So the Taliban commit not only the act of suicide bombing but in itself they commit many other sins as well. One misconception that the world has about Islam is the fact that we Muslims say that Islam is a religion of peace however our history does have accounts of war. Hat the non- Muslims don’t understand is that Islam is a religion of peace but that does not mean that its is a pacifist religion, these are two very different things. In fact being pacifist goes against the essence of peace as enduring wrong doing for a long time is to promote it. Islam does not in any scenario permit the killing of the innocent, waging war in Islam is permitted only in terms of self defense, it’s the religion that does not even allow the killing of insects how can it allow the killing of people?


Islamic women’s rights became a major news topic after the Taliban had taken control of Afghanistan. The numerous restrictions on a woman’s life greatly distorted the actual rights practicing Islamic women enjoy. The actual Islamic rules for the education of women had come into question, as to whether or not women could be educated.

While in power in Afghanistan, the Taliban became notorious internationally for their treatment of women. The stated aim of the Taliban was to create a “secure environments where the chasteness and dignity of women may once again be sacrosanct,”reportedly based on FOOLISH Pashtunwali beliefs OF FOOLISH PASTHUNS AND PATHANS about living in purdah. In a systematic segregation sometimes referred to as gender apartheid, women were not allowed to work, they were not allowed to be educated after the age of eight. In my various Articles the Light of Quran has been brought to Eliminate the Male Chauvinism in order to Nourish the Status of Women in Islam, In an Article Published on my Blog, describes differences in women’s rights from the pre-Islamic period to what the Quran actually teaches, and how extremist groups such as the Taliban violate women’s rights. Views differ greatly within Islamic societies of various regions that are more influenced by culture than the Quran. it is Well Sure, those Pashtunwali Foolish Taliban Mullahs are still living under the Jaahiliath (Ignorance).

The Quran takes a positive position regarding the rights of women and their education. Numerous scriptures equally emphasize the education of both men and women, and recognize education as a means for women to care for themselves and their children.

Women seeking an education were forced to attend underground schools, where they and their teachers risked execution if caught. They were not allowed to be treated by male doctors unless accompanied by a male chaperone, which led to illnesses remaining untreated. They faced public flogging and execution for violations of the Taliban’s laws.

The Taliban rulings regarding public conduct placed severe restrictions on a woman’s freedom of movement and created difficulties for those who could not afford a burqa or didn’t have any mahram. These women faced virtual house arrest.

A woman who was badly beaten by the Taliban for walking the streets alone stated
“my father was killed in battle…I have no husband, no brother, no son. How am I to live if I can’t go out alone?”

The Taliban claimed to recognize their Islamic duty to offer education to both boys and girls, yet a decree was passed that banned girls above the age of 8 from receiving instruction. Maulvi Kalamadin insisted it was only a temporary suspension and that females would return to school and work once facilities and street security were adapted to prevent cross-gender contact. The Taliban wished to have total control of Afghanistan before calling upon an Ulema body to determine the content of a new curriculum to replace the Islamic yet unacceptable Mujahadin version.


Family harmony was badly affected by mental stress, isolation and depression that often accompanied the forced confinement of women. A survey of 160 women concluded that 97 percent showed signs of serious depression and 71 percent reported a decline in their physical well being.

“The right and obligation of every Muslim to education is spelled out by the Prophet Muhammed PBUH in his insistence Muslims must seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave and in his emphasis of divine rewards for those who specifically educate their daughters.”

The same rules that apply to Islamic women as men. A good education to many in the Islamic community is a balance of Islamic teachings and secular information. An Islamic woman taking medical, scientific or business courses must also be well educated in Islamic history, philosophy and religious studies.

What the world needs to understand is that terrorism or Male Chauvinism of any from is not just prompted by religion but also many other conditions such as political, TRIBAL and societal conditions are huge contributors to the motivation of terrorists all around the world. We need to relieve ourselves of this curse on our religion which came to be because we had stopped going to the Quran and Sunnah for guidance. We are given a complete code of conduct in Quran and Sunnah then why do we not take advantage of it? And why do we turn to other people for solutions of our problems when we are to approach only Allah Almighty. The solution to every problem is present in Quran and we need to interpret it rightly as it was intended by Allah. We need to show the world what Islam really is and for that it is important that we first understand it ourselves.

May Allah Save our Ummahs, Specialy our Womenfolks.
