OPINION: Why Salafis oppose Taliban?


by Shaykh Abdul-Hameed Al-Hajouri

What is clear from the history of Taliban’s creation, and from its present state is that it was created like ISIS was created.

Many of the brothers are asking me about the Taliban movement. The Taliban movement even though it maintains itself to be from Ahlus-Sunnah Wal Jamaah*. But what is correct is that they are not from Ahlus-Sunnah Wal-Jamaah. Rather it is Sufi Naqshbandi movement and in its fiqh it is upon the Hanafi methodology which is based upon opinion.

And it is a movement that hates Ahlus-Sunnah Wal-Jamaah and calls them Wahabiyah.

As for what pertains to the movements restriction on some of the grave worshipping rituals its intent is, as they clarified in their publications. As mentioned in their publications the reason is that, there won’t be an opening for the Salafis to criticize the movement.

And our Shaykh Muqbil may God have mercy upon him, spoke about the movement long ago when it began.

He (Shaykh Muqbil) said: “It is a movement that has been funded but we don’t know from what direction but it will become clear with the time who is funding it!”

And he Shaykh Muqbil was asked about its methodology. And he said: “It’s a movement (Taliban) that hate Ahlus-Sunnah and they call them Wahabis”. Or words to that effect! And he has other sayings in regards to them!

And what is clear from the history of Taliban’s creation, and from its present state is that it was created like ISIS was created.

The Americans (Obama-administration) created ISIS in the area of Iraq and Syria for an evil purpose. In which they were able to enter upon the Muslims. To empower Iranian-Shittes upon many of the lands of the Sunnis in Iraq and Syria, with the claim of fighting ISIS. And ISIS is a misguided sect.

The warnings from Ahlus-Sunnah are present but in reality it’s a movement created by the CIA. The CIA prepared its affairs for them and likewise for the Taliban movement. When they were created in Afghanistan many years ago. Their presence was an entrance for America to attack Afghanistan, with the claim of fighting the Taliban.

And a few days ago a dialogue between America (Biden-administration) and the Taliban occurred in Qatar. Resulting in no restriction in the Taliban Movement taking control of Afghanistan but it must abstain from violence. A theatrical play, a clear charade.

These days the Americans are requesting their subjects to leave Afghanistan.

And today it began what we saw from reports the burning of the secret agreements in the American embassy, like what they did in Sanaa, Yemen. Before the Houthis entered Sanaa they emptied their embassy. And surrendered it to the Houthi.

Between America (Democrats) and the Iranian-Shiites is an old friendship. They utilize the Shiites to war with what are known as the Sunni countries. They are the ones who created Al-Qaeda, ISIS, the groups of corruption and other than them. And my advice is not to be fooled by this Taliban movement.

Also the path Taliban makes the Khurooj (rebellion) of the rulers. And it’s a Takfeeri movement. This is clear because their claim that whoever raises the Afghanistan flag is a Kaafir. And they make his blood, wealth and honor permissible. This is a warning for Ahlus-Sunnah so they are not fooled by appearances and displays whilst they neglect the reports.

I was the first to warn about ISIS. And if it wasn’t the first than I was from the first who warned about them from Ahlus-Sunnah in the world.

I was in Sri Lanka those days, and many people became excited with ISIS because they attacked Shiites. I told them they will not enter Baghdad, and it’s all a trick. And indeed they didn’t enter Baghdad. I told them they are a Takfeeri Khawarjee group, and the people said what is your proof? I told them my proof is what Al Baghdadi explicitly proclaimed to make Hijrah(migration) to him. Meaning the rest of the Muslim countries are not lands of Islam. He specifies to make Hijrah from them. Also from their explicit proclamations of hatred of the land of the two Sacred Mosques (Saudi Arabia).

All praise due to God the people of Sunnah that these falsehoods and affairs don’t enter upon them.

And the religion of God is preserved. And God will preserve it. Whatever the plotters plan or anticipate.

Look at what happened before! Iran collaborated with US-coalition to enter Afghanistan, and now Iran is in agreement with the Taliban movement. How is that? This is proof that the one who controls them and passes orders is one.

*Ahl al-Sunnah Wal Jamaah are those who adhere to the Prophet Mohammed’s Sunnah and who unite upon it, not turning to anything else, whether that be in matters of belief or matters of actions which are subject to shariah rulings. Hence they are called Ahl al-Sunnah because they adhere to it (the Sunnah), and they called Ahl al-Jamaa’ah because they are united in following it. 

Shaykh Abdul-Hameed Hajouri is a Yemeni Salafi Scholar who had his secondary education in Yemen’s Hudaydah city. He then completed his university education in Geography and Chemistry. He later completed his Islamic studies under the famous Shaykh Late. Muqbil bin Hadee al-Wade in Darul-Hadeeth Dammaaj-Yemen.
