The Occupation of Afghanistan


Pity poor Taliqan [a region in Afghanistan]. At that place are treasures of God, but these are not of gold and silver.
(Al-Muttaqi al-Hindi, Al-Burhan fi `Alamat
al-Mahdi Akhir az-l-Zaman, p.59)


There is an indication that Afghanistan will be occupied during the Last Days. The Russian invasion of Afghanistan took place in 1979 (1400, according to the Islamic calendar).

at that place are treasures of God, but these are not of gold and silver

In addition, this hadith draws attention to Afghanistan's material riches. Today, large oil deposits, iron basins, and coal mines that have not been commercially exploited yet have been detected there.

The Soviet army invaded Afghanistan in 1979 and stayed there until 1988. This photograph shows the Soviet army's withdrawal. Also shown are the Afghans who fought the Soviets.

A Der Spiegel story about the Soviet invasion states that the Soviet Unionis willing to pursue economic interests in the region, even if it ends the invasion. At that time, Afghanistan's natural gas reserves were estimated to be 150 billion cubic metres – a great incentive, as do its rich coal, lead, zinc, silver, gold mines, and the world's richest lapis mines.
