Afghanistan is being robbed!
Just like Bangladesh who has gas, Afghanistan a country least likely to have anything is sitting on trillion dollar reserves of oil, gold, ore, copper, lithium, and other minerals. Allah (swt) has blessed our lands with so much riches and yet we see misery and destruction. With all this potential Afghans will see a few possible scenarios play out:
1. Afghans will fight among themselves and the powerful will corrupt and oppress the weak.
2. The vultures like China, USA, and Europe will come in and devour the minerals by giving the normal Afghans next to nothing.
3. Those in power will fatten their pockets and those around them.
4. Under the Khilafah government the reserves of minerals will be public property. Neither the state nor individuals can usurp its benefit for themselves. Instead Islam ensures that the entire public benefits from the wealth.
The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:
“The Muslims are partners in three things, waters, feeding pastures and fire” (Ahmad)
Revenue from the mining of minerals and the extracion of fossil fuels will be another source of revenue for the Khilafah to use.
So, the Khilafah will ensure that the public benefit from energy resources, providing cheap energy to fuel agriculture and industry and creating affordable domestic rates for the masses.
