Who are the Taliban and how did they come to power in Afghanistan? | Just the FAQs


Taliban means "students" in Pashto, and at one point, leaders of the group were American allies. Here's how the Taliban conquered Afghanistan. RELATED:

WASHINGTON – Taliban fighters marched into Afghanistan's capital city on August 15, signaling a collapse of the Afghan government two decades after the U.S. invaded the country in the "war on terrorism."

The swift fall of the capital city came as the Taliban seized nearly all of Afghanistan, despite the billions of dollars spent by the U.S. and NATO to build up Afghan security forces.

  1. Allah سبحانه وتعالى said,

    إِن يَنصُرْكُمُ اللَّهُ فَلَا غَالِبَ لَكُمْ ۖ وَإِن يَخْذُلْكُمْ فَمَن ذَا الَّذِي يَنصُرُكُم مِّن بَعْدِهِ ۗ وَعَلَى اللَّهِ فَلْيَتَوَكَّلِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ
    If Allah helps you, none can overcome you; and if He forsakes you, who is there after Him that can help you? And in Allah (Alone) let believers put their trust. [Ãal-‘Imraan 3:160]

    إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا يُنفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ لِيَصُدُّوا عَن سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ۚ فَسَيُنفِقُونَهَا ثُمَّ تَكُونُ عَلَيْهِمْ حَسْرَةً ثُمَّ يُغْلَبُونَ ۗ وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِلَىٰ جَهَنَّمَ يُحْشَرُونَ
    Verily, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to hinder (others) from the Path of Allah, and so will they continue to spend it; but in the end it will become an anguish for them. Then they will be overcome. And those who disbelieve will be gathered unto Jahannam (Hell-Fire). [Al-Anfaal 8:36]

    وَكُلُّ شَيْءٍ عِندَهُ بِمِقْدَارٍ
    Everything with Him is in (due) measure. [Ar-Ra’d 13:8]

    لِيَقْطَعَ طَرَفًا مِّنَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا أَوْ يَكْبِتَهُمْ فَيَنقَلِبُوا خَائِبِينَ
    That He might cut off a part of those who disbelieve, or expose them to infamy, so that they retire frustrated. [Ãal-‘Imraan 3:127]

    1. Who’s Allah? I believe in God Almighty, omnipotent, omniscience, omnipresent -,The God who created heavens and earth! The Devine supremacy! The Father of Jesus Christ! The Alpha and the Omega! The Beginning and the End! That’s who God is.

    2. @Be Strong & Courageous Allah is the Creator of this world. No one is equal to Allah. And Allah does not beget humans. The God of our father, Abraham عليه السلام does not beget children or becomes a man. You took that from greek demigods.

    3. @Be Strong & Courageous
      God doesn’t have a son
      we worship God alone we don’t worship a human
      how can god be 2 in one or 3 in one?

    4. @Be Strong & Courageous we believe in god too Allah mean God but in the Arabic language, you call him the father we call him Allah even Arabian Christians call him Allah we also believe in Jesus but not the son of God we believe in him as a prophet of God so basically Quran is the words of God or the father as you call him download Quran app on your phone and read 🙂

    1. Soooo we should have stayed and wasted more money?? The whole plan was for Afghans to keep their county safe…they couldn’t do it. So they lost, we didn’t.

    1. @A Z These are not atheists, their ideology is their religion. It is just as strong as any religion and just as maniacal. I am a polytheist…

    2. @Herr Wahnsinn yes I think you are right!! It really is a religion, and comes with all the potential destruction people can cause with any other belief system.

  2. Violent protests and rage in Nepal against USA. Fatema Sumar Global VP of MCC was welcomed in Nepal with black placards, protests and chants of war against USA. US News Media seems unaware of the dangerous situation in Nepal against USA. Nepal is ready to go into war with USA.

  3. After attending Trump University the Taliban were well prepared to attack their own country and prevail; I understand that they agreed to let Trump build 2 hotels in Kabul for getting their leader out of a Pakistani jail and for tying the hands of the Afghan government while they captured the country; a win win for all.

  4. It’s biblical! It goes back to the curse placed on this race! It’s not recent news; it’s historical!

    1. Your bible is nothing but a book full of corruption so your argument is baseless. There’s no curse on any race, that’s just pure racism. And by the way the “curse” was placed on ham. The taliban are descendants of Japheth so you don’t even know what you’re talking about. Filthy idol worshiper. Go bow down to a statue of your man god Jesus.

  5. I think Americans have made it pretty clear across the board that they know very little about the Taliban. Who does USA Today think they’re fooling, trying to teach anyone about Taliban or Afghanistan?

  6. The Taliban actually detained Osama bin Laden for 45days, requesting evidence of his involvement in 9/11 to first, try him under Islamic law internally and 2nd, to extradite to 3rd Country for trial.
    But the US didn’t even bothered to follow international law by providing evidence for extradition. Instead, the US bombed and invaded the country without giving any solid proof of Osama’s involvement, even until today there is no solid proof to show, except the fake video with the gold ring.
