The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (Pashto: د افغانستان اسلامي امارات, Da Afghanistan Islami Amarat), was founded in 1995 when the Taliban began their rule of Afghanistan and ended with their fall from power in 2001.

Even at the peak of their influence, the Taliban never controlled the entire area of Afghanistan, as about 10% of the country in the northeast was held by rebels and Herat and Nimurz were guarded by Iran.

Those who resisted were punished instantly, because the Taliban sought to impose a strickt interpretation of Islamic Sharia law. Women were banned from jobs, girls forbidden to attend schools or universities, banning kites, banning music, all men had have big, bushy beards; banning photos or drawings of people, banning whistling, banning 'sorcery', boozers were flogged and murders were hung. Communists were systematically eradicated and thieves were punished by amputating one of their hands or feet. Meanwhile, the Taliban managed to nearly eradicate the majority of the opium production by 2001. The people IRA, DRNA and DRA loath this pro-Islamic fudermentalist change.

On September 27, 2009, Herat's leader, Ismail Khan survived a suicide bomber that killed 4 of his bodyguards in Herat, as he was driving to Herat Airport The powerful explosion occurred on the way there. A few days later, the Taliban's spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, claimed responsibility and said the target was Mr Khan.

Mullah Dadullah, Mullah Mohammed Omar and Ali Ahrmed Krecker-Masoud are the 3 powerful leading figures in the emirate.
