“I saw Usama bin Laden (رحمه الله)in the midst of severe fighting”- Musa al Qarni once said.
“He was not the type of man to flee and withdraw. There were battles when Osama was left alone with only two or three mujahideen. They used to stand and fight to cover the entire mujahideen force’s withdrawal. He would withdraw only when this was accomplished.”
An eyewitness to the battle of Jaji , Darraz narrates : “ I was near him in the battle, many months, and he was really brave. That’s why he got respect from Afghans and Arabs”
