God's Party of Afghanistan is one of the most important Shiite Jehadi groups of Afghanistan in south-west region of the country. The party at first was called "God's Front", established by Shahid Ali Pahlavan, Khalil Habibi, Haji Morteza, Qulam Rasul Hashemi, Khalil Sheikh Zadeh and …a lot of efforts were made for its expansion. God's Party of Afghanistan officially announced its existence by publishing a declaration on 14/7/1359 and achieved a strong position in Herat. Primary members of the party included Shahid Ali Pahlavan, Khalil Habibi, Haji Morteza, Qulam Rasul Hashemi, Qari Ahmad Ali Qur Darvazi, Khalil Sheikh Zadeh, Mostafa Farahi, Mohammad Ali Rajai, Shahid Haji Naroz, Sayyid Baqer Zarqar, Abdul Khaleq, Haji Qulam Ali Entezari and Qulam Mahbob known as Kateb Banai. Integrated organization was did not exist in the party, since making decisions was depended on Qari Ahmad which is probably one of the reasons separations from  God's Party of Afghanistan. The first people who separated from the party were Sheikh Zadeh, Rajai and Haj Kazem Atazadeh and joined Islamic Society of Afghanistan under the supervision of Basir. Shahid Haji Naroz separated twice, once in 1363 but returned and then in 1366, he was martyred on 24 Hut of the same year. In 1365, Kateb and Hashemi left the party, the biggest separation took place in 1367, when a great number of military commanders, clerics and some responsible quitted the party. Despite seven separations from the party, it developed in Nimruz, Farah, Uruzgan, Fariab, and even Bamian and become a member of Islamic Coalition Council of Afghanistan, in the third round of election of Islamic Coalition Council of Afghanistan, Qari Ahamd was appointed as the spokesman.
On 15/7/1371, God's Party of Afghanistan united with Islamic Unity Party of Afghanistan and Qari Ahamd was chosen as the head of south-west region of this party. The joint of God's party to Islamic Unity Party was announced via a ceremony in Herat on Monday (21/7/1371), publishing a declaration to ask all classes of people and Islamic movements of the country to maintain their unity and integrity in order to ensure security and respect the martyrs of Islamic revolution. The context of the declaration there follows: "After various sessions in Tehran and Mashhad and in particular after last week's historical meeting, based on religious and divine duties for the purpose of fortifying the pillars of unification and at the process of establishment of an Islamic government, God's party has officially attached Islamic Unity Party of Afghanistan and begins its activities in the direction of this organization's objectives." Following the division of Islamic Unity into two wings of Akbari and Mazari, Qari Ahmad announced his impartiality at first, subsequently, he revived God's party in 1374, and the new deciding council of God's party composed of 21 members was formed in 1377.Qari Ahmad Ali, Shirzad Hashemi, Mohammad Taher Zamani, Hayatollah Heidarian, Engineer Hasani, Babo Abdulkhaleq Gebreilli, Sayyid Amir Shah Naseri, Abdulkarim Ehsani, Toran Nazari, Sayyid Kazem Musavi, Sayyid Baqer Shah, Hanif Baba Khan, Qurban Zadeh and Sayyid Zaher were the prominent members of this council. At the time, the responsibility of deciding council was on Shirzad Hashemi, yet, God's party has connected with Qari's name during Jehad period and his credibility and historical role in holy Jehad of Afghanistan people and in ancient Herat can not be ignored.
