In April, 1988 the Soviets sign a treaty to leave Afghanistan, but Fariba is not pleased. She feels that the current president is just a Soviet pawn. The U.S.S.R. collapses. President Najibullah attempts to appear to be a faithful Muslim and tries to make an agreement with the Mujahideen. Fariba prays for the success of the Mujahideen. Najibullah ultimately surrenders and the communist regime and jihad end. Afghanistan becomes the Islamic State of Afghanistan overseen by a Jihad Council which is later to be replaced by other councils and ultimately by elections. The Mujahideen members come to Kabul.
