In 1973 he was admitted to Khwaja Chasht boy’s school, has studied up to Grade 10, but quit in 1983 to join the mujaheddin and fight against the Soviet Union. Mujahid soon got a promotion. After the death of his bother, commander Hazar Gul, he was appointed a district commander of Hizb-e-Islami, led by Gulbaddin Hekmatyar.

Al Haj Allah Gul Mujahid Mujahed stood for a Wolesi Jirga 2010 Election Seat in Kabul Province. He bagged a seat and got 14 most votes in Kabul Province.

He is a member of the Saba [Parliamentary] bloc which is led by Almas Zahid and was established during the current term (2011) of the Wolesi Jirga. It has 38 members.

He has business and real estate interests in Deh Sabz, and is known in the area as an influential businessman. He is now a rich man. By his account, he has three different sources of income besides his Wolesi Jirga salary, including the import of goods from China, five brick-producing kilns and a fuel station. He declined to say how much money he makes. The MP owns an office and a guesthouse on 1.5 acres of land near Pul-i-Charkh bazaar in eastern Kabul. His guesthouse has two 15-metre long rooms. One has couches inside and is suited to modern tastes, while the second room is furnished more traditionally, with only mattresses. He uses the second room to host people from the villages. People visit him at the guest house, where he stays every Thursday and Friday. He says his daily expenses for operating the house and guest house are about 100,000 afghanis per day. Up to 70 kilograms of rice are cooked there daily.

Nearly 100 people staged a peaceful demonstration in front of the Wolesi Jirga, blaming MP Allah Gul Mujahid for seizing 100 acres of their land in the Shanan Qala area of the district. They had lodged a complaint with the departments, but no one listened to them because Mujahid had a private armed group, one of the demonstrators, Nawroz, told Pajhwok Afghan News. They had also moved the assembly's Complaints Commission, where Mujahid is a member, he said, regretting the issue was yet to be addressed.(20111026)

The MP, who is married and has five sons and two daughters, said that his three brothers have their own businesses and live in the same building as he does.

When asked to list his achievements as an MP, Mujahid said he had helped get 57 prisoners released from government jails. “The people passed years in jails, but were freed with my assistance before completing their prison terms. Many of those released inmates were political prisoners,” he said without supplying any names.
