As of early 2003, Azmarai was a courier between al-Qa’ida cells in Pakistan and the Persian Gulf and, as of late 2002, was a courier for senior al-Qa’ida operational planner Khalid Shaykh Muhammad.
His facilitation duties on behalf of al-Qa’ida have also included providing logistical support to al-Qa’ida members and their families. As of 2011, Azmarai assisted al-Qa’ida’s administrative manager with managing the care of important al-Qa’ida members’ families, including facilitating their finances, housing, and medical care.
In 1999, he assisted in making logistical arrangements for al-Qa’ida members and their families in Karachi, Pakistan. Azmarai was also specifically responsible for providing support to members of now-deceased al-Qa’ida leader Osama bin Laden’s family.
Bin Laden’s son-in-law selected Azmarai in late 1999 to look after bin Laden’s family and, in mid-2000, Azmarai began working directly for bin Laden’s family, facilitating their travel, lodging, and medical needs. From late 2001 through early 2002, Azmarai was responsible for bin Laden’s family members in Karachi. In mid-2002, Azmarai worked for bin Laden’s son, now-deceased Saad bin Laden.
