Personalities in Islam

The Great Shamil, Imam of Daghestan and Chechnya, Shaykh of Naqshbandi tariqah.

There is a hadith which says that worthy people can be appreciated only by worthy ones. They say, when we mention pious people Allah grants us His blessings. So, hoping for Allah’s blessings, we are going to say few words about Imam Shamil.

Unfortunately, dear brothers, there are those among us who condemn, blame Imam Shamil, say untrue words about him. For example, some say that imam and his murids fought for the mundane wealth. Others say that Imam fought for both glory and power, or say he was a cruel merciless man. Some assert the Imam surrendered and so was taken captive and that was his mistake because he had to fight till the victory.
