Part 1

There are about 20 million indigenous Muslims living in the Russian Federation where the total population is over 140 million (about 15 percent of the total population). Unlike other Muslim minorities in Europe, Russian Muslims are not foreign immigrants. They are native citizens of the country in which they live in.


The Dignity of Islam's Social Etiquette

By: Ahmad Al-Batili

Cordially making room for newcomers in a gathering is a rule of refined conduct taught and encouraged by the Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu alayhe wa sallam.

Allah, subhanahu wa ta'ala, says: "O you who have believed, when you are told, 'Make room [for one another]' in gatherings, then make room; Allah will make room for you. And when you are told: 'Arise!' then arise. Allah will raise those who have believed among you and those who were given knowledge by degrees. And Allah is acquainted with what you do" [58:11].


The Qur'an

The Qur'an by Christine Huda Dodge

The holy text of Islam is called the Qur'an (also spelled Koran). The word Qur'an comes from the Arabic word iqra (to read), and is a noun that literally means “the Reading.” Revealed verse by verse to Muhammad over a period of twenty-three years, the Qur'an is the center of Muslim life. The Qur'an was revealed in the Arabic language and is preserved in its original form, although translations of the meaning have been done into other languages. Through stories and parables, direct instructions and warnings, the Qur'an gives a universal message of belief in One God and in the guidance He has sent through time.

Islam and orthodox Christianity

Theological grounds of good neighborliness

The necessity of interfaith peace-building is discussed a lot in Russia. People speak of it on the state’s top-level. Heads of the largest religious organizations point to the topic. Actually it is no need to dispute about this; this is kind of a perfect matter-of-fact. And when officials hold forums where the first persons take part, the first persons say nice and right things to one another.


Why is Salah/Prayer so Important?

By Muhammadrasul Saaduev : Imam of Central Jum`ah Mosque | Makhachkala | 02 Sept 2011

The Man who Broke the Connection with the Creator is Unreliable.

There is a connection between each of us and the Creator. This is the connection that determines our destiny, our success in this world, our well-being, both in this world and in the Eternal one. The break of this connection will bring chaos into society; man will regress, commit crime and pass the limits set by Allah.

What is the connection and how to find it? It is through Salah, prescribed by the Almighty. If this connection is strong, infallible, the slave is always with his Creator. He will do well both in this world and in the Eternal life. And he will be rescued from adversity and misery in this world and from the punishment on the Judgment Day.


The Root of Islam

By Muhammadrasul Saaduev, Imam of Central Jum`ah Mosque | Makhachkala | 09 Sept 2011

We can compare Islam, with which Allah lifted us, with a very strong tree with deep roots, strong trunk, branches and fruit. The root of this tree is “Al-'Ubudiyyah”, being a true slave of Allah, a feeling that overwhelms the heart of a Mu’min (a true believer).


How to unite the Islamic Ummah??

The Fight Against Islam Dates Back to the Beginning of the Prophetic Mission of Muhammad (PBUH).

The Islamic community throughout the world faces challenges, increasing daily and taking various shapes. They can be an economic blockade, an intervention into the ideology of Muslims, and many other problems, which can take very long to discuss.

What is the purpose of this struggle against Islam? It is to take Muslims’ confession from them by weakening the Muslim community, influencing the ideology of Muslims, and separating Muslims from the values of Islam.


The trials and tribulations of the children of Adam

Why Is It Useful to Appeal to Allah?

By divine predestination, man comes into this world being weak, and returns as weak to the Almighty, despite the advantages that Allah has given him. The Creator made him the apex of creation and put him in charge of all other creations.

Despite such a great honor, man is still a weak creature. The Almighty intended him so. Allah says in the Qur'an: “Allah intends to make things easy on you. And man has been created weak.” In another Ayah Allah says: “O ye men! It is ye that have need of Allah: but Allah is the One Free of all wants, worthy of all praise.
