Imam Shamil

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.

 

The last path of the great Imam Shamil

143 years has passed since the greatest scholar of our time, the defender and support of religion, the freedom fighter of the Caucasian mountaineers, the Sheikh of the Naqshbandi tariqat, the great Imam of Chechnya and Dagestan Sheikh Shamil left this perishable world.
 
In Arabic, his name sounds like Shamwil, and the Imam himself loved to be called like that. In old manuscripts, the name of the Imam is also written as Shamwil.
 
 

Islam's Tolerance in a Multi-Confessional Society

The attitude of Islam to representatives of other religions or the tolerance of Islam is one of the most important topics of our time. It is especially relevant for Russia, where people living together, practicing different religions.

Religion is a system of divine principles that call people to do good according to their own will. Among religious principles one can always find such foundations that guarantee a person both spiritual and material development, and consequently, create prerequisites for both earthly happiness and happiness in Eternal life.

Heroes of jihad about terrorist attacks and explosions

As an answer to the fake information about the organizers of the 2017 terrorist act in the St. Petersburg metro, who allegedly called themselves "Imam Shamil's battalion," we would like to quote an episode from the life of the great Imam and another contemporary of his, the national hero of Algeria, who raised the banner of the liberation struggle, Emir Abd el-Kader ibn Muhyiddin al-Jazairi.
