Islam in Russia

A mosque. A prison. And a mosque again. The oldest Djuma-mosque in North Caucasus (Derbent)

By Islam Magazine | 21 Jan 2012  

Derbent is one of the oldest towns that has saved its original look till nowadays. One can hardly find another town that has survived so many invasions and destructions, has been an apple of discord and a scene of bloody battles so many times.

The first Islamic activists and the descendants of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had started their charitable mission here.

"A terrible war has contributed to the unity of all Dagestani community..."

Before the Arab invasion Dagestan was divided into many states, where lived various communities who followed their own customs and traditions.

Up to V century A.D. all the territory of Dagestan was the unit of Caucasian Albania, but later its southern part passed under the dominion of the Persians, and the Khazars conquered the other part.

Arab Dagestanis - direct descendants of the Prophet Muhammad

By Hajimurad Radjabov: Assalam| Makhachkala| 2011

Beloved Prophet (PBUH) is the best among people. Islamic history researchers and researchers of Prophet’s genealogy (PBUH) are unanimous that Prophet Muhammad’s family (PBUH) has its roots in the family of Prophet Ismail (PBUH), who is the son of Prophet Ibrahim (PBUH). Hereby is Muhammad (PBUH) an adherent of Ibrahim’s religion (PBUH), a descendant of Ismail (PBUH), an Arab from pure and noble tribe of Quraysh, Hashimite clan.

Following elders teaching

Sermon by Shaykh Said Afandi al-Chirkawi on the ziyarat to Shaykh Shu`ayb Afandi | Bagini | 2005

Dear brothers in faith, we should all give thanks to Allah. It is amazing how many people are here today! Daghestan has been really blessed with Barakah! Never since our ancestors’ times Daghestan has been so religious and advanced in spiritual knowledge and Tariqa.


Murid should behave as murid - Said Afandi al-Chirkawi

Frankly speaking, ‘alims have pleasantly surprised us today to the extent that no more things left to discuss. It is often said that since the creation of Adam (peace be upon him) Allah sent prophets to all nations with the call to Islam. Much has been said about the prophets, as well as those who opposed them and who followed them. It was the way Islam reached the ummah of our Prophet (be peace upon him).


Do not believe a man even if he flies in the sky

A lot of important things have been said here. As for me, I would like to add a little to the earlier said that on the same gathering last year I forewarned all of you not to trust anyone who comes from somewhere outside. Even the one who is flying in the sky! Indeed it is very dangerous.


What is the good of deeds done without fear of Allah? Said Afandi al-Chirkawi

Today our ‘alims have fully covered all subjects. I have hardly anything to add. However, the matter mentioned by Abdulghafuril Muhammad, I heard here for the first time. Till now nobody has ever touched that subject. Verily it is the thing my heart is aching from, which I consider as motto for me, and what I have earlier said about.
