Trials of Peaceful Preachers Reflects the Degree of War with Islam

On July 3, 2017, the North Caucasian Military Court of Russia sentenced Hiramagomedov Muhammad to 9 years in prison.


Today in Russia, more than 210 Muslims are in prison for participating in Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT) party. Only over the past 7 months, more than 80 people have been arrested. And most of the last sentences start from 15 years of imprisonment.

Muhammad occupies a special place in the list of these shabab. He is a very educated, erudite, open, responsive, and active young Muslim. These qualities are difficult to keep in a region where Muslims are daily abducted, and later they are found dead with the traces of torture. Here, entire areas are closed for “counter-terrorist” operations. In these military operations and without trial, dozens of Muslims of this region are killed and they justify this by the fight against terror. The Caucasus region is full of military bases and all kinds of special services. And this is happening right now, growing stronger every day.

Our brother took an active part in the fight against this evil. As part of the founders of the “Soyuz spravedlivyh” (“The Union of the Fair”), he organized many peaceful rallies and pickets against the arbitrariness of the security forces who kidnap and murder people. So, in the capital of Dagestan in Makhachkala in 2011, there was a rally that gathered more than 10 thousand of Muslims. All the founders of the “Soyuz spravedlivyh” (“The Union of the Fair”) were imprisoned, and one of them, Gappaev Abdullah, was killed.

In addition, he took part in the organization of the republic holiday of Eid al-Fitr in the central park and other similar events, reviving the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and spreading an atmosphere of peace and good on this land.

Of particular importance is the active participation of Muhammad in the public events dedicated to the problems of the Caucasus region. They were held in Dagestan, Chechnya, Moscow and other regions. He conducted active explanatory work, discussions with writers, journalists, deputies, human rights defenders, people of opposing various ideas, and he explained the projects of violence and the struggle with Islam by the rulers.

The arrest and verdict of the carrier of the Islamic call will never be an ordinary event since the carrier has nothing but his own convictions and words. The trials on the peaceful preachers reflect the degree of war with Islam, with this religion and its followers. And Muslims should correctly assess this policy, confronting it in thoughts and actions.

Today, the Russian authorities are making the most zealous attempts to strangle Islam in all its manifestations and throughout the world. And this struggle is intensifying. They test their weapons on civilians in Sham, support the US in the war in Afghanistan, Libya and Iraq, pump and sell oil in this region. Particularly, they struggle with Islam within its territory violently. Special prisons are built for Muslims inside Russia, and imams, who stood up supporting wearing the hijab at schools, are killed.

Russia is also rampant against Islam in Central Asia, supporting the tyranny of the Karimov-Mirziyoev, Rahmon, Turkmenbashi-Berdymukhamedov, Nazarbayev and Kyrgyz authorities. Most of the strategic anti-Islamic decisions are imposed on the region from Moscow.

Such an open and daring enmity with Islam and its Lord promises these rulers shame in the nearest life, and on the Day of Judgment they will be betrayed to the most brutal punishment. For example, Putin was humiliated in the film of the American filmmaker Stone. The film was shown at the end of Ramadan through the central channels of America and Russia. In that film, Putin boasts of a supposedly special operation of Russian soldiers in Syria against the Islamic revolution. And as it was proved, it was a video shooting of an American special operation in Afghanistan. So, the enemy of Allah was humiliated – he boasted of other people’s sins.

Praise be to the Lord of the worlds Who humiliates and exalts.

May Allah keep the call pure and worthy of victory. Thanks to the courage and piety of such men as Muhammad. May Allah have mercy on the Ummah to establish the righteous Khilafah (Caliphate) in the most powerful way, and may He free all the oppressed.

فَسُبْحَانَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ مَلَكُوتُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ

“So exalted is He in whose hand is the realm of all things, and to Him you will be returned!”
