21/12/17 A mashallah very interesting place i stumbled upon today in the i-net. The Republic of Dagestan, or simply Dagestan, is part of federal Russia, located in the North Caucasus region. Its capital and largest city is Makhachkala (famous for the grand masjid) located at the center of Dagestan on the Caspian Sea coast. the very first n last time i heard about dagestan was in cable tv news few years back when, i believe, dagestan went into secessionist movements which was very quickly put away under mega russian military powers. brothers n sisters in that republic r praying n dreaming for inshallah an independent n better life.
islam never permits subdueing others, n discourages muslims to live under forced rules. let us pray for the caucasus region where there r mashallah few more islamic republics who also feel oppressed under russian federation. inshallah hope that russia will soon come into good senses n grant them the independence they want. this little gesture will give russia the credibility it needs from the islamic ummah. russia shud give serious consideration about rethinking its policies towards islam, now that the communism had been dumped for good.
