Press Release: Russia Continues to Destroy the Houses of Allah

Press Release
Russia Continues to Destroy the Houses of Allah

On 3rd May 2015, in the district of Urengoy, the authorities demolished the largest house of Allah – Masjid Noor Islam – which is visited by more than 1500 Muslims in the city of Yamal of Siberia. We share the anger and pain with our brothers and sisters that afflicted them as a result of this brutal barbaric act, and we supplicate to Allah to take revenge on all who participated in this criminal act, for there is no barrier between the supplication of the oppressed and Allah.

We also call on Muslims to urge into work to establish the Khilafah Rashidah on the method of the Prophethood, and we ask Allah to hasten its establishment and the pledging of allegiance to a just Khaleefah to protect Muslims and their holy places. This is because the persecution of Muslims at the hands of these impure, in Russia, America, Syria and other countries in the world, is due to the absence of the just Imam, for the power of the Muslims lies in the application of the Shariah of Allah, which is derived from the Qur’an and Sunnah.

As long as the Muslims stay without Khilafah to unite them, and without a just Commander like Omar al-Farooq, and Salahuddin, may Allah be pleased with them, our situation of humiliation and disgrace will remain as it is now. Therefore, we call on all the sincere workers in the Islamic field of the sons of this Ummah to stand against all the regime’s attempts to obliterate the Islamic identity, and to halt all policies directed against Islam in this country. Since, the demolishing of Masjid Noor Islam in Yamal was not an individual act of the local Government – although it blesses it – rather it is the hostility and hatred of Islam at the highest official levels in the Russian Federation, and a step to crackdown on the districts of Muslims. Consequently, Muslims in Moscow, Leningrad, Stavropol, and other cities, face problems and obstacles in taking licenses to build mosques, and at the same time the Russian Supreme Court rules to ban the Hijab in schools.

It is the sincerely of the Muslims in Russia towards their Deen and their Holy places, and the bravery of the religious forces and the influencers, and their firm standing in the face of the regime’s attempts and its campaigns against Islam and the Holy places, is what may stop the onslaught against Muslims, till Allah authorizes the establishment of the Islamic State and the inauguration of a just Khaleefah on the method of the Prophet (saw) to defend the sanctities.

We call upon all Muslims to multiply their efforts in order to spread and install Islam in Russia, so that we receive the satisfaction of the Almighty, and to be a blow to the enemies of this precious Ummah. Allah Almighty says:

وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّن مَّنَعَ مَسَاجِدَ اللّهِ أَن يُذْكَرَ فِيهَا اسْمُهُ وَسَعَى فِي خَرَابِهَا
“And who are more unjust than those who prevent the name of Allah from being mentioned in His mosques and strive toward their destruction.” [Al-Baqara: 114]
