NOTE: After the controversy over who was the Emir of the Caucasus Emirate (see here, here, and here) it looks like Dokku Umarov has shored up support within the ranks since below (unedited) is a message by the Dagestan Front of the Armed Forces of the Caucasus Emirate giving endorsement to Umarov as the Emir.
Praise be to Allah the Lord of the worlds!
Praise be to Allah, who favored us with Jihad, giving us an opportunity to win the highest degree of Paradise of Allah the Firdaus!
Peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah Muhammad (pbuh), his family, companions and all those who followed this path until the Day of Judgment, and then:
Peace be unto you and so may the mercy of Allah and His blessings!
Peace and prosperity of Allah to al Muslim brothers in the Caucasus and beyond!
Dear brothers and sisters, I felt it necessary to make some additions to what has been said by some of our brothers, about the actions that go beyond the Sharia.
The first statement of the CE Emir Abu Usman (AKA Dokku Umarov) is clearly made under pressure from those who have previously accused him of that he allegedly firmly holding the power of Emir. In the video clip being discussed among the brethren, also obvious that he addressing to the Caucasian Emirs for their opinion how they perceive such a decision (?).
Dokku Abu Uaman did not resign from the post of Emir of the Caucasus Emirate but he delivered his proposal to resign, and then only in the case if other Emirs of provinces of the Caucasus Emirate support this decision.
Mujahideen of the all provinces have already expressed their attitude to this proposal with the words of supreme judge of the Caucasus Emirate Seyfullah, pointing to the insolvency of the very reasons for the resignation for health reasons: “We need your experience and your head!”.
Abu Usman, and is now also ready to resign, but only in the case if such a wish expressed by the Emirs of other provinces of the Caucasus Emirate. And as the qadi, supreme judge, of the Caucasus Emirate Seyfullah said and has been confirmed by other Emirs of CE Provinces, such questions concerning the role of the CE Emir is decided by the Shura or Council of the Caucasus Emirate, but not by the Shura of a single province.
And if some of the mujahedeen in the provicnes of Nokhchicho (AKA Chechnya / Ichkeria) believe that they have a right to decide the status of the Emir of the Caucasus Emirate only on the grounds that he is their own congener, and also because the Jihad started in Nokhchicho, then they are clearly mistaken.
The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said:
He who calls to asabiyya (nationalism) is not from us, he who fights for asabiyya is not from us, and he who shows his anger because of asabiyya is not from us”.
The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said:
“Indeed, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a black has no superiority over white, nor a white has any superiority over black, except by piety”.
This hadith says that no one has any superiority over others, we are all equal before Allah.
I fought beside Aslambek in the first war, and we have brothers with us fought together with him in the second war in the detachment of Emir Khattab (may Allah have mercy on him) and, as everyone knows, this detachment was consisted of representatives of many nations of the Caucasus, and its backbone was consisted of Dagestanis.
Emir Rabbani (may Allah have mercy on him), which fought 7 years in the provinces of Nokhchicho, said that over the years, he personally counted up to a thousand Dagestanis who martyred, Insha’Allah, in Chechnya. They fought to the death with infidels, defending their fellow Muslims in Chechnya.
Praise be to Allah, today the number of Mujahideen in Dagestan Province is not less than the number of Mujahideen in the Province of Nokhchicho. And the combat actions are most active outside the Nokhchicho, and for this reason, the main forces of Russian infidels, are directed to the provinces of Dagestan, Ghalghaycho, Kabarda, Balkaria and Karachai. Allah alone knows how much strength we have managed to put off from our brothers in the province of Nokhchicho.
We, the Mujahideen of Shamilkala sector of the Armed Forces of the Caucasus reiterate: Mujahideen of Dagestan, following the Sharia of Allah, are still faithful to the oath given by us to the Caucasus Emirate Emir Dokku Abu Usman.
Victory or Paradise!
