As-Salamu Aleykum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh

Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, the Kavkaz-Jihad blog sends its congratulations and greetings to you, on the occasion of the Eid ul-Adha 1432.
In this occasion, we, once again, enjoin you too not forget your brothers in the way of Allah (swt), who are celebrating this Eid in the woods and mountains of Nokhchicho, Dagestan, Ghalghaycho, Kabarda-Balkaria and Karachay. Do not forget their famillies, subjected to the constant harassment of the Murtadeen and their masters. Do not forget those who celebrate this Eid, under the pains and humiliation of the occupation and oppression from the hands of the infidels. Those who celebrate it, away from their relatives and parents, those who are locked in the infidels’ jails…
Not only in the Islamic Caucasus but also in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Palestine, Somalia, Kashmir, Eastern Turkestan, the Islamic Maghreb, Philippines, Thailand, and elsewhere…

By the grace of Allah (swt), Jihad is expanding its scale in the occupied Caucasus, despite the loss of worthy leaders and Mujahideen. Its idea is spreading far from the Caucasus, in occupied lands such as Bashkortostan, Tatarstan as well as in neighboring Kazakhstan. Generally speaking, Islam is more and  more becoming a force in the East. We pray that this Eid be one of the few still being celebrated under occupation, Insha’Allah, liberation shall come soon.

May Allah (swt) gives the Victory to the Mujahideen everywhere
May He (swt) accepts those who fall on His way, for His Religion and His name.



In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful. Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. Peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, his compagnons and those who followed him until the Day of Jugement.
Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, this day marks the first year of activity of our blog dedicated to the struggle of Caucasian Muslims for Islam and Freedom. By the grace of Allah (swt) we have been able to increase our activity thanks to our contributors, may Allah (swt) reward them. We saw with satisfaction our work being quoted, reposted and translated in other languages. Be assured that we do our best to increase the quality of our work and we ask Allah (swt) to assist us in this task.
The number of our readers is slowly but steadily growing, however, and with honesty, it remains fairly low. But it is not that important. We are realistic, we understand that simple words only can hardly improve the situation or even raise awareness about it. However we hope that, Insha’Allah, our modest contribution helped some people, Muslims or not, to partly understand the nature of the war in the North Caucasus. Or at least, that it helped people to remember this small piece of earth and the blood being shed on it on daily basis…
If Allah (swt) allows it, we plan to expand our activities in the comming year. But this cannot be made without help. So currently, we are especially looking for translators from Chechen to English and from Russian to English. If you are interrested you can contact us at kavkaz.jihad(at) On the other hand, we are open to critics and suggestions to improve the quality of our work. We invite you not only to read but to share your opinions by commenting or by participating in the polls (check on the right of this page).
We Insha’Allah, will continue to work for the benefit of our readers as long as Allah (swt) allows us to do so.
In the end, we ask Allah (swt) to accept our efforts and our work on His path and we ask Him forgiveness for our mistakes.

In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful. Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. Peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, his compagnons and those who followed him until the Day of Jugement.Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, the Kavkaz-Jihad blog sends its congratulations and greetings to you, on the occasion of the Eid ul-Fitr 1432.

In this holy month, the Caucasus has seen many operations, many invaders were killed and wounded as well as their local allies. Many brothers and sisters departed in the path of Allah. Remember them and why they sacrificed the most precious, their lives, for this just cause. Because there is nothing more just in this world than fighting for freedom and Allah’s Law.

In this time of joy and feast, do not forget your brothers and sisters of the Islamic Caucasus and from everywhere in the Ummah. Do not forget those who are giving their lives for the victory of Islam and who repel the oppresions of the Muslims, by their sacrifices and tribulations in the way of Allah (swt).
Do not forget your brothers on the path of Allah (swt), who are celebrating this Eid away from their relatives and parents, in the woods and mountains of Nokhchicho, Dagestan, Ghalghaycho, Kabarda-Balkarya and Karachay. Do not forget their famillies, subjected to the constant harassment of the apostates and their masters. Do not forget those who celebrate this Eid, under the boot of occupation and oppression. And those locked in jails, subjected to tortures, both physical and psychological.
Not only in the Islamic Caucasus but also in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Palestine, Somalia, Kashmir, Eastern Turkestan, the Islamic Maghreb, Philippines, Thailand, and elsewhere…
May Allah (swt) give the Victory of the Mujahideen everywhere
May He (swt) accept those who fall on His way, for His Religion and His name.



NOTE: Via the Kavkaz-Jihād Blog, here a description of the below video:

On March 14, 2011, in Rabbanikala (formerly Kizilyurt), the Mujahideen attacked a lair of apostates (the ‘OVD’ building – police dept. of the city), fired at it and then detonated an explosive device placed in a car, next to it (1). In retaliation, the apostates shot a car with civilians inside, burned their bodies and presented them as ‘militants’. In the video you can see the so-called ‘news’ of the Russian 5th channel (‘5 Kanal’), lying about the ‘interception of the militants, on March 15th, on the Krasnoarmeysk-Shamkhal highway’ and their ‘destruction’, while – in reality – they were safe in their base…

NOTE: The Kavkaz-Jihād Blog explains what this video touches on:

Reprisals against Mujahideen’s relatives, elimination of people involved in anti-Islamic activities, etc. He aslo reaffirmed what has been decided in the Omra №7, about the interdiction to carry out reprisals against relatives of simple policemen, traffic policemen and others, on whose there is no clear informations about their participation in attacks against Mujahideen’s relatives.

UPDATE 2/15 6:35 PM: Here is an English translation of the below video message:

I seek refuge in God from the cursed Satan. In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful!

Verily, all praise is due to God, we praise Him, we seek Him and we ask for His forgiveness and guidance, and we seek refuge in God from the evil of our own selves and from evil consequences of our actions, whom God guides, nobody can misguide, and whom God leaves astray nobody can guide.

I testify there is no God but God, and that Muhammad is the Prophet of God.

And then:

May peace, mercy, and blessings of God be upon you!

Dear Muslim brothers and sisters. Today, I want to address to you with this letter, a video letter. Before I address to you, I would like to ask the Almighty that He makes my words beneficial for Muslim people and beneficial for the Nation of the Prophet (pbuh). I am not getting tired giving praise to God who made me a holy warrior, who made me a Muslim, and I praise Him for putting me in the ranks of holy warriors.

By addressing now to you, I want at least one Muslim to see the truth in the events which occur in this world. After the special operation was carried out on January 24 in Moscow, we heard how all the politicians and clergy accused the people, who did that, of terrorism and, among other things, of being inhuman and barbaric evil doers. But look. This operation was carried out on my orders and, God willing, such special operations will be carried out in the future.

Look at the events which are now developing in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. By what right do they kill our brothers in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Algeria and all over the Muslim world?

Why is the Nation of the Prophet (pbuh) being destroyed today, as much as they like it, with every method they like it and nobody condemns this destruction? But when we carry out an operation, everybody comes down on us and tries to tarnish us and blame us. But why don’t they make assessments for themselves? Why are they trying to make barbarians out of us today? Look how they kill our brothers in every Muslim state, where true Muslims strive for freedom, freedom to profess their religion. Why is the whole world silent when they destroy and kill our brothers and sisters?

And when we answer to something for which we have a right to do, the world immediately pounces on us. Look at the events which are happening in Sudan, where the president (or Emir, I don’t know what he is called) made his first concession many years ago by agreeing not to rule by Sharia and the Sunah of the Prophet (pbuh), he should have known that this was only the first of many forthcoming concessions, and that they would tear him apart with all force. Look how the largest Muslim state is being divided and cut apart today. America and “Israel” are dividing the very part of Sudan which possesses energy resources, where there is oil and gold, where there is oil and gas, and taking it away from Sudan. Why is it that the world looks at these events so calmly and does not react?

Look, if now we are not given the right for freedom, if we are not given the right for profess our faith, under cover of the slogans that our faith is not ancient and our faith is short sighted, that our people are small in numbers, then all the rights belong to numerous peoples and their cultures, rooted in antiquity,

We are not to invent anything new in that case. Russia and America should simply acknowledge that the right to be the masters of the world belongs to China because it has most of the people and the most ancient culture. Therefore, it is necessary to give all the rights to China.

Today, this right given is given to every man, this right is given at birth by the Almighty, and nobody has the right to deprive anyone of this right anywhere in the world. Therefore, we, the holy warriors of Caucasus, are now striving for freedom, which was given to us by the Almighty, we are striving to make our Caucasus free, we are striving for human rights to be proclaimed in Caucasus, for the right for life because life is given by the Almighty and nobody has a right to deprive anyone of life but only under the right, under the law of God.

We want that Caucasus today has the right for freedom, the right for worship, the right for (political) convictions, and the right for justice, because a court can only be the court from God, according to the Sharia, the right for defending honor and dignity, the right for an asylum for the persecuted, the right for defending property.

I want to ask those who listen to me today, those who view me now: where are these laws observed today by these infidel states that occupy and oppress the peoples who have a right to be free in this world? Where are these states? Is it America, or “Israel”, or Russia, or China? Where are these rights respected? Nowhere! Nowhere! They are only declared on a sheet of paper. Their laws are used as a truncheon to beat you on your head wherever it is possible for them and wherever there is no resistance.

Look at the events which are happening in Tunisia, Algeria and many other Arabic countries. Do not be fooled that these events bring some benefit to the Nation of the Prophet (pbuh) or Islam. No. One puppets are simply being replaced by the others. If the slogans of God and the laws of the Sharia were really proclaimed there, if the Truth were present there, then all the actions would have been carried out by Muslims and these occupiers, the Americans, would have long bombed these cities. Simply, one stooges are being replaced by other stooges. And that is all. Look what happens everywhere where Satan is rejected, where their laws are rejected, everywhere – take Caucasus, take Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Kashmir- look at their methods of destroying our brothers and sisters.

There is no doubt about that: anywhere where is Truth, where events, behind which God would stay, take place, where the laws of God are proclaimed, where the laws of Satan are rejected, everywhere the infidels destroy our Muslim Nation, destroy our brothers, who proclaim these slogans. But the world is somewhat silent.

The whole world looks at us with condemnation. At it looks with sympathy at the actions by the infidels, by the Satanic regimes, and presents its feigned condolences. Why is it so? Because those people who present feigned condolences, those people who are at the top of the Muslim Nation and Muslims governments, they are puppets, they are henchmen of infidels. When some of them go too far and do not satisfy their masters any more, they are destroyed: they are killed or sent to prison or hung as in the case of Saddam Hussein. And they put other puppets at their place.

But I think it is time to awake. Life was given to us by God in order we sacrifice it to God. And it doesn’t matter how many thousand years we live in this world, our life will be taken by God in any case. Is it not better to bring our life as a gift to God ourselves and to fight in truth on the path of God in order to establish the word of God? What is more sacred for a man than to enter the Paradise? God willing, I hope that my words will open the hearts of our brothers and sisters. God willing, I hope that at least one brother or one sister looks through a clean lens at the events which happen in the world and at least one head in a Muslim community gets free from the garbage that those Satanic regimes put in it.

Today, we, the holy warriors of Caucasus, wage the Holy War in the name of God and in the name of God only, only in order to establish the word of God in Caucasus.

If you are interested in the events that are happening in Caucasus, then ask: why did out ancestors fight? Why is the Caucasian part of the Nation of the Prophet (pbuh) is scattered throughout the world? Why didn’t many generations of them ever see their homeland and died in other countries? They never saw their homeland. Why did that happen?

This is already a law of injustice, this is a law of Satan. There are peoples in Caucasus that have been totally eliminated. That is why we want to stop this injustice, it should not be so. Because God bestowed upon us our land, and God bestowed upon us our religion. God ordered us to wage the Holy War for our religion, for our land and for our honor. Therefore, we, the holy warriors of Caucasus, God willing, are carrying out the God’s order and, God willing, we will continue to carry it out. God willing, we will strive to establish the word of God on this land. And, God willing, even if there is no more Abu Osman, then, God willing, the generation that comes after us will establish the word of God.

These special operations, which are being carried out on the territory of Russia, they will be carried out also in the future, no doubt, because there will be hundreds of brothers among us who are ready to sacrifice themselves for the sake of establishing the word of God and for the sake of revenge against the enemies of God because they are the enemies of God. God willing, I demonstrate again to you, I demonstrate to the Putin’s regime out there in Moscow that we do not carry out these operations on a regular basis because we want to demonstrate to the people, to the chauvinistic people, to the chauvinistic regime of Russia that we can carry out these operations at anytime, wherever we want to and whenever we want to.

This is a further demonstration of the fact that we are capable to carry out these operations regularly, to carry out deeper operations, more aggressive operations against you. But I would like not to shed so much blood and not to make such enormous sacrifices, I would like that Russia thinks it over and leaves Caucasus.

But I would like to ask again the idiots who now hide under the slogans of Democracy, in England or in other places, in Saudia or Pakistan or in other places, come on: where and when was freedom achieved without victims? Where and when was freedom gained without war? Where and when was freedom won without blood and tears?

Show me at least one place. Look at the states that make these declarations – America, Russia, China. Look, how many sacrifices they made when they reached their independence, when they established their Satanic regimes, look how many human sacrifices they made. Why was it necessary to make them? They had to submit to China because the Chinese have an ancient religion and China has the largest population. So why are they now trying to deprive us of that? It won’t do, God willing. We also have a right for our freedom and the freedom of our religion. And beyond that, we have an order from Allah to fight and destroy you because you are the enemies of Allah.

God willing, I think that my words today (I will pray God) were useful for the Muslims, were useful for our brothers and sisters. With this I conclude my address to you, God willing. And in the future, I also hope to see you and hear from you (Prayer).

We pray for the well-being of all of you by the Grace of God for Whom is all praise and Who is the Master of the whole Universe.

May peace, mercy, and blessings of God be upon you!

God is Great! God is Great! God is Great!

NOTE: The below video is the official claim of responsibility for the Domodedovo attacks, which occurred two weeks ago. This video comes on the heels of another video release two days ago where Umarov visited the base for the Caucasus Emirate’s Riyāḍ us-Ṣāliḥīn Martyrs Brigade, which you can watch here. Since I don’t know Russian I am relying on the Kavkaz-Jihād Blogs understanding of the video where the administrator of the blog states regarding this video (the way the administrator discusses the CE and Umarov should not be mistaken as my opinion):

In his statement, the Caucasus Emirate Amir says that he had ordered the attack in Moscow and that such operations will undoubtedly continue in the future. The Amir says that the Muslims of the Caucasus are at war with the Russian occupation army, in the name of Allah, to defend Islam and the people’s right to dignity, to liberate the land of Caucasus Muslims and to establish law and justice. It is to be recalled that earlier, Dokku Abu Uthman made a statement at the base of the Martyr Brigade Riyad-us-Saliheen together with the Amir of Martyr’s Brigade, Khamzat (ha) and a Mujahid named Seyfullah (ra) who has been sent to Moscow to carry the martyrdom operation. KC publishes the new statement by the Caucasus Emirate Emir Dokku Abu Uthman without cuts and omissions.

UPDATE 2/12 8:33 AM: Here is an English translation of the below video message via the Kavkaz-Jihād Blog (unedited):


A’ûdhu Billah min Ash-Shaytân Ar-Rajîm. Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim, Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil ‘alamin, wa Salat wa Salam ala Nabiyina Muhammad, wa ala Ahlihi wa Sahabihi Ajma’in !
I seek refuge in Allah, from Satan the accursed. In the name of Allah, the Merciful, Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds, and peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and compagnons.


“If you’re Muslim, you must understand that winning or losing depends only from Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, the Creator of all things, the Mighty, the Wise!”
Allah is the Creator of heaven and earth, to Him belongs the dominion, He gives life and death, only Him is worthy to be feared! He created man, granted him reason, He submitted to him the mountains, seas, oceans, and he is happy with it. He granted him subsistence, enriched the earth with various fruits and man loves the sweetnesses of this life! He gave a heart that feels joy, sorrow, love and man saw no sense in living without these feelings.


Nobody knows man better than his Creator, He said: «Verily my mercy overcomes my anger!» (Hadith from Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 93, Number 501). He did not missed anything, He gave everything man needed for this life! And suddenly we see him ungrateful, arguing about the signs of Allah, a stubborn man who rejected his Lord, using the benefits of this life against his own Creator. But Allah said «Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity […]». (Surat Al-Baqarah : 286)


And He said: «O mankind, worship your Lord, who created you and those before you, that you may become righteous. [He] who made for you the earth a bed [spread out] and the sky a ceiling and sent down from the sky, rain and brought forth thereby fruits as provision for you. So do not attribute to Allah equals while you know [that there is nothing similar to Him]. And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a surah the like thereof and call upon your witnesses other than Allah , if you should be truthful. But if you do not – and you will never be able to – then fear the Fire, whose fuel is men and stones, prepared for the disbelievers». (Surat Al-Baqarah : 21-24)


The desire to acquire wealth and the fear of the enemy are two characteristics which are the reasons why the people stray from the straight path. As for those who are dazzled by the wealth of worldly life, Allah said: «And present to them the example of the life of this world, [its being] like rain which We send down from the sky, and the vegetation of the earth mingles with it and [then] it becomes dry remnants, scattered by the winds. And Allah is ever, over all things, Perfect in Ability». (Surat Al-Kahf : 45)


A man who believes in Allah, performs Namaz (prayer), but when Allah is testing him to see his sincerity by enemies (1), who began to fight against him, [then] because of his fear, he is ready to submit to the giaours (the infidels). If he sees that the believers prevail, he says: I’m with you believers, I’m with you. What is the position of this man before Allah? Allah said: «And of the people are some who say, “We believe in Allah ,” but when one [of them] is harmed for [the cause of] Allah , they consider the trial of the people as [if it were] the punishment of Allah . But if victory comes from your Lord, they say, “Indeed, We were with you.” Is not Allah most knowing of what is within the breasts of all creatures?» (Surat Al-`Ankabūt : 10)
There is no doubt that fear is experienced by all people. Fear is a feeling that Allah has bestowed upon mankind, so people are afraid of Him alone, and [so they] do not transgress the laws which He established on this earth. However the people also use their fear [as an excuse] before those who have only a temporary authority, before the negligible people who are not afraid of their Lord and who decided to replace His laws, by their laws, and called it the “world order”.


For what reasons the laws of Russia are established in our land?! We are fighting against them because they decided that they were “smarter” than the Creator of heaven and earth, because they overthrew his laws, and established defective and fictional laws invented by fools who decided that they could remain unpunished for such acts. They fight against us, saying that they fight against wickedness and to establish order, but Allah said: «And when it is said to them, “Do not cause corruption on the earth,” they say, “We are but reformers.” Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not. And when it is said to them, “Believe as the people have believed,” they say, “Should we believe as the foolish have believed?” Unquestionably, it is they who are the foolish, but they know [it] not.» (Surat Al-Baqarah : 11-13)


O Muslims, o our brothers and sisters, o people who consider yourselves as a part of the Ummah of Muhammad, peace be upon him, we are from among you! Here, there are people who are ready to defend you, by their blood! Why do you turn away from the people among you, who have not recognized fear, and who go to die for the sake of truth, to defend the honor of the Islamic Ummah in violent battles with the disbelievers?! Are you not you tired to invent reasons to blame us, only to protect yourselves from the evil of the giaours?


How many lives they’ve [already] ruined! What they yet must inflict on you, so that you change your minds? You are wasting irreplaceable moments of this life in empty speeches, watching TV shows and movies. You are afraid of the giaours and you want to protect yourselves and your families from their evil, but they already killed you! Their propaganda has [already] subjugated your hearts! You seek the favors of the disbelievers through (2) the wrath of Allah, and Allah will give you something which you aspire. But is fear will be an excuse to justify yourselves [of your submission to the disbelievers], before Allah on the Day of Jugement? Allah said: «Indeed, those whom the angels take [in death] while wronging themselves – [the angels] will say, “In what [condition] were you?” They will say, “We were oppressed in the land.” The angels will say, “Was not the earth of Allah spacious [enough] for you to emigrate therein?” For those, their refuge is Hell – and evil it is as a destination.» (Surat An-Nisā’ : 97)


Yes, we are few, and it is one of the reasons of your fear. The enemies are many and they are everywhere, but if Allah was not on our side, then there would be no Mujahideen – whose aim is to seek His favors. How many times in the Muslim history, numerically small groups of Mujahideen defeated the giaours armies?! If you are Muslim, you must understand that winning or losing depends only from Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, the Creator of all things, the Mighty, the Wise!


Know that the worldly life is just like a glow, it sparkles like a ring. In contact with the sunlight there is a flash and then it goes out. A glow and then it goes out. It’s very quick, isn’t it? This moment (this life) will pass and we will bear [our deeds] on our shoulders, and only imperishable good deeds will be beneficial before our Lord! So, invoke Allah, by saying:“O Allah, Lord of Jibril, Mika’il, and Israfil, Bringer of the heavens and the earth into being, Knower of the unseen and visible, it is You who judges between Your slaves concerning the things about which they disagree. Guide us to the truth in respect of the things about which there is disagreement by Your permission. You guide whomever You will to a straight path.”
A qulu qauli Hada, wa astaghfiru wa Aley wa Lyakum, fa staghfiruhu atubu ileyk, innahu hu al-Ghafur ur-Rahim! Al-hamdu lillahi rabbil ‘alamin!

Translation from IslamDin by the Kavkaz-Jihad blog.
(1) In other words, enemies sent by Allah to test the believers.
(2) In others words, despite His wrath.

NOTE: The South-West sector is considered part of the Kabarda-Balkaria-Karachai province of the Caucasus Emirate. According to the Kavkaz-Jihād Blog the below message asks Muslims to join the Mujāhidīn and to go beyond the ‘fear’ instilled by the infidels through their propaganda.
