Mufti Said Ismagilov urged the Muslims not to become mercenaries in Russia's war against Ukraine
"We have learned that the criminal Russian Putin regime wants to recruit mercenaries from different countries to use them in the war against Ukraine. I call on Muslims around the world not to take the side of the criminal, aggressor, attacker, not to take the side of Russia, which attacked and is killing us. It attacked our free and independent Ukraine, where Muslims lived happily and freely professed Islam. We are rightful citizens of our country and are now suffering from Russian aggression," the Mufti stressed.
He warned Muslims who become Putin's mercenaries not to take the side of the crime, which is a great sin before Allah.
"I call on the Muslims of the world to take the side of Ukraine, help us with their prayers, donations, and support because this is very important for us. I call on all mercenaries from the Middle East and other countries who have volunteered to be on the side of the Russian occupation not to do so. This will bring you neither happiness nor profit, but will be a great crime," Mufti Ismagilov urged Muslims.
He assured that the Muslims of Ukraine have already come to the defense of their lands: "We are defending our state and will continue to defend it. I ask Allah to keep all mercenaries, especially Muslims, and all people from making such a big mistake. Be people of peace, justice and kindness."
