Mufti of the RAMU UMMA Said Ismagilov officially resigned. Sheikh Murat Suleymanov, imam of the Mosque of the Islamic Cultural Center of Lviv, has been appointed interim Mufti.

This is reported by the RAMU UMMA website.

Sheikh Murat was Said Ismagilov's Deputy for several years.

A general meeting of the Religious Administration of Muslims of Ukraine Ummah was scheduled in March 2022, but the event was postponed indefinitely due to the full-scale Russian invasion. At this meeting, Mufti Said Ismagilov planned to announce the end of his term of office.

Sheikh Said served as Mufti for more than 13 years. In 2009, religious communities from different regions of Ukraine united in the RAMU “Ummah” and elected the Mufti, chairman of the board and the board members. The first Mufti was Sheikh Said Ismagilov, who held this position until recently. Throughout these years, Said-Hazrat worked hard for the benefit of Ukrainian Muslims and Ukraine.

According to the website of the RAMU Ummah, Sheikh Said has always been together with the Ukrainian people — both in times of relative stability and during periods of severe trials: the revolution of dignity, at the beginning of the aggression of the Russian Federation in 2014 and during the occupation of part of our territory.

After a large-scale Russian offensive in Ukraine, Said Ismagilov went to defend the Homeland.
