I just came from Kyiv. And all I can say is that it was an amazing trip. Muslims in Ukraine are a true example for all Muslims. They work perfectly, are wonderfully organized, and are friendly and hospitable. Every time I come to Ukraine, whether Kyiv, Simferopol, or any other city, I feel myself to be at home. And all thanks to you, my dears.
In a relatively short time, Muslims in Ukraine were able to organize the work of several Islamic centers across the country. In Kyiv, it’s a huge five-story building, where there is a mosque, a large library, classrooms, sport halls, and there will be secondary school soon, inshallah.
Muslims in Ukraine actively supported the democratic changes in the country, providing all possible support to their countrymen and have always had a position in the events happening in the country. Ukrainian Mufti Said Ismagilov willingly, has answered non-Muslims’ questions, lectured and given sermons on Maidan, all of which have enjoyed great popularity.
The Muslims of Crimea have actively defended the integrity of the country with deed and word. Instructive posts of Sheikh Seyran Arifov are on Facebook with his exhortations and preaching. And every single word is connected only to Islam, Islamic morals and the rules of Allah. Mashallah.
Muslims are showing in practice what Islam means, and how cool it is to be a Muslim. They show, by their own example, the beauty of Islam and the justice of God. Let us pray for them, ummah, so that they all turn out in the best way.
Subhanallah, I can talk about them for hours. Ukrainian Muslims.
It was the most beautiful trip, guys! You’re great! You’re awesome! You’re an example for all of our Umma. May Allah bless you and help you in absolutely everything.
