IMAM SHAMIL IS A GREAT PERSONALITY IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND

On February 4, 1871, the leader of the faithful, Imam Shamil (K. S.), died.
Imam Shamil is a great personality in the history of mankind.
It is impossible to talk about him without using superlative epithets. Imam Shamil is a man with a capital letter, a great leader, a commander, a Tariqa sheikh, a theologian, a politician, an ideal to follow and a national hero of the Caucasian peoples. His characteristics were deep piety, justice, sincerity, and love for his people.
One historical document reveals to us the amazing events related to the last minutes of Imam Shamil's life. This is an excerpt from a letter from Abdurakhman at-Teletl, who, while in Arabia, witnessed the death of Imam Shamil. The letter was sent from Medina to Dagestan to an unknown recipient. In our time, it fell into the hands of the famous Arabist Nurmagomedov Muhammad Haji, who translated it.
When he saw the dome of the Prophet's mosque (peace and blessings be upon him) (meaning the mazar on the grave in the shape of a dome), the imam prayed: "Almighty Allah, make me a neighbor of this Prophet of Yours, Muhammad.
One day, as he was sitting near the grave of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), the Prophet appeared to him (peace and blessings be upon him).
From there, the imam returned home trembling. After that, his body began to weaken.
He died in love with Allaga. At that time, a sheikh named Saigid Hussein lived in Medina and the imam died with his head on his lap.
Imam Shamil was a man who had reached great levels in the knowledge of the Almighty.
The funeral of Imam Shamil was attended by big alims and other famous people of the city of Medina. And janaza-namaz (funeral prayer) was performed in Ravza, in the mosque of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). Many people mourned him. Women and children climbed onto the roofs of houses, accompanied the imam, said that the death of the emir of the people of Gazavat was a big disaster. A lot of people gathered before taking the body to the cemetery. There were many willing people who were ready to take Shamil's body to the Bakiya cemetery, because they wanted to receive Allah's reward from this.
And I am Abdurakhman from Teletl. The year is 1871."
