Truly, to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return
Alim Zankishiyev (aka Ubaydullah), Emir of the Mujahideen of the United Province of Kabarda, Balkaria and Karacha, martyred today, on 4th Jumada al-Awwain in an unequal battle with infidels and apostates in the city of Nalchik, Province of KBK, Central sector.
Allah the Almighty says in the Qur'an:
"Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties [in exchange] for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed. [It is] a true promise [binding] upon Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur'an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? So rejoice in your transaction which you have contracted. And it is that which is the great attainment".
(The Holy Quran, Surah 9. "Repentance", verse 111)
The today's battle was the last for Emir Ubaydullah. It began early in the morning, when the troops of infidels and apostates of the intelligence and police surrounded a private house on Komsomolskaya street, in Nalchik.
After the first exchange of fire with Emir of the Mujahideen, the invaders claimed that 5 Mujahideen were blocked and surrounded in the house. They [also] proclaimed the regime of their so-called "counter-terrorist operation".
The battle lasted for several hours. Emir Ubaydullah was holding his defense [alone] all this time. When his time came, Allah honored him with martyrdom in His path, Insha'Allah.
As usual, the infidels and apostates told nothing about their losses.
Allah the Almighty said:
"And the Horn will be blown, and whoever is in the heavens and whoever is on the earth will fall dead except whom Allah wills. Then it will be blown again, and at once they will be standing, looking on".
(The Holy Quran, Surah 39. "The Troops", verse 68)
And when Sa'id bin Jubayr was asked about those whom Allah will exclude from this verse, he replied:
"They are the Martyrs. Everyone else will die, while they are surrounding the Throne of Allah with their swords in their hands".
(Ibn Mubarak - Bukhari in Al Kabir - Abu Naim at-Tabari in his Tafseer - Suyuti says it is authentic - Hakim (At-Thahabi authenticated it))
Abdullah bin Amr bin al Aas narrated: The Messenger of Allah said:
"[...] On the Day of Judgment Allah will call Paradise and it would come with all its beauty and splendor. Allah will then say: "Where are my servants who fought in my cause and were killed or harmed and made Jihad for me? Let them enter into Paradise without reckoning" The angels would then come and prostrate to Allah and say: "Our Lord, we glorify you and praise you day and night, who are these people whom you preferred over us?" Allah will say: "These are the ones who fought and were hurt in my cause".
The angels would then visit them from every gate saying:
"Salaam to you for your steadfastness. What a blessed dwelling".
(Ahmad - Hakim (Hadith authenticated by At-Thahabi)
Ibn Abbas narrated that the Messenger of Allah said:
"When your brothers were killed in Uhud, Allah placed their souls inside green birds that tend to the rivers of Paradise and eat from its fruits. They then return to golden lamps hanging in the shade of the Throne. When they tasted the delight of their food, drink and dwelling, they said, ‘We wish that our brothers knew what Allah gave us so that they will not abandon Jihad or warfare.' Allah said, ‘I will convey the news for you'."
(Abu Dawud - Muslim)
Then Allah revealed the verses:
"Think not of those who are killed in the Way of Allah as dead. Nay, they are alive, with their Lord, and they have provision.
Rejoicing in what Allah has bestowed upon them of His bounty, and they receive good tidings about those [to be martyred] after them who have not yet joined them - that there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.
They receive good tidings of favor from Allah and bounty and [of the fact] that Allah does not allow the reward of believers to be lost".
(The Holy Quran, Surah 3. "The Family Of 'Imran", verses 169-171)
