Representatives of Muslim communities praised the high level of organization of the International Religious Forum in St. Petersburg
Representatives from almost 50 countries took part in the event. Compared to the previous International Religious Forum in 2021, this forum gathered almost twice as many guests. Among the participants were religious figures from Russia.
The Deputy Mufti of Volgograd has been living in Russia for a long time. This forum turned out to be extremely important for him, because here were discussed issues that are of particular concern to all mankind today. Hussein Walid could not avoid such a process as the Special Military Operation in Ukraine.
“I live in Nalchik. I have a lot of experience in religious affairs and in international relations. Of course, we thank you for the invitation to St Petersburg, the cultural capital of Russia. All Russians, I think, love St Petersburg as a cultural city, a beautiful city and an old capital that will remain in the hearts of people who love Russia. But, as everyone knows, nowadays the attack against Russia is not only a Western attack to destroy civilizations. Unfortunately, the last 20 years have been won in the West by Satanists in general. Satanists are trying to destroy the family, to destroy man, even when, starting from a young age, to bring him up like boy is a girl and girl is a boy. They mock the children, they mock the family. And they of course want to spread this culture forcibly all over the world. Poor countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, who resist. They can make a coup against that country or economic sanctions. But the turn has come to Russia. This beautiful country, a big country that holds within itself a great, ancient culture, where Orthodoxy and Islam are perfectly neighbouring. And the people of Russia and the Slavs and all Muslims love Russia very much, love their culture. I think that Russia is now protecting the whole world and humanity. The culture that we have inherited for thousands of years. Russia is fighting against Satanists. And God forbid if this wild west wins, but it will not win, because the Lord God, Allah is with Russia,” Hussein Walid said at the St Petersburg International Religious Forum.
According to him, Russia is now defending all countries, all nations, and even decent people in the West who disagree with the policies of the United States, England, and the West. Moreover, even they are being defended by Russia. According to Hussein Walid, Russia is now defending everyone.
“I am sure Russia wins. Our soldiers who are in Donbass, in Ukraine are holy people. I, as a religious figure, consider myself lower than these people who are defending the whole humanity, all of us. And God willing, we can support them, pray for them. And if there’s an opportunity to be there for them. These are great men. They are soldiers of God. I ask Allah to bless all of them. Our dead in Donbass, that the Lord God accept them as martyrs. Men, women who were wounded, that God help to heal them. Bow and respect to these people. And to our president. A sober, wise man, a patriot of Russia. We love him. To his team – God give them good luck. Let Russia always be ahead and defeat this wild West. And let us replace their low culture with a normal and human one,” summarized Hussein Walid.
Khazrataly Dzasezhev, Mufti, Chairman of the Spiritual Board of Muslims of Kabardino-Balkaria, believes that the PIRF platform exists, among other things, to prevent the West from imposing its values on the rest of the world once again.
“Praise be to Almighty Allah, who has gathered us here today to discuss an issue that is topical today. The issue that concerns us all today is the spirituality and morality of people living in our country. Today we know what a powerful propaganda, what a powerful wave of appeal is coming to the Russian people from the West, from European countries with their “advanced” culture. Unfortunately, for many years we have been imposed an ideology and culture alien to us.
And of course, all this has brought some results. First of all, I would like to say that we should listen to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who signed a law on preserving the spiritual and moral value of our country just last November. And I think that the current religious forum will also become one of the levers for the implementation of this law”, – said Khazrataly Dzasezhev.
According to him, today the West and Europe impose unconventional values on us, and today it is very important for us to move away from those values that they want to impose on us.
“In my opinion, it is clear to all sensible people: what is being imposed today “Daddy No. 1”, “Daddy No. 2″ – that’s what they want to impose on us is Satanism. Erasing the boundaries of female and male, let’s say. This is all very wild for us. It is wild for us and we need to get away from it. And for this purpose, first of all, I think, to help us is to believe in the Creator and to follow one’s religion, to follow one’s faith. To bring people back to faith and on the basis of the Almighty teachings sent to us by the Almighty Creator, to stand on the right true path,” says Khazrataly Dzasezhev.
Mr Dzasezhev is sure: our goal today is to bring this to people, to remind them there is only one Almighty Creator who created everybody. That there are prophets who brought us scriptures, instructions from the Almighty Creator, which we should follow. And by following these scriptures, Dzasezhev believes, our society will live, first of all, on the true path, which will lead humanity to bliss, when we will return to the face of the Almighty our Creator.
Recall that the next International Religious Forum will be held in 2025, it will also be hosted by the Russian city of St. Petersburg.
