The Command of the Caucasus Emirate officially announced the martyrdom of the Emir Dokku Abu Usman.
Dokku Abu Usman (Dokku Umarov) went to jihad in 1994, as soon as he learned about the invasion of Chechnya by Russian troops. He gave up his lucrative business in Russia and returned home.
Since then, Dokku Abu Usman was forced to leave Chechnya for several months only once, at the beginning of 2000 due to a severe wound. After treatment, he returned home and continued the Jihad.
After the first Russian-Chechen war of 1994-96, Ichkerian President Aslan Maskhadov appointed Dokku Umarov Secretary of the Security Council. After the martyrdom of Chechen Emir Abdul Khalim Sadullayev in 2006, he became the head of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.
In 2007, Dokku Abu Usman raised the banner of monotheism and proclaimed the Caucasus Emirate.
This move was met with hostility by secularists of various types but was unambiguously supported by Caucasus Mujahideen, united under the single banner of Oneness.
Dokku Umarov gave 20 years of his life to the Jihad. Huge working-capacity, softness and consistency earned him love and respect of ordinary Mujahideen.
He enjoyed enormous prestige among Mujahideen all over the world. His opinion was listened to. His word was significant for fighting Muslims.
Dokku Abu Usman joined the group of sincere monotheists who fulfilled their contract with Allah till the very end. This was the group of the succeeded, about whom Allah said:
And never think of those who have been killed for the cause of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive with their Lord, receiving 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 Koran, Chapter 3. "The Family of 'Imran", verses 169-171)
The lifespan of every person is predetermined by Allah. No one among creations is able to retard or quicken it.
Everyone will be resurrected at the moment when he met his hour!
Everyone will be resurrected with those, with whom he stayed in this world!
So let each of us look at the path he chose and who his comrades are, while there is still time.
And Allah is sufficient for us as Observer and Witness Who makes His own account and submits it on the Day of Judgment!
