The World’s Bravest People
by Muhammad alShareef

I decided to post this audio lecture/khutbah by Ustadh Muhammad alShareef here because to be honest, I don’t think I have heard a khutbah more powerful than this, ever, in my whole life! Masha’Allah it seems like there are a lot of emotions that are being expressed by Ustadh in this khutbah and almost everyone I have given a copy of this khutbah to has said the same thing, they all have been moved by it. If you ever feel that you are being neglectful about your brothers in the rest of the world listen to this. I dont want to describe the content of this khutbah, but I guarentee you that inshaAllah you will have your heart beating and blood flowing faster than normal after hearing this awesome lecture.

    subannaAllah, it was good.

    but, I think he quotes inaccuracies from the Chechen war, although I think he might do it for good intentions.

    yeah, it looks like it was done years ago. Qoqaz hasn’t existed for maybe at least 4 years now.

    I skimmed through the part about chechnya, but according to historians/human rights groups 100,000 “civilians” didn’t die as a result of the first war. The figure I last heard from a group like amnesty, was 90-100 thousand Chechens (fighters and civies) dead from both wars. The first war was actually a small military engagement nothing like the second. There’s a book I have called Tombstone of Russian Power that is about the first war. It was fought by Moscow in the way the Iraq 2003 war was faught (is being faught today). The Russian invasion was small and was meant to restore pro-moscow chechens, it dragged on and they left. The second invasion was full scale.

    Also he points out the ineptitude or the lack of training/equipment of the Chechens. That’s just not true. Most of the Chechen men, especially the leaders were in the Soviet Army when they invaded Afghanistan that’s why so many were already skilled soldiers. Their weapons were identical to the Russian weapons. AK74’s not older 47’s. I’ve seen pictures lately of them having the newest polymer models of the AK74 and that means they’re being supplied with the best possible. They were in fact very skilled before either war, every male was given a firearm at a young age, the author of the book I have said the boys 12-16 all had small handguns on them when the war broke out. So it wasn’t as much a david vs. goliath situation as was made out to be. The lead Russian commander when they toppled Grozny in 2000 said “we’re fighting a professionally armed and trained army of about 20,000.”

    Allah knowsbest.

    As salaamu ‘alaykum,

    First of all…the first time I ever Muhammad AlShareef speak was a two sided tape I picked up at an ISNA convention which had “When I grow up I wanna be Abu Bakr” on one side “World’s Bravest People” on the other. I had never heard of Ustadh and just bought the tape based on the titles. I wore out the tape from listening and when I heard AlMaghrib was starting I flew to Canada to take Touched by An Angel because I loved that tape so much.

    And as much as I love all of what I’ve heard from Ustadh since then, I’m still trying to equal the EmanRush I got from that first tape.

    right in two,

    Jazzak Allaahu for your info but I gotta disagree with your conclusions.

    Chechnya has a population of just over one million. Russia is the biggest country in the world by land mass with a population of over 140 million.

    You speak about having the same firearms but Russia has tanks, Russia has an air force…I mean its like the South Side of Chicago holding out in rebellion against the U.S. government. No doubt many bros on the South Side have “military” training and high powered firearams but is ridiculous to see the struggle as anything other than David and Goliath.

    And Allaah knows best.

    I encourage people to also check out Suleman Ahmer’s (May Allaah preserve him) lecture Jihad: The Misunderstood Word (MeccaCentric)and his book “The Embattled Innocence” for first hand accounts from a Muslim relief worker about the struggles in Bosnia and Chechnya.

    right in two,

    Also, I am not an expert on this so I won’t claim to offer my own judgement but there are credible estimates that put the number of civilians killed in the first Chechen war at up to 100,000. This is the number that was arrived at by the Chechen authorities.

    Obviously there is a range of estimates and they probably took a high end figure but I don’t see any harm in relying on their judgment.

    The numbers from the second phase seem to be even harder to get a handle on.

    Allaah knows best.

    As Salaam Alaykum Wa Rahamtullah

    JazakAllahU kahyran – Abu Noor and rightintwo.

    None of the other stuff has the same emotion and that type of feeling you get like World’s Bravest People, its ranked too high on the EmanRush scale. I remember maybe History of the khulafaa can come close, but not close enough, also there was this very emotional thing(not really a lecture or anything) he did during Tafseer Surat Al Baqara in Houston talkign about AlMaghrib and the purpose and what his plans for it were, and it get real personal, that gave me a fuzzy feeling iside.

    Allahu Alam

    Abu Noor al-Irlandee,

    I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt, I’ve only read a few books on both Chechen wars, and from what I remember 100,000 or more was the tally at about 2002-03 during the second war. I think this was quoted in the kavkaz linked documentary that was on PBS’ wide angle “Greetings from Grozny.” But I could be wrong that might be a figure that they had for the first war since the second war hasn’t finished. I know people that are said to be missing (not confirmed dead or alive) is in the 200-300 thousand range.

    As for david vs. goliath, soldier to soldier, not really, the common russian conscript that fought both the 1st and 2nd wars, was basically trained, the chechens, however had been firearm owning people for centuries (they’re more or less banned in Russia and have been since communism – firearms-). As for the Russian special forces? Obviously, there’s no competition there. I agree, it is in numbers overwelming but I was talking about skill of fighters, and it wasn’t a mighty army vs. peasants, not in the least. And I’m not sure a comparison of people on the south side of Chicago fighting American soldiers would be a good comparison. What does “military” training mean in your mind?

    Chechens are very brave, but they are also the meanest and most dishonest.
