A Russian Reborn who has accepted the Shia religion said: If I see Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s) one day, I will say that I am ready to sacrifice my whole being to him and I will do whatever he orders.
Dimitri Kartashev, during a visit to the world center of Hazrat Wali Asr, pointed out that for six years he has been inclined towards the religion of Islam and the Shia religion, he said about the reasons for his inclination towards this heavenly religion: I read many books about religion and about Christianity I studied a lot and realized that the Christian religion has issues that this religion does not meet my needs.
He added: After that, I studied the Qur’an and when I read this holy book, I found that the Qur’an is true and gives man the right spirit, and after two years of study, he finally converted to the Islamic religion.
This Russian commentator, who started praying six years ago, said: I understood that the Quran has very clear points about monotheism, when I was studying Christianity, I did not understand what is meant by the father, the son of the Holy Spirit, and that Jesus is the son of God. Where did they get it from, but the Qur’an clearly said that God is one, and this issue was very important to me.
He added: I also studied a lot about the difference between Shia and Sunni until I finally realized the legitimacy of Shia because the Shia belief is very clear and another important point that made me become Shia is Imamate. Shia has 12 imams and the prophet himself has hadiths on this topic and I found that the truth is with Shia. The Shia belief clearly defined the hadith of the Prophet and the Shia arguments are correct.
He considered moving on the straight path as one of the distinctive features of the religion of Islam and stated: After I converted to Islam, I felt very good because of moving on the straight and right path.
Kartashev, who chose the name Amin after converting to Islam; stated: I introduce Islam to my father, mother, sister and friends, of course, it is very difficult to work in this field because they think that all Muslims are violent like Wahhabis, and I also always try to introduce Shia Islam to them. Of course, in this field, I have been successful in introducing Islam to a number of my friends.
He said about the situation of Muslims in Russia: The first problem of Muslims in Russia is that we have to live among non-believers and it is difficult to see the commission of sin and corruption. Of course, the Russian government has a problem with the Wahhabis, but we are we have no problem with the government.
This Russian Reborn said about the state of acceptance of religion by young Russians: a group of young people are not looking for these issues and are looking for emotional issues, and unfortunately the majority of young people have these conditions, but a group of young people are thoughtful and they accept Islam and Shia Islam is very interesting for them and if this religion is presented to them, they will accept Islam.
Referring to the commonalities of Russian culture and Shia culture, he stated: Russians pay special attention to justice and there is a spirit of justice in all Shia issues, and therefore, Shia justice is directed towards the people of Russia.
He paid attention to the apocalypse and the future in the Russian people and stated: Islam can be promoted in Russia with regard to justice, saviorism, and the apocalypse, and Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s) should be introduced to the people of Russia. .
Dr. Kartashev said about the apocalypse and the advent of the Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s): With the advent of Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s), the world will be filled with justice and all oppression will end.
He added: The personality and characteristics of Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s) had a great impact on my conversion to Islam because I understood that the great Shiite man is infallible in the current situation and we must wait for this heavenly leader and we must believe that Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s) will definitely appear.
He said: If I see Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s) one day, I will say that I am ready to sacrifice my whole being to him and I will do whatever he orders.
In the end, this Russian Reborn pointed out: We must praise God Almighty and the pure Imams (peace be upon them) and introduce them to the whole world, and we must also introduce the Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s), to the world, we must preach about Islam, Tawheed, follow Islamic etc. in different places.
