Muhammad Amin

With the hope of Ottoman assistance, the North Caucasus mountaineers’ freedom from the claws of Russian colonialism seemed closer than ever. After a long wait, Muhammad Amin's wishes finally came true. The local holy war took on an imperial character. On 9 October 1853, five days after the Ottoman Empire officially declared war on Russia, the Sultan sent a decree [firman] to imam Shamil calling for jihad. [1] Like the imam, the naib did not intend to remain passive in the expected struggle. He continued his vigorous campaign to procure and enlist a large number of local fighters for the joint offensive in Circassia.

To prepare for the planned operation, the Porte ...

Muhammad Amin

Muhammad (Asiyalo) Amin ibn Hajjio al-Honodi al-Daghestani, Shamil's third naib, was the most significant deputy of the imam in the Northwest Caucasus in the mid 19th century. He occupied an important role in Circassian social, religious and political life for more than a decade (1848-1859), mainly among the egalitarian sub-ethnic group, the Abdzakh. His main goals, within Shamil’s jihad (holy war) concept, were "to raise the word of God,” [1] to bring all the divided Circassian sub-ethnic groups to join forces "into one combat body,” [2] and, finally, to join this united force with the imam and all the people of the North Caucasus in a concerted attack against Russian colonial expansion.

Muhammad Amin was born around 1818 or 1819 in the Avar village of Honoda in Daghestan. According to Shamil, ...

Sy Adyghe! I am a Circassian! Statement of "Haekure Habzaere" newspaper editorship


29 July 2010 - 11:05 am - NatPress 

As a result of the genocide committed by the Russian state, instead of the united, integral nation, on the historical Native land only small, separated ethnic islands of Circassians - by the banks of Terek, Baksan, Malka, Zelenchuk, Laba, Kuban, and the Black sea coast - remained. During the Soviet time the decision to declare the rests of the dispersed people was made as four separate peoples: Adygs, Kabardians, Circassians and Shapsugs (despite of the general self-name and the one language), having created for them four different autonomies:

1. Circassian (Adygeyan) autonomous area (center - Krasnodar, since 1936 – Maykop town). In 1927 it was renamed into Adygeyskaya autonomous region.

2. Circassian autonomous region (center – Cherkessk town). In 1957 it was transformed into Karachaevo-Circassian autonomous region.

3. Kabardian autonomous region (center - ...
